About the Book

This book is about the perils and pitfalls of the busy mind. Busyness not only challenges our mental and physical health; there are also the subliminal messages that come hidden within the concession to the demands of busyness. This book asks the reader to view the whirl going on in the world today as though it were a stage set, and you are the director as well as one of the actors in the drama. The stage set device is a way to get a fresh and, hopefully, a refreshing perspective on the whirligig merry-go-round that is the busy whirl happening on the world stage today. The movement of the book takes the reader from an unreflective absorption in the whirl of time to a standpoint of spacious clarity, a place that allows one to see clearly what is really going on.
