“Sacred Presence”

“The ambience around an enlightened being is such that anyone in it has their attention ineluctably broadened to the most expansive and generous outlook. It is as though the holy person merely points up to the sky and everyone around him stops concentrating on the thorns and pebbles over which they are trudging and gazes heavenward: to behold an angel with nacred wings spread so wide as to fill the sky, whose form is resplendent with the sun and moon and a thousand stars, smiling blessings down upon them and uplifting their hearts. The angel is ever-present, but the sightline of humanity is rarely directed upward. And to get upward, one must, according to the curious directionality of consciousness, go inward. Saints in their smiles, in their silent irradiations of deep peace, turn the attention of their listeners inward and hence upward.”

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.
