AN INVITATION FOR
NEW AGE WEB SITES
Des Plaines, Illinois (USA)
|NA NET Global is a network of New Age-related web sites. Of course,
what this means to you depends on your definition of a network. Let us share with
you our interpretation of a few words that will allow you to see just what we're
A Network is a group of individuals and organizations who have something in common (in this case, the New Age) and work together to empower each individual member to be the best they can be. It provides some type of system to allow its members to contact each other, (e.g., a mailing list, providing email addresses and other contact information).
Networking is the process which is tranforming our world into an Age of Peace and Harmony as people share with each other information and resources. It is the tool that can single-handedly transform our world into a Paradise. According to the book Megatrends by John Nasbitt, written back in the 1980's, networking is one of the ten most powerful processes to effect change on our world. On a more practical level, it is the collecting and sharing of information and resources by various individuals and groups to accomplish a specific goal or project -- the key word here is sharing.
A Networker is an individual who collects and shares information, (usually on a specific range of topics), or is the catalyst for bringing together people and organizations of like mind.
The Internet is a world-wide network of computers which is allowing humanity to quickly interact with each other and share information and experiences on almost any subject imaginable to Man.
Now that you know what we mean when we use those terms, let us tell you a bit about the goals of NA NET Global, our reasons for coordinating the Network, and how it compares to its sister network, UFO NET Global.
There are probably various Internet networks of web sites already in existence; our goal is NOT to replace, or become THE network, but rather to enhance and augment them and to be a visible example of the power of cooperation by showing how many sites have actually agreed to work together. Obviously the advantage of such a network, since the Internet is International, is that if there are any incredible events, news, or new, important information related to the New Age, Prophecy or Spiritual Transformation that originates from one of our members ... we can share this information with the world quickly and easily.
We hope if there are some other types of New Age networks of web sites, that there may be a way to link all of the networks together, as this is truly the goal of networking. Thus, NA NET Global is very open to participate as a member in other such networks. Besides, in the true spirit of networking, a particular site can be a member of many networks. The end result of what NA NET Global can accomplish, or any other network for that matter, is really only limited by our imaginations!
You may ask, "Why is VJ Enterprises doing this? What's in it for them?" Well, to be honest, we're in for a lot of hard work, but there are great rewards to come as well! We are doing this because we believe any visible example that can be provided of the power of cooperation and sharing of resources is one of the highest forms of the Light that one can offer. We are hoping that, as other organizations see and begin to understand the simple process that we have set up for others to participate in NA NET Global, other members will help us to share the load and that eventually the Member Pages can be mirrored to other web sites all over the world. One final note on why we're doing this -- you all know that when your heart is singing and you hear an inner call, you must do what makes you the happiest, and that's what NA NET Global does for us!!!
You may already be familiar with UFO NET Global, our UFO Global Network. Both networks operate essentially the same way, with some modifications where necessary to provide for the differences between the two topics: New Age and UFOs. Registration of your web site, membership requirements, and general administration will be handled in the exact same way. Please see below for a detailed explanation of the criteria for becoming a member of NA NET Global.
As you can see, we hope that NA NET Global will become much more than just a well-organized list of New Age-related web site links. We foresee it as being an incredibly powerful, comprehensive network of the providers of New Age-related material on the Internet, which facilitates swift distribution of New Age-related information among its members and to the world.
( Special Notice: NA NET Global and V J Enterprises are proud to support the latest book, Holistic Directory for Planet Earth -- a guide of over 7,000 New Age and Holistic Resources in the world done by Patti Normandy Greenwood and Darrell Thomas Wilson.

NA NET Online Member Search
|VJ Enterprises is offering to coordinate the membership of this
network at no cost. This means that there is NO FEE to join
NA NET Global. In exchange for this service, we ask only that you meet
five simple requirements in order to become a member:
1) The basic requirement is that each member offers a web site on the Internet, as this is a network of web sites.
2) A Member Site must be involved in sharing information or knowledge that is related to the broad category of New Age. We are open to any web site joining, but people who will be viewing the Member Page Lists will be seeking web sites specifically related to the New Age. When considering prospective members, we will not differentiate between commercial and non-commercial web sites; the fundamental idea of a network remains that all members help each other. Before a prospective member is accepted, we will visit the web site to verify that it is dedicated to providing New Age-related material. If you have received our Invitation Email, we have already visited your web site and will extend membership to you automatically.
3) Each prospective member must complete the NA NET Global Registration Form. The information given to us via this form will be used to compose the member's entry in our Member Pages, (an email address is requested in case we have any questions).
After the first three criteria have been met, the new member will be added to the Member Pages the following month or within 30 days of receiving the form information (e.g., if it's received at the end of the month).
Each Member Page will be included in three separate Member Page Lists, sorted as follows: (1) geographically by country, (2) alphabetically by name, and (3) categorically by New Age-related topics. These Member Page Lists will be available for people to view by following the above links.
4) Each member is required to post the NA NET Global Description Page and a graphical link to this page from their main web page. VJ Enterprises will provide the Description Page and the graphics to the members. The purpose of the Description Page is to describe NA NET Global, explain its goals, and provide graphical links to the Member Page Lists. So, when people visit a Member Site, they will be able to click on a graphical link to the NA NET Global Desciption Page, read about the Network, and link to the Member Page Lists. We hope that as NA NET Global expands, we will be able to mirror these Member Pages in Europe, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. (This description is somewhat similar but shorter than the page you are reading now).
5) It is each member's responsibility to contact VJ Enterprises if any of the information originally given via the NA NET Global Registration Form changes or if their web site will no longer be up on the Web.
Since the maintenance of this network is going to require people's time and effort, we believe it is appropriate to mention the name of each sponsor with a link to their web site or email address on the NA NET Global Description Page as a gesture of gratitude for offering their services.
In closing, there are a few relatively painless criteria that you must meet to become a member of NA NET Global:
|The goal of this network is to provide an opportunity for different organizations
and individuals who are sponsoring UFO-related web sites on the Internet to work more
closely together. We see NA NET Global as a place where members can share, learn
from each other, and possibly work together on special projects. We are following the
principles as was laid out by the Open Network started in Denver, Colorado in the early
1980's, that membership is open to any site which, in their own way is working towards
creating a better world. VJ Enterprises will not be judging other web sites for potential
membership; we will act just as a custodian. Also this network as a separate entity will
not be responsible for any of its members' actions and will not be making any statements
to say we are in support of what each member does.
A network serves as a focusing point where the members can meet and share their ideas, services or resources based upon each members own unique preferences. We believe NA NET Global is a straight-forward, simple concept but one that can empower its members and be extremely beneficial to everyone. We know that each time a cooperative venture such as this attempted it will have its challenges. However, we believe that this network is being spiritually inspired and, just as we have been amazed at the growth on our own web site, so we believe that some truly incredible projects will come out of NA NET Global.
Lastly, we will offer a mailing list as a way for our members to communicate with each other. The mailing list will allow members to collaborate on projects of mutual interest and alert each other of important, breaking news, (which can then be provided to the world by interested members who can add this information to their web pages).
If anyone has any questions about this Network, or some other ideas to offer in helping us to make NA NET Global the best it can be, please feel free to contact me at my email address below:
