Jamaica 1971

Recognized at the age of six as a spiritual teacher by destitute villagers in Jamaica, Bobby Clancy, is haunted by the feeling that something was missing, that there was more for him to discover. He embarks upon a spiritual odyssey into the realms of darkness and light and love and betrayal, where he encounters inner tests and shocking revelations toward a final confrontation that would deliver or destroy him. Along the way, he encounters remarkable characters as he begins to explore the nature of reality and self, who opens him up to a world of insight, inspiration, synchronicity, and compassion. A pool man who saves his life, a woman battling cancer who can run again and the kindness within a man likened to Frankenstein by the school children, to name a few. But, after several life-changing experiences, including facing his death, two neighborhood girls disfigured by a drunk driver, the loss of two close friends, and the unraveling of the relationship with his first love, Bobby spirals out of control. At nineteen, facing a crisis of faith and self-worth, and in a deep depression, an extraordinary divine encounter with an angel unfolds, giving him a new perspective of his life’s promise and potential. Through this celestial meeting, Bobby discovers his real purpose and how to share a message of hope and love with millions around the world.

“For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee.”
—Luke 4:10

Act I

The story begins with the Clancy family embarking on their first significant vacation to Jamaica. Bobby, the youngest sibling, encounters a kindred spirit named ‘Alex The Pool Man’ who ends up not only saving his life twice during his stay but also recognizes Bobby as a special soul. Act I culminates with a beautiful traditional Christian-based Jamaican ceremony where they welcome Bobby to their impoverished village and honor him as a spiritual leader.

The second part of the story takes you to Bobby’s neighborhood, a melting pot of middle-class suburban upstate New York, where Bobby first surrenders to God at a moment when he nearly drowns. During this pivotal time in his life, he learns the lessons of compassion and prejudgment. His first encounter is with a neighborhood woman who is battling cancer. An inspiring moment of hope unfolds between the two during a race around their block. The second encounter is with Jim the Janitor, a tall, lanky imposing character who is likened to the Frankenstein monster by the school children. Bobby and Jim are thrust together, where Bobby discovers Jim’s true nature.

After a terrible car accident with a drunk driver disfigures two of the neighborhood girls, Bobby learns the power of forgiveness and the true definition of inner-beauty when the girls return to the neighborhood after several months in an intensive care burn unit.

As a teen, Bobby’s life is now dominated by car fumes, perfume, and rock music. His first serious relationship unfolds as he enters his senior year in high school. His world quickly unravels after the sudden deaths of two childhood friends and devastating breakup. He spirals into a deep depression at age nineteen that takes him to the brink of death. Facing a crisis of faith and self-worth, an extraordinary divine encounter with an angel unfolds in the wake of his first experience with prayerful meditation that leaves him and the world profoundly changed.
