Weird Is The New Cool

Published February 2, 2022 by tindertender

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars …
~ Jack Kerouac

You’ve had a golden experience – one which seems impossible to describe. Yet, be reminded of the Biblical phrase, “To the one in whom much has been given, much is expected.” It is your sacred duty to find the words, or at least the symbols, and courage to express them to your tribe (and to the parts of yourself) that didn’t go on this adventure. If you are called strange or odd behind your back, then so be it. Weird is a mantle to wear proudly, because in being true to yourself, you might inspire someone else to be more of themselves. When you peer outside the confines of the ordinary world, you encourage others to recognize there is joy in being themselves. The word weird comes from the Old English wyrd, which means fate, chance, fortune, destiny, and one who stands in both worlds. Be emboldened to be your weird self for it is the weird ones who bring forward noteworthy contributions.

Mantra ::
I validate my uniqueness as soul gold. As I share, the treasure is multiplied!

Fate and Destiny

Published January 19, 2021 by tindertender

“A true vocation requires shedding anything that would impede or obscure the call. A true pilgrimage requires letting go of the very things most people try to hold onto. In seeking after what the soul desires we become pilgrims with no home but the path the soul would have us follow. As the old proverb says, “Before you begin the journey, you own the journey. Once you have begun, the journey owns you.” After all, what good is a dream that doesn’t test the mettle of the dreamer? What good is a path that doesn’t carry us to the edge of our capacity and then beyond that place? A true calling involves a great exposure before it can become a genuine refuge.”

~ Michael Meade, “Fate and Destiny”

The Calling

Published January 11, 2021 by tindertender

“The problem in most situations is not a lack of calling; but a fear of responding to the call. Besides the issue of leaving everything behind there is also the fear of being inadequate and the terror of being overwhelmed. Under the banner of practicality, most of life becomes arranged to obscure and distract us from what called us to come to life in the first place. Most people remain unwilling to be extravagant enough to wander where their soul would lead them, adapting instead to an endless series of short-term goals. People easily misplace their deepest longings and tune themselves to someone else’s idea of life.”

Fate and Destiny

Published December 15, 2020 by tindertender

“Everyone experiences pain and most suffer from patterns that continue to make life miserable unless something or someone intervenes. The pain we feel comes from the cross-wise energies that keep curving back and cancelling the wise self and the good word that wait to be expressed from within us. Persistent pain is usually the indication that we have become trapped in a life too small for our true nature. That is the usual human fate and the common predicament where the little-self obscures the greater nature behind it. Until people realize what harms them and limits them from within, they are unlikely to call out for someone to help stop the pain. The remedy may be nearby, but until the pain becomes unbearable most remain caught in the agony of one form or another of self-inflicted wounds. As Rumi said, ‘The cure for the pain is in the pain.’”

New Name

Published December 9, 2020 by tindertender

“And I will write upon him the name of my God.”

“And I will write upon him my NEW NAME.”

—Revelation 3 : 12

Man struggling up to the sunlight,
Up from the mire and clay,
Fighting through wars and jungles,
And sometimes learning to pray
And sometimes a king with a scepter,
And sometimes a slave with a hod

Some people call it Karma,
And others call it God.
A beggar ragged and hungry,
A prince in purple and gold,
A palace gilded and garnished,
A cottage humble and old

One’s hopes are blighted in blooming,
One gathers the ripened pod

Some call it Fate or Destiny,
And others call it God.
Glimmering waters and breakers,
Far on the horizon’s rim,
White sails and sea gulls glinting
Away till the sight grows dim,
And shells spirit-painted with glory,
Where seaweeds beckon and nod

Some people call it Ocean,
And others call it God.
Cathedrals and domes uplifting,
Spires pointing up to the sun,
Images, altars and arches,
Where kneeling and penance are done

From organs grand anthems are swelling,
Where the true and faithful plod

Some call it Superstition,
While others call it God.
Visions of beauty and splendor,
Forms of
a long-lost race.
Sounds and faces and voices,
From the fourth dimension of space

And on through the universe boundless,
Our thoughts go lightning shod

Some call it Imagination,
And others call it God.
Acids and alkalis acting,
Proceeding and acting again,
Operating, transmuting, fomenting,
In throes and spasms of pain

Uniting, reacting, creating,
Like souls “passing under the rod”

Some people call it Chemistry,
And others call it God.
Vibration of Etheric Substance,
Causing light through regions of Space.
A girdle of Something, enfolding
And binding together the race

And words without wires transmitted,
“Ariel”-winged, spirit-sandaled and shod

Some call it Electricity,
And others call it God.
The touch of angel fingers
On strings of the human soul.
Anguish and ripples of laughter
Written across its scroll.
Chords from the holy of holies
From sunrise sky to the sod

Some people call it music,
And others call it God.
Earth redeemed and made glorious,
Lighted by Heaven within;
Men and angels face to face,
With never
a thought of sin

Lion and lamb together
In flowers that sweeten the sod

Some of us call it Brotherhood,
And others call it God.
And now the sixth sense is opened,
The seventh embraces the whole,
And, clothed with the Oneness of Love,
We reach the long-sought goal

And in all Life’s phases and changes,
And along all the paths to be trod,
We recognize only one power

One present, Omnipotent God.
