attention and care of heaven. But humans have forgotten this notion of nobility and spiritual wealth. They have maintained criteria that are exclusively material, unaware that the forms in the world below reflect those in the world on high. By attaching themselves to physical appearances alone, they have forgotten that all wealth, beauty, grandeur and power of a material nature are pale reflections of an infinitely superior world which they must strive to attain.
