Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
January 2005
Quote of the Day

 
 
JANUARY 31 ~ MONDAY
Each man has only one genuine vocation ~ to find the way to himself. His task is to discover his own destiny ~ not an arbitrary one ~ and live it out wholly and resolutely within himself. Everything else is only a would-be existence, an attempt at evasion, a flight back to the ideals of the masses, conformity; and fear of one's inwardness. ~ Hermann Hesse
 
Right relationship means right relationship with the elements, the land, the sacred directions. The seed of pure mind is within all people. It is always there.  It is not made impure. Our actions may be impure and set up a stream of reactions,

but always we can come again to the seed of pure mind and right relationship. It is time now for people to choose. 

The first step is to see the power of your own consciousness. The common kernel is care for all beings, good relationship, cycles of reciprocity, generosity, giving of oneself, being an empty bowl so you can know what is. ~ Dhyani Ywahoo
 
If a man carefully examine his thoughts he will be surprised to find how much he lives in the future. His well being is always ahead. Such a creature is probably immortal. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
You are then, you are now, you are forever
 
JANUARY 30 ~ SUNDAY
I have been asked whether or not there is a way to change the past. It seemed to be a peculiar request but then I realized that he felt guilt from something which happened in the past. Rather than change the past to eliminate the guilt, it would always be best to realize that one can let go of their guilt. Not only did he feel guilty but by wanting to change the past to alleviate his guilt he proved that he really believed that he was actually guilty of something awful. I said that we cannot change the past but we can change how we perceive the past. The past is only what we think about it. Clearly we must be as close to the factual reality if in effect we are to realize Truth in its highest sense. It is not enough simply to convince ourselves of some happy story because that would only be the action of denial which would be the hammer putting another nail into the coffin of guilt. Nothing ever really happens that is to be understood as negative that is based on a full awareness of all of the circumstances. We think this happens but it does not. Because if we were aware of all circumstances this would indicate that our awareness of ourselves and of God were complete and thus nothing negative would happen from that. This is why ultimately we are all innocent of past deeds even though sometimes people need to pay a price for the actions they have taken. In the eye of God we are perfect because God knows only perfection. Is God stupid? No. We are in the sense that if we saw the Truth completely we would only see perfection as well. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
You are the author of your past which is the blueprint for the future.
 
JANUARY 29 ~ SATURDAY
What is a victim? You are being victimized whenever you find yourself out of control of your life. The key word is CONTROL. If you are not pulling the strings, then you are being manipulated by someone or something else. You can be victimized in an endless number of ways.
A victim as described here is not "first of all" someone who is taken advantage of through criminal activity. You can be robbed or swindled in much more damaging ways when you give up your emotional and behavioral controls in the course of everyday life, through forces of habit.
Victims are first of all people who run their lives according to the dictates of others. They find themselves doing things they really would rather not do, or being manipulated into activities loaded with unnecessary personal sacrifice that breeds hidden resentment. To be victimized, as I use the word here, means to be governed and checked by forces outside yourself; and while these forces are unquestionably ubiquitous in our culture, YOU CAN RARELY BE VICTIMIZED UNLESS YOU ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN. Yes, people victimize themselves in numerous ways, throughout the everyday business of running their lives. ~ Dr. Wayne W. Dyer PULLING YOUR OWN STRINGS (Dynamic Tehcniuqes For Dealing With Other People And Mastering Your Own Life, 1977)
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the love in my life... my wife, Nancy Lamar: a lover, a partner, a friend, a seeker of Truth, a door, a wall, a mirror, my faith, my hope, my fear, my challenge, my incentive, my fulfilment. We have always known each other and we always shall.
You are the author of the greatest script there ever was... Life
 
JANUARY 28 ~ FRIDAY
We come now to a consideration of voluntary suffering --- suffering that we are willing to take on in order that our own lives can be fully realized and in order that the world may be fully realized. But these are acts of creation, and creation involves risk --- a painful dying to who we are now, a sacrifice of the known so that the unknown, uncertain new can come. This is why we do not change very often. Those who participate in change must participate in death, burial, and resurrection. ~Elizabeth O'Connor (Our Many Selves: A Handbook For Self-Discovery, 1971)
 
