Author's note:

Hello and Welcome;

Thank you for taking the time to read about my story of how I healed my life by forgiving my father. When I got the call that he was dying, I acted on an impulse; an urgent need to see him engulfed me and I fled to his bedside without a second thought. Some say that was a rash decision to make but it is the best decision that I have ever made. At the time, I didnít care what he did or didnít do: I needed to see him so I could escape from my self-imposed prison of resentment and pride. I needed to see my father for me and me alone. You see, deep down, I knew that something felt wrong in my life but I just couldnít quite put my finger on it; I knew that I wasnít happy but where was the elusive happiness that I was craving? I always seemed to be watching others experience joy but it was always passing me by. I always felt hollow somehow.

Six months on from meeting my dying father, I can truly say I am a complete human being. I am happy now - no longer searching aimlessly for contentment - I have it right here in my heart and you can too. This feeling could have been mine all along if I had just entertained the concept of forgiveness many years ago but I decided to hold on to the anger, the hurt and the pain like a fool. And how I suffered! The book that I have written about my personal experience is yet to be published. Please read through the first chapter in the link below and e-mail me with your comments to If you would like a copy of the book, it is now available as an e-book for £9.99. Read my story and perhaps you will see the futility of your own negative emotions! Read my book and set yourself free!

If everyone forgave each other, the world could be like Heaven Ė think about that for a minute - we could live in a perfect world if we all uproot hatred from our hearts and sow seeds of love. Letís all heal together and make the world a better place!
