"The duality of human consciousness is the division of ideas which presents itself in our everyday lives. We have lazy eyes, dominant hands, and in our demeanor some of us are more intellectual while others are more emotional. Some of us are left brained while others are more right brained. And in our sexuality we lean more in one direction than another. Our preferences are based not only on environmental factors and genetics but the baggage of consciousness which we brought with us when we came into the world. Truth is androgynous just as God is Spirit/Mind. Our politics represents how divided we are as well with both a left and a right wing. But to be in the center is not androgynous. To be in the middle does not join the extremes but rather it becomes an unhappy compromise where no one is happy but the mediocre who are lukewarm and afraid to ever confront the issues of the day. Come forth into the innate nature of who you are which is created male and female. Not one or the other but both just as in the image and likeness of Reality." ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist

Walk toward one's Self as that same Self approaches you

Tuesday August 15th

"Acting and becoming are one. god and I are one in this work: he acts and I become. Fire transforms all things it touches into its own nature. The wood does not change the fire itself, but the fire changes the wood into itself. In the same way we are transformed into God so that we may know him as he is." ~ Meister Eckhart (1260-1327) Sermons

The alternative to Oneness is the division within; or felt as incompleteness

Monday August 14th

"Humility is not thinking or feigning unimportance, humility is serving the Self who is your real identity rather than working to increase that little personality one finds themselves needing to overcome." ~ Derek Lamar, Fourth Way Teacher

Walking faster toward one's Self than they can run away from the Truth

Sunday August 13th

"A man needs to have faith in himself and believe that he is beloved in the eyes of God. Feeling unimportant and distant from God is not humility, and a person should always ask God to be worthy of true humility." ~ Rabbi Nahman of Bratzlav (1772-1811) Likkute Mahoran

Saturday August 12th

"The realization that one is not fulfilled, not satisfied with who they are, feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, lowliness are points of beginning a spiritual path. Though we seek to relieve ourselves from these states of consciousness, still they are often the doorways which compel us to discover something beyond the limited roles we find ourselves in as human beings. Do not be so hard on yourself for finding your footprints in front of these mirrors. They are not reflecting the Truth about you, they are merely reflecting the beliefs you have about yourself." ~ Derek Lamar, Fourth Way Teacher

Through a looking glass into the soul

Thursday August 10th

Monday August 7th

"Chance not the opening of the box from which one's desires are so great they lose themselves. Better to pull back the curtain which lets in the light that reveals their own true nature." ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist

Listening to the hoofbeats off in the distance

Sunday August 6th

"Three of the greatest teachers of the world, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, have left unimpeachable testimony that they found illumination through prayer and could not possibly live without it." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948) Young India

Prayer continues...

"But what is prayer for men such as these? Is it the whining and weeping requests that mankind issues forth when things do not go their way? Is it the memorized incantations which turn a thought into a hypnotic trance becoming a frenzied state of pretending illumination when it is actually the attempt of escaping pain alone and never to venture near the greater Truths beyond? Is it the blind beseeching of nice thoughts for others while one leaves themselves out in desperate humility thinking themselves good because of it thus bringing all focus upon themselves once again? I dare say it is more than this. It is the long walk of anguish, oftentimes, wherein one truly feels their pain but then steps onto the landing dock of the God realm wherein they let go of the lie, the illusion of illness, in whatever form it has manifested, and takes hold of the hand of God as they are pulled aboard the realm of the Divine whence they turn and find themselves face to face with their own Reality of the I AM. Face to face with themselves, God meeting God." ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist

Conversations with the Divine continues...

Saturday August 5th

"I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things. Love a friend, a wife, something -- whatever you like -- you will be on the way to knowing more about Him; that is what I say to myself. But one must love with a lofty and serious intimate sympathy, with strength, with intelligence; and one must always try to know keeper, better and more. That leads to God, that leads to unwavering faith." ~ Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) Letters

Love continues...

Friday August 4th

"Love must always be a sort of dangerous thing. It is an area of risk. The more real the love is, the more willing you are to be honest. The more willing you are to be honest, the more you will be drawn toward the Truth. And in being drawn toward the Truth one experiences a death of the self which is not unlike that of a wilting flower. It was alright for a season and then it is time to go. Not the love mind you, the dishonesty one lets go of as they let go of their own need to be alone. The more we tear down those walls, the less alone we are until all there is is God." ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist

God continues...

Thursday August 3rd

"A single atom of the love of God in a heart is worth more than a hundred thousand paradises." ~ Bayazid Al-Bistami (9th Century) Tadhkirat

Heart continues...

Wednesday August 2nd

"All other feelings write their memories upon glass with crayons. Love writes upon crystal with a diamond. For of all the heart's powers, this alone is sovereign, and, being sovereign, God has crowned it with immortality." ~ Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887) Sermons

Immortality continues...

Tuesday August 1st

Questioner: How can we know ourselves? Krishnamurti answers: "...Through self knowledge you begin to find out what is God, what is truth, what is that state which is timeless. Your teacher may pass on to you the knowledge which he received from his teacher, and you may do well in your examinations, get a degree and all the rest of it; but, without knowing yourself as you know your own face in the mirror, all other knowledge has very little meaning. Learned people who don't know themselves are really unintelligent; they don't know what thinking is, what life is. That is why it is important for the educator to be educated in the true sense of the word, which means that he must know the workings of his own mind and heart, see himself exactly as he is in the mirror of relationship. Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom. In self-knowledge is the whole universe; it embraces all the struggles of humanity. " ~ Krishnamurti

Self continues...
