The Universe says that it’s cool for me to interrupt your regularly scheduled inspirations to tell you about another voice, a storyteller and his story.
Jacob Nordby is a fine new voice from the Universe, from inside you and me. Unlike me, though, he can really spin a fine yarn of an allegory to illustrate his own internal and external transformation.
Yeah, yeah, you say; everyone’s got a transformation story with energy healing sessions, forgiveness for their personal shadows, vision quests, and feeling the Light. True. So, why read Jacob’s version?
Because it’s such a great ride! I’ve had my energy sessions where I felt the light, where I stood before a mirror and forgave myself, where I caught a glimpse of Who I Really Am, but the characters in my story weren’t nearly as fascinating as mountain man Jack, one of the many extremely aware and down-to-earth people from Nordby’s tale.
Jacob doesn’t just tell us how wondrous it is to be connected to All That Is or to have an out-of-body experience; he reminds us that we all begin from a place of both courage and fear, constantly wondering if we’re crazy or enlightened as our souls take us on a rollercoaster ride through change. And I mean real change.
This is so cool! I have to be careful because of…spoilers!! A spiritual transformation story that’s so well written as a dramatic tale that if I say too much, I’ll spoil it for you. It’s a weird feeling, that. I want to tell you about all the wonderful and strange and downright ugly (and wise) characters that Jacob’s protagonist meets in his journey to Himself, about everything he has to let go of, but…spoilers!! You really must meet these folks that people Jacob’s world yourself.
Every chapter’s end left me wanting more. This is the sign of an excellent storyteller. The rich and concise descriptions and dramatic movement will make you forget you are reading, pull you into the mountains and allow you to meet Jacob’s spiritual mentors yourself.
Read this book (get it here) if for no other reason than the pleasure of a great story. Come away from it with the courage to step into your own journey with your soul.
