Mind is the architect that builds its own idea, and produces all harmony that appears. There is no other healer in the case. If mortal mind, through the action of fear, manifest inflammation and a belief of chronic or acute disease, by removing the cause in that so-called mind the effect or disease will disappear and health will be restored; for health, alias harmony, is the normal manifestation of man in Science. The divine Principle which governs the universe, including man, if demonstrated, is sufficient for all emergencies. ~ Mary Baker Eddy (Miscellaneous Writings 1883 - 1896)
Perfect health is all there is, disease is a daydream working to wake up

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing,
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin,
When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange,
Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,
People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away,
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me,
When I tell that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall,
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go,
People asking questions lost in confusion,
Well I tell them there's no problem, Only solutions,
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind,
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time,
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go. ~ John Winston Lennon
I just had to let it go... JL

It is not a time of revolution except that of a revolution of ideas. We cannot simply accuse government or others as being our enemies without realizing that these people who appear to be outside of ourselves reflect our own inner thoughts, fears and limitations. Our own desire to control others is reflected in the tyrannies around us. Also our unwillingness to change within is reflected outside of us as others who will attempt to control us. Those who have self-control within will not attract others to control them from without. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Feel thoughts of resistance and let it go... DL

"So hard to answer future's riddle when ahead seeming so far behind. So hard to laugh a child-like giggle when the tears start to torture my mind. So hard to shed the life of before to let my soul automatically soar. But I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, knock down all the roadblocks stumbling me, throw off all the shackles that are binding me down." ~ Carl Wilson & Jack Rieley (Long Promised Road: Beach Boys, Surf's Up 1971)
Feeling feelings and letting them go... DL

It cannot be translated as study either, because study is a concentrated effort to understand the meaning of the word, or words. ’Path’ is neither reading nor study, but something more. It is repeating joyously, so joyously that it penetrates to your very heart, so it becomes your breathing. It takes a lifetime, and that’s what is needed if you want to understand real books, books like Gurdjieff’s MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE MEN. ~ Osho (aka Rajneesh)
So much to learn, so little time...
Tuesday ~ July 26 • 2011
In most cases, your education — and the more education you have the more this may apply — has merely programmed and indoctrinated you. As a result, you are less able to truly think for yourself, and less able to recognize the truth. After all, Truth comes from within, not outside you. Just try to talk with the experts in all areas of science, psychology, medicine, and so on about alien abductions or UFOs. You will see a spirit of denial which forms an impenetrable barrier to the Truth; even watching video tapes of UFO sightings, witnessed and filmed by many different people in different locations (which is a very real phenomenon that occurs) does not penetrate their minds. The willful desire to remain ignorant effectively closes the mind. They do not want to know anything they have not been programmed with in their education; it does not fit within their paradigm, so it simply does not exist. If this is not living in total denial, what is? ~ G. K. Chesterson
Relax and enjoy the view from within... DL

So little time and so much to learn. Thank God we have eternity to discover all that is Reality, all that is the mystery quietly leading us to discover ourselves, our Beingness, our "I AM." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar

Whether through psychedelic short-cut or via the awesome self-discipline of Zen, the search is universal, if at times self-defeating and psychologically destructive. There is simply no energy left for doctrinal hairsplitting, or even for church-related social and political action. The search is the main thing. But it has to be narrowed to some kind of a view of revitalized structuring. At the same time, in the mind-boggling plurality of religious forums today, there is a chance for every man to expand his God-consciousness and pursue his quest even as if through a glass darkly. ~ Thane of Hawaii (Leap Into Sanity, 1971)
Be still and know that "I AM" God... Psalms 46:10

Important signs I read yesterday: One out of four people in this country is mentally unbalanced. Think of your 3 closest friends... if they seem okay, then you're the one. And if you sometimes feel a little useless, offended or depressed... Always remember that YOU were once the fastest and most victorious little sperm out of millions. Then there was the one which said: Sometimes I wonder... "Why is that frisbee getting bigger." ... and then it hits me. Oh yeah and of course there was this one: Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Sometimes the little things can solve the big problems... DL

The fabric of reality is woven through the process of our consciousness and it reflects what we understand our reality to be at that moment in time. Each time we expand our understanding of reality, the fabric changes, and so too our World, our Universe, our Reality. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Reality is always changing, if we are... DL
Thursday ~ July 21 • 2011
The pursuit of raising one's consciousness can only be achieved when one changes their focus from being good instead of bad to thinking straight rather than operating in a consciousness of duality. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Reality is One Mind interacting with its Self... DL

Life is full of surprises. Mostly because we know not who we are nor what it is that we project and what we attract. All in all it is called "sleep." ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Most of the time we pretend we are awake and then we sleep it off... DL

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. ~ Groucho Marx
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. ~ Mae West
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe. ~ Albert Einstein
Humor is seeing the irony we believe in that we don't want to let go of. ~ Derek Lamar
Women often want to make love to their fathers which is why they are always pissed at their boyfriends. ~ Big Daddy Royale

