The dark of the light, with the light of the dark

Seriously think about this!!! We of this Society have wandered away from any kind of thinking about anything, we say we think about things whatever those things are? But because of the no more thinking part, we have lost all sense of any of the true common sense that is within all of us. We have become like puppets to an almighty puppeteer, when the master speaks we listen and when the master pulls our strings, we go in the direction of the pull, without any kind of a resistance. Nobody wants to lead, as all we want to do is follow, no matter of the direction we may go. We need more trail Blazer’s like those societies of the past, without them then all our futures look bleek and boring, with no excitement on the horizon.

In order to truly see the light, there is darkness to pass through, just as the light will never be constant,    for there is always a darkness that passes by, so we can come to appreciate all things, without focusing too much on one thing, which will help us become more well rounded as we walk our paths, through this ever changing journey through life. Through the light there will always be darkness, as change will never leave us, which makes it that much more important to, being able to adapt to everything equally and without giving up, so we never become a puppet and just follow, so instead we than become the trail blazer, like Jesus did when he came and walked his journey here with us.

It takes darkness so we can truly see the light, so we than can truly appreciate all that we do with every step of this journey. Even like within this picture, you have a dead tree trunk, with a flower growing out of it? There is beauty all around us, you just have to truly look deeply in everything, without simply glancing or skimming over the top and becoming superficial of everything around you. Our leader’s today within the walls of Washington DC and while they get so wrapped up within the ” Washington Power Game”, have totally lost sight of true reality and have become a puppet to their own cause, without thinking of the bigger picture, or even becoming a trailblazer, to truly lead as they should be doing, when they signed up, for the office they hold.

True these flowers may not be the most fragrant, or the most picturesque?  But these flowers in their environment and where they are, makes everything around them shine in the light, brighter then anything, this is the sign of a true leader, someone who gets the job done, someone who never looks for recognition, someone who shines no matter of how dark the light may be, someone no matter of the change, adapts to the change and moves forward better and stronger, so they can keep the brightness of the light, no matter of how dark the darkness may become. These leader’s are out there, just that within today’s society and all the darkness with all the ugliness, makes for it very hard to truly see anything, which shows of how important it is, to let the light shine as bright as it can, so the darkness doesn’t seem as dark as it truly is. The light of the dark is always there, so to truly see the light, you need to look past the dark and not focus on the dark, as to helping the darkness never look as dark as it truly is.

 

” Where there is darkness there will be light, just like with faith there will always be hope”

” Cut the strings of the puppet, to truly become the person that you truly are”

” there is always true beauty all around us, we just have to see past the dark to truly see the light”

” Everything we may see has a beauty of it’s own, just as with the darkness, there will always be the light”

A little Empathy of each other goes a long way………

” Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one”

*** Colossians 4:6 ***

 

 

Okay time for my little buddy to make another appearance once again. For those who don’t know, this is little eight year old Martin Richards, he was taken from this Earth by two deranged Individuals, that decided to bring tragedy to the Boston marathon, as they placed two bombs, with one at the finish line, right beside this innocent young boy. This sign he holds are his words and shows just how special this young man was, with what could of been a great life cut short.

Within this society we all walk our journey’s, there is way too much ugliness, drama and hatred of each other. A lot of it simply comes from the way we not only treat each other, but the way we speak to each other, just drive down the road and you will hear a whole different vocabulary than what you care to listen to. Some will be nice to your face when you are around, then when you turn your back, forget the niceness and out comes the slander.  people of today want nothing more than to see others fail, make mistakes, or even fall and become hurt………… as they totally forget that they themselves have gone through the same, just that they don’t want to admit to their flaws at all.

