In The Celestine Prophecy, the Fifth Insight is called, “The Message Of The Mystics.” It builds on the previous insight, “The Struggle For Power,” which shows how humans have been unconsciously competing for the only part of the energy we have access to; the part that flows between people. We integrate the Fifth INSIGHT when we see how the spiritual world can provide all we need if we can only open ourselves up to it.
The state of the mystical experience is like leaping out, feeling safe and secure, while glimpsing the future. We breakthrough, at least momentarily, to experience a moment that seems to move us past our normal level of consciousness and we sense an ultimate connection. Sometimes, this event comes through a “spiritual practice” we’ve found that brings us to this moment. It could be a peak experience at a house of worship, or through prayer, meditation, music, communing with nature or a host of other points of entry.
It is usually hard to sustain this experience for very long, as we live in a world where the conflict is still occurring. We see that we will get knocked out of this advanced state and fall back to the level of our old selves easily as we react to our environment.
This is the matter of slowly regaining what we glimpsed, a little at a time, to begin a progression back toward that ultimate consciousness. To do this, we must think of our lives as a constant flow of giving and receiving energy. Thus, we learn to consciously fill up as we interact in our daily lives.
Existing in a constant state of energy brings on the coincidences, and the coincidences help us actualize the new level on a permanent basis.
When something occurs beyond chance, and we are led forward in our lives, then we become complete people resolved to fulfill an intended mission. We sense as though we are attaining what destiny is leading us to become.
When this occurs, the level of energy that brought on the coincidences in the first place is instituted in us. We can be knocked out of it and lose energy when we are afraid, but this level serves as a new outer limit that can be regained quite easily. We fill up, grow, fill up and grow again. That is how we as humans continue the evolution…
This evolution has been going on unconsciously throughout human history. That explains why civilization has progressed and why humans have grown larger, lived longer, and so forth. Now, however, we are making the whole process conscious at large by realizing the human potential. That is what this movement toward a world-wide spiritual consciousness is all about.
The 5th insight deals with how we don’t have to steal energy from others but instead can absorb energy directly from the awareness of a spiritual connection if only we can open up to it.
We can learn to sense and become one with the Spirit, which is rich with energy. Once this insight is understood, we no longer have the need to engage in situations that attempt to dominate or create conflict with others.
Recognizing that such vast stores of energy are ours to use freely will help mankind to eliminate the many tensions and stresses that arise from interactions with others who drain energy.
Instantly, we receive a “fast forward” boost in our sense of well-being, peace, and even blissfulness. An experience described by prophets and saints as a greater sense of knowing and wisdom, and the deep emotion of love. Convincing us even more by “foretelling” that spiritual consciousness is real and provides a look ahead to the levels of awareness -the ultimate goal of spiritual evolution.
