Our Fundamental Unity:
The Meaning of Universal Sacred Music

Imagine a world in which we can travel from one country to another and encounter acceptance on the most fundamental level. Imagine a world in which no other person claims to have a superior way of being. Imagine a world in which belonging to a religious group means belonging to a community that accepts all other human beings as equal and eternal children of God. And imagine a world in which conversions are a practice of the distant past – conversions from one religion to another having become one of the ultimate absurdities; for how can one convert from being a child of God to a child of God? In that world let us imagine one universal faith – in which the spiritual knowledge of God’s universal and unconditional love – that we all carry deep within our hearts – is our guiding light.
