How Peace and War Affect A Family
My Father, Morley Morgana
A Family Story as told by Andrée Morgana
I see things differently from the comments by my nephew, Lance (see below). This is my response:
I am the oldest daughter of Morley Morgana, who got his BA, MA and PhD at Harvard by the time he was 24. My father was a brilliant thinker and one of the Phd candidates chosen to create Napalm. This is something that will live with my father and family for a long time – all the deaths attributed to Napalm…
The way I see it, people are too quick to see one another as the enemy that needs to be destroyed. Peace can only be brought about peacefully, with respect for all the people on the earth. People need to have a meal together, talk with one another, find common ground, and live together from that level.
My father, Morley Morgana did that. Later in his life he became a consultant to a Japanese Corporation. He had a great respect for and honored the men he worked with, and, over time, they in turn considered him a great friend. I think my father found a new way to be with people…peacefully
Where I was in 1942
That photo from Harvard Yard was taken in 1942. I was born in 1944. I have a distinct memory of being above the earth, observing what was happening. Then I had the experience of being nudged to enter the earth quickly, before I was ready, and I plunged forward to enter the birth process.
I was born into a family that was filed with strife. Among those early days there was a Presence at my side from time to time, that was Hayehwatha. When I was two years old my parents divorced and two years later my mother brought my brother and me from Michigan to California.
This print of St Jerome Removing The Lion’s Thorn was on the wall of my bedroom until I left home to go to college. I grew up with a deep longing for peace in my heart.
When I was in high school I went on peace marches and attended an event with Martin Luther King. My term paper for one of my classes was about the influence of Jesus on Ghandi and Martin Luther King.
In 1969 I went to India to become a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation program. Ever since that time I have been teaching people how to experience the peace and happiness within themselves.
I re-connected with Hayehwatha in 1996 in a new way, by learning how to be a Medium for Hayehwatha and also for Vovó Anamalia.
Today the Hayehwatha Institute provides programs to awaken people, to see a fuller picture of who they are, how they are connected to the universe and beyond, and how bring peace to the earth.

These are my nephew’s comments, posted on Facebook, along with the Napalm photo on this post
“Our grandparents were once asked to save the world and they did. Some stormed beaches, some jumped behind enemy lines and my grandfather blew up soccer fields at Harvard till those men had better weapons than the enemy. Thank you for our freedom.We miss you, Guy.”
