The Peaceful beach really exists

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We have all dreamt of waking up on that secluded sandy beach, but as we walk our paths through this journey of life and get so caught up within this society, especially a society full of ugliness, hate and tragedy’s, the secluded beach gets lost within the clouds of our judgements, which then disappears from our minds, leaving us with no where to turn, to escape the crap within the society.

Oh!!! that secluded beach is very inviting, but what really lurks deep within the forest behind such a beautiful beach? You tie off your vessel to secure it, as you find that magical space, to which set up your area of secludeness, as you sit there and look out into the water and clear your mind with relaxing thoughts, there is that one thought that keeps rearing it’s ugly head, as you keep turning and checking the forest behind and seeing if something is sneaking up from those woods behind you?

The woods of the forest so dense and thick with natural growth, makes it hard to get a good look at what might creep up from behind you? So you than get up, go to the vessel and grab the oar or whatever you have as a weapon, you go for a  little jaunt within the woods to explore and look at what is around you. The one thing you certainly find is that, the woods has it’s own kind of beauty, that compliments the beauty of the secluded beach perfectly, okay maybe you didn’t find anything terrorizing, or something vicious that would want to bring you harm this time, that don’t mean it is not there and reason why we should never let our guard down, but at the same time, never let it affect us to the point, that we never find the secluded beach and enjoy totally all of it’s true beauty.

Looking at this picture helps me remmember the television show Gilligan’s Island, makes me day dream of what it might be like being stranded on an uncharted Island with a very secluded beach, building a hut as a make shift house to hang my hat, be intrigued for what I may find, or even live as primitive as the Caveman, back in the history of Mankind. Creating and making your own inventions and tools, living within a world for which has only been within your head, to that point. Just think of it for a minuate…….. No chaos, no corruption, no ugliness or hatred, the only thing around is you and what ever lurks within the forest of that sandy beach, who knows there just might be Heaven on Earth and not just within our heads.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, it is we the people with our thoughts and actions, that bring this corruption, chaos and hate to this society, so the best way to end all this crap is, for each of us to escape the claws of denial and get back to living as Jesus taught us, get back to walking this journey with positive thoughts, as we stop all the negative chit chat and let our true actions do all the speaking we need, to move forward and not backwards, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

 

 

” The peaceful sandy beach is so inviting, let’s never just see the peace and look truly into everything around it”

” The difference between a dream and reality is, a dream is fake news and reality we all live  together with our actions”

” To be secluded on a private sandy beach may seam like a dream, but that is really not what reality is”

” We escape reality to enter into our little dream worlds even for a short time, we can never do the opposite because it does not exist and not of who we truly are”

To look deeply into what you see, with the right focus

Unfortunately within this society we do not focus on the right things, to truly see the reality of what is around us. “If life was like a deck of cards, we all today are clearly lost within the shuffle of the deck”. Take this picture for instance, most would just float on by without seeing the coolness or the, intrigue part of what we see. There is so much we can learn and see when we get out and explore within nature, the problem we all have is, we are all lost within the shuffle, that we clearly can not see what is around us, which has us all missing the important parts, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look no further than the Individuals for who we vote into office, that are suppose to come together to lead us, to make all our lives better, as these Individuals are clearly lost within the shuffle of the cards of life, which has them in the wrong section of this journey and most dangerous, the section of denial which they clearly can not see any true reality that is around them. If we all just take a step back, look deeper into what we see, then we can stop the shuffle of the deck, get back to true reality and truly see all that is around us, as we then see all the true beauty as well.

This picture is so cool on so many levels, as you look at what is in front of you, you can see all that is within nature, from the erosions, to the new life. The tree may look as if it is growing out of the rock? But when you look deeper, you clearly can see that, through the erosion of the river at it’s highest point, has the roots of the tree becoming exposed to the light of day. Everything in life is subject to erosion over time, even we as Humans erode over time, as when we reach our Golden years, not only does our bodies change, but our minds erode as we call this ” Alzheimer’s, but our pride has us not excepting as we should. With all that is eroding in nature, there is even more new life that comes in, which is also known as the ” cycle of life”. The Cycle of life is a big part of the journey we all walk, just that we take too much for granted everything within the journey, we clearly do not see the cycle. Those within the walls of Washington DC talk so much on global warming or climate change, that they have forgotten, a big part of what is within the life cycle, true we the people with our bad habits and decisions, can and will be a part of the life cycle, but the cycle of life is something that is going to happen no matter what, this is just a part of this journey through life that we need to understand better, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward, without being lost within the shuffle of the deck.

