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.”

Birth Month -- Re:Birth


It's June!!! and you know what this means??? It's my birth month!!! Yaaaaaaaaaay!!!

This year is especially significant to me as I celebrate my 25th year walking amongst the "living" on Mother Earth. A quarter of a century later and here I am. Almost 9000 miles from the land of my birth and hopefully 25 years wiser and more enlightened than I was at the beginning.

It has often been said that life is a journey. Be it physical, emotional, spiritual or an amalgamation of them all. My life's journey has taken me to this place and this time right now. Everything that I have done or have not done in the days leading up to this very moment were already planned and ordained by the Universe. I am merely here to enjoy the experience, basking in the knowledge of just being, feeling and appreciating life in all its splendour.

I am blessed to have made it this far despite the potholes and the detours. I truly believe that I am currently on the path I need to be to realising my true purpose here on earth. Knowing this, as I prepare for my transition into my next 25 years, will surely make the steps I take and decisions I make from this moment on more ordered.

In 26 days I'll file away my past 25 years, the disappointments, the failures and mistakes, the ego-trips and the hang ups and the situations I thought were outside of my control. They are all things of the path and I will no longer allow them to keep me from my happiness.

I have finally come to terms with my existence. So in exaltation of this acceptance I'll be dedicating each day leading up to my birth day to an Insight. An insight into myself and my life up to this point and my hopes and dreams for the years to come.

Happy Birthmonth to me!

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."
