Gaze into the Wild Blue Yonder

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

As we Gaze into the wild blue Yonder that is the sky,

what is it that we truly see?

Do we look deeply into what we see or just Gaze out and see something different,

God created these beautiful mountains not just for us to look at,

but for the mountains to Wander inside us to be better and stronger moving forward,

Hiking any mountain is always Peace and Serenity when we look deep enough,

it is not about the work we do to reach the Summit of the mountain,

As we start the journey to the Summit of the mountain,

we prepare ourselves and our supplies for a safe journey to the Summit,

Hiking a mountain is a way for us to cleanse ourselves from the crap of our lives,

it is a way for us to unwind and clear our minds to look deeply into what we see,

We start out on a path through the Woods but what we don’t see is,

everything in these woods is living and breathing as we do on our journey,

The plant life, the little critter’s or sometimes a bigger Species if we are lucky,

The different kinds of Birds flying through the Tree’s so graciously,

The pesky little bugs that annoy us as we walk further into the woods,

With all this they to walk their journey like us on their paths they choose,

As we walk the path to the Summit there are many obstacles to overcome,

like fallen Tree’s from past storms that we have to step over,

or the many rocks that have rolled down from the summit over time,

sometimes these paths are groomed for us but sometimes we have to groom as we go,

This is part of the experience as we journey to the Summit of the mountain,

All while we walk this path and look around at all God’s beauty he created for us,

Our minds tend to wander and we notice our thoughts begin to change,

we start to forget what our troubles are and begin to think of the beauty around us,

we start to look deeply into what we see instead of judging what is around us,

we don’t look at things as an object which is what is wrong with Society,

we see everything for what it truly is and not what we think it is,

Then suddenly we notice the Tree’s getting smaller and eventually,

disappearing from around us and being replaced with the high elevation tundra,

yes flowers can grow at high elevation as well as grass,

but they are more delicate and if we step on them it will take years to grow back,

Once we get into the higher elevation the tree’s are gone and replaced with little shrubs,

The Gaze into the wild blue Yonder now gets to the point of taking our breathe away,

the beauty of looking deeply into what we see becomes greater than we ever imagined,

As we step over the rocks that make up the Summit we can see the Summit more clearly,

we now become more excited to reach the Summit of our journey,

We now have feelings of excitement as we are closer to our accomplishment,

We now see bigger Birds like maybe a Hawk or an Eagle the beauty of the sky,

Watching these Birds soar through the sky with the greatest of ease,

just simply more beauty on this planet of God’s creation,

We also start to notice we have changed our sight to looking deeply into,

instead of seeing superficially at what is around us,

if only we could acknowledge this in our everyday lives,

just maybe this whole Society could change for the better as well,

Now that we are on the final stages of reaching our accomplishment of the Summit,

we now are looking at everything around us even that of what we see miles away,

we are not just looking at what is in front of us we are focusing on what is to become,

when we do this within our everyday lives we all can be better along this journey of life,

Now that we are on the Summit and have accomplished our goal,

the journey hasn’t ended and we need now to achieve the next goal,

first take in all the beauty that is around us,

second we know have to make the Trek down and back to our realities of life,

If we all could change here on our path of this journey through life,

just like we did as we accomplished the Summit of the mountain,

just maybe we all can walk our paths of this journey through life,

with the same Peace and Serenity we walked the path to the Summit of the mountain.

 

 

 

” Don’t just gaze into the wild blue Yonder, look deeply into what you see to truly see what you are seeing”

” Change is everywhere around us, we just have to acknowledge it so we can truly look deeply into what we see”

” The Peace and Serenity that is within the great outdoors, can also be with us along our paths of this journey through life, we just have to look deeply into what we see”

 

 

The Lonesome Heart

The Heart becomes cold without acknowledging the love that warms it up,

Every Heart has love within it which warms our Souls for all that is around us,

God gave us this Heart so we all can feel his love for us and share it with all,

A Heart that is cold leads us to not feeling our true emotions,

with feelings of Depression that keeps us from being true to ourselves,

A Lonesome Heart is a Depressed Heart that we lose the feeling of warmth it brings,

A Lonely Heart will lead us into feelings of Depression, isolation and being inadequate,

With feelings of Depression and Isolation it brings low self confidence,

with no Faith in whatever we do,

Whenever there is no Faith then no Hope is right there beside it,

Hope and Faith are always together and without them we become lost,

The Lonesome Heart without warmth makes us bitter to all that is around us,

Without that warmth we lose the true feeling of what Love truly is,

There are many factors that come to us along our paths of this journey,

It are these factors that turn our Hearts into a Lonely Heart,

It is we the Individual that turn our Hearts lonely with the choices we make,

as we walk our paths and deal with these factors,

Sometimes these factors are so over whelming that we let them consume us,

We let these factors control who we truly are and become lost within ourselves,

When all we have to do is Trust our Faith in ourselves,

so we then can have Hope moving forward and feel the warmth of the Heart,

We may think the Heart just beats and helps our blood flow through us,

it is that kind of thinking that leads to the Lonesome Heart,

The Heart is filled with God’s love and fills our Souls with warmth,

When we feel the warmth of this love, we then can share with all around us,

To truly feel the warmth of the Heart will keep us in touch with our true Empathy,

