In its simplest form it is an adventure experienced by a 'successful' business man who lives in the fast corporate world where succeeding is measured by the physical things one has acquired. This journey takes him to places some of us may only dream of seeing but it is not easy and the people he meets ask him to relinquish his much desired and fought for possessions and possibly even his way of life and the people who inhabit that life with him.
In its much deeper more profound form it is about reaching that point in life where something has to give but we don't know how or why we have that need. It is about trusting the intuition and gut feelings we have that take us away from the norm in order to experience the extraordinary. It is a rich story about awakening to the much bigger picture of love and joy that can only be found when we surrender and that can never be found in possessions.
This book has many layers but is about a spiritual awakening in a 'good' man which turns his life and that of his family on its head never to be the same again. It is heart warming and will give hope to many finding life difficult.
Thank you Jacob for your vision,trust and surrender.
Jacob's journey toward finding his light is an invitation or challenge to go on your own journey, to claim your own light. It is a tale that reminds us that life is short and that we are choosing the world we live in right now with each thought and each action we take. It is a story that reminds us that sometimes we have to let go of everything that we think we know to become the person we came to earth to be. Even though I've had my own awakening moments, Jacob's writing made me want to commit to living them on an even deeper level. Isn't that what we want a spiritual book to do?
"The Divine Arsonist" effectively pulls the reader into the story, the emotions are evident and raw, and the lessons are real. I would encourage everyone who reads this book to do so without any preconceived ideas about what it will be like or how it should be. The book explores some ideas and concepts that may not be familiar to everyone, but if you read it unassumingly, I believe you will benefit greatly from the experience. I know I did.
So many of us are caught up in a situation similar to Jacob with the "golden handcuffs" - scared to leave the rat race and almighty paycheck to live a life that feels simple, right and good. With everyone living in this illusion, it seems impossible that our society could ever change. But this book and my own internal compass tells me, a new shift in consciousness is not only possible, but it is coming. This book has inspired me, and I hope it will inspire others, to start walking the walk of their true humble desires and look within for answers. Thank you Jacob Nordby for sharing your story!
