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?

Playing With Fire

Published August 13, 2018 by tindertender

What do you do when you know the world is dying yet people all around you refuse to see it, and insist you are giving too much credence to ‘conspiracy theorists’? What do you do when they refuse to read the links for information, or tell themselves and others there is nothing that can be done about it?

It is tempting to give in, to give up to go along with the view that we may as well let the world die because we are ‘powerless’ … but I refuse. I cannot see a better way to spend the rest of my life than sounding the alarm. At least then I can say I tried, I did something.

I include links here for those things which threaten the planets eco-system, which in turn affects the health of ALL life. Is it possible for people to develop care for these things before it is too late?

Getting very real now ….

Is It Time? Warriors of the Rainbow

Published July 18, 2018 by tindertender

Messages from Russell Means and a link to prophecy of The Warriors of the Rainbow. Russell’s life was spent bringing awareness … He was not alone in his message … and he still is not.

She Is Such A Person

Her mind free from thought,
her appearance calm and tranquil,
her forehead beams simplicity.

Her chill is as elemental as autumn, her warmth that of spring. Her joy and anger flow like the four seasons. She always does what’s suitable, and has no limitations … Without showing affection her blessings extend through ten generations.

She has her likes and dislikes. What she likes is the One and what she dislikes is also the One. What is One is One, and what is not One is also One.

Such a person lets the gold stay hidden in the mountains,
and the pearls sleep in the deep waters.
She doesn’t consider property or money to be a benefit
and avoids riches and honors.
She doesn’t rejoice in long life,
nor grieve over early death.
She doesn’t account prosperity a blessing,
nor is ashamed of poverty.

The Way Of Life

Published April 6, 2018 by tindertender

Morning stretches … energetic flow brings a sweat to my brow, my cheeks. I sit in contemplation about my family, my friends both near and far, and I send them love and peace. I think of the animals in the world and send them kindness.. I work for balance between us all where compassion binds ‘we’ together.

I open my book of “The Way of Life” according to Lao Tzu and I share what I find there.

Lao Tzu

‘Yield and you need not break’:
Bent you can straiten,
Emptied you can hold,
Torn you can mend;
And as want can reward you
So wealth can bewilder.
Aware of this, a wise man has the simple return
Which other men seek:
Without inflaming himself
He is kindled,
Without explaining himself
Is explained,
Without taking credit
Is credited,
Laying no claim
Is acclaimed
And, because he does not compete,
Finds peaceful competence.
How true is the old saying,
‘Yield and you need not break’!
How completely it comes home!

On the opposite page there is another about nature, and since they both arrived together this morning, I will share it as well, for perhaps this is the one that will strike a cord in you, ever revving your creative connective flow.

Nature does not have to insist,
Can blow for only half a morning,
Rain for only half a day,
And what are these winds and these rains but natural?
If nature does not have to insist,
Why should man?
It is natural too
That whoever follows the way of life feels alive,
That whoever uses it properly feels well used,
Whereas he who loses the way of life feels lost,
That whoever keeps to the way of life
Feels at home,
Whoever uses it properly
Feels welcome,
Whereas he who uses it improperly
Feels improperly used:
‘Fail to honor people,
They fail to honor you.’

There are systems in place which are controlling the weather, misusing the nature of things. The disconnect grows and the angst between people does as well. My hope is that more will come to realize the saneness in the words of Lao Tzu and embrace a change of thought, of heart, and of ‘doing’.

The Brain

Published July 31, 2017 by tindertender

The most amazing thing in the world is the human brain that apreciates it. That mass of corrugated gray matter boxed in bone which registers the impressions received from all things, from the stars to dust motes, is by far the most wonderful substance of all substances.

What would a tree mean if there were no brain to see it with its eye, to hear it with its ear, and to touch it with its hand? Nothing. Practically it would not exist.

There would be no sun if there were no eye, no perfumes if there were no nose, no sounds if there were no ear.

Blot out brains and the universe is extinguished.

There may be other suns in the sky, there may be spirit bodies moving among us, there may be stupendous music swirling around us, all of such quality that we have no organ to perceive them. For us they do not exist.

A telephone would be a dead thing and useless without a receiver. The brain is the receiver of the universe.

Very wonderful is Paderewski’s performance upon the piano, Raphael’s colors upon canvas, Shakespeare’s words on paper, and all of Creator’s glory of landscape and sea view; but not so miraculous as the grayish stuff in our heads that can receive their messages, record them, and translate them into emotion.

It was not such a task to create a world as it were to construct this curious organ that the world can play upon. For a world with no brain in it would be an Ysaye without a violin. So also a Wagner opera is surpassed by the brains that can understand it. Newton’s mathematical theses, and Wordsworth’s poetry, and Socrates’s reasoning, and Lord Christ’s life truths, greater than these  are the people that can grasp them.

My mind is the ultimate miracle.

Long before this brain came into being there were electricity, light, sound, color, and all the phenomena of existence; but, actually, the universe was created when I was born, and when I die it will be the end of the world.

The whole cosmos, the sum of things, is all in that pulp in the bone-cup at the top of my spine.

More strange yet than our ability to perceive sights and sounds is our capacity for understanding those motions of pure spirit that go on in other brains. We can see the hope, love, hate, joy, and sorrow of another, interpreting them by words, signs, and other indications.

We can grasp world plans, recondite scientific theories, and the subtlest refinements of thought. We can weep at poetry, laugh at comedy, mourn in sympathy, fear from our own fancies, feel sin and rightness, follow evil or worship God.

Of all the jewels found in the earth or sea, of all machines made by man’s cunning, of all the incomprehensible works of the Deity, nothing excels that handful of gray substance that functions like a locked-up god in the cranium of the “two-legged animal without feathers.”

Message of the Sabian symbol

Published May 13, 2017 by tindertender
https://www.lovehaswon.org/astrology/full-moon-in-scorpio-may-2017-walk-the-talk

The sabian symbol of the Full Moon is “Obeying his conscience, a soldier resists orders”. The message of the sabian symbol is: sometimes you have to assert your values, your truth, even if you have to face the consequences of your decision, no matter the cost. You have to stay true to yourself, no matter what. This is the ultimate freedom. And the only one we really have.

“One can take away everything from a human being, but no one can take away the ability to choose our attitudes towards the circumstances in which we find ourselves.”