Look no further than our so called leaders within the walls of Washington DC. They not only back stab each other, but they back stab the ones who put them into office as well. Now that we actually have a President that is working for the people that put him there, those on the left will do and say anything, to denounce everything he does, the people that the President tries to put around himself, so he can do an even better job than what he is doing now, have been scrutinized, ridiculed and have had lies put in their mouths, by those on the left, who will stop at nothing, to bring down a seated President. Those on the left won’t even call our President a President, simply because they are so far in denial. that they have lost all sense of what true reality is. We can’t even get a Supreme Court Justice confirmed, without those on the left, doing anything they can, to stall and delay, the conformation, only to better suit themselves, instead of the good of this great country of America. In Washington DC it is all about playing the game of power, instead of actually doing the job, for which they were voted in to do. It is time for each of us Americans, at the mid term elections, to really send a message to those on the left and anyone else, that is so far in denial, of what true reality is, as they are now on the outside looking in.

We of this society need to do a better job at showing true empathy and love of each other, before it becomes lost forever? Or even worse, more of us Humans become victims of a senseless tragedy, as did Martin Richards, on such an ugly day. It is just sad that we rally together when we truly need to heal and become better along this journey, but yet 95% of the time, we don’t even acknowledge each other, let alone show any kind of love or empathy, which happens to be feelings, deep within each of us. It all starts at the top, with our so called Leaders, these are the ones that need to not only work together, but coincide in their environment, so as to not only make this country better and stronger, but make the lives of all Americans better and stronger as well. Plus all those that are looked at as role models within the sporting world, they need to simply shut up and play the sport, that they get big dollars to play, instead of opening their mouths and spewing their hateful opinions, of an elected official, for whom they don’t care for and even further, when you use the sport you play and receive big dollars playing, for a platform to protest, I challenge you to take some of your big dollars to the community you live and put your money where your mouth, so you can make a difference, instead of being nothing but a pain in the Ass, with your uncalled for protests, taking away from the sport you play.

 

” No more hurting people……………peace”

*** Martin Richards***

” The easiest thing we do but we make it the hardest, is quite simply the way we chat with one another”

” Instead of looking at one another with hateful eyes, let’s try looking and seeing the good within all those around us”

” Good will always win over evil, just that we as a society are too consumed with all the evil around us, that we can’t see clearly through the clouds of our judgments”

 

 

 

 

 

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To Radicalize and Socialism is not truly of who we are…….

” As many as are led by the spirit of God, these are sons of God”

Romans 8:14

 

” God is at work, even in the midst of the problems, pessimism and frustrations of our day, he alone is sovereign and that is why we can trust him, even when the way seems dark”

Habakkuk 1:5

 

While we walk through this journey of life, we walk our paths within a Society of many. Each Society over time is made up of all walks of life, no matter of who you are or, whatever religion, gender, or ideological thoughts you have, not even of whatever radical thoughts you may have, the problem with today’s society is, we are all walking within the clouds of our judgments, we all think in our own minds that, our way is the only way, only because we have lost the faith in Jesus Christ, which means that we have lost the true direction to the path of righteousness, for which Jesus had showed us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

With some they may think they are above the law and operate in a reckless abandon kind of way, they cheat, steal, become very controlling and will abuse anybody that gets in their way. Some because they are so lost within themselves, will take complete advantage of, the weak minded and the young, so they can brainwash them to their sick and twisted ideologies and train them to not only be someone for who they truly are not, but have them do things that bring great harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, simply because they know no better. All Religions are religions of peace, but those in the Muslim religion who are very radical, have twisted around the words in the Koran,  to suffice their sick and twisted ideologies.  Just like all who walk through this society in this journey of life, you have your good as well as the bad, just that we have become so fixated on the bad, makes it only seem as if the bad is winning in this crucial fight throughout mankind. We the people of this society have created all this hatred and ugliness around us and we the people, can simply uncreate it as well, all we have to do is truly believe and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, to guide us to the path of righteousness, where we all can walk this journey in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

