Taking Hold: From Migrant Childhood to Columbia University
Francisco Jimenez's work comes alive with telling details about the warmth and resiliency of his immigrant family and the quest for identity against seemingly impossible odds.

Book Description

A former child star's comedic spiritual journey leading through Hell to Heaven. Following his divorce Cris looks for solace in all the wrong places but finally hits the Cosmic Jackpot!

His path to Enlightenment though is littered with hurdles such as Born Again Baptists, first dates from Hell, spastics (that's a legitimate use of the word), magic, mystery schools, supply teaching, death, God, ETs, the Mothman, and other assorted karma, dharma, and drama.

Cris is an explorer of psychic arenas, and a cosmonaut of inner space so join him if you dare but hang on to your Halo, the ride gets wild.

If you like to get higher than Leary and more surreal than Burroughs then you'll love this book. Feel free to join Cris, he'd love your company, yes you, but get ready for a brain scrape and a mind upgrade.

Review

Cris got the comedy itch when he co-wrote the Alien Television Workshop variety series which aired last millennium in Australia and also in England (he's getting old). His previous jobs weren't so glamorous and included picking out cigarette butts from hot tar and impersonating a Latino. He lives in Rockhampton and spends his time teaching, creating music with The Falling Echoes, an art rock band, running Stargate Activation Meditations and telling stories.

If, like myself, you're a bit light in the "spiritual enlightenment" area, you may find parts of this book a bit hard to believe. Having said that, it's entertainingly written and eventful as all hell...perhaps a little TOO eventful by the end, haha, but it's definitely more worthy of your time than the latest Michael Bay "blockbuster". I suspect a little "artistic license" has been employed here and there, perhaps partly to protect the innocent, but that all seems in keeping with the relatively light-hearted spirit of the whole exercise. It's certainly a wild and woolly journey into places where few dare to tread. Set forth with an open mind, and you just may enjoy.

Cris' second offering plumbs deeper than his first memoir "Bex, Drugs n Rock and Roll". This is Cris making sense of all his experience. He is fearless when describing raw emotion and no doubt his effort was cathartic. We, the reader, are invited to know his painful reality of unexpected divorce then partner him on a spiritual discovery of further enlightenment, and ultimately, a kind of healing. Cris describes fascinating parallel dimensions with the clarity and candour of one who if not personally experienced these sensations, then exhibits a magical imagination. The ultimate expression of this for me is Cris using a kaleidoscope of poetic language spun direct from his heart, in the chapter "Astral Ashram". We are challenged to experience these wonders for ourselves, Cris explains all we must do is start our own personal journey. A fascinating read, one which I would thoroughly recommend.... Five Stars...

I was taken for a mental, emotional and spiritual journey with Cristian.
The book was enthralling, funny, sad, poignant, but most of all interesting.
Cristian has obviously spent the best part of his life tracking down the mystical/spiritual 'gems' which lay hidden in plain sight. And with these 'gems', has risen like the Phoenix ready to live a full life again. In this book he passes on those gems to those that have the disposition and the will to learn.
I found this book to be like a "Hitchhikers Guide to the Spiritual Universe"
To those on the path of enlightenment or those who just want a good read. Or those who may be lost or a little aimless, in their journey, I thoroughly recommend this book.
In wrapping up , I found it refereshing for Cristian to strip bare, both his soul, and the hype surrounding Spiritual and Religious dogma, and to lay the gold at their centre, for my perusal.
