A Fresh Start

Published June 19, 2018 by tindertender

This world can feel very small, and yet is is quite large.

Karmic debt is now being paid. Long lineages of this is coming to the fore and being wiped clean. There is a power greater than anything most people are aware of. There are many stories behind it, most of them have been skewed to meet the agenda of ‘mankind’ and those who give the message to the people.

This power I speak of will rock the world, mountains will erupt and flow like swift rivers, the earth will split and swallow buildings whole, the wind will toss everything about like little toys, and fire will burn all diseases stored in the soil.

Following this will be a state of harmony. Those fortunate enough to be here still will experience it, and bliss will take over their minds, a gratefulness they have never experienced will fill their hearts. Love will reign.

An innocence is coming to the world, a fresh start is on it’s way.

The Phoenix is Rising.

What Does Equality Really Mean?

To me, equality means being equally valued. There are different roles which must be filled in order to create harmonious balance, every position cherished and honored.

City life is a challenge, in that the definition of equality has been skewed. It’s about equal pay, voters rights, the freedom to choose. And while all of these things are important and necessary to be considered, the aspect which makes them poor, and will always see they remain so, is the lack of honor and respect shown toward each other.

There must be an inner desire to see others be successful in whatever they choose to take part in that is of benefit to someone other than themselves (which in turn is benefit to them). The logic, which is really very simple, has been jacked all out of context.

For the most part, it is my observation, this imbalance revolves around ‘greed’ and need for ‘power’. Lack has been bred into the system we find ourselves in, leaving folks scrambling for money needed to acquire enough for their families. The most prevalent problem in today’s environment is that there isn’t opportunity to earn enough anymore. Although wages have increased, they in no way measure up to the demands, that have also increased.

Essentially, the only way to combat this hole most of the world has been stuffed in to, is unity. Coming together, merging resources, working as a team and having honor and respect for each other for all our contributions.

The shackles which the powerful and greedy have given average people to wear must be shed. The system they’ve created isn’t working. It only serves to entrap and enslave. There is no real freedom.

There is possibility for freedom though, and it is in the hearts and minds of all people. It is up to each and every one how to go about breaking chains, for each and every experience has its own structure. Only those within the structure can organize an exit, one which will be easiest on those loved and cared for, while merging into a larger, more beneficial whole.

DIY Shampoo Bar

Published June 14, 2018 by tindertender

Eliminating plastics from the household is turning out to be quite the challenge! Torn between tossing everything and replacing with Corning-ware or stainless steel or wood, I keep what I have for now. I worry about it winding up in the ocean, or land fill to stay for centuries.

I’ve been distilling my water for two years now. I do whatever I can to buy things in glass, and I am working on making reusable grocery bags the new norm. While shopping I try to avoid the things in plastic, but it is everywhere!! Poison galore … bamboo tooth brushes and bamboo toilet paper are handy dandy items I’ve adopted into the home.

Recently I have decided to start making my own shampoo bars. I wish to eliminate the plastic bottles shampoo and conditioner come in from my household, and so I will. Below is a recipe I came across. I await the ingredients I’ve ordered and when they arrive I will get busy and teach myself the art of making good soap.

For my first batch I thank:

I am excited to try this recipe and be on my way to further disentanglement of that which is so destructive and disruptive of cellular function.

Ingredients needed to make DIY Shampoo Bar:

1 Unrefined Coconut Oil – 8 oz.

2 Olive Oil – 3.2 oz.

3 Castor Oil – 2.24 oz.

4 Sunflower Oil – 1.28 oz.

5 Raw Unrefined Cocoa Butter – 1.28 oz.

6 Food Grade Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) – 2.2 oz.

7 Coconut Milk or Distilled Water – 2.6 oz.

8 (optional) Avocado – 1.25 oz.

9 (optional) Rhassoul Clay – 1 tablespoon.

10 (optional) Apple Cider Vinegar – 0.5 oz.

11 Soap Mold.

There are so many talented and creative people in this world! To them I give a huge Thank You!” for sharing your recipes, ideas, and expertise. In deep gratitude I accept the blessing of your shared knowledge as I work to break ‘recent tradition’ (of the last century) and move deep into the heart of lore, improving on present circumstance.

Old wives tales and skills which continue from way back when … I welcome you into my world.

Telling The Truth Isn’t A Crime …

Published June 10, 2018 by tindertender

… Or is it?

Photo by Claudia Soraya

We’ve seen many people lose their lives for telling the truth, or for the intention of telling the truth. There is a long list of these people, and to name only a few … Ruqia Hassan; Don Bolles; Syed Salem Shahzad; Seth Rich; Serena Shim; Justice Antonio Scalia.

Others who are still living: Julian Assange; Edward Snowden; John Bolenbaugh; Spc. Bryan O’Neal; Judge Jean-Marc Connerotte; Erin Brockovich; Dane Wigington; Barrie Trower.

It seems that those who wish for the truth to be known are intensely gone after by those in the darkness in order to silence them. Those who live in shadows wish to stay this way and anyone threatening to bring their dirty deeds into the open is often killed, threatened, and chased around, lives made miserable by the constant harassment and threat.

Stories are spun about those who wish to have a transparent and safer space to live, those who risk their own lives to bring light into the world.

Truth seekers, and truth bearers, are often forced to live a life on the run, and/or life with continuous threat. Their lives may be slandered by others, making many believe they are telling falsehoods, conspiracy theorists, paranoid. Often these same people wind up dead, and ridiculous tales of ‘suicide’ are told about their demise.

It is important to glean information from many sources before making a personal opinion. Too many instance have been proven to be surrounded by lies, and it becomes known at a later date that sinister workings are ‘working hard’ to keep their shadow world hidden.

