The days of yesteryear to the days of today……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

From the days of before vehicles, to the days of when this truck was in it’s prime, to even yet……..the days of today with all the technology, there has been so much that has changed through the years, but the one thing that has stayed true and constant over that time is, the simple fact of the hard work it took to get to where we are within today’s society. Hard work is the back bone for everything throughout this journey of life, without the hard work, then the things we do or the things we accumulate, may be less of, only because through the hard work, we than can afford to do as we like, afford to accumulate what we need to go out, explore and relax when we need to.

Real honest to goodness hard work is what built this country and turned it into a very prosperous country, for us all today. What scares me today is, we have a generation that does not understand the concept of hard work, then there are some of the far left elected officials promising them free stuff, just to try to get their votes? Free stuff sounds good yes………. but, who do you think pays for that free stuff? You guessed it, the ones who are working hard, so they can have nice things and be able to be free to roam and explore the beauty of this great country.

Hard work isn’t cheap, it will cost us our blood, sweat and tears at times, but in the end the reward is more than worth it. The reward with it’s pay back, puts more than a smile on your face, it gives you the confidence to move forward, on the path you chose through this journey of life. The reward will also make you feel great of yourself, as then you will want to work harder, to achieve higher goals within life, the trick is to set the goals a bit lower, then as you achieve the goals, then keep setting more goals, so as you are now climbing the ladder of life and working your way towards the path of righteousness, for which Jesus guided us to, when he came and walked his journey here with us.

Within this society of technology today, everything comes with a hefty price tag, the technology is supposed to make our lives easier? But really it makes us poorer and working even harder to achieve all the latest and greatest gadgets, you see the price tag on all these gadgets, well then how can one promise you free stuff, when the price tag says otherwise? Everything comes with a price and someone, somewhere, has to pay that hefty price tag. Now we all work our 9 to 5’s within this journey, we start at the bottom and work our way up the professional ladder, as we step on the rungs of the ladder, each rung is a goal we set, then as we achieve each goal, we then feel better and better of ourselves and as we move up, we get rewarded as well, which then we accumulate our worthy possessions, whatever they may be? We all accumulate different things as our likes are different, but as you keep moving up the rungs of the ladder, you then may try new things or simply stay with the things that make you feel great and keep moving forward better and stronger.

This journey of life is really not that hard, true the paths we chose may have us work hard to make the path better with each step, but if we walk this journey correctly and put in the hard work, we will be rewarded for the work. Sometimes the reward takes time and we have to learn to be patient, but patience is a virtue and with patients, ” good things come to those who are patient”. When you wait for one to give you free stuff as they promise so they can get your vote, you just may be waiting a lot longer than you may like, as there is nothing for free and somebody, somewhere has to pay for that stuff, so it will definitely be well worth your time, to put in the hard work now, so the rewards will come and you than can reap the benefits of those rewards in the future. Not too mention the feeling deep within yourself, when the confidence of yourself explodes within you and you realize you can do anything you want, when you set your mind to it. Plus it is not fair to the one that has worked hard for all he has, feels great deep within and now has to pay for the one who is lazy, does not want to work and receives all the free stuff from the hard workers within this society, this is what Socialism is and all we have to do is, look at the countries that have tried it and are now failing from it today. If only we all today, including the younger generation worked hard now, to receive the rewards later, we will see this society turn around for the better, Respect and Dignity come back to us all, instead of all this ugliness, hatred and corruption we see today. We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we do it correctly and with hard work, the rewards will be great and our confidence in ourselves, will be stronger than any force throughout this journey.

 

” Good honest hard work is the back bone to us all, to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Never be afraid of hard work, as the rewards will give you great confidence moving forward”

” Technology is suppose to make our lives easier and better, but instead it has made us all lazy and inadequate”

” There is no such thing as free stuff, as somebody somewhere has to pay for that stuff”

The quiet majestic beauty of America

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The symbol of America, the same America I have grown up in, the powerful big bird known as the American Bald Eagle. The Eagle soars the open sky and glides through the thermals with ease, it is a quiet bird that will circle it’s prey, until the right moment when it makes it’s move and pounces with authority, the Eagle is a beautiful bird that is also a very strong bird, that can take care of itself, but most of the time you will find it high above in the tree tops, nestled into it’s spot, just taking in all that is around it and over looking everything below.

