The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield

An interesting if a bit hocus-pocus-y read. Anyone familiar with Eastern religion and Philosophy would recognise many of the Key Ideas or insights.
He made it into an Indiana-Jones type story but seemed a bit undecided about the 'Love/Sex' interest. Bearing in mind that the book was first published in 1994, I was impressed that there was a fairly strong environmental message about the relation of Virgin forests and mountains to humans. It may be coincidental that in a short time I will be experiencing just that- which is exactly the first insight- coincidences.  I thought the first insight would make those suffering from Paranoia feel justified so at least one group of people would be happy!
The attempt of the Catholic Church to prevent the publishing of the last Insight eeriely echoed the attempts of the early Church to suppress the Gospels of Mary Magdalene, Judas and Thomas - a documentary I saw a couple of weeks ago:
