True Love Needs No Coaxing

Published December 4, 2018 by tindertender

I love many of the old love songs from the 70’s, they are my favorite. One thing I notice about them is they are singing of the need to convince someone of the love in their heart. I suppose this was the beginning (or perhaps the 60’s) of the shifting of love.

It seems the more we try to cling to love, the quicker it slips through the fingers. Love cannot be held, owned, possessed or controlled. Love must be set free, acknowledged for its power, and honored when it presents itself, in all forms, and also released when it’s purpose in our life (or the others) is complete.

Often when someone professes love they are laughed at, or outright attacked. Love is gentle, it is kind, it is open and free. There IS a force influencing this world to tear it down. The unconscious person flows with this attempt and acts upon it. It is no surprise that barriers have been erected to protect the heart.

I have been fortunate to love deeply four times in this life. Every time when it came to end, I was crushed … absolutely crushed. The final two times rendered me useless for the world for a time. The last especially … my mind disintegrated.

Rebuilding self I understand now that love flows, just as the shadow forms around everything, love is also intertwined there. It is a dance many call heartache. The heart aches with pure joy, and it aches when that joy decreases, or morphs into a new appearance. It is our concept of what love should be that causes this, for when it does not match our ideals, this is when the pain comes.

Love can last for short, or long times. When it stops flowing for us we tend to cling to it. The fact that love cannot be bound, is free, and moves whether we wish for it to or not often leads to pain. People have this habit of trying to force things, only making the pain worse. They forget why they loved, and it becomes anger, even hate. Rather than honoring loves flow they lay claim to it and retaliate when it is discovered to have grown wings.

It is thought that love is obligated to oblige the heart of others. Love is not obligated to anything but flow, to giving freely. I am not talking about being promiscuous or loosey goosey, but becoming part of this flow which is free.

It is a pity that love has actually come down to the physical involvement: sex. Sex is not love, it is something that accompanies it. Yet love exists even when sex is not involved. Love is so simple it is hard to understand. Humanity has complicated it with rules and stipulations. This is another one of those things that has become bastardized in this time.

There is coming a return to love, true love. Love owes us nothing, love is something we grow in our hearts until over flowing … this is how it enters the world, yet many people are looking to fill their cups from outside sources and are left wanting, every time.

Loosen up. You will begin to see the flow and a gratefulness will fill your heart when it flows your way, and you will be grateful for the next person who experiences that love which has touched you, knowing what a blessing it truly is. You will be happy for them, you will be happy you’ve had the experience, and you will be happy for the person who is sharing love with the world.

You will recognize that because love is no longer being poured into you from an outside source does not mean you are empty of love. The love within you is amplified by these gifts, and you can continue to grow your sweet garden of love yourself. Someone will come along that joins you again, and again, and again … it does not mean there will be sex involved, it means you will know what true love is, and participate in its advancement in the world.

Beautiful, whole, and free.

Cooperative Union

Falling back, head into the grass, I turn my face and see you looking at me through its blades. I rest there and I watch the clouds. Logic says they would flow with the wind, but no, the center one moves left and right, and the left cloud moves right, while the right cloud moves left, reaching for and merging into one another.

I’m called to the ladies gathering and we discuss the needs of the group. We plan on how to best serve all members that gather here, we make our lists. I am amazed at the beauty before me. I think of the city and its definition of what beauty is. I am sorry for those who have not had the opportunity to sit with people such as these.

The men are gathered and they discuss repair and modifications that need to me made for the safety and comfort of people living with mobile challenges. They make a mental note of tools needed and schedule a time and day for the “work party”. Although I will not take part in the labor, I will be there to provide nourishment, I am honored with such a task.

I’ve yearned for this type of exchange my entire life. A conscious, cooperative union, working together as a team. It is quite beautiful. At the end of the day my eyes long to close. My heart is at ease and a smile rests upon my face.

Arriving in the city once more I begin to search for, and acquire, items of benefit for the future. This giving of ones self is the most satisfying experience. It is not a challenge, it is a desire to make life a bit easier for others, and for enjoying these little things with them.

My heart remains with each and every one of them as I sit here typing these words. The sun is going to shine on their heads today, and on mine … equally giving of its warmth.

New Year Connections & Patience

Driving by day, flying by night ~ stop overs here and there for work, for task. Is one more real than the other? Some will say yes. I will draw my own conclusions.

Opportunity shines for new experience, new faces, new places. Time must be given for the opening of doors, for alignment is in progress, it cannot be rushed.

Perfect Relation, Abundant Treasure

Published August 21, 2017 by tindertender

Last evening was a magical night filled with the sweet sound of crickets and frogs, I slept outdoors in the cool air breezes listening to the music they sang.

I woke feeling rested and peaceful, my beautiful friend served avocado on toast, cantaloupe, mango, papaya, yogurt and granola, among many other delicious treats. What a wonderful breakfast feast! More friends arrived to enjoy this special event, sharing hugs, additional breakfast goodies and mutual respect & love for one another.

My hope is that the glasses we wore were not defective and tomorrow we will all see perfectly, or at least as we have seen today. The scene was amazing as the energetic shift of the sun and moon was felt by all.

This scene took my breathe away and left me with a calm that lasted for hours. Even on the 5.5 hour journey home which normally only takes one hour … I relaxed.

As evening approaches once more, I think on the events of today and time spent with truly wonderful people, and I am happy. I am happy that on this day I experienced such blessings, I really couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect.

1000 Years Of Peace

You can be certain that it’s coming – an incredible millennium that will be ushered in after Christ’s return. And the devil doesn’t want you to know about his 1,000-year prison sentence because it reveals his true character.

The resurrection of the righteous begins the 1,000 years. The resurrection of the wicked ends the 1,000 years

“These came to life again and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4

This is the first resurrection.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. Revelation 20:5, 6.

What exactly are the symptoms of the beginnings of the First Resurrection? Do you suppose it is the lifting of the veil, the fog that has clouded the minds of humanity for so long? If so, then it certainly is occurring, right now.

The Bible says that Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit during the 1,000 years. What is this pit?

The word for “bottomless pit” in the original Greek is “abussos,” or abyss. That same word is used in the Greek version of the Old Testament in Genesis 1:2 in connection with the creation of the earth, but there it is translated “deep.” “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” How interesting! The words “deep,” “bottomless pit,” and “abyss” here refer to the same thing–the earth in its totally dark, disorganized form before God made order of it. Jeremiah, in describing this earth during the 1,000 years, used virtually the same terms as these in Genesis 1:2: “without form and void,” “no light,” “no man,” ‘black.” Jeremiah 4:23, 25, 28. So the battered, dark earth with no people alive will be called the bottomless pit, or abyss, during the 1,000 years just as it was in the beginning before Creation was completed. Isaiah 24:22 also speaks of Satan and his angels during the 1,000 years as “gathered in the pit” and “shut up in the prison.”

What is the chain that binds Satan? Why is he bound?

The chain is symbolic, a chain of circumstances. A spirit being cannot be confined with a literal chain. Satan is “tied down” because he has no people to deceive. The wicked are all dead and the righteous are all in heaven. The Lord confines the devil to this earth so he cannot roam the universe hoping to find someone to deceive. Forcing the devil to stay on the earth, alone with his demons for a thousand years with no one to deceive, will be for him the most galling chain ever forged.

What happens to the wicked–living and dead–at Jesus’ second coming?

“With the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” Isaiah 11:4. “When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God.” 2 Thessalonians 1:7, 8. “Let the wicked perish at the presence of God.” Psalms 68:2. “But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.” Revelation 20:5.
