Welcome to the Global Watch Weekly Report The New Age Movement is in a class by itself. Unlike most formal religions, it has no holy text, central organization, membership, formal clergy, geographic center, dogma, creed, etc. They often use mutually exclusive definitions for some of their terms. The New Age is in fact a freeflowing spiritual movement; a network of believers and practitioners who share somewhat similar beliefs and practices, which they add on to whichever formal religion that they follow. Their book publishers take the place of a central organization; seminars, conventions, books and informal groups replace of sermons and religious services. Quoting John Naisbitt: "In turbulent times, in times of great change, people head for the two extremes: fundamentalism and personal, spiritual experience...With no membership lists or even a coherent philosophy or dogma, it is difficult to define or measure the unorganized New Age movement. But in every major U.S. and European city, thousands who seek insight and personal growth cluster around a metaphysical bookstore, a spiritual teacher, or an education center." In this edition we take a look at some of the key beliefs and principles of this movement.

THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT Blackberry Under the Spotlight The goals of the New Age movement under which the United Nations operates right now, are the implementation of a New World Messiah. The tools of the new world government which are now in progression are a multi-national international army; an international police force; a World Bank for the economy; a World Government under the United Nations; a World Conservation Bank for wilderness around the world meaning that all green movements will be melded into this new International Bank or will disappear and a new World Religion where all church doctrines will be destroyed at the roots to be replaced by the new religion of the Age of Aquarius.
The New Age Movement (NAM) is both a religious and a social movement. In fact, Western culture is currently experiencing a phenomenal, spiritual, ideological, and sociological shift. It is a religious world view that is alien and hostile to Christianity as well as Islam and Orthodox Judaism. It's a multifocused, multi-faceted synthesis, in varying degrees, of the Far Eastern, mystical religions, mainly Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Western Occultism, adapted to and influenced by Western, materialistic culture. It sometimes appears in secularized forms. The New Age Movement consists of an incredibly huge and well organized network consisting of thousands of groups, trusts, foundations, clubs, lodges, and religious groups whose goal and purpose is to prepare the world to enter the coming "Age Of Aquarius." A small sampling of only a few of the organizations involved would include: Amnesty International, Zero Population Growth, California New Age Caucus, New World Alliance, World Goodwill, The Church Universal and
Triumphant, The Theosophical Society, the Forum, Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose, the Club of Rome, Church Universal & Triumphant, Christian Science, and the Unity School of Christianity. This list, by no means all inclusive, demonstrates the diversity of organizations operating in economic, political, and religious spheres of influence. The New Age movement is not a unified, traditional cult system of beliefs and practices, even though its roots derive from Eastern religions and the occult. It has no official leader, headquarters, nor membership list, but instead is a network of groups working toward specific goals. One of its main goals is to bring to the forefront a one-world leader who is called "The Christ" or "Maitreya." Nevertheless, it is estimated that there are millions of worldwide followers of various New Age practices and/or holders of one or more of the major beliefs of the New Age.
The New Age Movement has gained significant influence, affecting almost every area of the culture including sociology, psychology, medicine, the government, ecology, science, arts, education, the business community, the media, entertainment, sports, and even the church. The movement expresses itself in widely divergent and various mutated forms, from the blatantly obvious to the subtle. It is expressed in organized religious forms such as Scientology, Christian Science, Unity, and even forms of Witchcraft. Yet, it shows up in secular forms as well, in various human potential seminars, and much in between, i.e., transcendental meditation, some alternative holistic health practices, and certain curriculum in public (and private) schools.
THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT Blackberry Under the Spotlight The major goal of the New Age Movement is to bring peace to the world upon entering the Age of Aquarius. This will be accomplished primarily through the leadership of "the Christos" (also known as "Lord Maitreya"), who will supposedly come to teach us to live at peace with each other. “This age will be an age of splendour and of light, because it is the home of the Holy Breath; and the Holy Breath will testify anew for Christ, the Logos of the eternal Love. At first of every age this Logos is made manifest in flesh so man can see and know and comprehend a Love that is not narrow, circumscribed. Twelve times in every revolution of the sun this christed Love of God is made full manifest in flesh upon the planes of earth, and you may read it in Akasha the wondrous lessons that these Christs have taught to man"
Some of the other stated goals of the movement are to establish a World Food Authority, World Water Authority, World Economic Order, and an entirely New World Order. It should be noted here that one of the requirements for a person to enter the New Age is that he or she will have to take what is known as a "Luciferic Initiation," a kind of pledge of allegiance to the Christ of the New Age and to the New World Order. The primary goals of the movement then, are to prepare the world to receive the Christ and to enter the Age of Aquarius, thus establishing the New World Order. The New Age Movement professes a broad-minded openness to all religions, but its basic underlying philosophy represents a carefully calculated undermining of Judeo-Christian and Islamic beliefs with various combinations of gnosticism and occultism. Gnosticism is an ancient world-view stating that Divine essence is the only true or highest reality, and that the unconscious Self of man is actually this essence. It is through intuitional discovery, "visionary experience or initiation into secret doctrine" (not the plenary revelation of propositional truth in the Bible), that man becomes conscious of this true Self. It bears a remarkable resemblance to the apostate world religion that H.G. Wells claimed as his own and predicted would one day take over the world. It also fits the description of "The Plan" for establishing the new world government that is described in various psychic communications from alleged Extra terrestrials and ascended masters which we will see later on.
