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.

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.

Together, Great Indeed

The internal world of each individual is intense, often so intense all else pales in comparison. In love we may feel our inner fire pouring out into the one we have such affection for, we may wonder how they cannot be affected by it. In pain we may wonder why others do not seem to notice how we suffer. All the while the undeniable force of our emotions prohibits us from noticing that others are going through the exact same scenario.

Feelings of insignificance can overwhelm us sometimes while we are busy feeling our way through life. We look into the world and see people laughing and wonder why it just doesn’t seem that fun to us. We wonder if it is a false happy, we wonder if it is a trick, we wonder if somehow we’ve been cheated and left to suffer in this world while others thrive.

It is said that mankind is made in Gods image. If that is true, and this planet is the only one which can support life as we know it, then He better get busy, for it looks like His creation is intent on destroying this wonder. All the angels and disembodied persons who would like to give it another go ought to practice sending peaceful intentions to the people so they calm the heck down. But then, maybe to them, we are insignificant … maybe this is why so many people feel the power of that emotion which has them convinced this is truth.

They say they are looking for the key … the key to eternal bliss. It has been said that once it is recognized all that remains is to simply ‘let it be’. The minds (or should I say, consciousness) that are not capable of peace will never attain the key to eternal bliss, for they bicker among themselves constantly. They leave no room for quiet, for stillness.

People helping peopleThe questions always arise: Is this the one? Will you help me help we? Is there enough time to turn it around? Is it possible to save the world? Does true love exist?

Truthfully, unless we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and begin to reach out and connect with each other, we will not be able to come to the realization that we are all very much alike, experiencing very much the same things. Once we understand this, it will be so much easier to care about each other beyond the superficial fancy.

I Am You, You Are Me ~ WE must work together to bring healing to this world. If we were created by the fine stuff which is Divine and supreme, then perhaps it is us who must pool our resources in order to save the earth. Rather than waiting for a miracle, we ought to recognize that WE are that miracle. ALL of us, none greater than the other, yet together, great indeed.

Perceptible Shift

Light of nightThe bell tolls as night falls here, where I am. I see you on the other side of the world as daylight is beckoning you to rise. You say when you see me in the light, “You’re white.” Yes I am, but that is the skin only, for beneath it is a combination of all that life has ever been. Words cannot describe this reality fully.

Lines which separate are diminishing. Skin color, gender, groups and factions, tribes and sects … a blending is occurring even amid those who struggle against the evolution. Expansion of the world, from the inside out. Each individual is experiencing this shift in consciousness, however subtle it may be for them, currently.

The many aspects of life are coalescing into one unit. Fragmented as the past has been, harmony is developing.

Some see only chaos and the fear experienced in the midst of it. Special souls who open eyes and hearts with their generosity. They are the epitome of what it means to give everything, placing themselves (although it may be only on a subconscious level for now) in the center of destruction, working toward massive change in the minds and hearts of the world.

“If the love within your mind is lost and you see other beings as enemies, then no matter how much education or knowledge or material comfort you have, only suffering and confusion will ensue.”
     ~ Dalai Lama

We should be the change we want to see.”
     ~ Gandhi

“If I am unable to bear even this minor suffering of the present, then why don’t I ward off the anger that would be the cause of hellish pain?”
     ~ Shantideva

The Day That Everything Changed

Published March 22, 2018 by tindertender

Wilderness River

The sun was shining. Leaning back in my lounge chair I watched the river flow, the sun glistened off the rippling current, the sound lulled my mind. It was quite warm, and amazingly there were no thoughts, I was wide open and at peace.

Connection happened just then with those I had not been aware of. I felt like a girl who had just been bestowed with attention, special somehow. I looked around me yet could not physically see the source.

That was summer of 2002. I spent over a decade trying to convince myself of what others opinions were of it, that something must be wrong with me. I drove myself batty trying to come back into the person I was, but chaos ensued … going back was / is … not possible.

For many years after 2002 there was a struggle going on, one which crushed my life. It seemed as though I was not the same person, there was no peace, only constant tug of war in mind. One thing I’ve discovered through it all is there is within me a will of iron. I survived.

Sacred Community

I met a wonderful group where I lived for 10 years after this experience. They helped me open up and to see the possibility and wonder of sacred connection. Chaos began to quiet and I sought to understand, with support from others who had a different point of view than the so called professionals I had been listening to.

I moved again 2 years ago and spent time in solitude, processing some pretty intense emotion. Again, chaos settled. I began searching for others who understand that reality is not what we may have understood it to be, it is so … much … more.

Recently I was introduced to a small group who gathers and the teachings are different and profound. I feel my head ‘pressurizing’, or shall I say, ‘depressurizing’.

Finally, 16 years later, I am so close to releasing all that rubbish and beginning again, with what is true and good and beautiful. I am closer to that day of stillness in mind than I have been since the beginning, I sense it is so near, the space of ‘no thought’. It is not a spacey frame of mind, just complete stillness, in awareness. There is a comfort there I have missed greatly.

SunflowerSoon I will meet another group of people, who celebrate union with life in a different manner than past exposure. I am being blessed with these two introductions to varying groups of people, it’s as though the time has come … to try again, to merge.

Once again this life is molding into a we consciousness. Many others feel it too, it is seen in the actions of people in all arenas of the world.

What a wonderful thing to have someone state so clearly that the mind will find millions of ways to keep a life in suffering. Sometimes, when we aren’t used to sacred connection, ‘hearing’ is difficult, although it happens just the same. The ability to process information needs fine tuning, and I at least find it easiest to sit with others who have walked the path and are able to speak in a way that is readily understood.

My perception of what a wise man once said is, “You can stand stoically alone, strong, yet you are still alone.” Community helps us to stretch boundaries more swiftly, moving beyond where we are in solitude.

Being vulnerable is difficult, yet it is also the door to freedom, truth, and acceptance. There is no need to hide from each other any more.

Conscious Connection

Conscious Connection

I sit listening to the high pitch in my ears as well as music, soft without words in the headphones. The two sounds mesh and I feel the pulse of blood course through my body. More than blood though, there is energy, alive and fierce.

I thought of the supplements I take and realized I hadn’t taken them. A cleanse has recently happened … first a 3 day fast, then a cell cleanse followed by little food and much water, or at least more than normal. The body is vibrating a soft hum.

Understanding has changed. It has gone from the superstition taught in today’s world to a deeper source, truer. Many call it mythology, but the evidence cannot be denied. Regions around the whole world have similar data which has been kept in shadow for a very long time.

Funny when really considered … history is a made up story, much of it … mythology more real than we’ve been led to believe.

Orb,
Eagle staring me in the face,
Huge, hooked beak right before my eyes.

Sensing is quite interesting. Coming into it again, slowly. The first round was too fast. While I do not understand it fully (or at all, consciously) it’s happening, none the less.

 

Open Your Mind

Parallel Universes, different life forms, yet all of the same consciousness.

Many on earth have a belief that Jesus was/is the savior. In these parallel universes, some are still seeking theirs.

Is it you, is it me …
