“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!”
—William Hutchison Murray

George, having healed from a cancerous tumor in his throat in 2015 says this about his experience of daily radiation with a full face mask to hold his head in place during treatment.
"For me, the mask is a metaphor for my life. As I would have the mask attached to my face, I would look to see what thoughts, attitudes and emotions gave rise to the cancer. As the mask was removed, I let go of all resentment, regret, guilt and shame and I step into a life of joy, happiness and love."Learn More
