This Holy Week

Desert Landscape

 

This is the week that the journey of Jesus Christ comes to an end, he walked the path of Righteousness and showed all of us just how this path, will give us all the peace and serenity we want. This week leading into Good Friday and into Easter, Jesus suffered, died and rose again for the good of all of us, so we all can be cleansed of our Sins and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the same peace and serenity Jesus had on his path of his journey.

Jesus Christ was the only Son of our Father The Lord God, the one that created all that is around us, including we throughout Mankind. Jesus came to us at a time of turmoil, a time when some wanted all the power and control over the rest of us, a time when greed controlled everything around us, sound familiar? It should cause we are going through it once again, which makes it even more important that we pray for his forgiveness,  to end all the crap that is going on around us, so we all can get to that path of Righteousness, that Jesus showed us and walk that path in peace, as we all become better and stronger moving forward.

These paths we all walk throughout this journey of life, right now shows just how disconnected we are, of not just each other, but all that is around us. We are so engulfed in greed, power and control, that we are walking our paths within the clouds of our judgments, which is turning us into something we truly are not. When things happen to us when we are not truly of who we are, we then try to move forward like nothing happened at all? We not only lose touch with ourselves, bur with all that is around us and when we do this it does nothing but compound even further, all the crap going on around us.

These Terrorists that are creating all this Hate around us, have learned this from somewhere, this is not truly of who they are, Hatred is not within any of us, as we learn it from somewhere? The way we defend ourselves from these Terrorists is not showing Hatred back at them, but standing up to them ( like a Bully) and putting the same Fear they inflict in us, right back into them. When a Terrorist or a Bully has the Fear of God put right back onto them, they then Cower away, like the true Coward they are. I understand these Terrorists want all the power and control over all of us, but I am sorry to say that they can’t have it and it is time we all stand together, look them all square in the eyes and put the Fear of God right back into them, so they will Cower away like the true Cowards they are and we all can get back to walking our paths of this journey in peace and happiness, while we all remember the path of righteousness that Jesus showed us, pray to Jesus during this week of Holiness, asking him to forgive us of our Sins, feeling the love of God within us and sharing it with each other, cause with this love, there is no room for any of this learned Hatred, throughout this journey of life.

 

” Holy week is a special time of year for all of us no matter who you are, as Jesus never discriminated anybody and loved all equally”

” Terrorists are like Bullies, they have learned this Hatred from somewhere and is truly not who they are”

” The path of Righteousness brings us all peace and happiness and is truly who we really are”

” When we all seek the same power, control and greed, this does nothing but teach us just how to hate on each other, instead of sharing the love within us, with each other”

The Take down within reality…

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Along the paths of this journey through life, there are things that do need to be taken down, but when we try to take down each other, now this not only hurts the one that is being taken down, but in the end we all hurt, as the take down then affects us all.

This foot bridge within this picture gets taken down when one wants to cross the stream without getting wet, every Christmas we put up the decorations, then after we take them down to make room for the next holiday decorations, there are many things we put up, that over time we need to take down, to clean or repair from time to time, put up…take down…put up…. take down, seems pretty repetitive, but this is simple for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

What is hurting not only ourselves but all those around us, is the taking down of each other, just so we ourselves can look more important than all that is around us. When one searches out another to try to disrupt their path of their journey, simply means one thing, that the one trying to do the take down, has more hidden issues, than they care to admit to themselves.

All the Drama within the NFL these days with Tom Brady and now Peyton Manning, simply proves more than ever that, when we see others around us having success, we will stop at nothing, to take them down and ruin all their credibility., simply because we are jealous of them. The fact is that we have become so lazy within our own little Worlds, that we don’t want to put in the hard work, be determined to achieve greatness, instead we will take down whoever that is around, just so we can seem at first glance, that we are just as important as the next, so we then become lazy for whatever that may cross our paths.

We have not only become jealous of the Sports Celebrity, we have become jealous of all who is around us and even more so, within this Society of today, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Life is hard enough to learn all of its lessons, we don’t have to make it harder, as we disrespect and take down one another”

” Part of the lesson we learn within our lives, is to treat each other with respect, without any taking down of anything that is around us”

” we all throughout Mankind need to be better at respecting each and only take down the picture frame to clean it”

” The take down isn’t some Wrestling event that everybody is all about me and acting like they are better than the rest”

 

Good decision/bad decision…Hmm!!!

story idea

The decision for Bill Belichek to kick away the ball at the start of overtime in last nights game, totally lies on him to do so and with his track record over the last fifteen years as the Coach of the New England Patriots, who are we to second guess his decision?

These pictures here are of two totally different paths, just like in life you also have different paths in sports to get to where you want to go. with the way the Offense played last night, compared to the way the defense played, clearly was part of the way Bill made his decision and all these theories we are hearing today, totally lie with the sports media, in trying to stir up as much drams as they can, so they can have a job to stir the drama with. Bill has brought four Championships here to new England over his tenure here, why should we stop trusting him now? Even Tom Brady came out and said the defense played better and he is the common denominator in all the different teams that Bill has coached here.

