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

1 “No matter how great the disturbances, how persistent and for how long they may continue, their effects are temporary. The universally operative law causes harmonious equilibrium to be restored in the disequiliberated region.”

2 "In the inmost Self, every human being is intimately related to every other…However marked the differences may be at the levels of the mortal man, inwardly the spirit in each one is the same, an essence which is equally shared. Indeed, the same actual, identical Life-Essence is incarnate or embodied in the whole of nature, nothing existing without that Presence being inherently within it as a veritable Reality."

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

4 "Oneness is the supreme truth; its full and continuous realization the highest attainment of humanity."

5 “God far transcends all intellectual conceptions of dividedness. On the contrary, THAT is, above all, One and One Alone.”

6 "Man as microcosm is one with the Divine or the macrocosm. The spirit, or Monad, of man is one with that supreme Spirit….The Deity is in no sense external to, different or separate from man. God and man are one and indivisible throughout all eternity."

7 “Nightmares will begin to give way to day, as the sunshine of wisdom revealing Oneness dawns upon the human mind.”

8 "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."

9 “Man is a God-in-the-becoming. This, the ancient sages taught, is his destiny: ‘Ye shall be perfect even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.’ (Matt. 5:48), ‘…look inward; thou art Buddha; become that which you are.’ (H. P. Blavatsky, ‘The Voice of the Silence’).”

10 “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.”

11 “The one real world is always there in its undivided wholeness.”

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 “Love is the mightiest power of all.”

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

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

16 "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."

17 "Every note and chord of physical experience – sound, light, vitality, emotion, and thought – contributes to the complete harmony."

18 “Oneness binds all human beings together.”

19 "Recognition of this relationship of oneness is the only possible way to personal, national, and international health, peace, and therefore happiness."

20 "The very Life Essence in the aspiring soul is identical with that in every other being throughout all the kingdoms of nature."

21 "Our earth and everything upon it…are intimately linked together."

22 "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."

23 "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."

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

25 "From within, from the very most interior center of existence and consciousness, the fact of oneness evermore proves to be the overriding truth."
