Within New Thought it is taught that when an adherent is overwhelmed by information, it is best to "cocoon" or "turtle."
Turtling is a tactic that helps people who lack the fortitude and/or the emotional / spiritual tools to navigate the ocean of information or 'news' to simply avoid all news and live in a bubble of their own creation. It can be observed that the 6 corporate news streams do not provide accurate news because most corporate news is non-informative 'infotainment' designed to glean as much profit from peoples natural curiosity as possible.
During the latter half of the 20th Century, Journalism, the 'fourth estate' mentioned in the U.S. Constitution has been increasingly neutralized through the transformation of news into 'infotainment.' Dismayed professional journalists everywhere have observed this appalling transformation. While professional journalists are working to safeguard their profession, generally they have not been supported by the institutions that profit from their work. Netizens can observe commercial advertising in print media, on websites and TV. Yet the publishers claim that the advertising they are selling is not generating enough income to support salaries for professional journalists. This would put those publications into the same boat as this library and the NewThought.net/work
During the entire history of this endeavor, the voluntary contributions that support this work have simply enabled us to pay for servers, obtain licenses for projects that support other New Thought endeavors and 'make ends meet.' We have never been able to pay a salary to anyone.
While some people might maintain that this is a terrible situation, the purpose of a ministry is to empower adherents and share a spiritual path. If, one day, enough believers contribute to this ministry such that we can pay for all the expense and in addition to that pay a salary, and by paying that salary we can advance the purpose and intention of this ministry, we will certainly consider such a change. At this point, this is not possible and not policy.
Over the years, we have been blessed by amazing and wonderful souls who have helped grow this ministry. While this ministry began in the 1980's and was formalized in the 1990's, it received additional attention at the beginning of the New Millennium because one of the founders was in a dreadful auto accident that precluded regular work. In 2011, two of the founders were in an auto accident that brought additional challenges to our work. One of those founders died in 2012, almost exactly a year to the date of the accident. Another founder, who was a passenger in that accident now has additional challenges that have thus slowed down his contributions to this resource.
The ensuing years have clearly demonstrated that additional changes must be implemented to safeguard the mission of this ministry. We are working with a number of pod leaders to ensure upgrades and expansion continues. New Thought leaders in various areas of New Thought are invited to become sponsors and participate in rejuvenating our wonderful movement.Before going to the links, we invite you to read this article.
While at times it is wise for a spiritual leader to remove himself or herself from companionship in order to do deep focused meditation on a particular issue, spiritual leadership is not about the blind leading the blind. Life is more comfortable when one never reads watches the news, local or otherwise, but Leadership is a path of responsibility which surpercedes comfort. The spiritual leader is tasked with the well being of the spiritual community. Spiritual Leaders must be professionals whose conduct aligns with this goal.
Spiritual Leaders should be fully informed about what is going on within their spiritual communities and what is going within the greater community in wihch they live. This includes both the local area, but also the way that state or regional law affects congregants. It would be odd if a New Thought Spiritual Leader was unaware of national law and codes and how they affect the spiritual community.
Spiritual Leaders are expected to have developed a Spiritual Practice which enables the walking of the High Mystic Path. The high path is a path of awareness and concentration. The manager must run his team. The administrator must ensure the smooth running of a system which normally includes many teams. A good manager is informed about the team and apprised of what is going on that could affect the team. The administrator must have a much greater overview of a system with higher levels of information to achieve higher efficiency. When participating in any organization there are different levels of information necessary to the most efficient performance of that role. In all positions and leadership roles the New Thought leader is expected to be a life long learner informed of anything which could affect his or her community. Walking the path of Spiritual Leadership is not for those who are afraid of life.
The Spiritual Leader must always remember that while he or she is a lighthouse guiding the community, he or she is not a source of gossip. Information flowing to a spiritual leader must be handled with confidentiality and consequent protective conduct. If someone tells your their cat died, do not be the town crier and repeat that information. Let the person sharing such information choose with whom he or she feels such a confidence should be shared. You were chosen as one of those. There was once a minister who desired to help a practitioner who wanted to be a minister. Confidentiality was necessary to help the applicant achieve this goal. The administrator of the program did not understand the importance of confidentiality. Sadly once the seal was broken, the applicant dropped out of the program.
People are sensitive soulful beings. By being conscious of this we can provide better guidance and support. People come to Spiritual leaders for nurture more than insight. The activity of the Spiritual leader is to be a crucible for the transformation of others. The leader is the facilitator of change through the alchemical processes of New Thought Spiritual practices.
Be aware that while you might look to your mentor for guidance about issues in your life, the person coming to you for support does not know your mentor. While you may feel delighted to share the intimate details of your life with your mentor, blissfully unaware that she is sharing your details with a "consciousness committee," your clients are sharing details with you on the premise that those details do not get shared by you with another party. That is the meaning of confidentiality. Once you violate the seal even with an "upline" minister within an organization in which you belong, you have violated the confidence. Do not do this.
We all know about the minister who shared up but not down, thinking that this was ok. If a practioner, minister, or spiritual teacher acting in the capacity of spiritual counselor passes confidential information to someone else, even within a 'parent organization,' that person is not to be trusted as he or she has violated the seal. This includes sending confidential information in unencrypted messages or emails to clients, colleagues and others. There is no 'special exception' clause. Sometimes emotionally immature individuals think their mentor falls within a special category of people with whom 'it's ok to share.' THERE IS NO SUCH CATEGORY or clause. There are no exceptions. In fact, such lack of integrity is a signal that the organization might be using 'cult principles.' Indviduals who send pictures and information with the goal of manipulating, shaming, blackmailing or otherwise bullying someone are not really spiritually evolved and are usually violating the law. Such people might think they are being cute or clever, but the law is not on their side. If you know of someone who does this, report their behavior to your local police and the Secret Service.
