"Science, rather than putting to rest the ancient religion (animism), has given proponents new ways of conceptualizing their beliefs. If energy cannot be destroyed, they claim, but only changed to a different form, why is it not possible to conceive of the notion that life energy, upon the death of the body, takes on a new shape?"
"When one discovers that Atman, the inner self, and Brahman, the essence of the universe, are indeed one, the experienced result is said to be one of immense peace and harmony, of coming home. The human perception of life is often that of a small, fragile being gazing out into an infinite, unknowable space. Hinduism teaches that the intuitive leap of realizing 'that art thou' tells us we belong. We have a place. We are one with the stars and the consciousness that brought them into being."
"Your decisions come from your beliefs as certainly as all creation rose in His Mind because of what He knows."
"A succinct definition of Hinduism might read, 'The Universe is profoundly One.'"
"He is the First and the Last, and the Outward and the Inward, and he is the Knower of all things." The Koran, 57:3
"The self (Atman) is really Brahman, the only being, the universal being, the One. So the self, the ego, and the essence of the universe are really one."
"There is but One God." Ravidas, poet and cobbler, 'World of Illusion'
"And he (Allah) is with you wheresoever ye may be." The Koran, 57:4
