February Quote of the Day 2008

February 29 ~ Friday 2008
As the wave is one with the ocean --- never for one instant separated --- and rises and loses itself in the ocean, so man finds that by losing his life he finds it, and by saving his life he loses it. When you lose your little personal sense of life, you will find the One Life --- that which is Wonderful --- the life that is Won Now --- the heaven, here and now. ~ Walter C. Lanyon
Miracles shall follow miracles and may wonders never cease
February 28 ~ Thursday 2008
"Has it?" (your spiritual experience really shown you a great deal?) "It did not reveal to you the working of your own mind, and you became a prisoner to that experience. All experience has significance when with it there comes self-knowledge, which is the only releasing or integrating factor; but without self-knowledge, experience is a burden leading to every kind of illusion." ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti (1956)
And yet with that burden comes the desire to be free, and thus seeking is born
February 27 ~ Wednesday 2008
Everything else can wait, but your search for God cannot wait.
~ Paramahansa Yogananda
Truth is exact correspondence with reality." ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
Intention toward Oneness and recognition toward the Truth of it
February 26 ~ Tuesday 2008
The secret of harmonious living is the development of spiritual consciousness. In that consciousness, fear and anxiety disappear, and life becomes meaningful with fulfillment as its keynote." ~ Joel Goldsmith (Practicing The Presence)
To awaken is to realize the dream and then realize being awake
February 25 ~ Monday 2008
There are three ways of dealing with the principles announced in Truth. There is the deep thinking which the mind exercises respecting them. There is the speaking them forth which we do no hesitate to do. There is the careful recording of them, which is writing down what we know of them. The next is living them, which we are sure to do if we think, speak, and write them. It is by faithfully doing all these things with Spiritual doctrine that we accomplish the works of the Spirit in us. ~ Emma Curtis Hopkins (Scientific Christian Mental Practice)
To think, to know, to be... forever One with all that is
February 24 ~ Sunday 2008
We are currently at a threshold. As the emergence of the 21st century mind advances, the more we need to prepare our consciousness for the inevitable arrival of this new thinking. This new thinking is the natural flow of consciousness as it moves from one level to the next higher one, not unlike jumping up another octave in music. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Man Is Dead, 1998)
To reach beyond your self and pull your self up
February 23 ~ Saturday 2008
I was tormented by my own personal demons but I found that my needs were always met. The voice which said: "What did I do?" combined with a sense that "there was something wrong with me", left me forever walking around the chair of life keeping me busy but never really confronting exactly what was haunting me. I finally began doing "The Work". This involved looking at myself and at my ideas. Sometimes this was personal, sometimes impersonal. In Fourth Way you learn that you do your "Work" where you are. You will find that what you need to deal with is right there in front of you at that moment if you are ready to face it. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Mystical Journey: Eyes Wide Open, 2005)
Step outside of your self and discover who you really are
February 22 ~ Friday 2008
We may agree, perhaps, to understand by Metaphysics an attempt to know reality as against mere appearance, or the study of first principles or ultimate truths, or again the effort to comprehend the universe, not simply piecemeal or by fragments, but somehow as a whole. ~ Bradley (1846-1924)
To search for Truth is to express the Truth for Truth infinitely seeks itself
Happy Birthday George Washington... and my mother, now gone, who was also born on February 22.
February 21 ~ Thursday 2008
Words do not teach. True knowing comes from life experience. We offer these words, that they might stimulate your thinking. Truly, a teacher is a stimulator of thought. - Abraham Hicks (The Teachings of Abraham)
Let thought which comes your way always be true

February 20 ~ Wednesday 2008
People are wanting "change" but they are reaching out blindly to anyone who will give lip service to this hope. Change alone is not always a good thing. To have faith for something better is admirable but one should have a sense of the direction they want to go and learn how to discern the direction the wind is blowing. Even those with the best intentions can make things worse when they are not yet ready to lead. The difference between insight and ego rationalization is often a fine line. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Let Light shine within you and not pointing the way to tomorrow

February 19 ~ Tuesday 2008
The world continues to move toward being global, toward being one world and yet Oneness is not yet realized, taught or understood. To attempt to force a one world would be like putting several angry dogs into a small cage before they have learned to get along. Well, as Bette Davis said in "All About Eve", "It's going to be a bumpy night." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Let Light shine within bringing wisdom and the knowledge of Oneness

February 18 ~ Monday 2008
There are those within new technology working with scientific breakthroughs in areas that border on the paranormal and yet they act so confused as to how certain things actually work. They know that in science you have to do double blind tests and all sorts of repetitive actions and when they are able to achieve the same results they know they are on to something. They now know that remote viewing works and it is a paranormal activity, basically a psychic based science and yet they say they don't know how it works. Psychic ability works because it is possible being that in Reality there is only ONE MIND. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
If there was One Mind to begin with, how could that ever change?

