The Lodging for the Rose

a series of novels
 by Rolf A. F. Witzsche


 Episode 1 

Discovering Love


How does a gardener love a rose?
Isn't its beauty rooted in his heart?
A rose means nothing to a rat.
What do we discover then in our love, 
but ourselves? 


       Freedom powered by universal love is a largely unexplored ‘country.’ Few people have dared to cross its borders and travel its landscape. Mostly, we are afraid of it. In marriage it is deemed treason; in relationships, poison; in politics, a joke; in business, a big no-no, and in sex, who knows? Nevertheless, without universal love as a principle we wouldn't have a civilization, and in the nuclear-armed world we might not survive while keeping it under wraps. Thus, the novel begins an epic story of love beyond romance, beyond borders and boundaries, even politics, in a scientific search that unfolds around  the Principle of Universal Love at the center.

The epic series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose, unfolds across twelve episodes. Its principle of universal love promises a New Renaissance. But who is willing to face its challenges and boldly step into its world to discover its light? Who stands courageous to break the strong chains of sexual division and isolation? Who can counter the many myths and trained emotions that have been forged over the ages? Who can overrule them with an honesty that embraces our humanity in truth? Here, romance can be uplifted with a brighter joy, and the erotic enriched with a passion that we all share even as we enrich our world and one-another.
