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 towards 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


Mother Earth's Commandments

The Ten Commandments 
of Our Mother Earth

1. Thou shalt love and honour the Earth,
for it blesses thy life and governs thy survival.

2. Thou shalt keep each day sacred to the Earth
and celebrate the turning of its seasons.

3. Thou shalt not hold thyself above other living things
nor drive them to extinction.

4. Thou shalt give thanks for thy food
to the creatures and plants that nourish thee.

5. Thou shalt limit thy offspring
for multitudes of people are a burden unto the Earth.

6. Thou shalt not kill
nor waste Earth's riches upon weapons of war.

7. Thou shalt not pursue profit at the Earth's expense,
but strive to restore it's damaged majesty.

8. Thou shalt not hide from thyself or others
the consequences of thy actions upon the Earth.

9. Thou shalt not steal from future generations
by impovershing or poisoning the Earth.

10. Thou shalt consume material goods in moderation
so all may share Earth's bounty.

borrowed this from the innernets. It succinctly exemplifies my present frame of mind.

Love the Earth and live. Hate her and you will surely die.

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."
