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.”

Purgatory

So I've been immensely preoccupied lately. I haven't even been tweeting as often as I used to. Which must mean that I've been less idle. I tend to tweet non-stop when I'm at school with nothing to do and the twitter page in front of me. Random mind farts. But recently not so much. This might be partly due to my new fascination: tumblr. I like it more because I can be me without having to wonder who sees it. It's called Inside the Mind of Nadya Dee and that's exactly what it is. The things that float to the surface of my subconscious and stay there...sailing on the plane between reality and fiction.

I write more "poetry" over there as well. But still that's no excuse for neglecting my blog. my baby. my everything.

Sure I'm not an avid blogger. I take month long breaks, write stories sporadically and make lots of promises I don't/can't keep. But I'm trying.

And as soon as I find an equilibrium between twitter, blogspot and tumblr I'm thinking of jumping on the youtube bandwagon. But not until I figure out what the hell I'd be vlogging about.

That being said, I've been stimulating my mental a lot more recently with books and vids and certain elevated conversations which have helped to lift me out of the mundanity that my life was seemingly becoming.

But I'm thinking I'm gunna address each of these levels of elevation individually. In due time.

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."
