“Into the Silence”

“And Being exerted a centripetal force on both of them. If they did not themselves put forth effort, they would spontaneously retreat into motionless Silence. For this Silence was supremely attractive. It consisted in Bliss. It had as its nature, Peace. Nothing could possibly be more welcome than the Absolute. Of course, they never really left It, even when acting or speaking; but making a splash on the Ocean was subtly different than simply floating on It. Their natural state was to float, as a bather does on a sunlit sea, the salt waters supporting her body, the warmth of Helios comforting her skin, not moving a limb or opening an eye. Sometimes, when people spoke to them, a few moments would pass before they responded. These moments were required for them to realize that another person was in the water with them, splashing and calling, and seeking to rouse them from their flotational nirvana.”

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.
