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.”

Worst Blogger Ever

I must officially be the worst blogger on the face of the earth. I mean for someone who has so much to say why is it so difficult to just update this damn thing? It's the procrastinitis I think...it's been flaring up alot as of late.

Even though truth be told I have been so busy lately I barely have time to sleep muchless write a blog. Maybe blogs aren't for me...maybe i'm just supposed to stay inside my head...or maybe i'm just making up excuses again.

Alas I shouldn't be too hard on myself...after all I have been writing just not broadcasting...

Anyways I owe it to myself to try atleast to catch up on documenting my Japan Experience for future reference. So I shall make a vow to incrementally update the events of my life from the last rant about Japan up to the present. Just the important stuff though....and the occassional photograrph.

I'm thinking of the following sequence:
  • The Office i.e. my experience"working in Japan"
  • ALT life - teaching English to kids who don't wanna learn it plus the occassional random statement that warms my heart
  • Taiko - my immersion into Japanese culture & my new obsession, concert and all
  • Life in Japan - in general, how i'm living etc.
  • Any other random nonsense that comes to me

So basically I have a whole lot of shit to write and no idea how or where to start but I suppose this is some sort of a start.

Hopefully my next blog will be sometime within this week...hopefully...

My back hurts and i'm tired...

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."
