Made In The Image Of ‘Them’

Published November 28, 2018 by tindertender

The story that has been given to humanity about themselves begins by saying they were made in the image of them, the ‘Gods’. It then leads the reader into the theory that there is but one god. We are a walking oxy-moron, in a world of polar opposites.

You tell me I must. I tell you that you are not allowed to order me. You say you like me, I tell you that you are not permitted to go there. I rebel. You order me, I order you … difference being you don’t seem to acknowledge me.

I laugh because we are all sounding a bit crazy, how can we not, given the bounce within duality. Our consciousness is continuously pulled left, then right, for life with few reprieves. Observation, testing of limits, discussion, interruption, good, bad, free, caged, hungry, full, cold, hot.

This is NOT how any of this was supposed to be.

IF it comes down to minds of life being attacked, may a HUGE boulder drop upon the attackers, may it permeate the essence of their being, all of them who have ever perpetrated injury on this earth and the life it holds. May this boulder then crumble into dust, falling to the ground becoming the soil upon which humanity and all other forms of life walk upon for the remainder of days.

Morbid? Maybe, but no more so than what we see in the world today … and I meant every word of it. Perhaps in this, I would seal my fate.

Should the time come when I am no longer able to type, or speak … should there come a time where I am personally attacked, I will focus on the visual of this boulder and I will create it strongly in my mind. If my body should quit me during this time, this is the visual, the creation I will take with me into the unseen … and I hope it manifests into the seen.

I see men, naked, sitting on the snow in circle. They are wrapped in a thin, white, wet sheet, it is dark and their sheets are steaming. The energy, the focus they put into creating warmth from within is the focus I will put into practice at this time should it arise.

Distraction happens every moment of every day. Whether it comes from outside, or from inside, makes no difference. This is a play for the mind of mankind.

Why are you looking at me like that?

This life experiment has gone rogue, yet no one notices … almost no one. Seen, unseen, wet, dry, known, unknown, quiet, noisy … render my mind in two. Oh wait … it already is, HA! Duality is everywhere!

I wonder if it is you they hear while you pretend to be dead people … relatives or friends, sending ‘messages’. Some think you are God and upon instruction harm themselves or others … they cannot seem to break free of the hooks you give their mind.

I could have chosen to play meek, to be small, but instead I have lived loudly. In fact, I have lived so loudly I attracted the presence of those who can’t be seen, by me anyway … and now they cannot seem to stop talking ‘about me’. Who knew being popular would be so annoying.

All right there buddy. Can you breathe?

How is it that the bad guys always seems to win, while the good guys die in their wars?

Making dust … that’s why I’m here. Same yet changed. This is the last time.

Have you become desensitized? Have you been told you have attitude? Have you asked, “What attitude”? I suppose that anyone who perceives people as ‘not doing what they wish them to’ would describe the rebels as those with ‘attitude’ … I hope you are blessed with this dilemma. It means you have not yet been converted.

So many people in this life have said, “It’s not all about you”, but have been proven wrong. The entire Universe does indeed revolve around each individual from the point at which they are.

The human brain, from day one, hears words. The words that are heard most frequently become the adult vocabulary … like an ‘organic’ computer.

Blessed … why do you doubt?

432: Cohesion is mentioned by number 432. This is the act of standing together against adversity … Let everyone put their differences aside … if we want to create a system that works then unity is inevitable.

Breaching The Ordinary

Breaking free from the ordinary, even if only for a brief moment, we experience an intense feeling of relief and can let go of any previously held fears and assumptions of what would happen if we did overcome the ‘barrier’, whether its material, emotional, or mental. Simply getting away from the trance of technology for a few hours and spending that time in Nature is a breach of the trappings of civilization that can suffocate us and prevent us from connecting to the Earth.

It is time to take a break! Make it a point to get outside. Have you become attached to your surroundings, making an illusion of safety? Remember, it is not these ‘things’ that make you feel safe, it is the familiarity you have imbued in your surroundings which have generated this false sense of security. Take time away from the familiar, it is literally about changing your external environment in a significant way. Break through the barrier of belief that has constricted you in any way, shift thought patterns and watch as doors open to different worlds and perspectives.

