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.

It’s Not Meant To Be Easy

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.

There Is Honor In Turning Away

They’ve killed in your honor!” he shouted. “No … they killed because they thought it would bring them honor” is the response.

Free Society

People of the world once knew how to help each other, they were quite good at it. A darkness was made to cloud their minds and they forgot that they even wanted to.

Over time they have been taught they were flying solo, that they were in lack, that they had to fight for what little scraps they could muster. They were instilled with a fear that others might take from them, and some do. All of this anger and fear and pain and theft and harm stems from the cloud placed over the mind, the ‘veil’ if you will.

This current situation has been carefully orchestrated and fed by those who wish destruction. They cannot stand to see people banding together as a unit, for they become very strong when they do. When I say ‘strong’ I do not mean in a warring manner. I mean in their ability to gather resources, in their capacity to combine ideas and their willingness to labor together to see these ideas become reality which benefits all.

When backs are turned on the illusion which has been constructed and energies are spent in growing capacities to care for each other, the power behind destruction lessens, war fades, and harmony grows. It’s a choice people must make. To remain in this illusion which says ‘we need them’ and their gifts, or walk away, and create, and gift each other as we have capacity to.

The shift needed in order to sustain life will come from the masses, those talked of as ‘needless feeders’, the ‘disposables’, the ‘meek’ … these are the ones who will have claim in the world, these are the ones who ultimately will bind to, and heal, the earth.

Many of my writings are verbalized as though ‘I know’ personally of what must be done. Rather, these are inspired writings, as much a message for me as they are for you. I only hope you gain as much from them as I do.

Who Are You?

All people are exactly where they need to be on their personal path. More often than not, this path is not understood until later. Even then, the purpose of these lessons may be elusive, yet after experience it is easy to see the huge affect they have on our life.

There are those who may try to break your will, your spirit. They may do everything they can to douse your flame. They would like you to be subservient, to conclude they have authority. They act as though you haven’t capacity for divine connection, they may even insinuate you are not divine.

In the silence, when you are sitting with your thoughts pondering the meaning of it all, you sense you are not alone … you have never been alone. Some might respond, “But I AM alone!” In a sense, yes ~ in truth, no. Cutting the chaos from life and being in stillness more often, you will come to recognize that the commotion of the world does not reside within you. It is only an echo running circles in your mind.

Do not let the world break you, do not let it rob you of your inner peace, of joy and of the connection you were born with … realms which may not be remembered are open and welcoming.

As the mind spins round and round with the echo of pain and suffering of the world, as it draws you into its mess, remember who you are … a sovereign being, a powerful creator. Whatever you wish to be will be if you set your mind to it. Like walking, or breathing, after a time it will become quite natural, it will occur without thought, it will simply BE.

At night as you lay in bed trying to sleep and thoughts begin to churn in your mind, anxiety rises and the hours tick by, so sleepy you are but it just won’t stop. It will … breathe, long and slow. Roll onto your back and place your hands on your belly. Breathe and feel your stomach rise and fall with the slow inhale, and the slow exhale. With eyes closed point your inner vision to the ceiling, or the stars, and breathe. Two minutes go by, five, perhaps more … things calm down and you may be asleep before you know it.

This is an example of what you are capable of. With focus and clarity, with determined drive, anything is possible.

There is no need to relinquish who you are or to bow down to someone else. You are great! and you have much to offer this world.

Hone your skills of concentration. Notice and refine your senses, feel the connection to the energies surrounding you. This world is so much bigger than what the eyes behold.

Grow.

Earth Wages

Published April 29, 2018 by tindertender

That is what we are raised to earn. We are taught to pay the farmer for food and companies like Nestle for water. We are taught that it is business who gives us what we need to survive and it is we who must earn it. (Of course there is labor, and those who do the work ought to be rewarded for their efforts).

Truth is, the earth provides everything we need to grow food and the clean waters run abundant. Rather than stopping people from growing food in their yards and evicting them from their lands for going off-grid, it ought to be allowed to learn of living in harmony with the planet. Those with plenty should consider drilling wells for those whos water lays under the surface.

Wages of sin

There is enough to go around, but greed and need for power causes lack. Blackened hearts who are given power create sorrow and suffering in this world while they (for a time) reap benefit. While they collect liberal ‘earth wages’, what do you suppose they are collecting outside of the earth, in the land beyond time?

Narrow mindedness prevents a person from seeing the larger picture. They are concerned with the type of car they drive, the size of the house they dwell in, the amount of money in the bank and the power they hold over others. They practice manipulating people, sometimes masses of people into doing what is wanted for an outcome which benefits them, not caring about those who achieve this goal they desire.

Older now, having come from a place of lack into the present where there is enough, I see clearly how people are treated when they have little versus when they are not struggling. I also see those who have more than enough and the way they are coddled and followed by those who wish to catch the crumbs.

The one with the golden load struts about, earning big earth wages. Others follow behind that big bird with desire to advance, hoping they may be tossed a trinket or given blessing by the flesh walker who possesses an illusion of power, they too earn earth wages. Some are completely forgotten, starving in the streets, freezing in the cold and roasting in the heat with no shelter, ignored by the majority, dependent on others generosity to have even a drink of water.

While the dream is chased our inherent connection is forgotten. The suffering of the earth and the waters is not seen, the poisoning of the air we breath is denied, the harming of brothers and sisters is ignored.

Earth wages … is this really what life is about? Power over other humans … is this what you desire? While the rich and powerful may not physically ‘rape’ a person, they are doing the deed in other ways, equally damaging to the structure of life. It is difficult to see, it is even more difficult to ask ones self if they are participating in the destruction. It is hard to ask the tough personal questions … not of others, but of our own heart.

True courage comes in doing so, and effective change which benefits ALL life cannot happen unless people are brave enough to face their own inner demons, tame them, and take control … creating a better environment, a better world, for everyone.

When you look in a mirror, do you see a flawed person? Do you cover your face, pretend to be someone else, keep hidden the real you? Only the lionhearted will bare all, allowing vulnerability to come forth, and learn to stand strong amidst the attack of those who pretend. The ones who are brave enough to be open, who see their flaws and begin the personal alchemy process, will also be the ones who affect great change in this world. The pretenders? They keep illusion alive.

What ‘job’ do you wish to have in this world? To follow illusion and stay in the mode which has been around for centuries? Or break the mold, to stop hiding, to work on creating kindness and compassion … in your own heart, which will then ripple out into the world.

Choice … that beautiful gift we have been given. This is where the power is, and when used consciously, can be a wonderful tool for benefit, or for destruction.

reiki-healing-the-world

Breathing deeply, energy grows within the body. Feeling the flow of life’s blood, Qi is raised. Hands cupped, the world in miniature form is visualized between them. Healing energies from Spirit are amplified through the breath, blown into this world between the palms.

All life benefits from these gifts given, acknowledged by humans, amplified by the life force carried into this world by those in flesh.

Union with those bygone and those yet to come, we heal so that we may enjoy the purity of the haven created for, and given to, us … WE.

Power Within

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.
