Free ~ No Longer Your ‘Assistant’

Published November 18, 2018 by tindertender

After all these years I must tell you that this is why I will not stand with you. I have experienced your presence while you speak about me as though I cannot hear you, you behave as though I am not worthy of a one on one conversation. This is not acceptable, I am not at your disposal, nor am I willing to give you any further energies.

I have tried many times in the past to convince myself that we are alike, that you must have good reason to behave the way you do, that if I were in your position I might even do the same. Regardless, I am not in your position, and I do not behave the way you do, even though I have good reason to.

In this manner, we are nothing alike. In fact, you could say that we are polar opposites. While you are very good at mimicking goodness, sooner or later your inner self shows. It brings down the House you try to build, time and time again. The foundation is not true.

I am sorry for you, but I do not pity you, for you have consciously, fully aware, chosen to do the things you do, putting forth influence onto the vulnerable and unaware. Many lives have been affected … or ended, due to your selfish behaviors and trespasses.

I would like to say I understand, and that I forgive you. I will also say that I will do whatever I can to ensure that the privileges you’ve been taking advantage of will never be fully loosed, or enjoyed by you.

This is a time for those who have been running with you to open their eyes and get serious about what they choose. In the ‘end game’ nothing could be more serious.

How many life times does one soul need to determine where their heart resides? How long does it take to reclaim the spirit and mind from those who have manipulated actions and circumstances to coincide with greed or need for power?

When will mankind discover that no one has more authority over their life than they themselves do? People are always looking for a ‘leader’ or a ‘teacher’, not realizing that they can, and do lead, and teach … they lead their own lives, getting what they give, or accepting what they allow. They are in process of teaching others what to, or not to, be and do, shared through example. They are in process of being ‘taught’ by those they have perhaps not been willing, or able, to acknowledge.

All of this, all of it is known to the gentle heart who wishes to participate in the healing of the world, of life in general.

You know this. You take advantage of the gentle souls who long for peace. You lead them to believe that if they trust you, if they agree to help you, that peace will be. But peace is not coming forth from the chaos you bring. It has only become more chaotic, more solidly enriched with pain, supported by fear, by paranoia.

I hear you laugh as you see the affect you bring to people. I sense your pride in your ability to manipulate emotion, allowing, or ending life … as you will.

As a collective, this I know to be true. You have dared to attack the unwitting. The selfishness of your goal leaves no room for compassion. You say, “I like this one” as though they were an object … not someone who feels, thinks, loves, and acts. You behave as though you do not see the truest power that resides in them. Maybe you do, and simply pride yourself on the methods used to extinguish that bright light within them.

I cannot silently stand by and watch you ruin lives.

Those of us who are on to you know full well that the ones you attack are not only fighting you, but fighting the others who you have controlled. Double whammy, the people who join you are not even aware they are under your influence, actually doing your bidding … as you laugh, all kicked back enjoying yourself. I am amazed how well you keep secret the influences you lay upon minds, they so often are not even aware that these ‘thoughts’ and ‘desires’ are not even their own.

There is a time coming soon when we will find out how this goes. So many believe they already know. Unfortunately, all they really know is what they’ve been told to believe, what they’ve been taught as factual. The actual ‘experience’ of knowing eludes many.

On this level, I am torn. I would never wish my experience on anyone, for I know many who did not make it through. Yet at the same time, if something doesn’t shake the ol’ tree, no one will ever see clearly, or at least come to the knowledge that what they thought they knew was a lie, all along.

May the eyes and minds of humanity be quivered ever so slightly to break up the rigidity of ‘lessons learned’ which have developed into habits. May they be ‘gently nudged’ into motion and discovery of their inner, innate power for goodness. May it be done quickly, thoroughly, and with minimal ‘safeties’ on. May the hearts of mankind be unshackled and set free, without erupting into deep sadness, depression, remorse or anxiety. May they see through the fog that has been placed upon them, may their blood remain warm, and their strength and courage steadfast, their hearts pure.

… and may all that is good bless me with the same.

You Have The Remedy

“You do not know it, but in you is the remedy; you cause sickness, but this you don’t see. You are but a small form … this, you assume: but you’re larger than any universe, in reality. You are the book that of any fallacies is clear, in you are all letters spelling out, the mystery. You are the Being, you’re the very Being … It: you contain That, which contained cannot be!”