Which then keeps the Heart from being Lonely and turning cold full of Hate,

A Lonesome Heart doesn’t have to be Lonesome,

we as Individuals can control the Temperature with our actions,

Our choices will also be better along our paths when we are in control,

When we truly feel the warmth of God’s love within our hearts,

We then will have faith with hope in all we do along our paths,

of this journey through life and the Heart will never be Lonesome again.

 

 

” A Lonesome Heart is only lonesome when we lose touch with God’s love within the heart and don’t let it warm our Souls deep within ourselves”

” With the lonesome heart comes depression, isolation, no faith, no hope, which then leads us to bitterness and hate”

” The heart does more than pump blood throughout us, it is full of love that warms our Souls and helps us get in touch with our true Empathy”

 

The Beauty of a Rose

" Spread more love and this beauty will be seen by all"

“There is true beauty, within this World full of hatred” ” God created this World for us to see the true beauty, not for us to ruin his creation” 

 

The Rose a symbol of beauty, starts out as a simple Bud,

When the bush is well taken care of then you see it’s beauty.

the Bud is born as we watch it mature into a beautiful flower,

the soft pedals of the Rose shows just how delicate the Rose is,

the fragrance of the Rose lightens up everything that is around it,

the bush has it’s defense from all that abuses it,

the Thorns will prick you and make you bleed,

when you abuse the bush that brings such beauty,

everything has a defense to things that try to harm and abuse,

the mother Deer defends it;s baby Fawn from whatever comes to harm,

we Humans will defend ourselves to all that comes to harm,

sometimes we get caught off guard and the beauty becomes lost,

everything becomes lost within the pain of the harm,

which has the true beauty hide deep within,

instead of shining as bright as it should on the outside,

true beauty just doesn’t happen, it has to blossom like the Rose,

everything has this true beauty deep within it’s core,

it has to be nourished and cared for to unleash it throughout,

through Hate nothing will ever blossom like the Rose,

as Hate only has things hide deep within while using our defenses,

when all gets to blossom and is fully nourished and cared for,

the true beauty of everything comes out and shines bright,

with a Fragrance that makes everything happy and peaceful,

throughout all the paths of this journey through life.

 

” The beauty of a Rose so peaceful and with happiness throughout”

” The Rose is a symbol of beauty, that unleashes its true beauty from within”

” through Hate this beauty becomes lost and the pain from the harm hurts deep within, further pushing the true beauty deeper within”

 

 

Illegal…. a word that some don’t understand

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

There are many paths throughout this journey of life, with these paths comes times that everything around us doesn’t seem beautiful as it should be. The paths and bridges we cross, become run down and old, the view of everything around seems stale and ugly, but yet we become lazy and unwilling to fix what we need to fix, so the vibrancy comes back to us and we all can be better and stronger moving forward.

I understand there are some that want to get out of where they are, move to a different location, so they can have a better journey through life, but what I don’t understand is, why do some expect other’s to take care of them, while they try to go unnoticed in their new location? Currently there are millions of Illegals within the United States, we know they are here, but yet no one is doing anything about it, meanwhile these “Illegals” are robbing the hard working Citizen of all they deserve, is this the fair way to walk your path of this journey through life? The word Illegal should be a signal to you, saying you are doing something wrong, but yet here in this Country you are rewarded for doing something wrong. The Administration of our President, went into the U.S. Supreme Court, for Illegal Immigrants today (which cost the hard working citizen), so as to stop the deportation of them, why? simply because they had a child or children here on our soil and even though the child is a Citizen, the Parents are not, hello….. can you see the writing on the wall, they come here just to have a child, cause they know we won’t send them back. What the biggest problem here is, the fact that the child is becoming a pawn on the chess board of life, instead of being truly loved like the way that child should be loved without question and then becomes deeply hurt inside, Immigration is fine but done the right way. This Country was built on Immigration and what helped our Fore Fathers  grow this Country better and stronger, but they also started a process to follow for the Immigrant, I think we should get back to that process, to help fix America and make it great once again.

