3 "Immortal and eternally continuing being, and an over-all universal identity are unthinkingly natural at all levels of awareness 'above' that of conceptual thought."

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

5 "Recognition of world-unity must become an absolutely governing principle in all relationships, between human beings, between man and animals, and all sentient creatures."

12 "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."

13 “Humanity is made in God’s image.”

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

15 "God is Life, and the forms of nature are but the tabernacles in which Deity is enshrined."

16 “This One Alone is no mere philosophic abstraction, but a Reality.”

17 “Oneness binds all human beings together.”

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

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

20 “Nightmares will begin to give way to day, as the sunshine of wisdom revealing Oneness dawns upon the human mind.”

21 “Love is the mightiest power of all.”

22 “The one real world is always there in its undivided wholeness.”

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

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