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


Things Will Grow

Under ideal conditions and in spite of unfavourable circumstances -- everything grows. 
With proper access to sunlight and an ample supply of water, growth becomes inevitable.  

This is one of life's constants. 
Even when things feel stagnant and futile, deep below the surface there is infinite potential. 
At the most minuscule molecular level. 
Waiting for the right moment to evolve.

I suppose the same can be said for us all. 
Each going through our individual cycles of high and low; good and bad. 

Growth begets Evolution. 
Inching us evermore towards a better version of our selves. 

At times it can feel like mere survival. 
While some seem to thrive others struggle just to stay alive. 

Yet with each passing day, with the rise and setting of the sun; the wax and waning of the moon. 
We continue to grow. 

All things. 

Bright, beautiful, 
great, small. 

Created for a higher purpose. 
An extraterrestrial destination. 

For what is growth but a continuous opportunity to express and experience love, life and ultimately -- light. 


am growing ever still

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."
