Have humans evolved from primates?



This is a question I pondered a lot in the past without seeing that the answer was right in front of me.
I don’t think anyone needs to go into depth about whether evolution is real or not as there is so much scientific evidence proving all living forms evolve and change over time. That being true, it is definitely possible that humans evolved from primates even if that wasn’t the case. Although possible does not necessarily mean probably and it’s definitely a far cry from actual.
Fast forward a few years and it can be amazing how what once felt like a question that would never be answered became, I can’t believe I didn’t realise what was right in front of me earlier!

For hardcore religion it seemed like the mere idea of evolution went against the idea of creation when in truth, evolution is the very core of creation. Many have come to realise it’s highly unlikely that some Supreme Being beamed fully fledged human beings onto the earth’s surface and announced, “Go forth and be good and I’ll send someone soon to tell you all the rules you should live by!”
Hehehe……..Oh, I love a good Bible story.
Yep, a bit of human interpretation and exaggeration makes for a great story all right!

All I’m saying is the creative energy that pulses through all things does not send beings that have not yet evolved into a specific environment with a long list of rules they are then required to adhere too. All life forms evolve, and there is no evidence that contradicts this truth anywhere in this Universe. So we have definitely evolved to become what and who we are now as human beings, but the question is, did we evolve from primates that are currently living on this planet now?

There’s the answer right there!
When any species evolves it changes in response to that species needs which are related to adapting more efficiently to the environment and therefore creating a better life experience and improving their chances of survival. If a species is not separated by long distances and different environments the evolution of that species will be complete in the sense that half the population will not remain as they are while half evolve. All will evolve in a similar fashion as long as their proximity to each other and the environment they live in remains constant. If we evolved from any of the present day primates that are living on this planet now, well they wouldn’t be here, would they? They would be the evolved us and therefore wouldn’t still be in their previously unevolved form unless there was a complete segregation of groups.

If a species is separated through proximity to one another and the environment they live in changes, over time there will definitely be evolutionary changes to each separated group. The best example on this planet of evolution through both species isolation and extreme environmental differences are the species that are currently living on the Island of Madagascar.
This does not mean we didn’t evolve from primates or hominids that were present on the earth millions of years earlier and the fact that we are even here says that we have, but it does mean we have not evolved from the primates that are currently living on the earth now.

I suppose one could say it’s a bit of a non-event in the sense that it’s undeniable all species evolve, hence we have also evolved from earlier less evolved species of hominids. We are truly not separate or superior to other species in this regard…….even though many like to think they are. Being an animal or a plant or even a planet for that matter does not make one more or less superior than the other, it just makes all life forms different, each coming forward with specific intentions and for different purposes. I’d like to see how superior human beings would feel without a planet to live on or food to eat.

In time human beings will come to understand more fully the origins of exactly where and how they came to be as they are now……..but the truth is very few are ready at this time to know the specific details of this truth for humanity is currently still riddled with fear and untruths that give rise to hatred, competition and violence. In short, humanity needs to make an evolutionary jump to the next phase of their evolution before this will be able to be revealed and accepted by the masses without strongly negative consequences.
This is exactly what is happening as our children that many have labelled as troubled, uncontrollable, strange, different, autistic, indigo, and sensitive are coming forward in increasingly large numbers. These new beings have altered DNA which is the next evolutionary jump for human beings. As these children grow they will be drawn to others like themselves whether they are consciously aware of it or not and it will not take long for this evolutionary change to be complete……..And it will be in as little as one or two generations!!!

And so it will be…….


Does the Universe have my back???


Big Bear
The Universe always serves us up what we believe in. So the question is, do we believe the Universe has our back?          Paulette De-Har.

When I speak of the Universe, I am referring to the pure positive energy that has created all that ever has been in the past, all that is now, and all that ever will be in the future.


It is not the intention of this post to argue whether we do or don’t believe there is a pervasive intelligence and creative life force behind all things…..I’m assuming this is a knowing whoever is drawn to this post already knows, or is on the verge of understanding and coming to know or at least is starting to consider???

