"Almost all the principles that are associated with religious thought are shared by every religion"

Jeffrey Moses, Oneness, Part 1

Throughout the ages, the scriptures of all religions have proclaimed that humanity is one great family. This is a simple truth, and it is simply and directly stated in every religion. In fact, almost all the principles that are associated with religious thought are shared by every religion. The Golden Rule, Love Thy Neighbor, Honor Thy Father and Mother, Speak Truth, It Is More Blessed to Give Than to Receive--these principles and others are common to all religions and are very similarly expressed in each.

This book discusses many of these fundamental precepts and shows their similarity of expression. Each page was put together with the awareness that modem words can hardly add to the immensity of the world's collected spiritual wisdom. For this reason the commentaries are short, allowing the sayings to speak for themselves.

The principles in this book form the basis for structuring an individual's life. The great sayings are like a guide or a blueprint for the inner development of mind and spirit that allows a person to achieve his highest goals. These principles are the foundation for success in personal relationships with family and friends, for satisfaction and success in business activities, and for that final aspiration in life that each person ultimately desires--the achievement of inner peace extending beyond the confines of an individual lifetime.

These great principles are not limiting to a person's satisfaction and fulfillment. Instead, they are guidelines that enable men and women to evolve to the highest point of human consciousness, wherein oneness is achieved with all the laws of nature. They allow men to avoid mistakes, to take the path of growth and achievement, and to answer the urgent and vital questions that ultimately arise.
