Humanity is the carrier of Life - the Spirit of the Undefeatable.
metaphors apply to define our humanity, and many more to define life and all
things beautiful, but few combine both. In the final chapter of the final
volume of the 12-volume series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose, Lianhua is
the name of a girl who becomes the spiritual leader of a society of people who
found such wholeness in their living by the leadership of her wisdom that
ancient stuffy monasticism became blessed by a new infusion of life by it. As
the freedom and riches of life are forever a threat to the great kings of
empire who rise to strike it down wherever they can, the spirit of Lianhua
lives on in the story, shaping a brightening dawn of humanity that ultimately
nothing can prevent from becoming a new day.

story is fiction. It is historic fiction located in China in the region of
Lu Mountain that once was home to numerous monasteries and great spiritual
healers. If humanity is to survive the present rush to
evermore war, and the inevitable nuclear war on the tracks that the world is

was a time when our collective answer to war, fascism, tyranny, torture,
genocide, and so on was a resounding NEVER AGAIN. Those words have been
long forgotten, even the laws that humanity once had sworn to uphold as

good. We need to do this. We need to listen to the heart, to Lianhua, and become bearers of gifts for
the world instead of destroyers of it.
