Tolerate Things That Slap You Down

What I want to achieve with this article is something I have been dealing with in my many consultations with people over the years. People who have lived through dire human situations, I have found, are mostly too reluctant to speak out about the details concerning their circumstances.

As humans, It is our common destiny, for the believer and agnostic alike, to sooner or later, transcend the temporal and enter the realm of pure energy, namely death. In a way, sharing that which will eventually become inevitable, will make the journey a more familiar one somehow.

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.