Firstly, to answer this question it helps to have a basic understanding of how the Universe works. At its core, the main principle which governs how life unfolds for all life forms on this planet is simple, although when applied to the specific details of one’s own life experience in all its diversity, often becomes quite complex and not so straightforward, even when we know quite well how things work. This principle is known as the Law of Attraction and simply states, what one gives out…..They will eventually get back. Let’s assume this is how the Universe operates…..And it does!!! The idea that the Universe is evaluating what we are doing and deciding “Yes, they seem worthy to get this or that, or no, they don’t seem worthy of this or that,” becomes quite a ridiculous proposition. Although the Universe is always aware and interested in what all living creatures are doing, it is not arbitrarily sorting out who is worthy to receive “good stuff.” We are the ones that decide whether we are worthy to receive good stuff through the power of our focusing on what we are wanting positively, but we do have the complete free will to focus in any way on anything wanted or unwanted!!!

In essence, all life comes forward from non-physical pure positive energy to experience a physical life with the ability and free will to make both good and bad choices and to feel the full spectrum of emotions from high-flying good feelings like joy and appreciation, all the way down to rage and hopelessness.
The emotions we feel are communication from the part of us often referred to as our soul or inner being that has remained in the non-physical realm letting us know what we are currently creating in our lives and our future experiences. Positive emotions we feel are creating circumstances we are wanting in our lives whereas negative emotions we feel are creating circumstances we are not wanting to experience in our lives. The purpose of this emotional communication is to let us know what we are creating and to help us direct and focus our thoughts and feelings into the best emotional place we can find to get our creative energy moving towards what we really are wanting to experience.

The free will we choose to have would not be free will if someone outside of us had a whole heap or rules that we had to abide by or we wouldn’t get what we wanted…..That’s a very conditional type of free will and love. The truth is we are so free to choose, we can create very bad circumstances from the choices we make. This is not possible when we remain in the pure positive place of the non-physical realm because, well……it’s a place of pure positive energy, the energy that has created all things, and that energy is only ever good!!!
So an agreement is made to come forward to experience the full spectrum of what life has to offer by having the freedom to choose.
The Universe is not judging what we are choosing as right or wrong but is simply reflecting back to us in manifested form what we are giving out through our thoughts, words and actions and is also communicating and giving us guidance through our emotions. If we are listening and coming to know what this emotional communication means, we can start being the true creators we came here to be by creating more of what we really are wanting and less of what we aren’t really wanting.

In truth, the Universe does have our back…..Not because we kept to a whole lot of rules that were interpreted by human beings thousands of years ago that may have been initially and currently misunderstood??? We will know that the Universe and the Law of Attraction does not play favourites, that the playing fields are clear and fair for everyone no matter what colour, creed or religion we may be.
We will know through our own life experience that ultimately we are the creators of our own lives both individually and collectively and that we do it through the power of our thoughts and emotions.
And mostly we will come to know not one among us has been left on our own without clear and constant communication with that which we really are, the pure positive creative energy that is life itself…..

And so we are!!!

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree….

I’m sure many people have probably heard this saying, whether or not they agree with what it’s getting at, is another matter.
For those of you who know me, you’ll know I love thinking and talking about common sayings and the deeper meanings they can hold for us, that the understanding of has the possibility of improving our life experiences, and sometimes it’s just interesting to ponder such things….
My interpretation of this analogy is something like this, the tree represents the parents in a family and the apples represent the children of the family.
So, if “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” this means that when children are brought up in any environment, they will more or less take on the values of those that have raised them. This includes cultural norms, community and family values, and may include religious beliefs or customs.
Some may disagree and say, “No, I disagreed strongly with some of the beliefs I was brought up with and have ensured I have not done the same in my life,” which often causes a strong behavioural change to the opposite end of the behavioural scale so to speak, some thing I like to call “And so the pendulum swings.” (Yep, you guessed it, I’ve written about that one too!!)

Now back to our apples…. I’m sure it’s not hard to see for most that there’s much truth to this saying, for it’s not possible to be in any environment for an extended amount of time without acclimatising to that which surrounds you, whether you are a child or an adult, but it’s far more pronounced for children than adults, because on the whole, they do not have the ability to remove themselves from the environment they have been born into….well not initially anyway, and are often programmed very strongly from the moment they come forth into what is and what isn’t appropriate, by the older more experienced members in the family.

