Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
May Quote of the Day 2008
May 31 ~ Saturday 2008
...should you ever appear to suffer a headache, do not blame it on nerves, something you ate, or upon wrong thinking, but turn to the ENTIRETY of GOD wherein there is no time, no destiny-schedule. There you will not be listed for "headache" or for any other form of God's absence! You will find no stops or starts in Mind; no desolate or barren experiences through which you are slated to pass; no accidents or unsavory moments. You are not a fated passenger on the train of time, or the rocket-ship of destiny, subject to predetermined tables of foibles and follies. You are not a puppet of yesterday or tomorrow. GOD IS THE ENTIRETY OF YOUR BEING, and THAT BEING IS ETERNALLY PERFECT NOW! ~ Alfred Aiken (The Unchallenged Self, 1954)
In back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality ~ Thane Walker
May 30 ~ Friday 2008
Deep in the heart of man lies buried this same secret --- he feels a God-like something imaging itself in his thought --- he thinks also of lofty hills and blue skies, and he dreams of untrammeled walks through green pastures and beside still waters --- but it, too, is buried deep in an earth of material reasoning and thinking, and over this is a thousand and one mortal laws and human opinions which even freeze the ground tighter about him. And he, too, tells his secret to no one --- because it is so sacred --- and also because he has no words to express it --- and then, too, because no one would understand it. ~ Walter C. Lanyon (Embers, 1918)
Was it not the renewing of the mind by contemplation of the real --- early in the day before the contemplation of the unreal had darkened the thought so that they could not see the small, white thing which lay on the ground? (Manna) ~ Walter C. Lanyon (Embers, 1918)
What a happy translation follows, for God has relieved you of the burden of passing judgment on anything --- even you shall not condemn yourself. ~ Walter C. Lanyon (Embers, 1918)
To perceive the absolute is the translation of the mind
May 29 ~ Thursday 2008
Of the deepest things we will discover about the world they don't begin to compare with the deepest things we have yet to discover about ourselves. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
All is revealed to be denied ~ M (Pop Muzik)
May 28 ~ Wednesday 2008
You can never go home again but if you do not leave you shall surely die on the vine. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Stagnation is death and moving backwards is suicide
May 27 ~ Tuesday 2008
Even listening to many of today's scientists talking about the creation of the universe and in the laying out of their theories and speculations it is revealed that even they still believe in physicality and matter and solid and time, space and change as being the actual reality that they are left to deal with in determining the truth of what reality actually is and will continue to be. It is clear that if scientists do not at least become knowledgeable of the mystical perceptions of reality as it pertains to Consciousness as being all there is these scientists will achieve nothing in the way of dealing with our world yet to come. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
All that exists was an idea first, therefore everything is still simply an idea ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
May 26 ~ Monday 2008
Nothing that we have discovered did it manifest to us anywhere other than in our mind. Even the appearances of the existence of what we believe in the realm of physicality still is perceived ONLY within our mind. The truth is everything always happens only in our minds and it never happens anywhere else because there is no where else. And if we believe that there is, we believe that only in our minds. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I do believe it... I do believe it's true... oh oh ohhhhhhhh... it's all happening at the zoo ~ Paul Simon
May 25 ~ Sunday 2008
God is All there is!  God is ever-present! God fills all space!  There is nothing but God!  How many of us have uttered these magical words over and over in an hour of need, then to find the clouds break away and the light dawn in our experience?  Yet, how many there are who need to grasp the deep, basic meaning hidden in these simple yet stupendous sentences. It is such apparently innocent statements as these, understood and practiced, that cause the unrealities named sin, disease, sorrow and death to flee away, and the glory of God to be seen, known and felt on earth as it is in heaven. ~ Lillian DeWaters (God Is All)
Omniscient ~ Omnipotent ~ Omnipresent ~ Omnivorous, huh!?!?!
