Universal Divine Principles of Truth
The following six principles are found at the heart of the great spiritual traditions of the world and form the basis of the core teachings of the I AM Spiritual Center. These principles, when embodied and integrated into our daily spiritual practice, are a pathway to self-realization, a conscious state of oneness with Spirit.
1 God is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, and omniactive. All Existence is the manifest form and activity of Spirit. This Presence is equally present in all space, time, places, and in all persons, as well as beyond time, space, and manifest creation. Ours is a holographic Universe in which every part—that which is seen and that which is unseen—is an emanation of the unmanifest Whole.
2 God is Absolute - The same yesterday, today and forever, constant, changeless, eternal because time, space, and form are variable and God is not. God is absolute because God is One. God’s nature is unchangeable.
3 God is Good, therefore Life is Good. Absolute Goodness is the substance, the source, and the supply of all existence. This aspect of the Godhead is always in integrity with itself, which means that it cannot contradict its own laws, nature, and relationship to its creation. The nature of God is life-enhancing, positive, upward spiraling—good in every way.
4 Every person is an individualized expression of the One Spirit. Every person is made in the image and likeness of God and is capable of awakening to this realization and giving expression to the qualities of unconditional love, compassion, wisdom, bliss, peace, and creativity.
5 The Divine Mind of God (Spirit / the Love Intelligence of the Universe) is the creative power of the Universe. Thought creates. Every person, as an individualized expression of the Divine, thinks and creates through the power of free choice. Through the exercise of free will, each person is able to choose and assume responsibility for their own soul’s evolution. Through this freedom of choice, all things are made new, the past is transcended and infinite possibilities are at hand.
6 The Universe, being Infinite, is in a constant state of evolutionary expansion. We live in a non-static, ever-evolving Universe, which is the source of our individual evolutionary impulse and our capacity to expand into our fullest potential (which is infinite). Each individual’s expansion contributes to the evolutionary progress of the whole.
