If I could have chosen a biological younger brother, it would be Dwayne: we are from the same soul group. I am old enough to see myself in him. We are strong soldiers on the road less traveled. It had been seven years since our last one-on-one, brother to brother, but as with all souls that are knit together as ours, it always feels just like yeste…
 
This is a story to remember when you are thirty minutes into your Turkey Day meal and you look around the table, and listen really well to what's being said; that's a good time to remember who's not being talked about, what stories are not being told about so-called "Thanksgiving."

Mastery is in the balance of opposites. This is a story of balancing the left and right hemispheres of your brain, so that you are manifesting from a place of mastery.
