Spiritual materialism and New Age belief

  
Spirituality, as expressed in New Age beliefs is a path away from enlightenment.

Belief in Indigo’s or Star Seeds merely serve the ego. An active fantasy life steeped in new age narratives feeds the ego with loftiness and importance which is the opposite to realising the Self.

All rivers eventually lead to the sea, but discernment is needed because some rivers which appear promising, first loop away far from the ocean.

Spiritual materialism is cultivating  an image of being spiritual, while buying into beliefs that serve the ego. 

Characteristic of such a path are positive aspects such as care for the environment, coupled with negative aspects such as repeating conspiracy theories, or health disinformation without due investigation, and so perpetuating untruths.

Soft thinking is not being “open” or “spiritual”. It is merely lazy thinking.
