Many varieties of everything along this Journey through life

Waterfall           Within this picture you can clearly see all the many varieties of plant life, along side this cascade of water, that carves it’s path on it’s journey. Plants are living and breathing, just as we throughout Mankind do as we exist on this journey through life. The Plant world also comes with many varieties, just as we as Humans do, throughout Mankind.

Like the cascade of water in this picture, we throughout Mankind either carve our own paths, or follow a path throughout our journey of life, as their are many varieties of everything all around us. As the water flows and does it’s thing, it coincides with and helps the plants grow, by providing it some fresh source of nutrition, so they can be vibrant throughout their journey through life. Everything within life, just as we throughout Society serve a purpose along this Journey of life, just that we have to find that purpose, so we can thrive throughout our paths along this journey of life.

With the way Society is going today, in this fast paced I want it now atmosphere we have created, it is very hard for anybody/anything to find any purpose, let alone be able to coincide with each other along this journey through life. We have to be better at the little things, which we think don’t matter for anything. It’s the little things that bring great things to us along our path of our journey. We also have to do a better job at understanding these Life events that happen to us, yes we all have some kind of event that happens to us and they bring us great pain as well, if we don’t understand better, or fix the issues when they happen, so we can truly move forward, to be better and stronger along our paths of our journey through life.

This Journey through life can be either a short one, or a long one, nobody knows except our Lord God who is the creator of all Mankind. This is the reason why we need to do it right the first time, cause their is no second time, once the journey comes to an end and yes it will end, we just don’t know the when, where or why. We all have to be better at understanding these issues of the events that happen, so we can be better and truly find our purpose along this journey of life. Some may be lucky enough to find their purpose early along their path, while others don’t find it til later along their journey? It is all up to the Individual and how much confidence and belief you have in yourself, as well as in Jesus Christ, the only son of our Father the Lord God. Jesus came to us to walk his journey through his life, showing and teaching us the true way to the path of righteousness, we throughout this Society have become lost, to the true teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ.

These events can bring great pain to us, as well as cloud our judgements and the ability to make good decisions, which we then become lost throughout this journey and never find our true purpose of our existence while we walk our paths along this journey through life. To truly find your purpose, we need to be confident and totally believe in ourselves, as well as believe in Jesus Christ, with this belief then comes the faith and when we have faith, then there is always hope, to which we then can accomplish anything we set our minds to and the ability to achieve great things along this journey of life. So as these events come to us, it is important we control and fix these issues, before they control who we really are and become someone we are not. This journey through life may have many varieties of everything within it, but when we walk our paths correctly, we all can coincide better throughout this journey and be better for whatever that may cross our paths.

” Life events can control who we are if we let them, which is why we have to fix our issues as they happen, to be able to be confident with belief and faith in all we do”

” Our paths are either created from our own actions, or we may follow an existing path? Either way we have to be better at fixing our issues so we can be better moving forward along this path of the journey through life”

The colors of Autumn soon to be upon us once again

Autumn Leaves           The cool brisk mornings, that give way to the warmth of the afternoon air. This is what Autumn is all about, also with the bright colors of the leaves that are changing their colors, then fall to the ground and strip the trees bare, With all the bright vibrant colors of the leaves, mixed with a beautiful sunrise over the landscape, now your talking of a beauty that even a picture can’t capture just how beautiful it really is. The rays of the morning sun reflecting off of the dew on the green grass of the meadow, the bright rays of the sun bouncing from one colored leaf to the next and as the sun moves up away from the distant mountains, warms the air of the cool brisk mornings.

The season of fall, also known as Autumn. Truly is the best season of all four of the seasons. With fall all the plant life begins their exhaling process and gets ready for the cold of the winter, as in the spring the plant life does their inhaling process, to get ready for the summer season. The exhaling of the tree’s is what gives us the beauty of the bright colors of the leaves, plus it gives the tree’s time to ready themselves for the deep cold of the winter months. Yes most of us don’t like the season of winter, cause within this season we see nothing but the work of removing the snow that may fall and the deep cold that has us layer up to keep warm. When you look beyond the work and the layering up, truly see the winter for what it is, now you can see all the beauty that winter brings as well, okay maybe not the bright colors of fall.

