Self Worship of the New Age

August 24, 2009

(the idea that we are our own god is)

The giant truth that one individual is his or her own best teacher, and that no other idol or false image should be worshipped or adored because the God we are all seeking lies inside one’s self, not outside.

Shirley MacLaine, IT’S ALL IN THE PLAYING, Bantam, NY, 1987, p.172.

In the miniseries Out on a Limb MacLaine portrayed herself on a beach
screaming “I am God!” over and over.

If she is God then she is accountable to no one but herself. If so, there is no accountability but the likelihood of eternal self-justifications for any and all of our actions.
