An autobiography of sorts that explores the author's past lives in several historical time periods.
In his present life, Jaco (The Intuitive Warrior, 2010) is a retired Navy SEAL with an interest in past-life regression. He writes about his past incarnations, ranging from people in important positions in ancient Egypt to inhabitants of the lost continent of Atlantis, focusing not only on who he once was, but what he has learned. Whether sailing with the Argonauts or riding with the Knights of the Templar, he writes that his experiences taught him important lessons in spiritual fulfillment. He represents reincarnation not as a meaningless cycle but as a process for the advancement of one's soul and for realizing one's purpose in life: "The way I see it, realizing the divine purpose that is waiting to unfold within us and devotedly allowing that objective to evolve…is the most fulfilling aspect in life we can ever experience." Aware that many of his statements may seem far-fetched to skeptics, the author maintains a positive tone as he encourages readers to explore their own past life regressions. The fact that such encouragement comes from a former member of an elite military organization will certainly open concepts to readers who might not normally explore them. Whether readers will be interested in some of the more fantastical statements, such as that the pharaohs were "descendants of extraterrestrial races," will depend greatly on readers' own preconceptions. It's unlikely that skeptics will be persuaded that telepathy was a form of communication in the time of Siddhartha, for example, simply because the author says it was. Those who are interested in the ambiguous possibilities of ancient history, however, will find the book worthwhile.
A collection of one man's past-life experiences that will intrigue readers who believe that ancient history contains much more than we currently understand.
