Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.
~ Gary Zukav

This is your life. You own everything in it, the good as well as the bad. Take this ownership seriously, because you can’t change what you don’t own. So, stop looking for causes outside of yourself. All the answers you need come from within. YOU are the source.
~ Gordana Biernat

Love can never be Lost. Love is an expression of Life Itself, an expression of Being… We are born AS Love and falling victim to our conditioned mind – we forget what we truly are. Release the conditioned mind and Love appears in Abundance. We can all remember our Truth…
~ Ginormous Buddha

If we trusted God – that is to say, if we trusted Love – we would know with certainty that Love would never make us wait to ‘become’ enlightened. It is our beliefs in time, in delay, in unworthiness that are blocks WE have made and inserted between us and our own Self-Awareness.
~ Patrick Darling

We don’t attach to things; we attach to our ‘stories’ about things.
~ Byron Katie

The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your action will be.
~ Dalai Lama

We must be true inside, true to ourselves, before we can know a truth that is outside us.
~ Thomas Merton

Smile In Their Faces

In life there will be many who do wrong against you. From a young age all the way to exit from the planet, from the body.

The best thing you can do in the face of these attacks upon your innocence, your naivety, is to smile, and continue to be happy, continue to be love.

Do not let the invisibles behind the scenes, those who manipulate the vulnerable and angry persons to do harm … do not let them steal from you the inherent joy and peace you were born with.

Even if they have succeeded, for a time, reclaim what is yours.

Take back your right to peace, to joy, to happiness. Smile in the face of the devils, laugh if you can. Know you’ve got this.

Nothing Else Matters

Published October 13, 2018 by tindertender

In this seemingly crazy world it can be easy to say ‘nothing else matters’ but that which “I” and “mine” need. It is tempting to close down and shrink our self to those limits, however, humanity has so much more potential than that.

What really does matter?

We see that the more we close ourselves off, the less potential Divine Creation has of flowing in our lives. When we shut off the outside world and focus on our own four walls (or the walls of our flesh should we be homeless), this is the extent we are able to receive also.

Think BIG.

I once was so heartbroken by the suffering I saw in the world, still am. The way I go about thinking of it now is different than it once was. I used to cry, and feel very bad that I could not help every. single. one of them.

Feeling sorry for people does not help them. Even should I not be able to give money or whatever they obviously need, I send blessings, praying for them to receive the strength they need to turn their situation around. It is there, within them … they may have yet to notice, though.

I was once there, living in my car, alone and feeling pretty much hopeless. Somewhere along the line, I gained hope, and my inner strength came back … perhaps it is because someone prayed that I would receive it, I do not know. Life did take a turn for the better, and it was a struggle to climb out of the pit I found myself in. But climb I did, and out I rose.

It is THIS inner fire that is most important to all life. Nurture it, do not let anyone douse it, this is your life! You are king and queen, all of you, all of us, descendants of the Most High! Never forget it.

Asking Questions ~ Working For Peace

Published September 25, 2018 by tindertender

What is true for me?

Asking questions of self can be a liberating exercise. The answers which come out first are only an entry point into deeper meaning and realizations.

For instance, I might say that what is true for me is a desire for family. True family. In my past there were many step fathers and step siblings, they came and went as the wind blew it seems. But deeper than that …

I desire a sense of belonging. We don’t always get to choose who our ‘family’ is, but when the day comes that we are able to choose, sometimes we have to let go of that which was chosen for us.

Truth for me is a longing of connection to those who appreciate the earth and the ancestors, who respect each others decisions, even though we may not always agree.

Freedom, to be and to do what our ‘heart-speak’ whispers to us, as long as it is not harmful or deceitful. Yes, our heart-speak may not be what someone elses heart-speak is, and it may hurt the feelings of another especially if they are smitten with us, but honoring each others heart-speak is essential … for it is this freedom which allows our soul to grow.

Pain cracks open the heart, and what happens to a seed when it ‘cracks open’? It blooms, it grows, in a way that it never would have been able to if it had not been cracked.

Free-will allows us to choose whether we would have this crack ooze poison, or a healing salve which creates a beautiful experience, enriching life and offering possibilities to grow, and to harness strength.

Remaining open after a heart crack is a challenge, but it provides extreme beauty if we are willing to move with it, forward into the next opportunity for love.

So, what is true for me? I long for love, for peace, for belonging, and so I work to cultivate it … I love who I am today, more now than before all of the heart break and rejection. I have discovered that the beauty within me only became richer by my experiences and losses. Even today, I embrace those who deny me opportunity, for I know that the time will come when all will flow quite nicely.

Patience, this is key to all things. Trust in the grander scheme, the higher plan. Humanity cannot possibly know what this is, but it always seems to work out that every need is met (even when we are living in our car, yes, I’ve been there).

Connecting Heaven and Earth is a wonderful thought, and totally possible. Effort is needed, for this connection happens through the human body and mind. If we are wiling to try, if we want it to be, it will be.

Here is an exercise for morning and night and any time you feel the need to fill up or recharge or get grounded. I did this in the restroom yesterday afternoon, it was a great break from number crunching, and brought a sense of peace in the middle of my day … and no one even knew I did it.

Heart Speak

Published September 22, 2018 by tindertender

“Why did you choose him over me?”, he asked.

