This book is AHONU’s true story about the loss of his first child, his pain and his struggle with grief and guilt and the coming to terms with his loss. It forms the foundation of his entire philosophy of life and is a superb grounding in the growth of spiritual awareness. It is truly an epic voyage from the pain and sorrow of a father’s grief to the new world of love and forgiveness.
My baby was found dead in his crib when he was four months old. There was no sound, no struggle. A postmortem failed to show an adequate cause of death. In the absence of any diagnosis the recorded cause of death was Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or Crib Death, as it is more commonly known in the USA. Ryan was a perfectly healthy, thriving four month old. The fact that he was born on Columbus Day and died on my birthday did nothing to alleviate the recurring pain that I suffered every year on his anniversary!
It is an account of the profound effects the death of my infant had on my life as an adult male, telling in graphic detail the results of buried emotion on family, friends and business relationships.
It is a man’s struggle because most men bottle up their feelings in much the same way as I did. Real men don’t cry, I was told. I have documented in this book the ruinous effect this old male approach to grief had on my life and in doing so I hope it goes some way to healing the malaise, the mediocrity, the buried pain, the UN-forgiven, the unsaid, the hidden hurt in fathers, in mothers and all those left behind after the death of a loved one.
This book was written primarily from my own need to journal about my feelings, to help release myself from the deep-seated pain and guilt that began to rot me from the moment of Ryan’s death. This book is my journey of self-discovery. It is a slow, painful and sometimes desperate story of my struggle to move out of mediocrity into a life deeply searching for soul purpose.
Ryan’s death resulted in the loss of my business at the time, and several other subsequent businesses, which brought my family and I to our financial knees. It stretched my relationship with my former wife inevitably to divorce.
Many old attitudes still pervade the mainstream medical professions. I hope this book changes the old attitudes and pre-conceived ideas about men and their inability to cry. I hope it helps bring about a new worldview of sexuality towards women and motherhood. I hope it changes our thinking around the purpose of pain and death and helps in some small way, to return us to clarity, understanding and joy. I hope it helps us all to move out of mediocrity and into real love and forgiveness for ourselves, for the first time, for all time.
The death of a loved one impacts each person’s perception about life and death in different ways. This is my truth about death, and paradoxically, how it led to my life. My story revealed my life purpose to me. It revealed to me who I am and why I am here. I hope it will help you find who you are and why you are here!
I hope that in reading this, all those who are touched by loss will be more open and expressive of their grief than I was. If the pain I re-lived in writing this book helps even one person to make sense of any death, it will all have been worthwhile.