Talk about the media creating drama in sports, there was a report of Peyton Manning using HGH in the year 2011 after his neck surgery, which this report was later recanted when the reporter came out and said he was wrong, but now the seed of drama is planted and a very hard seed to dig up like the weeds in your green grass. Tom Brady came out in total defense of Peyton, as he is going through the same seed of drama with the deflate gate crap and can totally feel what Peyton is going through. This is, what is wrong with our Society of today, here you have two of the best Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and there are some out there through jealousy, that will try to take them down, instead of sitting back and enjoying the show that they are putting on, year after year.

True we here in New England may not of liked the call to kick the ball away and pass up the chance to end the game with the offense scoring a touchdown like the Jets did, but when you sit back and review the game inside the game, you can see clearly why Bill made this decision, as the defense out played the offense in last nights game, it is just that it didn’t work out for the Patriots like in years past and with all the injuries to key players, shows that even the mighty Patriots fall Victim to the bug of an injury ridden season, like all other teams throughout the NFL.

With Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, the Patriots will always be in the talk of which teams will go to the Superbowl, but when key players around Tom fall to the injury bug, makes it that much harder to get there and that much harder a pill to swallow, for all the fans around New England to accept. The legacy of Bill and Tom here in New England is winning, but without all the key supporting players around them makes it that much harder to overcome adversity and keep the legacy of winning alive, I can say I was disappointed at the call also, but when I looked at the game inside the game, I clearly saw the reason why he made that call and totally respected Bill for making the call. #inbillwetrust Let us all here in New England always trust in Bill as his track record speaks for itself.

 

” just as in life, sports has different paths to follow to get to your true destination, hard work and determination shows you the true path to follow”

” Decisions are made everyday in life as well as sports, just that all the decisions made don’t always work in your favor”

” The New England Patriots with Bill and Tom will always be considered a favorite in the NFL, its the right supporting cast around them that keep them one of the favorites”

 

Victim of circumstance

” Victim of anything will take away a big piece of who we are”

 

We all throughout Mankind have been Victimized at some point in our lives and from anything/anyone as we walk our paths along this journey through life. With all the talks of the group ISIS and their sick and twisted ways in which they operate, never once have I heard any talks of the Victims they are creating each and every day but when we become a Victim , we shut our selves down simply because we hurt deeply inside and when we try to move forward, we suppress all the pain and do not communicate anything of the pain, cause we are afraid to admit to anybody of what has happened cause we think all will look at us as weak?

There are many Victims created everyday around us as we speak, could be something simple and trivial, or it could be something very major, to which changes the lives of the Victim drastically, as they try to move forward on their paths of their journey through life. There is a strong chance that the ones creating the Victims, have also been a Victim at some point in their lives? With that said…… Shows just how much this Society is hurting deeply, to which makes this a broken Society in need of a major fix, in a big way. The only true way for a Victim to be better and stronger from their Victimization is, to talk and communicate about it, reach out for a helping hand instead of hiding deep within themselves, sometimes there are things that we need to communicate with someone we trust, so we don’t carry around any unwanted luggage, that drags us down as we walk our paths along this journey through life.

When we watch the news and see tragedies every day, true we may look and feel sad at what happened, but we don’t show enough empathy for the Victims of that tragedy, because we think that it didn’t affect me, so I won’t think about who may be the innocent Victim and the Victim may never communicate of what happened, simply because they don’t want to be looked at as weak. What we all take for granted is, not only do we hurt from being a Victim, but that little Child within us all, hurts even worse than that of the Victim themselves. That Child within us all is affected in ways we never see, cause we don’t acknowledge that Child, we don’t take care of that Child, like we do ourselves and when we don’t take care of that Child, then we never grow to our full potential, which then the end result is we throughout Society as we walk our paths of our journey through life, simply wander in the clouds of our judgements, with no true direction to where we are going.

A Victim is created in a couple different ways, either they are targeted  or they are created by circumstance, from something or someone out of their control. No matter which way the Victim is created, it brings much pain and hurt to the Victim and that Child deep within their core, plus the Victim then becomes someone they truly are not, simply because they are hiding within themselves and have created this fake self that they portray to others, in order to try to escape the real pain and hurt. The only way to truly escape the pain and hurt, is to communicate about it and reach out for help, it takes a stronger person to know how to reach out when they need and when we reach out correctly, then we all can walk our paths along this journey of life peacefully and with a smile instead of a daily frown.

 

” To reach out for help correctly only helps us all become stronger and better moving forward”

” True Communication is key to all of us moving forward, it helps us all stay true to who we are, as we walk this journey through life”

” A Victim is created by another Victim who is hiding their pain and hurt deep within the core of their being”

 

The road to a Championship

Forest

 

The road to any Championship within any sport you may play, are full of unknowns, trials and tribulation. Now I am a New England Patriot fan not just of long standing, but I am what is known as the hometown Homey, with that said…….. I have also lived through the toughest of times when these Patriots lost more than they win, now with these Patriots of the last fifteen years winning more than they lose, I have earned the success this team has given me.

