More Than Words

Published August 20, 2018 by tindertender

Often we say ‘friend’ and perhaps even mean it when we speak the ‘words’. Yet actions will always speak the truth … whether we respect another, and allow them to partake in decisions about the whole of an experience.

No one is ‘in charge’ … the minute they believe they are, it takes away from the freedoms of others and strips them of their authority to have a say in the day. They will resent this, especially if they are head strong, powerful people.

Although we may try to ‘get along’, if our strengths are continually stepped upon by someone who may ‘feel responsible’ for the experience, whatever it may be, it is no longer a cooperative experience, it is a form of dictatorship, and cannot last, for the other will always struggle against those who long to lead them.

So while we wish to give a positive memory to someone by dragging them here and there, dragging anyone, anywhere, will never be positive. It is in ‘sharing’ the way, the journey, which makes it pleasant and mutually enjoyable.

And all the while, both parties attempt to love … 

When ego, and need to lead, get in the way, sharing and caring are sort of tossed aside. And while it is believed we are doing our best for another, it is important to stop and ask of our self, am I stepping on their toes? Am I allowing them to have the freedom to move through this experience without strings? Am I sharing … or am I dictating this whole scenario?

Are we sharing an experience? Or slipping into Alpha mode?

While we work this out, let us have patience with each other. We are all doing our best to get to the heart of love, and we will make mistakes along the way. Let us forgive and forget, moving forward, ever forward and upward to the point of harmony, where bliss lives. May we all make it there in one piece, able to say, still … we are friends.

Excerpt from the “Invocation of Osiris”

“I am He who is clothed with the body of flesh yet in whom flames the spirit of the eternal Gods. I am the Lord of Life. I am triumphant over Death, and whosoever partaketh with me shall with me arise. I am the manifester in Matter of Those whose abode is the Invisible. I am the purified. I stand upon the Universe. I am it’s Reconciler with the eternal Gods. I am the Perfector of Matter, and without me the Universe is not.”

DIY Shampoo Bar

Published June 14, 2018 by tindertender

Eliminating plastics from the household is turning out to be quite the challenge! Torn between tossing everything and replacing with Corning-ware or stainless steel or wood, I keep what I have for now. I worry about it winding up in the ocean, or land fill to stay for centuries.

I’ve been distilling my water for two years now. I do whatever I can to buy things in glass, and I am working on making reusable grocery bags the new norm. While shopping I try to avoid the things in plastic, but it is everywhere!! Poison galore … bamboo tooth brushes and bamboo toilet paper are handy dandy items I’ve adopted into the home.

Recently I have decided to start making my own shampoo bars. I wish to eliminate the plastic bottles shampoo and conditioner come in from my household, and so I will. Below is a recipe I came across. I await the ingredients I’ve ordered and when they arrive I will get busy and teach myself the art of making good soap.

For my first batch I thank:

I am excited to try this recipe and be on my way to further disentanglement of that which is so destructive and disruptive of cellular function.

Ingredients needed to make DIY Shampoo Bar:

1 Unrefined Coconut Oil – 8 oz.

2 Olive Oil – 3.2 oz.

3 Castor Oil – 2.24 oz.

4 Sunflower Oil – 1.28 oz.

5 Raw Unrefined Cocoa Butter – 1.28 oz.

6 Food Grade Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) – 2.2 oz.

7 Coconut Milk or Distilled Water – 2.6 oz.

8 (optional) Avocado – 1.25 oz.

9 (optional) Rhassoul Clay – 1 tablespoon.

10 (optional) Apple Cider Vinegar – 0.5 oz.

11 Soap Mold.

There are so many talented and creative people in this world! To them I give a huge Thank You!” for sharing your recipes, ideas, and expertise. In deep gratitude I accept the blessing of your shared knowledge as I work to break ‘recent tradition’ (of the last century) and move deep into the heart of lore, improving on present circumstance.

Old wives tales and skills which continue from way back when … I welcome you into my world.

Journey To Wholeness

Published March 28, 2018 by tindertender

Everyone wishes to be heard, even the quiet ones. Various circumstances in life will contribute to how well one is able to exert themselves in speaking up. There may be doubt as to whether what they have to say is significant or not, depending on the responses they receive.

Truth is, all people are on a journey of self discovery, finding balance in the role they play within the universe.

Teamwork

There is an authority which speaks through every … single … person. Some have been on the journey of understanding for 2 years, some for 10 years, and others for 15+ years, and then there are those who have been on the path even longer. Still, this authority is within each of them, with varying levels of knowledge wishing to be shared with others who may have no other way of hearing but through the mouth of another human, and the ear they were born with.

I ask, is there truly such a thing as oneness? Or is this just an explanation which is used to get people to relinquish their personality traits as insignificant? Sometimes this is how it is read, and perhaps it is only in the presentation of the topic.

There are some who feel powerless. Life throws them topsy turvy every which way. Instantly they may wonder what they did to deserve this treatment which may cause them pain. Empowerment … this is where a good teacher will build on the confidence of people.