Most of the time we laugh and then we cry later... DL

I think that we may safely trust a good deal more than we do. We may waive just so much care of ourselves as we honestly bestow elsewhere. Nature is well adapted to our weakness as our strength. The incessant anxiety and strain of some is a well nigh incurable form of disease. We are made to exaggerate the importance of what work we do; and yet how much is not done by us! or, what if we had been taken sick? How vigilant we are! determined not to live by faith if we can avoid it; all the day long on the alert, at night we unwillingly say our prayers and commit ourselves to uncertainties. So thoroughly and sincerely are we compelled to live, reverencing our life, and denying the possibility of change. This is the only way, we say; but there are as many ways as there can be drawn radii from one centre. All change is a miracle to contemplate; but it is a miracle which is taking place every instant. Confucius said, “To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.” When one man has reduced a fact of the imagination to be a fact to his understanding, I foresee that all men will at length establish their lives on that basis. ~ Henry David Thoreau (Walden, or Life in the Woods)
Most of the time what we think we know is still a mystery... DL

I think that we may be on he verge of bankruptcy of the Soul. That is actually a good thing. Perhaps when that realization hits people will finally realize that there is something more than a giant flat screen TV and that everything that happens in their life is subject to their mind and their own doing. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Most of the time we run out of time... DL
Saturday ~ July 16 • 2011
Science fiction is a way of perceiving the future and in a way, by seeing the future we feel we are achieving a glimpse into "Higher Mind" and "Truth" based on the belief that things unfold incrementally and in an ascent rather than chaos or descent. But at the same time it is clear that "ancients" have often had extremely advanced awareness, ideas, and even civilizations and perhaps technologies we no longer understand. Much of what we even know about past civilizations is by their trash. What if there had been civilizations without trash. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Stretching the mind can sprain your angles... DL

True Masters are those who have chosen to make a life rather than a living. If a thing is obviously right, do it. Your perception of ultimate reality is more limited than you thought, and Truth is more unlimited than you can imagine. The more you are, the more you can become, and the more you can become, the more you can yet be. ~ Neale Donald Walsch (Meditations from Conversations With God: An Uncommon Dialogue,1997)
Listening... Perceiving... Understanding... Knowing...
Thursday ~ July 14 • 2011
The dialogue that is necessary of an inner dialogue. Unfortunately it is rather like taking a hearing test and you are not trained to know to what you should be listening for. Listening at all is an improvement of course. Sometimes one wakes up occasionally simply to ask themselves: "Why does that keep coming to mind?" Great. Go there. Ask that. Why "DOES" that keep coming to mind. And then continue that process. But be honest. Otherwise it is pointless because you will only encounter false information. Even if you think what you are hearing is true, it probably will only seem that way because you have previously convinced yourself it is. Start there and get back to me. * Smile.* ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Listening... a form of revelation... and torture... DL

The "The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings." ~ Lewis Carroll (The Walrus and The Carpenter)

Listening... and still wondering why... DL

There is much confusion about sexuality and whether or not someone is straight or gay or even bisexual and what is right, wrong, mentally sound, aberrant, how does one deal with this and who is to blame and is it an accident or predestined or the result of events in the childhood or karma... What is it about? The Truth about sexuality is that "Reality" is Androgynous but we are caught in a period of consciousness which operates under duality and thus what we do and think is affected by this divided consciousness just as the outpicturing of the universe appears to align itself with that mental attitude. We must begin to understand what androgyny is and how does that affect our thinking, our creativity, our world, our universe... our sense of God. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Giving and Receiving simultaneously is Reality... DL

Every Time I Open My Eyes

every time i open my eyes
i invite the world to take shape,
and every time the world takes shape
i’m invited to open my eyes
and see the world raw and naked
holding out its hand, calling me into itself
where i am taken into the transparency of things
and find myself transparent there
standing on the edge, looking down and in,
to the dark silent pool in which the world is cradled
and i’m cradled there, held
with all things and hold all things in myself
myself, not a thing in the world but this, here, seeing
in which the world opens, inviting and offering itself
and every time it is seen it dies
and in dying holds out its hand, again
asking to be taken in
and every time i take it in i too die
and in dying i’m known as this, here, seeing
every time i open my eyes