America will never be taken over by anything outside of it’s territory, only it will be taken over from those within and it is happening now right in front of us, the time is now for all us true Americans to stand up and look fear in the eye, look the enemy in the eye, then stare the look of fear right back into the enemy, until they whither away as they came to us in the first place. The Eagle is looking down on to all this ugliness and hatred we in this society have been bringing to one another, The Eagle is also buying it’s time….. for the right time to swoop down to show us just how powerful that America is.

I agree that to run a country like America, it takes a good Democracy, but when there is one party known as the Democrats and being that they are so far in denial, while losing all sight of true reality, not only makes for a broken Democracy, but also makes for a broken society as well. These Democrats right now are such Hypocrites, that to them it is okay to say certain things, but if another says those same things, now you are wrong as they are correct always. This political correct society for which we are all living this present day is doing nothing but make us all weak, it is okay for some to attack another, but when they turn it back around, now you just committed a cardinal sin? The entire Democratic party is what’s wrong within this society today, as they are holding us all back and keeping us from being stronger and better moving forward.

As these Democrats keep spreading their lies to us all, I have one thing to say to them all, ” the more you keep saying your lies, the more your lies will become reality within your own heads”. This quote goes true to the rest of us as well, as we can sell ourselves anything, if we keep saying it long enough. When you keep repeating the same lie over and over, is all the proof you need that, yes you are within the walls of denial and the power of the Denial’s grip, has grabbed you very tightly. While in the tight grip of denial, you can not see clearly through the clouds of your judgments, which then has you judging everything around you, without truly understanding of what you are judging.

The American Bald Eagle is the symbol of America, with this as our symbol, shows just how strong America is, I think the silent majority have been sitting silent for too long, as the time is now to stand up and be counted, stand up as the Eagle circles it’s prey, then swoop in and take back control that has been lost from those who think that they have control over all, there isn’t anybody that controls everything, just that some think they may………… I have a news flash for you, nobody really controls anybody, as when you are in denial, the only control is the denial controlling everything for whom you truly are.

Thank you Mr. Eagle for sitting high above and protecting me from those who may be coming to harm me, Thank you for showing your strength, so I can try to walk my path of this journey, just how you have done, to be better and stronger moving forward. This Eagle is not just strong and majestic, but it is also confident in it’s actions, as this is something we all need to be as well, we need to be more confident in not just ourselves, but with each other, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and serenity, as Jesus Christ showed us, when he walked his journey here with us.

 

” The Eagle has landed, watching over us showing that it is truly the strength of America”

” When you keep spewing your lies day after day, eventually those lies become reality within your own little mind”

” Denial is a strong force within us all and it will take control of your every fiber, if you truly let it”

” Think about it for a min……………. The Eagle so high above watching over us, just as Jesus watches over us, Hmmmmm see the similarity”

 

 

A Society of zero Accountability equals a Society down a slippery slope……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Accountability first and for most starts with each one of us holding ourselves accountable for our own actions, before we can even think of holding each other accountable. Right now within this society there is way too much finger pointing and not enough holding ourselves accountable for our own actions. Yes it is very true that because we are Human, we do make mistakes from time to time, but when we do not hold ourselves accountable for those mistakes, then the mistakes get bigger, instead of correcting them and keeping them at a minimum. When we do not own up to our mistakes and point the finger towards another, then the mistakes will compound, not only turning them into something bigger than they have to be, but then the pain from the mistakes will hurt us all deeply, which then keeps us from the solution of being held accountable for our actions and keeping the pain from truly hurting us very deeply.

This picture was once a very vibrant slate quarry, that produced a huge amount of slate, back within the 1800’s, now I get the fact that there is always change that will come into our lives, but when change comes to an industry so vibrant for some other that just may not fill the void, then why change that? Now this quarry is sitting dormant for all these years, with all the fresh growth of Mother Nature all around it, covering what was once open and full of life. Just maybe there are a lot of hidden truths hidden deep within all the fresh growths, just maybe that they to back then went through their non accountability days and now look at what has happened? It seems funny that we all think we have the solutions for everything, but yet look at all the ugliness, the hatred and the crap that is all around us everyday, with none of us truly taking any accountability for our own actions.

