"Human consciousness carries within it the gift of choice-making. 

We are self-reflective beings. And this capacity to choose what we get behind requires us to clarify the compass that guides us. 

We can take our pain for the world, which is the flip side of the love we carry, and let that sharpen this compass. This helps us go forth in ways with clarity of what we want to give while we are here on our home planet."

- Lydia Violet
