Every Journey Has Its Collections

Published January 25, 2019 by tindertender

It seems most days many acquaintances don’t have anything to say. No information to share, no advice to offer, no assistance in solving complications.

Frustration arises as a tired mind takes in this … this situation which has transpired into ‘normalcy’. This is a difficult realization for one who has never rested in ‘normal’, especially when it appears as this is a seemingly one-sided reality. Alone, yet surrounded by an incalculable figure of other life.

Observation and experience screams this is SO unhealthy!

Every once in a while this life gifts situations that cause a desire to drop everything and leave it all behind. The need to ‘purge’ becomes strong. It will not be denied … how much time remains for the old, is yet to be seen.

There is at least one more major shift waiting … it calls, it pulls strongly.

It is amazing how the human struggles, or at least provides resistance to change. The older one gets, the clearer it becomes that to resist change is futile … change is going to happen regardless if one holds to the past/present or embraces the future … it is a river, getting into the flow can be a challenge.

It is not always easy being nice. The more frustrated a person gets with the current the testier they may become.

Imagine having to spend time in a home where people continually talk to each other about you … not caring that you are right there listening. Imagine telling them to zip it, but they pretend to not hear you and they keep talking to each other, ignoring your repeated statements as if you are a ghost who left an unforgettable memory behind, and folks just can’t seem to stop discussing it.

The pit of the stomach turns as the desire to leave them all to themselves arises. Is this an opportunity to practice emotional alchemy? Transmuting lower vibratory thought patterns into something more beneficial? What a challenge! Is this the time to practice manifestation?

Dream a new dream … build a new life.

Thieves and crooks, stealing wages in taxation, stealing attention by creating unending drama, siphoning energy from people and never leaving anything beneficial behind. This cannot be allowed. It will not be permitted. Sooner or later that ‘power grab’ shall be stifled.

Here I am, riding the wave.

The whole wide world is FREE,
and I’ve got a hole in my heart.

After deep reflection over life, it is amazing how beautiful and intense and vibrant all aspects of it have been! These deep reflections have been occurring quite a bit lately. This ‘review’ reminds me of what people say the end of life review is like … except I plan on being around for a very long time yet … so, this is indeed strange.

Since everything in life has an equal in strength opposing pole, then that means those who love intensely are capable of the equal in intensity, opposing pole. Likewise, those who despise everything with an indescribable intensity are capable of the opposing swing of its opposite, equally intense.

But … but … I only want to Love! Why must that experience swing to the other end? If the pendulum swing slows, will the intensity also lessen? It seems we cannot have both. Are the down-times worth the up-times? Will they be equal in duration as well as intensity? Does anyone ever have a long duration love with minimal down swings?

Temptation … I can’t resist. This is no ordinary Love.

How many are there?
How do we reconcile?

When a beautiful song comes on, I find that my eyes want to leak. All my life I just wanted to be in love, and be loved in return. It seems this is a universal desire among people … even among the animals. Common ground among ALL life.

It’s not all candy and ice cream … some times it gets a little sour.

Is reality a degradation, or an expansion? It can be difficult to tell, for both require a tearing down of what currently is, making it into a was … so the new can be.

Alchemical Mysteries

Published August 14, 2018 by tindertender

I, for one, will be purchasing Carl Jung’s book “Volume 13, Alchemical Studies”.

There is a formula here that can ease the issues we face today. It is important that we discover, and implement knowledge from past studies which can bring balance to practices of our current affairs.

Cacaphony

Cacaphony

Often described as a harsh, discordant mixture of sounds, it is also the mash of chaos that intertwines in daily life, it lives in dreams as well.

Daily, there may be some let down. People don’t always live up to be the support that we need. While we work to become strong in our own right it is difficult to remember the affect our actions may have on others (or in-action). This little box we’ve become accustomed to living in is quite small. Unless we begin, and continue, to look outside of our personal situations change will not become solidified … in our daily life or in the world as a whole.

True, there are many times in this experience where we are let down, but this is only because we’ve set our expectations so high and are typically unwilling to accept less. Seeing others as we see ourselves … or seeing ourselves as we see others … is a real eye opener.

When I ask out loud why some people are such jerks and untrustworthy, I then flip it and ask of myself … am I a jerk? Am I trustworthy? I honestly look long, hard and deep into my own countenance, and often that alone will cause me to just zip it and begin the inner work once more.

Learn to dance amidst chaos. Work your alchemy and transform your thoughts, your actions. It will be reflected in the outer world, situations will melt and form anew.

Building Authentic Clarity

Published January 17, 2018 by tindertender

conscienceLooking straight ahead objects seem so far, yet when I focus I see that they are actually quite near. I think life is like this … everything one has ever wanted, eg: true love … seems so far, yet is so very near. The focus is blurred and skewed ~ a concentrated effort must be made to bring harmony and balance, but first, a recognition that perception is indeed, out of focus.

Walking through life, having a multitude of experience … some which bring joy, some triggering pain of many types … the latter causing a mind to narrow, the heart to shut down, to be somewhat ‘afraid’ to be open, to see a bigger picture. Fear of unpleasantness creates a little cage in which the mind becomes trapped.

The task for those wishing freedom, true freedom, is to step into that fear, to embrace ones self as vulnerability is allowed to come forth, to practice standing tall and strong in the face of that which causes pain. Being exposed one learns to be open and to practice forgiveness ~ of others, and of self. It is a long and difficult process, one which may never end, but without effort no progress will be made at all. This isn’t to say one ought to stand there and be hammered by the same individuals who trigger misery … only as much as we can take and then … Release.

Authenticity requires sensitivity and a willingness to bare the soul. Courage develops here … in a gentle allowing.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” 
― Bruce Lee
