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

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

2 “Only One exists.”

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

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

5 “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.”

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

7 "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."

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

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

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

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

12 “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.”

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

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

15 "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."

16 “Love is the mightiest power of all.”

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 "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."

19 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

20 “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.”

21 “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.”

22 "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."

23 “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.”

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

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