May 24 ~ Saturday 2008
Baraka: the oral tradition... This "fire walk of the mind" is made possible because of the Fourth Way student/teacher relationship in class. There is but One Consciousness in True Reality and it is contact with this higher state during class that allows change to take place. The student must make changes on an individual level and yet there are no separate levels in truth, therefore the students become part of the Mind that is operating in class, thereby providing a "leap potential." This may even go unnoticed by some, but necessary nonetheless for the student, the teacher, and the ultimate reason for why all of this is unfolding at this time. More often than not, however, students will consciously realize they have been through something even if they can't describe what it is verbally. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Fire in the Mouth, Holy Spirit, Mind Meld, Baraka, Oneness... in the world of unfoldment
May 23 ~ Friday 2008
Everything begins in mind and everything must end in mind. Taking the statement of being from which to line up your life or from which to draw your conclusions, begin NOW to say and realize: "I am alive with the life of God, and that life is perfect." Continuing the realization: "Man is that One Life and has no life apart from God, and has not a single quality underived from that One Life." The deduction is: NOTHING APART FROM THE ONE LIFE IS PRESENT OR HAS ANY POWER. In words of the analogy, if two plus two equals four, it is not three, no matter what it appears to be. ~ Frances Wad Gott (Science of Being, 1923)
It isn't in the words, but in the understanding of the words ...and in the "I AM"
May 22 ~ Thursday 2008
No one should ever be afraid to look at themselves. Nothing about you can be so bad that it isn't overcome by the incredible goodness and brilliance of who you really are once you see and understand the Light of yourself. But you must look at everything in order to let go of the false sense of who you are in order that your Divine Reality can emerge to your consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Stand in the Light of the only Reality there is... the Self of you which is all there is
May 21 ~ Wednesday 2008
We are each of us melodies in the Divine symphony, and we can join the orchestration of the whole with the music of our minds. ~ Jean Houston
Dance to the song which best reveals the you hidden deep inside of you who is closest to God
May 20 ~ Tuesday 2008
Reaching people with spiritual and psychological truths is not as easy as simply talking about it to open minded interested parties because those people are few and far between. Subconsciously, humankind knows if it is willing to change or not to change and the ego is in control in most cases and puts up the famous fight of a lifetime when it is the life of the controlling factor of the human ego. People can be educated in psychology, well versed in metaphysical principles, open to philosophical ideas which lift humankind up to the threshold of the kingdom of heaven, but if one is not desiring to know the "self" of the ego and the "Self" of the "I AM" there will be no change in consciousness that opens one's door to new ideas that promote inner change through inner work. You must WANT to go beyond where you find yourself to be right now. Knock and the door shall be opened. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Ask and it shall be given, as you leave the world of illusion behind
May 19 ~ Monday 2008
There is but one door through which all man must pass and that is the DOOR OF TRUTH. Pass through it beloved, wherever and whenever you find it open. And should perchance, it swing closed and you know there is Truth dwelling behind that closed door, never fear to knock upon the door and arouse the Teacher. The true disciple never tires in his quest and the Initiate is always gracious. ~ Frater Achad (Melchizedek Truth Principles, 1963)
Knock and the door shall be opened, seek and you will find
May 18 ~ Sunday 2008
The mind can lead you to a dry well and the heart can take you to more pain and the soul can drag you through episode after episode of turmoil as it continues to reveal what you already believe. Do you seek confirmation or change? You can have either one but you cannot have both. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I hear you knocking but you can't come in... because you have decided no one is home
May 17 ~ Saturday 2008
Further proof that memory is not cerebrocentric lies in the obvious fact that there is no mechanical means of measuring mental function or potential. If mind was a biochemical phenomenon, it could be measured. Since no one can calculate the potential of mind, or even define the nature of thought, it follows that mind supersedes all physical considerations. ...Memory is a non-sensory and non-physiological function of the mind beyond the control of the brain. ~ Dr. Doug Galias (I.A.T. Institute of Advanced Thinking)
The mind is not in the body, the body is in the mind ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
May 16 ~ Friday 2008
