Expansion vs Shrinking

Published April 2, 2019 by tindertender

Why is it that some people always latch on and abuse those who do not wish to fight? If they like fighting so much why don’t they choose to fight with another who likes it equally well? Probably because they know, or fear, they will lose, and that makes them them feel crappy about themselves … that … and not the fact they are tormenting an innocent. They hurt others because of their own lack and shame in the guise of being tough men, or women.

Right is Light; Left is Bereft: Left wishes to ‘own’ from behind the curtain of deceit, wishes harm. Right is about discipline. How many levels do you think there is for these?

I’m just about at the end of my rope,
but I’ll keep on tryin’, I cannot give up hope.

“Control where your attention goes. The left is well known by now. Let them be. Send your attention to the right … Observe without judgement … Watch. This could be ‘people’, or ‘spirit’. Often our attention is commanded by others. Commotion, chaos … Always these circumstances or conversations pull our attention to it. Focusing on purposeful placement of this attention isn’t always easy. Those who practice meditation can tell you this. Although focus may wander, pull it back and re-place it on what you intend to study, or watch, or listen to.”

In the Wild West and other periods of time, when people disagreed they would simply challenge each other to a duel to settle things. It doesn’t look like we’ve ever been able to get away from that mentality. It just costs more now … in time AND money. (Prisons, foods, medical care, etc.)

In life we are constantly receiving things we don’t really want, and often we do not ever receive the things we do want. Sometimes we are told we simply didn’t want it bad enough, or need to learn the art of manifestation … partially true by the way.

Climbing from the pits our familial lines may have fallen in to is a challenge. Lineage designation is a yoke which can be difficult to bear, and is quite frustrating for many. So many of us shout, “This is not the reality I signed up for!” to which I say, “THIS is precisely what you signed up for … the change, the shift has to come from somewhere, from someone, and that someone is YOU.” (Of course, sometimes heritage is something so beautiful one fights in order to keep it).

Innocence is betrayed, over and over again. Through the years people often say, “My hands are tied” or they facilitate further damage … so the wounded child grows and wound after wound accumulates, and they are constantly trying to heal … applying band-aid after band-aid, attempting to keep the wounds from festering. Many choose anti-depressants or other drugs, or they turn to alcohol … anything to numb the pain, and it grows, and festers because soon they simply stop caring at all. When rock-bottom comes and they think they will die, they either do, or they begin a slow journey toward healing, never knowing if they are doing it right … and it hurts, and it gets so hard, yet they continue trying because they’ve realized they really do love life.

After all that, these warriors still have love in their hearts … surprisingly, this love may be at the highest levels once they exit the shit storm. They find there are others who are drawn to them … they sense their healing, even if they do not know of it. When the battle is thought to be won, it is only a beginning. Even when they want nothing more than to sit back in peace and in quiet, it cannot be had … not at all times anyhow, sometimes it seems never again.

They try to determine what existence is, what it means, and find out there is no definitive answer. Variables are different and constantly shifting. Even when variables remain the same, they differ in percentages making up the experience and at any given moment, reality is altered … although from the outside it may appear to be the same.

Who knew life could be so brutal? Sometimes what is thought to be good is actually damaging, and what is thought to be damaging is actually beneficial. It’s all in the present time perspective.

Can one ever calm chaos? My mind says, “Doubtful” and yet in this same mind I see proof of it, periodically, haha. Or is it that one type of chaos is simply replaced by another? Is it possible to live without chaos of any kind? I don’t believe so, for in chaos things chip away, break down, allowing for a sort of rebirth into the new.

Is expansion something humanity ought to be seeking? Is this seeking that which is making humanity so sick, under the guise of something else? Well, I do not know, but personally, previous chaotic situations were not during a seeking of expansion, so maybe chaos simply IS … in many ways, just as there are multiple ways of feeling joy or love.

The question remains, is chaos really necessary?

I should make it easy on myself, I know it is attainable in a couple different ways. What am I trying to be strong for, or trying to stretch my capacity for, holding measure? Why don’t I just shrink? Close off all things and just shrink … Why? Because my whole life I’ve known, “I Am Larger Than Life!” With that, I practice being grateful. Fear, anger, shrinking … not really my gig, done with that.