There are indeed many old patterns which must be stripped away in order to make room for more positive, stronger perspectives. There is a way to do this without talking down to a person though. It’s a slippery slope, this teaching without stripping one of personal significance.

Sharing ideasThe beauty in sharing of knowledge is in the allowing, of letting the example presented be adapted as seen fit by the individual … as much as, or as little as, they are comfortable with at the time. All good ideas are best when they seem as if they are our own.

When people come together with the common understanding that power meshes … the power in you, the power in me, that power becomes we, created by the bits of you and me and others … all of the traits that one may have great strength in, while another individual has great strength in another area of life … shared between us the whole becomes very strong, much stronger that were we to remain alone.

So … some call it Oneness, some call it Unity, some call it The Whole … I prefer the latter for it speaks to me of every individual with their varying strengths brought together in conscious cooperation for the benefit of all.

Every person is in their own space of the journey. All are doing what is necessary for their growth at the moment, even if it is not obvious to the outsider looking in. Sharing information, not as an authority (for none of us are) helps to lift each other, should a rising be chosen. Perhaps something I share makes you go AH HA!!! and perhaps something you share with me makes me do the same.

Wonderful exchanges such as these will send us all on an upward spiral as we fling the old out and away, and embrace the new which gives us wings (so to speak).

Time To Heal

Published February 13, 2018 by tindertender

Divinity, in my mind, is about respect, compassion and honor. It doesn’t force itself on anyone. Instead, it sits back and allows people to live their lives as they wish, waiting for the time when they will be in a position to kick back and dwell in the afterlife of their choosing, the world they create.

Become awareUnfortunately, there are many who live in a constant state of chaos and ill will. They spin hurt and harm wherever they go, in all of its forms. This is the world many create, and when the body quits them, they will do everything they can to escape their fate. This includes butting in on other humans lives, trying to find an escape route into something more pleasant.

This could be why so many are behaving in such a brash manner, being completely selfish, for they are under the influence of these others who have realized too late their error.

Humanity is equipped with a will so strong it can overcome all obstacles, ALL of them, yet they often choose to be embraced, and then to return the embrace, of ill will. This is no excuse for bad behavior.

The bulk of energy spent in life should be given to self, as one fortifies their own mind in ability to withstand these attacks, and come back to center, stronger than before. There’s a difference between caring for self, and being selfish.

Anger is a serious issue. I know this is true … personal experience has brought all kinds of it to my mind and life, leaking into the lives of those around me. I also know it is choice which allows the release of it. The human will is strong and determined, whatever it is applied to will be.

The fate of the world really does lie in our hands, in our determination. Pain and anger will cause a person to retaliate, often upon those who had nothing to do with the creation of their pain. Many times, the ones we think cause our pain or anger, have only set our triggers of an underlying issue. Until this is dealt with, all people we deal with will eventually flip a trigger, and we’ll swim in pain and anger. Not only personally, but it will be inflicted into the world, causing the same ol’ same ol’ crap we’ve seen, over and over in its cycle.

Time to heal_1Often it is the pity we have for those suffering which keeps us trapped in scenarios which are hurtful. The fact is, we are the most important factor in our lives. If we do not show sufficient compassion to our self, we will never be able to give proper care to anyone else … truth.

Here is the advice of one … people who suffer anger and pain ought to delve deep inside, find the cause and deal with it, heal it. Those who suffer at the hands of those in pain and anger … walk away, reclaim your energy and do not let it be used to flame the fire of this persons issue. Instead, harness it and use it to heal yourself.

Where attention goes, energy flows.
It’s time to starve out anger and pain.
It’s time to heal.

 

 

Double Edged Sword

Published December 21, 2017 by tindertender

There was a time I wanted to be a Private Investigator, then life took me another way. I left that dream of what a future might look like had it gone differently. In today’s world, those skills are badly needed, for with all of the lies and schemes, it is difficult not to get caught in the trap, the ‘fake news’ is so wide-spread, and to have it spin in the mind, and spill into personal life, is not the most favored thing to experience … it does no good.

old-sword-2-1024x768Some may see that these falsities have been happening for many decades, centuries even ~ generation after generation these fabrications have been passed down. The recognition of it much quicker now given the investigative communication tools we’ve been using.

It is ‘bearing false witness’ which creates so much misery in life. I am as guilty as anyone who finds their thought in a web. When something is seen, promoting shock, one wishes to DO something, anything, to bring light to it, to end it. Unfortunately these are twisted methods created by twisted minds to spin pain and defense into the world. It’s working, it’s been working for a very long time.

So what now? Now that we see it, now that we know. On one hand a careful consideration is given, a pulling back, a not wanting to be misled, or to mislead. Yet, there is the question of ‘what if’ it is true? Shouldn’t everyone now about it? Shouldn’t it be pushed into the open for all to see?

Oh, this double edged sword is difficult to bear.
Is there anyone who is able to wield it properly?
