Like Everyone Else

Fashion, career, morning drink, meal times, tradition, religion … there really aren’t too many categories people live by and in. Sure, these things change from culture to culture, yet the basic category structure remains the same.

Most cultures have a few rules each citizen is expected to adhere to. If people deter from them, often they are beaten, killed, or ousted from the society. Fear of these things keeps them in check and obedient.

Was the world always this way? Did the every day civilian always bow to the tyranny of the ones making the ‘rules’? Was there ever a time when people worked together in harmony for the benefit of all?

History is written by the ‘so called’ winner. We are finding now that so much of the past has been wiped from the books, only told what they needed us to know in order to get the public to back them on whatever decisions they made, and continue to make.

It is sad that millions of people were (and are) lied to and intentionally kept in the dark about their true heritage, all so the few can reign supreme over them. Civil wars of the past? I get the feeling it was about much more than we’ve been taught.

 

What Can Be Said Of Time?

Every morning before I get a chance to talk myself out of it I climb onto the stationary bicycle. There is that moment when I begin to say to myself, “it can wait until tomorrow”, which is why I get on before I’m fully awake.

After the remaining exercises I sit and breath, quieting my mind, learning how to be still anew, every morning. With the work schedule it is easy to tell myself I haven’t time for deep silence or contemplation, yet this is exactly where the connection with the larger reality is made. By NOT allowing proper time, we only cheat our self of that which is most beneficial.

The mind gets distracted by things, time disappears as it gets caught in webs placed around us … advertising, television, commotion in the household, neighborhood crime, world events … to remain centered and come from that place is a challenge many do not take.

Strong energy is always inspiring and provoking. Anyone who wishes to follow an interest or continually grow toward something worthwhile has an enthusiastic energy.

Seeing imbalance in others seems simple, yet seeing it in ourselves is difficult. Finding balance is key.

Honoring our self is critical, and respecting the earth as sacred is just as important, for an unhealthy planet cannot support us as we need.

It is never too late to change. Regret is useless. Forgiveness may be necessary. Bravery is valuable. It’s beneficial to act with courage and to be empathetic, to grow knowledge of how our actions affect others and the planet.

Bridging The Gap

Bridging the gap

Cockeyed I sit in my chair, the spring and ball joint turning the seat slightly, I turn my keyboard to one side so it aligns with my position. There is work to be done and although I know the end goal, I do not focus there as I proceed. It will be just as it should, in due time.

They’ve fallen away, those who are uncomfortable with all of this. They rest in what they’ve known and this is perfect for them, for now. I continue on my way, moving forward with what I must do. This does not mean I love them less, far from it.

This journey is a dance, sometimes we have a partner, and other times we only have the wind. Spinning, the hairs of the head are lifted, just as the spirit is too. A lightness permeates the flesh and everything within it.

It is said that thought is near the same as actual doing. As I envision a time and a place and what goes on there, it is real … in my mind, and I rest knowing that this is exactly as it ought to be. Since I have this power, I create pleasant circumstances which bring peace to my life. I collect these vital memories, these creations, and I hold them near for there will be a time in which they will come in quite handy, even more so than in this present moment.

I’ve been there … I’ve dwelt in this place you think of. Now, I choose this place, for the time being. Don’t look at me that way, sly, out of the corner of your eye. It seems you have difficulty believing me. It is okay, trust has been stripped from the average mind, and even those who are quite beyond average.

Heightened senses unite that which was separated. Intensity is picking up. Terrifying to some, perhaps all. There are those who come out of it, and those who never do, at least while in body.

Here we are. I write and you read. Maybe not at the same time, yet our ‘attention’ has been placed here just the same. Sharing this space we are closer than ‘light years’ yet bridging this gap can seem quite impossible. It is getting easier though.

 

Embracing Time

Published March 1, 2018 by tindertender

Embracing TimeThey didn’t expect me to make it, they didn’t think I would survive. They came upon me thinking it would be easy … an easy out. Breathe he said, as I swam under water, and I almost did, so I stepped out of the river and chose not to swim any more. Other times came and went where they thought I would release them, but no, here I am still.

