Dear Mr. Mike Williams,

I have meant to write this letter to you a million times and have finally decided to send it. I have listened to your tapes for years now and although I cannot offer you any financial support at this time I wish to express my most heartfelt thanks and gratitude for what you do. Simply and undeniably your message has helped me out in ways that I cannot even describe. It has helped me change my view on myself, on the world and on all of those around me. It has helped restore my faith and replaced my confusion and bitterness with the most indescribable love for humanity and a hope that I know will never die. I feel so happy and full of peace at times that I think I might burst and I feel like those feelings are actually starting to spill over as I learn to express this feeling I feel to others in the form of friendship and acceptance.

The main purpose of this letter is actually because recently I heard you say on one of your tapes that someone asked you how could it be possible that such a small group of people could have truth but I want to tell you that the more I hear your message the more I understand everything; philosophy, other religions, literature, movies and especially lyrics in songs. I think that the idea you have tapped into is one that has existed and has been shared by some of the greatest thinkers, philosophers, scientist and artists. I just wanted to share a few of the lyrics that I have found to suddenly ring true in my heart and comfort me and I think that they are some that you will definitely be able to relate to:

From the album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill by “Lauryn Hill”:

My world it moves so fast today
The past it seems so far away
And I squeeze it so tight, I can’t breathe
And every time I try to be
What someone has thought of me
So caught up, I wasn’t able to achieve
But deep in my heart the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to find my own destiny
I look at my environment
And wonder where the fire went
What happened to everything we used to be
I hear so many cry to help
Searching outside themselves
Now I know His strength is within me
And I made up my mind to find my own destiny
And deep in my heart the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to find my own destiny

From the Album Reverance by “Faithless”:

Quiet, still, you feel there’s nothing going on
Until you realize that place behind your eyes
is filling up with something like peace
as your thoughts cease
Pleasure grows in your soul

I ain’t a Christian
Sometimes I feel like dissing them
But listen, I’m just tryin’ to tell ya what I know
If you would once relax
Chill to the max
These words would cause
sweet bells to ring in your soul.

If I say God is alive, I know you’ll wanna know why babies die,
Food don’t grow, why trains smash, planes crash
Situation mash, an slam-bam ya fellow man
Money’s in fashion. It ain’t rational because dammit,
He didn’t just give us the planet and its wealth.
Deep inside your soul he left a piece of himself
The Lord is in here, his voice is small
Y’ keep lyin’ and tryin’, denying the call from inside.
You can’t hide responsibility
So decide from today just how it’s gonna be.
Thou shalt have no other god but me.
He can set ya free, see, butcha hafta listen
And who’s that false idol I see ya kissin.
Money, success and untold wealth, good health
And all ya hafta do is love yourself.
It’s a fact, you’ll attract all the things thatcha lack.
So take a pace back, face facts it’s your decision.
You don’t need eyes to see you need vision.
Continue to view the Lord as bein’ separated
And you’re living a lie that’s been perpetrated.
For many centuries, I wanna mention these facts in my rap
I don’t sing but I wanna share the peace it brings….

From the album Pop by “U2”

From the song “If God will send his angels”
…Jesus never let me down you know,
Jesus used to show me the score
then they put Jesus in show business
now it’s hard to get your foot in the door…

From the album All that you can’t leave behind by “U2” ( the best band in the world)


Grace, she takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name

Grace, it’s the name for a girl
It’s also a thought that changed the world
And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness in everything

Grace, she’s got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She’s got the time to talk
She travels outside of karma
She travels outside of karma
When she goes to work
You can hear her strings
Grace finds beauty in everything

Grace, she carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips
She carries a pearl in perfect condition

What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark?
No longer stings
Because Grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things

Grace makes beauty out of ugly things

I just want to let you know that I will forever thank God for allowing me to cross paths with you because your ministry has helped me open my eyes to the truth that I was blind to before. It has helped me accept myself and set me free from guilt and condemnation and I feel a strength growing inside my heart that feels endless, boundless and so stable. Thank you so much for helping me realize what was always there and what will never leave me no matter what I do. Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you.
