January Quote of the Day 2009
Saturday, January 31 ~ 2009
Some feel torn between choices they think that they must make in deciding the direction of their lives. But whether you choose career or personal growth, understand that if you pursue personal growth, it can help your career but not necessarily the other way around. A real well rounded education in spiritual science can help one to become confident, assertive, intelligent, creative, organized and focused. This will happen when they begin to understand the Higher Levels of knowing who they are, discovering intention, becoming more open, developing intuition, grasping balance and harmony and coming to glimpse the oneness in all things. Reach within yourself and you will develop your outer abilities. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. "a school of quantum space")
Come to your center and you will see all things ~ D.L.

Thane Walker was a peculiar man as all "Teachers" are and of necessity must be, since originality is a sign of Mind Unfolding. I have not totally reconciled his "manner of teaching" as it pertains to the human aspects but as to the material itself I have no disappointments. I am grateful to have had the experience and it was part of my Destiny to undergo such a spiritual initiation. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Celebrating 100 Years of Thane of Hawaii)
There is always time to honor the insight given and received for it is Mind Unfolding

We should have positive expectations of what is in the universe, not fears and dreads. We are made with the realization that we're not Earthbound, and that our acceptance of the universe offers us room to explore and extend outward. It's like being in a dark room and imagining all sorts of terrors. But when we turn on the light--technology--suddenly it's just a room where we can stretch out and explore. If the resources here on Earth are limited, they are not limited in the universe. We are not constrained by the limitations of our planet.... As children have to leave the security of family and home life to insure growth into mature adults, so also must humankind leave the security and familiarity of Earth to reach maturity and obtain the highest attainment possible for the human race. ~ Nichelle Nichols (The Future is Now)
The earth represents our human consciousness which compels us to release ourselves from its gravity in order to pursue our Cosmic Quest in search of ourselves. ~ D.L.

We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others, that in the end we become disguised to ourselves. ~ François de la Rochefoucauld 1613-1680)
Of the many roles we play in life, these are not our real Self, what we are is consciousness, which is not of the many roles we play ~ Thane Walker

The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, is in its loyalty to each other. ~ Mario Puzo
The above quote was used in this week's Criminal Minds program and it related it to some serial killing within families and how certain families, in this case Romanian gypsies, create a loyalty which becomes a dependency that secludes the family unit from the rest of society. I could see how this relates to situations with cults and with the mindset of "Children of Adult Alcoholics." Whenever one loses their personal sense of self and takes on overwhelmingly the self of a group or a family unit, the sense of personal worth and esteem becomes lost and the spiritual quest turns into a complacent acceptance of a stagnant chore which no longer has meaning except to maintain unity but not liberation. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Repetition becomes sleep and sleep becomes stagnation

Free will is the function of the Master within us. Our 'will' is the supremacy of one desire over another. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff

This day following the day honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is the inauguration of a man of color who will bring about much change, some good, some perhaps not good. But ultimately it is Mind Unfolding and our history continues to play the mirror of our lives and the constant need for change. In that sense all that will happen is the outpicturing of our collective unconscious and will provide what we need to prevail over our lesser selves. To honor this day for the inauguration of President Barrack H. Obama are some quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase. ~ Dr. Martin Luther King
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it. ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Thought forms a world of its own in which it is everything. It reifies itself and imagines there's nothing else but what it...thinks about. ~ David Bohm (Revision, relating information from "The Secret Oral Teachings in Tibetan Buddhist Sects")
Thoughts are things and things are thoughts ~ D.L.

Blaming others comes from our own inability, or refusal, to take responsibility for our own actions. This is why forgiveness is so important. The reason forgiveness is important is not to make someone else feel good, but rather to heal the wounds within ourselves when we hold someone responsible for wrong doings and this anger and pain within us causes us "disease" and pain and negative states of consciousness. Also forgiving others sets them free to be who they really are in Ultimate Reality and creates the vacuum necessary for them to release themselves. What we feel within our own mind is just that, something within our own mind, and that is where the healing must begin. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
To err is human, to forgive, divine

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people. ~ Carl Jung
The principle of "out and back" operates in all ways
Thursday, January 15 ~ 2009
There is no other God than the Highest God of your imagining. There is no other earth, nor star, nor planet than that of your imagining--- for that is imaging forth the Truth and only God knows the highest attributes. We are, therefore, no longer mortals after we are given this Law of Life. We are gifted with sure immortality. We see with eyes that see only the Truth---all facets of Truth---for our eyes see through mere appearances of things as others have created them. Our world is a world as wide as the great Universe, and will be wider. For we are each to create our own world, surrounded by our own creation. This is high teaching. This is potent knowledge. It swallows up in its bigness all the lesser things that would seem to beset mere mortals. For you have been given something that you have been reaching out towards---a gift of Life itself---that is greater than Faith and Hope---great than Grace and Love---greater even than a Golden Thread to touch whenever a problems seems to confront you, or a decision is to be made, or a disappointment to be overcome. This Golden Thread is the guideline that will lead you to your real self---to the God-self---and the Thread is given to you as your gift from on high, to bless you for your loving response to the words of life that have enriched your lives. ~ John Raymond Berry, editor (The Golden Thread, 1970)
The Golden Thread is the Principle of all Reality which weaves its way through all great Teachings
Wednesday, January 14 ~ 2009
When a theory or idea is expounded it sets up a T-field which, if conditions are right, may arouse sympathetic "oscillations" in the minds of millions, just as a small pebble can cause ripples in the largest pond. ...In the realm of thought, like attracts like and a T-field will only get a response from those minds which are, so to speak, on the same wave length of thought, just as a radio transmitter will only affect those receivers which are tuned to the same frequency. ~ E. W. Russell (Design For Destiny, 1971)
As the dots connect the Principle of One Mind becomes clearer and clearer

