Bill,

 

I just want to say thank you for all the work that you have done to continue to bring your brother’s work to the world.

 

This last June my brother-in-law (my wife's brother) broke his neck in a diving accident. It has been a long, and will continue to be a long recovery for him. Through the process I have watched family members go through extremes of emotional pain and sorrow. 

 

For myself, who began reading the work of your brother in 2009, have found a tremendous peace. I find myself being very capable of helping my brother-in-law, as well as other family members deal with the difficulties that have presented themselves. I have been extremely effective in being a steady rock for my wife, my brother-in-law, his wife, and the rest of the family. In following your brother’s teachings I have discovered the deep seeded joy he discussed.

 

I have found that being a Christian is a completely different path than what I was raised in. Your brother’s discoveries and sharing of these discoveries have made my life deeper and more meaningful than i could have ever possibly imagined.

 

So yes I have received the copy of Swansong and have found it to be a delight! In fact, I will be ordering a second copy for my brother. He and I have shared many, many discussions about the work of Tony. My own feelings are that Tony was capable of reading and discovering for himself the Truth that so many mystics of the East and West have found. But he made it possible for me to discover them for myself by bringing them to the present day, and in the present vernacular, in the language that I can understand. 'Thank you' cannot begin to describe how much I appreciate what you have done to continue to make his work available for all of us. Please don’t stop!

 

A friend across the globe,

 

Dan

Dear Bill,

Thank you so much for your personal e-mail confirming my purchase.

What an honour it is for me to be writing directly to Fr Tony’s brother!! And what joy it is to see your efforts to keep his work alive and spread new material, hence my interest in Swansong.

I have bought all known published works by and about your brother and they are my most prized books (I even bought the same books twice because they had different titles for the US and the rest of the world, silly me).

I also enjoyed immensely your very well written biography Happy Wanderer. Thank you.

I do not wish to bore you with too long an e-mail but I’d like to tell you that I came across your brother’s life work through a reference in one of Wayne Dyer’s works. Wayne Dyer being impressed by a Jesuit? This I had to explore. I saw Fr Tony for the first time on YouTube and I was hooked for life. This man was special. He spoke in a way I had never heard before, and believe me here in Malta we are full of Catholic priests and churches - I myself was brought up in Catholic schools and come from a Catholic family. But no one spoke about religion, spirituality and the human condition like Fr Tony. He was a true mystic. He truly understood things that ordinary mortals find hard to grasp.

On a personal note, despite my years of listening to him, watching him on video (Awareness CDs, Rediscovery of Life, A Way to God for Today and Wake Up) and reading his works, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, continually finding new insights in what he says, I still haven’t tasted the anand that special persons like your brother derive from the unknowable. Perhaps my shell is particularly hard to crack or, as he says in one of his humorous asides, I like living in a cesspool, just don’t make waves please.

Please do continue shedding Fr Tony’s light on this troubled world with any new material you encounter.

With utmost respect and love to you and your family,

Franco,

1/8
