Who Makes Your “I AM” Statements?

Published May 14, 2018 by tindertender

How much longer are you going to let someone else determine what your “I AM …” statements are going to be?

Throughout life ~ as children, young adults, adults ~ you may have listened and taken to heart what others say of you. “You’re too fat …You’re too skinny … You’re too loud, You’re selfish … You’re this … or that … or you have no capacity for this or for that, or you’ll never amount to anything … Whatever it is … most often it is negative.

How long are you going to believe this crap? How many more days, months, years are you going to allow these phrases to repeat in your mind, the memory of them kept alive? How much of your precious time and attention will you let them steal from you?

Stand in your authority! Take charge of what you will allow in your mind! The only way to do this is to counter the bad phrases with positive ones. CHOOSE to say something different. Tell those crap memories your mind keeps giving you (or present verbal vomit) they are no longer permitted to have space in your head! Show them what IS allowed, and repeat it as often as need be. Eventually, those who have planted these bad seeds in your mind will begin to quiet. At some point you will recognize your power.

No one has the right to tell you what your “I AM … ” phrases will be. You are not obligated to believe ANY of them that are given to you! YOU decide what you are made of, what you are capable of, and what you will create in your world. Everything you need is within you, do not doubt it.

The future is yours … 

I AM

Letting Go Is Never Easy

My entire life has been spent listening to people tell me the details of what is wrong with me. It’s like being slapped over and over again, just for being me.

I have listened to people tell me I have no capacity for peace, or truth. I’ve heard them say I lack the necessary skills for this or for that. I’ve had them horde knowledge like it is gold that they refuse to share.

They say if I changed, didn’t say ‘this’ or do ‘that’, then things could be different. There are so many people who think I should be something other that I am.

It is this judgement, this tearing down of a person that is so injurious to the world. We are all guilty of it, if not now, then at some point.

It is difficult to stand tall while being hit with the barrage of negativity. They say they are trying to help me be better, but in reality, they only want me to bend to their will and accept their judgement. To seek their ‘righteous’ teachings and opinions of who I ought to be.

Trying not to let anger or sorrow cloud my vision and truth, I say so-long, adios. I am glad they find peace in this behavior. They can maintain it … away from me.

Killing Ourselves

Do you know how close we are? Have you an understanding of how serious the situation is? We’d better make serious changes, starting NOW.

“Humans have in the space of a few centuries swung a wrecking ball through the Earth’s biosphere … If we regard the Earth as nothing more than a source of resources and a sink for our pollution, if we value other species only in terms of what they can provide to us, then we we will continue to unpick the fabric of life.”

“Land degradation presents unique and persistence challenges to humanity,” Potts said. “This assessment shows that we are at a crossroads and must take urgent action to combat land degradation and restore degraded land if we want to create a happy and healthy planet for all humanity.”

“The ecology of humanity has been noted as being that of an unprecedented “global superpredator” that regularly preys on the adults of other apex predators and has worldwide effects on food webs. Extinctions of species have occurred on every land mass and ocean, with many famous examples within Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, North and South America, and on smaller islands. Overall, the Holocene extinction can be characterized by the human impact on the environment.”

Fossil Fuels & Lethal UV Radiation

Published April 29, 2018 by tindertender

Burning Fossil Fuels

“The outcome is death, and it’s the end of most life on the planet because we’re so dependent on the burning of fossil fuels. There are no means of reversing the process which is melting the polar ice caps. And very few appear to be prepared to say so …

Our continuing uneconomic growth makes us complicit in a process that is triggering an ecological catastrophe for our children and generations beyond them. They will justifiably sit in judgment on our failure to have prevented its devastating consequences knowing that we chose to look the other way.”

Power Within

Published April 28, 2018 by tindertender

Life is Pure, Life is Clean.

Muddy WaterThis is a reality that has been muddied, just as many rivers on earth have been by oil. The authenticity and flawlessness of this world has been polluted by regulations which people have been ordered to follow.

While corporations pollute and poison everything, people have been led to believe this is something which must be allowed. Simply because those with money say it should be a certain way does not make it so. Some folks buck the system and we’ve seen how they are fined and jailed for non-compliance. Are we truly free if we choose to live a simple unregulated life, yet are forced into a system where everything we do is watched and monitored?

