A Different Kind Of Movement

Published March 9, 2018 by tindertender

Many people assume the goal is the “rise above” suffering. Busily, they try to do this, struggling daily. So far, we can see pretty well that this doesn’t work.

Some say they are swimming in pain and they simply can’t get out. Well, here’s the deal, a connection to what assists in moving through it must be made.

A swimmer needs to find their fins, so to speak. A ‘walker’ must learn to balance on legs. An emotion surfer, a mover and a shaker, learns to end that perpetual sinking and swim, and walk, and fly through it, finding the other side. A skill like any other, and just as difficult to learn.

Don’t give up if you are thinking to. The traveling method you are learning now beats all else!

Living Without Strings

Published January 22, 2018 by tindertender

Argument has it … it never ends. It is a pity the way compromise of a sort can never be made. Back and forth they go … it is as though one has to convince the other of their point of view. I do not know why they can’t just say to each other, “I respect your views, and here are mine. Now let us move forth into progression of a kind.” But no, spinning, spinning, spinning … minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, year after year, it never ends. I am sorry for this … I do not think I’ve caused it, but then perhaps I do not know. Maybe the simplest of things has gotten skewed by my own contribution, however that continues to show up. It changes, frequently.

I close my eyes and am still for a moment …

It very well could be all of the tentacles of the past which has inundated my journey are twisting what started as something so beautiful into a mess. Releasing the binds that have formed knots in this life, in this heart and mind, is not an easy task. There are no teachers, only experience. It is a short life … will there be time sufficient to complete the smoothing of thought?

I feel as though I should apologize, yet I do not know exactly what I’ve done wrong. I can theorize, there are plenty who will offer their opinions on where I’ve erred. It seems this is the easiest thing for folks to do … yet I continue to look deep and hard into my heart. Who am I? There are many answers, so many possibilities, so many truths. A well rounded experiencer of light … of shadow … of joy … and of pain. It is all true, every reaction, every response to an outside event or occurrence, was me … in the moment. And I have changed immensely over time.

Time ~ the clock keeps ticking, going round and round. It will stop, indeed, it stops for many every moment, every day, and someday it will stop for me too. I am curious, where on the wheel of time I will be when I arrive in a timeless state. I wonder if all experiences will conglomerate into one big ball of energy, which would be the new me. Will my spirit be able to handle all of it? It is a good question, for the nervous system of the human body can only take small portions of this grand reality at once, before a fissure erupts in the psyche.

Some call it madness, some call it a gift. Few can lead one through it, even fewer survive it. So here we are, floundering in a vast sea of awareness that was not here before. Embracing the unknown is a difficult task for fear is a substantial staple in this land, perhaps in many lands.

Twisted shadows in twisted minds hide in plain sight. Seeing the whole from the inside is difficult, impossible even. The only way is to step out of the box, turn around, and truly see. Death may occur, it often does but once seen, life will never be the same. Explaining to someone, anyone, impossible, for we can only comprehend what we’ve experienced, no more, as much as we’d wish to.

So yes, this journey is a solo one. There really is no one who can travel this path the way you can, the way I can. We have come equipped for a certain amount of tension, the skill is in keeping just taut enough, so we do not go limp, or snap into pieces. Like balancing a pencil on its tip, gently moving it in any direction to maintain its uprightness, this is our life.

Live without strings. You’ll be glad you took time to develop fortitude.

The First Time I Saw You

Published July 17, 2017 by tindertender

The beauty behind the words of this song touches my soul, and I remember … Perhaps you do too.

We all have memories, and if we are fortunate, this is one of them. Enveloping love energies, within and without our bodies and minds, filling our heart until we thought it might burst.

The warmth of love is more than a memory though. When we allow our vulnerabilities to come forth, when we gift ourselves the privilege of experiencing such love, without fear of what others may think of it, we will be free.

My hope is that all people will be able to say, yes, I know what this feels like. My hope is that once they do, they will ensure actions take place in their lives which grow this love like the finest and most beautiful and nourishing garden there ever was.

Journey Of Gratitude

Published March 28, 2017 by tindertender

Cherry blossoms
Blue Sky
Playing in the rain
Frogs & tadpoles
Salamanders
Stinging nettles
Fungi
Flowers
The smell of the earth after rain
The sound of rain landing in water, on a roof, on the leaves of trees
The rivers rush, floating on it for miles
The smell of fresh cut grass
Potato bugs
Wind surrounding body, entering lungs
Pulling vegetables from the soil tended by my own hands
Animals, pets, non-pets, flying things, swimming things and others
Fire (controlled)
Warmth
Starry nights
Friendship
Mother
Feeling fully all experience
Working hard
Relaxing too
Music
Spirit, knowing I am loved
Showers or baths or a swim in the lake or river
The taste of my hair wet with ice cold glacier water
The blue in my veins after swimming in that ice cold water
Walking in a meadow, into the woods, confronted by a startled and awakened herd of elk
Long drives
Singing
Peace
Hiking on a wooded trail
Birds singing, especially early morning
Geese and ducks swimming happy with their chicks
Collecting feathers and making hand held fans
Painting
Reading
Bicycle ride
Air deep into lungs
Sweat on brow
Salty tears
Laughter
JOY

These are just a sampling of what I am grateful for. There have been so many wonderful experiences in this life … I really like it here, I do not want this world to be destroyed. My hope is that you feel the same, and will count all of the pleasant memories you can find in your mind.
