Nonsense Making Sense

Published December 14, 2017 by tindertender

Just Ask

It doesn’t have to make sense, any of it. Those who are doing the best they are able, with care not to harm others, is bathing in honor. This invisible bath often goes unrecognized by the bather, and unmentioned by those who notice it.

Often times when good deeds are seen, they are not commented on, for when too much attention is given to them, those who do little, look bad. (Now) and when I was younger I would come into a job and work so hard. I was fast and accurate, giving 110% and put all of my focus and ability to whatever task was at hand, always pushing myself. A co-worker once drew me aside and told me to slow down, that I was making the group look bad. I thought silently that this was just the way it would be, for I did not have it in me to be less, so that others, resting in this mode, would look better. I still don’t.

There are many people who are comfortable in a state of mediocrity. They want to put forth minimal effort while reaping the reward for success. The issue with this, is that while less is being done, more people need to be hired, hence, there goes opportunity for wage increases and promotion. Hard work is beneficial to all who are willing to team up and get it done.

All pieces of the puzzle, whichever format it may take, are crucial to the end result, none being more important than the other. So while it may sometimes make no sense at all, stepping back and looking at the larger picture, the beauty of it is apparent at all times.

Lady Justice ~ Keeper of the Scales

Published December 6, 2017 by tindertender

Staff hits ground, hard, it triggers an opening in the earth which spreads and widens. The land is separated in two, oceans from either side of the continent rush toward each other, uniting in the chasm created.

Many stories are told of those who do wrong, they and their deeds steal the ‘lime light’. Much energy is put into these actions, keeping them alive, empowering them. It is a stain on life, promoted. With conscious effort, attention is given, when instead, it ought to be given to that which nurses life, love and happiness.

When humans are instructed to hurt another, or are themselves hurt BY another, there is a disconnect from the greater, nurturing whole, a ‘non-caring’ state of mind occurs, a desensitization of the mind develops.

A bigger picture is showing itself to be equal on all sides, uniform.

Lady JusticeLady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents impartiality, the ideal that justice should be applied without regard to wealth, power, or other status.

Have you ever wondered why the Lady of Justice is … a lady? In today’s world, all over the world, women are subjected to harsh reaction from many men, of all areas of life.

The U.S. Supreme Court website explains some of the images of Lady Justice that adorn Washington D.C.:
Lady Justice is a blend of Themis and Iustitia. The blindfold with which Justice is now associated probably started in the 16th century. In some of the Washington D.C. statues, Justice holds scales, blindfolds, and swords. In one presentation she is fighting evil with her gaze, although her sword is still sheathed.

The “Keeper of the Scales” needs not wage war to bring harmony to the land. Those who say they uphold the law and then do harm against the mothers are spitting in the face of Justice. Odd … how they keep her in their courts as though they honor her, yet so many actions state otherwise.

We shall see … we shall see …

It Is All Worth It

Two doors opening to star filled skies. You say you’ve never felt like this before. Surely you have, although you may not remember, for you all are like me, and I am like you. Deeply, what affects one affects all.

Unconscious consciousGracious gifts we give to each other through our experiences. Knowingly or not, every event that has impact on your life will affect every life around you. People do not even have to be in the same room, the same city, or state, or even county. It is all interconnected, WE are all interconnected.

I see you laughing, I feel your joy, I sense your heartache, your pain. I witness the battle as it is waged and I see you standing, so brave, so strong. I want to be like you, I envision a world where everyone is … fighting for peace and freedom in a new fashion, yet an old one too, reborn into a world of chaos.

I am glad you are here to teach us the ways of peace. I am thrilled to find that these threads belong to me, are present within my being. Even though we are apart, we are near, heart to heart.

Thank you for showing me how it is done. Thank you for teaching me patience. Thank you for steadfastly showing me that perseverance for a cause benefiting all, increases, blossoming and healing.

I am blessed to witness you as you breathe. I am joined to you, our roots entangled through time. As time speeds up, and then slows once more, we arrive at seasons, where we can relax, and know it was all worth it.

 

Saying YES To Healing

Published November 25, 2017 by tindertender

Through the thick darkness a sliver of light appears, red and glowing, heat eminating from it. It widens, soon joined by another, the darkness shrinking. Small, low flames develop, the heat intensifies. Darkness is split in two, it disintegrates in this heat, this fire. A spicy aroma begins to permeate the room, not unpleasant, but causing a slight burning of the eyes. Helping We … It begins.

The Ring Nebula

Within each of us is a force that yearns to assist in healing. There has been much hurt and harm inflicted upon the human race, indeed, upon ALL life. Now is time for an allowing … a saying YES to partnering with that which will end the constant war, the war that has been brewing and killing since time began.

