You Deserve Better

Published May 11, 2018 by tindertender

Fear is bred in the hearts and minds of people. Lack is fostered in countries world over. Humanity spends much time trying to escape their reality, to find something more pleasurable, sustainable … over there. We are led to believe we cannot change a bad situation, when the truth is, we are the only ones who can. Step out of the cloud.

You did not come into this life to play small. You are deserving of the same which the wealthy man has. Your goods and wages have been stolen your whole life, you’ve been taught this is the way it must be for the good of the country, for the good of the people.

The only thing that is good for the people is for you to recognize your value, to claim your birthright, to rest in your power and ability to facilitate change. You do not have to run, or hide, or shrink yourself. Indeed the world will only benefit by your expansion.

Dig in those heels of yours. Make adjustments right where you are. Claim your space. This is your life and you are not meant to bow to any man, you are meant to stand tall in your own right. Hard work, persistence, creativity and goals for strengthening the whole is key, climb out of the tiny box and see a bigger picture. The world will only benefit should we work together to rise, in cooperation with each other, as a unit.

Greed must be stopped and enough must be distributed. The community needs your aid, the earth needs your care. Not over there … but right where you are. The scattered forces must be stabilized, the scurrying about needs an end. The honorable which resides in you demands it, for without it, the world dies.

It’s Not Meant To Be Easy

Great transformation is upon us. The entire world is heaving with change. This shift can be quite painful and cause tremendous pain and suffering. Through all of it remember:

Throw-a-pebble-in-theWhile healthy anger can fuel wise action, rage rarely does. There is a big difference between expressing healthy anger and expressing the uncontrolled negative energy of rage; it is worth knowing your triggers and seeking help if you do regularly escalate into rage.

Hope is a life-changing emotion. Without it, people literally die. It is important, though, to understand that hope requires some action. It is said that a wish  sent from a place of nondeservedness or ill feeling will sink early and not be granted. It is important not just to hope for a change but to hope from a place of good intentions and to act.

If strong, healthy self-esteem tips over into arrogance it is not true balance. In todays world it is not surprising that many people believe self-esteem and self value come from the outside in, from the admiration of others. Take the admiring people away, and if there is no solid core of self-worth, there is little left.

As difficult as it sometimes is, as horrible as the deep pit of despair feels when it builds in the stomach, you must breathe through it, allow it to loosen through the breath … it will dissipate after a time and forward movement will once more be possible.

Living is not easy, it is meant to challenge you, to allow opportunity for you to build strength though endurance and creativity, to hone the ability to solve problematic situations. Action must be taken with eyes and mind set on positive outcomes, change which benefits all life. With focus, combined with determined action and solid faith in the desired outcome, with unwavering belief that it will be … it will be.

Focusing on personal spaces shrinks the ‘box’ you have to work in. Opening to others, to the well-being of the whole, will eventually destroy the little box you’ve been living in. Strengths others possess, skills which they have mastered will combine with your own. An immovable force will be created. Together massive change can become reality very quickly.

You’re growing into your power, it many indeed be painful … just as the bones stretch when the body ages through youth. Know this, when all is said and done, you will be quite satisfied with the result.

Hidden Messages Of Mind

Published March 14, 2018 by tindertender

subconsciousIt never ceases to amaze me how my defenses stir, even when there is really no reason for it. First defense, then embarrassment and a desire to close the self down to certain situations. As I notice these energies in my mind and body  I find that there is a shift, quickly from one to the other, even to something like shame … which is weird.

When intention to share stems from a beautiful and loving space of the heart and finds itself faced with different formats … I hesitate to call it rules and regulations … but different structures, a feeling of not belonging, of being out of place, of separateness arises, even when the differences are subtle.

Here I thought I was doing quite well, yet this experience teaches me that in order to move forward I must allow myself to be exposed, and be open to learning new things without judgement. It is true, we are our own worst critic (although some would deny this). I am happy these emotions have shown themselves, for this allows me to further my personal work.

Remaining open can be quite difficult when the instinct is to shut down, turn tail and run. It is really a very interesting thing that is happening in my mind, so I’ll observe it and work with it and see where it leads.

Dawn Of A New Day

light-shining-dark-abstract-background-37706186Light shines in a darkened room, with it comes soft sounds of music. A hum sounds out as water is purified. My mind slips into forested trails where birds sing and critters roam.

