Escape to a higher order

A glimpse of an empowered Africa through the eyes of Enshrine’s Caryn Darley   “Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny – he has something to fulfil, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed.  You are not here accidentally – you are here meaningfully.  There is a purpose behind you.  The whole intends to do something through you.” (OSHO – Creativity: Unleashing the forces within: 103)   During times of transition there are those Read more...
