Let’s clear the deadwood and end Bullying now,

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

There is so much more to walking the path we chose through this journey of life. We all at some point within our lives have been Bullied or have Bullied another, the thing we never talk about especially those who have been Bullied is, the fact that when you are being Bullied, you are shamed into thinking maybe something is wrong with me? Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all, when we are shamed we tend to forget who we truly are, for which we then put forth a fake self, just to try to fit in and be accepted. When we are shamed by another and bullied to the point we try to avoid others, we then become as lonely as this tree with all the deadwood around it.

There is so much true beauty around us as well as the beauty within each of us, that when we are Bullied and are shamed from the Bullying, we never get a chance to truly see any of the beauty around us or within. We walk our paths of this journey for we ourselves, it’s not about making others happy, it is more about being truly happy deep within ourselves, so we than can be happy on the outside, as we take this happiness to all that is around us. What a Bully never see’s when he is in the process of controlling what’s around him is, he never see’s any beauty either as to him there is nothing but power and control, plus the fact that a Bully has lost the feelings deep within himself like, the feelings of empathy or compassion, because if he felt either of these, he would never be a Bully anymore, to terrorize anyone of us.

The effects from a Bully can and will last a lifetime, they will leave scars and these scars can’t be seen, as they are deep within us, whether we want to admit to them or not. The scars from being shamed by a Bully are not just a scar that, with a band aid they heal and disappear from sight, these scars are emotional and come with great pain and hurt. The pain and hurt coming from shame, will have us become someone we truly are not, we ourselves won’t even recognize ourselves as we hide deep within ourselves and put forth this fake self, to try to protect ourselves from further pain and hurt, we will rationalize away anything coming from the shame as well as , going deep into denial, which then has us not even accepting our actions moving forward.

Bullying is nothing more than having the power and control over someone/something, it is also nothing more than using fear to have that power and control, a Bully is also a Coward as they can not even accept their own issues and then, they take it out on someone around them. A Bully can be anybody and you could be standing next to one now? The true way too stop a Bully is look them in the eye , show no fear as they try to make you fear, show them that they can not hurt or control you, as they then will cower away, like the true Coward for whom they are. There are Bully’s everywhere whether Domestic or abroad, we all have to face one sooner or later, now through Social media there are even the worse kind of Bully, known as the Cyber Bully, to which we never face, because they are a true coward that hides behind their device, these individuals can’t face any issues, let alone their own issues and hiding behind a device proves that, the problem is, they will do and say anything to have us become a slave to their words, so they than can ( in their own minds) seem as powerful to anything along this journey, but in realty they are the weakest link to this Society and need to be treated as such, so they will disappear from all our paths of this journey through life.

 

” A Bully is nothing more than a Coward that try’s to inflict fear on all that is around them”

” With a Bully it is all about power and control, when we don’t give them that, then they disappear like the tumble weeds in the wind of the desert”

” Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all and when we become shamed we then lose sight of who we truly are”

” Cyber Bullying is the new way of a Coward to try to control each of us, time we nip it in the bud and end their reign of terror”

” We all want the power and control, but when we forget of truly who we are, then our actions become inaction’s throughout our paths of this journey”

A piece of History……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The delivery of the History lesson and the way the teacher teaches the lesson………… Okay it might need some excitement brought into the lesson, but when you simply go out within Nature and explore, makes for a great way to learn all the History you want to learn about.

Rockwood is a small town within northern Maine at the tip of Moosehead lake toward the north and not far from the Canadian border. It is always fun to learn of these places, where you don’t venture to all that often, so you can see how the town was born, what resources came from this town and who was the first settlers of this town. Maine is one of those States that is full of History, some maybe you do know, but a lot you never knew. When some come here for a visit a lot of times they don’t take the time to truly learn of the History, only they jump into their boats and go so fast, the History goes right over their heads, without them really learning of where they are.

