As events around the world are lining up in an almost prophetic pattern, there is heightened concern throughout the religious communities that New Age and New Thought spirituality has become a faith of the “enemy.”
But how can people, who are uniting worldwide to exemplify messages of inner peace, truth, trust and love, be deemed an “enemy” – to anyone or anything?
“Once it is accepted that heaven’s love and grace has come to earth and is available to anyone who reaches out to receive it, the nuances of various religions begin to blend, which could be seen as threatening because that means that Connect is in motion,” commented Clif Taylor, author of Connect [Connected Spirit Publications in collaboration with Gold Leaf Press; November 2006].
Connect is an action, as well as the title of Taylor’s book. When speaking of “Connect being in motion”, Taylor is referring to humanity’s formation of a coalition of individuals whose lives are grounded in virtue - naturally, effortlessly and globally.
It is not difficult to see how the notion of “heaven on earth” is a perceived threat to organized religion. However, Connect, which essentially is the transcript of the author’s experiences “Connecting” with Heaven and Heaven’s “spokespeople" such as Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and Mary, does not claim to be a New Thought bible or any other type of “sacred” spiritual doctrine. The book, the author and the movement, are simply presenting the entry point to a life secured in faith, belief, trust and love.
“How can anyone, or any religion, consider this outcome an objective of the enemy?” Taylor asks.
Taylor, who has recently launched his regional book-signing and discussion campaign, has noticed that those whose faith is literally based, have a difficult time reconciling the notion of heaven being a place that comes to us from within, as opposed to a destination we travel to upon our death. It is his intention to dissolve the initial resistance by gently encouraging the objectors to read a few passages of the book, consider the possibility, then ask heaven a question and patiently wait to hear the answer.
“An answer will be provided,”“ Taylor promises. “One only has to quietly, patiently be available to receive it”
