The Truth is far more powerful than any weapon of mass destruction. ~ Mohandas Gandhi)
In the Reality of the "I AM" nothing can be destroyed. Everything is Mind and ultimately it must be understood that to make any real change in the world, in the universe, in your life, it is in the changing of your mind where all of this will happen. Do not worry about what is outside of you, be interested in the discovery of what is inside you. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

At the cellular level I AM the entire chain of life. I AM the key rung of the DNA ladder, center of the evolutionary process, the current guardian of the seed, the now-eye of the 2-billion-year-old uncoiling serpent. I AM God of Life. I'm you. ~ Dr. Timothy Leary
The desire to know Truth can only come out of the strength within because those who are weak do not wish to know Truth. This is because it requires courage to face oneself. There is nothing to fear except the unknown and that dark hall of mirrors is a walk few choose to go down. Be strong, pursue the path of discovering Truth. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I AM Light... I AM Mind... I AM Infinity... I AM All... ~ I AM
Monday ~ March 22 ~ 2010

A string of excited, fugitive, miscellaneous pleasures is not happiness; happiness resides in imaginative reflection and judgment, when the picture of one's life, or of human life, as it truly has been or is, satisfies the will, and is gladly accepted. ~ George Santayana (1863-1952)
What is happiness? Is it what makes your ego happy, or your Beingness?
Saturday ~ March 20 ~ 2010
In the examination of Quantum Science, we must always look at hidden variables, we must not "JUMP" to conclusions in this process without proving our conclusions through the use of axioms. You can allow for these jumps by them proving them. They needn't be ignored but blindly accepting them can be a mistake in judgment that is a result of self-deception. Self-deception always pops up to stop or hinder change." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
What is science and what is mind... and does it matter?
Friday ~ March 19 ~ 2010
When I awoke it was chilly. I realized I was huddled up next to a rock somewhere out in the open desert. I seemed to be alright but I couldn't remember how I got there. For a time I realized I did not know my name, who I was or where I lived. Gradually all of these lost memories returned except for why I was there in the desert experiencing a rendevous with the morning sun. I looked toward the East and saw a man walking in my direction and there seemed to be a glow around him. I wasn't afraid. After all, I had just survived the night in the open desert. White Sands is what they call it and it does have a spiritual quality about it. Finally the man stood before me and asked me if I now was ready to learn the spiritual things we had talked about the night before. Obviously this left me stunned and full of questions. I said: "Where did you come from?" He smiled and said, "Shouldn't one of your questions be 'Where did I come from?'" ~ James Atherton (Among Us, 1950)
Who am I? What am I? Where am I?
Thursday ~ March 18 ~ 2010
There was a man lurking in the doorway when suddenly a flash of light made it impossible to see anything else in the room. The burst of light was soon gone even though it seemed to all be happening in slow motion and then the room was left in a glowing state like embers in a fire. As the hue of the glow went from white to yellow and from yellow to orange and then from orange to red it seemed to get darker and darker until the entire room became its own shadow and no where could the light be found. I couldn't walk across the room it was so dark. The man lurking in the doorway became a forgotten memory until I realized I was alone. Then I wondered what became of him. I couldn't hear a sound, not even the breathing of someone else so I had to assume that he had vanished. It would haunt me for some time until I would meet face to face with this man again. I knew there had been rumors about aliens and unexplained crashes in the desert and bright flashes of light shooting across the sky but in the Southwest when there is little to do the night can play tricks on you. I would discover, however, that the mystery was not only inside of me, but the answers as well. ~ James Atherton (Among Us, 1950)
It is the light which is true, the shadow is the illusion...
Wednesday ~ March 17 ~ 2010
The creative power to form your own experience is within you now, as it has been since the time of your birth and before. ~ Jane Roberts (Seth Speaks)
The soul is not a finished product, but a process of becoming. ~ Jane Roberts (Seth Speaks)
As many light snacks would actually be much better than three large meals a day, so short naps rather than such an extended period would also be more effective. ~ Jane Roberts (Seth Speaks)
Learning in small amounts over time will insure enlightenment more than one large dose of revelation hitting you in the face...
Tuesday ~ March 16 ~ 2010
My environment, now, is not the one in which you will find yourself immediately after death. I cannot help speaking humorously, but you must die many times before you enter this particular place of existence. Birth is much more of a shock than death. Sometimes when you die you do not realise it, but birth almost always implies a shock and sudden recognition. So there is no need to fear death. And I, who have died more times than I care to tell. ~ Jane Roberts (Seth Speaks)
No one here gets out alive ~ Jim Morrison (The Doors)
Monday ~ March 15 ~ 2010
When you say I AM, you are individualizing the Principle of Life. You are declaring your indissoluble union with God. You are talking about that part of your being which is not subject to death. It is the Principle of Identity that was never born, never gets sick, and never dies. ~ Robert A. Russell (Dry Those Tears, 1951)
I AM without illness, without death and Eternity is the air I AM breathing...
Sunday ~ March 14 ~ 2010
“I AM the resurrection and the life.” I AM --- present tense. I AM right now in the midst of a life for which there is no death. ~ Robert A. Russell (Dry Those Tears, 1951)
I AM without illness, without death and Eternity is the air I AM breathing...