With all the Terrorist acts that are happening Worldwide, you can clearly see that there are many who simply are not truly of who they are, then the talks of this thing called ” Radicalization”, shows of just how some want to totally have the power and control over the rest of us. Radicalization is nothing but a few picking out those who are either weak minded or young, to totally brainwash them, so they than can carry out their sick and twisted ideologies and bring much harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, while through fear, they try to control everything around them. Back in the day to those who grew up through the 60’s, when they go against their up bringing, they were also known to be a Rebel and called a Radical of their time. Within today’s society and this Radicalization process, they have total taken this word and transformed it leaps and bounds, beyond what it truly means, The days of yesteryear and the times of today, are two totally different times, all the words and the ideologies, may be the same, it is just how they are translated within today’s society, which is nothing but creating more drama, hate and ugliness.

We all want to put our own stamp within the society for which we walk our journey in, but the problem then lies with the way we actually place the stamp within society. every society that has walked this journey through life, have their similarities to each other, true we can make improvements from one to another, but when we become too arrogant to realize that there have been mistakes made in past societies and we still repeat the process, shows of just how dumb we really are………. The solution is simple, it is okay to look back in the history of other societies, so we can fix what we need to fix properly, so we all than can move forward in our society, to not only be better and stronger, but walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve and with the total faith in Jesus Christ, we than can have the hope to do it with confidence in ourselves, as we truly feel the love of Jesus within our souls and share that love with each other.

 

” To radicalize is to be brainwashed, which in essence you are now a part of the “cult” of the dark side, known as the evil side”

” Socialism never works, just look at the country of Venezuela and all it’s ugliness”

” Words come to us in our minds first, then we speak the words with our mouths, somewhere in between we then put our own spin on the spoken word”

” The stamp of life we all so want to leave within the society we walk, the problem lies with how we actually go about placing that stamp”

 

 

 

 

The strong do survive, while the weak simply just exist…………..

” We are told Lord that it is a privilege to suffer on your behalf, may you receive glory in every season of my life, whether I am enjoying success or enduring sorrow”

Philippians 1:29

 

The New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump are kind of like this tree on a little Island, all by their selves, simply because they are alone with all their successes, with all around them doing nothing but hate on them, only because they themselves are too lazy to even try to achieve what they have. It is so much easier to just give up and not even try to achieve greatness, than actually putting in a hard days work, so not only to feel good of yourself, but you as well can achieve greatness, as do the New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump.

Success doesn’t grow on tree’s, you just do not wake up one day and ” Poof”…….. You are successful with piles of money, true success comes from very hard work and very hard practice, to make the the work turn into success. With hard work comes a lot of blood, sweat and tears and without them, your not truly working hard, not too mention with the hard work also comes great pain and pain that is, physical in nature, as well as a deep psychological pain that is deep within our souls. Nobody will actually welcome any kind of pain, which is why some will try to take the easy way out and hate on those that are successful, to try to make themselves seem better and more powerful than the ones, who actually have put in the hard work and practice, to be truly great at who they have become.

I can remember growing up as a young child and watching the New England Patriots, this was a team that, unlike today where they win more than they lose, the team back then lost more than they won, they had some great Individual player’s, but never actually had the team play great together, much like they do today, a huge part of that is the great culture that the coach has brought to the team, for the last twenty years. True Bill Belichek is responsible for this culture, but Tom Brady and his strong work ethnic, has become a staple of the team for the nineteen years he has been Quarterback of the team. Tom is forty one going into this season, he continues to defy Father time, but you can clearly see that, he works very hard each and every day, so he can stay on top of his game and with the hard work, comes all the success he has had through his career, But even with all Tom’s hard work, there is a small percentage of others that will stop at nothing to hate on him, simply because they themselves are too arrogant and lazy, to actually work as hard as Tom works each and every day.  Let the ” Patriot way” be a lesson to us all, when you work hard and have a great culture in which to learn, than just maybe all of us can achieve greatness, as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

