The Lodging for the Rose

a series of novels
 by Rolf A. F. Witzsche


 Episode 3

 Winning Without Victory


When the fire of war seems like peace,
how can we reach for the fire of love that is peace?


This novel is fiction, an episode of the epic series, The Lodging for the Rose, a series that is focusing on universal love as a force for universal good. 

Except, who cares about the universal good in a world of darkness, greed, poverty, and terror of war? Isnít love something we put on a rose leaf, reserved for special occasions, or with a smile that we parade with a purpose, or an emotion that we must hide when it is not convenient or is not allowed? We sooner build empires by force than love universally, but in the end we cry like frightened children when other empires send us a nuclear bomb. 

Is it too late then to love? Indeed, can we love while we close our eyes? Would we want to live like the tyrants do, who are too blind to see? 

The Principle of Universal Love is one of the great principles of the universe that enables the realization of dreams, even those that we might not yet have dared to dream except in sex and erotica where we let the eyelids droop nevertheless. 

Can we really win in this world then, without leaving a trail of vanquished behind us? It seems we can win. We can win with the Principle of Universal Love, which requires no victory, but honesty and humanity, the true hallmarks of mankind.
