The Secret of Shambahla by James Redfield
Information: 252 pages, paperback
They say: When James Redfield wrote his phenomenal international bestsellerThe Celestine Prophecy, millions of readers discovered life-affirming truths about synchronicity, intuition and personal destiny. Here the inspiring journey continues, carrying us to a new adventure and new spiritual truths that are emerging in human awareness. In the remote snow-covered mountains near Tibet lies a community long thought to be a mere myth called Shambhala, or Shangri-La. Here, in this place, is a knowledge that has been hidden for centuries, and an insight that can have a profound impact on the way we live our lives. Your search for Shambhala begins with the words of a child and the vision of an old friend - slender clues which will lead you to Kathmandu and then to Lhasa, Tibet. Amid blowing snows and perilous mountains, you will meet the members of the secret Tibetan sect that guards mysterious legends - the verbal instructions handed down for centuries that describe the inner changes one must undergo before entering Shambhala.
Finally, with Chinese Agents in pursuit, you will pass through regions where anger and compassion struggle for ascendancy. You will also arrive at a place where the stunning reality about human prayer-energy - our underdeveloped ability to increase the synchronicity in our lives and influence what will happen to us in the future - is revealed. Like James Redfield's other books, The Secret of Shambhala has a parable effect. Open yourself to this amazing adventure and the experience will stretch your world view. It will also leave you determined to channel your thoughts and wishes into a dynamic force that can help you to liberate your life, enhance the lives of others and actively change the world.

The story takes you forward through further adventures and experiences, in search of 'The Eleventh Insight'. To read it as a work of fiction, it is an exciting adventure story, with the addition of deeper insights to be gained from the weaving within the tale, many of the messages and spiritual truths which are currently emerging into human awareness. Not wishing to spoil the experience of reading the book for anyone by describing what happens in the story, I merely make the observation that the myth of Shambhala (or Shangri-La) has fascinated many of us over the years and this book offers an insight into a possible truth behind the myths. As in his previous books, the story contains many examples of synchronicity, tales of mysterious legends, secrets uncovered and not a small amount of danger and excitement. The story emphasises how human prayer-energy can be very powerful, and reminds us that, in many parts of the world, anger and compassion still struggle for ascendancy. Earth and humankind still have many changes to go through in order to be healed and live in flow with the Universe, each of us can fulfil our part in helping to bring about changes and healing, we just have to pay attention and do what we feel guided to.
The amazing adventures and experiences contained in this story can leave us determined to pay more attention to the many synchronicities we encounter in our lives, to heed the messages we are shown and learn from the lessons we are given. We can use the knowledge gained this way to develop spiritually and influence positively our......more
