Is ‘Privilege’ A Real Thing?

Published February 13, 2019 by tindertender

What exactly does it mean to be privileged? Some may say it means to be born into a wealthy family, others may say it is consistent exposure to love.

I’ve been thinking that people either wish to do nice things for others, or they do not. If they do, it does not mean the receiver is privileged, it is a simple gifting and receiving.

The gifter is known either as kind-hearted or selfish. If there are no ‘strings’ attached, then kind … if something is expected in return, then that makes it rather selfish … my view.

Too often in this experience we are given things, kindness and space only for the sake of return, which is expected. This is not really kindness, although many will deny that, saying it is too! Truth is, if the receiver decides not to play the game and return favors, the gift is withdrawn.

Is humanity capable of doing good for others without the need for repayment?

I envision a world where people do for each other, out of kindness and not the need to be repayed … but they will also receive, for this is the way society will work, constantly paying it forward. If a person gives to someone, they may not receive from the same person, rather they may receive from another along the line of folks who choose to reciprocate in a system of sharing and caring.

It is when someone decides to keep, to horde the goods that a sense of lack begins. We can see how this very thing is happening today, it has caused severe lack in many areas of this world.

Release ~ it seems that only a few are accustomed to releasing stuff, and the number of folks capable of truly releasing their hearts into love is decreasing. There has been too much damage done … will we ever be able to turn it around?

Privilege. Can it be considered such if benefit comes from one who has taken from many, horded it, and determined a select few who will benefit? I do not think so, for I see it as a benefit from selfish habits and actions, while others suffer. That isn’t privilege, it’s shameful. And it is a trap for anyone who chooses to play the game.

Watching Over You

Published February 5, 2019 by tindertender

It’s near silent … beautiful silence. Laying my head back, I relax the muscles in my neck. You say I’ve changed, that I’m not the same person you met. Well, I AM the same, you just didn’t ever know me, not like you thought you did. You did not know me before, you cannot possibly know me now.

Those who test us could potentially be our greatest allies.

We are dwelling in bubbles within bubbles within bubbles. It’s easier to say, “This is weird” than it is to say, “My lack of understanding of this is ‘weird'”.

It’s the training I’ve had, one of those ‘habits’ I aim to break. Here I sit at arms length of those in the light. I extend myself as far to them as possible and then I extend the other 1/2 of me toward more dense places, gathering intel.

The Line We Walk

One arm stretched to the light, one arm stretched into the shadow. Perhaps there is another one, doing the same, stretching further into shadow, and another stretching further into the light, and so on, relaying the ‘news’ up and down the stream. These tendrils, these links, are all over the world.

There’s nothing ‘special’ from one link to the next, its relay of information is perfect. Yet, this too has polarity, for what goes up and is received, also moves downward and is received. Two-way streets, everywhere.

I do not care that I cannot remember every thought I’ve ever had. I know it is being recorded on the ‘Akashic Record’ of life. I’ll review it some day. I believe the purpose of life is to gather as many of those thought forms and connections as possible so they can be recorded. This life is a harvesting of experience.

The question then is … Who is doing the harvesting? I could say it is ‘me’ for the purpose of future viewing. Is this a lie we’re all fed upon entering this life? Or is it simple, and true, free choice, awesome experience? (As well as a sometimes disaster of an experience).

Perhaps in our ‘natural’ form we are all actually lunatics.

Trial and error, find out what works and what doesn’t. Do more of the one and less of the other. Both have equal value in that both show, without doubt, what brings benefit and what harms, really allowing knowledge of the truth of it through both avenues, coming and going.

It’s like a tree … one half of its branches carry you to the top, and the other side of its branches allow a coming down … of do’s and don’ts. There is an intensity of both paths that can simulate a tearing down, a breaking up of the old while it is creating the new.

What seems to pull energy and attention from you? What, or who, seems to replenish you? Which direction are you ‘releasing’ precious energy to? Have you become Love … or Slave?

Hope For Accomplishment

Dirty Money

What do you hope to accomplish? I’m not fond of this, if it IS a game … and it must be, because you refuse to explain.

Why is it I cannot remember those AHA moments during a semi-sleep? Why can I not record my thoughts in a sub-conscious state? It doesn’t seem right that you have access to those inner kept secrets, when even I do not.

What is it with all the talk of blasphemy and sacrilege? You really should consider releasing the need, or ‘habit’ of fear mongering.

When you put people in a little box surrounded by fear of failure or rejection, you will forever be surrounded by people who attempt to make themselves small. Perhaps this is what makes you feel big.

Have you ever heard that a king, or boss, is only as good, or as strong as his ‘team’? If you continuously look to create subservient people in your surroundings, your situation will lack strength, the whole of it.

If people do as you say because you provide them with what they need (usually the need is created by the one who longs to manipulate), none of the actions come from a place of true empowerment. This is why kingdom after kingdom falls.

