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



I know I'm not the only one whose parental is on Facebook. When it first happened I was appalled. All I could think was "there goes my social life." It meant the end of my infamous erotic status updates as well as my provocative breastilicious profile pics. I was at odds with myself. I needed a forum in which to express my lewdness and my sexual frustration!

Then I found Twitter. *cue heavenly music.* Lucky for me my mother hasn't and probably never will get the hang of Twitter thank the heavens!)

However, lately I've seen the percentage of parentals on FB increase dramatically. My mother AND her peers are now all over it, writing on walls, commenting on pics, updating statuses. It's madness I tell you!!!

The Onion.com addresses this new phenomenon in the following spoof:

Facebook, Twitter Revolutionizing How Parents Stalk Their College-Aged Kids

This stalker "E-Mom" was hilarious!!! Re: Twitter "you can hear you child's every thought, it's like a dream come true!" *DEAD*

My favourite part is at the end when the host says, "Now the only excuse for not knowing every detail of your child's life is having a life of your own."



will probably be a stalker Mom too IF I find a suitable mate to fertilize my eggs.

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."
