New Age

The New Age movement is a Western spiritual movement that developed in the second half of the 20th century. Its central precepts have been described as "drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual and metaphysical traditions and infusing them with influences from self-help and motivational psychology, holistic health, parapsychology, consciousness research and quantum physics".[2] The term New Age refers to the coming astrological Age of Aquarius.[1] The movement aims to create "a spirituality without borders or confining dogmas" that is inclusive and pluralistic.[3] It holds to "a holistic worldview",[4] emphasising that the Mind, Body, and Spirit are interrelated[1] and that there is a form of monism and unity throughout the universe.[5] It attempts to create "a worldview that includes both science and spirituality"[6] and embraces a number of forms of mainstream science as well as other forms of science that are considered fringe.

Deepak Chopra Deepak Chopra (/ˈdiːpɑːk ˈtʃoʊprə/ Hindustani: [d̪iːpək tʃoːpraː]; born October 22, 1947) is an Indian American author, public speaker, alternative medicine advocate, and a prominent figure in the New Age movement.[4][5][6] Through his books and videos, he has become one of the best-known and wealthiest figures in alternative medicine.[7] Chopra studied medicine in India before emigrating to the United States in 1970 where he completed residencies in internal medicine and endocrinology. A licensed physician, in 1980 he became chief of staff at the New England Memorial Hospital (NEMH).[8] He met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1985 and became involved with the Transcendental Meditation movement (TM).

Religion and happiness Religion and happiness have been studied by a number of researchers, and religion features many elements addressing the components of happiness, as identified by positive psychology. Its association with happiness is facillitated in part by the social connections of organized religion,[1] and by the neuropsychological benefits of prayer[2] and belief. Research[edit] There are a number of mechanisms through which religion may make a person happier, including social contact and support that result from religious pursuits, the mental activity that comes with optimism and volunteering, learned coping strategies that enhance one's ability to deal with stress, and psychological factors such as "reason for being." It may also be that religious people engage in behaviors related to good health, such as less substance abuse, since the use of psychotropic substances is sometimes considered abuse.[3][4][5][6][7][8] Methodological considerations[edit]

Jehovah's Witnesses The group emerged from the Bible Student movement—founded in the late 1870s by Charles Taze Russell with the formation of Zion's Watch Tower Tract Society—with significant organizational and doctrinal changes under the leadership of Joseph Franklin Rutherford.[16][17] The name Jehovah's witnesses, based on Isaiah 43:10–12,[18] was adopted in 1931 to distinguish themselves from other Bible Student groups and symbolize a break with the legacy of Russell's traditions. The religion's position regarding conscientious objection to military service and refusal to salute national flags has brought it into conflict with some governments. Consequently, some Jehovah's Witnesses have been persecuted and their activities are banned or restricted in some countries.

Fellowship Overview Author: European Antichrist looking more and more unlikely Text smaller Text bigger With Europe on the verge of economic collapse, what about all those popular predictions that the European Union would become the world’s political powerhouse, giving rise to the endtimes prophecies of a world dictator known to Bible students as the Antichrist? Joel Richardson, author of a best-selling book on Bible prophecy, says atheists will have a field day mocking Christians for the incorrect interpretations about the last days. “Nearly twenty years ago, I intently watched as a very popular Christian television prophecy teacher declared, ‘the present formation of the European Union is literally the fulfillment of Bible prophecy right before our eyes!’”

Kanye West Meets Jewish Power by Tingba Muhammad, and the NOI Research Group [View the weekly broadcast of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, THE TIME AND WHAT MUST BE DONE, every Saturday at 6 PM CT: Black entertainer Kanye West has now joined the elite ranks of some of our most powerful and prestigious Black freedom fighters, such as Martin Luther King, Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Malcolm X, Bishop Desmond Tutu, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, and even our late great freedom fighter Nelson Mandela. For they—like Kanye—were all labeled “anti-Semites” by the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. Not that they are, or ever were, “anti-Semites,” but they all have advocated setting Blacks on an economic course for their survival and advancement, a route to true power that is exactly the opposite of the dead-end path Jewish financiers of negro leadership have demanded that we go down—and this deeply troubles Jewish watchdogs like Abraham Foxman and all the other “liberal” Jewish groups. That’s power.

