Through the bad, there is good.

In this ever changing World for which we live, we to can feel as small as this Salamander looks. This Salamander may look down the path it follows and think, he may never reach the destination which he sets out to reach, being so small and all around him looking so big, he moves along his path with no aspirations or drive, but on the contrary he works hard, moves at his pace and never gives up, leaving him happy and contempt with what he overcomes along his path. Like everything changes for us, it to changes for this little guy, but with perseverance and courage, all change can be for the better, making us and this little guy stronger moving forward.

Within this Society we tend to look at the bad and think nothing good will ever come of it, only because we have become lazy and give up before we even try. A person within this Society who has dreams and goals, buys up a business that is struggling, hires the right people around him and together they build a successful company, for the next twenty years he not only builds up the company further, he builds a respect with his workers, the clients he gathers and other companies around him. Then one day twenty years later, another company comes along see’s how well his business is doing, how clean he keeps his facility and the pride he has doing all this, they make him an offer to buy him out, so they can extend their company further in another region, now this Owner don’t want to disrupt the ones that worked hard and helped him grow the business, so he just doesn’t settle for any offer, he settles on a great offer, that takes care of the employee’s that helped him grow his company. I stumbled into this business a year ago and have worked hard since I have been there, yes it is emotional for all when change comes like this, but this owner wants to give back to his employees by giving them bonuses for their length of time there, yes I am getting my bonus, but the one guy left from twenty years ago, is getting a great bonus and a reward for all his hard work. This is how it should be within this Society, instead we have gone the other way, now true their are good business owners out there, but they are far and few between. These paths we walk through this journey of life can be rough at times, we all get knocked down from time to time, but it is not on how you fall, it has everything to do with how you pick yourself up, dust yourself off, fix what needs to be fixed, so you can move forward better and stronger than before.

Change will come to us in many ways, but change when handled correctly can be the most beautiful thing we will ever go through. Unfortunately in this Society we fear change, only because we have become so lazy to work hard, to let change do what it does best…….. make us better moving forward. This Salamander in this picture can easily give up and become lazy, but he don’t and because of that, he goes along his path with his head held high, works hard every day so he can eventually reach his destination to where he has set is goals, to where he wants to be throughout his journey. There is always a lesson to learn whenever change comes before us along our path, but unless we look deeply into what we see, we will never see the good of the change and always see just the bad, which then forces us to give up, before we even start.

 

” when change comes to us there is a lesson to learn, but only if you look deeply into what you see”

” Never give up as easy as it might be, never become lazy as hard work always has its rewards  and we all can achieve success at all we do”

” there is always good that comes out of the bad, we just have to look deeply into what we see to have the good make us all better and stronger”

 

The Solitude of Camping.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Camping in a tent within the Wilderness is there no better way to get away and unwind,

The quiet Solitude of just kicking back and clearing your mind of all the crap,

sitting in front of a campfire and picking softly on the guitar in tune with nature,

no care of what time it is, nor even when it is time to eat just flowing with nature,

no hustle and bustle or running around, just relax and enjoy your surroundings,

stress? there is none within the world of camping as you get back in touch with reality,

while camping take a nature walk to look deeply and see whats around you,

a good walk within nature is more than exercise as it helps you get in tune with yourself,

A good walk within nature helps you look deeply at what you see around you,

listen to the sweet music of the birds chatting with each other along your path,

a walk within nature is no work at all, as it totally relaxes you and clears your mind,

then as you get back to your campsite, you are ready to fully enjoy what camping is about,

some may not like sleeping in a tent, others sleep like a baby with no interruptions,

sleeping in the wilderness in a tent helps reset the body’s clock,

so you than can get back to truly being who you are,

as you eliminate the crap and get back your true feelings and emotions,

the crackle of the campfire and the blue flame near the hot coals will mesmerize you,

as you go into a trance that totally soothes you from head to toe,

the campfire can put you to sleep or with a group,

you can share stories or even make up some ghostly stories that intrigue you,

it’s all part of the magic of the campfire,

camping like the campfire has it’s magic, but this magic,

will have you clear your mind, body and soul to totally relax and unwind,

the set up of the campsite may take some time depending on what you have,

but once camp is set now it’s time to unwind and clear your mind body and soul,

camping in a tent may not be for some as for others its the only way to camp,

in a tent will get you back in touch with reality,

in an RV or a trailer it is too much like home and you lose the effect of true camping,

who needs electric while camping, when you have flashlights, lanterns whether battery,

or propane, then cooking is done on the camp stove and grill, or simply on a grill on the campfire,

there was once a time that there was no electric or any other amenity,

it was like camping everyday along your path of this journey through life,

we all forget the true magic of camping, cause we are stuck within this easy society,

those who lived in the time of no electric, had no clue of the word stress,

they worked hard to maintain their campsite everyday,

but to them it wasn’t work just something they had to do to survive,

plus they did it in moderation to stay in tune with themselves,

stay in tune with all that is around them including themselves,

leaving them fully in tune of who they truly were,

leaving them with their true feelings and emotions in tune,

so they can walk their path along this journey of life in peace and serenity.