Yes the Ice Age was real and something that truly happened along this journey through life, this life evolves in cycles and each cycle is round, so over time, there are times that keeps repeating itself, just like the life cycle of each one of us, within our cycles there are the up’s as well as the down’s, things happen to us within our cycles for a reason and it is us that needs to find the reason, so we can be better informed as our cycle turns round and round, the same goes for the cycles within the journey as well, they also happen for a reason and unless we understand truly the reason, we will never truly understand any History that is right in front of us.

History has proven time and time again, that the Native Indian here in America was here first, it is us the White man that invaded them and pushed ourselves into their home. We cut down all the tree’s, developed all the land and all simply for the greed, then once we got a taste of the greed, we then let the greed control truly of who we are. Okay there have been some of our elected officials over the History of these United States that actually had a brain and with that brain, they have declared some of the land here a National land or park, where it is protected from any development, so there are is still some true beauty for us to get out and explore, but that still doesn’t make it right that we invaded and developed a good chunk of this land and all in the name of greed.

True that all this land within North America is rich with resources that we need, but there is a difference between taking the resources to make our lives better and taking the resources, just to line our pockets with greed. The biggest problem with the History of this great land of America is, we the People………. We the People have destroyed a big chunk of this land, just for the greed and could care less of any History that the land may hold. Mount Kineo was formed from the Ice Age of over 10,000 years ago, it was a place the Native Americans fished, hunted and gathered the Kineo Rhyolite, which is a durable stone for them to make their tools, this was also considered one of the best finds in all of North America. It is fun to learn of all this History and even more fun, to get out and explore as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

In the 1800’s the Moose river to Moosehead lake became the premier waterways for reaching all the logging roads within the woods of Maine and Rockwood, became the staging grounds for the full scale logging operations. Rockwood is truly a beautiful place and when you really learn of it’s History, makes it even more beautiful a place to visit and get away from the daily grind.

Every State within these United States is rich with their own History and to truly learn of the History, we need to get out and explore, instead of just developing the land, to fill our pockets with the greed, or not truly focusing on the history and getting lost within the journey for which we walk.

 

” Mount Kineo is one of those hidden gems, that most have no idea of what or even where it is”

” The native American was here first, as we the white man invaded and took their homes away from them”

” There are many places like Rockwood throughout this country, just that we have to get out and explore to see all the true beauty”

” There is much wildlife throughout the area of northern Maine, with the American Bald Eagle taking up residence there as well”

” The American Bald Eagle is such a big powerful bird and is fun to just sit and watch as they fly through the sky with the greatest of ease”

 

The Northern lights

Nature Hearts

The Northern Lights are a sight that is second to none, as Mother Nature shows you her true beauty. This is what I was hoping to see last night, as I went for a midnight hike up a mountain that is pretty much in my back yard, you can see from the picture, that this phenomenon is a spectacle that is second to none, not even the fourth of July fireworks can touch the beauty of this light show.

The Northern lights or another words known as the Aurora Borealis, these lights form when charged particles form from the sun during a solar flare, then  penetrate the Earth’s magnetic shield and collide with atoms and molecules within our atmosphere. These collisions result in countless little bursts of light, called Photons, which makes up the Aurora. When these charged particles form they stream from the sun at speeds of about one million miles an hour. These lights are most commonly seen from those who live in or visit high latitudes, which makes this a big spectacle for the rest of us, when they do happen in southern latitudes, only because it doesn’t happen all that often.

Mother Nature and the World outside of Earth, has such a pure beauty that unless you pay attention to it, you totally miss out of this beauty, which then has you becoming consumed with all the ugliness of a broken Society. We all today get so caught up in living our lives and making ends meet, that we then totally forget of all that is around us, there is a lot around us then just walking out the door and seeing your neighbor’s house or vehicle, there is a lot more than jumping into your vehicle and driving to work for your weekly check, there is a much bigger World out there, then the World we think we know? Simply go camping within nature, no not within a camper on wheels (which you are only parking not true camping), camp within a tent, deep within the forest of Nature, as you lay in your sleeping bag within your tent, stop and listen to the ground and see what Mother Nature is saying to you. During the day go out for a Nature walk and really pay attention to what is around you, not just what you see, but what you hear as you walk, some may walk in the woods and come back saying that, there is nothing of beauty and nothing that interest them? I say it is because they didn’t truly look deeply into what they were looking at and only saw what they wanted to see and nothing more. There is so much beauty within Mother Nature, each time you journey within it, you will see something totally different each and every time you venture within it.