Self-fulfillment Self-fulfillment is a concept used in philosophy and, to a lesser degree, psychology, referring to the realizing of one's deepest desires and capacities. The history of this concept can be traced to Ancient Greek philosophers, and although it has been criticized since, it still remains a notable concept in modern philosophy. Definition and history[edit] Gewirth noted that the term self-fulfillment has two near synonyms: self-realization and self-actualization, used respectively by philosophers and humanist psychologists, whereas the term self-fulfillment is more commonly used outside those expert fields.[3] Gewirth however argues that this concept is sufficiently different from those others to merit not being used as a synonym.[3] Self-actualization in particular, often discussed in the context of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, is frequently defined as the "need for self-fulfillment".[4][5] Self-fulfillment has been positively connected to altruism.[2]

Rastafari movement The Rastafari movement is an Abrahamic religion which developed in Jamaica in the 1930s, following the coronation of Haile Selassie I as King of Ethiopia in 1930. Its adherents worship Haile Selassie I, emperor of Ethiopia (ruled 1930–1974), some as Jesus in his Second Advent, or as God the Father.[1] Members of the Rastafari way of life are known as Rastas, or the Rastafari. The way of life is sometimes referred to as "Rastafarianism", but this term is considered offensive by most Rastafari, who, being critical of "isms" (which they see as a typical part of "Babylon culture"), dislike being labelled as an "ism" themselves.[2] The name Rastafari is taken from Ras Tafari, the title (Ras) and first name (Tafari Makonnen) of Haile Selassie I before his coronation. In Amharic, Ras, literally "head", is an Ethiopian title equivalent to prince or chief, while the personal given name Täfäri (teferi) means one who is respected or feared.

Geeo What mind set should I have if I am going to India and Nepal? Of all of GEEO's programs this is probably the one that causes the most culture shock. India and Nepal, are thick with history, wonders, smells, colors, dirt and bureaucracy the likes of which even experienced travelers have never encountered. It is amazing and at the same time overwhelming. Pedigree of the Coming World Leader? The Genealogy of the Antich Waiting in the wings of the forthcoming global turmoil is the Man with a Plan--the one whom the world will welcome to resolve its many problems. The Bible gives us many provocative clues to his identity1, and from many prophetic glimpses his genealogical line may prove to be traceable. Daniel Chapters 7, 8 and 11 describe the career of Alexander the Great and his successors so vividly they constitute some of the most remarkable prophecies in the Bible. We also find that Alexander's four generals--Lysimachus, Cassander,Ptolemy, and Seleucus--divide the empire after his death just as the passages indicated.2 As Israel is sandwiched by the subsequent tensions between Ptolemy (Egypt) to the south and Seleucus (Syria) to the north, it is also amazing to note the precision with which Daniel records their respective successors in Chapter 11.3

Good Fight Ministries - Eminem Eminem Watch the video expose on Eminem! Eminem is the most successful artist of the 21st century. His Marshall Mathers LP sold an incredible 1.76 million copies in its first week, which is the highest first-week sale for a solo artist in history. While there are hundreds of runner-ups, Eminem is leading the way as the poster boy of moral depravity in the music industry today. In tragic hypocrisy, the mainstream media claimed to lament the loss of lives as a result of the Columbine massacre, and in the next breath praised the creativity of corrupters of youth like Eminem. Happiness Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.[1] A variety of biological, psychological, religious, and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources. Various research groups, including positive psychology, are employing the scientific method to research questions about what "happiness" is, and how it might be attained. The United Nations declared 20 March the International Day of Happiness to recognise the relevance of happiness and wellbeing as universal goals.
