Spiritual unity: a prophet's vision

One of mankind's greatest needs is to break out of a limited sense of self, and a help in doing this is a growing understanding of the deeper dimensions of spiritual unity. Why? Because spiritual unity relates to individual as well as collective progress.

This unity is not getting everyone to stand on the head of the same pin; rather, it is discerning the reality of everyone and everything as coming under the guidance and control of the one infinite, all-embracing divine Mind. Spirit is God. And Spirit includes each idea individually and all ideas collectively. This is the basis of Paul's vision: "There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." Eph. 4:4-6;

To see and discern this frees the individual from accepting self-imposed isolation and allows him to become part of one Christian whole. It also harmonizes the collective experience by strengthening the community, enlivening the church, and offering a vision of global peace to each and all. No idea is secluded from Mind. Knowing this, we recognize that we all have a vital role to fill in divine Love's universal plan.
