Gaining Traction

Published November 16, 2017 by tindertender

I drove to the gate and began speaking with the person at the other end of the speaker. I could not remember my pass code, but they knew me. They were able to pull up all information needed to inform me of exactly what I had available … relieved, I stated Thank You!, for I still have insurance and pet medicine to purchase!

There are always people with their hands out. It seems I am quite wealthy with this monetary stuff, until the medical practitioner, the pharmacist, the vet, the electric, the gas, the cable and the phone company take their share. Let us not forget the food for human and pets, the toiletries and water and housing. It all leaves very little for personal hobbies and for gas … to drive back and forth to work, to earn another round of wages.

Escaping Gilded Cage
Many people are attempting to leave this ‘system’, purchasing land, building an economical home, investing in solar energy and composting toilets, growing their own organic foods … yet we hear of counties which confiscate this land, prohibiting people from dwelling in their newly created homes and enjoying their chosen lifestyle. We hear of counties who prohibit folks from utilizing their grassy yards for gardens to grow their own organic foods, we see people criminalized for collecting rain water. Indeed, it appears there is a great desire to keep us contained within our gilded cages.

“I’m getting through it”, I said to her, as she lowered her voice and spoke to me in a manner that seemed apologetic. I looked into the voice box, smiled, and asked her to Have a great day.

Despite everything this invisible society does, we still have the option of smiling, pushing forward, prevailing through it all. Giving up is a choice, and a sometimes a very much needed rest while thoughts and energies are gathered for another shot at this thing called life. There have been times, where to an outsider (which all are, for they cannot be within our minds) may have thought I have given up, seeing me spinning my wheels, and then coming to a stop, wallowing in self abuse for a time. But then, traction and a desire for something more took place.

This journey is indeed quite difficult, but none of us arrived here with less than needed to push through and reach for the stars. It definitely will seem as though that is a false statement at times, however when looking back, you’ll see how far you’ve come, how many obstacles you’ve hurdled. The question is, are you letting these trials steal your joy?

People United

Published November 15, 2017 by tindertender

What happens when a concerted effort is placed upon the success of a thing? When people come together in a conscious exertion of power ~ very little can deter them.

people united

One has to admit it can be quite amazing when citizenry embraces their truest power, united. The force which proves itself to be nearly unstoppable, especially moral or mental strength, can actually end hostilities we see in the world.

Love is the power that holds together everything.
Deepening awareness of the natural world, it becomes
easier to see our connection to it.

“Nature. Love. Medicine. Healing. Reciprocity. Generosity. These capacities, taken together, generate a spirit of community, aspiration, togetherness, virtue, agency, meaning and purpose. We would be utterly lost without them. The integration of these capacities, taken together, is the source of all our good works. With the magnitude of the challenges that face us, there is no greater urgency than to understand their significance.”

Holy Eyes

Holy eyes
This is opportunity for creation! So what if you don’t succeed the 1st, or 2nd, or 3rd time. There will be many times success eludes you! Keep trying. You may fail to see your efforts bear fruit time after time, but if you quit you’ll never see the plans blossom.

Look deep into your eyes, what do you see?
Those are HOLY eyes, look long and steady.

 

Outer Calm, Inner Turmoil

Published October 20, 2017 by tindertender

As I sit, serene look upon my face, the inner talk and questions never cease, although you would not know it. I imagine it is the same with others. When I look at someone, curiosity arises, and I wonder if they have the inner conversations with self (or with whomever may be listening) like I do, and I wonder if they are curious if I do as well.

It enters my mind that someone out there hears, knows … my heart and inner intent very clear. I cannot seem to get the story of Mithras out of my mind.

Mithras

MIthrasMithra, friend, originating in India, was a god of light who was translated into the attendant god of Ahura Mazdah in the light religion of Persia, from there he was adopted by the Romans as their deity Mithras. Generally, he is not regarded as a sky god, but rather a personification of the fertilization power of warm, light air. According to the Avesta, he possesses 10,000 eyes and ears and rides in a chariot drawn by white horses.

