Working Through Tension

Published June 15, 2017 by tindertender

Nothing to do … twiddle thumbs, look around … and eat. Get up from chair, pace the room, repeat.

A new adventure is about to begin. When these moments in life, these opportunities occur, it may feel as though the clock stops, butterflies do their thing in the belly and slight agitation erupts in the mind.


Calming the nerves takes effort and practice. Running at 1000 miles per hour, or 2 ~ it has the same affect. Being so busy one cannot think, and being so stagnant that is all one has to do, has the same unsettling outcome … both require an effort of stilling the mind.

With eyes shut feel a long breath enter the lungs, with a long slow exhale, feel it leave. Pay attention to the way air moves into, and out of, the body. Do not stop after 3, let the uncomfortable sensation sit, keep breathing ~ slowly. After a time, a small relaxation will arrive … keep breathing. Breathe through the need to get up and be busy … just sit and breathe.

Truths and Paths

Suffering … it happens to us all. The causes are many, perhaps it is a desire for something, and an attachment to getting what is perceived as a want or need. In order to ease this suffering, a change is needed, a change in the ideas of what we want, or need. The method of this change is in the eightfold path.

Eight fold path

I love being around people who create a spark in my mind. I walk away from meetings such as the most recent, and my thoughts gravitate to what is happening in my world … in day to day life.

I am grateful, for it is these moments that provide an expansion, a possibility for my “box” to get larger.

There is a lot of talk on remaining grounded, it is difficult to do so. The world seems to be in chaos, it is a reflection of the hearts of humanity.

Working to bring calm to our own awareness will allow a peaceful flow of energies to join us in the outside world. It all begins in our heart, moves to the mind, and comes forth in action.

Sacred Spaces

Published May 14, 2017 by tindertender

In the city, energies collect and become charged with whatever is going on in minds. It can get so thick at times it is difficult to breathe. It really is no wonder there are so many folks who just explode on each other. Many people haven’t the opportunity to get out of town and just step away from it all for a time.

It is very important to create a sacred space, wherever time is spent, even if it is only a little corner in the room. Following are several images on what a sacred space means for a few people, and perhaps might be utilized to spark your own creativity for that little haven you’ve been needing.

Whatever this space may be for you, the wonders of healing can be had when items cherished are placed about and time is spent there, if only for a short time per day, or even just when you have time.

Take time for you. When you bring mind and body into harmony, it is much easier to participate in the dealings of the world.


I Won’t Cry For Yesterday

Published May 7, 2017 by tindertender

Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue,
Thought I heard you talking softly.
I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio,
Still I can’t escape the ghost of you.
What has happened to it all?
“Crazy,” some would say.
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away…

But I won’t cry for yesterday, there’s an ordinary world,
Somehow I have to find.
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
I will learn to survive.

Passion or coincidence once prompted you to say:
“Pride will tear us both apart.”
Well now pride’s gone out the window, cross the rooftops, run away,
Left me in the vacuum of my heart.
What is happening to me?
“Crazy,” some would say.
Where is my friend when I need you most?
Gone away…

But I won’t cry for yesterday, there’s an ordinary world,
Somehow I have to find.
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
I will learn to survive.

(Ooh, Ahh, Ooh)

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and greed.
Fear today, forgot tomorrow… ooh
Here beside the news of holy war and holy need,
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk, just blown away

And I won’t cry for yesterday, there’s an ordinary world,
Somehow I have to find.
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
I will learn to survive.

If My World…

Any world…
Is my world…
Every world…
Is our world…