The ‘base’ must be made strong. Without it, failure will happen, again and again. Shift mind-set from one of need, to one of self-reliance, empowerment, and a becoming as family, to the whole. ALL working to see that all others have enough, are safe, and motivated … not out of fear, greed or need of power, but out of a peaceful sharing and genuine caring.

A person is never ‘ready’. You just do it and learn as you go. This is how things are done. Otherwise, you’ll wait and before long, it will be too late to even try.

The fight is beginning to be something else. The argument isn’t an argument. Stating facts does not mean it’s a fight, it simply is what it is and truth cannot be denied. Of course that doesn’t mean people won’t try and spin stories to try and refute the truth.

In today’s world, the longer we know someone, the more willing we are to look past some of the hurtful things they do, that we do. So immersed in the experience it becomes difficult to see some of the things that are done without thought or care for others. Stepping back, away from situations, observing quietly, we can see people being who they are at heart, forgetting, or not really caring about creating a good impression upon others, or leaving a lasting impression of goodness in the world.

What is your energetic imprint?

It is a sick society which takes credit for other peoples work and ideas. Give credit where credit is due. Do so joyfully! Imagine a world which is full of people pointing out the great accomplishments and abilities of others. Not because they have to, or because they are looking for ‘brownie points’, but because it is amazing what people are capable of! There are so many wonderful creations of good, and benefit for all living beings.

Do you think it is possible to be free?

Hitting a hard ‘reset’ in life is not the easiest thing to do. Yet, for most of humanity it is a much needed, a desperately needed, reality. It will cause many ‘short circuits’ and many lives lost. The human mind has been in darkness for a very long time. Reset will be painful. It will not be pretty. It will look and feel like chaos. The world will appear to have gone mad.

“Recognize that sometimes things we don’t want to do must be done.”

Nothing good is born out of untruth. Honesty automatically grows goodness, unless it is a blankety blank, blank, blank.

I’m not much for telling people what to do, so … it’s up to you.

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.

Sharing Is Caring

Published December 3, 2018 by tindertender

The tavern, bar, pub – whatever you call it, wherever you are, it is a place of sorrow, loneliness, anger, frustration and pain wearing a mask of happiness. I know, for I spent some time there, surrounded by others who were experiencing what I was also.

It seemed that life was a series of running to the edge, pushing limits as far as possible, testing them to see just how far I could go without going over the edge, until I did. At that time I met many others who had transitioned and were still in such a place, in shadows. They were seeking help to be free of it. I sat with them and asked them to explain why they were there, and the answer came from one with authority, “Because they are too bad”.

I’ve been thinking of this recently, examining my own life. Often when people find themselves trapped in the cycle of cruelty, receiving it, or giving it, it is because they themselves are suffering and in pain. Most will never admit it if they dare to look deep into their hearts, they’ll instead act tough and continue the cycle, creating hurt wherever they go, sometimes not even aware they are doing it, it becomes second nature.

Alcohol … it is poison and is only good as a disinfectant, or use in making tinctures for medicine in combination with nature’s finest herbs. It was never meant to be utilized as has become the norm. At least this is my inner conclusion when I sit with my senses.

I also understand that those in these places, on earth and in the shadow land, for the most part are not bad people, or spirits. They are suffering, a pain that cannot be comprehended for they are too close to it for understanding. Often it is a trauma that either takes their life and sends them beyond, or snaps their minds out of the cycle so they are able to see clearly once more, or at least then have opportunity to study the past and work toward making sense of the experiences.

Atoning for pain sent into the world … how does one do it? I compare it to all of the cigarette butts I threw out as a smoker. Young, never understanding the concept of biodegradable … heck, that word only recently came into my awareness, within the last decade. When I walk in the forest and see them I pick them up, one by one, and hope that I’ll be able to pick up as many, and hopefully more, than what I threw out over time, garbage too … cups, wrappers …

This is the time to prove to myself, and any benevolent spirits who are watching, that I can be as good at creating peace and loving and compassion in this world as I ever was at creating turmoil. My hope once again is that I will create more loving memories and good feelings than I ever did the opposite, being a powerful contributor for positive experience for all.

There is indeed much suffering in shadow land while they continue to live in the cycle they left behind on this earth. The good thing is there is still opportunity to make choice, to set the beer down, to remain in the corner and just watch … rather than participate. And hopefully there will come a time when they will be able to walk out of that dingy place into the light of day, warm, and free.

There needs to be an overall healing of soul before this can happen. Admitting there’s an issue, seeing it for the first time, studying the behaviors, what caused them in the first place and learn how to undo the knots that were tied in the heart of spirit. The desire to change must come first, usually preceded by a tiredness of hearing oneself say and do the same old things, over and over again, having the same experiences.