Try to cross over into Mexico without the proper paperwork……. you get put into jail cause you are doing something wrong, why can’t this Country do the same? If you don’t want to work at becoming a “legal” Citizen, then you deserve to be deported back to where you came from. You want to be a Free loader, go back to your Country and free load from your own People, Oh!!! they don’t allow it? Then why the heck should we allow it as well. It is time for our Leaders of this Country to grow a backbone, actually do the job they were voted in to do and fix what needs to be fixed, work together and stop bickering with each other, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life peacefully, with happiness every where we go.

 

” Immigration when done correctly can and will help growth of all around to be better and stronger moving forward”

” the word Illegal means you are doing something wrong, which means you need to change what you are doing”

 

It’s Distracting

 

Distractions come from anywhere or anything around us, as we walk our paths of this journey through life, but none more dangerous than as we drive our Vehicles, especially on the road ways today.

The way People drive today, it makes me wonder if the Registry of Motor Vehicles are handing out Licenses free of charge? Then you add in all the Technology going into the cars today, no wonder why we have a Distracted driving problem on the roads today. Distracted driving should be treated exactly like Drinking and Driving, as they both have you not paying attention to what is in front of you. So far fourteen States passed a Distracted Driver Law, why haven’t all the other States caught up to those Fourteen? Now if you look deeply into what you see and apply your Common Sense, this should be a no Brainer, but seriously we shouldn’t have to have a Law, to tell us what our Common Sense should be telling us, the fact is that we have let Technology make us all lazy within this Society. Now with most of the speed limits on the roads today being either 55 or 65 and all feel like doing 80, then add in a Cell phone in your hand, whether talking or texting, this is a recipe for diseaster. There is no argument worth arguing that you can do both, simply saying that driving at 55 plus and with a cell phone in hand, you can not focus on what is in front of you, the bottom line is you are increasing your chances of being hurt or even worse, hurting those that are around you. I have a Bluetooth speaker phone in my car and when I get in my car, it syncs up with my phone and when someone texts me, it sends an auto reply, telling the person I am driving and will get back to you later, there is nothing more important in this world, then you reaching your destination safely.

The fact is that when we get behind the wheel of a Vehicle, we forget about everything/everyone around us and think everything revolves around me. Distracted driving isn’t just having a cell phone in hand it can also be, getting behind a wheel after an argument with a loved one or close friend? Now your driving aggressively within your thoughts and not focusing on what is in front of you, there are many factors that can affect us behind the wheel and all these factors, can and will have an affect on the way we drive. Distracted driving is very serious and affects us all within this Society, if the only way to stop it is to pass a law with stiff penelties, then I am all In, so we all can be safe to walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Distracted driving is like drinking and driving, both will have you not focusing on what is in front of you”

” we all have become lazy with all this Technology, time to put it away and get back to truly being safe throughout this journey”

“To walk this journey through life, first we need to do it safely so we all can be at peace with happiness”

 

A day of senseless Tragedy

1398913762364

” No more hurting People……….. Peace”.

 

*** Martin Richard***

 

Please as we use this day as a day of remembrance, for such a senseless Tragedy, let us never forget this quote from little eight year old Martin Richard, one of the four who lost his life, at the hands of such a tragic Event.

What this Tragedy truly shows when you look deeply into what you see is, there are some who are completely lost within the clouds of their judgments,  some that because they are hurting deeply inside, have lost touch with what true reality is and it is not just these Individuals that take action of these Tragedies, but it is the ones that brainwash these Individuals, that they to have also become clouded within their judgments as well. These Individuals come from all walks of life, they are not just limited to one Nationality, when they go to become Radicalized, they may go to a certain region, but this in no way should target this region as, a region of ugliness. These leaders of this Terrorist group are so lost within reality that they have taken one sentence within the book of the Koran and twisted it into something it truly is not. The Koran is the book of Faith for all Muslims and no where in this book, does it promote Violence. The Koran to the Muslims, is like the Holy Bible is to the Catholics and both books are the word of God, with both books telling us and guiding us to the true path of righteousness for peace to all, that walk their path of this journey through life.

What happened on September 11, 2001, the Boston Marathon bombings, France and Belgium, are the works of some Individuals that are hurting so deeply inside, that they have lost sight of what true reality is, they are lost within the clouds of their judgments and for them to try to rid themselves of their pain, this is how they believe that they need to be, so they can move forward with no pain? It is not all on the ones that commit these horrendous acts, as it also falls on the Leaders that brainwash them into believing that, if you want freedom from your pain, this is how you become free? The biggest problem with all this is, instead of us trying to truly fix what is wrong, we throughout Mankind hate so much of these Individuals, that we forget that no matter how horrendous of an act they commit, we first have to truly forgive them for their pain. We all throughout Mankind have lost the true meaning of Forgiveness,  true Forgiveness doesn’t mean we have to friend them and hang out with them, True Forgiveness is the feeling of Empathy within us all, that helps us all heal from such tragedies, it helps us feel not just our feelings, but the feelings of others and when we all show this Empathy with each other, then the true healing within all our lives begin.

