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
Rumi, 13th Century

Just a blog

It's been quite some time since I "just blogged" you know. Spoke about the random shit that make up my life.

So here I go:

Tomorrow I start at my new school. I've been feeling quite apprehensive about...

Nope. Couldn't do it. I don't get how people can just write about random nonsense. Now I can TALK random crap til the cows come home. But I just can't dedicate a blog to whats been happening in my life...I guess that's because so much has been happening in the past few months that the words come to me so quickly and I don't have enough time to rephrase them and then type them all out. So I just don't bother none tall.

I guess I could try doing it as a stream of consciousness but then I'm sure my hands would get tired and I'd probably get carpel tunnel or something like that....not to mention I've been excessively miserable lately (which can only mean one thing...Aunty from Red Hills)

I should really consider the whole video blog thing. It does make for easier rambling. But I guess I'd feel some sort of a way uploading my videos on YouTube for all and sundry to see. (We all know what happened to poor ole Scarlet)

I doan know yaah. I just feel haunted once again. The full moon a come don't it?

How mi know!

Oh well, so much for just blogging.

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."
