Communion

Published April 10, 2019 by tindertender

Only upon communion with some physical expression … only then can you truly feel how your life force is similar to the life force that is all around you. It is only a matter of the differences in form.

Communion with nature is essential. Do an open eyed meditation with a plant or animal. Watch it, merge with it. Relax as much as possible, breathe. You may receive messages …

Losing Time, Or Creating The Future?

Published January 7, 2019 by tindertender

Here I sit in my sanctuary. Somehow I’ve succeeded in losing time. Three hours has seemed to disappear. It is amazing how engrossed a person can get into something, anything, and when time is noted once more, amazement is experienced as the substance of time proves to be elusive.

Although ‘complete focus’ tends to come and go, it is needed now. The time to create consciously is upon us. For a very long time we’ve allowed ourselves to be towed here and there by those who run the show. Having a say in what occurs in the big picture has been on the back burner while we go about our chores, play, and relaxation.

Being fully present can be a challenge for some of us. I like to day dream … I like to think of the way I’d like it to be in this world … visualizing peace and beauty. Some say that imagining a certain future, is creating it. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4232337/#!po=0.00000. Relaxed attention given to this future ‘creation’ will indeed cause miracles to occur. Using The Force can enhance life in many ways.

Keeping an open mind allows us to be aware of the senses, through the eyes, ears, physical sensations, and also detached thoughts. Always, always, always … follow any gut feelings that tell you to be wary about someone or something. Pay close attention as an important opportunity presents itself, one that may enhance your life and the lives of others.

Maintaining vigilance of the clues around, and inside of, the mind and body will allow an assessment of what is emanating from both areas, providing opportunity to sort out any conditioned responses from what is purely instinctual. Examine situations with the heart, intuition, and mind in harmony. Detach, take a breath, and stand tall.

Hermetic Philosophy ~ A Brief Intro

Published December 30, 2018 by tindertender

The Substantial Reality: Substance is that which underlies all outward manifestations; the essence; the thing itself. Substantial is actually existing; being real. Reality is true; enduring; valid; fixed; permanent. Under all outward appearances there must always be a Substantial Reality. This is the Law.

Nothing is permanent but Change. Everything is in a constant state of ‘becoming’, or ‘changing’. Nothing endures but change. All of these changing things are outward appearances or manifestations of the underlying power, some Substantial Reality.

Many names have been given this Substantial Reality. Some have called it by the term Diety (many names). Others have called it The Infinite and Eternal Energy, or Matter. The Hermetic name is THE ALL, who’s inner nature is unknowable. THE ALL is Infinite in Time, Eternal.

Something can never become nothing. Everything is THE ALL, yet what is finite and changeable cannot be THE ALL. Per science: Matter is merely interrupted energy, or force … Low vibration, nothing can rise higher than its source.

THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind – as compared to finite life and mind (humans). THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind, the Illumined call it Spirit. What is Spirit? It means “the real essence”. It transcends our understanding.

THE ALL creates the Universe and everything in it mentally, as men do with their own thought forms. There is no subtraction from, or adding to THE ALL. The Universe and all it contains is a mental creation of THE ALL, All = Mind. The Infinite mind of THE ALL is the Womb of the Universe.

Gender does not mean ‘sex’. Sex is merely a material manifestation of gender. Gender means relating to generation, or creation. The idea of a male and female god or creator is a distortion of the ancient teachings. THE ALL is above gender, as it is above every other Law, including those of Time and Space. It is the Law from which Laws proceed, and it is not subject to them. THE ALL is one – the two aspects are merely manifestations in THE ALLs Infinite Mind … the Universe is generated, created and exists.

There are beings with powers and attributes higher than man has ever dreamed of the gods possessing. They were once lower than man, and man will one day be higher than them. This is the Destiny of Man as reported by the Illumined. At the end of the Grand Cycle of Aeons, when THE ALL shall draw back into itself all of its creation, people will go gladly, and they will be able to,know the whole truth of being at one with THE ALL.

Within the Father/Mother mind of THE ALL, mortal children are at home. There is not one who is fatherless, nor motherless in the Universe.

Chance is but a name for Law not recognized. Nothing escapes the Law.

Mind may be transmuted from state to state, degree to degree, condition to condition, pole to pole, vibration to vibration. Transmutation (wisdom) not presumptuous denial (presumption = half truth), is the weapon of the Master. Remember ever the two poles of truth – the Absolute and the Relative. Beware of half truths.

Anything that has a beginning and an end must be, in a sense, unreal and untrue, and the Universe comes under this rule in all schools of thought. It is unsubstantial, non-enduring, a thing of time, space and change.

Truth as Absolute (things as the mind of God knows) and Relative ( things as the highest reason of man understands them).

Transmutation uses Laws against Laws, the higher against the lower, and by the Art of Alchemy transmutes that which is undesirable into that which is worthy, and thus triumph!

Mastery consists not in abnormal dreams, visions and fantastic imagining or living, but in using the higher forces against the lower – escaping the pains of the lower planes by vibrating on the higher. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the Master.

While All is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in All.

If I imagine a man paining on canvas, and there is a nude model posing on a sofa, do these visions have a concept of reality separate from my imagining, or of life as pertains to my mental image? Do they see themselves as alive experiencing reality? Do they have a personal Spirit independent of my thought? The Law of Paradox explains that it is true, viewed from the proper viewpoints.

The Spirit of my Creator is inherent within me, and yet I am not He. The half-truth = I am god. Imagine the characters of a book claiming to be the author. THE ALL is in the earthworm, and yet the earthworm is far from being THE ALL.

