Elder’s Meditation 9-5-19

Published September 5, 2019 by tindertender

“Decisions that have been made for the last couple of centuries have been decisions made without the presence of a real God….from the vision, not of God, but of money.”

— Tom Porter, MOHAWK

As we view the world today, it’s easy to see the people are off track. We are no longer living in harmony. Focusing on the material only leads us from the path of the Creator. We must now pray for ourselves and the people in a pitiful way. We must be humble and ask the Great Spirit to intervene because if we don’t, our children will continue to have troubles. They are acting out our behavior as adults. Today is a good time to start. We need to get the spiritual way back into our lives. We need to focus on the spiritual.

My Creator, help me to focus on the spiritual way.

It All Started With A Rainbow

Published September 2, 2019 by tindertender

As I pulled out of my driveway for the weekend I looked left and saw this beauty. It was only this stretch. I’m not certain if there was additional rainbow behind those clouds, and the colors of the portion I could see were quite intense.

Before I made my way up the hill I took a bit of a joy ride and saw this covered bridge and another building just to the side of the road, slightly beyond the bridge.

Just below was the river (creek).

While running around in open field I received four doses of Bee Medicine 🐝 and a love bite for good measure. It is amazing how shifting perspective changes from a venomous encounter to a dosage for health … mind, body, spirit. Bees sense when we need a little of what they offer, and they always deliver.

I never knew I could fall in love with so many people at once.

I learned this weekend that sometimes when we shed our past it will still occasionally rear it’s head and fight strongly to survive. At this moment I also understood (yet again, and more clearly than before) that I am always at choice as to how I will respond to these moments. With assistance from chosen family, I am happy to say that this moment dissipated in under 30 minutes, replaced with love, and a return to joy.

Knowledge is such a blessing as I age … my own, and others’ as they share freely.

Many people came to this Green Corn ceremony and celebration. It was incredible and amazing how everyone assisted, cared for, and were personally involved with each and every person … and animal.

I was able to wear my first two ribbon dresses I had sewn and also try out the first pair of moccasins I created. Adjustments will happen and new garments and boots will be constructed for next Corn Planting ceremony and celebration.

I gained a “Grandpa” and was gifted training from two Grandmas on dance steps, how to hold my shawl properly, and how to move to the music in a fashion that matched the drum tempo, always pausing forward movement for the Honor Beats, dancing in place.

I learned how to pollinate the corn 🌽 also. I was gifted red corn ears from The Blue Clan and will try my newly learned process, teaching myself how to grow great, full ears of corn at harvest. It is going to be fantastic!

I am learning so much from my chosen Brothers and Sisters it fills my Heart, heals my Spirit, and nourishes my Soul.

As I sit here, all things in their place and myself finally cleaned up after four days of Sacred Relation in a dry camp, I am completely at peace. Completely. Relaxation like this doesn’t come along too often, so I will start projects that will be utilized in our next gathering, and as I create, I will think of my chosen family, loving them, excited to see them again … All of them … and the others who will come in future.

A return to the Sacred Ways is happening … now. There are so many who feel in their hearts the truth. That we have never been alone, and when we assist each other in a good way, with love and empathy in our hearts and minds, ALL honorable circumstances are possible.

Bless the Tradition Keepers, those who have safeguarded the Old Ways, so that we may return to a life of Peace.

Space … Time … Love … Fundamentals of Life

Published August 22, 2019 by tindertender

We all have to eat shit in our lives. Literally, figuratively, whatever. Regurgitated shit spewing in faces everywhere we go. The thing is, this experience is also the forging fire. That which tries to break us, by feeding us on garbage, we turn into a transformative fire that makes us so much more than we could have ever imagined.

It often resonates through familial linage, through constant connections, various incarnations … and the ‘shit storm stuffers’, when they’ve realized you’ve developed a taste for shit and smile anyway, living your best life, will scratch their heads wondering how they lost their grip on your mind, your soul.

We have all suffered pain … from childhood, relationships, job status, income level and all that entails. Often, especially the younger ones, holler, swear, fight, hurt self, hurt others … actions that scream, “I am in pain! I am suffering! Take this from me!”, and they put that pain, anger, rage on others, perpetuating the pain cycle, growing it. Playing the game of the chaos maker, not even aware that they are doing the dirty deeds required for that one to remain in control … of them, of us, of everything.