President Donald Trump may be very wealthy, but that wealth didn’t just appear on his lap, he had to work hard at earning each and every penny of that wealth. Now some may make a ton of excuses, as to why they are not wealthy like him? but the bottom line is, they are more lazier than the President and do not want to put the work in. Jealousy will get you no where, as through jealousy only comes hate for all those around you. President Trump said before he won the election, that he would drain the swamp, he is doing just what he said, as well as a lot more. The swamp is really all the corruption within the walls of our Government here in America and if you are, as passionate as I in the world of politics, you can clearly see all the corruption, within the walls of Washington D.C. For which President Trump stands in the ocean alone, among a body of water full of sharks and he is doing a great job at fending them all off. Those on the left may hate on him more than those on the right, but they only hate on him, simply because he is making them look bad with his hard work, while they sit on there hands and continue their lazy ways of doing nothing, or keeping their campaign promises.

When we all work hard together, then yes we can make this society better and stronger, then societies of the past. Greatness never came from any kind of hatred, as hatred will only divide and separate, all that is around us. Hatred is the lazy mans way to try to move forward on their paths, while hard work will always bring you to true greatness, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger, while we all simply just get along in this society of divide, instead of attacking one another and achieving nothing, leaving us all with nothing  as well.

 

” A strong work ethnic will bring us to greatness, while the weak do nothing making them weaker moving forward”

” True greatness breeds strength, joy and happiness with success for all from the fruits of their labor”

” Hard work never comes easy, but it is always better than the alternative.

” The hard work will unite, without it we then will be divided”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Beauty of the Trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

All trails are unique to each other, each trail tells a story if you look deeply into them and when you truly listen to them, then you shall see the true beauty of the trail. Some may hike a trail to the summit of the mountain, just to reach the summit, take a ” Selfie” on the summit, then post to their social media platforms, showing others of their hike. This is fine, but………. But your missing the big picture and not truly listening to what the trail is saying to you.

The mountain trails have a lot to say if you really listen to them as you trek along the trails of the mountains. From the mountain streams you cross, to all the different plant life and the animals all around you, some of what you may never see  along the normal 9 to 5 of the usual path through the journey of life. We become so fast paced within our regular daily events, that we never take the time to actually look deeply into what we see, just as a long the trail of the mountains, when we just hike too post to our social media platforms, we totally miss out on all the true beauty that is around us along the trail.

Some may not have the desire to hike a mountain, or may look at it as too much work to climb to the summit? That is fine there are plenty of Nature trails that are easier and still offer you the chance to get outdoors, to truly enjoy ” The beauty of the trail”. Some of the mountain trails can and will show you of just how out of shape you are, these trails will totally test your physical ability, as well as your mental structure, but the reward of the beautiful view at the summit, will have you in awe of the trail you just hiked, plus when you truly looked deeply at all that was around you as you hiked the trail, now you can totally feel the peace and serenity that is within you, with a huge feeling of accomplishment.

The beauty of the trail will captivate you, when you truly listen to what the trail is saying to you, it will have you think less of the work of reaching the summit and think more of taking in the true beauty all around you. The problem within this Society, especially within the big cities, is that we never take the time to enjoy anything around us, let alone………….taking in the true beauty of all that is around us. We get so caught up in all the hatred and ugliness of today, that we then forget of who we truly are, we forget there is more to this journey of life than what we see everyday, it is also true that we get so consumed within the everyday life, that we then become someone we are not, whether of our own doing, or of the doing from someone around us? Which then we either become a Victim or help create other Victims of today and through all this we objectify others around us, instead of looking deeply into them, to see that………..yes we are are equal to each other, just unique in our own way. The true empathy and love is within us all deep within our souls, just that we bury it so deep within, that we can not truly feel it as we should, so we than can spread it among each other, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

The beauty of the trail can and will have us look deeper into what is around us, not just too see the beauty on the trail, but to see all the beauty around us, whether we are on the trail, or walking our paths of this journey. The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you into, being true to who you are, while you look deeply into all that is around you, while it brings you closer to reality, instead of further away from reality, as walking the streets of society will do. We all walk a path through this journey of life, let’s do it correctly so we than can experience true peace and happiness always.

