Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
Quote of the Day
Thursday, October 31st
From the point of Light within the Mind of God, let Light stream forth into the minds of men. Let Light descend on Earth. From the point of Love within the Heart of God, let Love stream forth into the hearts of men. May Christ return to Earth. From the center where the will of God is known, let purpose guide the little wills of men - the purpose which the Masters know and serve. From the center which we call the race of men, let the Plan of Love and Light work out. And may it seal the door where evil dwells. Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Channeling the inflowing Cosmic Energies of Light, Love & Power

the field of vision ever expand
All this is full. All that is full. From fullness, fullness comes. When fullness is taken from fullness, fullness still remains. ~ The Upanishads ( OM Shanti Shanti Shanti)
...and may its intention forever be infinite

the vision unfold...
Standing in the dark looking up into the heavens at the splash of stars and planets shining out of the pitch black, I pause to realize that out of the many light years away all of this is happening now but the light is from hundreds of years in the past. I am looking into the past in the now. This is what the student does on his or her mystical path, they look into the past in the now. Most of what we must deal with is from the past but it is living now within us. And as we change our perception of ourselves from the past we open up a whole new door to our future. ~ Derek Lamar (Lessons In Destiny)
...and may your destiny come forth

the dance begin...
When the student begins to have light enter into his or her consciousness, there begins a process where discovery of the self becomes more of a dance than a battle. The energy of resistence turns into the flow of spirit and truth unfolds as ongoing discovery whereby layer by layer, the realization of infinite variety is experienced as pure joy and the old self of denial begins a path of responding to life rather than reacting to patterns of past behavior. ~ Derek Lamar (Lessons In Destiny: A Complete Home Study Course In Quantum Metaphysics)
...and the music rises into a heavenly choir.

reality to the self...
To the Huna initiates the invisible and intangible High Self was quite within the power of man to understand, at least it was when the man was well advanced in his evolutionary progress. One can almost hear, in imagination, some ancient kahuna proclaiming at the opening of the first act of the Great Drama of Initiation, "The High Selves exist! This is the great truth. They are REAL!" ~ Max Freedom Long (The Huna Code In Religions)
...and declaring it within reach.

is symbolic of emotion...
Life is a pool of water which reflects everything of Consciousness. We gaze into it and we think we see ourselves. But the selves we see are obscurred by the ripples in the water depending on how disturbed the pool is. When we are quiet and the water is still we can see who we really are. It is then we must dive in and swim and be as One. ~ Derek Lamar, mystic
...and of the birth of all creation

the two become one...
For the student of the West, whose outlook has been more or less affected by this theology of Church-council Christianity, rather than by primitive, or Gnostic, Christianity, there is need to realize exactly how Buddhism differs in fundamentals from modern Christianity. Thus, unlike modern, or Church-council Christianity which teaches dependence upon an outside power or Saviour, Buddhism teaches dependence on self-exertion alone if one is to gain salvation. ~ W. Y. Evans-Wentz, M.A., D.Litt., B.Sc. (The Tibetan Book of The Dead, 1927)
And yet, just as East meets West, it is in the combination of the two, a joining of the Yin and the Yang, a uniting of the left and the right, a merging of the male and the female, by understanding that one must yield to the Self, but the Self which appears, not outside the individual, but seemingly beyond the self, only to let go of the self and to receive the True Self of the I AM. It is here where one comes to the realization that the outside power is not without but within and yet for one small moment, one had to recognize that it was not their then state of awareness of the human self but rather the Divine Self and the joining of the two become a moment outside of time called enlightenment. ~ Derek Lamar, Metaphysicist (author of Man Is Dead)
...Oneness reigns Supreme

The Eternal Flame
"...the Science of the Masters does not permit the awakening of the kundalini until the disciple has gained self-control and mental purity. It cannot be done until that inner cleansing has taken place. This is a vital point. By the system of the Saints all development is attained by a natural, slow growth and reconstruction. It is not a forced process; and for that reason it sometimes takes longer to see the light on this path than upon that of the yogi. But in the long run, this path of the Masters leads upward by a much more rapid climbing than can possible be done on the yogi path, and it leads to heights never dreamed of by the yogi. The student of the Masters unfolds his powers as easily, as naturally, as a flower opens its petals to the sunlight. This path may therefore be followed, and its exercises may be practiced by any one, from childhood to old age. Of course this work must be done under the supervision of a living Master. That must never be forgotten. If any one presumes to go his own way alone... he is foredoomed to failure. If you have all of the knowledge in the world, and have not a Master, you have nothing." ~ Julian Johnson, M.A., B.D., M.D. (The Path Of The Masters, 1939

