The learned man who only talks will never penetrate to the inner heart of man. ~ Saadi of Shiraz

not the illusion that deceives... ~ DL

Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be lied to. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery. ~ Octavia Butler
Your world is your mirror, reflect that which you desire within you... ~ DL
Monday ~ June 28 ~ 2010
Leave the path of death, and follow the path of life. Leave attachment to things and places, and instead enjoy the liberty of detachment. Do not cling to foolish friends, instead rejoice in solitude. Break free from possessions and from desires - from whatever may darken the mind. Attachment to things and to places is spiritual bondage, and leads to darkness. Surrender all attachments, and enjoy the pure light of spiritual freedom. Even in this mortal life you can enjoy eternal nirvana. ~ Dhammapada
Do not be possessed by the world and it will belong to you rather than you to it... ~ DL

Leave no stoned unturned... it will become the rock in your shoe... ~ DL
Saturday ~ June 26 ~ 2010
We have all had the experience of failing time after time in changing old habits. Then suddenly these old habits lose their hold on us. What was so attractive suddenly becomes unattractive. This is a sign that God has accepted our repentance. (Changing of Consciousness) At this point, my sheikh used to say that we are no longer responsible for those old sins. We have truly changed and we are now someone who is not even tempted to commit them. ~ Robert Frager (Heart, Self & Soul, The Sufi Psychology of Growth, Balance and Harmony)
Nothing stays the same but love which endures forever in back of all that is... ~ DL

I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God. ~ Sufi Proverb
All of life is infinite, all of life is One...
Tuesday ~ June 22 ~ 2010
The first rule of self-discovery is not only to observe oneself but then follow through and make change. This is because in order to make change within yourself, you must observe yourself. If you do not wish to make change then you do not wish to experience change. You can only make change within yourself in order to perceive change in your world... which reflects your self. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Self-control does not count if it means not making change... that is not control...
Monday ~ June 21 ~ 2010
First you must learn to control your self. The rest follows. Blessed is he who knows himself and commands himself, for the world is his and love and happiness and peace walk with him wherever he goes. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
Self-control is not doing what others want, but what you have learned to be right...

Saturday ~ June 19 ~ 2010
Life is a mirror reflecting to us as conditions the images of our thinking. Whatever one thinks tends to take form and become a party of his/her experience. ~ Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind)
I was looking back to see if you were looking back to see if I was looking back to see you...
Friday ~ June 18 ~ 2010
That subtle something which runs through all things and which we call "the Thing Itself," that energy without which nothing can be energized, that Life without which nothing can live, that Power without which nothing can move, and that Spirit without which nothing can be - IS GOD! ~ Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind)
It is up to us to learn what God is, and in doing so, we discover our Self...
Thursday ~ June 17 ~ 2010
Your life is the product of your awareness. Every choice follows from that, and so does every step of growth. ~ Deepak Chopra, M.D

