“Beautiful as the Sky”

“‘I never think you can surpass yourself, darling, and then you go and prove me wrong: you look as beautiful as that sky.’ And he lifted a finger heavenward. His compliment carried weight, for, when she gazed up, the woman saw what looked like a volcanic eruption of cloud. From a base of shadowed porcelain blue, the vapors progressively lightened first to cyan, then to whipped-cream, and finally to blazing, silvered white. Small human-shaped figures broke off from the irregular upper edge of the mass, entering into a cylinder of down-pouring sunlight. They seemed to wish to be taken up that tube of light back into the sun. Had a masterly artist been able to paint this skyscape, a work of genius would certainly have resulted.”

Richard Maddox

Richard Dietrich Maddox's writing focuses on the search for permanent happiness, the goal of finding paradise on earth, the attainment of human Enlightenment. His work, though fiction, attempts to convey the profound spiritual Truth passed on to humanity by Enlightened Masters. Maddox approaches spiritual wisdom from a Western level of experience, presenting characters to whom readers can easily relate, offering situations in which readers might well have found themselves. His work offers, in a style which those living in the West will find understandable, the possibility of blissful existence.
