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

Saturday ~ July 31 ~ 2010
Anyone who is not shocked by the quantum theory has not understood it. ~ Niels Bohr
If you take a leap, and you find yourself already there, were you there before?
Friday ~ July 30 ~ 2010
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~ A Course In Miracles
Sometimes Love is not hiding from you as much as you from it... DL
Thursday ~ July 29 ~ 2010
Too many people believe that miracles, good fortune, destiny, are things which come to them if they are lucky, but that is all passive. You should not wait for things to come to you but rather actively seek out what you desire for yourself and your life. To be on a Path is not a bus stop but rather a staircase which takes you to whichever floor you desire to go. You must take yourself there and not expect it to happen without some effort. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
See and you shall find... but seek you must... DL
Wednesday ~ July 28 ~ 2010
You believe in the God who plays dice, and I in complete law and order in a world which objectively exists, and which I, in a wildly speculative way, am trying to capture. I firmly believe, but I hope that someone will discover a more realistic way, or rather a more tangible basis than it has been my lot to find. Even the great initial success of the Quantum Theory does not make me believe in the fundamental dice-game, although I am well aware that our younger colleagues interpret this as a consequence of senility. No doubt the day will come when we will see whose instinctive attitude was the correct one. (Albert Einstein to Max Born, On Quantum Theory, 1944)
Quantum Metaphysics at Q.M.I. reveals a Unified Field Theory which contains the Quantum variables... DL

I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here;
and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end. ~ Kahlil Gibran
Just because we think we have a human identity, does not mean it is true... DL
Monday ~ July 26 ~ 2010
[Psychoanalysis] is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist. ~ Karen Horney (Our Inner Conflicts, 1945)
Life alone is the slow process, personal work is the accelerated process... DL
Sunday ~ July 25 ~ 2010
An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. ~ Carl Jung
Love is the feeling of Oneness generated by Self knowing Self... wholeness... DL
Saturday ~ July 24 ~ 2010
We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses. ~ Carl Jung
We cannot let go of error until we accept that we have hold of it... DL
Friday ~ July 23 ~ 2010
I need to begin a new dialogue as it pertains to the Teaching which is represented here at Q.M.I. What is taught is a scientific approach to spiritual understanding. It is not a belief system which has some sort of "warm fuzzy" philosophy but rather the teaching reveals an understanding of the fundamental reality which is in back of time, space and change. This process of understanding is axiomatic and allows the "truth seeker" to do his or her own "Work" in order to better understand the "Order of the Universe" and also how to refile his or her own consciousness in ways which not only help clarify thinking but will begin to change the very world you find yourself living in. It is all about a process. IT IS the PROCESS which makes the difference. You won't be disappointed. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
The Dream we call life is often a misperception of the actual expression in operation... DL
Thursday ~ July 22 ~ 2010
Way back when... as I began to become more heavily involved in the Fourth Way school that I studied in, I had a conversation with a close friend and fellow student about my music. I told him I wanted to make it mysterious and to use that obscurity in the lyrics to attract other potential students to the Truth. He said that it wasn't necessary to try to be mysterious because it is very difficult for people to understand the Truth and if I make it as clear as possible, that alone will be as mysterious as I would ever need it to be. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Life is a dream and only gets better when we wake up ~ DL
Wednesday ~ July 21 ~ 2010
As far back as I can remember I have unconsciously referred to the experiences of a previous state of existence. ~ Henry David Thoreau
I know I am deathless…We have thus far exhausted trillions of winters and summers, / There are trillions ahead, and trillions ahead of them. ~ Walt Whitman
Doctrine of reincarnation is neither absurd nor useless. "It is not more surprising to be born twice than once. ~ Voltaire
I am certain that I have been here as I am now a thousand times before, and I hope to return a thousand times. ~ Goethe
I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums… All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me… Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born. ~ Jack London
There is no death. How can there be death if everything is part of the Godhead? The soul never dies and the body is never really alive. ~ Isaac Bashevis Singer, Nobel Laureate

