Q.M.I. Presents Derek Lamar's
Quote of the Day... February 2010

Sunday ~ February 28 ~ 2010
A child, from the time he can think, should think about all he sees, should suffer for all who cannot live with honesty, should work so that all men can be honest, and should be honest himself.
~ Jose Marti
There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
~Aldous Huxley
If you could get rid of yourself just once, the secret of secrets would open to you. The face of the unknown, hidden beyond the universe would appear on the mirror of your perception. ~ Rumi

Look within, look within, look within again...
Saturday ~ February 27 ~ 2010
You cannot give yourself completely if you do not accept yourself completely. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I., Director)
I AM all that is True and that which I believe, which is false, dims the light of that which I seek to discover within myself...
Friday ~ February 26 ~ 2010
To return to a memory and relive it with all of its negativity and pain, it is important to remember that in Reality, those thoughts and feelings are in themselves illusion based on your interpretation of them. You made the best and only possible choices of thinking and forming conclusions at that time, but the outcome does not need to last forever. You do not need to be controlled by these memories for eternity. Relive those moments and step outside of the moment and realize that what you are is consciousness which is not of the moment you experienced and that in Reality you are whole, complete and perfect. The Truth about you is not determined by the conclusions that you formed in those vulnerable moments but rather your reality is written in eternity as the "I AM SELF" which is divine and forever expressing the unfoldment of MIND which is your True Self. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I., Director)
I AM all that is True and that I AM is Truth...
Thursday ~ February 25 ~ 2010
Ultimately the concept of the "I AM" comes down to the realization of the self as Beingness and Consciousness which is at ONE with Reality and separate from the ego sense of self which is forever fighting for its own "place" in the fast lane of recognition. In this sense the understanding of humility is not to fake a passive demeanor but rather merely retain that consciousness of knowing that you are the "I AM" which is also reflected in all that you perceive because in Reality there is only ONE MIND, ONE SELF, ONE BEING. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I., Director)
I AM all that is True and that which is not true is not so...
Wednesday ~ February 24 ~ 2010
As above, so below
Truth is all there is I know
I am Truth and I AM all
with Oneness bringing down all walls
As I unfold all that I am I see it all fulfilled
I speak to the issues there at hand
and watch them change at will.
Wholeness removes karmic disease
And abundance replaces debt.
I release the Truth about me now
And Truth is what I get.
Love fills the vacuum of lonliness
and confidence replaces doubt
fear is disolved by surety
within is now without
Pain is switched with harmony
and heartbreak replaced by love
I AM THAT I AM, I will, I can
below now equals above.
~ Dr. Derek Lamar (I AM Connection, from the I AM PRAYER, 2002)
I AM above...I AM below... for I AM THAT I AM...
Tuesday ~ February 23 ~ 2010
As in the axiom: “As above, so below,” we must recognize that the above and the below is One and thus the recognition of this Truth is the knowingness that there is only heaven and earth is but our own version of reality in a restricted and distorted manner. But this is not the whole Truth. We are only perceiving pieces of the whole when we function humanly on the earth plane. But as we pray we must open up to the Truth that the Allness of Reality supersedes this perception. Our world is a dream which functions in a fog that represents our awareness which is rooted in duality. Through a recognition of Oneness and an acceptance of our inheritance as the I AM we wake up out of this dream and perceive Reality as it is. In this manner we can become open to the fullness of the Truth that we are and accept our Divinity. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (I AM Connection, 2002)
I AM above...I AM below... for I AM ALL there is...

All things that ever were, that are, or that will be, having; their record upon the astral light, or tablet of the unseen universe, the initiated adept, by using the vision of his own spirit, can know all that has been known or can be known. ~ Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
There is no miracle. Everything that happens is the result of law -- eternal, immutable, ever active. ~ Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Man is undeniably endowed with a double set of senses; with natural or physical senses (these to be safely left to physiology to deal with); and with sub-natural or spiritual senses (belonging entirely to the province of psychological science). ~ Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Therefore, we say, man, in addition to the physical, has also a spiritual brain. ~ Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
When desire is for the purely abstract - when it has lost all traces or tinge of "self" - then it has become pure. ~ Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
All can be known~Miracles are change based on Mind~MIND is Reality~Spiritual Consciousness is the Highest Realization~Abstract is to see behind the invisible...