It’s Obvious You’ve Been Made For A Reason

Published November 18, 2018 by tindertender

“Know yourself, because … if you know yourself, you will understand, that good and bad, come from you. It’s good that you should know your own existence: you’ll become amongst others … of a higher existence. When you’re knowing yourself you know everything: with this knowledge you’re free from every evil thing. As you don’t know you, you don’t know your worth! If you can see your Self, you will see God, the Truth! Your servants, seven planets and nine skies will be; it is a great shame that You are a slave to your body! If you should be looking for that blessing so blissful, don’t be chained down by animal pleasures, blissful! Become like men who are great … don’t eat or sleep! Explore yourself like who the world explore and seek! Belonging to the realm of animals is food and sleep: the spirit that’s in you, lives by knowledge … to keep. Begin waking up … how long will you keep sleeping? Look at yourself … you, are a really wonderful thing! Think … and remember, from where you are coming: why is it fact, that in this prison you’re languishing? Break out from your cage and be flying to your tower …

It is so obvious that you’ve been made for a reason … it is such a shame if you don’t accomplish. It’s a pity, a shame for an angel to Satan be obeying: its such a pity for a king, a doorkeeper be obeying …

Upon your treasure you have some dragon squatting: kill that dragon … from suffering yourself be freeing! If you should feed it, you will into a coward change … and would when talking of treasure, become strange. It is like, if you should have in your house a treasure, even if you are sick … in your hand you have the cure! You’ve fallen asleep, how to reach your destination? Talisman fascinates you, but treasure … why, go on? Smash up that talisman and that treasure take up … suffer a little pain, and from yourself … pain, take up!”

Men Cause 100% of Unwanted Pregnancies

Published November 17, 2018 by tindertender

The author, Gabrielle Blair.

Our conversation about abortion places the burden of responsibility on women. I argue men are the root cause.

As a mother of six and a Mormon, I have a good understanding of arguments surrounding abortion, religious and otherwise. When I hear men discussing women’s reproductive rights, I’m often left with the thought that they have zero interest in stopping abortion.

If you want to prevent abortion, you need to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Men seem unable (or unwilling) to admit that they cause 100% of them.

I realize that’s a bold statement. You’re likely thinking, “Wait. It takes two to tango!” While I fully agree with you in the case of intentional pregnancies, I argue that all unwanted pregnancies are caused by the irresponsible ejaculations of men. All of them.

Don’t believe me?

Fertility stats and the calendar, it’s easy to see that men are the issue here.
Let’s start with this: A woman’s egg is only fertile for about two days each month. Yes, there are exceptions, because nature. But one egg which is fertile two days each month is the baseline. And those fertile eggs are produced for a limited number of years. This means, on average, women are fertile for about 24 days per year.
But men are fertile 365 days a year. In fact, if you’re a man who ejaculates multiple times a day, you could cause multiple pregnancies daily. In theory, a man could cause 1000+ unwanted pregnancies in just one year. While it’s true that sperm gets crappier as men age, it doesn’t have a fertility expiration date; men can cause unwanted pregnancies from puberty until death. So, starting with basic fertility stats and the calendar, it’s easy to see that men are the issue here.
As a society, we really don’t mind if women suffer, physically or mentally, as long as it makes things easier for men.
“But what about birth control?” you might ask. “ If a woman can manage to figure out how to get an abortion, surely she can use birth control to avoid unwanted pregnancy, right?”
Great question. Modern birth control for women is possibly the most important invention of the last century, and I’m very grateful for it. It’s also brutal. The side effects for many women include migraines, mood swings, decreased libido, depression, severe cramps, heavy bleeding, aneurysm — and that’s just a small fraction of them.
Discouragingly, a promising study on a new male contraceptive was canceled in large part due to… (wait for it)… side effects. To be clear, this list of side effects was about one-third as long as the known side effects for commonly used women’s contraception. There’s a lot to unpack in that story alone. I’ll simply point out that, as a society, we really don’t mind if women suffer, physically or mentally, as long as it makes things easier for men.
But, men, I’ve got good news. Even with the horrible side effects, women are (amazingly!) very willing to use birth control. Unfortunately, it’s harder to get than it should be, but that doesn’t keep women from trying. Birth control options for women require a doctor’s appointment — sometimes multiple doctor’s appointments — and a prescription. They’re not always free, and often not cheap. Some are actually trying to make female birth control options more expensive by allowing insurance companies to refuse to cover them. In addition, contraceptive options for women can’t be easily acquired at the last minute. In most cases, they don’t work instantly.
The pill requires consistent daily use and doesn’t leave much room for mistakes, forgetfulness, or unexpected disruptions to daily schedules. Again, the side effects can be brutal — and not just in rare cases. Despite the hassle and side effects, I’m still grateful for birth control. (Please don’t take it away.) But it’s critical to understand that women’s birth control isn’t simple or easy.
In contrast, let’s look at birth control for men — i.e., condoms. They’re readily available at all hours, inexpensive, convenient, and don’t require a prescription. They’re effective and work on demand, instantly. They don’t cause aneurysms, mood swings, or debilitating cramps. Men can keep them stocked up just in case, so they’re always prepared. They can be easily used at the last minute. I mean, condoms are magic! So much easier than birth control options for women.
As a bonus, most women are totally on board with condoms. They keep us from getting STDs. They don’t lessen our pleasure during sex or prevent us from climaxing. The best part? Cleanup is so much easier — no waddling to the toilet as jizz drips down our legs.
So why would there ever be unwanted pregnancies? Why don’t men just use condoms every time they have sex? Seems so simple, right?

