Wars are being fought for ideological reasons – especially for religious beliefs, whether they be Christians, Hindus, Jews, Moslems or others who refer to their Gods by different names and all believe that their God is on their side.
By referring to a general ‘Godhead’ or ‘Supreme Intelligence’, we identify the Creator of the Universe without a name. In this way, we avoid rivalry, prejudice and generations of bitter quarrels.
‘Oneness’ avoids the ‘brand’ which identifies a person by their religion yet promotes ‘spirituality’ per se. ‘Oneness’ unites and equalises all people and yet recognises our responsibilities to make our world a better place for everyone through caring, justice, peace, truth and other necessary values.
As we progress, we understand more about our world which has been created with interdependency needs. In our present world of self-centredness, hierarchy and war, 'oneness' is a vision of a possible future to work towards where justice and peace can be achieved.
