October Quote of the Day 2008
October 31 ~ Friday 2008
Halloween's original source and also traditional meanings are not nearly as important as how it has evolved as a holiday and the meaning it holds today. Halloween symbolizes humankind's inate understanding of "the many roles" which we play in life and how all of these "costumes" are not our Real Selves but rather aspects of belief systems which we are learning about and also those with which we are still wrestling. In our observation of the personalities we discover within ourselves we must remember to acknowledge: "With all of the roles I play in life, these are not who I really am but rather what I am is Consciousness which is not of the many roles I play." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Remove your mask and allow the Light to emerge dissolving all shadows

On one side are those who believe all childhood memories are legitimate, including those that have been repressed. Would children lie about such issues as abuse? On the other side are those who claim to be falsely accused. They are convinced that therapists are introducing these ideas to the alleged victim. And they have suffered extreme pain, especially when they are accused falsely by their own children. Major controversy exists in the psychology community, on radio and television, and among the general public concerning the truth of memories. What is this all about? Why is this topic so controversial and so emotionally charged? ~ Arlys Norcross McDonald, Ph.D. (Repressed Memories: Can You Trust Them?, 1995)
There are beliefs, there are facts, and then there is the truth... in that order
October 29 ~ Wednesday 2008
In reality God is forever in process of movement within us, that He may manifest Himself (All-Good) more fully through us. Our affirming, backed by faith, is the link that connects our conscious human need with His power and supply.
They who have claimed their birthright by thus calmly affirming their oneness with God know how free they can be from human planning and effort, after they have called into operation this marvelous power of affirmation. This power has healed the sick, brought joy in place of mourning, literally opened prison doors and bidden the prisoner go free, without the claimants calling for human assistance. ~ H. Emilie Cady (Lessons In Truth, 1894)
In consciousness we must not believe, we must know that these things are true
October 28 ~ Tuesday 2008
Our ethics are diluted by superstition, our lives by self-created anxieties. Our visions have yet to equal some of his nobler glimpses of a future beyond our material world of easy transport, refrigeration, and rocketry. The newfound land Bacon sighted was not something to be won in a generation or by machines alone. It would have to be drawn slowly, by infinite and continuing effort, out of minds whose dreams must rise superior to the existing world and shape that world by understanding of its laws into something more consistent with man's better nature. ~ Loren Eiseley (The Man Who Saw Through Time: A Hidden World, 1961)
Man's better nature is to be found in the bosom of God
October 27 ~ Monday 2008

Heaven and earth, wave and particle, individuality and community may cross boundaries, go beyond themselves, and transgress their limits: form may pass into light and light back to form. But the story I'm telling you will not: the fullest expression of the purpose of my life, from beginning to end, will continue. (alternative version of "Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass away", Matt. 24:35) ~ Neil Douglas-Klotz (The Hidden Gospel, 1999)
Wave and particle, as above so below, within and without, what's it all about?

All is revealed to be denied. ~ Robin Scott ("M" of Pop Musik)
The Truth is not carefully hidden but it is indeed carefully ignored. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
And in the end only the Truth remains
October 22 ~ Wednesday 2008
The concept of One Mind---the idea that every human being operates with the same creative consciousness that defines Spirit, that indeed we are each both an expression and an agent of Creative Consciousness---is central to the New Thought paradigm. One may immediately recognize it to be true, or come to this point of view through meditation, contemplation, study, or simple scientific observation. But come to it one must, for in this process, in this spiritual philosophy, we are not petitioning a separate Deity who may or may not choose to grant our wish for reasons that are never clear to us. We are exercising our inalienable right and power as agencies of Spirit to intend desired conditions into direct experience knowing as we do so that we shall be successful in direct proportion to the depth of our conviction. ~ Dianne Edleman, Ph.D. (How To Use Spiritual Mind Treatment, 2005)
When there is only One Mind, it must of necessity be yours
October 21 ~ Tuesday 2008
Spiritual development means the ability to stand still, or stand aside, and let Infinite Intelligence lift your burdens and fight your battles. When the burden of resentment is lifted, you experience a sense of relief! You have a kindly feeling for everyone, and all the organs of your body begin to function properly. ~ Florence Scovel Shinn (The Wisdom of Florence Scovel Shinn, 1989 previously 1940)

