That Erie feeling within peace and serenity

image

          There is always an Erie calm before the storm, a time that the water is smooth like glass, a time where the quietness has you waiting for something or someone to jump out and take you by complete surprise. The calm will help you get back in touch with your inner self, your true feelings and emotions, it will help you get back to who you truly are. In this troubled and fast paced society is very easy to forget who you are, very easy to get caught up in all the ugliness just to try to blend in, while blending in is when you lose sight of who you are and lose sight of all true reality, which is why we get that Erie feeling, when we are in the calm before the storm hits, as the calm is only we ourselves getting back to who we are and the fear from the storm is we ourselves actually feeling our true feelings and emotions.

           Throughout this journey of life there will be many storms, there will be many feelings of erieness which will have us fear many things. The unknown is one of the greatest ways for which will bring the fear of the Erie to us. The unknown not knowing what is to come, or just not knowing what is in front of us, this is where the fear then fills our spirit burying our true feelings and then having us lose sight of who we truly are. There is no pleasure in fear as well as no pleasure in the Erie feelings within us, it is in the calm before the storm if we only looked at it correctly, that heals us from the ugliness and has us truly look deep within, so our feelings and emotions will never become buried from the fear of that Erie feeling.

          In today’s world we are dealing with the fear of the unknown and none more than this virus that has encompassed us all. We have learned so much of this Corona Virus but yet we still fear it, we fear most that even if you have no symptoms that we can still be a carrier of it, then what we fear most is, the fact that we can infect those we love and who we are so very close to. We are all effected by this and all our jobs have closed except those essential in fighting this virus, we are in a fight with an invisible enemy and this enemy if we don’t fight back correctly will end us, this unknown enemy is robbing us of who we are and forcing us to close ourselves off from all that is around us. The one thing that we fear most is, after this virus becomes controlled and we all get back to living, it is the hidden fear of PTSD that then we must battle, as now the virus has left its scar deep within as we try to move forward better and stronger, as we get back to walking our paths through this journey of life.

          We must always travel through the darkness to get to the light, just that the darkness will bring us in contact with our fears, in the darkness we get blindsided from reality and it’s not til we see the light that we then get in touch with reality. We all fear something even if we do not admit to the fear, only because we think fearing anything is a sign of weakness and in this society, weakness will bring on the storm stronger than we can handle. The fear is always at its mightiest in the darkness, then in the light it hides deep within us, as it pushes our true feelings and emotions further away from us, so as the calm comes to us, it should never frighten us, only the calm can heal us from the ugliness if we truly see what we are looking at. We all walk through the darkness of this journey, we all walk in the darkness of the shadow of death, the fear grows stronger in the darkness of the unknown, but when we see the light the fear then disappears, as we then get within the calm of the light, so we then walk this journey in peace, with no fear moving forward into reality, instead of moving backward deeper into the fear of the darkness.

” as we walk in the fear of the shadow of darkness, let the light bring us to the calm and who we truly are”

“The calm before the storm brings us to the Erie feeling of the darkness, in the light there is peace instead of the Erie feelins”

” The corona virus fear is the unknown feeling from not knowing if your a carrier or not, so you don’t infect those closest to you”

With troubling times comes being safe and even when it concerns the health and well being of one another. We are all effected by this virus of covid  19 or the China virus, that’s for another story. Now even though you may seem healthy, you may still have this virus, which then could be a death sentence to some who may cross your path, it is very contagious and is passed from any little dribble of fluid that may come from you, like sweat or spitting as you speak, then if you should touch a surface now you have infected that surface for 3 or 4 days, which makes it that much more important to clean up after yourself.

Now I have learned that this strain of virus will die in the heat, so with spring here and warmer weather coming is a good thing for all, but with that said let’s never forget this and always air on the side of caution, for the health and well being of each other. Now with us all staying home and getting back in touch with what is really important like our families, may we all rebuild that family bond that has become lost within this fast paced society. May we all from this family bond, show more true love and empathy of each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

We all walk this journey through life, it should never be just about yourself, as we then should always have compassion for each other moving forward, as this is how we move forward better and stronger. It should never take a bad time or any virus for us to see this, this should be our instinct, as when we have faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, the hope will always be there for us and when we stay true to who we are, it will be natural for us without having to think about it.

