Hermetic Philosophy ~ A Brief Intro

Published December 30, 2018 by tindertender

The Substantial Reality: Substance is that which underlies all outward manifestations; the essence; the thing itself. Substantial is actually existing; being real. Reality is true; enduring; valid; fixed; permanent. Under all outward appearances there must always be a Substantial Reality. This is the Law.

Nothing is permanent but Change. Everything is in a constant state of ‘becoming’, or ‘changing’. Nothing endures but change. All of these changing things are outward appearances or manifestations of the underlying power, some Substantial Reality.

Many names have been given this Substantial Reality. Some have called it by the term Diety (many names). Others have called it The Infinite and Eternal Energy, or Matter. The Hermetic name is THE ALL, who’s inner nature is unknowable. THE ALL is Infinite in Time, Eternal.

Something can never become nothing. Everything is THE ALL, yet what is finite and changeable cannot be THE ALL. Per science: Matter is merely interrupted energy, or force … Low vibration, nothing can rise higher than its source.

THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind – as compared to finite life and mind (humans). THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind, the Illumined call it Spirit. What is Spirit? It means “the real essence”. It transcends our understanding.

THE ALL creates the Universe and everything in it mentally, as men do with their own thought forms. There is no subtraction from, or adding to THE ALL. The Universe and all it contains is a mental creation of THE ALL, All = Mind. The Infinite mind of THE ALL is the Womb of the Universe.

Gender does not mean ‘sex’. Sex is merely a material manifestation of gender. Gender means relating to generation, or creation. The idea of a male and female god or creator is a distortion of the ancient teachings. THE ALL is above gender, as it is above every other Law, including those of Time and Space. It is the Law from which Laws proceed, and it is not subject to them. THE ALL is one – the two aspects are merely manifestations in THE ALLs Infinite Mind … the Universe is generated, created and exists.

There are beings with powers and attributes higher than man has ever dreamed of the gods possessing. They were once lower than man, and man will one day be higher than them. This is the Destiny of Man as reported by the Illumined. At the end of the Grand Cycle of Aeons, when THE ALL shall draw back into itself all of its creation, people will go gladly, and they will be able to,know the whole truth of being at one with THE ALL.

Within the Father/Mother mind of THE ALL, mortal children are at home. There is not one who is fatherless, nor motherless in the Universe.

Chance is but a name for Law not recognized. Nothing escapes the Law.

Mind may be transmuted from state to state, degree to degree, condition to condition, pole to pole, vibration to vibration. Transmutation (wisdom) not presumptuous denial (presumption = half truth), is the weapon of the Master. Remember ever the two poles of truth – the Absolute and the Relative. Beware of half truths.

Anything that has a beginning and an end must be, in a sense, unreal and untrue, and the Universe comes under this rule in all schools of thought. It is unsubstantial, non-enduring, a thing of time, space and change.

Truth as Absolute (things as the mind of God knows) and Relative ( things as the highest reason of man understands them).

Transmutation uses Laws against Laws, the higher against the lower, and by the Art of Alchemy transmutes that which is undesirable into that which is worthy, and thus triumph!

Mastery consists not in abnormal dreams, visions and fantastic imagining or living, but in using the higher forces against the lower – escaping the pains of the lower planes by vibrating on the higher. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the Master.

While All is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in All.

If I imagine a man paining on canvas, and there is a nude model posing on a sofa, do these visions have a concept of reality separate from my imagining, or of life as pertains to my mental image? Do they see themselves as alive experiencing reality? Do they have a personal Spirit independent of my thought? The Law of Paradox explains that it is true, viewed from the proper viewpoints.

The Spirit of my Creator is inherent within me, and yet I am not He. The half-truth = I am god. Imagine the characters of a book claiming to be the author. THE ALL is in the earthworm, and yet the earthworm is far from being THE ALL.