The season of fall also brings a crispness to the air and a time for us to enjoy and unwind, like going to a real Country fair, that highlights all the Agriculture and what it takes for the Farmer to cultivate all the Agriculture. It is also maple syrup season, as the sap flows steadily out of the maple tree’s, there is nothing like fresh maple syrup and I especially like the maple sugar candy also. If your a sport’s fanatic than it is also the start of Football and Hockey season, to me the only two sports that matter of all the sports. There is a whole lot more to the season of fall, other than thinking of the winter, that is right around the corner.

With the season of fall we also have to turn the clocks back one hour, this gives us less sunlight and what makes winter seem longer than it really is, but come spring that hour gets returned and we can have longer days to enjoy outside. The winter months may have shorter days, but this is no reason to stay inside without enjoying the outside air. With each season there is plenty beauty that goes with them, you just have to go out and explore, to see all the true beauty around you. For me it is the fall that is the best season, as others have their favorite season for them to enjoy? The fall may be looked at as an ending, cause all the leaves fall off the tree’s and plant life seems to die for the winter, but if you can see a new beginning from all the endings, than the fall will never be looked at as an ending, only the start of a new beginning, for everything that may breathe the air, that this planet of Earth provides for us all.

” there are four seasons within a year on the calender, we each have our favorite season that makes us the happiest on our journey through life”

” we may lose an hour on the clock of time in the fall, but if you truly see all the beauty around you, you never notice the difference in time”

” the crisp cool morning air of the fall, gives way to the warmth of the afternoon sunlight for us to enjoy”

The journey of life has many similarities, as we carve our paths differently.

Forest           Just as we walk our Journey’s Jesus also came and walked his journey with us. There are no set paths, only paths carved by others, or paths that we may carve ourselves. We learn many things and make many choices along the paths we walk, when Jesus came and walk his path, we today are still learning of his teachings. During the journey of Jesus Christ, he gathered many followers, but none more important than the twelve followers known as the Disciples.

Jesus then said to the chosen twelve:

” Do you also want to leave?” Simon Peter answered him , Master to whom should we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy one of God”.

**JN 6:67-69

These words of the Scriptures over the history of Mankind, have been dissected and ignored many times, but they remain within the good book of the Bible and brings us much inspiration at times within our lives when we most are in need. The journey of life with all that happens within it, can  become overwhelming at times and have us become clouded, within the clouds of our judgements, if we don’t truly understand what is going on around us.

Egotism to some may be just a word, of which they don’t know the true meaning of. This word Egotism is a feeling within each one of us, that only has us looking at ourselves, without any true empathy or remorse of anyone else around us. This word Egotism has brought down many Societies before the one in which we walk and it is bringing down the current one as well, this feeling of Ego we all carry within us, will only have us look at ourselves as the only thing that matters, without truly looking at everything around us.

To see just what this word of Egotism is doing to our Society, just stop and look around, not just at what is close by you, but what is happening throughout the entire planet Earth. You have many people struggling just to put food on the table and to put a roof over their heads. All the while their are others that will stop at nothing, just to satisfy their Ego and take everything they can, from the ones who need it most. When you are too busy just feeding your Ego, than you lose what is truly the most important part of yourself, which is the true feelings of empathy and remorse.

If we all throughout this Society would be more in touch with our true feelings of empathy and remorse, that is deep within the core of each of us, this Society would show more love of one another and stop all the hate we see daily today. Egotism is something that has been happening throughout Mankind from the beginning of Mankind and we still haven’t been able to control it, or control ourselves towards it. Egotism is another way for us to be selfish of each other, so we won’t open ourselves up to any hurt that may come to us, while we show this Egotism all we are really doing is, deflecting our true issues away from ourselves and thinking we are better than all that is around us.

