Ascension is like a Translation ... it is the rising to heaven without experiencing natural death ... one can experience partial ascension everytime they have a truly lucid moment from beyond their limited self.
When we see someone else and look into their eyes and realize that we are looking at ourself ... we have ascended.
When we see all of our memories before us and realize that we played all of those roles and it was mind unfolding, we have ascended.
When we realize in the bottom of despair that what we are experiencing is all illusion and we stand up in the light knowing that all goodness is within and we must but only speak the word, we have ascended.
When we touched the hem of His garment and we are healed and realize the tassles were on our own robe, we have ascended.
When we realize the anger at someone is because of the hurt we experienced as a child and that it need never hurt us again, we have ascended.
When we touch the faces of those we love and we do not need their love in return because we have already received it, we have ascended.
When we know as we speak to others we are alone as ONE, we have ascended.
When we can discover God in a bee or a flower, in a tree or a river, we have ascended.
When our worst pain becomes a path which leads us to the light by providing us a shadow, we have ascended.
When our words become music which is a song in unision, we have ascended.
When the sun rises and the sun sets and we know it never left, we have ascended.
When the bird sings a song from your heart and you reach out and touch his soul with food, we have ascended.
When the male within us is female, and the female becomes male, we have ascended.
When as we touch we are touched, our Oneness reveals the Sun, we have ascended.
When we see that death is a door and a door is unfoldment, we have ascended.
When we sense God in someone's words, we discover God in ourselves and we have ascended.
and so it is. ~ Derek Lamar
Ascension is rising to the occasion of Reality... DL

Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively and yet with all his heart and mind and strength. ~ Aldous Huxley
To be still is to quell the ego man, not the voice from on high... DL

Just as in earthly life lovers long for the moment when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, to let their souls blend in a soft whisper, so the mystic longs for the moment when in prayer he can, as it were, creep into God. ~ Soren Kierkegaard
Silently one breathes in Truth and realizes a Light goes on within... DL

More and more often we seem to get closer and closer to what appears to be a critical point in human existence and some might think that it would drive them to pursue or understand "Truth," or to seek answers of a Higher level within themselves and yet it seems to simply continue to move people toward a new direction of personal survival or someone else to support or vote for or survival foods or stockpiling such or falling back on some old religious belief which hadn't answered your questions before but hope they will now. Hello? It is time to reassess one's dilemma with themselves as to what they are facing. Questions like "Who am I?", "What am I?," "What is the Truth?" and hope or pray or meditate on that arriving for you as to how to proceed. At some point you will be directed to answers which can help you "survive" this crisis in humankind's history. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

The point in changing your consciousness is to become who you really are. However, in doing so life gets better and better and who can argue with that? Release the Real YOU to express the enormous creativity which is held back within you. Discover reality and experience love and sharing and being more than you ever have before. Live life, be life, become ONE with the Universe. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Let there be change in me and I will discover a new you... - DL

If Allness is not understood and accepted the mathematics of this changes Perfection into "imperfection" because suddenly that which is perfect is no longer an absolute therefore there is room for something other than that whole Truth. Just as Wholeness can become unwhole or Order becomes disorder, or Harmoney becomes dis-harmony, or life becomes temporary and death ensues. But Truth is really always in operation therefore this belief only creates a "false reality" because there is no real power in illusion therefore the creation of a "false reality" is not enough to actually affect True Reality which continues to enjoy its permanent perfect Absolute existence. And it is there we must always reach into within ourselves and take hold of that Truth which is forever and which is the only True Reality which "I AM." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Let there be that moment of "I AM" which never agains says "I wish I could..." - 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, 340BC)
Metaphysics involves intuitive knowledge of unprovable starting-points (concepts and truth) and demonstrative knowledge of what follows from them. (Aristotle, Metaphysics, 340BC)
Demonstration is also something necessary, because a demonstration cannot go otherwise than it does, ... And the cause of this lies with the primary premises/principles. (Aristotle, Metaphysics, 340 BC)
The first philosophy (Metaphysics) is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And here we will have the science to study that which is just as that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which, just as a thing that is, it has. (Aristotle, Metaphysics, 340BC)
The entire preoccupation of the physicist is with things that contain within themselves a principle of movement and rest. And to seek for this is to seek for the second kind of principle, that from which comes the beginning of the change. (Aristotle, Metaphysics, 340BC)
Let there be those who desire to know more and positive change will appear... DL

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. ~ Albert Einstein

Those who predict the end of the world is near clearly have nothing to offer in the way of spiritual resources which in fact would be to declare only Life to be the real outcome. Change is not the end but rather the beginning. And the beginning does not require that the majority of planet earth be wiped out. Those who declare the end of the world have nothing left to offer in the way of useful information but rather enlist humanity into fear for personal profit. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Let there be Life and there is Life... DL

In the midst of what seems like chaos is the explosion of Consciousness expressing the infinite variety of Truth and the perfection and wholeness there to be discovered. It is Reality. And all is ONE. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

We have to look at Krishna in two different ways, and then we can look at ourselves the same way. We exist at two levels - one at the level of waves and another at the level of the ocean. As waves we are individual human beings and as the ocean we are the supreme being. ~ Osho Rajneesh

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
Fear is the direct contact with the ego and one's separation from their "I AM"... the "i am" is the "i am" all alone whereas the "I AM" is One with all that is... DL

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float. ~ Alan Watts
If you were a fish you could breathe under water, if you were supposed to realize you are God, you'd be given a mind...and imagination... DL

Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Laughter relieves us of superfluous energy, which, if it remained unused, might become negative, that is, poison. Laughter is the antidote. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff
Without struggle, no progress and no result. Every breaking of habit produces a change in the machine. ~ G. I. Gurdjieff