There is one more connection: the New Age Movement fits the description of the Antichrist's religion -- a rejection of the Judeo-Christian God and the declaration that Self is God. Douglas R. Groothuis, author of Unmasking the New Age and Confronting the New Age, identifies six distinctives of New Age thinking: (1) all is one; (2) all is God; (3) humanity is God; (4) a change in consciousness; (5) all religions are one; and (6) cosmic evolutionary optimism. Norman Geisler details 14 primary "doctrines" of New Age religions: (1) an impersonal god (force); (2) an eternal universe; (3) an illusory nature of matter; (4) a cyclical nature of life; (5) the necessity of reincarnations; (6) the evolution of man into Godhood; (7) continuing revelations from beings beyond the world; (8) the identity of man with God; (9) the need for meditation (or other consciousnesschanging techniques); (10) occult practices (astrology, mediums, etc.); (11) vegetarianism and holistic health; (12) pacifism (or anti-war activities); (13) one world (global) order; and (14) syncretism (unity of all religions).
THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT Blackberry Under the Spotlight occult books, pamphlets, instructions, and tape recordings. Crystals are the favorite New Age object. These are not only thought to have mysterious healing powers, but are considered programmable, like a computer, if one just concentrates hard enough. Other New Age objects would include the rainbow; butterfly; pyramid; triangle; eye in triangle/pyramid; unicorn; Pegasus (winged-horse); swastika; yin-yang; goathead on pentagram; concentric circles; rays of light; crescent Some commonly used New Age terms are: guided moon; etc imagery, reincarnation; positive thinking; human potential; holistic; holographic; synergistic; unity; What are the New World Order plans? Ultimately oneness; transformation; awakening; networking; the plan involves the destruction of all people who communal sharing; one-world/globalism/new world believe in the Bible, who worship Jesus Christ, and order (i.e., one language, one government, one the complete disappearance of Christianity and Islam to achieve this plan. currency, one religion); cosmic consciousness; etc. The New Age also encompasses a wide array of notions: spiritualism, astrology, bioenergy, Chi energy, chakras, nirvana, Christ-consciousness, Native American Spirituality, Prajna, out-of-body/ near-death experiences, reincarnation, and the occult disciplines, as well as unorthodox psychotherapeutic techniques and pseudoscientific applications of the "healing powers" of crystals and pyramids.
Both religions are monotheistic and monotheism holds no place under the umbrella of a new world order. Whilst there has been an ongoing underlining stealth strategy to remove the Christian faith from the educational system in the western world, the war against Islam has begun on a much more political level having been instigated by the September 11th attacks in New York and the Gulf War. Ultimately the New World Order conspirators are facilitating a coming war which will lead to the destruction of Islam as a political and economic threat and allow a globalist world government to arise with little international opposition. This is covered significantly in Albert Pike’s “Morals and It is important to recognize even the most disguised Dogma”. forms of the New Age Movement or areas where the New Age Movement concepts can become influential. Some New Age practices are: rebirthing; inner healing; biofeedback; yoga; I Ching; reflexology; black and white magic; fire-walking; trance-channeling; therapeutic touch; transpersonal psychology; witchcraft; parapsychology; Magick; Tai Chi; Shamanism; hypnotherapy; acupuncture/ acupressure; TM; martial arts; Zen; Relaxation; Erhard Seminar Training (est); Silva Method (formerly Silva Mind Control); visualization; etc. Many New Agers attach great importance to artifacts, relics, and sacred objects, all of which can be profitably offered for sale: Tibetan bells, exotic herbal teas, Viking runes, solar energizers, colored candles for "chromotherapy," and a plethora of
THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT Blackberry Under the Spotlight Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey were two of the most well known organizers of New Age Movement in the early part of the twentieth century. Blavatsky and Bailey were avid trance-channelers who claimed to receive messages from spirit entities and both recorded many predictions that were made to them regarding the inevitable appearance of "The Lord Maitreya" or "The Christ" on the earth immediately prior to earth's initiation into the utopian "New Age."
