It’s Obvious You’ve Been Made For A Reason

Published November 18, 2018 by tindertender

“Know yourself, because … if you know yourself, you will understand, that good and bad, come from you. It’s good that you should know your own existence: you’ll become amongst others … of a higher existence. When you’re knowing yourself you know everything: with this knowledge you’re free from every evil thing. As you don’t know you, you don’t know your worth! If you can see your Self, you will see God, the Truth! Your servants, seven planets and nine skies will be; it is a great shame that You are a slave to your body! If you should be looking for that blessing so blissful, don’t be chained down by animal pleasures, blissful! Become like men who are great … don’t eat or sleep! Explore yourself like who the world explore and seek! Belonging to the realm of animals is food and sleep: the spirit that’s in you, lives by knowledge … to keep. Begin waking up … how long will you keep sleeping? Look at yourself … you, are a really wonderful thing! Think … and remember, from where you are coming: why is it fact, that in this prison you’re languishing? Break out from your cage and be flying to your tower …

It is so obvious that you’ve been made for a reason … it is such a shame if you don’t accomplish. It’s a pity, a shame for an angel to Satan be obeying: its such a pity for a king, a doorkeeper be obeying …

Upon your treasure you have some dragon squatting: kill that dragon … from suffering yourself be freeing! If you should feed it, you will into a coward change … and would when talking of treasure, become strange. It is like, if you should have in your house a treasure, even if you are sick … in your hand you have the cure! You’ve fallen asleep, how to reach your destination? Talisman fascinates you, but treasure … why, go on? Smash up that talisman and that treasure take up … suffer a little pain, and from yourself … pain, take up!”

Spinning Entry … or Standing Still

Published November 18, 2018 by tindertender

How many doors are there to all knowledge? Is one forced to locate ‘A’ door? Pigeon holed into one line of entry? Or are there many doors, everywhere, all along life’s path?

Wherever we find ourselves on the journey, we will find, upon deep reflection, we are actually in the eye of the storm, standing smack dab in the middle of where all doors … and openings … meet.

Do you dare enter one of the doors? Or do you open them all and stand center, sending love and song and sweetness into each of them? Not really joining with, or meshing with any single room, or path, or group.

She spins right, wearing her white dress. Sparkles begin to fly off of her as she spins, entering the dark opening of each door. It’s as though a tube is surrounding all of them, and sliding down the rim of the aperture is Golden streams, like water dripping down the outer edges. Darkness is behind, yet these golden rivulets are reflecting light.

She stands in a circle of light and all of the doors seem to disappear, all except one large opening. It seems to open into darkness, but as she looks at it, it begins to glow slightly blue, ever so subtle in the dim, near impenetrable view.

Aaahhh, sunset. The sky a pale blue as the light fades. Silhouettes begin to appear. Buildings, hills, and anything that is abound the earth.

Hair like liquid gold, parted on the right. Gentle waves and a thin band across the forehead. Features delicate, beautiful … yet eyes are like liquid, icy laser beams. Your energy pushes against my middle and a sensation like … fear? … butterflies?

I wonder, your features say you are young, your stature small … yet there is no such thing as small is there? That is a word humans dreamed up after they stuffed themselves into a flesh suit. Reality … who are you really? Why are you pretending to be small when in fact you are so very large? Are you here to burn away my illusion? What if I’m not ready? What if I’m comfortable in the uncomfortableness?

Strange. I thought myself courageous, brave, and willing to face what is … yet this moment allows me to understand there is still fear embedded in the mind. It holds me back from walking through doors, from committing to anything, to remaining aloof.

One thing I’ve learned is that while patient, there is only so much of it that can be offered an individual. At some point, the comfortable will be pushed into discomfort, forced to stretch beyond that which they know. We’re forced to face our fear, willingly … or kicking and screaming.

I think again about what nice means. I think to myself, it wasn’t very nice of me to yell at someone the other day. Fortunately for me, he forgives easily, quickly, and just lets it go like it never happened. Then on the other hand I know someone who refuses to even try to come to an understanding, about what? I do not know. I realize I’m swimming between two poles of experience with two different people. One who forgives and moves on, the other who refuses and fosters negativity. Two completely different reality’s, and me standing in the middle … sometimes frustrated by it all.

All of a sudden I consider many other things as well.

Many … other … things …

Burdens Carried

Published November 14, 2018 by tindertender

Burdens carried can weigh us down. Often the burden has become such a part of life its presence is nearly undetectable. The symptoms are masked as physical pain, and perhaps depression, or anxiety.

Is the story of life real, or simply an illusion built around that which is ‘less painful’?

Just underneath consciousness there is a place where communication happens with those who we cannot see. Being quizzed, I woke to hear myself silently answer, “I carry the burden of shame”.

