When you're depressed, there's no calendar. There are no dates, there's no day, there's no night, there's no seconds, there's no minutes, there's nothing. You're just existing in this cold, murky, ever-heavy atmosphere, like they put you inside a vial of mercury.~ Rod Steiger (On the Edge of Darkness)
Gee... a regular moment of timeless illumination... and yet darkness, not light... DL

Imagination is more important than knowledge ...Albert Einstein
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. ....George Bernard Shaw
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined ....Henry David Thoreau
To imagine is to realize that which already exists in the abstract... DL

As you sit amidst the trees and stare out over the ocean, timeless, spaceless, peaceful, you know that what you perceive is within you and without you. But you are experiencing it within. Here is where you perceive the Reality of it. This is who you are. You are the Beingness which is the Light you have been searching for. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (The Mysteries of Life in Hawaii)
Beingness is the Isness of that which is not illusion, that which is the Eternal Truth... DL

When your thoughts are clear and steadfast, begin to speak them as truths. Say them out loud. Use the great command that calls forth creative power: I am. Make I-am statements to others. "I am" is the strongest creative statement in the universe. Whatever you think, whatever you say, after the words "I am" sets into motion those experiences, calls them forth, brings them to you. ~ Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations With God, 1995)
I AM is the self declaration of existence, beingness, isness... Truth... DL

Do not wait for Life. Do not Long for it.
Be aware, Always and at every moment,
that the Miracle is in the here and now.~

And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin
When it is more painful to stay the same than it is to change a metanoia will occur...DL

Things are changing rapidly in the world and in the realm of Q.M.I. as well. As we plan our move to New Mexico we have come to realize how important it is to really convey to people that the "Teaching" offered through this organization is not simply a review of past metaphysical discoveries but tools and techniques through which you can change your thinking, your consciousness, in such a way as to alter the life you have been living in a better way. This is because we outpicture our consciousness in the world and it mirrors our subconscious mind as well as the collective unconscious of humanity. In this way we can actually control our destiny and stop running into dead ends or negative situations and learn how to navigate the journey as we discover who we are and what our reality is about. Please contact us regarding this information so we can put you on our list and get back to you with information on the classes and other aspects to this Teaching. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. Quantum Metaphysics Institute)
What could be more important than learning how to care for your mind...DL

The Vedic concept of Rita anticipates the idea of karma which was developed later to express the dynamic interplay of all things and events. The word karma means ‘action’ and denotes the ‘active’, or dynamic, interrelation of all phenomena. In the words of the Bhagavad Gita, “All actions take place in time by the interweaving of the forces of nature. ~ Fritjof Capra
Action and Reaction is the interplay of principle expressing Infinite variety...DL

Begin with the words of Truth that you have learned, and which perhaps you have as yet only comprehended with the intellect. You must be willing to take the very first light you receive and use it faithfully, earnestly, to help both yourself and others. Sometimes you will be almost overcome by questions and doubts arising in your own mind when you are looking in vain for results. But you must with effort pass the place of doubt; and some day, in the fullness of God's time, while you are using the words of Truth, they will suddenly be illumined and become to you the living word with you.... You will no longer dwell in darkness, for the light will be within your own heart; and the word will be made flesh to you; that is, you will be conscious of a new and more divine life in your body, and a new and more divine love for all people, a new and more divine power to accomplish. ~ H. Emilie Cady (Lessons in Truth)
I AM the fullness of Truth shining the light of total awareness that I AM... DL

Futurism is the study of what the future might be and what projections or extrapolations might come up with to get a better view of what is to come based on existing reality and also how to prepare for changes which if ignored could create complications. If everything which happens is a result of our state of consciousness we should be able to look at our state of consciousness, individually and collective to better understand the world we are currently creating. in doing so we can use self-observation and actually change who we are by discovering those things within our consciousness which are not in alignment with a Wholistic consciousness. This will be the focus of a series of classes in our new school in New Mexico. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
I am a result of my consciousness yesterday, today and forever... DL

"LET, there be light, and there was light." We seem to hear those words spoken in English by a great and terrible Jehovah. Unconsciously we think of God as speaking English, and yet the Frenchman, reading the same verse, no doubt hears the same God speaking: Que la lumiere soit." This does not mean a thing to one who cannot understand French. Until we begin to understand that words are only sounds, noises, explosions of breath, which, in limitation,att empt to express the Secret Power, we will fail to sense the Spirit and will die filled with the dead letter. Gradually awakening man begins to understand how utterly impossible it is to make anything happen by mere use of words. The Word (the power and the Glory) which is spoken of in the Bible is thickly hung with "words" made by man, like barnacles on a ship. These words are only alive to the degree that they convey the SPIRIT of the WORD. The moment we find the SPIRIT of the WORD, we discard thewords, as we discard the shell of a nut once we have the kernel. "The still small Voice" is the loudest voice in the world, because it does not speak words, but the WORD. ~ Walter C. Lanyon (The Secret Power)
I am Light, I am Knowing, I am Mind... DL

