Triangle
came to visit last night, two rows … inverted, and erect, points facing each other, gap nearly closed.

Inverted = female, Erect = male.

“Numerologically speaking, if One represents force, and Two represents an opening, then Three is the birthing of true wisdom.”

Much ado has been created about the meaning of it all. The whole of union has been bred as taboo in the minds of the people, when in fact, it is what holds us together.

We see in current circumstance what falling away from the truth of it has meant for our life. Division has been purposefully fostered by those who desire to wield power, for in this union is greatest strength.

Those wearing greed for hearts cannot have the greater population knowing their secrets for strength, for they would lose control … something they will fight for with every ounce of energy they have. The energies they use to keep us separated come from the energies we pour forth while fighting each other … situations which are created by them for this vampiric purpose.

Energy is stolen by a tried and true technique: Upset and turmoil created specifically for the upsetting of an individual, or on a larger scale, whole groups of people. (9/11; public mass shootings; etc). These things are carefully orchestrated for the sole purpose of siphoning energy from living souls … this energy is then used to perform certain deeds, and to maintain power and control. An experienced vampire can shift from one behavior to another in seconds.

Desperation is at hand while our truest union is delayed by those in power. They suck the force from us when we respond in an ‘outraged’ manner to their planned ‘events’, created for the purpose of draining us of the strength needed to overturn what has been done.

Remain calm … be aware of what is happening … retain your energetic power. Rather than spewing it out in shock and confusion, behold the reality of the circumstance, and then utilize your inner power for the healthy transformation in the whole of the world.

The Days Experience

Published July 1, 2018 by tindertender

On the way to Salem to enjoy the World Beat Festival I stopped at the rest area. There was a woman there with a sign and a starving dog. Literally every bone in his body could be felt when I petted him although one couldn’t tell by looking, he was fluffy. I used the restroom and came back out gifting her a few dollars. I saw she had a little zip-lock of food for her dog, yet he wasn’t getting to eat it. She asked that I pray for her, that she was about to ‘lose it’. I only hope that this poor pooch doesn’t die in the process of her getting her life together.

I continued on down the road thinking of how much suffering there is in the world, for the people, for the animals. I prayed that one day, driving by a farm, I would see whole families of cattle and chickens and pigs and such, and that there would be an end to humans need of flesh eating. The cows were standing in the pasture but I knew their fate and it saddened me.

Looking at the clock on my dashboard I saw it had just turned 11:11. “New beginnings” … https://willowsoul.com/blogs/numbers/5-reasons-why-you-are-seeing-11-11-the-meaning-of-1111http://www.intuitivejournal.com/1111-a-conscious-spiritual-journey/.

Several more miles down the road I reached my destination. I was fortunate to find parking right away, being Sunday there was no fee. I only had to walk a couple blocks to the waterfront where the festival was gearing up.

Once inside the gate I went straight for the Kathmandu booth for a friend had mentioned the great deals they were giving. I bought a dress, a skirt, a wonderful silver ring with beautiful stone and … finally! … I got myself a Hemp hat!

I saw a booth selling cheesy nachos. It had been quite awhile, so I figured, “What the heck!” And bought a little plate of them. As I walked along, munching away, I heard drums … BIG drums. I stopped to listen. It was a group of people playing those huge Japanese drums! Their arms were flying … boom, boom, boom! Similar to this but fewer drummers, and of course, outside. Beautiful!

I turned and walked some more, stopping at another booth for a Huckleberry ice cream cone. So delicious!

I came upon people from India doing a prayer/dance. Their clothing was so colorful! There was a young girl and boy performing what looked to be a courtship dance, then the whole family came on floor and they danced in circle, what appeared to be celebration! (This caused me to sit and watch Indian wedding ‘first dances’ for some time this evening).

Next I came to folks who said the drumming they did was of African nature. There was a square with an empty space in the middle for the dancers. People from the crowd were invited to sit at a drum and partake in the lesson and drum with them. I took a video, then it was my turn to play. Oh what fun!

I walked along, thinking I would start the long drive home but then came to our very own First Nations people as they were holding a drumming and singing competition. Each one of them sang songs of love in their own language and then in translation for those of us who could not understand. I listened to them, moved near to tears as I thought of these gentle people and what history had given them, what was stolen from them. I smiled as I listened … through everything they still have so much love in their hearts.

The Peruvians came in, dressed to the nines. Their head dresses were incredible!!! Their garb absolutely stunning. They danced in circle, taking turns passing the implement which appeared to have the same meaning as a talking stick, only this item was given to the one leading the dance. I sat there swaying in my chair, moved so deeply by their traditional dance and song.

