Living the Life

Soul Raising Videos

The Lord Christ pointed out very clearly that following the Christ Way means identifying ourselves now with the kingdom of God. Until we walk in the Christ's course, we worship Deity as though it embodied a state from which we are separated by our human limitations. This is the path of discipleship, which Flower often called living the life. Browse our library of Soul Raising Videos on the topic of Living the Life!

A Probationer

Released February 26, 2024; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, To Be a Good Disciple
Music: Emotional Inspiring Piano and Strings by Morning Light Music

For many lives individuals are on the Great Path in the state of probation. During this period they have such a feverish thirst for knowledge. They go about from one religion to another gathering all the good they can from each they touch, but they keep on going and going because their desire for knowledge is so great.

Love in Action

Released February 19, 2024; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Agape Love and Its Inner Purpose
Music: Emotional Orchestral Main by Alex Bird; Art: The Christ by Heinrich Hofman

There is only one type of love which never disappoints and which never fails. It is not a love that is parent-like. We say so easily that God is Spirit, God is love, but it is love in action, love acting through us, from the Highest Source in us that does the most good.

The Diamond Heart of Humanity

Released February 12, 2024; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Diamond Heart
Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner; Art: The Christ by Arthur Learned

Now a diamond reflects all the lights in the spectrum here on Earth. There are times when it reflects its own white light. It is intended, in the diamond heart of humanity, that all the nations, races, and the creations of life achieve the coalescing of individual diamonds until the one diamond is achieved.

A Touchstone for Christ

Released December 4, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Alchemy and Its Relationship to Man
Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner

A man in a certain congregation who was a Deacon and pillar of the church was moral in every way, but he was mean in his home and among his business associates. He was anything but a Christ-like example of our Lord's teaching of spiritual love. When a new minister brought a living message to each service, it shook the congregation. His message unveiled the Living Christ was here to help transmute the base materials of being into something extraordinary.

The Golden Lining

Released November 20, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Thanksgiving the Giver of Spiritual Joy
Music: Emotionally by Alexbird

I have told you that after the death of my husband, when I went to our cabin in the mountains following his memorial service, I saw a beautiful plaque in my living room there that said, ''In Everything Give Thanks.'' And I don't know how long I stood there facing that, because I knew it was a challenge, and I couldn't feel gratitude in my heart at that moment for Lawrence's passing.

The Purification of Consciousness

Released November 13, 2023; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, Purification of Consciousness: the Gate to Rebirth
Music: Emotional and Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music

As an athlete strives for strength, as a student for knowledge, an ambitious person for success, a saint strives for purity. And because saints are wayshowers, we strive after them. We then will, if not now, come to the time that we will aspire for purification.

Give Ourselves

Released November 6, 2023; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, Self Giving: Love's Secret Treasure
Music: Emotionally by Alex Bird

When we come to Christ and really find Him, the play-acting ends. And suddenly what we began as a player becomes real. There are no more rehearsals and there are no more final curtains. We find that we have become a pilgrim. And instead of being a beginning and end, we have begun a journey that has only a beginning. And that it unfolds with each day.

Choose Constructive Thoughts

Released October 30, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Art of Cultivating and Controlling Thought Power
Music: Beautiful Inspiration by bdProductions

And next to our responsibility for realizing the difference between the constructive and the destructive, do we come to the other aspect, which metaphysics teaches; we need to be conscious selectors at every waking moment of our lives. And so, to be selectors of thoughts which are pure and reach up in every golden moment now to the Presence that confronts one will make of the mental body a form, which is exceedingly beautiful.

The Releasement of Light

Released October 23, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Meet Problems Wisely with Faith
Music: Emotional Background by Ivan Luzan

It's a glorious thing to feel God at work. We often hear from people who are about to have surgery, and they knew that the group was praying for them, suddenly their room became different in feeling. They felt different. It was as though a Presence was around them. Now that was not our praying presences, but it was God's Presence that our prayers had turned on. Our prayers turned us on to be channels for the releasement of that light, but it was God's power completely. We need to remember that when we ask for healing to give God, and God alone, the credit.

Following God

Released October 16, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Authority and Obedience Viewed from the Deeper Teachings
Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner; Art: The Christ by Arthur Learned

The wonderful soul who is pliable and faithful will often be deterred and influenced by those rebels who are filled with the lust for determining their own lives. So, you and I, wherever we are in our placement on the ladder of evolution, have to watch out and decide very carefully that which we will follow.

