A Society that has lost it’s way along this journey of life………..




This picture is cool to look at in so many different ways, but what this picture truly shows is when you look deeply into what you see, is the fact that these logs that lay underneath the roots from an old stump, are a look into the past of what yesteryear was like for a whole different Society.

These logs lay on the shore of one of the many ponds within the state of Maine, the pond’s water level is determined by a dam on one end controlled by a power company. Now back in the day of the Lumber Jack, they would chop the tree’s down that were going to a mill to be milled into 2×4’s or planks to be marketed at a lumber yard. So they would use the pond to move large quantities to a certain location, where either the mill was, or a truck was, that a tractor would place onto the truck from the water, in today’s world it is a bit more sophisticated, with big machinery, that clears one lot, then moves on to another lot.

Now the dam on one end of the pond is controlled by a Hydro power company, that will open and close the dam to determine the amount of power they convert, which then will increase or decrease the level of water in the pond. Now when the water is at it’s lowest level, the vegetation around the shore now becomes exposed to great amounts of sun light, which then dries out the the vegetation and tree’s alike. A lot of it dies off and then when the dam is closed, the water rises as then the dead wood gets covered and saturated with water, which then has it floating aimlessly around the pond.

You can clearly see just how smooth this stump and logs are, from the time it spent within the water and became saturated, now that it has become dried out from the sunlight, it has become very smooth like drift wood along a beach. Some of it like this stump and  it’s roots, have a unique shape to it, which will then have each of us that look at it and perceive many things out of it’s shape. Perception is what we as Humans do and at times with our perceptions, we tend to perceive things we really don’t understand and then our perceptions become tainted and misguided. Our perception of things around us can be our greatest asset, but when the perception is mislead or misguided, now it becomes an issue of not truly seeing or looking deeply into what you see. One may look at this stump and see one thing from it’s roots, while another will see something totally different? That is fine and nothing wrong with that, but when someone tries to force us into seeing what they see, now you are getting into a dangerous area of, trying to control and be more powerful with your perception, over the perceptions of everybody around you.

With all the school shootings lately over the last few years, We all get caught up in the ” Gun control” debate………… It is really nothing to do with Gun control as we may perceive? It is really a People issue and how we perceive the issue around us. We tend to take the easy way out of everything, as we have become too lazy to actually work at changing what we need. The gun laws are in place, as well as the background checks, they just have to be enforced and not treated by the ones that sell the guns, as merely a way to put more greed into their pockets, plus anybody that will actually fire upon another Human, has some kind of red flag waiving over their their head, that the rest of us are ignoring and turning away from instead of recognizing. It is a combination between  us not identifying the red flags and not having enough places for these people to go and receive the proper help, before they escalate into taking such abrasive and ugly actions.

We have all had these red flags at different times in our lives, we all deal differently of the flags, others around us would help us and not turn their backs on us when they see the flags? The red flags are the warning signs to our behavior, whether the behavior is good or bad, they still need to be addressed, before the flag wraps us within the confines of our actions. Back through the many years and Societies that have given us the schools, to ready us for the future, there has been what we call a ” bully”, these Individuals just to try to make themselves seem more powerful than those around them, they would inflict fear on their Victim/Victims. While inflicting the fear a Bully most always has a hidden fear within themselves they are hiding. Now we as the people of this Society and where we are disconnected are, who really are to blame for the actions within the schools? Some may say the Guns because it is an easy target, but in reality it boils down to the Parents and the Teacher’s, plus the whole Faculty of the schools, as the children do spend a lot of time there, where the Parents have entrusted these people within the schools, to protect and watch over their children. The Faculty needs to be trained better at not just identifying the red flags, but how to deal with the red flags, then pass the training to the Teacher’s and also the biggest area for whom should be identifying the red flags are, within the walls of the household, where the children are being raised and that goes to the Parents, who not only have given birth to the children, but raise these children to be better and stronger moving forward.

With all the red flags out there in this Society, it is time we raise the white flag to surrender from all our troubles, help ourselves as well as each other, instead of turning our backs and burying deeply within our troubles, which does nothing but fester inside, til one day we explode from all the suppression’s. Yes we the people are what’s wrong within the Society of today and until we the people come together in unity, come together showing more love and empathy for each other, instead of turning our backs or pointing our fingers of blame at each other, then the problem of the red flags will never go away, which will then have us all, never finding the true path of righteousness that Jesus showed us, which then will lead us to true happiness and true peace, with all the ugliness around us disappearing from all our paths we walk, through this journey of life.


