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

Thriller Night

It's been a while since I've blogged but I've been kinda busy lately doing Summer Camps and studying Japanese and what have you.

Actually that is partially why I've done this blog today.

Last week I did a summer camp in Kanoya, Kagoshima and promised the camp director that I'd teach the kids the Thriller dance....and guess what... I DID! and I have proof! See below.


(I'm in the red shirt btw)

It was fun. After only 30 minutes of learning the dance the kids were able to do it. I'm very proud of myself but especially of the kids for not quiting on me.

Hope you enjoyed my moment in the spotlight! Maybe one day I'll actually upload a video to my YouTube account. LOL.

can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try.

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."
