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 Story of Evolution

Bunched Panties



Panties bunched up around my ankles, I stand alone.
Shivering.
Cold.
Lost in the memories of sweet caresses, tender kisses, weakened knees.
Then you leave and the abandonment issues I keep buried beneath a heap of narcissistic sheets resurface.
They echo the disembowelment of my dreams.
I hope you realize what you do to me whenever you walk away.
I gather myself.
My thoughts.
My draws.

Composing what little dignity that is left.
Stolen moments.
Broken promises.
Open lies.
Why am I constantly surprised that you choose not to stay?

And every time you go away
A piece of me trickles down
then evaporates into the atmosphere
permeating my thoughts
staining my life
my existence

I fear not knowing when you will return

On my knees
I remain a slave to your needs
Drowning my pleas
I am defenseless to your love

and you
nonchalant in your approach
I am bewildered by your touch

taking away so much
leaving me with my panties in a bunch.

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."
