If Madness Feeds On Anything, Let Madness Feed On Joy

Published September 25, 2017 by tindertender

There is a manipulator behind the scenes, influencing humanity to inflict pain, suffering, and fear upon each other. I look around me, and I realize what I see is a reflection of that madness. They are not powerful, they are not strong, they are not brave … for if they were, they would admit error and work toward changing their own hearts. No … they choose to cause suffering and then they feed off of the pain and fear that results from it.

I thought it necessary to starve the madman and those with him, however, upon further pondering, I realize their diet simply needs to change. Instead of feeding on suffering and fear, they ought be made to swallow joy and calm, care and compassion, Love over hate.

When we recognize that we are under this influence, we can then begin to alter our own consciousness, cultivating joy within our own hearts and minds and lives. It need not be seen or agreed with by others, only known to us. When we stop hurting ourselves and others, when we instead paint, or dance, or walk in the forest, or create in any way … whatever it is that lets us visualize and then feel the joy over our accomplishments, we then recognize the sovereignty within, and we are closer to our true selves.

Let us work toward cultivating peace in our hearts, forgiveness of self and for others. This is what will eradicate the madman.

Joy occurs, self realized power of creation comes into our awareness. The manipulator is left with that … and it is this which will strip him, and those with him, of their power over this world.

War on this and war on that is not the answer, it only creates more pain, more suffering, more fear and hatred. This is what they want, this is what strips us of our power and makes us as ‘food’ for the manipulator.

Sovereignty-is-True-Equality
Let us claim our sovereignty, let us come into the awareness that permission is not needed to stand in glory … not greed, or power of possessions and a controlling authority … but true authority over our own lives. No man … indeed no entity, has the right to strip us of what belongs to us … our inner power, our ability to create calm within the storm.

I am a sovereign being who has authority over this life. I see you, and I have shown you how it is done. It is possible to walk in madness, and then walk straight out of it, coming back, consciously, choosing joy, compassion and care. You have been fired, the job you’ve been employed at for so long has now ended. No longer will you be rewarded for any work done there. You have a new task, one in which your only payment will be sovereign truth, care and compassion. Your diet has been changed. No longer will you feed on fear and pain. NO. Now you will experience wonderment, innocent love and glee. You will nurture this in your own self. You will do this, or you will go hungry. You will starve. You will cease to be. The Cycle. Ends. Here. Now.

O Sole Mio ~ What A Wonderful Thing

Neapolitan Italian Text
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole,
n’aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe’ ll’aria fresca pare già na festa…
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole.

Ma n’atu sole
cchiù bello, oje ne’.
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
O sole
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

Quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne,
me vene quase ‘na malincunia;
sotto ‘a fenesta toia restarria
quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne.

Ma n’atu sole
cchiù bello, oje ne’.
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
O sole
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

English Translation
What a wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
What a wonderful thing a sunny day.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
I’d stay below your window
When night comes and the sun has gone down.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

 

Rise ~ You Are Shining

Published September 12, 2017 by tindertender

Lady and river viewTime … people have kicked my ass throughout these last 50 years. I have been utterly broken, spiritually, physically I’ve been beaten, years went by, events brought me to a healing place … the forest. The forest, and communion with that which dwells there, eased my soul ~ as a young girl and teen, and time and again as I aged. It burns now, it is cleansing.

Know thy enemy well.

As you experience life, perhaps you have had similar occurrences which have broken your spirit, think on the many times you bounced back, overcome that which hurt you. Go very deep within your intuition, you will find there a knowing that those who harmed you are only being puppeted … asleep, they do not know that what they do is harmful … yet. Forgive them, it will be difficult, one of the hardest things you will do. However you do not deserve to be walking around with anger and a hatred of the evil in this world, you deserve joy, claim it.

Bird and sunsetUnwrap the claws of darkness from your heart, and claim the light of love, which has always been yours for the claiming. The ones who have harmed you will know some day, they will feel remorse, and while there is still time, they too will need cleansed … just as we, just as the forest, just as the cities and ocean.

Behind the scenes is the true enemy, unseen, maybe even unheard, consciously. Yet they are those who you are dealing with intimately … pay attention, for this battle is getting intense. The awareness you gain by experiencing this pain and sorrow is leaving within you a sure knowledge that is crucial. Learn from it, and while you do, practice maintaining that loving heart you came here with, do not let darkness destroy it.

You are more powerful than you know.

Life is dependent on your ability to overcome these hurdles. All life … the ocean life, that which lives in the air, the forest life, domestic animals, as well as humans. Rise ~ you are the shining one.

Ramblings of a Madman

Published September 8, 2017 by tindertender

I recently read a small book titled “The Book of the Law”. It was a little crazy and the scribe wrote these ramblings as the speaker raved on about this and that, stating one contradiction after the other. At the end it was written one should burn the book after reading it. Well, I do not burn books, however I did write on a piece of paper Ramblings of a Madman and put it in the middle of the book.

There are sects which try very hard to make sense of these types of ramblings, they pour their energies into trying to follow them. Nasty and corrupt things can occur when energy is given to madness. It is wise to listen instead to the center of ones beingness, and trust in what they find there, uninfluenced by another human.

Power Within
Divinity dwells within, and when we try to look outside ourselves we often do find just that … madness. When we grow it, it gets stronger. The key to diminishing it, is to go within, in silence, and listen … not for the audible word, but for the knowing that comes from true communion. Sometimes it is difficult to know when we are in communion, until we look back, and begin to count the blessings which have been bestowed on us.

Trusting that the Universe has our back, even when we are in the midst of failure, is key. Only good will come from every single deed, sometimes, impossible to see until later. Those who have left us, have gifted us with eye opening awareness. While here, they may not have known that in their core they came to do just that. Yet because of them, of their sacrifice, our eyes open more each day.

Release the anger that might be harboring in the mind and heart. Recognize the gifts, and move forward in forgiveness, compassion, and love … love for self as well … knowing that as deep as one travels in the darkness, we may also go just as far into the light … if we choose it.

Bagby Hot Springs ~ Hike & Bath

Published September 2, 2017 by tindertender

Today’s adventure on a hot day was incredible! I hiked 1.5 miles in, and 1.5 miles out, taking my time and enjoying every detail my little eyes could catch glimpse of. I ate my orange for lunch while lounging right on the creek.

 

The forest is an amazing, living body. The smells were rich with berries although I could not see them. There were many little chipmunks. While I soaked in my tub, a little one came and helped itself to the remaining portion of my banana. Such a beautiful animal.

 

Today, it seemed I was held in the embrace of everything that lives here, much like the stones were held in the embrace of the root structure of this ‘once upon a time’ tall and majestic tree. Other people on the trail were friendly, a spark was in each of them that shone and brought comfort, I felt I was among friends.

With all that is going on in this world, it should be apparent that there is a significant lack of connection. Connection with nature, connection with each other, connection to our foods and water. These things need our connection as much as we need the connection with all of them.

Taking time away from the steady stream of pre-programmed items for sale is the only way to health and well-being, for ourselves, and for the world.

The Time Is Near

There is a seemingly long road ahead, yet when traveled quickly it will not take much time. If a smile is remembered, and worn through all experiences, the journey will seem to be pleasant even while handling the most difficult situations.

What you’ve been waiting for is ever near. Remain in hope and faith that goodness will prevail … it will, and you’ll be glad you did. Continue strengthening that which brings joy to your heart, and create the same for others, you will see the change before your very eyes.
