“The Enlightened”

“An Enlightened Being sees the waves on the surface of the ocean as “ocean,” not as separate entities. People stuck in typical waking consciousness get tripped up by their own verbal labels, calling the waves “waves,” and fully, if thoughtlessly, believing them to be something other than conformations of the great ocean. In like manner, the Saint perceives the multiform shapes and variegated colors of humans, animals, plants, and objects, but only as temporary configurations of the Absolute, of Consciousness. Just as water can appear as steam or ice, looking and feeling quite different than it did as water but retaining its identity as such, so Infinite Being can assume the myriad shapes found in the universe without ever losing its unchanging nature.”

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.