To Finally See

What's my future?
What does it mean?
Am I God... or a human being?
So everything... is the way that I think?
Or is it a dream... or a big mistake?
What is real and what is yet to be?
Am I in prison...
waiting to be set free?
Am I rising or falling down?
Is life ongoing...
or just going around?
Is it unfolding... or tangled in knots?
What do I remember?
Have I forgot?
As I am standing... knowing the Truth...
I know it is then, I can see it through.
And when I am confused
It is then, I must see
That there is One Mind...
Only one me.

~ Derek Lamar

It is then I finally see...
Friday ~ March 12 ~ 2010
I am at home in the marvelous. Absolutely at home. The unknown, the mysterious, the exotic, the strange, the never-lived-before, the difficult. ~ Anais Nin
My life seemed normal as I grew up except for the ideas and stories which caught my own personal interest. It was always the esoteric and the unusual as well as the mystical. In retrospect I have been able to discover a journey of sorts which not only matched a beginning of connections of my life's journey but one's which seem universal in their appearance and I have come to realize that they were drawn into my life as a result of another part of me that I have sought to discover more and more. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I discover shadows and pursue the light behind them...
Thursday ~ March 11 ~ 2010
We are all sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life. ~ Tennessee Williams
If you are lonely when you are alone, you are in bad company. ~ Jean-Paul Sartre
You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
When the depth of your loneliness equals that of the caring you feel you were deprived of as a child, you will have found the key to unlock the door where the secrets have been hidden. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I feel therefore I am lonely...

