Bipolar Sagacity Volume 3 continues on with the theme of the first book Bipolar Sagacity. It underscores the profound bipolar spiritual, psychological and social struggles a person of introspection experiences as he/she travels throughout the stages of the adult life cycle. This life, both past and present, witnesses to the fact that many people of astute perceptual skills, religious faith and intellectual knowledge live lives of great contradictions—those bipolar experiences that challenge the very essence of sanity. Yet in truth, the commentary in this book—whether ruminations, lamentations, exhortations, questions, sayings, or aphorisms—encapsulates what it means to be human as a cognizant and vibrant living adult, whether as celebrated through supplications, acknowledgment of thanks, discovered truths or founded wisdom, or by experiencing all the human fallibilities and negative perceptions associated with powerful emotional states such as confusion, fear, anger, jealousy, etc.