Love longed for, near, yet far. A wall of glass, and invisible barrier, separates two … and more. An ache makes itself known, not sharing cause.

Direction for today is yet to be determined, choices presented are many. Massage sounds nice and so does a mineral bath, but what tugs at my heart strings is a stroll through the forest. This is where I will begin.

Nuance and Fine Lines

Published December 28, 2017 by tindertender

I met a friend, she and I traveled together. We were being followed by a group of males. Our vehicle, which was a small bus, stopped working. We found ourselves walking and did our best to duck in and out of places so as not to be seen. Danger lurked around every corner, behind every bush, it seemed most people were out to take what they wanted, to do what they pleased, regardless of how it affected anyone else.

I found myself in a cafe, alone, although there were other patrons. A man sat at the table in front of me, a military man. He was young, sipping his drink. I left the building for a moment, thinking it would be safe to leave by hand bag. Upon return, this man pointed out that I must have ‘dropped’ my bag before leaving, it was found on the floor, under the table, most of the money had been removed. I studied the face of this young man, and I told him that I hadn’t dropped it at all, and it was my belief he had removed the funds, and I wanted them returned. He agreed and returned them, stating I could not have proven it. I pointed to the server and mentioned the cameras in the facility and how it was possible to view the footage. The server smiled and nodded yes, it could have gone this way.

Meeting up with my traveling companion, we found a huge house and decided to walk into the entry which was open and led to a wide open space. There were doors which led into glass walled rooms, carpeted with light shag, cozy. Another female saw me and made it clear we were not permitted to be there, I left.

Am I also one who does what I choose, walking into places without permission, not considering anothers wishes? Or do I search for someone so that I might ask for permission, seeking refuge from a dangerous, outer world?

It is said that what we see, is simply a reflection of who we are. Although this may be true, (since we have ALL within us), many people put forth great effort to do the right thing, to steer clear of that which takes advantage of, or intrudes upon another.

We may consider doing something which we see, and know is not acceptable, it is our actions which tell the truth of who we are. While there are those who seem to do the right thing on the surface, it is what happens behind closed doors which tell the truth of who they are. Mimickers of good are not able to fake it all the time. Those who do good will confess to a wavering mind, humbled, perhaps even with a little shame, always the first to tell on themselves. This gives ample opportunity for the faker to beat them up and spew vile rumors, attempting to darken the purity of these ones, yet they only show the true color of their own heart.

It is in the nuances, very fine lines, easy to deceive those who are not listening and watching. “Observance” is a good habit to get into. Sit on a bench for awhile, and see. No need to speak, for there will be plenty of that going on already.

Endless Possibilities

Published December 26, 2017 by tindertender

Infinity

A good, healthy life.
To be alone, yet not.
Developing skills dormant within,
Improving self.

My wish for others and for me.
Opportunity to gain what is needed,
To advance in perceptible ways.
Supported by loving family.

Seen, unseen …
Disrupted only for benefit.
Forgiving heart, fortified,
Nurtured.

Bigger picture to see.
Broadening imagination,
Attempt made to release
Implanted barriers.

Knocking down walls,
Assuming no limits.
Possibilities … endless,
Open mind.

A Free Ride

Published November 9, 2017 by tindertender

That’s what they’re after. That is what they have been taking advantage of all of these years … riding upon the backs of people who are full of integrity and care, who allow them to piggy back simply due to the compassion which resides in their hearts. There is a time though, when the load must be lightened. Constantly giving to those who consume, who take relentlessly, is no longer an option.

If you are one who has been the caregiver of an energetic vampire(s), you know full well what I am saying. Too long you have given, given so much that you have depleted your reserves, to the point where little remains for yourself.

They disrespect you as you allow them to walk upon your spirit, your soul. They laugh and tell themselves how smart they are, getting you to behave as they wish you to. But you see now … you see more clearly than you may have ever seen. You also recognize that self care is not selfish, regardless of what the takers want you to believe. You know that what they say is not your personal story.

You understand that the ending of a cycle is coming to a close, rapidly. You sense that the beginning of an era is upon you … upon all of us in the world. With eyes and mind wide open, you see the changes occurring in the masses, you relate to them, for these changes are also occurring in you.

Giving a free ride to those who choose not to work toward wholeness, preferring to be leeches of the world, does no one any good. The world needs you to rise, to shine like the magnificent spark of life you are. Take off the tether, walk your journey as it is meant to be walked. Give yourself permission to be free.

Personal Permission