Jesus didn’t come to us and walk his journey, so we could all go our own way with our big Ego’s in tact, he taught us to love one another, by being more in tune with our feelings of empathy and remorse. Egotism is just an excuse and a way for us to try to move forward, without truly fixing our issues and not acknowledging the pain that may come to us. Egotism is just a way for us to hide deep within who we truly are, then portray a fake self so others will view us as strong. I understand when things happen to us that bring great pain, we want nothing more than to rid this pain from us, but when we bury this pain without truly taking care of it correctly, this pain will forever be within us, to which we then put forth this Egotism, so we can at least move forward and try to be as normal as we can be. Jesus came to us and walked his journey with us, while teaching us just how to love one another, we just have to drop this Egotism, so we can actually feel the empathy and remorse within us, then we all can walk our paths of our journey through life peacefully and become stronger and better throughout our Society.

” The journey of life has many attributes within it, but when we are full of this Egotism, we cannot see truly the good throughout this journey of life”

” The scriptures are within the Bible, just as the true feelings of empathy and remorse are within each one of us”

” Egotism is just a word, but it is a word that we let control who we truly are”

Through the meadow the wild flowers grow, as the creek goes with the flow

Creek              Walking through a Meadow you will find many varieties of wild flower’s, you may also see different species of wild animals, with the creek going with the flow of what is around it. With all the beauty that is Mother Nature and all that coincides within it, makes you wonder why we all throughout Mankind can’t get along with each other.

We may walk in one direction even though there are many directions in which too travel, we get so involved in walking in a certain direction that we then think this direction is the only direction? When others around us walk in their direction, we immediately respond with ” you are wrong and I am right”. There is no wrong direction, as their are many directions to travel along our paths of our journey through life,

While we are young and growing up into Society, there are many groups or cliques that each one operate in their own way and force us to be like them, or we will never fit in within that group? There are cliques like the Stoner’s, who do nothing but hang out and do drugs of all kinds, then there are the Jocks, who are into playing their sports and try to be the most popular of all around them, then you have the Geeks, that are the least popular and wear their nerdy glasses, as most of them are busy with their studies, cause the other cliques won’t let them within their space, but these Geeks most of the time are the smartest clique of them all. Just as everything within the World of Mother Nature, is full of many varieties and travel their direction, we all throughout Mankind have variety and travel many directions along our paths of our journey of life.

The journey of life has many varieties within it, we throughout Mankind just have to find what is best for us, so we can be better and stronger and then learn to coincide with others, so we can teach and learn from one another, instead of being against one another, when we enter in the world of the cliques and they try to force us to be something or somebody we truly are not, then that clique is not for us, when we are forced into anything we then develop a hatred for whatever is being forced upon us, what is even worse is that we then learn to rebel and pull back from all those around us.

There are many varieties of anything as we walk our paths along our journey of life, there are also many directions in which to go, we will only find the right direction and we  will find which variety that is right for us, only by exploring what is all around us, when we explore all that is around us, we then become better at accepting what is around us, instead of staying within the clique and developing a hatred for what may look different than we ourselves. .

” A clique is a group of Individuals, what a clique shouldn’t be is, surrounded with hate for whatever is around them”

” just as their are many different varieties within mother nature, there are also many different varieties within mankind as well”

” through the meadow the wild flowers grow……. as the creek goes with the flow”

Nectar the fruit of the flower, Bread of life is the food of our soul.

Garden

“Just as the Bee’s swarm around the flowers gathering their honey, the bread of life is within our hearts as Jesus fills it with love”

Everything around us and everything within us, serves a purpose in all our lives as we walk our paths along this journey through life. It is up to each of us to find that purpose, so we all can walk this journey in peace, while we coincide with each other and not become full of the ugliness, while surrounded with hate.

Everything happens for a reason and we all have a purpose for walking our paths of this journey, God leaves it up to us to find this purpose and then we will find the reason of why everything must happen as it may. There are many Bee’s within their nest, most are the worker Bee’s, who surround their Queen and bring her the fruit of the flower in the Nectar, when the Bee brings in this Nectar they than proceed to sweeten it for the Queen, in the form of some sweet honey, as the Nectar is turned into honey, we then take it, process it and bottle this sweet creation, to sell and consume with how ever we like.

