Wild One

Wild One

Wild One,
I see you
Quivering beneath that old skin
Draped in shoulds and oughts,
Wearing that false smile,
The one that says
“Yes of course I will…’
Before you set yourself aside
And conform to that safe, known, shape
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I hear you
Growling in the night,
When your passion wakes you,
Ready to rip his skin or yours
As the truth burning fires of awareness
Blaze their intensity into your mind
Laying bare your compromises
Stripping the lies you tell yourself
Refusing to stay that safe known shape
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I feel you,
As the dawn breaks
And the false floor and tight smile
Give way to grit, grief and remembering,
That deep, fluid, undulating pulse,
That nectar heart, that moist knowing,
That sweet longing and clarity so bright
They blind you to that safe known shape
And memory,
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I need you
Ready to shed your fear and thrive,
Ready to feel incandescently alive
Uncensored majesty of womankind
Embodying the grace of the sensually sublime
Receiver of nature’s subtle melodies
Vivid, ageless, honest and free
I stand for you, and you stand for me
The redefined expression
Of appropriate ‘She’

Are We Listening?

Published April 14, 2018 by tindertender

The question, “Where has all the beauty gone?” is asked by many, perhaps even you.

The truth is, we have created what we now see, by disconnecting our hearts from each other, by holding tightly to what we ‘own’, attempting to keep others from taking that which keeps us in comfort.

The fear around loss, the greed and selfishness it births in the mind and life, are killers to society.

Matthew 16:26 ~ For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

Love, Connection, Compassion, Care, Joy ~ If these are the things you wish to see amplified in the world, you must begin by creating them in your own heart. It is difficult to lay down past conditioning, however it is absolutely do-able, with effort.

The Will is strong.

What reality will you birth into life? It affects us all, yes … you are powerful.

It’s Important!

Hand On Heart
And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling,

“This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!”

And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.”

 

Send Her A Message

Published January 31, 2018 by tindertender

Message-in-a-bottleSend a message to her, blow it into the air. Let it surround her and enter her lungs, let it invigorate her blood and move through her mind.

Common front, multiple backs, which side is true? One is just a facet of the other, part of the same varying whole.

Light in eyes, constant movement, leaning in and then falling back. Rows of individuality, each link in the line unique and of itself, yet combined become a strong union which breaches barriers.

Feathers on the wind bring messages only the observant will understand.

Flame flickers as fire lights the room warming the heart, soothing the mind, calming the spirit, healing the soul.

Heart And Flower

Heart and FlowerMoments awash with glimmers of hope, swell into longing for that which is known, yet not found here.

Days roll into one another, an eagerness for a finalization of the grand plan. Not that of man, but that which is more than man … aside from pride.

I have been told to take pride in my appearance, to be proud of my accomplishments, to wear this thing called pride for others to see, yet this is a trap, it feeds the ego and dims the view.

The heart is the pump of the body, and more than that, it is the main electrical impulse sender for the spirit, the communicator with soul. It functions without our needing to do anything.

All that is good is rising like the first sun in full glory, splendid for the seer to behold. Literally, and figuratively, we will experience swift shifts … coming quicker than anyone walking this earth has ever known.

Building Authentic Clarity

Published January 17, 2018 by tindertender

conscienceLooking straight ahead objects seem so far, yet when I focus I see that they are actually quite near. I think life is like this … everything one has ever wanted, eg: true love … seems so far, yet is so very near. The focus is blurred and skewed ~ a concentrated effort must be made to bring harmony and balance, but first, a recognition that perception is indeed, out of focus.

Walking through life, having a multitude of experience … some which bring joy, some triggering pain of many types … the latter causing a mind to narrow, the heart to shut down, to be somewhat ‘afraid’ to be open, to see a bigger picture. Fear of unpleasantness creates a little cage in which the mind becomes trapped.

The task for those wishing freedom, true freedom, is to step into that fear, to embrace ones self as vulnerability is allowed to come forth, to practice standing tall and strong in the face of that which causes pain. Being exposed one learns to be open and to practice forgiveness ~ of others, and of self. It is a long and difficult process, one which may never end, but without effort no progress will be made at all. This isn’t to say one ought to stand there and be hammered by the same individuals who trigger misery … only as much as we can take and then … Release.

Authenticity requires sensitivity and a willingness to bare the soul. Courage develops here … in a gentle allowing.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” 
― Bruce Lee
