We See, We Wait

Published February 17, 2018 by tindertender

My eyes watched you as you did your deeds.
My heart pounded, and my body shook, as I watched you attack innocence.
My mind raged as I saw the oil leak, as I watched the animals die.
Nothing grows here any more.

Entire cities are forced to pay for poison.
Elected officials are only interested in money.
Dollars spent line pockets, rather than rectify a bad situation.
Selfishness runs rampant in high circles.

Care for each other only seems to be in places of need.
In other places, there is only greed.
One day, maybe soon, laws will liquefy, and the thumb will be removed.
Compassion and union, exceeding that of the past, will be the new norm.


Beauty is seen in the eyes of many,
Souls alive with kindness … gentle, and wise.
Patiently waiting for the time to rise,
Waiting for seekers who feel the same.

United once more, all will be,
For it is known, theft and anger will never bring peace.
Working together there is a rebirth of the sacred.
It is shining in the minds, in the hearts, of the mothers and the fathers …

Who are you … who is me … who is we,
Who give birth to the New Way.

New Year Connections & Patience

Published December 31, 2017 by tindertender

Driving by day, flying by night ~ stop overs here and there for work, for task. Is one more real than the other? Some will say yes. I will draw my own conclusions.

Opportunity shines for new experience, new faces, new places. Time must be given for the opening of doors, for alignment is in progress, it cannot be rushed.

Time Is A River

Published November 1, 2017 by tindertender

I resolve myself to the fact I cannot stop death. However I would like to delay, or eliminate it all together, I cannot. Someday, the ones I love will no longer be here. Someday, it will be “I” who am no longer here … in body. Where shall we go? I do not know, for if I am from there, I have little memory of it, in fact, it seems but a dream. All the more reason not to spend time wrapped in blame, trying to please others. Instead, I focus on pleasing myself, and the ones who mesh with the reality of my current self, will be there.

Time is a river …

The journey is quite short, there is no time to waste on trivial things that really have no matter to the larger picture. There are plenty of opportunities to be dragged into the past, downward into guilt and hurt … there are also just as many opportunities to rise above it and commit to building a life lighter, brighter, shedding the darkness of fear and blame. As the day breaks, say goodbye to that which detracts from the greatness you are. Deep within you, you feel it, that beautiful power to create joyful realities. It may be in the small things, or it may be large, it is there just the same, waiting … in time.

Remember … when someone tries to tell you what you are, what you think, how you feel … they cannot possibly know … for they are not in you. What they perceive is often skewed by what is in them ~ And it is A-OK, for In Time all will work itself out.

Being responsible for our own energy can be difficult. We often find ourselves trying to make someone else feel okay. However, we will never be able to have a lasting solution for someone elses happiness, not if they fail to do the work themselves.

There is no need to feel guilty for self care.

Being aware is step one, quiet observation of events and circumstance is challenging as we slip into defense mode. Step out and above … move beyond the immediate, watch the unfolding of experience and then determine if it makes you happy.

Happiness, Joy, Love and Peace are our right. Demanding it be given to us from someone else will never fill our cup. Sometimes, the bird must fly. Sometimes solitude is the saving grace.

Celebrate ~ One Day At A Time

Published August 22, 2017 by tindertender


Regardless of what happened yesterday, today is still a good day to be happy again. Leave the past where it is so you can keep moving forward. Just because they hurt you, it doesn’t mean that you can’t heal. Just because they couldn’t see your value, it doesn’t mean that someone else never will. Just because the relationship ended, it doesn’t mean that it is the end of your love life. Be happy with yourself today. Celebrate the fact that you are still a great person and that you did not allow one bad experience to control how you approach the rest of your life. Live, Love and Laugh, one day at a time. ॐ

Letting Go

Published August 11, 2017 by tindertender


At some point, all of us will most likely feel it. I know of one personally who did not have it touch life until later in years, however, it came, nonetheless.

No one is immune to the swing of the pendulum. None of us are alone in the reality that all must experience these shifts.

True, great love can bring great despair, but I am grateful for those who allow it in their lives, for it is they, who have truly lived. It is difficult to pull through these dark times. A positive mind set and outlook doesn’t always seem to get us where we would like to be. With patience, effort and perseverance, things will shift.

I wonder if sometimes the pain of it all simply cause us to give in to the suffering. I know in my personal experience, for a time, I did indeed give in. I lost hope. But you see, I LOVE life, and so I waited, stretching my capacity to endure even the hardest of times. And the smog of that drenching and suffocating gloom lifted.

Patience is key to so much of everything. Things do not always change because we want them to. No, they become new when divinity sees it is time, for the alchemy of our soul depends on these experiences.

Trust the process.

Sometimes, willingly stepping out from our comfort zone, rather than holding with that death grip onto what we feel “okay” with, we allow for greater good to enter our lives. At times, it could appear as though we are taking steps backward … know that this is the way of change, it may not have any resemblance to what you’ve become accustomed to.

With positive mind set, open eyes and heart, willingness to see the bigger reality of the moment, we can see that letting go is often the only true way of holding onto that which has the most value … LOVE ~ for self, for others, for the world.

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.

Forward, Ever Forward

Many will lash out in spitting anger, they will outright attack you. I see it every day, personally, and I know you do as well. Hold on, it will smooth out, it will take a little time yet, however time is a gift.

Time is a gift.pngTime is the gift given to those who have chosen to hold on to pain and suffering, and who choose, even if not consciously, to continue the cycle. There is still opportunity to turn it around.

Active participation in what is wanted is the key to positive change. The energies spent being shocked and appalled and voicing opinions as such, are better spent on working toward a peaceful, connected, and honorable reality. Take that power which is yours and apply it to the future you wish to see. Start with your heart, pay attention to the smile you offer people, instead of letting it fall from your face as soon as the walk away, hold it, hold it in place for just another moment and consider the conversation, the connection.

Smile_1Soon you will see that wearing a smile does something to the mind, it shifts thought patterns from a somewhat dark nature to an upward lift, something brighter, a spring might even form in the steps you take.

This power is in you. No one need give permission for you to gather this ingrained wonder which resides in your inner most being and utilizing it for the benefit of the future. I am not speaking of monetary gain or title, I am speaking of self value … what do you think when you consider your life? Do you find yourself on the defensive? Or are you embracing every moment, every opportunity for growth?

Patience.jpgIt is not necessary to convince another that you are worthy. When you are certain of your value in your mind, in your heart, life flows … what comes is meant to be, and what does not come is a hint of better things on the horizon.

Be patient.
Know that it is going to be alright.
All things needed for the benefit of all life are coming.
