"Once you decide on a course of action based on your beliefs, it is as if the Universe opens up resources for you to achieve your dream. Effort must be put in to take action towards those dreams, and then the right people, places and necessities will be drawn to you - assisting you along the way. It is as if you started the journey alone, only to later realize that others were there with you. You just weren't as aware of their presence then because the senses had not yet been awakened to that greater reality.

"The truth is, we are never alone when we are brave. Others have gone before. Courage is the birthright of every person who heeds the call to conscience."
