Love Is Greater …

Published August 15, 2018 by tindertender

“He said it was going to be a rough transition.
Ecstasy is the ability to see ones self as a 6 year old again.
Why does this always seem to be my role?”

Even with all the windows closed I can still smell the air outside. It is a chemical smell left over from the fires in California. The haze is thick. So many houses were incinerated along with everything in them. So many items made from various materials. The state has deemed the air quality unhealthy. I begin my travels today, right into the red. My hope is a mighty wind will come and blow it out ahead of me. I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of toxins in that smoke.

Air quality 8-15-18

Guidance for the upcoming days is as follows:

Stepping out into the present moment(s) balance is needed. Be assertive, yet guide it with temperance of gentleness and compassion. Trust yourself, do not allow others to tell you you can’t, or shouldn’t.

Some fears are needed to guide us on our journey, warning us of dangers, yet others are slight paranoia’s which hinder our path. Look within the shadows of mind and see fear for what it is.

Do not dishonor your truths by allowing someone to tell you who you must be. We are all connected, Guardians of the earth and all who share it ~ It’s time to play an active role in its protection. Be aware of, and limit your impact on the world. Tread with care and walk with love.

Life gives us choices, always. To name a few: 1) Climb to the heavens as eagle, look down and recognize the Divine is in everything, known, and unknown … seen and unseen. Both creative and destructive, the beautiful and the ugly, are born of the Divine. 2) Share yourself with those you love. Commit to love ~ Give yourself completely, trusting that you will not lose your independence or sense of self, but instead become two halves of a stronger, loving whole. 3) Be kind and gentle with yourself. Love you ~ strengths and weaknesses ~ without reservation or condition. Nurture yourself, be kind to yourself, for you are deserving of the same unconditional care and love that you give to others.

The moon has power over the waters, it can lift earths oceans at the equator and carry them along in her wake. The human body is 2/3rds water and is also subject to this power. Take note of the moons cycles, as it waxes and wanes. Pay attention to how you think and feel as its light increases and decreases. Explore its influence on your body and emotions.

Honor yourself by treating yourself with the same care, and in the same manner, that you wish others to treat you. If you do not, others will not either. Ask yourself ~ Is change necessary for continued well-being and happiness? If the answer is yes, then act. If the answer is no, then do not.

Lay down burdens of the past which cannot be undone. Rest in healing waters and wash away the guilt and remorse from those experiences so that you may be open and ready to accept the blessings which are to come.

AAaaahhhh Love … it waits for us. Never give up on it, it will find you if it hasn’t already. It will well up from your center and spread to the outer, and when this happens it will be greeted by those who are doing the same. Do not be discouraged by the ones who attempt to squash its existence, for as they seem powerful, Love is even Greater … be patient, you will see.

 

Choice

My arms swell with an energy that feels ‘stuck’. I stretch them up over my head, slowly lowering them. There is a release from the hands, it seems as though for a moment they disappear.

I listen to the above tune, sitting quietly. I think on the word ‘beautiful’. It is one of my most favorite words. B-e-a-u-tiful … It describes what we see, smell, taste and feel. So many things are beautiful. I long to see these things and acknowledge them in the world, for if the world truly is a reflection of me, then I long to see beauty in me as well … and so I search for it, I cultivate it in my thoughts and actions, I grow a garden chuck full of it, consciously, purposefully, intentionally.

A peaceful world IS possible. It simply needs to be fostered in the minds of humanity from birth, rather than what we’ve been doing … fostering fight or flight, dominate or be dominated, use or be used. Honesty and integrity must come before immoral, lust filled behaviors, surrounding sex and/or greed of any kind. Goals that include dominance of anyone or anything should never be developed … and will topple.

Look around, remember your own self as an innocent child … before pain was introduced as abuse or neglect. It is real, it was only stripped, and replaced by something else less savory.

School … training … it’s all a farce. It is meant to proliferate more of the same. A total revamp needs be. If people do not find within themselves capacity to flip this around, to reform what they’ve been programmed with and choose another way … it will have to be done for them. Of course, this is a last resort, much better for free will to come in and make these decisions consciously, wholly.

One way or another, these destructive ways will come to an end and life will try again.

Is the choice to be a willing participant in the creation of beauty and grace, or is the choice a flat refusal of releasing that which destroys?

Live by the sword, die by the sword …
Promote hate and fear, die with hate and fear …
Insist on chaos, live with chaos at the end of time …

Loveit wins.
Be a partner to it, or not.
The choice is yours.

 

Culmination In Progress

Published August 4, 2018 by tindertender

5:55 ~ You are significant. Be prepared! A major shift is coming. Every experience is an opportunity … do the right thing, based on intentions for the highest and greatest good, for all.

I recently purchased a book titled, Remembering Earth Mission, from the Ancient Ones, Keepers of Galactic Secrets, by Sharon Riegie Maynard. I have included a small portion of it here, it really hits home with me, and I feel it will you as well.

