Call to the Heights, Guidance on the Pathway to Self-illumination
Geoffrey Hodson

2 “This is the great call, this is the voice which is never still – namely a call to attain to maximum effectiveness as a member of the human race on behalf of one’s fellowmen and younger brothers of the animal kingdom.”

3 "Immortal and eternally continuing being, and an over-all universal identity are unthinkingly natural at all levels of awareness 'above' that of conceptual thought."

4 “All life within all forms is One Life.”

5 "Man's spiritual Self perpetually unfolds potential capacities, this being the purpose for his existence."

6 "No one, no living being, is wholly outside the range and reach of the state of consciousness of every other….Every member of the human family is in contact with all others, so that in varying degrees each one influences every human being."

7 “Love is the mightiest power of all.”

8 "Oneness exists and rules completely and without escape."

9 “The bond of unity intimately relates all beings.”

10 "The One is all-pervading and without division."

11 "At the very heart and center of existence, pervading the whole manifestation of the divine Idea, there exists one predominant Law. This Law – insofar as it may be comprehended by humanity – decrees that the tendency to preserve harmonious equilibrium, shall always be stronger than the tendencies toward discordance."

12 “Deeply penetrative self-examination, self-discovery and self-purification are essential if the divine in oneself and in one’s fellowmen is to be evoked.”

13 “Humanity will one day become illumined by realization of oneness and moved by its expression as love for all other forms of life.”

14 "God is Life, and the forms of nature are but the tabernacles in which Deity is enshrined."

15 "Recognition of world-unity must become an absolutely governing principle in all relationships, between human beings, between man and animals, and all sentient creatures."

16 “Love may be regarded as potentially the greatest gift which can be either bestowed or received.”

17 “If regarded solely by the mind, the human race exhibits a great diversity; seen by intuitive perception and implicit insight, these differences are found to be largely limited to the surface. Below the surface can be discerned an underlying bond which holds together, in unbreakable unity, all human beings – indeed, all that exists.”

18 “Only One exists.”

19 "The One Life is THAT which is everywhere without limit, ever-existing without beginning or end, and – though words inevitably fail – ever-inclusive, implying that there is nowhere and no time at whch it does not exist."

20 “No matter how different forms may appear, the Life of this universe is One Life.”

21 “Unity with the One Life in all is the well or spring from which the waters of life are drawn, and active expression of deeply compassionate concern is the natural direction in which that water inevitably flows.”

22 “A truly awakened person is one who freely gives light, life, wisdom, knowledge, encouragement, and the outstretched hand to all with whom he comes into contact….the Divine shines out in him, awakening the aspiration to enlightenment in all those who are able to perceive it.”

23 "The living heart of all religion is experienced oneness with the Divine and its expression by means of wisely directed, loving service."

24 "No matter how different forms may appear, the Life of this universe is One Life."

25 "Planetary disasters such as wars and personal catastrophies caused by wrong thinking may very justly be diagnosed as inability to perceive intuitively the unity of all forms of embodied life."