Oh. I remember. Men don’t love condoms. In fact, it’s very, very common for men to pressure women to have sex without a condom. It’s also not unheard of for men to remove the condom during sex without the women’s permission or knowledge. (Pro tip: That’s assault.)

Why would men want to have sex without a condom? Because, for the precious minutes when they’re penetrating their partner, not wearing a condom gives them more pleasure. So… that would mean some men are willing to risk getting a woman pregnant — which means literally risking her life, her health, her social status, her relationships, and her career — so they can experience a few minutes of slightly increased pleasure. Is this for real?

Yes. Yes, it is.

Pregnancies happen when men have an orgasm. Unwanted pregnancies happen when men orgasm irresponsibly.

Imagine a pleasure scale, with pain beginning at zero and going down into the negatives. A good back-scratch falls at 5, and an orgasm without a condom is a 10. Where would sex with a condom fall? A 7 or 8? So, it’s not that sex with a condom is not pleasurable, it’s just not as pleasurable. An 8 instead of a 10.

Let me emphasize that again: Men regularly choose to put women at massive risk in order to experience a few minutes of slightly increased pleasure.

For the truly condom-averse, men also have a non-condom, always-ready birth control option built right in: the pull-out. It doesn’t protect against STDs, it’s an easy joke, and it’s far from perfect. However, it’s 96% effective if done correctly, and 78% effective in practice (because it’s often not done correctly).

Still, many men who resist wearing condoms never learn how to pull out correctly. Apparently, it’s slightly more pleasurable to climax inside a vagina than, say, on their partner’s stomach. Once again, men are willing to risk the life, health, and well-being of women in order to experience a tiny bit more pleasure for roughly five seconds during orgasm.

Think of the choice men are making here. Honestly, I’m not as mad as I should be about this, because we’ve trained men from birth to disassociate sex and pregnancy. We’ve taught them that their pleasure is of utmost importance.

As a general rule, men get women pregnant by having an orgasm. Yes, there are exceptions — it’s possible for sperm to show up in pre-ejaculate — but in most cases, getting a woman pregnant is a pleasurable act for men. But men can get a woman pregnant without her feeling any pleasure at all. It’s even possible for a man to impregnate a woman while causing her excruciating pain, trauma, or horror.
In contrast, a woman can have nonstop orgasms with or without a partner and never once get herself pregnant. A woman’s orgasm has literally nothing to do with pregnancy or fertility — her clitoris exists simply for pleasure, not for creating new humans. No matter how many orgasms she has, they won’t make her pregnant.
Pregnancies happen when men have an orgasm. Unwanted pregnancies happen when men orgasm irresponsibly.
A woman can be the sluttiest slut in the entire world, she can love having orgasms all day and all night long, and she will never find herself with an unwanted pregnancy unless a man shows up and ejaculates irresponsibly. Though our society tends to villainize female pleasure, women’s enjoyment of sex does not equal unwanted pregnancy and abortion. Men’s enjoyment of sex and irresponsible ejaculations do.
Let’s move to the topic of responsibility. Often, men don’t know, don’t ask, and don’t think to ask if they’ve caused a pregnancy. There are often zero consequences for men who cause unwanted pregnancies.
If the woman decides to have an abortion, the man may never even know he caused an unwanted pregnancy with his irresponsible ejaculation. If the woman decides to have the baby, or put the baby up for adoption, the man may never know he caused an unwanted pregnancy with his irresponsible ejaculation either. He may never know there’s now a child walking around with 50% of his DNA.

