One Religion of Truth therefore is the religion of the individual.
It sees every individual as a unique manifestation of the Divine to
be honored, not to be reduced to a preconceived type. Its creed is
not uniformity, which is only an outward identity of labels, names
and rituals. Its vision is a unity of the inner heart beyond
external distinctions, a merging of the many into an inherent
oneness, not the sacrifice of the many into an artificial idea of
singularity which excludes diversity.
The universal religion does not seek to impose the
same beliefs but everyone, but rather allows each soul to find its
true nature beyond all limiting externalities. The
One Religion of Truth cannot be a monolithic creed but rather must
be a fluid and adaptable organic system, as broad and variable as
life itself. The universal religion must honor all religious and
spiritual inclinations, all valid forms of worship, and every useful
method of inner growth. It must embrace all the names and forms of
Divinity, personal and impersonal, and yet not be limited by them.
Like the laws of Nature it must
have its specific application for every single creature and every
different species. Such a universal religion will grant all
spiritual and religious practices their appropriate place and not
reject anything useful for the development of higher consciousness.
It will honor not only the One but the All, not only unity but
uniqueness, and in respecting the One in each creature, will not
seek to impose itself willfully upon anyone.
