The Dawn of a new day……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

With each Dawn comes a whole new day, for each of us to walk further along this journey of life, as you awaken and take to the outside, you see the moon disappearing on one Horizon and the Sun rising on the other. There is something special about this time of day, maybe the tranquility, or the peace, or maybe just the calmness of all that is around you. To go camping and wake up to this, as you walk the rocky shore with a cup of coffee, it makes you realize there is a lot more to life, than just your average daily life for which  you walk now.

Dawn has a special kind of beauty and you have to be outdoors, to truly see the splendor and the beauty of the Dawn. The different colors within the sky with the clouds dividing the colors on the Artist’s canvass of life, the silence is the serenity of the morning Dawn, it is the best time of day to clear your mind of all the negative thoughts, which clearly has you relaxed as your mind becomes clear of all the negativity. A walk along the rocky shore at this time of day, calms you from the stress of everyday life, it will change you for the better, so when you get back to your normal life, your not so up tight and jumpy at every turn.

The Dawn of a new day gets you thinking of, today, tomorrow and yesterday. Now Tomorrow will never come as when it arrives it then becomes today,  with today is merely being in the present and living in the now, then as we see yesterday, it is gone and can never be brought back, which makes yesterday our past to learn from, then move forward better and stronger, so never put off today til tomorrow, as with yesterday you will have many regrets, that you will never get back. Now let’s not forget the future, this is where you pre plan what you want to do, then get through all the today’s and tomorrow’s, to see where the future actually brings you.

The perfect Dawn morning is so picturesque, as you gaze out into the horizon and it will hypnotize you, as you get lost within the thoughts of your mind.  Now as we think of waking to each new day, we tend to take for granted what the new day truly brings, all we do is wake and hit the snooze bar, dreading to go to our nine to five yet another day. We take so much for granted as we walk our paths through this journey of life and to not look deeply into the Dawn of the new day, we are totally missing out on a big piece of who we truly are.

 

” Each Dawn is a different day as we wake all bright eyed and bushy tailed”

” Tranquility is a part of the new Dawn that brings peace and serenity to us with calmness”

” Look deeply into the morning horizon as you truly see the beauty the Dawn holds”

” Tomorrow never comes and yesterday becomes the past, so live in the present which is today and look forward to the future”

Camping a time to relax and unwind….

Camping season is right around the corner, a time to get outside, be one with nature and enjoy the beauty that Mother Earth holds, plus enjoy some relax time with no worries for the time off day. True camping is within a tent, as that other camping that you have the comforts of home on wheels, is just simply parking as your not really deep within the woods and your within a camping park with much recreation to do, I would rather create my own recreation, at my own leisure.

Nature walks, breathing the fresh crisp air, sitting by the campfire and just being one with your surroundings, now that’s what camping is all about. Then as you look deeply around you and see all the wild animals around you, like a deer, a moose, or maybe a bear and seeing them up close while they walk their daily journey, or maybe the awesome Eagle flying by? This is true camping and gets us away from the chaos of Society for a short while. True you have to be aware of all the animals around you, but with common sense and respecting them, you will find they welcome you to join them in their environment. Some may never go camping within a tent as it may not be their cup of tea, but they will invest in one of those camping RV’s, that’s fine…… but they are not truly camping deep within the woods, where the true relaxation is either.

While camping deep within the woods always remember you are not alone, there are other creatures around you, which makes it that much more important that, when you pack up to go home, you leave your area cleaner than when you got there. Always respect the land as well as the other creatures around you, never leave your fire pit with smoldering coals and always make sure the coals are distinguished, so that the Forest will always be there when you want to camp, deep within the woods of the Forest, never leave your trash behind as you wouldn’t want the tenants of the woods to leave a mess in your backyard, I am sure those tenants of the woods will come sniffing for food after your departure, but never leave them anything, so they won’t expect anything when you return, as this could get ugly if they tend to expect something and never get it while you are there. Common sense is the key to having a fun, exciting and enjoyable camping adventure.

Setting a tent on the carpet of the green grass may be comforting, I remember living out in Colorado and camping at 13,000 feet and setting a tent on the snow pack on the mountain, that was different and definitely a little colder on the body, but with the right tarp under the tent and the right mat laid out inside the tent, to lay your sleeping bag upon, makes for a different kind of comfort, as you sleep within the tent at night, then digging a hole in the snow, so you can make a camp fire to cook and get the chill off, now that was an experience to remember and learn from, as I learned how to make a fire in a very different atmosphere. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all have our ways and our own likes, this is what makes us unique to each other, but when you experience true Wilderness camping, now you can say that this journey has many paths and many ways for each of us to enjoy ourselves everyday, as well as many ways for us to relax and be at peace, with great happiness always.

