"The profound fact of oneness not only on Earth but in all creation is becoming more and more evident as knowledge expands outward, and nowhere are to be found any absolute boundary lines or uncrossable barriers between any kingdoms of life. Not even between life and nonlife, nor between body and mind and spirit."
Seven Mysteries of Life, An Exploration in Science and Philosophy
"Spirit is One, but within that essential unity the points of fire, the divine sparks, can be seen and noted."
Esoteric Psychology I
(Alice A. Bailey)
"Try to see this world and the personalities of men as vehicles for the Divine Presence and the Divine Life, remembering also: All are but parts of one stupendous whole."

The Philokalia, volume 2

A Course in Miracles
(Helen Schucman and William Thetford)
"Ultimately, to be sure, there is only one Monad (a term from Greek that means 'unity'). But as that Monad is reflected in evolved matter and the developed kingdoms of life, it is continually refracted, so that it seems to itself to become increasingly limited and fragmented. Thus the One apparently divides into the many." John Algeo, 'Dark Angels'
Angels and Mortals, Their Co-Creative Power
(Maria Parisen, compiler)
"Nature and matter, understood alchemically, can only be one and animated. Any demonstrative process that seeks to prove the opposite is mistaken not only in its manner but also in its mode of observation." Francoise Bonardel, 'Alchemical Esotericism and the Hermeneutics of Culture'
Modern Esoteric Spirituality

"The one Universal Light is ever existent." Chaldean Book of Numbers
The Secret Doctrine
(Helena P. Blavatsky)
"This sensation of being one with the universe is much more common than one might initially suspect, for it is the very foundation of all other sensations."
Spectrum of Consciousness
"If we are enlightened by the contemplation of and knowledge of the One we are enabled to be unified, to achieve a truly divine oneness and it will never happen that we succumb to that fragmentation…which is the source of hostility between equals."
Pseudo-Dionysius, The Complete Works
(John Farina, Editor-in-Chief)
"O, wondrous thing that all these lamps of the Divine attributes should be one simple being in which alone they are experienced, and yet that the distinction between them should be visible and perceptible, the one being as completely enkindled as the other and the one being substantially the other! Oh, abyss of delights, the more abundant in proportion as Your riches are gathered together in infinite unity and simplicity, so that each one is known and experienced in such a way that the perfect knowledge and absorption of the other may not be impeded thereby, but rather each thng within You is the light of the other, so that through Your purity, Oh, Divine wisdom, many things are seen in you when one thing is seen, since You are the store-house of the treasures."
Living Flame of Love
(St. John of the Cross)
"'God is One' is the utterance of truth. One life pervades all forms and those forms are the expressions, in time and space, of the central universal energy."
