Genesis ~ Behind the Lines

Published April 29, 2019 by tindertender

“I held the book so tightly in my hands,

I saw your picture, heard you call my name

There was something strange, I could not look away

I wanted to be there, I wanted to go

You gave me no warning

You gave no reason

But I was with you

Right by your side

Just give me the strength, and I will help you

And they can try their hardest, cos they don’t frighten me

It is written in the book

It is hotter than I’ve known before, but I feel so cold, and I don’t

know why

But if the fire within your heart can beat the storm

Then I really believe, you could make it right

Ooh the time has come now

We must show our feelings

But I’m looking right through you

And your heart is empty

Whatever happened to you it’s too late to change now

There’s nowhere you can run to, no place to hide

Ah you let me down!

…but wait a minute, I don’t understand

It’s getting stronger, so grab my hand

Don’t wanna leave you, don’t wanna go

But I’m losing all control

Can’t you see me? I’m slipping away

I can only stay if you’ve the will to keep me here

It is written in the book

Oh so many times since then I’ve read those words

Just waiting to see you, can you see me?”

You Have The Remedy

Published November 18, 2018 by tindertender

“You do not know it, but in you is the remedy; you cause sickness, but this you don’t see. You are but a small form … this, you assume: but you’re larger than any universe, in reality. You are the book that of any fallacies is clear, in you are all letters spelling out, the mystery. You are the Being, you’re the very Being … It: you contain That, which contained cannot be!”

Walled Garden of Truth

Published November 10, 2018 by tindertender

“Unable to perceive the shape of you, I find you all around me. Your presence fills my eyes with your love. It humbles my heart, for you are everywhere.”

 Hakim Sanai’s Walled Garden of the Truth

The poem is a translation from Hakim Sanai (Persian poet) work. here is the link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanai if you want to know him more. The last line of the movie credit (The Shape of Water) says : Adapted works from Hakim Sanai

Here are the translation and the original poem:

چون نگنجد شکل تو در عقل من Unable to perceive the shape of You

بینمت در هر مکان و منزلی I find You all around me

زین حضورت، عشق شسته چشم من Your presence fills my eyes with Your love

دل‌زلالم، چون به هر جا حاضری It humbles my heart, For You are everywhere

Webs Of Life

Published July 27, 2018 by tindertender

Cobwebs in the kitchen, cobwebs in the bedroom, hanging from the ceiling and everywhere I look, reminding me of work to be done … or not. Cobwebs in my mind, cobwebs in time, winding round and round sticking to whatever is found.

Sound waves ripping through space, microwaves too, heating everything in its path, and echoing in the head. Ripples in the water reaching beyond and out, connecting with others and merging as one.

Webs created and webs formed, uniting life and death in cycles. Seen and unseen, explainable and yet also hard to understand, these invisible, and sometimes showing, strings of connection bind all that ever was, and all that is, and everything to come.

Dancing In The Storm

Published February 24, 2018 by tindertender

Where shall we go?
A journey will be made
Destination unknown.
Companions, unknown.

Many are seeking
A path of peace, of learning.
Will agreement be possible
To benefit all?

No need for sorrow
For it will be.
That which you seek 
Not only possible, but true.

Lion in storm

War breaks out 
All around us,
Individual, and en mass.
Steadily, we move forward.

There is a danger 
In moving too quickly,
In being obvious
Concerning decisions.

Stealthy movement,
Slow and steady breath.
Patience and a practice
For maintaining perspective.

Let go of notions
Which limit the field.
Live in each moment,
Notice what is.

All will be well,
Despite the odds.
I know this to be true
And so should you.

Trust yourself,
Believe in yourself.
In unison, this dance
Is a celebration.

An engaging together,
A forming of union
Which is freedom and care …
For the whole.

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.

family

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.
