...The true master has a beginner's mind. S. Suzuki spoke well about this in his "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind." "The goal of practice is always to keep our beginner's mind... if your mind is empty, it is always read for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few." The master who is full of his ego and declares himself an expert has stopped growing. He is ready to be replaced. The disciple needs to run away from such a person. Socrates said, "One thing I know, that I know nothing!" This is probably a slight exaggeration, but it is a good attitude to have if the world applauds you and your disciples adore you. It is beneficial for a master to be laughed at once in a while. Lao Tse wrote: "The Tao would not be Tao if it were not laughed at." ~ Basil Gala, Ph. D. (The God Connection: Reflections On Religion And Its Aberrations)
Still crazy after all these years... Paul Simon

Without the foundation of reason, inquiry of any kind is ephemeral. Curiosity without order and direction is short-lived and purposeless. Consequently, spiritual inquiry is never mere curiosity but is the continuous search in the world for the purpose and meaning of life itself. ~ Genevieve Burnell (The Golden Thread of Reality: The Search For Truth And The Emergence Of The Universal Pattern)
Actually speaking, if God is at all, He must be Absolute Truth -- that is, Absolute Being -- Reality Itself. Hence His existence would be simple self-evidence; and to say, "God is," would be an undeniable statement of truth. ~ Genevieve Burnell (The Golden Thread of Reality: The Search For Truth And The Emergence Of The Universal Pattern)

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. --Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
Go to the truth beyond the mind. Love is the bridge. --Stephen Levine
Stand so still that the movement of the heart beats a rhythm which is the pulse of a new day yet to come. Feel the joy of knowing that life is more to be discovered: time to learn, time to let go. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Light... Love... Learn

Our mental training should consist first in bringing to our attention the most positive words we are capable of understanding, as being a pat of our relationship with the Infinite. In the first lesson of the Science of Supply we are told to fill all the vacant places around us with the Presence of God. This is done by the training I have mentioned. Thus life can be changed from a dreary routine of tasks to be done, to a game that calls for alertness, that we may not miss a trick. Florence Scovel Shinn has struck upon this idea in a most pleasing way in her book, "The Game Of Life and How To Play It." She outlines to a certain extent a manner of rebuilding with positive thought when negation appears. This is what is meant by "filling the vacant places." ~ Eloi-Sun (Old Wine In New Bottles, 1936)
Unleash the affirmations of that which has always been true ~ D.L.

It is proposed that the widespread and pervasive distinctions between people (race, nation, family, profession, etc., etc.) which are now preventing mankind from working together for the common good, and indeed, even for survival, have one of the key factors of their origin in a kind of thought that treats things as inherently divided, disconnected, and "broken up" into yet smaller constituent parts. Each part is considered to be essentially independent and self-existent. ~ David Bohm (Wholeness and the Implicate Order)
The notion that all these fragments is separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today. Thus, as is now well known, this way of life has brought about pollution, destruction of the balance of nature, over-population, world-wide economic and political disorder and the creation of an overall environment that is neither physically nor mentally healthy for most of the people who live in it. Individually there has developed a widespread feeling of helplessness and despair, in the face of what seems to be an overwhelming mass of disparate social forces, going beyond the control and even the comprehension of the human beings who are caught up in it. ~ David Bohm (Wholeness and the Implicate Order, 1980)
All is One and One is All, Infinite, Eternal and everpresent as the One Mind reading this now

If you would demonstrate, attain, manifest, greater good in your mind, body, and affairs, take time to speak aloud the word of Truth. Speak the word of wisdom, wholeness, harmony. Speak it aloud in the privacy of your own room or home until the air vibrates with the divine ideas contained within it! If it is greater wisdom and understanding you desire, declare aloud, in a firm but gentle and confident manner: "Let there be light. Let the clear light of God's day shine through my mind!" If you are in need of healing, decree: "Every cell of my body is indelibly stamped with a clear picture of radiant life. It now manifests that life!" If you seem to lack any good thing, affirm, "God is my unfailing, enduring, exhaustless supply." ~ Mary L. Kupferle (God Never Fails, 1958 Unity)
There is a knowing in speaking the word which connects one to the Higher Source

