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

The Vacation that was...


So it's been a little over a month since I got back from my winter vacation and I haven't posted not one single blog since then. I suppose I was waiting for some inspiration, or the right time, or divine intervention. In any which case, something just said to me: "just post something right now, anything."

So here I am. Posting a few pics from the vacation. Most of the memories from this trip are on FB including the eventful Night Safari, the tours, the endless walking and shopping, the 'spa' therapy, the island hopping, the monkey attack, and the tattoo convention.

I don't really feel like copy and pasting any thing right now but maybe I will in the future.

That being said...here are a few pics from my adventures in Singapore and Malaysia.

That was just a glimpse of the vacation that was... back to our irregular unscheduled programming.

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."
