The celestine prophacy and your thoughts
    #2347808 - 02/18/04 12:01 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Just woundering who read it. And what they thought of it.

Don't know what it is.  :oogle:

I read it and I must admit it opened my eyes to much more. Most of the issues covered in that book, I already believed in. (See my "Coincidences?" thread for one..) I think it's a book that everyone should read at least once, even if it's not your cup of tea.

I read The Tenth Insight as well.. and plan on checking out the workbook that is out which allows you to further place the teachings into your real life and you will begin to preceive things in quite a different perspective.

I thoroughly enjoyed that book. One of my all time favourites. I highly recommend it.

Its a great story, and it touches on some truth.
But thats about it


--------------------

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

A beautiful book with a high resonance of truth in it (although too much in the new age cathegory for the more sceptical minded).

The tenth insight relates to acendacy/trancendence (2012 and where the mayan went comes into mind).

I'm skeptical. More of an enjoyment read then anything else. Somewhat moralistic at best.

I enjoyed reading it. It offered me some new perspective and kept me entertained.

I liked it as well. Havnt read into the 10th and so on. But I do belive in the whole energy part of it. I couldnt grasp the whole disapearing thing though.

I haven't read it but a friend was really into it and we discussed it a lot. He got a lot out of it, and it's all very interesting but it didn't strike me as essential reading. As for the tenth insight, I read about 20 pages in before it clicked that it was the most poorly written book I'd ever read 20 pages of. Really terrible. Could never read it myself.

I read it. Felt it had a good way of explaining things I hadn't yet come to terms with.. Quite believable up to the dissappearing thing.. that's partly the reason I couldn't get into the 10th insight. As for the energy thing, it's SO cool to be able to see it. Haven't been able to in 2 years now, but that's another discussion all together.

No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.