I thought about this periodically throughout the day and have come to the conclusion that this ‘burden’ is facilitated in the mind from birth.

As children many of us are taught that our creations are lacking beauty, that we ourselves are lacking that which makes us lovable. When pure joy rises up in us there is always someone there to squash it. It seems to carry on into adulthood, until it is recognized, and consciously ended. Often we must leave behind those who claim to ‘love’ us.

I wonder about this cycle in the world. It happens everywhere, not limited to this country or that.

As chaos grows on the planet we can see those who facilitate destruction more clearly. They are being called out, exposed for the ‘average person’ to see. This can be quite disheartening, for those we have trusted, and their methods, will be seen plainly.

The tough part of the process is to learn to see our own heart just as clearly as we ‘think’ we see others. This is difficult, for many of us prefer to think we are ‘righteous’ and the others who do harm are not. It is important to know that what we see in the world is also part of our self. The only way to heal it is to recognize it, ask of our self how much of it we see in our own actions and thought patterns, and then heal that.

In the shadows of the mind many things dwell, many things that are difficult to look at, to decipher, and to cast out. So many people project outward, trying to mend the illness of the world, all the while refusing to mend what is in their own heart.

Personally, I am left to discover this ‘burden of shame’ which I carry and make the attempt to find forgiveness where it is concerned … to heal, to shed the weight of it, and to freely rise beyond it … without the use of excuses.

It is a difficult process, for while the inner work is done, those who we see, other people, will attempt to reinforce the negative. At the same time, those who we cannot see will attempt to reinforce the burden we carry, convincing our mind that the burden cannot be released.

This battle is with the invisible realms, attempting to keep us from joy and balance and love. This battle is also with others we can see who are under the influence of those who wish to keep us from happiness.

The key is to observe, not absorb. Outside influences we can hear, and sense, are only that … outside influences. Let them remain as such while you gather your own thoughts and ideas about what you believe will bring healing … to your life, and to the lives your life touches.

Worldwide U-turn

Published November 8, 2018 by tindertender

Strength comes from
being blessed with an enemy.

Centuries have gone by where the hearts of women have been stomped on, where she has been beaten and killed, where the blame of mans brutalities have been placed upon her shoulders … still … her heart has not been tamed or extinguished. No ~ this has only made her more resilient.

When women war, it is much different than man. She carries with her the love and the nurturing. She combines it with the I’ve had enough and becomes the bear, or large cat, or even the eagle … and she fights to protect … not just to destroy.

The way she wars looks different too, although sometimes it may appear to be the same. The depth of woman is incredible. Preferring to be in ‘care’ she chooses to understand … herself, those around her, and even her enemies. Not simply to destroy, but to mend, to heal, to bring a return to love.

We see plainly what patriarchy has done to people and environments the world over. We are due for change, for a different approach.

What will be will be. Let us hope that a change for the better is supported by all of those (men and women) who see the truth of matters, and know in their hearts and minds a big ol’ U-turn is needed.

Let us work together to make this shift. Release the need for power over others and instead work together for the benefit of the whole … as partners … as a team.

What Is God?

If speaking to a spiritual novice during the darker days of human evolution, one might explain God, metaphorically, as if “He” were angry, testing, and judgmental. 

To someone a bit more savvy, during easier times, one might explain God, metaphorically, as if “She” were always loving, nurturing, and forever conspiring on your behalf. 

And to someone on the verge of a total breakthrough, during the latter days of human evolution, one might explain God by asking them to turn up the music, take off their shoes, walk in the grass, unleash the dogs, free the canary, catch a breeze, ride a wave, dance every day, get up early, take a nap, stay out late, eat chocolate, feel the love, give stuff away, earn it back, give some more, and laugh…. Really. 

Really, really. 

Catch a breeze –

Hope ~ Balance ~ Temptation

Published November 3, 2018 by tindertender

Do not give up, there is hope yet. A wish will be granted. Fertility is everywhere.

Silvery goddess of the sea, moon blessed. Goddess of women and wishes, please hear my voice. I ask you to grant my wish(es) and help me flow like the incoming tide toward my highest good.

An equal partnership is a positive goal. Your personal power may be challenged. Recognize the need for a balance of power in your body and in your relationships.

Too often the masculine way dominates the feminine, which results in lopsided, codependent, or even physically damaging relationships. It is easy to see this imbalance in others, harder to see it in ourselves. (Every person has both masculine and feminine energies in them).

You may be tempted to stray from your goal or intention. You may receive an offer that is difficult to refuse. Do not underestimate your ability to attract people to your cause.

It may seem too good to be true. A call to follow your heart may arise. To feel such a strong, sudden attraction toward something can be a positive pull toward your true purpose. Feeling inspired about our purpose can get us there faster.

Allow me to hear your song, only to be pulled toward what is good for me … gently, gently.
