Overview

Blessed Are the Weird: A Manifesto for Creatives by Jacob Nordby

The world wants its soul back…

In this book, author Jacob Nordby offers a bold new definition of success in the modern era.

“The only success now is living and creating a work-of-art life: unique, rich with meaning, naked of anything we don’t care about, and ruthless about carving out something absolutely real from a world that has gorged itself on fakeness and become critically ill from it. The only failure now is pulling back from that quest because of fear.”

Expanding upon his short original “Blessed Are the Weird” piece that became a viral phenomenon, he traces the roots of soulful artistry and creation to ancient times and back again to reveal the insistent, eternal quest of our true natures that demands something real—as if our very existence depends upon it.

This book is a call to creatives (and those who want to be) with the clear message that it has never been more critical to heed the call of soul than it is during this exciting, dangerous new renaissance epoch on Planet Earth.

Heartfelt and sometimes humorous, it lights a signal fire for all who feel out of place in the modern world and invites them to claim their heritage as members in an ancient lineage—those tenders of soul and beauty who have always kept the flame alive for humanity.

This is a book for everyone who wants to lead a deep, true, and passionate life and leave the world better for having passed this way.

Blessed Are the Weird. Your time has come to define the new normal.
