The newage movement is like a religion reformed. People turned away from religion, choose one direction, be that card-reading, angels or past lives and then stick to it. It is nothing else than a religion in which you have a certain philosophy and won’t move away from it in your thinking.
If you see a friend being pulled into a sect or a group that has bad practices, tell him what you think about it but in the end you have to let him believe what he wants to believe.
Come out of your system, sect or religion to see what is wrong with it.
Sects go to extremes - Either lots of sex or no sex at all!
Do not steal the childhood of your children by raising them in a sect.