Gurdjieff talked about conscious suffering. This is to become aware of the self, the human self, and all of its pains and subconscious discomforts emotionally which control the self, but to observe this from your awake "I AM" self. This is the beginning. To view the faults but not to let the earthquake shake you. To use self-observation but not to identify with the person your subconscious thinks it is. In this manner you can begin to awaken. You do this by realizing that this is not your real self, because what you are is mind, consciousness, which is not even connected to the appearances of what you might perceive, what you might observe. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Rise up above the subconscious mind and enter into the Kingdom
 
JANUARY 27 ~ THURSDAY
The moon was at a weird angle that night. It looked like it had been cut in half. But the sky was clear and warm with a Santana breeze blowing through. I got a phone call that something crashed 5 miles outside of town but I wasn't the only one who was checking it out. There were three helicopters positioning themselves like a triangle over the entire area. There was some smoke in the distance. A couple military vehicles passed me going about 70 miles per hour and I knew I wasn't going to get anywhere near whatever this was. I knew this canyon pretty well and took a dirt road toward the North where there was a piece of high ground that would give me a good observation area. I was there in about five minutes. I remembered my binoculars this time but as I raised them to my eyes someone put a hand on my shoulder. I wanted to scream but I couldn't make any audible sounds. Suddenly I felt very calm as I looked into the eyes of this man, about my height, but with a slight glow all about his body. I heard him say: "Don't be afraid." But his lips didn't move. I then realized I was hearing it in my mind. Roswell was a simple part of the Southwest but this seemed to be a whole new adventure for everyone, that's for sure. "Who are you?" I managed to actually ask with my voice. "I am Bernaar. We are from the Phelandes quadrant. We are not from your planet," he responded. "What is it that you want on this planet?" I said nervously. I didn't know what to ask. What he said really shocked me. He said, "I am here, with my friends, to bring a new spiritual understanding to the people of Earth. It is our understanding based on previous visits and mathematical computations that this planet is undergoing changes of the mind, of consciousness, and that many are ready for a new understanding of the universe and of themselves." I asked if it had anything to do with God, was that what he was talking about and he smiled and said: "It does, but something more than that. It has to do with a new understanding of what God is and what Man is and how connected they are. It has to do with a new understanding of reality itself and how the appearances of our everyday lives were very misleading compared to what real reality is but that our current reality was a projection of the belief system we were currently operating under. As quick as he had appeared he was gone. I began to wonder if he was ever there at all. ~ James Atherton (Among Us, 1950)
Be not afraid, for I AM with you always
 
JANUARY 26 ~ WEDNESDAY
The ability to perceive or think differently is more important than the knowledge gained. ~ David Bohm
Suppose we were able to share meanings freely without a compulsive urge to impose our view or conform to those of others and without distortion and self-deception. Would this not constitute a real revolution in culture? ~ David Bohm
If I am right in saying that thought is the ultimate origin or source, it follows that if we don't do anything about thought, we won't get anywhere. We may momentarily relieve the population problem, the ecological problem, and so on, but they will come back in another way. ~ David Bohm
Then there is the further question of what is the relationship of thinking to reality. As careful attention shows, thought itself is in an actual process of movement. That is to say, one can feel a sense of flow in the stream of consciousness not dissimilar to the sense of flow in the movement of matter in general. May not thought itself thus be a part of reality as a whole? But then, what could it mean for one part of reality to 'know' another, and to what extent would this be possible? ~ David Bohm

Thinking is the best way to travel ~ Moody Blues
 
JANUARY 25 ~ TUESDAY
It is a rather an ironical situation, for the evidence of psychical research has brought to us a recognition of the vast sweep of Mind, of its extraordinary powers not tied down to one point of time and space, and in doing this has shown it to be most improbable that Mind depends on matter for its ability to exist and function. Never has the survival by Mind of the death of the body seemed so probable, on the basis of evidence, yet never has conclusive experimental proof of survival been so difficult to secure. ~ Raynor C. Johnson (The Imprisoned Splendour: An approach to reality drawn from the field of mystical experience, natural science, and psychical research, 1953)
 
