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 the universe and all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.

  1. One of my favorite book series was Nancy Drew mysteries. They were a very easy read and I cannot wait for the new series to begin this coming fall. My second was Angelique which was also a series in French set in the 1700’s if I remember well. BTW I forgot to mention another one of my favorite TV show (on your other post) was “Thierry la fronde” set in the 1600 or 1700’s also…
