Every single day I learn a lesson.
I fail, I succeed and I make careful note of what NOT to do next time.
And what is right, I improve on with each day.
I've learnt how to walk, to talk, to run, to cry, to laugh, to smile, to write, to read, to learn, to teach, to conjugate and deduce the mysteries that lie beneath the tapestry of life.
I am learning how to lose battles for the greater good. Because there is a spiritual war which has already been won by righteousness.
So I learn to be steadfast. This race is not for the quick but for those who can endure. Good times and bad, happy and sad.
My heart weeps for the atrocities against Mama Earth.
When will we stop uprooting vegetation and cutting down trees?
Why are we so pro-death and anti-life?
I am learning to remain still amongst chaos. To roar in the face of defeat.
For I am already victorious. I claim it in the name of all that is good.
I've learnt that evil takes many forms. It permeates all things, it seeks to envelop your soul.
but only if you let it. If you feed anger, fear and doubt they will grow inside you like a tumor.
But if you feed love, feed off of love. Drink from a well of wellness and joy. Then all good things must be revealed.
We must all heal and be healed.
I've learnt to find my way, even in the valley of the shadow of death.
With no fear.

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 - Rumi, 13th Century
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."
