The moral ground is often deemed
the ultimate in civilized living. But is it? The historic researcher in the
spiritual domain, Mary Baker Eddy (1826-1910) didn't think so. In fact she
pioneered the perception the moral ground should be considered as but a
transitional stage between the sphere of depravity and all its horrors such as
war, violence, stealing and so on, and the sphere of scientific spiritual
development. Thus the moral ground is not one of safety, but is a vulnerable ground
that includes the potential for regression into insanity. In her presentation
the moral ground becomes a starting point that one should leave behind as fast
as possible on the scientific development path to safer spiritual ground.
have incorporated this alternate concept for healing into the series of
novels, The Lodging for the Rose. The series involves a daring attempt
to put the Principle of Universal Love into a world where
universal love is shunned,
a world torn by divisions, darkened by isolation, threatened by war and
war, and as of late by many millions of uranium bombs (DU bombs), which
altogether put a big question mark onto mankind's very survival on this
planet. Against this background the glow of universal love creates a new paradigm for the
political with the challenge that we upgrade our civilization into a
world, even a world with the kind of strength that will
enable us in the near future to maintain our sprawling civilization undeterred by the
next return of
the Ice Age that might begin in the near future, possibly even in the
The suspense in the stories of the novels is not carried by political intrigue as one might expect.
Instead it unfolds from the complexities of relationships, marriage, romance, sex, and science, in an environment of an
ever-expanding concept of love. Here the political games that unleash imperial wars, violence, and terror are
kept in the background. The flow of the novels is powered by unfolding 'intimacies'
of love that are not dimmed by long-taught emotions, or hatred, fear, or even
by the golden cages that we isolate ourselves
socially and politically, contrary to our hopes and desires.
Yes, there is a 'magic' in the love that unfolds from the heart of our humanity that we all share as human beings.
Love thus becomes the light of the series of novels where it shines as it must,
are all, and always will be as human beings, a people "clothed with the sun."
The truth of what we are doesn't change with the winds of circumstances
no matter how dim the world may become from time to time as society chooses to close
its eyes to its own light and cower in fear, 'hiding' from itself. Human history has
failed itself in that manner on numerous occasions, allowing systems of
empire to rule.
In its long historic pattern
that have repeated dragged society into ages of a deepest 'night,' but
also have uplifted it to the brightest noon-day, and there
has always been a new 'sunrise' emerging after every night. Indeed, war is
not the natural concomitant for mankind, because when the resources for
war have become exhausted, peace and humanity have always resumed. Peace
is the default state and the real state of civilization, the intelligent
state which promises to grow brighter with progressive scientific and
Today's challenge is to take the pattern of history higher and
closer into the light of our humanity, whereby we assure ourselves that there won't be any
more 'night' there. We have the power to do this, don't we? Nor is there
any real magic involved in the realization of what unfolds naturally,
only love is involved. Love is vital. It takes us above the moral