 

” camping may not be for some, but for others they become more in tune with themselves and all that is around them”

” wilderness camping in a tent is the most therapeutic thing you can do, as it totally gets you back in touch with yourself and  all that is around you”

” to feel the magic of camping while enjoying the magic of the campfire, will have you be truly of who you are and while you walk your path in peace always throughout this journey”

 

The Great Outdoors……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The rocky shores of the pond, the bright and dark of the color green,

the blue skies where our vision gets drawn to, as we kick back and enjoy,

the cool water of the pond looks inviting for us to cool from the stare of the sun,

but we pass on the invite as we simply enjoy the peace with our eyes in full gleam,

to some it is the beach where many others go, for me that is not as much fun,

the great outdoors is a lot more than the sandy beach,

it is getting outside in the wilderness and exploring your own serenity,

finding that quiet sanctuary to be able to truly unwind and clear the negative thoughts,

the only thing you hear around you, would be the birds chatting and singing to each other,

you find yourself looking around to see how many different tree’s there are,

looking at all the plant life then thinking I don’t see that one back home,

maybe you see a Bear and realize it is more afraid of you than you of it,

you suddenly realize that this journey through life just got more interesting.

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life,

but yet some get stuck in neutral and never explore all there is around,

our jobs, greed, being lost within the clouds of our judgement are things that control,

when we let these things control us, we never then find that quiet sanctuary to enjoy,

we then become someone we are not and never get outside to explore,

the great outdoors is more than just going out in the back yard,

it is going out a place you have never been and exploring what is around you,

looking deeply at everything around you to understand better about this journey,

understand better of ourselves, so we can go to our sanctuary and find peace when needed,

to walk our paths of this journey stronger and better moving forward.

 

” the great outdoors is greater than we think it is, we just have to get out and explore more to truly see it’s greatness”

” don’t get sucked in to all the crap of today, step outside… explore… find true peace… so we can unwind with a smile and not a frown”

” being outdoors is stepping out of the ordinary and doing something you normally never do”

 

 

 

The Good will prevail among us….

” Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction”.

-2 Cor 1:3-4b, ESV

 

” May we always remember in our Prayers, all those affected by any tragedy throughout the World and may we all feel the comfort of Jesus from all these afflictions that comes across our paths”.

*** BowlingChef***

 

The Journey through life is like the Journey to the summit of any Mountain for which we attempt, it comes with many trials and tribulation, there are many obstacles we learn to over come, many bumps that will bruise you on the outside as well as the inside, sometimes these bumps will knock you down, but it is never on how you fall, it is always on how you pick yourself up from the fall and move forward with strength to be better. On the journey up the mountain we will see many things, only if we look deeply into what we see, it is when we just scratch the surface of this journey, that we then don’t see all the true beauty that is around us, instead we only see what we want to see and we then open ourselves up to the afflictions and tragedies, that may come to us along our path.

The Journey up the Mountain to some may seem like to hard of work, so they never venture up any mountain to experience the true beauty that is around them. As you walk the path of the mountain, is like walking the path of this journey through life, you see the light at the end of the path, which is the summit at the top of the mountain and when we reach this summit, we then get a strong feeling within us and this feeling is of the accomplishment that we just climbed, that feeling of Awe!!! We get as we reach the summit, is the same feeling that we get, as we accomplish anything that comes before us along our journey through life. This is our outer body experience, that when things become so overwhelming to us and we then become clouded within our judgments, we then lose this feeling and lose our vision along our path, we then move forward without seeing all the true beauty that is around us.

As Jesus comforts us from all the afflictions throughout this journey, we then comfort ourselves and each other, so we all can live in peace along our paths of this journey, Jesus showed us the way when he came to us and walked his journey, he also died for us to further his teachings to us, but we are so far removed from the days of Jesus coming to us, that we are now letting the clouds of our judgments get in the way, of us truly looking deeply at what we see. We forget just how beautiful everything around us is and are now consumed with all the ugliness that surrounds us, there is a light at the end of all our paths, it is just that we are not letting ourselves see the light, this light is not the light of day, it is a beacon within each of us, that Jesus lights up our paths as we strive toward the path of righteousness, we don’t see this light, we only feel this light, when we truly look deeply at all we see.

