A Positive Path for Spiritual Living
Religions are like braches of a tree. Each branch differs slightly, but all are attached to the same trunk and draw nourishment from the same source.
Deep within each of us is an individual awareness that is part of Universal awareness. The wisdom teachers of every wisdom have drawn upon this source. Every faith tradition was originally inspired by the Divine. The words of Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, Shankara, and Confucius may vary - but their common message of the necessity of human compassion, understanding, and devotion for helping others expresses the Oneness of the human family.
We can have no higher calling than to assist the emergence of understanding between all people. Those who are called to this find themselves inspired by God. They become guiding lights for an age when quarrels and differences will fade with peace and harmony becoming a way of life.
All scripture is inspired by God, and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that we may be complete and equipped for every good work. - Christianity
Do not decry other sects, do not deprecate others, but honor whatever within them is worthy of honor. - Buddhism
In varying ways the sages have described the same unvarying and essential truths. There is no real conflict between them all. - Hinduism
Truth does not depart from human nature. If what is regarded as truth departs from human nature, it may not be regarded as truth. - Confucianism.
We believe in God, and all that which has been sent down to us, and that which has been sent down to Abraham... and that which was given to Moses and to Jesus, and that which was given to the prophets from God. We make no distinctions between any of them: and to God are we resigned. - Islam
Allow us to recognize God in all holy names and forms: as Rama, as Krishna, as Shiva, as Buddha. Let us know God as Abraham, as Solomon, as Zarathustra, as Moses, as Jesus, as Mohammed, and in many other names and forms, known and unknown to the world. - Sufism
