The folowing writings recently resurfaced in the form of their original hand-typewritten manuscripts from 1973. Finding Happiness (my ascribed title) was excerpted from a talk that Rudi gave mid-February of 1973, mere days before his passing. Dictated Aloft... (again my ascribed title) was dictated to Mimi Shore on February 21, 1973, as Rudi, Mimi, Stuart Perrin, and Beau Buchannan were flying in a small Cessna airplane when they hit the mountaintops above North Lake, NY. These words were literally Rudi's last, ending midsentence with "a deeper sense of surrender..." And finally, an excerpt from Spiritual Cannibalism, Rudi's original version.
You have to constantly relate everything to the simple fact of what you really want in your life. The very nature of a human being is that he's born with the chance to have a choice and use his consciousness. It's the consciousness that sets a flow in the body that represents this freedom. The system needs to be fed by some conscious energy. There has to be a very conscious effort and a very conscious pattern that releases a flow in your system. You really are open to higher energies and these energies are essential to make a human being. You have to feel this flow. A man has to fuel his mechanism.

This thing of sacrifice exists in every kind of religious ceremony. When you find yourself in a situation which is difficult, what you're doing is making a situation completely out of your own mind. You have to overcome this to find a treasure in yourself... READ MORE >>

I am now en route to Glen Falls in a small plane to teach a class in Ft. Miller, New York. The commune there is called ZBS Media. It is a good way to travel as it is six hours by car and only one and a half hours by plane... READ MORE >>
SPIRITUAL CANNIBALISM (EXCERPT)
If there is a harder way to do it, please let me know so I can try it; because it must be wonderful. This is a large part of my philosophy. I believe in digging deeply within myself. I try to find some depth untouched by my conscious mind and bring it to the surface to be tested by my life. This polishes and exposes the grain and I know what my true nature is.
When we love someone, it is the flow of our energy washing away the tensions, much like water washing dirt from gold. The flow of life frees us from the depths of tensions, burying us within ourselves.
I felt this when I was young, and rather than sit inside the mountain of myself, I went out into the river of life. It tore me from myself, throwing me upon the shores of experience. I was slowly washed of my past karma... READ MORE >>