” We the people are what’s wrong with this society and we the people can fix this society to be better and stronger”

” There are many flags throughout this society. but none as important as the red flag to recognize and fix what needs to be fixed to make the red flags disappear”

” The many perceptions of the many things around us, which is why we need to understand better our perceptions”

” Love and empathy and us the people coming together in unity, is what is needed to help keep the red flags from destroying all that is around us”

” Change comes to each of us daily, time we adapt properly to the change, so we all can move forward in the peace and happiness that we are missing”





Never take anything for granted



A time within the history of this great Country that America is, a time in our past that we have long forgotten. Hello there!  We are two American Soldiers, who fought very hard for this country, so all that followed can live as freely as free can be within this country. We never asked for anything in return, we never looked at ourselves as Hero’s, we simply showed up and reported for duty, not just for the love of a country for which we lived, not even for anybody telling us so, but simply because it was something we felt deep within us to do. I know now in the place we are now, that it was a higher calling, that was calling us for duty, to help spread the love of God, to all those for which we have helped.

Now myself and my fellow Soldier may be laying here in complete solitude away from all that a society brings, but on the contrary………. Our bodies may be here, but our hearts and souls are in that better place, a place where we are looking down on all of you, for who we fought to protect and serve and let us just say this, ” we are not very happy for how you have completely forgotten about us” and that, you all have also taken completely for granted the soil for which you walk. The lack of Respect within your Society, would never fly within ours, as we all had each others back and no problem going to bat for each other, no matter what the reason.

It’s our bodies that get left behind, but our hearts and souls move into infinity, so the love deep within them can now truly come out and be shared with all of you. We sacrificed just as Jesus did for all so that the good will find you, then through the good we are able to walk our paths of this journey, not just better and stronger, but as free as free can be, while you share the love deep within your hearts and souls with all that are around you.

We all have a higher calling, just that in order to truly know of what it is, you first have to feel deeply within your heart and soul, then with that true feeling, you will then find your true purpose, as did myself and my fellow Soldiers, who fought so bravely for all who walk the soil of America. We didn’t know all throughout this country, we didn’t have to know everybody, we just did it cause it was the right thing to do, for ourselves and all throughout this great country of America.

There is no greater way to truly feel the warmth of God’s love deep within your heart and soul than to, really help those around you and do so, with love, conviction and empathy for those you reach out to, because when we do this, we than can truly be free, truly walk this journey with a purpose and as all throughout this Society, come together in unity, we all then can be in the peace and happiness, that we once had, when times were simpler and didn’t look to hurt each other with great pain. God gave us a soul so we can feel the warmth of his love throughout our bodies, he also gave us a heart, to pump the warmth throughout our bodies to not only spread this warmth within ourselves, but to spread it with all that comes before us, along our paths of this journey through life.


” Never take anything for granted, for you never know of just how much you may need whatever you have taken for granted”

” History is a very important class to pay attention in without falling asleep, as we all could learn more of any country, to understand better of what is happening around us”

” A Soldier is never a Hero as they are someone who steps in to the calling, so they can be the Jesus Christ of modern day, to sacrifice for the good of us all”

” We all have a higher calling, but first you have to truly feel deep within yourself, so you than can truly feel the higher power within you”





Flow through time…. as you are



I may look like a little stream at first glance, but I flow along the Earth with great miles. I may look and feel wet to the touch, but really i am dry in no need of a towel. You see all the vegetation around me, true they need my water to survive, as I need them also, to keep flowing along my journey.  What a crooked web I weave along the journey I flow, around many obstacles like rocks and tree’s, during the spring thaw when all the Winter’s snow melts, my banks then become swollen, as I become wider, then as the hotter months come without the rain, now I dry up with my banks becoming slim, like as if I was dieting. Along my journey as curvy with many turns, there is not a day that goes by that it is the same, with the same rocks to be splashed.

