The Dream Inside

Published October 14, 2017 by tindertender
Inside you is a dream. Inside you lives a vision of life at it’s absolute best.

The world will tell you your dream is unrealistic, and it probably is. But being realistic is not the purpose of your dream.

The dream inside has great value, no matter what it is. For it is authentic, it embodies your highest ideals, and it will drive you to do amazing things.

Pay heed often to that dream, for it guides you in a positive, fruitful direction. It shows you what really matters, and pushes you to be your best in every situation.

You live in an abundant universe, but the abundance by itself has no meaning. What’s inside you is what makes it all matter.

Feel that warm, persistent richness of the dream that lives inside. Go ahead, let it give energy and positive purpose to all you do.

— Ralph Marston

Reminders Of Love

Published October 5, 2017 by tindertender

Many factions among people teach that the animal kingdom is here for our use, as we see fit, subject to us.

I see it a bit differently.

As the human race becomes ever more desensitized to crime and the harming of one another … as animals are butchered for consumption, and lands, air and waters poisoned, prohibiting the nourishment of souls …

I see the animals as a reminder of gentle caring, unconditional love, and ever grateful presence. They need us to care. They want us to love. We see their examples of how they watch over each other, how they cry when harmed, or their ‘kids’ stripped from them shortly after birth. They are our opportunity to hold on to and nourish that love that dwells in our hearts.

It is difficult to find another human who will love us the way an animal will. Silently the four legged ones, the flying ones, and others … listen to, and love us. They are happy to be of service, longing to be near us when we hurt, easing our pain.

They remind us that love is real.

Without them, we might just forget what love is, considering the repetitive broadcasts of hate and harm and theft and foul … and the ones who act out the programming which they’ve absorbed.

Let us ponder the gracious reminder given to us ~ the beautiful souls put here on earth to keep alive in our hearts the truth that love exists, and that it is very real.

Has it really come to this?

“My ‘Real’ friends will post this …”

What about all the times contact has been attempted, and ignored? What about the times comfort has been given, only ridiculed and rejected because it didn’t ‘fit’ with current  ‘beliefs’? And yet still, attempts are made to reach you. What about “… although years have gone by, dear friends are forever in our hearts …” ?

It is easy to post things thought of as ‘real friends’ on the internet and pretend that we are doing all we can to be a good friend, but when a reaching hand is slapped away, or even walked away from, then the heart has spoken, and this indeed outshines anything one posts on the web.

Love remains, despite it all … for in the end, this is the only thing worth living for.

If Madness Feeds On Anything, Let Madness Feed On Joy

Published September 25, 2017 by tindertender

There is a manipulator behind the scenes, influencing humanity to inflict pain, suffering, and fear upon each other. I look around me, and I realize what I see is a reflection of that madness. They are not powerful, they are not strong, they are not brave … for if they were, they would admit error and work toward changing their own hearts. No … they choose to cause suffering and then they feed off of the pain and fear that results from it.

I thought it necessary to starve the madman and those with him, however, upon further pondering, I realize their diet simply needs to change. Instead of feeding on suffering and fear, they ought be made to swallow joy and calm, care and compassion, Love over hate.

Osho_1

When we recognize that we are under this influence, we can then begin to alter our own consciousness, cultivating joy within our own hearts and minds and lives. It need not be seen or agreed with by others, only known to us. When we stop hurting ourselves and others, when we instead paint, or dance, or walk in the forest, or create in any way … whatever it is that lets us visualize and then feel the joy over our accomplishments, we then recognize the sovereignty within, and we are closer to our true selves.

Let us work toward cultivating peace in our hearts, forgiveness of self and for others. This is what will eradicate the madman.

Joy occurs, self realized power of creation comes into our awareness. The manipulator is left with that … and it is this which will strip him, and those with him, of their power over this world.

War on this and war on that is not the answer, it only creates more pain, more suffering, more fear and hatred. This is what they want, this is what strips us of our power and makes us as ‘food’ for the manipulator.

Sovereignty-is-True-Equality
Let us claim our sovereignty, let us come into the awareness that permission is not needed to stand in glory … not greed, or power of possessions and a controlling authority … but true authority over our own lives. No man … indeed no entity, has the right to strip us of what belongs to us … our inner power, our ability to create calm within the storm.

I am a sovereign being who has authority over this life. I see you, and I have shown you how it is done. It is possible to walk in madness, and then walk straight out of it, coming back, consciously, choosing joy, compassion and care. You have been fired, the job you’ve been employed at for so long has now ended. No longer will you be rewarded for any work done there. You have a new task, one in which your only payment will be sovereign truth, care and compassion. Your diet has been changed. No longer will you feed on fear and pain. NO. Now you will experience wonderment, innocent love and glee. You will nurture this in your own self. You will do this, or you will go hungry. You will starve. You will cease to be. The Cycle. Ends. Here. Now.

O Sole Mio ~ What A Wonderful Thing

Published September 24, 2017 by tindertender

Neapolitan Italian Text
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole,
n’aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe’ ll’aria fresca pare già na festa…
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole.

Ma n’atu sole
cchiù bello, oje ne’.
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
O sole
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

Quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne,
me vene quase ‘na malincunia;
sotto ‘a fenesta toia restarria
quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne.

Ma n’atu sole
cchiù bello, oje ne’.
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
O sole
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

English Translation
What a wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
What a wonderful thing a sunny day.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
I’d stay below your window
When night comes and the sun has gone down.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!
