Calling On The Light

Published December 13, 2018 by tindertender

“Shake me into wakeful gratitude.

As I remember how to merge with you.

How to be embraced by you.

How to know that I am you.

And In my remembering

Love me in my letting go.”

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.

Breaking Free

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.

The Living Nursery

Published December 8, 2018 by tindertender

What does it mean to be a “living nursery”?

In my thinking it means to be an example of what is good, showing those in spirit, who are waiting to be born, what positive creation is and how to do it.

New souls are born every day. Upon arrival a sense of amnesia covers their consciousness, so these ‘lessons’ are in the deep reservoirs of the subconscious.

In body, the examples of humanity are pretty much in our face. The emotion of all experiences can throw the conscious awareness for a loop while the lessons stored in subconscious, from before birth, are buried even deeper … covered by pain, or what we perceive society deems as acceptable.

Braving these life ‘storms’ is the most courageous thing we can do. Embrace your creativity, do not allow anyone to impose restrictions upon your freedom to manifest what your heart sees as good.

If it does not cause harm to another, if it brings benefit to life and to the world, do it … be brave … trust yourself.

Your actions not only have sway in the seen world, but in that of the beyond as well. Put your best foot forward, you are a teacher … here to show all of life, in all of its forms, what works, and what doesn’t. Walk as though the fire of differing experiences in this world does not burn you.

The unmanifest, learning from the manifest. The manifest, learning everything over again, as though it is all new … which it is, since forgetfulness is the first gift this life gives.

Claiming Control ~ Power of Choice

Published December 1, 2018 by tindertender

“You do not know who they are. Neither do I. It’s one thing we have in common. Perhaps one thing you deny.”

This is the phrase that came to mind as I drove across town and into the next.

On my journey home I looked over the rail that separates the freeway and the city streets. There was a huge building there and on the side of it, facing the freeway, it said in BIG BOLD LETTERS Distillery of Spirits. I thought about that for awhile, wondering why … and who … named alcohol ‘spirits’.

When a person has too much to drink sometimes they black out. This is a tell tale sign of the goodness in them stepping aside, for it cannot stand the mess the body experiences during these times. This allows room for ‘spirits’ to enter and take over for awhile. When friends, or others tell of the actions or words spoken in these experiences it seems impossible, for often these behaviors are far from the actual person living this life … and it is because it isn’t them.

People are amplifiers of the Spirit Energy. When anger is fostered in the mind and heart, these things are what is amplified. If love and compassion are cultivated in mind and heart, then this is what is amplified.

You may have heard the story of an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, warring for control of the minds of men (and women, and even children). This is truth in the sense that there is indeed an invisible battle for the mind. The only way to combat this is to be aware, to fortify caring thoughts and control what you will allow in mind, in heart, in action.

Often in this life we are told we do not have control, that life is determined by fate, or destiny. We are told that we are at the mercy of our Savior, and should we not properly believe in Him, we are threatened with eternal damnation.

Understand that you have control … of your thoughts, of your actions, and the way you treat others and yourself. Giving up your sovereignty has been the goal of string-pullers, manipulators. They want you to admit, and then believe, that you are powerless. This is so far from the truth.

Being powerful does not mean putting your thumb on others, imposing your will on them, allowing them to thrive should they do your bidding, or crush them should they not. No … being powerful means being responsible for yourself and choosing what is righteous, without need for recognition or praise or people who ‘follow’ you. It means giving without need for return. It means allowing others to make their own mistakes without judgement … possibly sharing experiences of your own, should they be open to it.

Lead by example … practice humility … count your blessings.

While I hear you speak about one, I speak to many. I pose the suggestion that rather than a pin-pointed focus on one, let the focus go wide, and see the all …. BE the all.

You may have also heard the phrase, “practice makes perfect”. Let new habits form, but only through conscious effort and choice, which benefits all life, including self.

Only when you are able to admit you have control will you be able to make positive change. Only when you choose this as part of the new you, will the new you show up.

Present In This Silence

Published November 27, 2018 by tindertender

You say that I have changed, that I am not the same as I once was. You are mistaken. I am exactly as I once was, the only difference being I have added to it, I have grown, I have become more than I was before.

Distraction, you have supplied plenty of, will not hinder this growth, this expansion of self. I refuse to remain in a little box, stagnant and only listening to what you would like me to. No, I will stretch my wings until the day I die, then I will fly.

