If you're on the path you might even become enlightened!
Alan Sullivan, author of Peak Performance!!: Merging Spirituality and Success Principles (Peak Performance Series Book 1)
To add to this shared journey into the numinous, Maddox uses his extensive knowledge and love of music as a pathway towards the mystical. As with many of the world's wisdom traditions, music is a gateway into the Absolute. In this beautiful novella, Joshua's musical prodigiosity provides the perfect medium within which Maddox takes us into the Enlightenment realms. As Maddox writes, "For Joshua music concentrated the magical atmosphere through which he felt himself moving in everyday life. Music distilled this magic down to its essence. While he played certain pieces of music, he lost all sense of being in any way limited by his body or mind, and merged with the Absolute that he knew underlay everything in the universe. The best music swept him up into the Absolute, and its particular quality determined the route and flavor by and with which he traveled and tasted it."
As Maddox himself says, "Great art expands the consciousness of the audience, gives it a taste of the Infinite...An artistic master functions like a guru, offering a glimpse of the promised land, inspiring the disciple to stay on the path to it." As with all of his books, Maddox IS this very kind of artistic master. This is a delightful map to guide the reader toward Enlightenment. Maddox states, "The overpowering charm of the Absolute lit an unquenchable fire in one's heart. To realize that the only reality of life existed now and forever, unchanging, brilliant, peaceful, and joyous, brought one to the point of grateful tears." Let this beautiful book light an unquenchable fire in your heart and bring you to the point of grateful tears. That in itself is masterful writing!
The quality of the writing is very special: each word is chosen very carefully for ideal effect. The novella works on several levels: the practical one of the boy and his friends, the musical one focuses on his genius and the spiritual one, centered on his consciousness. This is truly an exquisite short book that I highly recommend you read!
