True Communication/ knowing the red flags

 

We within this Society and with all the ugliness around us today, we have totally lost the simple task of, looking each other in the eyes and truly communicating, using our mouths as they were supposed to be used. We would rather argue and bicker at one another, than to have an intelligent conversation, then stab each other in the back with our words to others. Maybe within this Political Correct Society, we have taken some major steps backwards, instead of moving forward through this journey of life.

The Whale swims deep throughout the oceans, while they to travel their journeys and as they swim through the water, they communicate to other Whales they pass along their journey and I bet they communicate better then we the people as well. We the people have become so consumed with the invention of technology, that we have totally forgotten of just how to live and walk our paths without it. There is no face to face time anymore as, we sit behind our computers and phones. then do nothing but text and email. Then there are the video games…………. Okay I can see the few benefits they may bring, but I totally see all the negatives as well and the negatives out weigh the benefits.

with these video games it is all about creating the best graphics, so the viewers or the players, can seem to be a part of the game, or as close to reality as they can be. The problem there is, they have become so life like, that the players then think, they can treat their realities they same way, they think it is okay and accepted for them to act as stupid as the Fictitious Characters they play? Then you add to the equation the Mentally Deranged Individuals now playing these games and thinking it is a treatment for them? But instead they go out to the rest of us and act out for real, a part of the game that they have played. This is just the tip of all the ugliness out there and it all starts and ends with we the people of this Society, who walk a path through this journey of life.

I can remember growing up, we had these Hospitals known as Mental Institutions, but because our so called Leaders in our State and Federal Governments and the fact they think they are smarter than all of us, when they want to make cuts this was the first place they went, then without the proper budgets in place to fund these places, they then close leaving the live in Residents, to walk the streets with the rest of us. Now these Residents may not have a Criminal record, but they have something else known as red flags, these red flags waive high above their heads, when their actions are not normal actions. When these Individuals where Residents in the Mental Institutes, it was so they could get the proper Medications needed, as to keep the red flags from waiving as strong as they are now. Now don’t get me wrong, we all so deserve the right to walk freely on our paths of this journey, just that some have developed this chemical imbalance within their brains, that needs constant care and medications, to keep them from becoming a very dangerous person. Now with the closing of the Mental Institutions and all the Residents walking the streets with the rest of us, you really think these Individuals are still taking their medications on their own? You guessed it, they may take from time to time, but not enough to keep in control of their actions from the imbalance, then as the red flags keep waiving stronger and we keep turning the other cheek away from them, then as they reach a boiling point, now we all pay the price, as we see from all the ugliness around us, plus this could of all been addressed, if we only took care of proper managing our own actions or non actions, as we move forward from one Society to another.

Most would want to blame the Guns from these tragic events? But lets really think for a minute……………. If ” Someone” doesn’t pull the trigger of a gun, you think the gun is going to fire? Now if you can’t answer this question correctly, then maybe you should take some medication to keep the red flag from waiving. The problem of all the ugliness is not the guns and has everything to do with we the people of this Society. We need to start calling a spade a spade, we need to be more accountable for our actions and we need to, start being more responsible as we end this Political Correct Society for which we live. Maybe it would be a good idea to reopen some of these Institutions and stop refusing these Individuals treatment and to take it one step further, I think it would be huge if we all stand up to the Insurance companies, instead of them dictating where our money goes and yes we do pay into them, so how do they get to call the shots on our well being? You want ” Real Change”, this is what needs to change, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, within  peace and happiness, instead of within the ugliness around us right now.

 

” Red flags are different then the flag of a nation, they determine the actions we are about to take”

” True communication is we the people interacting face to face and not hiding behind the technology we all have”

” Our mouths are used for real communication, not our fingers texting on our technology”

” Just like an Actor acts a fictitious part in a movie, the figure that we play in these video games is also a fictitious character”

” This ugliness is not so much of the gun, as it is more about we the people and our actions”

 

 

 

 

 

Have the Faith to Renew without Denial

See the source image

 

” Lent is a fitting time for self Denial, we would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty, let us not forget that real poverty hurts: No self denial is real without this dimension of Penance”.

*** Pope Francis***

 

Pope Francis is simply trying to pull us all together, so we than can move forward within the peace of God, without the ugliness of this Society. We will never be renewed on this journey of Lent, if at first we don’t have the complete Faith, of not just ourselves but within Jesus Christ as well.

