Conversation regarding Grace vs Works

"The young Hawaiian boy went before the great Kahuna priest and asked, 'How can I please the gods?' The Kahuna priest turned toward the site of the ancient volcano and said 'You must walk through the fire. If you pass from one side to the other you will indeed come out whole.' The young Hawaiian was puzzled and asked 'How could this be? What is the magic which would make me whole?' The Kahuna looked deep into his eyes and said 'The fire will burn away all doubt. When you emerge on the other side nothing can hurt you. You will know you always have been whole.'" ~ Richard Kula

Conversation regarding Grace vs Works

"Anyway, in esoteric terms.... Grace would be the understanding that you need not do anything to achieve spiritual blessings because you already have them if you but recognize that you are the Truth and that you are Mind and that you are God. And the Works aspect in esoteric terms would be as the Fourth Way phrase of doing "the work" is the process of one's mind unfolding where they do their own inner work to reveal the process and recognition of spiritual blessings which already exist by letting go of error and accepting that Truth and Mind and God. Thus the two, as it would be, both work together and that Grace and Works express the ongoing process of the acceptance of the Self. ~ Derek Lamar

"A true story. His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from nearby bog. He droppped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death. The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved. "I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son." "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer said, waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked. "Yes" the farmer replied proudly. "I'll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good education. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll grow to a man you can be proud of." And that he did. In time, Farmer Fleming's son graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin. Years afterward, the nobleman's son was stricken with pneumonia. What saved him? Penicillin. The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.

"Do not think that the end is near simply because this is what you fear you feel. What you are sensing is change and the end of one life and the beginning of a new self emerging. Often what appears in our fears is the opposite of what is actually occurring. Opposites often have the ability to disguise themselves as friends when they are our enemies and enemies when they are our friends depending on how clear we are about ourselves. Be awake. Do not make quick judgments of yourself or others. For others simply reflect you and you simply reflect a God you often do not let yourself see." ~ Derek Lamar

"Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe. He plunged beneath the material surface of things, and found the spiritual cause." ~ Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) Science and Health
"Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force; that thoughts rule the world." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) Progress of Culture
"Faith is a kind of winged intellect. The great workmen of history have been men who believed like giants." ~ Charles H. Parkhurst (1842-1933) Sermons
"When the great comes by, as always there are angels walking in the earth." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) Aristocracy

"If you mean to act nobly and seek to know the best things God has put within reach of men, you must learn to fix your mind on that end, and not on what will happen to you because of it." ~ George Eliot (1819-1880) Romola

Sunday July 25th

"I AM all - God is the only Life here. The only Life there. God is the only Mind here - the only Mind there. God is the only Individuality here - the only Individuality there. God is the only manifestation of form here - the only manifestation of form there. No I, but the One I, exists." ~ Thane of Hawaii (Thane Walker, Fourth Way Master)

"The future of memory will evidence many surprising occurrences. New discoveries in molecular biology, genetics, neurosurgery, organ transplantation, pharmacology, and computer technology are beginning to assault the province of memory. Startling innovations will be the result. One of the most exciting discoveries in the future of memory will be the literal acceptance of the fact that every human being possesses memories spanning the entire evolutionary history of man. At conception every person is quite 'ancient' in terms of an unending memory span." ~ Dr. Douglas Galias, D.C., H.W., M. (Institute of Advanced Thinking)

"With a strong lens the sun's rays can ignite wood. Yoga practice, similarly, so concentrates the mind that the curtain of doubt and uncertainty is burned away, and the light of inner truth becomes manifested." ~ Paramhansa Yogananda

"The day is white and the night is black and yet this duality seems separate and in opposition. Yet if both the play of light and shadows did not dance through time, space and change, we would see nothing at all." ~ Derek Lamar