When we truly feel this light, only then will the shadow of doubt leave us, only then will we clearly feel the light within us and look deeply at what we are seeing. A big part of all these Afflictions and tragedies around us, is simply because not only do we doubt ourselves, but we also have forgotten how to forgive ourselves as well, when we Pray for Jesus to forgive us, we first have to forgive ourselves to truly be forgiven at all. The power of forgiveness, will always help us feel the light within us and will always help us look deeply into what we see. This journey through life is the same as the journey to the summit of the mountain, it will reward us with the feelings of accomplishments, when we truly look deeply at what we see along our path.

 

” The Mountains we see around us from the Valley’s, are not just there for us to see, they are there for us to feel accomplishment as we journey to the summit of each one”

” The trials and tribulations along our journey here on Earth, are the same as the ones we face on the journey up the mountain and help us look deeply into what we see”

” to truly feel the power of the mountain experience and feel Jesus within us, we first have to venture up the mountain and let ourselves look deeply into what we see that is all around us”

 

The World is changing as we speak

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The World is changing right in front of us as we speak and I am not just speaking of what we see, within this picture there is change happening as we look into the lens of our camera’s. This kind of change we have to truly look deeply in to what we see,

We can clearly see the change that is going on before us, with the division of the British from the European Union, the ugliness that ISIS has brought to our lives and all the Radicalism that has engulfed all our lives, these are just a few of the changes that we can clearly see, but unless we look deeply into what we see, we will never see all the change, which then will have us never truly seeing the right and wrong of all the situations that come before us.

We all believe in ourselves correct? Cause when we don’t believe in ourselves only opens us up, for all the crap to surround us as a victim of life itself. When we become surrounded by the crap, makes it that much harder to see clearly of anything along our path, let alone not being able to look deeply into what we see, then Temptation sets in and tempts us into becoming someone we truly are not, we also then make rash decisions within the clouds of our judgments and then forget the difference between right and wrong. We are our own worst Enemies and it multiplies when we do not look deeply into what we see.

I get that we all want to stop all the ugliness around us, so we then can live in Peace, but when we blame an inanimate object for the ugliness and not truly on where the ugliness is coming from, only shows that we all are not looking deeply into what we see, we are only blaming the inanimate object, so we can than push through our agendas, even if our agenda isn’t the true clear reason of the ugliness.

Change comes in many ways, change will affect each one of us as we walk our paths along this journey through life, but unless we look deeply into what we see, we will never see the right and true change, that we all need in order to live peacefully with great happiness. Some may come before us and preach change to us, to persuade us to vote for them, so they can get elected into an office, this kind of change is either not good, or it will never happen and is nothing but rhetoric, to persuade us in a way we usually never travel. We the people have to truly look deeply into what we see, we need to see through the transparencies and not be persuaded to a side we usually never enter, True change doesn’t just come before us for us to see, true change is a feeling deep within each of us, this feeling will have us look through the clouds of our judgments, so we then can look deeply into what we see, make the right choices with no rash decisions, so we all can walk our paths in peace, through this journey of life in happiness.

 

” Change doesn’t just appear before us, true change is a feeling deep within each of us, so we then can make the right choices”

” Change is all around and unless we look deeply into what we see, we will never feel or see the true change”

” Groups like ISIS are a form of change we made without looking deeply into what we see, the way we stop these groups is to truly feel the change and look deeply into what we see, so this ugliness will cower away like the true cowards they are”

 

Take a Bite out of Life……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

It is amazing how a little Critter that is the Beaver, can literally bite at this hard wood and fall this live tree, these Beavers work hard to gather their supplies needed, in order to build their homes. I wouldn’t want to get bitten by a Beaver, cause if they can fall this tree using only their teeth. your talking some pretty sharp and strong teeth. Beaver’s put in some long hard days, doing a lot of hard work, Wish I could say the same for some that live within Society of today.

There are some People within this Society today that are so lazy, they won’t think twice to receive Welfare while they sit on their Fannies and do nothing all day, then they think they are entitled to having others pay for them to do so? Maybe this system needs to change, but within this political Correct World we live and the ones that are within our Governments, that will think of themselves first, then maybe think of the ones that voted them into the office they hold, this system will never change as the lazy ones get lazier and the Worker’s work harder, without ever getting ahead themselves, within this unfairly balanced World we live today.