There are some who are making it their mission to strip us of all the past, but seriously you need to look back at what was, in order to move forward better and stronger, you learn from your mistakes to be better, well the same goes from one society to another and when you learn from the mistakes of an earlier society, than just maybe a lot of this ugliness and hatred will go away? We the people of this society are the biggest problem within this society and when we do not hold ourselves accountable for our own actions, it then snowballs to the rest of us within this society and becomes bigger than it has to be.

You than have some that will take it upon themselves to control everything around them and will do anything for that control. They do things to others they know is wrong, but will rationalize away the accountability of their actions, just so they can seem to themselves as the most powerful over all? Meanwhile the ones that they take control of, have now become a victim of their control and with that victimization comes, a very deep pain and hurt, which the person in control who takes no responsibility or accountability of their actions, keeps doing as they are only because they think they are doing nothing wrong, then the powers of denial take over and when denial comes into play, then any responsibility and accountability become lost deep within the souls of us all.

This society is so driven to have all the power of each other, that all the responsibility and the accountability are lost deep within our souls and when you look deeply into each others eyes, you will clearly see that the denial has taken over, leaving us all deep within trying to escape the power of the denial. When denial has it’s grasp on us so tightly, we then lose sight of all true reality, we will never admit to this fact only because we do not want to admit to our faults, this is exactly why we are in a this broken society of, no responsibility and no accountability. Yes there is a way out of this and it will take each one of us being on the same page, we need to get over our own arrogance and truly look deep within our hearts and souls, find that the love of Jesus Christ is always there, just that we have never acknowledged his love. When we acknowledge his love and our hearts and souls are full of it, we then feel this warmth within us, that we than share with each other. It is a lot easier to share this love, than to share all the hatred and the ugliness we have been sharing. With the love of Jesus Christ warming our hearts and souls, we will then find that true peace we have always been looking for. True peace is never within the world of no responsibility or accountability, the only thing that comes from that world is the pain and hurt that hurts us so deeply.

Life within this society could be a whole lot easier if only we all did it correctly, instead of trying to control everything and everybody we can. We are all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ, the only thing different is that we are all unique to each other. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of people in this society that keep playing the race card? This is one of the uniqueness we bring to each other, but some will try to step on the toes of another, just so they can come across as more powerful than another? We need to stop trying to attack one another and start seeing each other as Jesus see’s us and that is, we are more equal than we think, when we do this we will find that the love of Jesus Christ will flow like water, out of each one of us, as we all move forward and walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Responsibility and accountability goes hand and hand with each other, like peas in a pod”

” Accountability starts with ourselves then bleeds to each other within this society”

” To rationalize and deny, is what leads to no responsibility or accountability and all the ugliness and hatred around us”

” Power and control when achieved in the wrong way, will always come with much pain and hurt to us all”

 

A Broken Society

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Right now as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we are all part of this broken society. This tree has become broken as well, but by the looks of it may have been caused by a lighting, it is amazing though of how it fell and like, it stuck out it’s long arm, to break it’s fall, so as not too get hurt to badly. Now as the limb has snapped off this tree, true that will be the demise of the tree, it will be not repaired, to live on as healthy and strong, as it nonce did, but this society unlike the tree can be repaired and live on better and stronger, as it would take the biggest team victory, in the history of all team sports.

This society today is so divided and really for no good reason, as we are all so into ourselves, that we can not see clearly enough to see the divide. It pretty much starts with the fact of the two Political parties, one hand you have the Republicans and the other hand you have the Democrats, which whether you are an elected official or just an ordinary Joe of either party, we all think our views are the way to go and we will never come together to simply chat of these views to see really which view is best and which is just a crock of crap. not only are we all full of ourselves, in order to make out that our views are better, we will ram our views down each others throats, while saying the hell with your view it simply does not count. Then there is the denial factor, as through this denial, we not only have these warped sense of views, but we will not only “not listen” to anybody else, only because our lies have become truths to even ourselves.