"Who is God.....Close your eyes and imagine that all that is is and it is within you even though you may think it doesn't, it still does and you will remember it all eventually and then you will know that just for a blink in the moment of time you gave yourself to yourself and in that moment of wanting to know yourself there was that other part of yourself waiting to receive yourself that was all knowing and crash ... the two become one and you know you are ONE and you are all there is.... this is GOD.... You are GOD. And this voice you hear as email you recognize as your own. *smile* And as you look in the mirror you discover it is not so much the opposite but rather the perfect fit which makes the ongoingness of all that is possible.
Who is Buddha..... Buddha was a man who discovered himself and realized that all that is is and it is within you even though you may think it doesn't, it still does and you will remember it all eventually and then you will know that just for a blink in the moment of time you gave yourself to yourself and in that moment of wanting to know yourself there was that other part of yourself waiting to receive yourself that was all knowing and crash ... the two become one and you know you are ONE and you are all there is.... this is GOD.... You are GOD. And this voice you hear as email you recognize as your own. *smile* And as you look in the mirror you discover it is not so much the opposite but rather the perfect fit which makes the ongoingness of all that is possible.
Can the East and the West come to a simple term place that is fully in agreement? Well, the east is where the west ends and the west ends where the east begins.... but these are mirrors of the mind... in other words if you cannot figure it out one way we must use another, but if we do not put the two together we will never see the whole picture. If we never see the whole picture we will have duality and this division will turn infinity into finiteness, and it will turn wholeness into dis-ease and agreement will become conflict and all that is not joined to itself is thus un-fulfilled and makes for chaos. The order is always there in back of the appearances but we stay lost in the dream until we see the wholeness of it all. We must realize that all that is is and it is within you even though you may think it doesn't, it still does and you will remember it all eventually and then you will know that just for a blink in the moment of time you gave yourself to yourself and in that moment of wanting to know yourself there was that other part of yourself waiting to receive yourself that was all knowing and crash ... the two become one and you know you are ONE and you are all there is.... this is GOD.... You are GOD. And this voice you hear as email you recognize as your own. *smile* And as you look in the mirror you discover it is not so much the opposite but rather the perfect fit which makes the ongoingness of all that is possible." ~ Derek Lamar

I Am The Good Shepherd (A Metaphysical Interpretation of the 23rd Psalm)

"I AM that I Am, my own True Self, all my needs are fulfilled. My body is at rest, my mind is at peace, and my soul is stronger still. I face the changes that have haunted me now, with strength and confidence and zeal. I am assured that nothing can harm me now, since nothing that is evil is real. The Truth I am giving shallow follow with blessings, unfolding me in return. Living eternally in the hands of God: I hold myself ever so firm." ~ © Copyright 1985 Derek Lamar

The Lord's Prayer (A Metaphysical Interpretation)

"Our Father, from where our thoughts emerge, in the highest and the lowest, I AM ALL; The Source of what I desire to be: all my problems solved. Nothing I owe can ever be real unless it is already paid. I deliver myself into the light of Truth: the True Self that never will fade. For Thine is mine and the Kingdom is True: the Power I am standing in. The Glory of all that I ever will be, I am free, forever, amen." ~ © Copyright 1985 Derek Lamar

Sunday July 18th

"One must work to go beyond himself but know that he will only discover more of himself. One must work to discover himself but know that in doing so he has gone beyond himself. As one expands their consciousness they become more of who they are, and as one becomes more of who they are they have expanded their consciousness. One must reach out into the Spirit of the Cosmos and honor the higher understanding from which all springs and gain the insight to see that it is reflected already in everything around him." ~ Derek Lamar

"I tripped on a cloud and fell eight miles high, tore my mind on a jagged sky, I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in." ~ Kenny Rogers (First Edition, 1967)

"Even in our worst moments of pain can we not cry out I AM? Even those who think they wish to die really do not wish to die, they wish to end the pain. No one really wants to not exist. To not exist is the biggest lie that there is for all there really is in Reality is Infinite Existence. Beingness is being which is to be, that is, to is, as it were. So to isn't just isn't possible. Once you realize you exist you must recognize that you always have existed and always will. It may be difficult to plot a course as to what the illusion of past and future will be but the Truth is you ALWAYS will be. You cannot subtract yourself from the Infinite lest the infinite become less then infinite in which case it would become finite... this being the case the universe would suddenly not exist. Non Being and Being do not exist together in reality, only in theory to conclude that Being is ALL THERE IS." ~ Derek Lamar

Beingness continues...

