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.”

27

The birthday post that should have been. Better late than never. 



This particular Earth Strong held much meaning for me:
27 on the 27th.

2 and 7 both being powerful numbers, their sum even more powerful.

I sought to celebrate life. Oneness with the Universe.
I implored friends and loved ones to Plant a Tree. Hug a Tree. Be a positive part of this life cycle.
We all need to play our equal parts.

Culminating in a small(ish) dinner with loved ones.
I shared food, laughter and love.
and that's all one can really ask for in these times.
(For those of you who are on the Facebook you can see more pics here)

Here's to another revolution around the Sun. And much much more to come!

27 and still going strong.

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."
