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

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

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

3 “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.”

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

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

6 “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.”

7 “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.”

8 “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.”

9 "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."

10 "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."

11 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

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

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

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

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

16 "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."

17 “Humanity will one day become illumined by realization of oneness and moved by its expression as love for all other forms of life.”

18 "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."

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

20 “Love is the mightiest power of all.”

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

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 “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.”

25 “Only One exists.”