There are many ways to which we lose sight of reality, lose sight of who we truly are, lose sight of the true meaning of life and how to walk this path of this journey through life. Sometimes we think we have all the answers and then get frustrated when nothing goes the way it should, if we only took the time to stop what we are doing, so we can better understand the happenings of what is going on around us, we can focus our sights on our real issues, so we than can find our purpose, which will tell us the reason of why things happens as they do.

The Bread of life is within each of our hearts, it will never be seen or heard from, but we can feel it deeply as the warmth from it will warm our bodies, even on the coldest days. This Bread of life is what Jesus fed to his Disciples at the seating of the last supper, finished off with his blood to wash it down within them. This Bread of life is more than any kind of food, it is having complete Faith of yourself and complete Faith in Jesus Christ  himself. With this Faith comes Hope and when we have hope, there is nothing we can’t do no matter what may cross our paths along our journey through life.

” When we eat this bread and drink his blood, we will always have faith and hope, only we have to acknowledge it and not ignore it”

The Faith of the Lord Jesus Christ will be with us all, as we have Faith of ourselves, so we can be better and stronger moving forward in our lives. Moving forward and not backwards will always give us the confidence in all we do, when we have the confidence, we can always see clearly of everything around us, without trying to see through the clouds of our clouded judgement. This journey through life may at times seem hard to us and makes us become frustrated at everything around us? Only that we ourselves have lost the faith and the hope, which strips us of any confidence to continue moving forward and when we lose these, we then let our judgements become clouded, which has us back tracking instead of moving forward and makes our journey through life seem harder than it really is.

” The Nectar is the fruit of the flower with a sweet taste, the Bread of life is never seen or heard, only felt deep within our hearts and souls”

Last walk along the lighted path, where it goes no one knows.

Dock            The deep blue color of where the sky meets the ocean, looks like they flow smoothly into each other. The shapes of the clouds look so cool and mesmerizes us into a fog. The cloud in the middle is kind of like an opening to a tunnel, if you look closely on the right side of the opening, could this be Jesus welcoming us through the Pearly Gates? You see what is a slight impression of a face and with this lighted walk that looks like it is headed into the tunnel, just maybe this is what the entrance to Heaven is?

Death is a subject that nobody wants to bring up or chat about, but yet as we walk our paths along this journey of life, it is a subject that stares us all in the eyes sooner or later. When death happens to those close to us, whom we love dearly, it becomes a very painful subject for us all, it also brings many tears of sadness as we miss our loved ones dearly, no one wants their loved ones to die and even though we know that the day will come, we never are ready for that day.

There was a time I moved away and had a job at a resort many miles from where I was born and raised, while I was there my Papere passed away. This was a man I had total respect for, I could talk to him comfortably and he always treated me with respect back, I loved him dearly and when he passed, I didn’t have the money to come back home, so I didn’t have the proper closure. When I did come home and walked into the house in which he lived, to see his wife and my mamere, That is when it hit me and I broke down when he wasn’t sitting in his favorite chair and my mamere was there to console me. We never want our loved ones to leave us, we know some day it will come, but we are never ready for it, which it pains us greatly and why we need that proper closure, so we can keep moving forward, as our loved ones would of wanted us to.

When a person dies do they walk this lighted path into the tunnel within the clouds in the sky and where Jesus welcomes us through the Pearly Gates? Nobody can say with 100% certainty, cause if they could, this would mean they have died and came back to walk their path along this journey of life. Nobody truly knows what happens after death, we can speculate, but this is only fiction and not fact. What we do know of death is, for the ones who lose a loved, it is a very painful time to get through,  to which having proper closure is very important for each of us, so we can keep moving forward as our loved ones would of wanted us to.

There are many things that will trip us up on our paths along this journey through life and death of our loved ones is at the top of the list, we all say they are above us looking down on us and with this cool picture, just maybe they truly are? The clouds in the sky have many different shapes and sizes everyday we look at them, with this lighted path that looks like it is headed toward the opening within the sky, definitely gets our minds to wander of something like this. Death is something that will knock us down and hold us down, til we have proper closer and better deal with our pain, yes we all feel this pain deep within our hearts and souls, some may try to hide it from others, as they don’t want to be looked at as weak, but the true weak ones are the ones that don’t deal properly with death itself.

