HYMN TO THE DIVINE MOTHER

Published May 15, 2018 by tindertender

DEVI PRAYER

English text by Julie (Julie Redstone)

The Divine Mother is everywhere.
She is in everything.
She is the Divine Essence that lives within all beings.
Her domain is the field of life, for she gives
to all beings the sustenance that is needed for life.

Her beauty lives in the natural world,
and spans the universes in all their splendor.
She has been called by many names,
for all traditions recognize Her.
Into each consciousness the knowledge is given
of the sacredness of life. 
This sacredness IS the Mother.
She is the holy generator of the physical world,
joined to the heart and soul of every living thing.
All of the Earth is one with Her.
All beings of the Earth owe their life to Her,
for she is the Mother of all, the One who bestows
all gifts of life.
Her gifts come to the deserving and to the
non-deserving alike, for the sun does not choose
upon whom to shine.
She is the source of Divine blessing, the part
of the Oneness that bestows the graces that fill life.
We have not seen Her because her being is
cloaked in silence.
She emerges now as part of the Oneness where
she has always resided, blessing all, giving to all.
All who bow before Her are sustained by the life
within them.
All who honor Her are sustained by life’s gifts
both within themselves and beyond.
The purpose of existence is to join with Life that lives
in all dimensions and all realms of being.
It is the Mother that creates this evolving,
this unfolding journey,
for she is the fabric of Time itself,
the means by which all things grow.
She is the template for life that exists within Her —
the substance and form of all that shall ever come to be.
May all be blessed by the blessings of the
Divine Oneness.

Prayer & Meditation

Published May 11, 2018 by tindertender

In contemplation it has become habitual for people to ask for personal favor. What is said of meditation also refers to prayer and the way things actually work.

Seeking to ‘release’ is the key to flow. Release kindness into the world, release peace into the world, release compassion into the world, release abundance into the world … in this way, movement begins, the current which is needed to course through mind and body in a positive manner. By opening this doorway in yourself it allows circulation through you, ~ body, mind, spirit.

By asking for personal favors and blessings, you seek to take in. This does not bode well for flow. However by releasing your own personal blessing into the world, there is now room for blessing to move through you.

It’s all energy. Hording it does no one any good.

Rock Stacking, Elemental Union

Published March 30, 2018 by tindertender

Meditation comes in many ways, rock stacking is one of them. The focus is so keen on the balancing of them, all else falls away. In time, even the effort to stack them may fade, as it just seems ‘to happen’.

FluoriteStones are some of the oldest known substances of the earth. Crystals of all kinds make up this fabulous world! Fluorite is a fantastic item to have in inventory, not just for its beauty, but for the properties it offers the possessor.

Fluorite is a highly protective and stabilizing stone, useful for grounding and harmonizing spiritual energy. When working with the upper Chakras, Fluorite increases intuitive abilities, links the human mind to universal consciousness, and develops connection to Spirit.

It absorbs and neutralizes negative energy and stress. An excellent learning aid, Fluorite increases our powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps us in decision-making. It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally.

I hold in my hands the one pictured above as I listen to the Tibetan singing bowls being played.

While life as a young person is spent detaching, finding who we believe we are, older years may be spent in developing an understanding that in union, with each other, and with all of the elements of the earth, are we fully and truly who we were meant to discover.

Simply Be In Flow

Published March 3, 2018 by tindertender

meditation

“The goal of meditation is to come back to ourselves and to our true nature. Our breath brings us to the doorway, and the pause between the breath opens the doorway. Once there, simply allowing ourselves to fall into this opening and being aware is all there is to it.”    https://us.organicindia.com/organic-india-blog/breathing-into-meditation-%E2%80%93-an-introduction?__prclt=mVkP0voB

I move my arms behind me and hold the fingers of my left hand with my right. I bend backward, stretching my front, and I feel a warm rush move from my abdomen down the front of my hips and upper thighs, I must bend forward for it feels as though my legs might collapse.  Once recovered, I repeat this movement until the warm rush of energies stop with such intensity and a simple stretch remains. I stay in this form and twist my upper body slightly to the left, stretching in a different manner, and then turn and stretch to the right for balance.

To start the energy flow there need not be any strenuous movement, one can remain seated if they choose  should there be back issues or balance trouble. Mantak Chia gives a great tutorial here:

These simple exercises done in the morning take only a few minutes, yet the benefit of it will magnify your  life, you will feel better and gain so much. You deserve this gift, and only you can give it to yourself.

Hello To Calm, Goodbye To Forever War

Published January 29, 2018 by tindertender

Love makes the body wilt and the mind soft. Those who live by war will never accept love, not fully, for they must be hard as nails and be at the ready to end life, forever on call.

Cure for humanity

Medical marijuana has been legalized at the state level in many of our United States. This is the preferred medicine of a lot of people, proving itself to be of most benefit for certain ailments. When people become relaxed and calm, they no longer want to fight, they just want to be happy …

This is a threat to the war making business, this is a threat to privatized prisons, this is a threat to law enforcement as they have fewer crimes to keep busy with. Revenue falters for the prisons, fewer people want war, humanity sees finally that government has a tight grip on what is allowed, reasons kept secret for the most part.

The Federal Judge wants to begin enforcing criminal charges against those in the states with legal marijuana for users. He wants to fill the prisons (which he has investments in), he wants to generate income by hurting those who just want to be calm, who use this plant to lessen anxiety, to treat depression, among many physical ailments which are benefited from its use.

The government needs more aggression so they can enforce their military actions on the public, so they can convince them that this is the solution to trouble.

Trouble is a bred thing, orchestrated by those in power so they can keep power.

Love is the natural state of humanity. With nature on the side of life, embraced by people who want to feel better and do not want to war with anyone, the edges are soothed and peace of a sort arises.

Many people reject chemicals created in the lab which poison bodies and minds nowadays. These concoctions poison the liver, the kidneys and other organs of the body. Of course there is another chemically created concoction to combat these symptoms and ailments. All of which, for the most part, could have been avoided … if government would just let nature do her job.

Hello to love, hello to peace, hello to a poison free world, hello to compassion, hello to shedding the incessant and persistent thumb of those who impose limitation.