The literature of great thinkers whose have formed the basis of New Age philosophies have for the most part attributed their knowledge to dictation by the "ascended masters" who conveyed their chanellings to them. These include The Urantia Books, The Cosmic Gospel, The Secret Doctrine (actually a rewrite of the Book of Dzyan), The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, The Rays and the Initiations, to name only a few. Some of these ascended Masters include "El Morya" and "Master Kuthumi", both of them "5th degree initiates" who dictated Isis Unveiled to Helena Blavatsky as claimed in a "direct testimony" attributed to the spirit. There are other works for which spirits are directly named as the authors: examples are “The Mahatma Letters to AP Sinnett,” and “A Message to the Members of the Theosophical Society from an Elder Brother.” Perhaps the single most widely-read "ghost-writer" is the "The Tibetan Master", aka "Djwhal Khul" or just "DK", the source of all of Alice Bailey's books (except for From Bethlehem to Calvary, which he did not dictate but fully endorsed). Since these classic works were published, many more have been produced with credits given to spirit guides, through human authors like John Randolph Price (writing for "Asher"), Barbara Marx Hubbard (for "the elders"), David Spangler (for "John", "Pan" and simply "God") and Ruth Montgomery.
Because these women engaged in the biblicallyforbidden practice of spiritism and because the messages they received were deeply anti-Christian, mocking and ridiculing traditional Christianity, biblebelieving Christians have understood that the appearance of the man whom Bailey and Blavatsky predicted was not a reference to the second coming of Jesus Christ, but was in fact a prediction of the future Antichrist. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, who wrote “Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine” was the founder of the Theosophical Society in 1875. The spiritual premise of New Age Movement sometimes called the New World Order, are most clearly mapped out in Theosophy which remains a prime source for piecing together New Age foundations. Most if not all of New Age concepts predate Theosophy, as its founder freely admitted.
They borrowed heavily from classical Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism, with large doses of Gnosticism, astrology and other occultic power-quests. So despite the name "New" Age, we are surveying an ancient system of worship, found in various forms around the world (Babylonian, Egyptian, Norse, Atlantian, Pan/animist, American Indian, and other religions dependent on enpowerment from various spirit-guides). This is why New Age teaching is so There is one all-inclusive document that does not easily adapted to so many cultures. exist on the physical plane, which occultists say may be briefly glimpsed only at the 'highest level of According to Madame Blavatsky’s original consciousness': this is called the "Akashic Record", statements, this wisdom has been transmitted through the ages as a secret doctrine by a said to be an imprint of all past and future events. brotherhood of adepts or mahatmas (spirit guides)
THE NEW AGE��MOVEMENT Blackberry Under the Spotlight scattered through the world but in connection with one another. With a certain group of these in Tibet she claimed to be in communication. A Master Morya (spirit guide) is supposed to have taken on Madame Blavatsky as his personal pupil, or chela. In adepts such as Morya the spiritual nature is supposed to have been so developed that the body has become the ductile instrument of the intelligence. Theosophical language includes references to astral bodies, guardian angels, and such the like.
Alice A. Baily who wrote “The Race and the Initiation”, “The Externalization of the Hierarchy” and, “Initiation, Human and Solar The Reappearance of the Christ Bailey, was a previous president of the Theosophical Society and also founded the organization known as the Lucis Trust, which has counted as members men of great influence such as David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Paul Volker and George Schultz.

SANATA KUMARA, MAITREYA ET AL Blackberry Under the Spotlight
New Age history teaches that the “Masters” or “Hierarchy” appeared descended on earth 18 million years ago, during the Lemurian Age, introducing themselves in both physical and etheric bodies as "Brothers of Light". They made their home in "Shamballa" (when on the spiritual plane) and (on the physical plane) in the Gobi Desert, Shigatse and the Himalayas. They are most often referred to as the "Hierarchy of Ascended Masters", and sometimes as the "Space Brothers" or just the "Brotherhood" - a group of ancient beings, many of whom once started out on our (earthly human) plane, but have now evolved to the level where they are no longer shackled by physical matter and can be considered divine (to be addressed as "great Lord" or "Master"). This teaching shares a significant common strand with the belief of those like the late Zecariah Sitchin and Laurence Gardener who believe that the annunanki were a race of extra terrestrial beings who descended on Sumeria thousands of years ago to reengineer the human race by altering our genetic make up. They then ascended back to their dimension but are very much active in the destiny of the earth.
