Justin Time

Autobiographical Stories
from an American Spiritual Master

Apr 27, 2017


Even before the first page of Justin Time: Autobiographical Stories from an American Spiritual Master, J. Jaye Gold’s preface takes us on a multidimensional adventure. In a chronological as well as physical sense, he transports us to an eclectic assortment of settings from his unique life, or should I say lives. Brought up in a multi-ethnic, multi-religious immigrant family in the Bronx, this street-wise kid begins as a New York hustler and goes on to travel in Afghanistan, Peru, and Algeria. His colorful and unpredictable trajectory leads him to becoming a philosophic “student of life” and eventual spiritual master.

Gold’s straightforward, almost conversational tone and wry sense of humor are incorporated in his delivery of myriad stories from his extraordinary past. On the other end of the spectrum, Gold the spiritual teacher eloquently offers original and profound wisdom that reads like poetry. In this way, Justin Time defies categorization. It’s not memoir, it’s not self-help; it’s philosophic, but down-to-earth.

Gold uses his entertaining tales as a device to challenge his readers to reexamine their own lives. While his perspectives offer a fresh take on situations we thought we had already figured out, he often poses questions that challenge the assumptions and conclusions we have settled for. If you’re looking to stretch your mind, expand your potential points of view, and experience new territory in your own thinking and emotions, this book could be a catalyst for that exploration.
