Revisiting the “Insights”

The Celestine Prophecy

I remember when The Celestine Prophecy “hit” and became a surprise phenom as a self-published book by James Redfield in 1993 (!). By 1997 it was a bona fide global movement, feeding a previously undetected hunger in awakening seekers.

When I read it, though, I just couldn’t push through it, so in need of a proper edit I found it to be. The Insights were good; it was the uneven storytelling that derailed me.

But when the Experiential Guides came out (kudos to Carol Adrienne, the worthy driver of those volumes), I found the spiritual “pay dirt” re: the insights.

Seems the vast majority of Celestine Prophecy readers liked dipping their toes in the rising tide of new age waters via a goes-down-easy parable. For whatever reason, I’m more of a nonfiction, nuts & bolts, show me the steps, deep-dive aficionado. This just happens to be where the juice is for me, and it’s why the self-help genre has been a good fit for my career.

I did consider the indie film version of the original story well done, so that was nice :)

This all came up today when someone on Facebook posted the above  graphic of the original nine insights. That first book offered a perfect point of entry for people who were ready to start expanding their minds beyond the mundane matters of the “daily grind.” Redfield, blessed with perfect divine timing and flow, gave the world something it hadn’t realized it craved until it appeared.

Following are all twelve insights (whew!), with commentary on each by the author. Worth a visit/revisit. Bless all – and remember to stay alert for those meaningful winks from the Universe. Maybe you’re engaging with one now. ;)

National Get Over It Day

Greetings

This struck me funny at first glance – then profound, the deeper I felt into it:

Today Is National Get Over It Day

I didn’t pursue what this was about – likely someone playing with creative venting. The thought struck me: what would happen if everyone on the planet just got over it, and themselves, at long last? Not necessarily for long… but happening at once would pack a wallop. This alone would trigger a noticeable upshift in the noosphere – this planet’s collective field of consciousness.

I’m not sure I really felt this before as viscerally as I am right now (amping energies can certainly amp our senses), but jeez, just check in for a second with the notion that billions of people are plowing through their lives, bearing really burdensome grudges, great and small, throughout forever. I mean, this is so elementary I can hardly believe I’m considering it of value to discuss with you.

My mind, for whatever reason, beamed in on this tragic idea of a planet populated with walking wounded, distracted by so much crap it doesn’t occur to them that they can open their clear-flow channel to the infinite, indescribable source, heal their minds, and ultimately enjoy, en masse, an incredibly improved earth experience.

This is certainly understandable, as there’s been powerful negative influencers in this scenario. I’m not trying to beat anyone up here. I’m in this story too.

This dismal image suitably conveys the overall, beat-down condition (and contents) of human souls who have been on the gerbil wheel for a vast, convoluted period of time/ timelessness, accumulating all ungodly manner of problems, pains, resentments, and so forth, all along. The negative end of the vibrational spectrum.

This stuff is basically good for one thing: being in the way. Holding us back. Preoccupying us so completely with troubles we can neither stand nor think straight.

What if we all maybe participated in this “joke” born of creative venting, and discovered our ability to transmute all the sh*t instantaneously into neutral cosmic fodder for future flow, and finally get off our knees to stand fresh and clean and lighter and Lighter – far better prepared for whatever is coming next.

Are We There Yet?

there-is-no-time-there-never-was-and-there-never-will-be.jpgPosting this new conversation between Lisa Harrison and a woman I’ve not been aware of before… Anaiis Sallas. The topic is Earth 2.0, how to get there from here, and what can happen personally and collectively during the journey.

Anaiis has some perspectives that I enjoyed, some experiences I could relate to (ie awakened kundalini … longstanding acute pain …  also The Monroe Institute… altho I do not associate my kundalini experiences with TMI), as well as a couple of things that struck me more along the lines of “hm, well, maybeeee” … but all in all this is a thoughtful and often illuminating 1.5 hours that I respect enough to post here.  Love … Whitehawk
