I just finished reading The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure, by James Redfield, which is such an exciting book! The book was written back in 1993, but is relevant to a main concept that I have been reading and learning about lately – energy, namely how it works and its’ function in our lives.
The description reads: “In the rain forests of Peru, an ancient manuscript has been discovered. Within its pages are 9 key insights into life itself – insights each human being is predicted to grasp sequentially, one insight then another, as we move toward a completely spiritual culture on Earth. The Celestine Prophecy contains secrets that are currently changing our world. Drawing on the ancient wisdom found in a Peruvian manuscript, it tells you how to make connections between the events happening in your own life right now… and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come! A book that has been passed from hand to hand, from friend to friend, since it first appeared in small bookshops across America, The Celestine Prophecy is a work that has come to light at a time when the world deeply needs to read its words. The story it tells is a gripping one of adventure and discovery, but it is also a guidebook that has the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where you are in life… and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimism as you head into tomorrow.”
This book is a great read. It talks a lot about energy – that everything is composed of energy, how we draw energy into our lives, that strife in relationships is really a struggle for energy, that what we consider “power struggles” are really energy struggles, and how we can use energy to propel our lives along their paths. It contains many great concepts – nothing happens by chance, pay attention to coincidences, people come into our lives and cross out paths for a reason – which are not new concepts. But Redfield presents them in a new way, as life lessons that are imperative for our personal progression. And the plot was exciting. This book truly is an adventure!