(Happy Birthday to my mother: JoAnne)
Sunday ~ February 21 ~ 2010
The unlimited power of the Divine Mind will work in you when you have overcome this mortal or relative thinking and given yourself over to the absolute. This is not a dificult thing to do, but it is a thing which requires diligent watching. Idle words or thots are little seeds which will develop into weeds that must be garnered or rooted up sooner or later.Accummulated wrong thinking sometimes seems like a mountain before us as we attempt to say, "I am abundantly supplied with everything I need," but just the same a large mountain can finally be moved away with a shovel if there is no other way of doing it. The cleansing process, however, is not as slow as our illustration, for once we have taken our stand and realize that we are right now in possession of infinite substance, recognizing that there is nothing but an erroneous belief to handle, we will soon see great masses of wrong thinking give away and float down stream, and the clear calm waters of Truth being revealed to us. ~ Walter C. Lanyon (Prosperity)
It isn't so much what you believe but what you know...
Saturday ~ February 20 ~ 2010
Since the Truth ever affirms that Creation is perfect and "very good," and that Spirit and its Creation are All-in-all, how then does the evil suggestion regarding Creation ever present itself? The assumption of evil is not in the mind of the Creator, nor in His Creation but it is a false belief of false mind. No one believes that there is evil in God, Spirit, but he does believe that he can see imperfection and discord in Creation. The mind assumes a fact which does not exist anywhere but in its own false conception of things. ~ Lillian DeWaters (The Time Is At Hand, 1930)
It is wonderful, it really is...
Friday ~ February 19 ~ 2010
Reaching for the stars is our attempt to grasp the divinity that already belongs to us. We are the light which is the Infinity of Mind and we are looking back at ourselves. As we journey through our life we are unfolding our own script which is wrestling with what we do not yet know and relishing what we have discovered. It sometimes feels divided and then there are those moments of Oneness... ah yes... there are those. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Spiraling throughout Infinity as my mind becomes my Being...
Thursday ~ February 18 ~ 2010
The only thing necessary for "Rogue mind" to triumph is for seekers of Truth to do nothing to change their own consciousness. It should be understood that to obtain the tools and knowledge of consciousness comes with a responsibility to continue by dealing with one's inner self. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Similar to obtaining wealth and spending it freely... so that others might profit...
Wednesday ~ February 17 ~ 2010
I have been doing a lot of thinking, about ONENESS. When I say that it is a process, I mean that IT IS FINISHED in the realm of our higher consciousness, but, we are still walking out of this illusion that we have been exisiting in and have begun the process of BEING that Oneness. Some are further along than others; some don't even believe it; some don't even know anything about it, but it is being done. ~ Linda Keith (Manifesting Now, 2010)
Even a tiny glimpse of this Kingdom is quickening and renewing, uplifting and inspiring. ~ Lillian DeWaters (The Finished Kingdom, 1924)
Reality is a Divine Calculator with all answers within ~ D.L.
Tuesday ~ February 16 ~ 2010
In seeing and accepting I AM THAT I AM, and besides me there is none else, one is unable to point out anything in this I-Am-All which needs healing, or see any place where Truth needs to be applied.  The statement is so final, so all-inclusive, so absolute, as to preclude all though or desire to heal any person or thing; it leaves no question unanswered.  Yea, the above statement of Reality is ever a challenge to us concerning all matters of concern within or about us.  “And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good.”  (Genesis 1:31)… “All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.”  (John 1:3) Can you find any room for imperfection in Perfection, or for I am not in I Am, or for there is for there is something else in There is none besides me? Verily Truth cannot be practiced from the standpoint of applying it as a means to an end: for the end is the same as the beginning, the object the same as the subject, the effect the same as the cause.  They are one.  As one learns the meaning of I am the way, he will have the only practice of Truth there is or ever can be.  Could the true fact that the earth is round be practiced upon a flat earth?  Think it over, and find out why not.  “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.”  The I Am is the Way, which can be practiced only from the standpoint – I Am. ~ Lillian DeWaters
Realizing the "I AM" is the opposite of accepting the "I am not"...~ D.L.
Monday ~ February 15 ~ 2010
No way to self-realization is short or long, but some people are more in earnest and some are less. I can tell you about myself. I was a simple man, but I trusted my Guru. What he told me to do, I did. He told me to concentrate on ‘I am’ – I did. He told me that I am beyond all perceivables and conceivables – I believed. I gave my heart and soul, my entire attention and the whole of my spare time (I had to work to keep my family alive). As a result of faith
and earnest application, I realized my self (‘swarupa’) within three years. You may choose any way that suits you; your earnestness will determine the rate of progress. Establish yourself firmly in the awareness of ‘I am’. This is the beginning and also the end of all endeavour. ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I AM: The complete "I AM" quotes of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj by Pradeep Apte)
Discovering the "I AM" is to step into the "Divine" of who you really are.~ D.L.
