With the extreme conditions we are seeing more and more often, people everywhere long for reassurance and peace, and “We’re all one” may seem like a distant dream. So may it bring hope to consider that, with the core of goodness inside so much of humankind, a more inclusive and positive future is not only urgently needed, but entirely achievable. No matter where we live or what our beliefs, all of us have a common basis in the desire for freedom, security, and peace of mind. We’re all one, as reflected so well in the expression of the Golden Rule in seven world religions:
Christianity –– “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.”
Confucianism –– “Do not unto others what you would not they should do to you.”
Buddhism –– “In five ways should a clansman minister to his friends and familiars – by generosity, courtesy and benevolence, by treating them as he treats himself, and by being as good as his word.”
Hinduism –– “Do not to others, which if done to thee would cause thee pain.”
Islam –– “No one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”
Judaism –– “What is hurtful to yourself, do not to your fellow man.”
Taoism –– “Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain and regard your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.”
With this universal principle as a basis, and to help bring us together in friendship and harmony, wise and understanding Masters have supplied the essential information we need in the Lemurian Philosophy. It is based on principles that apply to all people, no matter what race, color, or belief. Within it are plans for a magnificent program that will culminate in the Kingdom of God –– a civilization that must first be built within each of us with every kind and positive thought and action. Within it, all will live and work together in harmony and for the greatest good of all, knowing that only in this way may they earn these spiritual treasures for themselves.
If this sounds like a Utopian scheme to you, you may be encouraged to know that Lemurian principles have been used before to build a harmonious civilization that endured for thousands of years. And as we begin to transmute our present civilization into a more ideal one, Lemurian students have been living and working together using these principles in Southern California for over sixty years. They are proving the validity and efficacy of this way of life and are actively earning a place in the coming civilization. You can too!
May you be reassured by the thought that we’re all one and affected by each other whether near or far. As we take hold of the guidance of those greater than ourselves, together we can build a more peaceful today and work together for a better tomorrow.
