Go on a journey to explore ancient eastern traditions.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT:
In The Celestine Prophecy, governments kill people to prevent them from becoming too spiritual. Though it’s not believable, I’m not complaining. It really kept the story moving forward.
The narrator is a middle-aged guy who never gets named. He leaves his job, and then a series of coincidences happen to him. He finds out about nine insights found in a manuscript. They are being kept from scientists by the Peruvian government. This interests him, and now that he has a lot of time at hand, he books a ticket to Peru. One after the other, he discovers and learns the nine insights.
WHAT ARE THE INSIGHTS?
- We are discovering again that we live in a mysterious world. It is full of sudden coincidences and synchronistic encounters that seem destined.
- As more of us awaken to this mystery, we will create a completely new worldview. Redefining the universe as energetic and sacred.
- We’ll discover that everything around us, all matter, consists of and stems from a divine energy. We are beginning to see and understand it.
- We can see that humans have always felt disconnected from this sacred source. They have tried to take energy by dominating each other. This struggle is responsible for all human conflict.
- The only solution is to cultivate a personal reconnection with the divine. A transformation that fills us with energy and love, and lifts us into a Higher Self-Awareness.
- In this awareness, we can release our own pattern of control. We are here to share that helps evolve humanity towards this new level of reality.
- In pursuit of this mission, we can discover an inner intuition that shows us where to go and what to do. It brings a flow of coincidences that opens the doors for our mission to unfold.
- When enough of us enter this evolutionary flow, we will build a new culture. Our bodies will evolve to ever higher levels of energy.
- In this way, we energize our bodies, generation by generation, until we walk into a heaven we can finally see.
WHAT I LIKED:
My a-ha moment came when The Celestine Prophecy discussed how energy flows between people. After losing an argument, I always feel drained of energy for a couple of days. And yes, it does give me energy when I win an argument, too. You can prevent this by filling your energy levels from your environment. This also makes sense. Everybody knows that “recharged” feeling after you spent a day at the beach or in nature.
I also found the “control issues” that people have very interesting. Everybody tries to control those around them in a specific way. And everybody adapts to the control issues they grew up with.
WHAT I DISLIKED:
I don’t believe in the whole Big Bang theory. It feels like the author tried to force his views on it onto the reader. But hey, this is a work of fiction, and I guess the purpose of the book is to take the gems and leave the rest.
I kept on thinking of a saying: “Be open-minded but not so open-minded that your brains fall out.” I am pretty sure that The Celestine Prophecy has something significant to give to anybody who reads it. But, you must stay open minded while digging for your specific truth. I am glad that I read The Celestine Prophecy. If you feel like there could be more to life than what we see, then give the book a go.
