I See God in Everyone
...Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Matthew 22:39
All the great scriptures have announced this transcendent truth: Give, and to you shall be given. Every act carries with it a consequence, bringing the result of the action back to the self. Emerson called it the law of compensation, and Jesus proclaimed the same law, saying that as we sow, so shall we reap.
We also have been admonished not to forget ourselves, but at the same time to remember everyone else. That is, we are to view ourselves each in the other and behold God in all. When we realize love as the great harmony, then we shall all sing the praise of God.
I perceive the action and harmony of God in, back of, and through all things and all people. The Spirit is never separated from any person or event; It unites each to Itself, vitalizing each with the energy of Its own being.
Over all, in all, and through all is the inevitable seed of perfection which proclaims itself in all my relationships as harmony and joy and love. This seed is at the center of my being, and I am an instrument of its perfection. I recognize that I as well as others have a union with God which is perfect and complete and can manifest only as harmonious action.

“One Power”—An Anthem for the New Humanity
Science of Mind magazine’s theme for August 2012, “Shapes of Oneness,” is beautifully expressed in the lyrics of the song “One Power,” by New Thought composer Daniel Nahmod. “One Power,” one of Nahmod’s best-known compositions, was written in 2000 and released in 2002 on his CD of the same name. “I was raised in a kosher Jewish home,” Nahmod says, “but I was never comfortable with the exclusion and exclusivity inherent in traditional religion. ‘One Power’ took nearly two weeks to compose, and represents my personal belief that kindness, compassion, connection—love—is at the heart of all religion, all faith, all humanity, all life. I’ve never been very interested in what people call their ‘God.’ I’ve always been far more interested in how they treat themselves and how they treat others. In fact, I call my ‘Sacred Love’ hymns ‘Hymns for Humanity,’ for my intention that all the world—all people, all cultures, all faiths—might one day come together to pray in song to the same sacred source. ‘One Power’ is evidently something that I came to share with humanity, my own personal mission and vision and message...It’s a song that I’ll sing for anyone, anywhere, as long as I am able.”
Nahmod’s extraordinary, award-winning music is performed in New Thought centers as well as in houses of worship of numerous other denominations around the world. He has performed his beloved inspirational songs for over a million people representing nearly all of the world’s major faiths. Nahmod’s 15 CDs have sold nearly 100,000 copies, and his music has been heard on NBC, FOX, MTV, CNN, PBS, and many other television networks. In addition, countless music ministers, vocalists, and choirs have performed and recorded Nahmod’s profound compositions, including “One Power,” “When I Pray,” “Get Ready My Soul,” “Love Is My Decision,” “Last Song,” and many more.
