True religion consists of developing that attitude of mind which results in seeing One Infinite Existence pervading the universe; then one could live in the world and yet not be of it, and at the same time one could be in harmony with everyone and everything; then one could attend to all worldly duties and affairs and yet feel completely detached from results.
I belong to no religion. Every religion belongs to me. My own personal religion is of my being the Ancient Infinite One and the religion I teach to all is love for God.
If religion does not help man to emancipate his soul from spiritual bondage and realize God, it has no useful purpose. Then it would be time for religion to go, for God to come. Therefore I am not interested in founding a new religion. The world is already divided by numberless sects, each with its own dogmas and beliefs.
I have not come to set up another cage for man, but to impart to the world this illimitable Truth, and therefore I intend to bring together all religions and cults like beads on one string and to revitalize them for individual and collective needs.
The religion I give, touches the knowledge of the One behind the many. The book that I make people read is the book of the Heart, which holds the key to the mystery of life. As for ritual, I teach humanity to discriminate, to express its true life and to live the religion which it feels. I bring about a happy blending of the head and the heart.
