Unity's 5 Basic Principles
There is only one Presence and one Power active as the universe and as my life, God the Good.
Our essence is of God; therefore, we are inherently good. This God essence was fully expressed in Jesus, the Christ.
We are co-creators with God, creating reality through thoughts held
Through prayer and meditation, we align our heart-mind with God.
Denials and affirmations are tools we use.
Through thoughts, words and actions, we live the Truth we know.