Silently, yet quite clear, a suggestion is made.

“You’ve got to let it go! If you don’t, they’ll keep jerking you around. Speak to me. The one who always hears but chooses not to fill your head with clutter, leaving room for you to interpret the world using your own capacity without interference. Rather than talk to them, talk to me. Put yourself on that path of long ago. See the trail, see the road. Visualize the conversation, and then have one.”

The one who supports you makes suggestions and does not demand … respects your freedom and does not enslave you … loves you for your uniqueness and does not insist you change to please them … reflects the goodness in you when your eyes gaze deeply into their own, and makes it easy to see how pure and spectacular you’ve always been, and always will be.

Bringing peace to a fearful world, to a fearful mind … there is no greater responsibility.

How do you eliminate fear? How do you eliminate greed and the struggle for power, or dominance?

This work is personal. Love cannot be demanded of others, just as a change of personality cannot be forced upon anyone. Those times are gone.

The future is space where all people will be free, working together for the benefit of the whole. There will be suffering and pain along the way. There are those who will never choose to be anything but harmful to their fellow man, or animals, or toward the earth. This change, this shift, will require a sort of cleansing … and by this I mean, those who choose to live by the sword will die by the sword until there aren’t any people left who choose that path.

Do you suppose the time is near when people will decide that killing and fear mongering is not the profession of choice? It seems more and more people are hopping on the war train. But perhaps this is the crux of the situation … many will fight, until the fighting ends.

Choice … it seems simple enough.

Individually, we are creators of our life. Collectively, we choose to assist each other or to use and abuse each other, creating circumstances which have potential for rebound … rebound of the positive, or of the negative.

Some ‘leaders’ are fine with the suffering of the people, as long as they are feared. Again, it comes back to fear, that pesky destroyer of families, of culture, of life.

I watch as people project their energies into whatever cause someone else dictates … war, behavior and decisions made by others, beliefs and religions, diet and dress, speech and mannerisms. Humanity moves about listening to these suggestions and then … just as a youngster who longs to be part of the ‘in crowd’ they take action for whatever they think will bring them acceptance, or some sort of respect.

Too often the energies poured into the agenda of someone else is not honored. C’mon, people die for someone else’s ideals … Losing their own life before they’ve even had a chance to discover the depths of their own hearts, or see the hidden pools of yumminess in their own eyes when peering at their reflection.

This is called ‘stolen life’ by the puppet master … who is not a master at all. The true ‘master’ is the one who encourages each individual to become master of his or her own mind, heart, spirit, and soul.

Look at your life. See who is pulling your strings, take back your power. Own it. The creation of the future, the one you will be reborn in to (believe it or not), is your choice. Beauty? Or shit.

And remember, wealth of any kind cannot be horded, for eventually all things will be redistributed, and the experiences one provides for others will become their own.

Going Deep

Published November 25, 2018 by tindertender

The mind expands, so full of, seemingly … everything. Awareness embraces the elements ~ water, air, earth, fire … it embraces possibilities as they enter the field of thought.

The effort to purposefully open consciousness in order to receive information can be a tricky balance between sanity and ultimate confusion. Doing so will provide access to those “aha” moments as well as those who despise the blessing of the “aha” onto humanity. One must be prepared for this and remain strong while the fingertips of the unseen play with the mind.

Discernment … how does one become good at it? Often the senses, those inner strings which are toyed with, allow a trigger to be activated … flight, strong stance or fight, a going to, and a turning from … these ‘skills’ can only be honed in the midst of experience.

Often life gives us things which we deem as unpleasant, yet these very things work out to be our greatest blessings … in hind-sight … although we’d swear the opposite during the most intense moments.

That which has kept the innermost portion of a man, a woman, separate from each other is breaking down. We find that our attention is being focused in many areas at once, aware of so much more that what is within the four outer walls … of the flesh, of the house, of the country.

Our emotions are amplified as we take note of the hidden, as we realize life as we’ve known it has been but an illusion.

The question then is how do we undo the training received and actually help one another? How do we release the need to safeguard our personal spaces and open up to facilitate healing?

While those intent on harming life will be successful, causing pain, the balance will be shifting, and when balance is met, even tipping to the opposite of what we’ve known, the harm will begin to decrease and peace will begin to grow, quickly becoming normalized.

Those brave souls who do this work are the most courageous of humans, for they risk everything in order to gain this balance … for the benefit of all life.