The beginning of the creative cycle, THE ALL in its aspect of being, projects its Will toward its aspect of becoming and the process of creation begins. It is taught that the process consists of the lowering of Vibration while a very low degree of vibratory energy is reached, at which point the grossest possible form of Matter is manifested. This process is called The Stage of Involution in which THE ALL becomes involved or wrapped-up in its creation.

This process is believed by Hermetists to have a correspondence to the mental process of an artist, writer, or inventor who becomes so wrapped-up (or rapt with) in his mental creation as to almost forget his own existence and who, for the time being, almost lives in his creation.

Attention is really a mental reaching out or extension of mental energy. Should you wish to know more …

The Trident, Trinity, Three Pure Ones

Published December 30, 2018 by tindertender

I woke this morning to a discussion about the Trident. There are many stories of the Trident, who uses it, and what for, but the Taoist description is the one which rings true for this mornings message. “In religious Taoism, the trident represents the Taoist Trinity, the Three Pure Ones. In Taoist rituals, a trident bell is used to invite the presence of deities and summon spirits, as the trident signifies the highest authority of Heaven.”

Prosperity is possible, however, ethics are necessary for real success. I see around me people struggling, often reverting to methods of gain which are not ethical, or even moral. I hear, as they speak of the woe that befalls them continuously, and I marvel at their inability to connect ethical behavior with potential abundance. Curious how suffering brings about action which is harmful. Could it be, that which is inflicting lack upon the population is manipulating minds to produce the ‘behavior’ which continues cycles of harm?

Forgive yourself, forgive others. Compassion for another’s situation is important at this time. Consider another persons point of view and choose connection rather than separateness. Especially in this current time, it is so easy to avoid the attempt of wearing another’s ‘shoes’, or putting of self, in another’s position. What would we do if we found ourselves there? Displaying martyr-like energy is not going to do any good. No one has to put themselves last in order to be compassionate toward others. There is a balance which can be nurtured and met.

I find that when I listen to the squabbles of the government representatives, joined by those who have chosen sides in the citizenry, my own mind and words and actions begin to mimic their child-like, tantrum throwing behaviors. I must shut them out if I am to remain in balance. The more times I experience this in myself, the more I see lack of awareness in the world around me, as people are torn apart and pushed and pulled by the manipulative ‘stories’ behind the actions we see taken. There must be a disconnect from the chaos pumped into homes and minds by those wishing to manipulate circumstances.

You are loved and protected even through the most difficult of trials. This is a time for healing. You need mothering, or to use your mothering energy. Sometimes, no matter how much we may try to protect someone, things do not turn out as we wish. While we may mean well, and even be right, people need to learn life’s lessons on their own. It may be a karmic situation that is resolving itself or a key life skill that someone is learning while we watch. It is natural to want to end the suffering of others. It is natural to try and protect ourself from the same suffering we see happening to others.

Current technology allows us to be connected near and far, in real time, viewing the horrors that befall humanity and all other life. It is natural for our nervous system to jolt and recoil and for the mental faculties to scream out for the need of change. The inner-most self of the majority yearns with great passion for the end of suffering. The inner-most self also fears that this suffering may come too close to home, which slams the door on compassion.

The key is in first, recognizing when this happens, and then learning to open the door to compassion, even though there is fear.

If we tune out the squabbles of adult children in high places, we may see that by coming together in body and mind we will be able to create a situation where all have enough.

This, however, requires that the participants be willing to work as a team, rather than have the mindset of taking that which they perceive to be abundance, or overflow of wealth, from another.

Those who’s only goal is the absorption of another’s profits from hard work, have no place in the building of a new world where people honor, respect, care for, and work with one another for the benefit of the whole.

Gifting and receiving is the way of the future. The give and take are on their way out. The first is gentle sharing, the latter is forceful compliance. It is clear which idea and mind frame the entire world has been operating from. It is past-due time for change.

