Strong powerful leadership

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The American Bald Eagle is a big, strong and powerful bird that rules the sky, this bird isn’t our symbol because it is weak, this bird is our symbol, cause it is a true symbol for those of which it represents.  I love this picture on so many levels, but the biggest thing is, just how majestic this bird is, not too mention of how cool this picture is of the Eagle watching out for all that is below.

President Donald Trump last night with his speech, showed just what a true Leader is all about, someone that is not afraid to stand his ground for all who he serves, someone that knows how to delegate and get the job done. Someone who is not afraid to stand up to a Bully or a Terrorist and someone who is smart enough to give our armed service men and woman, the tools and resources needed, so they can do their jobs correctly. You want to end all the ugliness that is around us all today, it starts with a true Leader, that knows how to lead and has all our best interests in mind with his actions.

You want an example of failed Leadership, you don’t have to look any further, then the failed Leadership of the National Football League, here is a guy by the name of Roger Goodell. This guy collects a handsome salary, but yet lacks the skills needed to lead an organization. Right now in the NFL you have player’s that will refuse to stand to the National Anthem? Really!!! These players are getting paid ridiculous amounts of money playing a game. These players are blessed with a talent and the ability to play a sport that they love, but yet they are so dumb when they use their sport, to highlight their platform. There is a time and a place for everything, just that a sporting event is no place to protest against the music of your country, especially when your getting paid big money within that Country you are playing in. I am aware of this thing called ” freedom of speech”, but when your playing a sport you love and for big money as well, not too mention looked up to as a role model to guide the young and steer them in the right direction, you have to pick your battles wisely and do your protests in other venues. Now if the NFL had a true Leader, just maybe these Individuals who refuse to stand for the National Anthem of a Country, who many have died, just so they can get paid big money to play a sport which they love, will no longer get to play their sport. It’s a respect thing and if you want others to respect you, then you need to respect all that is around you. Just maybe the Coaches of these teams should stand up to these Individuals and simply not let them play and have them become a bench warmer, for those who show respect for the National Anthem of the country for which they play.

President Donald Trump is quickly becoming one of the best Presidents of my lifetime. He is someone that does what he says and says what he means. President Trump is a Business man yes………. but to be as successful as he has been, you not only have to be smart, you have to be able to be a great leader, that can adapt to any situation, as well as know how to delegate to those around you, so you can focus on what you need to focus on, then you can walk your path of this journey through life, to be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Some may be born to be a leader, but a true leader is never born”

” The American Bald Eagle……. So majestic but yet so powerful, a great symbol for America showing strength and freedom, while soaring the skies so graceful”

” Failed leadership will never work, as it will only compound the issues and bring out the ugliness instead of beauty”

” To be respected you first need to respect moving forward throughout this journey”

 

Solitude versus Loneliness

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

This Birch tree sitting on it’s own little island may seem lonely at first glance, but it is vibrant and full of life as you can see, it has other plant life around it, just that they all use their space wisely and coexist within a tight space.

We within this Society of today, really have no clue anymore the difference between solitude and loneliness. Solitude is finding that quiet space so you can collect your thoughts, turn the negative thoughts into positive thoughts, so we than can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward and while being vibrant and full of life like this Birch tree. Being lonely is not having anywhere to turn when in need, not knowing of how to find that place of solitude, so you than can turn your negatives into positives. Not truly knowing of how to deal with others, so you can have a place to lean when the need is there. Being lonely is a place that will have us stew with our negative thoughts, then one day with all the negativity…………Boom!!! we erupt  into someone we truly are not. Loneliness is a place we get into, simply because we think it is safer to bury our feelings, instead of letting them out and expressing ourselves deeply, which then leaves us in a less vibrant position, then the position this Birch tree is, in this picture.

Loneliness is something we do when we want to escape to where we think safety is? Usually it is a place we go and put up this force field not letting anything or anybody within this field. We get so lost within that, not only do we not let anybody in, we then get lost as to how to get out of the loneliness, our negative thoughts then become dominate and we become someone we truly are not. Within this Society of many and when we are all lost within this loneliness, will bring out all the ugliness of which we are living now.

