Love Liberates, Synchronicity Follows

Published July 11, 2018 by tindertender

Just yesterday I mentioned to my co-worker how I would love to see Phantom of the Opera on stage before I die. I came home to work on plans for my vacation coming up and the main point of the vacation fell through. While upset, I continued looking and lo and behold Phantom of the Opera is on stage at the theater in the town I will be in at the time!! Someone is always listening and conspiring alignment on our behalf.

Heart, Brain, Body flow. Humans are always struggling to follow their own heart. Often they instead wind up taking the advice and direction from others. Being in touch, and in sync, with the unseen provides energetic support we would not receive otherwise … disconnect creates spiritually dead situations. Practicing the perception, building knowledge of the senses, is such an important step in creating harmony.

Staying in relationship requires ALL of ones self, and the ALL of ones self must be accepted in this relationship, otherwise, if a portion of our self is left outside we are not whole and cannot properly grow.

Unless we cannot breathe, or are bleeding, there is no real urgency. Relax into the days situations and remember to practice your conscious breathing. If you do not open your heart, existence will crush you. If you don’t meet the world where you are, the world will crush you.

The heart is the seat of the soul, the essence of who we are. The power of the heart is the power of life itself, the power of the Divine Universe. Opening the heart may require release of the things given you … the car, the house, everything. Face fear.

The longest journey you’ll make in life is from the head to the heart. When actions contribute something vital to the world, then abundance flows.

Sit down, cry and suffer. You are allowed to. Learn not to deny your pain. Learn to ‘let beauty in’ while you are suffering. Learn to distinguish the clarity, the truth not covered by hate or jealousy or fear.

Is there really one god-man as Savior? Or is it the many who come together as One People, connected, working for the whole in benefit for all, who is the Savior of this world? Seek those who desire the harmony you wish to create.

If you do not know what to do, do nothing, breathe. Four to five second in-breath, don’t hold it, followed by a four to five second out-breath … even flow.

Everybody is a child but the child is hidden. We forget the child, we think the child has forgotten too, but NO. “Hello!” the child says, “I am here! Listen to me!” Being childish and self centered reduces our world. Being child-like returns us to wonder.

Synchronicity, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, is not merely a coincidence, it is a miracle of Divine Connection, be open to it. This is not an accidental Universe. Pay attention to the in-between moments, breathe in inner-appreciation.

The heart is my Guru. Follow your aliveness not to become, but to be brought alive. Love is everywhere we choose to create it … we are the change that this world needs.

Who Are You?

All people are exactly where they need to be on their personal path. More often than not, this path is not understood until later. Even then, the purpose of these lessons may be elusive, yet after experience it is easy to see the huge affect they have on our life.

There are those who may try to break your will, your spirit. They may do everything they can to douse your flame. They would like you to be subservient, to conclude they have authority. They act as though you haven’t capacity for divine connection, they may even insinuate you are not divine.

In the silence, when you are sitting with your thoughts pondering the meaning of it all, you sense you are not alone … you have never been alone. Some might respond, “But I AM alone!” In a sense, yes ~ in truth, no. Cutting the chaos from life and being in stillness more often, you will come to recognize that the commotion of the world does not reside within you. It is only an echo running circles in your mind.

Do not let the world break you, do not let it rob you of your inner peace, of joy and of the connection you were born with … realms which may not be remembered are open and welcoming.

As the mind spins round and round with the echo of pain and suffering of the world, as it draws you into its mess, remember who you are … a sovereign being, a powerful creator. Whatever you wish to be will be if you set your mind to it. Like walking, or breathing, after a time it will become quite natural, it will occur without thought, it will simply BE.

At night as you lay in bed trying to sleep and thoughts begin to churn in your mind, anxiety rises and the hours tick by, so sleepy you are but it just won’t stop. It will … breathe, long and slow. Roll onto your back and place your hands on your belly. Breathe and feel your stomach rise and fall with the slow inhale, and the slow exhale. With eyes closed point your inner vision to the ceiling, or the stars, and breathe. Two minutes go by, five, perhaps more … things calm down and you may be asleep before you know it.

This is an example of what you are capable of. With focus and clarity, with determined drive, anything is possible.

There is no need to relinquish who you are or to bow down to someone else. You are great! and you have much to offer this world.

Hone your skills of concentration. Notice and refine your senses, feel the connection to the energies surrounding you. This world is so much bigger than what the eyes behold.

Grow.

Gift Of Life

Published March 3, 2018 by tindertender

Willow in wind

Here I stand
in the doorway
of my mind.
The wind
rushes past
my left as it
goes behind
me and circles
back around
to my right,
wrapping me

in its embrace.
Where is this
breaths source?
I look, yet
just at the arc
in front of me
where it turns,

there is a blank
space where
I cannot see.
This ellipse 
of ever rotating
breath, I am
grateful for that
which gifts
me life.

A Time For Action

Published January 12, 2018 by tindertender

A twinge strikes the tenderness of a wound,
Muscles spasm in reaction.
Patience is wearing thin,
No distractions, for they are irritating,
Nearly as irritating as this periodic burning.

A friend says hello, and another does as well,
Struggle to respond wriggles from dry fingers ~
Tired mind.

Restless legs kick out,
Teeth clench,
Breath expelled, held,
And expelled again.
Whoooooooooo ….

Time to do something about it.

I Rise, I Shine

Published April 2, 2017 by tindertender

Bang, Bang, Bang …
The ball drops.
I hear it hit the backboard
And drop again.

Sleeping dogs lie.
Surrounded by sound,
The stomach flip flops,
Unease fills the body.

“Breathe” I say,
Draw it in and fill the lungs.
“What are you doing?” he says.
I respond, “What are YOU doing?”

Breathe again,
Feel the breath move through the body.
Swallowing doubt,
I release the holds on the mind.

There is a shift,
Many feel it.
I am not alone,
Love prevails.

Manipulation, control,
They have no place here.
Here, freedom dwells,
Clawing at the walls I climb.

I climb from the darkness
Called “ownership” and I claim my right.
This life is mine,
I choose where time is spent.

Before time, He was there.
After time, He will still be there.
I wait, I learn,
I rise, I shine.
