Belle Burch and Ruslana Korshunova have the same look. My subconscious recognized her in Ken Kesey Square while a musician sang ‘Saint Stephen’s Rose’. When she said her name was Belle I saw the rose that Belle’s father picked from the rose garden of the Beast. I told her about the family name Rosamond which means ‘Rose of the World’.
It is time to finish my story ‘Capturing Beauty’ that has been slimed by everyone I know, and the city of Eugene. You will get what is coming to you. My persecution is just more proof that there exists a Beauty so Divine, that all grow jealous of it when they come in contact with what they can not grasp. The Thorns of the Rose. The Throne of the Rose. The Kingdom of God!

The Vision of the Rose of the World
Andreev’s Rose of the World is a spiritual reality that is promised to manifest as a historical reality. The spiritual reality is the descent into the world Bramfatura of a cosmic being called Zventa-Sventana, the Holy of Holies. Zventa-Sventana is an expression of the Eternal Feminine and She can readily be identified as Sophia. The descent of Zventa-Sventana into the highest planes of Shadanakar began to manifest in history approximately 150 years ago. She is destined to descend into the Zatomis of one meta-culture. Andreev identifies the Slavonic Zatomis as her abode, but recognizes this is not fixed.
The historical manifestation of the Rose of the World is seen as the joining of authentic world religions into a new union. The union will not be the dissolution of the great religions, but a harmonization. The five petals of the Rose of the World are the five great world religions joining together. The Rose of the World will be a moral and spiritual authority rather than a political power, but the influence of the Rose on the world’s political, economic and cultural life will lead to a transformation of human society across the world. Harmony, justice, peace and spiritual life will flower under the guidance of the Rose. The historical development of the Rose will be led by that culture that accepts Zventa-Sventana’s guidance, and Andreev sees that task falling to Russia and the Slavonic world.
The Rose of the World will also lead to the metaphysical construction of a new world Zatomis, representing the highest development of world spiritual culture. Andreev believes this new Zatomis is already being created, as well as a set of planes at the pinnacle of the world tentatively called the World Salvaterra.
The planetary Logos is the Christ, the expression of the Divine Logos. Zventa-Sventana is the Bride of Christ, the expression of the Divine Feminine. This is the nuptial image of the New Jerusalem descending as the Bride of the Logos from the Revelation of St John. Her descent however is not the end of history, but in a sense the beginning of the end. The Rose of the World is a preparation for the end of the current world age, which will require the separation of the world from the powers of metaphysical evil.
Ruslana Sergeyevna Korshunova (Russian: Руслана Серге́евна Коршунова; 2 July 1987 – 28 June 2008) was aKazakhstani model of Russian descent. She established herself as a rising figure in the fashion industry by posing for magazines including Vogue and designers such as Vera Wang and Nina Ricci. Korshunova’s death, which was ruled a suicide, became a longtime controversial subject of international attention.
British TV producer and filmmaker Peter Pomerantsev has theorised that Korshunova’s suicide was related to her involvement with Rose of the World, a controversial Moscow-based organisation which describes itself as “training for personality development”. While researching for a documentary into Korshunova’s death, Pomerantsev learned that the model spent three months attending training session at Rose of the World. These sessions—which encourage participants to share their worst experiences and recall repressed memories—are modelled after Lifespring, whose controversial methods were the subject of multiple lawsuits for mental damages in the US during the 1980s. Korshunova attended training sessions with a friend, Ukrainian model Anastasia Drozdova, who committed suicide under similar circumstances in 2009. Friends of the two women reported changes in behaviour after several months at the Rose. Korshunova became aggressive, while Drozdova experienced violent mood swings and grew reclusive; both lost weight. After three months of training, Korshunova returned to New York to look for work, where she wrote of feeling lost and doubting herself. Rick Ross, head of the Cult Education Forum, argues that organisations such as Rose of the World “work like drugs: giving you peak experiences, their adherents always coming back for more. The serious problems start when people leave. The trainings have become their lives—they come back to emptiness. The sensitive ones break.” Only months after leaving the Rose, Korshunova was found dead.
