Receive And Release

Published May 30, 2018 by tindertender

Sometimes what is thought about current reality is skewed, mistaken, in error. Someone comes along and tells a different story, sharing a perception they have from a different view. This sharing changes things, gives it a new perspective, opens the mind for alternatives and change that could possibly alter course for the better.

Remaining open and accepting of different ideas is so important in the land of learning. Sharing … and caring … is how we get along in this world.

It is plain that people have been pushed into a corner, a corner where only a few join them … family units. It is difficult to maintain in this fashion, for those who have pushed people into these boxes have also taken from them, leaving just enough to cause a scraping together of the minimum it takes to survive for a few more days. If any kind of illness or tragedy occurs, the walls come crashing down and they find no one there to support them.

I see people coming to this realization. I see people expanding beyond these walls, reaching for each other. An awareness is coming to minds of this dire situation and they are creating change in the ‘family’ structure, change which is widening to include more than blood relatives.

The view on what a ‘blood relative’ is, is changing. We’ve all come from a long line of lineage. Tale has it that we stem from the same few who started life here on this planet. With this in mind, we are ALL family, related through time, DNA, and inherited knowledge.

Busting open the cage doors it is seen more clearly, the world as it is torn apart, as people from all over suffer. We see it, we feel the pain of it … from afar, and personally. This situation has been affecting everyone, some to greater extents than others. In this time the pressure is felt as the walls close in, even on those who have not suffered quite as extremely.

Those pulling strings have given some people a tad more ‘authority’ than others. They sit back and watch as these ones abuse the lesser, they laugh for they know the abusers do not realize that they, as well as the abused by their own hands, are equally deprived. Mind games, the manipulation is extreme, and people function in a sort of daze while they do the bidding of the ‘puppet master’, while they harm in the name of power … the illusion which will eventually be stripped from them.

Only those with awareness, and courage to look quite deeply into their own countenance can turn this around. Integrity, honor, morals and care for others must be at the core of all decisions. In sharing the bounty this earth provides we begin the flow once more.

Holding onto something, we see a clutching, an absorption, there is no flow in this. Only by releasing into the world that which does us good, by sharing, will the doors open for more to enter our own life. A steady movement of receiving and giving allows the proper cycle. Much like the wind moving through the house when a window is opened, and another across the room, so a cross breeze begins.

May you be touched by the goodness in the world today. May you realize this gift as it moves through you, and may you bless others with the presence only you can give the world.

Peace.

Our Common Plight

What is common between people?
POWER … the need for it, the infliction of it, the abuse of it, the lack of it. When power is used for revenge or selfish gain the energy of it may be turned against the offender.

What is an approach that can assist people with this?
SELF-TRUST … to minimize risks, it is important to stretch capability in order to learn how to handle new situations, practicing techniques which afford positive change.

How shall Personal Power and Trust be utilized?
JUSTICE … with honor and integrity, standing for what is right and true. Being responsible for personal actions will end chaos.

What is needed?
ILLUMINATION … working for beneficial transformation requires a deep look into the shadows of life. The flame which burns bright and instills the desire to do good needs consistent tending.

As a professional fighter darts in, weaves and bobs, and then steps out of range, so too must those who are bringing about immense shifts in the world. Stretching ones capacity should be done with intent and focus, pushing hard, and then relaxing for a short time, and then pushing once more. Tend your light, grow it, share it, honor it and each other. BIG things are about to happen.

You Deserve Better

Published May 11, 2018 by tindertender

Fear is bred in the hearts and minds of people. Lack is fostered in countries world over. Humanity spends much time trying to escape their reality, to find something more pleasurable, sustainable … over there. We are led to believe we cannot change a bad situation, when the truth is, we are the only ones who can. Step out of the cloud.

You did not come into this life to play small. You are deserving of the same which the wealthy man has. Your goods and wages have been stolen your whole life, you’ve been taught this is the way it must be for the good of the country, for the good of the people.

The only thing that is good for the people is for you to recognize your value, to claim your birthright, to rest in your power and ability to facilitate change. You do not have to run, or hide, or shrink yourself. Indeed the world will only benefit by your expansion.

Dig in those heels of yours. Make adjustments right where you are. Claim your space. This is your life and you are not meant to bow to any man, you are meant to stand tall in your own right. Hard work, persistence, creativity and goals for strengthening the whole is key, climb out of the tiny box and see a bigger picture. The world will only benefit should we work together to rise, in cooperation with each other, as a unit.