All this divide thing has started many years ago, but most recently with the regrets and the not excepting of an Individual winning the election of the most highest office on the land, then the disrespect of the symbol of this country, by Individuals being paid big money to play a simple sport, to most recently a member of our country’s world cup soccer team showing disrespect of that symbol as well, then there are those out there protesting and as they protest, they have zero clue of what they are protesting, except the fact that others are out there with the same zero clue. Everybody wants their five min. of fame, but to go out and protest just to simply be out there with no clue of why, is no way to achieve that fame, as it will only make you look stupid to the rest of us, as we laugh to no end at you.

There are these three Freshman Congress woman, which I have no clue of how they got voted into office in the first place, maybe people of their district were paid to vote that way? But anyways these woman have done nothing but bring even more divide to the rest of the walls of Washington DC as well as the rest of us in this country. There are also some members of the house and senate that have been there way too long and they have gone over to the dark side, in other words they have gone to the far left side of the liberal agenda, to the point that they have lost all sight of true reality. These so called officials within Washington DC are so blinded by their own stupidity and lies, that they can not even listen to the voice of reason, let alone anybody’s else’s voice of who may be around them.

Have you ever walked the streets of a big city lately? Everybody has their heads buried so deep into their phones, it amazes me that they even have a clue of where they are going, let alone pay any attention of who else is around them, nobody gives each other the time of day anymore, as we have become a society of arrogance as well as a society of divide. With all this division we all want…..want…….want……., but seriously……. we all can not get what we want, unless we actually give to get the want. Forest Gump said it best, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are getting”, this journey through life is very similar and when you just simply be who you are, even then you do not know what you are getting with each step of your path.

 

” When something gets broken you first decide if it can be fixed, then you work on the fix of that something”

” A divided society is a broken society, leading to everybody not being on the same page Nor will we bend over backwards for each other”

” Two political party’s are not in place just to argue and bicker with each other, they are there to keep ourselves honest not only with ourselves, but with each other”

Standing Alone……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Within this society of today and with the all the social media platforms, most may think having the most followers might make you better than the rest? Just because you get a lot of likes of your status on a platform really does not mean, others care who you are, what people tend to forget is, you are posting a status from behind the screen of your device and it is very easy to portray strength or be someone you really are not. Since the creation of Facebook and Twitter, we all have totally forgotten of who we are, instead we post a status that makes us out to be better than the rest, we hide behind our devices and use them as a crutch, to keep from simply being ourselves, only because for some reason, we totally think we have to put forth this fake identity in order for others to accept us.

Nobody knows how to stand on their own anymore, as all the real ” Social” interaction is gone from this society today. Without real interaction, we simply can not heal in a healthy way from what has hurt us with real pain. Somewhere along this journey through life we all have been hurt with real pain, whether that hurt comes self inflicted, or whether that hurt comes from another around us? The pain still hurts, but we can not truly heal on our own and yes, we do need interaction of others to help us heal in a healthy way.

Now don’t get me wrong The social media platforms can be good when used in the proper way, family members who move away we can still stay in touch like they are still right here with us. Friends we have found in school or college and when those days end, we all go our separate ways, well now we can still stay in touch, for one day when we plan a get together or reunite, to catch up and keep the friendship alive. Throughout this society and with all the drama already within it, these platforms just simply bring even more drama, with some of the ridiculous posts some may place on their status? Most of the posts out their do not even come close to being true, as we have lost that part of the journey and we do not know how to be true, not just to ourselves, but to one another.

What’s in a status you say? Really nothing as being in front of the one you want to chat with, goes a heck of a longer way than what any status can say. Respect and Dignity are gone from this society only because we do not truly interact with each other face to face, It is the true face to face interactions that makes us better and stronger moving forward, between the fake interactions and the posting to a status, we have created this political correctness, which now we become easily offended and the thick skin we used to have is gone, leaving behind all the scars from what brings us pain and hurt, so now we all have become weak and damaged and will do whatever we can to protect ourselves, like hiding deep within just to minimize the pain.

