” God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble”
” Lord may every earthly loss serve to lead me to the cross, whatever good things come and go in this life, let the cry of my heart always be, ” God is all I need””
Throughout this journey of life, there will be so many changes that will cross our paths, they will have our heads spinning, and even so much, we will then become so confused, we get lost with which direction to go. The loved ones that we lose, the friendships that get lost, these are just two of the changes we face, that will change who we are or become, there are so many other changes and very different changes from each other, that no wonder why we of this society have become so broken and confused, not too mention the fact that, we have lost who we truly are as well.
These two pictures I have here, are of the same quarry, but two different looks into the quarry. This is a slate quarry within the state of Vermont, back in a time way before ours within this society, these slate quarries were happening, and a thriving industry, settlements, and townships were created around these quarries, just so they had the labor to keep mining these quarries. Now, these quarries are not so thriving and a lot of the townships, have become Ghost towns, for us to explore as we wish. Back within this time, they did not have the technology of today, but if you explore these Ghost towns, it makes you wonder, just how they built up these towns, with many of the buildings still standing today. Those back in these times really knew how to build, and as I look at some of the buildings of today, those from that time, have built a better product than those of today. Makes you really think of, just how out of focus we have become, simply because of all the power, control, and greed.
Each society throughout this journey is supposed to be better than the last, I get that, but in so many ways, we of this society have taken so many steps backward, than we have taken forward. With all the technology at our fingertips today, but yet how dumb we have become as well, yes, we have some of the smartest minds among us, but as they step out of their labs, they then become so dumb within everyday life. We all want to either invent or be part of the next best thing so bad, that now we lose sight of all the everyday things and not just lose sight, but now we look at all those around us as, not being on the same level as each other anymore. I get that some may be more gifted than others, the IQ of some may be higher than others, but that does not mean, we are different than each other. It is totally on us the people of this society, that this great technology we have, has in some ways, knocked us backward, instead of forward.
Just like in societies of the past, not everybody had a hand in the next best thing, the problem within this society is, we get so jealous of each other for this, that now hatred for one another comes into play, and when hatred gets involved, now you add in a whole different beast, that will grab a hold of us and bring us into a world so ugly, that now we all become someone for who we are not, just to try to avoid all the pain and hurt that will come to us as well. You have leaders of countries today, that are so focused on world dominance, that they will do anything they can to get away with, just so they can achieve this. They do not care who they hurt, maim, or kill either, they want all the power, control, and greed they can get, and when they get it, then we all will suffer such great pain, that none of us will be of who we truly are anymore.
Sumer, located within Mesopotamia, was the first known society of Mankind. There have been many societies within Mankind, but we of this society, have become so out of focus lately, that we think we are the first and only society, that really matters throughout this journey of life. I have a newsflash for you, sometimes it is okay to glance back, not just to see what happened back then, but to see where we once were, so we can fix what we need to fix, in order to move forward better and stronger. Each society throughout this journey, is so very different from one another, that sometimes we need to see what they did, whether right or wrong, so we don’t fall into the same traps they fell into as they moved forward. Some of the Engineers back then, in some ways, were as smart or even smarter than the ones of today. but like all other societies throughout this journey, we all go through many changes as well, and when we do not accept and adapt, to these changes correctly, this is what makes or breaks the entire society, not to mention, the people within the society that want nothing for each other, but everything for themselves.
There were many people in each society, this society is no different than those societies in that respect, which goes to a good point, it is the people of each society and the actions they take, that will either make or break a society. Then you add into the equation of, power, control, and greed, now you have a beast so big, and so strong, that it may seem like we are doomed at whatever we do within the society. We of this society are at such a crossroad right now, we totally think that some will achieve this world dominance? Well, that is determined if we the people step up to the plate, wake up to the coffee of life, look the Bully square in the eyes, so we can put the fear of God right back into them, so they cower away like the true coward they are. You want to think or be better than the previous society? then step up to the plate, accept and adapt properly to all the changes that come our way, so we can end this great divide that divides us so much, to truly move forward and be better and stronger than the previous society. This journey through life isn’t all about me, it is about us, and how I can contribute, so we can totally be better for it, then just maybe this society in the name of God, can truly be, the best society moving forward. We have all the tools to do it, now it is on we the people, and our actions toward one another, that will determine our fate, as we move forward along our paths, through this journey of life.
” Change is something that none of us can avoid, which is why it becomes so much on how we accept and adapt to the change moving forward”
” Each society throughout this journey has had their greatness as well as their downfalls, that’s why we need to learn from the bad to be at our greatest”
