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

1 “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.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9 "The inner Self abides in pure, simple, absolute awareness, radiant with its own light, expressing itself spontaneously in a secret infinity of joy."

10 "The Presence, as an indwelling spiritual life, is one and the same in every human being. It is the essential attribute of humanity's whole nature and is also one and the same in every single person on earth. Full realization of the interrelationship between people will bring the dawn of the Golden Age."

11 “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.”

12 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

13 "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."

14 “This One Alone is no mere philosophic abstraction, but a Reality.”

15 “Oneness binds all human beings together.”

16 “Gentleness, tenderness, caring deeply – these are the ways, however humble, by which the very best in a person’s life can shine forth.”

17 "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."

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

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

20 “Only One exists.”

21 “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.”

22 "Beneath all differences there lies concealed the unalterable fact of oneness."

23 “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.”

24 “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.”

25 “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’).”
