Mahalo nui loa, Derek

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~ Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.E.)

When a child shares an emotional critical (as seen in the personal biorhythms of each person) with one or both parents, he/she feels unloved. Circumstances that keep parents out of the home for prolonged periods due to ill health, occupation, marriage breakdown, etc. can leave a child feeling rejected. When parents are too busy to meet nurturing requirements, feelings of rejection and abandonment can result. This deprivation or emotional neglect, is a common error in raising a child that disturbs the normal development of the need for love. A pervasive loneliness locks into the inner child and remains for life. Without treatment, codependent issues based on fear will control future intimate relations. ~ Ruth LeRoux, R.N. (BioRhythm Profiles: First Evidence Based Psychology, 2009)

Why are we hardest on those we are so close to? Perhaps it is because the closer we are to someone else, the closer we are to ourselves. In this realization we must contemplate the myriad of reasons we say and do things with those we interact with often and those whom we love. Often we treat strangers even better than those who mean so much to us. In the end it always comes down to how we feel about ourselves. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar

We must begin to understand that what we believe to be true is not necessarily true and most likely some variation of illusion.

How does one create a class? It is easy really. Oh sure, intuition works and Higher Mind writing it for you works but along with that you simply must know what you are Teaching. Pick an idea. Start with Truth since that would be what you are Teaching. So, how about Infinity? Strip reality down to its foundation. Infinity is the Essence of Life and of Space and of the Self. Reality is Infinite. There is the obvious, of course: there are no two fingerprints alike. There are no two snowflakes alike. But this is true of everything. It might look similar and it might even look like an exact duplicate but even twins are not just alike. Every blade of grass or the farthest stars are not alike. And this all reflects the Infinity of you. Now there is a class. You could go on about this for hours. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
And if you cut infinity in half you will have a mirror reflecting the infinity that always was

When spirit took the leap from formlessness to form, from nothing to something, from being to becoming, it emerged from emptiness as the creative impulse—the urge to become, the desire to exist. This creative impulse expresses itself at all levels of the human experience. Any human being can locate it at the lowest level of their being—at the gross physical level—as the sexual impulse, which is really the presence or movement of the big bang as a biological imperative. But at higher levels of being, humans are the only life forms we know of that are compelled to innovate and to create. We can see this especially in individuals who are pioneers in their fields, whether they are great philosophers, musicians, artists, politicians, or poets. Most individuals who are deeply talented are driven by a sense of urgency, an ecstatically urgent sense that “I must bring into life this potential that I see and experience in the depths of my own being. This must come through me.” If we get to know them, we will usually find that truly great human beings are driven by a passion that transcends their separate self-sense. And in the way I understand it, the highest expression of this creative impulse is the urge to evolve at the level of consciousness itself. ~ Andrew Cohen
As we awaken to our divinity we begin to walk in the steps of the gods ~ D.L.