Open your mind and senses to information as it is presented to you; through your eyes, ears, physical sensations, and detached thoughts. Follow any ‘gut feelings’ that tell you to be wary, pay close attention to important opportunities having potential to enhance your life, and the lives of others. Assess what is emanating from your body, and then sort out any conditioned responses from what is purely instinctual. Detach, take a break, and stand tall.

There is ‘power’ all around us. It is in every expression of Nature, yet there isn’t a more dramatic display of this power than lightning. It electrifies and splits the atmosphere. We naturally seek shelter from the storm. It is a reminder that we are not in control of the natural world.

The power of Life is neutral, neither inherently good or bad. It is how you utilize it that will determine whether it is harmful or life giving, in alignment with the will of Spirit that pulses through you. Be aware of your intention, your values, and your willingness to act on them. Pay close attention to Spirits prompting. This Divine Power that is the very force driving the Universe will make the necessary choices clear.

I was fortunate to hear Don Jose Ruiz speak in person last night. I am grateful that he is traveling, sharing portions of his story and the wisdom gained through these experiences.

Being our authentic self in full view of others can be a challenge, for in doing so it requires that we shed all the ‘stories’ we have created to justify certain behaviors. It requires that we do so in order to share our most personal selves.

Walking into the fear of judgement from others is not easy, nor is it easy to withstand when it arrives, which it inevitably will. Do it anyway, free yourself, LIVE.

Choice

Published August 14, 2018 by tindertender

My arms swell with an energy that feels ‘stuck’. I stretch them up over my head, slowly lowering them. There is a release from the hands, it seems as though for a moment they disappear.

I listen to the above tune, sitting quietly. I think on the word ‘beautiful’. It is one of my most favorite words. B-e-a-u-tiful … It describes what we see, smell, taste and feel. So many things are beautiful. I long to see these things and acknowledge them in the world, for if the world truly is a reflection of me, then I long to see beauty in me as well … and so I search for it, I cultivate it in my thoughts and actions, I grow a garden chuck full of it, consciously, purposefully, intentionally.

A peaceful world IS possible. It simply needs to be fostered in the minds of humanity from birth, rather than what we’ve been doing … fostering fight or flight, dominate or be dominated, use or be used. Honesty and integrity must come before immoral, lust filled behaviors, surrounding sex and/or greed of any kind. Goals that include dominance of anyone or anything should never be developed … and will topple.

Look around, remember your own self as an innocent child … before pain was introduced as abuse or neglect. It is real, it was only stripped, and replaced by something else less savory.

School … training … it’s all a farce. It is meant to proliferate more of the same. A total revamp needs be. If people do not find within themselves capacity to flip this around, to reform what they’ve been programmed with and choose another way … it will have to be done for them. Of course, this is a last resort, much better for free will to come in and make these decisions consciously, wholly.

One way or another, these destructive ways will come to an end and life will try again.

Is the choice to be a willing participant in the creation of beauty and grace, or is the choice a flat refusal of releasing that which destroys?

Live by the sword, die by the sword …
Promote hate and fear, die with hate and fear …
Insist on chaos, live with chaos at the end of time …

Loveit wins.
Be a partner to it, or not.
The choice is yours.

 

Thank You ~ I Am

Having developed my body, taken charge of my thoughts, and risen above the struggle of life, I am in command. My Will is my power, my Shield is positive thought. I hold steady against that which opposes me. My target is God-realization, not revenge.

I am filled with Light. I am burning with the fire of inspiration. I am strong enough now to overcome anger by corrective action. I am strong enough now to overcome confusion by illuminating my mind. I am strong enough now to be kind even to those who do not like me. I am strong enough now to forgive. I am powerful. I allow myself to be moved by a greater force.

In groups, in front of others, is never the time to criticize another, but to praise them. In this way, all are lifted up. As we share that which we like and appreciate about each other, our bowls are filled with grace. Let us be thankful for all we have been given as human beings. Let us share our bounty. Let us share our blessings.

