Unity and Universality

The statement that Truth is only one does not mean that Truth has only one name or name or can be expressed in a single formulation. It is not a statement of limitation or qualification on Truth. That Truth is one also means that it is universal, innate in all beings and inherent in all existence. Truth is both one and infinite, which means beyond all boundaries and definitions. It cannot be circumscribed by any belief, idea or personality, however great these may be.

That Truth is only one also means Truth has any number of formulations or expressions and cannot be reduced to any single one of them. The unity of Truth is an inclusive unity, not an exclusive singularity which cannot accept anything but itself. Truth is not one thing opposed to another but that which transcends and includes within itself all things. 

Truth is like the ocean which can accept all streams without being increased or decreased. To uphold the unity of Truth correctly we must affirm its infinity and universality and not limit it to any human formulation. Truth is not a thing of the marketplace, nor some form of information, someone's opinion, or any form of dogma or propaganda. It is found in the nature of existence, and cannot be reduced to any external form or expression. It transcends all organizations and classifications.
