I find a lot of books about spirituality and enlightenment wordy and difficult to understand. This book however, by telling a fiction story made it much easier to get into while still offering tons of spiritual insight and material for self development and growth. It was very interesting and enjoyable.
My one critique would be the blatant disregard that not all families have a father and a mother and not all relationships are a man and a woman. The discussion on family structures and romantic relationships was quite black and white, traditional, and dated in this sense.
Otherwise, this is a wonderful, intriguing work sure to bring out the the spiritual being in all of us.
I enjoyed this book. I met a man that introduced me to this book. I felt ready for more growth and enlightenment and then I met this young man that shared this book with me. I have reached a new level of spiritual understanding and evolved into a higher being. It has been clear. It is true, people and things are no coincidences....
A must read!
But only if you're ready for a newer awakening.
I recall friends in college telling me I have to read this new book called the Celestine Prophecy. I saw it on my roommates shelf for a year. I pondered what it must have been about but just kept pushing it off. They said "this was the book for me" but still I didn't take the advice. Maybe I wasn't ready. Timing is everything. But now. Finally. I have read it and the book not only speaks to me in a deep and impactful way but also that it answers so many questions that have been lingering in my mind for almost 4 decades. It has put me on a path of exploration, adventure and questioning. I'm eager to look for the insights and coincidences that have been appearing in my life all this time with a new set of eyes. Thank you.
This book was written as a story to present and introduce concepts that should be pursued and developed within each and every one of us if we are to mature and to work with others at a mature level.
Do not let the fact that this was written as a story to present this information deter you from learning about what is presented herein. Most of the Bible is presented in story fashion as well, yet it does not detract from the message that God is presenting to us.
The content and ideas behind this book are very interesting. The story really draws you in and is riveting at many points. Has many interesting spiritual aspects and made me feel more aware of how I interact with my environment.
The story takes place in Peru, has lots of interesting characters, and beautiful imagery and really unfolds as you learn more and more about these ancient understandings of life.
Great story and way to share such an enriching way to look and the world as we learn to better understand energy and the roles we can play in using this energy. I really love the spiritual psychology that the book presents and highlights so many of my own views and experiences. Thank you!
I now wish there were more parameters to rate this book by because objectively the dramatic story, I feel, is quite mediocre; however, I had never been less prepared to read such a spiritually momentous book.
Though framed in a fictional narrative, the story cuts straight to the core of the reader forcing them to evaluate their actions and interactions between themselves, others, and the world around them.
I finished the book on a stair master and felt powerfully compelled to leave a review so I apologize if it's a tad sloppy!
I highly recommend you read this book.
I am thoroughly touched by the insights and have related much of this amazing story to that my my own belief system. Acquiring the title for this book when I did has truly set in my mind we do have a greater control on life as we live and will be even more mindful in traveling my journey from here.... WOW
I could not stop listening to this book. I've been meaning to read it for years and now only wish I had indeed read it sooner. Enlightening and entertaining. I want to listen again because I feel I will hear something I missed the first time. LOVE IT!
