Question description

One reviewer wrote the following commentary on Richard Bach's Illusions: "Are we so busy “knowing” that our failures to feel or to pay any attention to our intuition keeps us from achieving all that we could? Does our focus on the material—both our physical selves and the tangible world around us— keep us from seeing the illusions it presents, and keep us from knowing our deeper, spiritual nature?"

By most accounts Illusions serves as a novel to bridge Eastern and Western ideologies as we follow two men on a personal spiritual quest to discover the proverbial meaning of life. Throughout their journey there is a constant theme that the universe provides gifts, but work must be done for those gifts to reach their full potential. Bach writes: "You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however."

In an essay (1000 words minimum) discuss how the mystical spiritual journeys of both characters reflects a blending of Eastern and Western philosophies. Please use specific examples that reflect the totality of the text. Reference how the battles within their minds impacts their ability to more quickly reach their potential.
