January 25 ~ Thursday 2007
There is an art of listening. To be able really to listen, one should abandon or put aside all prejudices, preformulations and daily activities . . . But unfortunately most of us listen through a screen of resistance. We are screened with prejudices, whether religious or spiritual, psychological or scientific; or with our daily worries, desires and fears. And with these for a screen, we listen. Therefore, we listen really to our own noise, our own sound, not to what is being said. It is extremely difficult to put aside our training, our prejudices, our inclination, our resistance, and, reaching beyond the verbal expression, to listen so that we understand instantaneously. ~ J. Krishnamurti (The First and Last Freedom)
Listen to the whispers of the wise voice within
January 24 ~ Wednesday 2007
What is greed but the faith in needing more to make up for feeling like you are not somehow deserving of something better. This will not get you anywhere. This has failure built into it.

It is in this that you must know that all things shall be given unto you
January 23 ~ Tuesday 2007
There is no matter as such! All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter. ~ Max Planck

January 22 ~ Monday 2007
Personal study requires work on the self, not simply acquiring intellectual information of a spiritual nature. The only point to mystical knowledge is to escape the beliefs we hold which are rooted in duality and keeping us from being who we are. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
It is in the darkness you will see the stars shine
January 21 ~ Sunday 2007

There is nothing else where I AM not
January 20 ~ Saturday 2007
Esoteric philosophy insists that beneath the manifold world of our experience there is a single Reality, the source and cause of all that ever was, is and is to be. The great exponent of the Vedic tradition, Shri Shankaracharya, puts it simply: no matter what shape may be given to the moulded clay, the reality of the object remains always the clay, its name and form being but transitory appearances. So likewise all things, having issued from the One Supreme, are themselves that Supreme in their essential nature. From highest to lowliest, from vastest to most minute, the infinite phenomena of the manifested universe are the One, clothed in name and form. ~ Madame Blavatsky
In back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality
January 19 ~ Friday 2007
Do not look to the heavens and ask for what you want. Reach deep into that self within which is your True Self, One with God, and ask for that which you need to continue your path in growing up toward your own Light. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Rise like hot air toward the perfect light of knowing
January 18 ~ Thursday 2007
The free, wise, immortal center of man is the begotten of God. Only this uninjurable and shining principle is offspring of I AM THAT I AM. Not only the free and unspoilable soul, spirit of Jesus, but the soul, the hidden spark, of Nero, is Son of the Highest; Jesus, being unclothed of matter with its mind and temper, Nero, being heavily garmented therewith. The upward vision saves Nero or Jesus. There is no respect of persons on the high watch. "Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net," may be proclaimed by bad and good alike. "God is the bad man's deliverer," grateful sang the ancient Chinese sages. ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins (High Mysticism)
You cannot behold Me with your two outer eyes, I have given you an eye Divine ~ The Upanishads
January 17 ~ Wednesday 2007
Deliver yourself to who you really are by realizing that this is who you have always been. In this moment you will relinquish all fear, all worry, all feelings of insignificance and know that you are the Universe. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Stand before time and embrace Infinity
January 16 ~ Tuesday 2007
Thoughts become things... choose the good ones!
It's no accident, that when you look closely into the eyes of another, the very first thing you see, is yourself. That when you hold their hand, you can feel your own warmth. And that when you give of yourself, you give to yourself. Because, quite simply, both you, and they, are me. Let's get it started, un-huh. ~ The Universe (contributed by Beverly Ensey)
When you are the answer to every question, you understand why there are no accidents
January 15 ~ Monday 2007
We are told that there are vibrations streaming through the universe. If we chord with them we are in harmony with our life. All our actions charm our world. All our world's actions charm us. The mind has its fingers with which to touch the fine threads of music that string themselves to and fro. It has eyes to see their twining enchantments. ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins
Release the song of your heart into your soul
January 14 ~ Sunday 2007
Be still, myself --- be still. Be still with the calm of the one that I AM. For I would write on the plastic walls of an eternal blank that which I AM that is true; and I have not thought it out, but it was and is and always will be my own glorious being. ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins
Pure being is knowing all that ever is
January 13 ~ Saturday 2007
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. ~ Albert Einstein
The mystery is seeing the Truth without understanding it.
Enlightenment is understanding Truth and being at one with it.

January 12 ~ Friday 2007
Never give the devil a ride. He will always want to drive. ~ anonymous (Q.M.I. does not promote the idea of a literal devil or Satan, however, view this as the negative powers of patterns and self-destructive constructs which constantly attempt to take over one's mind rather than being awake and at one with their "I AM".)
Chinese saying: "Be careful what you ask for, you may get it."
January 11 ~ Thursday 2007
Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. ~ Helen Keller
Healing is the process of realizing the perfect order and balance of the Universe
January 10 ~ Wednesday 2007
A treatment is a Truth stated. Whatever happens when Truth is stated happens because Truth was not manifest till it was stated. It touches the principle announced by John, the beloved disciple, that without the spoken Word of Truth, the manifested God is not possible. ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins (Self Treatment)
One speaks the word of Truth and it then is realized in the world
January 9 ~ Tuesday 2007
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies;
for the hardest victory is over self. ~ Aristotle
The energy of the mind is the essence of life. ~
Philosophy is the science which considers truth. ~ Aristotle
One conquers themselves as they reclaim their own Self
January 8 ~ Monday 2007
A common question among many spiritual teachers is "Why don't more people want to know the Truth?" But usually people talk about this like it is enlightenment that people desire. God-like power to control the planet as well as the entire Universe. But this isn't practical and no one really believes this even if you offer it. But suggest that they look at themselves and make minor changes in their consciousness and suddenly they run in the other direction. Why? Because people are afraid of change. They think it means giving something up rather than opening the doors to a new and wonderful world. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Give yourself the benefit of the doubt
January 7 ~ Sunday 2007
The impersonal life is not one without feelings. It is one where one remains detached from the mechanicalness of everyday life. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Give yourself over to your greatest potential
January 6 ~ Saturday 2007
Intention is that awakening to the knowingness of Mind revealing itself to you and giving you meaning to life and all things. Destiny is the magnetic draw you feel pulling you toward the unfoldment you are intuitively moving toward as your True Self. One of these is pushing and one is pulling thus completing the cycle of True Being. The male and female of the Yin/Yang of Consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Let Reality be known to you as you
January 5 ~ Friday 2007
Wanting to make changes is abnormal for the most part. You have to sense a higher part of yourself speaking to you to be willing to let go and allow your real self to come through. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Be ready and willing to move up an octave
January 4 ~ Thursday 2007
There is something beyond our mind which abides in silence.
It is the supreme mystery beyond thought.
Let one's mind and one's subtle body rest upon that, and not rest upon anything else.
God is sound and silence.
Attain therefore contemplation, contemplation in silence on him. ~ Upanishads
Be still and know that I AM that I AM
January 3 ~ Wednesday 2007
Wow! 2007. With all that is happening in the world, it is still our world... and we can change it... by changing our awareness. Not politics but the reflection of what we see in the world is a secret post-it from Mind telling us secrets about ourselves. Let's look at it and change. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Smoke and mirrors, fumes and tears, it's all an illusion
January 2 ~ Tuesday 2007
