After deciding to eschew the world of music, the author relocates to New York and fortuitously joins the NFL's New York Jets. Again, without any experience whatsoever in filming or film editing, the author ultimately becomes the Film Director for the Jets and, after 27 years with the Jets, he retires as one of the tops in his field. Again, as the author takes the reader behind the scenes of an NFL team, he continues to courageously recount his struggles with aberrant behavior and addiction.
Interspersed throughout "Hard Core Love" is the author's ongoing search for a clarity in his life, spiritual or otherwise, that will ultimately allow him to escape the clutches of temptation and addiction and to enjoy a life with his family where they are all, to quote from a hit song from the Turtles, "Happy Together."
But some of us quest more. Some look deeper and deeper into the turmoil of this world, Jim Pons is one.
He lived a life that made him feel God was always helping. But he felt he was not reaching God with his actions. Then one day he met Nothingness head on. And suddenly, he had a revelation that he was within God, that God was with him, that he was a part of the whole universe and at last, the behavior he so wanted to be stopped, stopped.
The book is moving, it is a story of excitement and wonderment, but its greater thrust is the author’s dedication to find God. Even an atheist’s heart will ring out for Jim and his quest. Jim Pons is coming to Hawaii for an autograph sessions May 12th 2018 at Idea's Music and Books kakaako, inHonolulu. He sent me his book ahead of time. This is what I thought of it. Somethin' important. Somethin' worth a read. Somethin
to break a few tears over.
