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

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

2 "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."

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

4 “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.”

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

6 “The bond of unity intimately relates all beings.”

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

8 "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."

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

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

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

13 “Oneness binds all human beings together.”

14 "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."

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

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

18 "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."

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

20 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

21 "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."

22 “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.”

23 "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."

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

25 "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."