We all in this Society are in total Denial, as we can’t even take responsibility for either our actions, nor our inaction’s.  We walk our paths as if we are better then all those around us, we think we are always right even when we are wrong? God didn’t teach us the error of our ways, nor did his son Jesus Christ, when he came and walked this journey with us. We have become so consumed with all the drama and the ugliness, that we have totally forgotten of  “just how to walk within the shadow of our path  in the light of this journey through life.

There is so much negativity all around us, that we have to scramble in order to find anything positive anymore. With all the technology everywhere around us, especially as we sit and become consumed with the game within the computer, not only have we let these computer games control us, but we have let them become addicted, to  the addictive personality within us. The other part of this technology and all the social media platforms out there are, we now can hide behind our computer screens, with zero interaction of each other anymore. Without the daily interactions then our people skills we can not practice, which we then will have us become negative, sarcastic and hurtful towards one another. Gone are the days of, the children coming home from school, going home to change, so we can meet up with the other neighborhood children and putting together a pick up game of whatever sport we choose on that day? These are the days that made us into who we become and helped us learn the art of social interactions, so we than can come together in total unity, to conquer all our fears with confidence and gusto.

Lent is a perfect time for us all to reflect, renew, sacrifice as Jesus did on his journey, so we can come together in unity, come together as one, so we than can help each other, instead of attack one another, with the full cooperation of each other, as we put down the technology and actually interact with each other. Technology yes is good and can help us moving forward, but when we become engulfed in it and lose total interaction with each other, now we have entered into the dark side of the technology, with all of us paying the price from our inaction’s and inability to come together and show our true feelings, of empathy and love that is deep within  our hearts and souls.

We all hurt in our own way, with the pain from the hurt affecting us all very differently, we all have our issues as well, with some being greater than others, you just never know of how deeply someone hurts real pain deep within? This is why we are all in the dark side of the technology, as we hide behind the technology and never actually see of who we are hurting, or who is hurting anywhere, the real pain of the poverty. Because we hide behind the technology, we don’t allow ourselves to truly feel any feelings, when we do go out our people skills do not come with us, as we do not even give each other the time of day, which makes it very easy for us to becomes so engulfed in all the ugliness of today. Empathy…………Huh! it doesn’t even exist, simply because we are so consumed with ourselves, Empathy and love are both within our hearts and souls and that warmth you feel in your heart, that is Jesus talking to us, but in this Society we simply ignore him, like he doesn’t even exist.

Jesus sacrificed for us, so why can’t we sacrifice for him and maybe get out from the technology from time to time, like during the forty day journey of lent, then we can actually see each other and just maybe interact with each other. Then through that interaction, just maybe we can get back in touch with our true feelings deep within our hearts and souls, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness, with the true love that Jesus showed us, while leading us to the path of righteousness.

 

” Through true interactions of each other, there will never be objectification as we view each other as a person within this journey”

” Denial we may not realize now, is the suppression of our true selves deep within ourselves”

” The journey within the journey as we walk for forty days through Lent just as Jesus did from ash Wednesday to Easter”

” Instead of hiding behind the technology and the social platforms, go out and actually be social and learn to interact with those around you”

” Some may hurt real pain with some being brought on by another, but to suppress the real feelings will only amplify the pain, instead of helping to relieve the pain”

We of this Society have witnessed way too much ugliness, even more than Societies of the past, true other Societies have seen some ugliness, but the ugliness around us today, has pretty much taken on a life of it’s own. I mean seriously………….. All the mass shootings, the Terrorists wanting nothing more than to end all those who don’t share their warped and twisted so called lifestyles, then there are the children of the inner cities getting a hold of guns and turning them on anyone, just because they think it would be cool? You have the Parent’s of these children going around like their children are Angels and all other children are wrong? You send your children to school everyday so they can become smarter and live a life better than yourself, but instead the schools are a mess, between the Bully’s and the deranged ones wanting to hurt others around them, not only where are the Parents when their children need them most, but where are the Teachers, who not only are supposed to teach our children, but it is also their responsibility to keep the children’s safe from all harm and most importantly, the Parents actually trust these Individuals to keep their children safe, during their duration of the school day.

Natural disasters like Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes etc….. These are going to happen and worry us greatly, but having to worry about all the other ugliness around us today, no wonder why we are a broken Society today.   Most of all the ugliness around us today is the responsibility of we the People of this Society and we are not doing a good enough job in eliminating this ugliness. We vote for these so called leaders to lead us in this Society, so we can all be better and stronger moving forward, but instead these so called leaders say what we want to hear, then stab us in the back when they get voted in and proceed to do what they want to only benefit themselves. They make these Bills that turn into law only to help a certain few and the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves and struggle greatly, work hard, while some get everything handed to them on a silver platter? You want real equality……….. It has nothing to do with how much money you have, or what color you are, or even what sex you are, we are all Humans on this Earth, walking a path through this journey of life and we all need to smell the sweet smell of reality, instead of simply dreaming and sponging off of others.

