We all know what we are supposed to do with our lives in general:  achieve success, work hard, obey the law, honor our responsibilities and commitments, etc..  But in our society, most of us are not really given the answer to how to get there and how to define this often elusive success for ourselves.  What about personal happiness and a sense of purpose?  How do you come to define who you are and what gives you that sense of purpose and fulfillment?  David Banner undertook a long, winding and often arduous journey within himself and successfully found his answer.  We are fortunate that he chose to share this personal journal with us, and give us a blueprint for our own search for purpose and fulfillment. 

A buzzword in the business world now is "paradigm".  The concept of paradigm is a set of beliefs or mental models that limit what you can see, and limit your area  of experience and reference to what you do see.  If you can't see it, you don't know it's there.  Similar to looking out a standard window; you are limited to a specific viewing region.  What you see out that single window is limited, but what you see out a bay window is a larger view with more dimensions.  Actually step outdoors instead, and your view is greatly increased and clearer, with more available directions to look, and no restrictions by the frame of the window to block your view.  It's a bigger frame on the picture, so to speak that adds to your view, thus the title of this outstanding work, "Frame Shifting".

Step by step and with detailed instructions and thorough explanation, Banner covers subjects that include ego, the development of the ego, the laws of attraction, empathy, attunement, emotion, roleplaying, vision, God, spirituality and more.  I especially appreciated the fact that while written with a view of God and spirituality, it doesn't endorse or embrace any particular dogma or doctrine.  This makes the book applicable to such a wide range of people and the various life experiences and beliefs they may hold.  It would indeed be a pity for a book this well written to exclude anyone.  The number of people searching for just this kind of guidance is huge, and it's great approach and innovative view is a welcome addition to the current available studies in philosophy. 

I would heartily recommend this book without reservation.  It offers a rare clarity into the journey of human existence and personal fufillment.  I hope it garners the attention it deserves.