Greed must be stopped and enough must be distributed. The community needs your aid, the earth needs your care. Not over there … but right where you are. The scattered forces must be stabilized, the scurrying about needs an end. The honorable which resides in you demands it, for without it, the world dies.

Power Within

Published April 28, 2018 by tindertender

Life is Pure, Life is Clean.

Muddy WaterThis is a reality that has been muddied, just as many rivers on earth have been by oil. The authenticity and flawlessness of this world has been polluted by regulations which people have been ordered to follow.

While corporations pollute and poison everything, people have been led to believe this is something which must be allowed. Simply because those with money say it should be a certain way does not make it so. Some folks buck the system and we’ve seen how they are fined and jailed for non-compliance. Are we truly free if we choose to live a simple unregulated life, yet are forced into a system where everything we do is watched and monitored?

If the men and women on the street with signs suddenly had land and came together in community where they assisted each other with the growth of foods and composting of waste, would they then be regulated also, perhaps evicted from their land? Unfortunately, it has been done, and their lives are controlled just as every other life is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Perchance he for whom this bell tolls may be so ill, as that he knows not it tolls for him; and perchance I may think myself so much better than I am, as that they who are about me, and see my state, may have caused it to toll for me, and I know not that … No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”       ~ John Donne (1572-1631)

Even in the harshest environments there is Life. It can be understood as beautiful, or stark and barren, it depends on ones perspective and what is chosen to be seen of the situation. If one finds them self alone roots are put out seeking nourishment, companionship, joy and beauty. All of the things which can lift us from the darkness is sought if not too immersed in the reality that darkness exists. At some point a realization will come that its opposite does as well, just as everything has an opposite in this world, and once this truth is seen it can be sought, with knowledge that it is there. Often it is in solitude beauty of surroundings is seen, perhaps missed due to commotion from the outer world.

chose-to-changeEvery day when we open our eyes there is a new opportunity for creation. If one finds they are tired of same ol’ same ol’, this is the time to make different choices. Small steps toward change may seem insignificant, and most times these are the steps we are able to make … not giant leaps and bounds. If discouragement is prohibited from implanting in the mind, and baby steps are continued through every day, it is probable that when one looks back on the experience they will see the significance of every single step, and find an ability to be grateful for each one of them.

Natures seasons

The seasons of the world show us that life is experienced in cycles. All life ebbs and flows, just like the ocean. We may prefer life’s Spring over life’s Winter, however we will experience all of the seasons … just as the tree grows larger and stronger with each season, so will we if we choose to find the nourishment each season offers. Some seasons require somewhat of a hibernation, and others allow massive growth.

The particulars we add to this world through our experiences build the future for generations to come, whether you’ve had children or not. Every action creates a ripple affect, they touch others lives, and those lives touch other lives, and so on. Directly, or indirectly, every choice made creates the world reality for many others.

Ancestors in my bloodOur ancestors are alive within the veins of our body. Generations of memories are carried there and contribute to this day. Connection to life never ends, it is the power of choice which determines the outcome. All of us have been given this gift.

From the tender ages of life we have been instructed that we are to stay within the lines, only allowed to go as far as we are told, and punished if we disobey. This idea that we do not have power has been indoctrinated into the masses, and so we do as instructed … buy this, eat that, drink from here, follow this plan … believe what you are told and do not ask questions, just follow directions.

It can be seen that this idea of “Do as I say and not as I do” is failing the system which it has created around us. Oh you rebellious humans, I love you.

Creating Sanctuary

Published April 27, 2018 by tindertender

We see snippets of peoples lives every day, we have opinions about them, maybe even make judgments about them. It’s quite unfortunate really, for there is no way to know every detail behind an action or way of living for another … yet often speak of others lives as though we know what they should be doing.

This is something I’ve personally been working very hard on for decades, breaking the tendency to have these reactions to people. As a young person I recall knowing everything, needing no instruction. HA! This idea carries over into adulthood and unless a person becomes aware of this ‘habit’ it cannot be changed.

Creating Sanctuary

What can be done to become aware, to release the tendency to assume we know what is really going on … Heart to heart, mind to mind, relating to each other in a way that is kind. People in the world who just want to be loved, who want to see others love each other, yet when they see the opposite they judge and become hopeless or angry or blame for the pain which they see and feel.

