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 towards 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
Rumi, 13th Century


Choose Your Own Adventure

As many of you may know (or not know) I am a book lover. A very book lover. Before I knew myself I knew books. I cannot remember a part of my childhood in which I wasn't either reading a book, writing a story or running wild in my imagination. Creating my own stories, never-ending stories, submerged in fantasy. 

Moby Books were a significant part of my early (-ish) childhood experience. It's funny the things that your subconscious chooses to hold on to. I think I might have read at least 2 dozen Moby books by the time I was 7. 

As I got older my love of books never faded, in fact it only grow stronger. Another set of books that stood out to me were the Goosebumps series. Especially the "You choose the Scare" editions. 

I was intrigued by the idea of being in control of the story, the plot, the ending. Little did I know that  those books were a metaphor for life itself. 

For what is life but one big story, one big adventure propelled by our free will?

So today's blog post is dedicated to the great adventure that is life. Each chapter being an journey we choose to take. 


am on a fantastic 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."
