19 "You are watched over and guided down to the smallest detail of your life."

20 "The divine self is one with the all, given in grace and sealed in glory." Ken Wilber, Foreword

21 "We have been secretly fed from beyond space and time. That's why we look for something more than this." Rumi, 'The Soul of Rumi'
