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

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

4 “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.”

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

6 "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."

7 “All worlds at all levels from densest matter to purest spirit are in perpetual communication with each other.”

8 "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."

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

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

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

12 "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."

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

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

15 "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."

16 “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’).”

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

18 "The whole of humanity advances, however slightly, as each single human being progresses upon the spiritual pathway."

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

20 “Only One exists.”

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

22 “Scriptural records as remain and are reasonably accurate reveal that the teachings given by the Sages to the mass of mankind were surprisingly few and quite similar.”

23 "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."

24 “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.”

25 “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.”