The biggest problem in this society is we the people and we the people can fix this as well. Greed has overwhelmed us to the point it has clouded our judgments. We need to get back to what is true, like it is not about the quantity of what you have which can be taken as easy as it was earned, it should be the quality of what you have, especially when it comes to the love, empathy and compassion of each other. This journey really isn’t that hard, but we the people have made it hard with our actions toward one another and as we let the power of greed control every fiber of our being.

 

 

” stay safe to all as we all get back in touch with who we truly are”

 

 

“The family bond is how we grow to be better and stronger throughout this journey”

 

” we the people are what is wrong in this society, we the people can fix the wrongs also for all”

 

” it should never take a virus for us to come back to reality, we should always see the reality as we stay true to who we are”

 

 

National day of Prayer

20170810_123212.jpg

” Jesus answered and said to her ” if you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you” ‘give me a drink’, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water”

Jn 4:10

 

Basically with this passage, it is saying that we in this society have not only walked away from Jesus Christ but because of that, we also have lost the true faith and hope that Jesus gives us, when we acknowledge him and his love for us that is deep within our hearts and souls always and forever, then Jesus will always walk this journey with us, as we move forward better and stronger.

 

May we all join together in Prayer today not just for ourselves, but for each other asking Jesus to waive his healing hand over the world, so this virus that has encompassed the world, will disappear, leaving us all with good health and prosperity. Prayer is something that we have lost the faith in, now yes I get the fact that Jesus may not seem real to us in this society and I get the fact that it may be hard to have faith in someone that we have never seen, but that is what having true faith in someone or something is all about. When we have true faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, this is what gives us all hope moving forward to be better and stronger.

 

This picture shows the calm peacefulness of the water while showing the true beauty of what is around you,  very true that the water can be churned up and show us a very different picture, but when we truly feel the love of Jesus deep within our hearts and souls, truly have the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we all can see the hope of goodness always right in front of us, with zero ugliness like we see today. The love of Jesus Christ is that bridge helping us over the troubled waters when the water becomes churned up,

 

Currently, right now we are walking the forty-day journey known as Lent, which quite frankly does not surprise me that such a virus would run rampant among us, only because this should be all the proof we need to show us, just how much we have distent ourselves from the love of Jesus. When we truly feel the love of Jesus within us, this will then help us all not only be in touch with our true feelings of love but will also let us share this love with each other, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

Through love is where the quaint peacefulness comes from, with faith is where we have hope for anything, then when the waters become churned up, the storm will never last as with Jesus it will only be a passing storm that will cleanse the earth of all the bad, leaving nothing but good with the bright sunshine of all our love at every turn of this journey. May the peace of God be with you always, as the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls shines as brightly as the sun on a clear day, so we all can walk our paths in peace and walk this journey together in harmony with each other throughout the world, leaving the ugliness of Satan and all the viruses behind us forever throughout this journey.

 

” National day of Prayer so we all can heal from the ugliness and become one with each other, while we renew the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls”

 

” True the waters can be churned up and become ugly, but with the faith of Jesus he can be the bridge to help us cross the churned-up waters”

 

” The forty-day journey is for us all to renew ourselves with Jesus, so we can cleanse ourselves of all the ugliness that has consumed us”

 

” With faith, we will always have the hope to get through anything that may try to knock us off course and avoid the bumps and bruises that Satan may try to inflict on us”

 

 

Study: China Lied, Wuhan Virus Did Not Originate in Meat Market

” get out within nature for the clean fresh air as well as the beauty”

” The study’s estimate for when the virus started spreading is the earliest yet on record, suggesting that the virus may have first begun spreading in Wuhan as early as November 2019. It condemned the Chinese communist regime for failing to alert residents earlier about the outbreak to ensure that people took safety precautions, particularly at crowded events and in hospitals: “If the warning [after the market shut down in January] had attracted more attention, the number of cases both nationally and globally in mid-to-late January would have been reduced.”