Getting lost within the shuffle of the deck is, kind of like being lost within a big city and never going outside of the city. You protect yourself from what is around you in the city, that you then don’t look at the bigger picture around you, you don’t get out and explore anything that is outside of your comfort zone, which then has you not truly seeing any true reality that is around you. This is kind of like being in denial, which has you making up your own reality, instead of living within true reality, yes there is that element of danger when we get out and explore within nature, it takes us away from our comfort zone, but if we never get out and explore, we will never truly understand what is around us, nor will we ever truly understand the true reality of this journey through life, as we walk our paths within our comfort zones, protecting us from what is around us and losing touch with the ” cycles of life”.

” To look deeper into what is around you, you first have to refocus and get out and explore new things”

” This journey of life is like a deck of cards, which we all get lost within the shuffle”

” Denial keeps us in our comfort zone, which then has us making up our own reality”

” The life cycle of this journey through life is something we all need to understand better, to move forward better and stronger”

The power of the Holy Spirit

” But when he comes, the spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth, he will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming” JN 16:13 The Holy Spirit is a very powerful force, this force is within us all, as it guides us like Jesus does, to walk this journey in peace and as we strive for the path of Righteousness. Today is Pentecostal Sunday, this is the celebration of the finding of the Catholic Church, the very place we enter into the house of God. This is also the day that Jesus came to his Disciples and spoke to them, giving them their direction for which to travel, from here the Disciples went each their own way and gathering others, to speak the true words of Jesus Christ, these gathering places are what we know today as the house of God, or the Catholic Church, where we go today to pray and ask for his forgiveness of our sins. The power of the Holy Spirit operates totally on trust, the trust we have of ourselves and all those around us, in a perfect world the power of the Holy Spirit is alive and well within our souls, when we trust in our selves and trust each other always, but unfortunately within this society of distrust, the Holy Spirit lies dormant within us, as we never give it a chance to shine within us. Trust within this society is our biggest disconnect, without the trust we struggle to move forward with confidence. We become so lost within the clouds of our judgments, we then try to move forward with no direction, with no trust we then become defiant and let the power of denial enter within us, as the Holy Spirit lies dormant within us, through denial we then lose all sight of what reality is, to which we then try to make up our own, which a lot of times, has us wandering this journey, instead of truly walking this journey with confidence. Pentecostal Sunday is a celebration of life for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, it is a time for us to rediscover Jesus Christ, as we get back to truly feeling that Holy Spirit that is within us. When we think we can’t do something and like a miracle, we suddenly are doing what we thought we couldn’t, that is the power of the Holy Spirit, through the trust of ourselves and the Holy spirit, Jesus speaks to us without talking, as then what we thought was impossible, suddenly becomes very possible and now, we walk with confidence on our paths of this journey through life. The trust goes both ways between us and Jesus, just as the trust goes both ways between us and all those around us. The Holy Spirit may seem like a Magician doing his magic, but it is more like when we have that AH HA!!! moment, when one minute we seem like we can’t do something, than the next minute we are doing it with confidence, as all comes together in harmony, so we than can walk our paths of this journey, not just with confidence, but in peace and happiness always. ” The power of the Holy Spirit is deep within all our souls, we just have to acknowledge it to truly feel it’s true power” ” Pentecostal Sunday is the birthday of the Catholic Church, where we all gather to listen as Jesus speaks to us and guides us to the path of righteousness” ” The Holy Spirit is the magician of our souls and with it’s power we can do anything we want to do” ” With the trust of ourselves and of each other, the power of the Holy Spirit will always be there with it’s magic, as we do anything we want to do”

Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

The Greatest Generation

Slide 61 of 100
This was a generation that without even thinking, would stand up and be counted, they stood up and weren’t afraid to face anything that crossed their paths they were walking, this generation has been through so much more, then any other generation that followed them. In today’s generation and within this political correct world, plus with all the technology we have become weak and lazy. Today’s generation couldn’t even hold the jock strap, of the generation from WW2. It’s just not the fact that, the greatest generation going and fighting for all the generations that would follow them, these guys were not selfish, unlike those of today with their selfies. This generation wouldn’t just sit on their A$$es while others went to battle, unlike today’s generation that can’t even get out of their own way, plus today’s generation or at least a high percentage of them, would never go into the Armed forces to fight the good fight, they would rather stay home and play their video games, instead of truly fighting for what they believe in. If it wasn’t for the greatest generation, we of today maybe would never have all the freedoms we have? Maybe we would of been invaded and then forced to be someone for who we truly are not? Or even just maybe we would of been dictated to, told when to use the bathroom, or even wouldn’t of been able to work and put food on our own tables. When you look at some of the cultures out there within this world, we are free to do as we want everyday and we owe that to those of the greatest generation. We buy our own houses today so we can live pretty comfortable and have a decent roof over our heads, but what about the thought of living under a lean to with only two small sides and a roof made out of brush, then when the winter months came, we all froze to the point that, only the strong and healthy survive. The fact is, life would of been a lot different if it wasn’t for these, brave men and woman, who gave a big part of themselves, so we of today can be free, to do all we do, with the freedom to roam as we may, without having to answer to anybody, except ourselves with the actions we are free to take. These men in this boat are getting ready to be unloaded to fight the good fight, but by the smiles on their faces may have us think it was easy of what they did? It was far from easy as they gave their all, for what they truly believed in, some come home not of the same person as they went there with, while they were missing parts, or not even came home at all. We of this society take so much for granted, as those of that generation sacrificed so much and got back so little. We don’t even think of these Individuals for what they did for us, we of this generation lack respect of each other and with that lack of respect, proves further that we do not respect those of yesteryear, which clearly shows why, we are so full of ourselves, that we can not see any good that may be around us. We all walk a path through this journey of life, there is a lot of this journey that we can not do alone, so we need each other as these brave young and woman did along their journey, not too mention their selfless acts for the good for all the generations to come. ” D-day the storming on the Juno beach in Normandy, done by such brave men, for the good of us all in the future generations to come” ” We take so much for granted in today’s world, then get lazy as we play the video games we think is our reality” ” Freedom is never Free, as somewhere and someone has given their all for the freedom we have today”

There is no ” I” in Team……..

To be a Champion in any team sport, comes down to the fact that, it’s not about one or two guys, it is totally a team effort and the Boston Bruins have proved that with the great season they are having. On the verge of yet another Stanley cup victory and the way they as a team rebounded from a lack luster performance in game two, they go two games to one in game three, in the best of a seven game series. Game three wasn’t just a win for the Bruins, they did so in the house of the St. Louis blues and in a dominating way, final score was seven to two, while going four for four on the power play also. This team has a good mix of veteran players, as well as great young talent, with a coach that has his finger on the pulse of each game. Chemistry is another part of being a true champion, it is how you are respected by your teammates, knowing your teammates so you can move as one on the ice with pin point passing, as you gain control of the puck away from the other team. The team whether on the ice or off the ice, has to bond together and be ready to battle for each other, like being a family, with the coaches being the parents of the family. These Boston Bruins are a special group, that have come together in harmony, as they put aside the ego’s to work hard at achieving the most prestigious trophy in all of sports…………….. Lord’s Stanley cup.

The Bruins might of dominated in last nights game three match up, but let’s not forget the St. Louis Blues, this team is built very similar to the Bruins, I am sure game four these Blues will be ready to battle once again, the Bruins will have to be ready for the fight and respond as they did in game three. To get this far and be the last two teams standing within the league, with a chance of being the champions of the hockey world, says a lot of both these teams, now with these Bruins being two wins away from the coveted prize, is no time to become comfortable, as the last two wins are just as hard as the last fourteen. For those true fans of the game of hockey, you have basically two seasons in one and we the fans are blessed with such a great game, now through the years the game has had some changes to it, like being a much faster game then years before, but the basics of the game stay in tact, like the first season being the regular season and the second season being the playoffs. With the playoffs there is a slogan we call ” Mission sixteen”, basically we call it that because it takes sixteen wins to win the playoffs and become the keeper of Lord’s Stanley’s cup.

My earliest memory of these Bruins was also against the St. Louis Blues, with the now famous greatest player to ever lace up the skates………… He is Bobby Orr and with an assist from Derek Sanderson, the rest is history with Bobby flying through the air in front of the goalie, for the goal and the winner of Lord’s Stanley’s cup. The Boston Bruins have a rich history and being one of the six original teams within the National Hockey League, not too mention some of the great hockey talent to wear the spoke “B” on their chest, is the reason why I myself Bleed black and gold. With two more wins this special team of the Boston Bruins can cement their names within the rich history of the organization.

