Imperfect Perfection

Published March 22, 2019 by tindertender

How often do you catch yourself saying, “I’m not perfect”, or “It isn’t perfect, but it’ll do”.

When young it seems that many see their flaws. People are so focused on their imperfections they fail to see the beauty in themselves. Society looks at them and validates their opinions about lack or insufficiency, rather than encouraging and uplifting.

Fortunately, no-thing in this world is perfect … or what we’ve been told ‘perfect’ is. This fantasy people have built in their minds of what things are supposed to look like usually causes disappointment and gives rise for complaint … about themselves, and about the world and those in it.

Life … it is not perfect … and that is exactly what makes it so exquisite. It is the one thing in this world that is simultaneously both … Perfectly Imperfect.

The poor Bumble Bee was just added to the endangered species list … poor human … the majority have no idea that their lives are being exterminated. Proof of this is everywhere as insects and other animals become endangered and then extinct. Life is dying all around us, we see the evidence in the sick and dying forests, and the animals that once lived there, no longer found in the abundance they once were. Silence ~ it surrounds us when we dare to immerse ourselves in the wilderness. Once we step away from the city, it is eerily quiet in many places.

A man writes a song, musical notes and lyrics. It’s more than simple notes and words … it is a story about the love he has for a woman, he would do anything for her. He writes it, sings it, records it ~ decades ago. Today when it is heard by others it may tickles the ears and spark emotion. There are many who this song has an emotional affect on. All experiences are different and depend on current circumstances, health, or happiness. In this manner music transcends time. As emotions are stirred decade after decade, people are linked to the artist, the their story, and to its affect on them. With this, all who listen are transcending time, all linked with energetic cords.

Can you imagine being an artist with the task of coming up with original songs and sound after decade upon decade of people creating music?

It may seem that things are getting quite extreme … people have always gone to extremes. More people being extreme makes it more pronounced, easier to be seen or heard, but it is nothing new.

If people truly understood the mechanics of the mind they would know that what goes in also comes out and they would be more careful about what goes in. Television is garbage nowadays, but then I’ve never been overly entertained by those who pretend to be someone else … and to think this ‘skill’ is being paid millions in the box office. It’s absurd (my opinion) although I must say I loved the Wonder Woman movie and a handful of others.

Soon it will become apparent to many people that what they have been hiding is actually seen, and they will let go of the story and allow the reality of what is to emerge. For some, this will be destructive… heck, for all of us it will be destructive, for the illusion will come crumbling down and the basics will be what is left. There will be a lot of things emerging which were stuffed and hidden, altering previous behaviors will be intensely uncomfortable at times. It will happen … whether people fight against the changes or not. Better to learn how to flow, like water … practice swimming, not sinking.

Destruction is all around us, it is also happening within us as we ingest toxic foods and breathe toxic air. It has the appearance of being extreme and wrong, it feels extreme and wrong as people become ill, and perhaps even die. While this is being orchestrated people deny its truth, no one wants to believe that such sinister agendas exist, it’s hard to imagine for in the hearts of the majority there is song, there is love, there is care. Innocence cannot see the destroyer for the destroyer does not reside in their heart. But once the destroyer gets ahold of them, they plant seeds in that heart and those seeds fester and cause infection, spreading like a wild fire … and this is the state of the world.

Is it imperfect? Or is it perfectly planned?

This Is A ‘Civil’ Case

Published March 12, 2019 by tindertender

CERN is closed for the next year and a half or so. The ‘upgrades’ which this program is undergoing is of great concern. What could possibly go wrong with a Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ?

The use of CERN’s upgrades have the potential of destroying the earth magnetosphere. If this happens, we will be 100% exposed to the sun, and all things in space. Literally, this planet will fry and become as Mars.

There are people here who have far too much power. Having authority in this world, they push forth programs which bring harm not only to the people and animals, but to the very planet which supports life.

It is beyond me why a powerful force such as our government would ever build CERN in the first place, unless their intention is to bring ruination to this world, as well as parallel worlds, under the guise of science and helping our planetary life.

They will succeed in the end of life on another planet, this one, if civilians do nothing. Trusting corporate and government entities is very dangerous ground, especially when examples of their non-care for life abound.

Claiming Authority Over Ones Own Life

Published February 14, 2019 by tindertender

Have you ever been told you were wrong … wrong for not allowing another to impress their will over your own? It seems there are those who believe certain people have the right to squash what makes a person happy and at peace, forcing individuals to do what makes them happy instead.

This is what I see has upset the cart for humanity. Yet I also see historically, humans have behaved in this manner for millenniums.

