This book takes James Redfield's points from his books Celestine Prophecy and Tenth Insight and adds to them in what I would call an `adstory', a Murphyism that can be associated with the term adverb. Adstory more appropriately applies to this book than sequel, because while Redfield takes the same adventurer approach he continues to add to his moral message. In Celestine and the Tenth Insight he describes how we come to a worldview understanding of a new spiritual awareness. In Shambhala he elaborates on what you do when you realize that you have it THE SECRET, the title of another intriguing book, and are part of it.
This adventure takes the reader trekking through the Tibetan Himalayas to a place called Shambhala. To give the book a sense of adventure and intrigue, trekking may not be the best word. The main character of the book is actually being chased through Tibet by the Chinese military looking to squelch the secret in the war over people's minds. He gets caught and then interacts with his enemy, only to find out that there are no enemies. Upon arrival, the reader comes to learn that Shambhala is a mythical place that only has a geographical location because you are trekking there. And that trek has a physical journey and a spiritual journey. Shambala is a place in your mind.
Says Redfield: "On the world view spectrum there are doomsday voices showing us that that our Western lifestyle is not sustainable. These folks are countered by technologists who invent there way to the next unsustainable plateau. Which over the history of man is a very short step to the next break through, giving us the impression that time is speeding up." But then I ask what is time? (see my many reviews on this subject...space and time) This book proposes a sustainable future for mankind. It's somewhat of a paradigm shift for those who have not awakened to the Secret.
So to navigate the poles of this spectrum, Redfield offers sustainable growth along with humane technology growth. It is an evolution of slowly turning pages. This is Redfield thesis in a entertaining venue. What I hear in those words is: A growth in technology that takes a look at the `whole of our social being before it introduces scientific break-thru's to society. I call it science with a conscience. I have been pleading for this for years. Is there a law of attraction that finally has me read this book? Imagine, science not conned by the need to push through for the sake of pure science. Imagine an intuitive move toward the sacred, and optimism based on a spiritual vision of where the world can go. Spiritual intuition is a metaphor that comes out of the book. So what is that? It is the subtle turning of pages in your life that embrace synchronicity; those mysterious coincidences that could pop up in a second that makes a page turn on to a new chapter in your life.
Where the book goes beyond previous Redfield books in this area is the subject of prayer. Not payers that start with "bless me father." Not prayers that start with "Dear God I need..." The rest is found by searching on key word cigarroomofbooks. Please share your views.
