This man John Sherman

This man ‘John Sherman’



I started out with Ramana

A long, long time ago

Then soon I came Krishnamurti

Oh how I loved him so

Then Osho, he did show is face

The great man that he was

Then Eckhart touched the soul of me

I loved all them because…..



They had some wondrous things to say

That I heard from deep within

They spoke of truth so very deep

And so I did begin

To meditate and bare my soul

I was not good at this

But I did have some magic moments

All filled with so much bliss.



Then one day surfing on the net

I found this king of men

He told me just one act to do

That really was a gem

He told me ‘look at you’ my friend

That’s all one has to do

Now this was four short years ago

And I can swear to you….



This act ‘John Sherman’ gave to me

It really did the trick

My life is calm and peaceful now

And harmony does stick

With me all the blessed time

He gave me transformation

And now I want to spread his name

To every single nation.
