“The Unbounded Heart”

Excerpt from “Remembering Eternity”: “Skylar’s heart did not simply emerge from the oubliette where it had long hidden, but it issued from that neglected darkness with the spiritual effulgence of a saint who has spent fifteen years in ceaseless communication with God. It was no longer a question of finding his heart inside his body but of locating his body at all: there appeared to be nothing left of him other than heart. The materials of his body got sublimated and, once purified, repurposed to fashion a massive dynamo-heart whose veins and arteries became the nadis, or subtle energy channels, of the universe as a whole. In this way, Skylar’s entire being was transmuted into an organ of love (whose diastolic in-taking and systolic out-flowing resolved into the ebb and flow of the tide), which brought together the energy conduits of the universe in the same way the physical heart united the 72,000 nadis of the human body.”

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.
