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.”

Arguing with Idiots



I learned a long time ago that, as best as possible, one should not engage in arguments with idiots. Because from a distance, no one can tell the difference. This has never been more evidenced than on Twitter. Where the ignorant run free and frolic under the heavy veil of freedom of speech.

I try not to follow idiots on twitter for personal reasons. I'm a bitch. And I consider people who are OBVIOUSLY less intelligent than I, a complete and utter waste of my time. So I avoid them. Like the plague. Because I honestly believe that ignorance is an epidemic and it is highly contagious. And I want none of it. So I try to build up a wall of intelligence around me. Alas, as impenetrable as it may seem, someone sneezes and just like that, you're down with the ignoramus.

And before you know it, you're halfway into the most asinine "debate" with one of the most simple minded people you have ever had the displeasure of knowing existed.

That's when a switch flips and you realize that not every one you meet is worth elevating and that's when you just have to let it go. Stop responding, stop fueling their idiocy and just keep it moving.

Keep calm and carry on.

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."
