Our Common Plight

What is common between people?
POWER … the need for it, the infliction of it, the abuse of it, the lack of it. When power is used for revenge or selfish gain the energy of it may be turned against the offender.

What is an approach that can assist people with this?
SELF-TRUST … to minimize risks, it is important to stretch capability in order to learn how to handle new situations, practicing techniques which afford positive change.

How shall Personal Power and Trust be utilized?
JUSTICE … with honor and integrity, standing for what is right and true. Being responsible for personal actions will end chaos.

What is needed?
ILLUMINATION … working for beneficial transformation requires a deep look into the shadows of life. The flame which burns bright and instills the desire to do good needs consistent tending.

As a professional fighter darts in, weaves and bobs, and then steps out of range, so too must those who are bringing about immense shifts in the world. Stretching ones capacity should be done with intent and focus, pushing hard, and then relaxing for a short time, and then pushing once more. Tend your light, grow it, share it, honor it and each other. BIG things are about to happen.

Obstacle Challenge

Published March 16, 2018 by tindertender

An appointment yesterday left me with knowledge of a current health situation. Without going into detail, I will tell you, I accept this challenge.

OM – The Sound, the Vibration of the Universe, The Primordial Sound
GAM – The Seed Sound, or bija sound of Lord Ganesha
GANAPATAYE – Another name of Lord Ganesh, the one who overcomes of obstacles.
NAMAHA – I offer you my salutations, I bow to you.

I will transform this body.
I will purchase a stationary bicycle, and use it.
I will join a water aerobic class.
I will retain and gain mobilization.
I will alter my diet.
I will shed extra pounds which cause stress on the body.
I will gather with open minded people.
I will share my intention of health.
I will do whatever is needed to more fully synchronize mind and body.
I will strengthen spirit/soul.
I Am a warrior.
I will sprint to the finish line.
I will continue to affirm what I will do, and not what I won’t.
I will grow love and compassion in my mind/heart/spirit.
I will love me just as I am, and then some.
I will let this compassion for self merge with compassion for others.

This challenge I have been given wasn’t really given. I was told to go about life until I couldn’t any more and then we would look into resolution. I say NO. I will look into resolution now, when it is needed most. I have a vision embedded in my mind, and I will transform this reality into a different one … because I have that power … and it will be.

We All Do It

future dreaming.jpg
All people live life while trying to determine future events. We walk around dreaming up scenarios for this and for that, imagining all different possibilities. No one knows for certain what will happen to them, or to anyone for that matter, yet try to figure it out anyhow.

A waste of precious energies … rather than spending time on the here and now, so much of thought is spent on these waking ‘dreams’. Lured here by others who tell us “you have no idea what is going to happen …”. They are right, and rather than allow them to lead thought down a road of guessing, delve deep into a subject in the present moment.

The future is not a threat. It is a field of limitless possibilities. All too easy it is, to get trapped in a box of fear, shrinking when thinking of possible hazards. It amazes me how the mind always attempts to go there, rather than positive results which could be, when appropriate actions are put into place.

Paranoia, fear, negative expectation … whatever you call it, it is theft in action, a robbery of possible joy which can be created now.

Every human has the ability to gather these emotions, these energetic impulses, and re-apply them to something else, somewhere else. For instance, if fear or anger crop up, start counting the things in which you are grateful for … the air, water, music, poetry, breathing, food, flowers, etc. There is so much to be grateful for … as this list grows in your mind, you’ll find a shift takes place. Now fear and anger shrink, and hope and beauty grow, all due to your conscious application of thought.

This power is yours, always has been. No one is subject to anything … the power of the mind can transport a person anywhere. So yes, while I have no idea what is going to happen to me, I dream of peaceful tomorrows, and joy filled todays. I will never give up on that thought, it will never be replaced by gloom … for this is what I wish to create, and with every breath I take, I will be working toward that today, and toward that tomorrow.

Abuses, World-Wide

Published February 28, 2018 by tindertender

SYRIA-CONFLICT

Bombs continue to drop in countries accused of using chemical weapons. Civilians who have alerted others are being killed by these attacks. Why is this so, when every country in the world has highly trained elite forces who can go in and eliminate the decision maker of this horrible chemical abuse?

Yes, I spent the morning watching world news before I sat down to write my thoughts. Shifting gears will be quite difficult.

People are tired of being bombed for the error of their government, and others are tired of having their paychecks robbed in the form of taxes which fund billions of dollars of weaponry used to inflict these attacks on innocent civilians. Yet governments continue to do just that.

Greed
This war making has little to do with eliminating harmful threats, for if it did they would send in special forces trained to take out these threats, and not blanket bomb entire cities and countries. No, this is a much deeper and more sinister issue that many people really do not want to acknowledge.

The only thing this never ending war making accomplishes is gain for the greedy. It makes civilians weak, destroying their food supplies and their waters, making them eager for a takeover which will bring in these supplies. The one appointed to lead the way to ‘regrowth’ will then have power over the resources of the land and do with it what they will … which will be in agreement with the ones who destroyed everything to begin with.