The flowchart for the Hierarchy is vast and very confusing, but to simplify the picture, Alice Bailey presents the Hierarchy in various geometric figures throughout her work Externalisation of the Hierarchy. Directly under "The One about whom nothing may be said", is a committee of 7 "Cosmic Logi", followed by 7 "Solar Logi", followed by 7 "Heavenly Men". There are also 7 "Rays" of pure energy emanations. The "Heavenly Man" in charge of earth's evolution is called "Sanat Kumara". Although he is presented as several levels down from the top, we have no way to make contact with this being's "colleagues" or "superiors"; Sanat Kumara is therefore considered the Head of the Hierarchy as far as earthlings are concerned.
SANATA KUMARA, MAITREYA ET AL Blackberry Under the Spotlight At the crucial times of new ages, such as the advent of a "subrace", a spirit known as "Maitreya" or "World Teacher" - the most "highly evolved being" known to man - descends from a hidden high place or "power vortex" (variously identified as the Himalayas or outer space) and "overshadows" a chosen spokesman, who then relays his "transmissions", which are instructions from the Hierarchy to guide the human race into the next cycle of "evolution". Five times previously at a key "transition time" (one for each subrace), Bailey relates (through Djwhal Kuhl) that Maitreya chose Buddha, Hermes, Zoraster, Orpheus, and Jesus as his vehicles. In the early 1900s, it was predicted by Theosophical Society leader Annie Besant that Maitreya would inhabit a physical body this century; a young Hindu named Jiddu Krishnamurti was chosen in the 1920s as the vehicle. Although the "overshadowing" was reported to have taken place for a few moments conveying a message from the "Brotherhood", it failed to become permanent. But the "descent" of Maitreya has been consistently expected by Theosophists and other New Agers since those days. More recently, Maitreya has chosen the british disciple of Bailey, Benjamin Creme, New Age teacher and the figurehead of World Goodwill and Share International, to occasionally channel his instructions - or so Creme has been claiming since 1981. Creme claims that he has been in constant telepathic contact with "Maitreya the Christ" since the early 70s and that Maitreya finally entered civilized society privately in 1977 when he materialized in human form and took up residence in a suburb of London.
Since then Creme has travelled the world, giving lectures and appearing on talk shows, to prepare the world for the public. “Many now expect the return of their awaited Teacher, whether they call him the Christ, Messiah, the fifth Buddha, Krishna, or the Imam Mahdi. Millions now know that the Teacher who fulfills all these expectations is already living among us.”
One major aspect of Creme's mission was the formation of Share International Foundation and the publication of it's monthly self-titled magazine. Each issue contains a brief synopsis of the emergence of Maitreya on the first two pages and then a brief message that has been trance-channeled through Benjamin Creme from an Ascended Master known simply as "The Master" on page three. The spiritual thrust of Share International is clearly obvious in each issue that is published.
Creme and Share International are both intimately connected with a number of New Age groups including the Freemasons (Creme often lectures in Masonic halls), the Tara Canter of Hollywood, CA, the Theosophical Society, the Lucis Trust (which maintains the official UN "meditation room"), and World Goodwill, an organization created by the Lucis Trust and also recognized by the UN as an official NGO. World Goodwill also actively promotes the appearance of "Maitreya the World Teacher" in their literature and on their website.
SANATA KUMARA, MAITREYA ET AL Blackberry Under the Spotlight New Age messages to the public encourage "faith in the loving Creator" or "thanksgiving to the Lord of Creation", phrased to allow everyone his own interpretation. For themselves, however, the Creator is the head of the Hierarchy, known as Sanat Kumara. He has other titles as well: "Ancient of Days", "Lord of the World", "Youth of Endless Summers" and "The One Initiator" (i.e. the one who initiates mankind to higher evolutionary levels). Bailey calls his "Council Chamber" by the term found in the Jewish book of Psalms, "the secret place of the Most High".
