Sounds like fictional superstition to me, but sometimes I have felt that I always open a book right where I need answers. Like on the exact page.

It could be said "The aim of the theist is to unite with the creator, whilst the aim of the Dhamma practitioner is to be freed from the creator."
O house-builder, you are seen!
You will not build this house again.
For your rafters are broken and your ridgepole shattered.
My mind has reached the Unconditioned;
I have attained the destruction of craving.