Looking back through the years I see myself and others doing what was requested and suggested, folding under pressure to the will of another. How can it be that people are so easily convinced they are not good enough, or responsible enough, or worthy, or capable of making their own decisions? How is it people allow their self to become the ‘mini-me’ doing what another wants, what makes them happy, forgetting their own comfort or longing, denying their own peace and happiness?

As time passes, it may be realized this is no longer an option. We see everywhere in the world people rising and refusing to give up authority over their own life. I give a short little laugh now (as I remember personal history) but it isn’t funny in the least.

Decisions made in the past, made to please another, are not done in best interest of anyone. Pretend love leaves a cavern in the heart, it’s quite depressing once what was thought to be love becomes obvious as mere lust, lies and coercion. After time and deep reflection many would rather be alone than play these games.

The future will be built upon personal free-will, and guess what? Most people will not agree that the decisions made are good or right. In response, say, “My decisions are not good or right for you, but for me they are perfect.”

It is infuriating to see so many people trying to direct the lives of others, often forcing themselves and their will upon them. Entrapment, enslavement, coercion and denying people the right to live according to their own terms, values, and heart space should cease immediately.

Courage … Originally meant “to speak ones mind by telling all ones heart.” While the ‘norm’ has been to not lay all ones cards on the table, truth is, there is no need to hide from each other any longer.

There is massive courage in showing vulnerability. When we see those that do, we are also able to see others who attack. More and more people are preferring to lay it all on the line, sick of the game, tired of pretending. It takes far to much energy.

In the end, giving up ones self, becoming who another wishes one to be, is never enough to make ‘love’ stay. When it goes, the person who tried to be what someone else wanted will have to ‘rediscover’ who they are and begin again.

Visualization for Healing

Published February 11, 2019 by tindertender

The mind ~ at times it will pass thoughts of harm, for others or self. It holds, and gives angry, frustrated intentions not conducive to the improvement of a situation, or relationship.

Focus. See a duplicate of yourself in front of you. Stretch your hands forward and rest them on either side of your head. Sense the emotion there making it difficult to remain in peace. Move your hands … one at forehead, one at the back of the head, hold there for a time. Shift to place the hands by the ears. Feel the emotion. Hook it. Move it down the body slowly, gathering the tension of the muscles as you go. Gather what pains your heart. Push the gunk down the torso, to the belly, to the hips and legs and then out the feet into the earth. Gift the earth all that ails you for cleansing and purification.

See the energetic column of Light which extends from the sun as it enters the crown of the head. Flow with it as it fills the mind, heart and the body left in void after removal of the Ick. Once the body is full of this warm light, cap the head, cap the feet and rest with it for a time. Open the caps and allow a consistent flow to occur.

Sun enters crown, flows toward feet, taking with it all that needs cleansing and purifying. Inhale, see the light filling your lungs and the cavity of belly. Exhale, see it moving to the earth, traveling the path of spine and femur.

Release ~ Fill … Fill ~ Release

When you’ve learned the technique on self, practice harmonizing your surroundings … your household, your neighborhood, your town or city, your state and country, your world.

You are capable of great healing. It only takes effort and practice.

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.

Counting Blessings, Pondering Life

Published January 15, 2019 by tindertender

Hanging out in candle and fire light while my elderberry syrup simmers. The soft glow of this type of light soothes my senses. The crackle of the fire 🔥 is like music to my ears. One of my candles has that wooden wick which makes noise.

Fresh brewed elderberry syrup with reishi mushroom, chaga mushroom, ginger, cayenne (hot!) organic cane sugar (ran out of honey), cloves, and a couple other things. It’s tasty! I’m glad for the healing properties of the cayenne, also because it makes it a little less tempting to chug it … haha.

As this evening winds down, I consider the blessings this day has offered. I am old enough, and experienced enough, to know that no-thing remains the same, ever. All circumstances shift and evolve, morphing into the next experience. I’ve also learned that whatever the down swing, will also be the equal up swing … all circumstances have equalizing poles, just as the South Pole has the North Pole.

As a younger person I noted that things could get real crappy, real fast. It could break a person if they weren’t able to weather the storm, but should they be able to withstand whatever it is … or was … they’ll eventually experience the up swing of that circumstance. I imagine that if not in this life, then in the after life, or the next physical incarnation … but perhaps life in general, this, the next, and so on are all full of this pendulum swing. Perhaps it is our sacred work to reach balance in this experience, and in all experiences.

Do you suppose the pendulum will someday cease to swing? If it does … what then? Will we finally have peace on earth?
