movie based on James Redfield's worldwide best-selling novel, The
is a spiritual adventure film chronicling the discovery of ancient
scrolls in the rainforests of Peru.
The prophecy and its nine key insights predict a worldwide
awakening, arising within all religious traditions,
that moves humanity toward a deeper experience of spirituality.
I had the good fortune to view an
advance screening of The Celestine Prophecy movie. I enjoyed it very
much. Although it certainly will not be winning any awards in acting
or directing (it seemed more like a Lifetime Original Movie or a
made-for-tv movie), the message is important.
Had it been
made in Hollywood with a bigger budget or a larger film company, my
guess is some of the more important spiritual insights would have
been watered down or deleted altogether. The film points out that if
the prophecies become known and understood it will be the END of the
church, government and corporate organizations.
The story is
FICTION, but not really. It’s the way of the world as it is today.
There is a tremendous amount of resistance to the Truth (that GOD IS
LOVE) and worldly establishments, including Hollywood and the media,
although they often act as though they are liberal and open to new
ideas that will change the course of human destiny and evolution …
they are the ones doing everything to keep people in the dark.
the amateur feel of the film, I know this movie was made with Divine
Grace & Guidance. I think everyone should see it. I pray that it has
a wide distribution and is seen in every movie theatre across the
nation. I think it was intentionally made small in order to not lose
the content. I have been writing about my own personal spiritual
journey for many years now and there has been interest with book
publishers but they always say the same thing: we want to publish
it, it’s good, you’re a great writer, but you need to take out the
God stuff, tone down the Jesus references, delete about half of
this, and make it fiction.
resistance to Truth is astonishing.
So, it’s a
delight to see a movie with a bright message seep through the cracks
movie opens in Peru in 1622, with 8 secret scrolls. Then it cuts to
the present day, where John, a popular history teacher, is laid-off
from his job. He is packing up his desk and on the chalkboard it
says: Today’s Lesson: Creation & Evolution. Above the chalkboard is
a paper story-board that says EVOLUTION: The Story of Creation. It
shows scenes from the beginning of time, going through evolution
from plant to ape to man to our current fast-paced technological age
and then there is a big blank white spot where John writes in
black-magic marker in huge letters: WHAT’S NEXT?
is enough to get people thinking. What’s next? It’s a great
question. Obviously, when you look at history from a larger
perspective, you can see that we are evolving and everything is
changing constantly all the time. WHAT’S NEXT?
I don’t want
to spoil the movie by giving away what happens. I will tell you he
goes to Peru in search of the prophecy. I highly recommend this
movie as well as the journey that each of us must ultimately take.
This movie – like the prophecy says – will make us look at
everything different. There is a line in the movie that says “St.
Francis could see beauty where others couldn’t.”
This is our
destiny: to see beauty where others see none. To see the world of
light and energy that is beyond the seemingly solid world we seem to
live in. It’s about seeing the world the way it really is. There are
many important messages in this movie:
THE SECRET TO KEEPING YOURSELF CONNECTED.
of the later Insights is incredible: TO AMPLIFY. It talks about
energy and about giving energy to someone who is giving it back to
us – so that both parties are giving energy, not taking or
controlling or manipulating – and when everyone is doing this
(giving to each other) then humanity will take another step in
taking energy from other people, you give it to other people, all
the time, no matter what.”
thing about this movie is that it has nothing, zero, to do with
spirituality or doctrine. It has to do with PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
It’s about following the path of Truth, which you must experience
To know that
Heaven is HERE and NOW is our destiny. This is God’s Will for us.
one scene in the movie where John wants to quit. There are
rebels and gunshots and it’s all getting a little too intense
and he’s lost and he says to Marjorie, another character who
is on the journey with him, “I think we should make to the
border and get out of Peru.” And Marjorie turns to John,
without missing a beat, and says: “HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN WHY
To me, that
is the best scene in the movie. There is always the temptation to
quit when the going gets rough. But beside us, on the path to Truth,
are mighty companions who travel with us, reminding us of our
function when we forget. It’s our destiny to keep going until we
know and understand all mysteries, until we see clearly.

own responsibility TO GIVE “to all people, all the time, no matter
what” in order to shift human destiny to the next level.
standing in a light so bright that no one can see us, except those
standing in the light with us.
"If we pay
attention, we can find a greater life, no matter where we are,
no matter who
we are, no matter what our circumstances are. If you tune into
the mysterious coincidences in your life, if you discover and
then follow your intuitions, you will find that there's a door
of opportunity for a greater life for you. You can't be a
victim and do it, but if you go beyond that, if you find a way
out of whatever circumstance you're in, whatever block you
think you might face, what happens is that it works. It always
works. The only thing that holds any of us back is not
believing that it works."
