The "Experiential Guide" is well worth adding to your library, even if you haven't read "The Celestine Prophecy." As a tool for self-enlightenment and empowerment, the "Experiential Guide" stands just fine on its own
I can only tell you what I've experienced and I experienced several of the things mentioned in the book before I even read it. It's uplifting and it gives one a different way to get closer to God. It is NOT saying that you can think of a shiny new car and "poof!" there it is.
If more people were to follow the insights, perhaps there wouldn't be as much violence and corruption in our society as there is. This book talks of how peace between people can be acheived. Isn't that what Christianity and other religions are striving for?
If a path offers peace and love as God is trying to teach us, isn't that okay? Some paths are better for some people as others are better for other people. But as long as they all lead to the same place, isn't that the goal?
The Celestine Prophecy does not negate any organized religion. Perhaps, it's not for everyone, but that's okay. Just because one person is Catholic and another is Buddist does not mean that one person is right and the other wrong. How arrogant to think such a thing!
what we are: to question our destiny, and how we would like to change it. The reader is asked these questions, while subtely being nudged along the track of Redfield's pseudo-definitive anti-establishment, anti-religion philosophy. Why are we the way we are? How do struggles for energy affect us in the day to day? Analysing our personal makeup against one of four different traits to become a 'better' person.
These questions are bolstered by quotes from philosophers, religious leaders, and a variety of scripture to gain buy-in for his views.
Together with his advice on how we should deal with the undesirable entities in our lives, he also gives us his prediction for the future.
The author finally creates his own paradox, when we realise that this book is his own religion, having used religious texts to support his views on why religion is a thing to be avoided. Brittle logic or building on quicksand? You decide.
Verdict: Best avoided. Powerfully Superficial. RJP

Take a look at the number of copies up for resale - seems this is not a book that is worth keeping - and I would agree with that (clearly widely held) view. Read morePublished on May 20 2001 by Amazon Customer
