There is an upsurge of new currents of thoughts of beliefs that I have been researching on, and found really interesting, as all currents of witchcraft/Wicca beliefs, Neo Pagans and others, and they seem somewhat contradictory with Charles Haanel in his Foreword to The Master Key System. I quote:

The Master Key suggests methods by which the value of the principles taught may be demonstrated and put in actual practice in the daily experience.

There is a change in the thought of the world. This change is silently transpiring in our midst, and is more important than any which the world has undergone since the downfall of Paganism.

Is this upsurge of old beliefs in direct contradiction with The Master Key System?

How Neo Pagans and Wiccans fit into Charles Haanel system?

Paganism is not a "new" belief. Its practice essentially ended around 400 AD. Whereas Neopaganism and Wicca are new practices, based on ancient religions.

Clearly the Master Key System is referring to the old religion of Paganism, not the newer ones.

The Master Key System requires none of these belief systems to work.

As with most religions, I tend to think of these practices as crutches. They are basically devices that help you program your subconscious and access the divine. There's nothing wrong with crutches if you need them temporarily to help you walk, but crutches are meant to be discarded eventually when they are no longer needed.

The problem is that some people begin to see crutches as their legs, as the "way they walk."

You're right, Paganism isn't a new belief. I need to edit the Question. I have seen those links during my researches, and many more, but thanks anyway. I'll edit the title, but a response is still needed. ;)

You are right about religions being crutches, and I think I have thrown my crutches for good now. I only believe on myself and my power of changing reality.

Not sure that these systems are crutches. They maybe the sytstems, at the time of evolved understranding, that uses universal principles or laws for creating our realities. Regardless of wiccans, pagans or what have you. They still use visualization and words (affirmations) to manifest a required result. Does it really matter if rituals, candles, music, what ever actions and words are used. It still uses the same universal principles.
