The man who abides in the will of God wills nothing else than what God is, and what He wills. If he were ill he would not wish to be well. If he really abides in God's will, all pain is to him a joy, all complication, simple: yea, even the pains of hell would be a joy to him. He is free and gone out from himself, and from all that he receives, he must be free. If my eye is to discern colour, it must itself be free from all colour. The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God's eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love. ~ Meister Eckhart
So many viewpoints coming to understand infinite variety being Infinite Mind...DL

He went on to talk about Heisenberg's uncertainty principle: In the late 1800's, Werner Heisenberg, a German scientist, had developed a mathematical model that showed that we could only know either the position or the momentum of an electron, but never both, because to know one factor destroyed both our capability to know the other factor and its existence. Although it described subatomic phenomena, it applied equally well to so-called real-world events. For instance, if we know how fast a train is moving, we cannot say with certainty where it is, because it is, in fact, moving. In order to determine the precise position of the train, we must destroy its momentum, its forward speed. At the moment we fix its position, its speed can no longer be known with certainty. As soon as we try to determine its speed again, our certain knowledge of its position evaporates." ~ Stephen Lewis and Evan Slawson (Sanctuary: The Path To Consciousness,1998)
So many viewpoints, so little time, but it is really the only thing to do... DL

The journey is a lifelong quest of self-discovery which is made up of a number of personal discoveries, each one greater than the last, and each one leading you forever onward to Higher Levels of the Divine Quest which in the end will mean nothing to anyone but you. The minute someone admires your quest they are identifying with you because of their own personal quest and yet the journey forever ventures onward because that is the nature of unfoldment. That is intention. And each level you achieve there will be a great sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment which will always be with you and you you must continue your journey. It is a journey where the puzzle of who you were and the puzzle of who you are offer you the polar opposites of a map which has always been within. It will be the journey of a lifetime. But in order to engage in this journey you will need tools and you will need a map and you will need a key. You, of course, are the doorway through which you discover your Self. And where you go no one can follow you. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? ~ Mark Twain (“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899)

Monday ~ December 20 ~ 2010
Sometimes we get caught up in worrying about what is wrong in our life instead of focusing on the actual intention of what you believe would be right and pursuing the Truth of that. In Realty the Truth of what you wish to be already is. It is simply a matter of understanding that and accepting it. The letting go of the error is a manditory part of that but often once you see and realize the Truth, the letting go is already done. Live long... forever, and prosper... you have it all. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
You only reach down to help someone up, but you must reach up to help yourself... DL

Spirit as Energy
When we get out of the glass bottles of our own ego, and when we escape like squirrels from turning in the cages of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright but things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, undying life will rush in, and passion will make our bodies taut with power, we shall stamp our feet with new power and old things will fall down, we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like burnt paper. ~ D.H. Lawrence
Observe and rejoice in what you learn within but do not look back...DL

If you were not allowed to discover your own true nature by experiencing adversity on your path, it wouldn't be your nature that you discover. How can you discover something if it isn't you who is doing the discovering. Even in the midst of turmoil you as Consciousness are wrestling to understand and accept your True Divinity. That True Divinity has always been there otherwise it wouldn't be True for Truth is Eternal. Your discovery of this Truth is a process of unfoldment just like that of the opening of a beautiful rose. Open up and discover the beauty which has been kept secret for so long. And when you discover it you will say that you knew it all along. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar. (Q.M.I.)
Knock and the door will be opened because you are already on the other side... DL

The one real hope for mankind is that they realize that they need to "wake up" and that they can accept the idea that they need a process, a teaching, a school, a system, something which as a Teacher they trust that can walk them through procedures and processes and learn how to change their consciousness. Everyone thinks they will do it someday but then they don't. They think simply thinking "nice thoughts" or giving someone a friend meal will achieve those results. Frankly it is nice to be kind but if you do not change your consciousness you will not receive the benefits from that nor will you help others. As you change consciousness within yourself, you change the entire collective unconscious mind and everyone benefits from that. Think about this and begin to be proactive as it pertains to inner change. Blessings to you all. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar, Q.M.I.
Reality is there within you if you learn how to open up to it... DL
Tuesday ~ December 14 ~ 2010
Truth is the only substance in Reality. We think that Truth is our determination of the validity of what we perceive. But we no longer know what the validity is that perceive. We have become sleepwalkers on a planet of darkness where Truth is not valued as real meaning in our daily grind of fiction and fantasy even in our jobs, our relationships, our friendships, our belief systems our religions our philosophies and our interpretation of what we see with our own eyes. We must become acquainted with spiritual Truth and what it means and who we are and what does it mean to the Truth of who you are? Be still and know that YOU are the Truth. You are INFINITE MIND and YOU have always existed and shall continue to exist FOREVER. But we must WAKE UP. To do this we must study, practice and work within so that we can awaken and finally see the PARADISE which is the HEAVEN within and HEAVEN without. Wake up! ~ Dr. Derek Lamar, Q.M.I.
The Reality is always there just waiting to be discovered... DL