Thursday July 15th

"I was told the other day that the member of a certain metaphysical group said, 'Well, I hear that you people are saying you are God. I can't go for that.' And yet the person who made that statement is the member of a church that is founded on the fundamental Truth that God is All and in all. This particular individual has taken the first step, but he has not reached the second step of self-identification with God. If God is all, then since I exist, I am part of that all. In the beginning God had only Himself to make things out of so we must be a part of God, for there was nothing else out of which to create us." ~ Robert Caswell (New Horizons, 1947)

Allness continues...

Wednesday July 14th

"Not the faraway heaven after death, when a whole lifetime has been spent in sorrow and trouble, but the 'kingdom of heaven within you,' here, now, today. The mortal, human, earth part of you has not sorrow which cannot be healed, overcome, wiped out at once and forever by this ever indwelling Divine Spirit." ~ H. Emilie Cady (How I Used Truth, 1916)

Nowness continues...

Tuesday July 13th

"Creation, you discover, is simply the flow of consciousness. So as you rest in this center of the creative impulse, you feel the essence of the Consciousness of Creation. You feel what is called Love, that pure statement of simply being the totality of all that you are. You feel the essence of Light that is the movement of that energy of Love flowing out from the very center of existence into and as all creation. You feel the attributes of that creative center of existence ­ of pure harmony, pure balance, absolute truth, infinite intelligence, abundance and opulence of existence. You feel the Life pulse that is the form and substance of manifestation that emanates and energizes all creation along the continuum of consciousness. " ~ John and Cheryl of the Sacred Wind

"In our seeking and searching for God, we are suffering from the same kind of insanity, because we have never left our Father's house. When we search for the Presence and the Power of God to dissolve our discords and inharmonies, we are in a state of humanhood as unnatural as the fish seeking the ocean! As long as we seek for a God or a Truth or a treatment or a prayer to relieve us of our problems, just that long will our problems remain with us. We will continue to be overwhelmed with the discords and inharmonies of this world until we achieve this spiritual discernment:

'I am already in he secret place of the Most High. I am living and moving and having my being in God, and I am about my Father's business.'" ~ Joel Goldsmith

Saturday July 10th

"Why is it painful to know that all is mind and that is all one is? Is it because one is all alone or because one is responsible for everything they know. Most people do not understand the grandeur that is God but they believe in the evil which is loose in the world, so when they are confronted without someone else to blame, they would rather not exist at all." - Derek Lamar

"And when all of my tears turn into the love from which I direct all my thoughts, I have ascended." - Derek Lamar

Completeness continues...

Friday July 9th

"When we look around us and see so many great things that mankind has created just in terms of communication: radios, telephones, tv's, VCR's, Stereos, CD players, tape decks, and then we self observe and discover that we so often use these devices as diversions, escapes, cover-ups, walls, hiding places, weapons to block out thoughts within our minds which we do not want to think about, then we must ask ourselves what is it that we have done? Compare this to the mystical statement of 'be still and know that I AM God.' In the quiet solitudes we might hear our own screams but we must listen to them. We cannot cover them up and pretend that they are not there. Because those are the voices which overlay the words of God. If we cover up God with our pain, then how much more covered up is the Divine within us when we in turn cover our anguish as well." - Derek Lamar

"And when all of my voices become silent and wait to hear the sound of the universe, I have ascended." - Derek Lamar

"It seems that Al Gore in all manner of politics attempted to do some Bible banging which is a dangerous thing to do in the climate at hand. You can't really win at that sort of thing so enough said there. But he made a statement as to his favorite Bible verse and he said it was John 16:3. Now everyone who halfway knew the Bible realized that he meant John 3:16, that old safe standard of "God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son...." but what could be the unconscious expression of this error? Could something Freudian be found in the unchosen words he stumbled over.... in hindsight it is ironic that in fact, John 16:3 says: 'They will do these things because they have never known either the Father or myself.' I will leave the conclusions to you." ~ Richard Kula
"All is revealed to be denied." - M (composer of Pop Music)

