8 "You will continually find yourself with opportunities to acknowledge that all of us are one until you make it a part of your life creed and act according to its promptings."

9 "Know that underlying the storm is peace, and under the chaos is order. Use the power of faith as your anchor: faith that there is a reason why things happen as they do; faith that you will make it through a crisis; faith that you are moving forward to a better place."

22 "We all are one and even if those specific words are not taught to us, we develop an inner sense of their spiritual truth."

23 "Faith is an active force – not a passive one – an invisible power, like love."

24 "Science and religion tell us that we are energetically interdependent; that matter and energy are the same throughout the universe. Our spiritual interconnectedness and intuitive signals form, in effect, an energetic Internet."
