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.”

Udjat || Wedjet || Wadjet



Tattoo # 7 -- the Eye of Horus aka the 'Whole One'. It represents the Moon, protection from evil, intuition, wisdom, health, prosperity and light. (Others have taken it to mean the Illuminati... =/)

For me, the Eye of Horus symbolises where I am in my life now. 1/4 of a century after roaming aimlessly on this earth I think I've finally found my path. And while I am still not absolutely certain what the future holds I am aware enough to accept the unknown, knowing that what is meant to be is and always will be.

It is also no coincidence that as I embrace my clairvoyance I come to learn that the Wadjet is divided in to fractions of 64 and the fraction for 1/4 represents the eye in the wadjet symbol, not to mention my obsession with the moon and my recent preoccupation with the chakras (more specifically the 6th chakra, Ajna i.e. the Third Eye Chakra).



In my journey through this life I gather these tattoos as testaments to my growth, my experiences and my evolution. Call it an obsession, an addiction, an abomination whatever. To me they are artistic expressions of my individuality, what I have seen, where I have been and what I have learnt along the way. So as I continue to evolve and become more aware of myself I'll use these tattoos to help me document that journey.

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."
