With the grace and elegance that occurs only in profound communion with divine spirit, Jack Armstrong is an eloquent communicator of his explorations within the spiritual realm, few of us have even considered, much less explored fully. Lessons from the Source reflects a source of wisdom that explains the deeper truths of our lives. It offers simple down-to-earth, yet powerful lessons about life and spirituality, posing a revitalizing perspective about our life on earth.
It is an absolute message about the vital force flowing within us and without us. It is about becoming aware of the negative, self-doubting and criticism in each of us that is projected outward daily. Before anything else, it’s about how to transform that negativity into a “positive” way of being, or comparably, a joy of Being.
As a intuitive healing arts practitioner and author with a 14 year private practice, I found Jacks book to be of immeasurable support and comfort to my clients and friends as they struggle to make spiritual sense of the intense suffering that sometimes accompanies life challenges. The insights gained through Lessons from the Source, shine a light of gentle, compassionate clarity and understanding to situations that could otherwise be harshly judged.
Also, like many, I have read spirituality-related material written by authors such as Gregg Braden, Judith Orloff, Ken Wilber, Doreen Virtue, Byron Katie, and Sonia Choquette. All outstanding authors, indeed. But after reading Lessons from the Source, I noticed that a subtle shift had taken place within me. I was able to distinguish and internalize the lessons in a way that was effortless; I felt and “knew” Jack’s guidance on an internal level, rather than just as an external idea to be discussed. Another sharp departure this book takes from others like it, is that Mr. Armstrong has written it without the ego that frequently accompanies spiritual teachings.
Why me? It is a question so often thought, cried, and asked by many. Blame is placed on higher powers as surely as emotion is felt. Isn’t it possible though, that our trials and tribulations, our painful experiences, are full of purpose? What if an author would share with you that your own soul actually planned for these things to happen? That there is indeed a reason for it all? If there have been simply too many “coincidences” in your life for them to be random, discover this book. It will help you believe in yourself and in the greater goodness and everlasting nature of all life.
If you feel inclined to read this book, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Excellent all the way to the end. Bravo, and Thank You, JACK, for courageously and eloquently presenting these delicately touching stories and insights. Thank you for giving us all the freedom to expand, accept, love ourselves more, and grow grow grow. Simply, Thank You!