Instead of thinking of the people whom you have believed to be evil and an undesirable influence, think of the goodness of God in the life of all His children. Think of God as everywhere-present light, love, peace, power, and life. Think of all men, all women, all children as abiding in God's presence and expressing God's qualities. As you do this, you will touch the reality of individuals, and you will invite only the best from them. Spirit will respond as you expect it to, for the Spirit of God is in every person. Some persons have not yet wakened to this realization; but as you declare the Truth for them and expect it to express through them toward you, you will receive only loving and considerate treatment from them. ~ Myrtle Fillmore (Healing Letters)
In Loving others we discover the God within them and ourselves... DL

AXIOMS OF TRUTH
When reason is lacking assertion springs up. Axioms are far from being assertions, for they are invincible evidences. Even true statements become vanities when the mental and spiritual machinery that prompts their utterance is not set in motion by the irresistible and spontaneous appeal of evidence.
Of the hundreds of students who have answered me that they were sure that there is the truth, that it is God, that it is all, one, indivisible, unchangeable, eternal, free, omnipotent, good, etc. etc., not one, I may say in fact, has been able to offer me any powerful reason why these assertions are so, if they are; thus it happens that their faith in them is nearly as impractical and quite as dogmatic as though these statements were false. Notwithstanding the truth and power of these expressions, their being delivered by mere talking machines places them, and all the more their remarkable conclusions, in a very absurd light. Hence we find many denying the reality of evil and matter, and even curing ills by these words, who have only a spasmodic and superinduced conviction on the subject.
This in a measure accounts for the transient and uncertain results. But if these statements are true we shall not be disappointed if we expect to find them backed by sufficient power of proof not only to force them into stable and constant recognition, but also to bring forward their complete conclusions to the perfect freedom of man.
Truth is not awaiting man's recognition and approval either to exist, or to carry on its thorough sway. no matter what men may think, say, or do, they all agree in meaning that truth is "that which is," falsity is "that which is not." They are not "invited" to think this way, they are "compelled" to so think.
Now there cannot be anything besides that which is, therefore of necessity we must say that "truth is all" there is or can be. That which is not is false, is not at all. All the acceptance falsity ever gets is borrowed from truth.
Again they say truth is indivisible; which is so, simply because it is all, and there is not anything else to divide it with or put between the parts. They "call" it one, because of the supposing it to be divided by itself, for anything divided by itself is one. These are compulsions of reason: they are not persuasions.
Also truth is unchangeable, because there can not be anything besides "what its' for it to change into.
Moreover truth is eternal, because beginning and ending would be changes and "what is" can not change, therefore it is not temporal.
You can see why it is vain for people who are looking to escape from evil through knowledge of truth to hope for some change; truth can not set free by change but by unchangeableness. It is liability to change that would be misery.
Again since truth is eternal it is not an effect from a cause; nor can truth cause anything, inasmuch as there is not anything else besides "what is" to be caused. Because truth is neither caused nor causes any effect, there is no reality or truth in the law of cause and effect. Hence there is no truth in creation which is an effect. Inasmuch then as the things about us present the appearance of being divisible, temporal, and changeable, there are not at all, because they can not be the truth.
What then is power? It must be the truth or not be at all. It can not be a change-producing energy. It can not be causation.
You will feel the force of the power of truth by noticing that the axioms of truth never "solicit" but always "force" your acceptance of them. They do not say "will you please believe me," but "you must, you do, you can not help yourself." This will be found to be a great relief to those who are "trying to believe" in "what is so," when it contradicts appearances, which are nothing in themselves but effects. There are no phases in the moon, they are effects only; there is no water, only an effect brought about by the union of two totally different gases: there is no matter, only a meagerly explained combination or crystallization of an imponderable and theoretical ether.
Those who argue that matter is a vibrating force find themselves in falsity, because "what is" can not change or vibrate.
Since truth is indivisible and one, it can not be in itself a law of opposites: it can not be both good and evil. Hence either good is falsity and evil is truth, or evil is falsity and good is truth.
If truth is evil, we shall "never" escape it, for it is forever; if evil is falsity, we may expect to find deliverance in knowing the t ruth. This hints to us why Confucius taught that sincerity (truth) delivers men from their bondage to laws and things into a miraculous life: why Zoroaster taught that mankind in this material world comes into perfect prosperity and wondrous dominion by the "word of truth;" why Gautama made a hundred million converts in one lifetime to the doctrine that the knowledge of truth delivers from all evil; why Patanjali proclaimed that veracity in the light of absolute truth endues men with power to realize their most extravagant ideals without delay; why Jesus said that the knowledge of truth would set free and that by the "Spirit of Truth" they should become (and did so become) marvelously wise and powerful. ~ George Edwin Burnell (AXIOMS: The Book of Health and Science of Truth, 1897, 1902)
The conclusion being that "Truth is all there is" and all else is a product of the human mind... DL

