Our Inner Being

I believe that these teachings will allow people to finally understand their dual nature. This is the ultimate benefit that will come from studying them. This is a very important understanding.

One needs to know just what is controllable by the mind, as far as body functions go, if the soul is in control of the body. People need to understand that without allowing the growth of the soul to take place they are not much higher on the evolutionary pole than the animals.

They need to understand that in denying this spirit within them they are committing a crime in the eyes of the Creator, who gave them this gift to raise them above the workings of the animal brain. Someday the animals will evolve to the same stage as a human who is not expressing the soul.

When people begin to understand this, they will begin to look at life differently and will be much more willing to stay on the spiritual path of progress. It will instill in them the desire to progress when they realize what they are denying when they do not contact their inner being.

So, to achieve a humane state and quality of life, it truly must start with the education of children as they must be able to contact their inner being, their soul, and hold that contact steady, to hold the desire for the quality of life steady, which then will hold the activities in the exoteric journey steady.

The new philosophy will concern itself with the individual right to grow and progress, each at their own speed. It will start with the schooling bringing forward the inner being of each at a very early age. This will lead to the necessary intertwining of this inner being with the present personality. This is most important

When a person is depressed it is because they are not only disconnected from their inner being, their higher self, but they totally deny its existence. The consequences to one who absolutely denies their inner being can be severe depression. Some people totally deny their inner being, or at least to the point of denying that it is wise or that it had any wisdom at all. Some people become thoroughly mistrusting of it and because of this mistrust, of course, their inner being disconnects from them. What else would it do?

The real you is the combined soul, not just the half in incarnation. The inner being is the half on the inner planes. Sometimes the half in incarnation has not joined with the half on the inner planes. Until then, the work of the inner being will not have the influence that it will in this one’s life after the joining of the two halves. This is why this work does not seem to help some people and it does others. The half of the soul within you has to be found and contact made with it first, then the half on the inner planes will meet up with it and its influence will make a tremendous difference in this one’s life.

My Universe Within

Setting Things Straight

I am not attached to any religion or belief (unless you consider music a religion.) I am a musician and have been for 80 years. I was living what you could call a normal life as a musician – teaching lessons, having my own dance band and being an organist for different churches. I did anything concerning music that came up to earn money to make a living until I was 50 years old. Then things changed in a hurry.

It was my fiftieth birthday and when I got up that morning I decided to celebrate by giving myself the day to do anything I wanted – something that I had always wanted to try and had never allowed myself time. I decided to try to write music. It seems unbelievable that I had been playing piano since the age of four and had never tried to write music of my own. It just never entered my head that I would be able to do this. I didn’t believe I was intelligent enough.

I did not particularly like the first song I wrote. It was titled “Walk, Walk, Walk with the Angels,” and I couldn’t believe I had written it because I wasn’t especially religious – in fact, I was not religious at all. I was a church organist in a paid position and had been for many years in many different denominations of churches. I was always left with the feeling of not being able to believe what all those other people professed to believe.

I shrugged this song off, a little disappointed in myself and tried again. The next one was called “Elisa” and was about a girl singer I knew. This song had several verses and was a very true picture of her. The next one was “Daddy was a Bootlegger” which was about my father and my family and was also based on true facts. The last one I wrote that first day was “When the Columbine Turns Blue Again” and at the time I didn’t know what prompted it. It was set in the mountains where we went to cut firewood at times and the columbine (the state flower of Colorado) would be blooming, so the song was based on true fact in a way, but I couldn’t figure out where the words came from. As I look back now, it seems to be about the other half of my soul that, of course, I had to leave when I incarnated this time.

My Life in Ohio

As a matter of fact, I can remember as a little girl, perhaps five or six, wondering where my twin brother was and when I was going to be able to see him. I called him Norman and told my older sister about him – that I had a twin brother. She, of course, laughed at me.

As I look back on my childhood and early adulthood, there were many things that I took for granted that seemed strange or out of place, to others. For instance, in elementary school, perhaps fifth or sixth grade, we had to write a story for English class. I wrote one about “juke joints,” which I realize now described the 50’s scene exactly, as far as teenage hangouts. This would have been about 1939 or 1940.

It sems I never did anything at the time that others did it as far as society was concerned. I entered first grade at the age of four and graduated from high school at the age of sixteen. Ten years later I entered college. I did manage to get married at about the same time as most other girls of my generation did, at the age of nineteen, but I was thirty-nine when my first and only child, a son Neil, was born.

Now here I was at the age of fifty beginning to write music. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I would leave home at the age of fifty-seven with $60.00 in my pocket to eventually move to California and start a new business.