The beginning of the creative cycle, THE ALL in its aspect of being, projects its Will toward its aspect of becoming and the process of creation begins. It is taught that the process consists of the lowering of Vibration while a very low degree of vibratory energy is reached, at which point the grossest possible form of Matter is manifested. This process is called The Stage of Involution in which THE ALL becomes involved or wrapped-up in its creation.

This process is believed by Hermetists to have a correspondence to the mental process of an artist, writer, or inventor who becomes so wrapped-up (or rapt with) in his mental creation as to almost forget his own existence and who, for the time being, almost lives in his creation.

Attention is really a mental reaching out or extension of mental energy. Should you wish to know more …

The Living Nursery

Published December 8, 2018 by tindertender

What does it mean to be a “living nursery”?

In my thinking it means to be an example of what is good, showing those in spirit, who are waiting to be born, what positive creation is and how to do it.

New souls are born every day. Upon arrival a sense of amnesia covers their consciousness, so these ‘lessons’ are in the deep reservoirs of the subconscious.

In body, the examples of humanity are pretty much in our face. The emotion of all experiences can throw the conscious awareness for a loop while the lessons stored in subconscious, from before birth, are buried even deeper … covered by pain, or what we perceive society deems as acceptable.

Braving these life ‘storms’ is the most courageous thing we can do. Embrace your creativity, do not allow anyone to impose restrictions upon your freedom to manifest what your heart sees as good.

If it does not cause harm to another, if it brings benefit to life and to the world, do it … be brave … trust yourself.

Your actions not only have sway in the seen world, but in that of the beyond as well. Put your best foot forward, you are a teacher … here to show all of life, in all of its forms, what works, and what doesn’t. Walk as though the fire of differing experiences in this world does not burn you.

The unmanifest, learning from the manifest. The manifest, learning everything over again, as though it is all new … which it is, since forgetfulness is the first gift this life gives.

Claiming Control ~ Power of Choice

Published December 1, 2018 by tindertender

“You do not know who they are. Neither do I. It’s one thing we have in common. Perhaps one thing you deny.”

This is the phrase that came to mind as I drove across town and into the next.

On my journey home I looked over the rail that separates the freeway and the city streets. There was a huge building there and on the side of it, facing the freeway, it said in BIG BOLD LETTERS Distillery of Spirits. I thought about that for awhile, wondering why … and who … named alcohol ‘spirits’.

When a person has too much to drink sometimes they black out. This is a tell tale sign of the goodness in them stepping aside, for it cannot stand the mess the body experiences during these times. This allows room for ‘spirits’ to enter and take over for awhile. When friends, or others tell of the actions or words spoken in these experiences it seems impossible, for often these behaviors are far from the actual person living this life … and it is because it isn’t them.

People are amplifiers of the Spirit Energy. When anger is fostered in the mind and heart, these things are what is amplified. If love and compassion are cultivated in mind and heart, then this is what is amplified.

You may have heard the story of an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, warring for control of the minds of men (and women, and even children). This is truth in the sense that there is indeed an invisible battle for the mind. The only way to combat this is to be aware, to fortify caring thoughts and control what you will allow in mind, in heart, in action.

Often in this life we are told we do not have control, that life is determined by fate, or destiny. We are told that we are at the mercy of our Savior, and should we not properly believe in Him, we are threatened with eternal damnation.

Understand that you have control … of your thoughts, of your actions, and the way you treat others and yourself. Giving up your sovereignty has been the goal of string-pullers, manipulators. They want you to admit, and then believe, that you are powerless. This is so far from the truth.

Being powerful does not mean putting your thumb on others, imposing your will on them, allowing them to thrive should they do your bidding, or crush them should they not. No … being powerful means being responsible for yourself and choosing what is righteous, without need for recognition or praise or people who ‘follow’ you. It means giving without need for return. It means allowing others to make their own mistakes without judgement … possibly sharing experiences of your own, should they be open to it.

Lead by example … practice humility … count your blessings.

While I hear you speak about one, I speak to many. I pose the suggestion that rather than a pin-pointed focus on one, let the focus go wide, and see the all …. BE the all.

You may have also heard the phrase, “practice makes perfect”. Let new habits form, but only through conscious effort and choice, which benefits all life, including self.

Only when you are able to admit you have control will you be able to make positive change. Only when you choose this as part of the new you, will the new you show up.

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.

Large Life

Published October 2, 2018 by tindertender

It is quite interesting that I should come across this video this morning.

I will never forget being so afraid of what was ‘outside’ that I sat frozen ‘inside’. I had to urinate so badly that I finally said to myself, fine, if someone or something ends my life when I walk out these doors, so be it … I walked outside, and no one was there to harm me. I walked straight into my overwhelming fear and found it to be nil.

As time progresses I find that the reactions I receive from people are me from a previous time in life. I often find myself saying that was me when … I behaved just like that!

I resonate with what she says about the spirit being sort of separate from every day life … and still I watch as it is uniting with all else as well. It is taking time, but it is happening.

The running away she mentions is so true! I ran and ran and ran, and then I got tired of running, I got tired of the same old story playing out in my life. So I dealt with the pain, I stopped all the things I used to do to try and bury the pain and the shame. I then began to understand that what happened to me was not anything but experiencing others in this world … their story, their journey did not belong to me, it was only experienced by me. This brought much relief and freedom. Of course the understanding never ends, it morphs as it needs to, in time.

The union of vibratory structures, bodies and colors extends beyond that which we can see. It is amazing how large this life really is.
