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

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

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

3 "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."

4 “Only One exists.”

5 "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."

6 "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."

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

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

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

11 “Love is the mightiest power of all.”

12 "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."

13 "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."

14 “All life within all forms is One Life.”

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

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

17 "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."

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

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

20 “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.”

21 “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.”

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

23 “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.”

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

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