Those who are moving toward a spiritual understanding will come across much information as it pertains to the end of time as we know it. Most people cannot understand this "ending" as simply the end of our current state of consciousness. This ending is the signal of the beginning of a new world, a new self and a new realization of Truth. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
There is no ending in reality but rather the line drawn in the cosmic sand
May 15 ~ Thursday 2008
All changes even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves: we must die to one life before we can enter into another! ~ Anatole France (The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard)
Dying to be born again, letting go in order to move on, letting go of ignorance in order to know
May 14 ~ Wednesday 2008
Relationships are where you discover your self if you are willing to understand and admit that everything is a mirror. Universal Law states that reality is out and back. This process is a principle by which we experience reality. We get back what we put out. Therefore in all of our relationships we have reflected our own states of consciousness and we are seeing ourselves and the belief system within us. What emerges are clues about ourselves and the keys through which we might unlock the mysteries of our destiny. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Look beyond the shadows and discover the light
May 13 ~ Tuesday 2008
Be concerned only that you are seeing and accepting Truth as Absolute. Here you are in the Light. You see and think with the divine Mind, you know Consciousness and Body to be one, and to be perfect and spiritual always. One may have declared many times that there is one Mind only, while at the same time believing in the teaching of other human minds. Since one Mind alone exists, then this Mind is the only Consciousness. ~ Lillian DeWaters (The Voice of Revelation, 1945)
From Mind does all emerge as a movie upon the projector's screen
May 12 ~ Monday 2008
He that understands a Teaching, owns the Teaching. He who sees a Teaching from afar, will forever feel detached. One who thinks a Teaching belongs to only him or herself cannot grasp its fullest meaning. Any Teaching which is not a principle that is Eternal is transient illusion. The understanding of any real Teaching prompts one to make that knowledge available to others. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Masters of the Near West)
From deep within one's soul is the realization that they were there when all Teaching began
May 11 ~ Sunday 2008
I will take you to the center of your soul
and out the top of God's head. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar

The grand mystical mirror which reflects to you is all you are. This too you must sort out over time but for now you must know you exist, you are mind, you are truth and you are all there is. You can hear an inner voice speak to you and it says: I will take you to the center of your soul and out the top of God's head. You're the I AM that I AM. You are the mystery of the ages. You are the mathematical table. You are the boundless stars stretching across the sky. You were never born and you will never die. You are the great I AM. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (The I AM Connection: Journey Into The Template of Infinity, 2002)
I AM THAT I AM today, yesterday and forever
May 10 ~ Saturday 2008
The true understanding of the political atmosphere always lies within the consciousness of humankind. The duality of existence creates a manifestation of a divided mindset which is imbalanced and disordered on either side of the equation even the the left thinks they are intelligent as does the right. And both are correct but from incomplete perspectives much like men thinking they are smarter than women and vice versa. The true politics would be the "Androgyny of Political Expression" and this would indeed be a "change" and something "new" which would focus on the needs of both the individual and the collective but in ways where no one would be left out or taken advantage of in negative ways.
Sleep is the opiate of the people; make they someday wake up ~ D.L.
May 9 ~ Friday 2008
A mind that seeks to understand the fundamental necessity of change must ceaselessly ask itself: ‘Is it possible to change without the action of will?’. . . What will break up the center of this constant accumulation of memory, of experience, of knowledge, from which there is action? ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
We are faced with a breakdown of general social order and human values that threatens stability throughout the world. Existing knowledge cannot meet this challenge. Something much deeper is needed, a completely new approach. I am suggesting that the very means by which we try to solve our problems is the problem. The source of our problems is within the structure of thought itself. This may seem strange because our culture prides itself on thought being its highest achievement. ~ David Bohm
If the problem is within our consciousness, we must change our consciousness ~ D.L.