I thought, These are our people. ALL of them I had seen today … we are all related. Sure, we come from different areas of the world, but our heart beats the same tempo. My hope is that when they see me they think I am their people too. I let these thoughts really sink in and solidify in my mind. To see them dancing, drumming, smiling and sharing made it so personal.

These, and those who embrace the differences “we share” ~ for we are all of the same substance ~ are the ones who will birth a new world … one which all people dance to the World Beatno one less than any another.

I walked toward my vehicle and as I crossed the street a gal I know was heading to the festival. We said hello to each other, giving a high five and a smile, and then continued on.

I drove home with a grin on my face. The absolute beauty of the various cultures was stunning! To see them all gathered in one place a mind boggling blessing! About half way home I looked at the dashboard once again, still smiling, to see the clock now read 4:44 … the “Angels are near” … https://www.ask-angels.com/spiritual-guidance/angel-number-444/https://readingswithmatt.com/numerology-444-spiritual-angel-meanings/.

I appreciate so much what those people participating in the festival have contributed to the world this day. I am grateful they are so resilient, keeping alive those practices and ancient knowledge of their regions. I hope some day all of it, all of us, will form a new whole … a whole which honors and respects each other and the culture brought and taught, grateful for each and every contribution made by every one … melding into a new way of being for all to share, made up of all cherished ways.

All will be well … even if it isn’t understood just yet.

Preparing Future Plans

Published June 28, 2018 by tindertender

It seems there are many who wish to make plans for us. Throughout time we’ve seen it, over and over again.  Kings and Queens, and Presidents …  parents and sitters, and mates. What we originally thought was a good idea now seems like a trap, one in which we must go along with, perhaps out of guilt for thinking it a good idea in the first place.

Reality is, this is the time to create something new, not a ‘do as I say’ sort of thing, but a conscious and aware co-creation in which skills are shared in service to each other … not as servants, but as contributors … where one skill is not above the other, or seen as more or less valued than the least.

This shift is one we have the power to choose, and the right to as well. This world is home for all, it shares its waters and air and earth with every single one of us. Some to a lesser degree only because of region, but the knowledge needed to ensure there is plenty for all is known, and the tools to make it happen have already been created, now there only need be implementation.

The ones who have been leaders in the ‘do as I say’ movement would like nothing more than to squash the ability of the masses to create, to tend their own needs, to share with each other as family.

It is my opinion that the awakening of this reality is the cause of the current dilemma we face … global weather manipulation, pharma, GMO’s, and the many toxins being poured into all that is needed to sustain a healthy life (water, food, earth, air). They feel the need to stop us for they desire to maintain their seats of authority. Hence troubles with conception, brain fog, and strange illnesses none can explain.

Claim to positions of leadership belongs to all people. Every single person inherits the right to these things which nourishes  life. It isn’t a man-made gift that some receive and others not … it isn’t to be doled out by Nestle, or Monsanto, or Bayer … or any government sector which has their pockets lined by them.

Every individual came to this earth to see to it that it is not destroyed, to bring a healing. Of course, having amnesia at birth and being reprogrammed into this current scenario does not help our cause, but the cause remains the same, nonetheless.

According to the HOPI here are two options:
The high road, the wide upper road of white man’s scientific achievements, and the low road of continuous Life in harmony with nature. The first leads to destruction and fizzles out, the other remains.

Our spiritual connection with our Mother Earth and a sense of a common destiny with her will be challenged. Each person will have to deal with that reality. Each will be tested. The prophecy instructions explain that our relationship with our Earth is fundamental to our being. 

This crisis is demanding that we employ a previously overlooked faculty of human nature, namely our Divinity. This faculty has always been active but almost completely ignored in this last century. It is through the filter of our hearts and emotions that we can reawaken this reliable source of Truth. This is a personal process and not an institutional one. The reason that religions have so much influence over our psyches is that we have sold our hearts, and our personal communion with Great Spirit to what the Hopis call the high priests of the two hearteds. Those would be the institutions of science and religion.

The Lakota also have their prophecy:
This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony or it will bring the end of life as we know it … To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth, falls the responsibility of turning back the powers of destruction. You yourself are the one who must decide … You alone – and only you – can make this crucial choice, to walk in honor or to dishonor your relatives. On your decision depends the fate of the entire World … Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind.

Consciously Connected

Published June 15, 2018 by tindertender

There is a wall between you and I … I can hear the muffled sounds of your movement, of your speaking. Some say, “Hold a glass to the wall!”, yet it isn’t so easy … when you can’t see the wall.

Honing the senses is a pretty important feature which should be added to daily practice. Some say “MK Ultra”, some say the “veil” is lifting, some say “mediumship”, or “psychic”, or “sensitive” or “crazy” or “WiFi”. Whatever you want to call it, pay attention, and know you are not alone. Crazy isn’t necessarily the description given it.