 

” Camping is not just parking on wheels with the comforts of home”

” Camping within a tent deep within the woods is so relaxing”

” ” Being one with nature is so soothing to the mind, body and soul”

” ” Mother nature and all the creatures within it can get along, when we respect ourselves as well as all that is around us”

The Journey of Addiction

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Addiction is the Evil that will bring us down from within, we have to better understand it so we can turn a negative into a positive”

 

The power of Addiction is strong, it will control every fiber of your body, it will have you become someone of which you truly are not, it will have you do things that you normally would never do, Addiction is killing this Society one Individual at a time.

Addiction is many things and is not just limited to drugs and alcohol, being a Workaholic is a form of an Addiction, anything that gets you away from truly being who you are is a form of an Addiction, especially when you develop a taste for something, then crave that taste further, then as you are now within the claws of the Addiction, it becomes very hard to release the grip of the claws, you can escape the grip, but it will take a lot of hard work, to which most Addicts have already given up and are too lazy for any kind of fight or work.

The evil side of the Addiction is the most brutal and the darkest side, every day is a struggle, every day you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel simply because, the grip within the claws has you so wrapped up, that all the light is blocked and you can’t see anything but keeping the Addiction going. Envision yourself as being mauled by a Grizzly Bear and the Bear has you in his clutches so tight, all the wind is being squeezed out of you, at first thought you think this is the end I have no chance, but if you only give yourself a chance, fight with every last fight you have, you can escape the clutches of the Bear and get away, Addiction is the same and with every last fight, you can also escape the clutches of the Addiction, now this don’t mean you are done with the Bear or the Addiction, you still have to keep fighting every day, so the claws will never catch you within it’s grip again.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we are all acceptable to any and all kinds of Addictions, the difference to some not getting into an Addiction is, being a product of your environment growing up, letting the life events control who you are and become, When you become a product of your environment as you grow up, now your not letting your inner child grow as it should and become healthy and happy as you should be on the out side. We all have this inner child within us, from the day we are born, til the day we die, just like we on the outside have to grow up into a Society of many, this inner child grows within us and when we don’t let this child grow properly, this is when we become accessible to all kinds of other issues especially Addiction.

This inner child is our lifeline, it is how we grow to be happy and at peace, this inner child is deep within our souls and when it grows normally, it will fill your whole body and your heart with a warmth, this warmth is the love of God within us and without it, we then become cold to all that is around us, we feel nothing and have no emotion of anything that comes before us along our path, which we then get picked up by the claws of Addiction, we become easy pray for all kinds of evil that wants to brainwash us into their evil ways, like those that become a Terrorist, these Individuals are so cold and have been so brainwashed, that to them their inner child does not exist and the thought of any love or empathy coming from them………… Let’s just say it does not exist. We are all Humans that walk a path through this journey of life, we are all a product of our environment as we grow into Society, our true growth depends on just how we let this inner child grow within us? If we ignore this child, then we will not grow properly like our inner child and become susceptible to anything that comes before us, whether it is good or it is evil. There is no text book to this journey, but God leaves it up to us to find a way and if we trust in him, have faith in him, then there is always the hope that we will follow in his footsteps, just as his son Jesus did when he came and walked his journey with us, Jesus also was tempted by the dark side, but he stayed true to who he was, kept the faith in his Father and he then never lost hope as he always felt the warmth of his love, then shared it with all that was around him.

It is much easier to feel the warmth of God’s love within us and share it with each other, than it is to get consumed by the dark side and the clutches of Addiction, but when we acknowledge this inner child within us, nurture and take care of it, we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, peacefully and within happiness throughout our existence.

 

” There are many forms of evil that will try to control who we are, it is the warmth of God’s love within us that keeps us from the clutches of the evil”

” We all have an inner child within us, it is important to never neglect this child for it’s proper growth”

” When our inner child grows properly, we to grow properly to be of who we truly are”

” Faith, love and hope are what we truly are, without them we become lost on our paths no matter what path we take”

 

The Patriot way of doing your job

gillette

The New England Patriots are a football Franchise, that play a game of football, which besides the physical nature of the game, it is simply just a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game. The strategy part of football is similar to the board game of Chess, the object to football is reaching the end zone of the opponent and in Chess reaching the other end of the board, conquering the opponents King, There are a series of moves or plays that happen in between, which makes it quite simple, each player or Chess piece has a job to do and when each do their jobs, that is the team that reigns supreme on that day,

The New England Patriots have been good for so long, because they have a coach that understands the game as good or better then most within the game today, in chess you would call him a Wizard. he not only understands the game, he also knows how to motivate each player, knows when they are on the up swing or down swing of their careers and he flat out will out coach any coach in the game.

Now you have this guy named Tom Brady, which by the way is the best Quarterback in the game. Tom didn’t get this way by chance, he with his great work ethnic, made himself the best he can be, he practices and studies film as much as anybody in the game. Tom has also become a great leader of his Teammates showing by example, not too mention he is one of the most competitive guys in the NFL and he definitely likes to win more than he does losing.

