Yes on the one hand it is true, that one does not get so involved with the new age movement that you think the SAME AS THE REST of those belonging to the cult – functioning on a sub-intelligence level aka zombie level.
And then on the other hand I have to disagree, because OTHERKIN and new agers DO NOT BELIEVE in oneness in general.
Despite proclaiming to practice principles such as NAMASTE (THE GOOD IN YOU SEE THE GOD IN YOU), love thy neighbour as thyself and In la’kech ala Kin (you are just another me) – they DO NOT DO IT… they compete with all humans, and see themselves as superior to other human beings and also other new agers.
Why do I say this?
Because it took me a year to realize how full of nonsense they actually were….and how hypocritical they actually are. Thank Goodness they trolled me hard enough to start to see their true colours in the end.
Maybe it depends on how you define ONENESS, to me it means TO APPRECIATE THE SPIRIT in someone else as it is in you, or to seek some type of common ground between your own demons (shadow self) and that of another, to have compassion with your fellow human being, because you realize you have the same mistakes…to live in that constant understanding of HUMANS AREN’T PERFECT, to accept yourself and others to be the same in that regard…and then seeking to do something with that compassionate understanding.
New agers lack empathy and compassion, especially when they put themselves on their little pedestals of “i am better than you and the rest of mankind” or “due to the fact that i am otherkin i am so much better than humanity”…kind of attitude that is truly unpleasant and nothing but a nuisance.
As I said in my previous posts already, these people aren’t true seekers……they do not appreciate people for what they are…and hell I do not even think they appreciate themselves for what they really are either…because they do not want to know who they are, hence all the otherkin personas.
I don’t know why there is a constant escape sought from the self in their minds, maybe because the self truly scares them…and that is why they cannot for the love of it make peace with their shadow self to accept it in another, even if they do call themselves werewolves or vampires, or any other creature of darkness…it is just an act…to run away from the inner light that can truly illuminate the mind to a broader understanding of self and the people around you.
They are not philosophers and do not seek the type of understanding I am speaking of…that is why they are just full of guff (rubbish).
They will never have inner peace because of living in this constant state of self-denial.
