The Positive Life

Sunday, March 1, 1959 (106-2)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseFlower describes the Christ Ideal. She tells us that it is not enough to believe in a Deity, but we must strive to know God. She says that religion should make a difference, so much a difference that Christians should be known as Christians even though their names might not be known. They should express something, be far more tolerant, far more inspired and joyous and interested and outgoing and self-giving than are those who merely assent to God's Presence. Through descriptions and examples she guides us to follow the way of Christian Mysticism and reminds us that everyone who claims to love God has the great challenge to prove it by his or her living.

Christian Mysticism (3 of 3): Conclusion

Sunday, July 17, 1960 (133-2)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseFlower explains that man can experience reality if he prepares himself in order to do so. The way of mysticism begins in a longing for God to be known directly. When an individual Christian takes up his Lord's challenge personally, he comes to the third phase of Christian mysticism, self-surrender. From self-surrender he moves to a fourth experience, consecration. All that matters is sincerity for the life practice of Christ's holy channelship, is that God is to be all-in-all.

What Should Be Known About ESP?

Sunday, October 17, 1976 (618-1)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseMan possesses seven senses, though in this dimension he usually only employs five of them. The more truly trustworthy the clairvoyant individual is, the more he will express both objectivity and humility, and simplicity, or modesty. Clear seeing, when expressed from the background and through the means of Christian mysticism, will be a safe procedure, but without it one is not safe if he has not been well trained and watched by a higher teacher. When he has the training of the initiate and of the mystic, he will be oriented to Divine Good. The openness between worlds is very real to one who is in earnest. Always be in earnest, with joyfulness accompanying your sincerity.
