“Spell of Luna”

“Several nights later, I was on the ocean road heading back to the apartment. Like a drunk or a man with love-eyes fixated on the woman at his side, I could not focus on the road down which I drove, but, instead, felt a spell from on high drawing my vision upwards. The moon, squished like a poorly packaged fruit that had been in-pressed on one side, had a pale-orange cast. Moonlight rained down from it in a cascade of luminous droplets, oblong and particulate, which stopped before reaching the sea. Bits of mist like insect hordes pullulated in front of my car, forming nearly solid waves of pale-gray specks as they passed. Now the moonlight re-appeared, different. It struck the ocean like horizontal lightning, creating giant zigs and zags over its softly swaying surface. Interposing clouds suddenly altered the lighting, instantly shifting it to a more distant patch of sea, and creating a gap in the bolt, now discontinuous and weird.”

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.
