Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, 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, (God), the one who gave us all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.

  1. Great tip. I always knew that the heading is what usually grabs people first but sometimes it is difficult to find something that will stand out and still be about the content but an awareness grabber. I have been lucky at times like one article I wrote about a prison and chose the heading Being a Prisoner. I worked as far as people were curious about the content. I would say that at times writing up an article is simple compared to choosing the title and posting it.
