Thirty years ago, Jack Armstrong began receiving a series of simple and Practical life lessons from an unknown inner source. In Lessons from the Source: A Spiritual Guidebook for Navigating Life's Journey, he shares those teachings for the first time.
Written in simple, easy-to-understand language, this spiritual guidebook offers a refreshing new perspective on spirituality and on issues we struggle with regularly: the nature of life's journey, the challenges we face, ways to overcome those challenges, and opportunities to make the journey more enjoyable.
Like Conversations with God and A Course in Miracles, the insights found in Lessons from the Source reflect a source of wisdom that sheds light on the deeper truths of our life on earth.
Jack Armstrong is an explorer on the spiritual path whose life's journey has included stops as a nonprofit executive, Peace Corps volunteer, congressional candidate, small business owner, voiceover artist and hospice volunteer. He lives in Portland, Oregon, and strives to practice the lessons he shares in the book.
Quotes from Lessons from the Source: A Spiritual Guidebook for Navigating Life's Journey:
"What are the factors that disturb your peace of mind and heart? They are factors that you have given the power to do so. In and of themselves, these people or conditions or circumstances have no power over you - unless you grant it to them."
"Know that your good is always there for you. Only you can block it. If you stake your claim to it in a natural way and then accept it comfortably, it will manifest for you. It is very important that you not concern yourself with what or how or when. Simply accept your good and rest comfortably. If you begin to worry about specific outcomes, you will attempt to impose your own will on the process, which is counterproductive."
"Remember the impact pure joy can have on the world - and on you. It is like lighting a brush fire and watching it spread almost instantly. It creates an instant soul connection with others who experience it, and it allows them to experience it as well. Can there be any greater gift to the world? Could any be more delightful to give?"
