The reason that this book is timely and needed is that it outlines globally, how people with a different degree of mental illnesses, especially schizophrenia- a unique disorder that causes one to have difficulty understanding reality- seem to carry the chemical gene that declares how a children’s story, The Little Soul and the Sun by Neale Donald Walsch has been brought to life.
However, the total explanation of the author’s perspective seems difficult to comprehend and the side effects manifested as a result of having an illness can be devastating on those afflicted. Their afflictions demonstrate on a higher level of awareness the dual existence of the fantasy-like story and reality.
It is the author’s objective to somehow bridge the gap of understanding the symptoms of schizophrenia and other mental disorders as an “insightful awareness” versus a “neurological disease.”
Most self-help books are quite cliché , if not condescending in their approach, and my story attempts to over reach these boundaries by:
· Illustrating the connection between the facts of life and a fictional story The Little Soul and the Sun.
· Bringing a proposed cure for seeing how mental illness can be viewed to benefit mankind.
There are many books out there on the topic of mental health, sci-fi, and/or spirituality, but none of them combine the personal touch of an author who sees himself and those around him, as angels who are “perfectly imperfect”.
The proposed book goes beyond its conventional purpose to possibly be the most revolutionary concept of its time.