If the woman does tell him he caused an unwanted pregnancy and that she’s having the baby, the closest thing to a consequence for him is child support. Our current child support system is a well-known joke. Only about 61 percent of required payments by men are actually made, and there are little to no repercussions for skipping out. In some states, failing to pay child support doesn’t even affect your credit.

If a man does pay child support, it doesn’t come close to what is required by a woman in the case of an unwanted pregnancy.

Let’s talk about abortion. When the topic comes up, men might think: Abortion is horrible; women should not have abortions. Never once do they consider the man who caused the unwanted pregnancy.

If you actually care about reducing or eliminating the number of abortions in our country, simply hold men accountable for their actions.

If we’re discussing abortion law — and not how to hold men accountable for irresponsible ejaculations, and the unwanted pregnancies caused by them — we’re wasting our time. Shift the conversation. Stop protesting at clinics. Stop shaming women. Stop debating whether or not to overturn abortion laws. If you actually care about reducing or eliminating the number of abortions in our country, simply hold men accountable for their actions.

What would that look like? A real and immediate consequence for men who cause an unwanted pregnancy. What kind of consequence would make sense? Should it be as harsh, painful, nauseating, scarring, expensive, risky, and life-altering … as forcing a woman to go through a nine-month unwanted pregnancy?
If you consider abortion to be murder, consider this thought experiment: Would you be on board with having a handful of men castrated to prevent 600,000 murders each year? If this argument sounds too provocative, could it be that many of us have a hard time wrapping our heads around a physical punishment for men? We seem to be more than fine with physical punishments for women. Perhaps we care more about policing women’s bodies, morality, and sexuality than we do about reducing or eliminating abortions.

Here’s another prevention idea: All males in the U.S. could get a vasectomy when they are ready to be sexually active. Vasectomies are very safe, highly reversible, and about as invasive as a woman getting an IUD implanted. In most cases, there’s some soreness afterwards for about 24 hours, but that’s pretty much it for side effects. (Take a moment to remember that female contraception options, used by millions of women in our country and billions across the world, have well-known side effects which can be brutal and severe — and yes, also include soreness.) If and when a man becomes a responsible adult, finds a mate, and wants to have a baby, the vasectomy can be reversed and then redone once the childbearing stage is over. Each man can bank their sperm before the vasectomy, just in case.

Don’t like my ideas? That’s fine. I’m sure there are better ideas, and I challenge you to suggest your own. My point is we need to stop focusing on women if we’re trying to get rid of abortions. Think of abortion as the “cure” for an unwanted pregnancy. To stop abortions, we need to prevent the “disease” — meaning, the unwanted pregnancy itself. And the only way to do that is by focusing on men, because irresponsible ejaculations by men cause 100% of unwanted pregnancy.

Ask yourselves: What would it take for you to value the life of your sexual partner more than your own temporary pleasure or convenience?

If you’re a man, what would it take for you to never again ejaculate irresponsibly? A loss of money, rights, or freedoms? Physical pain? Ask yourselves: What would it take for you to value the life of your sexual partner more than your own temporary pleasure or convenience?

Men mostly run our government, and men mostly make our laws. In theory, men could eliminate — or drastically reduce — abortions within months without ever touching an abortion law or even mentioning women. They’d simply need to hold men accountable for irresponsible ejaculations, and legislate accordingly.
To reduce or eliminate abortions, stop attempting to control women’s bodies and sexuality. Because unwanted pregnancies are caused by men.

Theory vs Reality

Published November 16, 2018 by tindertender

How many ‘theories’ have been proven as ‘reality’ throughout time?

As we age, thought processes and belief systems change, sometimes just as drastically as our physical appearance. Considering ‘you’ of ten years ago you may be hard pressed to see yourself there … Foods disliked are now liked or rigid beliefs may have had a shift.

