In the books foreword he writes that there are two different kinds of self accessible to us, one built up from our earthly experience and the other overshadowing this as a kind of higher self. The drama of who we are is founded very much on the kind of relationship existing within us between these two selves. The Thirty-three Meditations is a deeply Christian study - but not Christian in the sense of allegiance to any fixed form of religion. Here the emphasis is on ones own personal relationship to the divine within. In the final section we are taken into images that Burton received from a study of The Fifth Gospel - lectures given in 1913 by Rudolf Steiner.

In looking for the essence of selfhood he found himself confronting the one known as Jesus of Nazareth whose destiny it was to sacrifice his earthly ego to become the bearer of the Christ. These are poems that will appeal to anyone who thinks deeply about life and who wants a book that can be kept by the bedside and studied over a period of time, always giving further thoughts. One reader, a psychologist, called it 33 forms of healing medicine for the human ego.
