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.”

Man goes

...in an interesting turn of events I've found a pun. So I figured I'd try my hand at a little poetry.

Here it goes:

A man goes as he comes.
A man goes wherever he wants whenever he wants
He goes into situations and new experiences with all the fervor that life affords him
He goes in search of truth; he goes with humility and he goes alone.

A man goes without fear and sets himself apart from all others.
He goes for justice and equality or he goes for nothing at all.

A man goes for what he wants. He has a goal and he doesn't stop until he attains it.

Then he continues to go. From bed to worse. A man goes hard.

As a man goes so he is. Continuously in motion, a man goes above and beyond all expectations.

A man goes until he can go no longer and even then, he still goes.

As for woman? She goes and she comes. ;)

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."