Sunday ~ February 14 ~ 2010
Love in metaphysical terms is to recognize that Love symbolizes Oneness. This Oneness is the reality of what one seeks to discover in their life, in their body, in their thinking, in their feeling and in their relationships. To truly love someone is to discover the Divinity within them and by doing so you will experience Oneness with that person. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Discovering the Divinity of someone is to realize their "I AM" which is seeing one's own True Self... ~ D.L.
Saturday ~ February 13 ~ 2010
In the silence, in the ""secret place" where the observation of mortal mind is dimmed, is the place to do your work. "The father within me, he doeth the work." In the "secret place" we can declare the allness of God, and that his perfect idea man is being manifested in its- own natural way, which is always beautiful and grand. Then when it is ready for presentation to the world, it will be so evident that it will call itself from the house tops. The perfume of its blossoms will not need attention called to them. They by their glory and attainment will attract the notice which is necessary and shall be for an example of faith. "In the twinkling of an eye all shall be changed." ~ Walter C. Lanyon (Leaves Of The Tree, 1925)
The "I AM" is found in the secret place where the human mind is silent... ~ D.L.
Friday ~ February 12 ~ 2010
As you are reading these lines I, the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence, am awaiting recognition. You - yes, you, the poor little discounted one, the one who stood farthest from the pulpit, and received scarce a sign of recognition from the consecrated souls - I have come to you, and I AM the same One who has been standing at the door of your consciousness knocking for ages. "Behold I [the Spirit] stand at the door [of your consciousness] and knock. If any [no distinction is made] man will open up to ME, I will come in and sup with him and he with ME." No matter who you are, neither the grade or the length of your teaching, nor the fears of condemnation. You who read this page, do you hear? Do you see? I AM that which will tear the veil of belief, and you shall see, not a little demonstration of supply that will last you for a week, but the fields white with substance, and you shall know that deep in the secret place of your being is the Key to the Universe. The catering to persons will drop away. You will ask no man permission to perform the work I sent you to perform. "Those that are for there are more than those that are against thee," for there is but One, the Only, the All. ~ Walter C. Lanyon (It Is Wonderful, 1921)
The "I AM" is the Truth which is All there is within you to realize... ~ D.L.
Thursday ~ February 11 ~ 2010
I AM everything and everywhere; call upon ME and see if I will not open the windows of Divine substance. I AM THAT I AM - that particular I AM Consciousness which should come to this condition or situation to make its nothingness appear - to cause it to release the power that lies hidden there, and which has caused you to fear. I AM ALL IN ALL - I AM everywhere. No matter wither you go, into what locality, I AM there - I have gone before you, because I AM already there and always have been there. I have already caused myself to be so impressed upon you that you find everything already prepared before you arrive. You find everything answered before you ask. You find everything supplied before you need. It is well with you - do you hear? - irrespective of person, place, or thing. It is well with you, irrespective of teachings of any nature what-soever. I AM - I AM - I AM. ~ Walter C. Lanyon (It Is Wonderful, 1921)
The "I AM" will guide you to that which is wonderful... ~ D.L.
Wednesday ~ February 10 ~ 2010
The search for God is always fraught with irony. We begin the search as we think about it and our pondering continues within our mind. At some point we create the image of a creator in our imagination which exists outside of us and lording over us all. We created this God within our mind and we let the puzzle out of the box. It is time we return the journey back to the realm from whence it came: our mind where God always resided from the beginning. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The "I AM" will guide you to the "I AM THAT I AM" ~ D.L.
Tuesday ~ February 9 ~ 2010
Everyone's life is a "mystical journey" when one can see the forces of the unseen moving about and how the Higher Cosmic Forces, i.e., Higher Mind (or the "I AM" Self) are leading one to discover Reality along with the psychological aspects of the subconscious mind and how that is directing one to follow a certain pattern which also will lead one to discovering themselves. Often seen as different lanes on the same highway, still, this process parallels the journey and can become a holographic map of sorts revealing a story which is interesting, exciting and oftentimes incredible. Enjoy the journey. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The "I AM" will guide you to your "Self" ~ D.L.
Monday ~ February 8 ~ 2010
Humility is so misunderstood. It is always a good thing NOT to be arrogant or narcissistic and to also think of others. But true humility in a spiritual sense is to know who you really are and that your Divine Self, that which is ONE WITH GOD also includes everyone who is separate from you. In this way you can never think of yourself as greater than anyone else for they ARE you, they ARE who you are as a mirror to your projections of your human beliefs as well as the infinite variety of expression of the Higher Self which is your True Identity. Keep all things in perspective and treat it all as if it is a dream which dreamed by God and you are playing all of the roles in the dream. Because in fact this is the Truth. Peace of Knowing be with you. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The "I AM" breathes and we all inhale the same Spirit ~ D.L.