We don’t truly communicate with each other anymore and a big part of that is the Political Correction that engulfs us today, simply because we are so afraid to offend each other, we then move forward in this loneliness, which furthers us deeper into our own little world of loneliness. The Political Correction has forced us into this loneliness, which then has us all stewing deeply with all our negative thoughts, instead of changing the negativity into a positive. There are so many different factors to walking this journey, that if we don’t truly understand all the factors, we will wander through blindness, instead of walking peacefully along this journey through life.

There is so much loneliness within this Society, we need to start addressing it properly, so we all can get to our own places of solitude and then, we can start turning our negatives into positives. Until we start learning the real difference between loneliness and solitude, none of us will ever get to that happy place, which will then leave all the ugliness in the rear view mirror. We can and will get to our place of Solitude, but we first need to, see past all the ugliness, the hurt and the pain, see past all this Political Correction that engulfs us, communicate better with each other, so we than can find true solitude, which will then lead us onto a smooth path to walk, along this journey through life.

 

” Solitude is a happy place for us to go and mend ourselves of all negativity and fill us with the positive thoughts needed to walk smoothly along this journey”

” Loneliness is a place we go that we think is safe to escape reality and stew within our negative thoughts”

” Sometimes we need to get away from everything so we can recharge, change our negative thoughts into positive thoughts and heal ourselves to move forward better and stronger”

” This Political Correction that has engulfed all we do has hurt us deeply within more than we really think, time to change and end this process before it ends each one of us and our mental thought process”

 

All the Ugliness needs to end within this Society.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

In today’s Society there is way too much drama and ugliness, Whenever someone becomes hurt, there are many that will exploit their hurt just so they can seem more powerful than they truly are. We just like the Animal Kingdom will pray on the weak, so we ourselves can look powerful to those around us. It is a dog eat dog World out there and we the People are the ones totally responsible for letting it get to the level it has reached.

There are many places around the globe that many have settled and have become cramped, as the living spaces for which we live, are as close to each other than they really should be, this only breeds the ugliness further, as there is no true privacy anymore, everybody becomes engulfed in the others situations, we all are guilty of the ” it’s not me” scenarios, just to make ourselves look less guilty than the other. but when we buy into living spaces so close to each other, this gives us no choice but to get consumed with all the ugliness within this Society. With all these close quarter living spaces, it gives each of us more opportunity to hate on each other, simply because there is no space to breathe in  and breathe out normally, so we can relax and take the time to fix our everyday needs. So as we go through this journey of life without the ample time to fix and mend properly, now you have many within a Society burying deeply all their issues, hiding truly of who we are from all the rest of Society and with that, you now have a broken Society that is in need of a major fix, with no true peace and happiness anywhere.

Very true there are many places out there to explore and get lost within true peace, not all roads are cluttered with vehicles to the point you are stopped from moving forward, instead of being closed minded to all that is around you, be more open minded and truly look deeply into all that is around you. there is so much more to this World and Society, then of what we may think in our everyday grind, we are so close minded today, we then let ourselves become consumed with the ugliness, instead of truly being of who we are and seeing everything around us with an open mind. This journey of life is of what we make it and when we are so close minded, then this journey will be about the ugliness and crap we see today, but when we fix what we need to fix, keep an open mind of everything around us, then the ugliness and hurt, will then be replaced with peace and happiness, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

There are many roads within this Society that are still left to explore, we first have to bury the hate, stop living within the drama and ugliness, so we than can see the true beauty of what is around us. When we see all the true beauty, then we can truly go out and explore, finding that there is so much more to this World and Society, than what we see within the ugliness of today. I get we all want to live in the now, but when the now is full of ugliness and drama, then something needs to change, like we ourselves in how we look at everything around us. This journey through life is all about beauty as God wanted us to see, but the ugliness we have created as people of this Society, has even God disappointed at what we are doing to what he has created for us. The time is now for us all to change, end all this hate of each other, end all this ugliness and drama we have created, so we than can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness always, as we see nothing but true beauty, instead of ugliness and hatred.

 

” End all the ugliness, end all the hate, end all the drama, so we all can walk this journey in peace”

” Not all roads are cluttered that will stop us from moving forward, we just have to move past them so we can open up the roads for safe travel”

” Ugliness and hate will do nothing but keep us all from truly moving forward, time to change totally so we all can see nothing but peace and happiness”

” Time to stop  being consumed by the hate and ugliness, time to see past this crap so we can see all the true beauty around us”

 

A piece of History……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The delivery of the History lesson and the way the teacher teaches the lesson………… Okay it might need some excitement brought into the lesson, but when you simply go out within Nature and explore, makes for a great way to learn all the History you want to learn about.