To the minister religion means proving there is a God in the church. To the Teacher spirituality means proving there is a God within. To the minister religion means there are things you have to become to enter into paradise. To the Teacher spirituality means there are things about yourself you must let go of to have heaven revealed. To the minister religion means faith in what someone else has said is your key to acceptance. To the Teacher spirituality means knowing what is so will set you free. To the minister religion means believing more in the evilness of Satan than in the goodness of God. To the Teacher spirituality means unfolding God within to realize that evil is the illusion of duality. To the minister religion means that good and evil are eternal opposites forever in battle. To the Teacher spirituality means that evil is not seeing the whole truth and that goodness is all there is. Religion tries to keep God in a building where the shadows interfere with the unlimited reality of God. Spirituality must be open to God being all there is and able to even use shadows to direct them to the Light. ~ Dr. Derek Lamar
Religion introduces you to God, and spirituality leads you the rest of the way

"Re-identification" is an ongoing process. Basically, I take a personal issue and work it through a process wherein I clarify my present identity as a "thing" which can have a problem. Once clarified, then I can give up this identity. Immediately thereafter, I re-identify myself as consciousness. This is a big step toward liberation. Consciousness is my True Self. As consciousness I am a non-physical mind-substance, whole, complete, ever present, undivided, changeless, dimensionless.
The process of re-identification is a great transformational pathway available to anyone and everyone. Consciousness is who you are back and behind all the roles you play. It is a gracious presence within you. It provides every experience in your life. If your consciousness is filled with fear because you have been taught to fear and to believe in the worst, then you will see fearful things around you.
As consciousness I am connected to all people, even animals and plants. Consciousness is something all indigenous people have understood for tens of thousands of years and more, though they used different words to talk about it. I propose that true liberation is not about destroying evil out there. It is about confronting and re-identifying evil within us. Ontology gives us a way to do this without blaming ourselves. The link is Consciousness. Find that key within yourself. You are Consciousness. Consciousness is a power that you must draw upon to see your way through these difficult times. ~ Heather Williams, H.W., M. (Drawing Together)
Of the many roles I play in life, what I AM is Consciousness which is not of the many roles I play

"Every world religion is full of differing sects. All of these have their psychological interpretation. There is another important class of religio-philosophical movements of modern times which demands special attention. Those religious movements referred to as evangelism make their appeal almost entirely to the emotions. They generally misinterpret their own emotional outbursts as the work of the divine spirit. They believe and pray and exhort, and read the Bible and sing. They seldom think. They have faith. But there is another class which makes its appeal more directly to the intellect, and it seeks substantiation from science. Among them may be mentioned Max Heindel, Rudolph Steiner, Ouspensky, Krishnamurti, Vivekananda and Hermann Keiserling. These men all endeavor to inculcate some aspect of truth, seeking reality in the spiritual nature of man and the universe, while at the same time they regard the physical world as more or less illusory. The ultimate appeal of such movements is to spirit, instead of matter, to an enlightened understanding, rather than to religious emotions. ~ Max Freedom Long (The Path of The Masters, 1939)
The goal of the WORK is not only the healing of body and mind, or social and economic tangles, but a restoration of the lost knowledge of a way of life such as was taught not only by the kahunas, but by Jesus, and by many great initiates of the past under an ancient code of secrecy. With the breaking of this code the "True Light" can be given to the world, to be known and used by all who have "eyes to see and ears to hear." ~ Max Freedom Long (The Secret Science at Work, 1953)

"Have you ever considered how dreadful it would be if our lives had no appointed end but went on forever? Can you imagine that as far as the eye can see into the future we should remain enmeshed in the desires and troubles of this life and that all the ensuing envy, hatred and malice, our own and other people's, should continue to pile up undiminished? If you have ever considered how intolerable the burden of our life would be without the understood certainty that it has an appointed end, you know that death comes to all, even the most fortunate, not as an enemy but as a deliverance." ~ Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) Reverence for Life
"The day of death is when two worlds meet with a kiss: this world going out, the future world coming in." ~ The Talmud
"Death is the twinkling of the eye as we move from one room into another surprised to find how similar the next room is, luring us, haunting us, seducing us with its temptations and causing us to wonder why we didn't look at the last room with such wonder and awe." ~ Derek Lamar
"Mortality is the realization that only truth can continue forever and eventually the nonsense must end and Reality begin" ~ Derek Lamar
Truth continues as illusion disolves...