Alan Watts answers how you learn who you are: "Its like waking up from a dream...after a while one's experience tends to have a "haven't we been here before feeling"? ....going round and round...and round.....and then you begin wondering...... where am I going?....and to answer that question you have to try and figure out what you want...and so I went onto that very thoroughly....what do I want to happen?....and of course as soon as you ask yourself that you begin to fantasize....and our amazing technology is of course an expression of human desire...desire for power .....for what we want to achieve...so I simply set myself to think through how far we could go....and so I soon found myself at a great push-button place where I had a fantastic mechanism with buttons available for every conceivable thing I could wish..so I spent quite a bit of time playing with those...and science fiction wasn't in it! (AW laughter) you know...you go "going" like that (pushing a button) and there is Cleopatra...you know all set and ready to go!.....(audience laughter) "going" (makes the noise) oh! there is Marilyn Monroe!...and so on you know...and press this button....you get symphonic music...in 4 channel sound!..16 channel sound...you know anything all possible pleasures are available...and when you know its like everybody's dream of the Sultan in the Palace....you suddenly notice there's a button labeled "surprise!" you push that........and here we are...here now! (lots of laughter)

Monday July 5th

"The mind of the 21st century will change everything that we know in terms of how we deal with our universe, our world and ourselves. Technology will change clearly, but it is all of the things we take for granted which will alter the course of everyone's life. The main thrust of all of this changed will issue forth from the fact that taking responsibility for one's own awareness will be as drastic an event as calling 6 a 3 or blue yellow. The conclusions formed from this new perspective will build a mental highway which will lead the planet back to its spiritual roots in eternity." - Derek Lamar

Revelation continues...

Sunday July 4th

"Freedom is the opportunity, not to do what ever you want, but to be whoever you are. Many people believe that if allowed to do whatever they want they will eventually stumble on to who they are, but more creativity has emerged through people who have found themselves in disciplined circumstances than in an empty vacuum. So with this freedom we have, if you want to discover who you are, you should think about engaging in a spiritual discipline of some sort as an aid to finding out who you are." - Derek Lamar

Discipline continues...

Saturday July 3rd

"Why wait for the arrival of Divinity when it is waiting within to come forth. Who is it that will tap you on the shoulder and say you are one of the chosen to know the secrets of the ages. When will you realize that this is the time and your time is now. The only thing which has been holding you back is your lack of belief in the reality of who you are. You simply must step outside of that self which says you are not sure and step into that self of you which knows that this is it. You will not wait any longer while spiritual insight passes you by. This is your time and you are willing to make the effort needed to claim the inheritance which has always been yours. Stand up and accept this gift. It belongs to you." - Derek Lamar

Divinity continues...

Friday July 2nd

"Grace is the way in which God manifests in a world still plagued with a mass of consciousness that believes in a war between two powers ­ good and evil ­ instead of living in the realization that there is never anything existing other than the ONE ­ GOD ­ The I that I AM. One of the purposes of frequent meditations is to remind oneself to live by Grace and not by any human standards. But another purpose is to develop the interior stillness within which the intuitions of Grace can be discerned or perceived or recognized. Otherwise one cannot be living the will of God and is left in a darkness where he can do no other than the will of man because he does not meditate enough to perceive beyond that. " - Ben Gilberti

Intuition continues...

Thursday July 1st

"And yet to touch the invisible and to pass right through, sensing infinity and timelessness, discovering a wall becoming a window and then appearing a door, to pass right through in search of something more, in this I find myself as my flesh becomes the wind, all anthropomorphic senses gone before they are sent, I am that formless force which knows no shape or form, I am that energy undying and unborn, that illusive changing paradigm to be, to do, to know, to feel, to remember, to sense, to reveal, to express, to flow, I AM that I AM, Melchizedek: Today forevermore" - Derek Lamar

I AM continuing...
