Hi Joseph,

I just wanted to thank you for sharing with me your very thoughtful words in your new book. I've always valued a piece of work that inspires others to look inside themselves for their own voice, awakening or mobilizing their own intentions, so your writing has been very meaningful to me. I especially appreciated its ability to both ground me and lift me up to dream. I folded the corners of each page that really resonated within me, only to find that I marked most of the pages!

Dear Joseph,

[Your book] is an extraordinary work that is so clearly inspired. I know this because it takes me to a nameless, formless place within me that resonates quietly as I read and ponder. I must admit that I am spell bound by the notion that "Behind every feeling of fear is a seed of love." That is germinating in me deeply as it resonates with my own conviction about the essence of transformation as the release of fear into love. But to honour fear as the genesis and teacher - this is a new and compelling direction for me to move. Thank you again for the gift of this new insight.

Hi Joseph,

...I wanted to say that sometimes I find a books so precious, like a beautiful piece of art, and I so cherish it. I have had some of these books in my life, and, that is what your book is. I take a long time reading them, so slowly so that it is part of my life for a long long time. It is beautiful, and I can see the work that has gone into it. ... Congratulations on its creation, and thank you for this gift to all of us.

Such Beauty

Your book is wonderful, every time I open it, I feel as though I am sitting beside a warm fire place with a wise old friend and we are sharing our lives.

I can’t read more than one quote or one page per day. There’s too much in it.

Simply Spirit is so beautifully written. It is real and down to earth, and that’s what I love about it. I keep it by my desk at my office and if I ever need inspiration, I open the book – it doesn’t matter what page I land on, I read the quote, I think about it, it fills me up and I’m good to go.

I have just finished my first read, of many, cover to cover, with a glass of peppermint tea. I have a feeling that this book may accompany me on my journey for years to come. Through my first read, I smiled, I laughed, I teared, I enjoyed.

In my deepest and darkest hours, during the wee hours at the times where I feel most alone, I read this book. It brings me comfort when no one or nothing else can. I am living with cancer, and this book sometimes feels like my only friend.
