Another Beautiful Day

Published October 20, 2019 by tindertender

Saturday ~ Visiting good souled people is always a highlight to my day, and today was all about this connection.

We met for a talk, a meal, and ceremony. My father was there, growing his hair and a beard for the first time in his life. I think he looks handsome.

After the ceremonial fires burned down we went to Powwow. The ladies dragged me out for intertribal dancing. It was amazing fun!

Thank you ladies for always being so joyful, sharing and caring. It is such a blessing to be with you!

Sunday ~ awake this early morning, I vow to remain relaxed, peaceful, and swimming in the joy from yesterday.

Family & Friends

It’s father’s day weekend, may you all be happy with your children. May there be peace between those parents who are separated (and still together) … for the sake of the kids.

Getting ready to go on a drive, meeting my father and new ‘family’. I have met a group of folks who are Sacred Wisdom Keepers, and they accepted me into their family so generously. Grateful to be alive and to have the opportunity to be part of something much larger than myself, or anything I’ve ever experienced.

I baked an apple/mango cobbler, and am bringing a crock pot full of butternut squash mac and cheese. No one told me it was necessary to do so, but that’s what I wish to contribute to this gathering, and so it is.

Blessings to you as you look for peace in your life this day, this weekend, this go ’round on the planet. May you understand that it is not in collecting things but in being part of something much bigger than self, something which benefits many.

Leave greed and need for power out of it, it has no place in the future of life.

Sense And Memory

Dog licking glassLooking out the dog slobber stained sliding door, I do not see them. I suppose they must be out there digging in the earth, searching for rats. The rain has begun to fall moistening the soil, muddy paws will return soon begging to be let in. Ah, there’s one now. As I open the door the scent of damp earth fills my nostrils, pleasant, reminding me of home, so long ago.

memories.jpgI spoke with an old friend tonight, it has been nearly thirty four years since we have seen each other, a lifetime ago. This journey has had many bumps along the way and I am determined to run with what remains, forward, ever forward. Perhaps even upward, as another friend describes it.

How can I pack a mound of creativity into what remains of this life? I want to paint, to write, to sing, to dance, to garden, to create medicines, to live clean and good with compassionate heart, and with care for all sentient beings. Is this what I said before arrival?  Is this the determination I wished? If so, it seems I wandered far from this path but here I find myself once again.

spiritual-loveMy hope before the end is that I discover what it means to truly love … not some pepped up notion associated with lust, but a deep and all encompassing love which is so much bigger than I could ever imagine. I hope it fills me before I exit this place to bursting before I leave, and I hope I carry it out of here with me to share with those who wait.

The water flows and drops into the pool below. Not as I imagined it would be. The sound is not quite soothing, but it gets the job done, or so I like to think, converting ions into something more useful for a pleasant atmosphere.

dreamsI do not bother to light candles this night, bed time will be soon. Dreams a-plenty I’m sure await, changing amid wakeful moments. I’ve left the TV off again for a few days, and it will remain off for many more. I am amazed at the way programs affect my dream life. No, they don’t belong there. My days experience will be the only influence in my nights for a time, healing happens here. Television interrupts the flow that ought to be, it is apparent after only a short while watching.

Gathering my fur kids I’ll leave this room. They run about snorting, sniffing frantically, listening to every sound. They too need to calm down, and so we go.

Family

peace dove
I sat in the stillness, wondering what it’s all about, he tells me this is no match for paradise. I wonder still this morning, what exactly that means, I have no way of knowing.

In dreams there is constant battle, my person attacked … or another. I must run like the wind, or stay to defend that other. The choice isn’t a hard one, for I would never wish for them what I wouldn’t want for me.

There are flickers, like flame, that show goodness and care. Sometimes these images are bright … and at times the flame goes out. Sometimes the flame seems to struggle to remain lit, I cup it with my hand and gently walk with it.

I’m a nourisher of this flame, this light called peace. I’m not the only one, for you are too, you see? If you were not here, then it would not be, but you are … we are family.

 

New Friends, Far Away

Published December 30, 2017 by tindertender

Our lives are so different. I ponder the work you do, and I ponder mine. I look for a balancing of the two knowing there are others, so many others, whos work is somewhere between ours and perhaps expanding beyond as well.

I think of you, now that your studies are finished and you leave for your tour. I imagine the blessings you participate in through your travels. I am grateful for all of those you will meet and join with, as focus for peace is breathed into the world.

Thank you for your work.

 

 

Has it really come to this?

“My ‘Real’ friends will post this …”

What about all the times contact has been attempted, and ignored? What about the times comfort has been given, only ridiculed and rejected because it didn’t ‘fit’ with current  ‘beliefs’? And yet still, attempts are made to reach you. What about “… although years have gone by, dear friends are forever in our hearts …” ?

It is easy to post things thought of as ‘real friends’ on the internet and pretend that we are doing all we can to be a good friend, but when a reaching hand is slapped away, or even walked away from, then the heart has spoken, and this indeed outshines anything one posts on the web.

Love remains, despite it all … for in the end, this is the only thing worth living for.