We benefit when we acknowledge the connection between ourselves, the planet, everything, and everyone upon it. When we allow the taught, and forced separation to rule our lives, we find a lot of pain and loneliness and struggle.

Is it possible to learn to embrace association once more? Has this inbred disconnect become too solidified in worldly existence?

Some say if you can count good friends on one hand you are extremely blessed. Was there ever a time when there were many more than one hand can count? A village perhaps, a strong community where each person worked toward the benefit of all others?

When we lift each other, spending time and energy to ensure our sister and brother are upheld … if everyone does this … then we can rest, knowing there are many who do the same for us.

Yes, it once was … are we able to get to this place again?

Today’s world is one of lack. The average family struggles to maintain a roof over their heads and food on the table. Wages are ‘stolen’ in the form of taxes to pay for war, and so many other destructive programs, and then the ones who run these programs turn around and act as though they are actually ‘helping’ people. There is a scheme which creates a world of reliance, dependent on those who form, and then run these systems, paid for by the very same workers who ‘give so generously’ their tax dollars.

We’re being pigeon holed. Separated and weakened in that separation until we cannot manage any longer, then we must ‘rely’ on the powers that be.

People ought to look deeply at this and rather than give their power away, bond with each other and claim it instead, growing it themselves … together, in conscious connected creation.

Greed and need for power must be left behind, otherwise, we’re at the mercy of those who have been siphoning the power from the people for decades … they have too large a head start to compete with. Only in relinquishing the need for power and adopting co-creation and care for each other will we be able to rise … once more.

To An Ending Of Suffering

Published May 9, 2018 by tindertender

The Dalai Lama is believed to be a manifestation/Reincarnation of Avalokiteshvara aka Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are believed to be enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to take rebirth in order to serve humanity…

In the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon of enlightened beings, Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

Avalokiteshvara aka Chenrezig is the earthly manifestation of the self born, eternal Buddha, Amitabha. He guards this world in the interval between the historical Sakyamuni Buddha, and the next Buddha of the Future Maitreya.

According to legend, Chenrezig made a a vow that he would not rest until he had liberated all the beings in all the realms of suffering. After working diligently at this task for a very long time, he looked out and realized the immense number of miserable beings yet to be saved. Seeing this, he became despondent and his head split into thousands of pieces. Amitabha Buddha put the pieces back together as a body with very many arms and many heads, so that Chenrezig could work with myriad beings all at the same time. Sometimes Chenrezig is visualized with eleven heads, and a thousand arms fanned out around him.

Chenrezig may be the most popular of all Buddhist deities, except for Buddha himself — he is beloved throughout the Buddhist world. He is known by different names in different lands: as Avalokiteshvara in the ancient Sanskrit language of India, as Kuan-yin in China, as Kannon in Japan.

As Chenrezig, he is considered the patron Bodhisattva of Tibet, and his meditation is practiced in all the great lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. The beloved king Songtsen Gampo was believed to be an emanation of Chenrezig, and some of the most respected meditation masters (lamas), like the Dalai Lamas and Karmapas, who are considered living Buddhas, are also believed to be emanations of Chenrezig.

Whenever we are compassionate, or feel love for anyone, or for an animal or some part of the natural world, we experience a taste of our own natural connection with Chenrezig. Although we may not be as consistently compassionate as some of the great meditation masters, Tibetan Buddhists believe that we all share, in our basic nature, unconditional compassion and wisdom that is no different from what we see in Chenrezig and in these lamas.

We might have trouble believing that we are no different than Chenrezig — but learning about the nature of compassion, and learning about Chenrezig, repeating his mantra Om Mani Padme Hum and imagining that we would like to be like Chenrezig, pretending that we really are just like Chenrezig, we actually can become aware of increasing compassion in our lives, and ultimately, the lamas tell us, awaken as completely wise and compassionate buddhas.

* Please note this is the long version, the more commonly known Avalokiteshvara Chenrezig Mantra is the short verison which is known as ” Om Mani Padme Hum”

Mantra of Avalokiteshvara by
Margot Reisinger, Lama Tenzin Sangpo

On the meaning of:
OM MANI PADME HUM The jewel is in the lotus or praise to the jewel in the lotus by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso The Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet It is very good to recite the mantra OM MANI PADME HUM, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast.

The first, OM, is composed of three pure letters, A, U, and M. These symbolize the practitioner’s impure body, speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech and mind of a Buddha. Can impure body, speech and mind be transformed into pure body, speech and mind, or are they entirely separate? All Buddhas are cases of being who were like ourselves and then in dependence on the path became enlightened; Buddhism does not assert that there is anyone who from the beginning is free from faults and possesses all good qualities. The development of pure body, speech, and mind comes from gradually leaving the impure states and their being transformed into the pure. How is this done? The path is indicated by the next four syllables.