Obviously one must hold oneself responsible for the evil impulses of one's dreams. In what other way can one deal with them? Unless the content of the dream rightly understood is inspired by alien spirits, it is part of my own being. ~ Sigmund Freud
I am the sole creator of my thoughts and my actions in this universe... DL
Saturday ~ September 18 ~ 2010
We suffer from a hallucination, from a false and distorted sensation of our own existence as living organisms. Most of us have the sensation that "I myself" is a seperate center of feeling and action, living inside and bounded by the physical body-a center which "confronts" an "external" world of people and things, making contact through the senses with a universe both alien and strange. ~ Alan Watts (1915 - 1973)
I have been a stranger in a strange land... ~ Exodus 2:22
But I AM in the realm of all that is for I AM all... DL
Friday ~ September 17 ~ 2010
Life is strong, and you are strong with the strength of the Infinite; forget all else as you revel in this strength. You are strong and can say I AM. You have been laboring under an illusion; now you are disillusioned. Now you know, and knowing is using the law in a constructive way. "I and my Father are One;" this is strength or the weak, and life for all who believe. ~ Ernest Holmes (Creative Mind and Success, 1919)
Know your Essence as you realize your I AM beyond the little self...DL

Do not wait for Life. Do not Long for it. Be aware, Always and at every moment,

Truth: Some people who have been making a special study of the mind find it a fact that certain wrong or false beliefs held by us are really the cause of all sorts of troublephysical, moral, and financial. They have learned that wrong beliefs arise only in the human mind; they have learned and actually proved that we can, by a persistent effort of the will, change the beliefs, and by this means alone entirely change our troublesome circumstances and bodily conditions. ~ H. Emilie Cady (Lessons in Truth)
The Truth is always there waiting to be realized... DL
Tuesday ~ September 14 ~ 2010
To finally discover "the Truth" within you still does not mean that you have the right to impose that on others around you. Even if the Truth you discovered is right and True.... it may be right and True for you at that time and others may not be ready to receive that understanding yet. If it is imposed it could damage their ability to ever accept the Truth. Be patient. Work on yourself. There's more to do. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
The Truth does not wait, it is... all else is waiting... DL

I-am-ness: Spiritual - Theosophy Dictionary on I-am-ness
I-am-ness Ahankara, self-hood, egoship; an evolution of consciousness centered in manas, by which manas becomes the field for the play of self-consciousness. Also, the illusion of separate selfhood.
I-am-ness: Hindu - Hinduism Dictionary on I-ness
I-ness: The conceiving of oneself as an "I," or ego, which Hinduism considers a state to be transcended.
I-am-ness: Spiritual - Theosophy Dictionary on I Am That I Am
I Am That I Am 'ehyeh 'asher 'ehyeh (Hebrew) A title given by Jehovah to himself, a variation of I-am-I, indicating that Jehovah, whatever he may claim to be, is merely one of the gods of the manifested world, a Demiourgos, and not the Supreme.
I-am-ness: Spiritual - Theosophy Dictionary on I-am, I-am-I
I-am, I-am-I I-am-I denotes self-consciousness in which the essential consciousness is reflected in a transmitting vehicle or soul. I-am denotes simple unadulterate being, and is used as a name for the cosmic self.
Thus the I-am-I is a lower manifestation of the I-am, which is abstract and incomprehensible to ordinary human mentality. Philosophically, I-am-I is a temporary production of Purusha working in and through the prakritis, or of the image-making power inherent in human consciousness called ahankara (the "I-creating" faculty); so that when evolution has been completed, the I-am-I or self-consciousness will have risen through its various higher forms to become at least for a manvantara the cosmic self.
The consciousness expressed into the phrase I-am is also, when compared with the cosmic self, the limited and therefore imperfect demiurgic state, the Demiurge being the production of that cosmic self. Hence, not only the I-am-I, but likewise the I-am, are withdrawn and become latent during pralaya in paramatman or the inexpressible divine.
I AM speaking to you from within your own Consciousness... for I AM... DL

Free will is the function of the Master within us. Our 'will' is the supremacy of one desire over another. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Do not allow a desire to tell you what to do if that desire is not yours... DL

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become. ~ Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he ~ Holy Bible

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 (Native American Wisdom)
Be still and know that the answer is already there to receive... ~ DL

