The people who are redefining success are a new breed of motivational gurus who act as catalysts to people’s own emerging desire for permanent values.
Now, spirituality has become the new motivation and this is what our Motivational magazine is all about. Now celebrities consult personal gurus, mainline hospitals offer alternative therapies, corporate houses host personal growth workshops, meditative music tapes sell in thousands, it’s clear that we are well on its way to occupying center stage in India. Spirituality is upfront. What used to be a private aspect of life, is spilling over into the public domain and lunchtime conversations. Daily newspapers prominently carry interviews with saints and motivational speakers, and have columns promoting a meditative way of life.
Now society is undergoing a seminal change and a paradigm shift is happening.
Spirituality is becoming more popular. People are looking for moorings, for more universal truths. They want meaning in their lives.’
Today, most subjects are becoming multidisciplinary, such as biochemistry or geopolitics. And whether in religion or in health, people are taking matters into their own hands. They come together in small prayer units, or try alternative medicine. They are taking back their power.
On the other hand, there is a reverse movement towards consumerism. Today, the young believe that it’s okay to make money anyway. Greed is unmasked and naked.
Different voices, different views. But nothing that runs counter to the New Age vision. It’s the term given to the broad vision espoused by a large group of thinkers, artists, scientists and visionaries from the West, that the time has come for humanity to move into a more spiritual culture. We are evolving from a species that pursues external power into a species that pursues authentic power.
We are intimately connected with the universe and with each other, and our influence on our world with our thoughts is more powerful than anyone ever dreamed. This gave rise to the human potential movement, which postulated that man’s purpose for existence was growth and enlightenment.