nat Kumara, Maitreya the Christ, and Lucifer are presented to the world as a trinity. Known as the Planetary Logos, they administer 3 spiritual Energies: respectively, [Sanat Kumara] Shamballa, the planetary Head, with the principles of Will-Power -Plan; [Maitreya] Hierarchy, the planetary Heart, Love-Wisdom-Unity; and [Lucifer] Humanity, the planetary Throat, Intelligence- Self-ConciousnessCreativity. Elsewhere Bailey calls them "The Departmental Heads... three great Beings", using Hindu terms and assigning to them 3 respective spheres of activity: "Manu" (Sanat Kumara - matter, form, body, notself; relating to governments and races), "Bodhisattva" (Maitreya - spirit, life, self; realized in religions and beliefs) and "Mahachohan" (Lucifer intelligence, mind, soul; expressed in science, civilization and education). Notice that matter is equated with "not-self"; this follows the ancient gnostic idea that the physical must be destroyed to bring forth the true "self". Bailey affirms that Sanat Kumara's job is indeed to destroy, using the Shamballa energy, to make room for the new. Lucis Trust, the organization dedicated to distributing Bailey's writings, considers the Shamballa force to be "a demonstration of the beneficent
Sanat Kumara is credited as the "founder and initiator of all the most important movements." Bailey claims that both Christians and Jews are actually worshiping him in their attempts to identify "God". This shows her ignorance of Judaism; even while calling him "the Most High", she place Sanat Kumara far below the Ultimate God on her charts, automatically eliminating from him the central attribute of the G-d of Israel. On the other hand, it shows her intent to deceive, since elsewhere she writes that her "Lord of the World" is "totally otherwise" compared to the Adon Olam of the Jews.
will of God", in that it "tends to destroy all forms that hinder the emergence of a new and better world the political field."
According to Bailey, Sanat Kumara is the only one known to man who attained the 7th initiation, placing him at the summit of the Logos pyramid as the one who "alone is self-sufficient". Bailey characterizes him as the incarnation of "one of the 7 spirits before the Throne - the greatest of all Avatars". She also borrows liberally from Christian imagery, even quoting New Testament passages to describe him.
Although Sanat Kumara level of enlightenment earned him the right to enter into "Nirvana", he instead made the "supreme sacrifice" of turning back to creation and taking the responsibility to create us into gods. Bailey relates that he "came down" to earth in the middle of the Lemurian age, taking physical form, and although he later returned to the spirit plane, he "has remained with us ever since." As we saw above, Bailey disciple Benjamin Creme makes identical claims for Lucifer, but this is not accidental, as we will see.
In this passage, she even goes so far as to say that Sanat is "literally the Planetary Logos Himself", and describes the Logos as taking "the form of Sanat Kumara", the other two being "the outcome of the triple nature of the Planeta ry Logos."

These call into question whether Maitreya and Since 1997, Creme has further revised his Lucifer have a separate identity at all, or are to be presentation of Maitreya on his websites. Whereas Maitreya was always the name of the spirit speaking considered emanations of Sanat Kumara. through Creme, whom no one was allowed to see For the sake of comparison when Bailey charts the "until he chooses to reveal himself", now a "three great planetary centers" she lists photograph of "Maitreya" is displayed, while the "Humanity" (Lucifer's domain) as the first "master" now speaking through Creme "has a name "expression of divine livingness", having been known only to an inner circle" and goes by "Master" manifested "in the first solar system"; or the "Avatar [manifestation] of Synthesis". chronologically this makes Lucifer the senior partner Until recently Maitreya was the highest initiate (7th in the Logos. degree) in the cosmos; Creme now claims that Then "Hierarchy" (Maitreya's responsibility) Master is so much higher that his level cannot be appeared "in the second solar system" (our present revealed; "we wouldn't comprehend it." Creme still era) but is yet to "come into full manifestation upon speaks of Maitreya, but his relationship to "Master" the physical plane". "Shamballa" (Sanat's rule and is unclear. Blavatsky is more direct in identifying "the directing center for the Hierarchy") is not due to the head of the Logos: for her it is "Satan". He is manifest until "the next solar system"; however, for "one with the Logos" which is ultimately one force. reasons unexplained, it is only now that the three He also bears the title "Kumara" and is the oldest "meet simultaneously at various stages of and highest of the angelic gods. livingness." Even more curious, "it is only through human beings that these centers can ever come into true functioning activity." From this it may be concluded that puny, unascended man is actually in control of the mighty Logos, who is/are dependent on his invitation and involvement in order to truly function. However, according to Benjamin Creme, it is Maitreya who is the only being to have evolved to a 7th degree initiation, as opposed to Buddha (6th) or Jesus (4th/5th). The lines between Maitreya, Sanat and Lucifer are even more blurred in the teachings of Creme, who has urged people to address the New Age messiah as either Maitreya or Sanat Kumara.