Of course there will be those who cannot face the trauma. They have felt alone their whole existence and buried their sorrow in drink, or in drug, or some other thing that took the mind off that pain. Too often people replace pain with a different pain, rather than doing the hard work to heal.

Sure it’s easy to shout out and blame someone else, it is easy to snarl and frown and throw our pain in the face of others, too hurt and immersed in the core of it to notice or care that we are potentially putting others where we currently stand … and then they too will need to try and climb out of that pit. Exacerbation … continuing cycles … of our choosing.

I ask Spirit why they kept saving me, why is it so important that I remain living. It could be that I needed to find my way, to share the experience and perhaps help someone who is looking for a way out themselves.

Talk is talk, I can share my experience but whoever wants betterment must walk the walk, no one can walk it for them. I am still on my own journey.

Oh yes, I’ve experienced what some call ‘tough love’ and I’ve also experienced a lack of love, and fortunately through it all there has been support, mostly from the unseen. You can say I have a family so big even I am unaware of its vast nature, or you can say it is my inner fortitude. Either way, whatever way, if it is not hurting anyone, including yourself, and if it works, giving you strength to rise, it is perfect.

Negative self talk: it begins with others views and opinions of us. We hear them and we may believe them, or not. If not, and the same criticisms are repeated enough, it becomes rote, the little pathways in the mind are set. The memories of the words live there and repeat, and repeat, and repeat. Depression or anxiety or complete self destruction can occur, a breakdown.

These words, these memories of what others have told you, they do not belong to you … release them, give them to your ancestors who have come before you, anyone who you know loves you in the Spirit realms, or send them back to the people who gave them to you.

Retrain your mind. When a memory of drama or trauma begins to spin in your consciousness, recognize it, acknowledge it, and determine what it is you will allow to be there. Override that memory with something beautiful, positive, supportive and loving. Every time … do this, and you will find that the old ‘thought highways’ in your mind disappear and new paths are made, ones you’ve personally chosen, ones that affirm and support the Divinity in you. Claim your Sovereignty.

Habits are learned through training. We accept them from others, we incorporate them into our life trying to ‘fit in’ or ‘gain approval’, perhaps searching for that which we’ve never had before. Habits are also meant to be broken, every single one of them. In so doing we train our mind (some call it ego). We let it know that our higher consciousness is in charge and will only allow what is personally deemed acceptable.

Honestly, I know it’s hard, seemingly impossible. Many have died without even trying, or without even being aware of the possibility to lay claim to their own authority.

You are the only one you will spend the rest of your life with. Become the love of your life, not in arrogance, but as someone who is cherished as the most important being in your world. From this place, a great gift of compassion can be shared with others.

It is not an easy task. Some quit, thinking it easier to drown out the pain with substance. But it is so worth it … gift yourself, yourself. Love you like you deserve to be loved, like you have always deserved to be loved. Fill up your heart and mind so full of this love that it spills over into the world … it is going to be so beautiful! You’ll be amazed at what begins to show up in your life when you’ve done this work.

Memorable Sound

Published October 18, 2018 by tindertender

I had the blessing of attending one of Matthews sound baths last night. There is something about a mans voice when he sings, and the sound of Matthews voice is quite wonderful. I love that he tones, and does not use words to muddle the ‘message’.

While there I met 2 friends from the town I once lived in, they drove an hour or so to be there. I also met 2 friends who live nearby, they were there facilitating entry. It was very nice to see 4 of my friends at this small gathering. Just goes to show the ‘world’ in which I belong and participate in, and the circle of friends who do as well.

Honing Senses While Blinded

Published August 7, 2018 by tindertender

Water, clear, covering sand slightly. It moves to and fro as the tide moves, ripples appear across the sand as it too moves with tide.

Blind, she walks though life building her senses. She learns to see, even without eyes. She listens intently, she stills her own mind as she observes the flow.

There are those who understand fully, as she comes into comprehension. They stand by, patiently waiting for her to bloom.

As the earth, and so many dwelling here suffer, she is amazed at the numbers who are still unable to look past their own experiences, seeing the whole. She understands there is so much more to consider than her own discomfort.

She pulls her thoughts from those who would possess them. She claims her attention, and places it where she determines it will go, and not where others would pull it.

Glorious being, you see now more clearly than ever before. They thought they had blinded you by taking your sight, by numbing your senses, but you only grew in your ability to feel. The inner knowing of you has begun to shine brightly, piercing through the darkness they wrapped your mind in.

Your beauty glows like the stars of the night, embraced by the moon, guiding all in need of you, showing them the way while they still cannot see. Your steadiness is a beacon for them, and it ignites their inner fire allowing them to assist in the lighting of the path once it is known to them.

Your strength and courage on this journey has assisted so many, grateful are all who experience your presence, even while they sometimes deny it.

Thank you.
