Albigen System, the reverse path to discovery of the truth about oneself, as explained by Richard Rose in The Albigen Papers. Review by Bart Marshall (Raleigh, NC USA) Richard Rose is an awakened teacher who has spent his life tirelessly pointing the way for others to awaken-- and it. little. (In other words, this system outlines a path, and shows the mechanics of the Path in the Albigen Papers. It is important that the verbatim message of that last.
Rose continued to write and publish while his study groups expanded.
His public lectures continued until the early s, when he started to show signs of deterioration from Alzheimer's disease. Teachings[ edit ] Rose's student David Gold described his work as esoteric  and direct.
He came from humble roots, then studied as a scientist.
His teachings were based on a lifetime of experience and research, and in particular an experience when he was thirty. Joseph Chilton Pearce described him: "Rose is a no-nonsense West Virginian who wants nothing more from life than to somehow pass on the cataclysmic spiritual experience, the Enlightenment that blind-sided him when he was a young man.
They were more about pursuing personal insight and introspection than a set of specific techniques. Where did I come from before birth? Where am I going after death?
Rose recommends a deep investigation of "who" is living and experiencing: clearly defining self and ego. He thought approaching spirituality as a way to find peace or enhance one's life, which he called "utilitarian," was foolish. Instead he advocated total dedication to a search for truth — in particular concerning self and ego — in spite of the personal consequences. He used the term "Jacob's Ladder" image as a kind of transpersonal map. He also believed that one could only effectively help, or be helped by, others who were on the same or adjacent rungs of the ladder.
He felt "extra-proportional returns" were realized when a group of people combine their efforts in any endeavor, which he called the "Contractor's Law".
Instead one removes misunderstandings. His working definition of truth was "a condition from which all untruth has been removed. His theories about the transmutation of energy from the body through the mind up to what he called the "spiritual quantum,"  were published after that and similar to some recent theories describing the mind as a force-field. He produced a pamphlet on a method of meditation involving the dispassionate review of past traumatic events as a way to overcome psychological problems and to understand the ego.
His book Psychology of the Observer encapsulated his views on the structure of mind-processes and what he described as the internal ascent from a personal, conflicted view of the world to a more Universal perspective.
He was a hypnotist , occasionally giving demonstrations, and said that understanding hypnotism was a key to understanding the mechanics of the mind. Rose also believed that progress on one's spiritual path was linked to one's efforts at helping others. Rose recommended a number of authors to his students and disparaged other authors, based on his research. In Albigen Papers he described H.
In personal interactions he would attempt to dispel illusions and falsehoods that students were hiding from themselves. This sharpness caused his students to call him a Zen master, even though he was highly critical of mainstream Zen.
In fact, the first group established by Rose was called Zen Study Group, in Pittsburgh, reflecting his embrace of Zen methods, and other groups were called Pyramid Zen Society, an admission that those interested in total commitment would be few the top of the pyramid as explained in various recorded talks.
Rose gave a series of lectures in the s which outlined his approach to Zen and which incorporated the term Zen in the title: The Psychology of Zen; Zen and Common Sense; Zen and Death; etc. SelfDef relates some of his personal experiences here.
