In The Celestine Prophecy, the Ninth Insight is called, “The Emerging Culture.” It builds on the previous insight, “The Interpersonal Ethic,” which reveals how, when we communicate with others, we MUST enhance our attitude of giving as we communicate. We must “uplift” others by looking past their ego or defense mechanisms to see their spiritual essence.
The Ninth Insight says, as we search for our spiritual truth, we are led into a future where everyone has slowed down and become more alert to each meaningful encounter that comes along. Our lives feel secure as the Divine presence guides us. We trust in a greater plan.
The Ninth Insight is a prediction of how human culture will evolve as a result of mass spiritual awareness. When a large number of people become mindful of the previous insights and work toward fulfilling their Spiritual Destiny, our way of life will change dramatically.
According to the Ninth Insight, the first step is a period of intense self-examination. Our sense of purpose will be satisfied by the thrill of our own development — An excitement transpires deep within as we focus on our behavior, thoughts, and relationships. During this time, we expand our consciousness to a new level with the sensation of receiving an intuition and seeing it confirmed with a synchronistic event. Fireworks go off while we watch our destinies unfold.
With so many of our synchronistic occurrences coming from other people in our lives, think of how we will be able to uplift our connections with others when we begin to transcend our control dramas and form more authentic relationships. Once free from manipulation, we will consciously share our life stories with others until, joyfully, we discover the importance of the relationship to help us on our path of personal discovery.
We will be able to sense the underlying significance of all the people we encounter along the way – whether the relationship evolves to become lifelong or you move forward again on your own individual journey, and the meeting was meant to teach us something in one way or another. Either way, we exist with new awareness and can thereafter touch others in a way not possible beforehand. Can you visualize our personal encounters having this much meaning and significance?
As we learn to develop and pursue our particular path, truth by truth, the Ninth Insight says the overall culture will transform in a very predictable way.
Imagine if you will…
People are guided by their intuitions, and everyone knows precisely what to do and when to do it, and this will fit harmoniously with the actions of others. No one will consume excessively because we will have let go of the need to control for security. Life has become about something else altogether.
We receive clear intuitions of who we really are and what we are supposed to be doing, and very often we may discover we are in the wrong job, and have to jump to another type of work in order to continue to grow.
We grasp how beautiful and spiritual the natural world really is and hold all of nature with respect and awe. We demand an end to any economic activity that threatens this treasure. And those closest to this situation find alternative solutions to the problems because someone intuits these alternatives as they seek their life’s mission.
We realize that the truth we have to tell and the things we have to do are much too unique to fit into the usual job setting. So we find ways to cut our employment hours to pursue our own truths. Two or three people hold what used to be one full-time job.
We continue to discover more about the energy dynamics of the universe, and see what really happens when we give someone something. Giving is really a universal principle of support; not just for churches, but for everyone. When we give, we receive in return. We begin to give constantly, and we always have more coming in than we could possibly give away.
Our gifts will go to the people who have given us spiritual truth. When people come into our lives at just the right time to give us the answers we need, we give them money. This is how we will begin to supplement our incomes and ease out of the occupations which limit us. The work we do (teaching, nursing, accounting, etc.) will feed our soul and lead us further down the path of our Destined mission.
As more people engage in this spiritual economy, we begin a real shift to the culture of the next millennium. We will have moved through the stage of evolving into our right occupation and will be entering the stage of getting paid for growing freely and offering our unique truth to others. Paying others for their insights will begin the transformation, and then as more and more parts of the economy are automated, currency is disappearing altogether. We don’t need it. Since we are all correctly following our intuitive guidance, we only take what we need.