In discovering "Reality" one must realize that all things must equal each other. Everything is different in the sense of infinite variety and yet it is all the same. Just as you get back what you put out, the principle must be found in all things or it is not really a valid principle. Just as the "Truth" of "Love" is everywhere present regardless of whether we are perceiving it at just any moment in time... it is there.... you can reach out into it like a hand disappearing into the fog... it is there to be found and in "Reality" it is to be found within. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Love is not simply what a child needs but it is the adhesive which holds the entire universe together... It is the Oneness which holds everything together...DL
Friday ~ December 10 ~ 2010
It says in the Bible in I Corinthians 13:11-12 "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." (But now we look into a dark mirror and yet when I am able to look myself in the face I can almost understand what it means to know myself as God knows me.) We must wake up as we look into the mirror and see ourselves and begin to loosen our hold on the human role and allow the God role of who we really are to be made manifest within us. Within "I AM."
Being... the Eternal existence of that which I AM... DL

Another day in this carnival of souls. Another night's sands end as quickly as it goes. The memories are shadows, ink on the page. And I can't seem to find my way home (lyrics: Far From Home)
When we were children we used to think that when we grow up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... to be alive is to be vulnerable. ~ Madelaine L'Engle
Children begin by loving their parents. As they grow older they judge them. Sometime later they forgive them. ~ Oscar Wilde
Brain-washing begins at home... and they never know it... DL
Wednesday ~ December 8 ~ 2010
Based on the "holographic universe" concept, if we are all reflections of a One Reality then we are reflections of God. This means that we are the MIND which is the only one real substance in the Universe and everything else we perceive is the illusion of separate thoughts which actually are not separate but which are the mirrors of our own MIND. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar, Q.M.I.
Out of Light comes the ability to see... and to see is to understand... DL

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. ~ Albert Einstein
We must focus on some of the new phrases used in our world as an extension of Einstein's comment: "we must think outside of the box," "we must push the envelope," "we must raise our sights," and "you must step outside of your self." And one pretty well known spiritual Teacher said: "You must be born again."
A problem arises out of a certain state of consciousness while the solution arrives by rising up above that state of consciousness... DL

Intention ultimately is that Consciousness in back of time, space and change which is the Essence of who you are and it is forever drawing you into knowing yourself...and driving you internally toward your Self. It is the reason we ask ourselves: "Who am I? What am I? Where am I? Why am I?" This is our internal subdirectory of existence because the resulting reality is "I AM that I AM" and it includes ALL that is knowing on the Absolute level. This is the beginning of beginnings for the new student of Quantum Metaphysics and also it is the historical threshold upon which we reside now in the 21st century. The triggering of conscious awareness of this information often can induce healings within the self on multiple levels of your Being. You will sense that you have changed and you will begin a different life at that point. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
And in the beginning was the Word and the Word was I AM...
Sunday ~ December 5 ~ 2010
Quantum mechanics and general relativity were as new, as surprising, as anyone could ask for. But they were believed ultimately not because they imparted an intellectual thrill but because they were effective: they accurately predicted the outcome of experiments. Old theories are old for good reason. They are robust, flexible. They have an uncanny correspondence to reality. They may even be True. ~ John Horgan (The End of Science: Facing the Limits of Knowledge in the Twilight of the Scientific Age, 1996)
All is revealed to be denied ~ Robin Scott of "M" (Pop Musik)
Saturday ~ December 4 ~ 2010
The journeys each of us engages in becomes a map of our unfoldment. That must always include the stories within, the challenges, discoveries, love, triumphs, broken hearts, friendship, spiritual understanding, creative projects, discovering music, dance, art, learning about life, trying to discover who we are and the tears and laughter competing with each other for misunderstood importance. All works together to help us grow and discover ourselves and each other. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
All is above and all is below and all is reflecting that which is so... DL
Friday ~ December 3 ~ 2010
The Eastern mystics see the universe as an inseparable web, whose interconnections are dynamic and not static. The cosmic web is alive; it moves and grows and changes continually. Modern physics, too, has come to conceive of the universe as such a web of relations and, like Eastern mysticism, has recognised that this web is intrinsically dynamic. The dynamic aspect of matter arises in quantum theory as a consequence of the wave-nature of subatomic particles, and is even more essential in relativity theory, where the unification of space and time implies that the being of matter cannot be separated from its activity. The properties of subatomic particles can therefore only be understood in a dynamic context; in terms of movement, interaction and transformation. ~ Fritjof Capra (The Tao of Physics)
All is connected and All is One. This is the Universe... this is Reality... DL

First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination. ~ Napoleon Hill
In the beginning was a party left over from the ending of the other universe... DL
Wednesday ~ December 1 ~ 2010
This same man examines the heavens, the earth, the seas, and the universe as a whole, aiming to discover the origin and destiny of living things, when and how they die, which of them is mortal and perishable, and which divine and eternal. In the end he will come nearer to a comprehension of the being who guides and regulates them all. And eventually he will realize that he himself is not confined by the walls of anyone’s city, but is a citizen of the whole universe. ~ Cicero
I AM is the hat of the Universal Traveler who is here and there at the same time... DL
