Chapter 27 » 27.10

Remember Jesus’ answer to the woman of Samaria: ‘Neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father… God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in Spirit and in Truth.’ In the depth of meditation, in the gathered meeting we rise above all limitations. Gone are the concepts of Quakerism and Vedanta. Gone are the ideas of being a Christian or a Hindu. All these concepts are valid on their own level. They have their place, but they are transcended when we merge our minds in Spirit. I believe this is what Jesus and all the other World Teachers wanted us ultimately to do.