February 17 ~ Sunday 2008
The desire to know Truth can only come out of the strength within because those who are weak do not wish to know Truth. this is because it requires courage to face oneself. There is nothing to fear except the unknown and that dark hall of mirrors is a walk few choose to go down. Be strong, pursue the path of discovering Truth. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Not someone else's Truth, but Absolute Truth in a metaphysical science way

February 16 ~ Saturday 2008
Disease does not really exist within the world of matter. This is because there is no matter. What we live in and interact with is consciousness and the Truth in back of all appearances is perfection. This means that there is no disease because all health is perfect. What we perceive as disease is the dis-ease or dis-harmony we feel within our consciousness that comes from feeling separate from the one reality which is Oneness. When we are separated in our belief system harmony becomes disharmony just as perfection becomes imperfection and so on. What we need in to happen is a change of consciousness which would reveal that perfect health is actually reality and the result of that would be a reflection of that knowingness. The change, the metanoia would appear as a healing. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
As a man feels in his mind, so does he also within his body

February 15 ~ Friday 2008
There is no physical universe. It is all illusion. Everything you believe that exists does so as consciousness. All of life and reality is MIND and nothing else. Finally you have discovered that reality is nothing but thought. Now are you going to do anything about thinking, about feeling, and how you can change aspects of your own consciousness to make life better. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
As a man thinks in his subconscious mind, so is he (Proverbs)

February 14 ~ Thursday 2008
Love is the awareness of the Oneness of God and it can be experienced on all levels of life. It is in relationships, recreation, creativity, in the workplace, adventure, and in raising a family. Love is the spirit of reality which draws one directly into the Divine. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I am One, I am All, I am above and below, I am the first and the last, I am you, you are me

~ Happy Valentine's Day ~
February 13 ~ Wednesday 2008
I realized this evening as I viewed some extremely creative presentations, that it isn't my own creativity which is important for my own growth but as I watched others' creativity I realized that it was my recognition of greatness itself which really was important. In that moment I was experiencing Mind Unfolding. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I am all things big and small, I am the grain of sand as I am the all

February 12 ~ Tuesday 2008
Life as we know it is all such an illusion. Have you ever wondered what a glorious reality there is to be perceived if we were only awake? The small amount of Infinity that we grasp, perceive, realize, understand, let alone accept as the result of our own True Being expressing itself out and back, infinitely unfolding the Eternity of infinite expression of Mind that we are. Breathe in deep and know that this very day you will give more than lip service to the reality of the Mind which is within us waiting to be known and expressed by us to us. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I reached out to touch my soul and discovered the reality of me written across the sky

February 11 ~ Monday 2008
In order to discover yourself, you have to submit to the Creator of yourself, my Lord and your Lord, the Lord of all the worlds, glorious and exalted is He!—–beyond anything that we can conceive. ~ Jalal al-Din al-Rumi
Namaste: the God in me salutes the God in you even as I perceive myself through the One Eye

