“Tree Vision”

“Miraculously, the tree had been transformed into a living wonder. It became completely transparent and changed its nature from that of a hard, tangible object to something amorphous, and immaterial. The tree glowed with the untouchable splendor of a rainbow. Its light resembled the phosphorescence sometimes seen on the surface of a southern sea. It fascinated like a vision seen in a psychedelic trance, irresistibly absorbing the attention of the friends. They could see right through the bark to the phloem. It looked like a huge sponge, one of those natural oceanic sponges, with indentations of differing sizes. The innards of the tree resembled a vast network of cells connected one to the other. The friends could see water flowing up from the roots of the tree, which were clearly visible to them, through the xylem canals, out to the leaves.”

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.