Peace and Happiness will come to all of us, when we stop all this Hatred, when we start truly being who we truly are, get back in touch with our true Empathy deep within all of us, get back to what the true meaning of Forgiveness is and sharing this forgiveness and Empathy with each other. We all can read a book and then come up with our own version of what we think the book is saying, this is what makes us all unique to each other as Humans, but when we take this Uniqueness and turn it against one another, now you start this word of Hate spreading through all our paths of this journey, which does nothing but spread this ugliness throughout all our lives. The time is now to start start Forgiving each other, start showing more Empathy towards each other, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life in peace and happiness everyday of our existence.

 

” If an eight year old boy can come up with such a powerful quote, then why can’t we all show more forgiveness and empathy of each other”

” Hate is only a word that when we take our uniqueness of each other and turn it against each other, it creates all the ugliness we see around us everyday”

” September 11th, Boston Marathon bombing, France and Belgium, these are all Tragedies that have come to all our lives, we should never forget, so we can fix what is wrong and move forward better and stronger”

” What the Koran is to the Muslims, is what the Holy Bible is to the Catholics and in no way do either of these books promote violence”

 

The whole Voting process

” The grass is not always Greener on the other side”

 

This whole Voting process is so flawed, that it has become Corrupt and easily manipulative. These Candidates know exactly what to say and how to act, just to mislead us and get our vote. Hypocrisy is the word of the day, when you describe any Candidate that runs today, as they say one thing to get our vote, then once they are in office do the complete opposite of what they said, just for their own Personal gain.

During this round of Primary voting leading up to each Parties Convention, each Candidate needs to get to a certain amount of Delegates, so they can be the Nominee for their party, but if they do not get to that number, then the Delegates go to the Convention and vote again for the Candidate? Which then has the Delegates flipping if they choose to and be swayed into voting the way the Powers to be, AKA……. The Establishment wants them to vote, but during this process what actually happens to the popular vote, which is us, the hard working Individuals that makes this Country great. You want ” Real Change”, this is where it begins and it is us the hard working Individuals that can make the ” Real Change” happen.

Once the Nominee for each party has been chosen, now the real election begins and we all go to the Voting Polls once again to vote for an Individual we think is best suited for the office? But hold on, now there is this thing called the Electoral College, which is separate from the Popular vote………Really!!! Now the wrong Individual can get into office with this Electoral College, instead of the one that gets the Popular vote? The Popular vote is all of us hard working people that build this Country, where the Electoral College is where the Powers to be, get their power over all of us, you think we need to take back control of this power, only because these so called Politicians are doing nothing but ruining this Country, all for their own Personal gain. The time is now for the Career Politician to end, put term limits on all offices like that of the President and for us the hard working Individual, to look deeply into what we see, do our homework on each Candidate, so we can make better judgements and vote smarter in the future.

Those who dislike Donald Trump, you can’t ignore the fact that he is totally bringing to the for front, just how Corrupt this Voting process is. Donald Trump may or may not be the right Candidate for President of the United States? He also may be a little rough around the edges with the way he delivers his message, but within this ” Political Correct World” for which we live, it has made us all soft and weak, so when guys like Trump come around, we dislike him and won’t actually take the time to really listen to what he says and through this Political Correction, we have stopped looking deeply into what we see.

These Career Politicians will put together a Healthcare bill and pass it, before they actually see if it is equal to all? You think they actually care who it hurts, when their Healthcare is paid in full by you know who? Us the hard working stiffs within this Country. These same Individuals get paid handsomely by our tax dollars also, but they then think they can make their own hours and not show up for important votes they need to make, which will help all throughout this Country. Should we really vote for Hillary, just so she can be the first Woman President? We already made that mistake when we elected the first Afro American. This makes it even more important that we really make a good judgement and vote for an Individual, that can actually do the job and not make a Tee time at the Country club. It is our duty to stand up to these powers to be, or the Establishment of a party, instead of being their Puppet giving them all the power they want.

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, when we let others have all the power and control, then it is not our paths to walk anymore. Sure the journey is all the same for all of us, but the path then belongs to someone else, as we just wander through with no true direction in which to go. These paths are full of choices for us to make, time we get off our Fannies and start making the right choices, so we all can walk these paths of this journey through life, peacefully and with happiness everyday of our existence.

 

” When we don’t make the right choices along our paths of this journey, We then lose all the power These paths give us”

” Everyday we walk these paths there are choices to make, this is what makes us stronger and better through this journey of life”

” Time to make smarter decisions at the voting booth, so we don’t become a Puppet for the Establishments”

” The power and control is within our grasp, time we grab it back from the so called Establishment”