Our Part to Play at Questhaven

Released September 18, 2023; Insights by Reverend Blake Isaac, 75th Anniversary: The Lord Christ and Our Mission
Music: Inspiring Emotional Piano by ULB Production; Art: The Living Christ by Jessi Chadwell

It is not enough for us here to just believe in God. We are striving to know God as our Lord Christ knew God. In so doing, we are learning to wield the Christos in our own small way.

How We Perceive

Released September 11, 2023; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, What Psychology is Attempting to Achieve
Music: Emotional Piano & Orchestra by Musical Smile

A major interest of psychology is in how we perceive—how we take in information and how we give it interpretation and meaning.

Reverence Is a Catalyst

Released September 4, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Refreshing Power of Reverence
Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner

Have you ever noticed that when you were truly reverent the waste of emotional powers, the debris, all the lowly instinctive things that hammered away at mind and being, were silenced? Because reverence and the wasteful, harmful emotions cannot exist in the same heart and at the same time. When reverence is present, it takes everything in us up to God and surcharges these atoms with the regenerative power.

Video

Life Rules

Released August 7, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Let Us Have a Rule for Our Lives
Music: Inspiring Emotional Piano by ULB Production

In studying the Saints, it has become very clear to us that all of them who achieved anything spiritually had a rule for their life. They may not always have shared it, but it was there. It spoke through their discipline, through their consecration, through their great purposefulness.

Video

By the Grace of God

Released July 24, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Prime Importance of Humility (Part 1)
Music: Inspiring Cinematic Uplifting Piano by Alex Bird

Sometimes in metaphysics persons are given the wrong slant. They are told so frequently of the Divinity within them that sometimes they catch fire with this thought and imagine they have become that, and then they have an exaggerated sense of their own self-importance. All that we are has been given to us through the grace of God.

Video

Rising Above the Lower Nature

Released July 17, 2023; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, The Left Hand of Discipleship
Music: Beautiful Inspiration by bdProductions

The evolution of the world rises or falls, depending on how we deal with the lower nature. This is true of individuals, families, and nations. The power of the new commandment that the Lord Christ gave the world was love and in love is the power of transformation of the shadow. And when we realize that, we now know that we have a tool in our hands by which to deal with it. Questhaven itself, the work of the founder of the Reverend Flower A Newhouse, succeeds or doesn't succeed depending on the extent that each of us deals with our lower nature.

Video

True Security

Released June 26, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Adventures in Faith Class (18 of 20): Inner Peace through Faith
Music: Inspiring Emotional Piano by ULB Production

The third type of security is that which we find in God and our relationship with God. And how true that is because no one is safe or happy or developed until they have come to this third stage of not only needing God, but recognizing and building a relationship that is ever-fresh, that is ever one of deepening closeness. When individuals have this, then they feel secure no matter what the world is like.

Video

God is our Supply

Released June 19, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, A Spiritual View of Stewardship
Music: Emotional Piano & Orchestra by Musical Smile; Art: Jesus by Heinrich Hoffman

So we have learned that God, and God alone, is our supply. He is the mover. He is the one who stimulates us to realize what is going on and our need to share—to throw off our cloak of miserliness.

Why We Are Called the Christward Ministry

Released June 12, 2023; Insights by Reverend Blake Isaac, 75th Anniversary: The Lord Christ and Our Mission
Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner; Art: Christ on the Mount of Olives by Giovanni, The Living Christ by Jessi Chadwell

What does it mean to journey Christward? This ministry has that very thought centered in its name. It is revealed through the lives of its founders. Lawrence and Flower Newhouse exemplified in their living the value of Christ and their love for Him.

The Golden Now

Released June 5, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Golden Moment of Now
Music: Emotional Inspiring Piano and Strings by Morning Light Music

Those who are tried by lack of faith in themselves or the future must learn to not rely on themselves, but express confidence in God to channel this super physical aspect of themselves. This part which is bigger than the tiny bodies they inhabit. It is a super physical Divine Indwelling Self which will give us the wisdom, the peace, the proper words the right action, and the strength for this moment at hand. That we can express in the golden Now our awareness of God's hereness.

