Light-hearted Seriousness

Published August 1, 2018 by tindertender

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 …

Fervent Study, Catch and Release

Published July 29, 2018 by tindertender

During these breaks in the work week I dive relentlessly into training myself to connect with and decipher information which comes my way. It is quite intense and seems to be growing more forceful.

No one starts out on any journey as a seasoned traveler, or holding absolute clarity of what they are doing. Building skills, in whatever one chooses to spend time with, takes practice and determined steadiness, even when things do not seem clear.

The most sincere path includes being vulnerable, sharing lessons learned along the way and the knowledge gained with others … perhaps assisting another on their own journey.

There comes a time when the ‘old’ must be released in order to make way for the ‘new’. This can be quite difficult, for often the letting go of what is familiar is painful, frightening even. Forward movement cannot be embraced until the past is given wings. Entering uncharted territory is always uncomfortable, but it is also the beauty of life!

Saying no to what compels the soul is damaging to ones sense of freedom. How often do we choose to remain in the gilded cage for fear of flight? Priorities must be clarified and acted on to facilitate progression.

Listen to your heart. What is it that fills you with enthusiasm? Are you honoring that which sparks the inner fire of you, or are you denying it? There may be procrastination going on, that old hook that hinders so many creative explorations.

It is important to be affirmative and focus on what your soul is seeking. Remember, it is you who you will spend the rest of your life with, be happy in what you choose to do with that time.

Often we find our self in circumstance which are quite comfortable. The ‘struggle’ has eased, and although not perfect, we tend to put up with things that are not catering to our highest and greatest good, simply because we do not want to fight any more. There is a problem with that though … true living is a journey of an upward spiral, and relaxing into a situation which does not allow for movement is stagnation.

Life is about continuously rebirthing our self. If we stop doing that, we grow old and tired in the rut we have chosen. Boredom, although seemingly comfortable, does not feed the soul, or help the spirit shine.

Journey To Wholeness

Published March 28, 2018 by tindertender

Everyone wishes to be heard, even the quiet ones. Various circumstances in life will contribute to how well one is able to exert themselves in speaking up. There may be doubt as to whether what they have to say is significant or not, depending on the responses they receive.

Truth is, all people are on a journey of self discovery, finding balance in the role they play within the universe.

Teamwork

There is an authority which speaks through every … single … person. Some have been on the journey of understanding for 2 years, some for 10 years, and others for 15+ years, and then there are those who have been on the path even longer. Still, this authority is within each of them, with varying levels of knowledge wishing to be shared with others who may have no other way of hearing but through the mouth of another human, and the ear they were born with.

I ask, is there truly such a thing as oneness? Or is this just an explanation which is used to get people to relinquish their personality traits as insignificant? Sometimes this is how it is read, and perhaps it is only in the presentation of the topic.

There are some who feel powerless. Life throws them topsy turvy every which way. Instantly they may wonder what they did to deserve this treatment which may cause them pain. Empowerment … this is where a good teacher will build on the confidence of people.

There are indeed many old patterns which must be stripped away in order to make room for more positive, stronger perspectives. There is a way to do this without talking down to a person though. It’s a slippery slope, this teaching without stripping one of personal significance.

Sharing ideasThe beauty in sharing of knowledge is in the allowing, of letting the example presented be adapted as seen fit by the individual … as much as, or as little as, they are comfortable with at the time. All good ideas are best when they seem as if they are our own.

When people come together with the common understanding that power meshes … the power in you, the power in me, that power becomes we, created by the bits of you and me and others … all of the traits that one may have great strength in, while another individual has great strength in another area of life … shared between us the whole becomes very strong, much stronger that were we to remain alone.

So … some call it Oneness, some call it Unity, some call it The Whole … I prefer the latter for it speaks to me of every individual with their varying strengths brought together in conscious cooperation for the benefit of all.

Every person is in their own space of the journey. All are doing what is necessary for their growth at the moment, even if it is not obvious to the outsider looking in. Sharing information, not as an authority (for none of us are) helps to lift each other, should a rising be chosen. Perhaps something I share makes you go AH HA!!! and perhaps something you share with me makes me do the same.

