Nonsense Making Sense

Published December 14, 2017 by tindertender

Just Ask

It doesn’t have to make sense, any of it. Those who are doing the best they are able, with care not to harm others, is bathing in honor. This invisible bath often goes unrecognized by the bather, and unmentioned by those who notice it.

Often times when good deeds are seen, they are not commented on, for when too much attention is given to them, those who do little, look bad. (Now) and when I was younger I would come into a job and work so hard. I was fast and accurate, giving 110% and put all of my focus and ability to whatever task was at hand, always pushing myself. A co-worker once drew me aside and told me to slow down, that I was making the group look bad. I thought silently that this was just the way it would be, for I did not have it in me to be less, so that others, resting in this mode, would look better. I still don’t.

There are many people who are comfortable in a state of mediocrity. They want to put forth minimal effort while reaping the reward for success. The issue with this, is that while less is being done, more people need to be hired, hence, there goes opportunity for wage increases and promotion. Hard work is beneficial to all who are willing to team up and get it done.

All pieces of the puzzle, whichever format it may take, are crucial to the end result, none being more important than the other. So while it may sometimes make no sense at all, stepping back and looking at the larger picture, the beauty of it is apparent at all times.

A Deeper Connection

Published November 21, 2017 by tindertender

When a mistake is made and someone deems an error is punishable, many besides the one who determines this, jump on the wagon and assist in meting out the judgement. It can feel as though the whole world is against us sometimes, the negativity gets so thick. Often, this is the reaction to a minor slip up, or not a mistake at all, but a decision by one for personal reasons, carried out by the crowd.

Vultures in this world prey on those who’s glass is half empty.

This is one reason why positive self talk and compassion are so important. These things people say and do run around in the mind. When looking in the mirror a reflection of what they’ve placed there is seen … but these judgments do not belong here, there is no need to claim them. IF there is truth seen in any of it and change is desired, DO it … the mind is capable of miracles, and a will that can carry them out is in each of us. Look within, it is seen.

Can there be a person who would lift the world from chaos into peace? There is … and that person is you, it is me, it is we … the choice must be made, and effort applied, it begins in the heart.

There are many who will say war will always be, for people will never agree. If we teach ourselves how to disagree without the need for fighting, war will end. It isn’t necessary to have a fist fight, or worse, every time someone has a differing opinion, to think there must be a battle because of this, is just plain silly and childish.

laser battleWhat if … what if war in heaven describes a war between those who have the knowledge of flight? Standing on the ground, looking up, there is a vision … Light bursts from flying machines directed at others, back and forth they fire these attacks, the sky glows with these laser explosions. Soon it becomes dark, yet these blasts are still seen, fire breaks out on land, people scramble to put them out, to save their beloved animals.

When these things enter the brain, there is a dulling of thought, a disconnect from society, even from self! If you have ever taken a pharmaceutical which has this affect, which you can physically sense occurring, then you know how it is. What has happened to the foods and waters has happened slowly over time, we haven’t noticed the gradual increase in chemicals.

Once the body and mind begin detoxification a change happens, a deeper care for the world and all life upon it become very strong. This is happening now … there are many who have made this choice, who are ‘awakening’.

War is a tiring thing, people do not want it any longer.

Yet it is still being forced upon the world by those who have the technology of flight and other war making equipment. Are these the gods who make war in heaven?Are you the god who fights against the killing machines?

Recognizing and embracing the life force that flows within is critical, awareness of this will bring one closer to authority, and an understanding that there is no one in this world who has more of it than each personal individual.

How will this power be applied?

Who Gives A Crap?

who gives a crap

“How well do you know her?”, she asks. They are in deep conversation … “She talks about controversial topics, should people listen and care enough, they will make change. They will ask her about waste and she will tell them.” As I listen to this conversation I write it down to ponder the following morning, which is right now.

While here on this planet, it is sacred duty to care for the world. This world grows trees and plants which supply our very next breath. The waters run from deep within the earth and hydrate a body with necessary minerals, and soil also grows nourishing, organic foods which maintain body and mind health.

We see, when we pay attention, what has become of the water supply, the earth bleeds goo as corporations who want to be ‘filthy’ rich suck the life blood from deep with in the planet, this is permitted by others who feel the same as they. The forests which clean the air are hacked down and not replenished, the air overhead is sprayed with chemicals we can only guess of. There are some who have stepped forward to warn us, but they are discredited by the wealthy who own the media, who play the game of destruction.

Who Gives A Crap products are a step in the right direction should we desire to assist in the slowing down of this ruination. My hope is that you, too, care enough to evaluate your life and make changes where you can. These changes need not be dramatic, they can be as small as recycling, buying used and refurbished items, turning off the lights when not in use, growing your own food, distilling your own water and using stainless steal drinking containers rather than purchasing plastic bottles of stolen waters. Small changes such as observing your speech throughout the day and then deciding if these are the seeds you truly wish to plant in this world for future generations.

What examples will you embody and then give to the world?

Language ~ Show And Tell

Published November 19, 2017 by tindertender

love-languages-chart

The language we use when speaking is a description of our inner person. It tells of the anger, the hatred, the pain, the joy, the gratefulness, and the rebelliousness which resides in our mind. It is show and tell.

