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

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

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

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

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

5 “Oneness binds all human beings together.”

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

7 "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."

8 "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."

9 “Only One exists.”

10 "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."

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

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

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

14 “The Bhagavad Gita or the Lord’s Song states: ‘…And whoso thus discerns Me in all, and all in Me, I never let him go; nor loosens he hold upon Me.”

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 “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.”

17 "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."

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

19 “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.”

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

21 “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.”

22 “Spiritual light has an interior origin and perpetually shines. It is the radiation from the purest spirit-Self.”

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

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

25 "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."
