Book No. 51

Title: Illusions
Author: Richard Bach
Publisher: Arrow Books Ltd

Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers.

主人公 Richard(作者)は、ある日Donald Shimodaという同業者(瘋癲のパイロット&スピリチュアル・マスター)に出会い、
”Messiah’s Handbook” Reminders for the Advanced Soul を譲りうける。



"The Lake House"という映画で、キアヌ・リーブス演じるAlexが、お父さんの建てたレイクハウスをこう表現するシーンがある。
"Containment and control. This house is about ownership, not connection." リチャード・バック及び彼の作品で時々思うのがこの台詞。彼はもともとパイロットであるだけに、良い意味でも悪い実でも思考も視点も人間的でないというか。

"Argue with your limitations and sure enough they're yours."
"Every person, all the events of your life, are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.

本の中でRichardがDonald Shimodaから譲りうける本そのものも出版されている。
Messiah's Handbook
"If it's never your fault, you can't take responsibility for it. If you can't take responsibility for it, you'll always be its victim."

"Life tells you nothing, it shows you everything."
