10 TRENDS OF THE 21ST CENTURY: THE NEW MILLENNIUM RELIGION
"A new major religion, on a scale to rival any of the great world religions from Islam to Christianity, is beginning to take shape even before the new millennium turns. Like those religions before it, the yet unnamed new millennium religion will configure the minds of individuals, form new institutions, and help direct the course of history. The signs of the new religion can be seen in society's quest for what is now being loosely called 'spirituality.'"

"Coiled like a snake at the base of the spine, kundalini is the spiritual force that lies dormant in every human being. Once awakened, often through meditation and yoga practices, it rises up the spine and finds expression in the form of spiritual knowledge, mystical vision, psychic powers, and ultimately, enlightenment."
"He explained that the ecstatic trance could be of two kinds, one visionary, the other without form. The reason he refrained from describing his visions—except for what he had written here, and in The Riddle of Consciousness—was that they would seem too fantastic to believe. So the book that he had in mind to write just before he passed away might have turned out to be sensational.
Perhaps he felt that it was time for such a book. He had always maintained that his mission was to convince scientists to investigate Kundalini. Writing about his visionary experiences might have lessened his credibility. There would be plenty of fantastic discoveries in the mind and consciousness—and in physiology, also—once empirical research was seriously under way."

"Almost all the publications on Nostradamus' work which have appeared this century focus exclusively on the negative aspects of his predictions, making him, in the popular mind, a prophet solely of destruction and disaster, plague and nuclear war.
But are we inevitably doomed to a future world of natural and ecological disaster, plague and nuclear war? Is our future destiny, as foreseen by Nostradamus, immutable, or will we be given an opportunity to improve our chances of survival?
Throughout the prophet's visions of apocalypse the theme of a new religious consciousness occurs again and again. It will flourish, he says, before the end of the 20th century ...
In their present state the established religions show little signs of an ability to bring peace on earth. On the contrary, most of the wars of history have been fought over differences of faith and different definitions of the nature of 'truth.' By clearing predicting the flowering of a new religion, Nostradamus discounts all the familiar established faiths. What is the nature of this new religion? Is it already developing, or yet to be born?"