...pearls can be worn on the outside
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes. ~ Proust
You must be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Gandhi
It takes a lifetime to begin to treasure creation and then we have to start over. ~ Derek Lamar
Skeptism is healthy and Curiosity is natural and Openness is well adjusted and to know when to do what is called enlightened. ~ Derek Lamar
There are treasures beyond compare in the ocean. If you seek safety stay ashore. ~ Sufi saying
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. ~ Carl Jung
...while others are being born on the inside
Tuesday ~ June 19, 2012
We should remember that the right to exercise freedom of will was given to man in the beginning, according to Genesis, and that will should ways be given its original power and liberty. It is possible, however, for man so to identify his consciousness with Divine Mind that he is moved in every thought and act by that Mind. Jesus attained this unity; when He realized that He was willing not in the personal but in the divine, He said: "Not my will, but thine, be done." ~ Charles Fillmore (The Twelve Powers of Man, 1930)
Thy Will is My Will for Oneness is True Reality

I See
I look, through time, troubled eyes and weary minds and I see, I see.
I feel, the presence of a mind not so far away and I do, I do.
I know, it is me merely acting out a fantasy as you, as you.
The blame, I held for you with my misery is gone, it is gone.
We met, on strange ground in a time where there was so much to see, to see.
And now, I smile and at times at least once in awhile I see, I see.

"All words of truth are alive with an invisible Energy which has power to work miracles. The truth is mighty to accomplish, but in order to do so it must be spoken into activity, it must be put into words. The same Christ who said, 'I am the Life,' said also, 'I am the Truth.' Life, Truth, Christ, are one. The words of truth you and I speak in the name and spirit of the Master, become his words, full of life and health. Such words set into motion the invisible Energy which accomplishes, and which does not accomplish when quiescent." ~ H. Emilie Cady (God: A Present Help, 1908)
The Energy continues...

When the compulsive striving away from the NOW ceases, the joy of Being flows into everything you do. The moment your attention turns to the NOW you feel a presence, a stillness, a peace. You no longer depend on the future for fulfillment and satisfaction -- you don't look for salvation. Therefore you are not attached to the results. Neither failure nor success has the power to change your inner state of Being. You have found the life underneath your life situation. In the absence of psychological time, your sense of self is derived from Being not from your personal past. ~ Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now)
Don't look back... for a change
Thursday ~ June 14, 2012
The difference between today and tomorrow is a Quantum Leap! We are experiencing the worlds collide. It is a paradigm shift and this shift is an awakening within our consciousness. Not an awakening as earthlings. We are not earthlings. We are consciousness. Our deathist mindset with its self defeating habit patterns of live and let die, kill and be killed, birth and death, as we compulsively try to destroy others in an attempt to kill ourselves in so many way is but a computer loop which continues to operate. We finally have managed through our science to come up with nuclear warfare, chemical warfare and biological warfare. Each capable of destroying mankind how many times over? A fitting bumper sticker would be: "Man Is Dead; Get A Life!" ~ Dr. Derek Lamar (Man Is Dead)
Unfoldment continues...
Wednesday ~ June 13, 2012
If life is not ordered, then death itself has no order, and both, with everything between, are merely accidental. The great Einstein, dubbed an atheist, was once asked by an adolescent, "Why is it, Dr. Einstein, that you do not believe in God?" This great scientist replied with a smile, "I believe in an orderly process, and if you choose to call this God, I will not argue." As we understand this process, and so fit into it, so do we seem to find the inner tranquillity that passes for happiness. In the dawn of the Aquarian Age, a time not only for outer but inner space, there is a growing feeling that we are on the verge of great happenings. ~ Jess Stearn (The Miracle Workers: America's Psychic Consultants)
To read minds is to know yourself; there is One Mind
Tuesday ~ June 12, 2012
The Mind of God is manifesting in my life. The Spirit within me is projecting Itself into my experience. Divine Intelligence is acting in my affairs. Everything that I do, say or think is governed by this Intelligence. The Power which creates and sustains everything is now creating everything necessary to my happiness. The Spirit within me is God. The Living Spirit Almighty is within me now. Spirit is the sustaining Principle of my life. I open my mind to Its influx. I open my consciousness to Its inflowing. ~ Ernest Holmes (This Thing Called You, 1948)
I open my mind to the Reality I AM
Monday ~ June 11, 2012
In the more arcane studies of both Eastern and Western mysticism, it has been felt for a long time that each individuation, each being, is androgynous, or both male and female. The ancient Chinese symbol of Yin-Yang describes there being a seed of the feminine in the masculine, and a see of the masculine in the feminine. Carl Jung refers to these as the animus, (the man within woman), and the anima (the woman within man). Not only is there a seed of the masculine in the feminine, and vice-versa, but the whole is composed equally of both. Just as there is an equal positive and negative current in electricity, or in an atom. So it is with each of us. ~ Thane Walker (Leap Into Sanity)
As Above, So Below ~ As Within, As Without
As Male, As Female, As One: Androgynous

