"Remember that as you anticipate the thunder, the lightning has already flashed. This is what Reality is." ~ Derek Lamar, metaphysicist
Become the lighting and listen within...

Music is a key which unlocks the memories we hold in place within our consciousness. The music which we hold dear helped comfort us in times of stress and anxiety and the turmoil of change, often moments in our youth when it seemed so much to deal with was coming at us at a hundred miles an hour. We would slip between the grooves of songs which made us feel safe and in control through the creative elements at play. You can visit those moments any time you play that music and discover a piece of yourself which you may have forgotten. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I am music, I am the vibration, I am the heartbeat of eternity
Now you can say, "I know that I AM! I know that my health, my harmony, my perfection, my happiness, and my abundance of every good are not located in my body or in my affairs, but only in my real Self -- myself awake -- the I-Am-Self. Here abide my unalterable, undefilable health and wholeness; my perfect spiritual senses and their distinct activities; my ever conscious awareness of Reality as all there is; and my complete experience of every good thing. ~ Lillian DeWaters (The "I AM THAT I AM", 1938)
To awake from my sleep... is to be released from this human dream

"Have you ever considered how dreadful it would be if our lives had no appointed end but went on forever? Can you imagine that as far as the eye can see into the future we should remain enmeshed in the desires and troubles of this life and that all the ensuing envy, hatred and malice, our own and other people's, should continue to pile up undiminished? If you have ever considered how intolerable the burden of our life would be without the understood certainty that it has an appointed end, you know that death comes to all, even the most fortunate, not as an enemy but as a deliverance." ~ Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) Reverence for Life
"The day of death is when two worlds meet with a kiss: this world going out, the future world coming in." ~ The Talmud
"Death is the twinkling of the eye as we move from one room into another surprised to find how similar the next room is, luring us, haunting us, seducing us with its temptations and causing us to wonder why we didn't look at the last room with such wonder and awe." ~ Derek Lamar
"Mortality is the realization that only truth can continue forever and eventually the nonsense must end and Reality begin" ~ Derek Lamar
When the end is in sight, it's time to begin again... ~ DL

Creativity is where one steps out beyond their ego and opens the door to their real self allowing something Higher to be expressed which is a part of who they truly are. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. "Who Am I?")
Moving out and back in again... ~ DL

This book gives insight for emotional healing and self-integration. The first step is to become aware. The second step is to take that information and act on it. But it is also important to understand the underlying causes of childhood emotional damage and let go of that behavior by understanding that they are not a deficient person but rather a whole and complete individual who misunderstood someone else’s behavior as being the truth about themselves. The believed what they thought they had to believe at the time for survival but they need not believe that false reality any longer. They can be free to be who they were always meant to be. ~ Ruth LeRoux, R.N. and Dr. Derek Lamar (BioRhythm Profiles: First Evidence Based Psychology, 2010)
Moving with the flow and letting illusion go... ~ DL

Love means an unselfish interest in the loved one for that one's own sake alone, for no ulterior motive. ~ Leon J. Saul, M.D. (Psychodynamics of Hostility)
Love is the indispensable essence. Everyone needs love - enormously and desperately. ~ Leon J. Saul, M.D. (Psychodynamics of Hostility)
And in love one always discovers the reality of their own Essence... ~ DL

Mysticism has been in the past and probably ever will be one of the great powers of the world and it is bad scholarship to pretend the contrary. You may argue against it but you should no more treat it with disrespect than a perfectly cultivated writ ~ William Butler Yeats (1865-1939 Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923)
Mysticism is the communication of experiencing Truth as close to its original abstract terms that it seems difficult for others to comprehend and in that manner, others tend to accept it as the experience of something which cannot be described or those who reject it as a disturbed mental delirium experienced by a weak minded soul. However, mysticism is the non-linear glimpse and translated into the linear for both the left brain and the right brain to deal with. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
And in experiencing the mystical, one touches the face of God...

Hitler never abandoned the cloak of legality; he recognized the enormous psychological value of having the law on his side. Instead, he turned the law inside out and made illegality legal. ~ Sen. Robert Byrd
And in law so too is there Principle which is eternal... where no illegitimate principle can work at all... it simply fades away...

You should face every situation in life from the standpoint that no situation has any power…. As you begin to look out at this world of appearances and remember all the appearances of evil that you can think about or have read about in the paper today, heard about on the air, or that you know about among your friends or family, try to remember the only reason these conditions persist is that persons believe they have power… Then you will see how revolutionary this idea is in your own consciousness. You cannot at the moment even imagine the depth of this unfoldment, nor can you imagine the effect of it in your life when you begin to accept within yourself that out here there is no power: All power is within me, and it does not have to be used, because there is nothing out here on which to use it or use it against. ~ Joel S. Goldsmith
In here... is ALL POWER... deep within... working to issue forth... ~ DL

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. ~ Pradeep Apte (I AM: The complete "I AM" quotes of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj by Pradeep Apte)
Always within, deep within, taste the sweetness of holiness, in knowing "I AM"...

