Yet another wonderful book from Richard, wherein he continues his personal journey through the maze of Consciousness, exploring places we fear to go in his unique way. Richard's companion for this cross country trek is a SeaRey (an amphibious plane) called 'Puff' who is as fascinating as Donald Shimoda in 'Illusions', a seagull in 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull', Dickie in 'Running from safety' and Laura Bristol in 'Out of My Mind' … all powerful and wise egos (and there are many more). Puff tells Richard; “I'm the cloud that's almost here, almost gone. I'm the wistful melody, known but half-remembered, calling you higher. I'm the wisp in the air no one sees but you, dear pilot. I'm the life no one else believes is true.” If you've ever wondered what life is really about, allow Richard to gently show you some of it's wonderful possibilities and from there, if you're willing … fly higher than you believe possible.
Chapter 19 states “One needs to know what one's airplane will do and what she won't. That means becoming one's own test pilot, when what one needs to know isn't printed.” What a wonderful philosophy for life!
Richard wasn't kidding when he subtitled his book 'A Gentle Game of Life and Death' - I'd say it was an accurate assessment of his journey.
A must buy book.
