How happy I am to be completely out of the new-age, new-thought, human-potential, pop-psychology, self-hel0/improvement, personal/spiritual growth/development movements now and see them all for what they are! How glad I am to recognize the various psychological methods/techniques for what they are also.
Someone asked what other year new-agers will use after 2012 is over. Here is an article I believed when I was involved in the movement, and it is a very subtle "be afraid, be very afraid" message but of course the author puts a positive spin on it by telling everyone to be optimistic and take fear-mongering with a grain of salt while simultaneously reminding people of the consequences if earth doesn't awaken. Reminds me of the JWs. It's still fear no matter how you slice it. Psychological double-talk.
Here's the article. When nothing happens in 2012, the other planned dates for this author are 2017 and 2030, along with another survival book.