Within today’s society and all the so called friends on our platforms, we really have become a lonely society, lonely because some do not have that one true friend to confide in and vice versa, when the going gets tough, when we talk deeply of ourselves that is when the true healing starts and within all these platforms and the hiding behind a device, this keeps us from being as open as we should, so we than can truly heal ourselves from all the pain and hurt.  In order to be stronger and better as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we always need that face to face interaction, so we than can heal as healthy as we can from whatever keeps us down, hiding behind a device teaches us nothing, the only thing the device may teach us is, make our typing skills that much better, but other than that it really does nothing for us. We can’t even walk within society today without the device in our hands, nor even drive our cars with the device glued to our ears, when we walk down the street we don’t even know where we are going half the time, as we walk with our heads down within our device, instead of looking at where we are going, some have become so addicted to the device, that they can not put it down even for a second. The sad part is, we can change this if we wanted, but these devices have become so convenient, that we do not want to change anything and just keep walking our paths through this journey of life, the way we want so we can keep this fake reality in front of us, so we can hide behind it to keep the pain and hurt hidden deep within ourselves.

 

” Standing alone comes true peace and strength, without hiding behind any device”

” When you stand tall on your own two feet with no crutch, you will always move forward better and stronger”

” A status is nothing really except a bunch of make believe on a platform”

” Social media can be a good thing when used correctly, but like everything touched by man, it has become old and worn out as also we have become the same way”

Get out and explore

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Step out of your comfort zone, get away of the things that has become your norm, learn new things, as you stay true to who you are and always, never lose sight of who you truly are. There is so much we accumulate throughout this journey we walk, but what we take for granted is, these material things can be taken from us, as the knowledge we have within ourselves, can never be taken and is always ours no matter of what happens to us. When you go out and explore new things, whether it is doing something different at your 9 to 5, or it is getting out within nature, you are not only gaining confidence in yourself, you are gaining more knowledge, for which you can keep within you, to make you smarter and wiser, as you walk your path of this journey through life.

The trail may look in disarray, or maybe not well marked? But when you stay true to who you are and confident in your abilities, you will always see clearly of where to go and always see clearly of all the true beauty all around you. Unfortunately within a society full of ugliness, hate and corruption, it is very easy to become consumed within it, lose sight of who you truly are, as now you are trying to protect yourself from any harm coming to you, then enters the power of denial, which it will control everything about you and it will control every fiber of your being. Denial will have you see things that are not really there, as you then create this fake reality, which now you become part of the lies and the rhetoric, which is the furthest thing from the true reality.

Not all the trails within nature are clearly marked as you get out and explore, but as you stay true to who you are, these trails will always lead you to great things and never will you become lost, the confidence in your abilities will have you blazing the trail as if it was clearly marked for the direction you want to go. While walking the trail you may come across and see things you normally would not see, you will hear sounds that at first will have you a bit nervous, as later you find the source of the sounds and realize, that the source is also out exploring themselves along their path of this journey. There is so much to this journey, that unless you get out and explore, you will just never know of how much there truly is.

Too someone who just walks through the woods without clearly looking at what they are seeing, they will only see the woods as a mess, with the leaves littering the ground, tree’s and limbs hanging everywhere around, rocks put into places to trip you up, the thick brush making it hard to see where you are going, but too someone who gets out to explore and is true to themselves, will see a different picture within nature, they will see true life, erosion, change and when they look at where they are going, they will see around the thick brush, to blaze their path that others have never tried, you look to the sun in the sky to calculate time and in which direction you are going. How do you think Mankind survived, back in a time without all this technology, a time where cell phones were not even a thought in someone’s brain, we are so consumed within the ugliness of this society, we don’t let ourselves see other societies, that have blazed the trails for us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, there are many things out there that will trip us up, hurt us with real pain, turn us into someone we truly are not, plus not too mention of the society we live, full of ugliness, hatred and corruption, the easy part is too hide within ourselves to protect ourselves from the pain and hurt, but while we do this we are suppressing further down inside, the love within ourselves, so now the love is know where to be seen. The thing that we forget is, the hate is learned from somewhere and harder to keep going, as the love is already within us and much easier to spread among each other daily, if we all just stay true to ourselves, be who we are always, we will find that all this ugliness, hatred and corruption will disappear, as this is not truly of who we are. We the people have created all this ugliness, hatred and corruption, it is we the people that can end it all also, we just have to stay true to who we are and never become someone for who we are not, so we can stay in touch with the love inside ourselves, as we spread this love with each other, just as Jesus did, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

 

” Get out and explore all that is around you and stay true to who you are throughout this journey always”

” Step out of your comfort zone and gain the confidence to walk your path of this journey through life”

” The trails within nature to some may be messy, to others it’s the most beautiful of all the trails”

” All this ugliness, hatred and corruption is hurting us so bad, we are all becoming someone we truly are not”

 

 

The Peaceful beach really exists

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We have all dreamt of waking up on that secluded sandy beach, but as we walk our paths through this journey of life and get so caught up within this society, especially a society full of ugliness, hate and tragedy’s, the secluded beach gets lost within the clouds of our judgements, which then disappears from our minds, leaving us with no where to turn, to escape the crap within the society.