Invoking an Archetypal Word

Released May 1, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Adventures in Faith Class (18 of 20): Inner Peace through Faith
Music: Emotional Inspiring Piano and Strings by Morning Light Music

It is very important that we have an archetype immediately available for use to bring us to peace as soon as we realize that our states are becoming disturbed. It is our inner emotional and mental states that are reacting to some moodiness of another or irritability of another or to some worrisome crisis that has arisen. As soon as that happens, we must have a word there that is peace-giving that will act on us right away, and from now on let us be conscious of words that are calming to us.

The Christing of Our Own Natures

Released April 3, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Eternal Resources of Spirit
Music: Emotional Inspiring Piano and Strings by Morning Light Music; Art: The Entry of Christ in Jerusalem by Louis Felix Leullier, The Christ by Heinrich Hoffman

These are momentous days, and we are filled with reverberations that come in from high places and issue from the very heart and spirit of the Lord Christ. He was the greatest initiator that this planet has yet produced. We say at these times, ''Open ye your hearts to the exaltations of the Lord.''

Being Wholehearted

Released March 27, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Our Lives Lack Purpose Until They Are Committed
Music: This Emotional by Sersal Studios; Art: The Christ by Heinrich Hofman

We are our Lord's always. We are always to be serving in His name, and after dedication there cannot be those times of being out of appreciation, out of doing with joy and complete unselfishness that which is done. And if we don't have that unselfishness, and if ever we get full of self-esteem and puffed up, then we are not our Lord's. We're still hanging on to the strings of ourselves.

Video

Steps to Holy Obedience

Released March 13, 2023; Insights by Reverend Blake Isaac, Coming to Self-Surrender Through Holy Obedience
Music: Hope and Light by Illuminations; Art: The Christ by Arthur Learned

So how do we come to holy obedience? How do we find our way and know what to be holy obedient to? The mind often wants a list of directions—a logical rationale of why it all fits. But the soul yearns for the experience beyond thought and beyond conclusions—this is the way of mysticism. It is in finding our own unique way with God—In direct experience with God feeling or intuiting what is right.

Video

Soul Using Us in Time

Released March 6, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Reinforcing Centeredness Within
Music: Hope and Light by Illuminations; Art: The Christ by Arthur Learned

The actuality of being is this Soul using us in time in all of the vehicles. Since all of our bodies are porous, the Divine Spirit which indwells you reaches us through our Soul to all our vehicles. Because of this, our Monad or fiery Self of God is just as much shining through our physical atoms as it is active on its own plane.

Video

Become a Disciple

Released February 27, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, To Be a Good Disciple
Music: Beautiful Inspiration by bdProductions; Art: Master K (c) Jonathan Wiltshire

When we can come to that dedication and that strength to live from the Real within us, then the power that the great Masters know flows forth. Strive yourselves to be that kind of disciple, and when you are, all the truths that you need to know will come to you easily and with greater inspiration and from higher resources than ever in your wildest hopes you thought might happen to you.

Never Count the Cost

Released February 20, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Lessons That Have Been Impressed on Me
Music: Emotional by Aurus Audio

And the last verse my Soul has taught me, ''Never count the cost.'' Perhaps, that's the most important. Don't make yourself a martyr. Don't feel sorry that you have to work so hard, that you have so much to overcome. Don't count the cost.

Love is Christ’s Pathway

Released February 13, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Love is Christ's Pathway
Music: Hope and Light by Illuminations; Art: The Christ by Arthur Learned

How greatly have you changed since you have believed the message of the Lord Christ? Are you greater in the breadth and height and depth of love than you ever were before? Can you say that your love never fails anyone? Of all things in the world that we need the most, it is the spiritual development of love.

Think of the difference between the ways people look at certain things. Of course, evolution is revealed by the state of consciousness we ordinarily use, not that we use in meditation alone, but that we ordinarily use.

As we Have Dreamed

Released January 2, 2023; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Meet Problems Wisely with Faith
Music: Emotional Background by Ivan Luzan

If you don't like your life exactly as it is, you can have it improved. It can be changed. It can become so vital and so interesting, if you will allow God to answer your dreams—to bring them into reality. All you need do is to be in contact with God and to trust Him to teach you how to be the receiver of the good for which you ask.

Our Highest Gift to God

Released November 28, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Man's Gift to God
Muic: Emotional Orchestral Main by Alex Bird

What gift do you suppose the Most High would like best of all from each of us? I think it would be the sincerity of our devotions, the real giving of a gift to the Divine whenever we pray, meditate or light spiritual candles. If we remember the One to whom these tokens are raised, we will be inspired ourselves to lift the gift high enough and surrender it to the ever-watching Presence.

