Claiming Authority Over Ones Own Life

Published February 14, 2019 by tindertender

Have you ever been told you were wrong … wrong for not allowing another to impress their will over your own? It seems there are those who believe certain people have the right to squash what makes a person happy and at peace, forcing individuals to do what makes them happy instead.

This is what I see has upset the cart for humanity. Yet I also see historically, humans have behaved in this manner for millenniums.

Looking back through the years I see myself and others doing what was requested and suggested, folding under pressure to the will of another. How can it be that people are so easily convinced they are not good enough, or responsible enough, or worthy, or capable of making their own decisions? How is it people allow their self to become the ‘mini-me’ doing what another wants, what makes them happy, forgetting their own comfort or longing, denying their own peace and happiness?

As time passes, it may be realized this is no longer an option. We see everywhere in the world people rising and refusing to give up authority over their own life. I give a short little laugh now (as I remember personal history) but it isn’t funny in the least.

Decisions made in the past, made to please another, are not done in best interest of anyone. Pretend love leaves a cavern in the heart, it’s quite depressing once what was thought to be love becomes obvious as mere lust, lies and coercion. After time and deep reflection many would rather be alone than play these games.

The future will be built upon personal free-will, and guess what? Most people will not agree that the decisions made are good or right. In response, say, “My decisions are not good or right for you, but for me they are perfect.”

It is infuriating to see so many people trying to direct the lives of others, often forcing themselves and their will upon them. Entrapment, enslavement, coercion and denying people the right to live according to their own terms, values, and heart space should cease immediately.

Courage … Originally meant “to speak ones mind by telling all ones heart.” While the ‘norm’ has been to not lay all ones cards on the table, truth is, there is no need to hide from each other any longer.

There is massive courage in showing vulnerability. When we see those that do, we are also able to see others who attack. More and more people are preferring to lay it all on the line, sick of the game, tired of pretending. It takes far to much energy.

In the end, giving up ones self, becoming who another wishes one to be, is never enough to make ‘love’ stay. When it goes, the person who tried to be what someone else wanted will have to ‘rediscover’ who they are and begin again.

A New Dawn, Bringing New Opportunity

Published January 6, 2019 by tindertender

We have reached the point of dawn … new beginnings and new opportunities, despite what has come before. This fresh start brings the chance to create whatever kind of experience we desire. This is a time of renewal. It will be difficult to tell where the old ends, and the new begins. Release any self-imposed constraints, or resistance to the truth that you know.

Many are very passionate, perhaps even a bit volatile in their pursuit of whatever their goal is. There will be unexpected changes, sometimes quite sudden or dramatic, occurring in ways that many will have no control over. They may shake up the very foundations which people think of as their security. They may even cause many to reevaluate the direction of their life, question their relationships, and the work they’ve chosen. Life knows what it is doing in the midst of these storms of change. It’s about finding trust in that.

Life flows, much like a river. It does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. Resistance will hamper the ability to make sound choices. “Going with the flow” is essential. Breathe, relax, and you will know what to do.

It is time to take respite from the usual environment you find yourself in. Illusion (or delusion) begins to manifest in surroundings which have become too familiar. What is seen as ‘safe’ could be a false sense of security. Break through beliefs that may have constricted you in any way from connecting to the ‘true you’. Take the opportunity to transcend old thought patterns, which will open you to different worlds and perspectives.

Let your inner radiance shine forth, focus on appreciating everything you have that is good and right. Do something physically active to stimulate your inner being. Dance. Sing. Do not let any negative thoughts or habits stop you. During this cycle your capacity to love is being greatly amplified. In one of those supreme ironies of life, the more love you give, the more returns to you. It starts by letting the ‘true you’ be expressed into the world. Show your love.

Power Of Growth and Expansion

Published January 4, 2019 by tindertender

I might change my mind. I can do that. I am capable of, able, willing and loving to do that!

For awhile I thought I’d watch a movie, it’s Friday after all. Then I remembered I’m not real fond of the ‘programming’ … the shows, or the messages, so I built a nice cozy fire in the fireplace instead. It is crackling, and beautiful to my senses.

Sometimes I’ll make a plan, drive to where it leads me and change my plan just then, before even exiting my vehicle, driving away and doing something entirely different.

I am sad the hear there are those in this world who think someone else should “Pay the Penalty”. I think to myself, penalty for what? Isn’t it apparent that humanity has been paying a penalty for decades, even centuries? Heck, this penalty paying business may have started at the beginning of our life story … just as some claim it did.

Who to blame? The women? The ones who give birth to every single human being on this earth? No … there is a hatred for humanity which knows no borders and has no barriers … in this world or beyond. It is not gender specific, although one gender seems to be more pliable. Unfortunately this thing which has such hatred is also very good at manipulating angry, self-righteous, prideful minds … these are they who are most easily fueled, and led in some sort of action which harms others.

Humanity as a whole can bend and be formed by this ‘force’, or it can be aware of it and the tactics used … how these tactics feel when being applied, and how to stop the manipulation in its tracks.

Many good people worship Diety, by many different names. They claim there are rules and stipulations to coincide with these prayerful offerings … but these are made by humans … rules passed down generation after generation. At some point progression is needed if anything is to become improved upon.

This is true with any invention … say, the lawn mower, or egg beater, or tableware, or any number of things! As any device can be improved upon, so can very old ideals. Mind you, there are those things that should never be altered (glassware vs plastic) … but when old ideals segregate and harm any other life form then it should be visited, and transformed.