Now it takes a lot more than a great coach or players to become successful in the NFL, you also need a great Owner that wants his investment to reap big rewards, there is no better Owner of all sports better than Bob Kraft. The best day in the history of the New England Patriots was the day Bob bought the team. Bob Kraft is a great business man and he did what any business man would of done, surrounded himself with the best of the best football minds he knew. He started with Coach Parcels which had brought them to a Superbowl, they lost that one, then they went out and signed Bill Belichek, which they never looked back and the rest is history.

I have been through the years that the Patriots would only win one game a year, but now these Patriots are rewriting all the record books and from a fan of long standing, what a ride it has been, True there has been some changes through the glory years, with some of the coaching staff and players, but the two common denominators have been, Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, these two guys have become the best Coach\Quarterback tandem in the history of the NFL and we here in New England are witnessing it first hand. Yes your going to have your Hecklers and Hater’s, the Yankee’s and the Canadians went through it in their hey day, simply because others were jealous of their winning all the time, this is what being successful brings unfortunately, The team of the New England Patriots are a Franchise that when you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see that, they were not that successful, but with hard work, some of the right changes, they now have become a successful Franchise, that we all can look up to and strive to become.

The path that the New England Patriots took is nothing different than the path we all take through this journey of life, it only differs from the amount of hard dedicated work you put in along the path, the harder you work, the easier it becomes and the more you practice the work, the better you become along your path of this journey. Nothing is easy and nothing just comes to you without practice, if we only just follow the Patriot way, just maybe we all can achieve the same success that they have received over their glory years. In many ways sports and life are different, but in many other ways, its the sports that help us, become better and stronger as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The New England Patriot way of ” Do your job” can also be our way through this journey of life:

” With hard work and practice we all can achieve success at anything we do”

” Chess is a game of strategy, just like football with the best strategy winning on that day”

” Practice is how we become better and stronger so we can walk our paths easier making our lives even better”

 

The Crown of Jesus Christ

” You have heard that it was said to your Ancestor’s, you shall not kill and who ever kills will be liable to judgement, but I say to you, who ever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgement”.

*** Mt: 5:21-22a***

 

This picture was taken last summer, up in the woods of Maine, on a camping adventure of peace and serenity. I was out in the kayak one day paddling along the lake and seeing all of natures beauty and for a bonus, watching the Bald Eagles fly over head. I was loving this day and even though I was working the paddles through the water, this in no way seemed like work, simply because i was enjoying all the peace and serenity all around me. Then as I came around this one Inlet, these roots were front and center and as I got closer, I could clearly see what they truly resembled, they resemble the Crown of Jesus Christ sticking out of the water. These are the signs that God sends us, so we can receive his message and never lose sight that he is always with us, no matter who you are and no matter what life struggles you are going through.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have also herd the saying ” an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”? Maybe not such an extreme, but yes we all should be held accountable for our actions and held totally liable to the judgments of those actions. Within this Society and because of the Political Correction, we don’t hold anybody for their actions, as we are so afraid to offend anybody, which then leaves us with a Society in such disarray, that none of us accept the judgments of our actions, instead we point the finger to others, blaming them for what we should be accepting ourselves. What this type of practice does most is, create more anger of each other, instead of spreading the love of God, that is within our hearts and souls, spreading our love is so easy, as the anger and hate we so chose to spread, takes much more work on all our parts.

The being angry towards one another has us all forgetting just how to truly forgive one another, it has us all being not truly of who we are, it then replaces a big part of ourselves with, someone that we ourselves do not even know? When Jesus came to us and walked his journey with us, he taught us many things, he showed us how to truly love ourselves as well as each other, he also showed us that anger and betrayal will bring us to our knees with much pain, to which he himself because of the anger and betrayal, died on the cross for each of us, then three days later…….. showed us all that, when we truly change our ways, when we truly feel his love within us, we can learn to forgive ourselves as well as each other, so we all at the day of judgement, can truly be of who we are, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all can be at peace, while we are all living in happiness throughout the journey.

 

” Life’s journey doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems, it is only we ourselves that make it as hard as it seems”

” Anger and Betrayal are what brings us to our knee’s with much pain, with Love there is no pain only peace and happiness”

” The signs from God are all around us, we just have to truly look deeply into what we see, so we can truly see all of the signs”

” When the signs of God are in front of us, change is how we accept his message, so we can truly forgive and see all the beauty around us”

 

A Nation of Immigrants

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” We all want a better life and sometimes we go to other areas to find the better life, but when we come from a different country, we first need to go through proper channels and do it correctly, without over staying our welcome”

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all want to better and stronger as we walk our paths, but when we take advantage of one another, or we hurt one another in any way shape or form, now your doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing. I get that some in other Countries are struggling and want a better way for their families, but when you relocate to a whole different place and don’t follow their laws, or want the ones in that new place to give you everything without you working for it, now you are doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing, or go back to where you came from.