May 8 ~ Thursday 2008
The concept of healing is so misunderstood. You cannot actually heal in the human ego sense of making "change". You can but create circumstances through which you help facilitate the ongoing healing process. But even beyond that, you can only change your consciousness to knowing that "perfect health" is already the Reality in back of time, space and change and that this projected version of reality in your consciousness is all based on flimsy belief systems which are projected out of duality and once Oneness is realized the illusion disappears and the Reality of perfect health, for example, is finally perceived in its rightful place. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The Essence of Reality is that of wholeness, completeness and perfection... there's your healing
May 7 ~ Wednesday 2008
As I have said, we can no longer ignore the truth of Beingness. Infinite Mind is pressing this ultimate Truth upon us with increasing acceleration. This accounts for the unusual interest in Zen in the Western World during the past few years; especially among the younger and more educated generations. The basic pattern of Zen is that you are part of nature, "Modern physics has put into laboratory manuals truths which the Zen masters have been expressing... for centuries. The Truth is that a tree or a stump or a stone is alive with atomic motions as their electrons whirl at fantastic speeds around their nuclei. The truth is also that all atoms are alike, be they found in a stump or stone or human being. It is only when they assemble themselves, or are assembled, into different patterns that they form molecules of differing substance. Hence a stump is not a stone nor is it a human being. Yet the fact remains that all three are made of the same basic ingredients, the atoms. Surely, this tells us that we re one with Nature and that we should not think of ourselves as one thing and stumps and stones as other things." ~ Thane of Hawaii (The Philosophy of Ontology, 1993)
All is God stuff and all is One
May 6 ~ Tuesday 2008
The most important characteristic of the Eastern world view is the awareness of the unity and mutual interrelation of all things and events, the experience of all phenomena in the world as manifestations of a basic oneness. All things are seen as interdependent and inseparable parts of this cosmic whole; as different manifestations of the same ultimate reality. ... In Eastern philosophy, the main terms used in Hinduism and Buddhism have dynamic connotations. The word Brahman is derived from the Sanskrit root 'brih' (to grow) and thus suggests a reality which is dynamic and alive. ~Fritjof Capra (The Tao of Physics)
There is more than meets the Third Eye
May 5 ~ Monday 2008
The Truth about anything is all there is about that thing.  There is not something else existing as a falsity or a lie.  Note this carefully: since falsity has no existence in Truth, falsity has no existence at all!  Never attempt to impersonalize error or falsity.  Any such notion is as ridiculous and worthless as would be an effort to impersonalize a flat earth! Not a single thing can be done to falsity, unreality and a lie – because – they have no existence!  There is not the existence of the Real, and then beside this, the existence of the unreal.  There is not the True, and something else present which is untrue or false.  Truth is the only existence there is or can ever be! If a thing is not true or of the Truth, then it has no existence anywhere or at all. ~ Lillian DeWaters (Truth Is The Only Existence)
Therefore Truth is all there is
May 4 ~ Sunday 2008
The desire and interest in learning about "truth" and spiritual things will lead one to making changes in who you are. If you do not want to change there is no purpose in learning spiritual things. Just in learning about spiritual things you will find that you become a new person, over and over again. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Learning is the process of dying to ignorance. Ignorance is the "ignoring" of truth - D.L.
May 3 ~ Saturday 2008
There are no situations, minds, bodies or thoughts to handle or treat. There is no personality to address in treatment. Divine Mind sees Divine Mind perfect and complete, lacking nothing, ever aware of Itself to be Spirit---the one and only "I."
The only thing left to do is to know the Truth within for you are all there is
May 2 ~ Friday 2008
Dreams are one's own window to his or her subconscious thoughts and though sometimes extremely abstract and obtuse one can still work to reveal the seemingly secret message. It appears there from deep within the recesses of the mind and holds the key to unlocking the door through which one can arrive at liberation. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Director, Q.M.I. Quanum Metaphysics Institute)
Awaken and allow the veil to be lifted from your eyes.
May 1 ~ Thursday 2008
Truth stands alone. Truth has no opposite. Truth has no supposititious antipode. Truth has no second. The teaching that we must develop from one state to another emerge from matter into Spirit, and be translated from a material existence into the spiritual World, is a denial of the sacred, everlasting Truth that GOD is within us; CHRIST is within us; The Kingdom of God is within us---right where we are, here and now. ~ Lillian DeWaters (The Voice of Revelation, 1945)
Truth stand alone for it is all there is
