"Whenever problems seem to get the best of me, whenever I feel them closing in on me, I go to a quiet place that lies somewhere in my soul. I do not reason, analyze or think. Those will come later. I simply go. From this place of silence, I garner strength and inspiration to stand firm in the face of fire, to be calm in the midst of thunder. When I emerge, the world has not changed, but I have. And in changing, a whole new world is born."
--John Harricharan

Introduction by Brad Steiger to
When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat

I think everyone enjoys the thrill of discovery, the inner joy of unearthing some previously undetected gem of thought, idea, or philosophical concept that one is certain will soon become immensely popular and widely heralded. I had that thrill and joy of discovery in 1985 when my dear friend John Harricharan sent me his "just finished" manuscript for my opinion.

The manuscript bore the superficially humorous, but spiritually challenging title, When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat. I knew from my first read-through that the world would soon be hearing a great deal about this beautiful book. I perceived that this marvelous, modern parable would seize the imagination and the hearts of hundreds of thousands of readers. Today, more than a decade later, with its worldwide acclaim, its many awards and prizes, my initial assessment has been proven accurate over and over again.

In my Introduction to the first edition, published in 1986, I praised the manner in which John blended universal truths with effective storytelling techniques. The first-person narrative depicts a series of crises and triumphs within the world of commerce which coincided with a pilgrimage of soul in the higher realms. Throughout the text, John Harricharan the author and "John," the narrator, keep encouraging us to continue to pay our physical dues and to continue to learn and to grow. Through a powerful progression of dramatic lessons, "John" comes to understand that all the pain, chaos, and confusion is actually trying to teach us that we chose to put on the fleshly clothes of Earth to fulfill a mission of spiritual growth. All of the chaotic, swirling energy around us can be interpreted as quagmires of death and depression -- or as opportunities for life and learning.

And now, many years after I penned the introduction to the first edition of When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat, I am honored to have been asked once again to serve as the "host" who stands at the portal of this unique and fascinating work -- and I am more eager than ever to invite new readers to explore its depths and wonders.

Just as we all love the thrill of discovery, I am certain that we would all like to meet some remarkable sage like the mysterious Gideon, whom John, our narrator encounters within the pages of this book. And that, of course, is the timeless enchantment of an extended allegory such as When You Can Walk on Water... . Through the magic of entering the vision that John Harricharan has translated onto these pages, we may each of us join him on a spiritual pilgrimage that will lead us to the goal of higher awareness and greater enlightenment.

 "John Harricharan will absolutely amaze you with the clarity and depth of his vision. John always enables me to see the truths and possibilities inherent in my personal and business situations. Having John as a close personal friend allows me a distinct advantage over those who are not acquainted with this very special human being. With John as my mentor, I am constantly learning how to improve who I am and become who I want to be. I can't emphasize to you how strongly I suggest you take this opportunity to allow John Harricharan to become your teacher and mentor as well. Visit his websites as often as you can!"
