Conscious Evolution

and the Evolution of Consciousness

Life is change. You are not the same person you were as a child. The world is not the same as it was when you were a child. The Earth is not the same as it once was. Everything changes. Sometimes this change is slow and subtle, sometimes it is rapid and dramatic. But everything — people, society, geology, the whole universe — is in a constant state of change.

The good news is that you have a choice in the direction of your own personal evolution. This is not a pep talk. The words were chosen carefully. You are not a victim of circumstance. You have the power of choice. Will you use it? Or will you give it away?

If you choose to give it away, there is a long line of people who will be more than happy to take it from you. The government, the church, your employer, marketers, educational institutions, your landlord. Even your friends and family will be more than happy to make your choices for you.

It's time to take that power back. It's time to remember who you are. It's time to awaken the dream.

"Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future."
