About the Author
Richard was born in London in 1955 and has lived a very topsy turvey life. "I left school at 15 with no qualifications, and had I not left voluntarily, I would have been asked to leave. I always felt that I didn't fit in anywhere, and as a result, by the time I reached the age of 17 I'd had 24 jobs". He joined the army in 1976 hoping that it would give him a purpose in life but instead he became even more disillusioned and turned to alcohol. "I hated the army because I found it to be such a hypocritical organisation and as soon as I was eligible I bought myself out". Whilst in the military however, Richard did enjoy his experiences in Germany and in 1980 went back there to work, staying for six years. "My heavy drinking continued during my time in Germany and by the time I returned to the UK in 1986 I was heading down into a deep depression. I managed to haul myself out of it in the mid-to-late 1990's but my life hit an all time low in 2000". Richard found his spiritual pathway and started to turn his life around in early 2001. He now lives in Gloucestershire and is a successful medium, healer and spiritually inspired artist. He is also the author of ten spiritual publications and has produced five meditation CDs and three CDs of mantra chanting. Richard is a workshop facilitator in various spiritual topics and also gives profound interpretations of dreams. www.richardfholmes.org

"The Amazing Journey" is an inspirational tale of a real-life man's journey into an enlightened life.
In reviewing this book I found myself challenged also; as I dont feel that I have read a book but that I have listened to the Authors gentle, sometimes pained and sometimes humorous voice and been guided to Prasanthi, India to see 'A Little Indian Man with Fuzzy Hair'. You cannot fail to be in absolute awe of one who gives so freely and evidently touches all who turn to him with such a powerful all encompassing love.
Richard was dragged to the depths of exhaustion both mentally and physically and each time he felt he could no longer bare it, he would be embraced by a sign from the fuzzy haired little Indian man, Sai Baba. Thus serving to reinvigorate his mind and body with such a feeling of warmth, that Richard would find himself smiling wildly or even laughing. It was here that I battled with such belief, surely we all sink to such levels and we either pick ourselves up and carry on, or give up on life? And maybe we see the signs that we want too when we reach such levels? But read on because to get to one's destination you have to travel the whole way and the balance Richard talks about; of 'pain to feel love' will suddenly make sense. For years I had felt the pain of each hurdle and had risen up and carried on but felt no love. The reason I had not felt the love is explained quite simply in Sai Baba's Surrender Prayer (Pg 132) 'Never think: How is this going to end? What is going to happen? If you give into this temptation, you demonstrate that you do not trust Me?" And its in these words that I realised that my own lack of trust in others had led me to an existence that was often painful yet offered little rewards; little love.
There were occasions when during his weakest moments Richard would find himself at the mercy of many an unlikely character whom upon sensing his distress would go out of their way to assist him and it is here we are sent a valuable message that we should all adhere to; 'Never judge a book by its cover!' And in the case of it being Richards book, you dont need to be spiritually focused to wise up and to realise that in continuing to close the doors to others and safe-guarding your own interests, you limit yourself to feeling the loneliness of pain and experiencing little joy...
To sum up: Do yourself a favour go on a literal journey with Richard Holmes...