My trade may seem humble to many, but every movement of my hand corrects a wrong. I look like your ordinary worker but I am learning a higher trade. I am in the school of sacred studies, Mother Earth my professor, Father Sun my guide.

With love, I entice the inner person into relationship with the outer world. I attract what I wish to become and I radiate what I am. Beauty surrounds me.

Grandmothers, Grandfathers, open your ways to me. I will practice and perfect them in my peaceful place within. Speak to my heart, my soul. Let seeker and wisdom be one. All thanks be to you who have walked before me.

At what point will you stop punishing yourself for anothers lack of empathy? Your actions were valid, your intentions unselfish, your heart pure. If someone else is unwilling to place themselves in your position and attempt to understand the situation from your perspective, they do not have authority to dictate whether or not your actions were valid. Stop pining after them, let them go … and if they are attached to someone you love and influencing their thoughts of the situation, if necessary, you’ll need to let them go as well.

Windless What, Windless What, What Will Be Will Be.

What was shared last night is significant … know that the energies are quite high and intense. If you are not aware of it yet, you soon will be for your body and mind will be rocked with it.

Believe that your hopes are able to be birthed, believe in the ‘magic’ of creation and your part in it … what seems impossible is not, it is completely doable … have faith. A new day is coming. Today … begin the journey right now, do not hesitate. Trust in yourself and your intuition for knowing what, when, how, when and why. Act upon that which is not only for your highest interest, but that of others as well. Proceed Mighty One. Within you is the sun and the moon, the seasons of the sky and the earth, that which grows here of plant matter and all forms of flesh … heed their message, listen to your dreams, pay attention to this merger for in it is capacity for healing. The unfiltered truth will come to you when most still, between wakefulness and sleep, or in sleep itself. Learn to interpret the messages, listen to what they tell you, pay close attention to how they make you feel. Learn who you are, and who you wish to be.

Flying High

Drama can be extremely tiring! I wonder why so many people wish to instill the feeling of inadequacy and insufficiency in others. Could it be they are damaged and must try to tear down the world around them?

Overcoming doubt is not a challenge for the faint of heart. A fierceness must be lived, but in balance with a gentleness which can only be ‘cured’ by the experience of dismay and disappointment.

How does one unbind the self?

Shedding beliefs that have been embedded in the psyche isn’t easy. Words spoken by others play in the mind like an old worn out record, memories fade but never really disappear. For most of us what we hear about ourselves plays over and over, so often, that one day it may be mistaken for an actual personal thought or belief.

From my perspective, the best way to ‘combat’ living memories which spawn emotional charges is to counter them with positive responses, new phrases created by self. I have challenged these memories which have lived in my mind for so long and am pleased to notice clean thoughts of my inner house are multiplying while the ‘others’ fade.

Balance is coming along nicely and I plan on enjoying every minute of it. Of course there are moments which spring up where the emotional energies are a bit amped. But right away, or nearly so, it settles and an even flow remains. Maybe this is the true work of humans in life … Learning to manage the flow of energies while in the densest of forms … for once this form changes, the spigot will be in the ON position, all the time.

Too often humans are willing to embrace and absorb anything negative, however when something of a positive nature crosses the path, it is met by a blockage in the consciousness. Walls are constructed everywhere … in the mind, between countries, in our languages (communication). A great effort must be made to soften and become open and receptive to all things which align with love.

Gifting each other gentleness which requires no return is a natural skill we brought with us when we entered this world. Something dwelling here sets about stripping this purity from the memory, and usually doesn’t take long to set up camp, constructing more of the same destructive mechanisms … planting them in the brain, over-riding the original message we came with.

Living in this environment is not for whimps … and none of us are, for we have prevailed against some very strong forces and are beginning to shine so brightly once again.

Pause, and enjoy this truth as you study your experiences of the last 10 or 20 years and more. Remember, there is always time to take the next step, to grow seeds of peace, to unite with others on similar paths. Sharing wisdom and courage and strength with each other will help everyone involved realize their potential quicker.

Potential … what do you see when you think of that word? Are you envisioning something as big as the world, beneficial for all? Have you learned to see as the eagle does?
