      Note/s:
      • Author's Note: Once you accept the existence of God-however you define Him, however you explain your relationship to Him-then you are caught forever with His presence in the center of all things. You are also caught with the fact that man is a creature who walks in two worlds and traces upon the walls of his cave the wonders and the nightmare experiences of his spiritual pilgrimage.
