Be Happy Anyway

Published September 9, 2018 by tindertender

After a joy filled day yesterday I was nearly home when the car in front of me hit a beautiful white bird. The wings flapped as it struggled to get out of the way of traffic, but people were driving too fast. I wasn’t able to stop and help it. I was so sad, knowing that someone behind me would hit it again, and again. I prayed that it would end quickly for that little bird.

I was thinking that someone was trying to send message that no matter how much joy we may have in this world there will always be an occurrence to come along and attempt to kill that beautiful dove of peace, and be successful much of the time. So I voiced aloud, “No matter how often you kill that dove, you will never eliminate peace in this world.”

I wake this morning thinking of that beautiful bird, and I vow to go out and find something that will bring me joy, and I will share that emotion with others I encounter. Call me stubborn, but I will not allow this to hinder my ability to retain and maintain joy in my life.

Although it does make me sad when I see it in my memory …

There is a force out there which will constantly try to take from humans the ability to experience joy. Whatever it can do to keep people trapped in sorrow and fear, or pain and frustration, it will do.

Be happy anyway, go, and do … find situations and make friends who you can enjoy this life with, despite those who work diligently to bring you down, to douse your fire and love for this life.

See the bird fly free in spirit, as beautiful as it ever was in physical form, knowing that nothing can touch it now.

Fragmented Soul

War ~
Some are very good at it, and while they fight, the other half of them – dies.

Dedicating LIFE to make WAR is nonsensical. Our men (and women) who decide to do this, fighting in conflicts which have no bearing or threat to their own country, is insane. They give up their opportunity for peace, and they take opportunity for peace from others … on orders from men who would never put themselves in these positions. Of course there are life-long members of this game they play, they got into it and discovered they enjoy the chaos, probably because they cannot stand to be alone with themselves and their thoughts of what they’ve become. And if they DO like what they’ve become … they are lost.

Someone once told me to stay away from those who serve more than one term. They said ‘once and done’ … but if people stay longer than that, it means they enjoy killing and ought to be forgotten, steered wide of.

I have no doubt that innocence when enlisting is crushed. What comes out of that, what the ‘powers that be’ hope to create, is a killing machine – that’s their goal, to keep needless war going.

The fragmented soul has no power to create peace … within themselves or anywhere else, for peace begins in the mind. Those intent on destruction have not this capacity. There are the strong few who turn about and, with great effort, flip the poles of who they are and what they do, and it takes constant effort to undo the damage done. The slightest trigger can flip them right back to where they were, in destroy mode.

See, governments have no desire for people to be at peace. It’s always a war on this and a war on that … never is it about peace. Sure, they might call it a ‘peace mission’, failing to see that bringing chaos to any situation will never result in the ‘peace’ they speak of.

I pray for you, fragmented soul. I pray that you will have the strength and courage to leave behind what you’ve been told to believe, and the stamina to create a new reality for yourself, one which includes the contribution of soothing the pain and the suffering being birthed in this world. My hope is that you find your way out of the chaotic darkness that was handed you, and enmeshed in your psyche.

May healing and rebirth come to all in the world.
May sorrow become joy,
And may chaos become peace.
Let Balance Be.

Just Like The First Time ~

Lately I’ve been immersing myself in Love … remembering how it felt to be in a world that played these songs every day, and actually lived love. I really believed in love at that time … still do. The impostor, parasite, and killer of that which is good needs to be reigned in. For too long they’ve been allowed to promote harm in this world.

While I feel … while I cry … while I remember the purity of this love … while I recall the truth of it … I envision you doing the same.

It is said that our words live in the hearts and minds of seven generations. I am grateful for the words of those from the 50’s, 60′ 70’s and even some of the 80’s. They say we will return to the world we give the youth. It seems many doors have been closed and the individuals ability and power for transformation forgotten. My hope is there will be a rebirth, a quick one, in which memories from recent past ignite and take flight, swooping across lands, eliminating darkness and pain.

There are those who wait for your knowledge, the experience you’ve cultivated. Share wisdom with them, encourage harmonious action, inspire courage. A time for victory  and peace is on the horizon. It is not created from ‘war’, but from the refusal of it.

The more you can appreciate your achievements and quickly free your spirit once again to go on, the less the world will have to challenge your position. Move, grow, continue your journey of self-awareness. Debilitating doubts creep in at every level, stagnating the flow. Dance on them. Lift yourself to new heights. You have the energy and experience to do so.

Your protection is your ever-expanding vision that comes to include the good of all. This is a shield against jealousy and greed. Set your spirit free.

Remember … you are not what others think of you. You are the words you allow to dwell in your mind. Listen, observe, trust not words alone, but the power behind them. Listen to the essence of what is being spoken. Your inner sense knows the truth. Learn its way. Listen with your whole body.

And Love breathes new life into everything.

