Hepatitis C Raising Awareness in South Africa

A Crisis... can be a blessing...

In the Chinese vocabulary, crisis consists of two words. Danger and Opportunity. A crisis comes to you to show you that it is time for a change. What you choose to do with it is up to you and therein lies the two different outcomes.

Will you choose wisely and courageously acting from awareness opening up to new possibilities?.. or will you act on fear and confusion creating great destruction for yourself.

Follow a path that opens your heart creating beauty is always a good choice... Listen deeply, trust in yourself, and you will know what to do next time you are in a Crisis...

May you be strong... courageous... filled with clarity this day... and all days to come...

With love and light... Thoor...
