Delusions of Grandeur.

The psychiatric condition is defined as a "delusional conviction of one's own importance, power, or knowledge or that one is, or has a special relationship with, a deity or a famous person." I am not a mental health expert, but I would add one other element to the definition: a condition common among New Agers.

New Agers believe that Man is a potential god, and that once we learn the "secret wisdom" of the universe this inner deity will become manifest. In the eyes of New Agers, Jesus was not "The" Christ, but only "a" Christ. He was not special. He simply achieved the level of Christ-consciousness that all enlightened people can reach by tapping into the Creative Energy floating through the universe. Just as you tune-in to the proper wavelength to listen to a radio station, so you would do the same with the universe's energy. Successfully tuning-in to this energy will release powers that can make Man the equal of any deity.

Why am I writing this?

According to AOL News, on April 5 New Age superhero Deepak Chopra allegedly "tweeted" his followers that he "had a powerful meditation just now -- caused an earthquake in Southern California." That's right. It was not a shift in the tectonic plates that cause the 7.2 earthquake along the California-Mexico border. It was Chopra's "meditating on Shiva mantra" that caused the earth to rattle. But lest anyone believe Chopra is insensitive, he immediately apologized for the global upheaval.

Delusions of Grandeur.

My first reaction is to laugh at New Agers like Chopra, but then I remind myself that they actually believe this "Unleash Your Inner God " nonsense. No wonder the world is in the shape that it is in. I look around and see a fallen world filled with fallen creatures longing for God and Eternal Peace. New Agers see a world that longs for them and their enlightened wisdom. They see a world waiting to be perfected by spiritual elites such as themselves.

God help us.

Oh, I do have one question for Chopra. If he is powerful enough to cause an earthquake, why isn't he powerful enough to prevent one? Or has he already taken credit for that?

Need a PR Specialist? Perhaps my 13 years of PR experience can satisfy those needs. I have publicized world champions such as Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield, and mega-events like Lewis-Tyson and De la Hoya-Vargas.
