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.”

Something more

Lately I have been imbued with the sense of something more. My on and off love affair with love affairs has left me weary of ever finding my twin flame. It seems as if every time I think I'm near I get burnt. 
Like a moth attracts to light I am incapable of detaching myself from repeating the same mistakes, over and over again. 

It's time for me to start wanting more. To start believing that I deserve more. More than everything I've been presented with thus far. More than lies and equivocations. I used to think that I settled for mediocre because there was nothing better out there. But now that I know that I am co-creator of my own experiences then I am only to be blamed. For lowering my standards and devaluing my self-worth. 

For allowing others to decide what's good enough for me. When they were the worst. Catalysts of my broken heart.

So I'm going to stop searching for "true love", stop waiting around for signs. I'm going to actively decide to get what is mine. 

And I won't settle for less than what is due to me. Something more than late night calls, momentary adoration, blatant disrespect and late night tears. 

So I'll tell the moon my fears and cast them deep into the night. 

Then wake to a new dawn, a new day.

Just Me, Myself and

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."
