The Journey is not all smooth as silk all the time

Yes, it is very true we all walk the same journey of life, we all enter and leave this journey the same, yes, we all may take very different paths through the journey than each other, but at the end of the day, the journey we all walk is all the same for each of us. Now I get the fact that some want to be given everything without working for what they recieve, but who do you think will actually be working for all the stuff that you will recieve? If you think that everything grows on trees, then you need to wake up out of the denial, and get back to reality, before reality comes kick you in the back side of the anatomy.

These two pictures I have here are two very different pictures from one another, one is a trail on the way up a mountain, yes it is very steep, with many hurdles to overcome with each step, this trail comes with much work and very tire some activity, but at the end of the trail, is the summit of the mountain, with views that will take your breathe away, and very differently take your breathe away, unlike the excursion of climbing the trail. Very true the trails of any mountain comes with work, but when you put in the work, the views are like no other you will ever see, as you walk through this journey of life. Now some may never see the comparison of hiking a mountain, to working your nine to five grind? But when you look deeply into what you see, actually get out within nature for that climb, you will find a whole different world out there, than all the crap we see today, within this society of today, not too mention, you will also see that, when you actually put in the work, then all the true beauty will be all around you, with each step along the path you chose.

Now the other picture is of a camping trip I took totally off grid, where you simply shut your phone off, cause there are no towers for any service in this spot. To some they may never go into a place like this, as they are totally addicted to their devices, but this is the kind of place, where you can go and truly relax and unwind from the daily grind. Not just relax the body, but totally relax your mind and soul, without any idea of what time it is, not too mention, don’t have to worry about any deadlines to get the job done. Now don’t get me wrong, setting up your camp properly does take some work, but it is a different kind of work, that gets you in tune,, with the great outdoors. You see that nice campfire? It didn’t just lite on it’s own, first you need to gather the wood, then chop that wood, and pile it up neatly, for the daily use. These fire rings you see are put there by the conservatory groups who work the land, so they can keep their foundations and so we the people, can enjoy the beauty of mother nature. yes they do build up these fire rings for us to use, but when the Yahoo’s go out and abuse the land, now those of us who respect the land, will actually build these fire rings back up, as we build our fires for our daily use, for as long as we are out there in this spot. The biggest group that owns much of the land for us to enjoy, are the AMC club, which stands for, the Appalachian mountain club, and yes you can join their club for a yearly fee, just go to their site for all the details. With clubs like this, we can get outdoors and totally enjoy, all that mother nature has to offer. Let’s not forget about the wildlife out there, as you take to the camping off grid, you now are entering to the home of these animals, and like you wouldn’t want others to come and disrupt your home, the same respect should be for the wildlife homes, you are now camping within. Yes I have seen many Deer, Moose and Bear along my camping endeavors, but if you respect them, and keep your distance, they won’t even be a factor, as you enjoy all the beauty, that mother nature brings to you.

With all the ugliness and chaos within this society of today, yes it can be hard to see any beauty out there, but all we need to do is, look deeply into what we see, get out within mother nature, put in the needed work, so you can then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Yes work can make you tired, just as being lazy can make tired as well, but for me, I would rather put in the work, as now, not only can you enjoy the fruits of your labor, you may also enjoy all the true beauty that is around you as well. There is so much beauty all around us, it makes no sense to me just to sit back and get caught up within all the drama, the rhetoric, and ugliness that is all around us, turn off the TV, turn off the devices and get outdoors, go hiking, go camping and not just camping in a popular spot with others, really get outside your comfort zone, so you can truly be amazed at what is around you. You may find you have senses you thought were never there? You may also learn more of yourself as well as all that is around you? If we of this society took more positive actions, then negative actions, put ourselves on the same pedestals of each other, instead of trying to get ahead of one another, OH!!! what a beautiful world and society we would be living today, if we all regained the respect of one another once again, this journey through life would be a great pleasure to walk once again, it all starts with each one of us, as we walk through our paths, put in the work we need to do, because when we all do this, is when the true beauty of this journey, will shine the brightest for us all, with each step along our paths we chose, through this journey of life.

” Life’s journey is all the same for each of us, it is our paths we chose that is different from another and what we bring to one another”

” The view at the summit of the mountain is so worth the work we put in, to get to the summit we seek”

” The great outdoors can come with some work, but work that is well deserved with the views and the beauty, that will come to throughout the journey”

This Journey will throw many paths at us to walk

” But it not be so among you, rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant, whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all, for the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many”

Mk 10:43-45

This journey through life will give us many paths and throw many curve balls at us, but in the end, it is how we made the right choices on the paths we take, so we can make the right adjustments, to hit all the curve balls out of the park of life, so we can be at peace, with true happiness moving forward. The journey may seem long to some, others may not get the chance to live this journey, within true peace and happiness? The choice is ours to make, as Jesus Christ will always be there to guide us, and all we need to do is, not only have complete faith in ourselves, but have complete faith in Jesus as well, which will always give us the hope, moving forward throughout this journey of life.

