“Genuine Spirituality”

“Let us have rituals and churches, bureaucracies, rules, politics, robes, feast days, holy waters, hand-washings, kneeling, aiming directionally, and the ringing of bells; let us mate and call it holy and beat drums and feel the pulse of the universe; let us interpret our fellow beings’ auras and cleanse their chakras, heal them with colored stones and whisper magical formulae over them to purify the filth of ugly childhoods still clinging to their subtle bodies. Let everyone indulge themselves as they seek the One. It is good that there be entertainment for those who tread the path that does not exist. For there is no seeker, and there is no road, and there is no goal. The separation inherent in the concept of a “person” seeking a “goal” is the very duality preventing Oneness. But let us be clear that rituals and ceremonies, recitations and songs are adventitious to Spirit. True spirituality shuts itself off in a closet and prays or takes itself to a remote mountain cave and meditates or empties its mind as it watches its breath or finds its nature as it turns its eye on itself. At bottom, spirituality is humanity’s search for its essence. Such a search is necessarily a quiet, internal, non-intellectual process.”

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.
