Hello, I'm Andre' Hartslief "I finally discovered, that man's whole purpose in life, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life, is to express divinity through everyone of us.  How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and when we start removing those limitations. It is only, then, that the inteligence which  gives us all life, namely, the source, begins to express itself unbridled through us.

  1. writing for me is a past time that helps me to unwind my mind around things
    that’s going on in my life not that I like putting my life online to others to read
    cause I really have a boring life, where I don’t go anywhere to talk about, I don’t
    do anything but sit at my desk all day long working online with the sites I’m on.

    But as far as writing it helps me to relax & interact with others on their doings in life.


  2. Writing is a craft that we must practice over and over. I enjoy writing in French first and then translate it into English. It adds up when you think of how much I practice. Also, French being such a colorful and extra long language (when it comes to writing in French it can be a for example a page for French and half a page for the English translation) I feel that practice makes perfect.
