Freedom of Expression ~ Gained

Published September 7, 2018 by tindertender

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.

Embrace The Earth, Moon, and Stars

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?

Emergence Into The Next Phase

Here we are, living together in this world. Seen and unseen meshing.

Purifying the mind, body, and spirit takes effort. It is the task put before you. What prominent belief about yourself do you carry that inhibits you from being fully engaged in life, from showing up 100% of the time? Purify your heart by allowing yourself to breathe in and out blessings and forgiveness so that you can love more deeply.

Let yourself feel your grief – truly feel it – so that the rivers of your tears help cleanse the wounds in your soul.

Detoxify your body (the temple, and seat of the soul) by changing your diet, doing a cleanse, or simply drinking more water. Increasing the amount of water you drink, with appreciation for its purpose, will revitalize your spirit.

Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conscious awareness will show up somewhere and somehow. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reason, yet they remain contained by shame and guilt. Sometimes these submerged aspects of self are projected onto others so that they mirror the suppressed parts of you, and you may even harshly judge these characteristics when you see them.

Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. Whatever you have submerged deep inside of you, this is your opportunity to pay attention and welcome them to the family called “you”.

It is time for you to go on a vision quest. Spend a few hours or days in nature, in solitude praying or meditating. Wherever you go, take your question, concern, or challenge with you, allow it to float around in your consciousness, and watch what shows up.

You are in an intense process of emergence into the next cycle of your life. This shift is one of broadened and heightened perceptual capacities … surrender to the flow, allow yourself to move in to the next cycle of your life.

Beyond Appearances

Published July 8, 2018 by tindertender

(You’ll notice the wrinkled shirt. I’ve given you something to judge, are you able to get beyond the need to do so.)

It is not in the appearance of a person which determines their value … but what comes out of them.

Push aside the need for judgement and let be what is meant to be.

Freedom does not come from war … no matter how many generations this message will be pawned off on as truth.

Freedom ~ Peace ~ Joy ~ comes from the power each individual holds within them, through the word, through intention, through conscious and aware utilization of the depths of honor which resides in the deepest aspects of person-hood.

If sects attempt to convince you war is the only way to get to peace, you must come to your own conclusions about your belief in this, no one can do it for you. However I am certain that deep within you, you know already of its falsity.

The power of your word, of your vibration, is the creator tool which made this world possible … ALL humans have this within them.

Claim it, own it, utilize it to change the pain.
Be the alchemist you came here to be.
