Harmony & Unity

Published April 8, 2018 by tindertender

UnityWhen the lone wolf begins to understand that strength lies in the pack, the magic happens, and swiftly.

For too long people have separated themselves from each other. Fear has kept us divided. Jealousy has hardened many hearts.

Understand that all things change, nothing stays the same. Embrace what each situation brings, the pathways they open in our mind, and deepness it brings to our soul.

This life is an ocean with many waves and surfers. There is a rhythm which naturally happens when all are focused … in harmony there is unity.

A radiance emanates from people who are intent on achieving something. No greed, no need for power, simple solutions made successful by those who work together. A conscious cooperation which benefits the whole.

The Way Of Life

Published April 6, 2018 by tindertender

Morning stretches … energetic flow brings a sweat to my brow, my cheeks. I sit in contemplation about my family, my friends both near and far, and I send them love and peace. I think of the animals in the world and send them kindness.. I work for balance between us all where compassion binds ‘we’ together.

I open my book of “The Way of Life” according to Lao Tzu and I share what I find there.

Lao Tzu

‘Yield and you need not break’:
Bent you can straiten,
Emptied you can hold,
Torn you can mend;
And as want can reward you
So wealth can bewilder.
Aware of this, a wise man has the simple return
Which other men seek:
Without inflaming himself
He is kindled,
Without explaining himself
Is explained,
Without taking credit
Is credited,
Laying no claim
Is acclaimed
And, because he does not compete,
Finds peaceful competence.
How true is the old saying,
‘Yield and you need not break’!
How completely it comes home!

On the opposite page there is another about nature, and since they both arrived together this morning, I will share it as well, for perhaps this is the one that will strike a cord in you, ever revving your creative connective flow.

Nature does not have to insist,
Can blow for only half a morning,
Rain for only half a day,
And what are these winds and these rains but natural?
If nature does not have to insist,
Why should man?
It is natural too
That whoever follows the way of life feels alive,
That whoever uses it properly feels well used,
Whereas he who loses the way of life feels lost,
That whoever keeps to the way of life
Feels at home,
Whoever uses it properly
Feels welcome,
Whereas he who uses it improperly
Feels improperly used:
‘Fail to honor people,
They fail to honor you.’

There are systems in place which are controlling the weather, misusing the nature of things. The disconnect grows and the angst between people does as well. My hope is that more will come to realize the saneness in the words of Lao Tzu and embrace a change of thought, of heart, and of ‘doing’.

Is ‘Existence’ Being Unraveled?

Published February 16, 2018 by tindertender

There is a fork in the road. Looking from above it can be seen as one path becoming two, OR it can be seen and two paths becoming one. Coming and going, there is unity or division. The way traveled will determine what that path means for you, and what you desire in your life … union, or separation.

Is our very existence being strategically unraveled?

Past Present Future

I roamed the infinite last night and came to a place where light skinned people worked the food stores. There was complaining as they stocked the shelves, they did not want to work the whole of their weekend. The tan skinned people lounged in their outdoor hot tubs located in the currents of the river. The waters were somewhat of an aqua color, everyone was smiling and laughing, men, women & children. Joy was upon their faces and one man looked directly at me.

I wonder why some who have one appearance must serve others with differing physical characteristics, instead of all serving each other. Will this fork in the road forever have this split?

It seems just as people are meshing together, some war, here or there, is concocted to tear people apart. It seems to me that separation is orchestrated by the monetarily wealthy with made up scenarios. It appears a connection of souls is not on the agenda … for some. If people stopped warring with each other, there would be no need for a certain group to direct the majority into chaos and battle … power would level out among the people and harmony would prevail.

The chances of peace happening are very real … if only people would think with their main brain and not use the head brain for following orders blindly, for believing lies told without questioning the truth of it, or the objective.

Once the main objective is found and understood, it should be carefully considered … is it good for the people, is it ethical, is it moral, will it facilitate peace and joy, or will it cause destruction and pain? If the latter, I am hoping the inner most part of a soul would reject it, and move toward a more positive solution for whatever issue arises.

 

Conscious, In Silence

Published February 6, 2018 by tindertender

CoffeeI pour myself a cup of coffee, it is quite tasty this early morning. My pups decided 3:30am was a good time to wake me. I laid there after their morning potty break and dozed for a time, but here I am … thinking again. I find that what enters mind in these earliest hours, tells a story which is most true, it bares the soul for what it finds important before the days activity can cause distraction.