If the men and women on the street with signs suddenly had land and came together in community where they assisted each other with the growth of foods and composting of waste, would they then be regulated also, perhaps evicted from their land? Unfortunately, it has been done, and their lives are controlled just as every other life is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Perchance he for whom this bell tolls may be so ill, as that he knows not it tolls for him; and perchance I may think myself so much better than I am, as that they who are about me, and see my state, may have caused it to toll for me, and I know not that … No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”       ~ John Donne (1572-1631)

Even in the harshest environments there is Life. It can be understood as beautiful, or stark and barren, it depends on ones perspective and what is chosen to be seen of the situation. If one finds them self alone roots are put out seeking nourishment, companionship, joy and beauty. All of the things which can lift us from the darkness is sought if not too immersed in the reality that darkness exists. At some point a realization will come that its opposite does as well, just as everything has an opposite in this world, and once this truth is seen it can be sought, with knowledge that it is there. Often it is in solitude beauty of surroundings is seen, perhaps missed due to commotion from the outer world.

chose-to-changeEvery day when we open our eyes there is a new opportunity for creation. If one finds they are tired of same ol’ same ol’, this is the time to make different choices. Small steps toward change may seem insignificant, and most times these are the steps we are able to make … not giant leaps and bounds. If discouragement is prohibited from implanting in the mind, and baby steps are continued through every day, it is probable that when one looks back on the experience they will see the significance of every single step, and find an ability to be grateful for each one of them.

Natures seasons

The seasons of the world show us that life is experienced in cycles. All life ebbs and flows, just like the ocean. We may prefer life’s Spring over life’s Winter, however we will experience all of the seasons … just as the tree grows larger and stronger with each season, so will we if we choose to find the nourishment each season offers. Some seasons require somewhat of a hibernation, and others allow massive growth.

The particulars we add to this world through our experiences build the future for generations to come, whether you’ve had children or not. Every action creates a ripple affect, they touch others lives, and those lives touch other lives, and so on. Directly, or indirectly, every choice made creates the world reality for many others.

Ancestors in my bloodOur ancestors are alive within the veins of our body. Generations of memories are carried there and contribute to this day. Connection to life never ends, it is the power of choice which determines the outcome. All of us have been given this gift.

From the tender ages of life we have been instructed that we are to stay within the lines, only allowed to go as far as we are told, and punished if we disobey. This idea that we do not have power has been indoctrinated into the masses, and so we do as instructed … buy this, eat that, drink from here, follow this plan … believe what you are told and do not ask questions, just follow directions.

It can be seen that this idea of “Do as I say and not as I do” is failing the system which it has created around us. Oh you rebellious humans, I love you.

Truth Sits At The Edge Of Illusion

Published April 24, 2018 by tindertender

Truth or Illusion
The truth has been withheld for so long. Even now, my consciousness struggles to release, yet to also hold on. Standing on the edge it was clear that no title or descriptive words could possibly do justice to what life truly is.

I had asked that no title be put on my business card, for it was apparent that titles are limiting in nature. There are some who would say that the ‘title’ makes the man (or woman) … but we are more than that … so much more.

Even with this knowledge, it can be difficult in this world. The person who had lived this life for so long fought long and hard to come back into the comfortable little reality it had always known. But there has been a change.

If there were a way to get to where I was without the discomfort, I would. Fifteen years … a long time it seems, yet just a drop in the bucket.

Does the land of time seem as bewildering to those not of it, as the land of no time seems to me? Fifteen years have passed, yet they speak as though it is still the same day … the same day that it started out as, in which great change occurred.

Loved ones passed … do they know now that I was not fooling when I tried to tell them of it? And those I did not bother bringing it up to, are they now more open minded, more aware?

We are here for a reason, it is not to “survive” … it is to create change … positive change.

Many are lost in the midst of illusion, skimming the surface from day to day, never leaving the shallow end of the ‘pool’. There are others who jump in the deep end thinking it fun, and still others who are thrown into the deep end, forced to learn to swim. This analogy is perfect, for life is exactly like that. Sometimes the mind gets cracked wide open by an experience, it can be quite frightening, even cause death, but many learn to swim and find they are strong enough to come back to the surface, forever changed.

Yes, I am still here. And so are you. There are better ways to do things that will not harm all life as we’ve been apt to do … If we will just listen to each other, assist each other, and embrace the gifts we came to share with each other. Do any of us have all the answers? Of course not, so let us not act as though we do, and instead honor each other for what we bring to the table.

For the betterment of the whole … for life … for each other, and all beings who live with us in this great world.

 

Choice ~ Outlawed and Enforced

Published April 21, 2018 by tindertender

The natural product of Hemp has been stigmatized and people during the last century have been led to believe that this beneficial plant is poison … all the while governments and corporations have allowed the systematic toxifying of Americans.

Hemp ~ it was outlawed in the 1930’s. In order to gain employment you must be tested for the use of this product, which stores in bodies fat cells for about 30 days. Testing positive does no mean a person uses while on the job, yet the use of it can inhibit a person from gaining employment, which is needed to care for self and family.

People were ‘forced’ to take pharmaceuticals for ailments, which this simple plant could help them with, but their livelihoods are threatened if they choose to utilize this plants benefits instead of Pharma products.

Life and our choices are limited and controlled by those who wish to profit off of our life, and our ill health, which is fostered by things such as fluoride, and BPA, and all kinds of chemicals in prepacked food and drinks.
