The Value of Newness (014-2 Sunday 12/26/1954)
Flower speaks of the value of looking at ourselves, our relationships, and our lives in new ways, with new eyes. The beginning of a New Year lends itself to doing just that, and it is vital for our spiritual growth. Excerpts...
Assimilation and Reflection upon a Completed Year (099-2 Sunday 12/28/1958)
Flower discusses how we should continually try new and different things to keep our minds and bodies always refreshed and new. Excerpts...
Postscript to Christmas (121-2 Sunday 12/27/1959)
Christmas is such a high planetary experience. It is a perpetual baptism of spirit. Christmas can only be celebrated from the soul. We should deeply consider taking a part of our work for the new year, the promise to love spiritually, think spiritually, and will spiritually. Christmas is aligned to these powers and reflections of spirit. We want only that love which is spiritual. Love which is emotional is prideful, exclusive, it is critical, it is selfish. This day is what the Christ spirit needs to have as outposts of its consciousness. If we become instruments of its force, we may be sure that the power will flow through if we have the instrument ready. Gifts should be given all year, not just at Christmas. Describes a trip to Allentown where she met cousins. Describes the use of a strong archtypal word to help us through an ordeal. Excerpts...
A New Life Begins on New Year's Day (170-1 Sunday 1/7/1962)

The Perennial Transformation (320-2 Sunday 1/1/1967)
In this New Year's Day talk, Flower begins by giving an esoterical translation of one of Thomas Mertonís books that relates to the holy cycle of the year. She talks about the importance of living our lives attuned to these cycles and shares the impact individuals have when living their lives in this way. She gives specific suggestions in how to live our lives in this way, and says we should strive to keep living Christmas daily. We must never leave the threshold of our consecration, our dedication, our gift to the Christ, our worship of the Divine Resources. Excerpts...
Values to Be Derived from Power Tides and Cycles (350-2 Sunday 2/4/1968)
Explains God's cycles of occurrence, regularity, and alternation, according to the Law of periodicity. Outlines the cycles in a day, the 52-day cycles of the year, and the seven-year cycle, .

Hail to Those Who have Achieved Mastership (397-1 Sunday 8/3/1969)
Masters choose one of these areas of service: to help humanity; to become divine couriers between earth and the Solar Logos and help prepare other planets for life in future; or enter into Nirvana for total contemplation, meditation and prayer. There are major festivals in which Masters, Lords and Logi meet to celebrate and to hold a baptism for this solar system that we can scarcely comprehend. In year 2000 will be a tremendous gathering of the Great Ones who inaugurate new seed ideas to feed the Aquarian age. Includes descriptions of, creativity of, and friendships between masters and the requirements if we would learn first-hand from masters. Excerpts...
What All Men May Receive from Christmas (622-2 Sunday 12/19/1976)
Every year you should have grown in the deepening of your recognition of Who the Christ is. And as you begin to know Him, you will realize that He is someone who lives from the innermost and radiates light forward to the outermost in touching us, but He is of earth. Revering and loving Christ and recognizing that Christmas blesses us with many benefits and we have intuitionally to tune in to more and more of the opening of the lens of our inner reception.

Christian Mysticism is simply a method of reverence and devotion to God. It is a path of attainment which leads to the Divine Reality–to first-hand knowing of God. The mystical path stresses the way of Divine union with God through illumination.
The Living Christ is the Lord of Angels and of men and the model of our own becoming. His service is the broadcasting of the Divine Christ Spirit, the light of redemption. His influence awakens in us the Christing of our own natures.
The Way of Discipleship is a way of drawing ever closer to the Divine Presence. It is a voluntary surrender of the entire self to the service of God. It pays great attention to spiritual realities and goals inspiring us toward inner growth.
Meditation and Prayer are the disciplines that most directly draw us Godward and into the inner worlds. During these moments, we consciously purify ourselves of worldly or personal preoccupations and center ourselves wholly upon consciousness of God.
The Angelic Kingdom consists of beings created by God. They, like mankind, press toward the goal of perfection and union with the Supreme Spirit. Angels are purer and more spiritual than man. Their very spirituality readily makes them mediators between Heaven and Earth.
Nature provides healing and enlightenment. When wisely trod, the path to God through nature employs every faculty inherent in man. In nature, beauty shines in all its pristine essence before us. It is for us to newly discover and translate this beauty to our spirits and our senses.
Reincarnation is the realization that life is a school, striving to awaken and quicken the Divinity within us, striving to bring man from primitive stages of unfoldment to that of greater and more glorious awareness.
The life and writings of Flower A. Newhouse are those of a Christian mystic, and her insights into the inner realms of life provide us with a path to wholeness that she called "Living the Life." These teachings are not doctrine, but a practical guide to the direct, immediate experience of God. Flower's mission was also to reawaken humanity to the reality of angels, a work she began with her first book in 1937, and added to in many published writings and in recorded lectures.
