3 "All these parts of the Cosmos…are in correspondence or harmonious interaction or mutual resonance with each other."

9 "Oneness is the supreme truth."

10 "Unfoldment from less to more and reharmonization operate irresistibly upon man, as upon all else that exists. Man can delay or hasten, but he cannot ultimately frustrate these two functions of the Cosmic Will."

11 "The whole Universe with all its parts…is interlocked, interwoven, to make a single whole, one body, one organism, one life, one consciousness, cyclicly evolving under one law."

17 "Actions which help and heal others and which preserve and restore, when disturbed, the harmony of the Universe, are in accord with cosmic purpose and so produce happiness, which is moreness, fullness, and accord. One should therefore be harmonious and a harmoniser. Herein lies the individual contribution to the solution of the problem of war; for when the harmonisers become a majority peace will reign."

18 "Man is indeed a mystery, since he contains germinally within himself all his Creator's manifested attributes and powers and, in addition, those which will continue to become manifest throughout unending ages."

19 "Despite its denial by man, the fact of oneness remains. From that unity, that one Source, is derived the God-Self of man, the Inner Ruler Immortal. From and through that Immortal Self, Power from the One Source is flowing."
