What is manipulation? The best way to define manipulation is with some examples.
- Someone who makes you feel guilty – Example: You aren’t fulfilling your parental obligation if you don’t give your kids ski lessons.

I recently identified when I embrace truth, I feel the same warmth as when I feel love. I realized the reason for this is because love and truth are both emotions that generate light which heals.
Finding truth is also a journey to become love based
Because truth generates light as love does, the journey to find and embrace truth is also a journey enabling me to overcome the