Dissolving of Reality As We Know It
This is the Kingdom of Heaven --- this, right here --- the NOW. The second coming is actually taking place in the temples of men (ed. within mankind's consciousness)... (the world which is fading away) that world is passing away, it is being disintegrated and re-established as the Kindom of Heaven. The old subconscious mind is being stirred up, and its old habits and beliefs are being put through such a light treatment as to disabuse them of any power whatsoever. You of course have to make yourself as God --- that is the way you were created "In the Image and Likeness --- a little lower than the angels --- given dominion over everything over and under, etc.", that you can begin to see is why you must, as Jesus did, make yourself as God; that is, appropriate your Divinity and the dominion you have over all the foul beliefs that have separated your body and soul. You have wandered into a far land, and it has been full of false things, from which you have drawn your conclusions. But at last you are awakening and are beginning to see --- It is wonderful! ~ Walter C. Lanyon (Without The Smell Of Fire)
Earth is the edited version of Heaven. ~ Derek Lamar, Metaphysicist
On Earth as it is in Heaven. ~ Yeshua (Jesus), Priest of Melchizedek
Consciousness Is All There Is
Tuesday, October 22nd
Thou great Eternal, Thou great unbounded whole, Thy body is the Universe, Thy Spirit is its soul; If thou dost fill immensity, If thou art All-in-All, Then I'm in Thee and Thou in me, or I'm not here at all. How can I be outside of Thee, when Thou fillest earth and air? There surely is no place for me, outside of everywhere, If Thou art all -- if Thou dost fill immensity of space, Then I'm in Thee and Thou in me, or else I have no place. And, if I have no place at all, what am I doing here? Beyond the All, I cannot be, outside of everywhere; Then, truly in Thyself am I, and Thou must be in me, Or else there is no All-in-All, no Thee, no me, to be. But, now, I claim Thy Spirit free, Thy perfect life and Soul, The very thought of this great truth makes me this moment whole; This very hour look I deep, and vision high to see, That Christ within -- the perfect Self -- art Thou! and I am Thee! ~ unknown author
And I am Thee with Thou in me for all Infinity

in all things
Jesus defends his disciples for acclaiming him as he entered Jerusalem. Some Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Master, check your disciples," but he answered, "I tell you, if these keep silence the stones will cry out." As one mentor of mine once said many years ago, "energy will express itself where it will." Thus we see here that all of Mind is one and that holographically MIND and INTENTION of the unfoldment of thought expresses itself as a recognition of the SELF where it will and it cannot be silenced. If it does not speak out here it will speak out there. This is the marvel of the 100th Monkey and of the awakening of the Spirit in Consciousness as we watch this new 21st Century Mind have its way with humanity. Truth will have its way with all of us despite the appearances the world will come together. No stone unturned comes to mind even as a pebble upon the beach is moved and the shoreline of consciousness is changed forever. ~ Derek Lamar
And in Joy I cry out

