“The Stream”

“Ramana led the group down a narrow path between some sharp-thorned shrubs that required care to safely pass. In the distance, they could hear the purling waters of a lively stream. They finally reached the water, whose bubbling and murmuring flow sent pleasant music to their ears. A relatively steep slope led down to the stream, in whose midst stood out several gray rocks resplendent under the still strong sunshine. The water’s color was remarkable for its soothing shade of grayish green. Dried twigs and small branches covered most of the soil on the banks. A few smooth stones offered places to sit comfortably. This place looked like an oasis on the hot mountain, like a little paradise tucked away from the main trails up the hill.”

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.
