- Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
- July 2007 Quote of the Day
July 31 ~ Tuesday 2007
In fact, quantum physics accurately describes all physical phenomena. The rough, classical physics that we are accustomed to using when talking about the everyday world about us is just a good approximation (an approximation that works well at certain restricted levels) of the real physics that quantum theory outlines. So the problem is not that quantum reality is terribly remote or inaccessible. It is everywhere around us and inside us. In fact, as we get more in touch with the true nature of our own perceptions and conscious experience, I think we can appreciate the truth of David Bohm's claim that "quantum mechanics has been experienced by everybody far more than classical mechanics." But we have been immersed in the mechanistic paradigm for so long that we have come to expect very particular things from the physical world. We are used to the Newtonian categories of space and time and solid matter and we can't easily imagine a world that mocks their existence. ~ Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall (The Quantum Society, 1994)
In back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality

Man is known as the curious animal; it has been said that his curiosity sets him apart from the beast. It is not difficult to understand why one of the favorite targets of this curiosity is man's own behavior, the examination of the scope and variety of his own actions, thoughts, and feelings. One of the most interesting things man has found out by looking at himself is how each individual can differ from all others. An equally interesting observation is how different a single individual can be at different times. ~ George S. Thommen (Is This Your Day, 1973)
Self-observation: the pastime of the Truth Seeker
July 29 ~ Sunday 2007
There are some things in life that catch your eye, and then there are those that capture your heart. Pursue those. --Author Unknown
And eventually you will discover why they captured your heart
July 28 ~ Saturday 2007
"Everything you ask and pray for, believe that you have it already, and it will be yours." ~ Mark 11:24 All that you could want already is, all that you would be, you already are. You are the MIND of GOD and all that is, like the multiplication table already exists within mind. 2 + 2 = 4 and it equaled 4 even before you began to add up the numbers. The answer was already there. The answer IS already there.
Is the house mine?
Do you want it?
Yes, I want it.
Then it is yours.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so it is... Let there be Light...
July 27 ~ Friday 2007
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. ~ Buddha

Of the many words of Truth which shine on you... heed their call
July 26 ~ Thursday 2007
Re-identification" is an ongoing process. Basically, I take a personal issue and work it through a process wherein I clarify my present identity as a "thing" which can have a problem. Once clarified, then I can give up this identity. Immediately thereafter, I re-identify myself as consciousness. This is a big step toward liberation. Consciousness is my True Self. As consciousness I am a non-physical mind-substance, whole, complete, ever present, undivided, changeless, dimensionless.
The process of re-identification is a great transformational pathway available to anyone and everyone. Consciousness is who you are back and behind all the roles you play. It is a gracious presence within you. It provides every experience in your life. If your consciousness is filled with fear because you have been taught to fear and to believe in the worst, then you will see fearful things around you.
As consciousness I am connected to all people, even animals and plants. Consciousness is something all indigenous people have understood for tens of thousands of years and more, though they used different words to talk about it. I propose that true liberation is not about destroying evil out there. It is about confronting and re-identifying evil within us. Ontology gives us a way to do this without blaming ourselves. The link is Consciousness. Find that key within yourself. You are Consciousness. Consciousness is a power that you must draw upon to see your way through these difficult times. ~ Heather Williams, H.W., M. (Drawing Together)
Of the many roles I play in life, what I AM is Consciousness which is not of the many roles I play

July 24 ~ Tuesday 2007
We shall be together even in the silent memory of God, And let there be
spaces in our togetherness. Let the winds of the heavens dance between
us, And let it be a moving sea between the shores of our souls. ~ Kahlil Gibran
You awaken when the shadow of the other person is seen as your own

July 22 ~ Sunday 2007
Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. ~ Buddha

Something to live for
July 20 ~ Friday 2007
Fear of intimacy is a fear of death. In a world where we have been taught to believe that the bolstering of our individual power is the greatest good, it is difficult to feel that a melting of the walls surrounding us is something to be desired. In some ways, we are right: Intimacy does melt the walls, it does mean the surrender of our heretofore completely independent mode of operation, and it does decrease the freedom we have to stand forth in the world as a lone and individual force. ~ Marianne Williamson (Illuminata, 1994)
Something to die for
July 19 ~ Thursday 2007

