Sentient Life and Suffering

Published August 2, 2018 by tindertender

“After losing my son, I saw footage of a mother cow collapsing in the mud with grief as they carried her calf away from her. Just as I did when they carried my son’s body away. It’s why I’m vegan.”

Those who have heart … those who don’t …
and those who have yet to find it.

Light-hearted Seriousness

After checking on that, I find that the one doing the baking  has other ideas … the oven is currently being used to make their dinner, then cookies. Oh well, a good pinch of cookie dough took care of the crave for a time anyhow.

Sometimes the seriousness of current circumstances needs to be set aside, as difficult as that may be.

The vision as I close my eyes clears for a nano-second, instantly covered once more by darkness, or a ‘veil’. Why is it that this scene is held from me? Who is it that blocks my view?

Where do black holes really lead to? One would think with all the many decades of CERNs experiments there would be answers by now … and I believe there are, yet, like so many other things in this world the general population are not informed of the discoveries.

We must hone our personal connections, skills of ‘seeing’, and understanding. The internet is great for many things, yet the only way to discover what isn’t being told is to stop relying on that format which places information before us causing us to be lax in our studies, and tune into that which is being held back.

The ‘connection’ of the world wide web originally existed long ago and united more than just that which is on this planet.

“Fantasy” has told of sky bridges and keys and links to things and life forms which may be far beyond our current comprehension. Know that these things are absolute, only called fantasy for most cannot absorb it as reality.

You’ve noted the horrible acts of some. Images and stories of these things spread like a wild fire and infect empathic people with rage. (There are more of us than you may be aware, for we are called sensitive and told we care too much. You may be one.) He who harms becomes he who would be harmed, and so on, and so on, and so on.

This cycle is our responsibility to break. Our energies have been manipulated and steered for a very long time. They bait you, then they chuckle to themselves as they watch you rage. They feed off the power you emit, draining you. It is purposeful, it is planned, it is calculated.

Rather, when you feel the surge, remember this powerful force created by you and take control, break the rotation … use it for good.

Starve the beast.

And then treat yourself to dessert, alone or with a friend. Share the joy, create laughter and cherish your peace.

Shadows will shrink, and those who dwell there will disappear in the beautiful light birthed and formed by your mastery.

Pie … there is always Pie,
baked two days ago.
I suppose I can start there …

Veg and Flower

This morning I had a fabulous time with a friend as we walked along the river and took pics of pigeons, geese, and ducks. Getting a photo of them in flight isn’t the easiest task!

After coming home I decided to plant flowers where my garlic once was. The chamomile harvest is over, so I took the dead stems out and planted flowers in the wheelbarrow too.

My hollyhock is doing pretty good. It seems the growth of things really got a slow start this year. The tomatoes are starting to ripen. Bell peppers are not flowering. I’m beginning to wonder if I got a bad batch of seed. I heard if GMO crop seeds are harvested, and then planted, they will not reproduce. Maybe this is what is going on.

At any rate, I am quite happy with the looks and progress of my little garden, so since it is warm and I was up at 4 a.m., I do believe it is nap time.

It seams the earth has sucked out the amped up energetics of the morning.

ZZZZzzzzz …….

So Tired …

Published July 26, 2018 by tindertender

This is one warm evening! Tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable, the hours tick on by.

They speak of opportunity. They say how, “You stay when no one else will” … I say, “It’s more complicated than that” ... but is it?

She wears a red dress and a red beret, and there’s a fuzzy pom pom on top. Fair skinned beauty with mid length, auburn hair in waves, she looks at me from the corner of her right eye, chewing on her thumb nail … contemplating.

Finally I get up and go to the kitchen. If one can’t sleep on a hot night, may as well rise and get ice cream if available, right? Climbing back into bed I eat it, bite by tasty bite, dogs eager to share. I recall a video I watched comparing the ‘melt rate’ of different brands of ice cream and wonder, is this the one that did not melt?

After checking … Aaahh geez, it is … I guess the one possible plus here is that mine says “ice cream” and not “frozen dessert”. Still, leaves me with a funny taste in my mouth … or maybe its my imagination.

I wonder how companies can be allowed to poison people with their products. There are so many additives, differing chemical concoctions ~ not only in ice cream, but in nearly everything sold at the grocery market nowadays.

Then I think of alcohol, cigarettes, vaccines, fluoride, plastic and the water supply. A study published by Mayo Clinic a few years back reveals that 70% of Americans take at least one prescription medication. The same study shows that 20% of Americans are on five or more medications. It was also revealed that prescription drug use among Americans has steadily increased over the past 10 years.

Geoengineering and weather manipulation by HAARP come to mind, the chemicals needing to be sprayed to make this modification happen are ‘raining’ down on our heads whenever they choose.

I am so tired … my eyes are heavy. Perhaps getting this off my chest and out of my mind, laid out on the digital ‘paper’ will allow enough relaxation to actually fall asleep for awhile.

Try, try, try again.

To Say “I Didn’t Know” Is No Longer Valid’

Published July 19, 2018 by tindertender

Daily so many people eat the flesh of innocence while they slander those who take human life. Animals are innocent, like children, and they are brutalized and slaughtered and eaten, every day.

I was raised eating meat. I did not like it as a child, most do not. But their ‘guardians’ force them to eat it, and over decades these children become accustomed to it, just as the young person who takes their first drink of alcohol knows it tastes putrid, yet drinks it anyway due to peer pressure. (I came to realize the horror of this cycle several years ago, and have been learning and practicing a new way since).

These habits have been passed down through generations, and there are better, more humane ways of getting nutrition and finding a happy place.

Participation in this cycle, whether doing the killing, or doing the eating, guilt is shared equally. It is no more ‘okay’ than eating a human child, or the family pet.

The mindset that humans are lords over life and command who lives and who dies, is absurd. In this thought process, all are militant, cannibalistic bringers of suffering to the earth.

Lying to self and making excuses does not excuse … damages to life and fear added into the world is the only creation this brings. Participants, if not willing to accept responsibility and work toward eliminating pain and fear, cannot ever be part of peace and joy.

If you eat meat, you may as well eat other people who eat meat. Some say this is the best way to get protein. Using that logic, why choose a species that is vegetarian? May as well choose a meat eater, since by this insane idea, those who eat meat must have more protein in their bodies.

One day being a cannibal may be all you get, if the animals become sparce, and you haven’t learned how to grow nutritious foods … Is this the world you wish to continue creating and live in?

Barren … Or No?

Older now, childless, I ponder what my life means, what good has come of it. Has there been benefit to life? What have my contributions been to the health and wellbeing of a people? On the surface, it appears to be ‘not much’.

I vow that the blood within my body, which potentially could have went to a child carried, will be given so that someone else may continue to live.

What else do I have to give? I have time, and food, so I create a dish to be shared with two different deserts. It will feed several people today, and I will sit and share this meal with them, happy in heart at the opportunity to do so.

I will provide supplies to the group for future gatherings, I will make certain that these supplies are as planet friendly as possible.

I will listen as the elders speak, happy to be alive and have the invitation to do so. I will clean after them, and I will feel blessed to give service to them, for they reciprocate as well … the gift we give each other.

This life will count for something by the time I am finished. What I do will actually matter to someone, even though I may never meet them.

Together, with life in the spirit realms, we donate our blood, our time, and our patient care and compassion. We hope to grow connected, conscientious peace, to somehow be a blessing in this world rather than a detriment.

The day has begun, and let it continue as the sun shines on our faces, as we share with each other.