It is problematic that if the conclusion one wishes to seek is based on a reality which is not real, then it will be next to impossible to come up with any sort of proof of anything other than a confirmation of something we already take for granted whether it be true or not. Reality is not matter and to assume that the Universe is matter requires a science based on matter in order for any conclusions to be formed. If a science could realize that "Reality" is Beingness or Mind or Consciousness or Spirit then we could pursue then an understanding of our belief in materiality based on the Higher Level of expression of Consciousness. It should at least be acknowledged that even in our science, it is only what we discover and know to be so within our mind which is available for us to work with. Even if we utilize what we call substances, what we "KNOW" about them is but thoughts within our mind. We do not know it until it is a thought. It is consciousness. When it rains we feel wetness upon our hand as we extend it out the car window but do we know the rain or the thought about it within our mind? When we put that drop of water under a microscope is not what we discover but thoughts within our mind? Our mind is not in our world but rather the reverse, our world is in our mind. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
When you look at life, think about it
 
JANUARY 24 ~ MONDAY
Every day can bring about an awakening. Even if it is merely the observation of one's own shortcomings. There is no purpose however in viewing your own shortcomings if you are not already convinced that you are more than that. One can confront themselves and say "I see the appearances of who I believe myself to be but who I AM is the I AM which is all there is as MIND."
~ Dr. Derek Lamar
If you can be honest only with yourself, go for it.
 
JANUARY 23 ~ SUNDAY

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
--Buddha Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.
--Buddha Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
--Buddha
Now is never too soon
 
JANUARY 22 ~ SATURDAY

Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them! ~ Richard Bach (Illusions)
One who pursues revenge should dig two graves. ~ William Shakespeare (The Merchant of Venice)
So this Christ Consciousness which is the foundation of perfect thought, our own True Self, cannot be broken, since to break means to separate
and Reality is ONENESS and INFINITE therefore separation is but an illusion (error as opposed to Truth). ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The truth only hurts when it is revealing a lie
 
JANUARY 21 ~ FRIDAY
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; If he betrays you twice, it is your fault. Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people. He who loses money, loses much; He,who loses a friend, loses much more; He, who loses faith, loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, But beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself. Friends, you and me.... You brought another friend.... And then there were 3.... We started our group.... Our circle of friends.... And like that circle.... There is no beginning or end.... Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
 
Today is the gift we give to ourself from ourself
 
JANUARY 20 ~ THURSDAY

Reach down so far into yourself that you can see yourself on the other side because that is who you really are. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar

Who are you today if you are think that tomorrow is going to be like yesterday?
 
JANUARY 19 ~ WEDNESDAY
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Matter begins to end as the rocks cry out. The voice, the word, the thought whispered in private thoughts about eternal things... rings for an infinity as immortality taunts us with visions of everlasting love. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I believe in the immortality of the soul because I have within me immortal longings. ~ Helen Keller
I never saw a moor, I never saw the sea; yet know I know the heather looks, and what a wave must be. I never spoke with God, nor visited in heaven; yet certain am I of the spot as if the chart were given. ~ Emily Dickinson
I closed my eyes and wondered if it really could be true. I breathed in deep my secret to keep between myself and you. I knew that I would surely explode if never could I tell. But at last I spoke those wondrous words that yes I AM as well. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Poetry is the oil upon the wheels of reality
 
