Not Feeding Self-Deception

Book coverWe may talk about elegance and beauty and such highfalutin stuff as rulership. But we are fundamentally concerned with not feeding our own ego. It’s more about settling down and having a home. Maybe you should get married. Find out about taking care of a child, having a husband or a wife, having a home. It will change your entire life! Of course, not everyone has to get married. The main point is not feeding one’s self-deception.
