Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
June Quote of the Day 2007

June 30 ~ Saturday 2007
Peace is not the ending of war. Peace is the Oneness through which the whole self is realized. As you battle within yourself to come to terms with who you are, peace arrives when you realize that everything already is alright. Life begins now. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Hold yourself as a child and tell them you love them
June 29 ~ Friday 2007
Humankind's big fear is that humanity will destroy itself and all human life upon the earth will be gone. And yet humans do so little as individuals to insure that they leave the earth a little bit better as a result of what they add to the culture of earth. They think the continuation of the race is important but the contribution of themselves is not worth the trouble. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
People will die physically for almost anything but will barely pause to know themselves in life
June 28 ~ Thursday 2007
In the beginning, we might have embarked upon the path of Buddhism thanks to a belief in reincarnation, but as we continue to practice and touch reality, our beliefs change. We needn't be afraid of this. In the course of our study and practice, as we touch reality more and more deeply, our beliefs naturally evolve and become more solid. When our beliefs are based on our own direct experience of reality and not on notions offered by others, no one can remove these beliefs from us. Makin a long-term commitment to a concept is much more dangerous. If ten years pass without the growth of our belief, one day we will wake up and discover that we can no longer believe in what we did. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh (Living Buddha, Living Christ, 1995)
Sometimes change is as subtle as realizing that the light I see is now me
June 27 ~ Wednesday 2007
All outer manifestations of man's life are nothing but projections of an inner state or image contained within his own consciousness. Man must learn that the only way to create a better world is to build the constructive images within his own consciousness that he wishes to see expressed in the world. For the world is simply an outpicturing of our mental beliefs and attitudes. We look at a man and we say that he is lame, deaf, blind, ragged, or poor. We have clothed him in rags, in garments of blindness, deafness, poverty, but in absolute Truth he is God and can never be any less than He is. Let us awaken from the dream and clothe every man in the garment of Christ, the Anointed One. ~ Joseph Murphy (This Is It, 1945)
It is all one's mind which we perceive and that is where we make all changes
June 26 ~ Tuesday 2007
As we enter the twenty-first century, too many people are suffering. Much of this suffering is from factors way beyond my ability to affect, but a good deal of it is needless suffering that I can do a little about — suffering that stems from a widespread conflict between science and religion. ~ Charles Tart (MindScience: Meditation training for practical people)
It is clear as we look out, that we should begin to look within
June 25 ~ Monday 2007
In Teaching love is the answer because it is the one emotion of Truth which binds the appearances and reveals the Oneness which is in back of all that we perceive. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Love is all you need
June 24 ~ Sunday 2007
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder it is true, but also is wealth in the eye of the beholder, or talent is in the eye of the beholder. All of these things have to do not simply with what someone thinks of someone else, but ultimately what one thinks of him or herself. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Baby you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man too
June 23 ~ Saturday 2007
Ahhh...People ask me questions, lost in confusion.
Well, I tell them there's no problem, only solutions.
Well, they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind.
I tell them there's no hurry, I'm just sitting here doing time.
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round.
I really love to watch them roll.
No longer riding on the marry-go-round.
I just had to let it go. ~ John Lennon (Watching The Wheels from Double Fantasy)
There will be an answer, let it be (Paul McCartney)
June 22 ~ Friday 2007
Choosing a "Teacher" is not as important as finding the "Teaching". The Teaching will bring the Teacher. "When the student is ready, the Teacher appears." This is principle and this is also Love in action. This is the most important part of one's path. Not just a teacher of knowledge but the revealing of Light and of the Self. ~ Derek
Be open and feel the fears dissolve and the tenderness of caring wash over you. This is the healing of the soul
June 21 ~ Thursday 2007
Patience is knowing how to wait, not outwardly quiet, but inwardly quiet. To be patient is to allow the knowingness you have achieved within about something and allow it to come to fruition knowing that it will. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Be still and know that the I AM is always there within
June 20 ~ Wednesday 2007
In the systems view of health, every illness is in essence a mental phenomenon, and in many cases the process of getting sick is reversed most effectively through an approach that integrates both physical and psychological therapies. The conceptual framework underlying such an approach will include not only the new systems biology but also a new systems psychology, a science of human experience and behavior that perceives the human organism as a dynamic system involving interdependent physiological and psychological patterns, and as being embedded in interacting larger systems of physical, social, and cultural dimensions. ~ Fritjof Capra (The Turning Point: Science, Society, and the Rising Culture, 1982)
The mind of mirrors is the science of reflection
June 19 ~ Tuesday 2007
I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end. ~ Kahlil Gibran
All things are One, all is forever
June 18 ~ Monday 2007