“This is our home! Domination and fear-based experiences are NOT acceptable here! There can no longer be abuse, neglect or mistreatment. Earth is a place where all will experience peace, abundance, and joy, now! All lack, hate, war, and deception is revealed for what it is, ‘Parasitic imprints’ of falseness and domination. We command it be banished! We demand a return to Earth’s original plan and glory!”

“I call for all to search their hearts, ‘Are you a part of this mission?’ Not only is the earth being damaged, but our societies are in great danger … the effects of destructive attitudes and behaviors are everywhere. From this point in time and space, we can bring all dimensions to wholeness, transformed powerfully. We have a right to demand a return to free agency, uniqueness, love, and peace. I declare our Divine sovereignty!”

“I do not accept the idea of Earth’s end! I will not let go of my Mother, the Earth. I will not allow destruction and abuse of her creations. With whatever authority I have, I call for an end to that which is truly false and endangering, the dishonest and fear-based behaviors among humankind. I do not accept the idea of Earth’s end! That which is true and beautiful and life-enriching will be protected and maintained!”

Meditation:

“Let your consciousness drift back in time. Sense the dimensions of clear Light. Feel the peace, the love, the contentment and the Oneness.

“See the Earth, a sphere within greater Light, imagine her connection to unlimited source. See joy existing and filling this sphere. Boundaries surround the Earth and protect the flow of untainted Universal energy. Nothing can diminish her Divine purpose. Mother Earth secures her space in complete harmony and love.

“All elements, earth, fire, water, air, minerals, plants, and animals are freely available to bring Good for all in the Web of Life. Life flows with honor and balance. All Earth lifetimes reflect her wholeness. All contrary energy has been transmuted into Light or removed to its place of origin.”

“If there are lessons to be learned on Earth, it is that we are amazing, intelligent, loving beings and anything that diminishes our experience of ourselves as such, does not belong here … All of our reasons for limit must be dissolved … we are the ones to choose a new life and a new world.”

In The Beginning …

Published July 30, 2018 by tindertender

There were two young men, one brunette and one sandy haired. The first was of average height and stocky and the second, slender and tall, lanky. The first dark haired man was smitten with the girl, he wanted her for himself, yet she was smitten with the tall, lanky one, she chose to be with him.

When they were discovered together the stout, dark haired man was furious! He created a contract of taxation … he wanted 15 to 35% of everything they had, and everything they ever would have. She told him he was only upset because she chose the one over him, and she threw the document back at him, refusing to sign. There is NO price tag on Love. They took her fair haired lover away and they hurt him … keeping him from her, to this very day.

Jealousy has no honor. It is not pretty, or handsome, it cares not for others at all. It’s focus is on destruction of everything good. What does one do when they’ve been rejected? How do they deal with the hurt they feel? Is it not better to decide that the one they pined for actually is not the one suited for them and simply move on?

Heartache, heart break, one after another. Life will give it to us over and over again, it has, and we have experienced the truth of it. The root of it all is the jealousy of one man … and the whole world suffers for it. They said the woman ate the apple, but no, she chose love over being possessed … Gentleness over a prideful owner. And so the would be prideful owner has, for all of time, caused much suffering in the world.

Some say she should have allowed him to possess her, for the good of the whole, but if one is possessed and not allowed the freedom to love, then the love of the whole would be poisoned anyway, living false happiness while she suffered. Would anyone of honor, integrity, living in morality say they could actually be happy, knowing it possible only for the suffering of one?

If one is not free to love, are any actually, truly free?

How to mend hearts? How can the originator of this whole mess be convinced there always has been one more suited to his being? Does he not know his twin flame waits? She too, most likely, has been suffering under this spell he has cast into the world. Jealousy closes the mind to the bigger picture, and the goodness that could be isn’t, because of it.

How can she facilitate healing? How can she free her love and open the clouds above, allowing the sun to shine on all hearts who suffer? How can she let the one who caused so much pain know that he, too, has one waiting for him, and how she, along with all others, has suffered due to his inability to see the bigger picture?

Rage closes the heart, room cannot be found for that which would fill and smooth the hurt. To be possessed by one who does not truly love is hell itself, and cannot be allowed. Yet from the beginning this has been the way of the world, following in the footsteps of the original man who became so insane he could not see past his emotion, noticing that he was lacking knowledge of the workings of the heart, perhaps too prideful to acknowledge it, if he did.

Woman did not cause the fall of the world. Jealousy of a man did. And still, to this day, wars are fought because men are not ‘getting their way’.

Is it not time to begin again? Knowing what we know now, can we not find a better way, one in which allows healing and true love to exist?

Lust is not love. Lust wants to posses, and it is followed by pride. When the one possessed leaves or is freed, wars are fought and people die … this is the current reality, caused by the original event of shattered pride and need for possession and power over and of another.