Video

Gratitude is a Magnet

Released November 21, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Thanksgiving the Giver of Spiritual Joy
Music: Slow Emotional String by Orchestralis

Another verse that I like is ''O Lord God, we thank thee that all things work together for good to them that love thee and seek thy will.'' All things work together for good—the testings, the storms, everything, as well as the sunshine and the beauty.

Faith When We Pray

Released November 7, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Value of Creative Faith
Music: Emotional and Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music; Art: Guardian Angels by James Hulbert and Mildred Compton

When we pray, faith carries our archetypes, our shining prayer thought forms, up into the Causal or Soul level. In this glorious superphysical dimension, there is an area called the garden of prayer where these prayer forms lodge. The more earnest and glowing with faith we were when we prayed, the more full of light these archetypes are that leave our auras and go into the causal dimension where they are watched over by tremendous souls.

Ascend the Mountain of God

Released October 31, 2022; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, The Left Hand of Discipleship
Music: Emotional Orchestral Main by Alex Bird; Art: The Living Christ by Jessi Chadwell

Now in the design of the school of life, our Creator set into motion within us two forces. We've called them either the Higher Nature and the lower nature or the Soul and the shadow. God set the goal of life as mastery, which meant that we have to ascend the mountain of God, overcome ourselves, and reach its summit by achieving the condition of being self-emptied and God-filled.

Video

Divine Authority

Released October 17, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Authority and Obedience Viewed from the Deeper Teachings
Music: Emotional and Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music

All through my evolution up to this time I remember being taught by Higher Ones to respect authority. Then authority shall bless you. And it will help you change; it will get rid of the darkness that is still in you. It will correct your consciousness, your habits. Accept it with gratitude.

Video

The Holiness of Creation

Released October 10, 2022; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, Reverence: God's Temple Within
Music: Emotional Inspiring by bdProductions; Art: Planetary Logos of Venus by Mildred Compton

Another important aspect of primitive life is the hearth. It has sacred meaning to all peoples. Among the Vedic cultures of India, the establishment of a fire altar was an act of making a place holy: equivalent, again, to the creation of the world. A reenactment of this creation, in fact, of the time when the earth was formed out of fire.

An Ever-Widening Perspective

Released September 12, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Refreshing Power of Reverence
Music: Cinematic Adventure Epic Main by Musical Smile; Art: Galactic Presence (c) Jonathan Wiltshire

Do you remember when we wanted so much to have our two adopted orphans come home with Lawrence? I must admit we had tears when he wasn't able to bring them home, but at the same time, we knew there was a purpose in it. We were searching for that purpose because God is good. The glorious facility of reverence is that it gives us this ever-widening perspective as we search for God's purpose.

No Problem Is Beyond God

Released July 18, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Adventure of Truth
Music: Emotional Pianos by Sersal Studios; Art: The Living Christ by Jessi Dunn

We should never feel that a problem is beyond us. It isn't beyond God. It isn't beyond our Lord Christ's truth. It isn't beyond universal truth. As we stand facing a strong problem, let us say to ourselves quietly, ''There is in truth a way to meet this situation, to meet it well and victoriously. I will wait in God until the steps are shown me now for meeting it this day, and then I pledge myself to the living of that quality as it has been shown me.''

The Highest Thinks Through Us

Released June 27, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Art of Cultivating and Controlling Thought Power
Music: Emotional Orchestral Main by Alex Bird; Art: The Living Christ by Jessi Chadwell

No one has ever thought highly enough or loved God deeply enough. No one has truly touched the Divine Reality within themselves sufficiently on this earth. For that reason, the goal of evolution still remains unfulfilled, until these are our individual realizations. The mind that is not active in the right way or trained sufficiently is incapable of directing us as we need to walk and grow in order to touch and bring forth the Divine within.

Video

God Keeps Us Humble

Released June 13, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Drawing Closer to God (3 of 3)
Music: Emotional Pianos by Sersal Studios; Art: Creation by Ann Rothan

You might wonder why in almost every retreat we take up this theme of coming closer to God. It is because out of it grows everything else. This awareness of God leads to true faith and keeps humble and true.

