The Love Of My Life

Published January 31, 2018 by tindertender


The love of my life is … Mother. I’m guessing it is the same for quite a number of people, which is why I am so amazed at the harsh treatment of women all over the world. I suppose it is a blaming of her for the many hurts her children experience through their young lives.

Mom cannot protect us from everything, and it isn’t something she should be blamed for. It isn’t humanly possible! All the while she cares for her children, she experiences harsh reality herself, abuses the child may never know of, even after becoming an adult.

I suppose she is the easiest target for painful experiences … first dealing with her own, and then suffering for the experiences the child may think she’s responsible for. One would think being a mother is a thankless job … yet women continue to become just that.

It would be great if people could look within their hearts and minds to discover the (probably) buried causes of their inner pain, and work though them … forgiving where needed, letting go ~ a BIG release, for it is a weight that hinders well being, not only for self, but for all others the injured spirit touches.

I know … for I was one who did exactly what I speak of, and now understand … It takes time and effort ~ living a life of peace is hard work.

A wise man once said, “It takes a strong man to go into battle, it takes an even stronger man to walk away from one”.

It is true … for in walking away, or in forgiving perceived wrongs, others may ridicule and cast their own judgments about what they think you should do. Remember, it is your own opinion about what you decide that is important. Anger, or vengeful thinking, is not a burden worth carrying, for the room created by letting it go provides space for much goodness.

Plastic’s Affect On Ocean Life

Published November 23, 2017 by tindertender

WHY are we still using plastic?!?!?!

I have purchased Bamboo toothbrushes and will continue to buy bamboo toilet paper to lessen my impact on the forests. I bought a water distiller and a stainless steel water bottle and stopped buying bottled water some time ago.

Bamboo products

Plastic MUST go! Life of everything rides on the immediate decisions we make, all of us who do not make changes in our habits are responsible for this destruction. Life will cease if we refuse to care, and act accordingly.

Mother Earth, Sacred Ground

Whatever your beliefs, open your heart and mind to Mother Earth … she is calling for us to assist her right now … Hear it.

The Earth is our Mother, we must take care of her
The Earth in our Mother, we must take care of her
Hey Yanna Ho Yanna Hey Yon Yon
Hey Yanna Ho Yanna Hey Yon Yon
Her sacred ground we walk upon, with every step we take
Her sacred ground we walk upon, with every step we take
The Earth is our Mother, she will take care of us
The Earth is our Mother, she will take care of us

The Lioness Stood There

Published August 29, 2017 by tindertender

The lioness stood there, looking at me, then she slowly morphed into a fox.

Lion spirit animal, symbol of personal strength and courage.
Red Fox showing up means it’s time to tackle life with passion!

Yes, it is time. It is hard to fathom that so much time has passed in which clarity has been so elusive. The path traveled may have been suppressed, mind foggy, understanding of what was, dim.

I suppose sometimes the mind needs a big SHOCK to waken it, not a literal electric shock, ~ but an experience so grand that it literally blows the mind.

We see many of these events taking place today, some personal and smaller in scale, and some very large and grand, affecting whole cities, like Houston with Hurricane Harvey, just now.

Many, yes, many who are not currently aware of it, have this strength and courage within, represented by the Lion. They will also tackle life with a fervor perhaps not had before, as they rebuild their lives.

Catastrophes such as these show us everything that is not quite right in the world. When we see them so blatantly, we are determined to do something which will make it better, easier for when next, something like this happens. A big light is shown on those who have stated they care, and whos actions show otherwise.

If you were hoping for clarity, it is here, if you were not even thinking of it, it is here. An awareness will come over all, despite best efforts to remain in the dark. As this shocking awareness hits us, it is important to know, we are loved, even if we do not sense it, or experience it just yet.