Rockwood is a small town within northern Maine at the tip of Moosehead lake toward the north and not far from the Canadian border. It is always fun to learn of these places, where you don’t venture to all that often, so you can see how the town was born, what resources came from this town and who was the first settlers of this town. Maine is one of those States that is full of History, some maybe you do know, but a lot you never knew. When some come here for a visit a lot of times they don’t take the time to truly learn of the History, only they jump into their boats and go so fast, the History goes right over their heads, without them really learning of where they are.

Yes the Ice Age was real and something that truly happened along this journey through life, this life evolves in cycles and each cycle is round, so over time, there are times that keeps repeating itself, just like the life cycle of each one of us, within our cycles there are the up’s as well as the down’s, things happen to us within our cycles for a reason and it is us that needs to find the reason, so we can be better informed as our cycle turns round and round, the same goes for the cycles within the journey as well, they also happen for a reason and unless we understand truly the reason, we will never truly understand any History that is right in front of us.

History has proven time and time again, that the Native Indian here in America was here first, it is us the White man that invaded them and pushed ourselves into their home. We cut down all the tree’s, developed all the land and all simply for the greed, then once we got a taste of the greed, we then let the greed control truly of who we are. Okay there have been some of our elected officials over the History of these United States that actually had a brain and with that brain, they have declared some of the land here a National land or park, where it is protected from any development, so there are is still some true beauty for us to get out and explore, but that still doesn’t make it right that we invaded and developed a good chunk of this land and all in the name of greed.

True that all this land within North America is rich with resources that we need, but there is a difference between taking the resources to make our lives better and taking the resources, just to line our pockets with greed. The biggest problem with the History of this great land of America is, we the People………. We the People have destroyed a big chunk of this land, just for the greed and could care less of any History that the land may hold. Mount Kineo was formed from the Ice Age of over 10,000 years ago, it was a place the Native Americans fished, hunted and gathered the Kineo Rhyolite, which is a durable stone for them to make their tools, this was also considered one of the best finds in all of North America. It is fun to learn of all this History and even more fun, to get out and explore as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

In the 1800’s the Moose river to Moosehead lake became the premier waterways for reaching all the logging roads within the woods of Maine and Rockwood, became the staging grounds for the full scale logging operations. Rockwood is truly a beautiful place and when you really learn of it’s History, makes it even more beautiful a place to visit and get away from the daily grind.

Every State within these United States is rich with their own History and to truly learn of the History, we need to get out and explore, instead of just developing the land, to fill our pockets with the greed, or not truly focusing on the history and getting lost within the journey for which we walk.

 

” Mount Kineo is one of those hidden gems, that most have no idea of what or even where it is”

” The native American was here first, as we the white man invaded and took their homes away from them”

” There are many places like Rockwood throughout this country, just that we have to get out and explore to see all the true beauty”

” There is much wildlife throughout the area of northern Maine, with the American Bald Eagle taking up residence there as well”

” The American Bald Eagle is such a big powerful bird and is fun to just sit and watch as they fly through the sky with the greatest of ease”

 

Trust the focus and focus the trust……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Peter said to him in reply, ” Lord if it is you, command me to come to you on the water”, he said, “come ” Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus”.

Mt 14:28-29

 

When Peter got out of the boat, he did walk on water as he put his focus and trust in Jesus Christ, but he did start to sink a ways into the walk, as his focus was starting to drift, leaving him to falter with his trust, but when he got back to 100% focus and trust in Jesus, he then began to rise to the top and walk on top of the water once again.

We to as we walk our paths along this journey of life, will falter as Peter did when our focus and trust becomes distorted. Within a broken Society as we are today, with all the crap and ugliness that is around us, makes it very difficult to keep our focus of moving forward, with all the dishonesty and those who will do anything to brain wash you for their benefit, makes it even harder to trust anything/anybody you meet along your path and when there is no focus and no trust of anything or anybody, now we become lost along this journey, with no true direction in which to walk.

