“Why did she think herself different and weird? Front and center was her awareness of Eternity: she intuited that everything, absolutely (or, at least, relatively) everything that people in the world saw, felt, and thought about, was, in a crucial sense, unimportant. From experience she knew that there was an entirely different, better, infinite, and intemporal way of living, of which others remained ignorant. This knowledge gave her life the feeling of a play: all the time she was delivering her lines and making her entrances and exits (to applause, boos, or boredom), she realized that her act was nothing more than a performance in a false theatre, with false props, artificial lighting, and fellow actors also delivering lines written for them. This understanding undermined the entire basis of the world and everything that happened in it.”

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.