On These Things
I am both me and what happens to me even if it is only seen by me or reflected to me by someone else. ~ Earth is the edited version of Heaven. ~ Without the risk of failure, there can be no hope of success. ~ Do not stay in the shallow end holding onto the edge, come out into the deeper water where you can swim free. ~ You give power to someone else to bring you misery if you also credit someone else with your happiness. ~ You will learn Truth and the Truth shall make you a stockholder in Eternity. ~ Some people's sense of embarassment is measured by the uninhibited people they come into contact with. ~ How do you keep your finger on the pulse... when the body is dead? ~ Duality: origin of the feces. ~ Prayer is the search for self. What could you ever ask for that was not a part of your unrealized Self? ~ Truth is expensive! It costs so much to deny it. ~ Does rotting cheese have an odor if you're not there to smell it? ~ Even before Mary Baker Eddy, I AM. ~ If out and back is Truth then you get back what you put out. If what is out comes back then what if your back goes out? ~ "Nobody doesn't like not working." (Teacher on strike 10-24-83; where are we by now?) ~ Verily I say to you: it is easier for a needle to pass through the eye of a rich man, than it is for a camel to walk a mile in the kingdom of heaven. ~ Is it a sin to go to a medium when what is well done is so rare? ~ Do you want to know the way you want it to be when the way you want it to be is really what you think you are being denied? Wouldn't you rather want to know the way it really is and actually get results? ~ The answer we seek often appears in the question and the realization that we don't know. It is then, by admitting ignorance, we are able to create a vacuum for knowing. And then the answer appears. Often we pretend to know so that we don't have to change.
~ Derek Lamar
Thinking is the sport of the I AM
Yeah, today IS the beginning of the rest of your life. It is only lame when you don't mean it. But think about it. Be serious this time. Put everything which you want to change into a box on a shelf in your mind. Keep it close to you. Don't let it go. Know that you CAN change all of those things. Start making conscious decisions about everything and know that everything is IN your CONSCIOUSNESS. When you don't like the way something is, remember, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND... it is only in your mind that you must do your work. Don't be afraid of yourself. Don't be afraid of who you really are. Don't be afraid of God. ~ Derek Lamar
What you change in yourself sets others free as well
A man must begin observing himself as though he did not know himself at all, as though he had never observed himself. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Our mechanicalness is what we become aware of and we are shocked to realize how little of the time we are actually spontaneous; rather we spend most of our time reacting and being someone we don't even know just as we discover who we think we are, we don't know either. And if we do, we find that we rarely see that person in our daily activities. But rather than get depressed, it is better that we get well... change is what we must seek. ~ D. Lamar
Change... fighting in the paper bag of our life to be who we really are, whoever that is
What does it mean to be born again? Actually the translation is to be "born from above". It means, as in "As Above, So Below", that one must realize their innate Self of which is Eternal rather than the appearances of who they think they are. This requires a "letting go" or "dying" to the self which is rooted in duality and accepting the true self of the Higher Reality of I AM and giving birth to the Oneness which is, was and always shall be. ~ Derek Lamar, mystic
Oneness is the realization that you are Consciousness and that you are all there is
As in the case of the legendary Phoenix: "One must be born, but in order to be born, one must first die, and in order to die one must first awaken. the awakening can be gradual and occur at first in brief moments, but the death must be all at once and forever." ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Man must die whole. A man may be born, but in order to be born he must first die, and in order to die he must first awake. When a man awakes, he can die; when he dies he can be born. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
All religions speak about this death: unless you die, you cannot be born again. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
We are dying to live forever
The two-edged sword about Truth is that it is like a famous painting whose canvas has been painted over by some unimportant artist with an uninteresting portrait while all the while the original exciting valuable artistic endeavor waits silently beneath the surface. One must painstakingly remove the picture which is on top and in order to do that one must carefully focus on that painting in order to remove every bit of it. In the end the masterpiece is revealed but not without the pain of having to exorcise the canvas of its intruder, its false face, the self which has obscurred the real meaning in back of the appearances. In back of this false creation is the fundamental reality which is not of the imposter. Of the many layers you find these are not the real painting, what it is resides at the very core of the canvas waiting to be revealed. In back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality. Of the many roles you play in life these are not your real self, what you are is consciousness which is not of the many roles you play. ~ Derek Lamar
Consciousness... the palette of infinity... the color of reality
It is the removal of the many roles which obscure the face of God which becomes the artistic endeavor. It is the removal of the stone to discover the statue waiting deep inside the rock crying to come out. Let go of the false self and embrace yourself, you are whole, complete and perfect. ~ Derek Lamar
Words of truth are images and likenesses of the Self-conscious, Supreme Being, taking the aspect and appearance of humanity in the true world... The real Mind is the only mind. All humanity has one mind, one beautiful, perfect, omipotent, irresistible Mind; and this Mind expresses itself, demonstrates itself, understands itself, by the manifestation of itself as humanity. Humanity is the understanding and action and manifestation and existence and self-consciousness of this Self. ~ George Edwin Burnell (Sensing the Light by Mary Burnell Flambeaux)
Infinite Mind... think about it
Thinking of the Universe in terms of light, frequencies, and energies of different frequencies -- in the terms that have become familiar to us through the study of physical light -- is not merely metaphorical. It is a natur and powerful way to think of the Universe because physical light is a reflection of nonphysical Light. ~ Gary Zukav (The Seat of The Soul)
Physical light is not the Light of your soul. Physical light travels at a certain velocity. It cannot go faster. The Light of your soul is instantaneous. ~ Gary Zukav (The Seat of The Soul)