To remain centered and whole is the goal. Make it easy on yourself and do not do what you once did. Walk away from that which hurts.

Hermetic Philosophy ~ A Brief Intro

Published December 30, 2018 by tindertender

The Substantial Reality: Substance is that which underlies all outward manifestations; the essence; the thing itself. Substantial is actually existing; being real. Reality is true; enduring; valid; fixed; permanent. Under all outward appearances there must always be a Substantial Reality. This is the Law.

Nothing is permanent but Change. Everything is in a constant state of ‘becoming’, or ‘changing’. Nothing endures but change. All of these changing things are outward appearances or manifestations of the underlying power, some Substantial Reality.

Many names have been given this Substantial Reality. Some have called it by the term Diety (many names). Others have called it The Infinite and Eternal Energy, or Matter. The Hermetic name is THE ALL, who’s inner nature is unknowable. THE ALL is Infinite in Time, Eternal.

Something can never become nothing. Everything is THE ALL, yet what is finite and changeable cannot be THE ALL. Per science: Matter is merely interrupted energy, or force … Low vibration, nothing can rise higher than its source.

THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind – as compared to finite life and mind (humans). THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind, the Illumined call it Spirit. What is Spirit? It means “the real essence”. It transcends our understanding.

THE ALL creates the Universe and everything in it mentally, as men do with their own thought forms. There is no subtraction from, or adding to THE ALL. The Universe and all it contains is a mental creation of THE ALL, All = Mind. The Infinite mind of THE ALL is the Womb of the Universe.

Gender does not mean ‘sex’. Sex is merely a material manifestation of gender. Gender means relating to generation, or creation. The idea of a male and female god or creator is a distortion of the ancient teachings. THE ALL is above gender, as it is above every other Law, including those of Time and Space. It is the Law from which Laws proceed, and it is not subject to them. THE ALL is one – the two aspects are merely manifestations in THE ALLs Infinite Mind … the Universe is generated, created and exists.

There are beings with powers and attributes higher than man has ever dreamed of the gods possessing. They were once lower than man, and man will one day be higher than them. This is the Destiny of Man as reported by the Illumined. At the end of the Grand Cycle of Aeons, when THE ALL shall draw back into itself all of its creation, people will go gladly, and they will be able to,know the whole truth of being at one with THE ALL.

Within the Father/Mother mind of THE ALL, mortal children are at home. There is not one who is fatherless, nor motherless in the Universe.

Chance is but a name for Law not recognized. Nothing escapes the Law.

Mind may be transmuted from state to state, degree to degree, condition to condition, pole to pole, vibration to vibration. Transmutation (wisdom) not presumptuous denial (presumption = half truth), is the weapon of the Master. Remember ever the two poles of truth – the Absolute and the Relative. Beware of half truths.

Anything that has a beginning and an end must be, in a sense, unreal and untrue, and the Universe comes under this rule in all schools of thought. It is unsubstantial, non-enduring, a thing of time, space and change.

Truth as Absolute (things as the mind of God knows) and Relative ( things as the highest reason of man understands them).

Transmutation uses Laws against Laws, the higher against the lower, and by the Art of Alchemy transmutes that which is undesirable into that which is worthy, and thus triumph!

Mastery consists not in abnormal dreams, visions and fantastic imagining or living, but in using the higher forces against the lower – escaping the pains of the lower planes by vibrating on the higher. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the Master.

While All is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in All.

If I imagine a man paining on canvas, and there is a nude model posing on a sofa, do these visions have a concept of reality separate from my imagining, or of life as pertains to my mental image? Do they see themselves as alive experiencing reality? Do they have a personal Spirit independent of my thought? The Law of Paradox explains that it is true, viewed from the proper viewpoints.

The Spirit of my Creator is inherent within me, and yet I am not He. The half-truth = I am god. Imagine the characters of a book claiming to be the author. THE ALL is in the earthworm, and yet the earthworm is far from being THE ALL.

