“What Is Art?”

“Great art derives from the Absolute, from Eternity, from God: from consciousness established even temporarily in the Infinite, the artist understands life without bounds, space without end, time without beginning or end, peace that passeth understanding, happiness such as mere earth-life can never provide, beauty and harmony that can only be called “perfect.” The artist then creates art imbued with the Infinite, which functions like a hologram: when a devotee of the arts applies laser-like consciousness to the work, the Infinite gets re-created in his own awareness. Only to the extent that the laser shined the pure light of appreciation will the hologram fully present the Infinite. And the quality of the art work will only capture the flavor of the Absolute to the degree that the artist remains transcendent throughout the process of creation. If unicity is lost at any point in creation, the work will suffer imperfections. If unicity is lost before the work is complete, it may remain an unfinished symphony or a partially painted canvas.”

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.
