The Twelfth Insight

A new book is coming out by James Redfield, the author of The Celestine Prophecy. It's called either The Hour of Reckoning or The Hour of Decision, depending on which website you go to, but either way it will talk about the long awaited twelfth Insight.

As I see it the world is at the most important of crossroads at this time in history. There are forces at work that want to see human kind lose its sense of the spiritual forever and to sink into an orgy of materialism, where matter rules and spirit is squeezed out. I also believe that another, counter-movement is underway, led by sensitive souls who feel that the world is on a precipice and that we need to re-acknowledge that we are spirit first and foremost. Matter is and should only ever be a vehicle for our spiritual and creative expression.

To me this is truly the only "war" going on in our world today. The only one that really matters.

Technology has reached a stagnation point as far as I'm concerned. Nothing that is truly innovative or helpful in easing the suffering of the human race is coming forward. Nothing inspirational or edifying - just more self indulgence, with i-phones, i-pads, more ways to keep us distracted.

The Twelfth Insight, therefore, is a hopeful vision of a new world. A world created by humans who desire a spiritual world, an organic, free-flowing world, where awareness is everything, compassion is vital, and the integrity and purity of the human spirit is foremost in every heart.

In other words, it is a time of choice - do we want to keep rocketing into a world of self-indulgence, a materialism that could destroy what we are meant to be, or do we want a new holistic world, where spirit matters more than matter.

It's up to each one of us, you and me and everyone we come into contact with. Let's promise ourselves something today - that in our deepest selves we will hold the intention that the world can be healed. That technology will serve mankind and not the other way around. That we will once again recognise that we are spirit and that this earth is only a testing ground for that spirit. In this way we can restore our priorities to sanity and to health.

Let us pray!
