“If the Oneness is Everywhere, why is a path needed from some “here” to some “there?” If the Oneness is Always, how can there be enlightenment or heaven at some time other than now? Time and space are mental constructs of the logical mind of man. The mind is nothing but thoughts. Thoughts come and go and can be completely self-contradictory. Thoughts describe an imagined world of subject and object, of not only distinction but separation. Inherent in thought is duality. Behind the mind is Oneness, Being, the Absolute, God. By any name (and the name is irrelevant, a merely playful tag of the deluded mind), the Oneness is Indescribable for it is beyond the poles of language. But a best effort says that it is Silent, Eternal, Omnipresent. Being Silent it has no need for the noise barrage of the sugar-fed child-mind. Being Eternal it is only Now, past and present do not exist in Oneness. Being Omnipresent, it dissolves the separateness at the root of man’s desperate search for happiness, for union with himself, his mate, his family, his possessions, his tribe, his nation, his universe and his God. For when one has become Oneness, one is All. Where is the difficulty of loving thy neighbor as thyself when both are One? Where is the trouble of doing right and being merciful when the universe is thyself? How can fear exist when nothing exists but Oneself?”

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.
