The New Age is none other than a form of traditional Paganism, mostly because it resorts to the Soverign Deity Gaia and the Raelians (Gods).  The scripture is the Gaidheal (Tao Te Ching) and the constitution is the Magna Carta.  If you feel this is offensive, feel free to discuss your opinion and speak to Beliefnet about this.  If you feel I am violating the Community Guidelines (or the law), contact the proper authorities immediately.  I mean no harm but I am trying to organize the worlds religions by doing research on the new age movement.  Of course  there is no such thing as a new age religion because the New Age is a religion.  Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a free lunch either.  Nothing in life is free.  You pay what you work for.  If you do not work, you do not get paid.  Please consider this in mind before you lose your tempers.  Thank you, and may you be blessed.

lol, no worries.  I think I can undertand you.  For me anyways and maybe you can relate, when you walk a pathless path, you're free from the rigid rules and set beliefs of any particular tradition.  So your views and beliefs, will continuously be ever evolving.  With change and growth, sometimes naturally come challenges and even chaos (e.g. being or feeling "out of your mind"), but ultimately and fortunately, this oftentimes lead to a better you, on multiple levels (mentally, physically, spritually, etc).

As far as we know, Paganism does not exist as a religion.  If it did, there will be an entry in most encyclopedias.  Please be careful with the subject.  Thank you.

Paganism was founded in 1923 Ireland by Catholic schoolgirl into whom wrote her spiritual fantasies in her school journal and soon the faith spread like wildfire to where the Pope gave her his blessings.  She then established the Pagan calender, the festival of Yule, the Sabbats and the Council of Man, into whom chose the founder as the Guardian of the faith.  She named herself Ravenheart, into whom was succeed by Starhawk.

I believe in Gaia as the embodiment of Ultimate Reality.  There are two streams of Paganism, that being Orthodox and Eclectic.  The former is direct to the Nexus (Tao Te Ching) while the latter draws inspiration from a variety of sources in lieu with the Nexus.  Now it is the rightfully largest religion on Earth followed by Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Shinto, Jainism, Sikhism, Judaism and Baha'i.  The religion is now 90 years old and reaching its centennial.

Pagans do believe in the Othererworld, but what happens there we do not know.  Pagans do not have sex, eat lamb or drink wine because they are sacred.  Worldly pleasures are condemned by the Nexus as a waste of time, money or health.  This includes beer and liquor, tobacco, gambling and porn.