The beginning of the creative cycle, THE ALL in its aspect of being, projects its Will toward its aspect of becoming and the process of creation begins. It is taught that the process consists of the lowering of Vibration while a very low degree of vibratory energy is reached, at which point the grossest possible form of Matter is manifested. This process is called The Stage of Involution in which THE ALL becomes involved or wrapped-up in its creation.

This process is believed by Hermetists to have a correspondence to the mental process of an artist, writer, or inventor who becomes so wrapped-up (or rapt with) in his mental creation as to almost forget his own existence and who, for the time being, almost lives in his creation.

Attention is really a mental reaching out or extension of mental energy. Should you wish to know more …

Heed The Messengers

Published December 14, 2018 by tindertender

I feel you move ever so subtly. Should you care even a little, you will never do this again. No one can force you to care, just as you cannot strip the “stubborn” from my mind. Oh yes, for a time it may seem you can … yet sooner or later, you will see the truth.

I should be angry, and for awhile I was. But knowing I deserve peace, knowing I prefer to share it as well, I release the need to be angry, upset, or obsessed with your removal.

Life is gifting me an experience which on a grand scale, I guess you could say, few have had … or at least been able to cope with.

A little less subtle now, you can quit at any time.

Substance abuse (alcohol, drugs) … opens the gateway to the soul, and allows crap to come in, pretending to be cake. If only people knew, they would claim sovereignty and never give up their power.

If only people knew what they do when they break a child’s will, their rebellious nature, forcing them to conform, rather than guiding them to know self-control, and projected use of their senses … for good, for their-self and all others their life touches … near or far, in the circle or outside the circle.

It’s rare, I know, that the indoctrinated breaks free, actually surviving that which attempts to crush their spirit.

Do you realize how many sentient beings are slaughtered every day? They are in-line, waiting their turn for throat slit, watching those before them. They know they are going to die and fear and panic sets in, adrenaline coursing through their veins and their entire body. Do you understand the amount of fear and panic being unleashed into the energetic field of life? That this is what is being physically eaten and breathed?

It is no wonder at the suffering humans unleash into this energetic field they eventually find their own mind, their own life, their personal reality,  affected negatively by it. Yet still, it continues. How long before the truth of it gets through to the mass majority? Will it be too late when it does?

“You’re in my head, my energetic field, but you cannot over-ride my will. The one thing that is most important, has always been. Perhaps you did not know this about me. Perhaps you gave yourself too much credit … got a little cocky.”

Crescendo ~ yes it is happening now. Right brain vs left brain … creativity vs logic. Is there ever a time when right merges with left, actually becoming logical creativity, or creative logic? I think it’s safe to say there is plenty of creative logic going on in the world right now.

Sometimes I wonder if this presence is a blessing or a curse, and other times the answer is quite clear.

“Mind your P’s and Q’s …” meaning “mind your manners”, “mind your language”, “be on your best behavior” or similar. HA! I’ve never been very good at that, minding … but I am getting better at sensing truth, which has tempered my responses in many situations.

Thinking of ‘Santa Claus’ I realize indoctrination into conformity starts very, very young. He knows if you are naughty or nice … so be good. The manipulation of minds starts at birth, in many formats. I suppose for those who desire to control the minds of people this is a perfect way to start, by making the children want to conform so they get a prize. It’s happened to most of us in the USA.

Shadow: Embrace Spirit ~ Reaffirm your connection with the Divine. Remember that the Divine exists in the natural world and Spirit dwells within all.

Soul: Heed the Messengers ~ It’s easy to ignore the messengers and the signs they show, especially when they bring a message you do not want to hear. But now is not the time to ignore the messengers. Do not let fear of change or discomfort silence their voices. Stop procrastinating, see and hear the truth, and do what is necessary. The wisdom the messenger offers is born of your own intuition and need.

Let two be One: Stay strong ~ Life will present you with many trials. It will bring you times of joy, but also times of suffering; like the weather, it can be unpredictable, harsh and cruel. But you can endure all that comes. Know when to resist, and know when to let go. Know that sometimes you will lose, but that loss can make you stronger at the core. Stay strong. You can endure all.

