- May 2007 Quote of the Day
- May 31 ~ Thursday 2007
Truth... the changing of consciousness... Truth will bring down the grid of human consciousness like the fall of the Soviet Union. Freedom... the idea was the power working in the hearts and minds of the Easter block countries and Russia. Duality, manipulation, political deceit from both parties, the banking system, the military industrial complex will dissolve in the mindless ideas they are based on and the exoteric system they are manifesting as consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (A Crumbling Matrix)
Nothing you perceive is real but that which is divine and within you ~ D.L.

Reaching out with esoteric information to others and discovering them reaching back is a Cosmic moment which cannot be described easily. But it can be a confirmation that the path is being followed and the light is shining on the awakening souls within Consciousness. ~ Derek Lamar
Question everything, even the questions but treasure the answers

Inquiring minds long for the truth of the heart, seek it, strive to solve the problems set by life, try to penetrate to the essence of things and phenomena, and into themselves... Socrates' words, 'know thyself' remain an imperative for all those who seek true knowledge and being. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Inquiring minds wanna know
May 28 ~ Monday 2007
Simply because your senses tell you that matter is real does not make it so. Think about it. See? What you know is in your mind, not to be decided by your physical senses. And if you were to use your physical senses your conclusion would be in your mind and filed there forever and not in the physical realm. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily... life is but a dream

Jach Pursel, a former Florida insurance agent living in Los Angeles, squints his eyes and speaks with the voice of Lazaris, a spiritual entity of uncertain origins.
"How old are you?" he asked.
"In our reality, we have no time," says Lazaris.
"Why are you making your presence known to man?"
"Because you are ready now..."
"Is the world about to end?"
"No. In a word, no. This is not the ending. This is the beginning." ~ C.A.R.M. (Time, New Age Harmonies, Dec. 7, 1987)

To those who believe in a Universe of random accidents, of course there are mathematical cycles which present opportunities to calculate the patterns of people and life itself. The Universe is infinite and the out and back of Principle (ebb and flow) or cause and effect, if you will, reveal patterns which repeat and yet the ongoingness of life based on Infinity show the point and counterpoint of how things work together in a mirror like fashion and yet the mirror is always moving. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (doctorate in metaphysics as well as a Ph.D. in pastoral counseling psychology)
Everyone has a fingerprint and yet no two are alike... the same and different ~ D.L.
May 19 ~ Saturday 2007
All things are thought. If it exists physically, there is a thought process behind it. Although this could go back as far as to speak of the intelligent creative source that created everything, for all practical purposes our point is made. All things are physical and nonphysical are thought. Which is also another dichotomy, have you noticed? Universally things either end up being one thing that encompasses all things in the universe, thought for example, or becoming too equal and opposite halves, in the example of physicality and being nonphysical. Thus, if you wish to let go of something, realize the nature of it's existance. It's a thought in your mind. ~ Contributor to Yahoo.com
Thoughts have wings ~ The Rosacrucians

May 16 ~ Wednesday 2007
Further, I say that if the soul is to know God, it must forget itself and lose itself, for as long as it is self-aware and self-conscious, it will not see or be conscious of God. But when, for God's sake, it becomes unself-conscious and lets go of everything, it finds itself again in God, for knowing God, it therefore knows itself and everything else from which it has been cut asunder, in the divine perfection. ~ Meister Eckhart (The Kingdom of God Is At Hand)
So many look everywhere when they need only to look within
May 15 ~ Tuesday 2007

