The Quaker Vision (in Universalist Terms)



God/SPIRIT
God/Spirit is the source and the life power animating all that exists
 
ORDER
There is an order/logic to all that exists that is established by God/Spirit
 
RELATIONSHIP
We are in relationship with God/Spirit and all that exists
(This can be either right relationship or dysfunctional relationship)
 
IMMEDIATE AND DIRECT ACCESS
God/Spirit is present and directly available to everyone inwardly and spiritually
 
Internal transformation
If we turn to God/Spirit and allow this power to work within us we can experience an internal spiritual transformation that brings us into harmony with God/Spirit, each other and the order of creation.
 
External transformation
Internal transformation leads to external transformation. Being in harmony with God/Spirit and the order of creation reveals itself in a transformed state of being in the world.
 
WHOLENESS/DYNAMIC HARMONY
Wholeness/dynamic harmony is established progressively and incrementally as each part of creation is transformed and brought into line with God/Spirit and the order God/Spirit has given to creation.