There are many factors throughout this journey that we never take the time to truly understand, factors that when they take hold of us, will control every fiber of our being. Factors that we never acknowledge, until it is too late, which then has us spinning out of control, losing faith in ourselves and worse, losing faith in Jesus Christ. These factors will have us not acknowledging that Jesus is within us, as we then bury all our true feelings, so deep within, it is like they do not even exist. Shame and Denial are the two biggest factors we will have to face, as they will turn us into someone for who we truly are not, they will have us do things we normally would not, as when they grab hold of us, their grip is so strong, and we feel so helpless from them, that we then give in to the error of their ways. We become so bombarded with unwanted drama and chaos today, that if we become out of focus along our path, then the power of denial will come and sweep us away, from us being truly of who we are. Just as Jesus resisted the temptation of Satan, we to need to resist Satan, as he will come to us as well, in the form of this denial and shame.

This quote I use here today, is a perfect quote for each one of us within this society, as we do what we can to get in front of one another, even if it is just standing in a line to get on a ride at the Amusement park. We are all so engulfed within the drama of this journey, we have forgotten what this journey is truly about. We are so lost within this society today, because some keep feeding us lies, that we have lost sight of where we are going, we have lost sight of true reality and have fallen into the hands of denial, letting it’s power control every fiber within us. Can we escape the power of denial? You bet we can, but we need to acknowledge Jesus Christ within us, so we than can have the faith in ourselves, as well as in Jesus, to move forward better and stronger. The hands of denial will bring us into a world full of ugliness and chaos, not too mention in a world of negativity and self doubt, then as all the drama compounds around us, it will keep us from seeing any light of salvation, and keep us within the darkness of the denial, which is how Satan stays in power over us all.

Denial will come to us in many ways as we walk through this journey, which is why we need to stay focused at every turn along our paths. Any kind of an abuse like, drugs, alchohol, gambling, or sex abuse to name a few, as we become engulfed in the abuse, is when the denial grabs hold of us, which then the shame comes in, forcing us to become someone we are not, just so we can take the easy way out and not work hard at fixing what we need to fix, so we can move forward better and stronger. Through the denial we become so blinded, that we then put up these walls around us, to try to escape all the pain and hurt, but what we can not see is, by putting up these walls, we then are separating ourselves from reality, and replacing it with this fake reality, that only compounds our issues, instead of fixing our issues for the better. This quote should not only be read by us all, it should be copied and pasted to the walls of our memories, so when we do feel like life is spinning by and we have lost control, we than can reread this quote as many times as we can, so we can fix what we need before its too late, and the walls of self doubt, have turned us into someone we truly are not.

When your moving too fast through the highway of life, this is when you can not see clearly of what is around you, this is when you become out of focus of everything around you, then you add in all the other factors? Now you have become lost along your path of this journey. Can you get back in focus along your path? Yes, as you slow down, look deeply into what is around you, so you then can take the steps to fix what you need to fix, and move forward better and stronger. Denial can and will control everything about you, but when you stay true to who you are, stay true to Jesus Christ and his faith in you, as well as the faith in yourself, there will always be the hope and the light of salvatioin right there in front of you. True this journey will take some work as we walk our paths, but when we stay on top of it and stay focused, it won’t even feel as work, as it will become natural to us all, which is what Jesus taught us when he came and walked his journey with us. When we take the easy way because of our laziness, now we become ripe, for denial and shame, to wrap their big ugly hands around us all and take complete control of us as well, while we are left to become someone for who we are not.

We of this society think we deserve to be served, we think all those around us should be our slaves? We think we are King of the Universe and will never listen to anybody around us, even if they are correct? We think we are the ones correct and all others are wrong? I have a news flash for you, there is nobody in this society that is perfect and yes we all at one time or another have been wrong, so get off your high horse and get back to reality, before reality comes and bites you in the back side of your anatomy, just like Karma will get you everytime. The son of man came to us to serve us and he gave his life for us all, but the saddest part of this society is, there are way too many that have lost sight of that fact and think that they are even mightier than Jesus Christ himself? We all within this society are so out of touch with reality, that the power of denial has taken hold, of a high percentage of us, the time is now to escape the clutches of the denial, so we all can heal from the pain and the hurt, so we all can heal ourselves, then help heal each other, as we then escape the darkness of the denial and the shame, to get within the light of the salvation and the peace and happiness, for which Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his path here with us. We all may take our own path through this journey, but the journey is the same, we all start and end the same, with the middle being the big X-Factor, and what keeps us humble, to be, or not to be, of who we truly are.

