123-1 Sunday 01/31/1960

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseWe are taught by our Lord Christ that we were born or rather we were created before we were born on earth. In this inner creation we were made perfect. We also recognize that in being created Divine, we have nothing to do with our own Divinity, we gave no work to it, no development, we paid no price for it, it was a great gift. We must think not only from the standpoint of one incarnation, we think from the standpoint and vastness of eternity itself. Discussion of reincarnation.

The Inner Side of Loneliness

134-2 Sunday 07/31/1960

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseAddressing those who suffer from loneliness, Flower makes a distinction between feeling lonely and of being alone or having time to one's self. One can be solitary without feeling lonely. In fact, some of the greatest mystics have been solitary figures in that at times they would withdraw into purposeful aloneness. And all of us need that kind of aloneness in order to be well, in order to be creative, and in order to formulate plans intelligently and such, but this repeated isolation and withdrawal from people is another matter, and its springs are within or rise out of negativity. Flower indicates that loneliness mainly grows out of an improper direction of our feelings and gives instruction on how to climb out of our feelings of loneliness. Above all, she stresses the importance of seeking a stronger relationship with God.

Effort without Ego

229-1 Sunday 08/11/1963

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseIt is tragic that some people never achieve freedom from themselves. They are egocentric from their birth until death. They never know what it is to have something higher than themselves that takes over and channels them. And until this happens they are in a very sorry state. It is so necessary that a man awakens to the full degree and measure of soul consciousness. When he does this he is aware that though his human self is very human and there are parts of him which are limited, there are also aspects of himself which are intoned to intelligence, capability, wonder, excellence, beauty, power, and to God.