The commitment to follow one's path, whatever it may be, is the most important decision of one's life. This could be compared in religious circles to the accepting of Christ. For it is the accepting of one's divinity as the pursuit of discovery. When one chooses a path it is important they are sure and then to follow through. This does not mean having only one Teacher but it does mean that one should continue long enough that they have a better idea about themselves and where they are going. To change courses constantly from one belief system to another is usually the subconscious mind tricking the truth seeker into walking away from the uncomfortable moments in one's search which might just be what is needed to make real change and reveal a self which has been covered up for a long time. If you are truly prepared to know, then knowing you shall. The pursuit of the mystery is not such a mystery as to elude one so completely. The mind which seeks revelation always knows the way even if our everyday self feigns fear of the darkness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Travel on sure ground knowing on some level you have been there before
June 17 ~ Sunday 2007
To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God. ~ Meister Eckhart
Things represent the concept of physicality and the separateness between God (spiritual consciousness) and the dualistic concept of earth as matter. Therefore to be full of things symbolizes that belief in physical consciousness versus the emptiness of matter which symbolizes the letting go of earth state mentality thus a fullness of the knowledge of the "I AM". ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Let there be light, for light is the reality which is all there is
June 16 ~ Saturday 2007
The main thrust of psychological therapy is to look at oneself, view your memories and then relive them in order that you perceive the situation today as opposed to the way you saw it then. The then is usually when you were a child because so often the key memories occurred when you were young. So many times we react to a situation and form conclusions which stay with us for life but alter the way we perceive ourselves, others and life itself. When we can relive that moment, seeing it again, is often all we need to have a change in consciousness. But then sometimes more is needed. That is when you go beyond the man-state viewpoint and recognize your divinity and realize that it was Mind Unfolding bringing you to this new Higher State of Awareness in order to recognize that your identity is that of Mind, God, Truth, Consciousness. When this occurs the previous memory is refiled and you now have a spiritual realization which operates within your consciousness rather than the one which created patterns you found yourself acting out over and over again causing pain and suffering. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Step into the Light and realize that you are whole, complete and perfect
June 15 ~ Friday 2007
The business of analysis is to secure the best possible conditions for the functioning of the ego; when this has been done analysis has accomplished its task. ~ Sigmund Freud
The first human who hurled an insult instead of a stone was the founder of civilization. ~ Sigmund Freud
A man should not strive to eliminate his complexes, but to get into accord with them; they are legitimately what directs his conduct in the world. ~ Sigmund Freud
No one who, like me, conjures up the most evil of those half-tamed demons that inhabit the human beast, and seeks to wrestle with them, can expect to come through the struggle unscathed. ~ Sigmund Freud
Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from its readiness to fit in with our instinctual wishful impulses. ~ Sigmund Freud
Whoever loves becomes humble. Those who love have, so to speak, pawned a part of their narcissism. ~ Sigmund Freud
Sometimes a cigar is the shape of a UFO
June 14 ~ Thursday 2007 (Happy Flag Day)
In recent years (David) Bohm has become an active spokesman for the school of thought that sees the universe as a giant hologram arguing that to truly understand and be able to explain quantum processes, we must abandon our traditional modes of reductionistic thinking. Beneath the world of surface phenomena there is an undivided seamless whole, and it is this "underworld" that is the domain of quantum objects. In this realm, every object is connected to every other because of the intertwining of their quantum potentials, ensuring that every quantum object carries a trace of every other object with which it has ever interacted. ~ John L. Casti (Paradigms Lost: Tackling the Unanswered Mysteries of Modern Science: 1989)

In esoteric circles I was trained in it was stated that "...in back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality..." ...and "of the many roles I play in life what I am is consciousness which is not of the many roles I play." Therefore despite the appearances of a physical universe based on random interaction there are multiple activities which are interconnected because it is all consciousness and this Mind is the reality upon which everything rests. I understand this now as Quantum Metaphysics. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
In a Universe of particles and waves there is also the symmetry of interacted Oneness
June 13 ~ Wednesday 2007
To discover who you really are sometimes it requires first to realize who you are not. When do you feel alien to yourself? When do you say things to other people and know this self you project is not who you are? When you do things based on what you think others expect even though it means nothing to you really. Being your self has nothing to do with compulsions or doing what seems natural. Often what we do is mechanical but we do not yet know the difference between what is our "I AM" self and our pretend self. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Go beyond the accepted role... discover who you are
June 12 ~ Tuesday 2007
It seems so few people desire to know the Truth about themselves in a spiritual sense and few who desire to know what it is they believe about themselves within them that they spend their life avoiding. Both of these things are necessary if one is to achieve any personal greatness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Look within and discover what appears to be and yet what really is
