"Petals from a White Rose" appears as the closing thought in Fred's first book; "Petals on the Path: Third Millennium World Teachings".


Peace friends and love to you, the great rose opens to give thanks for being. What lessons present themselves from the petals of this sacred flower, as they unfold one after another from the center of the bud?

As veil upon veil recedes into the cycles of seasons, revealing finer and finer kingdoms within, so too the lessons of the outer life, casting both light and shadow into the inner worlds.

Each petal, a lesson on the path, each embraced fully until its time to return to the earth from which it came, arrives. Like these petals, we too journey to the center of our being, the great journey to our understanding of the divine within.

Enter the journey with joy beloved friend, express your highest awareness each step you take, remember all beings are unfolding at their perfect rate, each determined by the conditions they meet. The sun's rays touch each of us at a different point, through the revolution of our planet within our solar system, we each progress through the fixed rounds.

Touch the petals with great care, as the heavy hand soils the delicate unfolding, breathe lightly with great kindness, savor each moment as it recedes into the vast eternity of forever.

Petal upon petal ever unfolding, the great white rose revealed in the fullness of its glory, breathe in the sweetness of its fragrance, for this time is brief and yet eternal.

The rose now returns to its finer elements, building blocks for future petals of a white rose.

Peace upon your path. Peace, peace, peace.