Historical Battle For Power

Published December 29, 2018 by tindertender

“If you want to change your personal reality, you’ve got to change your personality.” ~ Dr. Joe Dispenza

I was visited by a golden kitty last night. I’m curious about this as just recently I was also visited by ‘Beetle’ (link below). The Egyptian Bastet was known as goddess. For years now in astral travel I find myself visited by these cats. One time in particular I saw many of them in a room, they were roaming around, it was as though they were kept in a room which was walled off from the rest of the house, as though they were ‘sealed in’ where visitors eyes would not be able to see them.

I get the distinct feeling that the Egyptians had a catastrophe of which history books are not telling us. They (in vision) are working quite dutifully on becoming free once more. With this being said, and since these visions and visits have been happening for over a decade, it might be time to look a little further into what it is they might need from me.

“Many scholars believe that Joseph, son of Jacob/Israel rose to the second highest position of power in Egypt during the time of Hyksos (foreign) rule, and that the Israelites were enslaved as the ethnic Egyptians regained power and cast out the Hyksos, perhaps as a form of xenophobia. That timing would allow the Israelites and the Egyptians to have been close enough to each other for long enough to have become familiar enough with each other’ religions prior to that pharaoh’s rule. Indeed the Bible records many religious struggles the Israelites had after their Exodus from Egypt, trying not to blend their monotheistic religion with the polytheistic religions of neighboring religions of neighboring nations. It’s therefore possible that Amenhotep IV / Akhenaten also picked up some ideas, namely monotheism, from the Israelites (much later called the Jews) and their religion Judaism. However, here in the time period around their enslavement in Egypt, they’re called the people of Israel and for awhile after it they’re called Israelites for their forefather Jacob, who’s renamed Israel after an encounter with God.”

My understanding thus far is that the Jews rose to power in Egypt known as ‘foreign’ rulership before being kicked out and enslaved by the ethnic Egyptians. During rulership, they introduced the idea of one god. Things got a bit messed up after that (later) when they were freed and rose to power once more, creating the beast of religion which required constant blood sacrifice. Following close behind is another called Christianity which tortured and killed all of those who would not conform to their idea of one god and follow their ‘laws’.

This ‘take-over’ described in Egyptian history, compared to today’s situation of government in the United States makes me a little nervous, as we have many people in our Congress and Senate who hold dual citizenship with Israel. Are they planning (or have already succeeded) in an infiltration and take-over of our government?

This battle for ‘kingship’ or ‘rulership’ has been going on for a very long time … and for some reason our government continuously gives the Israelites millions, even billions of dollars every year, as though we owe them something. Are we paying them in order to have the appearance of self-sustaining rulership? Are we allowed to function as a so-called independent country because of these consistent monetary payments to this Hyksos (foreign) rulership?

The complete total of U.S. grants and loan guarantees to Israel for fiscal 1997 was $5,525,800,000. The $84.8 billion in grants, loans and commodities Israel has received from the U.S. since 1949 cost the U.S. an additional $49,936,880,000 in interest.

Even excluding all of the extra costs, America’s $84.8 billion in aid to Israel from fiscal years 1949 through 1998, and the interest the U.S. paid to borrow this money, has cost U.S. taxpayers $134.8 billion, not adjusted for inflation. Or, put it another way, the nearly $14,630 every one of 5.8 million Israelis received from the U.S. government by October 31, 1997 has cost American taxpayers $23,240 per Israeli.

How do you feel, knowing your hard earned money is being taken in the form of taxes and given to another countries citizens, as you scrape by to put decent foods on your table and struggle to keep the roof over your head?

Do you still wonder why the United States is so far in debt? Are you not at least curious where the missing $21 trillion dollars our government cannot account for has gone?

“It’s clear that someone knows that a large amount of taxpayer dollars is being spent without authorized permission.” ~ Professor Mark Skidmore

This leads me to wonder … how many other governments are paying the Israelites with money they have to take out a loan for, charging it, plus interest, to their people? Any at all?

Why does so much U.S. taxpayer money go to a small and not particularly useful client state that has a vibrant European-level economy and is already a regional military colossus? Why has the U.S. been willing to set aside its own security … in order to advance the interests of another state? [No] explanation can account for the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the U.S. provides.

