Last month I reviewed the book The Celestine Prophecy, by James Redfield. It was a great book that talked about concepts like how energy affects our lives, paying attention to coincidences, and people coming into our lives for a reason. It was written as an adventure parable, so the content never got mundane or too textbooky. Well I just finished reading the follow-up to that book, The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision.
The inside sleeve of this book reads: “Millions have experienced the nine insights of The Celestine Prophecy and glimpsed the emerging world view that it describes. Now, a new Insight is emerging… It is a trip that will take you through portals into other dimensions… to memories of past experiences and other centuries… to the moment before our conception and the birth vision we all experience… to the passage of death and the life review we must all face… to the self-imposed isolation of hell, where fearful souls resist awakening… and the love-filled Afterlife dimension where the knowledge of human destiny is guarded and held. And back on Earth, you will see the fear of the future that is endangering Earth’s spiritual renaissance, and you will struggle to overcome this fear by exploring the nature of intuition, synchronicity, and visualization. As you grasp the Tenth Insight, your memories will expand to include an understanding of the long expanse of human history and the special mission that we all share to bring humanity to its intended purpose. And you will begin to answer, as never before, the unspoken questions that loom over all of human experience and in every human heart: Why are we here? What are we to do? Where are we going?”
This is a very interesting book. It reiterates the topics of energy, coincidences, and the significance of people crossing our paths that are discussed in The Celestine Prophecy, but also goes into topics of intuition, synchronicity, and visualization. It talks about how society is reaching a point where we realize that there is more to life than amassing material wealth and security, and are seeking a more spiritual side to our lives – an idea that resonates with me personally.
