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

1 "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."

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

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

4 "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."

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

6 "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."

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

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

9 "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."

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

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

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

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

14 “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.”

15 “Only One exists.”

16 “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.”

17 “Oneness binds all human beings together.”

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

19 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

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

21 "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."

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

23 "The teachings of the sages throughout human history have ever included the call to live so that others are helped rather than harmed by one's actions. Here also is the message for today to all mankind. 'Take responsibility. Be concerned about the welfare of others, physical, emotional, and mental.' This, indeed, is the heart of the religion of the New Age and happily is so becoming for a growing number of people during this present period of human history."

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

25 "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."