Oh!!! that secluded beach is very inviting, but what really lurks deep within the forest behind such a beautiful beach? You tie off your vessel to secure it, as you find that magical space, to which set up your area of secludeness, as you sit there and look out into the water and clear your mind with relaxing thoughts, there is that one thought that keeps rearing it’s ugly head, as you keep turning and checking the forest behind and seeing if something is sneaking up from those woods behind you?

The woods of the forest so dense and thick with natural growth, makes it hard to get a good look at what might creep up from behind you? So you than get up, go to the vessel and grab the oar or whatever you have as a weapon, you go for a  little jaunt within the woods to explore and look at what is around you. The one thing you certainly find is that, the woods has it’s own kind of beauty, that compliments the beauty of the secluded beach perfectly, okay maybe you didn’t find anything terrorizing, or something vicious that would want to bring you harm this time, that don’t mean it is not there and reason why we should never let our guard down, but at the same time, never let it affect us to the point, that we never find the secluded beach and enjoy totally all of it’s true beauty.

Looking at this picture helps me remmember the television show Gilligan’s Island, makes me day dream of what it might be like being stranded on an uncharted Island with a very secluded beach, building a hut as a make shift house to hang my hat, be intrigued for what I may find, or even live as primitive as the Caveman, back in the history of Mankind. Creating and making your own inventions and tools, living within a world for which has only been within your head, to that point. Just think of it for a minuate…….. No chaos, no corruption, no ugliness or hatred, the only thing around is you and what ever lurks within the forest of that sandy beach, who knows there just might be Heaven on Earth and not just within our heads.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, it is we the people with our thoughts and actions, that bring this corruption, chaos and hate to this society, so the best way to end all this crap is, for each of us to escape the claws of denial and get back to living as Jesus taught us, get back to walking this journey with positive thoughts, as we stop all the negative chit chat and let our true actions do all the speaking we need, to move forward and not backwards, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

 

 

” The peaceful sandy beach is so inviting, let’s never just see the peace and look truly into everything around it”

” The difference between a dream and reality is, a dream is fake news and reality we all live  together with our actions”

” To be secluded on a private sandy beach may seam like a dream, but that is really not what reality is”

” We escape reality to enter into our little dream worlds even for a short time, we can never do the opposite because it does not exist and not of who we truly are”

 

 

 

To look deeply into what you see, with the right focus

Unfortunately within this society we do not focus on the right things, to truly see the reality of what is around us. “If life was like a deck of cards, we all today are clearly lost within the shuffle of the deck”. Take this picture for instance, most would just float on by without seeing the coolness or the, intrigue part of what we see. There is so much we can learn and see when we get out and explore within nature, the problem we all have is, we are all lost within the shuffle, that we clearly can not see what is around us, which has us all missing the important parts, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look no further than the Individuals for who we vote into office, that are suppose to come together to lead us, to make all our lives better, as these Individuals are clearly lost within the shuffle of the cards of life, which has them in the wrong section of this journey and most dangerous, the section of denial which they clearly can not see any true reality that is around them. If we all just take a step back, look deeper into what we see, then we can stop the shuffle of the deck, get back to true reality and truly see all that is around us, as we then see all the true beauty as well.