Just like last night, those that trekked up to the top of the mountain to witness the Northern lights, some came back disappointed because they saw nothing, while some like myself knew there was a chance we wouldn’t see them as the haze rolled in, so I looked even deeper, while I listened to the birds sing, the owls chat, the heat bugs ramble on and even saw a Porcupine along my path. It is not about getting consumed with what the media tells you and then expecting to see what they tell you? It is all about being truly in tune with Mother Earth and understanding totally of how she operates, you can’t get in tune with Mother Earth if you totally rely on the media, as they also ( unless they understand) don’t truly know Mother Earth, you can see one thing in nature one day, the very next day see something totally different, which proves even further of just how beautiful this planet we walk really is. We all walk a path through this journey of life, part of the walking is truly looking deeply into what you see, so you can truly understand and see all the true beauty that is around you.

 

” The northern lights or the Aurora Borealis, are an awesome spectacle to see if you can, one of mother Earth’s true beauty for us to see”

” The most common area to view the northern lights is in a northern latitude place, making those in the southern latitude far and few sightings”

” Get outside and truly see the World around you within Mother Nature and Mother Earth”

” As you walk within Nature, don’t say anything, just open your ears wide and truly listen to everything around you, and it will relax you from the daily grind”

 

Plant a seed and watch it grow with it’s beautiful fruit……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” But the seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears the fruit and yields a hundred, or sixty, or thirty fold”.

Mt 13:23

 

We all know that a Farmer sows his seeds, then cultivates these seeds into a successful crop, as he nourishes and spreads his love around the seeds, so he can watch them grow, to become better and stronger, while bearing their fruit throughout the journey of the seeds.

Every living thing starts as a seed, that needs love, cultivating and nourishment, even we the people of this Society start as a seed, then given life for which to grow and become stronger throughout our journey, like all other seeds. Not all seeds make it through to the end of it’s journey, some seeds get laid out along a path, that the birds swoop down and eat them, before they get a chance to sink into the soil, some seeds are spread a bit close to the other, which then chokes the seed never giving it a chance to spread, but the seeds that are spread on a rich soil and are nourished with love and nutrients, are the seeds that then grow to be quite healthy, that then flourish with their fruits, for us all to enjoy and be happy along our paths of this journey through life.

All seeds throughout this journey through life, need cultivating, nourishment and love, without these three things, then the seed will never set up it’s root system, that then sets it’s foundation for which to grow. Without the strong root system to help build  a strong foundation, now the seed is open to whatever that may come between it and the soil, leaving the seed vulnerable to all that may come before it. The seed of life may seem small and in need of much love, cultivating and nourishment, but when planted on the richest of soils, can become very big, while becoming better and stronger, so it can be free to share it’s fruit with all that is around it.

The journey of the seed may be a long one that takes time, but if you don’t rush the process, it is time well spent, so we all can share in all the fruit of the seed. When the process is altered and short cuts being taken, now you have a future of the seed that is unknown, a future that doesn’t truly grow to it’s potential, a seed that gets choked out before it can actually grow to it’s full potential, or even a seed that instead of bearing it’s true beautiful fruit, it then gets consumed with ugliness and fruit that is less than what it’s potential could of been.

A seed is a delicate commodity in this journey through life, it is how everything starts out and grows through this journey, so it than can bear it’s fruit for us all to enjoy. A seed………… any seed, is some kind of living and breathing form of life, showing that with the right soil and the right ingredients, like nutrients, love and the right cultivation, all seeds can grow healthy and happy, so they than can bear their fruit for all to enjoy.

Throughout this Society we all live, we can clearly see that there are some seeds that did not get the three big ingredients  of life, like the love, nutrients, or the right cultivation? With all the ugliness around us simply shows us that, we have to choose better of the soil for where to plant our seeds, we need to nourish better, cultivate better and spread our love better, so the seeds we plant, can and will grow better, to one day bear their fruits for all to enjoy, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life in peace and happiness always.