I have a life to lead, and although I was in error, I am not any longer ~ at least not the same type of error. I have begun to think that perhaps life isn’t about getting it right, or fouling up. I now think it is about learning to stand up and lead ones self, rather than being led by another.

While I wasted much time in the beginning, I’m determined to make the most of the end. With renewed hope and joy for living I embrace what is left, and I pull from the core of me that which I have always loved ~ self expression. This had been stifled for so long, held at bay by others judgments which became my own. I release them now.

There isn’t time to waste, so I embrace what is left of time.

Illusion, Or Delusion?

Imagination

Early morning rise, appointment made will be kept. Imaging, Imagination … are they one and the same? What is seen, is what has been created. Want a different result? Live differently, behave differently, be conscious about creation.

Time … always leaving one to believe they are late, or early. How much of it do we really get privilege of toying with? How much of it will be wasted?

Passive … we’ve been passive for a very long time … while our pockets are emptied and the contents used to line the pockets of others who make decisions which affect life, all of it … and yet, we still follow along. Only now is it being realized that those who claim to have been helping us, in no way do they care two bits about any of it, it’s all about power and greed.

Today, I do not have to work for the pay which will inevitably be taken from me. Today (and tomorrow) I relax, yet I know full well the money which will wind up in my bank account will also wind up in irresponsible hands, and war will be waged.

War … against drugs, against terrorism, against the people who wish to grow foods and protect the waters … we’ve seen them in action, we’ve heard their blatant lies, we’ve even fell for them more that twice. How many more times will we blindly follow and believe these falsehoods? They’ve ALL told them, and continue still.

Lying and greed, theft and cruelty, these things coming from a blackened heart not only harm people and animals, but the very planet on which we live! And still there are those who are basking in the illusion (or shall I say delusion). All is not well, and has not been for some time.

Rise … lift yourself up for no one else will (presently) but perhaps sometime in the near future we will find that many will do just that … assist each other in this rising, lifting each other to be more than we were before.

A Word Of Caution

Published February 18, 2018 by tindertender

What will you buy today? What will you pay attention to?

Time to Pay Attention Words Clock Listen Hear Information

“Most of us are familiar with computers; they seem to run everything nowadays from our washing machines to the International Space Station. A computer is made up primarily of two things: hardware (the physical components such as the monitor, the keyboard, etc.), and the software (the nonphysical programs such as Microsoft Windows, Excel, etc.)

In a sense, a computer is roughly analogous to a human being: the hardware represents the body, and the software represents the mind. But there is something missing in this analogy, because until you plug your computer into the wall ~ that is, until you supply it with energy ~ both the hardware and the software are useless.

Similarly to the computer, neither your body nor mind would function without the energy that powers them.

This energy is what I affectionately refer to as your Inner Fire.

Your Inner Fire is the vital energy within you, the unseen force that gives life to your being. When you take a moment to stop, get quiet, and feel deep within yourself, on a level deeper than thought, you will find this energy waiting and powering you through every moment in your life.”
~ Awaken your Inner Fire, by Heatherash Amara

Change the endingThe energy we all have powering our personal lives is the most valuable thing we own. When we use it for discord, we flame the fire of harm and disaster which affects all life surrounding us, and like ripples it touches all of the other people whos energy is being used in this manner, it rushes over everything creating chaos. When we use it for peace, we flame the fire of care and compassion  which affects all life surrounding us and like ripples it touches all of the other people whos energy is being used in this manner, it flows over everything creating a sense of calm strength.

Time, although we do not own it and borrow it only, is our second precious resource. Within it is the water and foods for survival. When we waste time doing harmful things we contribute to the destruction we see prevalent in today’s world.

Breaking free from conditioning, we can determine for ourselves in the very heart of our being whether we truly wish to spend our energy and time fostering ruination or whether we prefer to foster the nurturing of the communal garden for the prospering of all life.
