"Underneath our familial heritage, underneath our gender, underneath our race, underneath our sexual preferences, we are all the same. We all share the oneness, the allness that is God. Underneath our various veneers, we are one. When we are healed of our petty thoughts, prejudices, and attitudes, we can finally realize this wondrous Truth of our being." Joan Gattuso, 'Toward Living the Abundant Life'
"The central teaching of Unity (School of Christianity) is this: There is only one Presence and one Power in the universe – God, the Good and Omnipotent." James Dillet Freeman, 'Imagination: The Wondrous Power of Conception'
"Within each soul, a divine plan guides its evolution. Within the collective soul of humanity, a divine plan directs the path of our evolution. The evolutionary design to which Teilhard, Hubbard, and others have alluded is a divine intelligence operating throughout all of creation." Robert Brumet, 'Power Shift: A New Paradigm for the New Millennium'
"Remember that every effort you make in the direction of wholeness and the common good contributes to shifting the overall consciousness of our world." Dr. Barbara L. King, 'Will: The Foundation Faculty of the New Global Order'

Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Discovery of a New Ordering of the Future'
"Crises precede transformation. Before every quantum change, 'problems' emerge – limits to growth, stagnation, unmanageable complexity, impending catastrophes, disintegration. From the perspective of the present, the crises look like mistakes, deadly errors in the system. But from the perspective after the quantum transformation, these problems are seen to be 'evolutionary drivers', vital stimulants which trigger astounding 'design innovations'." Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'The Evolutionary Journey'
"Humanity, as a species, is part of a divine plan that is seeking expression through the process of evolution.

Robert Brumet, 'Power Shift: A New Paradigm for the New Millennium'

Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Discovery of a New Ordering of the Future'
"God has given us the freedom to think what we choose and the creative capacity to bring forth worlds accordingly. What we think, we experience." Marianne Williamson, Foreword

Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Discovery of a New Ordering of the Future'
"The Force that created us knows what it is doing. Behind the apparent entanglements and difficulties of our life there is a cosmic conspiracy unfolding. It's always there – behind our clouded judgments and discomforts – and it can be trusted." Christopher H. Jackson, 'Zeal: A Fuel for Spiritual Pioneering',
"As we trust the divine plan at work in our life, we move into harmony with the spirit of evolution that inexorably carries us – collectively and individually – forward into the next stage of the process leading to Omega: conscious oneness with God."

"We are beginning to truly understand and appreciate that we are all connected, that we are all part of a whole. New physics teaches us what mystics have known for millennia: that ultimately everything is connected in a unified field and that the natural drift of the universe is toward wholeness. In Hinduism, we find the story of Indra's net. Indra, the god of the firmament, has a huge net. Everything in creation hangs on this net as jewels. If one jewel shakes, the entire net and all the jewels shake. We are learning as never before that what we think, what we believe, and what we do shake the entire net of creation." Rosemary Ellen Guiley, 'The Fire of Faith'

Our atoms, molecules, cells, organs, and early brain have the memory of the whole story of creation. We are awakening to that story as our own birth story." Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Dicscovery of a New Ordering of the Future'
"Prayer is not an attempt to get God to come to our rescue; rather, it is a refocusing of our consciousness from the appearance of lack and limitation to the reality of wholeness." Eric Butterworth, Unity minister and radio broadcaster, 'The Age of Wisdom'
"Our innermost, secret motivations are an expression of the very same ordering tendency that was, is now, and ever will be creating the universe! The Force is with us." Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Discovery of a New Ordering of the Future'
"In fact, freedom increases with complexity, as Jan Smuts first pointed out in 'Holism and Evolution'. As we move up the chain of life, freedom of choice increases." Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Discovery of a New Ordering of the Future'

"What is the plan?....We could call it a 'divine plan', or we could call it an 'evolutionary imperative', which is essentially the same thing.

Robert Brumet, 'Power Shift: A New Paradigm for the New Millennium'