It really isn’t difficult to honor each other, especially when there is no one seeking to harm anyone. There will always be (seemingly) those ones who so desperately want to horde that which is good. My hope is for a quick, relatively painless transition.

Gaining control of personal thoughts and patterns is key to retaining solid connection with free will. Angry? Transmute that energy to love, or at least kindness. Are you ready to determine what kind of emotion you will allow to dwell in your body and mind and life? This choice is no easy task, it requires conscious, constant effort. This journey of controlling self is one of the most difficult.

Too often people put all of their effort into controlling the actions of others. They think if so and so, or this gender, or that group only did what they wanted them to do, or did not do what they did not want them to do, then they would be happy … satisfied. Yet, this is never the case, for no one can control the rest of the population. Sure, there are progressions made, but at some point, inevitably, there will be rejection of the imposing will and a practicing of the people’s own will … as it should be.

As in all things that are ever spoken or written by myself, I reserve the right to modify every single one of them. Like I said, I love to change my mind … utilizing the power of growth and expansion.

“Commit to being a hunter of excellence in yourself … You must master it and thereby transform; know that you cannot transform that which you have not experienced …”

The last year not only ended with much argument between all of the people in our government, but also those citizens who have been recruited by both sides.

The situation calls for protection, yet it is plain many disagree. Yet even though they do, it is important to note that what we see with our eyes is not the whole of life … in fact, beyond this are those who have loved us, steadily. I could say they’ve protected us as well, but this is becoming harder and harder to believe as war tears apart many countries, ending many lives.

Temptation is everywhere. It is best to think where these temptations will lead, these urges can sweep one away should they not be thought through. Inspiration and empowerment are good things, when the affects of our actions are considered before hand.

People the world over are blaming others … it is always someone else’s fault, these things which cause suffering. This tendency seems to have replaced common sense. Natural justice will be dealt, all people must accept their portion of personal responsibility. True forgiveness can only come from an honest admission.

Ethics are necessary for real success … you can be physically and spiritually rich! These things must be worked toward in a positive way, and not just expected to drop in the lap.

Do not give up, there is hope yet. Fertility is everywhere. Sometimes we all feel alone with something we are struggling with, at times actually believing whole-heartedly that no one understands us.

Pleasure should be a priority – actively seek it. It is tempting to absorb that which others feed us, through the television and all social media sites, but much of it is a tool to generate angst. Don’t forget what makes you happy, be aware of the obstacles to your own pleasure. If we don’t allow ourselves to experience pleasure, whether as laughter, play, sensuality, or practicing our talents, we are less than whole.

If we focus too much on serious issues, and take ourselves too seriously, our lives are not complete. A big part of pleasure is letting go. This does not mean surrender, or giving up – it simply means to hand over our stress and worries.

It is time to relax and be playful. Seek balance between work and fun. Learn a difficult skill through study and play. Be curious.

These squabbles in high places are going to continue whether you become emotionally involved or not. Gift yourself peace and Happiness. It is a choice to be made. I am finished (hopefully) allowing my emotions to be dragged here and there, willy nilly … I will focus on being happy. I deserve it … so do you.

Awareness Brings Answers

Published December 27, 2018 by tindertender

Have people become too afraid to be flexible, or not brave enough to show their true selves? This is the energy that creates obstacles, difficulties and drama. There is an abundance of negative energy coming from people pretending to be someone they are not.We see evidence of this truth everywhere we look.

To embrace our strengths, we do not need to hate our opposites, we need to rise above this way of thinking.

Do not be afraid to open up, we are about to pass through a gateway that will bring personal change. This rite of passage is close.

What’s the most loving choice?

Beetle Vision

Published December 25, 2018 by tindertender

A beetle showed itself to me recently in vision. It looked like a cross between the Golden Jewel Beetle and the Dogbane Leaf Beetle. The right wing was golden in color, very bright, whereas the rest of it looked like the Dogbane Leaf Beetle, with the exception of the antennae, which were shorter, like the golden jewel.

Looking for meaning I find:

“This is a time of high calling from Spirit to use unlimited imagination, tapping into the creative intelligence of the universal elements … using the power of ‘the force’, your inner energy wheels, your chakras will create momentum and drive, propelling you to break free into new dimensions of being into new ways of connecting and expressing the eternal force that lives within you … as with each step you experience the state of becoming ever eternal, in mind ~ body ~ spirit.”

Across the Universe … they are calling …

Love Story

Published December 16, 2018 by tindertender

There once was a woman who loved a man, and he loved her also … both of their hearts intertwined.

The woman was desired by a wealthy man, she new her ‘family’ relied upon her willingly allowing this man to ‘possess’ her, otherwise he made it clear he would ruin them.

One wishing to love her mightily, the other swore to ‘make her famous’ and have a comfortable life.

The wealthy man vowed to have the other man killed should she decide to be with him, so in order to save his life, she had to make him believe she did not love him, and actually preferred the wealthy man. Of course, he did not understand this and became angry.

In the end, she made it clear to the young lover and to all others that her love for him was still quite strong, and she chose love over possessions … having them, and being one.

Unfortunately, she died, and the young man was broken hearted … but knowing she loved him, and he she … rather than being an angry, bitter man.

Love ~ it is the most wonderful thing this world has to offer us, even if only for a short time. It would be wise to build upon the base offered, growing love, rather than swimming in sadness and anger that arises at the loss of it.

Love ~ it often morphs into friendship … which is better than becoming enemies.

May each and every one of you reading this remember what drew you into love, and that which nurtured it. Should it be torn from you, may you release anger or sadness, and work on building love once more … love of self, of others, and yes … even those who have decided they no longer wish to be part of your life.
