About this title


The following is taken from an entry in SONGS from an INNER SILENCE:


Your times of distress are a signal.
A signal calling for a new substance within you,
whereby you may become a part
of something heretofore unknown to you
in your present plane of living.

These are the times of decision.
Times when you stand at the crossroads,
contemplating . . . Contemplating
whether to follow your inner self to new heights,
or to cling to self's lesser part
that now sees its purpose outgrown.

Your answer, as always, lies within.

And the stress you now feel
is the unnatural strain against development
the heritage of your times
has imposed upon you.

We would entreat you now to . . .

The following is a combination of verses from two different poems in SONGS from an INNER SILENCE.


By that force that in me breathes
to know one wiser hour,
so higher thought with love bequeaths
a waft from wisdom's flower
that we may see all faults of Man
as nothing more than needs
we might help fill within our span
of history's growing seeds.

For there is that in every Man
his heart would have him do
to fit into some Master Plan
a crafted form so true
that he might then so interlace
and share with all the rest
that something more than commonplace
that he of all does best.

The following is from SONGS from an INNER SILENCE as an excerpt from the section called A Student of the Wise Ones:

LOVE, in your time, is given many interpretations,
but may be stated most simply . . .
Love is, "To be at one with . . ."
And, Respect, is its higher form.

Shortly after finishing his medical training, Dr. Lansford had an out-of-body experience, and in the following year, met and became friends with a psychic individual who referred him to the Edgar Cayce Foundation in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the previous home of Edgar Cayce. In the early 1960's, on subsequent trips to the A.R.E. Headquarters there, Dr. Lansford talked with Gladys Davis Turner, Edgar Cayce's secretary who took down in shorthand all of his psychic readings. Dr. Lansford also met Edgar Cayce's son, Hugh Lynn Cayce, and with others, worked on the medical circulating files containing treatments of various diseases as given by Edgar Cayce in his readings. Dr. Lansford also lectured at meetings in the 1960's at the A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach, and at their medical symposia in Phoenix, Arizona in the 1970's.

It was through the influence of my psychic friend and the people at the Edgar Cayce Headquarters in Virginia Beach that I became interested in the quest for spiritual instruction and began to write poetry with a spiritual quality to it.

The poems are so arranged that after the first ten poems, the rest of the poems begin, by their sequence, to tell a story. The exact story is best left up to each reader's imagination.
