Started out great. Was truly excited about this book and then I got lost in the fog. Maybe I expected too much.

The narrator puts all of the insights he's learned about thus far to use. A tad bit unbelievable at times. ( )

Toen schrok koning Nebukadnezar en stond ijlings op;
hij nam het woord en zeide...

Hebben wij niet drie mannen gebonden in het vuur geworpen?
... Zie, ik zie vier mannen vrij wandelen in het vuur
en zij hebben geen letsel en het uiterlijk van de vierde
gelijkt op dat van de zoon van God...
Geloofd zij de God van Sadrach, Mesach en Abed-nego!
Hij heeft zijn engelen gezonden en zijn dienaren bevrijd,
die zich op Hem hebben verlaten.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446676489, Paperback)

Author James Redfield takes readers to the mountains of Tibet in search of the mythical place called Shambhala, otherwise known as Shangri-La. Like his previous bestselling books, Redfield holds the tension between an adventure travel story (in this book, armed Chinese soldiers doggedly pursue him) and divine encounters. Rather than preach his spiritual beliefs, Redfield likes to portray himself as a naive pilgrim, receiving wisdom and insights from the various guides and teachers he meets on his metaphysical journeys.

Shambhala is indeed a paradise, just as it was lovingly portrayed in the famous James Hilton novel Lost Horizon. It is also a spiritual utopia, and Redfield takes great pleasure in pondering the possibilities of living in a culture that is entirely "focused on the life process." Residents explain their lifestyle, which has emerged from a completely spiritual culture, including some rather sensible opinions about technology, parenting, and even genetic testing. Meanwhile, Redfield remains the wide-eyed observer. Those who loved the characters, writing style, and epiphanies in The Celestine Prophecy will not be disappointed with Redfield's latest inspirational portrait of a new world order. --Gail Hudson