Walking through this journey there will be these Life events that will cross our paths, some of these events we can not go around and get sucked in deeper………. Some of these events are brought on by we ourselves, as other events are brought on by others who cross our paths, none the less when these events come to us and we are to focused on the other crap around us, now these events will take control of who we truly are. Then we take to the house of the Lord to help us, but when he doesn’t respond to our S.O.S. Quickly enough, then our focus and trust then falters for him as well, leaving us even more mixed up and out of focus, then we were before. Focus and trust are a big part of who we truly are and without it, then all we are doing is wandering through this journey, instead of being truly who we are and walking passionately along this journey, with meaning and a purpose.

Trust and focus are a big part of who we are as a person walking along this journey. Trust and focus also are big factors in all areas of our life as we walk our paths through this journey. When we want to move ahead in our careers, we first need to focus ourselves on to our jobs, so we can do the best job possible moving forward, then trust in ourselves and those around, to give us the correct information, so we than can apply the information  to make all the correct decisions moving forward. Right now within this broken Society, there is no more real focus or trust, as all we are doing is spewing information, whether it is the correct information or not, plus within this broken Society, we really don’t know who we can truly trust, so we than can focus on moving forward, to be better and stronger as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Let’s look at when you go buy a car, you would like to focus on buying the right car, so you would like to trust in the source of where you are buying, but to them, all you are is a way for them to put money in their pocket, so now your focus is not there so you can make a well informed decision. Another great example of focus and trust are our Elected officials, these are Individuals that will do and say anything, just so you will vote for them on election day and they then go into office for their own agendas, instead of what they said they would do when you voted for them, which then has your trust become non existent and your focus then becomes on all the wrong things and not on what you need, to walk your path of this journey, to be better and stronger.

Focus and Trust are a big part of who we are as a person and when we don’t have either, now this journey through life becomes cloudy with the clouds of our judgments. When the Trust is gone it is very hard to get it back and with no trust, then we become out of focus of all that is around us. Focus and Trust go hand in hand, like Faith and Hope, with no Faith there is no chance of any hope, as with no trust, there will never be anything in focus along our journey. Jesus Christ came to us and showed us just how to walk our paths, as well as teaching us many things as well, our biggest problem is being so far removed from the time of Jesus Christ, that we have lost our trust in him, which then has us out of focus as we walk our paths through this journey. When we have trust in all that is around us, we then can be in focus and see everything more clearly as we walk our paths, making all of us better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

 

” With no faith there is no chance of any hope, as with no trust there will never be anything in focus along our journey”

” You first have to focus on the trust and when there is no trust, then there is nothing to focus on”

” When Peter first stepped on to the water his focus was on the water and sinking, not on the true source of the trust which was Jesus Christ”

” Without the trust we then have misinformation, which then gives us something to falsely focus on”

 

 

How Beautiful life really is……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I sit here looking out on to the lake, forget what day it is and who cares what time it is, of whatever day? All the worries and the stress just seem to melt away, as you look out on to the lake, with the sun’s glitter moving ever so slowly. You hear the Loons of in the distance ( which are the Maine state bird), chatting with each other, then as you look toward the sky, an American Bald Eagle goes flying over head with the greatest of ease, an adult mature Eagle at that, with the white head, tail and the golden beak. How beautiful life really is, without the crap of the everyday drama and the stress that comes with our 9 to 5’s, or within the cities of our Society.

We are truly blessed to be able to walk our paths through this journey of life, just that we get so consumed with the crap and the ugliness, that we don’t take the time to truly see and look deeply into what is around us. There is so much more to life than what we may think? Or what we think we may know from our daily grind? There is a whole new World out there, just that we need to stop, slow down and really look deeply into what we see. Yes technology has taken over and with that the Media thinks they have to share “ALL” the crap, just so they can fill their pockets with greed. We the People as much as we don’t think are the ones in control of our own destiny’s.

When the water is calm, the Oar passes through the the water like a hot knife through butter, with each stroke of the Oar, now you move forward within your canoe and the sound of the Oar passing through the water is so relaxing, even though you are working to go from point A to point B. Although when you paddle the Oar slowly, now you can enjoy whatever animal that may come to the lakes shore, for their daily splash and drink. Simply because you are being as quiet as a Church Mouse, not to scare or startle the beauty you are looking at.

