“Joy Within”

Excerpt from “Remembering Eternity”: “Eternity and Joy had not disappeared but only retreated into deep sanctuary. Like precious holy texts which, in an act of sacrilege (for he had gathered together the sacred instruments and scriptures), he had carried deep into the bowels of his being, into caves, down precipitous flights of stairs, along tortuous and constricted pathways, behind boulder-protected chambers, across booby-trapped rooms, through claustrophobic crawl spaces, within chained vestibules, the timeless and infinite Bliss had been secreted where no one but him would ever find It. In its deep and lonely seclusion, it could be fondled and dandled and cooed over as a love-drunk mother dotes on her first child.”

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.