To see this lighted path for what it truly is, with the opening within the clouds in the sky, we have to have complete faith in ourselves and complete faith in Jesus Christ, as he was the one that came and walked his journey with us and taught us just how to get to the path of righteousness. The path of righteousness is the light at the end of a dark tunnel and just maybe this lighted walk way, is truly the end of the path into eternity for all?  We all walk this path along this journey through life, we need to have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, so when we feel any pain deep within us, we can continue to move forward, with the confidence to be better and stronger in all we do.

The path of righteousness comes to all of us when we keep the faith and stay confident, so we can be better and stronger moving forward”

” Clouds may come in all shapes and sizes, but do we truly know why they do, or do we just look at them to interpret their shapes in our own way”

” do we walk a lighted path into a tunnel in the clouds? To have the true answer to this, we have to have complete faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ”

Like sand in the hour glass……..the sunrise through time

Tree          Sunrise is the most beautiful time of the day, as it is the time to wake up and start a new day. Like the sunset is the ending of the day and just as beautiful, the sunrise is the start of the ending each and everyday. We in today’s Society take so much for granted, with each sunrise and sunset being the biggest thing we take for granted. Without a sunrise you can’t have a sunset and without a sunrise nothing will ever wake up to start a new.

You can see in this picture how the sun wakes up and clears the overnight dew from the tree, as you can see the sun winking between the limbs. The sun brings the light so all can breathe, wake up and feel alive to start fresh each and every day. Then at the end of the day, the sun sets, for some much needed rest from the energy it burns in bringing the light to all that it shines on. Just as the sun sets for it’s much needed rest, we all throughout Society, the tree’s and all other forms of life, will also get some needed rest, unless your a night Owl that enjoys burning the midnight oil.

You need to get away from the city lights and all the commotion that the city brings, so you can see the true beauty of each sunrise and sunset. Which is why I enjoy true Wilderness camping and I recommend that all should try it as well, yes true Wilderness camping means no cell phones or techy devices, as none of that will get any signal for you to use, which means total relaxation and enjoying all the true beauty that is around you. After the sun has set, it is time to sit by the campfire and get mesmerized by the burning coals, the glow of the of the coals on the bottom and the quivering flames above, is better than Yoga to clear your mind and totally relax your whole body and sole. Ah!!! how relaxed I am just thinking of this beauty, with no city lights, or sounds of a beeping horn and siren of the emergency vehicles.

To some this type of camping is too remote, as you have no electricity or running water to flush a toilet, but to a true camper, this is paradise and total relaxation. True in this Society we have forgotten how to live in remote places as this, but at the beginning of Mankind, this was the only way in which too live.

There is nothing like camping in the wilderness at the foot of a pond, waking up before the sun and jumping into a canoe or a kayak, paddling out to the middle of the pond and watching the sun wake up, what great pictures this makes, not too mention if your lucky enough, you will also see some American Bald Eagles diving into the water around you, in search for their daily breakfast. Then as everything wakes up around you during the sunrise, break out the fishing pole, to catch you some fresh catch of the day, to enjoy by the campfire later in the day. Fishing is another great way to unwind and relax and as you wait for the fish to bite, you can look around at all of Natures beauty that is around you.

We throughout Society take so much for granted, but nothing more than the sunrises and sunsets of each day. We all walk a path through this journey of life, within this fast paced Society of today, we don’t take the time to stop and enjoy what is around us, stop and smell the flowers of life, stop and enjoy watching the sun wake up with each sunrise, we don’t know how to truly relax anymore, as we all are wound up and uptight every minute of the day. The journey of life to some is short, to others is long, but if we don’t enjoy this journey while we are here, then this journey will be wasted time and full of regrets.

” Sunrise is the waking up of everything around you, sunset is when all gets some much needed rest, we throughout mankind take these for granted, cause we don’t stop to enjoy what is around you”

” There is always an ending within this journey through life, but what we over look is, there is always a new beginning that comes from all the endings”

” As the sunrise comes it is the most calm part of the day, but if you don’t wake up to see it, then this calmness will pass you by”