” Scientists used gene sequencing technology from 93 virus samples and analyzed their haplotypes — groups of genes inherited together from a single parent organism. They found that all the samples with a reported link to the market contained the same haplotype, which they called H1.
But when the scientists dug deeper, they found that three more-ancestral haplotypes — H3, H13, and H38 — appeared in several cases with no reported ties to the market, including one in the southern city of Shenzhen and another in the United States.
That makes it relatively likely that the virus was introduced into the market from outside and began passing between people earlier than previously thought, according to the study”

Taken from an article off of Breibart news, who fact checks everything before they print

This is very disturbing news from China but why does this not surprise me? If this is 100% correct that the Communist party in China did this deliberate and lied to the world, then this is nothing short of an act of war. With that said…….. I think it is time that here in America and where China controls all the Pharmaceuticals around the world, especially all the medications that are given to help heal from diseases, that just maybe it is time we become dependant to no one and produce our own here, just like we have become self-reliant with the oil as we do not rely on another country anymore. It is pretty sad that in this society full of technology everywhere you go, but yet you just can not trust anyone or even a country anymore.

There have been many different viruses throughout the history of mankind, now a lot of the numbers from way back may not have been kept of who were affected or who died, unlike in today’s society where the media likes to control all this just so they can try to have all the power of us all, but just the thought of a family member becoming sick with a virus like this, or even worse from a part of the world that blatantly lied to its own people and the world, that is the part that makes me even sicker then any virus can make me. We in this society will stop at nothing not just for the power of each other, but we will attack one another in any way that we can and not even lose a night’s sleep, this is what bothers me the most. Maybe because I am in touch with my empathy more than those around me, but this is the real change that we all need, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

Communist China is a country I will never trust, especially with this information from Breibart News, but yet we rely so much on them not just in the medical world, but a lot of companies have fled from this country to there just so they can have cheap labor? I think it is time to leave China and with all the technology and all the smart engineers and workers here in America, we do not need China which is now the time to be independent on ourselves, without relying on any other country for anything.

MAGA is an acronym for Make America Great which was made famous by our now President, Donald Trump, part of this MAGA is for us all to be much smarter and use our common sense to outsmart all those other countries and because of this there are a lot of other countries as well as some among us, who hate us beyond hate, they want to destroy America because they are jealous of us, well the time is now too outsmart them and let them wither away like the snake they are, as we become independent on ourselves without relying on any outside source, America is truly great as well as the citizens of this great country, so let’s unite together against all te hate, so we can walk our paths in peace, with true happiness at every turn throughout this journey.

” When a lie affects us all around the world, time to tighten the sanctions so tight that you then cripple yourself”

” Nature where the air is clean and fresh away from those who want to hurt us all for nothing but to have all the power”


You need not fire a shot to have an act of war, just release a virus throughout the world to kill a large number of people is all the action you need”

There are roads then there are roads

 

 

There are many roads for us to navigate upon as we drive in our vehicles, some of these roads will be traveled by many as well as roads that may seem very desolate. What most here in this society take for granted is, at one time very many years ago, even within a much earlier century, there were no roads, you wanted to get from point A to point B, then you found a way, whether by foot or maybe you were smart enough to tame a wild horse, to become your friend as well as your transportation.

Back in time at a place in history where we off today have zero ideas of, our ancestors actually found a way around not having a vehicle as they weren’t even thought of yet, so much we have today never even existed back then, but we of today take them so for granted. outbreaks of illness or viruses that make their way around the world, back then they dealt with the best of their ability and yes many perished from the sicknesses, but they didn’t panic as the left bias media wants us to today, speaking of media….. there was no such thing as you knew nothing of what was going on around you if something was happening in China, you knew nothing here in the new world known as the Americas.

We have become so engulfed with all this ugliness, hatred and drama in this society, we have totally forgotten what we truly are here for. We have forgotten that we are all here to walk our paths through this journey of life, not all of us take the same paths, but the journey is all the same, with the same beginning as well as an ending. God also sent his one and only son here to walk his journey here with us, his name was Jesus Christ and he taught us many things as he led us to the path of righteousness, but unfortunately within this society of chaos and craziness, we all have wandered to far away from Jesus, as a matter of fact, there are some who have totally lost the belief in him as well. Jesus does not discriminate he loves us all equally and he will never leave us, only we will leave him as we lose the faith and belief in him.

