We are happy to present to you a collection of the best stories Torkom told in his many lectures and writings to illustrate special lessons to be learned. In the longstanding tradition of storytelling, Torkom would tell and re-tell stories, often creating them on the spot, embellishing and changing them to fit the occasion or borrowing from other storytellers and fables and classic tales…
Torkom deeply understood the creative process and Torkom’s stories are his creative labor. Torkom says, “When I was a boy my mother read a story which I have never forgotten.” He understood that stories have a powerful and lasting impact on our hearts and our minds. Storytelling, memorized elaborate stories spoken aloud, was the most effective means of education before the advent of the written word and widely available books.
Torkom’s stories always have a message behind them–something he wants us to understand and remember. Of one of his stories he says, “This simple story portrays the principle of self-control, the principal of sublimation, economy, and the meaning of purposeful love. Let us remember that the purpose of love is to take us back to Divine Unity, into the Cosmic Magnet. This being the case, each act of love must be a step toward Home.”
Our human nature is wired for memorizing stories, telling stories and re-telling stories. The art of storytelling and the stories and fables of a culture define that culture for generations. Torkom writes, “The stories of powerful, omnipresent, omniscient, and creative Gods were the main incentive of the progress and striving of many races.”
Not only did Torkom understand the power of a good story, but he was also a master storyteller. His stories take you to places all over the world, both outer worlds and inner worlds. Travel with him this summer with this extraordinary collection of stories. He told not to entertain, but to make a point and to take his audience into a higher vibrational level so that his point was easily understood.
