Audio book



Love for one-another, the human spring
Mankind is afloat in a sea that is Love
Seeds germinate, become plants
Roots break the ground
Love lifts the barriers, patiently
Silently waiting, reaching for the sky


The novel is fiction, and free online. It deals with a paradigm shift that begins when discoveries of science pull us up to a higher way of thinking about our world and ourselves, and then pulls our social marriages up behind it. Surprising things can happen then. Suddenly, barriers that have stood for ages become transparent and breakable, and shatter as they must. 

Here a story begins that unfolds in India, though it is not rooted in India’s long spiritual history. Rather it is rooted in a 19th Century American discovery of spiritual science that uplifts even India’s ancient truths to a greater profundity. 

‘Breaking’ the 'glass barriers' is actually more a scientific process of seeing through them, by which the barriers become dissolved. They exist in many domains; including the social, civil, moral, as well as the romantic, sexual, and erotic. One even finds that the scientific process of breaking those barriers tends to elevate the political and cultural domains as well, opening a portal to a New World. - 

The novel presented here is a part of the epic series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose.

Will there be a dawning of a new humanity with roses instead of ice? While we lack the resources to hold back the geological Ice Age cycles, we have no such excuse for not ending the deep freeze that is gripping our social scene with ever deeper sexual division and isolation, even marriage isolation, and to replicate this politically. In fact we require a profound new warmth, a new renaissance of universal love at the grassroots level, in order to survive the resuming Ice Age that is already on the horizon, for the challenges are great. 

With this novel the epic story continues, of the series, The Lodging for the Rose.

When rain falls in a long-parched land,
windows are flung open;
love flings aside barriers:
 transparent, fragile,
 like glass that has no strength against love.
