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

Time flies...

when you're having fun, giving bun, trying to come... to terms with new surroundings and such.

Which is why I haven't blogged in a while. My apologies to those who noticed my abstinence.

Nevertheless, I am proud to announce on this day much like every other yet unique in its own way, that I am alive. Yes. Living, breathing and giving Jah thanks for the ability to do so.

Yesterday, I pulled "Take Your Time" and suddenly realized that, despite leaving bits and pieces of myself halfway across the world and despite several disappointments and anointments, the moon has made one full rotation around the earth since I have been home.

and although I have yet to truly sow any seeds I feel seeds sowing in me. Seeds of transformation.

As long as I can keep fear at bay and as long as I continue to fast and pray, things will become clearer and clearer until not only time will be flying but

So will I.

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."
