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 Japanese Office Episode Next: Negligence

I hate my Office!!! Really I do... and the only thing keeping me from throwing a fit and cussing one whole bag a badwud is this blog here. Honestly. It's my sanity.

Here it goes:

Last week Firday was the deadline for the Tokyo Orientation. So I gave my supervisor the application on Thursday, giving him an entire day to get his shit together and send it in! I think this was pretty reasonable. I mean how long does it take to sign a form and send it in? seriously!

Lo and behold I arrive at my office this morning and he comes at me with the form, explaining that apparently he isn't the supervisor that is supposed to sign it and that he'd be sending it to the Kencho in time to meet the deadline this Friday. Now on the form it is clearly printed IN JAPANESE that the deadline was March 6th 2009. So imagine my frustration finding out that he has made me miss the deadline after I took the time to fill out the forms AND print them on my own printer using my own paper. 

I don't know what to do! I feel like screaming! And then they make a fucking fuss when I am 1 minute late but this fool can't manage to send in a form on time. So now I have no chance of getting considered for the TOA position and as such will be forced to find some other way to occupy myself this coming Summer. 

Oh what a cross tumble dung pon mi! Almshouse ting man! Badmind has been reactivated!

Update: Ok so maybe I overreacted just a little bit...he says he's sent it in...so we'll just have to wait and see

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."
