Unity’s First Principle is a foundational concept that lies at the core of the Unity movement. Yet, as my professor in Ministerial School once said, “We only have the other four principles because we don’t really believe the First Principle.”
The First Principle states that “There is only one Presence and one Power active as the Universe and as my life, God the Good.” This principle underscores the belief in a singular, omnipresent, and omnipotent force that governs all existence. It teaches adherents to see beyond apparent differences and recognize the underlying unity that binds all beings and phenomena in the universe.
Unity’s First Principle serves as a guiding light for personal transformation and spiritual growth. By acknowledging the all-encompassing presence of God, we are invited to tap into their innate divine potential and co-create our reality in alignment with universal goodness. Through prayer, meditation, and positive affirmations, Unity Truth Students seek to harness the power of the divine within them to manifest positive changes in our lives and the world around us.
Join us this Sunday as Rev. Eleesabeth dives into a new perspective on this principle and inspires us to live with integrity, love, and a sense of infinite possibility.