JANUARY 18 ~ TUESDAY
"In order to approach this system seriously, people must be disappointed, first of all in themselves, that is to say, in their powers, and secondly in all the old ways. A man cannot feel what is most valuable in the system unless he is disappointed in what he has been doing, disappointed in what he has been searching for." ~ G. I. Gurdjieff (In Search of the Miraculous by P.D. Ouspensky)
"But if he continues to think that he is able to find anything on his former way, or that he has not yet tried all the ways, or that he can, by himself, find anything or do anything, it means that he is not ready." ~ G. I. Gurdjieff (In Search of the Miraculous by P.D. Ouspensky)
"Being disappointed in one's self, however, is not enough, though it is the beginning. One must be willing to do Work. This Work may only be a conscious willingness to desire to change but the desire to change is paramount. Otherwise this well-meaning dissatisfaction will merely turn into a morbid lifestyle for someone who wishes to continue avoiding life itself. A lot of people are dissatisfied with themselves and they will talk at you for hours about it. But a sincere desire for change must accompany this emotional moment and together Work can begin. Real dissatisfaction brings with it a desire for change. People enjoy suffering because they live off of pain, they get attention out of it, they use it to feel they are earning their existence in life, or they are achieving saint status or brownie points with God. Jesus would and did say in Matthew 6:5...
"...they love to say their prayers standing up in the synagogues and at the street corners for people to see them. I tell you solemnly, they have had their reward." And you have had your suffering. Now it is time to move on to another "brand" of suffering which truly has a reward worth "suffering" for. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Gurdjieff, Fourth Way and Esoteric Teaching)
Conscious "suffering" is the pain of letting go
 
JANUARY 17 ~ MONDAY
Martin Luther King, Jr. represents an unfoldment of mankind, of humankind, and that this civil rights consciousness is an awareness of our own realization of Godness within each of us, for others and ourselves, as we begin to recognize that equality eventually will reveal the Oneness which is at the root of this rising state of knowing. I have a dream means that the absolute template of acceptance goes both ways, all ways, for everyone. This realization has to do with all aspects of diversity and ultimately will reveal saneness and mental health and a true option for everyone. This is enlightenment. The Promised Land is the realization of the Kingdom of Heaven within and in that state of consciousness there is no color which is unknown or foreign to oneself for thou art ALL. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
God is Truth ~ God is All ~ God is One
 
JANUARY 16 ~ SUNDAY
The word Tao means the Way, the Way of Heaven, the Way of Nature, the Way of Taoist living. But as the name of the philosophy and religion of the Tao, it has come to mean the universal cosmic energy behind all creation, omnipresent, impersonal and eternal. Its action is silent, almost unnoticed. "All things spring up without a word spoken," said Lao-Tse, and one hears nothing of claims or assertions. If the government of men could proceed in that sure, silent way, this would be a beautiful world. The nearest to a definition Lao-Tse gives is "The Tao that can be known is not the absolute Tao. The names you give it are not the ultimate names." "Conceived of as having no name, it is the Originator of heaven and earth. Conceived of as having a name, it is the Mother of creation." ~ Henry James Forman & roland Gammon (Truth Is One, 1954)
YHWH, that sacred name of God which cannot be spoken, cannot be known
 
JANUARY 15 ~ SATURDAY
There are some things which we are to do ourselves, but there are others which God does not expect us to do. (When I speak of ourselves as something apart from God, I simply mean our conscious selves. We are always one with God, but we do not always realize it consciously. I speak of ourselves as the conscious part of us.) They are His part, and our greatest trouble lies in our trying to do god's part, just because we have not learned how to trust Him to do it. We are, with our conscious thought, to speak the words of life, of truth, of abundant supply, and we are to act as though the words were true; but the "bringing it to pass" is the work of a Power that is higher than we; a Presence which we do not see with these mortal eyes, but which is omnipotent, and which will always rush to our rescue when we trust it. ~ H. Emilie Cady (How I Used Truth, 1955)
"A Path of Conscious Change" is the unfoldment of that which has always been
 
JANUARY 14 ~ FRIDAY
Do not be concerned about what is going on in the world. There are wars. There is destruction. There is terrorism. There is disease which is epidemic and often manmade. There are toxic chemicals in the air and being ingested through the lungs of billions of people. The food supply is becoming more and more contaminated. Our water supply is in jeopardy. The earth is going through massive changes and there is no where we can be sure is safe. But do not worry about these things. All of this is happening within consciousness and it is only consciousness. You have not shown any concern what to do about your own mind, how you feel, how you think, whether you treat others as you would have them treat you... so don't worry about what is going on all around you. Worry about what is going on inside of you. Dr. Derek Lamar
Don't Worry... Be Happy...
 