MANI, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factor of method- the altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love. Just as a jewel is capable of removing poverty, so the altruistic mind of enlightenment is capable of removing the poverty, or difficulties, of cyclic existence and of solitary peace. Similarly, just as a jewel fulfills the wishes of sentient beings, so the altruistic intention to become enlightened fulfills the wishes of sentient beings.

The two syllables, PADME, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom. Just as a lotus grows forth from mud but is not sullied by the faults of mud, so wisdom is capable of putting you in a situation of non- contradiction where as there would be contradiction if you did not have wisdom. There is wisdom realizing impermanence, wisdom realizing that persons are empty of self-sufficient or substantial existence, wisdom that realizes the emptiness of duality (that is to say, of difference of entity between subject and object), and wisdom that realizes the emptiness of inherent existence. Though there are may different types of wisdom, the main of all these is the wisdom realizing emptiness.

Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable, HUM, which indicates indivisibility. According to the sutra system, this indivisibility of method and wisdom refers to one consciousness in which there is a full form of both wisdom affected by method and method affected by wisdom. In the mantra, or tantra vehicle, it refers to one conciousness in which there is the full form of both wisdom and method as one undifferentiable entity. In terms of the seed syllables of the five conqueror Buddhas, HUM is the is the seed syllable of Akshobhya- the immovable, the unfluctuating, that which cannot be disturbed by anything.

Thus the six syllables, OM MANI PADME HUM, mean that in dependence on the practice which is in indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha. It is said that you should not seek for Buddhahood outside of yourself; the substances for the achievement of Buddhahood are within.

As Maitreya says in his SUBLIME CONTINUUM OF GREAT VEHICLE (UTTARA TANTRA) all beings naturally have the Buddha nature in their own continuum. We have within us the seed of purity, the essence of a One Gone Thus (TATHAGATAGARBHA), that is to be transformed and full developed into Buddhahood.

There Is Honor In Turning Away

Published May 1, 2018 by tindertender

They’ve killed in your honor!” he shouted. “No … they killed because they thought it would bring them honor” is the response.

Free Society

People of the world once knew how to help each other, they were quite good at it. A darkness was made to cloud their minds and they forgot that they even wanted to.

Over time they have been taught they were flying solo, that they were in lack, that they had to fight for what little scraps they could muster. They were instilled with a fear that others might take from them, and some do. All of this anger and fear and pain and theft and harm stems from the cloud placed over the mind, the ‘veil’ if you will.

This current situation has been carefully orchestrated and fed by those who wish destruction. They cannot stand to see people banding together as a unit, for they become very strong when they do. When I say ‘strong’ I do not mean in a warring manner. I mean in their ability to gather resources, in their capacity to combine ideas and their willingness to labor together to see these ideas become reality which benefits all.

When backs are turned on the illusion which has been constructed and energies are spent in growing capacities to care for each other, the power behind destruction lessens, war fades, and harmony grows. It’s a choice people must make. To remain in this illusion which says ‘we need them’ and their gifts, or walk away, and create, and gift each other as we have capacity to.

The shift needed in order to sustain life will come from the masses, those talked of as ‘needless feeders’, the ‘disposables’, the ‘meek’ … these are the ones who will have claim in the world, these are the ones who ultimately will bind to, and heal, the earth.

Many of my writings are verbalized as though ‘I know’ personally of what must be done. Rather, these are inspired writings, as much a message for me as they are for you. I only hope you gain as much from them as I do.

Turning Tides

Published March 11, 2018 by tindertender

One of the most disabling circumstances for humanity is, it has been stripped of the capacity to trust. Many, if not all of us, have had our trust abused. At first we believe it’s a solitary situation, so we continue to wear our hearts on sleeve. Then, it happens again. Now naivety is dissolved, and it becomes harder to have faith in the goodness of people, yet we do, again, believe and hope with faith.

Heartbreak after heartbreak, damage untold … causes friendships to be rare, any type of relationship becomes most difficult to build. This circumstance causes anger, pain, despair even.

I look at women, on women’s day, and I see them opening to each other, even though trust is difficult, still they try. It seems many women have moved beyond the thought of another woman taking their man, or whatever. The courage shown and lived is extremely powerful.

Women have decided on a large scale that we need each other if we are to heal ourselves, and the damage in the world. This union of spirit is the only way out of this mess.

There are many men who stand by woman’s side not as an authority, but as a partner, friend, and co-creator of that which is good, blessing us, and the world with their wider vision.

Seeing young people stepping into adulthood with eyes wide open, strong, and only slightly damaged dna is exciting! They are showing grit and integrity which has been lacking for some time.

As I attempt to turn back my own dna damage, I continue to watch the scene, hope is growing once more, for the future.
