To discover your true ‒ divine ‒ self, get rid of all your attitudes and thoughts that are not nurtured by love.

While growing yourself, always remember that you are what you think.

If you really want to understand someone, free yourself from your ego and become the person you want to understand.

What you get is the beginning of an in-depth psychological profile.