Now, whatever belief system we’ve been born into doesn’t really matter, but what is important is as we start to grow up and mature and especially once we leave the family home and environment, that we question the beliefs we’ve been programmed with and decide for ourselves what we wish to believe and how we want to live our lives.
This can often be a hard task, for as many of you will already know, the Law of Attraction will respond to the beliefs we hold and we will see evidence of it everywhere we turn, which we often accept as, “That’s the way things have to be, because look, the evidence is everywhere!”
Now for sure, that’s the way things may be for some people if that’s what they believe, but it does not ultimately have to be that way. It’s always a choice, but sometimes it’s a choice we aren’t aware we have, and even once we are consciously aware, it does takes some very good focused thought to change beliefs that have been held for a long time that we’ve seen much physical manifestational evidence about.
And remember, just because something is true, does not mean you must give your attention to it, a better criteria to use is….”Is this….I’m giving my attention to now something I wish to experience in my life???”
Some may say, “Why should I even bother,” And I say, until we have questioned how we have been raised and the beliefs that have been passed to us, we have not truly grown up, but are carrying on with what we were programmed with.
This doesn’t mean that all our beliefs need changing, for many things we have been taught are serving us extremely well, but I’m sure it’s true somewhat for all of us, some beliefs we hold are not serving us well, and as these beliefs are held onto longer, so the evidence we receive from the Law of Attraction becomes stronger.
It’s absolutely possible to move any belief we want to into a better feeling vibrational place, but if it’s a belief that has been held for a long time, like all of our life, it does take some time and effort to move them in the direction of beliefs that will serve us and produce more wanted results, because after all, we didn’t come to any of our strong beliefs all in one day, so it’s probably going to take more that one day to change them, but we can totally do it if that’s what we’re wanting….I know it!!

And so it is….

Can we receive respect…. If we don’t give respect???

Friendly Bear
                           It is not possible to receive that which we are not prepared to give ourselves.                                                         Paulette De-Har

No, true respect for another must go both ways. If we expect respect without giving respect, we will be sadly disappointed.

Some may believe the longer you have been here in this physical body, all younger ones should respect you. Well, it’s nice to be nice, that’s for sure, but you must give respect to receive respect, it’s not an automatically given commodity based purely on your length of time you’ve been alive, you get back what you give out.
You cannot condemn any part of society or an individual, and expect to receive anything positive back from them. No matter what generation we are speaking of, it often happens that previous generations focus on all they think the younger generations are doing, that they feel isn’t right compared to how they lived their lives. Its like some take it as a personal criticism of how they lived their lives?
Who among us can say that every single thing we’ve done in our lives was done in the best possible way, and that it’s the only way?
Of course most of us were doing our best, but we must acknowledge as we move forward in our lives, there are always better ways that we can do things, and that’s what our beautiful young ones are trying to do.
When we close ourselves off to the possibility of improvements, we can become very judgemental and set in our ways, as if wanting an improvement in life is bad or wrong?
If no one came forward wanting any improvement in life, what would be the point of life? There would be no point.
It’s a good idea to respect those we interact with no matter their age, gender, race, religion, or lifestyle choice, but if we do find this difficult our best action is to acknowledge we’re all different and let our negative judgements of others go. We all come from different perspectives, and although we may not want to choose what others are choosing, they are free as we are, to choose what they believe is best for them based on what they’re wanting and how they want to live.
Do your best to make peace with what others are doing, whether you like what they are choosing or not, and avoid focusing on what they are doing that you do not wish to bring into your world, for the Law of Attraction will bring you more evidence of that which you are focused upon, every time!
It’s true when things change it often brings wanted and unwanted circumstances to the forefront, this is the process of life and isn’t a problem when we know staying positive will work through any resistant we have and get us where we’re wanting to go.
We cannot stay in the past, things must move forward, we cannot control what everyone else is doing, but there is a choice of focusing on the positive aspects of what’s new or the negative aspects of what’s new.
When we transition into new circumstances, problems do arise, and with problems come solutions, but to see the solution we desire, we must be close to the vibrational vicinity of the solution, which means getting in a place where we believe we will find a solution.
We are all getting there, whether we’re aware of it or not, for in the times that are before us it’s getting harder and harder to be complacent with our thoughts as manifestations are turning up with increased frequency and intensity letting us know where we are, and in a sense asking us, “This is what you’ve been giving thought to, would you like more of it?”
If it’s wanted, yes, yes, yes, keep thinking what you’re thinking! If it’s unwanted, do your best to move to a better feeling place or focus on things in your life that are working well, but don’t stress about it.
You really can’t get it wrong, for every experience both wanted and unwanted has in it the opportunity of moving to better and better places, and as we start to see this in our lives and the lives of those around us, we really put ourselves in a position to experience more of the wonderful life we came here to live!!

