Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
Quote of the Day
Sunday June 30th
You know that there is a God-Power at the center of every man's being, a Power that knows neither lack, limitations nor fear, sickness, disquiet nor imperfection. But because you are an individual you can build a wall of negative thoughts between yourself and this perfection. The wall which keeps you from your greater good is built of mental blocks, cemented together by fear and unbelief, mixed in the mortar of negative experience. It is not necessary that impoverishment and pain must accompany you in your experience through life. ~ Ernest Holmes
The outer will reflect the inner.

Our own Soul, our own free Spirit forever says, in bold faith, I am truth, I am God --- Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience. The outer appearance, the cocoon, the hard chrysalis, vibrates when the words of Immortal Soul are spoken silently or audibly, as the chandelier hums when its key note is struck or as the brim of a bell resounds when its hidden tongue hits it. Paganini said he could shake any building by maintaining the note that cause it to vibrate. By speaking the truth to our own Soul or Self, we strike the true key tone to the body of flesh and its mind and emotions. We can speak in silent language or audible words the truths of the transcendental self that cause health, happiness, and helpfulness to radiate; and this speech wakes the Soul type of man to walk on earth. ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins
In the beginning was the word... the logos

The relationship (student/teacher) is always extremely personal and at the same time the most impersonal imaginable. If the teacher ever becomes actually involved, then nothing can be achieved. Often the student becomes hopelessly involved in the personality of the teacher but the impersonality of the teacher always eventually clears this away. ~ Thane Walker (Fourth Way Master)
If a man were able to work on himself everything would be very simple and schools would be unnecessary. ~ Gurdjieff

Chiang spoke slowly... "To fly as fast as thought, to anywhere that is," he said, "you must begin by knowing that you have already arrived." ~ Richard Bach (Jonathan Livingston Seagull
Pray as if you have it already. ~ Jesus (Mark 11:24)

The Path is not so much a discipline as it is a reminder of what you are here for. You are not on a journey to get some where as much as you are receiving the self you have buried within you. ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist
Open your arms and accept yourself

"...the most important aspects of spiritual development is the resounding statement of 'I do not know'. This is the beginning of knowing. Too many people 'think' they know when they do not. This will keep them believing the way they do and will leave no door open for new information because they stubbornly hold onto what they already 'believe'. This blocks any opening for the truth to emerge whereby a 'knowing' can occur." ~ Derek Lamar (The I AM Connection: Journey Into The Template Of Infinity)
Let go of the false to allow the real to emerge within you.

"...it is 'I' leading you through all the fallacies and illusions of the personality, that you may finally awaken to their unreality and then turn to Me as the one and only Reality." - The Impersonal Life
"...it was all the unfoldment of myself as consciousness bringing me to this point of realization that I AM all there is, I AM my thoughts, I AM Truth, I AM that I AM. ~ Derek Lamar
Release the Truth in back of all of the appearances and behold thy splendor. It is I and I AM truly accepting of all that is for I am Eternal. ~ Derek Lamar

Destiny is not under control of our heart. Being is the means of reaching non-being. There is someone who looks after us from behind the curtain. In truth, we are not here. This is our shadow. -Rumi (13th century)
We are the wizard behind the curtain running everything. We are the I AM which is all there is. ~ Derek Lamar
Don't Wait. Plunge yourself into the sea of exhaltation. In order to do that, you must pass out of your self. Plunge into that sea. It will give you life. Once you are annihilated -Rumi (13th century)
We must die to the little "i am" and realize the I AM which is all there is. As we plunge ourself into the sea of creation we discover that it is familiar because it is home. It is life. It is our true life. ~ Derek Lamar
Spiritual death is the letting go of the false self for the real self of Eternity.

The only problems you have are ideas. The only solutions to problems are ideas. Something to think about. ~ Derek Lamar
I D ea. = idea (ID means identify, ea. means EACH, so identify each of your ideas. They are either rooted in "i am" or they must declare "I AM". Every thought you have is an idea which has its own reality that is either based on oneness or duality. Think about it.
Speak the word: "I AM"...... sum, cogito ergo sum: I think therefore I AM. Je pense, donc je suis, I think therefore I AM. Beingness continues...

"The future is not new. It does not go in a straight line but unfolds as a spiral. When viewed from above (a different angle) it is a circle. We are coming full circle. There is something strangely familiar as we look at the old from a different angle. The clutter of all that we have invented and called "new" is not new at all. It is simply the residue of atrophied thoughts, thoughts that have become dense and focused." ~ Pila of Hawaii
See in on his book "The Secrets & Mysteries of Hawaii"
What was old is new again as Infinity continues...

Words always worth reading are the lyrics from Love Song: "The words I have to say, may well be simple but they're true
Until you give your love, there's nothing more that we can do
Love is the opening door, Love is what we came here for
No one could offer you more, Do you know what I mean?, Have your eyes really seen?
You say it's very hard to leave behind the life we knew
But there's no other way and now it's really up to you
Love is the key we must turn, Truth is the flame we must learn
Freedom the lesson we must learn, do you know what I mean? Have your eyes really seen?"
Love Song by Lesley Duncan © 1969 (sung by LesleyDuncan, Elton John and even Peggy Lee among others) It is hard to believe that it has been 33 years. Where is that Grecian formula?
Love continues... to be all there is in reality

"Music does have a power within it to bring about thoughts and feelings simply because of our reaction to it. The lyrics or lack of lyrics mean nothing. There is the power to bring about change within the formula of music and each song is a different formula. This is the difference between "good" music and "bad" music. It is not all subjective. It is not simply what we decide it to be. There is an inateness which exists within each note and in certain combinations and tempos and beats and pauses what can happen can bring a tear to one's eye, a smile to one's face, and also the realization of the infinity of the Divine. " ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist
Harmony continues to flow...

Love continues to ring true...
"You can only apprehend the Infinite by a faculty superior to reason, by entering into a state in which you are your finite self no longer" ~ Plotinus (205-270) Enneads
