Shredding Layers

Published November 23, 2018 by tindertender

Fighting for peace is like shouting for silence. It only gives you more of what you do not want. What you resist, persists.

Pulsing sound pushes through this rooms space. It enters my ears, my mind, my ‘field’ and I close my eyes to rest with it a moment. This pulse disrupts the immediate surroundings, it interrupts thought, breaking up ‘normalcy’ making way for something new to be birthed.

The name of Shiva is sung in chant as I ponder these things. Shiva is Supreme Being, Primordial God of Destruction, Supreme Destroyer of Evil, and God of Yoga, Meditation, and Arts.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva

In the western world people are told to hand over any power they feel coursing through them to a “Savior”, one common name given is “Jesus, the Christ”. They are taught they are powerless, that all they need do is believe in Him and they will be saved.

While the world fell into the pits of darkness and as this darkness is brought to present day “Light” many still refuse to take action, to assist each other in the creation of peace and harmony.

We hear often in this society phrases using words such as “the left”, “the right”, “liberals” or “libtards” among many others. Those who use words such as these promote division and are not part of the Peace Movement.

Humanity is taught of devils and angels, evil and good, and it seems what is labeled as evil has a strong grip on the human mind.

What if … ?

… the human mind is an amplifier … When that of a spiritual nature unites with the physical?

… if the human mind is full of purposefully injected poison which is amplified upon union of seen and unseen?

… if the human mind and heart is gentle and loving, allowing that to be amplified upon union?

What if angels and demons are simply a reflection of the inner “programming” humanity has been subjected to while in body, on earth, by those with specific ‘plans’ for earthly outcomes?

What if we are being “played”.

The only solution is to cultivate kindness and compassion. When the majority decide to become masters of their fate, masters of their future (this life and the next) they will plant things in their ‘garden’ that are nourishing, rather than those things which will inflict starvation, for self, and for others. We WILL be coming back, the question is … what to?

Choice … that is where true power lies.

What if you are not evil? What if you are here to end evil? It is logical that the truly evil person and organizations would do their utmost to convince you of your imperfection and evilness. They would do everything in their ability to strip you of your confidence, and deplete you of your knowledge of the inherent sovereignty you were born with. Rather than make yourself small, or eliminate yourself, you must allow yourself to see that you are not what others have deemed you as.

Perhaps you are here to break us all free from that which has held us down for so long. Let us consider that you DO care enough to take action … to break the ‘temporary’ mold placed upon your head, and the heads of others.

What if ‘belief systems’ have been passed down generation after generation only to facilitate continued entrapment? What if the weavers of this ‘dream’ are afraid we will become aware of the ploy?

Humans: We hang out and live with the given (taught) assumption that all will be well when the Savior arrives. But what if that is You and you have been convinced it isn’t? What if you believe those who say you are small, or insignificant, or no good? What if we’ve all been mistaken this whole time? This flow, this Life Dance is about partnership … and this partnership will be as great as each individual portion of it … all involved, working for benefit of each other. (In this fashion, we join with what some call “Savior”, as a unit, as a team).

It’s time to break the mold.
Fear must be released.

If you believe you only need to follow the law and do as you are told and everything will be fine … you may be right. But maybe it is the information your heart and your innermost being holds that will set us free.

Seasons come and go … becoming chaotic as mankind attempts the manipulation of them. Poles shift. What was once covered in deep, thick ice is becoming dry land. Refreshed? Ready to grow good, clean life without toxins?

Perhaps this shifting of weather will now tackle the portions of land and waters that have been poisoned. Perhaps the fires, followed by extreme cold, will kill pathogens producing dangerous circumstances for the entire world.

This dance is not as scary as greedy men would have you believe. The dance of life is beautiful, harmonious, and necessary for ALL aspects of life … here, and afar … present, and future.

Observation is plainly showing the smallness of mankinds pathetic nature while attempting to control earths life cycles. What must be cannot be stopped. All the wealth amassed through time will be broken up and redistributed. Power can only be held for a limited time.

Like love … it must be set free, so that all beings get a taste of it, and for each it will be different … yet the same.

Harmonious flow,
Birth and destruction, 
A balancing of all that is … will be.

Tetragrammaton

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetragrammaton

We all want our saviors,
But are unwilling to get up on the cross ourselves.

The ultimate truth is wordless …
It is the silence within the silence.

No one can pass the gateless gate,
So be no one.

Instruction has it that we are to do our spiritual work in private, so that no one else but those in Spirit are in company. Our ego, and need to obtain some sort of praise for ‘doing what is right’ should be kept in check, these are highly personal moments.

