“All we can say for sure is that suffering is inevitable on the path to God. There will be pain and loneliness, sickness and heartbreak for everyone in the world. All we can do is offer up our suffering to God and allow Him to remove the burden from our shoulders. I have seen very sick children who still smiled brightly because the love of God was strong in their hearts. I’ve been by the bedside of men dying from painful diseases who kept blessing God, even in their abject misery. Oftentimes, it is those who have the least reason to suffer, the wealthy and powerful, who remain furthest from God. They are caught up in their money and their politics and can never spare a moment for humble prayer to their Creator. So, we should not be quick to believe that suffering, as we normally know it, is a completely bad thing.’”

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.
