Review: The Tenth Insight by James Redfield. This is the second book of “The Celestine Prophecy” series which I didn’t really relate too much that was written in the book but however interesting. I related more to some of the content in the first book and I connected more with some of my own opinions and beliefs. This second book was written for someone who is deeply involved with the spirit world. Redfield really came on strong spiritually, starting from the beginning of evolution to the afterlife. Plus, Redfield provides introduction to some basic metaphysics and his own personal vision of utopia. This book still mentions the nine insights of the first book and then the tenth insight wrote about in this book goes deeper into the spiritual aspect. I’m not criticizing what has been written and would not offend anyone of their belief. It was just way over my head to understand or connect with the story. It emphasizes a need to generate a loving energy unto all beings in search for a genuine meaning in lives through prayer and synchronistic events. There was a lot of fascinating data about dreams and secret sites. I found the last third of the book interesting and more on my level. What I thought Redfield was trying to get across to the reader is encouragement through positive behavior. He wrote about the way we live and think about what and why the world is the way it is today. All the insights came together in a more understandable way about the economy, environment, population, race, culture, etc…Redfield doesn’t claim to be a professional in these areas he just expresses in words explainable to the reader as a small spiritual awakening to negative and positive aspects as we strive to live out our lives in harmony. His spiritual wisdom is more on what we are trying to achieve in a changing evolutionary journey… ( )

After millions of people read "The Celestine Prophecy" and failed to actualize the full potential of spiritual energy released by following the guidelines of the first nine insights, Redfield exposes a tenth insight.

Narrated in the same style as "The Celestine Prophecy" this added insight is told as a parable, taking the reader on an adventure of danger, intrigue, and self discovery. Redfield provides more detailed explanations of the first nine insights and admits the nine insights alone will not bring a full awakening.

The "Tenth Insight" deals with spiritual connection to the afterlife, and solving the mystery of human existence. Redfield shares his theories about intuition, dreams, reincarnation, the current world situation, the birth of the universe and the history of evolution, religion and the bible, the concept of hell, the afterlife, prayer, and attaining full knowledge of our life existence.

Open your mind to the concept of pre-life memory and afterlife memory, all achievable while we are here on earth. The ultimate goal – the two dimensions can become one; a World Vision with energy and communication shifting back and forth between life and afterlife. Death, as we know it, would be obsolete. Redfield also explains how the World Vision ties in with bible theories (Armageddon and the rapture). Focusing on love, optimism, and the power of positive thinking with the aid of the ten insights, the human race would be capable of creating a utopia on earth. If one is to believe Redfield’s theory, all spirits born to humans come to earth with good intentions. But since newly born humans have no recollection of afterlife, once the spirit enters a human body, it becomes part of the mortal world on earth and is dominated by fear and an uncontrollable urge to survive.

One major flaw in Redfield’s rationale is that he expects the reader to take a leap of faith and believe in the unknown….that anything is possible, yet he refuses to believe that evil spirits/souls can exist…simply because he has not yet encountered one.

All things considered, "The Tenth Insight" is thought provoking, entertaining, and amusing to contemplate. ( )

In the sequel to the best-selling "The Celestine Prophecy", the ancient Peruvian manuscript and its nine vital insights begin to have a profound impact on the lives of millions of people around the world.

As always I read books as my soul requires confirmation of my journey here on earth, this book validated a lot that is going on not only with me, but around the world. A must read I feel for all of humanity. ( )

Being a student of Kabbalah, I knew "Celestine Prophecy" was going to be followed by a sequel. There had to be a Tenth Insight to complete the path.

Actually . . . I lied. I knew there would be a sequel because I calmed my inner self and saw it happening.

I lied again. I knew there would be a sequel because of all the money Redfield made on the first book telling us things we already knew. Yep, that's it.

You will notice, however, that I did buy the book and read the book. The story was a good one, it was well told and it did no harm while bringing religion and spirituality to people all across the world. How many other books or authors can say that?

The Tenth Insight did not really explore any new territory and the author's style, while quite good, can only carry an audience so far if there is no message in the story, if nothing new is being added to the philosophy. For me, this is where the journey ended.

If you found inspiration in this series, the author succeeded. It just did not do it for me, but I will not say anything against what Redfield is bringing to people. We all need to reach for something higher and if this series gives you the inspiration to do that, I'm all for it. ( )

...I Looked and behold,
a door was opened in heaven:
and the first voice which I hear was as ... a trumpet
talking with me; which said, come up hither, and I will show you 
things which must be hereafter. And immediately 
I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven..
and there was a rainbow round the throne,
in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne
were four and twenty seats: and up on the seats I saw four
and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment...
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away ...
For my wife and inspiration
Salle Merrill Redfield

This volume is the second novel in The Celestine Series, beginning with The Celestine Prophecy. One of the characters of The Celestine Prophecy, Charlene, disappears while exploring a forest in the Appalachian Mountains. The book discusses ideas about other dimensions, past lives, conception and birth, the passage through death to an afterlife, hell and heaven. It also illustrates the author's vision of human destiny and the idea that fear of the future is endangering Earth's spiritual renaissance. In the story, each individual soul is part of a larger "Soul Group", which shares the mission of helping the evolution of the cosmos. At times, a soul from a given Group incarnates itself, choosing the conditions of its life according to its needs, while the other souls observe. Each soul creates a reality around itself, which later brings consequences upon it. These consequences take the form of life and afterlife, which vary according to the person's choices. On Earth, people speak of the prophecy written in the Book of Revelation as if it were coming true. Many fear that it will come partly true, in that a dictator (an Antichrist) will arise, but will not be thrown down. To counteract this idea, which is damaging to the spiritual renaissance, the protagonists hold their own, Utopian "World Vision" to the exclusion of its opposite, until it dominates the opposite at the book's climax.… (more)