These so called ” Dreamers” who walk into a country and think they can sponge off the people of that country, need to seriously get a life and try working as the rest of us do everyday. Your dreams will never come true if at first, you don’t put in the work and simply help yourself achieve your dreams. Let’s take the American Dream for instance, you think you can just lay there and ” Poof”, your dreams are there in front of you when you awaken? I got a news flash for you…………. it don’t happen that way, you first have to work hard, so then your dreams can become reality. In this Society for some reason, we have become afraid of working hard and even the thought of work, not only scares the hell out of some, but it sickens them to the point they can’t even get out of bed to work. The video game craze has made us become anti social, as we sit in front of a computer, instead of going out and becoming social with those around us, because of this we have become very scared of face to face interactions with anybody, but put us in front of a PC and suddenly we now become very active with our voice and in most cases, we say the wrong things cause there is no true interaction going on at all.

There is a simple solution to all this ugliness, but first we as a Society have to come together in unity, then the solution will be right there in front of us, especially when we not only have complete faith in Jesus Christ, but we also have complete faith in ourselves. With the complete faith in Jesus and ourselves, then there is always hope for a bright future, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Also when we dig down deep within our hearts and souls, then we can truly feel the love and empathy within us, which will then aid all of us moving forward, as we then battle all the ugliness and defeat it, once and for all. The ugliness is only a product of just how divided we have become, leading us into this broken Society, if we only felt deeply of the love and empathy within us, then all the ugliness will disappear from all our paths through this journey of life, so we all can be at peace and happiness, while we all work hard at making our dreams become our reality.

 

” A dream is something we make up while we sleep and is greatly different from what reality truly is”

” Sometimes a dream can become a reality, but first you need to work hard to make it that reality”

” Some may try to steer us in the direction that we feel uncomfortable, which is why we need complete faith in Jesus and ourselves to overcome and go in our own direction”

” We are all equal to each other as Humans walking a path no matter of who you are, which is why we should never let money, color or sex determine our equality”

February 14, 2018…………. A day for each of us to truly look and feel deeply within ourselves, as first beyond anything, this being Ash Wednesday,  where we go before the Alter of God and receive the Ashes put onto our forehead, by the Priest, in the way of the cross. Then there is What we call Valentine’s day, a day full of the color red, as the roses and the chocolates get passed between us, both the Lenten journey and Valentines are special and unique to each other, just as we are special and unique to each other as well, the common denominator between the two is, Love.

With Valentines there is Love in the air, with the beginning of Lent there is Love deep within our souls, that totally and truly needs to come out and be shared. Now within this Society we don’t think about the Lenten journey being the journey within the journey, as a matter of fact if you asked one hundred people, they would say today is Valentines day, without even giving the Ashes of the Lenten journey a thought. Valentines day has become way too commercialized just like Christmas, as all the television commercials and the stores want us to believe, with the Ashes of the Lenten journey not even given a thought, or worse not even giving the respect and dignity it so deserves.

In some cases………. definitely not all, the love on Valentines day is superficial and fake, while the love within the Ashes of the Lenten journey is, within us all deep in our hearts and souls, the love of the Lenten journey is real, all we need to do is, open our hearts to Jesus Christ, so we than can truly feel his love for us and then share this love with each other.

When we completely open our hearts to Jesus Christ, there then comes an explosion of feelings to us, now we may not be used to this and try to set these feelings aside? But these feelings are real and they will never go away, no matter how deeply we try to suppress them, no matter how much we try not to acknowledge them and when we don’t acknowledge or suppress these feelings, will only have us become someone we truly are not, as you can see by all the crap we see around us today.

If we only put the Ashes of the Lenten journey first and the day of Valentines second, then just maybe we could celebrate Valentines a little different, as instead of the arrow from Cupid giving us this superficial love, we than can rip open our hearts to Jesus and truly feel the love he gives us within our hearts and souls, so we then can share this love with each other, for each of us to help make this World a better place for us all.

