MY 2018 VIRILY BIO

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 unto everyone and everything . How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of heaven and earth, who is God, the one who gave us all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.
