Another reason “New Age” is so yesterday

I am posting the next blog in it’s entirety with permission. Please visit the author’s site for to read more on his topic. I agree with 99% . My only disagreement is about people who are struggling for survival. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs tells us that we do not look to self-actualization until our tummies are filled and we have solid roofs over our heads. I agree with that observation.
 
What the author is saying is something that translates to this site and to activism. As one who haunted many a bookstore, there comes a time when we have improved ourselves to a point and must externalize the knowledge converting it into experience. I think it’s important to look for ways we may be of service to others in our new found states of being. Also, I don’t fault any organization for trying to raise capital but there always seems to be a high price placed on this path to enlightenment and to be privy to their “secrets”.

An interpretation of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid with the more basic needs at the bottom.[1]

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology, proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation.[2] Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans’ innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, all of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans.
