Subject: Friendship, Rapport, and ...?

[an excerpt from a message concerning Richard Rose and his Zen techniques]


The only true friend is one who can show another his own thinking. This mirroring cannot be done by plan, or previous agreement, or casual or perfunctory discussion, no matter how good the intent. It can only be done through a system of tension and artificial shocks, as in the Zen technique employed by Richard Rose. While there are other teachers and other methods, it is his method that I find to be most effective and suited to my own particular temperament.
