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

New Year: Who dis?

Over the years (since I started this blog in 2007) my ability to compose content on a consistent basis has been ...well... sporadic and quite inconsistent to say the least; the very least. 

I'm going to chalk it up to a preoccupation with adult things instead of berating myself for not being committed enough or dedicated enough to, what has been for the most part, a necessary and welcome outlet for my thoughts, feelings and musings over the past decade. 

So this year I've decided that instead of making a grandiose gesture/ resolution to blog more I am simply going to do it. 

No pressure. 
No timelines. 
No deadlines.
No lifelines. 
No "It's been TEN years since I started this blog so I should do some TOP TEN lists about things that matter to me" (Hey now, that's not such a bad idea...)

If I feel compelled to share something then I will. If not, then I won't. 

No harm. 
No foul. 

Of course, this may very well mean that this post could be the only post I make for 2017. 

But it could also mean that, with no limitations or restrictions, I might actually find myself posting more frequently and that in and of itself is more than enough for me.

There really is no telling what could transpire. Some days I'm overactive on social media and other days I crawl into my shell -- reluctant to resurface. 

Adulting can be rough and with every day I process and grow. 

You know how it is. Life is like the Cockpit Country -- filled with hills and valleys. 

Nevertheless, I have been feeling for some time that I still have something worthwhile to say. 
Also, with all the changes on the horizon I might as well use this medium to share my developments. 

So stay tuned. 
Or don't. 
Your choice.

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."
