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.”
— The Story of Evolution

Dispensable

So i'm @ school now. Fukiage Koko that is. I visit this school once a week and normally have three classes per day... but not today. Yes, I was scheduled to have three classes and I had one this morning which went quite well if I may say so myself, then for my second class with the older male English teacher (the first class was with the female JTE, Maki-sensei, she's cool and shorter than me :) ) I ended up returning to the staff room before the class ended.

Why? you may be thinking. Was I ill? was I sent away for misbehaviour? yeh right. Nope my loveys. I was sent away because he obviously had no use for me and couldn't stand seeing me sit there half-asleep, half-starving, twiddling my thumbs (it's what I do when i'm bored stiff).

Now a little background info here, this said teacher, a teacher of English mind you, conducts every class in nihongo (japanese for you non speakers). I mean the only time English is even uttered in his class is when i'm speaking! So I guess today, due to the upcoming exams, they need to be studying and obviously me, the ASSISTANT LANGUAGE TEACHER, could be of no assistance. Oh well c'est la vie. Atleast it afforded me the opportunity to type this here rant on my blog. So, thank you Mr. Take-sensei, for NOTHING!

I just want to know one thing, if unnu wasn't gwine use mi tideh, why unnu nevah mek mi tan a mi RAAS yaad!!!

That's it from me for now

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."