 

” Plant a seed………. love, cultivate and nourish that seed and one day watch it bear it’s fruit for all to enjoy”

” Every living thing that breathes, started as a seed that one day with the right cultivation can bear fruit for all to enjoy”

” In a Society of many there are many ways that a seed can become cut off from setting it’s roots, we need to respect better the seeds so they can grow healthy”

” Without the seed then this journey through life will be like a desert, with no color of any beautiful fruit”

 

The Journey’s journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The swooshing of the paddle moving through the water, the bow of the kayak bouncing with every stroke of the paddle, the kayak gliding along the water each time the paddle cuts through the water beneath you, you can feel the water beneath your seat as you move forward along your journey, on such a beautiful day within Nature.

There are so many journey’s within this journey through life, it is hard to find the right journey for which to trek. It is always good to go outside your realm of comfort, just so you can explore and go trekking in places you normally would not go. To be one with Nature goes a lot deeper than just going for a walk, just to be outside. When you let yourself glide through the water without moving the paddles and just listen to the quietness of what’s around you, is so calming to the body, that now you can become in tune with Nature and truly here what Nature has to say? Nature does not speak as you and I do, for it gives you signs like Jesus does for us, in order to truly see these signs, we first have to be in total tune with Nature, so we than can hear just what it is saying.

The Birds singing their daily songs, the fish jumping from the water around us, an occasional Moose coming to waters edge for it’s daily splash, or maybe even an American Bald Eagle diving the water, for it’s daily meal. These are the signs that nature gives us along our journey of trekking through it, so we can than become one with Nature and totally enjoy all that is around us, without becoming so stressed out, that we then become someone we truly are not.

As we walk our paths through this Society, we get so consumed with all the crap, that we forget to and never get in tune with Nature, then we never see all the true beauty that is around us everyday, simply because we don’t allow ourselves the time to get out and not just go trekking outside, but go and explore fully, of what is around us.

There is so much more to the paths we walk through this journey of life, the real problem is we the people for not letting ourselves truly explore what is around us, instead we let ourselves become consumed with all the crap, which then leads to more crap which leads to, bringing much pain and hurt to our lives, instead of, being truly happy and peaceful as we walk our paths of this journey. When God created this Planet and all that is around us, he did so for good reason, time we focus on the reason and stop getting consumed with all the crap around us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we become one with Nature, we then can truly see all the beauty in everything around us, instead of letting ourselves get consumed with all the crap, so we then only see crap and not the true beauty of everything. Even when you see a group of tree’s like along this shoreline in the picture, don’t just glance at the tree’s and the shoreline, look deeply into what you see and let yourself see the true beauty of what you are looking at.

 

” There is beauty in everything we see, we just have to look deep enough to truly see the beauty”

” When we get consumed with all the crap is when we let the pain and hurt of the crap affect of who we truly are”

” There are many journeys within this journey of life, we just have to get out and be one with nature to see the rest of the journeys”

” Let’s adjust our focus along this journey of life, to truly see all the beauty that is around us”

 

The Quiet calm of Nature

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

What truly draws you to being outdoors? Is it the peacefulness? The calming that overwhelms you? Is it the beauty? The being able to explore an unknown? There is so much going on deep within the woods of this picture, the only way to truly find out, is to go explore and enjoy the beauty first hand. Now some never make an attempt to go into the woods, in a place they have never been to explore, simply because they are too afraid of what may happen once they are out there? Some only go outside to watch their children play a ball game, or maybe play a round a golf from time to time. Now being outside in the fresh air of Nature and exploring all it has to offer, now this is what truly invigorates and cleans your soul, for whatever this journey through life may throw at you.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we explore everyday as we go. What the problem then is, the fact we get stuck into these ruts of which we struggle to get out of, we get so accustomed to what we are doing, we then become too scared to venture along a new path, for fear of the unknown. Now sometimes we get into these ruts not of our doing, but of the doing of our surroundings, or the doing of another, that may bring us chaos and pain and the way we deal with this pain, is hiding deep within ourselves, then putting forth a fake self towards others, so we can try to move forward, with as little pain as we can, or try to move forward with what we think normal is suppose to be. When we do try to move forward with as little pain as we can, we then do not walk our path confidently and simply, just wander with no real direction of where we are truly going.