JANUARY 13 ~ THURSDAY
When we were still little, we get our most important lesson about our body from the person who holds, feeds, and disciplines us. Mother may spank our brother when she catches him playing doctor games. He may feel guilty, but he gets his attitudes about his body, his sex, from other boys and men. "No," says Mother when we touch our vagina. "No," she says again when we chase boys, "wait till you're older." "Don't bother Daddy," she says when we discover how much we like the feel of his lap. We obey. Later we may masturbate and lust after men, but what do we feel? Long before the lectures, the book left on our bedside table, the film at school, we have learned about our sexuality from Mother's denials, avoidance, and her relationship to her own body. ~ Nancy Friday (My Mother, My Self, 1977)
"When she made her first communion, Esther made the perfect union, but she never saw his face again, yeah, her mother said don't tease us, so instead of seeing Jesus, she began to see a lot of other men." ~ Dory Previn (Esther's First Communion)
 
JANUARY 12 ~ WEDNESDAY
In the field of paranormal studies and psychic phenomenon as well as metaphysical work, too many conclusions are arrived at without any real indepth understanding of mind and consciousness. Too often it is decided that certain things are happening without access to an understanding of "Truth" as it pertains to an Absolute understanding of ontological realities. There is still way too much material being observed from the "human perspective" and interpreted as such, which violates the objective spirit of ontological study. We might agree that what we perceive is an honest evaluation, however, just as in quantum studies it is understood that things are changed simply through observation by the human being. But also it must be understood that what is perceived, if perceived through the consciousness of human thinking is going to be tainted. It is unfortunate that many conclusions are made which are true and accurate even though the syllogistic process of reasoning and scientific argument are not being followed properly. This will eventually be called upon and often used for other conclusions and thus inaccuracies will be discovered without knowing why. This is why it is so important that the researcher rely on sound ontological and axiomatic reasoning processes so that the studies reveal a certain mystical experience in words which can be relied upon. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
As above, so below... is the only way we'll ever know.
JANUARY 11 ~ TUESDAY
Everything that you see is your consciousness. Even if someone else is thinking it, it is still your consciousness of it. Besides, there is no one else. There is only One Mind. You are thinking. You are Mind. There is only One Mind. Therefore you are it. So you are the ONE MIND that is all there is. It is hard to encompass at first. But always remember... everything you perceive is in your mind. Where else would it be. It doesn't matter if it is a dream, or if it is refracted light entering into your pupils, or if it is sound vibrations, or if it is a hologram, it is still your mind which is interpretting it and telling you what it is... because it is in your mind. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
And that's the way it is... if you think about it.
 
JANUARY 10 ~ MONDAY
When you think about it, work through it, study and research it, it still all comes back down to the fact that if you can simply get people to understand that they are "OKAY"... that who they think they are is a lie and that they have a Divine Identity which is the salvation of all of their setbacks in life and that if they would only stop, and think about it, let go of all of the negativity they believe about themselves and realize that they are Truth, they are the I AM, they are GOD... everything would be alright. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I think I am a jerk, but I am infinity... how does that go again?
 
JANUARY 9 ~ SUNDAY
There are many types of "Work" which one discovers on this Path. We understand the Fourth Way concept as interpreted by my Teacher, Thane of Hawaii, as 1. Work on the self, 2. Work for the school, 3. Work for children yet unborn. This website can follow the three lines of work but probably it can be most useful for the "Children Yet Unborn." I think it will do this by reminding others how important it is to continue the Teaching. I have found that simply by summing up so many things which need to be dealt with under the banner of "communication" very useful. This conscious action reminds one of the self and increases self observation, it brings into focus the importance of ongoing support for whatever apparatus is operating to continue the Teaching, i.e., the School, and it promotes the awareness that others do not yet know of this Path or Truth in almost any detail as it pertains to an ontological or quantum metaphysics approach. Everything builds toward that important aspect of "letting others know". Anyone who does not yet know is a "child yet unborn" because as G. I. Gurdjieff related it: they have not yet created a soul for themselves. I do not teach it in that manner but there is an understanding that if one does not open up themselves to that place of "Knowingness" everything will just fall through without meaning like water through a sieve. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
To be is to do, to do is to be, to communicate is to realize the self
 