Veg and Flower

This morning I had a fabulous time with a friend as we walked along the river and took pics of pigeons, geese, and ducks. Getting a photo of them in flight isn’t the easiest task!

After coming home I decided to plant flowers where my garlic once was. The chamomile harvest is over, so I took the dead stems out and planted flowers in the wheelbarrow too.

My hollyhock is doing pretty good. It seems the growth of things really got a slow start this year. The tomatoes are starting to ripen. Bell peppers are not flowering. I’m beginning to wonder if I got a bad batch of seed. I heard if GMO crop seeds are harvested, and then planted, they will not reproduce. Maybe this is what is going on.

At any rate, I am quite happy with the looks and progress of my little garden, so since it is warm and I was up at 4 a.m., I do believe it is nap time.

It seams the earth has sucked out the amped up energetics of the morning.

ZZZZzzzzz …….

Love Will Always Heal Your Heart

Published July 27, 2018 by tindertender

I learned many things last night, profound things, yet my conscious mind cannot seem to bring them to the forefront. My hope is the information shared in the night will affect my daily decisions, for it is quite important knowledge!

If only I could tape record my lessons during sleep.

As I sit and write this morning I recall the realization of comparison … I speak here in the written word, and you read it wherever you are. You may even discuss the material with your friends, you may discuss me and where my mind must be going with all this.

The same is true of inner communication, it is so much more sophisticated, there need be no “hard” technology of computer, keyboard, and internet WiFi … the message is heard quite clearly without them. The only difference is, the ‘outer discussion’ can be sensed and heard. I laughed as I thought of this, and am so pleased to be taking part in this insightful communication.

As I watched her watching me last night in my relaxed frame of mind, eyes closed, I realized, “I’m remote viewing!” Wow … and to think I’ve been making it sound so hard, when all one need do is release, and allow flow.

‘Many others’ who have opinions and ideas of your life and situation can cause confusion. In solitude, stepping away from the chaotic cycle of spinning advice, it is easier to reconnect to intuition and instinct … listening to our own process is essential for personal peace and sanity.

Now is not the time to ignore the ‘messengers’. Don’t get caught up in fear or the discomfort of change. Stop procrastinating. Hear and see the truth as it comes to you, there is wisdom being offered, shared, and is born of your own intuition.

Nurture the things you care about … your hopes, your dreams, your body, your mind, your spirit, your creations, and your relationships, all that is you needs to be cherished, loved, honored and respected. Nurture them, and they will bring you peace and fulfillment.

You have been taught that all is either good or evil, negative or positive; good gives rise to good, and bad gives rise to bad. Everything happens for a reason. The lessons offered by the shadow often teach us the most. Remember, without darkness, the stars cannot be seen.

You could have one of several destinies. Trust that everything you hope and dream of, for your highest and greatest good, will be there waiting for you.

Beyond Appearances

(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.

Plucking Fear From Mind & Body

Published June 22, 2018 by tindertender

This world is a breeding ground for fear. Upon entering this life there is a pure innocence and joy, often stripped away before words are even spoken, or soon thereafter.

Fear lives so deeply within the body/spirit system, sometimes it isn’t even known. Through life a tough exterior is grown, a stiff upper lip, a stubborn thrust of the chin, a bad attitude … whatever it takes to defend the self from the continuous lash of what hurts.

A false joy is developed, many become experts at pretending happiness, they stuff the pain until it cannot be recognized, but it is still there … wrapped in fear. Heck, there are even times when one truly believes they are happy! Then something happens and they begin to question that reality … at least I have.

There are those who coach people to walk into the fear, face it head on … even I have said it, and I believe it! Yet still, knowing this and actually doing it are two different things. Sometimes when we think we are walking into it, we hold back ~ not even knowing we reserved the right to maintain the embedded habit of fear, to hold that wall of protection up just in case.

Yes, this world breeds fear, and also provides what is needed to overcome it … strength is developed, endurance, a stubborn will that calls for us to survive even when we would rather quit.

How does one shed the fear? How does one actually reach so deep inside the core of the being, grab hold of that fear, pinch it, and pluck it right from the body and the mind? There are many theories written and taught by those who say they have no fear … but do they? Neither here nor there, each individual must find a way to their center and have a willingness to honestly evaluate what they find there. It cannot be done for us ~ it can only be done by us, for us.

The question is then, how badly do we wish for peace? At what lengths are we willing to go to create it?

The Sacred Wisdom Keepers know of this better than many. If we long for the truth, if we truly wish to see a better world, this is a good place to search, beginning of course by looking into our own being. There must be a desire to open the mind in order to receive knowledge, and there ought to be a respect for the sharing one receives from an Elder.

Life is short, even when one lives to be what we now consider old. There isn’t time to waste on stubbornness and pretending, not if we long to see a world full of truth, peace, joy, and love.