Often we are told the far out and unbelievable are only conspiracies spread by those who do not know any better. We do know now that for decades there has been in place employees who intentionally spread disinformation so that those who try to get the word out about some things are slandered, even by those too afraid to look at the information themselves, preferring to remain naive.

https://www.parcast.com/blog/2018/3/26/10-government-conspiracy-theories-revealed-to-be-true

In order for the plan of chaos to work properly, people must be led to believe all allegations are false. Many people just need to be told what to think or believe, and if it sits well within their safe zone, they’ll fight to make it as real as they are told it is. They will attack anyone who puts the illusion at risk.

Too many times it has been proven that different representatives are basically the same, if not at the start, then by the end. Citizens do not want to believe their representatives would lie to them … sadly, many do not want to admit the truth.

Those who speak of chemtrails or geoengineering, or the use of HARRP technology for weather manipulation are slandered and attacked. Some of the attackers are they who refuse to have their comfort zone altered, others, are hired to start the attack, to work up a crowd who refuse to consider possibilities.

At first those who tried to warn people were attacked, but more and more people became suspicious. The claim that the particles sprayed into ‘prolonged contrails’ were being used to confuse tracking devices, or block out the sun was included in the conversations. We can see deniers turned into sharing ‘partial’ truths, just enough truth combined with falsehood to confuse people about the reality. Still, it is easier to have a conversation about ‘cloud seeding’ than ‘prolonged contrails’ with most people. Its easier to attack, dismiss, and forget what some are trying to share.

We live in a world that is for the most part detached from reality. In the comfort of schedules and normalcy relaxation takes over the mind and outside influences ignored.

It is almost the year 2019. Let us hope that whoever takes office in 2020 with put the brakes on and work toward regenerating community in country shared the world over, rather than further division. With division all will be lost, all of it. We should know the direction it’ll go by 2021. Although I’m fairly certain now, and have been since 2015, I still have hope.

Let the ‘theory’ and ‘prediction’ of yore be found to be just that … theory. May ‘reality’ bring us peace and harmony in a world on the mend.

Break The Program

Published November 15, 2018 by tindertender

I stood upon the forest floor and as my gaze drew to the ground I saw a log, hollow. Upon looking, I saw a creature within this hollowed out log, watching me.

I wonder about nature as it deteriorates, becoming one with the earth once more, only now rather than planting roots, it dissolves into the soil feeding the little critters dwelling there.

Human and animal bodies, all of them, eventually dissolve back into the earth. The soil is enmeshed with generations of life.

“Steel caskets first appeared in the late 1840s“. https://www.assemblymag.com/articles/87043-the-history-of-caskets

Imagine all of the life that was wrapped in cloth, buried in a pine box, or just left to slowly decompose. Think of all the animals killed on highways, or by other animals, or by humans during trophy hunts, among other things. ALL of that life is contributed to the planet, to the earths soil, which supplies us with food, water, and materials to build.

How often do we go about our daily life neglecting to consider the earth we walk upon, or the components of it. Why is it so difficult to know, to admit, and to embrace the unity we share with those who came before us, those who are here with us now (in flesh, and in spirit) and those who will come at a later time?

It seems to me that the public, world-wide, have been corralled into this situation of “me” and “mine” and “forget everyone and everything else”. What little we are allowed to retain after taxation is just enough (for the average person) to get by until the next pay day. Often the taxes paid go to care for others who are able to work, but don’t.

I am aware there are those who physically and mentally cannot do many jobs that are available, and they require assistance. I am also aware of those who just want to skate through life at the expense of others (taking pride in their clever ability to work the system).

When so little remains after a hard work week it is difficult to release what has been saved … to give. But if we do not find a way to open our hearts, to share with each other … if we choose to remain closed off and in the practice of hoarding, we will also be closed off to abundance.

It is hard when there are so many scam artists and thieves. When those who forcibly ‘take’ from others choose to expend their energy in creating fear and pain, they no longer gift the world good … perhaps ‘good’ has left them.

When I mention being open to giving, I do not mean to roll over while thugs demand the bounty.

There will come a time very soon when robber will only have the robber to take from, and the murderer or rapist will only have the same to reflect their actions, and then they will nullify each other’s existence … all of them.

Where will those who choose peace, caring, and love be when all this goes down? Well, I cannot say for certain. I get the distinct feeling they will be just on the outside, looking in. I can only hope this is where I will be, yet at the same time I hope I will not have to watch it end.