Life is ongoing since Reality is infinite... it only makes sense. ~ DL
Tuesday ~ July 20 ~ 2010
Sometimes confronting ideas which seem unproductive or self-defeating or even self-destructive need to be faced in different ways so that one can truly understand what is going on in their own life. One of those is the concept of holding on to things. And we think that letting go is a good thing. But sometimes holding on to ideas which are sacred and with an internal understanding rooted in True Reality is a good thing. And sometimes letting go of something simply because you feel you don't have the strength to go on can be a wrong thing. What we must let go of are the erroneous ideas within ourselves as they relate to the Truth we have come to know and understand. Likewise we must hold fast to what we know is True despite the appearances to the contrary. There is no easy one step answer to anything important in life. It requires personal "Work", help from friends, and often a Teacher, a guide or a counselor to keep moving in the right direction and continuing to learn along the way. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Learn what it means to "refile" information within your consciousness... DL
Monday ~ July 19 ~ 2010
Everything in our Universe is energy, and what we are learning more and more scientifically in quantum physics is that the mind is the most powerful source of energy. Therefore our thoughts actually create our reality. A reality nonetheless made up of Maya (illusions). ~ Maya Muses
Reality is not illusion, the misperception of Reality is the illusion... DL
Sunday ~ July 18 ~ 2010
And in the end the words won't matter
Cuz in the end, nothing stays the same
And in the end dreams just scatter
And fall like rain
Cuz all we are, we are
And every day is a start
Of something beautiful, something real
~ Matt Nathanson & Marshall Altman (All We Are)
All we are we are, all I AM I AM... ~ DL
Saturday ~ July 17 ~ 2010
Love, work, and knowledge are the wellsprings of our lives, they should also govern it. ~ Wilhelm Reich
In properly organized groups no faith is required; what is required is simply a little trust and even that only for a little while, for the sooner a man begins to verify all he hears the better it is for him. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living. ~ Rudolf Steiner
So much to learn, even more to understanding, breath in the opportunity... ~ DL
Friday ~ July 16 ~ 2010
Divine prayer is the process where your mind works toward the mind of God until you and your sense of self (ego) relinquishes control and allows for the One Mind to actually be the only Mind there is. At this point you are "one with the Father" and your knowingness is "there is no Self but Thee." It is here where you know the Truth as it pertains to the Infinite Mind that is God and you allow that to be One with the only Self there is. It is perfection, it is whole, it is complete, it is the only reality there. Once this is achieved anything which "falls short of the glory of God" no longer exists, be it disease, pain, failure, loneliness, sadness... none of these thoughts or feelings are true, for TRUTH is all there is. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Discovering the meaning of Truth is the beginning of an endless journey... ~ DL
Thursday ~ July 15 ~ 2010
All of the fuss about "quantum mysticism" causes so many people to scurry. First certain religious groups scoffed because they thought too much credibility was being given to science and then to the occult. And then scientists thought the popularity of "Quantum Mysticism" was making fools out of scientists and that the average person wanted to know more about esoteric science than exoteric science. The Truth is that for so long some sort of Unified Field Theory was a modern day Holy Grail and that with its discovery and understanding all things problematic would disappear. The truth is we haven't even yet begun to tap the surface of what this really means in terms of the changes or metanoias which await humankind. Science does reflect our understanding of physical reality and in back of physical reality is the mathematics and the codes which express the fundamental reality of "All Things." This being the case, it is "All One" and you can only assume that somewhere in this conglomeration is the essence of spiritual reality and thus the key which unlocks the door to the mysteries of the Universe. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Discovering the meaning of what you perceive is the unraveling of the confusion... ~ DL

After knowing the American Indian chief, I met another chief, a Bedouin of the Arabian Desert. These two men, living thousands of miles apart, would naturally be considered complete aliens. Yet they share a common vision and move in almost precisely the same mental, spiritual and physical rhythms. Their lives are held together by the same golden thread. I wish it were possible for you, these two chiefs and me to sit cross-legged on the ground and share good talk with one another. It would be a profitable occasion, that I guarantee, but getting these two chiefs really to open up would require careful persuasion. Both talk as little as possible, finding it more to their advantage to keep wrapped in silence so that they can better hear the Voice of Existence. ~ J. Allen Boone (Kinship With All Life, 1954)
Communication is the process of discovering one's self... eternally... ~ DL
Tuesday ~ July 13 ~ 2010
The world is living in dangerous times. This must be understood. Pretending otherwise is like walking blindfolded along a cliff and fooling oneself into thinking you are simply wandering around your back yard. But also the tension and accellerating changes taking place also can coincide with the breaking down of false beliefs and the discovery of spiritual realities within oneself. There is a reason you look both ways when you cross the street. It is because we usually do not know if we are coming or going. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
There is but one direction and a thousand ways to get there...
Monday ~ July 12 ~ 2010
The Prophet said that Truth has declared: "I am not hidden in what is high or low, Nor in the earth nor skies nor throne. This is certainty, O beloved: I am hidden in the heart of the faithful. If you seek me, seek in these hearts. ~ Jalaludin Rumi
There is but One Mind, One Heart, One Soul, One Being...

