"We still have the philosophy today in New Age teachings that the human race is evolving into higher and higher cosmic spirituality of compassion, love, sharing and caring.

Selfishness has to be exercised out of them."
Was that exercised or *exorcised*? ... In any event, those demons are only tamed by prayer and fasting.