Hidden In Plain Sight

Published December 13, 2018 by tindertender

Form becomes smooth once more. Regeneration is always a mind blow. 

Isn’t it interesting … the minds of humanity are gripped tight by a presence so near it is barely perceptible, and only if one trains their self to notice, or should tragedy throw them there.

Skulls in forest

Suddenly, things are seen and heard which were hidden before … hidden in plain sight.

Mini candy bars keep getting smaller and smaller, while fewer are in each bag, and the price continues to hike. Toilet paper rolls have fewer sheets while the price climbs. Cans of food have gone from 15 oz to 14.5 oz and the price is more. These are just a few of the sneaky rip-offs we’ve been handed.

I am curious to know if there is a recipe for home-made marshmallows.

Often we look outside our self for answers. The Universe conspires to give them, should one really pay attention. Speaking of …

Beautiful, yummy marshmallows

A time comes when the obvious will be known, and the known, plain for what it truly is.

Have people really wanted a ‘forever’ anything? It seems not. Most things nowadays are disposable, not created to last through many decades. It isn’t clear whether this is simply a marketing scheme which forces the continued purchasing of items, or if people simply do not want the same thing for decades.

Renewal seems to be the trend. While ‘renewal’ of the mind is a very good thing, cheaply made items which must be thrown out frequently is not such a prosperous thing … for the average person … for the scammer of countries it is quite a different matter.

With the purchase comes power. Figuring out how to exit this system of waste, of not participating in the robbery of people and the destruction of the earth can be difficult. The last couple generations have been accustomed to the ‘disposable’. Breaking that habit will not be easy, but is necessary, just the same.

Let us be rid of disposable items, disposable relationships, disposable anything … let us bring back the idea of that which is good being cherished, for life.

Creation ~ Mother’s Bucking The ‘System’

Published December 11, 2018 by tindertender

“She drifted aimlessly in the dark void; a dark mist of energy not knowing whether She was awake or asleep. She only knew that she existed. Then, very slowly at first She became aware of a pull on her energy from somewhere else that was attracted to Her and She knew that their coming together was imminent. She was filled with pleasure at the thought of merging with a new energy and felt a new force emerging in her consciousness; the force of LOVE. She and He combined causing them to expand creating Space and Time and the birth of the Universe.” ~ An Ancient creation story.

Our connection to the earth and all life on it started with this first connection, with Divine Spirit. It has remained so throughout history. There are some of course, who classify this connection as a ‘disorder’, not being aware of their own participation, and not giving consideration to those who have extra sensory perception.

The female was once revered as sacred, giver of life. The priestesses led sacred ceremony, maintaining the spiritual well-being of the community. Males honored her. After a time, priests took over the maintenance of the spiritual well-being of the community. Compassion became pity, love became dependence, and spirituality became religion and dominance. Male assertiveness replaced female nurturing, sensitivity and intuition.

As with all things, what comes around goes around. We see in today’s world the rising of the feminine once more. It is clear patriarchy is intense as it tries to hold on to the gains they’ve made over time.

The planet is suffering … all of life has suffered under the influences of greed and need for power. It is time for nurturing once more, and all who live know this to be true. Anyone who is paying attention knows without doubt that a great healing is in order if we are to survive.

All of life, every aspect of it, will come full circle. Not only in the world view, but in the individual life as well. What is given shall be received … ‘Mother’ is bucking the system, and all who have an iota of intelligence should listen, or forfeit everything they hold valuable.

Theory vs Reality

Published November 16, 2018 by tindertender

How many ‘theories’ have been proven as ‘reality’ throughout time?

As we age, thought processes and belief systems change, sometimes just as drastically as our physical appearance. Considering ‘you’ of ten years ago you may be hard pressed to see yourself there … Foods disliked are now liked or rigid beliefs may have had a shift.

Often we are told the far out and unbelievable are only conspiracies spread by those who do not know any better. We do know now that for decades there has been in place employees who intentionally spread disinformation so that those who try to get the word out about some things are slandered, even by those too afraid to look at the information themselves, preferring to remain naive.

https://www.parcast.com/blog/2018/3/26/10-government-conspiracy-theories-revealed-to-be-true

In order for the plan of chaos to work properly, people must be led to believe all allegations are false. Many people just need to be told what to think or believe, and if it sits well within their safe zone, they’ll fight to make it as real as they are told it is. They will attack anyone who puts the illusion at risk.