JANUARY 8 ~ SATURDAY
(Gurdjieff)...asked me if I felt I was learning anything. I was surprised by the question and did not know how to answer it, except to say that I did not know. I was then, I think, that he first mentioned, directly, one of the basic purposes and aims of the Institute. He said, disregarding my unsatisfactory response to his question about learning, that, in life, the most difficult thing to achieve for the future, and perhaps the most important, was to learn to live with the "unpleasant manifestations of others". He said that the story we had both told him was, of itself, completely unimportant. The chicken and the plant did not matter. What was important was the behavior of me and of Miss Madison; that if either one of us had been "conscious" of our behavior, and not simply reacting to one another, the problem would have been solved without his intervention. He said that, in a sense, nothing had happened except that Miss Madison and I had given in to our mutual hostility. ~ Fritz Peters (My Journey With A Mystic, Boyhood With Gurdjieff)
To respond, not react, is the goal of becoming "conscious"
 
JANUARY 7 ~ FRIDAY
Those who seek the occult do so at their own risk. What they seek is a power which they feel they do not have. Not having this power therefore they have no protection. It doesn't matter if what it requires is strong belief or not because it is the disbelief in their own ability to protect themselves which creates the risk that often determines destruction. The Black Arts is not something to take lightly. The reason for this is because those who seek it are usually very desperate on some level. It is there where danger lurks. Those who seek the Truth often run across the occult but usually they pass it right on by and are pulled by their destiny in one way or another to discover who they are and the real power in the light which cannot be found in the darkness. There is little creativity to be found in the darkness. Often we must dip into the void to allow creativity to flow through us but this void is merely the doorway to Light. Those who actually believe it is out of the darkness where the power is get lost there and never discover the Light. And it is the darkness which swallows them up. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The bush burned (Light) but did not consume itself (Infinity)
 
JANUARY 6 ~ THURSDAY
Keep telling yourself that you programmed yourself many years ago and that you can reprogram that which you programmed. Remember that you did it all to yourself. You are not in the grip of forces beyond your control! It's all in your mind. Through the Method of Consciousness Focusing, you can be the master of your mind. You are a perfect being --- pure Conscious-awareness. Your only problem is that you are caught in the grip of too many things that you are telling yourself you must have to be happy. You are laying too many conditions on the outside world that it (and the people in it) cannot possibly meet. You are culture-bound. You have programmed yourself with all these addictions, demands, and expectations --- and you can reprogram yourself. When you have reprogrammed your addictions, you are free for a lifetime. All the happiness and the beauty of the world will then be yours. ~ Ken Keyes, Jr. (Handbook To Higher Consciousness, 1972
Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream ~ Lennon/McCartney
 
JANUARY 5 ~ WEDNESDAY
The student of Zen is confronted by a master who has himself experienced awakening, and is in the best sense of the expression a completely natural man. For the adept in Zen is one who manages to be human with the same artless grace and absence of inner conflict with which a tree is a tree. Such a man is likened to a ball in a mountain stream, which is to say that he cannot be blocked, stopped, or embarrassed in any situation. He never wobbles or dithers in his mind, for though he may pause in overt action to think a problem out, the stream of his consciousness always moves straight ahead without being caught in the vicious circles of anxiety or indecisive doubt, wherein thought whirls wildly around without issue. He is not precipitate or hurried in action, but simply continuous. This is what Zen means by being detached -- not being without emotion or feeling, but being one in whom feeling is not sticky or blocked, and through whom the experiences of the world pass like the reflections of birds flying over water. ~ Alan Watts (This Is It, 1958)
Be still ~ Be centered ~ Know your I AM ~ I AM of myself nothing ~ I AM all there is
 