This is the strategy. Tear down, destroy, offer assistance to rebuild, claim resources. It’s purely tactical, without care at all for the civilians.

corporate-greed
This greedy war making and fighting for control of the world and its resources must end. Those in governments do not represent the people. No, they are nothing like the kind, hard working individuals who are robbed while complying, and beaten every single day for non-compliance. They practice tearing down the spirit of humanity so they can retain power over them.

I see the people speaking out against this insanity, and I am quite happy to note it. The young people are rising and they are indeed the future. The old men in the big house will die, whether they choose to acknowledge it or not. It will not matter if they have 7 heart transplants and other organ replacement, eventually they will die, and the young will take their place.

The young, who are sick and tired of being stamped down for greed, who are tired of being killed and jailed for some payoff between factions, treated as though their lives mean nothing.

Yes, those in government see it too … and they lack what it takes to work with them on resolution to this madness, for all they know is madness. Their persons will be replaced soon enough, I only hope that these old men do not destroy the world before then.

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

Searching For Purpose In Life

Published February 14, 2018 by tindertender

Looking at a situation, we are able to determine what needs to be done in order to improve the workings of a thing. We evaluate, and then follow up with the steps it takes to make the desired change.

People often wonder what their purpose in life is. Wondering around in somewhat of a daze this is probably the most asked question.

Galaxy

What if our birth here is no accident? What if we knew exactly the state of the world and where it was headed … what if we chose to come here at this time in order to make a difference, to make adjustments in the way things are in order to affect change that will alter the course of humanity, for all life on earth?

It is no easy task, it is not something the faint of heart decides to do. We came here knowing full well the dangers that awaited us, we knew we would face trials that might not be successfully passed. Even though it is extremely difficult to make it through this maze of harm and hurt, to overcome the self doubt imposed on us from childhood … here we are.

Those who wish to end life as we know it … that experience we have enjoyed at times in our own history … are working very diligently to do just that. It is our responsibility to counteract that destructive behavior.

All too often people are convinced that the way to make things better is through violence, through creating a destructive power so great that the ones holding the most destructive power would be the leader in peace.

It is comical, this logic.
It would be laughable were it not so deadly and dangerous.

conforming

Institutional learning has taught very well how to follow orders, how to do as we are told. From early on we learn how to ‘stay within the lines’. It becomes natural to do the bidding of another as we age, and graduate into other realms of being. We forget what it is to think outside the box.

Even those who exercise their creative mind are still following the desired path of someone else. When did we lose the ability to determine what is good, and clean, and beneficial? When did we become so geared to function for the sake of money alone? It seems the lesson here has been that life without money is no life at all.

We see how whole sections of humanity are forced into extreme poverty and starvation, their lives manipulated in such a way that survival is near impossible. This breeds need, and is followed by aggressive behaviors where people just decide they’ll take what they want, forgetting completely the methods and tools another must have also, not caring for their life.

The compassion born in a man and a woman is stripped from them as they face these challenges they swore to change upon birth, upon entry to this world. Getting caught up in all the mess it is forgotten … we are here to assist each other, to lift each other up … not just the few who deem themselves mighty, but all people, all life.

Impossible odds

This sacred world we live in is under attack, we accepted the challenge of making it right again, yet that oath was forgotten. Do you remember now … is it coming back to you?

Stepping out from the pain of rejection and desire, we must learn to see the bigger picture … life is not just about us personally, it is about the whole. Until we see it, and begin to behave in a manner which recognizes this fact, change will be impossible.

All of humanity is under a spell of a sort. When it is recognized, people will understand that we cannot blame someone for  their rejection, or for speaking harshly to us, or even for being used as a tool of destruction.

Stepping out of the box and viewing life from a different angle we can see the truth of the matter, and then proceed according to original plan. Imagine what Inner You is saying right now …

You Coordinate …

Jacob_Wrestling_with_the_Angel_by_Leon_Bonnat“I thought the CIA, FBI, Google and Facebook were bad. There are no spies worse than you. You watch as we shit, you watch as we piss, you spy upon our dreams!! Even we have barely a privilege of remembering these!! Our every move, our every thought … you do not care for peoples best interest, you are a self serving group. You even have folks believing they like it! Manipulator in finest form. You say it is our destiny … but no … we create our own, and if there is a way, you will be sorry you have intruded in such a fashion.”

Ephesians 6:12
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 

Tough Questions

Published December 18, 2017 by tindertender

self reflectionLife … it throws many trials at us. Some say that women return to the same type of abuse they became accustomed to in the past, I imagine it is this way for men as well. It takes a long time to begin questioning the deep-set cause of the continuation.

Questions, such as:
~ Am I subconsciously sabotaging this situation to protect my heart?
~ Am I really the biggest bitch everyone thinks I am?
~ Why am I standing aloof, far away from others?
~ How is it I have had trust stripped from my mind?
~Why am I so suspicious?

There are many who refuse to ask themselves these types of questions … personally, I swim in them. Does my asking them mean each and every one of them is true of me? Highly unlikely ~ although there are plenty of folks who would affirm the accuracy of them all … without asking of themselves the particular hard questions.

Sometimes, asking the questions of self out loud, gives others who hear the opportunity to latch on and try to prove, with much effort, the truth of it in regard the questioner. Still, the only answer needing sought, the only one, who without doubt, knows this truth IS the questioner, and only by seeking the answers can understanding begin.
