"Long ago, in the Rg-Veda, we find the idea of Purusa (the one great person), the Supreme Reality, which is both transcendent and immanent."
The Manifold and The One
"We have heard repeatedly the term 'One World'. Events seem to be shaping themselves into a creation of a 'one world' consciousness."

Divine Light and Love
(Peter Roche deCoppens)
"Life being one,…our duty to our fellows is to understand them as extensions, other aspects, of ourselves – fellow facets of the same Reality." Christmas Humphreys, 'Buddhism'

The Philokalia, volume 4
(various authors, compiled by St. Nikodimos and St. Makarios)
"The Lord is One. All that exists, good and evil, justice and injustice, has its source in this fathomless and unutterable unity. All the powers of heaven and hell arise out of the One and serve it, each in its own way. We may not be able to understand how or why this should be, but so it is."
Inner Christianity, A Guide to the Esoteric Tradition
"One Life nourishes, sustains and unites all parts and all beings."
"When the Biblical words are used: 'In Him we live and move and have our being,' we have the statement of a fundamental law in nature…the One Life animates every form on the outer objective plane."
(Alice A. Bailey)
"One thing enters into every regimen and is found everywhere, being a stone and also not a stone; common and precious; hidden and concealed, yet known by everyone; of one name and many names….Without it nature never operates anything. Its name is one, yet we have called it by many names on account of the excellence of its nature." Turba Philosophorum