Relax. Open up your self to your self. Fall into your self. Feel your self as the non material substance that it is. You are mind. You are consciousness. You are infinite mind. You are infinite consciousness. You always were and you always will be. Speak to your self and what you want and say "let it be" and respond in kind to "and it is". Rest. Relax. Know in this moment that all is well and that all is done and that which you desire already is. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Let there be Life... more abundant
July 16 ~ Monday 2007
Despite the light's unusual manifestation (Being of Light), however, not one person has expressed any doubt whatsoever that it was a being, a being of light. Not only that, it is a personal being. I has a very definite personality. The love and the warmth which emanate from this being to the dying person are utterly beyond words, and he feels completely surrounded by it and taken up in it, completely at ease and accepted in the presence of this being. He sense an irresistible magnetic attraction to this light. He is ineluctably drawn to it. ~ Raymond A. Moody, M.D. (Life After Life, 1975)
Let there be Life... and there is
July 15 ~ Sunday 2007
I lost consciousness of the passage of time. Master Fwap and I could have been sitting in his room for five minutes or five hours; I couldn't tell the difference. I did notice, however, that my mind had become clear, composed and relaxed. In fact I felt very good, probably better than I had ever felt before in my life. As timeless time passed, another awareness began to overtake me: without any apparent effort on my part, I suddenly understood everything. Not that there was anything in particular to understand; I suddenly just "knew" all about life. I realized that I was one with life, and at the same time a separate and unique part of it. ~ Frederick Lenz (Surfing The Himalayas, 1995)
To know life is to be at ease with your True Self
July 14 ~ Saturday 2007
Like most of mankind's great theories, the cyclical view of the universe is at once elegant in its simplicity and utterly persuasive. Scholars, pundits and experts in all walks of life --- from Carl Jung to Arthur Schlesinger, from Paul Volcker to Lee Iacocca --- proclaim the validity of the cyclical view. ~ Samuel A. Schreiner, Jr. (Cycles, 1990)
Cycles provide an echo as to the ongoingness of Reality, the reverberation of that bump in the night which appears to send shivers up the spines of some in words such as coincidence, irony, imagination, while it taunts and excites the mystical curiosity of others in its metaphysical expression of ideas such as "As above, so below", "What you sow you shall reap", "You get back what you put out", "What goes up must come down", or "Every little movement has a meaning all its own." What are the patterns in your life? Do they work for you or against you? ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Quantum Metaphysicist)
What goes around, comes around
July 13 ~ Friday 2007
Think about what it is that you really want out of life. Reach out to someone who can lead you to places you have not yet been. That is the point. Why spend years going in circles when the path is already known by someone else. Choose to wake up. Discover the way. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar.
Waking up is going beyond the dream into the Reality where Truth answers the call
July 12 ~ Thursday 2007
Choose to know about yourself even though sometimes it is painful. The joy you will end up discovering is beyond imagining. Seek the love that is there with those who have gone before. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar.
Wake up to a day without repetitive problems
July 11 ~ Wednesday 2007
Learning esoteric information is very important. But actually dealing with one's self and finding ways to change consciousness is important. If there are no changes in consciousness there is no change. If there is no change then simply adding books and tapes to one's library has done nothing to move us from here to there. There is a way to make changes in the substructure of your thinking.
Reality, if perceived and realized, will make you free
July 10 ~ Tuesday 2007
Now we are free to say that all substance has life expressing through it. And there is no change from that divine plan of perfection until man, through his thoughts, either enhances or debauches the perfection. It is also found that man is able to influence these emanations of perfection to a larger and greater productivity of presenting greater and greater thoughts of productivity and more abundant perfection. ~ Baird T. Spalding (Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, Vol. 5)
Be perfect just as your Heavenly Father is perfect
July 9 ~ Monday 2007

July 8 ~ Sunday 2007
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
Let go and release the Beingness of Reality being held back
July 7 ~ Saturday 2007
Most of us are children of dysfunctional families. I do not mean that most of us had alcoholic parents or were sexually or otherwise abused or that we grew up in an atmosphere of physical violence. I mean that most of us grew up in homes characterized by conflicting signals, denials of reality, parental lying, and lack of adequate respect for our mind and person. I am speaking of the average home. ~ Nathaniel Branden, Ph.D. (The Power of Self-Esteem, 1992)
There is so much to learn about the pain we feel and the joy that is really there to discover
July 6 ~ Friday 2007
To draw from within is a process by which one uses the intellect to reach into the subconscious and prepare the way to the intuitive Mind which requires the filtering to be as clear and unobstructed as possible. In this way one is dealing with the Mind, the Heart and the Spirit. It is always a process of Wholeness through which realization can occur. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Truth is there to perceive if one's mind is open and unbiased beyond the human thoughts which discolor reality and personalize everything
July 5 ~ Thursday 2007
Then said a teacher, Speak to us of Teaching. And he said: No man can reveal to you anything but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge. The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding. The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it. And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you there. For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God's knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth. ~ Kahlil Gibran (The Prophet)
Truths lies in the dawning of your knowledge... reach out and receive it
July 4 ~ Wednesday 2007
With all of its faults and mistakes the United States is still the one country with the most opportunity for a person to find the freedom and the time to discover him or herself. This country is rooted in metaphysical truth and destined to open the doors to the world for great ideas and ways of implementing them. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Born in the U.S.A., Surfing U.S.A. and USA Today, eh?
July 3 ~ Tuesday 2007
We spend so much time worrying about tomorrow when the truth about what we are seeking is right there in front of us as we look deep into the now of who we are. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The ultimate answer is to do for tomorrow what you intuit today
July 2 ~ Monday 2007
We must listen to the noise within and let it go in order to hear the quietness which holds the answers. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The ultimate answer is to be still and know
July 1 ~ Sunday 2007
The man form is higher than the angel form; of all forms it is the highest. Man is the highest being in creation, because he aspires to freedom. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
The ultimate freedom is be your SELF, your I AM
