Wholeness as an Ideal and Objective

Sunday, January 31, 1960 (123-1)

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 regeneration and reincarnation.

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.

Dreams and What They Can Mean

Sunday, March 31, 1963 (220-1)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseThe fascinating and illuminating world of dream interpretation is explored by Flower. Using the Swiss Psychiatrist, Carl Jung, as a primary source for dream symbols and meaning, many examples are shared of the importance of exploring our subconscious through our dreams. In this way we can further our spiritual growth as well as heal ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Flower concludes this talk stressing the importance of remembering and recording our dreams by saying, 'a dream, which is uninterrupted, is like a letter, which has never been read.'

Effort without Ego

Sunday, August 11, 1963 (229-1)

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.

Let Us Aim for Insight into Ourselves

Sunday, November 14, 1965 (292-1)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseAs spiritual climbers, we are climbing in holy and inner experience. Religion and psychology both reflect that we need to receive insights constructively and gratefully. What may present as obstacles and limitations to progress may, in fact, be lessons and sign posts toward progress. In our personality selves (at the terrestrial level), we must face, with a great deal of labor, the need to want to be whole and freed from superficialities and limitations. Transformation comes as we work on ourselves, practice more self-discernment and, perhaps, study some basic books in psychology, such as those by Fritz Künkel or Carl Jung.

The Persistent Challenge Towards Spiritual Maturity

Sunday, September 12, 1971 (471-1)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseIn this talk, we are reminded that our goal as humanity is to become spiritually mature. In other words, to become masters. Flower says that spiritual maturity is being master-like. It is working upon the achievement of masterhood. It is taking up hour by hour, and day after day, our individual life work, which is the development and the unfoldment of spirituality, depth in consciousness, the improvement of intelligence, and a greater self-giving towards our world.

Morals for Aquarian Age Development

Sunday, October 17, 1971 (475-1)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseA somewhat eclectic presentation about personal and general morality in the Aquarian Age, a portion of the talk refers to The Psychology of Moral Behavior by Derek Wright. This author warns that today's youth will be influenced by four groups: in the family, in the church, in the school and by their group peers. Everyone must respect that which is sacred in everyone else; and he must never, in any way, destroy that sacred spirit, harm it or belittle it. Based far more on a reaction of the mores of “today” (of 1971), future relationships and the institution of marriage are idealized. As to these relationships: unselfishness and courtesy and consideration are given their proper value. Out of our awareness of the presence of the holy, conscience gains influence, and we come to (internalized, as commands) the proper guidance of our lives.

How to Strive for Wholeness

Sunday, August 25, 1974 (562-2)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseAs a Christian it is our opportunity and our obligation to become more whole every day of our lives. In so doing we will have the greatest of adventures. We will almost treat ourselves as if the highest in us which is our soul self were observing the personality self at all times; urging it, blessing it, and encouraging it, to be without the blemishes which mean separateness and to come into the unity which means wholeness. Wholeness comes at the time of mastery.

Interpretation of Visions

Sunday, October 26, 1975 (592-2)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseDifferentiates between dreams and visions. States that all vision rises out of the contemplative mood. 'During vision, the mental body begins to receive not only instruction, prophecy, or revelation, but vision too. The observation is most interesting. You are simply an onlooker. Later you realize that what was given was for your growth and for your blessing. At no time did your conscious mind intrude and create the images that you realized.' Recounts several visions, including those experienced by a patient of Carl Jung; shares his interpretations of these visions.

Sunday, December 7, 1980 (723-2)

Lecture by Flower A. NewhouseRev. Flower A. Newhouse explains that the goal of life is to be balanced, to be able to function through the quality of synthesis, and to be aware of who we are and what we are, and what we are to become. There are so many things that add to our understanding of ourselves, such as the functions of the right and left spheres of our brain. One side with its qualities, is typically more dominant than the other. The more we integrate and balance the qualities of each, we become more whole and complete in God.