This picture is so cool on so many levels, as you look at what is in front of you, you can see all that is within nature, from the erosions, to the new life. The tree may look as if it is growing out of the rock? But when you look deeper, you clearly can see that, through the erosion of the river at it’s highest point, has the roots of the tree becoming exposed to the light of day. Everything in life is subject to erosion over time, even we as Humans erode over time, as when we reach our Golden years, not only does our bodies change, but our minds erode as we call this ” Alzheimer’s, but our pride has us not excepting as we should. With all that is eroding in nature, there is even more new life that comes in, which is also known as the ” cycle of life”. The Cycle of life is a big part of the journey we all walk, just that we take too much for granted everything within the journey, we clearly do not see the cycle. Those within the walls of Washington DC talk so much on global warming or climate change, that they have forgotten, a big part of what is within the life cycle, true we the people with our bad habits and decisions, can and will be a part of the life cycle, but the cycle of life is something that is going to happen no matter what, this is just a part of this journey through life that we need to understand better, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward, without being lost within the shuffle of the deck.

Getting lost within the shuffle of the deck is, kind of like being lost within a big city and never going outside of the city. You protect yourself from what is around you in the city, that you then don’t look at the bigger picture around you, you don’t get out and explore anything that is outside of your comfort zone, which then has you not truly seeing any true reality that is around you. This is kind of like being in denial, which has you making up your own reality, instead of living within true reality, yes there is that element of danger when we get out and explore within nature, it takes us away from our comfort zone, but if we never get out and explore, we will never truly understand what is around us, nor will we ever truly understand the true reality of this journey through life, as we walk our paths within our comfort zones, protecting us from what is around us and losing touch with the ” cycles of life”.

” To look deeper into what is around you, you first have to refocus and get out and explore new things”

” This journey of life is like a deck of cards, which we all get lost within the shuffle”

” Denial keeps us in our comfort zone, which then has us making up our own reality”

” The life cycle of this journey through life is something we all need to understand better, to move forward better and stronger”

Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

The Greatest Generation

Slide 61 of 100
This was a generation that without even thinking, would stand up and be counted, they stood up and weren’t afraid to face anything that crossed their paths they were walking, this generation has been through so much more, then any other generation that followed them. In today’s generation and within this political correct world, plus with all the technology we have become weak and lazy. Today’s generation couldn’t even hold the jock strap, of the generation from WW2. It’s just not the fact that, the greatest generation going and fighting for all the generations that would follow them, these guys were not selfish, unlike those of today with their selfies. This generation wouldn’t just sit on their A$$es while others went to battle, unlike today’s generation that can’t even get out of their own way, plus today’s generation or at least a high percentage of them, would never go into the Armed forces to fight the good fight, they would rather stay home and play their video games, instead of truly fighting for what they believe in. If it wasn’t for the greatest generation, we of today maybe would never have all the freedoms we have? Maybe we would of been invaded and then forced to be someone for who we truly are not? Or even just maybe we would of been dictated to, told when to use the bathroom, or even wouldn’t of been able to work and put food on our own tables. When you look at some of the cultures out there within this world, we are free to do as we want everyday and we owe that to those of the greatest generation. We buy our own houses today so we can live pretty comfortable and have a decent roof over our heads, but what about the thought of living under a lean to with only two small sides and a roof made out of brush, then when the winter months came, we all froze to the point that, only the strong and healthy survive. The fact is, life would of been a lot different if it wasn’t for these, brave men and woman, who gave a big part of themselves, so we of today can be free, to do all we do, with the freedom to roam as we may, without having to answer to anybody, except ourselves with the actions we are free to take. These men in this boat are getting ready to be unloaded to fight the good fight, but by the smiles on their faces may have us think it was easy of what they did? It was far from easy as they gave their all, for what they truly believed in, some come home not of the same person as they went there with, while they were missing parts, or not even came home at all. We of this society take so much for granted, as those of that generation sacrificed so much and got back so little. We don’t even think of these Individuals for what they did for us, we of this generation lack respect of each other and with that lack of respect, proves further that we do not respect those of yesteryear, which clearly shows why, we are so full of ourselves, that we can not see any good that may be around us. We all walk a path through this journey of life, there is a lot of this journey that we can not do alone, so we need each other as these brave young and woman did along their journey, not too mention their selfless acts for the good for all the generations to come. ” D-day the storming on the Juno beach in Normandy, done by such brave men, for the good of us all in the future generations to come” ” We take so much for granted in today’s world, then get lazy as we play the video games we think is our reality” ” Freedom is never Free, as somewhere and someone has given their all for the freedom we have today”