The path of spiritual development basically begins and ends with self-observation. It is all about the "self" and the "Self" and one being the ego-identity whereas the other being the "I AM" Self or the state of Real Objectivity or connection to the ONE MIND which is our only True Identity. Some people take a few classes or a few weeks of study, some even a couple of years but truly if this is something which means something to you it will be a part of your life forever. It isn't one of those courses you take in order that you become more prosperos. Not that you can't study metaphysics and become "more prosperos" but that really isn't the point. The point is that you become more at one with your True Self and more in tune with Reality. But for all of this to work you must be willing to let go of false beliefs you have about your self, your world and the Universe. If we don't let go of false information nothing will change in our lives. It may look like things are changing but really, they are just rattling on based on our own previous programming. And good luck with that. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

The Priesthood of Melchizedek...
The concept of the Priesthood of Melchizedek or sometimes referred to as The Order of Melchizedek (O.M.) is part of the ancient teachings referred to specifically in the Bible. It is a mysterious and seldom referenced aspect of esoteric Christianity and this and other elements of mysticism have seldom been handed down through religious channels. It has been preserved hither and yon through the ancient schools which understand the Path that follows internally in accordance to their True Self. No matter where you get to with your studies you will always be dealing with "your self". Even if you appear to be working with others and helping others you must always know that still, it is your self, that you are working with. If you begin to become attracted to the ego's temptation which whispers to you that you are "helping other people" then you will have allowed duality, once again, to control your consciousness, and you will have thwarted the potential help you might have actually been to yourself and others. Always continue to work on your self and you cannot go wrong. If you find a teacher advanced enough to no longer be working on him or herself, turn and run in the opposite direction as fast as you can. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

There are days when you feel you are finally getting to the top of the hill and suddenly you can see the valley below. You breathe in deep and continue to view the outstretched marvel of your discovery. You realize from where you have come and now you know that you have reached "the promised land." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)

Everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is CONSCIOUS: i.e., endowed with a consciousness of its own kind and on its own plane of perception. ~ H. P. Blavatsky
Everything that is, was, and will be, eternally IS, even the countless forms, which are finite and perishable only in their objective, not in their ideal Form. ~ H. P. Blavatsky
Reality is everywhere present, conscious, and infinite... DL

A thought can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully, not by dwelling upon it, not by attempting to put it out directly, but by...putting some other object of thought into the mind. This may be, for example, the ideal of full and perfect self mastery, or it may be something of a nature entirely distinct from the thought which presents itself, something to which the mind goes easily and naturally. —Ralph Waldo Trine (Character Building Thought Power)

Where from do all these worlds come? They come from space. All beings arise from space, and into space they return; space is indeed their beginning, and space is their final end. ~ Upanishads
There is something beyond our mind which abides in silence. It is the supreme mystery beyond thought. Let one's mind and one's subtle body rest upon that, and not rest upon anything else. God is sound and silence. Attain therefore contemplation, contemplation in silence on him. ~ Upanishads
There is a light that shines beyond all things on Earth, beyond us all, beyond the heaven, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in our heart. ~ Upanishads
The Fantastic Voyage is not in the body or in space but deep within MIND... DL

By choosing your thoughts, and by selecting which emotional currents you will release and which you will reinforce,
you determine the quality of your Light. You determine the effects that you will have upon others, and the nature of the experiences of your life. ~ Gary Zukav (Seat of The Soul)
Not choosing is a choice... reach out and allow Intention to give you life... DL

It isn't in learning more stuff that will set you free. If you were a bird that needed to be set free one would understand that there was something holding you down, gravity, weight, baggage, burdens, something which had to become loosened and let go of and then you could fly. So it is with true spiritual freedom, it is in the letting go, not the piling on of more knowledge which shall set you free. There may be some tools and techniques which you will learn to aid in this process but in time, or outside of time, even they must be left behind. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Moving from here to there is the same as moving from there to here... DL

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

What is it that we are supposed to do or understand at this time in human history? It is my feeling that all of this is different for each person. But essentially it is a personal appraisal of the "self" and discovering who they/we are and what Reality is. It is the discovery that "in the back of time, space and change there is a fundamental reality." And this reality is MIND and it is INFINITE. But it isn't simply infinite thinking or infinite ideas but it is an Axiomatic Reasoning process based on Absolutes which reflect the Truth of this MIND and it is the "same yesterday, today and forever." Also we need to come to understand that "of the many roles I play in life this is not my True Self but what I am is Consciousness which is not of the many roles I play." And at some point we must recognize that this Infinite Reality is ONENESS and that ONENESS is LOVE. How can ONE MIND not be LOVE? And this MIND does therefore LOVE itself because it SELF is ALL THERE IS. Therefore the Truth is that MIND is Love out and back to itself infinitely. There you go. That is all you need to know. But understanding comes with that as well and the sense of total acceptance of the Self which comes from the total acceptance of this INFINITE MIND which in Reality we are ONE with but do not realize it very often. Fruitful journeys to you all. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I. "In pursuit of psychological and spiritual realities.")
Mind is ONENESS... you're it... DL

You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult."
~ Paramahansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi)
Mind is all there is... think about it... DL

I, the Exhaustless Everything, the Author and Finisher of all things, took down my book, my body, my life-experience, from the shelves, the myriad, mysterious shelves, and I began to read the contents of my ancient Mind. And as I read, I filled in, interpolated, wrote in, things that would explain how this world came about --- this book. ~ George Edwin Burnell (Chronicles of Reality, 1922-1924)

You can never really die. How frustrating that must be for the one who no longer desires to live. But in actuality they simply no longer wish to live as they are currently living. So they wish they could die. But if they would die to the reason they no longer desired to live then they would instantly want to live forever. And forever they shall. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Living is the one thing we can do forever... DL