Sometimes my journey will have many up hills as well as many down hills, with each up hill I then labor and don’t flow as easily, then with the down hills I than can relax and go with my natural flow. Not all the terrain that I cover will ever repeat itself, which is why my journey, has to be in happiness while I look deeply into what’s in front of me. I so need to enjoy my journey, so then my journey I can enjoy, no matter which direction I then may flow.

As I flow along my journey, there is many different kinds of vegetation that will count on and depend on me for their growth and happiness, as they live and breathe the air around, while sipping from my banks. This is why the shores of my banks need to be free and clear of all the clutter, plus not too mention of all the four legged ones that come to my banks for a drink and a splash.

Mother Nature then controls the quantity of the water within my banks, as I am then left with controlling  of my journey along my path throughout the land of this place, so as I then keep myself happy with all that is around me. When I flow in happiness, then I never become angry with many ripples on the exterior, instead my surface becomes as smooth as glass and like a mirror for all that glance into me. When I become mean then all that is around my banks, gets damaged with my fury, as then there comes much change with new growth of the many plant life around me.

Just as I flow along throughout the banks of my shore, so does all living breathing things as well and when we all move forward, out of respect for one another, now we all can flow happily along our paths, throughout this journey of life.


” We all have our struggles, we all have our obstacles, but with respect for one another, then the struggles and obstacles don’t seem as big as we think they are”

” When we stay true to ourselves then we can flow easily throughout the journey”

” Streams, rivers. or an ocean, doesn’t matter of the size, when they flow freely then the flow will always be constant”

” Mother Nature may help with the flow, but ultimately the flow belongs to each of us throughout”

” What a crooked web I then weave, as I flow throughout this journey of life”



















An uncharted beach for true relaxation




I am the Rocky shore of a beach along a pond, right smack in the middle of no where. I am a place to go when you want true peace and serenity, when everybody else goes to the crowded beach along the shore of an ocean. where you have to worry more of being ripped off, than getting truly relaxed, I am the place to go to truly get away and truly enter into the doors of true peace and serenity, where part of the beauty I hold is listening to the Maine state bird the Loon, sing their music and chat back and forth along the water of the pond, or maybe a Moose walking along the beach and coming to the water for it’s daily splash. This is all about being one with Nature, enjoying all of it’s beauty with no interruptions, so you than can totally relax your mind, body and soul, which cures you from the daily grind full of nothing but chaos and stress.

Simply set up your comfy camp chair along my rocky surface, no radio’s or cellphone needed, just sit there look out deeply into the blue water, where it meets the horizon and the sky, let it hypnotize you into true peace and serenity, while you hear nothing but the true sounds of Nature and what is around at this time? Now you are entering into not a twilight zone, but a zone that is within true reality, that will transform you, that will lift those heavy weights from your shoulders, that will cleanse you from all the crap, so you than can totally relax and unwind from the daily grind, which will then help you walk your path of this journey, within the peace and serenity you long for.

Those deep colored blue clouds above, yes they look a bit thunderous?  But as you look deeply into them with no worry of what they may hold, you can clearly see not just of which direction they are traveling, but just how fast they are traveling over head. This helps in determining whether you need to duck under the shelter, or just stay put and keep enjoying the true beauty around you. As you look deeply into the clouds above, you notice the rays of the sun leaking in between the cracks of the clouds, as well as all the different formations of the clouds, then you see it!!! You see that one shape or that one formation, that you never see, because you really never before look that deeply into anything before, this is what happens when you clear yourself of all the crap, become one with your surroundings and let the good overwhelm the evil within you.

You see that thickly green Forest on the other shore across from you, When you look deeply into the other side, you just may see another of God’s creatures come to you, you stare across at the thick Forest and wonder what lurks deep within it? Now as you stare within the thick Forest, what you don’t realize at the time is, all the crap and stress within you is leaving, as you now focus on something intriguing. You then notice that the water before you is getting a bit rough, with the white tops of the waves, but still no concern for alarm, as you are so hypnotized of your surroundings and are so relaxed, you really don’t care of what may come, because your thoughts have become consumed by more positive then negative, which then has you in a space that you do not want to leave. The beauty of the Rocky shore within that uncharted beach, where only a few may have traveled to and with those few, they are the ones that have found the true beauty within all the paths, of this journey through life.