...Elsa Barker relates the words of an anonymous spirit in Letters from a Living Dead Man, which state: “Sometimes when praying for I prayed much, there would come to me the sudden question, ‘To what are you praying?’ And I would answer aloud, ‘To God, to God!’ But though I prayed to Him everyday for years, only occasionally did I get a flash of that true consciousness of God. Finally one day when I was alone in the woods, there came the great revelation. It came not in any form of words, but rather in a wordless and formless wonder, too vast for the limitation of thought. …Then gradually… I could put into the form of words the realization which had been too much for my mortality to bear, and the words I used to myself were, ‘All that is, is God.’ It seemed very simple, yet it was far from simple. ‘All that is, is God.’ That must include me and my fellow beings… From that moment life assumed a new meaning for me. I could not see a human face without remembering the revelation- that the human being I saw was a part of God. …The realization nearly took my breath away. Life became unbelievably beautiful. …[For] I found that as more and more I sought God in [others], more and more God responded to me through them. And life became still more wonderful. ~ Jack Haas (relating writings from Letters From A Living Dead Man by Elsa Barker in his book The Way of Wonder, 2002)
I think therefore I AM and all there is, is God...
Tuesday ~ March 9 ~ 2010
The acceptance that our ‘I AM’ is God’s ‘I AM’ is the recognition relentlessly brought forth in the ‘I AM Teachings’ of St. Germain and other ‘ascended’ masters, published by the St. Germain press. They contend that it is only in the realization that our self is God’s Self that we truly are God. ~ Jack Haas (The Way of Wonder, 2002
I think therefore I AM and Truth is all there is therefore I AM Truth...
Monday ~ March 8 ~ 2010
I AM PROSPERITY! Millions slave for this idea; a few are supported by it. Do you see the difference? The laborer works for this idea; the capitalist lets it work for him. One supports it; the other is supported by it. Is there any difference then between the laborer and the capitalist? Only the difference in relationship. One is the servant of an idea, and the other is served by it. ~ Robert A. Russell (You, Too, Can Be Prosperous, 1950)
I AM becomes the realization of Ultimate Truth or unfortunate confusion...
Sunday ~ March 7 ~ 2010
YOU --- Mind --- and your thoughts are one. And these thoughts are within YOU. YOU --- Mind --- create perfect concepts. And YOU manifest them. That is, you perceive the presence of the concepts and their continuous function. And the concept is one with the manifestation. They re not separated. Both are within YOU. Inside of your sphere of awareness. ~ Carl O. Johnson (I AM GOD and there is none else, 1939)
Let there be Light and Wisdom is expressed Within...
Saturday ~ March 6 ~ 2010
Be still and know, --I AM--God. Know that I AM, and that you are not at all--as a separate being. I AM not your body, mind or soul,--I AM Spirit. I AM that which animates you, which lives you, which is your intelligence, which is your power to be and to do all that you are and do. I AM you Real self--your Only self--I, the God of you. You are only a portion of My Consciousness, dwelling within a focalized center of My Mind, which you call your self. The proof is, you are nothing, know nothing, can do nothing, only as I inspire and empower you to know and do it. ~ Joseph Benner (The Way To The Kingdom, 1932)
The only Self there is I AM...
Friday ~ March 5 ~ 2010
That which you cannot accept about yourself becomes active rejection. We get what we put out. And what do we receive if what we put out as non-acceptance. We experience rejection. And if we believe this and cannot let it go it is because we insist on believing it and thus we insist on being rejected subconsciously even as we outwardly and consciously attempt to be accepted. Love becomes a germ in the body of mankind as the disease of self-hatred teams up with our weakness and tortures us with the nightmare of lonliness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
To feel pain is to not feel the pleasure which is acceptance... Oneness is total acceptance and duality is the polarity of self rejection...
Thursday ~ March 4 ~ 2010
Philosophy of mind is at a watershed. Recent debates are making it increasingly clear that answers to the deepest questions must be sought, not in the laboratories of neuroscientists, but in pursuit of old fashioned metaphysics. These questions are as baffling to the neuroscientists as they are to the philosophers. ~ John Heil (Metaphysics of Mind)
To think is to perceive and to perceive is to realize consciousness...
Wednesday ~ March 3 ~ 2010
Self Discovery is a processing of letting go of the false information we believe. It is not a process of becoming "better" or becoming "more spiritual" or even becoming "more real." The reality is that our True Self is in back of what we perceive even though it remains unknown to us. When we let go of the false information we create a vacuum which is filled with the True Information which is already there but which had not been "seen" before. In back of time, space and change is a fundamental reality and this reality is the Truth of who we are. This Reality is the SELF which is the same yesterday, today and forever. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Be still and know that what "I AM" always was and always will be... ~ DL
Tuesday ~ March 2 ~ 2010
On the journey to discover oneself, time and time again, over and over again, often multitudes of times during a single day, one must face him or herself in the realization of how often we fall asleep to knowing who we really are. There are levels to this of course. For even a single moment of knowing for a micro-second who one is has often been referred to throughout human history as illumination or a moment of enlightenment. It doesn't always stay anymore than the sun hitting a crystal just right as it shines through a kitchen window as it hits its mark and just as quickly it is gone again. But the more "work" one does the longer these periods may be held onto as time can seem to stand still. Within each one of these moments can be an Eternity of revelation. But to struggle again back up the hill is a realization that one must commit to if they are sincere in discovering Truth. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Be still and know that the "I AM" is always that whose eyes we must peer through and know it is the only True Identity we can ever claim... ~ DL
Monday ~ March 1 ~ 2010
May you live in interesting times. ~ Chinese curse
May you find what you are looking for. ~ Part 2 of Chinese curse.
May you never be forced to deal with anything uncomfortble. ~ a psychological curse

Look within, look beyond, look again, look again...
