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

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

2 “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.”

3 “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.”

4 "The cause of almost all human destructiveness and sorrow can be traced to absence of the knowledge that division is an error and oneness is the fact concerning human life – indeed all life."

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

7 “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.”

8 "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."

9 "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."

10 “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.”

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

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

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

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

15 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

16 "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."

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

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

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

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

21 "As humanity quite naturally travels the evolutionary pathway, this state of realized oneness will become more easily attained."

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

23 “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’).”

24 “Only One exists.”

25 "Every experience is valuable; nothing is wasted, even if it appears so, for silently the seed is developing."