To realize one's I AM is to stand in the Light which is the Nowness of Reality. I AM the Way, the Truth and the Light. This is to know inside that you are the doorway to Ultimate Reality and the Light which dissolves all shadows in consciousness. Light does many things. It brings out the beauty of all things by making visible that which might otherwise be unseen, and along with that quality is the effect of creating shadows through which one can directly trace where something is in the way of the Light and thus casting a shadow. I am speaking metaphorically here as well as literally. In this way one can use the shadows around them, all within one's consciousness, to discover more about themselves and to do the necessary work to truly release the Light within and keep this eternal life force unblocked. ~ Derek Lamar (author of The I AM Connection: Journey Through The Template of Infinity)
I AM the light of the world; anyone who follows me will not be walking in the dark; he will have the light of life. ~ Yeshua (Jesus) John 8:12
Light is the idea which implies that it is a substance which makes things visible, but in Truth, Light is the degree of openness which allows one to perceive oneself.
What is truth? Truth is that which does not contaminate you, but empowers you. Therefore, there are degrees of truth, but, generically, truth is that which can do no harm. It cannot harm. Higher self connecting to nonphysical teachers produces a level of truth that is true not just for you, but that would be true for anyone who came into contact with it. If you subtracted everything that is personal to you from the guidance that you receive through intuitive channels, there would remain a kernel of truth that would apply to others, or, at least, the presence of unconditional love, whereas much of the information that you receive through your own intuitive process will be effective only for you. This is the difference between personal truth and impersonal truth. They are both truth, but personal truth is yours, and impersonal truth belongs to all that is, to each person. We need truth to grow in the same way that we need vitamins, affection and love. ~ Gary Zukav ( The Seat of The Soul)
Oftentimes one's own truth is what they believe in but not necessarily what operates in back of time, space and change. It is far better to integrate our own personal truths with the impersonal truths so that the impersonal truth of Oneness be made manifest in our lives. ~ Derek Lamar, Quantum Metaphysicist
Truth is that which is so... let it begin with me
There is but one Being: one student, one teacher, one Mind, one soul, one Spirit, one Self, one I AM. This is the supreme knowledge. This is the supreme experience. And we are entitled to act sternly because of our devotion to this spectral entree. For if you would enter the Kingdom of Heaven that is into this world descended, let down like a City, four-square and beautiful; if you would enter, I offer you the door, the only door possible. It is called non-existence. If you cannot come through that door, how can you come with me? And if you will not believe that you have come through that door, since no one can go through any door of non-existence; there isn't any such thing! But if you can believe that you have come through it, that is sufficient. ~ George Edwin Burnell, 1923 ( Selections from The Chronicle of Reality)
And this non-existence is the infinite existence which is all there is
I cannot develop you; I can create conditions in which you can develop yourself. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Do not believe what I say. Prove it to yourself. ~ Thane of Hawaii
I cannot teach you anything. I can only provide you with the opportunity for growth by sharing what I have discovered, learned, and realized. ~ Derek Lamar
You must have your own realization, prove it to yourself. Conclusions must be yours. Revelation is at your fingertips.
When one witnesses all around them order in the Universe, when viewing the symmetry within nature, when stumbling upon infinite diversity amidst the infinite connections, when everything is different and yet one, when beauty in science, nature, philosophy, art, the galaxies, the infinite variety of colors which all depend upon each other, when separateness is understood as perception rather than reality, when Oneness is realized as Reality rather than the tricks of perception, when all of this comes together in one fell swoop, then enlightenment is but a memory away. For you have known this all before and finally are remembering it again. ~ Derek Lamar, mystic
Randomness is but the infinite variety which maintains the zen-like quality of reality as different and yet the same, infinite and yet one
The healing process is not one of change, it is one of realization. It doesn't matter if it is a healing of the body, or a healing of the mind, or a healing of the heart, or a healing of the soul. One does not "do" something, rather they must shed their beliefs in change and open up to knowing the Truth about what they believe their problem to be. ~ Derek Lamar, Fourth Way Teacher
Rise and be healed... raise your consciousness, change your viewpoint, alter your perspective... do not change your world, change your consciousness of it
There is so much talk of UFO's in certain circles. What does this mean to us on our path? Are we not looking above for answers. Is not the heavens the archetype of spiritual birth? It is natural that at a time when mankind in general is undergoing tremendous change that there be an external manifestation of ourselves as we might perceive of it in the future. Aliens, angels, demons, inner earth civilizations? Who knows? But still we must focus on our own growth and know that all things will fall into place in their own time as it reflects the Universal Goal of Intention. Reach out to the Self of your Future and invite it into your Soul. ~ Derek Lamar, Fourth Way Master
Look up, it's a bird... a plane... no, it's Supra~Man
When asked what he thought the difference was between men and women, Gurdjieff said: "In general, men have minds more developed; women, feelings more developed. Men are logical, women are not logical. Men should learn to feel more, women to think more. You must think, feel and sense a thing before it can become real to you."
A spiritual quest is to arrive at the balance of male and female in perfect androgyny
"In the beginning, male and female, created he them."
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you. ~ Maori proverb
Stand directly under the light and look up and there will be no shadow. ~ Rama L. Kered, mystic
Seek out the shadow and remove what is blocking the light and you will be in the light. ~ Derek Lamar, PSI~chologist
A shadow is the absence of light, but light is not the absence of anything for it is all there is
Faith does not offer the slightest support for a proof of objective truth. Here the ways of men part: if you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire .~ From a letter to his sister (Bonn, 1865), by Friedrich Nietzsche (contributed by Judith Bailey, author)
To believe is to have hope and with that comes its friend doubt. To know is to have confidence and with that comes surety. Better to know and have that work for you in your world than to wonder and only have it appear in your dreams. ~ Derek Lamar, Ontologist
To know is to be set free ~ Truth is the only thing you will really ever own and you can take it with you