Back in the day of a time before we had all the perks we have today, a time when if you didn’t work hard, then you had no roof over your head or a table to put the daily food on, in order to eat and fill your bodies with the nutrients that you lost throughout that day. Axes came from somewhere? So you had an Individual sit down one day and made the first Ax, now you had a tool to build a house and make a table, for the daily meals you are about to eat. This individual now has an Ax so he can venture into the woods and gather much needed Timber so he can now build a house, there were no Banks back then to walk into, just a handy Ax, to walk into the woods and start gathering timber to build that roof over your head, to live safely as you walk your path along this journey throughout life.

Times were different back in that day yes, their journey along their paths may seem like to hard of a journey for us now, only because we have become so lazy, that any kind of work is too hard for us to do. This journey through Life really isn’t that hard, it is only we the People within this Society that have it  seem hard, by the way we go about living our lives and walking our paths throughout this journey of life.

Two different times, two different era’s, it is hard to compare the two together, but they both have Individuals walking a path through a journey of life. The Individuals back then worked hard to achieve all that they achieved, if they didn’t have a tool, they made a tool that would do the job they wanted to do, now we go to the store and buy a tool, which makes the task so easy, back then if they wanted to build a roof over their head, they ventured into the woods, so they can get the much needed timber to build their home, with that roof over their head, now we go into a realtor, visit a bank so we can buy a home with that roof over our heads, okay maybe the bank will deny you at first, but it is still much simpler than back in the day, when they walked into the woods to gather the necessary timber, to build that house. This journey through life is much different than back in the day, but with all the technology in front of us, has made this journey very easy, as well as made us very lazy to do any hard work, like those of yesteryear  who walked their paths along this journey of life.

 

” Back in the day was of a different era, but in no means should it ever be forgotten”

 

” Individuals back in the day worked hard for all they had, why then should some today steal from them to say they worked for what they had if you never really worked”

 

” You get out of life what you put into it, if you sit on your Fannies looking for a hand out, then you will never really receive anything in life”

 

 

Busy as a Beaver……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

These little critters known to us as the Beaver, are very hard workers and are always in search of product to bring back to their homes. They are very smart in the way they build their home, as to us it is known as the Beaver dam, this Dam is very strong and once built is very hard to break down.

True these Beaver’s can be a pesky little Critter, as they don’t care where they build as long as they build and claim their territory. With these Beaver Dams comes a lot of dried up creek beds, with less water flowing along its path, as the water dry’s up on one side, now you have a lot of water on the other side and as it sits still, now floods over its banks, destroying the land that was once along the banks of the creek. Now that the creek is dried up on one side, the creek can’t continue to flow along its path, which starves all the plant life that was along its bank and as they starve, they become weak and fall to their death, making that area to us that was once vibrant, not so vibrant and beautiful.

These Beaver’s is a very busy Critters and not afraid to work hard at all, they can fall a tree with their razor sharp teeth, which is amazing knowing of their size, but these Beaver’s are kind of like we throughout this Society, as they don’t think of what will happen down the road, as they continue to build their Dams. The only difference between the Beaver and us is, we are driven by Greed and the greed that comes from our buildings, causes us to not think smartly, as we build anywhere, just to receive the money that comes from the sale of these buildings. We all have a brain, even the Beaver has a brain, but we then do not use our brains correctly as we forget to think about what will happen down the road, when we take action to build where we build.

The power of Greed is so strong, it will have us do things we normally would never do, greed will also give us false temporary feeling of power, as we think? We can do whatever we want, when we want to do it. With Greed we don’t think about who or what we hurt, which forces us to go against who we are, which makes this Society cold and unforgiving. When we use our brains properly, we then think better and care deeply of what will happen to all that is around, where we want to build. So yes we are all guilty to the way Society has become, simply with the way of our thinking and letting Greed affect us in the way that it does. Greed is a very powerful thing and will consume every fiber of our being when we let it, it is also a very strong force which will make it very hard to stay out of its way, when we get on board with Greed, we then become someone we truly are not and care not for who we hurt, as we will do anything to get even Greedier and all the self proclaimed power that we think we have. When we get consumed by Greed and build wherever we want to build, we then become like the Beaver and work hard at building every where we want to build, we then don’t use our brains properly and refuse to think down the road, at whatever or who we hurt just to become more Greedier, Then we ” think” we have all this self proclaimed power over everything even our fellow Man, it is very easy to get caught up within this Greedy Society, but when we think properly using our brains properly, then we all throughout Society, can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness with each other, as everything we look at, will be beautiful every time we look.

 

” The Beaver is a very hard worker, that really doesn’t think properly with its brain, to all it hurts as it builds its Dam blocking the creek from flowing along it’s path”

” Greed and all the self proclaimed power it brings, will have us always become someone we truly are not”

” The Beaver builds its dams quietly with its teeth, we build very loudly further hurting all that is around us”