June 11 ~ Monday 2007
The universe -- and man in it -- is but an enormous composite of thought. The universe exists in our minds, and in our bodies, in everything we experience, taste, touch, see, and do. Every force observed, whether particle, anti-particle, neutrino or quark, is directed by and acts according to the dictates of a particular intelligence of thought. Thought has been quantized by science as a discrete pocket of measurable energy, but in fact, it is a part of the all-pervasive whole. ~ Rabbi Philip S. Berg (To The Power of One, 1991)
Happy King Kamehameha Day ~ Aloha nui loa
June 10 ~ Sunday 2007
Noted psychiatrist Carl Jung, M.D. felt strongly about the use of emotions as energy. Jung suggested: "In the intensity of the emotional disturbance itself lies the value, the energy which he should have at his deepest disposal in order to remedy the state of reduced adaptation." (Jung, 1960). What follows are the steps to transmute thoughts, feelings, E-motions, and sensations. You, as the observer of an experience put the label on. ~ Stephen Wolinsky (Quantum Consciousness, 1993)
Even before I AM, I already was
June 9 ~ Saturday 2007
You can put out your hand and feel God. Put your hand on your own form and you both see and feel God. As you may have passed 100 or 1000 people during the day in going about your affairs, you have seen God 100 or 1000 times. This may be repeated each day. Keep God close to you by seeing every living form as God. Then God will be so close to you that you will never again closet God in some far off celestial realm or temple and you will find the temple not made with hands. ~ Baird T. Spalding (Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East)
If you have seen me you have seen the Father
June 8 ~ Friday 2007
The search for truth is never a straight line from point A to point B. This is because if one does not know the truth a part of them is turning away from it. This insures that the path will have twists and turns until one feels safe to confront the opportunity to let go of error and accept truth. Thus the long and winding road. But such a journey is guaranteed to be fascinating, exciting, intrigueing, sensual and fulfilling. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
June 7 ~ Thursday 2007
People misunderstand the meaning of the term: "the Gospel". Some think it is simply a statement which means "the truth", or, it was "the gospel". Other think that it means the story of Jesus, as in, "The Gospels" or "The Four Gospels". But this isn't what the meaning of The Gospel is at all. What does it mean that Jesus preached "the Gospel"? The Gospel is an English translation which comes from "The Good News" or "Godspell" which was the proclamation of God but originally it was "the Good News" that Jesus brought as his theme. This news was not the story about himself but rather "the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" or "within". Thus the whole ministry of Jesus was the realization that all that is GOD is within us, and also the ONENESS of GOD. But again rather than people understanding and learning the Truth by working on the "SELF" they step back and worship someone else... so much easier and less threatening it seems. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The Universe of Reality is within your Consciousness
June 6 ~ Wednesday 2007
Gurdjief'f's words, in addition to their ordinary meaning, undoubtedly contained another, altogether different, meaning. I had already begun to realize that, in order to arrive at this hidden meaning in Gurdjieff's words, one had to begin with their usual and simply meaning. Gurdjieff's words were always significant in their ordinary sense, although this was not the whole of their significance. The wider or deeper significance remained hidden for a long time." ~ P. D. Ouspensky (Gurdjieff, Fourth Way and Esoteric Teaching by Dr. Derek Lamar)
First there is a meaning, then there is no meaning, then there is
June 5 ~ Tuesday 2007
Do not continue believing in what you see just because you see it. Realize there is illusion and whatever you perceive can only be evaluated based on an understanding of Truth. Therefore measure appearances by Reality, Wholeness, Infinity. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Gurdjieff, Fourth Way and Esoteric Teaching)
Look outside, then look inside
June 4 ~ Monday 2007
And in oneself, as well as groups and organizations in this work, one has constantly to be on the watch not to forget one's aim and the aim of the work, and become so identified with one's own attitude to the work and with the organization, that one loses sight of the real aim. ~ C. S. Nott (Journey Through This World)
When you are the light, you worry little about making the light
June 3 ~ Sunday 2007
To be awake is an ancient quest but one which requires the truth seeker to admit being asleep. But to admit being asleep also requires being awake to a great amount. No one can be totally asleep and still be alive because total sleep would be a state of non-existence. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Wake up and smell the coffee
June 2 ~ Saturday 2007
First of all you must realize that you are not you. Be sure of that, believe me. "I" is the master, if we have an "I". ~ G. I. Gurdjieff (Boyhood With Gurdjieff by Fritz Peters)
We all have an "I". But we don't all have our "I" revealed to us. To be awake and conscious of ourselves and our surroundings is a very big task for most people. Too big to accomplish out of will power. Will power alone will not do it. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Gurdjieff, Fourth Way and Esoteric Teaching)
Be still and know that I AM God
June 1 ~ Friday 2007
If you "wish", you "can". Without "wishing", you never "can". Wish is the most powerful thing in the world. With conscious wish everything comes. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff (Views From The Real World)
Believe that you have it already ~ J.C..
