Shadows In The Night

He walked in front of me. He was yelling to no one in particular about how mad he was, reaching in his jacket and half pulling out a billy club, and returning it, yet not taking hand off the weapon. As I walked past him he shouted some pretty nasty stuff about me … I pretended not to hear. He is trouble waiting to happen this night.

I warned the lady at the hair salon to keep her wits about her, to pay attention to her surroundings. She had to walk home, and that crazy talking man had been going the direction she needed to go. The one remaining was nervous as she was now alone, or would be once I left. There is something wrong with a company that works a schedule in which a young woman is left to run the shop alone after dark, especially here, especially now.

~ Lock the doors while in the car.
~ Keep your home locked and the windows too.
~ Be aware of what is going on around you.
~ Listen to your instincts.
~ Trust yourself.

Times are changing and there are a number of people in this world who do not have access to medications, counseling, family or friends. With the line thinning between light and shadow, much will be occurring right out in the open.

Be safe, all.

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.

Who Gives A Crap?

who gives a crap

“How well do you know her?”, she asks. They are in deep conversation … “She talks about controversial topics, should people listen and care enough, they will make change. They will ask her about waste and she will tell them.” As I listen to this conversation I write it down to ponder the following morning, which is right now.

While here on this planet, it is sacred duty to care for the world. This world grows trees and plants which supply our very next breath. The waters run from deep within the earth and hydrate a body with necessary minerals, and soil also grows nourishing, organic foods which maintain body and mind health.

We see, when we pay attention, what has become of the water supply, the earth bleeds goo as corporations who want to be ‘filthy’ rich suck the life blood from deep with in the planet, this is permitted by others who feel the same as they. The forests which clean the air are hacked down and not replenished, the air overhead is sprayed with chemicals we can only guess of. There are some who have stepped forward to warn us, but they are discredited by the wealthy who own the media, who play the game of destruction.

Who Gives A Crap products are a step in the right direction should we desire to assist in the slowing down of this ruination. My hope is that you, too, care enough to evaluate your life and make changes where you can. These changes need not be dramatic, they can be as small as recycling, buying used and refurbished items, turning off the lights when not in use, growing your own food, distilling your own water and using stainless steal drinking containers rather than purchasing plastic bottles of stolen waters. Small changes such as observing your speech throughout the day and then deciding if these are the seeds you truly wish to plant in this world for future generations.

What examples will you embody and then give to the world?

People United

Published November 15, 2017 by tindertender

What happens when a concerted effort is placed upon the success of a thing? When people come together in a conscious exertion of power ~ very little can deter them.

people united

One has to admit it can be quite amazing when citizenry embraces their truest power, united. The force which proves itself to be nearly unstoppable, especially moral or mental strength, can actually end hostilities we see in the world.

Love is the power that holds together everything.
Deepening awareness of the natural world, it becomes
easier to see our connection to it.

“Nature. Love. Medicine. Healing. Reciprocity. Generosity. These capacities, taken together, generate a spirit of community, aspiration, togetherness, virtue, agency, meaning and purpose. We would be utterly lost without them. The integration of these capacities, taken together, is the source of all our good works. With the magnitude of the challenges that face us, there is no greater urgency than to understand their significance.”

Deep Sorrow

Published November 13, 2017 by tindertender

I lay my head on his shoulder after I give him a visual on how people treat each other, and I sob. I cry out from deep within my heart an all encompassing sorrow, for I see, and tell of, the great disconnect between people in the world. One after the other ‘scams’ to gain while knowing full well it depletes someone else. This life is not about simply living,  but how great we live. Doing well while others suffer is not greatness, it is the most heartbreaking cause of grief … watching people destroy one another, seeing the lack of care.

A Free Ride

Published November 9, 2017 by tindertender

That’s what they’re after. That is what they have been taking advantage of all of these years … riding upon the backs of people who are full of integrity and care, who allow them to piggy back simply due to the compassion which resides in their hearts. There is a time though, when the load must be lightened. Constantly giving to those who consume, who take relentlessly, is no longer an option.

If you are one who has been the caregiver of an energetic vampire(s), you know full well what I am saying. Too long you have given, given so much that you have depleted your reserves, to the point where little remains for yourself.

They disrespect you as you allow them to walk upon your spirit, your soul. They laugh and tell themselves how smart they are, getting you to behave as they wish you to. But you see now … you see more clearly than you may have ever seen. You also recognize that self care is not selfish, regardless of what the takers want you to believe. You know that what they say is not your personal story.

You understand that the ending of a cycle is coming to a close, rapidly. You sense that the beginning of an era is upon you … upon all of us in the world. With eyes and mind wide open, you see the changes occurring in the masses, you relate to them, for these changes are also occurring in you.

Giving a free ride to those who choose not to work toward wholeness, preferring to be leeches of the world, does no one any good. The world needs you to rise, to shine like the magnificent spark of life you are. Take off the tether, walk your journey as it is meant to be walked. Give yourself permission to be free.

The Sleeping Giant

Published November 6, 2017 by tindertender

Inner PowerShe walked beside her, listening as she was being verbally attacked. She felt her blood turning within and then … something snapped. She leaned into the verbal spewing, it seemed she grew 3 inches, shoulders broadening. The eyes of the one spraying poison from her mouth widened, she became silent.

This strange and terrifying energy is ‘in check’ most of life, never exploding in an effort to do harm, yet it is available for use in the need of defense.

He began the beating, and growing tired of this repetitive mess she retaliated. She threw everything she had into letting him know this was not going to be tolerated any longer, he ran from her as she beat him about the head and neck with her stick. He never thought he would bear witness to this wild defense, he was taken aback, this tough man. Witnesses told her of it afterward, she had no memory of it.

This world is full of those who give no mind to what they put into it, they take and take, they harm and continue, as long as no one stops them. The intensity of their venom grows stronger as the masses are led to believe they must be silent, that they somehow deserve it, that it is their lot in life to be abused.

She found herself alone, after all the energy she poured into helping another receive what was needed. She spilled her life force so thoroughly that she was completely depleted. Even after all was said and done, he could not stay. He left her to pick up the pieces of what remained of a fragmented self, to put it back together. One trauma after another occurred and she wondered what it all meant. Slowly, she began to understand that she needed to put herself first. She knew then, that self care is not selfish.

Sleeping GiantOur best friend is the sleeping giant within our core. The innermost portion of our being is so large. Perhaps you have said it yourself, “I am larger than life!” Many of us have stated this, as though it is an embedded bit of knowledge, a truth, that we know for certain. This majesty which is us waits to be recognized, not with arrogance, but to be embraced with the authority we possess already.

There are those who have worked very hard at maintaining a fear based, pain related society. They plan, and then carry out agendas which are shocking and spark outrage, followed by pleas of the people to have more of their rights taken … shrinking the already constricting cages they dwell in. They manipulate the minds of folks and make them believe they actually want to live within these bonds.

If only you knew how great you are. If only you would sit in stillness for a time and feel the blood pulse through your veins. If only you would notice the power of this life force within you. You would then know that you need not fight for anything, for you already have everything you need.