… with perhaps the exception that we have people in Congress and the Senate who hold citizenship with Israel voting to give them so much of our hard earned money.

Can anyone say traitor?

An interesting bit of info here … “Between 1991 and 2000, Israel’s annual venture-capital outlays, nearly all private, rose nearly 60-fold, from $58 million to $3.3 billion.”

There are so many things we are not being told, half truths laced with lies.

Awareness Brings Answers

Published December 27, 2018 by tindertender

Have people become too afraid to be flexible, or not brave enough to show their true selves? This is the energy that creates obstacles, difficulties and drama. There is an abundance of negative energy coming from people pretending to be someone they are not.We see evidence of this truth everywhere we look.

To embrace our strengths, we do not need to hate our opposites, we need to rise above this way of thinking.

Do not be afraid to open up, we are about to pass through a gateway that will bring personal change. This rite of passage is close.

What’s the most loving choice?

Who is the Witness?

Published December 26, 2018 by tindertender

Someone speaks of a witness. I ask, “Who is the Witness?”

“Don’t worry about it”, he says.

There is a female who thinks there is a giant trap and asks, “Has anyone helped this person?”

A male calls me a slut. I ask him, “What do you consider yourself to be? You are an invader, a spy and a traitor … and I am your witness.”

As horrible as circumstances currently are in various places of the world, it is not difficult to be a witness. Observation is one of the easiest things to do, yet many are overwhelmed with outside influences to notice, taking everything personally, getting so entangled they cannot see clearly.

There is a consistent phrase being stated, “She’s stronger than I thought she was.” And I say, “I hope you are not in a position of power for obviously you do not know the art of leadership. You ought to look at every situation/person as though they are strong enough … simple, basic rules that you seem unaware of. But maybe you just got lazy.”

I ask, “What would you like, a chrysalis or a spiders silken thread casing? I do not see you being interested in transformation, so it might have to be the webbed casing.”

If it can be imagined, it will be. They’re all a bunch of ‘no names’, I wonder why? Secrecy, or perhaps they were never given names. One speaks up and says, “Gracie told me all about you.” Aaaahhh, finally, a name spoken, and no, I do not know a Gracie (except for my brothers new puppy).

This is a predominately male group who believes me to be dangerous. One of them is looking forward to the end of the sounds of constant crying.

When I was younger, at a tender age, alcohol was introduced to me. It is incredible how something that tastes so nasty can actually become a habit. I experienced over time a hidden manipulation which produced constant betrayal, despair and anger. These substances make the unseens job much easier, for it breaks down our will and our desire to fight that which intends to cause ruination of life.

There was a time daily living and events were puppeted without me having a conscious understanding. When I broke through the veil (which nearly killed me) I began to see what was actually going on. I could hear them working their plans, they hooked my mind in the attempt to control my actions.

Fortunately, there has been one who has loved me from beyond since the beginning. He sent to me those who assisted in the dissolving of the ‘hooks’ and stood by me as I built strength to overcome the invasive presence. Yes, they are still here, working diligently for the end they desire. And yes, I am their witness.

The odd thing is that although I’ve always been empathic, my senses are more so these days. People do not have to say a word, their energies tell the story far better than mere words could ever portray.

I’ve been in the practice of discerning energies, what is mine, what is being broadcast into my space. I have not been in the practice of searching others energies … only when they are placed in my space. I knew in the past how this felt, although I did not understand what it was … fully. I still do not understand it fully, but this journey I will continue to share with those who wish to read of it.

There will come a time when these skills will be needed, fine tuning is a must. The work is difficult, for transforming negativity is not an easy task, although with practice, it has gotten much easier.

As the energies of the planet shift, so shall the energies of the human, and they will become more conscious and aware of them. They will begin to see what the affects of their past actions and behaviors have had, and are having, on the world in which they live. At this point, there will be a clear choice to continue doing that which causes chaos and harm, or alter actions and words to build a brighter future.