In the dualistic Zoroastrianism, which effectively demoted him, Mithra, who represented truth, was concerned with the constant battle between light and dark forces. He was responsible for the keeping of oaths and contracts. He was born from a rock, according to legend, and engaged in a primeval struggle with Ahura Mazdah’s first creation, a wild bull, which he subdued and confined in a cave. The bull escaped, but was recaptured by Mithra, who slit its throat. The flowing of that blood gave plant life on earth. Ahriman, the power of darkness, is his chief adversary.

Mithra, though not generally worshiped alone, was an integral part of the Mithraic worship of Ahura Mazdah, where he acts as an intercessor between gods and men. In the Hellenic period he assumes more of the role of a sun god.

Hears All, Sees All, Knows All

Often we may believe that we are alone in this world, left to defend ourselves from all of the chaos that surrounds us. While it may appear to be true, I urge you to think on all of the ‘close calls’ you’ve had in life. Do you honestly believe they were only that, or do you believe you were actually helped through the experience? My thought is that many of you know you were assisted by that which you do not see.

The One with all authority needs no name, for this One is for all. Mankind has had so many ‘stories’ fed to it that it is difficult to shed these layers and see the actual truth, which is so simple, it is hard to grasp. Humanity has a habit of complicating everything it touches.

Two Truths

Published October 15, 2017 by tindertender

Strength: What is it? Is it purely the physical strength, or is it endurance? Is it a combination of endurance, while still finding forgiveness and compassion in the heart, not succumbing to anger and resentment and victimhoood? Is it patience in combination with all of the aforementioned things? I am certain many will have their own thoughts on strength, and the truth for them will indeed be true, and it may even morph into something completely different in 5 years time.

Smart: What is that? Is it book smart, or common sense? I suppose you could say the scientists who study disease and CERN’s capabilities are highly intelligent, but are they smart? Do they recognize that they have potential to open doors (indeed probably already have) that would best remain closed? Does the drive to understand the workings of a particular thing over-ride the need to protect life which relies upon it’s dormant state?

Two TruthsPerhaps intelligence only comes to those who do not see themselves as brilliant. Perhaps the brilliance of some outshines their capacity for true understanding of the bigger picture. If not, and the bigger picture is perceived, and destructive scenarios proceed anyway, then sciences love for life has most likely left the building … or the planet. Perhaps those who sever heads off rats only to splice it into the spine of another, are aliens, practicing openly the tests previously known as abductions and mysterious murders.

There is a sinister, dark and twisted reality many will not fathom. It is awful, and to some, incomprehensible. To others, it is easier to ignore obvious clues and build a sweet little dream into which the daily routine spins.

Whatever way it is looked at, it revolves, and evolves. As the unseen and unknown are brought into the light, it will be made apparent. Even skeptics will say they see, and of course, there will still be those who will refuse.

There are 2 things I know to be truth at this time.
1) I do not know what it means to be strong.
2) I am uncertain what it means to be smart.

Power Of Discernment

Published October 15, 2017 by tindertender

When it is suggested that you stop being concerned for others, that you instead shut down and stop letting your heart strings sing, beware. Beware, and be aware … does it make sense that you allow yourself to grow cold? Does it make sense that you develop the attitude that some are deserving, while others are not?

Although it is true, there are many who are not ready or willing to see quite the same as yourself when it comes to certain topics, it does not make them wrong, or any less lovable than another. It is also true that while in the midst of a deafening and stifling darkness, some do others harm.  This blackness that has hold of them is manipulating circumstances in the hopes that it will harden even the softest hearts. Do not let it.

Greatness Is Up To Us

Published October 10, 2017 by tindertender

In our hurry to expel that which is no longer serving our highest and greatest good, what is affecting our lives and our surroundings in a manner that may not be positive, we must remember to rest. Reducing harmful aspects of our living too quickly may also do more harm than is needed. Push it out, leave it behind, by all miens if this is what feels should be done, but rest … when strength is replenished, begin again.

You have probably had the drive to make great change come upon you, or perhaps it is gently coming into mind. I will not make a list, for every one of us has a different scenario we live with, habits included. There is no wrong way to go about this, as long as an effort to cause no harm for others, or self, is made.

If-you-admire-greatness-in-another-human-being

Look around you, there are so many in this world who are feeling this shift as well. Our media focuses on the negatives and if we choose to wait for them to broadcast something which provides hope, we will miss it.

It is up to us to foster the beauty and greatness of humanity.
First by being, and then by seeing.