” The journey to some may seem long and will throw many curves at you, but when you stay true to yourself with the faith in jesus and yourself, then you can stay focused and away from the power of Satan with his denial and shame”

” The darkness may seem tough to overcome, as it becomes hard to see clearly through it, but when you stay focused on the light at the other end of the darkness, you will always see clearly through the dark”

” Jesus came to us as a servant to us all, he never wanted a slave, he also laid down his life for us all to heal moving forward, so we all can see clearly through the darkness, to avoid the temptations of Satan and his evil ways”

To stay Sharp, no matter of the path through this journey

” Iron sharpens Iron, and one man sharpens another”

Proverbs 27:17

” Jesus looked at them and said, for Human Beings it is impossible, but not for God, all things are possible with God”

Mk 10:27

We of this Society are in this together, as we walk through this journey of life. But!! As you look around, you can clearly see that, we have become so afraid to step out of our comfort zones, we have become so engulfed within ourselves, that we truly have distanced ourselves from one another. We also have become so deep within the world of Political Correction, that we will spin everything we do and say, in a political format. From all this political crap, now everything we do and say have become so negative and bitter, that we have become deeply ugly to ourselves and all those around us. We may through political correction, say nice things to each other, then as soon as we turn our backs, out comes the knife and deeply within all our backs, which brings nothing but great pain and ugliness to us all.

We all of this society think that we ourselves are better than each other, when one talks of doing something, another speaks up with a better story? When one talks of something they did, they then close their ears, when the other talks of what they did? Each one of us will put ourselves on higher ground then others around us, then thumb our noses to those we ” Think” are beneath us. The only thing that this will do for our society is, bring more pain, hurt, bitterness and ugliness, to a journey, that should really be about, love and respect, as Jesus taught when he came to us and showed us, so we can walk this journey, in the peace and joy, that Jesus Christ brought to us all.

The light of Jesus Christ is there within us all, we just through time, have darkened that light, which is leading us down a destructive path of, division, ugliness, chaos and bitterness of everything around us. This is a path that Satan himself is leading us into temptation, he is tempting us with trickery and falsness, to get us all within this cold dark place, that is nothing but low self worth, instead of having any confidence, so we can achieve all that we do, then help each other to also keep moving forward, throughout this journey we all walk. I get the fact that, we will become lost along this journey at times, we will become influenced by the wrong things, then we develop this low self worth of ourselves. When this low self worth sets into us, first we don’t want to admit to this as shame has us within its grip, so we then hide our true selves deep within, and portray this fake self to all those around us. We blame everything and everyone for our insecurities, instead of accepting our time of weakness, instead of fixing what we truly need to fix, so we can move forward in reality and confidence. Political Correction has made us all weak, that has pointed us in a direction of destruction and bitterness at every turn.

This journey through life may seem like a lot when we don’t walk our paths correctly, and get caught up within all ugliness. But!! As we take care of what we need to, stay focused on ourselves and what is around us or within us, then we can have the confidence to resist any temptation, that the darkness of Satan will bring to us. Once the darkness and the cold of Satan has brought this low self worth to us, then we lose sight of the light and the faith of Jesus Christ, as with no faith, there is no hope moving forward. Right now within this society, we are all within Purgurtory, simply because we all fear the darkness that has covered us, we fear more the pain from stepping out of the box, then if we just sit still, within our comfort zones, the darkness has turned us all into the sheep along this journey, instead of being the Shepard, and leading us all into the light of Jesus Christ, to share is love that is within us, with all that are around us, just as he himself did, as he walked his path here with us, throughout this journey of life.

It is never too late to change our ways, but when we have the power of low self worth controlling us, then change we will never see. At least the kind of positive change we may never see, as the negative change that comes within the darkness, will bring us the wrong kind of change, that will make stronger the low self worth of us all, to keep us consumed with all the ugliness and the chaos. Some do not want you to think for yourself, they want you to be dependant on them, so they can seem to us all, as being more powerful then us all. Denial, like shame are very powerful sources within the darkness of Satan, Through the denial, you then lose sight of all true reality around you, which now you keep compounding the lies and live within this fake world, that will destroy yourself and all that is around you. Yes very true that there will be darkness from time to time, but when we stay true to who we are, then the darkness will never last, as now we have the confidence in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, we have the faith to keep alive the hope, to keep moving forward, within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ, which always keeps the light in front of us, at the other end of the darkness. This journey is on us and our actions, but when we take no action and become a sheep, now the journey stops as we become engulfed within the darkness of Satan, and the power of denial and shame then contols us and all that is around us.