Wonderful exchanges such as these will send us all on an upward spiral as we fling the old out and away, and embrace the new which gives us wings (so to speak).

Time To Heal

Published February 13, 2018 by tindertender

Divinity, in my mind, is about respect, compassion and honor. It doesn’t force itself on anyone. Instead, it sits back and allows people to live their lives as they wish, waiting for the time when they will be in a position to kick back and dwell in the afterlife of their choosing, the world they create.

Become awareUnfortunately, there are many who live in a constant state of chaos and ill will. They spin hurt and harm wherever they go, in all of its forms. This is the world many create, and when the body quits them, they will do everything they can to escape their fate. This includes butting in on other humans lives, trying to find an escape route into something more pleasant.

This could be why so many are behaving in such a brash manner, being completely selfish, for they are under the influence of these others who have realized too late their error.

Humanity is equipped with a will so strong it can overcome all obstacles, ALL of them, yet they often choose to be embraced, and then to return the embrace, of ill will. This is no excuse for bad behavior.

The bulk of energy spent in life should be given to self, as one fortifies their own mind in ability to withstand these attacks, and come back to center, stronger than before. There’s a difference between caring for self, and being selfish.

Anger is a serious issue. I know this is true … personal experience has brought all kinds of it to my mind and life, leaking into the lives of those around me. I also know it is choice which allows the release of it. The human will is strong and determined, whatever it is applied to will be.

The fate of the world really does lie in our hands, in our determination. Pain and anger will cause a person to retaliate, often upon those who had nothing to do with the creation of their pain. Many times, the ones we think cause our pain or anger, have only set our triggers of an underlying issue. Until this is dealt with, all people we deal with will eventually flip a trigger, and we’ll swim in pain and anger. Not only personally, but it will be inflicted into the world, causing the same ol’ same ol’ crap we’ve seen, over and over in its cycle.

Time to heal_1Often it is the pity we have for those suffering which keeps us trapped in scenarios which are hurtful. The fact is, we are the most important factor in our lives. If we do not show sufficient compassion to our self, we will never be able to give proper care to anyone else … truth.

Here is the advice of one … people who suffer anger and pain ought to delve deep inside, find the cause and deal with it, heal it. Those who suffer at the hands of those in pain and anger … walk away, reclaim your energy and do not let it be used to flame the fire of this persons issue. Instead, harness it and use it to heal yourself.

Where attention goes, energy flows.
It’s time to starve out anger and pain.
It’s time to heal.

 

 

Double Edged Sword

Published December 21, 2017 by tindertender

There was a time I wanted to be a Private Investigator, then life took me another way. I left that dream of what a future might look like had it gone differently. In today’s world, those skills are badly needed, for with all of the lies and schemes, it is difficult not to get caught in the trap, the ‘fake news’ is so wide-spread, and to have it spin in the mind, and spill into personal life, is not the most favored thing to experience … it does no good.

old-sword-2-1024x768Some may see that these falsities have been happening for many decades, centuries even ~ generation after generation these fabrications have been passed down. The recognition of it much quicker now given the investigative communication tools we’ve been using.

It is ‘bearing false witness’ which creates so much misery in life. I am as guilty as anyone who finds their thought in a web. When something is seen, promoting shock, one wishes to DO something, anything, to bring light to it, to end it. Unfortunately these are twisted methods created by twisted minds to spin pain and defense into the world. It’s working, it’s been working for a very long time.

So what now? Now that we see it, now that we know. On one hand a careful consideration is given, a pulling back, a not wanting to be misled, or to mislead. Yet, there is the question of ‘what if’ it is true? Shouldn’t everyone now about it? Shouldn’t it be pushed into the open for all to see?

Oh, this double edged sword is difficult to bear.
Is there anyone who is able to wield it properly?

Important Questions

Published December 18, 2017 by tindertender

Important questions
Is it possible to be patient and kind to ones self, while (seemingly) so many others are not able to be patient and kind, showing instead hostility?

Is it true, that if in a room with a hostile person, that same hostility will be absorbed by others in the room?

Is it possible to cultivate inner peace while battling negativity, or does the negativity negate any attempt at inner peace?

Does anyone really know?