We want so much to fit in with all those around us, we get into this mind set of doing whatever we have to, so others will simply like us and except us into their world? This is when we lose sight of who we truly are and then we become something we are not and forget of just being ourselves, thinking that if we do so, the right people will come and not only stay in our lives, but will help us more than we or they will ever know. This journey through life really isn’t that difficult, but it is we who make it difficult, which then makes it harder and harder, to walk our paths correctly through this journey of life.

The beauty within Nature is so beautiful, the only way to see just how beautiful, is too take part within Nature. Go trekking and explore in places you have never been, see things that you normally would never see in your everyday lives. Get away of the thoughts that you need to go sit on a beach in an exotic place, like all the rest of the others do, get away from those ones that say that sitting on a beach in those places is the way to go? Life isn’t about the keeping up with the Jones, life is all about getting outside your comfort zone and exploring places and things, that normally you would never do. This journey through life has so much to offer, but yet most of us don’t even get close to 30% of what life has to offer. We get so stuck within these ruts, that we forget that there is so much more out there and before we know it, this journey through life has passed us by. Nature has so much too offer us, that it is a journey that never ends, there is so much beauty on this planet Earth through Nature, it is impossible to take it all in throughout our journey, but that is what makes our paths we walk even more enjoyable as we walk them, when we get stuck within the ruts, we lose so much of this journey through life, that it makes it that much harder to get it all back and why we then have so much regret, as we near the end of our journey.

 

” The quiet calm of Nature really isn’t quiet, we need to explore to truly see all the activity within it”

” Get out and explore all that is around you, you may find your true inner peace then be truly happy as you walk this journey”

” Life isn’t about keeping up with the Jones, as it is all about exploring and discovering everything that is around you”

” The comfortable rut will have us wandering, as getting out and exploring will have us truly walking our paths through this journey of life”

 

 

First the Erosion than the Change…..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

You first have to have the Erosion before any Change can take place. The Erosion happens making room for the new and whatever change may come? There is a lot of erosion that happens all around us, even we as Humans go through a sort of erosion, so we can make the necessary changes, to walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger.

Whether you are in the mountains or on the beach, there are many different kinds of erosion’s happening all the time, from mud slides to rock slides, to beach erosion and if you happen to have real estate in these areas, you better expect change to come from these erosion’s. We as Humans will have erosion’s as well, or better known as a meltdown, or going from a young age to an older age. As we age there is a lot of change that comes to us, whether we want it or not? Life events will have us erode as the person we were, to the person we become and this scares the hell out of us, which will force us to hide within ourselves, afraid to be who we truly are and afraid to face reality or others around us, this is what we know as negative change and if we don’t except it, then it will control every fiber of our being, keeping us from being who we truly are and making any change at all, very hard or non existent.

When we except the negative change and truly fix what we need to fix, then we can turn the negative into a positive, which then helps in the erosion process, so we then can minimize the erosion and letting the change come to us easier, so we can continue walking our paths of this journey in peace and happiness.

The erosion in this picture at first glance may look ugly and have us wondering why does it have to be like this? But when you look deeply into what you see, you can see the beauty that will come from the erosion, making everything else around it just as beautiful as well. The stream looking dried up and the shore nothing but rocks, as the vegetation around, getting little or not enough water, leaving the vegetation at the mercy of the erosion, but with plenty of nutrients from the water, makes the erosion small and letting true change come to all that is around it.

There are many different kinds of erosion all around us, even what comes to each of us moving forward, but when we understand better of the erosion and let Nature take it’s course naturally, we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, in peace and happiness always and forever.

 

” First comes the erosion to be able to identify change”

” Then there is change leaving us with a good self Esteem”

” Erosion isn’t just for the landscape, as it is also for each of us as we walk this journey through this life”

” Erosion may tear things up for a short time, as the change replaces and makes everything new once again”