This cycle must stop. We must become aware, reclaim our energies, our efforts and redirect them to the “polar opposite” of suffering. Take it ALL and create pain’s polar opposite rather than being puppet, slave to emotional bondage. This pain must be transmuted at the personal level, no one else is going to ease it for you.

This is sacred, transformative work, highly valued and desperately needed, should we wish to create a peaceful alternative to what we’ve had for many decades.

Polarity: it’s one of the seven Universal Laws.

http://www.yogebooks.com/english/atkinson/1908kybalion.pdf

Television programs, video games, desensitizing adults, and now youth. Desensitizing them to the chaos in this world, encouraging them to create more of the same. Making brains numb, and zombified when it comes to empathy for others.

Newscasters have become nothing more than “talk show hosts”.

Sitting in the dark, candles are flickering. I can see it, even with my eyes closed. And the gong sounds … water drips from the ceiling in this cave. The sounds of singing bowls echo … echo …

We all like to think we are a main player in this game. No one wants to realize they’ve been a pawn all along. Some may even tell you you’re a main player to get you to continue the “cycle”, the damages.

People want to believe they are worthy so badly they often do things their consciousness pings them on … yet they agree to it simply for a status boost, not realizing they, too, are being abused.

Claim your energies, retract them from those who have manipulated your power to their benefit. Bring it home, and create what your heart longs for … is it Peace? Is it Relief? Is it empathy, compassion, connection and care?

Are you able to see yourself in your fellow human being yet? Or are you still driven by the differences?

Joy Ridin’ On A Week Night

Published August 15, 2019 by tindertender

Work was slow yesterday afternoon so I decided to take a little time for me.

I traveled to Timberline Lodge where, to my sweet surprise, a duet was singing music, and it was beautiful. Here are some pics I took on my way up the mountain.

My dinner was a delicious roasted veggie sandwich on a ciabatta bun with a robust tomato soup. Yum. Huckleberries are one of my favorites, which is why I also bought a piece of cobbler to go.

Check out what I saw at the top of Mt Hood last night. Crazy thing, as I stood there for 10 minutes gawking, no one else seemed to see it … weird.

I was able to see all the way the Bend, what I know is a 4 hour drive from where I live. Incredible to see it from this vantage point, to think of all the people between here and there. Thinking of the love shared, and also the cruelty happening just under the trees.

It really is amazing to see the world from up here. It makes me think of what “the man on the mountain” must see when he looks out upon us.

I love mountain flower bushes.

There was a symbol on the chimney I’m not sure of. Perhaps someone just likes to think of high noon a lot?

A beautiful theater was there. I stood at the front of it to capture photo and imagined what it might be like to speak from that position. Really cool stuff! I thought I had a pic of the entire seating, but looks like I only got the right side. There are three sections, tierd like this.

The trees really take a beating up this high from the winds.

But oh my word … being up here, one feels a little closer to heaven.

I stopped by a waterfall on my way back. It was so fresh smelling, and the sounds …. delish.

Have a great day friends. May the one who loves you shower you with blessing, even if that someone is you.

Joy Riding Play Day

Published August 10, 2019 by tindertender

Today I met up with a friend in the city I used to live in. We had a beautiful breakfast together and then walked the waterfront.

Along the way we came across a somewhat marshy area that had a fairly new bridge constructed.

After we walked for a time we made our way to an art studio. We bought canvases and poured paint and went to work. What an enjoyable way to spend some time.

Mine:

Afterward, we walked about a block to the local theater and watched a movie about how rock and roll was created, “Echo in the Canyon”. It was amazing to see how Folk music evolved into the hits so loved of the 60’s.

All in all, one of the most lovely days I’ve had in awhile … thank you friend.

Man’s Love

Published July 7, 2019 by tindertender

“The stronger the man, the safer woman is to expand. If a woman has to constrict herself in your presence, then you do not have strength enough to contain her vulnerability, her openness, her trust, or her creative productions.”

Seas-Wicca Psalm

“Ever as I pass through the ways do I feel the presence of the Gods. I know that in aught I do they are with me.

They abide in me, and I in them, forever. No evil shall be entertained, for purity is the dweller within me, and about me. For good do I strive and for good do I live.

Love unto all things.

So be it, forever.”

-Raymond Buckland
