“Tahitian Beach”

“We all settled back on our leaves to watch the ocean. What ancient memories and dim recollections of the womb the breaking surf must bring back to us. How else to explain the fascination it holds? Despite our knowing with certainty that each splashing wave will be followed by another, we still see in every one something uniquely precious and powerful. It is as though each wave is a life, unique in configuration, beautiful as it rises, crests, foams, spreads, and then disappears, swallowed by the thirsty sands. We feel hope as the wave comes closer to shore. We wonder where and how it will crest. We thrill at the moment it reaches its climax. And we are saddened by its disappearance: a disappearance so complete as to make one question whether it had ever truly existed.”

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.
