"…There is a mystical quality to choice. When it is made unequivocally and with absolute clarity of will, it will override all our conditioning, all our previous choices, and all the beliefs we hold. At that level, the choice we make can transform and change everything….”

–– Auriela McCarthy, The Power of The Possible
