Two Truths

Published October 15, 2017 by tindertender

Strength: What is it? Is it purely the physical strength, or is it endurance? Is it a combination of endurance, while still finding forgiveness and compassion in the heart, not succumbing to anger and resentment and victimhoood? Is it patience in combination with all of the aforementioned things? I am certain many will have their own thoughts on strength, and the truth for them will indeed be true, and it may even morph into something completely different in 5 years time.

Smart: What is that? Is it book smart, or common sense? I suppose you could say the scientists who study disease and CERN’s capabilities are highly intelligent, but are they smart? Do they recognize that they have potential to open doors (indeed probably already have) that would best remain closed? Does the drive to understand the workings of a particular thing over-ride the need to protect life which relies upon it’s dormant state?

Two TruthsPerhaps intelligence only comes to those who do not see themselves as brilliant. Perhaps the brilliance of some outshines their capacity for true understanding of the bigger picture. If not, and the bigger picture is perceived, and destructive scenarios proceed anyway, then sciences love for life has most likely left the building … or the planet. Perhaps those who sever heads off rats only to splice it into the spine of another, are aliens, practicing openly the tests previously known as abductions and mysterious murders.

There is a sinister, dark and twisted reality many will not fathom. It is awful, and to some, incomprehensible. To others, it is easier to ignore obvious clues and build a sweet little dream into which the daily routine spins.

Whatever way it is looked at, it revolves, and evolves. As the unseen and unknown are brought into the light, it will be made apparent. Even skeptics will say they see, and of course, there will still be those who will refuse.

There are 2 things I know to be truth at this time.
1) I do not know what it means to be strong.
2) I am uncertain what it means to be smart.

Power Of Discernment

When it is suggested that you stop being concerned for others, that you instead shut down and stop letting your heart strings sing, beware. Beware, and be aware … does it make sense that you allow yourself to grow cold? Does it make sense that you develop the attitude that some are deserving, while others are not?

Although it is true, there are many who are not ready or willing to see quite the same as yourself when it comes to certain topics, it does not make them wrong, or any less lovable than another. It is also true that while in the midst of a deafening and stifling darkness, some do others harm.  This blackness that has hold of them is manipulating circumstances in the hopes that it will harden even the softest hearts. Do not let it.

The High Road

When you are told you cannot join the group, when you are consistently denied, take the high road. While the others are walking the lower road together, they essentially force you to walk the alternative route.

Remember …

We travel quickest when we travel alone. Do not waste time feeling dejected, rejected, or sorry. Be glad instead, for you have been offered opportunity to increase the length of the journey, and the speed and which you rise.

Travel with love in your heart, and as you look below and you see them on the other path, smile, and thank them as you move swiftly by, and up. Focus not on doing better than … but on the work that must be done, the work that only you can do.

The world depends on you ~ on your stamina, on your unbreakable will, on your strength of character, on the fact that you hold honor for all beings in your heart and soul.

Who Knows Best?

Published July 25, 2017 by tindertender

Not knowing, they assume … thinking they know better than the experiencer, they become judgmental and cruel, lacking awareness that their behavior, which is based on ‘lack of knowing’, causes them to spew negativity.

So it is in the world.

Only when there is an awareness of how an individuals own actions and words affect the whole, and a conscious choice is made to be more kind, will things shift.

Fortunately, many people are doing just this.

Good people, who are adored and respected, admired for their successes, have this habit of judging without full knowledge. Some call it ‘leadership skills’.

Stepping back and simply observing, however, one begins to see the constant barrage of negativity coming from mouths. Good intentions, mixed with lack of empathy, really do no one any good.  The ‘I know better than you’ mentality, I believe, is partially responsible for the state we now find ourselves in.

It takes a lot of courage, back bone, and a strong will to step away from this, and firmly plant the feet in our own awareness, moving forward as we know is best for us in any given moment, in a wide set of circumstances.

You know best … you know whether it is beneficial to your present ‘beingness’ and those who your life is touching. You know. You are much wiser than, perhaps, you have let yourself believe. Deep within you is an abundant flow of advice. No words are spoken there, yet the information comes through just the same.

Allow yourself the freedom to be YOU. In kindness love grows. In pain compassion is multiplied. An understanding is gained through your experiences which will benefit others.

Be gentle. The world needs gentleness. A healing must take place and it begins in your own mind. Nurture yourself with positive thought and affirmation. When you understand how wonderful you are, you will begin to see this sameness in those you see around you. Even when they are cruel … for truly, they do not know what they do.

“I don’t know why I am here”

Life’s purpose is to bring goodness to the earth, to show what it means to overcome distress, hate, and negativity.  At times it may seem those emotions swallow the peace that dwells in the heart.

Like a wave, we rise. Soon, the waves will become smaller, calmer ~ looking into years gone by it is possible to see that these waves have already lessened in severity ~ yet they continue to come, and go.

Time is an amazing thing. Anxiousness may well in the belly, however when considered deeply, it can be seen that this energy bubble which rises may be coming from elsewhere, being only a sensitivity to what is going on ‘out there’. Knowing that the emotions are only energy, breathing, they fade.

We are all highly sensitive … we are more connected than we have been taught to acknowledge.

The ocean of energy we swim in on a daily basis is opportunity to practice grounding, standing firm. These energetic impulses flow around, through, and past us. Sometimes it is easy to float along, coast on the current … and sometimes we dig in the heels and hold ground for a time.

The opportunity to build strength and endurance is what this life offers us. The difficult part is not growing bitter through the testing, to continue seeing the good, feeling the love, being compassionate and lifting each other, assisting each other to become more than we were before.

Kindness goes a long way, and we should be kind to ourselves also. Negative self talk will only reinforce what the bully once instilled in our mind. Break the habit of repeating those words and instead create a positive flow of affirmation.

Life is a gift, good things are coming, believe it.

Time & Space

Published June 6, 2017 by tindertender

Time and space is not a place you go to be taught, as much as it is a place you go to teach. Of what heaven looks like, on earth. Of what divinity feels like, in flesh. And of what it means to dream in spite of darkness, hope in spite of odds, and prevail in spite of fear.
