“The Wise Child”

“The greatest of all challenges to be faced in a lifetime, then, was finding one’s way, not only back to a childlike state of innocence, but forward to the permanence of Being a wise and saintly child. A merely young child compares to a saintly child as deep sleep compares to enlightenment: in youth and sleep one enjoys the peace of non-mentality but cannot maintain it amidst the chaotic Sturm und Drang of the worldly illusion. One had not only to rediscover the innocence and expansive immediacy of childhood but to find for the first time Eternity, Silence, and Peace on the very battlefield of daily life.”

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.