There are many who say, “Don’t tell them that! They’ll think this or that!” If I am in harmony with what I believe to be goodness, then I have no qualms of telling of my experiences. I try, every day, to be kind … to myself first, so much so, that this kindness will spill into the world. I do not wish to hide in the shadows and harbor ill will, I want no part of that.

Standing in vulnerability is important. Allowing others opportunity to be judge, also allows them to perhaps open eyes and actually see this in themselves, and then change it. It is a difficult and painful position, this is why so many shrink from the task.

foullanguageSome folks believe that using foul language means freedom, they release into the world, whatever they choose, and they call it good. They say they speak without anger or blame and therefore it is acceptable.

When children are raised they are taught not to talk trash ~ imagine a world where they have permission to spew foul words wherever they went, and to whomever they chose, then imagine them becoming adults, with children of their own, allowing the same. What do you envision? While the pains of life are still there, and anger is still prevalent, only now it is acceptable to talk such language … what do you see? Often the language of a kind is followed by actions of a kind.

If you have to ‘watch your language’ in the presence of children, it is a sign that inwardly you do not think speaking certain words is okay.

Words form reality.
What are you creating?

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Real ~ Like A Ton O’ Bricks

When did the format of our questions change?

why-is-the-sky-blue

As children we would ask, “Why is the sky blue?”, among many other ‘curiosity’ questions. As adults, it is more along the lines of, “Why would they do that?”, or, “Why would God allow this to happen?”

We enter this life full of happiness and interest, eager to discover the wonderment’s it will offer. Soon though, our excitement shrinks as we experience harm, hurt, and betrayal of all kinds. This comes from parents, ‘friends’ and governing bodies. The system proves itself to be broken, and it fosters a broken reality, indeed, it creates what it has become.

Joy and embrace are replaced by bruises and disgrace.

How can the beauty of a child alter the fate of the world, instead of a corrupt and broken world altering the fate of the child? This current structure must ‘flip’, the balance is no longer there and the whole of the world is off kilter.

How can health be part of an organization which is ill in itself? It cannot. This structure is full of people intent on fixing everyone else, while ignoring their own bullshit.

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

     ~ Matthew 7:1-5 KIV

Hypocrites, everywhere.

In order for this change to occur, people must demand the reintroduction of their inner child. We carry around these pains from our youth, we’ve buried them and think ourselves strong for overcoming trials.

The truth though, is unless we embrace that vulnerable child within us and allow it to have a voice, giving it permission and freedom to finally be heard, using our adult common sense and compassion, change will be very slow in coming, if not impossible.

Our obligation to ourselves, if we honestly choose to be free, is to accept liability for the stuff we’ve crammed into the depths of our soul under lock and key, and to also be its liberator, all the while embracing that fragile, and now knowing, inner child.

Many of the people in this world are choosing to foster care, compassion, forgiveness, patience, and acceptance of self, which in turn make it easier to see the need for, and have the desire to grow it, elsewhere on the earth.

It is time to water our garden folks. There is no better nourishment to be provided but for the gift we have capacity of giving ourselves … and each other.

26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a member of it.

Her Testimony

Published November 10, 2017 by tindertender

“I wonder what it would be like if people
just loved each other.”

This is the thought she had for days prior to being relieved of the burden of anger. For years she carried a heavy load, weighing her down. She was fed up with the seemingly unjust life she was born into. She was indeed angry, she was hurting through and through. This pain she carried leaked into the world, it got on everything, but the day the load lifted she felt lighter, she actually felt the burden leave her shoulders, she grew taller.

She found that forgiveness came easier, but damage was done. Those who felt her pain over the years cannot seem to shake the old her, and embrace the new. They do not see she no longer carries the burden of anger, and that she no longer lashes out attempting to assuage her suffering by dumping it on them, or others. They do not see her concerted efforts to do what nice people do.

One-of-the-happiest-moments

She continues to work on the most important thing of all ~ forgiveness of herself. She looks very deep into her wounds, she removes the venom from them, and keeps them clean while they heal. Combating this poison is difficult for it has embedded itself into her. She is consistent in dressing the wounds, and they slowly heal.

It is sad that she need to love from a distance those who she caused suffering in the past. Because they cannot see the new her, they insist she hasn’t changed, the memory of the venom clear in their minds. It is important that the proper message be told in her life, and that is the knowledge of who she is becoming … not who she once was. She sheds the memory, she sheds the opinions of the past, she refuses to wear these labels any longer.

Embracing the new self she is creating, she improves on the efforts to become more than she was before. She longs to build a kinder, gentler world and she knows that it begins in her own heart and mind, in her own life. She knows she must be willing to be that which is needed, and it must start in her personal space, she must walk the walk.

She may stumble periodically, however each time she picks herself up, the footing of the new life becomes more sure, the relief becomes more firm in her mind and body, in her heart. Every day she begins again, finding ways that will help her to continue shedding this old persona.

She is a creator, a powerful force,
and it is seen in the way she changes her life.

You're in charge
