In this sequel to the novel Desert Journey, Jerry Burgener continues studying the spiritual lessons provided by his American Indian spirit guide, Tom, as he chronicles his incredible journey to understand life and relationships and why we choose one lover over another.
Again basing his story on true events, Jerry returns to Tom’s mountain retreat near Apache Junction, Arizona, expecting sympathy and understanding from Tom when he relays that his fiancé has cheated on him with an ex-boyfriend. Instead, Tom calmly states, “Everything is perfect and as it should be.” Jerry soon realizes he has to relearn many lessons Tom taught him on the very same mountaintop a year earlier and then must achieve a whole new level of understanding in order to find inner peace. As Jerry struggles to comprehend his need to constantly be immersed in a relationship, Tom challenges him to find his place in the universe and uses past life regression to help Jerry understand how his actions provide consequences beyond his current life.
Superstition Mountain provides a perfect backdrop as Tom continues his spiritual I pilgrimage to find the key to true happiness.
The first thing I noticed upon reading these books was that the author and I really had a lot in common so I was very eager to read what he had to write. And let me say, I was quite surprised by his writing and his experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dr. Burgener’s books and was able to relate them to my own issues (my anxiety per se!). I even attempted to do one of his first homework assignments – staying in the here and now – in the first book and found it just as difficult as he writes! The second book was just as good at showing different lessons – learning forgiveness.
I certainly am one reader who is glad Tom made Dr. Burgener write his experiences as they occurred because I believe there are good lessons to be learned by everyone!
