Be In The Moment

Published March 10, 2018 by tindertender

Getting caught up in what the future may hold is a deadly trap, for it robs a person of the here and now. Some day comes when they are on their death bed and they wonder where the time went, and they discover that while they were preparing for the future, they forgot to truly live. So play … be mindful of every moment before it slips on by.


A Collective Awareness

Russia, U.S. Discuss Aleppo as Airstrikes Continue.

Tell me, why is this even needing discussion? The murder of people must end.

People everywhere are being displaced from their homes, their sanctuaries, in the name of greed and perceived power.

No one, anywhere, has the right to tell another person they must conform to a particular way of thinking, to a set of rules and methods. As long as the beliefs and traditions of a people do not harm anyone, physically, mentally, they should be allowed to honor God in their way.

Love of Mother, in all forms, takes the lead for a wondrous and compassionate heart.

Yes, mama, he is a man … a man who honors you with his tears.

After work, Friday errands and alterations

Getting a hair cut and color is one way to distract myself. I’ll  just have to see how she does.

Oh boy! Now that is a hair cut! I’m coloring it now. When done I’ll add pictures. I figure it’s time to step out of the box.   Hahahaha.

Hahaha. This is the new 50 folks!  What fun!
That was yesterday. Today I bought a couple of raised planter boxes and planted broccoli, spinach, carrots, radishes and beets. I hope something grows. I’m an amatuer so I will learn as I go. The plan is to grow my own food and can it.

These are 2×2. Next I would like to purchase a 2×4. There is some space here with sun. Something should sprout.

What a chore to clean this place. But it’s becoming so beautiful. My wonderful friend Sonia is making a very early morning drive from Salem next Saturday. I’ve really missed that lady. It will be nice to share my new home for a day with her.

I’ve just received word my new car will be ready Monday. This Monday. Hooray! I’m excited.

Well I’ve played, I’ve worked and tonight is the singing  bowl meditation. What an nice  day.

Advice for the day

Published July 1, 2016 by tindertender

Advice I’ve been given for today:
You might be making mountains out of molehills. Realize that there is a path for everybody. Put your aggression away today. It’s powerful, but it won’t do any good. Keep your power under wraps. Concentrate on the mundane tasks that need to be done.

Awake at 4am. I went to bed early last night. It seems easier to do this than stay awake and deal with the emotional garbage flowing through me. I realize this is not the way to properly dissipate the blockage, however that’s what I did. Tonight I’ll try something different, and tomorrow. Tomorrow is the 1st already … the future will be determined by events that take place. As always … I’m ready to go crazy with paint. I have big readers and a different paint.

I’m simply going to play with color and create. No thought in mind, just whatever is in me will be poured out on the canvas.

It’s 12:25 pm. 2-1/2 hours until I can get it going, get it over and get home. Moves on with my life. The poor dogs will need to pee, bad!


Wisdom of the Hidden Realms

Published March 26, 2016 by tindertender

I am pulling a card tonight from the deck called Wisdom of the Hidden Realms. My question is a general one. I like to keep it that way because the world is in such a chaotic state, I want as much meaning for as many people as possible. So I ask:

What can we do in the future to improve our situation? Of course Spirit knows of the chaotic disorder, and so I will tell you the card pulled is:

The Sun Dancers, it is in the challenge position:


There is warning of losing yourselves in your dreams of the future when the Sun Dancers come to challenge you. Their message is sweet and simple: stop what you are doing and go have some fun. Celebrate what is and don’t worry about what will be or what could be. Be here now … just be, just for today.

You will find your answers, but only after you’ve made time to play. Tomorrow, after all, is another day, and the sun will rise again to shed its warmth and light on all that needs clarity. You can count on it.

Let there be wisdom,
Let there be Light.
Let me be challenged
To open my sight.
Let no harm ever be done,
And remember that all life is One.
With truth and with heart, may
the highest be done,
That all of the realms may heal in the sun.
Show me only my highest good, and for the
highest good to be done.

Blessed be. Amen.

I was going to hit you with another of my silly videos, but this message is so good, I think it wise if we focus on it alone for now.