Centuries old question, arises again and again. It is clear the heart speaks its own language. Often the mind may say, “No” … yet the heart says “Yes”. One cannot deny the heart, for to do so would be untrue to self.

Since self is the one most definitely with us every day of life, self is the one we ought to be true to, regardless of what any other person thinks we ‘ought’ to do, or what they deem best for our future.

The brain does not control our heart. The heart beats on its own, chemistry either connects or repels, it isn’t a brain thing … it’s a heart and body thing, and energetic thing. Honor it … for it is trying to honor you.

When two peoples heart speak is different, let it go. Not everyone is going to feel the same as we do, they too are listening to their own heart speak. Honor their path just as you attempt to honor your own.

Really, it is hard enough to decide what is best in our own world, and many times it is discovered the decision we thought was correct, was not. Yet this is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth! Anyone who would deny an individual this freedom and advancement in knowledge is not ‘friend’.

Trust yourself, and remember, even when you think a decision was wrong, ask of the experience what is there for you to ‘learn’ and consider it a gift … every single time, for it is … the greatest gift one could ever receive.

Life lessons are priceless, even the ones that hurt. Never give up, be true to your heart, and always reach for the stars.

Joy and peace are creations of beauty … be that, share that. When it seems hardest to be the creator of peace and calm care, put that much more effort into it. The world will be of great benefit from your contribution, and you will enjoy the gift you give when you do it.

Woman In Love

Published September 11, 2018 by tindertender

Woman in Love ~ doing anything to keep peace within her life, and the life she shares with the world.

True … some are lost in the realm of creating and experiencing deep pain … but each and every one of them start here … whether as a child, or otherwise. Love does not require war … it is a simple letting go of that which brings us pain.

Great strength is in Love … in sharing it, in growing it. Moving through pain and continuing to bring love to the world despite what it may throw at us … and first and foremost Loving the ‘love of our life’ … our self.

Don’t ever hurt yourself, in cherishing all that you are it will become easier to cherish all else that you see in the world, and to care for every aspect of it.

Truth Is Simple

I think you know … despite all that may have been said, or the tantrums experienced, Love, Joy, creating Peace, Sharing and Caring are where true strength is. Everything else, ALL else, is an attempt to thwart it.

We can look around us and see how the emotions of people are being manipulated by circumstances they have no control over. The body and mind, being mostly water, are affected in an intense way by all the currents of electromagnetic waves being sent here and there, moving through the human body and mind.

The body is one big antenna. It picks up on signals we cannot audibly hear, and reacts. Unless we are aware of the subtle energies and how they move through us and their affect on the emotional charge we hold in our mind, we will be subject to them. When aware of these things, we can recognize them when they occur and head them off at the pass, so to speak.

When we begin to realize and recognize these manipulations we can better look around us and see them in the reactions we experience in others when they interact with us. These invisible signals are combined with dogma, which instills a fear in people (if you don’t believe this, or if you dress like that, etc. etc. you’ll be punished eternally sort of stuff).

When fear is sufficiently implanted in the minds of people, then this fear can be manipulated using these invisible signals … see? Breaking free from fear is difficult, shedding the rules and regulations mankind has imposed on the spirits of their fellow brothers and sisters is hard.

Joy and Peace are the desire of ‘most’ people. Some have gone too far into darkness, and we can only hope they’ll find their way out of it. The main focus ought to be on breaking free from the chains of imposed fear, and then creating that which we wish to see in this world … Joy, Peace, Sharing, Caring.

Suspicion and Fear, Anger and Jealousy ~ These thing inhibit proper formation of Love and Compassion. There are those on the ‘job’, their duty is to unbalance Love and instill Fear. The few who do these things desire to see a shrinking of Love given in the world … and through fear and paranoia they have been succeeding.

But we see this now, don’t we? To hole up and not give of ourselves is to essentially cut off from every possibility of creating good. If we are not open to the possibility of pain, then we are also closed off from the possibility of Love … this reality we all wish more of. We CAN have it, but it requires courage, and willingness to bear the attack of the those who wish to kill love.

We are warriors of Love, and although it may appear we are losing the battle, it is quite the contrary. In fact, I like to think the dark deeds of those destroyers are back-firing on them, for they have opened the eyes of many to the stark contrast between shadow and light, making it more apparent what has been going on.

Choice ~ It is where your power resides. You have everything within you needed to win this battle.  This fight isn’t with swords or guns or fists … it is of spirit. Although this is what the bible tells us, that story is filled with half truths, just enough truth to confuse. Rather than rely on the book alone, trust in your personal connection to Spirit, to the Divine which desires to have union with each and every Soul … with You.

Trust the inner messages coming your way, do not doubt. Other people have no authority over this relationship each individual holds with Creator. Every person has a unique and personal connection to that Spark which wants the very best for humanity, for ALL life. If the inner intuitive messages are of Love and Kindness, trust them … if they are dark and desire you to harm anything, anyone, or yourself, they are of the parasitic invader, who is longing for destruction.

This is a serious matter, and there are those who have cultivated your passivity by asking you to give up your authority, handing it to someone else who will save you, and while ‘some’ of what they say may be true, the One who longs to save you also needs His warriors … and that is You … and Me … WE.