February 10 ~ Sunday 2008
The perfect Truth is he simple Truth.  The perfect Truth is the only Truth.  Spirit is all and Spiritual existence is all.  What does one gain even if he succeeds to some degree in making his so-called human existence more harmonious if in the end he hears the words, -- I never knew you; I know only Spirit; I know only I Am to be the Way; I know Divine Life, Divine Existence to be all.  Is existence something besides the Truth, something other than Spirit, something more than was established from the beginning?  Yea, there is none besides me! ~ Lillian DeWaters (mimeograph lesson: I AM THAT I AM)
I think Truth therefore I AM that I AM
February 9 ~ Saturday 2008
“Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.”  The word “earth” in this sentence means the here and now.  Let the Heavenly existence be known to us as in the here and now, rather than place it in a far away future.  Heaven and earth do not denote two states of existence, but the prayer presupposes that Divine Revelation will make known to us that Heaven is the perfect existence in the here and now.  When this is seen we shall not hear about spiritualizing a human existence, nor materializing Spirit. The fish which Jesus multiplied did not come out of the water, nor the bread from an oven, nor was the coin made by a man’s hands. What Mind thinks is Mind, and its identities are also Spirit, Mind. Thus the words spiritualize and materialize have no place in The Living God. ~ Lillian DeWaters (mimeograph lesson: I AM THAT I AM)
I think Truth therefore I AM on earth as I AM in heaven
February 8 ~ Friday 2008
Today it is apparent that healing through metaphysical or spiritual means is protracted; not easily obtained; in fact, often seemingly impossible. The reason is that we are entering a new Era where, as Jesus said, “There shall no sign be given.” All of us have experienced “signs and wonders” in our body, world and affairs, and now something of greater importance is being demanded of us.  Surely you can see that if healing became easier, more and more certain, then we would be absolutely satisfied with healing, and so would never know or experience the great and eternal Fact that we are perfect now, without any need of healing whatsoever. ~ Lillian DeWaters (There Is None Else)
Perfect health exists now or it has never been
February 7 ~ Thursday 2008
When you reach into your soul and discover the Truth within you a piece of that lights up within the souls of everyone else and humanity moves closer to becoming One. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Remove the hindrance from the light and let it shine for all to see
February 6 ~ Wednesday 2008
Since a quote usually appears here I will begin with one from the Maharishi of Transcendental Meditation:
The important thing is this: to be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. ~ Maharish Mahesh Yogi
(The Maharishi passed on yesterday, February 5, 2008, some sources said he was 91)
The law of the vacuum is to create a space and let the universe fill it

From Wikipedia: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (born "Mahesh Prasad Varma" according to some sources, and "Mahesh Srivastava" according to others, between 1911 and 1918 in Jabalpur, India; died February 5, 2008, in Vlodrop, The Netherlands) founded and developed the Transcendental Meditation technique and related programs and initiatives, including schools and a university with campuses in the United States and China. He was born in India, around 1917; various years are given for his birth: most frequently 1911, 1917, and 1918, and some sources state he was born on 12 January.
Around 1939 he became a disciple of Swami Brahmananda Saraswati who, from 1941 to 1953, was the Shankaracharya (spiritual leader) of Jyotir Math, located in the Indian Himalayas. Maharishi credits the Shankaracharya with inspiring his teachings. Since his first global tour in 1958, Maharishi's techniques for human development have been taught worldwide. He continued to focus on making all aspects of the Vedic Literature widely available. He became well-known in the Western world due to The Beatles having visited him in 1968. Starting in 1990, Maharishi coordinated his global activities from his residence in Vlodrop, the Netherlands.
On January 11th, 2008, he announced his retirement from his normal activities: "Invincibility is irreversibly established in the world. My work is done. My designated duty to Guru Dev is fulfilled." He resolved to use all his remaining time to complete his commentary on the Veda. He passed away less than a month later.

February 5 ~ Tuesday 2008
MIND IS THE ARBITER of life. It is the creator and shaper of conditions, and the recipient of its own results. It contains within itself both the power to create illusion and to perceive reality. Mind is the infallible weaver of destiny. Thought is the thread, good and evil deeds are the "warp and woof" or foundation, and the web, woven upon the loom of life, is character. Mind clothes itself in garments of its own making. ~ James Allen (Out from the Heart, 1904)
In back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality: MIND
February 4 ~ Monday 2008
For I AM your REAL Self, that Something in you which you KNOW has made you all you REALLY are, that has inspired, and cautioned, and chided, and urged, and led you on and on, despite hardships, obstacles, suffering, failure, until you have, in a dim, half-conscious way grown to rely upon It, without knowing definitely why. ~ Joseph S. Benner (The Way Out, 1956)
and yet, I AM all there is and all there ever will be
February 3 ~ Sunday 2008
There are two ways to spread the light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. ~ Edith Wharton
I AM the Light and as I shine I am enlightened
February 2 ~ Saturday 2008
Evil does not exist, but only in man's mind, created by his own evil thinking, and it is a very tangible power there --- so long as he continues to feed and vitalize it by entertaining such thoughts and allowing them to influence or control his speech and actions. ~ Joseph S. Benner (Brotherhood, 1916)
There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so ~ Wm Shakespeare
February 1 ~ Friday 2008
But here is the secret by which you can regain your power, ---you need only to remember Who you are, that your home is back in the center, in the Kingdom there where I AM ---where the God of y IS; and then to re-focus your attention and interest there by seeing and feeling yourself centered therein and surrounded by and filled with My Love, ---when you will actually and truly be there. ~ Joseph S. Benner (Brotherhood, 1916)
I AM --- I WAS -- I WILL BE... Eternally Infinite Consciousness and Being