...the question of the existence of God can be neither asked nor answered. If asked, it is a question about that which by its very nature is above existence, and therefore the answer -- whether negative or affirmative -- implicitly denies the nature of God. It is as atheistic to affirm the existence of God as it is to deny it. God is being-itself, not a being. ~ Paul Tillich
Thus if God is Being, then God is, God BE. Thus to study this one would want to study Being and then they would need to engage in the science of Being or ONTOLOGY. Welcome aboard. But is it not of necessity to believe in God, which would be at the very top of all existence, if there were existence at all, thus there must be a top, therefore anyone who agreed that they exist would also agree that there must of necessity be a God, or Being. If there is no Being, then you cannot Be, you cannot exist. And you must exist in order to even believe that you do not. Thus God is. Now what God is must remain a mystery until you study Ontology. Again, welcome aboard. ~ Derek Lamar, Ontologist
Cogito Ergo Sum ~ Je Pense Donc Je Suis
I Think Therefore I Am

understand, things are as they are. If you do not understand,
things are as they are.
- Gensha, Zen Master
As Above, So Below. ~ Hermes Trismegistus
If you see the Above in the Below, things are as they are. If you do not see the Above in the Below, things are as they are. Things are as they are in the Above despite what we may perceive. We never really see the below. We only see the Above. But we view it through our filtering system and it appears different. But the appearances are ours alone and have nothing to do with Truth. For even in the face of the illusion, things are as they are Above. ~ Derek Lamar, mystic
If you do not understand, keep listening, eventually the voices will rise above the orchestra and the message will be heard

and winding road that leads to your door,
Will never disappear,
I've seen that road before It always leads me here,
leads me to your door.
and windy night the rain washed away,
Has left a pool of tears crying for the day.
Why leave me standing here, let me know the way
Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried
Anyway you'll never know the many ways I've tried, but
Still they lead me back to the long and winding road
You left me standing here a long, long time ago
Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to you door
The Long And Winding Road (Lennon/McCartney)
The doors of perception, crossing that threshold, that line which marks the world we know and the world we want to know. As above so below, the door will open and you will know