Too many times it has been proven that different representatives are basically the same, if not at the start, then by the end. Citizens do not want to believe their representatives would lie to them … sadly, many do not want to admit the truth.

Those who speak of chemtrails or geoengineering, or the use of HARRP technology for weather manipulation are slandered and attacked. Some of the attackers are they who refuse to have their comfort zone altered, others, are hired to start the attack, to work up a crowd who refuse to consider possibilities.

At first those who tried to warn people were attacked, but more and more people became suspicious. The claim that the particles sprayed into ‘prolonged contrails’ were being used to confuse tracking devices, or block out the sun was included in the conversations. We can see deniers turned into sharing ‘partial’ truths, just enough truth combined with falsehood to confuse people about the reality. Still, it is easier to have a conversation about ‘cloud seeding’ than ‘prolonged contrails’ with most people. Its easier to attack, dismiss, and forget what some are trying to share.

We live in a world that is for the most part detached from reality. In the comfort of schedules and normalcy relaxation takes over the mind and outside influences ignored.

It is almost the year 2019. Let us hope that whoever takes office in 2020 with put the brakes on and work toward regenerating community in country shared the world over, rather than further division. With division all will be lost, all of it. We should know the direction it’ll go by 2021. Although I’m fairly certain now, and have been since 2015, I still have hope.

Let the ‘theory’ and ‘prediction’ of yore be found to be just that … theory. May ‘reality’ bring us peace and harmony in a world on the mend.

“Bowing to the wild intelligence of your life force, and choosing to respond to the deepest wisdom of your soul, is no longer merely an opportunity for growth, it is the global imperative upon which cultural transformation depends.” – Clare Dubois

Social Terrorism

Published November 4, 2018 by tindertender

It’s tearing our world apart, and it does not require physical violence.

For centuries people have terrorized each other. Man against woman, adult against child, child against child, adult against adult, government against government, government against its very own people. Humans beat each other, kill each other, mentally abuse each other, and even abuse themselves. They butcher and consume animals, they mistreat the animals without care for the harm they do.

This terrorism is bred into society. Governments speak of terrorism daily. It trickles into the minds of all who listen. The pain created by individuals who ‘play the terrorist game’ is absorbed into minds of those who are inflicted upon.

This is learned behavior. Just as children learn from watching their parents, all people learn from watching their ‘leaders’ to gauge what is acceptable, what is deemed appropriate. Governments say it is all about ‘bad people’, but this is what they themselves finance and foster and do in covert ways every day.

It has been talked of, and performed for so long that it has become a normal part of existence. Crimes against humanity have been neglected and approved by so many in the world that it continues, and its intensity grows.

Bullying is more than that … it is social terrorism, and often it is overlooked and ignored.

Domestic abuse is more than that … it is social terrorism, and often, it too, is overlooked and ignored, until someone dies.

Peer pressure is more than that … it is social terrorism, requiring many times that people conform to the ‘accepted rule’ of the few, or ‘bullying ensues’.

This is the behavior of many countries representatives. It is no wonder the average person falls into it as well.

My hope is that people the world over will stop ‘softening’ what is actually going on here and call it for what it is. Stop making bad behavior acceptable, hold people accountable, hold yourself accountable.

It is never okay to stomp on another’s head. You don’t agree with them or their life? Move on, find people who you DO agree with and stop making others miserable. This only shows how miserable of a life you yourself must have.

Being responsible means taking a good hard look at your thoughts and actions. Evaluate the imprint you are putting into this world. Look at it and see whether it is adding to healing in the world, or exacerbating the pain. Adjust accordingly.

If you are of the mind that you would like to facilitate pain and destruction, you will get what you give. If you intentionally, consciously work for healing in this world, you will get what you give …. in this life, or the next. By ‘next’ I mean in Spirit, or your next go ’round in physical form.

The cycle must be broken.
Social Terrorism is NOT okay.
