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 towards 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
Rumi, 13th Century


How does one gerow up?

I am hoping above and beyond all hopes that this is some play on words that I don't get because I've been living outside of Jamaica. Or maybe it's a word I'm not familiar with? Because I REFUSE to believe that the imbeciles at the Jamaica Gleaner really mispelled the word GROW. And in the fucking headline at that!!!!!!!! 

So until I receive clarification I will don my dunce cap and assume that the Gleaner is using some superior language in which gerow is an actual word.

Outside of that I would be left only to believe that the Gleaner editors hate their jobs and are attempting to sabotage the paper. 

See for yourself here --> GEROW  for maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me. 

I even refreshed the page...but it's still there! Please tell me this is a bad dream!!! Or maybe a horrible prank? I'm so flabbergasted I feel like therowing something!


So apparently it's wasn't done on purpose it was a typo see the correction here...

Wonders never cease!


still in disbelief as to the fuckry that is the Jamaica Gleaner

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."
