Is there a battle between forces of light and darkness? Am I or you part of this battle?
When I first designed the picture above, I noted that our intellectual life takes place in a network involving multiple intelligences (human beings in physical and non-physical forms) in vibrational resonance.

This is why there is no … Continue reading What is Your Love Language?