When a client comes to a Spiritual Leader for Spiritual counseling, guidance, nurture, the client has an 'expectation of privacy.' The spiritual leader is now tasked with the responsibility to guard that privacy. People who cannot do this, are unable to assume the responsibilities of being a spiritual leader. Be responsible to safeguard your information from other ministers as well. People need confidentiality to grow spiritually.
Some people have grown up in, or experienced organizations which are characterized by pyramid structures founded on principles of dominance / submission. It can be challenging for people who have been subjected to such systems to make the leap to personal responsibility. In New Thought we also see people who devolve into a total lack of awareness of social responsibility. New Thought does have 'fundamentalists.' Their behavior is to blame the victim. Such individuals will ask someone who has been sexually assaulted: 'what have you done to bring this into your consciousness.' They will also do this to people who have lost their homes due to economic chaos.
In contrast to 'Turtling,' there is the High Metaphysical Path which involves courage and mind training. This is what is meant by Christ Mind and Buddha Mind.
The High Metaphysical Path is described in most, if not all spiritual teachings (dharmas). Within the Abrahamic teachings this path is described by Psalm 23:
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
~ King James Version (KJV)
The New International Translation is a bit more accurate:
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
~ New International Version (NIV)
What is the hidden metaphysical meaning within this text?
This text teaches the Conscious Minister and Spiritual Leader and anyone else choosing the high metaphysical path that our understanding of our DivineUnity supports us in all our endeavors and we need not fear the challenges within the world. Throughout history, different Spiritual Leaders have led their congregations out of danger in times of crisis.
Before the Turkish government began the systematic genocide of their Christian citizens, there had been hundreds of pograms conducted with the support of Turkish officials against Christians and others throughout the Ottoman Empire going back 50 years. Some Christian Ministers of the Armenian Church intuited the coming murders which came during World War 1 when the Turkish government used various pretexts to rationalize the Genocide of their Christian Citizens (Armenians).
Rabbi's in Ukraine and Poland intuited the dangers of the coming Holocaust and asked their congregations to sell everything in order to buy tickets to the United States. Those communities which emigrated to the United States were not murdered by the Nazi's, who patterned their genocide of the Jews, Gypsies, Handicapped and Democrats after the Turkish murder of the Armenian people.
In the United States, ministers have intuited dangers at various times, when allowable moved further west to avoid violence generally motivated by hatred of a groups ideas, and sometimes . Hatred motivated by fear of the ideas of other groups is an international phenomena from which the United States has not been immune. In the United States hatred generally flows from Right to Left. American history is replete with incidences of working men and women being murdered by corporations with little or no interference from elected officials and at times with the complicity of officials charged with protecting the peace.
Prior to Civil Rights Legislation passed in the 1960's, it was quite common for people of color to be deprived of Human Rights throughout the United States with the most egregious violations occurring in the South. At times ministers and rabbis moved their congregations west to reduce the likelihood of being victims of violence. When political leaders inflame audiences against people holding views that differ from their own, this anger and hatred can be directed against other groups as well.
New Thought adherents hold views about Christ which differ from the majority of today's Christians. While some may argue that New Thought views of Christ as a 'Wayshower' and 'example' are more accurate than the views of most of today's Christians, such explanations generally fall on deaf ears when mobs are intent on violence. To an average Christian, New Thought views of Christ sound like 'heresy" and seem similar to the Mohammedan view of Christ.
It behooves New Thought ministers to stay apprised of what is going on within their communities, their states, and nations in order to insure that their congregations are not living in a 'reality bubble.'
Spiritual Leaders must remain: "As wise as an eagle and as loving as a dove." Thereby, while some congregants may be cocooning, or turtling, the spiritual leaders is aware and can acts as the eyes and ears of the ignorant.
Recent attacks on the lodges of Free Masons in parts of the United States demonstrate that those responsible are either ignorant of the history of the United States which was essentially founded by Free Masons, or they hate the ideas which have made America great which are the Human Rights within the Bill of Rights.
Wisdom is not often found in ignorance.

The dawn of the New Millennium brought an unprecedented concentration of traditional news media under 6 corporations. It has become increasingly important for citizens desiring balanced Civil Societies to seek out news on the internet. With the rise of Social Media people are increasingly living in "bubbles of individual realities." Social marketing pushes products, points of views, and preferences that participants have already expressed. Here are some links to support your spiritual path through being better informed. Always participate and observe how other souls are participating and how easy it is for them to participate. Freedom is not free, it demands your time and energy. Vote and help others to vote!
Be aware, because awareness precedes consciousness.
What does the word "corporation" really mean?
corpor = body
a = without
ratio = soul, reason
The simple breakdown above helps us understand the real meaning of the word. Can we expect a stack of papers to have a soul? The people working for corportions are certainly people, but the vehicle for their organization is not. Across the world we see a steady push toward a new system in which corporations have more rights and thus more power than people. The very basis of Civil Society is being undermined as elected government is increasingly being replaced by unelected boardrooms often in distant lands with little motivation to uphold the interests of regular citizens.
