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

Lady Captain Planet

Thanks to a friend of mine and my constant random references to Captain Planet I decided to do this blog post.


I am and have always been a huge fan of Captain Planet. From Gaia to the little dude who had the power of "heart" I fell in love with the concept of youths saving the planet. Not to mention this hot blue man with green hair and rock solid abs who would swoop in to save the day! Oooh lawdy! 

Which got me to thinking about Captain planet's lady love. I mean, saving the world is hard work. I sure hope Captain Planet had a likkle lady at home to cook him a hot meal and rub his back and his feet with extra virgin olive oil. To kiss his temple and reassure him that every thing is alright. 

After all, every good man needs a good woman, especially the kind of man who takes pollution down to zero. And if for some reason he doesn't have a woman to keep his bed warm at nights, I would humbly fill that position, so that I too can play my part in advancing the welfare of the whole human race.

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."
