New spiritualism is emerging not only in the form of alternative sects, but is also common among religious as a new culture of religiosity. The religious influenced by modern spiritualism, without belonging to any particular sect, They have resorted to a kind of self-made, eclectic and inner spirituality, and with little attention to institutional religiosity, they seek peace and inner satisfaction with their "personal style." Due to the spread of this trend among religious, especially liberal religious, the issue of the present study is how to identify this trend and explained how much a religious has entered into this new discourse. We will try, with the help of sociological research on the discourse of literature of the new spiritualists, to identify the signs of this new style of religiosity and provide the ground for identifying this unique and formless phenomenon. In the present article, the discoursiv signs of the new spiritual discourse are presented under the general headings of "introversion" and "worldliness", and with the help of the theory of self-centeredness as well as the theory of postmaterialism, various aspects of these signs will be discussed. Analyzing these signs, in addition to helping to identify new spirituality and differentiate it from the discourse of institutional religiosity, can implicitly show what challenges a religious belonging to the Abrahamic religions faces in this religiosity by accepting this new approach. These challenges stem mainly from the incompatibility of monotheistic / submissive thinking (the institutional Abrahamic Religions) with Individual / Autonomous Thinking (Modern Spiritualism).