And so our journey together continues….

One cannot truly live…Until the fear of death has been overcome….

I think it’s interesting that many people fear death so much.
There are many reasons for this fear, but they all come down to the same reason; We have not known or understood how we came into this physical world and what will happen once we leave this physical world, so I suppose it’s probable we would fear that which we don’t know and see as unwanted.
And for those that were brought up religiously and told they would “burn in hell” if they didn’t behave in a way that; The Source of Creation spoke of thousands of years ago, which someone else wrote about, which another group of people censored, which another person interpreted, through another person who told another person, that eventually told you, the rules you should live by?

And I say, “Holy Moses,” that’s a lot of interpretations from many different people, who in truth can only interpret what they’ve experienced or been told through their own personal perspectives, so even if the original Source was real, (and I believe this to be the case) interpretation through many others that have many different motivations that we could say….where not entirely pure, makes for a set of guidelines on how to live that’s more like a map you’ve been reading upside down!! I’ve done that a few times and have ended up in the opposite place to where I really wanted to be, but didn’t realise until I was well and truly lost, how off track I was!

Although I’m not religious, I respect the core of all religions, for at their basis, they all speak of a deeper truth about life and death, with intentions of sharing that knowledge and understanding with others, but as people with different intentions and vibrations added their interpretations to the mix, these messages have become so distorted they often do the opposite of what they were originally intending to do.

If we find something that works in our lives, I don’t care where it comes from, a religious scripture, the Internet, a friend, or your own thoughts, if it feels good for you, it’s good, if it doesn’t feel good for you, it isn’t. Only you can decide what’s best for you in your life, for only you know what you are really wanting and how you’re feeling about any given subject, and substituting anything outside of yourself to tell you what to do from a place of fear or doubt will always be a poor second choice to your own Inner Guidance.

So what is the answer to feeling better regarding death?
Well, that mainly comes down to what you believe will happen when you make your transition back to Non-Physical.
Firstly I think it’s a good idea to do our best to accept in a positive or neutral way that we will eventually make our transition, no matter what we believe in, this is a fact, so feeling bad about it does not improve our life experience, but diminishes it, so we may need to make a conscious choice to let this fear go. Most of us do accept this in a “that’s just the way it is” kind of way, which is preferable to feeling bad.
Some fear may come from not knowing what happens once we leave this physical body, and of course believing that everything ends and “we will be no more,” isn’t a very encouraging good feeling thought, for that gives rise to thoughts of “what has it all been for” especially for those that may have walked a difficult path.

If what we believe and think does not feel good when we think it, the only way to improve how we’re feeling is to improve what we believe by moving our thought to better feeling places. A strongly held belief cannot be changed immediately with one or two thoughts, but over time by gradually improving how we feel whenever the opportunity presents itself, is a pretty good idea. The more we practise moving our thoughts, the easier it gets, for you create power and momentum behind your new thought process.

If you have had the privilege to be in the presence of a person who is making their transition back to Non-Physical, this is a most wonderful and life affirming experience, for it’s almost impossible to witness this without feeling the movement of the Inner Being or Soul out of the body into something that feels more wonderful than anything we may have experienced before!
Some tell me they cannot believe in anything they don’t have physical evidence of, and I say, “Can you see air?” No, but…. Just because we can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
But of course, it’s always our choice, and as long as we feel good and put all our positive thought behind our choices, we cannot go wrong….
So believe what makes you feel good, not what others tell you or think you should believe for they are not you, they may know what feels good for them but they cannot guide you better than you can!!

And so our journey together continues….

Are you free to choose???

Are you free to choose every and all things in your life? That’s an interesting question, let’s look at that a little more closely….

So, every choice we’ve made up until today has bought you to the place we are in now. Some may disagree, saying many of the choices they made were forced upon them, either from parents or by getting in a situation where whatever choice was available to us, was an unwanted choice. Although this feels like we didn’t have a choice, the truth is, we always have a choice.
Maybe our choices were motivated from not wanting to experience the negative consequences others placed on us, or from making many choices that eventually lead us down a path where whatever choices were available, are unwanted, and although that feels like it wasn’t really our choice, it was.