We all have our own way to chat with and be with Jesus Christ, some may go to a house of God to be nearer to him, as others will do so in their own privacy, there is no right or wrong way, we just have to believe in our hearts, to have the faith in Jesus, so we all then can feel his presence deep within our souls. Now even within the house of God, there may be some who go just to say they are there, then as they leave forget totally of why they were there? Within this society, if you even say the name of Jesus, people will give you funny looks, religion, and politics some say do not mix and when you talk publicly of them, now you are cast a crazy person, only because others are trying to hide who they truly are, for one reason or another. This society has become so engulfed within a media that really does not care for you and me, that we all have stopped walking our paths through this journey of life and are only wandering and existing in our fake realities, instead of being true to who we are, having faith in and believing in Jesus Christ, so we can truly feel his existence deep within our souls, then as we accept Jesus within our hearts, we then can get back to truly walking our paths with a purpose and being truly happy throughout this journey of life, without being caught up in all the drama, being consumed so much within the left bias media, then just maybe all the fake media will go away and only the true real media remains? Some media wants you to follow them like the twelve disciples followed Jesus, but as you stay true to who you are, you will clearly see that there is a big difference between Jesus and the media.

There are roads and then there are roads, whether you travel on a paved road or you elect to take the dirt road, there really is no right or wrong road as we all will go our own way, we will walk our own paths throughout this journey, now some may become jealous for others seem to have more, it really does not matter of what you have, only when you keep Jesus within your hearts and feel his presence within your soul, now you will have all you need, so you then can walk your paths successfully throughout this journey of life, as you move forward in the peace and happiness you so deserve.

 

” A dirt road or a paved road it really doesn’t matter if you travel correctly on the road”

 

” Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and souls, we just have to accept to truly feel his presence”

 

” Never take anything for granted as you never know when this journey will end and all is taken from us”

 

” Faith and belief is not just reserved for Jesus Christ, it is also for ourselves as well to be better and stronger moving forward”

 

 

 

 

Get out and explore………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Now that Winter is almost fully in the rearview mirror, it is about that time to start switching gears and getting ready to get out within mother nature once again. Enjoying all the true beauty that is around you, enjoying the sweet smell of the fresh clean air, without the smog and funky smells of the city. Get the kayak ready and stretch out the camping gear, plus this season I will be attaching a go-pro to the kayak and taking some great video for my U-tube channel, maybe even attaching to my backpack for some hiking video as well, I also thought I never would, but I have also started an Instagram for another platform to show my adventures in mother nature and share some great pictures as well as videos. so now you can follow my words here, then my adventure trips on my twitter, my Facebook page at tireless freelance writing, my Instagram and let’s not forget some great video on my U-tube channel as well.

I can’t wait to get out within mother nature and leave this broken society in the rearview mirror for a while, spend a week or two within the woods full of adventure without listening to all the drama at every turn, the biggest problem within this society is, we all get so wrapped up within the unwanted print news or the tv news, that we forget there is so much beauty all around us. Then there is this thing called work, yes we all need to work to make the ends meet and take whatever adventures we take, but it is also good to step away from the daily grind, step away from the daily drama and all gossip that we try to avoid, clear our minds of all the crap so we can heal ourselves of our troubles and start fresh with a clean slate, to move forward better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

I don’t know about you? But I am done with all this election crap, all the attacking of each other on the debate stage, I mean if you can not run for a public office on your own merits without attacking your opponent, then maybe you shouldn’t be running for any office at all, that is just my opinion. Then there are all the lies and making yourself out to be somebody you are not no wonder why this society is so broken? Now there are some who live for all this drama, the bickering, the attacking and get so consumed with all this crap, that they then forget that there is this thing called life, that you need to actually work at, so you can walk your path as smoothly as you can. Plus there are these candidates that offer free stuff as their pitch to get into office and there are some who actually buy into this pitch, who do you think will actually pay for this free stuff? You guessed it, the ones that actually work very hard and pay their taxes, so those lazy types can buy into all the free talk.

Mother Nature has a lot more to offer you than any so-called candidate, that will offer you the world and never deliver on what they offer, true mother nature can at times show her fury, but also true that she has so much beauty for us all to see as well and even better, with each trip into her back yard, you will always see something different. Then there is all the different plant life, some that you will never see in your daily grind, the so many different species of wildlife for us all to enjoy to see in their natural habitats, now as we venture within mother nature let’s not forget two major rules, 1, we are now in the home of all the wildlife, so we need to respect them as we want others to respect our homes, 2, always leave no trace behind and respect the land for future visits, not to mention so we can always venture into mother nature to see all the beauty and not the crap that some may leave behind. We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, so if we all come together in unity, respect each other, show empathy of each other, then just maybe we can eliminate all the crap, the hatred, and the ugliness, as we all move forward in peace and harmony always.

