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 Monkey Commandments


In ascordance with my previous post. I present to you:


The Monkey Commandments.


I. Thou shalt build, anything, anywhere at any time, for the Dawdy seddeth so.

II. Real Bad Men shalt not moggle in shorts. merely straight jeans and cut off foot pants.

III. Thine toothbrush is for thine Clarks first, teeth second.

IV. Thou shalt use bleach on thine face and body but ne'er on thine teeth.

V. Cake soap maketh thine face cool. Wash in it often.

VI. Thou shalt not wear Nautica for these art for sailors as Polo art for Tiger for he art the golfer.

VII. A bag of sneakers shalt leadeth thou to cheesy foot.

VIII. Through all of this, maketh sure thou doth not boweth for thine Clarks.

IX. Rocketh thine shades to the limit, thine rosary chain - the purest and thine G-Shock watch -timeless -- as it is done in Portmore so shall it be done in Uptown.

X. Above all else, I say unto you, honour the Gaza til the end of thine days.


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."
