Secret Balance, No Secret At All

Published November 1, 2018 by tindertender

Someday I would like to learn to play these and purchase my own. To sit in the wilderness, seemingly alone, and play would be so wonderful!

What holds a person back from doing what they wish to do?

Issue: Remember to hold on to your dreams, even through adversity. Develop faith in yourself and in spiritual power. Trust is important. You must trust your own leadership abilities, or improve them. Do not be afraid ~ you were born for this.

Challenge: Build love of self from the inside out. Fear is born because of a lack of self-love and acceptance. Without a healthy love of self, we reduce our personal power, often falling into petty jealousies, judging our bodies, and numbing our minds.

Solution: Healthy fierceness is required. Strengthen your physical body. Walk forward in pride and know that you can fight any battle. You need to strike a balance between masculine and feminine.

Make it a point not to get too wrapped up in the physical. Life is so much bigger than that! While our energies are ‘tied’ to physical form, we have the ability to transcend this flesh … through meditation, through the beauty of music, art, and nature, through conscious choice to embody love, care, and compassion, for self and others, including all of the animals of this world, including the earth itself.

Have you ever experienced a moment of giving so purely that it seemed your body disappeared? Have you sang on stage and felt all faded, leaving you there glowing from the inside out? Have you cared so deeply for another that you yourself seemed to fade?

A balance is needed in giving and receiving, in fight and in flight, as well as in standing ground … peaceful, yet watchful and aware.

This existence is connected to other life, not only that which you can see, but also that which you can sense. Acknowledge this and you will be magnified, your world will grow wider, and more free.

Picture Perfect Stay In The Woods

Published October 14, 2018 by tindertender

Saturday was my day. I had a reservation to stay the night in a tree house, I won it in this summers company picnic raffle. Check-in wasn’t until four pm so I decided to go for a hike up a mountain. Boy, that really was something!

The views were beautiful, but after a mile climb up this steep, 3.8 mile trail I decided to visit the museum … haha.

The Interpretive Center had a story to tell.

They knew that the influx of population was damaging the plentiful flow of fish (among other life) yet they continued doing what they were doing anyway.

There was much beauty before, and also after, ‘civilization’ arrived.

I decided I would head on up the hill to the tree house. I was relieved to be able to check in 30 minutes early. This place has no TV, telephone or WiFi, so for the most part, I was there 30 feet in the air, in a cabin wrapped around, and anchored from, this beautiful tree.

I walked in to this house built around a tree and found … peace. A view of the mountains across the wide, beautiful water presented itself to me as if to say, “Welcome Home.”

I opened all windows and sat admiring the mountain and river view as the breeze poured inside the room.

Juniper Beatles are in season. There were hundreds of them! They were flitting this way and that. They are so beautiful. When they spread their wings the sun shines through them revealing a vibrant red color. This season is not for those who have the heeby jeebies around flying things. I captured the many that were in the house and released them outside.

The tree house gently swayed in the breeze. There is a sign posted inside near the door which reads, ” Be good to the tree, it is holding you up.”

I brought my music player with me but turned it off … the one sound from the city.

I decided to sit with my back against this huge, 42″ diameter tree. I asked it to recycle my breath, and my energies. I couldn’t help but also ask how it felt about being such a lovely tree surrounded by brothers and sisters who had been defiled, in a way … cut, shaped, sanded, bolted and nailed. I am curious if they are still in relation now that some no longer have roots.

I stepped outside for a view of the big rock faces and the walking path. Amazing how things look when the shadows begin to fall.

I prepared my dinner and sat back to enjoy the view.

Next morning, as the sun rose higher I watched as the trees danced in the wind. I can feel the sway of the tree, as the house moves with its ‘host’.

I peeled myself an orange for breakfast to eat with some cheese and crackers. I drank my water and watched as the forest came awake with the rising sun.

As I drove away, not ready to leave but the city called me home, I stopped and looked at the tree house from below. I saw that this majestic tree had also been defiled. Hooks were buried deep into it and cables attached from them going everywhere. The weight of this building hung from, and rested upon huge metal rods buried deep into the trees flesh.

Inside, there was only one spot that bled sap. The tree outside, in the walkway, bled huge amounts of sap, all the way around it. This tree house probably won’t last 1 or 2 more decades.

This is the first time I actually got to sleep 30 feet up into a tree. Yes, I was in a cabin, some people have done it without shelter!

I hope others will be able to stay at least one night in a tree house during their life. It’s really something to go to bed and then wake up seeing this beautiful tree, giving of itself to steady you and shelter you as you walk around it.

It is amazing how the heart and mind heals when surrounded by the forest, especially when part of the forest sleeps with you.

Beautiful Flower

Published May 30, 2018 by tindertender

This is a song for every girl who’s
Ever been through something she thought she couldn’t make it through
I sing these words because I was that girl too
Wanting something better than this
But who do I turn to?

Now we’re moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

‘Cause you’re beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

This is a song for every girl who
Ever been through something she thought she couldn’t make it through
Girl you can make it through

I’m passing these words because I know you’re the one who
Knows there something better than this
And you’re gonna to define it

Now we’re moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

‘Cause you’re beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You will heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient
Yeah, you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient
Yeah you,
Yeah you,
Yeah you,
Yeah you,
Yeah you
Yeah you
Yeah you
Yeah you
Yeah you

Harmony & Unity

Published April 8, 2018 by tindertender

UnityWhen the lone wolf begins to understand that strength lies in the pack, the magic happens, and swiftly.

For too long people have separated themselves from each other. Fear has kept us divided. Jealousy has hardened many hearts.

Understand that all things change, nothing stays the same. Embrace what each situation brings, the pathways they open in our mind, and deepness it brings to our soul.

Wave surfers

This life is an ocean with many waves and surfers. There is a rhythm which naturally happens when all are focused … in harmony there is unity.

A radiance emanates from people who are intent on achieving something. No greed, no need for power, simple solutions made successful by those who work together. A conscious cooperation which benefits the whole.

Spa In A Forest

Published January 20, 2018 by tindertender

Today was a beautiful day. It started with an early morning drive to Washington State, via the pathway of the Columbia River Gorge. I wound up at the hot springs for a nice mineral bath and wrap. I stopped in to the local antique store and picked up a pewter pot and cream container, why, I do not know. I guess I just liked it. I drove a number of miles to the next town and picked up some unique hand cream, a few truffles, a coffee cup and some cocao, said to have more antioxidants than cocoa. Upon arriving home I napped, nearly two hours! What a way to spend a day. Below are a few pictures from my adventure. This world is amazing.