Follow the Yellow Brick road comes to mind … 

Blessings of Change

Published November 6, 2018 by tindertender

What needs to change?

When big events or risky situations arise in life they can leave you with questions. Faith and hope are often what gets us through these times. Professionals, highly skilled, who perform surgeries or other healing modalities are trusted, at times our very life is in their hands.

Divine Power is always at work in our lives. Whatever the outcome is, it will provide information, or experience, that can be utilized for good … personally, and in sharing with others who may have the same experience.

In these situations it is important to recognize a new path is opening and there is protection present. A rite of passage is close. As you pass through a new gateway that will bring change, do not be afraid.

It is time for change, and it will be positive. Respect your own natural cycles. Be mindful of seasonal changes and go with the flow, taking these into account in the diet and activity level.

Resisting natural growth or cycles is not useful to developing a smooth and happy life. It is a natural part of life to transform in our minds and in our bodies, and sometimes that can be a scary process. Sometimes change happens that we do not like and cannot control. This brings opportunity to learn resilience and be creative with solutions.

Celebrate in joyful peace. Be contented with what you have. Dance, sing, love, and create without anxiety. It is time to rest and to cease driving forward for a time.

Crone of power, forever watchful, protect me now. Goddess of spring, assist me to accept the natural cycles of change. Protect me as I walk this new path. I ask for your blessing. Lady of Amenity, dweller in this great land, give me joy! Give me happiness! Grant me contentment. Bring me your blessing.

Turning Tides

One of the most disabling circumstances for humanity is, it has been stripped of the capacity to trust. Many, if not all of us, have had our trust abused. At first we believe it’s a solitary situation, so we continue to wear our hearts on sleeve. Then, it happens again. Now naivety is dissolved, and it becomes harder to have faith in the goodness of people, yet we do, again, believe and hope with faith.

Heartbreak after heartbreak, damage untold … causes friendships to be rare, any type of relationship becomes most difficult to build. This circumstance causes anger, pain, despair even.

I look at women, on women’s day, and I see them opening to each other, even though trust is difficult, still they try. It seems many women have moved beyond the thought of another woman taking their man, or whatever. The courage shown and lived is extremely powerful.

Women have decided on a large scale that we need each other if we are to heal ourselves, and the damage in the world. This union of spirit is the only way out of this mess.

There are many men who stand by woman’s side not as an authority, but as a partner, friend, and co-creator of that which is good, blessing us, and the world with their wider vision.

Seeing young people stepping into adulthood with eyes wide open, strong, and only slightly damaged dna is exciting! They are showing grit and integrity which has been lacking for some time.

As I attempt to turn back my own dna damage, I continue to watch the scene, hope is growing once more, for the future.

The Seven Detestable Sins According To The Bible

Published January 20, 2017 by tindertender

Lust – to have an intense desire or need: “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28).

Gluttony – excess in eating and drinking: “for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags” (Proverbs 23:21).

Greed – excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness: “Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more” (Ephesians 4:19).

Laziness – disinclined to activity or exertion: not energetic or vigorous: “The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway” (Proverbs 15:19).

Wrath – strong vengeful anger or indignation: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1)

Envy – painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage: “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation” (1 Peter 2:1-2).

Pride – quality or state of being proud – inordinate self esteem: “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18).

Image result for 7 deadly sins
“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers” (Proverbs 6:16-19). 

So … why do we still do them?

 

Devi: The Great Goddess

Published December 26, 2016 by tindertender

devi.jpgThe eternal, ageless Divine Feminine

Creator and Preserver

As Virgin and Mother, the Goddess is considered to be the very spring from which every kind of love flows into the world. From the vast ocean of her being the morphogenetic field that produces all forms the Goddess gives birth to all living things. The pouring forth of this love-energy from her timeless, formless source into the field of time constitutes a sacred mystery.

Representations of the Goddess as a crouching woman giving birth to the manifold forms of her creation can be found in Indian art. As the Sky-Goddess Aditi, she pervades all space and is mother to the Gods so revered by the Indo-Aryans.

Maya the Sanskrit word for ‘magic’ and ‘illusion’ describes her role as the originator of all material things, all that is perceptible to the senses.

Displaying the protective and maternal side of her nature, she revels in her multitudinous manifestations and joyfully embraces the bounty of her gifts. Sculptures adorning Hindu temples frequently depict the Virgin Goddess as a young, beautiful and voluptuous woman. Sometimes she stands on her own, at others she is paired with her God-consort.

As Earth Mother, she is also a deity closely associated with Nature and fertility. Images of her priestesses, the Yoginis and Saktas, often incorporate organic forms such as branches or vines, symbolising Nature in its most instinctive form, proliferous and fruitful. Plants, leaves and flowers are commonly used in Indian medicine and, when they appear in portrayals of the Earth Mother they are considered to reflect the magical powers with which she is endowed.