Many of our choices come from being indoctrinated with our parents beliefs and ideologies regarding culture, religion, and community living. We could have chosen differently, but sometimes, when we are young, we’re not even aware there is another choice, and sometimes it’s simply not wanting to experience unwanted consequences that may arise from making a different choice.
We were and still are, motivated to different choices for many different reasons, whether it’s to keep someone else happy, to feel part of the group, to be liked by others, to be admired, or to be loved. Our choices, whatever they may be, for whatever reason, are usually based on what we believe is the best choice at that time, the choice we think will bring us closest to what we are wanting or what will make us happy.

It can be worth while, taking the time to ponder what it is that motivates our choices. For example, if it’s important to always have the approval of those around us, we put ourselves in an almost impossible position, for now our choices are based on what we think others expect or think is best for us, rather that what we think and feel is best for us.
In the beginning it may feel reassuring to have other peoples approval over the choices we make, but no other is really in a better position than us, to decide what is best for us, even if we think that they are.

Always seeking others opinions over what, how, and when we should be doing anything, erodes confidence, making it very difficult to make decisions on our own as we move forward through time. Taking advice from others can also lead to blaming if things don’t turn out as planned, preventing us from taking responsibility for our own choices, learning from them, changing, and making different choices where required. Blaming others may feel better in the short-term, but rarely moves us in the direction of what we’re wanting.

I’m not suggesting we should never seek advice from another, as it can be very helpful to listen to what others have to say if they’re positively focused, especially if they have achieved something you are desiring for yourself, but in the end, the final decision should be ours.

Knowing you are free to choose, and in control of your own life is paramount to really being happy, for as long as we believe anyone else has power over us, or knows better than you what you should or should not be doing, you cannot be truly happy.
For just as you came into this physical world free, you will leave this physical world free, and everything else in between, is your choice.
Are you making the choices that are in YOUR best interests??

And so our journey continues….

Are you using an outdated roadmap???

Try reading a roadmap from a hundred years ago and see where it gets you! I’m sure you can see fairly quickly, that is ridiculous advice. So it always amazes me how some people are still trying to live their lives by a book that was written 2000 years ago.
As with an old roadmap, most of the large landmasses and major roads are still probably the same, but as you get into the more specific small details of your map, almost everything will be different.
So one could say, the basic principles or major concepts within these books are still strong and relevant to the lives we are living today, but the specific details, when relating it to our daily lives here and now, are very different. And so it is, with many books and scriptures that were written by many different sages and prophets from the past.

It’s not for anyone to tell others what they should or shouldn’t take from these books, that is a choice made by each individual based on their freedom to choose as they wish. The criteria I would use to determine whether I would follow advice given by, not just books, but anything is… is it working for me? If it isn’t working in our lives, who cares who said it, when they said it, and why they said it? If it improves our life in any way, then for us, it must be sound advice, but if it doesn’t improve our life after giving it time, why would we continue to follow it? The only reasonable answer I can come up with for following advice that obviously is not working, is if we are coming from a place of fear.

Fear that we need to do something someone else has set out for us, or there will be unwanted consequences? This often begins from the first day we are born into this physical world. As children we allowed, without really knowing we were doing it, our Internal Guidance to be overridden by the people around us that had been here longer than us, and thought they knew exactly how, what, and why we should be doing this or that. I am not blaming anyone, I am stating a fact. Most were doing their best based on how they grew up and what they knew at the time, nevertheless, it produces a lack of confidence and a need to be guided in every little thing we do, so when something new comes up, we are often lost as to what to do, often searching for direction and advice from external sources.

This does not necessarily need to be negative if we can assess honestly how the advice we have taken is working in our life rather than blindly following without question, even when, deep down, it doesn’t feel right. That’s our Inner Guidance, our very own internal emotional guidance, that’s specifically and precisely giving us advice on any matter that is important to us. We had it when we entered this physical world and we’ve had it every day since.

If we feel we are not receiving any such guidance, it’s because it has been overshadowed and drowned out by all the advice and guidance that has come from external sources, often to such a point, we’re no longer even aware we have it.
If we don’t believe or even know we have such guidance, it can be near impossible to find without conscious awareness, and so we go from one source of advice to another, searching for something that fits us just right, but it will not be found from outside of us, what we are searching for comes from within us.

The best advice will always come from within you, and many of us are starting to access this wonderful Inner Guidance. We are now living in a time, where we are questioning the way we do things, and the beliefs that have been given to us by our family, culture, community or religion. There is benefit to all of it, even in doing things that are not working, for it is often in the process of realising something isn’t working that you become open to what it is that does work.
Such is the process and joy of this physical life….

And so it is….
