Please accept this invitation to cross the traditional boundaries of religion, history and culture to merge what you already know with a more transcendent realization that these universal principles are rooted in all the wisdom traditions.
Because these principles are commonly shared, held sacred by most, and practiced
by many throughout the world, we can begin to realize we live in a world of
common unity. Over time this realization may become so true, so personal,
and so integrated into our belief system that we will act from an unprecedented
understanding that we are one universal species on the planet who share
common ground. We will have a heightened awareness of the richness of our
diversity. Our moral imperative will be to seek communion with one another
while appreciating our abundant differentiation.