 

” The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you back to being of truly who you are”

” Just as we are unique to each other, so are the mountain trails, full of true beauty always”

” The mountain trail are alive and will talk to you if you look deeply into all that is around them”

” Life within the society can change you into being someone you truly are not, as life on the trail will bring you back to being who you truly are”

 

 

 

 

 

With the right focus, comes true perspective

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Perspective and focus go hand in hand, one without the other will have you walk aimlessly throughout this journey of life, without being able to truly find your true purpose of this journey. Just as in this picture, when you focus on one thing, the rest become cloudy and out of focus, when you focus on what’s down the road, then what’s in the foreground becomes cloudy and out of focus and vice versa. As much as we would like to have it all, you clearly can not, we can achieve many things throughout this journey, but to have it all now and right before us at this time, will just never happen all at once. Everything in moderation, so we can set the proper goals for ourselves, then as we achieve these goals, we than can move forward, not just onto the next goal, but move forward full of confidence, that helps us feel good deep within our souls for a journey well walked.

To have a clear perspective and be in focus as we walk this journey through life, is kind of like walking on a balance beam, where there is this narrow beam that you need to walk across, while you not only put one foot in front of the other, but you focus on what is in front of you, so you don’t fall off the beam. When your perspective doesn’t match up to your focus, now there is a whole host of issues that can come from that, which then forces you to become out of focus for what you need, as you trip and fall over your own feet, trying to put them one step at a time in front of you. Being out of focus and losing perspective of what is important to you, not only will have you walking through the clouds of your judgments, but will also have you become someone for who you truly are not, then you can lose sight of the true journey of the path you walk, throughout this thing called life.

When taking a picture with a camera, there is a process to follow before you actually snap the button to take the picture. You want to make sure that everything is in focus, so the perspective of the picture comes out as crystal clear as you can make it. The theory is so much the same as we walk our paths through this journey of life. It is not just the putting the one foot in front of the other, you first have to focus on where your putting that foot to take the step and each step moving forward, so we then don’t trip and fall disrupting us from walking further. It is totally okay to stop from time to time, so you can look further down the path of your perspective, so you than can keep in focus of what is right in front of you, you don’t need to rush as there is no time limit along this journey of life, simply because if you walk your path out of focus, then you will miss a lot of great stuff, that can make you better and stronger moving forward.

When you don’t take the time to focus as you walk your path of this journey, you will never find the true perspective of the journey. Within this Society and especially within all the big cities, there are so many walking aimlessly, that they clearly are out of focus within the path that they walk. The big cities are so fast paced it makes it very difficult to truly look deeply into what you see, as those that live out of the cities in a more relaxed setting, actually can see more clearly along their path, that is simply because they take the time to focus on what is in front of them as they take each step, which then gives them a better perspective of this journey through life. This journey is really not that difficult when you do it correctly, stay in focus of where you are going, so then the perspective of the journey will help you become better and stronger as you walk your path. Now I get the fact that some of our issues that come to us, are out of our control and are forced on to us from another, but when we stay in focus and keep the perspective of what is in front of us, then we can fix what we need to fix, to move forward along the journey and not move backwards, out of focus with no perspective. With good focus and keeping perspective along our paths of this journey, we now can walk with confidence, as peace and happiness surround us with each step, of a journey well walked.

 

” Focused and perspective go hand in hand, when you lose perspective you then become out of focus moving forward”

” Having good balance not just in sports but in life, will, help keep your perspective and focus to keep moving forward”

” We all need to take better pictures to keep us in focus of the perspective moving forward to be better and stronger in all we do”

” Taking the time to look deeply into what you see, will help greatly putting one foot in front of the other, to have good focus with a perspective moving forward throughout the journey”
