Sowing Seeds

Published November 18, 2017 by tindertender

Driving along the highway, enjoying the sunny day, I see ahead of me on the side of the road a form. Upon nearing it I see it was once a Shepard dog, or something similar. I know animals are getting hit and killed all of the time, but this one struck me close to the heart, for I am a dog lover. (I love all animals, don’t get me wrong, but I sleep with dogs every night.) As I was alone on this journey, I internalized the scene, I tried to push it to the back of my mind but it kept swimming into my inner sight.

A couple hours later I arrived home to take a friend on a necessary trip to the store. On the way back from there, I spilled the beans, I described to a tee what had been rolling around in my head.

I sit here now, and I wonder why it is that there seems to be no solution from the spinning of negative, hurtful, or downright disturbing scenes, phrases and events but for the release of them out into the world, laid upon the minds and eyes of others.

There they go, now this scene is in their mind, lessened perhaps, for they did not actually see it, but the description is there, and we all know how detailed the mind can be when reading a book, or hearing a story.

If only there were a way not to put this type of thing into the world, while still releasing and letting go. It truly is not my desire or wish to propagate unpleasantness. When I sit and feel the life of me, those visions and thoughts still spin, they do so until I let them go.

As a younger lady, I journaled. I wrote down every nasty thing I wanted to say to some jerk, I spewed the emotional hurt or anger on paper. I would sometimes make it a letter and seal it in an envelope, putting on a stamp. (Letting it sit for a week before tearing it up). That was a great release and no one needed to wear it afterward … until the day someone decided they wanted to read my journals, which they ‘found’. They were hurt, because some of the things in there were telling of the pain I felt by some of their actions and the way I experienced it. I stopped journaling.

I began to harbor these things inside, and then they began to overflow into the world, and they were ugly, more ugly than anything I could have put on paper.

Now days I am not angry, but still, the disturbing scenes similar to this afternoon, and the pain I see inflicted in the world are still there, roaming around in my mind. I blog about some of them … but there again, they get all over everyone who takes the time to read them.

I see there really is a need for quiet, personal reflection and release. For in talking aloud, or typing on social media of any kind, it grows in the minds of others. So I consider yet again …

What seeds do I want to sow in this world?

Rest Areas Of Life

Published November 13, 2017 by tindertender

Certain humans beings led by evil do horrendous things to others. No one is born with this sickness. It is fostered, nurtured over time.

Rest areas

The rest areas of life have been given as a convenient place to stop for awhile, to regain composure and to gather about oneself the drive and determination to continue. There are those, however, who trash the place when they stop in, making it ugly and putrid for the next who will. Giving no thought to the one who keeps it tidy, they piss and shit on the floor, wiping it on walls, spewing their filth everywhere. They lack the ability to be grateful for this rest, they lack care for any who will follow, and most of all, they lack respect and honor for the one(s) who provide it for use.

The power of suggestion has been tested by governments and advertisers across the world. They use all types of media for influencing the decisions of the populace, for sending subliminal messages. They sing phrases called ‘jingles’, or they spew negativity in all too many ways. It is a form of hypnosis, we know that many actually seek this procedure out in order to help themselves. The media, and others, use words such as ‘cancer’ and ‘disease’ to instill fear and doubt in the human mind, attempting to program the brain to actually produce this sickness within the body.

Woman with mask in hypocrisy concept

There are those who smile, who send the message of care as though they are honoring others, as though they wish to ‘help’. For these ones, discernment is critical, for the copy of a caring human being is very similar to the true one, and hard to distinguish.

Pay attention to it, but don’t get too focused. We live in a place of shadows, it is our privilege to bring Light to these nooks and cranny’s. Who else has opted to go into the pits of hell and start taking notes? You have. Who else has determined to do all they can in order to flip this around and create a safer, happier, brighter place? You have. Those who tell you, you have no purpose are so very wrong … there is no greater purpose than this.

Two Truths

Published October 15, 2017 by tindertender

Strength: What is it? Is it purely the physical strength, or is it endurance? Is it a combination of endurance, while still finding forgiveness and compassion in the heart, not succumbing to anger and resentment and victimhoood? Is it patience in combination with all of the aforementioned things? I am certain many will have their own thoughts on strength, and the truth for them will indeed be true, and it may even morph into something completely different in 5 years time.

Smart: What is that? Is it book smart, or common sense? I suppose you could say the scientists who study disease and CERN’s capabilities are highly intelligent, but are they smart? Do they recognize that they have potential to open doors (indeed probably already have) that would best remain closed? Does the drive to understand the workings of a particular thing over-ride the need to protect life which relies upon it’s dormant state?

Two TruthsPerhaps intelligence only comes to those who do not see themselves as brilliant. Perhaps the brilliance of some outshines their capacity for true understanding of the bigger picture. If not, and the bigger picture is perceived, and destructive scenarios proceed anyway, then sciences love for life has most likely left the building … or the planet. Perhaps those who sever heads off rats only to splice it into the spine of another, are aliens, practicing openly the tests previously known as abductions and mysterious murders.

