“Two Palms”

“There were two palm trees standing side by side. One was lit up from below and one was not. The illuminated tree showed silvery green fronds, a shiny, rubbery stock, glowing, gleaming roughly ridged bark, and an otherworldly canopy that seemed to have descended from the heavens. The unlit tree stood dark, stark, and dull. It struck me that the first palm was like a human body lit up by Spirit, and the second, like a body within which the soul was still asleep.”

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.
