While you have no power over anyOne’s perception of your individualized self, you Alone decide whether to give those perceptions creative power in your world. As long as you are defining your self according to other people’s perceptions and expectations, you are living through the same mental conditioning that has formed your self up to this point in time – which may be effectively suppressing your own spirit/heart/higher truth.
The debate about whether humans evolved from apes is irrelevant to this moment, and only serves as a smokescreen that keeps human consciousness mired in the dualistic perpetuation of suffering.
Creation and evolution are not separate phenomena. Life evolves in every moment according to the perspective of conscious intelligence.