As you sit in meditation, or simply in a still space, in silence, absorb the thoughts which pass by, have the aha moment, go deep into this world and pull forth from it the things which will assist in expansion … of thought, of understanding, of compassion, of care and of love.

When we see that our emotions are the same as others, when we understand that all of humanity wishes to be recognized, understood, loved, and blessed with a sense of honor for that which they contribute, no matter how detailed, then we begin to know fully how alike we truly are. When this happens, we can look at someone and see their argument, their frustration, their joy … it is exactly as we have experienced during life, at differing times.

Fear, pain and the shriveling of self they cause are similar for all as well. Some are able to fortify and pull up, while others are more vulnerable (children and those who have suffered since the dawn of innocence). Rather than saying to those they should buck up, man up, woman up, it is imperative that we instead assist in the healing … especially if we are some of those who are among the first who are able to firm up.

The depths of our being are intertwined. It is quite truthful in that when one suffers, we all suffer. It may not be apparent in the visual, but it will affect all life as the ripples of the situation will forever expand and mesh with all other experiences.

Why does it seem the negatives are so much more powerful that the positives? Why does fear and pain seem to override joy and love? Why does war seem to overtake peace?

The reason behind the imbalance is quite simple … the negatives in life are promoted. They are promoted by governments, by television programs (movies and news), and by those who follow through with the ‘programming’.

Those who are awakening to the larger reality are often drugged and labeled as having a ‘mental’ issue, simply because our health care system is not equipped with knowledge or understanding. They are trained in symptom management only. Thankfully they are, and my hope is that they will rise to take their knowledge one step further, into that of true understanding of the union between the seen and the unseen.

Truth can cause anxiety and/or depression … once the workings of our current system are seen and understood, they cannot be forgotten.

The more we choose to ‘fight’ something, the greater energy needed to maintain the fight, for the energy dumped into it only makes it stronger. I am surprised more people do not understand this.

“It takes a strong man to go into battle, it takes an even stronger man to walk away from one.” The one who decides to stay and fight is doing their perceived duty, protecting that which is seen in need of protection. The one who walks away sees that the energy is being harvested, manipulated, and utilized to increase the warring. And while they walk away from the fight, they are attacked by their fellows because of it, so they are inwardly fighting a resistance to those who would manipulate them, and to those who have been convinced that fighting is the only way to be, the only way to survive.

It’s a double whammy for certain. Many folks in this world are battling two enemies, in fact, we all are. We struggle against peers who would steer us, we battle against the unseen manipulator who would have us destroy each other, and our self. We work diligently to manage our thoughts, to maintain control of the emotions rather that letting the emotions control us.

This life is indeed a battle, a battle for our sanity, for our ability to love our self and others, for control. In this control wars are fought, lives are lost, people starve … for food, for love, for acceptance, for encouragement, for recognition.

Stop the fight. BE you, BE whole, it is yours already. Stop allowing others into your mind, shut the door on their permissions for manipulating your thoughts and actions. It is but a game, a dangerous game … step out from it into the freedom inherently yours.

As you step away from the perpetrated drama, you will begin to see more clearly, from the outside. You will view the world as those who remain fighting crush each other, mentally, physically. You will see how they manipulate situations in their ability to live, and to thrive. You will see how they take … and only give when there is something greater to be gained. You will watch them as they destroy each other.

Being part of the destruction will not stop it. The only thing which will stop it is a non-participation in it.

Do you foresee a future where people will take note of it and act upon it? Do you think humanity is strong enough to withstand those who would destroy them? Do you think those who wage destruction will eliminate each other rather than eliminating the whole?

Are we willing to do our part, stepping back and preparing the tools (inner and outer) which will be needed to assist in bringing healing to those who leave the fight?

It is unfortunate that so many in this world make a game of war. It IS a game, one in which they are paid handsomely for … with money, washed in blood, while those who give the orders feast on warriors death and stolen power.

Who better to teach them than those who have already walked the path and are now in the unseen worlds providing influence for continuation? Continuation of death, and pain, and destruction which fuels their energy collection, and therefore their continued life … vicariously through our own, and the collective suffering of the world.

It has become quite clear humans are very good at destroying each other … mentally, emotionally, physically. Are we just as good at promoting health and care and wellbeing? Only WE can answer that question, should we wish to know the answer well enough.

These negative influences must be ended, they must be denied should humanity and all other life have a chance at true love and gracious living.