” That uncharted rocky beach may look rough at first sight, but look deeply into what you see and truly see all the beauty within it”

” Look deeply into this picture and truly see the true colors of this journey through life”

” When you transform yourself and be who you truly are, then all the weights from this ugly society will be lifted helping you see the good society within it”

” No radio’s or cellphones required in order to see all the true beauty that is around you”



Camping season….a time for peace and serenity


With the up coming weather of the next couple days and the amount of snow they are predicting for the North East, right around the corner and waiting for us outdoors type, is the coming of camping season, with all the peace and serenity you need, to clear your head from all the crap and get yourself out from Winter’s coma, so you can get back to being of truly who you are and escaping the daily grind, to refuel and recharge.

With campsites like this and the need of a boat to get to it, you can have all the peace and serenity you need. Stepping out of the tent in the morning and brewing the coffee, as you sit lazily by the water, to listen to the beauty all around you, plus watch and listen to all the animals wake to the morning with you. Listening to the Loons if you have never heard them? Is a beauty of it’s own to listen to. Watching the Eagles fly over head as they look within the water for their morning meal, maybe a Moose coming to the water’s edge, for it’s daily splash, OH!!! and watch out for the Bear also, just stay at a safe distance to watch their daily routine also. This is all the true beauty within Nature, of which you will never see, if you just stay within the city lights.

Some may go to a campsite and say they are camping in their trailers, yes you are in the woods, but you are on wheels and within a campground with others around. The true peace and serenity is camping deep within the woods, where your technology doesn’t work, so you can be one with Nature and the surroundings around you. When you sit by the fire and hear the crackling of the fire and all the sounds of Nature around you, without any people noises interrupting you, now you can truly clear your mind, body and soul from all the crap, then replace it true beauty. Relaxation at it’s finest as you sit within nature deep within the woods, sitting by a crackling fire, while you let all the daily grind and the stress from that grind, flow completely out from your body, so you than can truly refuel and recharge.

Some may say it is too much work to set up all that equipment for a few days, but if you just look at it as fun to get out within Nature, you will never look at it as work, only as, setting up your own personal spot, full of peace and serenity. I know some may complain of the snow that have been predicted for the next couple days, so if you break down each year to within four seasons as it truly is already, then you will find that getting through a season you may not care for, will only be temporary, til the season comes once again that you enjoy tremendously. Camping season for me lasts three of the four seasons, so getting through one season don’t seem as bad, as some would like to think, as for a few short months of snow and cold, will soon enough break, so camping season will be front and center once again.

The Forest, the plant life, the lakes and the streams, the mountains, the cool brisk morning air, giving away to the sunshine of the day, the tent, the camp fire and the setting up of the camp site, now your being one with Nature to unwind and clear your head of all the crap, then you can totally relax your mind, body and soul, so you can truly recharge and refuel, to move forward along your path better and stronger, throughout this journey of life.


” Being one with Nature will help you find the true peace and serenity throughout this journey”

” The nature walks, the camp fire and the sounds of nature, just what the doctor ordered, to fix yourself and recharge your batteries”

” Camping inside of a tent is not so bad, especially when you have a cot within the tent”

” The camp fire is not just too keep you warm from the brisk night sky, it is the ambiance of the whole camping experience”


Words of Scripture are there to inspire the good



” His Disciples recalled the words of the Scripture, Zeal for your house will consume me.”

Jn 2: 17

” The Crown of Jesus Christ appears to us in many ways and through multiple signs, which is why we always need to look deeply into what we see”



When Jesus came back to the house of his father and house where Joseph and Mary had brought him as a baby, only to find the lying, the cheating, the buying and the selling for great taxes, everything that basically shows great disrespect for his father and leading towards nothing but hatred of each other, You bet Jesus was angry and upset, which led to him to driving this mess out of his house, so he could further the words of his father, while he continued to lead us all to the path of righteousness. 

Jesus also was tempted by the force of temptation, just as we today are tempted daily from this great force, the only difference being, Jesus stayed true to his self, stayed true to the strong faith inside himself. which gave him the hope to over come this force of temptation. There will be many forms of temptations that will come and try to derail us from the train tracks of life, with Greed and hatred taking center stage of all the ugliness, but with the complete faith not only of ourselves, but with Jesus Christ as well, there will always be hope for each of us, moving forward along our paths, through this journey of life, in peace and happiness always.