” Staying sharp within this journey will help to keep Jesus with you, as he guides you and keeps you from the shadows of Satan and the darkness for that he brings”

” Positive change is good for the soul, as negative change is never good and full of darkness and ugliness”

The Portrait of Mother Nature

Mother nature has so many qualities, her beauty is second to none. Every season brings it’s own flair to each year, but first you need to get out and explore all her true beauty with each step along the journey. The Fall, some may say it’s too cold? But it is the cold that has all the colors of the leaves popping, as we look in awe! While some take to the roads to see all the colors of the leaves changing, in order to see the true colors of the Fall, you need to exit the vehicle, step onto the trail and go explore deep within the woods of Mother Nature. Every season has its own beauty that it brings to us, but for me, the Fall is the most beautiful and comfortable, in order to roam within Mother Nature.

The Winter is the coldest of the seasons and like all the other seasons, it to, brings a beauty of its own, so we can share as we truly see what the beauty brings to us all. That white blanket that covers the Earth, to rejuvinate the landscape for the Spring thaw. When you go walking a trail in the Winter, listen to the crunch of the snow beneath your feet, as a fresh snow blankets the earth from a new storm, that quiet Eery feeling of calm, that fills the air around you. There is nothing like that quiet calm from a fresh snow, which adds even more, to the true beauty of what mother nature brings to us all.

To most, the best is the thaw of Spring and the meaning that, warmer temps are coming, but when you look deeply into the season of Spring, you will clearly see that this season is all about rebirth, as Fall is about hibenating and being dorment through the cold months. When Spring is here, then all the flowers and the leaves come back fresh, as the air turns warmer, as we wake up from our hibenating sleep. Now with the warmer months on the horizon, most will think of vacation, as to them its all about the beach and the surf? But this journey through life holds alot more, than just walking a sandy beach, and listening to the surf slam that sandy beach. Spring has sprung, bringing back once again, all the true beauty of mother nature for us all to enjoy. You will see the limbs of the trees with many buds, that will bring the fresh leaves and fill the trees with new life. The flowers fragerance will brighten up the air all around us, as they come back into bloom for another season. Yes everything will be reborn within the months of Spring, even we as well will be reborn, but only if we want to change and change for the better, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Then there is the season of Summer, this season will bring the heat, yes it will literally heat up the Earth, to which those sandy beaches you like to walk, will become like walking on fire and burn your feet with each step. As the Winter months will freeze the waters for us to go skating on, the Summer will heat up that same water, as now we go swimming, to get relief, from the heat of the Summer months. It is true that all the plant life that becomes reborn in the Spring, can dry up and die, with the scorching heat that Summer brings. The pitchure of this lake was taken in the late summer months, with Fall lurking around the corner. It was late in the day with the sun going down for its nights rest, as the darkness of night to become upon all. The calm of the night sky is coming near, as now the night creatures start to awake, and the days creatures get some rest, for the next days adventures. Time to light the campfire and get lost within the therepy of the hot coals and listen to all the sounds from the night sky. We have become so used to the city lights, that most forget what it is like, within the night sky of mother nature. There is so much to and within the beauty of mother nature, but to actually experience it, you first have to step out of your comfort zone, and step into what mother nature has in store for you.

What is lurking around the corner of mother nature? The only way to find out, is to actually take that step around the corner and truly see, what mother nature has in store for you. Yes you have to be prepared for what may be around the corner, but when you are prepared, there is no better beauty to step into. From the colors of Fall, to the white winter blanket that Winter brings to us all, then the rebirth that takes place in the Spring, giving us back all the beauty that left us in the Fall, then the heat of the Summer as we take our vacations and rejuvinate ourselves from the daily grind. Each season brings many beautiful things to us all, but when we are bitter, we never truly see what the beauty is, of any season and as there are four seasons within a year, there is much beauty to experience, as we get back to truly of who we are, without being bitter, of anything or anyone. This journey will bring many things to us all, as we walk our paths we chose, so if we do not enjoy all the beauty within all the seasons, then before we know it, this journey will come to an end, with alot of us leaving this journey with many regrets, that now we can not get back, because now the journey has stopped, and what lurks on the other side of the journey, we will never know, til we get to that side, which I think it is what most fear the most.

” The beauty of mother nature is all around us, its time to truly see that beauty and stop with all the bitterness”

” There are four beautiful seasons within each year of our journey, you cant just see one without getting through another”

” There is so much lurking within this journey of life, but within all the bitterness you will never be prepared for what lurks around each corner”
