Where the manmade world is viewed from an unusual
Welcome to Sanity
"Sometimes I wonder
if the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles

"This world is insane!" Have you ever thought that?

do some productive and satisfying work,
and enjoy serenity or "peace of mind."
The world seems at complete odds with this, and you wonder,
"What's going on here? Isn't there more to life than this? What can I do?"
You can, with a bit of effort, reside at Sanity Island.
Where is that? It is nowhere and everywhere--it is within.
Sanity Islanders have a different purpose of living than what we mostly see.
Lots of people have made the effort, with a little assistance from a friend
or two, and transformed their perspective,
realizing that the outer world
is but a reflection of the inner; that when the conflict within is first
understood, then reevaluated, serenity and sanity CAN be The Way
of Life. (And knowing that not until enough people stop their internal
warfare will there be peace on earth."
Sanity Island is The Way.
