Twin Voices

 [From The Rosicrucian Digest March 1946]
When I was just a small child, I had a dream which has kept me thinking ... In the dream there was a strong voice within me, and I called that voice, Soul. There was an equally strong voice without, which I called Life. For a while the two voices, which were both quite beautiful, argued painfully. Soul wanted me to devote myself to meditation and worship; Life insisted that I be sensible and gain all the knowledge along worldly lines that I could possibly receive. Both had their points and I was confused and bitter. Then a voice with a quiet, deep resonance interrupted softly and said, "Life, reach in, join hands with Soul. Soul, reach out, join hands with Life." I felt within me a deep surge of understanding, and I called the gentle voice God.
--Colombe Ruth Edith Dougherty, from "All this Within," The Dove, Fall-1945.
