Several Ways To Do It

diff and easy 2

Eating isn’t always the easiest thing. Meals often require chopping and boiling or frying and baking. It is tempting to just throw a bunch of fruit and vegetables into a blender and drink the meal raw. Depending on how involved you get, the blender method can actually be much more nutritious. Complexity makes for an enjoyable form of gaining nutrition, sharing meals with friends and family, whereas the quick gets the job done, but is less pleasurable.

Life sometimes involves shortcuts. Rather than take the time to thoroughly explain what we are thinking, abbreviations are used and we wonder why no one understands. When listening, often we hear what we want to hear, picking and choosing certain phrases from the conversation and focusing on them, rather than the entirety of the what is being said. This too leads to misunderstanding and can create a negative emotional charge … or quite the opposite, when in fact we’ve missed the truth of what is stated.

Is it laziness, or lack of interest? Have our minds been chemically altered to produced apathy?

The skies are often filled with sprays which fall to the earth and waters. Scientists have reported that the foods we eat can be programmed to become edible ‘vaccines’. What are we really eating nowadays? We do not even know for certain, and testing is expensive. The average person will not be able to afford to find out, and if they can afford it, have no idea what to test for.

Mix whatever is being put into the soil, sucked up by the plants and fed to us, with wireless communication (microwaves), and you have disaster … all done while we watch the television and play with our phones.

Yes … I think apathy is bred … and people eat it up, much due to no choice, especially in todays world of secret agendas by government and sects of it.

Damages done … are the people willingly and naturally harming each other and their surroundings, or are the foods, medication, and sound frequencies programming them to behave in a certain manner? How many people actually care enough to think about it and begin investigating?

Tired Body, Tired Mind

Published May 10, 2018 by tindertender

There are days when physical labor is pushed, maximized to the best of ones ability. There are also days when number crunching and project planning is a continuous cycle. Hours go by and the muscles begin to ache, the mind starts to as well. Tylenol can be ones best friend after this work.

Efforts made are increasing, it is as though we’ve entered the ‘spin cycle’ of life. There is a wringing out of the ‘suds’, a cleansing is happening. Soon there will be an end to the spin and it will be time to dry, fluffing and making soft the load we’ve been carrying.

A blessing is in store. The effort, the stamina maintained as the sea of life is sailed, all experiences, will culminate in calm, it is going to settle. As the waters rage they are washing away the grime that has collected, and although it seems so much is destroyed, it is actually a purification. The sun is about to shine bright, bringing abundance in ways that have been missing for nearly everyone. As we begin to realize the intricate connection we have with the earth, the waters, the air and with each other, we will learn to ride the tide … not with fear and a clutching to anything we find for safety, but with balance and awe as the truth embraces us, and as we embrace the truth.

When things begin to sweep out from under, go to high ground … rise above it. Whether it be a tumultuous relationship of some kind, or some other experience … rise. This cleansing is going to happen, where you place yourself will determine how it affects you.

When too much is taken from a situation without anything given back an imbalance occurs. This is seen in many situations, it is in the products we choose, it is in what we put into the soil and water of the earth, it is what we allow in our lives..

As this shift happens, look around, practice really seeing others and how circumstances affect them, look deeply into your own world. Often, life is a story told and many of these tales are complete fiction.

Transparency, vulnerability … allowing the real you to shine will be the gift you came to share with the world. No one can be you better than you.

Understanding Energy

Published April 18, 2018 by tindertender

Energy ~ It sprouts from me in a very boisterous manner. Many people over the years have bypassed making me part of the team, or making good on promises to allow opportunity for advancement in life, or simply denying training and coaching.

embrace self

This journey has been somewhat of a solo one. I’ve had to be observant of those in action, those who received what I did not. I’ve studied their performance and behaviors trying to figure out what others saw in them, that they did not see in me.

As time passes I see also that those who left me standing alone look at me with new eyes, seeing something they didn’t notice before. Although I would like to say I would join the team, it is past that time now … for this soloing journey has moved me beyond what they could offer.

There are others though, who have something to contribute to this life long lessen I study. I am grateful to them. AND I am grateful to those who denied me, for without them, I would not have been so persistent.

It is still hard though, when someone states there is “no room in me” for … peace … or whatever else they think of. It really only tells me that I’ve got a lot more work to do … and with, or without them, this work will be done.

I suppose it is difficult for anyone to understand another. We are not in each others heads, we have not lived each others experiences, we do not feel as another may feel. Even this leaves room for acceptance and growth.

We may not always receive what we want, but we DO always receive what we need.

