"There is one divine Mind which keeps the universe in order and one providence which governs it." Plutarch (ca. 46-120), Greek biographer, 'Lives'
The Quotable Spirit
(Peter Lorie and Manuela D Mascetti, editors)
"Here is how Rumi describes the Divine and its works: 'That is the Ocean of Oneness, wherein is no mate or consort. Its pearls and its fish are none other than its waves….Spirit is truly and always one; but its manifestations on different planes of creation are different. Just as ice, water, and vapor are not three things but only three forms of the same thing, similarly Spirit is one, but its forms are many.'"
The Cosmic Game, Explorations of the Frontiers of Human Consciousness
"The One Cosmic Life-Consciousness, binding everything together, and permeating everything, flows through all." Lina Psaltis, introduction
Dynamics of the Psychic World
(Helena P. Blavatsky)
"The atom is, in many ways, seen to behave as much like a wave as a particle. It can perhaps best be regarded as a poorly defined cloud, dependednt for its particular form on the whole environment, including the observing instrument…Both observer and observed are merging and interpenetrating aspects of one whole reality, which is indivisible." Fritjof Capra, 'The Tao of Physics'
The Unfolding Self: Varieties of Transformative Experience
"The great unitary vision of the Vedic sage made him capable of conceiving a oneness to which all aspects converged; all things, working toward greater harmony of the whole." Jeanine Miller, 'The Relevance of the Vedas to Modern Man'
The American Theosophist
"Even as time is, in its essentiality, beginningless and endless duration, incapable of division into past, present, and future, so space is dimensionless, and divisionless, and non-existent apart from the One Mind."
The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation
(W. Y. Evans-Wentz, compiler and editor)
“The great work of primitive Buddhism was to emphasize the fundamental unity of life through the doctrine of the One Universal Self.”
Lectures on Ancient Philosophy
(Manly P. Hall)
"The world is built up of thousands of differing rates of vibrations, all these having their origin in the One original vibration of the mind of the Creator."
The Finding of the Third Eye
(Vera Stanley Alder)
"The Eight Hundred Myriads of Gods are but differing manifestations of one unique Deity…The Eternally Standing Divine Being of the Earth, The Great Unity of All Things in the Universe, The Primordial Being of Heaven and Earth, eternally existing." Izawa-Nagahide, 'Shinto-Ameno-Nuboko-no-Ki'
Hero With A Thousand Faces
"Whether it is Blake losing himself in a knot in a piece of wood, Wordsworth in lines of curling mist or the figures of a shepherd and his dog, Shelley in the west wind, or Rilke in the bird flying through him and the tree growing within him – each and all of them were engaged in the task of reconciling the Knower and the Field, so that the perceiver and the perception might be one."
The Flame and the Light
(Hugh I'anson Fausset)