It is important to perceive Truth in all things and in all ways. All of us usually come through a particular path and within that teaching there is often a jargon or slang or a specific manner of communicating and using certain words or phrases and ways of interpreting the appearances going on in our "world". But we must expand ourselves, our consciousness and learn as many ways of saying God, Principle, Consciousness, Being, Mind... Infinite Mind, Divine Mind, Truth, Yahweh, I AM... I AM That I AM, the Father, the Word, the Logos, Higher Self, SELF. And in all that we perceive we can begin to see Truth or God all around us and also enjoy the next level of symbolism within the appearances of things in our world. I see a cat and recognize it as an expression of the "unconscious mind" or a bird and seeing it as a symbol of "higher thoughts" or "Higher Mind". I look upon tree and realize it represents "knowledge" or a body of water and see it in many ways: as the "collective unconscious", the "sea of creation", Spirit, birth, emotion. As we begin to perceive our thoughts about us in symbolic ways it will make it easier to then see the Truth which is all around us... and know that what is around us is actually within us. It is within us because it is "our mind"... "my mind"... MIND. ~ Derek Lamar, mystic
I See, I AM...

Nothing but the whole stands alone. ~ Nancy Lamar (metaphysician)
There is an art of listening. To be able really to listen, one should abandon or put aside all prejudices, preformulations and daily activities . . . But unfortunately most of us listen through a screen of resistance. We are screened with prejudices, whether religious or spiritual, psychological or scientific; or with our daily worries, desires and fears. And with these for a screen, we listen. Therefore, we listen really to our own noise, our own sound, not to what is being said. It is extremely difficult to put aside our training, our prejudices, our inclination, our resistance, and, reaching beyond the verbal expression, to listen so that we understand instantaneously. ~ J. Krishnamurti (The First and Last Freedom)
Listen to the whispers of the wise voice within
Friday ~ June 8, 2012
In good works, you serve many people. The whole life of Christ instructs us in this matter, and the lives of his saints as well, ll of whom he sent out into the world to teach the Many the one truth. St. Paul said to Timothy: "Beloved, preach the word!" Did he mean the audible word that beats the air? Certainly not! He referred to the inborn, secret word that lies hidden in the soul. It was of this he preached, so that it might instruct the faculties of people and nourish them, an so that the behavior of men serve the need of his neighbor It should be in the thoughts, the mind, and the will. It should be shine through your deeds. As Christ said: "Let your light so shine before men!" He was thinking of people who care only for the contemplative life and not for the practice of virtue, who say that they have no need for this, for they have got beyond it. Christ did not include such people when he said: "Some seed fell in good ground and brought forth fruit an hundredfold." But he did refer to them when he spoke of "the tree that does not bear fruit and which shall be hewn down." ~ Meister Eckhart (Walter T. Stace, editor of The Teachings of the Mystics, 1960)
Developing the Truth Within and experiencing its flow
Thursday ~ June 7, 2012
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself. - Abraham H. Maslow
Mankind looks around to discover reality, the world, God. He looks at everything. Finally he glances down and sees his own feet and realizes that he has neglected himself. Thus it is one's self which is the last thing mankind looks at in discovery of Truth. - Dr. Derek Lamar
God is right there in front of you... in the mirror
Wednesday ~ June 6, 2012