The lights went out, I suppose they weren’t meant to last forever. I’m left with a half string, glowing in the dark. Perhaps life is the same, shining for awhile and then out in a flash ~ not to be seen any longer, by human eyes, that is.

36646454 - bright sketchy doodles about brain with colored elementsI wonder why it is that speaking seems a little backward. I begin, and then end with what should have started it all. Computers are a grand thing in that they allow opportunity to cut and paste. Maybe you recall the days of typewriters … the erasing process was not easy, often one had to start all over.

Those who say they know also say that Creator is aware of our conscious thought as well as our unconscious thought, knowing our hearts and intentions better than even we. They say that what we say and do cannot be hidden, for all is heard and seen. Yet when people say they ‘hear’ someone talking which others do not they are deemed ‘crazy’ and in need of medication, Why are these two not tied into each other and an attempt made to understand fully?

In dreams messages come, and we are not the only ones who see. Little mini movies play out and our integrity is tested … will we fight, will we protect, will we love, will we hate? Consciously it is the same ~ will we be grateful, will we be patient, will we care?

Psychics and mediums are all over this world. There are many who have this ability, yet do not understand that this is what it is. Traditional medicine answers every time with pharmaceutical which dulls the mind, we have no spiritual guides here who are willing to assist, not without much money and many are only scams. One must travel to find those who actually practice this connection and have knowledge of the truth of it. Most do not have this opportunity for travel, so are left to swim in this unknown sea alone.

I think of the animals which are abused and killed, how some people actually enjoy doing this. My mind is boggled by the coldness of some and I wonder what their dreams are like … knowing I really do not want to know. I do not even want to know them when they are conscious, putting on the show of having a heart, of caring. I do not want to partake in their activity, even remotely, this is why I stopped eating meat … this ‘food’ wants to live too, wants to love and be loved.

These are the types of things I think of in the early morning hours. I wonder if there is anything I can do to help this situation. There is … and I’m doing it, yet it seems such a small contribution to the betterment of the whole. If only others were doing the same (I know many are) then maybe peace would come quicker. Maybe we would help each other, and all life, and compassion would grow.

What’s in your garden?

 

 

Peace Bell

Published February 5, 2018 by tindertender

May the sound of this bell penetrate deep within the cosmos. Even in the darkest of spots, all living beings are able to hear it clearly. So that all suffering in them ceases. Understanding comes to their heart and they transcend the path from sorrow and death.

Listening to the bell I feel the afflictions in me begin to dissolve, My mind calm, my body relaxed, a smile is born on my lips. Following the sound of the bell my breath brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness. In the garden of my heart the flowers of peace bloom beautifully.

Flower Of Sound

Drumming LadyBeautiful flower, she sits and drums with hands. Her hair flows just as free as her spirit coming forth into the room.

Pure joy and happiness fill the air and union takes place with others. A fellowship develops as all drummers and rattlers sinc into balance.

A man gets up and barrels a deep throaty vibrato, his voice sends chills through spines.

A woman rises and begins to move to the sound, flowing as water in a clear running stream.

Sage fills the air, and an energy so rich connects them all. True wealth has nothing to do with paper dollars, and everything to do with this connection.

Seekers will find each other, and no amount of regulation can keep a free spirit down, especially when they reach for one another creating bonds that will never break.

Stillness vs Consistent Sound

Published January 19, 2018 by tindertender

Typically, my room-mate has nearly, if not all, of the electronic equipment he owns in the on position. A constant buzz of electricity, the modem and router working full time into the extender which reaches my end of the house.

candle burning

This morning I woke to a darkened room. It was silent, as the whole neighborhood was without power. I stepped out of bed and walked the hall to the living room where my roomy had lit a candle, and another in the kitchen. The dim glow was soothing to my eyes and mind.

I pulled the propane and the camp cook stove from the shelf and was trying to remember where I had stashed the coffee pot to get the morning brew going, when the power came back on.

That’s when it really hit me, the constant buzz of electricity.

Now, even more than before, I would really like to rent a cabin deep in the woods for a night and just listen to the forest speak, the waters flow, and the critters who live there go on about life. Perhaps this weekend …

As I think of this, I wonder about the many people in Puerto Rico who have been without power for so long. I hope they are fairing well with this new way of living. I send them this thread of compassion and I hope that it finds someones heart.