Obviously there is a lot of discussion about Quantum science and that is certainly reflected in the "Teachings" that we present. However I have heard a lot of discussions from scientists who have little to no understanding as to the ancient Teachings and how the principles which can change consciousness operate. It is in the understanding of Mind, Body and Soul that science plays a small part. Once one learns the principles of Quantum Metaphysics they will really grasp the essence of Quantum Mechanics but also so much more. The reflective cross-over is fascinating but truly the multiplied understanding of the esoteric Teachings will blow the doors off of sciences and open up the planet to incredible changes. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Thinking, Feeling and Being is Oneness... DL
Saturday ~ July 9 • 2011
Loneliness is a form of "abandonment" even if it is experienced only within our own sense of reality. If we feel that others have rejected us or turned their back on us our tendency is to feel rejection and this results in fear, then anger, then loneliness Loneliness is the emotional withdrawal we feel when we experience the loss of love and caring. We need others to affirm that we are "okay." This feeling comes from others who care about us which restores the wholeness back to our sense of self. Without this we tend to experience "self-destructive" feelings and actions resulting from the belief that there is something wrong with us and at some point, we start to fear and then believe that we do not deserve love and attention. Once this belief is established within our psyche, it becomes a "mind-set" which activates a pattern which is engaged in and also which attracts continuous experiences which affirm that we are right about feeling that we are not "worthy." These feelings are false but we have not yet come to realize this illusion and it becomes a large portion of our daily life. The solution is to relive those past memories and in light of understanding our misunderstanding we are able to let go of the false conclusion about ourselves and then realize the truth about how "worthy" we truly are to ourselves and others. Love is the healing process which is and always was within us. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Feeling one's own pain is the first step in healing... DL

At some point in your life you will probably "desire to know more." In this case it means that rather than running on automatic (drawing simply on the actions and reactions of the human robotic mindless functioning) you will desire to know who you are, know what reality, know what truth is, know why you are here and just what does your Universe mean to you. Let us know when that time comes. We'll be there. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
The life ahead is a better one... DL

Self Discovery is the process of realizing that you have been operating in an unreal Universe based on false information which you have accepted. In order to change your Universe, you must change the programming within yourself and you can do that by the process of self-discovery. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Reality is always what is actually True as opposed to the illusion we believe... DL

People are funny. They love "science fiction." People wish they could time travel so they could see the future. Some would like to go into the past. But few understand that with psychology you can go into the past and make psychological changes which will change the future. They not only do not understand it, they fear it. They want to go there without observing themselves but then once you remove yourself from the picture... you're not there. Self-observation is a technique of Nowness and Time-Travel. It is truly an adventure. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
The memory is a bookmark to our sense of self... DL

The Field began as a confidence trick. I persuaded my publishers to fund what was essentially a voyage without a compass... At a certain point I began to recognize, first with wonder and then alarm, that I had trespassed into dangerous new territory, a fledgling science in the very act of its creation. The scientific foundation that we had all believed in, on which all our confident assertions about ourselves and our place in the world presently rested, was disintegrating right in front of me. The book that I'd talked my way into writing was going to require no less than redefining our present concept of reality. ~ Lynne McTaggart (The Field: The Quest For The Secret Force of The Universe, 2008)
The day after independence is dependence on the Self... DL
Monday ~ July 4th • 2011
It is amazing how many "blocks" we have as human beings. We block our "True Self", we block our connection to God, we block our "perfect health", we block "infinity" and the ongoingness we are, and the list goes on and on including "Oneness" which links us all together as "One Mind." It is time to let go and begin unlocking the doors within as we integrate our "True Self" and become more open to the Infinite Reality which has always been there at our disposal. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Q.M.I.)
Freedom is the greatness of openness to celebrate... DL

Compared to what we ought to be we are half awake. ~ William James
Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing. ~ William James
There is but one cause of human failure. And that is man's lack of faith in his true Self. ~ William James
A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices. ~ William James

To be stuck in a pattern is to begin to realize that you are repeating something which is not natural but rather a repetitive habit based on some sort of belief systems within you and that it must be broken in order for you to see the "Truth" and to be set from free from that bondage. We trap ourselves by our beliefs and because we fall for these traps it prevents us from being liberated. Sometimes we like these restraints because then we do not have to suffer the outcome of failure but alas, even the possibility of failure is within our minds. Our true success is to see ourselves and to be set free from the feelings and ideas we use to hold ourselves in limbo. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I shake loose the invisible bonds which hold me and move forward... DL
Friday ~ July 1 • 2011
The journey of a lifetime to discover your self as you ponder the universal question of "Who am I?", or "What am I here for?" or "Is there a God?" and others should never be ignored or denied but one should allow themselves to follow them wherever they are taken. This is a journey of a lifetime which is more thrilling and rewarding than any white water rapids, running marathon, tennis tournament, vacation on a tropical island or... or... the list goes on. You will never be disappointed if you sincerely pursue serious personal questions like these and if you ignore them it could be the biggest mistake of your life. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
I ask and I discover... DL

Science IS NOT ideology and MIND SCIENCE is not a fabricated term to deceive. This is important for people, potential students, and other metaphysical researchers to understand. The "science" of metaphysical truth, as understood and taught by Q.M.I. Quantum Metaphysics Institute and myself is based on sound mathematics and understanding to the highest degree in terms of "Absolutes" and a "closed system" of understanding which covers all areas of the Universe and "beyond" as it applies to the ontological system that governs what we call "reality." There is a push today to mix science and politics and philosophy and various ideologies and also to retreat from psychological and ontological realities which could prevent a natural upward progress of understanding and realization from taking place. We must continue to work toward knowing "Truth" despite personal prejudice and strive to come to a knowingness of Reality which ultimately is in the best interest of all of humankind. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar, Ph.D., D.D.