Video

Centered with the Soul

Released May 23, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Adventures in Faith Class (18 of 20): Inner Peace through Faith
Music: Emotional and Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music

Inner centeredness would be the next thing to remember after the invocation of God's Presence. Immediately when you say that, the inner bodies become aligned. There is a light which flashes out from the Monadic level from the ray of God innermost. This flashing of light seems to bring all the bodies into proper alignment so that there is a greater reciprocity between the superphysical and the lower level. The lower level can then digest or be more porous to the flow-through from the higher Presences.

The Making of a Diamond Heart

Released May 9, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Diamond Heart
Music: Piano inspiration by Music Runners

A diamond is made by crystals coalescing under tremendous pressure and through great heat. Well, we know that in the spiritual life, don't we? Not everything in the spiritual life or in the undedicated life for that matter is peaceful, radiant, inspiring, and happy. There is a great deal of sorrow, many storms, and tremendous tests. We are forging the diamond heart within with God.

Video

Dwelling in the Hereness of God

Released May 2, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Golden Moment of Now
Music: Emotional and Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music

How often do those who live a busy professional life find that unexpected duties come up and take from them the time that would be allotted to careful preparation of certain work? If one dwells in the hereness of God and does not resist these time taking events but meets them and fulfills them, they may find that they are more productive when they are able to return to the creative task. If we keep the proper state of attunement, we are the most amazed of all individuals because we learn that miracles are unending. That what we were doing before, by so cautiously guarding ourselves, was really limiting us.

Video

Faith Flowing Readily

Released March 28, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Value of Creative Faith
Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner

One of the important things of faith to know about is that unless we are in touch with the superphysical within us, faith will not flow forth readily. And when an average routine day is before us and we want it to be new and different, we have to remember that there are some things we should accomplish before faith has it flow through perfectly.

Holy Obedience

Music: Emotional Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music; Art: In the Beginning by Ann Rothan, Angel of Music by Mildred Compton, Pythagoreans Celebrate Sunrise by Fyodor Bronnikov

Flower A. Newhouse correlates Holy Obedience with self-sacrifice. She says that the call to self-sacrifice is a preparation for duties far in advance of our present stage of evolution. It is a training of the will to follow the Highest Good. It is Holy obedience to the orders of Spirit.

Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner; Art: Angel of the Falls by Don Burson, Venus Planetary Logos by Mildred Compton

Flower once shared: ''I want to tell you something that has made me very, very happy. I had a friend who wrote me recently and said, 'I know you love me, but you don't like me.' And I realized that was true and I felt so badly that I did. But I wrote her and told her, yes, she was right. Then I said I will tell you why.''

The Beginning of Discipleship

Released March 7, 2022; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, To Be a Good Disciple
Music: Beautiful Inspiration by bdProductions

The path of evolution is a very long one, and on it we need so many experiences. Some of them have to do with our outer world endeavors, and our changing relationships in different lifetimes; but the most astonishing and the most promising sight that is gleaned by those who can look backwards is the beginning of discipleship, while on the great path of human evolution.

Music: Emotional Inspiring by Olexandr Ignatov

One of my favorite times of the year to give a talk is September because that is the time that all of the children are going back to school, young adults to college, and it reminds those of us who have completed our formal education that we're still pupils, and we still have learning to do.

Self-Sacrificing Devotion

Released January 3, 2022; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, The Wellsprings of Dedication
Music: Emotional Orchestral Main by Alex Bird

To a disciple, dedication commits us to a cause we aspire to serve and holds us steadfast. It is the antithesis of indifference, or half-heartedness or idle curiosity. Dedication, when it is possessed, takes us all the way. It is single-minded, whole-hearted, unswerving in its pursuit of the high calling of God.

Malcolm Muggeridge answered, ''I am sure there was a Resurrection, but I don't in the least care whether the stone was moved or not removed or what anybody saw. I am absolutely indifferent to that. But there must have been a Resurrection because Christ is alive now. Christ is alive and has been for 2000 years. There is no question at all about that.''

Music: This Emotional by Sersal Studios

I have found over the many years I have lived that if I advise someone with tact, there would be no changes. And as I grow older I am more firm than ever before in saying, ''Now here is your responsibility. This is what you are not doing. This is the kind of man or woman you could be if you overcame your suspiciousness, your littleness, your selfishness.'' And you know, although it hurts the person through and through, it accomplishes the most of anything I have ever done for them.

Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner; Art: Saint Augustine by Antonello da Messina

In the lives of great souls, even those like St. Augustine that began with a very strong desire nature of a lower kind, there was first opacity—that means an obscuring of the physical body. No light shown through. First opacity, and then with his increase of reverence and dedication to God, translucence took place.

