Strength In Compassion

Published April 3, 2018 by tindertender

The past will always attempt to lure us back into it. Memories take us there where old habits remain, continuously we must choose to stay in change, rising above them. Even those memories which included love … for if we hold tight to them, the door shuts to future possibilities.

True care and compassion must be nurtured, just as the little one in need. It is our responsibility to heal the inner child, and then we will be better equipped to reach into the world and offer assistance elsewhere.

A mother who has been damaged beyond repair clings to life as her young one clings to her neck. We must be willing to step in and provide relief. One day it may be us that requires relief and if we do not give, we will  not be able to receive.

It all takes effort, and choice. Being vulnerable is quite courageous, all the while embracing others who share their vulnerabilities. In so doing, true strength arises, which otherwise would never be,

Clean Water

Water residue.jpgFor one and a half years I’ve been distilling my water from the faucet. The residue left over was absolutely disgusting! Last week the brown gunk has turned into a light yellowish residue. In my water bill there was a warning of lead pipes and offer of free lead testing kits. I ordered the kits and have doubts as to the severity of lead in the pipes. More concerned am I as to why for a year there was a thick putrid residue left from distillation, and now all of a sudden there is a significant decrease in it.

The top picture shows the residue left from the beginning of my distillation days up to about a week ago.

I have filtered through a Brita tap filter, distill it and filter through activated charcoal filter, and now filter once more before drinking. Although people would have me believe it is the pipes, I know better … I’ve seen the change, and I have not re-plumbed the house. It looks like the treatment plant is stepping up the work they should have been doing all along.

I’m doing my best to thrive in this poisoned world, as those we pay to keep us safe fall short of their duties. Awareness is key, action is a must. Relying on others to tend our health is a big mistake.

A Spiritual Warrior

Published March 9, 2018 by tindertender

The questions I have tend to lose meaning once they are formed into words. There are so many of them when viewed from a wide awareness, I really don’t feel too much like asking.

Spiritual Warrior

Making conscious choices that create balance … it seems easy enough when said, but actually making the choice consistently is more difficult. Does this make a person weak, or only show that they are human? Being a spiritual warrior is a big responsibility. All too often the ease of selling ones self short prevails … but we have been chosen as the embodiment of the Scared in this world, to be the best ‘we’ that we can possibly be … be ready, respect yourself, have courage, believe in your purpose.

Relinquishing control and allowing others to assist can be a challenge. All too often it is easier to ‘just do it ourselves’. This, however, creates a barrier, and shuts off the possibility of greater good.

Finding joy in the trivial tasks can be quite elusive … washing the car, cleaning the closet, readying the garden, mowing lawn, painting, meditating … yet it is the stillness of mind while doing these tasks where peace is found, and larger ‘chores’ which lay ahead are outlined and planned in the subconscious.

Get busy. End self destructive habits and embrace the fullness that is within. A crisp awareness is going to be needed where you’re headed, so start now.

Searching For The Way Amidst Destruction

Published March 3, 2018 by tindertender

28 to 14 to 7, even numbers must be the layout. Looking for the path there are no signs, obscure numbers are key to finding the way, 46 always means one, and 70 always means another. All items laid out on the table, categorized by type and size.

Eyes burn as I try to keep them open. Drinking water from a plastic cup, I taste it and wonder why I’m not using the steel drinking container instead.

I turn on sound and still my mind. Dream life is so active, there is no real rest. The only stillness I receive is the stillness I create during waking hours. They say there is no rest for the wicked, but I say there is little rest for those who seek the path … the path to the finish, the end of the line, where peace lives.

There’s a tension in my subconscious, I can feel it there. Sitting straight in my chair I begin minor stretches, releasing it and relaxing what I woke with. But first I yawn and wipe my tired eyes. I bow my head into my hands and close my eyes, keeping my palms over them as I rest.

Looking around me as I stand in this crater, I see mounds of blackened earth surrounding me. I search for a path but all I see is a charred and darkened mass, tangled, no obvious entry into the way out. This area isn’t only dark and charred, but there is a sliminess to it as well, a dampness.

I remember walking in the forest and seeing the huge tree which had been bent as a little shoot and trained to grow a certain way, a marker and sign of the direction to follow. I try to remember if there is any of this in my surroundings, I cannot remember anything but the tangled mess. Details … these must be paid attention no matter where we find ourselves, for what seems impossible will show minor clues missed by the average eye.

There is one who attempts to steer me through, yet if he knew the way he would be long gone by now, listening to him is a waste of time and effort, although he would have me believe otherwise.

Disruption of what is, a meddling of the placement of things, a greedy claiming of them and lining up of the items to show to others leave an empty space where they ought to be and all signs of connection lost, or so it appears.

This seems to be the events of this current world. A constant taking without consideration for the whole, the health of the system which keeps chaos out of order. We can clearly see the affect it is having on the world, and all life which it holds. Harmony has been distorted, nearly eliminated, yet there are those who work diligently to bring balance back to the system.

Empty consumerism without thought for the parts and their source is blind living, a disconnect from consciousness and the importance every single one of us has on the health and continuation of this existence. There must be a shift of awareness, an awakening to the underlying cause of this fragmentation. Only then can we slow this destruction and mend what has been so egregiously damaged.

Care and a conscious placement of intention is key to health, to true wealth, to brotherhood and sisterhood, to the world family. Rather than focusing on who can eliminate who, and who can do it more quickly, those who wish for peace must rise and overcome these tendencies.

