Springtime’s Festival

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseA new season begins the week after Easter. There is a distinct change is what we are receiving spiritually. We receive from the powers of nature. Nature is an enlightener that can be approached in our gardens or in the wilderness. To learn from nature, we must concentrate on the message of each place. Living in the city can desensitize us, but in the wilderness, we are spiritually reinvested. Trees should be a special love of the spiritual Christian. Nature has lessons for all of us, deep strong, true, creative, ever changing.

The Inner Side of Loneliness

Sunday, July 31, 1960 (134-2)

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.

On May first, she says, 'the great devas stand at full attention, raying out and relaying through to the beings who are younger than they, the glorious baptisms that come from the Planetary Logos. Wherever beings are serving nature, they will on this particular day feel a great call to go to the temple nearest them. The devas then come to the realization as to what is their purpose and what they may do further to help in the work of the Creator through the earth.' She further instructs us how to prepare for deeper awareness of the great intelligences ever present in nature.