It is true that through all this ugliness around us today and the fact that, being so far removed from the journey of Jesus Christ, that we have definitely let the force of temptation control of who we truly are. Yes this temptation is a powerful force and will consume us within its clutches, but the force of good and doing the right thing, is even more powerful and all we need to do is, not only have complete faith in ourselves, but have complete faith in Jesus Christ, so we than can truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, which will then give us the hope to keep moving forward on our paths, through this journey of life.

The biggest difference between the force of temptation and the force of good is, Temptation is evil, temptation will stop you from being of truly who you are and temptation will, strip you from all your inner peace and dignity. The force of good will totally have you feel deeply within your heart and soul, the warmth of the love of Jesus Christ, that is within us all. Through the power of good, there will be no evil, no ugliness and the love will consume us, instead of all the hatred. Through the power of good, it will bring much happiness and love to us all, who walk a path through this journey of life.

The crown of Jesus Christ is in place to remind us all of his suffering for each of us, whether your a believer or not, the crown will keep coming to us in many ways and through the signs, they will prove even further that, the good is always more powerful than the evil, with the evil only being temporary, so we can only come to appreciate the good even more, with each step we take throughout this journey of life.


” When you totally believe in yourself and Jesus Christ, the warmth of his love will always warm your heart and soul forever”

” The house of the Lord is a place of respect and dignity, everything else need not enter the house of the Lord”

” You will always have temptation and good, or evil versus good, with the forces of both being very strong, but the forces of good is always stronger and from the heart”

” The crown of Jesus Christ is everywhere around us, you just have to look deeply into what you see”











To Explore, it is what we do………



Since the beginning of Mankind, we have always been Explorers. No matter of who you are, where you are from, we have always gone to far away places and explored what we normally do not see. Columbus…….. Magellan to name a couple from yesteryear, these Individuals boarded their ships and explored many places including, what we now know as the United States of America. Exploring is who we are, some may go to an exotic place with sands, sun and fun, while others who are more adventurous, may go to places of uninhabited, where there are no luxuries, or others to pamper them, instead they pitch a tent and build a campfire, then go out and explore the new territory  around them. Once camp is set, then it is time to break out the fishing gear and catch the days meal, to cook over the open fire, when dinner is served, it is time to totally relax to the sounds of Nature.

We of today’s Society don’t do much exploring anymore, as a matter of fact, if we don’t know of where we are going, we then do not go. The thought of walking along the shore of an Island in the middle of no where scares the crap out of most, simply because nobody knows how to truly live of the land anymore, away from our technological devices. The children of today have no clue of what it was like with no cell phone in their hands, if they can’t get to where they want to go, then they stay where they are and won’t even attempt to walk to where they want to go. We within today’s Society have become so used to all the technology, that we have totally forgotten of what it is to truly explore what is around us, throughout this journey of life.

We have to blaze our own paths through this journey and when we have become too lazy to do any blazing, then this journey will pass us by and won’t even look back at who it has left behind. Now a lot of times we get side tracked or stuck in a rut, or maybe one of life’s many events will have us confused, to which we lose our since of direction? This is when we need to stay strong to who we are, dig down deep so we than can keep moving forward, away from what is trying to hold us back, away from the ruts and explore our way around, to truly find the direction for which we want to go.

We all get so consumed in this World of today, like working morning, noon and night just to try to make ends meet, that we never take any ” me” time, or time to get out and explore what is truly around us to the point that, when we do actually take some down time, we either don’t know truly of how to handle it, or we just sit within our comfortable rut, that we never take the time to go out and truly explore what is around us. This journey through life has many avenues within it, also has many directions for which to take us, but if we never take the time to explore any of it, then life itself will pass us by, without even a wave on the way by.


” Step out of your circle or your comfortable rut, get out and explore what is truly around you”

” Technology has made us into someone we truly are not, as we work morning, noon and night to be able to afford it and stops us from truly exploring all that is around us”

” To explore is more than just going to a new Bar for a different kind of drink, it’s stepping out of your comfort zone and to experience things you normally would never explore”

” Explore is what we do, to be stuck in a rut and never step out to explore is not of who we are”
