The Love of a Master

The Love of a Master


The Book

What does it take to become a true Spiritual Warrior in these challenging times? “The Love of a Master” is an intimate memoir that reveals the joys, challenges, and triumphs of a young Hollywood actor who chose to devote 26 years to serving his remarkable teacher, mentor, and Wayshower, John-Roger, D.S.S., as a modern-day disciple.

Jesus Garcia’s life-changing journey launched soon after meeting “J-R”—an ordinary human being who held an extraordinary consciousness known as the Mystical Traveler and Preceptor for more than five decades until his passing in 2014 at age 80. As his initiate, personal assistant, bodyguard, and chauffeur, Garcia drove J-R across town, followed him around the globe, and was guided to delve deep into his own soul through chanting the sacred tones of God.

Dr. John-Roger’s wise, practical, and often humorous teachings have likewise touched thousands of people worldwide, through the Los Angeles-based Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness and dozens of books, including his best-selling Life 101 series and Spiritual Warrior. But beyond the lessons, at heart, this touching and inspiring true story is about the unconditional love and friendship between Garcia, his master John-Roger, and those who shared their spiritual path.