The Ashes of the Lenten journey and the the day of Valentines are two totally different Worlds, but if we truly bring them together, more importantly bring the love of the two together, just maybe each one of us can get back to, truly feeling the love of Jesus Christ deep within our hearts and souls. The love of Jesus Christ to us all is as deep as it gets, Jesus will never look away at anybody and love us all just as equal from one to another, unlike we the people of this society to one another. When we rip open our hearts to Jesus, totally feel the warmth of his love deep within us, then there will never be anything superficial that will come between us, so we than can come together in unity and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the Peace and happiness that we all so deserve.

 

” The 40 day journey of Lent, is the journey within the journey, to the true peace and happiness of the path of righteousness”

” Jesus showed us how to walk this 40 day journey, now is the time we show him we were listening and watching”

” The deeper you reach within your heart and soul, the warmer you find the love of Jesus and the more you want to share with those around you”

” Valentines we celebrate one day a year, but the love from the Ashes of the Lenten journey, we should celebrate everyday throughout this journey of life”

 

 

Stop/ Reflect/ Take time/ Move forward

” A Leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, ” if you wish you can make me clean”, moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, ” I do will it, be made clean” “.

MK 1: 40-41

 

With yet another season of Lent upon us, please Jesus give us all Christians the strength, to stand up, come together in unity, so we all can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so long for. We within this fast paced Society, a pace so fast we drive ourselves crazy just to try to keep up, a pace so fast that everything passes us by, before we even get a chance to stop and really look deeply at what just passed us, a pace so fast that if you blink, you then just missed something of importance, which you than can never get it back.

The season of Lent is a time for all Christians to take inventory of their journey til now and simply cleanse themselves of the crap, so they can move forward better and stronger, along their path of this journey. Jesus walked his journey here with us, he walked the forty day journey which is Lent, he was tempted by many things, as he showed us, when you stay true to who you are, there is no temptation strong enough that will take control, or force us into becoming someone we truly are not. The season of Lent is a season of change and when we change for the better, then all our journey’s will be better moving forward, Through the fasting or the change, there are things required like eating fish on Friday etc……. Within this Society some may look at this change as too drastic, but if you follow the steps of Jesus Christ, you will find this forty day journey a lot easier than you think.

The forty day journey to some may be intimidating, it may also be frowned upon as most don’t truly understand of the journey, but the forty day journey through reality, will not only help you become better moving forward, it will also cleanse your body, mind and soul, to eliminate all the crap and replace it with all the good, that will have you feel deeply your true feelings, get back in touch with the love and empathy that is deep within us all, so we than can share it with each other and make the whole World a better place for us all to walk our paths through this journey of life.

When the Leper came to Jesus, he found out no matter of who you are, there is no one that he will not help. You just have to not only have faith in yourself, you also have to have complete faith in Jesus Christ as well, with this faith you will then be granted the hope of not just a better you, but the hope for a better journey as well. This forty day journey is us sacrificing part of ourselves now, so we can truly find of who we are and move forward along this journey better and stronger then we have ever been, True the forty day journey of Lent is the fasting for Christians, but in no way does Jesus discriminate this journey for whoever wants to walk it, his arms are open wide to all, who may be of interest to walk it, as we all should learn truly from Jesus, so we than can walk this journey of life, just like we walk the forty day journey, so all of us, can find the true peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

 

” Stop, reflect, take time, move forward, take stock in your life, to be better and stronger throughout this journey”

” The Leper who some may simply turn the other cheek to, but Jesus stopped to help him be better and stronger”

” The season of Lent may be the fasting for Christians, but it is a season open to all, for the proper change throughout the journey of life”

” Never be intimidated, never frown upon anything, always stay true to who you are and always have complete faith, keeping the hope within your grasp”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A true Journalist need not Fabricate…….

See the source image

 

This is the face of ” Fake news”. Ron Borges has been suspended for a story he fabricated, of New England Patriots Quarter back Tom Brady, he basically says that Brady is going to hold out on the Patriots for more money, after his under study Jimmy Garappolo gets paid a big contract with his new team? He also says Tom is jealous…………. I got news for you Mr. Borges, Brady is doing just fine and playing a game for which he loves.  Borges is not alone, as there are many more like him out there, just that they are smarter with it and haven’t been outed yet?

A true Writer needs not to fabricate a story, a Writer is a type of person that, when they get a thought, they simply let the thought, translate from the fingers, onto the keyboard. A true Writer is an Artist that knows just how to create, using the spoken word, without bringing even more, of the unnecessary Drama, that is already around, this broken Society. Good Writer’s will write a story and totally captivate their audience, if a Writer needs to fabricate, then they are not true Writer’s and all they are, is a person that only robs the rest of us from, our hard earned money, then they keep moving forward with their fabrications.