Let’s get to it.

Inner Balance

Published April 18, 2018 by tindertender

Life Is BalanceThere is this thought process going on inside of me … every time I am faced with the purchase of something new I always go for the lesser of the items … lesser expensive, less bells and whistles, less ‘pretty’ or desirable by some. I’m not certain if this is a good thing or bad … I’m not certain it can be classified at all. I think about my lack of need for luxury, preferring instead functionality.

Does this mind set come from a place of lack, or a feeling of not deserving more or better, or is it truly coming from a place where less is best and more is wasteful?

My waking dream is to some day have land with sleeping quarters (cabins) upon it and a main ‘lodge’ like structure where people will gather for food growth, preparation and storage, and for meals, laundry, and reading in the library, perhaps even a board game or two. Yet subconsciously I lean toward the small and confined spaces which are really only sufficient for one.

Breaking FreeHow to break free of the limited subconscious need to care for only self? How to widen this into a reality which cares for and is able to be supply for many? Certainly it takes a group effort for maintaining such a facility, perhaps it also takes a group effort to realize the dream into reality.

I am not a monetarily abundant person although I have extreme wealth. I have been blessed with life that leaves me with an ever clearer understanding of our connection and similarity.

As I notice my inner self pull away from contact, I also note the desire to break free from the shrinking away, to widen my truth into something that is more inclusive. There is a balancing taking place in me between solitude and an allowing of that which accepts the larger truth, which is that we are all in this together, whether we are able to acknowledge it yet or not.

Learning to value each other as we live, as individuals, affecting each other with our decisions, coming to realization that our choices determine the reality of the whole, in turn becoming our personal reality once more … it can be a challenge, yet is absolutely necessary for health and well-being of ALL life. It is a cycle, never-ending, always returning to us what we give.

With that in mind, what would you like to receive? Think about it, and then start giving, then await the return. Be patient, for there is something profound happening in this effort, or better said, this allowing. What you think you need may never come, but in gifting of yourself you’ll find blessing. Also important to remember ~ don’t be attached to the way your blessing will arrive, or what it will look like … sometimes what we want does not appear as what we need. Trust the Divinity of the Universe, it is always caring for you … for WE.

 

 

Harmony & Unity

Published April 8, 2018 by tindertender

UnityWhen the lone wolf begins to understand that strength lies in the pack, the magic happens, and swiftly.

For too long people have separated themselves from each other. Fear has kept us divided. Jealousy has hardened many hearts.

Understand that all things change, nothing stays the same. Embrace what each situation brings, the pathways they open in our mind, and deepness it brings to our soul.

Wave surfers

This life is an ocean with many waves and surfers. There is a rhythm which naturally happens when all are focused … in harmony there is unity.

A radiance emanates from people who are intent on achieving something. No greed, no need for power, simple solutions made successful by those who work together. A conscious cooperation which benefits the whole.

It Is Time

Published March 31, 2018 by tindertender

There is a time to hold the council of silence
There is a time to speak Truth.
There is a time when ancient seeds, long dormant,
Are once more planted and fully bloom.
When the future of humanity is being dreamed, created,
and activated.
Death begets new Life.
Humanity’s future will be different from its past.
~ Gaia Codex, Sarah Drew

This is Easter weekend. It is a grand opportunity to practice what it is we would like to see in the world. Rather than react to what people may say, or do, we have the option to hold empathy in our hearts for that person, or people, we perceive are doing wrong.

In the midst of pain it is quite difficult to release the need to be defensive, to attack and protect our self. Mind you, I speak only of the non physical here. Should our very lives be in peril, of course I do not recommend just standing there and taking it.

Before it comes to blows though, there is a point where a situation can be deflated, or escalated. Often the choice is ours, and with practice, we can become masters at deescalation.

In today’s world we see military’s who are experts at escalation, they always come to blows with whoever disagrees with their agenda. The entire planet seems to be on the brink of mass destruction … it is laughable really, how these ‘powers that be’ pretend to hold authority on peace.

Each individual, YOU, have the power to create that which you wish to see in the world. Through your actions and responses to those around you, a major shift can take place in the minds and hearts of others. Everything we say and do affects those around us, everything.

If this body was crafted 
from the same intelligence 
that created the miracle of the living universe,
rainbows, river banks, whale song and forest floors,
why on earth would I not listen, 
trust and follow its voice 
as it speaks through me? 
Surely it would only guide me in
the fullest expression of myself?
~ Clare Dubois, Founder of TreeSisters

You are that …
That which you create …
More powerful than you may have realized.
