2 “All is in All; All is All.” Rosicrucian saying

3 “The all-sufficiency of Universal Good is all-sufficing.”

4 "To know the nature of all things is to realize that all things are good."

5 "There is no way in which to more rapidly release our own internal potentials than through the discovery of the wonders of the Universal Plan and the parts that each of us must play in the perfection of our world."

6 “The law of the soul is love.”

7 “Beauty is in the human soul, lifting us upward to ever nobler vistas of endeavor.”

8 “God is all there is….God is the heavens and the earth, and all the creatures that inhabit them.” Anonymous East Indian sage

9 “Plato maintained that the One is All-Being.”

10 “All things subsist in all things.”

11 "The new message is the gospel of identity. It is not an effort to unite lives in a common interest, but a recognition of the fact that all forms are but manifestations of one indivisible agent….Indissoluble unity is fundamental throughout the universe."

12 "Perfect consciousness is perfect realization of the nature and relationship of parts to the fundamental unity in which they exist."

13 “Humanity is the microcosm, or little universe – the miniature creation in whose composite nature are epitomized the varius orders of life.”

14 “In the midst of this ever-changing scene is an intangible but all-pervading and inclusive permanence – the divine Reality, the Self, the perfect Wholeness.”

17 "Until we are everything that we in our ignorance believe surrounds us, there is no complete consciousness. We may study the star intellectually, but we have never attained consciousness until we are the star, the stone, the heavens, and the earth. When our consciousness is perfect we extend from the heights of height to the depths of depth; we permeate the whole nature of existence; we are in everything, we are through everything, we are the whole nature of everything."

18 “Let us look at the world through the eyes of those dreamers who have dared to believe that the good in human nature would ultimately blossom forth and regenerate the entire social system.”

19 “Since the generated world is a collective whole, if we apply the ears of our intellect to the world we shall, perhaps, hear it thus addressing us: ‘There is no doubt but I was composed from all animals, entirely sufficient to myself, and destitute of nothing;…All things are contained in my ample bosom.” Plotinus, ‘On Providence’

20 “To Be is to be immortal, for that which has been can never utterly cease.”

21 “He who becomes luminous shines not with a separate light but rather is merged with the one light whose radiance is diffused throughout all worlds.”

22 “Perfect rhythms stream continually from the splendor of Abiding Destiny.”

23 "Man, gazing into the eyes of man, beholds therein his Maker. His Creator sings to him with the voice of the wilderness, and descends upon him from the stars that spangle the heavens by night."

24 “For this age we must have a doctrine of synthesis, a code actuated and dominated by the spirit of unification.”

25 “Roundness partakes of the nature of wholeness because the circle or sphere (like wholeness) is without beginning or end. To think in round terms may be interpreted to mean keeping the mentality upon the level of greatest inclusiveness, ever striving to attain fuller inclusiveness.”
