Unity’s 3 Basic Principles
1. Our view of God.
2. Our view of the individual.
3. Our view of the relationship between God and the individual.
Our view of God can be summarized in our foundation statement: There is only one presence and one power in the universe, God the good, omnipotent. Though there are variations on this statement, the idea that God the good is the only power at work.
Our view of the individual is that God the good is individualized as the central core of every person’s being. All the elements that God is are focalized as the essence of the individual.
Our view of the relationship between God and the individual is that of unity, oneness. There is no place where God leaves off and the individual begins.
These three elements determine how and why we view Jesus in the way we do. They totally influence the way we approach prayer and meditation. They provide the rationale behind our approach to healing. They are the foundation that governs our understanding of prosperity. In fact, every single concept we teach has as its basis of logic our understanding of these three elements. Those who wish to know why Unity takes its particular approach on any given subject will understand why once they have this key.
