“We must assume every event has significance and contains a message that pertains to our questions...this especially applies to what we used to call bad things...the challenge is to find the silver lining in every event, no matter how negative.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“...Dreams come to tell us something about our lives that we are missing.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“When love first happens, the individuals are giving each other energy unconsciously and both people feel buoyant and elated. That's the incredible high we call being ‘in love.’ Unfortunately, once they expect this feeling to come from another person, they cut themselves off from the energy in the universe and begin to rely even more on the energy from each other--only now there doesn’t seem to be enough and so they stop giving each other energy and fall back into their dramas in an attempt to control each other and force the other’s energy their way.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“When we dislike someone, or feel threatened by someone, the natural tendency is to focus on something we dislike about the person, something that irritates us.

All they know is that they suddenly feel less beautiful and less confident, and it is because we sapped their energy.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy

James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“...The human perception of this energy first begins with a heightened sensitivity to beauty.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“The things that we preceive as beautiful may be different, but the actual characteristics we ascribe to beautiful objects are similar. Think about it. When something strikes us as beautiful, it displays more presence and sharpness of shape and vividness of color, doesn't it? It stands out. It shines. It seems almost iridescent compared to the dullness of other objects less attractive.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“sudden, spontaneous eye contact is a sign that two people should talk.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
“When each expects the other to live in his or her world, to always be there to join in his or her chosen activities, an ego battle inevitably develops.”

“...the basic stuff of the universe, at its core, is looking like a kind of pure energy that is malleable to human intention and expectation in a way that defies our old mechanistic model of the universe--as though our expectation itself causes our energy to flow out into the world and affect other energy systems.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy

But how we respond to these encounters determines whether we’re able to receive the message. If we have a conversation with someone who crosses our path and we do not see a message pertaining to our current questions, it does not mean there was no message. It only means we missed it for some reason.”
James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