Like Tom Brady has become the G. O. A. T. of the football world, we here in the city of Boston has witnessed two G. O. A. T’s of their sports, with Tom Brady and Bobby Orr. There is a lot of sports history here in the city of Boston and with the Bruins on the brink of winning a championship, along with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all in the same season, which hasn’t been done since the season of 1935/1936, truly gives this city of Boston the title of ” Titletown U. S. A.”.

I love the game of hockey, played the game when I was younger and with my favorite team so deep in the playoffs, like two wins away from winning Lord’s Stanley’s cup deep, it is very exciting right now, with all eyes on this special team. A team that has battled adversity all season, a team that has bonded together more than a team, they have bonded like a family on and off the ice and has been fun too watch this bonding all season. This team has been resilient all season and watching them in game two and game three, proves just how resilient they are, with an ugly performance in two, and a great performance in three. Would love to see this team finish mission sixteen, as not just for the reward for the players on a great season, but for the third time in the same season, the city of Boston can cue the Duck boats once again, for this type of celebration will never get old, especially with my favorite team.

” In team sports there is never an I, as it takes the whole team to work as one and become a true champion”

” The Stanley cup is the most prestigious and hardest trophy to win of all the sports, which makes hockey the coolest game on ice”

” To be a G. O. A. T. of your sport means that you are the Greatest Of All Time”

” Mission 16 in the game of hockey starts with the playoffs as you are on a mission to win 16 more games to be a true champion of the sport you play and love”

Uncharted Water’s

Through the uncharted water’s there is much uncharted land for which to explore and see all the true beauty that is within. At first glance it may not look that inviting? But when you look deeply within as you walk within the dense forest, you clearly see what is hiding deep within the forest, it’s true beauty and the heartbeat of Mother Nature. Land that is still untouched by man, land that the Wildlife roam free, land that in a lot of places you need a canoe or a kayak to get to, as there are no roads leading into it, which is why this land still holds it’s true beauty today.

Some within today’s society get so caught up within the cities, they have no idea of the true beauty around them, they have no idea that there is still uncharted land and water’s all around them, the only way to see this is, to really get out and explore all that is around you. We all work our 9 to 5’s, do our everyday chores, take vacations within our favorite places every year, instead off doing something different, we all get so caught up within the same routine, that we forget there is a far bigger world out there and even a world that, gets lost in the shuffle of life. There is so much to explore, that we don’t even try simply because, we don’t want to get away from the comfort zone we are currently within. Very true within this society we need to make money to survive, but while we are busy making that money, real life is passing us by. we go to our 9 to 5’s and in the process of us making money, we step on each other shine without even seeing at where we are stepping, only because we use each other to get ahead of each other, we think that this is the norm? But this is far from the norm and totally why there is so much ugliness and hatred all around us.

Then there are these ones who totally say what we want to hear, so they can get our votes and become our so called leader’s, as they then forget of what they said to us and only do as they wish for their own agendas? They bicker and attack their fellow constituents, as if we are not here…………. The people who not only put them in office, but the people who they actually work for. There are two parties within the walls of Washington DC, but the way they are all so divided, you would think there are many more than two? They totally think they are doing us all a favor by being in the walls of Washington DC, they really have no clue of how to do the proper job that they are suppose to do. But what they can not see is, the fact that their ideas are so whacked, but yet still push them on the rest of us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, but when we don’t get out and explore all the uncharted lands and the water, then we are not truly walking through this journey as we should be, we are becoming so stagnant that, we are getting in each others way, instead of helping and loving one another, as Jesus showed us when he came to us and walked his journey with us. There is so much more to this journey, but unless we get out and explore, we will never experience the more and only keep furthering, what we may think is all what this life holds.

” The uncharted waters and the uncharted lands, they are their for us to explore, to see the true beauty and keep moving forward better always”

” We are all so full of ourselves, we clearly can not see any good that is around us”

” The two party system does work, just that we can’t stop fighting with each other to truly see that it does work”

” With the true faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, the uncharted waters we shall see is there for us to explore and cleanse us of our pain and hurt”