There is a need to stop self-poisoning with substances made legal and pawned like candy to an ailing society … alcohol, foods laced with chemicals one cannot pronounce, waters filthied with unknown compounds, pharmecueticals which mask issues caused by the poisons, numbing the mind to the connection which heals while cultivating new dis-eases.

There are alternatives available, should the choice be made to find them and learn a new set of tools for coping with a system intent on destruction. There is no one who can make this decision for your life but you.

Gloom and Doom vs Peace and Harmony

Published November 25, 2017 by tindertender

Days Gone ByReminiscing about the days gone by, she pauses periodically to let the memory fully absorb into her consciousness. She remembers the days of youth and the energies that were with it. Vibrant happiness, and also vivid unsettling emotions and experiences. Through the swing of it, she began to learn balance … oh how difficult this is, still to this day! She wonders about the future. Worrying about it will do no good, she knows this, so she tries to relax into the present moment.

Gloom has a tendency to wiggle into the center of the stomach, bringing with it doubt and fear. These are the energies which feed the snare we find ourselves in. Breathe … feel them yes, claim them, no. Often these emotions arise from an outside source, some event triggers it. Deeper into the core of us though, is peace, joy and love. The other, tries to override the naturalness of the truth of life.

Follow-your-dreams-and-use-your-natural-born
Dreams of a better tomorrow, hope in that these dreams are realized, coming to fruition at the perfect time … these things will determine the days outcome. Without hope for a spectacular future where peace reigns, havoc will bust loose and pain will overcome everything, everyone.

We can see, looking out into the world, that hope has been stripped away from a huge number of people. Is this a planned thing, or is it only training to solidify hope in the minds of the many? Who is actually pulling the strings here?

Learning how to manipulate the energies of the body and mind is crucial. Rather than being manipulated by the energies of the mind and body. We all know what it is like to walk into a room where the energies are full of a warring nature, it is thick, and can make us sick. THIS is what we are dealing with as a whole in this world, it is obvious as we look into the news, as we see the reality of it around us when we walk along in our day. Only by managing our own personal space, only by creating a calm atmosphere in our own mind, can we begin to see change … and when many people do this, the calm energies will unite and we will be able to see it on a larger scale.

Peace IS possible … if we believe it is …
if we work toward its reality in our own life,
it will then spill into the world.

Sowing Seeds

Published November 18, 2017 by tindertender

Driving along the highway, enjoying the sunny day, I see ahead of me on the side of the road a form. Upon nearing it I see it was once a Shepard dog, or something similar. I know animals are getting hit and killed all of the time, but this one struck me close to the heart, for I am a dog lover. (I love all animals, don’t get me wrong, but I sleep with dogs every night.) As I was alone on this journey, I internalized the scene, I tried to push it to the back of my mind but it kept swimming into my inner sight.

A couple hours later I arrived home to take a friend on a necessary trip to the store. On the way back from there, I spilled the beans, I described to a tee what had been rolling around in my head.

I sit here now, and I wonder why it is that there seems to be no solution from the spinning of negative, hurtful, or downright disturbing scenes, phrases and events but for the release of them out into the world, laid upon the minds and eyes of others.

There they go, now this scene is in their mind, lessened perhaps, for they did not actually see it, but the description is there, and we all know how detailed the mind can be when reading a book, or hearing a story.

If only there were a way not to put this type of thing into the world, while still releasing and letting go. It truly is not my desire or wish to propagate unpleasantness. When I sit and feel the life of me, those visions and thoughts still spin, they do so until I let them go.

As a younger lady, I journaled. I wrote down every nasty thing I wanted to say to some jerk, I spewed the emotional hurt or anger on paper. I would sometimes make it a letter and seal it in an envelope, putting on a stamp. (Letting it sit for a week before tearing it up). That was a great release and no one needed to wear it afterward … until the day someone decided they wanted to read my journals, which they ‘found’. They were hurt, because some of the things in there were telling of the pain I felt by some of their actions and the way I experienced it. I stopped journaling.

I began to harbor these things inside, and then they began to overflow into the world, and they were ugly, more ugly than anything I could have put on paper.

Now days I am not angry, but still, the disturbing scenes similar to this afternoon, and the pain I see inflicted in the world are still there, roaming around in my mind. I blog about some of them … but there again, they get all over everyone who takes the time to read them.

I see there really is a need for quiet, personal reflection and release. For in talking aloud, or typing on social media of any kind, it grows in the minds of others. So I consider yet again …

What seeds do I want to sow in this world?
