2 "What we call opposites are only complementary parts of a greater whole."

3 "If we treat everything as alive, intelligent and part of the One Life, our own life is greatly enriched."

5 "We share the one limitless energy that is within all life forms and actions. When we accept and acknowledge the beauty and perfection of each form this energy takes, we experience oneness."

6 "To do God's will you must attempt to see with his vision, know with his love, live with his life. It is as simple as that. It is not a complex pattern."

7 "Humanity represents the stage of Earth's unfoldment at which the planetary soul becomes not only self aware but functionally and creatively conscious of the processes through which growth, awareness and the externalization of spirit through form take place."

12 "We have many opportunities every day through which to learn of the unity in apparent separation. We can work toward it in every moment."

17 "The image of God is the process of divinity itself, and that is a process of growth, of nourishment, of wisdom, light and love. It is the process of life unfolding itself into greater levels of freedom and knowing and expression."

18 "Love is the energy of acceptance that cuts through the apparent barriers and links us with every part of life."

19 "God is within everyone, the very thing everyone lives by."

20 "Man is given the gift of creative imagination and must create the vision of what must be done."

21 "To heal the Earth, which is our greater body, we must create an ecological balance within as well as without. We do so by recognizing that the basis of life is interrelationship."

22 "You, too, are parts of the whole – part of that clod of earth, part of that tiny flower, part of the sunshine and the rain, the light in another's eye, the warmth of another's smile."

23 "I know that God is within each one of us, within everything."
