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.”

Choice

There is always a choice. Even when it doesn't seem that way. Even when it seems as if there is no hope left. There is a choice. To say yes, to say no, to admit wrongs and acknowledge rights.

To demand respect. To laugh, to cry.

To be responsible for things said and done; for every thought.

To be in control of the course of life. Destiny is dependent on free will.

Choose to breathe in the good of every experience and exhale all negativity.

Choose to persevere, to stare the future in the eye with no fear.

Make the choice to honour the now. Today, each and every precious moment.

Choose to release all anger.

Choose to have no fear, be free of all worry.

Choose to give thanks at all times.

I choose to not surrender my power.

I choose to be free.

InI

choose to love.

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."
