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.”

Sorrow

There is a certain emptiness that fills your heart when you lose a loved one. A gaping hole, a vacuum filled with memories and regrets. Tears come and go, a faucet of emotion. Joy is overcome by fear and mortality. Life is fleeting when faced with the abruptness of death. 

Experience runs at various levels of frequency, with each peak signifying moments of true joy and happyness. The quicker the pulse, the longer happyness remains; but with every peak there must be a descent. A valley of true lowness without which true highness could never be. 

The duality of our physical existence; a shadow on a moonlit night. Chanting incantations to banish fear. Basking in the radiance of a light that never dies. Within. Every living thing resides there. 

The light of Joy which came into the world to teach us how to truly love, each other. Despite our  many transgressions. Revealing our true potential. Filling each and every vessel with love. 

I pray for the strength to welcome each and every day with vigor and conviction. Knowing that while life may fade and transcend this physical plane its light can never be extinguished.

I give thanks for the joys and sorrows of human experience. The evolution of the Creator on Earth. 

I give thanks for elders.

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."