Fear is birthed in the lives of many, in those who wield the truth and move forward despite the threats, and in those who see what happens to truth tellers and remain silent.

There are the doers, despite the risks, and there are the ones who remain silent, even amid the ‘stories’ which they know to be false.

Where is the line nowadays? The balance is shifting, even while some may think it is not … thanks to the courageous ones who give their lives for truths sake, for the betterment of the world… for ALL life.

Our Common Plight

Published May 11, 2018 by tindertender

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.

It’s Not Meant To Be Easy

Published May 7, 2018 by tindertender

Great transformation is upon us. The entire world is heaving with change. This shift can be quite painful and cause tremendous pain and suffering. Through all of it remember:

Throw-a-pebble-in-theWhile healthy anger can fuel wise action, rage rarely does. There is a big difference between expressing healthy anger and expressing the uncontrolled negative energy of rage; it is worth knowing your triggers and seeking help if you do regularly escalate into rage.

Hope is a life-changing emotion. Without it, people literally die. It is important, though, to understand that hope requires some action. It is said that a wish  sent from a place of nondeservedness or ill feeling will sink early and not be granted. It is important not just to hope for a change but to hope from a place of good intentions and to act.

If strong, healthy self-esteem tips over into arrogance it is not true balance. In todays world it is not surprising that many people believe self-esteem and self value come from the outside in, from the admiration of others. Take the admiring people away, and if there is no solid core of self-worth, there is little left.

As difficult as it sometimes is, as horrible as the deep pit of despair feels when it builds in the stomach, you must breathe through it, allow it to loosen through the breath … it will dissipate after a time and forward movement will once more be possible.

Living is not easy, it is meant to challenge you, to allow opportunity for you to build strength though endurance and creativity, to hone the ability to solve problematic situations. Action must be taken with eyes and mind set on positive outcomes, change which benefits all life. With focus, combined with determined action and solid faith in the desired outcome, with unwavering belief that it will be … it will be.

Focusing on personal spaces shrinks the ‘box’ you have to work in. Opening to others, to the well-being of the whole, will eventually destroy the little box you’ve been living in. Strengths others possess, skills which they have mastered will combine with your own. An immovable force will be created. Together massive change can become reality very quickly.

You’re growing into your power, it many indeed be painful … just as the bones stretch when the body ages through youth. Know this, when all is said and done, you will be quite satisfied with the result.

Power Within

Published April 28, 2018 by tindertender

Life is Pure, Life is Clean.

Muddy WaterThis is a reality that has been muddied, just as many rivers on earth have been by oil. The authenticity and flawlessness of this world has been polluted by regulations which people have been ordered to follow.

While corporations pollute and poison everything, people have been led to believe this is something which must be allowed. Simply because those with money say it should be a certain way does not make it so. Some folks buck the system and we’ve seen how they are fined and jailed for non-compliance. Are we truly free if we choose to live a simple unregulated life, yet are forced into a system where everything we do is watched and monitored?

If the men and women on the street with signs suddenly had land and came together in community where they assisted each other with the growth of foods and composting of waste, would they then be regulated also, perhaps evicted from their land? Unfortunately, it has been done, and their lives are controlled just as every other life is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Perchance he for whom this bell tolls may be so ill, as that he knows not it tolls for him; and perchance I may think myself so much better than I am, as that they who are about me, and see my state, may have caused it to toll for me, and I know not that … No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”       ~ John Donne (1572-1631)

Even in the harshest environments there is Life. It can be understood as beautiful, or stark and barren, it depends on ones perspective and what is chosen to be seen of the situation. If one finds them self alone roots are put out seeking nourishment, companionship, joy and beauty. All of the things which can lift us from the darkness is sought if not too immersed in the reality that darkness exists. At some point a realization will come that its opposite does as well, just as everything has an opposite in this world, and once this truth is seen it can be sought, with knowledge that it is there. Often it is in solitude beauty of surroundings is seen, perhaps missed due to commotion from the outer world.

chose-to-changeEvery day when we open our eyes there is a new opportunity for creation. If one finds they are tired of same ol’ same ol’, this is the time to make different choices. Small steps toward change may seem insignificant, and most times these are the steps we are able to make … not giant leaps and bounds. If discouragement is prohibited from implanting in the mind, and baby steps are continued through every day, it is probable that when one looks back on the experience they will see the significance of every single step, and find an ability to be grateful for each one of them.

Natures seasons

The seasons of the world show us that life is experienced in cycles. All life ebbs and flows, just like the ocean. We may prefer life’s Spring over life’s Winter, however we will experience all of the seasons … just as the tree grows larger and stronger with each season, so will we if we choose to find the nourishment each season offers. Some seasons require somewhat of a hibernation, and others allow massive growth.

The particulars we add to this world through our experiences build the future for generations to come, whether you’ve had children or not. Every action creates a ripple affect, they touch others lives, and those lives touch other lives, and so on. Directly, or indirectly, every choice made creates the world reality for many others.

Ancestors in my bloodOur ancestors are alive within the veins of our body. Generations of memories are carried there and contribute to this day. Connection to life never ends, it is the power of choice which determines the outcome. All of us have been given this gift.

From the tender ages of life we have been instructed that we are to stay within the lines, only allowed to go as far as we are told, and punished if we disobey. This idea that we do not have power has been indoctrinated into the masses, and so we do as instructed … buy this, eat that, drink from here, follow this plan … believe what you are told and do not ask questions, just follow directions.

It can be seen that this idea of “Do as I say and not as I do” is failing the system which it has created around us. Oh you rebellious humans, I love you.