It really is up to the average person to do so. Current systems have proven they are not capable of this consideration. Stop. Look around. Take note of the damage done.

Searching For Purpose In Life

Published February 14, 2018 by tindertender

Looking at a situation, we are able to determine what needs to be done in order to improve the workings of a thing. We evaluate, and then follow up with the steps it takes to make the desired change.

People often wonder what their purpose in life is. Wondering around in somewhat of a daze this is probably the most asked question.

Galaxy

What if our birth here is no accident? What if we knew exactly the state of the world and where it was headed … what if we chose to come here at this time in order to make a difference, to make adjustments in the way things are in order to affect change that will alter the course of humanity, for all life on earth?

It is no easy task, it is not something the faint of heart decides to do. We came here knowing full well the dangers that awaited us, we knew we would face trials that might not be successfully passed. Even though it is extremely difficult to make it through this maze of harm and hurt, to overcome the self doubt imposed on us from childhood … here we are.

Those who wish to end life as we know it … that experience we have enjoyed at times in our own history … are working very diligently to do just that. It is our responsibility to counteract that destructive behavior.

All too often people are convinced that the way to make things better is through violence, through creating a destructive power so great that the ones holding the most destructive power would be the leader in peace.

It is comical, this logic.
It would be laughable were it not so deadly and dangerous.

conforming

Institutional learning has taught very well how to follow orders, how to do as we are told. From early on we learn how to ‘stay within the lines’. It becomes natural to do the bidding of another as we age, and graduate into other realms of being. We forget what it is to think outside the box.

Even those who exercise their creative mind are still following the desired path of someone else. When did we lose the ability to determine what is good, and clean, and beneficial? When did we become so geared to function for the sake of money alone? It seems the lesson here has been that life without money is no life at all.

We see how whole sections of humanity are forced into extreme poverty and starvation, their lives manipulated in such a way that survival is near impossible. This breeds need, and is followed by aggressive behaviors where people just decide they’ll take what they want, forgetting completely the methods and tools another must have also, not caring for their life.

The compassion born in a man and a woman is stripped from them as they face these challenges they swore to change upon birth, upon entry to this world. Getting caught up in all the mess it is forgotten … we are here to assist each other, to lift each other up … not just the few who deem themselves mighty, but all people, all life.

Impossible odds

This sacred world we live in is under attack, we accepted the challenge of making it right again, yet that oath was forgotten. Do you remember now … is it coming back to you?

Stepping out from the pain of rejection and desire, we must learn to see the bigger picture … life is not just about us personally, it is about the whole. Until we see it, and begin to behave in a manner which recognizes this fact, change will be impossible.

All of humanity is under a spell of a sort. When it is recognized, people will understand that we cannot blame someone for  their rejection, or for speaking harshly to us, or even for being used as a tool of destruction.

Stepping out of the box and viewing life from a different angle we can see the truth of the matter, and then proceed according to original plan. Imagine what Inner You is saying right now …

Digging deep within

In Battle, Seeking Assistance

Published February 2, 2018 by tindertender

“Is she ready?”, “No, she isn’t ready yet.” Our brothers are in a situation … they find themselves ‘stuck’ and they seek assistance.

Assistance … as in being carried out of this world … but what if she likes it here? What if she plans on coming back ~ if the planet isn’t destroyed, that is.

world-unity

What if this is the true reason the planet is in so much jeopardy. What if ‘brothers’ just need to be released … do you suppose the damage will stop being done? Do you think people will be able to suddenly relax and let go of this mania?

There are deep issues no one is talking about, and those who do are ridiculed and slandered, even killed.

This has been a solo battle for quite some time, for people are in denial. Perhaps they are frightened, or simply so brainwashed they cannot see, no capacity for widened mind, open to receive, open to sharing, to caring.

It IS changing however, an uproar has begun. It is looking like the snowball effect is a current event, growing as days pass. Either we allow the ruination of the world, or we work together … to help “we” … so we can continue on, in peace.

Choice is, and always has been, ours. Power is given to others through an allowing of the people ~ the majority. Perhaps it is time for reclaiming this power, and utilizing it as we have dreamed it would be.

Perhaps it is WE who are the savior of this world … if we choose to be involved in a matter kept secret, if we choose to tune in and discover what must be done, if we decide that no one on this earth knows better than we, for we are ALL connected to this same consciousness which needs to be free.

Nonsense Making Sense

Published December 14, 2017 by tindertender

Just Ask

It doesn’t have to make sense, any of it. Those who are doing the best they are able, with care not to harm others, are bathing in honor. This invisible bath often goes unrecognized by the bather, and unmentioned by those who notice it.

Often times when good deeds are seen, they are not commented on, for when too much attention is given to them, those who do little, look bad. (Now) and when I was younger I would come into a job and work so hard. I was fast and accurate, giving 110% and put all of my focus and ability to whatever task was at hand, always pushing myself. A co-worker once drew me aside and told me to slow down, that I was making the group look bad. I thought silently that this was just the way it would be, for I did not have it in me to be less, so that others, resting in this mode, would look better. I still don’t.

There are many people who are comfortable in a state of mediocrity. They want to put forth minimal effort while reaping the reward for success. The issue with this, is that while less is being done, more people need to be hired, hence, there goes opportunity for wage increases and promotion. Hard work is beneficial to all who are willing to team up and get it done.

All pieces of the puzzle, whichever format it may take, are crucial to the end result, none being more important than the other. So while it may sometimes make no sense at all, stepping back and looking at the larger picture, the beauty of it is apparent at all times.
