Embraced By The Trinity

Published June 15, 2017 by tindertender

This morning as I drove to my destination I looked in my rear view mirror and noticed the license plate of the vehicle behind me ended in 333. I thought “hmm that’s odd, usually it’s 444.” So I pondered the triple threes, wondering of the message. 

A short time later a vehicle in front of me pulled to the right lane and lo and behold, the vehicle there now had a license plate which ended in 333. Now there was one in front and one behind.

I arrive to my destination and look it up. 

The number 3 represents the Holy Trinity, it is also the number of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the trinity. 

There are many things the number 3 represents, however, this morning I feel the embrace of Love. I will ride with this all day, and on into the future. 

What signs are YOU receiving??

Answering the Call of the Soul

Answering the Call of the Soul

We live in an ongoing crisis, in the midst of a struggle for truth and meaning in a world gone wrong. Not simply a clash of civilizations or collapse of culture, but a battle for the Soul of the World and a search for the underlying unity and hidden vitality of life. For, if there is no change at the level of soul, there can be no real change at the level of the common world.  Soul is the light hidden in the darkness and the natural energy of connection that tries to awaken just as things fall apart.

Even as fears about the world accumulate and chaos stirs there can be an acceleration of ‘calling’ as the soul would have each of us find our genuine path and way to contribute to life.  
No solitary idea or fixed belief can shift the weight of the world towards a meaningful future; but the accumulated vitality of many souls awakening with lived imagination can become a force for truth and healing in this troubled world. Healing is a revolutionary act and we are here to awaken to the true nature of our own souls and become active agents of ongoing creation.  
Join us for an evening of surprising ideas, a soulful and mythological view of current affairs and a resounding collective call to find unity and wholeness in this time of conflict and confusion.

When you close your eyes and envision an evening starry sky, what do you feel? A sense of wonder perhaps, as new collides with old, forming a bond that will show us a different world, an alternate reality which will become our normal of the future.

Higher our thoughts go, we raise our mind to meet and greet the awareness that sifts down from the Universe. All that was, is fading to gray ~ when the denseness of it dissipates we will be seeing a beginning which we have thus far only dreamt of.

We are part of this. The more attention we pour into creating a new world ~ a world of compassion, care, and love ~ the quicker it will come to be. All efforts are needed now, in unison. No effort is too small, for all energies assist in the progression.

You are valued.
You are here to create a new reality.
Release the old program,
It is not yours.

Willingness to step forward in this effort is a blessing for all life.
YOU are that blessing!

What A Blessing It Would Be

Published March 26, 2017 by tindertender

I wish I could attend the festival. I just found out about it however, and will not have the privilege of being there. I am hoping that perhaps many of you will be able to join them, if your heart calls you to do so. What a blessing it would be.


Sleeping Minds Do Not Know

Published January 3, 2017 by tindertender

Poison … Chemicals, Hate, Greed, Pride … these and others have strings attached, we gobble them up and make them part of our daily lives, we are pulled this way and that in our very minds. We are fooled into believing it is good for us, that we need it.

All people have been affected, or rather, infected. We’ve been lied to, fed stories about foods, attitudes, phrases that foster negative beliefs … of ourselves and others. Combined with drugs, legal or illegal, and alcohol, we become easily molded, controlled, manipulated.

Strength ~ There are those who will look at you and tell you how strong you are. You can feel yourself puff up with pride, it goes unchecked, and perhaps your ego starts to feel sure of itself, perhaps a little too sure. Mistakes are made, we don’t see the attack coming, and we fall … hard.

The word strength describes a lie. The word and it’s meaning is a false representation of True Power, an illusion to keep us trapped in the cycle … round and round we go, thinking how strong we are, only to be reminded, at some point, we are mistaken.

The One who holds True Power is authoritative,  loving and kind,  patient and forgiving, gentle … and yet fierce.

As we walk this path, whichever one it happens to be for the moment, we are free to choose what we will do. We decide, with our stubborn and willful ways, how we will live, often ignoring and shunning wise advice. Granted, there are situations which inhibit our ability to do so, yet time shows circumstances shift, and turn, and transform into something new.

We are privileged in this life, we get to wear many hats, and experience many opposites. Not all of them are pleasant, there is no arguing that fact. These are our opportunities to practice the ways of True Power, to develop a loving and kind heart, to work on our patience and learn how to forgive. With these events in life, we find that we become gentler and have greater understanding and compassion for those who travel a path we ourselves have already been on. When injustice is seen, we become protective of those being harmed, for we have been there too … probably in both sets of shoes.

If we are brave, and honest when we look deeply into our heart and mind, when we view our past actions in transparency, we will see that indeed, we have so many shoes … I wonder if they get passed around, from one soul to the other, until we all get it.

As we eliminate toxins, chemical and otherwise, from our whole body system, including the energy we carry and put forth into the world, we begin to take back our freedom, our joy, and our capacity for love.

FIGHT !!!!

Affliction … It is a daunting dilemma

Published January 3, 2017 by tindertender

Affliction … It is a daunting dilemma.

For 14 years I have been having an experience. First, I thought God must want me to suffer, because obviously I was living out my own willful, run-away train type of steam roller existence. Until I hit a brick wall, that is.

Over time, I have fought, I have prayed, I have given up hope. Today, still I pray, and I recognize that it is not I who has power to control, and every experience is a necessary step into becoming our full potential. This experience has taught me that there is indeed a purpose. What exactly that is I can only hypothesize.

If you are suffering and questioning the meaning of it all, perhaps it will help a little to read my views, had just recently.

~ Nothing happens without the consent of the One with authority.
~ These conditions are allowed only because they are for benefit.
~ Strength is built through adversity.

Every day is an opportunity to look this  adversity straight in the face and say,

“I will be strong. I will be kind. I will practice making peace from the storm, and I will assist in the unveiling of the cloud that covers minds, even mine. Those that attempt to create doubt in me will be met with a surety that I recognize the opportunity in their actions, and I will see if this behavior resides in me. If so, I will transform it into something that brings a gentle reminder that it is okay to be transparent, vulnerable, and open to judgement. In the face of torment, whether it be in the mind, or in a slave-like labor, I will persist, and I will work to capacity, and then I will push on through and continue.”

We hear that runners and sports enthusiasts of various types, say that it is not a common thing for people to understand they have a second wind, for they never push past the first.

Let us push past this, and on into the future, where hope, and love … for self and for others … dwells. Where the possibility and the awesome plan for wide spread peace is, and let us be part of seeing the success in that plan.

We begin in our own hearts and minds. We look deep into what it is that makes us respond the way we do. If we are in disagreement with this, in the center of our being, we will alter the way we do things. We will be the example of what we believe good and kind people are.

We will withstand the storm, we will walk into the wind, we will prevail against all odds … we will hold love in our hearts and we will forgive the perceived wrongs ~ we will take from every experience the blessing of a lesson and we will turn it into a golden opportunity, to be utilized for the betterment not only of self, but of mankind … of the world.