It is so chaotic keeping all the conflicting facts in order, huh?
October 18 ~ Saturday 2008
Your body is a world, too. When I first came to Ayurveda, I was deeply impressed by the following verse in the ancient texts:
As is the human body, so is the cosmic body. As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind. As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm.
These words are subject to many interpretations. What they signify to me is that when I go about my everyday existence, I am in charge of two worlds, the little one in me and the big one around me. My appraisal of every minute detail "out there" --- the sun, the sky, the chances of rain, the words other people say, the shadows cast by office buildings --- is matched by an event "in here". Infinite choice is open at every second for me to alter the shape of the world, for it has no shape other than what I give it. ~ Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D. (Quantum Healing: Exploring The Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine, 1989)
As above, so below, as a man thinketh, his world reels to and fro
October 17 ~ Friday 2008
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States when men were free. ~ Renaldus Magnus
Freedom is absolutely necessary for the progress in science and the liberal arts. ~ Baruch Spinoza
That thing is called free, which exists solely by the necessity of its own nature, and of which the action is determined by itself alone. ~ Baruch Spinoza
Man is at best the property of freedom. Freedom is the encompassing and penetrating nature, in which man becomes man only when he is anchored htere. That means the nature of man is grounded in freedom. But freedom itself is a determination of true Being in general which transcends all human being. Insofar as man is as man, he must participate in this determination of Being, and man is, insofar as he brings about this participation in freedom. ~ Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose ~ Janis Joplin

As you begin your time of meditation, remember to relax. Loose and let go of all tension of mind or body, knowing for yourself: "I am not my thoughts; I am not my emotions; I am not my desires. I am the changeless identity who says to my thoughts, 'Come,' or 'Go.' I now say to tension, 'Go!' I now say to peace and stillness, 'Come.'" ~ Charles Roth (Mind: The Master Power, 1974)
Breathe in, breathe out, hold on, let go, accuse, release, give, receive
October 14 ~ Tuesday 2008
Once you know the Truth, it becomes a key to one's spiritual psyche that immediately unlocks the door to Reality. The nature of Consciousness is in the understanding of the Principle which operates the projection of Mind that plays itself out in our lives in a manner which is in keeping with our collective state of consciousness and our individual eccentric belief systems. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Quantum Metaphysicist)

A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others. ~ Ayn Rand
Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men. ~ Ayn Rand
Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong. ~ Ayn Rand

The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me. ~ Ayn Rand

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind. ~ J. Krishnamurt (Freedom Of The Known)
The only point to separting is the coming together... let it be
October 8 ~ Wednesday 2008
If you take the responsibility for your life you can start changing it. Slow will be the change, only in the course of time will you start moving into the world of light and crystallization, but once you are crystallized you will know what real revolution is. Then share your revolution with others; it has to go that way, from heart to heart. ~ Osho
You must realize there is something to change before there is a desire to change
October 7 ~ Tuesday 2008
Politics is the philosophy of our urges to control and be controlled and how we would subconsciously wish our lives were operating if you could imagine it in our minds. Mostly this is based on that which we do not understand more than that which we actually know. We seek to fulfill that which we have not yet been able to accomplish in our own lives. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
When we finally realize there is only One Mind all else changes... because it disappears
October 6 ~ Monday 2008
We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will. ~ Chuck Palahniuk

October 5 ~ Sunday 2008

One thought about our world today is that humanity spends more and more time putting disagreements outside themselves as they blame others, i.e., the government, God, parents, friends, neighbors, lovers, because collectively we are getting closer and closer to having to deal with ourselves and who we really are in terms of Consciousness. It is time to look within, face ourselves and take responsibility for who we are, our life and accept our destiny. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
What seems as a negative situation is the challenge we need to discover Reality
