"The five books that changed my life" Woman
From the Inside Flap
In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar....
In Illusions, the unforgettable follow-up to his phenomenal bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that give our souls wings: that people don't need airplanes to soar...that even the darkest clouds have meaning once we lift ourselves above them... and that messiahs can be found in the unlikeliest places--like hay fields, one-traffic-light midwestern towns, and most of all, deep within ourselves. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

A friend recommended me this book after we had a short discussion about living the life and getting tuned in with what IS. I have to say I'm thankful he did that.
I've had some difficulties with getting through some pages (probably because of the writing style the author chose) but at the end I think I got the point. And I already know I will come back to this reading again... and again.
This book could be just a simple story of two people who met by accident and had some adventures together... It could also annoy and irritate some individuals deep in their believes... But it can also show/prove/confirm that we are "ALL" from the moment we're born, the happiness and bliss is within us from the very beginning and it's only individual's choice of how they will live their life... You can find the cues to finding the meaning of it on every step you make though. Use them or lose them.
You will find this book interesting regardless your final thoughts.
I would not inflict this small of type on anyone -- not even my 18 year old nephew who has perfect vision! I'm returning it for another version, because even a great book, which this is, needs to be able to be READ WITHOUT A MAGNIFYING GLASS!
I chose to read "Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" again because I'm planning to read "Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Student." I not only recommend this book, I highly recommend it.
This book makes us go deep in ourselves, the twists and surprises drive us into a steady flow of understanding of complex aspects but in a very accessible language. So many words of wisdom, "You teach best what you most need to learn", and "You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it however". The book took me into a searching voyage for the messiah in myself.