Destroyer

As Devimahatma, Mahadevi or Durga (one of her most ancient titles), the eternally existent mother who nurtures and protects her offspring, the Goddess’s influence swept across North India and was particularly popular in the regions of Bengal and Rajasthan.

Famous for her prowess in battle, Durga the Unassailable used the strength of her will, her knowledge and force of action, to defeat the purveyors of evil and to vanquish the demonic forces upsetting the balance of the universe.

Riding on a lion or tiger, her multiple arms wielding auspicious weapons, she was Cosmic Energy personified. When her mission was fulfilled she returned to her mountain home, promising to nourish the earth and protect her worshippers, only returning should her divine force be needed again.

At the height of this great cosmic battle, Durga was aided by the awesome Kali, who burst from her forehead to devour or crush the army of demons. As Kali drank the seed-blood of her enemies, she rendered impotent the destructive phallic power of her assailants.

Black Kali represents the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess. With her disheveled hair and lolling blood-drenched tongue, she presents a fearsome figure.

As the active power of Time, her three eyes look to past, present and future. Her thin waist is encircled by a girdle of human hands, symbolizing the accumulated deeds of karma. Around her neck hangs a rosary of fifty skulls, each one inscribed with a magic letter of the Sanskrit alphabet representing the sacred word, or mantra, which vibrates within the primordial creative energy of the universe.

The Dark Goddess’s four hands are also symbolic of her function: one wields a sword to cleave the threads of bondage, another grasps a severed head, representing the annihilation of the ego. Her two remaining hands are poised in gestures to dispel fear and inspire her devotees with spiritual strength.

We can only be truly human through our connection to the Sacred Feminine. She is part of us and we are part of Her. If we deny our feminine aspect, we lead incomplete lives. She helps us to integrate our body, mind and soul. It is the integration of our masculine and feminine aspects which makes us whole and holy. We can be gentle and strong, intuitive and intellectual, inward and outward, reflective and active. We can love one another and care for each as brothers and sisters, as husbands and wives.
 
We need the Goddess in our lives to repair, to nurture and to heal.

Let Us Do Ourselves A Favor

Published December 4, 2016 by tindertender

We question ourselves. What have we done to so affront nature?
We interrogate and worry God.
Are you there? Ae you there, really?
Does the covenant you made with us still hold?
~ Maya Angelou, Amazing Peace

Image result for pictures of Gods covenantI find myself asking the question a lot. Is He still mine? Even after all that I have been and done? I am curious and  wonder, how can it be that I would be forgiven after the events of the past. I assure myself that I am loved. During my rearing, so called “fathers” came and went, step siblings there for a time, and then gone, never to be heard from again. It struck me that nothing remains the same … ever. I grew into adulthood, and again, people were there for a time, and then they were gone, never to be heard from again. I wondered how my blood father could simply walk away and never attempt to know me … or care.

I wonder too, was this the way it should be? Was it all a necessary journey to solidify my knowledge that there is a greater force in the world than what I can see with my eyes? Having been raised in household(s) that did not include God, I am surprised by this, but I always knew He existed. I would go for long walks in the wilderness and have talks with what I did not see, but felt. I suppose many would call it praying, for me, it was a conversation with an old friend who would never leave me ~ sensed, unseen.

Image result for pictures of hiding behind a false faceThere are those who warn me … they say I let on about too much, I should refrain from letting  my heart and mind, my reality be seen or known. I respond as always, I have nothing to hide. If another chooses to develop an opinion that is not in my favor, that is their issue. Whatever will be, will be. I will not alter myself or my beliefs to make anyone more comfortable. I do not intentionally say or do anything that will cause harm. I practice developing a peaceful mind and heart. I practice every moment, every day. I care.

It is difficult for some to recognize that the need for hiding from one another is not necessary, confirming in our minds our value is. When we sincerely try to do what is right by life, by the earth the water and air, then that is all that is needed. Yes … when young, many of us may have done things that were contrary to this. It is to be expected. We had been trained in the fashion of the day, of the past. Now that we are grown, we have opportunity to pause, look around, break old habits and belief systems, and create our own … new ways of living.

Image result for pictures of love from man on mountainWe are never alone. Even when we feel we are. If we can but recognize this and reach for the One who truly loves us, then He will reach for us in return. It will not happen right away. We must be sincere, and willing to make the change. He knows our hearts, knows our thoughts, He will not be fooled.

Let us do ourselves a favor, and stop playing foolish games in our own minds.