People need to be more artistic, even if they think that they are not. Everyone is artistic. Some are better, that's all, so what? But you can reach down deep inside of you and create a garden, an omelet, decorate your living room, just move furniture around, paint something, cut pictures out of a travel magazine and create a collage. Your innate self is Creativity. Dive into the pool with the gods. ~ Richard Kula
Infinite Variety is the Essence of the wand of magic
Monday, January 12 ~ 2009
A room is not good in only one color and either is your life. Enjoy many moods and colors and allow them to blend and speak to you as they mirror your inner moods and satisfy your need for personal reflection. ~ Richard Kula
Infinite Variety is the Essence of the Truth of Reality

Within the small sphere of our life we can stare into the past but only our future is within our control. ~ author unknown (NUMB3RS)
However, view the past within you, confront it, hold it up to the Truth, let it go, refile, release
Saturday, January 10 ~ 2009
There are certain basic instinctual desires of humans and they must fight to go beyond these motivations simply to make a small amount of space for self-improvement. 1. Hunger, 2. Sex (love, procreation), Money (power, control, career, ego). We like to think we are above these physical impulses but if you use self-observation you will see the power that they have over you. But simply the ability to self-observe raises you above these impulses. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Go beyond the obvious, confront yourself not others
Friday, January 9 ~ 2009
If there were no Consciousness to be conscious of it, it would be impossible to say there is anything. It couldn't be said there was a single flower, tree or mountain. There would be none of the riches on earth-not to mention the earth itself. It couldn't be said there was a moon, stars, or one speck of the entire universe. Without Consciousness, simply nothing could be said to exist, not even Life Itself. In fact, one couldn't even be conscious of a nothingness! ~ Peter Francis Dziuban (Consciousness Is All, 2006)
Mind is all you think about it, think nothing less, think all you can
Thursday, January 8 ~ 2009
Often I hear people argue that if reincarnation were true, would it make sense that you couldn't remember anything from your previous life, or that you would continue into another life and not remember this one? This is an absurd argument. The ongoingness of Life has nothing to do with memory, per se. Most people can't remember what they had for breakfast yesterday... or last week on Monday... or who was the third person they made love to? How often have you misplaced an item and you had it just an hour earlier? Do these things mean we aren't alive now? No. It means that the expansion of consciousness or becoming more awake over time brings with it the ability to better remember who we are. And this goes hand in hand with knowing who we were in our previous lives. But most of us are doing the best we can in the here and now and mixing that up with more information than we can handle would hardly be expeditious. Just get to knowing your "I AM" and move on from there. ~ Derek Lamar
And remember to do that everyday

Things are changing. I mean really. Craig Ferguson is really funny. And who thought Richard Lewis could still be funny. And that doctor with the finger and the glitter. I don't know. My mother-in-law thought I should be a plumber. Now she could be a comedian. ~ Derek Lamar
What's funny is that life is a joke, right?

Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans. ~ John Lennon
Our plans are things which can succeed, but maybe they shouldn't
Monday, January 5 ~ 2009
The vision of Truth in and of itself requires a realignment of one's consciousness as the old thoughts and beliefs pass away and the new realization of what is actual Reality is refiled within one's mind. This is what is meant by "metanoia" and the changing of one's thinking. It is to see in the light where before there was darkness and not knowing, to be awake in the Spirit of true essence whereas before one was asleep, to experience peace where before there was constant nervousness, confusion, discontent, worry and unbelief. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
A New Year opens as in the realization of the Being which is One Mind... know this is the beginning of discovering, learning and reawakening of Joy
Sunday, January 4 ~ 2009
I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time,

Divide in yourself the mechanical from the conscious, see how little there is of the conscious, how seldom it works, and how strong is the mechanical - mechanical attitudes, mechanical intentions, mechanical thoughts, mechanical desires. ~ P.D. Ouspensky
Wake up! Think about it! Go figure. Do tell! You must be kidding. Say what?!?!
Friday, January 2 ~ 2009
You can work toward a goal but the success will be what you experience getting closer and closer toward that goal. ~ Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Plans must change or you haven't changed along the way
Thursday, January 1 ~ 2009
Do not dream of things to bring about to resolve something which happened to you in your past. Live you life to discover who you are and relish in the discovery of that divine force which flows through you for this truly is who you are and it will heal all pains from the past. ~ Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Change is the unfoldment of the infinite variety of reality and this is God
