Richard Bach Books & Interviews

May 24, 2017

I was reading one of the Abraham Hicks books and in the intro, Jerry Hicks talks about discovering a book called Illusions by Richard Bach and being blown away by it. This was before his and Esther’s Abraham days.

I had an old used copy of that book lying around and I gave it a whirl. Wow, I was blown away too!!

It’s a spiritual short story about a freedom-loving pilot who meets a spiritual master.

The cool thing is that the book is about things like law of attraction, your thoughts create your reality, how all of life is an illusion, how to play the game of life, manifesting your reality, and things like that. You know, the basic spiritual stuff we all know by now. But the catch is that the book was published way back in 1977!

How did he know all this back then?!

So then I read his first book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, which was even better, published in 1970. This short story is about an outcast seagull trying to live life to his fullest while other traditionalists scorn his ways. The seagull also learns the mystical ways of the world through his travels.

These books are big hits but also have a cult-like following, of which I’m now a part. So, I’ll link to those two books along with a bunch of interviews that I found. Well worth the read and listen.
