The 10th Insight ~AN EXPERIENTIAL GUIDE~not 10 Insight novel
on January 26, 2001
What we have here is a theistic, optimistic, and spiritual book with a New Age coloring. This deals a lot with synchronicities, and has had a profound effect on my life since synchronicities are something that I experience first hand, frequently. I recommend this book whether or not you believe it as a whole. You don't need to, it still will be beneficial. ( I don't believe everything it advocates) To the stubborn skeptic, it might be a little to much to swallow, but as long as you have encountered synchronicity or serendipity... this book will be enjoyed. It will only be worthless to the nihilist. Why do I give it 5 stars though? Was it really that brilliant? No, but unlike some books that are merely valuable as food for thought, this is food for life. It can be directly applied to where you stand now. Perhaps 'soul food' is the proper term. You will not read this by accident, and you will learn that nothing is an accident. Without getting into its minor beliefs, I agree with the ultimate implied message that the book purports:
The meaning of life is simply, love
It emphasizes our need to generate loving energy unto all beings, and search for the genuine meaning in our lives, through prayer and synchronistic events. It speaks a bit about analyzing synchronicities and their context, similar to interpreting dreams. There is alot of fascinating info about things like dreams, and sacred sites. There is much writing about the Afterlife. The book teaches reincarnation, Birth Vision, and the idea that your Afterlife is created by what you believe it will be while on earth. (That concept continues to confuse me!) They deny literal existences of Hell, Devils, and Judgement. These are only to be viewed as metaphors. We can transform our negative side through our heart with positive light. It even contains a chapter about Work and Business, how we can use these as spiritual relationships and oppurtunities through changes. The chapters end with individual and group work, this will probably be where the book directly helps or influences you the greatest. The author has great methods of analyzing our life and the big picture.
The vision is here, we must realize it. As I said it doesn't really degrade this books value if you don't believe in NDE's, reincarnation, or whatever. I believe there is alot of good here for us all. I don't think I should get into more detail, if you are interested at all, open your mind to this work!!
