Finding your books that first time on that dusty bookshelf was like breathing in fresh air after emerging from a cave. I MEAN that. I went from stone-cold atheism to being a Jedi! I owe my peace and happiness to you guys!
I wish you could see who I was 6-7 years ago to who I’ve become now. Then you would only see what a change the Human Kindness Foundation has had on me. My family write about it and fellow inmates see it that I grew up or something is different about me. There has been a deep spiritual change in me. Thank you HKF.
With the help of your books and newsletters, I have come a long, long way in the past 13 years in prison – from a person filled with rage, hate, prejudice, lies, selfishness, and uncontrolled lust, to the person I am today – growing in love, peace, thoughtfulness, kindness and self control. May God bless you.
I’m sad that our Bo has passed on, yet truly grateful for all he shared. I’ve been almost 22 years on this life sentence. You guys carried me through the hard times. I’ve dedicated my life to tutoring, helping inmates get their G.E.D.s. My life is about improving my community; I know I can make a difference.
I had such dark thoughts. When I’d be mad at someone, I’d imagine… well… it’s bad. Now I imagine going to their house while they’re at work, and I plant a flower bed for them. I’ve gone to the library to look up what kinds of flowers to use, and I have the borders planned, and what colors I’ll plant together. I’m not even mad anymore. I want to bring beauty into their lives.
We’re All Doing Time changed my life. When I first read it, I was in and out of solitary confinement. Now it’s been a 100 degree transformation. This service has brought me a freedom I’d never known and an energy of reconciliation with my loved ones. My experiences have built upon me the motivation to be part of the healing process for others.
I don’t think I would have been able to find a belief in God had it not been for the meditation guide in Bo’s book. As my relationship with self and God has morphed it always comes back to the experience of meditating focusing on my heart chakra and the feeling as if my heart was the size of a thimble and a waterfall was being poured into it. Thus my first true evidence of God.