In my opinion, people who are uncertain that life continues after the body dies are more inclined to behave in a manner that is destructive. If they knew that life never ends, it only changes, constantly, perhaps actions would be different. We see these changes while in physical form as we age from infant, to toddler, to young child, to teenager, to adult, and then elder. Our appearance changes drastically, as well as our inner person, just as drastically.

When this body quits us, life continues just as before, yet in a different form. I imagine how that might look, and once again my creative visualization stalls.

What does one star appear to be, when viewed by another star?

When a woman looks upon another woman, what does she see? Clothing, vehicle, partner … does she see tenderness, or fear, or anger? Is she able to see depth, or is everything surface level? Cold, or warm? Does she begin to compare herself to this vision she sees? Is she capable of looking deeper, into the nearly imperceptible similarities she has in common with those she observes? Will she be able to stand tall in her uniqueness, while embracing the likeness she shares with others?

Too much time is spent thinking and wishing to be someone or something we are not. Rather, think of something you would like to try, painting, writing, dancing … and then try it. If you don’t really like it, try something else. And so on.

When I first started taking myself out to dinner I was self conscious. It felt as though people were staring, wondering why I was alone. It took a while to get past that, to get used to just enjoying life without needing to entertain another, or to be entertained.

Now I do many things I did not do before. Some of these things I am good at, others, I work at. Whatever we do, we should do it while lifting each other, encouraging each other and living the advise we share.

I have a friend who told me I needed to take ‘pride’ in my appearance. What he meant was, “You’re fat, join a gym.” I finally got tired of it and told him he was wrong. What I needed to do was learn to ‘love me’ just the way I am.

There are those in the world who will always point out their perception of what is wrong, or what is right. Many people will work diligently to ‘mold’ those around them, to manipulate circumstances to achieve a certain action – response – action – response. They’ll work very hard to get the results they desire. We see this everywhere in this world. Governments, corporations, different religions, on into the smaller, more personal relationships.

FYI ~ this is a human trait … we all do it, even while many will deny it.

The only cure is to simply stop playing the game. As difficult as the program is to break … treat yourself to participation in the bigger picture.

Burdens Carried

Published November 14, 2018 by tindertender

Burdens carried can weigh us down. Often the burden has become such a part of life its presence is nearly undetectable. The symptoms are masked as physical pain, and perhaps depression, or anxiety.

Is the story of life real, or simply an illusion built around that which is ‘less painful’?

Just underneath consciousness there is a place where communication happens with those who we cannot see. Being quizzed, I woke to hear myself silently answer, “I carry the burden of shame”.

I thought about this periodically throughout the day and have come to the conclusion that this ‘burden’ is facilitated in the mind from birth.

As children many of us are taught that our creations are lacking beauty, that we ourselves are lacking that which makes us lovable. When pure joy rises up in us there is always someone there to squash it. It seems to carry on into adulthood, until it is recognized, and consciously ended. Often we must leave behind those who claim to ‘love’ us.

I wonder about this cycle in the world. It happens everywhere, not limited to this country or that.

As chaos grows on the planet we can see those who facilitate destruction more clearly. They are being called out, exposed for the ‘average person’ to see. This can be quite disheartening, for those we have trusted, and their methods, will be seen plainly.

The tough part of the process is to learn to see our own heart just as clearly as we ‘think’ we see others. This is difficult, for many of us prefer to think we are ‘righteous’ and the others who do harm are not. It is important to know that what we see in the world is also part of our self. The only way to heal it is to recognize it, ask of our self how much of it we see in our own actions and thought patterns, and then heal that.

In the shadows of the mind many things dwell, many things that are difficult to look at, to decipher, and to cast out. So many people project outward, trying to mend the illness of the world, all the while refusing to mend what is in their own heart.

Personally, I am left to discover this ‘burden of shame’ which I carry and make the attempt to find forgiveness where it is concerned … to heal, to shed the weight of it, and to freely rise beyond it … without the use of excuses.

It is a difficult process, for while the inner work is done, those who we see, other people, will attempt to reinforce the negative. At the same time, those who we cannot see will attempt to reinforce the burden we carry, convincing our mind that the burden cannot be released.

This battle is with the invisible realms, attempting to keep us from joy and balance and love. This battle is also with others we can see who are under the influence of those who wish to keep us from happiness.

The key is to observe, not absorb. Outside influences we can hear, and sense, are only that … outside influences. Let them remain as such while you gather your own thoughts and ideas about what you believe will bring healing … to your life, and to the lives your life touches.