It isn't simply enough to study spirituality for the purpose of learning more knowledge but rather for the purpose of inner change. If one is filling up with more knowledge, acquiring intellectual ideas which extend the accumulation of the human interpretation of humankind's ideas about spirituality then they are creating more baggage they will only need to sort out later. The purpose of a spiritual path is to let go and allow that which is real to regain its position in you, as you, within your consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Let go of illusion and allow reality to be made manifest as your consciousness
May 12 ~ Saturday 2007
I wish to remind you that this system is based on understanding. Understanding must occupy the first place in this system. The more you understand, the better the result of your work will be. Understanding is a relative term. Everyone understands something at every moment in his own way. But understanding may be larger, and larger, and still larger. In this system we call understanding a certain possible maximum on a certain level of knowledge and being. As a rule this maximum is too low; people's understanding is usually limited to only one room, and they never get out of that room. But the understanding of these ideas is very much beyond this one room. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff (The Fourth Way by P.D. Ouspensky)
Learning how to think begins a lifelong process of self-discovery ~ D.L.
May 11 ~ Friday 2007
Quantum physics has turned the way science looks at the world upside down. Scientists today are sounding like ancient spiritual teachers. Quantum Spirituality is about building bridges between Science and spirituality which can change the way we see life. ~ Richard Hartnett, H.W., M.
Science is how we understand reality, Spirituality is how we understand reality, in reality they are One
May 10 ~ Thursday 2007
Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... It is a good thing to proceed in order and to establish propositions (principles). This is the way to gain ground and to progress with certainty. ... I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is a fact in nature. ~ Gottfried Leibniz, 1670
To be is to express consciousness and an awareness of that consciousness ~ D.L.
May 9 ~ Wednesday 2007
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

May 8 ~ Tuesday 2007
Our place in cosmic history depends on the delicate interplay between the very big and the very small. Chaos and complexity theory show us that patterns tend to reiterate and persist (like fractals) at all levels of observation: “As Above; So Below.” There are a few competing theories for describing the subquantal nature of Reality in both quantum cosmology and quantum physics. The field patterns of the finest organization of energy and matter also affect the evolution of the cosmos. The various models include a non-zero cosmological constant, quintessence, tracker fields, Bohm’s implicate order, and the varying-speed-of-light (VSL) theory. ~ Richard and Iona Miller
True Science will respresent the Essence of Spirituality and Spirituality is the Essence of True Science

May 6 ~ Sunday 2007
The first thing one must begin to acknowledge on a journey of this sort is that all you are ever dealing with is Consciousness. No matter what, it is your consciousness of something that you are being aware of, or not aware of. All that you know, all that you remember, whatever you have ever experienced or ever will experience, is in your consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Lessons In Destiny, 2007)
Your future is in your mind... think about it
May 5 ~ Saturday 2007
Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in a river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one; on that side all obstruction is taken away, and he sweeps into an infinite sea. By doing his work he makes the need felt which he can supply. He creates the taste by which he is enjoyed. He provokes the wants to which he can minister. By doing his own work, HE UNFOLDS HIMSELF. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.
To avoid one's own destiny is to face an uphill battle
May 4 ~ Friday 2007
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
Walter M. "Wally" Schirra passed away Thursday May 3 at 84.
Touching the face of God again
May 3 ~ Thursday 2007
When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth.
Arthur Conan Doyle (The Sign of Four)
Logic is mathematical and to form new conclusions is to create new worlds
May 2 ~ Wednesday 2007
We should never hesitate to say that we know the Truth, because we do, for the realization of the Unity of God and man is the Truth. We simply need a greater realization of this. How are we to get it? Only by penetrating deeper and yet deeper int our own Divine Nature---pushing further an further bac into the Infinite. Where are we to do this? THERE IS NO PLACE EXCEPT WITHIN THAT WE CAN DO IT. Who is to do it for us? NO ONE. No one can. Others can treat us; they can set the Law in motion for s nd help us to become prosperous. This is both good and helpful, but the evolution of the individual---the unfoldment of personality, the enlightenment of the soul, the illumination of the spirit---can come only to the degree that the individual himself purposes to let Life operate through him. "Let this Mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." (Phil.2:5) This is the Mind of God---the only Mind---the Supreme Intelligence of the Universe. ~ Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind, 1938)
Reach within and discover the voice of God ~ D.L.

I do not say that mind is one thing and matter another, I say they are the same thing. ~ Spinoza
