I have always loved Max’s writing since I first met him
in Myrtle Beach in 1996 and was invited to play cello at the opening of his art show, at which he also sang and read poems, and I was delighted to have an opportunity to read and review this
The book is divided into four parts: ‘The Journey,’ ‘A Bouquet for the Master,’ ‘Ghazals’, and ‘Prose Poems and Parables’. The Journey charts Max’s journey to find God, and encapsulates that
bittersweet longing and desire which we experience along the way. The next chapter focuses on Max’s love for the Master, with the third chapter: ‘Ghazals’ continuing to explore the theme of love,
though in the traditional format of the ghazal. ‘Prose Poems and Parables’ is a delightlfully imaginative ending to the book, charting pilgrimage, the love of the Sun for the world, and the
arrival of Discourses on the internet in 2004!
To my mind Max at his best is capable of the most extraodinary image making - akin to a Hafiz or Rumi, instantly striking the heart of the reader with Love’s arrow. ‘Journey from here to HERE’ is a delightful addition to any Baba library and can be purchased from