Since Bill Belichek and Tom Brady took the reigns of this franchise, the New England Patriots have become one of the best teams within the history of the National Football League, not too mention the best Quarterback/Coach tandem as well. You had the Steeler’s of the 1970’s, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s that were great dynasties of their time and right now it is the New England Patriots who have become that great dynasty. Unfortunately with success comes the hater’s and in today’s World, the haters are ten times worse than of any other time. You also had the New York Yankees throughout their winning days within Baseball and became the most hated team within their sport, it happens because when a team gets so dominant and beats regularly other teams, it’s the fans that bring out this hatred of the team that their team can not beat.

” a team can only be a Champion when they step up to the plate and beat a true Champion with regularity”

I get the fact that the fans want to play and pick these fantasy teams to compete with each other, but these fantasy games have completely ruined all sports and completely took away any integrity that these sports had.  ” Let the real players stand up and play the game they love to play”. These fantasy teams that the fans pick, are just that fantasy. They are not real teams and from what I see all the other owner’s throughout the NFL, want these fantasy teams to make it look like their teams are doing okay? Roger Goodell the Commissioner of the NFL, is in power from the board of directors of the league and who are these directors? All the owners of all 32 teams in the NFL. When it comes to the New England Patriots, all the other Owners are the ones that have hated on this team the most, simply because they have made their teams look completely silly throughout all that watch the NFL. What I say to these Owners is, time to step up to the plate and beat a real Champion (fair and square) that the Patriots have become, so your teams can have a share of what being a Champion truly feels like.

It is not about the Patriots laying down so other teams can catch up to the curve, it is all about the other teams of the NFL catching up to the Patriots on the field fair and square. These Patriots throughout their history in the NFL have seen times where they lose more than they win, they didn’t whine and cry like the teams of today, no!! They just stepped up to the plate and with much hard work, became one of the best Franchises in the history of the NFL, it’s time the other teams follow the path of these Patriots, so maybe one day they to can become a True Champion.

” A True Champion doesn’t just happen, first there comes dedication, hard work and perseverance”

” instead of whining and crying and creating hate of a team, step up to the plate to beat a true champion and become the champion”

” Hard work is what defines Tom Brady and the number one reason why he has been so good for so long”

 

The Boston Sports theme……….

Today in the Boston sports scene this day of April 15th 2015, had two huge stories happen, pretty much at almost the same time. Arron Hernandez was convicted of murder in the 1st degree and Peter Chiarelli the general manager of the Boston Bruins was fired from the team.

Arron Hernandez was a gifted athlete and could excel in the sport of football and as we all seen from him on the field, his actions proved he was gifted and could play, the team he played for also seen his gift and awarded him 40 million to play for them, Arron came from nothing and transformed into a very wealthy Individual, who had the world in the palm of his hands and now all has been taken from him, with zero to show for his gift and talent.

The guilty verdict of Arron Hernandez, when you look deeply into the reality of the situation, proves just how troubled a lot of Individuals are within this Society we all live. When you look deeply into Arron’s eyes at the time the verdict was read, you can clearly see he has issues which he buried his true feelings and emotions, as well as his true empathy of himself and those around him. Arron was with out a doubt, living a double life while he was playing professional football.

We all within this Society are guilty of burying our true self’s and our empathy of ourselves and others around us, but this verdict of Hernandez and others like him, only takes it to the next level. When harm comes to us and we don’t acknowledge the harm correctly, we then look to other ways, in order to relieve ourselves of this harm, this includes hiding who we truly are and hiding our true feelings and emotions, which we then become clouded in our judgements and make stupid decisions, without truly thinking of the ramifications of our actions. True Arron received what he deserved, but if he addressed his issues before the pain of the issues became so great, where he did whatever he needed to make the pain go away, then he may not be in the situation he is now and just maybe, he could of lived a very good and plush lifestyle, with the big money he was awarded, from the team he played professional football for. Let this be a wake up call for all of us throughout Society, do we want to go down the same path as Arron Hernandez, or do we want to correctly fix our issues, so we can walk a path along our journey of life that brings us peace and much happiness throughout our lives?

The Boston Bruins has been my favorite hockey team throughout my life, I understand the game of hockey inside and out, the decision to relieve Peter Chiarelli the general manager of his duties, was the correct one by the Bruins, as Peter did nothing to make this team better this season and give coach Claude the necessary tools to do his job better. Peter also subtracted players who were the identity and chemistry of this team without replacing them, when you subtract quality from anything and not add back anything, eventually you end up with zero with nothing to show. I understand to make a decision to release someone of their duties is very hard at any level, with that said my respect for Cam Neely just grew bigger than it was. This decision was the right one to make, so the Bruins can move forward to be better and get back at playing the game of hockey, so they can be successful at bringing the Stanly cup back to the City of Boston, for the organization and fans to enjoy.

” I bleed black and gold, the true colors of a great organization of the Boston Bruins”

” to wear the spoked B on your hockey jersey, is that of pride and passion for a sport of which you love”

” Arron Hernandez was a gifted and talented football player, now with his clouded judgements and bad decisions, will have these talents rot in a jail cell the rest of his life”
