New Age Spirituality Meets Black Lives Matter (How to Love the Human Race Without Sounding Like an Asshole)

Speaking your New Age spiritual beliefs in response to those who speak out against injustice isn't loving, kind, or helpful. Here's why and what might help.



When I first discovered spirituality, I thought I had found the answer to waging peace in the world. The idea that, at some level, we are all one, all united, all interconnected—this, to me, seemed like the idea that would bring world peace.

We consume for comfort. We rely on certainty to shield us from the pain of confusion. The truth is staggering, colossal, unfathomable, so we cling to our bite-sized lies. We organize knowledge into bulleted lists and line graphs while the wisdom of the present moment sits patiently at the doors of our perception.”
