This new commandment guides us to:
A deeper level of recognizing our spiritual identity and connection with God;
Attain the great realization of perceiving the Divine within yourself and all beings;
Transform our consciousness and the way we do business, politics, protect the environment, adjust our diet, and care for all;
Distinguish the spiritual similarities between us all, which can bring about real peace in the world;
Manifest God’s plan for the world and bring the spiritual dimension into our lives;
Be a reflection of God’s love toward everyone;
Open ourselves to greater peace and harmony within.
The world is in need of a new direction in its spiritual development, and this 11th Commandment is given as the next phase to manifest humanity’s most elevated potentials.