All this time blame has been put on the head of that young woman, and women all over the world have carried this burden. All she ever wanted was to love, and to be loved. All she still wants is to love, and to be loved. She has been searching for it, for him, and he for her.

It seems they have come together, even though she did not understand what was happening. Her mind had been clouded by generations of programming, by the embedded emotion of fear and pain. Is it possible to heal this wound from so long ago and bring peace to all lives, shedding the doctrine imposed on humanity, breaking the spell?

Fervent Study, Catch and Release

Published July 29, 2018 by tindertender

During these breaks in the work week I dive relentlessly into training myself to connect with and decipher information which comes my way. It is quite intense and seems to be growing more forceful.

No one starts out on any journey as a seasoned traveler, or holding absolute clarity of what they are doing. Building skills, in whatever one chooses to spend time with, takes practice and determined steadiness, even when things do not seem clear.

The most sincere path includes being vulnerable, sharing lessons learned along the way and the knowledge gained with others … perhaps assisting another on their own journey.

There comes a time when the ‘old’ must be released in order to make way for the ‘new’. This can be quite difficult, for often the letting go of what is familiar is painful, frightening even. Forward movement cannot be embraced until the past is given wings. Entering uncharted territory is always uncomfortable, but it is also the beauty of life!

Saying no to what compels the soul is damaging to ones sense of freedom. How often do we choose to remain in the gilded cage for fear of flight? Priorities must be clarified and acted on to facilitate progression.

Listen to your heart. What is it that fills you with enthusiasm? Are you honoring that which sparks the inner fire of you, or are you denying it? There may be procrastination going on, that old hook that hinders so many creative explorations.

It is important to be affirmative and focus on what your soul is seeking. Remember, it is you who you will spend the rest of your life with, be happy in what you choose to do with that time.

Often we find our self in circumstance which are quite comfortable. The ‘struggle’ has eased, and although not perfect, we tend to put up with things that are not catering to our highest and greatest good, simply because we do not want to fight any more. There is a problem with that though … true living is a journey of an upward spiral, and relaxing into a situation which does not allow for movement is stagnation.

Life is about continuously rebirthing our self. If we stop doing that, we grow old and tired in the rut we have chosen. Boredom, although seemingly comfortable, does not feed the soul, or help the spirit shine.

There was so much I did not know, and so much I do not still. At times it is difficult to look deeply at something, perhaps because of fear … fear of finding something which is not ‘wanted’ to be known.

How to release fear? It has been my experience the only way to deal with fear is to walk right into it, through it. Better to do this than to waste an entire lifetime paralyzed by ‘what might be’. Better to get out there and just deal with it, get it over with, or get it going.

What good is a life frozen in pain and suffering?  Is it not best to move forward, always, regardless of that which attempts to keep us shackled? Is it not wise to push the boundaries we have been told, and taught, to remain inside of?

Oh, the fruits you came to offer the world! Deep within you, you know you have plenty … and I’m not talking about ‘things’ … I’m talking of inner wealth and connection with all that is. The stuff that heals souls! The stuff that allows you to reach inside and do the work to heal the damage done to your own Spirit.

As you come to accept this truth, you will understand your journey is much more than singular … Overcome doubt and fear by trusting your decisions. Swim in the Eternal Light. Inner purification is upon us now, embrace it.

Long-held attitudes are being challenged and are breaking down, but you are not your attitudes. Your higher self is breaking out of its shell. The phoenix always rises from the ashes … A greater person is emerging.

Be crystal clear on your priorities. Direct your thoughts and words toward the achievement you desire.

The old must die to the new. Your most unselfish love must be applied to the act of rebirthing self … and to the future you wish to create. Travel gently, and appreciate all that has been … this is the ground work for all that will be.

Hurdles And Smiles

Published July 28, 2018 by tindertender

Why do you say there is a problem? Are you insinuating I have a problem, or is it you? Well … of course, we all have a problem … it’s called getting over the next hurdle. But then, that can be looked at as a challenge as well … Are you challenging me?

Hahaha … the things which come along during that portion of night when one is half awake and half asleep.

The mind-set we choose to carry with us during the day determines attitudes and opportunities presented. Knowing this, what will you do?

When we decide to remain positive, smiling and feeding the happy bug we like to carry with us, someone(s) will come along and do their very best to tear that down and squash that bug. Be aware of this … and continue smiling anyway, continue with the reaching for positive outcomes, be patient and kind. The naysayers will leave eventually for they cannot cope with sustained effort for peaceful states of being.

Don’t cave and become what they wish you to become. Do not get angry and lash out, this is the energy that feeds the negative nelly.

Difficult? Yes, until you recognize what triggers you and then work on making certain your triggers are not ‘flippable’, it will be.

Inner work is tough, but so are you …  fully capable of undoing the harm done. You came here with every single tool you need to create peace and balance. Remember … and then do.