Close your eyes and forget your material surroundings. Place yourself in a comfortable position and "let go" of your body, to relieve it of all tension. When you are fully relaxed, with your eyes closed, you will be able to find the substance of Ideas within your consciousness. Do not think of your consciousness as the human brain. Think of your consciousness as the Divine Mind, filling all place. ~ Alexander Keene (3 Steps To Heaven, 1940)
Think about it, if you don't mind
Tuesday ~ June 5, 2012
There is a great deal of data that says an unresolved relationship with her mother sets a woman's mind in certain nonautonomous patterns, encloses her in fear of certain experiences, often stops her from going after wants, keeps her from taking from it the gratification she needs. ~ Nancy Friday (My Mother My Self, 1977)
Connections, reflections are a reprise of the mind returning to its self for confirmation... DL
Monday ~ June 4, 2012
The emerging new image of the human being is in large part a result of a movement under way to shift from preoccupation with the separation of reality into parts to an increased awareness of the essential unity of all reality. I believe we will move even beyond a sense of unity to the realization that reality is actually synergetic in nature. ~ L. Robert Keck (The Spirit of Synergy)
To cultivate one's soul is then the quest that will back up the skills of the eyes, the ears, the hands and the body with the synergetic power of the mind and ultimately will cast aside the cages of separateness. Separateness is a peculiar invention of man and it is a menace to his position within the evolving universe...... Each of us is a universal man or woman because we are of the universe. ~ Paolo Soleri, Italian architect (The Bridge Between Matter and Spirit Is Matter Becoming Spirit
I AM ONE with all that I see, because all I see is me... DL
Sunday ~ June 3, 2012
We are an emergent species coming out of and evolving from Homo sapiens, and we may be a whole set of sub species within Homo sapiens, psychologically different; slightly different. But the type that I'm speaking of is a type, a species that in my understanding has not fully been expressed and come to maturity yet on earth.
The early versions of what I'm calling the universal human, I think were among the great founders of the world religions. They emerged starting around 5,000 years ago in Egypt, India, Israel and Greece. Buddha and Jesus were examples. These began to show us a template of the potential of this emerging human. ~ Barbara Marx Hubbard
The emergence of 21st century mind is upon us, drawn by our intention to know our Self... DL

These mysterious and indescribably complex processes (functions of the human body) are controlled and directed by the subconscious mind. Modern medical science stands in awe of the wisdom and power displayed in these processes. It is in contemplating the physiologic and glandular processes of the human body that we find our greatest supporting data for the assumption that the subconscious area of mind has at its disposal infinite wisdom and power. In the words of the Psalmist, we, indeed, are "fearfully and wonderfully made." ~ John K. Williams (The Wisdom of Your Subconscious Mind, 1964)
Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream ~ Lennon / McCartney
Friday ~ June 1, 2012
If there is hope, or a fervent belief, Krishnamurti is right in saying that it should be challenged and tested with the question, "Why do you want to believe that? Is it because you are afraid of dying, of coming to an end? Is this identification with the cosmic Self the last desperate resort of your ego to continue its game?" Indeed, if this Supreme Identity is, for me, a belief to which I am clinging, I am in total self-contradiction. Not only is there no sense in clinging to what I am; the very act of clinging also implies that I do not really know that I am it! Such belief is merely doubt dressed up. The final meaning of negative theology, of knowing God by unknowing, of the abandonment of idols both sensible and conceptual, is that ultimate faith is not in or upon anything at all. It is complete letting go. ~ Alan Watts (Beyond Theology / The Gospel According To Zen)