It is clear, then, that wisdom is knowledge having to do with certain principles and causes. But now, since it is this knowledge that we are seeking, we must consider the following point: of what kind of principles and of what kind of causes is wisdom the knowledge? (Aristotle, Metaphysics)
And physics is in the same boat as mathematics. It studies the accidents and principles of entities, qua participating in process and not qua being. And in contrast we have said that primary science is the science of these things in so far as they, its subjects, are things that are, and not in regard to any other feature. Hence both physics and mathematics are to be considered mere parts of total understanding. (Aristotle, Metaphysics)
And if Infinity were not Reality, how could we ever know everything? ~ DL
Wednesday ~ September 8 ~ 2010
To sum up, there are many worlds, possible and actual worlds, in which a search for knowledge and for regularities would fail. And even in the world as we actually know it from the sciences, the occurrence of conditions under which life, and a search for knowledge , could arise - and succeed- seems to be almost infinitely improbable. Moreover, it seems that if ever such conditions should appear, they would be bound to disappear again, after a time which, cosmologically speaking, is very short. ~ Karl Popper, 1975)
And now the window is opening up to learn how to perceive True Reality... DL

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom. ~ Albert Einstein
Freedom is where we begin to see our own personal slavery... DL

Think of Labor Day in terms of "The Work". This is the process when one utilizes self-observation and discovers things about his or her self. The point of this is to let go of the false and come to understand that which is true. It begins in psychological levels and moves to more philosophical concepts and finally it rests on exquisite spiritual understandings, some of which are very symbolic and others mathematical in their approach. It finalizes in dealing with "that which is" and "that which is not".... very much like ones and zeroes. Interesting. How quantum. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. Quantum Metaphysics Institute)
I AM Real and that which is false is illusion therefore Reality is all there is... DL

Human beings are inherently capable of being violent. This is because anger and brute force are survival dynamics which exist deep within our subconscious minds and are activated when one is threatened to varying degrees. Even education does not rid us of this violence. And for survival purposes we respond and react to certain needs in order to survive because it is stronger than desiring to die. This means that all it takes is a philosophy or a belief or a political movement to come along which can tap into your survival dynamics and those people attempting to draw you into their need for power will find whatever way, whatever lie, whatever will appeal to you to try and get you to do what they need to attain power. Then you must begin to look at sure signs of this behavior. One of those is to get people to believe that "the end justifies the means." This is often used and it is very effective. Spiritual understanding and Psychological insight can make tremendous strides in the area of combatting those mind-sets. This is what I am attempting to do through Q.M.I. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. Quantum Metaphysics Institute)
I AM Real and I AM Free and I AM All that ever will Be... DL
Saturday ~ September 4 ~ 2010
If numbers are imporant and can be found in everything, and a principle of such everywhere, then Reality much be based on mathematics and mathematics must be based on Infinity since that would include all numbers. This allness would then be the framework for all that is and somehow would be that which is responsible for all things. Thus we live in a mathematical Universe and that perfect system which is Infinite, Whole, Complete, Perfect, Absolute, Harmonious, Balanced, would of necessity be that which is in back of time, space and change. What would we call that? ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. Quantum Metaphysics Institute)
I AM Real and I AM is that which is connected to All There Is... DL
Friday ~ September 3 ~ 2010
need for us to raise our consciousness is more than simply filling our heads with more data. It is more than taking on a new philosophy or some more sophisticated political approach or deciding to be an "activist". It is about reaching into our psyche and touching our Being and making changes in the inner workings of our sense of Self and who we are and what life is about and what Reality really is and just what is Truth and how does that affect everything else we come into contact with as we move about and breathe. This is a study in which one truly becomes changed and they begin to reveal to themselves who they are and always were in that realm which is in back of time, space and change. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
I AM Real and I always have been and I always will be... DL
Thursday ~ September 2 ~ 2010
There is only One Life, and that Life is God; because that Life is God, that Life is perfect. Since there is only One Life, then that One Life is man's life --- the only Life there is for man to have or to be. Therefore, nothing apart from that One Life (which is your life) is present or has any power. Hence, God the One Life, is all the power, all the presence, all the mind-intelligence there is.
This is a statement of Being; it is simply one way of stating it. There are other ways just as good, but perhaps this way may help you. It was the way of Jesus; and, "My way is easy," said this Master of human problems. Truth is always simple, never intricate. ~ Frances Wade Gott (The Science of Being, 1923)
I AM Life, I AM Mind, I AM All there is... I AM Infinity... DL
Wednesday ~ September 1 ~ 2010
We are moving closer and closer to a real breakthrough in consciousness. This means that this is the optimum time one can choose to make changes in their consciousness and this window of metanoia is upon us now. As we "work" and study and choose to let go of erroneous information we can more easily receive the understanding we have desired for a lifetime, an eon, the lifetime of a star, the moment before the dawn. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
I AM all knowing and need only choose to let go of my misbelieved limitations... DL
