In this teaching fable, mega-author, Richard Bach returns to his main themes: love of flight and a profound interest in metaphysics. In the course of this slim volume, Bach tells the story of a -nsense veteran pilot, James Forbes, and his encounters with a woman named Maria trapped in a plane without a pilot, a flamboyant hyptist and the hyptist's deceased wife. Like his previous books, the story is a vehicle to explore various spiritual and philosophical issues. In a sense, Bach asserts, our world is a result of one hyptic suggestion after ather and the secret of a meaningful life is learning to control those suggestions. This is what Bach says about the significance of this work: We've had the power all along to change our hallucinations and therefore the real world! This power has been kwn by many labels: Positive Thinking, The Law of Attraction, The Secret ...We do t create our own reality, it suggests, we create our own appearances, and this book shows how every one of us does it, and has done it, every day of our lives. While it mines the same territory as The Secret, Bach's book is far richer, raising provocative questions and striking the perfect balance, providing answers without implying that they are the only - or necessarily the right - ones.
