Life Is A Dance

Published June 21, 2019 by tindertender

Relationship isn’t personal. Not from an observance point, but from an emotional point, oh boy, watch the house go down!

Each individual is going through moments, all of them, as a single unit of expression which, when combined, allows the whole to be seen. It looks as though they are all separate, occasionally bumping into each other, maybe falling in love and staying awhile, or perhaps they just kind of bounce from one to the other, no connection which lasts too long.

Looking at neurons in film, they reach out, touching, merging and changing, shifting, as it’s life goes along.

You see this most easily when you think of someone moving to a new city, or state, or country. The area they move to will be affected by their contribution, things will change. And when they move again, things will shift again, for all parties involved.

Each person has this affect on their surroundings, every moment of every day. I wonder if people see themselves as a virus, or as antibodies.

They merge every so often, staying awhile, maybe a little longer, and then a new experience comes along to shift perspective, physical location, or a complete mind blow ( I don’t know about you but it seems one of my favorite phrases is, “that blows my mind!”) which is where that came from.

It seems to be habitual for some to get real upset when the time has come for ‘disconnect’ or movement of sorts in a relationship. It really isn’t personal, although everyone makes it so … yes, including me. It seems to be typical that humans are “led” by their emotions instead of “leading” them, controlling them rather than being controlled by them.

Life forms on this planet should be dancing together, yet it appears they would rather do anything but.

We Have Come To Be Danced

Published March 19, 2019 by tindertender

Not the pretty dance

Not the pretty pretty, pick me, pick me dance
But the claw our way back into the Belly
Of the Sacred, Sensual Animal dance
The unhinged, unplugged, cat is out of its box Dance
The holding the precious moment in the palms
Of our hands and feet Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Not the jiffy booby, shake your booty for him dance
But the wring the sadness from our skin dance
The Blow the chip off our shoulder Dance.
The slap the apology from our posture Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Not the monkey see, monkey do dance
One two Dance like you
One two three, Dance like me Dance
but the grave robber, tomb stalker
Tearing scabs and scars open Dance
The rub the Rhythm Raw against our Soul Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Not the nice, invisible, self-conscious shuffle
But the matted hair flying, Voodoo Mama
Shaman Shakin’ Ancient Bones Dance
The strip us from our casings, Return our Wings
Sharpen our Claws and Tongues Dance
The Shed Dead Cells and slip into
The Luminous Skin of Love Dance.

We have Come to Be Danced
Not the hold our breath wallow in the shallow end of the floor dance
But the Meeting of the Trinity, the Body Breath and Beat Dance
The Shout Hallelujah from the top of our Thighs Dance
The Mother may I?
Yes you may take 10 giant Leaps Dance
The olly olly oxen free free free Dance
The everyone can come to our Heaven Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Where the Kingdom’s Collide
In the Cathedral of Flesh
To Burn Back into the Light
To unravel, to Play, to Fly, to Pray
To root in skin sanctuary
We have come to Be Danced

We Have Come…

Answer Yes, or No?

Published September 8, 2018 by tindertender

I bought a pendulum today. It seems it can hardly say anything but no, even my name isn’t what I thought it was, apparently.

Either it’s a lemon, or the answers I seek are secret. I feel I’m getting the distinct message that this ought not to be used by me for seeking answers.

I bought several books and other items to stage an alter for my indoor personal prayers and ‘callings’. Hopefully all that goes better than the pendulum work given by my new piece of art.

I went drumming today with a group of people I hadn’t seen in quite some time today also. Oh my goodness! The energies were moving at high speed! The drum keeper brought some cards and offered everyone in the group to choose one from the deck. I pulled “Tribal Spirit Dancer”. I felt like a Spirit Dancer! And later in the day I had a chance to read what my card actually meant.

Aaaaannnndddd … release. I danced like no one was watching. I made rain (sounds) and thunder too. I really love just letting loose with that which dwells inside me. Literally, the energy had me shaking on the inside, it was great!

