From my search for the good and necessary, I have come to the following convictions: I believe in one supreme and absolute power at the source of life; the cause of all living; and that this ineffable principle may justly and truthfully be named The One and The Good. Whether men call this Universal Deity, God or Allah, or Brahma, or Dao is of no great concern. For such terms and titles reveal differences of language, but not divergence of ideas. Man has come to know this sovereign good through the seeking of his mind and the longing of his heart. It seems to me, however, that believing in good and a God everywhere existing, and forever the source of wisdom, justice, truth and love, we must, in the end, come to the realization that all the working of this creative power are necessary, beautiful and virtuous.