America was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way. When their is the word of ” Illegal” before the word of Immigration, now you are doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing. I am getting sick and tired of listening to the left or the Democrats, calling out Trump on his Immigration reform that it is an attack on all Immigrants? It is not an attack on all, only those Immigrants with the word ” Illegal” before it, simply because you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing, or go back to where you came from. Most of these ” Illegals” are Criminals and are doing great harm to all those around us, not too mention the sponging off of all of us, by taking our hard earned money every day and the Democrats are letting them do it, simply because they vote for them with the fake credentials they are given.

Then there is the left bias Media, that only print what they want to print, irregardless of whether it is actual truth or not? They take the words of ” Illegal” Immigration, drop the word in quotes and make it sound like the Immigration policy of Trump is against all Immigrants? I am calling out all forms of Media, no matter what platform you use and actually do your job, of printing the 100% truth of everything, without distorting, twisting, or leaving out of any words that only fit what ever agenda you want to achieve. All the Media is doing is creating way to much Drama, in this already Drama ridden Society we are living, just so they can make all the money and come across as more powerful than the rest of us. I think we the People already proved just how powerful we are, with the results of this past Election, as all the Media was left scratching their heads. Plus a lot of information the media reports on and a lot of the quotes the Democrats quote to us, come from Parody accounts that are on Twitter and to those of us with Common sense, we all know what a Parody account is? Correct it is another way of saying a fake account, that some create hiding who they really are, so they can get away with using words to hurt their fellow man. We all walk a path through this journey of life, time we all get back on the same page like the years of our beginning, so we all can move forward better and stronger, while living peacefully and in happiness.

 

” A Parody is fake and is only created to create more drama, while hiding solely who they truly are”

” When you hide of who you truly are, only means that you are ashamed of who you are and have some issues that you yourself need to fix”

” Immigrants are on a journey for a better life from where they currently are, most will do it correctly, but a small percentage won’t think twice at taking advantage of their fellow man”

” If you can’t do a job with confidence and on your own merits, then you really shouldn’t be doing the job you are in, especially when you are in a position that hurts those around you”

 

We are all Patriots……

gillette

” True Patriots unite as one, there is no hatred to be found no matter who you are, or where you are from”.

 

Patriots may be a football team that play at this stadium known as Gillette, but we are all Patriots who walk a path, through this journey of life. I can remember a time when this same football team of the Patriots were only winning one or two games a year, man!!! What a different team they are now. True there is way too much hatred of this team, simply because they do nothing but win for the last fifteen years, it is pretty much a Dynasty that has been built by Robert Kraft the Owner, with the bringing in of Bill Belichek, so why can’t we just sit back and enjoy the ride? without bringing the unnecessary drama.

This team from year to year has had many different components, but the two common denominators have been Bill Belichek and Tom Brady. These two have pretty much re-written all the records and show no signs of slowing down, or calling it quits. So from someone who has struggled from year to year while saying, ” wait til next year” every year, it feels good to be proud of the team once again, as they truly are a great football team.

With all the success of the Patriots over the last fifteen years, you will have the Hater’s hating on this team simply because their team can’t beat the Patriots and the fans want the same success as the Patriot fans. The New York Yankees and the Montreal Canadians went through the same as the Patriots are going through now, only because they win more than they lose, what I say to all the Hater’s out there is, if you want to be a Champion, then step up to the plate and beat a Champion. Now not everybody can be a Champion, because as one team wins, there has to be another team that loses, this is fact and a fact we all have to better at excepting, so we can move forward better and stronger.

When Robert Kraft bought this team the New England Patriots,  this was the beginning of positive change not just to a football team, but to the Community that hosts this team. The Patriots are so good on so many levels, it would take all day to write about them all, but if those who hate on this team, would only set aside their hate and truly look at the team the Patriots, they could clearly see why they have become a great team and do what they need, so they to can accomplish the same success. There is way too much Hate within this Society and it goes a lot deeper than any sports team and their success, but if we can watch our favorite team, to cheer them on as they strive for success, then just maybe we can all unite and become one on the same team, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life, to become better and stronger with every step, then we all can share what it is like to be on the winning team throughout life.

 

” Winning should never be hated on, as it takes a lot of hard work and dedication”

” Hard work and plenty of practice are the key ingredients to anything you want to win at”

” We all want success but refuse the hard work and practice part, then we hate the ones that achieve the success with much hard work and practice”

” Don’t hate on a team just because they keep on winning, simply step up to the plate and beat the Champion to achieve the same success”
