What is Evolution?

“We began as a mineral.
We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again.
That’s how a young person turns toward a teacher.
That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively.
Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”

Beach is my Religion

Fuck Love! Why not go to the beach and enjoy the serenity of mother nature, instead of sitting in a pew wondering who is wearing what and who is fucking who. Why not indulge in the wonder of creation where water meets land and yin meets yang. Be renewed by the sea as the tide washes away your every transgression. Experience the indescribable feeling of staring into the vastness of the sky and inhaling the mystery that is life. Be carried away by the waves so you can truly appreciate the fragility of life. It is then and only then that you will be able to understand the bounty of the Almighty Creator and be washed away by the humility of mortality.

This is where i've been...



Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
