Never as Expected

One of the implicit principles of the storyline is illustrated in the last excerpt. Nothing is as it seems or as expected. Pitcairn’s experience is consistently one of seeing the world and all its circumstances through different eyes.

While the story is one of redemption, it is simultaneously a transformation tale. And transformation comes about by seeing differently. Transformation is rarely an external phenomenon, rather it comes about through altered perception.

One of the more interesting aspects of Pitcairn’s experience is this constant theme of inner change. It is the source of much of his discomfort, and yet it plays true to life in that growth and development are always unfolding. All things are in fact evolving even when they appear to be static. And they are typically a source of disquiet though we may not be aware of it.

Once again the biographical aspects of the book are not lost on me. This too is my story, my reality, and my experience.
