“The Saint”

“By his presence at La Mer, the Master raised the awareness of the audience to that sublime level where the underlying unity of all creation is manifest. Being near him, we began to see our commonality rather than our differences. We understood the importance of having a higher mission on earth than simply struggling through each day as best we could, constantly seeking to fulfill selfish ambitions and satisfy sensuous goals. His words inspired us with an appreciation of the value of our work; we may have only been serving meals, but we were functioning as parts of a larger apparatus whose purpose was the enlightenment of the world. Throughout history generals have roused soldiers to go out on the battlefield and kill their fellow humans. Religious leaders have repeatedly motivated their zealots to force their own beliefs on the so-called heathen non-believers, even to kill them if they resisted the message. But at La Mer, we were being inspirited not to take life, but to return it, not to convert others to a specific religion or lifestyle, but to allow them to experience their own traditions in the fullest manner possible. Thus, the Master’s words were heady stuff for young seekers to hear and absorb.”

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.
