The universe operates according to a higher spiritual principle of life, growth and expansion. A principle is a rule or law that never changes. It applies to all people, everywhere, all the time. Gravity is a law that is demonstrated everyday in our lives. It is why we don’t fly off the planet and are able to stay connected to the earth. Laws are very important to know and understand. That is why we are discussing the five principles of Unity. These spiritual laws work the same way a physical law works.
A first principle is a foundational proposition or assumption that stands alone. Aristotle defined the first principle as “the first basis from which a thing is known.” The first Principle of Unity is the building block upon which all of our beliefs rest. Everything springs forth from this first principle. All other laws stem from this first one.
