Smile In Their Faces

In life there will be many who do wrong against you. From a young age all the way to exit from the planet, from the body.

The best thing you can do in the face of these attacks upon your innocence, your naivety, is to smile, and continue to be happy, continue to be love.

Do not let the invisibles behind the scenes, those who manipulate the vulnerable and angry persons to do harm … do not let them steal from you the inherent joy and peace you were born with.

Even if they have succeeded, for a time, reclaim what is yours.

Take back your right to peace, to joy, to happiness. Smile in the face of the devils, laugh if you can. Know you’ve got this.

Union VS Division

I have never been aware of the division in this country to the extent that I am now. I am surprised at the talk of union from the representatives, when they clearly are not willing to work together, as a team, for the benefit of the whole.

How can a country, whos representatives are so divided, expect to ever unite the people? Can they not see that what they speak of they do not act on?

Until those who wish to ‘lead’ the country into greatness begin to act as though they are great, and have the whole in mind when they speak and act, there will be division.

Let us hope they … and we … can somehow pull heads out of stubbornness and get it together.

What Are You Looking For?

Published October 11, 2018 by tindertender

Sometimes I find myself looking for the car keys, or glasses, or the other shoe. But what am I really looking for?

As a child I was looking for acceptance, praise, approval … and belief in what I said was happening to me.

As a young woman I was looking for love, for a mate that would commit for life, yet that did not pan out like I had imagined it would.

Today, I look for depth. Depth of self, and depth in others. No longer interested in what is fashionable, or ‘normal’, or widely accepted. No … I seek the inner workings of me, and of others, and of all life … including this beautiful planet that supports it.

Questions constantly arise: Who am I? What am I here for? What is my purpose?

I am tired of wasting time. There is only so much we are given. It seems the youngsters are focused on popularity, hanging with the gang who gives support where it might be lacking.

Too little time is spent teaching the value and importance of the earth and all it provides life. The sacredness of life itself is tossed to the wayside, while mothers and fathers toil and sometimes struggle just to put food on the table. This land gets forgotten, and the connection damaged, if not broken.

What am I looking for?

I’m looking for the reconnection to all that is sacred, to that which does, and always has been with me, part of me, inside me, and also surrounding me … seen in everything I view.

By becoming aware of the fact that what I see resides in me … the angry one, the sad or depressed one, the joyful one, the idle one, or the work horse. I have worn these shoes, and worn them well, so when I see these things in others I reflect inside, and look hard to see if it still is there, or if I’ve been successful in transmuting it, or nurturing and growing it.

Alchemy of the Spirit and of the Soul, not an easy task, but the effort to make alterations opens doorways not possible before.

Flue Shots And Chemical Haze

Published October 4, 2018 by tindertender

I have a friend who told me that ‘this flu season’ is really bad and I should get a flu shot. I proceeded to tell him it isn’t the flu at all, but the concoction being sprayed above our heads. It is an ‘infection’ by whatever it is in those overhead trails. He said, “Oh, you’re one of them.” I said, “Why yes, I am!” and went on about how folks are standing around breathing the aftermath of an evenings sprays, and then they get sick. If they do not get sick right away, fear is created in their minds about how they will be if they don’t get injected with an unknown substance. He told me I was pissing him off. I find it amazing that he is more interested in the political fighting going on than his own air space!

For example:

And the following morning, people standing in the chemical haze created by the previous afternoon and evening spraying while they wait for the max train. As soon as this ‘haze’ began to dissipate, they started spraying again, massively, trails curving this way and that and doubling back on each other, crisscrossing here and there.

img_4293 I tell you, I do not know how so many people are missing it! It is frustrating to have someone look at me and slander me and get down right angry with me for trying to point out the obvious.

What is going on? 

Are people really being programmed by the subliminal messages of the television? I do not ever turn mine on, but my room mate does, and sometimes when I speak to him it’s as though he cannot hear me. I have to pause for a few seconds, and then he’ll respond. Weird …

Whatever the actual plan is, I refuse to participate with every ounce of my being. If I’m going out, it won’t be due to being injected with something. (Willingly, that is). Many of us know by now there are sinister plots and ploys going on all around us.

Trust has left the building.

Rebirth

Judgement is simply the return to Self of that which Self has given forth. From the mountaintop, you can look back and see the footprints of your path through the snowy valley of life. Here, your heart can open to all, for you to see clearly from on high. No anger is stored. No judgement is hidden. Now, you have learned to express what needs to be expressed, to empty the heart and open its doors for true love to enter.

