Never at the Expense of Difference

Beverly Lanzetta Meditations, Study

“TRUE UNITY and true communion are never at the expense of difference. Every religion is sustained by a vision of oneness at its core. Every religious tradition brings to the heart of the faithful a unique and stunning vision of ultimate reality. The very existence of these religious lineages is sacred. Mystical unity does not reduce a religion’s difference but empowers and fulfills its coming to wholeness in the mind or soul of the individual. When we enter a religion in its depth, when we become one with its wisdom, then we know that is is both uniquely true and the source that points beyond itself to greater and ever more incomprehensible mysteries.”
