“The Absolute in the Physical”

“Spiritual evolution consists in first discovering and then bringing the wisdom, the Love, of the Absolute into one’s physical existence. If one makes these discoveries but fails to bring them down into the body, so that they can be lived in daily life, then one has only half succeeded. The process of infusing spiritual Truth into matter—really one of awakening to the Spirit essence of everything thought to be material—usually involved, in its earliest stages, confusing the Truth and the matter. Someone begins to feel the universal impulse of Love and mistakenly believes that it has been caused by a specific person: he or she becomes love as it were. At higher stages of consciousness, this Love will be spread over great numbers of people, as people come to be understood as Spirit and Spirit as Love. Someone else finds their soul spreading beyond their body to encompass a wide stretch of the surroundings and wrongly concludes that the ocean before and the sky above them have produced this expansion of consciousness. Much like imprinting birds, people taking their first steps out of spiritual transport attach their sublime feelings to whatever or whoever happens to be in the vicinity.”

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.
