While I was reading "The Absolute", I felt like dust was being shaken off my feet. As a pilgrim who's only desire is to find Home, but who loses sense of direction at some point, I was being guided back on the path by my own Spirit, which has recognized the truth of "The Absolute". Knowing that this book has come into my life as an answer to my prayers and feeling overjoyed by receiving this gift from Mother, I wrote the following to Nick Burrin, and it was all I could write: "My heart is reading your book. Thank you so much."
A very humble answer came from him. I could feel he did not write his books for praise or recognition but for the sole purpose of fulfilling the Divine's will, that of sharing his experiences with the world and enlighten the way for us to become the Spirit. When love is overflowing, you can't keep it for yourself, so this is what you do; you give it to the others.
Many artists who are being appreciated for their timeless divine art have said about their art that it is not coming from them but from the Creator. So like few others eg William Blake, Rumi, Kahlil Gibran, Rabindranath Tagore etc, Nick Burrin has surrendered to the divine flow of love, and has given us " The Absolute", " Beyond all doubt, is Jerusalem the holy city" and " So daisies, really are made in Heaven", as pure streams of consciousness. As Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga, has said about "Beyond all doubt is Jerusalem, the holy city": "At last not someone writing about Sahaja Yoga, but writing about God".
Some people might say that it is all poetry. Others might deny his experiences. There will always be people standing on one or the other side of the Truth. The voice within tells me that the books will get to the people who need them and are ready to understand and grow; will be here for generations to come, and will change humanity in a way it has not been done before.
It is my deep desire to witness those times.
A few Rumi verses in tune with "The Absolute":
"Tomorrow, when resurrection comes,
The heart that is not in love will fail the test."
"There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the other eye."
"I see so deeply within myself.
Not needing my eyes, I can see everything clearly.
Why would I want to bother my eyes again
Now that I see the world through His eyes?
In the waters of purity, I melted like salt
Neither blasphemy, nor faith, nor conviction, nor doubt remained.
In the center of my heart a star has appeared
And all the seven heavens have become lost in it.
You personify God's message.
You reflect the King's face.
There is nothing in the universe that you are not
Everything you want, look for it within yourself -you are that."