Generations of the past have set the ground for our current state. Work hard, survive. They were stoic in their steadiness, their ability to overcome odds put upon them by a government who would rather war and keep the people unsteady. They had to deal with rations and no work and making the best of a bad situation. It was, to say the least, very difficult.

Today, we see the past and the trials that were faced and overcome by our ancestors. Today, we speak loud and clear, thanks to the internet, the world wide web, we can hear each other, see each other, and know that we are for the most part on the same page. We want an end to warring, we want all people to have enough, we want to be lifted and so we are learning how to lift others. With focus and the same determination we’ve inherited we can build a sanctuary for life, all life.

We’ve been in a sort of cocoon, protected from the harshness our ancestors had to face and overcome. They’ve built this haven for us full of tools which we have access to and can use, tools which widen perspective and ability to truly see. We have every thing we need … inside of us, and now, outside of us … we are fully capable of creating beautiful change, a shift toward, and into, a new world where we are helping each other.

All life deserves a sanctuary. This earth is that. Our home is being systematically destroyed by some … even if it be blind … they participate. Counteraction bringing balance is needed. Every person who desires to be loved and to see joy in this world has the power to create it. Every one of us. Let it begin.

Understanding Energy

Published April 18, 2018 by tindertender

Energy ~ It sprouts from me in a very boisterous manner. Many people over the years have bypassed making me part of the team, or making good on promises to allow opportunity for advancement in life, or simply denying training and coaching.

embrace self

This journey has been somewhat of a solo one. I’ve had to be observant of those in action, those who received what I did not. I’ve studied their performance and behaviors trying to figure out what others saw in them, that they did not see in me.

As time passes I see also that those who left me standing alone look at me with new eyes, seeing something they didn’t notice before. Although I would like to say I would join the team, it is past that time now … for this soloing journey has moved me beyond what they could offer.

There are others though, who have something to contribute to this life long lessen I study. I am grateful to them. AND I am grateful to those who denied me, for without them, I would not have been so persistent.

It is still hard though, when someone states there is “no room in me” for … peace … or whatever else they think of. It really only tells me that I’ve got a lot more work to do … and with, or without them, this work will be done.

I suppose it is difficult for anyone to understand another. We are not in each others heads, we have not lived each others experiences, we do not feel as another may feel. Even this leaves room for acceptance and growth.

We may not always receive what we want, but we DO always receive what we need.

Let’s get to it.

Inner Balance

Published April 18, 2018 by tindertender

Life Is BalanceThere is this thought process going on inside of me … every time I am faced with the purchase of something new I always go for the lesser of the items … lesser expensive, less bells and whistles, less ‘pretty’ or desirable by some. I’m not certain if this is a good thing or bad … I’m not certain it can be classified at all. I think about my lack of need for luxury, preferring instead functionality.

Does this mind set come from a place of lack, or a feeling of not deserving more or better, or is it truly coming from a place where less is best and more is wasteful?

My waking dream is to some day have land with sleeping quarters (cabins) upon it and a main ‘lodge’ like structure where people will gather for food growth, preparation and storage, and for meals, laundry, and reading in the library, perhaps even a board game or two. Yet subconsciously I lean toward the small and confined spaces which are really only sufficient for one.

Breaking FreeHow to break free of the limited subconscious need to care for only self? How to widen this into a reality which cares for and is able to be supply for many? Certainly it takes a group effort for maintaining such a facility, perhaps it also takes a group effort to realize the dream into reality.

I am not a monetarily abundant person although I have extreme wealth. I have been blessed with life that leaves me with an ever clearer understanding of our connection and similarity.

As I notice my inner self pull away from contact, I also note the desire to break free from the shrinking away, to widen my truth into something that is more inclusive. There is a balancing taking place in me between solitude and an allowing of that which accepts the larger truth, which is that we are all in this together, whether we are able to acknowledge it yet or not.

Learning to value each other as we live, as individuals, affecting each other with our decisions, coming to realization that our choices determine the reality of the whole, in turn becoming our personal reality once more … it can be a challenge, yet is absolutely necessary for health and well-being of ALL life. It is a cycle, never-ending, always returning to us what we give.

With that in mind, what would you like to receive? Think about it, and then start giving, then await the return. Be patient, for there is something profound happening in this effort, or better said, this allowing. What you think you need may never come, but in gifting of yourself you’ll find blessing. Also important to remember ~ don’t be attached to the way your blessing will arrive, or what it will look like … sometimes what we want does not appear as what we need. Trust the Divinity of the Universe, it is always caring for you … for WE.