Truth is Infinite and Single... Oneness and Infinity... over and over and over again...
Monday ~ June 14 ~ 2010
We must first clarify our own vision, then we shall become as lights, lighting the way for others. ~ Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind)
Remove the plank from your own eye, for it reflects your consciousness...
Sunday ~ June 13 ~ 2010
It is often said "There are no coincidences." But what does this mean? It comes from the common phrase of denial where someone reacts and says "It is JUST a coincidence." So the emphasis is on "just" and implies that simply because it is a coincidence does not mean... it has meaning. But there ARE coincidences. These are events which occur that reflect or parallel ideas or situations or occurences that may or may not appear to have meaning. The truth of the learning here is to understand that "There are no accidents." This is far more absolute in the metaphysical understanding of the lesson here. It is like when people say, "Even a broken clock is right twice a day." Or when someone says, "Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean somebody ISN'T following you." The important thing is to question what we say and not get into a habit of repeating things without thought being alive and alert. We are alive in an Infinite Consciousness and all things have meaning. Don't let it get in the way of learning or living but still, give it thought, especially when you need an answer to your inner questions. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Life gives us what we need because we are Mind waking up to what is...
Saturday ~ June 12 ~ 2010
I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." ~ Mother Teresa
Life gives us what we need, attract, reflect, fear and so on. ~ Derek
Friday ~ June 11 ~ 2010
There comes a time when one decides that they would rather discover who they are and learn about "truth" than simply being entertained. This will always be remembered as the most important time of your life. And those you meet on this ground will often have that feeling of having "known them before." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Think about it and read more... and send email. ~ Derek
Thursday ~ June 10 ~ 2010
Realize that your "mind" is an experiment in progress and despite the busy stretches of time consuming activities which fill your lives, you must face the fact that you have yet another destiny which will put everything in its place once you become committed to the process of raising your consciousness and discovering who you really are. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Think about it and observe the change all around you..
Wednesday ~ June 9 ~ 2010
I give supreme recognition to the God-Presence within me. I sincerely and honestly give thanks for all the blessings received. I give thanks for all the good in my life; I live in the feeling of grateful rejoicing. My thankful heart strikes the magic of the Divine response. Ever day of my life I express thanks for my knowledge of the laws of mind and the way of the Spirit. ~ Dr. Joseph Murphy (The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind Power, 1965)
Thinking and Being are the powers which manifest your reality... DL
Tuesday ~ June 8 ~ 2010
My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in the past experience, though proceeding out of it by an orderly sequence of growth. Therefore, since the Divine cannot change its inherent nature, it must operate in the same manner with me; consequently in my own special world, of which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before. ~ Judge T. Troward
The mind should never be left to believe it is anywhere near through...
Monday ~ June 7 ~ 2010
Try to remember that the picture you think, feel, and see is reflected into the Universal Mind, and by the natural law of reciprocal action must return to you in either spiritual or physical form. Knowledge of this law of reciprocal action between the individual and the Universal Mind opens to you free access to all you may wish to possess or to be. It must be steadfastly borne in mind that all this can be true only for the individual who recognizes that he derives his power to make an abiding mental picture from the All-Originating Universal Spirit of Life, and can be used constructively only so long as it is employed and retained in harmony with the nature of the Spirit which originated it. ~ Judge T. Troward (Your Invisible Power, 1951)
Think, Feel and Dream only for that which you wish for all that is... ~ DL

Belief in an "afterlife" requires believing in "death". Too often intelligent people sit around intellectualizing "reality" in such a way that their version of the supernatural comes out simplistic and childish. There is no heaven in the religious sense. And there is no hell in the religious sense. It is all MIND... all consciousness. The event which appears as "death" is our understanding of a transitionary process which conforms to our collective belief system. But it is all Mind Unfolding. It is all Infinite. And it is all "Our Mind" and nothing ever ends and everything has meaning and it is all about "waking up" ultimately. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
As we stretch our minds to understand we weaken our ability to be ignorant. ~ DL
Saturday ~ June 5 ~ 2010
I am interested in space research and UFO discoveries... but seriously... there is nothing which aliens can contribute to earthlings in the past, present or future which, within the Consciousness of who we really are, that we cannot discover within ourselves. And every miracle of technology seems to be attributed to "space brothers" and never to the Divine Nature of our "I AM" self. It seems too convenient of an easy answer for everything which comes up. In the end, even "aliens" respresent the state of consciousness we have arrived at on some level or it would mean nothing to us. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Always reach beyond your self and discover the stars are within you. ~ DL
Friday ~ June 4 ~ 2010
The time is not to be afraid but to be open to your own growth. Not to seek out creative avenues which are entertaining and fun but rather allow your inner creativity to draw out of you through reflection and observation areas of your life within which need to change. This can be fun and fulfilling but also so illuminating as one progresses. Your life will change... for the better. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Always reach beyond your self and discover who you really are ~ DL
Thursday ~ June 3 ~ 2010
The time will come when the average person really wants to know what it means to think and feel honestly, to not be ashamed, to desire to know more, to reach beyond him or herself, to be willing to admit ignorance, and to accept their own Divinity. Then we will know we have arrived on a planet which has changed and discovered its Destiny. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Always reach beyond the stars to know you have touched home... DL
Wednesday ~ June 2 ~ 2010
Allow your self to be pulled into the place where change awaits your journey. Do not pick a lifestyle or career which makes you feel better about yourself, let go of feeling bad about yourself. It stands before you to receive into your heart, your mind, and your soul. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Always rise to the occasion which is reflected in your dreams... DL
Tuesday ~ June 1 ~ 2010
There will be a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. ~ Louis L' Amour (Author)
God is the tangential point between zero and infinity. ~ Alfred Jarry (1873-1907 - French Playwright, Author)
And the first shall be last... the extremes of infinite variety is the one point understood as "ALL"... DL
