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


Song of Songs: My Beloved

The Canticles also known as the Song of Songs and most popularly known as the Songs of Solomon is currently speaking to my heart and soul! 

Lyrics cyaaaaaah done!

According to Wikipedia, the Songs of Solomon celebrates sexual love. It gives "the voices of two lovers, praising each other, yearning for each other, proffering invitations to enjoy". 

The two voices are in harmony, each desiring the other and rejoicing in sexual intimacy; the women (or "daughters") of Jerusalem form a chorus to the lovers, functioning as an audience whose participation in the lovers' erotic encounters facilitates the participation of the reader.

The Shulammite in the story (a country girl)  represents the female version of Solomon; one who passed through a long process and now has been matured to become qualified to "work" with Solomon in his many vineyards.

She says she is "black" because she had to work in the vineyards and got burned by the sun.
Through verses she competes with her lover as they exchange flattering compliments back and forth. 
Stories of dreams and descriptions of beauty permeate the entire text as I continue to read.

Which then leads me to thoughts on courting and desire and the relationship between woman and man. 

And I have decided that γ„まから how a man displays his intentions towards me, through words, should primarily be comparable to that of the Songs of Songs. 

Him and me, singing praises to each other; individual reflections of the Creator. 

Words of love and adoration, precious nectar to the ears.
Complete and total acceptance. 

From his lips to my heart. 
"Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride; milk and honey are under your tongue."
- Song of Songs 3:12
Is it ever wrong to pursue your heart's desires? 

How do you differentiate love from lust? 
Separating Carnal desire from Celestial adoration. 

I remain guarded...

"You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain." - Song of Songs 3:12

Seeking first the Kingdom of the Most High WITHIN. 

Keeping what is mine safe and secure until the perfect time when my lover sings to me,

Eventually, I hope to experience the totality of affections and overwhelming feelings of love and sexual adoration cascade over my being like a huge never-ending waterfall.  

Niagara in proportions. 
Whetting my very soul. 

That day when I can say:

Nadya Dee

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."