A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows. ~ Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff

while i'm drained of this soul,
i'll reverse my path consciously.
power inside expression not of mind.
the energy resides inside as i get ripped aside.
as i reach my mind. i'll find a way to regain
what i've lost inside.
strength like the lion and peace within myself,
like a crushing force i will set my course.
still at times i'll life.
beat down by waves but the cycle of the storm remains.
the cycle sets my heart ablaze.
and i am not i. ~ Involution (Dive from Soul Control, 2009)
Cycles reflect the ongoingness of life, balance and order... ~ DL

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. ~ Helen Keller
People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant. ~ Helen Keller
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. ~ Helen Keller
But for the inner eye one would truly be blind... ~ DL

If one will come to realize the Truth about the Universe and the reflection that is of the Self, of Mind, of God, of Infinity, and come to understand that everything is One, then the changing of one's thoughts indeed will change one's world. The world is a reflection of our mind and what we believe and as our understanding changes, so does the reflection. As above, so below. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

Better to pray for someone else and learn humility than to pray for only yourself and discover your lonliness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
In prayer you discover you are nothing and everything...

The discoveries of scientific facts continue to amaze and enlighten researchers, students and curious onlooker with the incredible unfoldment that is the universe and life. When humanity begins to truly realize the significance that our thoughts are about thoughts rather than things, then the significance of Infinite Consciousness will completely illuminate the Mind that we share and the Light which is true Reality will shine in everything we perceive and think about. This is a continuing transforming process which is advancing more and more during this time in our development as we approach a threshold of Realization. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Infinite Consciousness is there even when we choose to ignore it...
Sunday ~ April 11 ~ 2010
Even Evolution requires an unfoldment or development of Order. Order is a concept which applies to a concept of Absolutes and is the attribute of a system of thought, of consciousness. The process of Evolution is one where life evolves and becomes more refined and more perfected. Thus we have the unfoldment of Perfection as the appearances of a reality which must exist in back of what we call the Universe otherwise life itself could not be working toward it. It could only be working toward an idea if it was itself an idea. If life itself is consciousness then Mind is what is in operation and the Evolving we perceive is the unfoldment of an order of reality which always has been. Life is not accidents and random occurences. If that were the case we would have no order in the Universe at all. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Infinite Variety is Perfect Order...

There is a thin line which separates us from who we think we are and who we really are. But too often we spend more time staring at that line than crossing it. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Step forward and enter the Cosmos...

The time available to discover yourself is always there but the time which avails itself to not knowing seems always standing in the way. Step over those moments and enter reality. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

The religious idea of God cannot do full duty for the metaphysical infinity. ~ Alan Watts
The verbal interpretation, on the other hand, i.e. the metaphysics of quantum physics, is on far less solid ground. In fact, in more than forty years physicists have not been able to provide a clear metaphysical model. ~ Erwin Schrodinger
Only a metaphysicist should provide a clear model of that which is an ontological quantum. After all there is more than one way to B.F. Skinner a Schrodinger's cat. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Even before Quantum Metaphysics ever was, I AM...

Change is needed everywhere, but no where with more meaning than within. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar

Metaphysics means nothing but an unusually obstinate effort to think clearly. ~ William James
I AM the Mind which questions and answers all things...
Monday ~ April 5 ~ 2010
It is all about change. Not all change is intended for good when it results from the human ego and the dualistic point of thinking, but Consciousness itself is unfolding for the good of all as all is ONE. The important thing to achieve positive results from life is to maintain a clear consciousness and focus on Truth and not on "appearances." All appearances are the interpretations of one's own subconscious therefore everything that happens can be used to raise our consciousness as we "Work" through it. Blessings to you all. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
I AM the Oneness that is All and All is One...
Sunday ~ April 4 ~ 2010
It is not enough to realize that you are connected with everything in the Universe. You must know that the Universe is a vast array of infinite thoughts which are within the One Mind which is your True Identity. You must begin to understand that who you think you are is an illusion of patchwork ideas of real and nonreal, truths and halftruths, dualisitic and connected, and all things mixed but without a cohesive understanding with a knowingness of the Oneness which is expressed as the One Mind knowing itself. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
I AM the Oneness that is...

Here With Me
I didn't hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
And I don't want to move a thing
It might change my memory
Oh I am what I am
I'll do what I want
But I can't hide
I won't go
I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me
I don't want to call my friends
They might wake me from this dream
And I can't leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that's been
~ D. Armstrong, P. Statham, P. Gabriel (Dido) theme song to Roswell
I AM WHAT I AM...

If one aspires to the realm of mysticism they must begin at the bottom: discovering themselves. This is an apprentice job where one must deal with what most people spend their life avoiding. Most people run from the confrontation of their inner demons but the mystic must deal with this realm like unconquered territory and face all that they find there as they relinquish their ego of the trappings of self-superiority which one finds attractive in the realm of the mystic. One might end up on the top of the mountain but not to be above others, but to expand their view of who they really are. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.
~ Samuel Adams
Let the freedom of mind, body and soul reign supreme...
