I developed a passion for writing when I was seven years old. However, I had forgotten that aspiration as my parents helped me to get involved in other interests. At seventeen, I wanted to be a great musical artist. At eighteen, I became Sri Chinmoy’s ardent disciple as part of my journey to find peace and true happiness through self-improvement and meditation. I developed a strong interest to become an actor. Then pursued a career in graphic design. Then web development and computer programming. Finally, I renewed my interest in writing, and I have been working on my multi-volume memoir, The Struggle Within, for the past nine years.
Now aware of a secret, Jacob (later known as Arjuna) is better equipped to help his daughter. But how? A spiritual intervention sets him on a path guided by the Spirit. With his newfound strength and capacity, a new life dawns for him. Fueled with the Holy Spirit along with a lingering drug addiction mentality, he says and does things that cause him to appear crazy.
Jacob could never have made the transition from an anxious, abused teen to a young adult who was blooming out of his shell without the grace and guidance of his spiritual Master, Sri Chinmoy. But then everything changed. And now it seemed that the idea of an intervention from his family was impossible.