 

” The beauty of mother nature is all around us we just have to get out and explore”

 

” Respect goes a long way when each one of us does it together”

 

” If you can not run for an office on your own merits then maybe you should not run for that office”

 

” Mother nature is free and unlike what some may say you can actually venture out and enjoy all her beauty”

 

 

40-day journey well worth any sacrifice

 

 

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

 

With yet another Lenten season upon us and as the 40-day journey has begun with us going to church and having the ashes placed on our foreheads, let us all sacrifice something within our lives much the same as Jesus did, showing our faith in the Lord and we haven’t forgotten what he did for us all when he walked his journey here with us.

Jesus also walked this 40-day journey and was confronted by many a temptation, with the biggest temptation coming from Satan himself. We like Jesus get tempted by the power of temptation many times through this journey but as Jesus kept the faith in his father as well as himself, showed to us all that even with the power of temptation bearing down on our souls, when we stay true to who we are when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, we to can overcome all temptation and no matter how hard we struggle, we can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger and reach for the stars as there is no force strong enough to conquer us as we move forward, just as Jesus did throughout the 40-day journey.

The Lenten season is one of the most special times of the year, but if you have lost all faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, have become a non-believer in any kind of higher power,  then this time of year will have you wondering with no direction and susceptible to any kind of temptation that may come your way. Temptation is a very powerful force that will control everything in its path, yes it can suck you in but it will also spit you out just as fast and it really does not care for the condition it may leave you. We all will be tempted by each other as well. we see one with a lifestyle you dream of, then wonder why you can not have the same? We may try but then end up with much more issues then we can handle, when we just simply be who we truly are, sacrifice when we need to move forward better, so we then can have the strength to resist all temptation that may knock us down and keep us stepping backward instead of moving forward.

Temptation is quite simply Satan trying to take control of us all as well as everything else within this world, temptation at times will come with a sugar coating surrounded by whip cream and cherries, it will promise us the world but never deliver on its promise. When we stay true to who we are, resist all that the temptation may bring to us, never lose the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we can resist and conquer all that temptation may bring to us, so we may prosper and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned for us all. You can clearly see within this society of today, that there are so many that have given in to temptation, so many that have lost the faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ and because of that we are all traveling in so many directions, that we all have lost our way and there is no GPS made that will bring us back in the right direction, only Jesus himself can do this, but as we have let Satan control us through the temptations, we do not even give Jesus a thought, let alone even having any faith at all.

So as we walk yet another 40-day journey through lent, let us walk it with a purpose, let us walk it with meaning, as we sacrifice as Jesus did, learn that when we resist the temptation that not all is lost and the world will not end, as with the total belief in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, we can get back to who we truly are, we can get back to walking our paths with confidence, so this journey through life will have a meaning once again, it will have a true direction without wandering in circles, through temptation we become stripped from being of who we truly are and lose sight of what this journey is really about. With the total belief in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we then can truly find that path of righteousness, which Jesus told us about as he walked this journey with us, but right now as we have become overwhelmed with the power of temptation, we are all walking in so many different directions, that we have lost the sight of true reality which will lead us nowhere and further away from, having any faith in ourselves or Jesus Christ.

That old saying of, ” keeping up with the Jones” is so far from the truth, but as we become tempted to do so, we find that what may be good for one, may not be good for another. This journey is full of many paths as well as many temptations, but the only way to walk this journey confidently is, to be truly of who we are and to have complete faith in Jesus Christ, as he showed us in his 40-day journey, just how much he loved us, by the true sacrifice he made for each one of us. It is not about forcing oneself and your beliefs on each other, as it is totally about loving one another, no matter of what may cross our paths and when we walk our paths correctly, then this journey through life will be that of peace and happiness for us all, so as we take stock in our lives in this Lenten season, let us all throw out what we do not need and sacrifice these things, so we then can move forward with what is important, as we then follow the lead of Jesus Christ, away from all temptation, to be better moving forward and as we show respect, dignity, and love toward one another always, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The season of lent is one of sacrifice, much like Jesus did while he showed his true love toward all”

 

” During the season of Lent, we should take stock in our lives sacrifice what we do not need and move forward better with only what we need”

 

” 40 days and 40 nights to get back to who we truly are and move forward better and stronger”

 

” Temptation is a strong force but we are stronger when we stay true to who we are”