Yesterday I bought some prayer beads, my first strand! Now I will create a few mantras that I will use (in my own language). I’m going to write them on a miniature scroll, roll it up and put it in a little bottle, then in a leather pouch I bought. I’ll wear it, or keep it handy for those times when I need to choose a particular mantra for a particular occasion. Some day I’ll have them memorized, but while I begin my practice, this will help.

Tools! Let us take advantage of the items we have available to us to hone our concentration skills. Meditation can be a challenge, the beads help keep focus in the moment.

With all the excitement today, I think I’ll break open one of my books … right after I finish reading The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, a few excerpts are as follows:

Talking about evil turns creative force upon it
and gives it life and actuality.

Fear should not be allowed to enter self.
Neither should we create fear in another for fear is bondage.

If within our hearts we have kindness, then those of like harmony are attracted to us.
If this is not the case, then that one is ruled by disorder.

Love is the beginning and the end of the path, for in love lies oneness.

True greatness does not require self praise. Let others acknowledge your greatness which is recognized by your attitude toward your fellowman.

Strife, hatred and fear are the results of darkness. Freedom from darkness eliminates these.

Wisdom comes only to those who seek her.
You must take the first step and then continue to walk forward.

Man is not truly of the Earth or material but, in the final analysis, is the divine fire itself. The soul of man is a divine fire, a flame cast forth from the great fire yet still one with it. Light in darkness is man, yet separate in power and order.

The prayer is really a command and is for the purpose of establishing a harmony or connection between soul or consciousness and the cosmic consciousness.

 

 

Smooth …. Let It Roll

Published July 12, 2018 by tindertender

Life goes along throwing us on the ol’ chopping block once in awhile. Then it’s smooth sailing … for a time. All of a sudden the trials begin again, and our patience is tested, our ability to remain calm is tried, the Universe, and all that is part of it, waits to see if we are ready to “roll with it”.

These tests will continue through life. If we are fortunate we will one day reach a point when the small stuff just slips by without us making a huge fuss about it.

Something to remember: “If you aren’t bleeding or choking, there is no emergency”. Now, we all know there are dangerous situations which do not involve bleeding and choking yet must be changed … still, the need for immediate response isn’t there … there is time to think it through, or simply release it.

Shadow Dance

Amid the shadows they lined the street as I moved along. The senses come alive when the vision is halted, the previously unknown appears. Some describe them as slithering and lurking, when in fact they are simply be-ing, the only way they can. I wonder if they see us the same, slithering and lurking in the ethers they cannot fully join.

The vibration is increasing. Inside the intensity is building, this energy contained is shifting and growing, reaching for the outside of my flesh. Will what I am at the core burst forth into the world as a new form?

Surely I am not alone in this, there are many others who sense it too. No one need teach of it, for it is there, has been all along. All it takes to know it is silent observation, attention given to the subtle energies which play on the skin, moving over and below it’s surface, pounding away on the inside, seeking a path of release.

Release … is it really? Or is it only a transformation into something greater, something free of the boundaries given at birth? Something no longer hindered by the man-made regulations imposed during time?

Time … someone said nothing is wrong, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. But is it? If time is an illusion, perhaps the rightness of this stopped clock is also an illusion, within the illusion that time is real.

Setting aside these thoughts I rise, I stretch and feel the flow of juices up the spine. The heat it creates moves through my body, my mind. And so the day begins.

Not Everyone Will Appreciate The Storm

Published April 9, 2018 by tindertender

Dancing in the rainAs I stood atop the cliff the wind whipped and roared around me. My body was pushed about like it was paper, I giggled as the power of it surrounded me.

I spoke with a woman who lived here full time and marveled at the power of Mother Nature, how she was showing us her strength, and how amazed I was at the feel of it. I told her how incredible the force of it was and how I loved it. She looked at me as though I was half crazy. Here in this place, the winds sometimes ripped roofs off houses, she did not find that so wonderful I suppose.

The waves of the ocean which at first were calm and rolling, became torrents of whipped water rising in white rushes of churning waters. It raged as it tossed about the sands underneath.

While I am not an owner of things in this place, I was able to marvel with awe and wonder at the might of this scenery, those who DO own property and dwelling tense as they anticipate the damage that could arise from this storm, fearing loss.