In the time of the Christ, He was the greatest soul sent forth to release an impulse into the world. Until that time, all the Great Ones before Him had not taught to love one another unselfishly, they had been taught to respect each other. But to love one another was a different way. Then the teachings went on until it included that kind of training in faith that would teach them how to heal themselves and others.

In every great myth and legend, there is the element of a magnificent cause to be served, a hero who comes forth to serve that cause, and then a supreme test leading to a archetypal confrontation between darkness and light. And out of that confrontation is forged courage, self sacrifice, and all the other attributes of character that make for our Christian consciousness and strengthening.

The Purity of Consciousness

Released October 4, 2021; Insights by Dr. Stephen Isaac, Purification of Consciousness: the Gate to Rebirth
Music: Hope and Light by Illuminations

The consciousness that we achieve with rebirth we call primal consciousness, in contrast to the nether consciousness. Its voice says something quite different to us. It says, ''I aspire to serve.''

Thought Power

Music: This Emotional by Sersal Studios

It takes tremendous integrity to use thought-power wisely. We have to have honor in regard to our thought-world. There are people who remember to speak carefully and according to the truth they are studying, at least most of the time. But when they are alone, their thoughts can be like garbage cans. They can be filled with the rottenness of prejudices and dislikes, discontentment, despair and worrisomeness. Thoughts are entities, and therefore, be very careful what you send out to anyone.

Auras During Prayers

Music: Emotional Inspiring Piano and Strings by Morning Light Music; Art: Master Athena by Arthur Learned

Other things that are important for us to know superphysically is that when people pray their aura takes a new position. It doesn't look at all like the rounded form it does when they are in an ordinary state of consciousness. It begins to look like a pyramid, like a spire. Whenever there are Great Ones passing and They see these spires you can imagine they are interested in knowing what is being said.

Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner

Of all the character qualities, integrity stands nearly at the top of the list of the qualities men most admire and revere. Such individuals are honest. They are exemplary in their moral conduct.

And when such a quality is linked with dedication, it forms one of the most powerful and marvelous combinations we ever observe.

Meditation Expanding Our Thoughts

Released May 3, 2021; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Art of Cultivating and Controlling Thought Power
Music: Emotional Romantic Cinematics by ULB Production

The mental body of a person who is not devoted to God is very dull looking, and the thought images created are quite indistinct. You would not know whether the individual was thinking of a house or a person because the shapes are so irregular. But individuals, who through meditation, have begun to cultivate and train their mind thinks in such a way that the frequencies going out from their aura are iridescent in color. All hues are lighter than those found on the astral level.

Music: Emotional and Inspiring Piano by Morning Light Music; Art: Christ by Heinrich Hoffman

For so long we have had, as human beings, faith posited in the wrong direction. We have had faith in material circumstances, faith in the pressures of the world, faith in negativities, and faith in false evaluations. When we come to our Lord, there is a complete alteration of consciousness that has to take place within us, as we need to become single-minded and single-hearted—''according to Thy faith, be it unto Thee.''

Releasing Fear

Music: Emotionally by Alexbird

Now, during fear, you can lose your identity. You can be so afraid that you forget who you are. And so the one thing, at least, that brings me back from seeing any situation that's terribly frightening, such as when the surgeon told me my husband had inoperable cancer and would live only a few months. All I could think of was: ''Be anchored in God.''

When we try to live the life, we must be aware always that there are certain qualities that go with godliness, that go with the Christ Spirit.

Music: Piano Inspiration by Music Runner; Art: Christ by Heinrich Hoffman

There are two things that a person can do to best reveal their worship of the Christ. One is to work for overcoming or resurrection from the smallness that has claimed us so that we can grow in spiritual stature, grow in inner knowledge and awareness, grow in the power that issues from Christ and the Christing of your own mind. There must be a Christing of ourselves, going on consciously, always.

The Flowing Fountain of Gratitude

Released November 25, 2019; Insights by Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, Thanksgiving and Gratitude
Music: On Meditation by A Music

Gratitude is a Causal (Soul) quality as is love and wisdom, and most of the great qualities. You and I have not completed an act of God's manifestation or creation until we say ''thank you'' with our seven-fold or total being. When we have said it with all that we are, then the archetype has been absorbed into us and we have become more with it and its glorious remembrance and transforming power already activates us and brings about a newness and a transcendence in feeling within.
