"My word, my lecture today, apparently is only for you, but truly I say that it is for everyone, because its wisdom and love embraces all of the universe; it unifies all the worlds and all the incarnated and disembodied spirits. Come near if you need Me; seek Me if you feel lost." (Chapter 63, 30)

"Do you believe that all I have told you would be only for those who have heard Me? No, beloved people, with my Word I am speaking to those present and to those absent; for those of today, tomorrow, and all time; for those who have died, for those who live, and for those who have yet to be born. " (Chapter 7, 13)