If not able to fully utilize your stores of nourishment for self and others, go and prepare a nurturing space. Renew yourself. Get what you need to fill your space and feel good about sharing once again with others. Your life is designed to bring you into constant relationship. Each relationship is a chance to act as if you are serving the Divine Being by serving that Light which is each human and creatures presence.

Shed old habits of death and destruction through a simple turning of mind toward ‘rebirth’. This is the power of regeneration, the turning point. Free yourself from the limitations of circumstances.

You may want to write poetry, paint, act, sing and/or dance. You may begin to feel as though you are a child yourself. You may actually begin to see the Kingdom of God is within you. Let your heart be light, you are the new sun, Christ consciousness reborn on Earth this day.

Asking Questions ~ Working For Peace

Published September 25, 2018 by tindertender

What is true for me?

Asking questions of self can be a liberating exercise. The answers which come out first are only an entry point into deeper meaning and realizations.

For instance, I might say that what is true for me is a desire for family. True family. In my past there were many step fathers and step siblings, they came and went as the wind blew it seems. But deeper than that …

I desire a sense of belonging. We don’t always get to choose who our ‘family’ is, but when the day comes that we are able to choose, sometimes we have to let go of that which was chosen for us.

Truth for me is a longing of connection to those who appreciate the earth and the ancestors, who respect each others decisions, even though we may not always agree.

Freedom, to be and to do what our ‘heart-speak’ whispers to us, as long as it is not harmful or deceitful. Yes, our heart-speak may not be what someone elses heart-speak is, and it may hurt the feelings of another especially if they are smitten with us, but honoring each others heart-speak is essential … for it is this freedom which allows our soul to grow.

Pain cracks open the heart, and what happens to a seed when it ‘cracks open’? It blooms, it grows, in a way that it never would have been able to if it had not been cracked.

Free-will allows us to choose whether we would have this crack ooze poison, or a healing salve which creates a beautiful experience, enriching life and offering possibilities to grow, and to harness strength.

Remaining open after a heart crack is a challenge, but it provides extreme beauty if we are willing to move with it, forward into the next opportunity for love.

So, what is true for me? I long for love, for peace, for belonging, and so I work to cultivate it … I love who I am today, more now than before all of the heart break and rejection. I have discovered that the beauty within me only became richer by my experiences and losses. Even today, I embrace those who deny me opportunity, for I know that the time will come when all will flow quite nicely.

Patience, this is key to all things. Trust in the grander scheme, the higher plan. Humanity cannot possibly know what this is, but it always seems to work out that every need is met (even when we are living in our car, yes, I’ve been there).

Connecting Heaven and Earth is a wonderful thought, and totally possible. Effort is needed, for this connection happens through the human body and mind. If we are wiling to try, if we want it to be, it will be.

Here is an exercise for morning and night and any time you feel the need to fill up or recharge or get grounded. I did this in the restroom yesterday afternoon, it was a great break from number crunching, and brought a sense of peace in the middle of my day … and no one even knew I did it.

Heart Speak

Published September 22, 2018 by tindertender

“Why did you choose him over me?”, he asked.

Centuries old question, arises again and again. It is clear the heart speaks its own language. Often the mind may say, “No” … yet the heart says “Yes”. One cannot deny the heart, for to do so would be untrue to self.

Since self is the one most definitely with us every day of life, self is the one we ought to be true to, regardless of what any other person thinks we ‘ought’ to do, or what they deem best for our future.

The brain does not control our heart. The heart beats on its own, chemistry either connects or repels, it isn’t a brain thing … it’s a heart and body thing, and energetic thing. Honor it … for it is trying to honor you.

When two peoples heart speak is different, let it go. Not everyone is going to feel the same as we do, they too are listening to their own heart speak. Honor their path just as you attempt to honor your own.

Really, it is hard enough to decide what is best in our own world, and many times it is discovered the decision we thought was correct, was not. Yet this is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth! Anyone who would deny an individual this freedom and advancement in knowledge is not ‘friend’.

Trust yourself, and remember, even when you think a decision was wrong, ask of the experience what is there for you to ‘learn’ and consider it a gift … every single time, for it is … the greatest gift one could ever receive.

Life lessons are priceless, even the ones that hurt. Never give up, be true to your heart, and always reach for the stars.

Joy and peace are creations of beauty … be that, share that. When it seems hardest to be the creator of peace and calm care, put that much more effort into it. The world will be of great benefit from your contribution, and you will enjoy the gift you give when you do it.
