At the same rate, I have been encountering a number of individuals who say very negative comments about various groups of (8 comments)

" ~Benjamin Franklin Feng Shui says to review your past in order to gain insight into your current life situations which will help you prepare for the future. Many times you will hear spiritual leaders speak about living in the moment, which is excellent advice. But sometimes this message becomes misinterpreted. Living in the moment does not mean make foolish choices because you have 'one life to live,' it means the choices you make today create the paths for tomorrow. Remember your thoughts (5 comments)

What does each color, form, shape and the placement of these various elements on canvas (0 comments)
