"I really don't understand how Samuel's writing makes me feel like this. The first time I encountered him was through the 2+2=Reality pamphlet. I'm smiling with the memory of it. This feeling is so warm, fuzzy and bubbly and silly! Somehow it shines through. The Child Samuel speaks of is somehow alive between the lines of his writing. Much of it is good writing, although some of it is all over the place and even convoluted at times. But this doesn't matter at all. Samuel's writing unties all my knots. If I stick with it, the effect diminishes, and I have to admit this feeling is not really "on tap" for me. It's not something that is at my disposal. But go a couple months without looking at Samuel's writing, and come back to it, and there it is again! No other book of this type -- books for seekers -- have done this for me, at least not to this extent. And Samuel himself is aware of it, amazingly. Again and again he reminds the reader to read from the Heart, to squint at the words, to jiggle them around until you know their essence as your own. But again, how is it possible for someone to write this way? "
“It is a moment of relief from the world’s heaviness. It is an instant of recognition, a weightless surveillance of the scene. It is a flawless moment that lets us say ‘Hey, this is a fine minute, I feel alright!’ That’s it. The goodness and lightness are it. It’s no big event to the intellect. Yet its recognition and acknowledgement is the most brimming understanding anyone will ever acquire— and the heart knows this is so. Suddenly everything is a all right.” -William Samuel

I recently came into contact with the writings of an American 'hidden one' who as I discovered is not hidden at all. I speak of William Samuel. I just completed my first reading of 'Awareness and Tranquility' ...absolutely riveting! William Samuel, as I discovered, sat with Ramana Maharshi in 1942, the first American to do so. For those interested in unadulterated, 'core-splitting honest' non-duality, Samuel's work ranks as some of the best I have encountered. I'd like to thank Sandy Jones for her stewardship of Samuel's work, and our wonderful conversations. I strongly suggest that those seriously interested in 'ALL-ness', spend some quiet time with William Samuel.
