1 "Glory to the unchangeable, holy, eternal, supreme Vishnu, of one universal nature….Glory to the supreme Vishnu, the cause of the creation, existence, and the end of this world; who is the root of the world and who consists of the world." The Vishnu Purana

2 “The One Supreme Power manifesting throughout the cosmic organism should be considered as manifesting through all created things.”

3 "Wholeness is an archetypal quality – an attribute of Deity. Regardless of the nature of its expression, every activity, quality, or condition is essentially a wholeness. This wholeness is made manifest by a division within itself whereby its nature becomes a mass of innumerable fragments, each of the fractions partaking of the quality resident in the original wholeness, and manifesting it through the wholeness of its own fractional part."

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

5 "Slayer and savior alike are marching on through the ages toward inevitable perfection."

7 “A growing tree increases from a single shoot to a miracle of branches and foliage, yet nowhere is there any inconsistency or contradiction in the process…From the first quickening of its seed the tree moves inevitably toward a single end. This perfect cooperation of parts demonstrates the exactness of the power that willed it into being.”

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

9 “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.”

10 “The great work of primitive Buddhism was to emphasize the fundamental unity of life through the doctrine of the One Universal Self.”

11 “The One and Undivided is the very foundation of manifested existence.”

12 "Unborn and undying, the Self is neither old nor young. Its condition never changes; for though all things pass away, it endures. It is wholeness."

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

14 “Humanity possesses the power to interpret the whole and can actually come to realize its kinship with all.”

16 “Every substance, object, element, and agent in the universe is capable of instructing us in those phases of divine order which are involved in its own constitution.”

17 "The Beautiful is an eternal flow; it is the One in motion."

18 “When we adore the God of harmony, we shall know the inner mystery of life.”

19 "We are destined by Eternal Providence to become the fullness of ourselves….we shall find perfection in the consummation of the destiny for which we were first conceived."

20 "Each individual, by receding into his own divine nature, may discover within himself the divine nature of all creatures. He may even become every other creature, for that part of himself which is real is every other creature."

21 "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."

22 “All are embraced within the span of the eternal philosophic NOW.”

23 “Think of religion as the universal adoration of creative principles common to all humanity.”

24 “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.”