Sunday ~ February 7 ~ 2010
A good exercise is to do deep breathing in and out of the heart as though it had nostrils, right in and out of the heart. You can use that breath to ferret out those places in you where there is a deep sadness or some deep attachments which are slowing your progress; let them come forth and let them go, give them up to Kali or Christ or Guru or God. Keep bringing them out, the sadnesses deep within your heart that have closed you off, keep bringing them forward, keep going in and in until you're all the way back to your spine. Keep digging and digging with the breath, breathing it all out again. ~ Ram Dass (Grist For The Mill with Stephen Levine, 1977)
Breathing is an in and out movement much like the in and out of Life, the Out and Back of the Oneness of Reality giving and receiving itself. Also, in concentrating on the breathing many people can finally relax where others in meditation become stir crazy. In the quietness of the rhythm of the breathing one can step outside of the self and allow either the blocks to shake loose or for something Higher to slip out reverberating with the shaking of one's foundations and emerging with a change in Consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
The "I AM" breathes, the rocks breathe, the oceans breathe, the winds are the breath of the earth, the moon breathes as it waxes and wanes... ~ D.L.
Saturday ~ February 6 ~ 2010
The same life courses in my veins is coursing in yours. The same intelligence that is manifest in me is manifest in you. The same soul that animates my being animates your being. There is only one I. I is God, and that God constitutes my being. It is my life and your life because there is only one life. God is my mind and your mind, because there is only one mind. God is my soul and your soul. We have the same soul. We have the same soul, the same life, the same spirit, and the same being. Therefore, the good you do to another, you are doing unto God, who is your divine selfhood. The good you do to another, you do to yourself. ~ Joel S. Goldsmith (Invisible Supply: Finding The Gifts of the Spirit Within, 1983)
The Higher Self "I" is the "I AM" which reveals the God within... ~ D.L.
Friday ~ February 5 ~ 2010
Remember a full purse and happiness comes as a result of a constructive use of thought, time and energy rightly directed and if you will keep in mind that what you do to the other fellow will eventually return to you, I am sure the results will be all that you desire, and best of all, there won't be any lingering doubts in your mind as to your right to your harvest. ~ Albert Hilands, Ms.D., M.S.B. (You, A Self-Imprisoned Master: A Source of Genuine Inspiration, 1951)
All is thought and what we do with it as it relates to Reality... ~ D.L.
Thursday ~ February 4 ~ 2010
If I am what I have and if I lose what I have who then am I? ~ Erich Fromm
Then I remain the one searching for myself. If what I have reminds me of who or what I want to be, then it forever remains the reflection of that where I have not yet arrived. Does the collecting of these reminders act as bookmarks for my work to discover myself or do they get between me who already exists and that which I have not yet discovered? ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive! ~ Sir Walter Scott
Mirrors are out and back, back and forth, as above so below...
Always echoes of that we do not know... or do not show...
Wednesday ~ February 3 ~ 2010
Still don't know what I was lookin for and my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets; every time I thought Iíd got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet.
So I turned myself to face me but I've never caught a glimpse of how the others must see the faker...
I'm much too fast to take that test
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes...Turn and face the strange...
Ch-ch-changes... Don't want to be a richer one...
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes... Turn and face the strange...
Ch-ch-changes... Just gonna have to be a different one...
Time may change me, but I can't trace time. ~ David Bowie (Changes from Hunky Dory)
A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me... ~ D.B.
Tuesday ~ February 2 ~ 2010
Perhaps the most pervasive unproven scientific belief is that our minds are the crowning outgrowth of physical matter, that material came first, and that mind evolved out of it. The dramatic successes of physical sciences, and the resulting technology, can easily mislead us to this conclusion. However, physical sciences are by definition aimed at the physical world, and to generalize their views beyond physical reality is scientifically not justified.
This paper attempts to interpret the findings of quantum physics and other relevant scientific information. The logical conclusion is that mind is the basis of our reality, and matter evolves from it, not the other way around. A holistic logic system is postulated that unifies seemingly disparate concepts of physical science, psychology, philosophy, and religion. ~ Joachim E. Wolf (A Revolution In Common Sense or Quantum Metaphysics, 1991)
Physical matter is an expression of the substance I AM as Mind...
Monday ~ February 1 ~ 2010
Listen to your heart. If your heart says yes, then you have arrived. If your heart says no, keep looking. If your heart says maybe, then you might make up your mind by spending more time there. No one is asking you to be a martyr by living in an obviously risky place. Choosing a place of power brings karmic reverberations on the physical plane. ~ Stevern Foster with Meredith Little ( The Book of the Vision Quest: Personal Transformation In The Wilderness, 1980)
And I looked into the sky and I saw myself looking at the sky...
