ROCK ON, REV. ROACH!
How many long hours do we spend listening to our
favorite rock songs? So much sinks into our souls at an
unconscious level, yet we often don’t give music and
lyrics enough conscious credit for their role in awakening
our heart or shifting our understanding. In “Luminous
Lyrics” (September/October), Rev. Paul John Roach
shines the light of appreciation upon the beautiful
“Rising Sun” by George Harrison. Few rock songs have
such an overtly expansive, spiritual message of waking
up out of illusion and opening to a beautiful reality. It
would be easy to dismiss the song’s messages as cliché,
yet Rev. Roach has the ability to forensically unveil the
layers of meaning and to lay bare the fundamental truths
interwoven in these sublime lyrics. Moreover, he invites
us to pause a little and maybe to give the poetry within
songs a little more attention—hidden as it often is,
behind and within the music.

“Longevity 2.0” (September/October) was a great article
with a unique perspective on the aging process. Dr. Noelle
Nelson’s theories on the impact of positivity are compelling.

Thank you for the story by Eben Alexander
(“Understanding Consciousness,” September/
October). Dr. Alexander’s life transformed, after his
near-death experience, into a deeper understanding
of consciousness. He not only articulates a higher
level of consciousness, but he has also dedicated his
life to helping others appreciate the divinity within
themselves. His teachings melding neuroscience and
spirituality bring wisdom and clarity to even the most
profound queries. He serves humanity by example and
demonstrates to others the infinite possibility to heal
themselves emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Foundation (Highland Park, Illinois)

world, to all of us at DeVorss, and especially to all of her

This whole issue on prosperity (July/August) is wonderful
and very “Unity!” And I love the idea of Thomas Shepherd
doing articles on “Unity Masters.” Thank you for doing real

Thank you for the topic of prosperity in the July/August
issue, and for such wonderful, empowering, and helpful
