New Age: Living with Integrity
There is much misunderstanding about the term “new age,” whether referring to religion, lifestyle or a music genre. You don’t necessarily have to engage in typical “new age practices” like yoga, acupuncture or alternative medicine to embrace a lifestyle that may be considered new age. Living with integrity is perhaps the easiest way to tap into inner peace, which truly is the foundation of the movement.
What is integrity? In its simplest form, integrity is when your actions match your core beliefs. For example, if you are concerned about global climate change, you reduce your consumption and recycle as much as possible, while minimizing your energy usage. Or, if you think gossiping is a malicious habit, you do not engage when presented with the opportunity. In order to help you live with greater integrity, write down a list of the things that matter the most to you, particularly focusing on character traits. Are you living in a way that is consistent with that which you admire?
You can achieve inner peace by living with integrity. If you have also been wondering, “what is new age,” then you can get a meaningful glimpse by focusing on integrity. New age practices require no more than that simple approach.
Wikipedia has this to say about living with integrity:
The etymology of the word “integrity” stems from the Latin adjective integer (whole, complete). In this context, integrity may comprise the personal inner sense of “wholeness” deriving from (say) honesty and consistency of character. As such, one can judge that others “have integrity” to the extent that one judges whether they behave according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.
Sounds a bit deep, but really, its not too difficult. When you consider ‘integrity” in light of the popular Wikipedia definition of new age, it all starts to piece together:
The New Age (also known as the New Age Movement, New Age spirituality, and Cosmic Humanism) is a decentralized Western social and spiritual movement that seeks “Universal Truth” and the attainment of the highest individual human potential. It combines aspects of cosmology, astrology, esotericism, alternative medicine, music, collectivism, sustainability, and nature. New Age spirituality is characterized by an individual approach to spiritual practices and philosophies, while rejecting religious doctrine and dogma.
In short, both integrity and new age practices help you find the “real you.” That is, the person that you are, and are meant to be. New age music comes into the mix as a contemplative method through which listeners can simply be – and discover their true happiness by embracing their reality, without judgment.
New age practices are not required for you to achieve inner peace. However, living with integrity is a necessary element.