There is only one obligation that you cannot ignore. You must attempt to survive. Even those who wish to die do so because they cannot take what is going on in their life and they choose to opt out; and that is their way to survive. Why is survival so important? It is because you have no choice. You are Eternal and that means you will always survive. No matter what you believe you are ongoing even if you choose to forget you have always existed life after life, incarnation after incarnation, mind forever knowing itself and existing, being, forever. As long as you are going to be around for Infinity, isn't it about time you discover yourself? ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Everyday spend at least a moment knowing that there is something spiritual about you... ~ DL

It is one thing to lead the people through a winter of hardship and another to lead them into it.
If you push a man into a deep pool and as he drowns you promise to save him what does this mean?
Even if you jump in will it not seem a calculated event simply designed to polish an already tarnished crown?
Even though Mind Unfolding works in mysterious ways it does not mean that all actions are heroic. Some who suffer arrogance displayed through compulsion and lost in their own vision based on political delusion will soon become washed away in a storm of their own choosing. ~ Richard Kula
To see through the fog is to go beyond one's human perception... ~ DL
Friday ~ July 9 ~ 2010
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Indian Proverb ~ Hafiz
To see the future is to realize a new beginning... ~ DL
Thursday ~ July 8 ~ 2010
Halls and theological colleges and learned lectures, circles and cloisters - What use are they when there is no knowledge and there is no eye that sees? ~ Hafiz
To see is to realize that which is so. Knowing the illusion is not the final answer... ~ DL

When the term "Quantum Metaphysics" is used, some detractors will give an opinion based on their interpretation of what it is referring to. But usually they have no idea what it means here, because I have found many different definitions which often do not agree with my own use of this term. Metaphysics itself means the science or study of that which is in back of what we understand as physical reality. My use of the word "Quantum" in conjunction with metaphysics is to bump up this science an octave, so to speak, in order for people to realize that something new or beyond past studies in metaphysics is going on here. "Quantum" does imply that the study of Quantum Mechanics or Quantum Physics or String Theory or some sort of new science or new level of current science is revealing a connection between "reality" as science measures or interprets it and "Reality" as sages or mystics or philosophers or truth seekers have understood its meaning in a spiritual or esoteric sense. It is in this understanding that I am presenting a Teaching which is in its own a "Unified Theory of Being" and principles and axioms which reveal an understanding with techniques and tools that allow the dedicated student a path in which they can find him or her self and move up the ladder of understanding and awareness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
To reach beyond your self is to discover the eternal self you are... ~ DL
Tuesday ~ July 6 ~ 2010
Go Forward With Courage
When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
So long as mists envelop you, be still;
be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
-- as it surely will.
Then act with courage.
~ Ponca Chief White Eagle (1800's to 1914)
To be at one with Self is to discovere the Vision... ~ DL
Monday ~ July 5 ~ 2010
You must set aside a special time each day for the work. Not all the time, the Work is a serious thing. You cannot work interiorly all day. You must make a special time and increase it little by little. To this work you give a half hour of the 24 hours. During this half hour forget all the rest, put all the rest aside. It's a little thing. You sacrifice to this time all your occupations, all the work of your exterior functions. Sacrifice everything for your interior work and afterward you can put it aside for the things of ordinary life. You cannot do this work all day. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
To even consider doing "Work" is the beginning of the process... ~ DL
Sunday ~ July 4 ~ 2010
When you begin to feel like life is slipping away and the excitement of things is fading, it is time to reevaluate who you are and what your needs are as it relates to inner change and self-discovery. The times are causing many people now to lead a simpler life and perhaps for reasons that had not occured to them before. It is a time to discover the Reality behind this stage play we call reality. Be more in charge of who you and and entertain the idea that you can be liberated through the changing of your consciousness. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Stop the constant reactions and learn how to respond... ~ DL
Saturday ~ July 3 ~ 2010

Friday ~ July 2 ~ 2010
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. ~ George Gurdjieff
(The struggle is always with and within our self, for in reality, there is no one else. ~ Derek Lamar)
Without struggle, no progress and no result. Every breaking of habit produces a change in the machine. ~ George Gurdjieff

(Realize that within you resides the perfect Self waiting to be realized. Let it be drawn forth. ~ Derek Lamar)
Step forward and receive the Teaching of a lifetime... of several lifetimes... ~ DL
Thursday ~ July 1 ~ 2010
You have no idea how unimportant is all that the teacher says or does not say on the surface, and how important what he himself is as teacher. ~ Rudolf Steiner
What a teacher has learned is the iceberg tip of that which had to be unlearned... ~ DL