The problem with these kind of Writer’s is, they have been getting away with this Fake writing for way too long and as President Trump is totally outing them, for who they truly are. Ever since President Trump been in office, he has exposed all this corruption and the Fake news has no answer, for who they have become, so they keep trying to sweep the error of their ways under the rug, while we the people become smarter and the publications actually doing as they should and outing these thieves from robbing us further.

To be a great writer is not just about making big money, as it is totally about not just captivating your Audience, but the true feeling deep within your soul, when you write a true story, that touches many, throughout all the paths of this journey of life. Good writing is more about reality and less about being fake or something you truly are not, that’s the problem of this Society, we try so hard to become something we truly are not, that we totally forget what true reality is anymore. Just because you don’t like someone for all the success they have had, or maybe the person you voted for didn’t get voted into the office of their choice, that is no reason to fabricate a story about them, this will only make yourself look even dumber in the long run, as eventually everything will catch up and fry your A$$, with Karma taking a big chunk out as well.

The truth is, you don’t really need a platform to write, you just need a computer and internet connection, then as you write good honest and truthful writings, your audience will come and be captivated by your every word. Then as your audience learns of the great words you create, they will then keep coming back and hanging on your every word.

 

” A good writer will write to captivate, a bad writer will write to be fake and create more and more drama”

” A platform is to stand on to seem taller than you are, not too try to have your opinion seem bigger than the rest”

” Fake news is to drama, as telling the truth is all about reality”

” When you write from the heart there is no need to fabricate anything”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The real sporting news……….

Slide 4 of 12: MINNEAPOLIS, MN - FEBRUARY 04: Rob Gronkowski #87 and Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots celebrate their 4-yard touchdown pass during the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles  in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

Last nights Superbowl between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, one team over the last couple decades  being the giant and the other team being David and the under dog. Just like as David slew the giant in the Bible, the underdog team the Eagles, took the best shots of the Patriots and slew them to win their first Championship in team history. Now with Tom Brady going over 500 yards, three touchdowns and no picks, that alone if I didn’t see the game, would think the Pats have won yet again? But David……….aka the Eagles stood tall and with a great game plan, slew the patriots and is now the Superbowl Champions.

There will be a lot of story lines coming out of this one, with the sports Journalists trying to spin their takes of the game, but no matter how you slice it, or in this case write it, it was a great offensive football game by both teams, with their defenses being knocked around, like the tumbleweeds within the desert. The game ended as I thought it may, with someone on the defensive side, coming up with a big play and that play came from the Eagles, with the strip sack of the G. O. A. T. Tom Brady. This only proves that you are only as good as your last game and like in any sport, when you have a great game plan and execute that game plan, step up to the plate, then you also can become a champion of whatever sport you play.

The legacy of Tom Brady and Bill Belichek should not be tarnished in any way, shape or form, simply because the Eagles stepped up to the plate with a great game plan and beat a Champion, in a one game take all match, which then proves beyond all doubt, that anybody can be beaten, on any given day. What most people tend to forget is, your legacy isn’t built from just one game, it is built from many games, many accolades through the many games and the Championships you win along the way. Brady and Belichek have done just that and deserve the respect for which they get, but unfortunately in the Politically correct world for which we live, we have all become lazy and do not want to put in the work, like Brady and Belichek have done to get to this point in their career.  Then you have the so called Media, the true cockroaches of the world, that will spin around the spoken word, so they can print them as their own, to fit within their agendas and even worse, create more unnecessary drama, then what is already around us now.

The Philadelphia Eagles not only had a great game plan, executed that plan, but they also stepped up to the plate and beat a true Champion in the sport of football. You could tell they worked hard all year in practice, so on game day they could execute the game plan they worked hard on in practice. Talk is cheap and action speaks much louder, so like the patriots have been doing all these years, the Eagles did yesterday and with that, are now the Superbowl Champions within the world of football. Congrats to the Philadelphia Eagles on their Superbowl win, as now the hardest part is about to hit you and that is, to repeat and keep winning for as long as the Patriots, which then builds a legacy of great football, great practice, showing less chatter with more action and becoming the best you can be, each and every game day moving forward.

 

” Talk is cheap and actions speaks much louder, whether you are in the game of football, or you are in the game of life”

” David and the giant may be a Biblical story, but it is a story that when you truly believe, builds character and strength”

” Create a game plan then work that plan and with more action less chatter, makes for a successful game plan”

” The game of football is the chess game of life and with the right game plan, we all can experience being a true champion”