JANUARY 4 ~ TUESDAY
"The 1980 Chronocrator is in the air sign Libra, which is acknowledged as the sign of war in political astrology. This requires us to think of the unthinkable. No doubt the recent events in the Near Middle East, which have been blown out of proportion to some extent through media sensationalism and political grand-standing, should warn us that the dream of no more war is still only a dream. The 1980 conjunction indicates that the United States may find itself drawing closer to one or more portions of the world known as China, Japan and parts of India and Egypt.
"I'm not writing this to frighten you. Millions of these aspects have occurred in the past many, many centuries, and the human race is still around to talk about it. My point in writing this is to warn you that those who take vicarious pleasure in predictions of gloom and doom will make much of this conjunction, but their forebodings should be taken in with large grains of salt.
"There was a Great Chronocrator in nearly the same degree of the sign Libra almost 800 years ago in 1186. The Persian poet Anwari made all sorts of predictions that never came to pass. Those who foresee cataclysm in connection with the 1980 conjunction in Libra should bear in mind that the alignments of 1186 did not fulfill the dire expectations. At least not in a literal sense. But the Crusades were in full swing then, and the cry of jihad (Holy War) were heard in the land. Conflict between the European and Moslem civilizations was the issue of the day, just as it appears to be the keynote of our own time. If the 1980 Chronocrator may be said to signify anything, increasing conflict between Islam and its rivals would seem the most likely prospect.
"It would seem as though the portents of the Universe were speaking to us midnight, New Year's Eve, 1980, telling us our destinies are hanging in balance, just as the scales of Libra indicate.
"Again, I have not written this to frighten anyone but I've sent it as a New Year's Gift to all of you to provide guidelines for your careful thinking. Translating, and girding up of your loins to survive through the heavy astrological weather ahead is my sincere advice."
~ Thane (January 5, 1981 - Kailua, HI)
All is revealed to be denied ~ Robin Scott ("M")
 
JANUARY 3 ~ MONDAY

Our culture has become so intellectually sophisticated but so emotionally immature that humanity is becoming increasingly incapable of observing itself and realizing that they must change within. Everyone thinks they know what all of the new philosophies are about, all of the most modern esoteric disciplines are, all of the insightful disciplines which can raise one's consciousness yet no one ventures a foot into the door, into the arena, they don't even ask questions via email, they continue to flood themselves with sensory stimulation but all for the purpose of not feeling what is already there which they do not want to look at, that which they actually fear to look at. For those of you whom this rings a bell but are honest enough to desire to progress further... contact me. Bless you. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar

Look within, look without, discover what you cannot do without
 
JANUARY 2 ~ SUNDAY

Lately I can safely say the way things seem to be today are strained. Yes, they are strange. Maybe I am making up for something that is taking up my time. Show me a sign. Victims are pursuing all the accidents occurring in their name. Just the same. What you see is nothing more than how you thought it was before and then you see it again. Don't say it's nothing. Don't try to hide. Be sure of one thing. It's in your eyes, it's in your eyes. ~ © Copyright 2005 Derek Lamar (It's In Your Eyes)

Look twice, life is an echo
 
JANUARY 1 ~ SATURDAY

A new year comes every year so why should this one be special? This is going to be a very special year and I have no way to prove that to you. Perhaps it is just going to be special for me. But the point is, it really is special for all of you who desire to have a new beginning, to desire to know yourself better, to make changes in your life through this process, to become dedicated to actually having meaning to everything you do every day. This is not something difficult. And it is available to you every day. It doesn't even cost anything. You could simply forget all of your obligations, all of your life and death situations, all of your great plans, all of your fantasies, all of your television shows... simply sit by yourself, be calm, let the stress go and say to yourself: I AM Consciousness. I AM the MIND which is the MIND which has always been the only MIND there is. I AM Allness. I AM Wholeness. I AM Perfection. I AM Love. If you do nothing else, begin to treat others in a way which resembles the care you would desire for yourself. Not what you flagrantly desire but what you seriously know would be the healthy manner in which humanity would deal with you with true love. Bless all of you. I shall continue working on my "self" knowing you are also working on your "self." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