This in no way means to allow others to stampede or break barriers. It means to stand ground for what is righteous and good … there are rules which must be respected, these rules will be enforced. My hope is that those who are hurting will realize that suffering people create suffering, hurt people hurt other people. When they understand this, they will be better able to view their actions and break the cycle, becoming part of the solution rather than adding to the problems we’ve been facing.

It is my belief we are in the end times. The battle is intensifying and while we would rather not be disrupted in our life, we will be … like it or not. It is better to be aware, to firm ourselves up, and prepare for this battle.

Intrusive Energetic Tendrils

Published December 25, 2018 by tindertender

It is amazing how I can be sitting here minding my own business and then get an icky energy feeling in the pit of my stomach. It is not due to food or drink, it is an energy chord … someone’s sending me crappy signals.

This happens often, not only to me, but to all people, many who do not understand the difference between what is ‘theirs’, and what belongs to another.

I have found that recognition of the occurrence, acknowledgement of it, and some deep breathing works wonders in releasing the hold, perhaps even transmuting the energy. If you know Reiki, it can also be utilized in the process. Pendulum healing is also a tool which can be a great addition to the techniques practiced. The quicker the recognition and acknowledgement, the easier the release and transmutation. Knowing how your personal energy feels assists in discerning other, invasive energies.

It is my understanding that the Soul of a person actually rests in this core area, near the belly button, about an inch below and about 3 to 4 inches above. When the guard goes down, when one is relaxed, it is easier for an entity of sorts (physical or non) to attach and siphon this life energy from the body, disrupting the emotional balance and the mind also. Another common attachment ‘favorite’ is the heart chakra.

This is why drugs and alcohol are a very bad thing. It numbs the ability to recognize when this connect and drain happens, it also makes it easier for the mental faculties to be manipulated from an outside source.

If the television is watched frequently, or the computer used for hours at a time, or many other distractions (list so long I’ll leave it to your imagination), it makes it difficult to notice when these  injections or attachments occur. A focused mind is critical in maintaining control over what is allowed in the energetic field.

Practice is so important. If you are in a room having coffee, or working, or whatever, and someone enters … and you notice you begin to feel tension, or become irritable, ask yourself … “Why am I feeling this way? What is this reaction, or response pertaining to? Does this feeling, this emotion belong to me, or is it being transmitted to me by another?”

Be aware of your full body … etheric, auric, energetic, emotional, mental … learn what each part is (there are many resources on-line) and then study how it looks and feels in your own person.

This observation is important for health, and for sanity. Each individual must do the work themselves, for themselves. No one else can determine how it may appear in the individual body … yes, there are basic formats which happen in all people, but just as each individual will hear a conversation differently, so will they feel energy differently. This is a gift only you can give yourself … and you deserve it.

If you are unable to remove yourself from a situation that is causing energetic disturbances, practice your focused breathing and energy work.

There are stones which help in the absorption and transmutation of negative energies which attempt attachment. Tourmaline, Shungite, Jet and Obsidian. Citrine is a great ‘cleansing’ stone and never needs cleansing itself. Use it to clear the other stones you may choose to use. I have included several links below to get you started on your investigative journey of crystals and stones.

Beetle Vision

Published December 25, 2018 by tindertender

A beetle showed itself to me recently in vision. It looked like a cross between the Golden Jewel Beetle and the Dogbane Leaf Beetle. The right wing was golden in color, very bright, whereas the rest of it looked like the Dogbane Leaf Beetle, with the exception of the antennae, which were shorter, like the golden jewel.

Looking for meaning I find:

“This is a time of high calling from Spirit to use unlimited imagination, tapping into the creative intelligence of the universal elements … using the power of ‘the force’, your inner energy wheels, your chakras will create momentum and drive, propelling you to break free into new dimensions of being into new ways of connecting and expressing the eternal force that lives within you … as with each step you experience the state of becoming ever eternal, in mind ~ body ~ spirit.”

Across the Universe … they are calling …