Look out on to the Lake and see the shore on the other side, what is over there you wonder? Maybe other Camper’s? Maybe a Moose or Deer, or maybe a Bear, just like on the side your on? Then you think just how nice this is, to be able to share this beauty with other species. There is so much more to this journey through life than our daily grind and a lot more species also walk their paths through this journey with us, we are not alone, but we carry on like we are alone with our current actions, instead of really looking deeply into into what we see, as we walk our paths through this journey through life.

 

” The American Eagle so Majestic and beautiful, flying through the air with the greatest of ease”

” The sounds of the Loon may be different to those who do not know of the bird, but these sounds do relax if you just sit and listen”

” Blessed be God for all this true beauty, so we can get out and enjoy all that is around us”

” The Oar passing through the calm water is so soothing and relaxing, helps make the stress and the drama just melt away”

 

Just pause and simply be kind!!!

When Jesus came to us and walked his journey, he never got caught up in all the hatred, he never had bad words of who was around him, when others around him took to this practices, all he did was to pray as he showed nothing but love for them and all else around them. Jesus walked among us with just the clothes on his back, as he spread his fathers words and love to us all, he never spoke Ill of those who didn’t believe, he only kept spreading the love of God, that is within us all.

Another summer is near to a close, with the season of fall right around the corner. With that……… Another school year is about to open as the children go back to school. Now for some some children this brings a lot of anxiety as they dread walking within the corridors of their school. Schools can be a very happy place for some, as for others it can a very scary place, that brings much pain and tears. Children of all ages can be very cruel to each other, especially when they try hard just to fit in themselves. Peer Pressure is a very powerful force that will engulf and control all those within it’s grasp, it will also force you into being someone you really are not, all while you create a “VICTIM”, as you Bully them in front of those you so want to try to fit into with. When you become a Bully yourself, now you become addicted to the power and will stop at nothing to continue this behavior, so you can seem at first glance to ones you are trying to impress, as a very powerful person and they need you within their Cliche. A Bully is nothing but a Coward that has pain deep within themselves, of which they are to scared to face themselves, a Bully is also a person like those in which they Bully, There is no one that is more powerful than anyone, as we all walk a path, here along this journey through life.

We have all been a Victim of being bullied at some point in our lives, we all know the pain and suffering that comes with being bullied, then why do we all do nothing of this behavior? Why are we all so caught up in the ugliness, without seeing the true beauty around us? Why do we let ourselves be so consumed with trying to achieve the power over all? What really does having all the power bring? When our children do things wrong and are caught Bullying those around them, then why do we always say, ” he/she is a good person and will never do that”? These are all legit questions for each of us and questions that we as a Society need to really look deeply into. We as a Society are responsible for all the Bullies out there and we as a Society can end all the Bulling now. Our words and our actions have created all these Bullies, as well as all the ugliness around us, the time is now to end all this crap, the time is now to seriously change our words and what we say, as well as thinking deeply of our words, before we take the action of our words.

Being a Bully is a sickness and we as a Society have the Antidote to end this sickness. Each and every one of us needs to stand up against all Bullies no matter of who they are, so they can cower away like the true Coward they are. Then we all need to truly change our ways, change the words we say and really Change, the way we take action of our words, let’s show more Empathy of each other, so the love of God within us, can spread like wildfire among us. When Jesus came and walked his path among us, he showed us just how to walk peacefully, while we have empathy of each other, he showed us that the love of God is within us, we just have to truly feel it, so we than can spread it among each other, he never showed us how to hate, as this is on us as a Society, because we have lost all faith and have given up, so we then take to being consumed in the ugliness, just so we can hide within ourselves, instead of being who we  truly are. This journey is not really that hard, it is we as a Society that have made it hard, the time is now to walk our paths correctly as Jesus showed us, so we all can walk our paths peacefully and within happiness, throughout this journey of life.

 

” It is much harder learning to hate, then letting the kindness and the love already within us just flow naturally from us”

” The time is now to end all Bullies and it will take each of us within this broken Society”

” The power of a Bully requires the fear from a Victim, with less Victims, there will be less Bullies”

” Being a Bully is a Sickness and each of us within this Society, has the Antidote to this sickness”
