REVIEWING THE JOURNEY …. by James Redfield

“Yeah.” I said.“I know of people who have had near-death experiences often report that their whole lives flash before them. Is that what you mean?”

Will looked thoughtful. “Yes, but the increased awareness of the review process is having great impact on human culture. It’s another part of the higher perspective provided by the knowledge of the Afterlife. Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, and as their stories are shared and talked about, the reality of the Life Review is becoming part of our everyday understanding. We know that after death, we have to look at our lives again; and we are going to agonize over every missed opportunity, over every case where we failed to act.  This knowledge is contributing to our determination to pursue every intuitive image that comes to mind, and keep it firmly into awareness. We’re living life in a more deliberate way. We don’t want to miss a single important event. We don’t want the pain of looking back later and realizing that we blew it, that we failed to make the right decisions.”

From “The Tenth Insight” – Holding the Vision. Written by James Redfield in 1996.

Chapter: Reviewing the Journey – Pages 39-40.


Comment by Cyril Bryan:

James Redfield ‘s book “The Tenth Insight” is a sequel to his extremely popular book “The Celestine Prophecy”. Both books were written in the 1990’s and were world best sellers. They offered insights to the emerging worldview that one could open the senses through portals into other dimensions such as passages backwards and forwards into time and space… to the reality of physical death that we all must face and the “life review” as we move into the love-filled Afterlife.

The books are written as fiction but could be interpreted as lessons in life’s journey. They ask the hard questions related to personal existence – Why are we here? What are we to do? Where are we going? These books, and many similar ones written in the last thirty years have had a great influence on current generations who have been seeking answers to this riddle of Life on Planet Earth.

There are doubters and those who scoff at spiritual enlightenment as nothing more than delusions of the mind. (See the entry: The Human Soul – An Ancient Idea).They are un-aware!.

However, there has been a groundswell of seekers who have reconnected and awakened their innate ability through meditation and other means. The capabilities of the shaman and the gurus and those who have over the ages talked about the “other dimensions” are now available to all who want to experience the power that makes one fully aware and connected to the Universal Life Force of Natural Energy.

For these people, the “fear of death” and our mourning for those who have passed is no longer the same. These people are now more in tune with finding out about themselves, their healing powers and communicating with their innate spiritual capabilities. They are now less inclined to view physical death as the finality of their existence. They believe that with death they may be physically gone from this dimension but their spiritual journey continues in another dimension.

In this book excerpt James Redfield therefore points out that it is important  for everyone to find out the real reason for our present existence, so there are no regrets in the Afterlife, and that the “Life Review” will be a pleasant experience.Therefore, we must all actualize our fullest potential in this life and help others achieve theirs, while we share and experience this temporal existence.