There is a sinister, dark and twisted reality many will not fathom. It is awful, and to some, incomprehensible. To others, it is easier to ignore obvious clues and build a sweet little dream into which the daily routine spins.

Whatever way it is looked at, it revolves, and evolves. As the unseen and unknown are brought into the light, it will be made apparent. Even skeptics will say they see, and of course, there will still be those who will refuse.

There are 2 things I know to be truth at this time.
1) I do not know what it means to be strong.
2) I am uncertain what it means to be smart.

Renewable Resources

Published October 10, 2017 by tindertender

I have logger friends who no longer speak to me. They think I’m a tree hugging nut. They are adamant about the trees being ‘renewable resources’.  My questions to them is:

“Out of all the trees you have cut down how many have you planted to take their place?” Before you answer with, That is someone else’s department … another question I have is: “Have you held that ‘other department’ accountable to do their part?” and “Do you care that they have not?”

Anger abounds from a man who is trying to feed his family, he may think that tree lovers are trying to take away his livelihood, and this simply is not the case.

The trees are our next breath. If they are not replenished in a manner that is sustainable for the planet, then we are killing ourselves, and those we claim to love. This is the real issue.

campfire

I love a campfire, roasting marshmallows, and the woods as much as the next person. I love having wood to burn in my fireplace in the winter, however, balance is needed, and it is obvious, there is none.

Rather than warring with each other, we ought to work together … different aspects of the whole, to ensure that what we do is balanced and good for all.

Your Calling In A World Gone Wrong

Published October 5, 2017 by tindertender

“Talents do not diminish by gifting them to others … they in fact GROW.”
~ Michael Meade

“Because what calls to us is timeless, the calling can come at any time. At each turn in the road our life’s work awaits us; thus our calling keeps calling no matter our age or position or condition in life.” – Michael Meade

The two greatest fears in life are said to be the fear of abandonment and the fear of being overwhelmed by life. Amidst radical climate changes that make this year the hottest on record and in the midst of an overheated, at times deplorable, political season, it it easy to feel abandoned by nature and on the verge of overwhelm from the size of the problems we face and the lack of meaningful solutions.

In psychological terms, it is the ego that fears the uncertainties of life whereas the deep self or soul knows that we are never alone in this world and that we are at home whenever we are in touch with the depth of our own heart and the dream of our soul.

Michael Meade speaks about reorienting ourselves to death so we may find lost meanings of life and cogent ways of perceiving life-changing events. Life and Death are not exclusive opposites, birth and death are opposite each other and life includes both. Avoiding death causes it to become more literal and shocking. Opening death as a symbol and metaphor gives it a place to be and become known. A culture that begins denying death will end by denying life. If we think of Death as an essential presence rather than simply the absence of life; we can see that it must have its place, like beauty and sorrow, like love and aloneness.

Provocation In All Areas, Division Nurtured

Published September 26, 2017 by tindertender

People talk of the left and the right, blue vs red, liberals and tree huggers … the whole of the United States has become so separated, so full of blaming ‘them’, they fail to see the division that has been orchestrated so carefully by the shadow is becoming very well fixed.

divided-we-fall
If you cannot say that you are for the people, all people, then you are for division … and you will get exactly what you want. States are wanting to separate from the whole, and once they do, they will be very easy to infiltrate and take over. All of the states of America will become like Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Syria … we will become a policed state, all states, much more than you imagined it would be, and we will be obliterated … easily.

It is time. It is necessary to climb out of small thinking and see the bigger picture, to be aware of the greater agenda. Our personal lives and stories affect us, yes, however if we do not start caring about each other, if we do not get away from blaming ‘them’ for all of the ills of this country, if we do not start working together as ordinary citizens, this country is doomed.

We cannot look to the governments to fix things, for it is they who have put in place massive distraction, who have manipulated emotions and situations to get the response they seek, to create circumstances where some are willing to release more and more of their freedoms for the promise of a solution.

shaping_visuel_full_width
Every citizen in all countries must begin to shape the future they wish to see … working together without bias or greed. Not one of us is better than another, or more deserving. True, there are those who do awful things … consider that perhaps they have been brain washed and manipulated from the beginning, given pills for this and pills for that, and have access to cheap poisons called drugs which alter the chemical balance of the mind. These inexpensive chemicals have been strategically put on the street by the ones who wish to see this dark plan in effect.

There is one thing I can agree with in the Bible, and that is that we ought to forgive. For truly, I do not believe that most people know what they do.

While we are distracted by the taking of a knee in a football game, by a vocal official who stands by the prohibition of the national pledge of allegiance in school rooms, sparking outrage among those who do not recognize the complete opposites of these scenarios, division grows.

Petty … petty little jabs at our minds.
A BIG jab about to drop on our freedom … what is left of it.
