“If ‘There is no Recipe for a Lightning Bolt’—Why Meditate?” by Andrew McMaster. Mac, a longtime student of esoteric studies and Zen, sheds light, if not lightning, on the value of Rose’s advice on meditation; “For Whom the Carillon Tolls.” From his book of poetry and essays, we couldn’t resist including “Psychology of Miracles” in this particular newsletter; “An In-depth View on the Psychology of Richard Rose,” by Alan Fitzpatrick. With the upcoming release of his book, The Sex Connection, the author discusses Richard Rose’s teachings on sex and the search for Truth; “Letters from Richard Rose—The ‘Post-Experience’ Correspondence.” A recent discovery of letters dating from 1950 on, has been quite a revelation in regards to Rose’s views on teachers and organizations as expressed to friends and contacts; “More Poignant Poetry,” by James Cornie. Jim shares his poetry, delivered in the 1980’s at a Kerouac Festival in Lowell, MA, reflecting a bit of the influence and philosophy of Richard Rose on a longtime friend and student.
