Shutting down and not being of who you truly are……..

writing

This journey through life will throw many curve balls and trip you up if you do not adapt and change correctly. The paths we walk may differ, but the journey is all the same, we view everything differently from one another and when we look at something, someone else will see different of the thing we are looking at. throughout this journey, there will be many life events that will come before us, some we may bring on ourselves with others coming to us from another. With these events will come much pain and hurt and will hurt us deeply if we never take care of them properly, without hiding within and becoming someone for who we truly are not.

Within this picture, we all will see very different all that is within the frame of the picture, some may not see anything but green and say this is boring? But only because you yourself are hiding within and not truly feeling your true feelings deep within, you may see the rocks in the path and just see them as rocks, but just like in this journey, the paths will have obstacles to get around or climb over. When we hide within and never truly feel the true feelings within, we will then isolate ourselves from everything, in order to keep further harm from bringing us more pain.

Isolation is something we do to hide from reality especially when that reality brings us much pain and hurt. The life events that come to us along this journey, are some from our own actions but a lot comes from the actions of others toward us as we walk our paths, even when we do not ask for whatever the event that may come to us. There are a wide range of events that will affect us, these events will control every fiber of our being as well if we let it, true they may not be something we can control, but when we stay true to who we are, then we can fix what we need to fix, to move forward better and stronger, instead of hiding within and escaping all the pain and hurt from the events.

When we hide within we then become isolated from everything around us, we bury our true feelings so deep within our souls, we then try to move forward with no feelings to actually feel anything around us, when we trip and fall on the obstacles and instead of picking ourselves up properly, we then get engulfed in the self-pity to the point, we then become numb from the true pain and hurt we may feel and never let it scar and heal properly. ” The scars may let us know where we have been, but they do not have to dictate where we are going”. Procrastination is a big part of life events throughout this journey when we procrastinate we then do not properly heal in a healthy time frame, which has us do anything to relieve ourselves from all the pain and hurt.

When we become isolated from all that is around us, we then shutdown to try to escape the real pain, when we shutdown we then pay no attention to what may lie around us, which we will never see any of the true beauty that is right in front of us. Some may look at this picture and see nothing, while others will see all the true beauty of mother nature, plus the small critter that may be lurking within the high grass in the picture? Life events can and will control every fiber of your being, real pain and hurt will come from the life events, but when we take care properly of the life events, we then can minimize the pain, let our true feelings have us feel less hurt, while our love from within takes care of the hurt, so we all can move forward along our paths of this journey and be better and stronger, while we smile a real smile, out of true happiness always.

 

” When we shut down to escape all that is around us, we will never truly feel anything and never see any true beauty that may be in front of us”

 

” When we isolate ourselves from all that is around us, we then will be hiding in plain sight throughout this journey of life”

the thick dark clouds hovering over a society

camp cloutier

You see these dark thick clouds making the sky look dark and mean, these are the same clouds hovering over this society. These are the dark thick clouds that have we the people in the clouds with our judgments, the problem is that we have become so arrogant, so ugly toward one another, so engulfed within the hatred, that we clearly can not see any light, nor can we see clearly of any reality around us.

All you have to do is turn on any news station, or pick up any newspaper to read, both these publications go out of their way to print all the ugliness simply because it is what sells within this ugly society, these media companies have an agenda and they stick to it, the agenda is quite simple………. bring as much drama, ugliness and hatred you can, to further us more deeply within it. The problem is we let them suck us into it to the point we crave it and want more.

Just look at how our so-called leaders within our Governments and the way they are reacting to a seated President, their hatred of this President goes so deep that they not only can not do their jobs anymore, but they have become so far in denial that they have zero clue of what true reality is. Those of us who can see clearly as we walk this journey simply can see right through the corruption of these so-called leaders, we just have to vote better and smarter at the ballot box, so we can help President Trump truly drain the swamp, that has consumed all the walls and all the streets within Washington DC.

The corruption, the ugliness, and the hatred go a lot deeper than the walls of Washington DC, it is everywhere throughout this planet as we walk our paths through this journey of life, So it then lies within we the people of this society, to which we would rather ignore than to correct it. We have become so arrogant in our ways that our attitude is, ” if it does not affect me, then I don’t care”, well that’s the wrong attitude as you can clearly see where that has taken us? The time is now to end all this ugliness, the hatred, and the corruption and yes we the people when we stick together, can do just that, plus destroy all the fake news media in the process simply by ignoring all their publications, so they then wither away like a snake in the grass.

Hatred is learned as we have learned this attitude from somewhere, time to find the source of this hatred and unplug it completely, so we then can move forward along this journey being of truly who we are. As hatred is learned, love is within us and is totally natural, love is the true feeling that Jesus showed us as he walked his journey here with us, because of all the hatred, the corruption, and the ugliness, we have buried our feeling of love so deep within, that it is sitting idle as we can not feel it anymore, we need to resurrect this feeling of love, so we then can warm up our hearts and souls with it and get them out of the darkness and the cold. When we do this we then can bring the same warmth to society as we share it with each other. Through the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls, not only will it make this society peaceful and happy, it will end all the ugliness, hatred and the corruption that we the people let consume us greatly today. We all walk a path through this journey of life just as Jesus did, so let’s do it right, let’s do it as Jesus showed us, so we all can see the light clearly through any kind of clouds and reach the path of righteousness, which will make for a better society and one that is full of love with we the people within the peace and happiness we all so deserve, throughout this journey of life.

 

” We clearly see the dark thick clouds of the weather, so why can’t we see the dark thick clouds of all the ugliness around us”

 

” Let’s end all this hate, corruption and ugliness before it ends all of our existence through this journey”

 

” The media and the corrupt walls within Wahington DC are the problems, time we fix the problem and move forward not backward through this journey”

 

” Hatred is learned from somewhere, time to unlearn it so we can truly feel the love within our hearts and souls, then share it with each other”

 

 

Finding that inner peace……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, even as our paths may differ the journey is the same. Each society throughout time has been very different from each other, in today’s society it is full of unnecessary drama, chaos, ugliness, hatred, and corruption. With all this crap front and center around us, it becomes difficult to focus and find that peace we search for, we all have that inner peace within us, but when we become hurt and feel real pain from our surroundings, we then bury deep within a huge piece of who we truly are, this includes our inner peace which becomes so buried, it is like it does not exist anymore. Inner peace is the place we can go to escape, that place that helps us heal and rejuvenate ourselves, so we can move forward better with each step. I mean there is really no cure-all from walking our paths, as life experiences will get us down at times, but the inner peace will help us heal from all the crap we step through along this journey.

That rocky shoreline at a lake deep within the woods of mother nature, this may not be our inner peace, but it is a peace that some may never see as they become trapped within the streets of the cities. While you sit and enjoy the quiet sounds of this rocky shoreline, mother nature then talks to you in her language or should I say the language of peace, the sounds of the choppy water splashing the shoreline, the sounds of the Loon in the distance, even an American Bald Eagle flying overhead, The birds singing their tunes to each other, the many sounds of nature communicating to you in the realest form of communication possible. This is all part of mother’s nature’s peace and how we heal ourselves from our real pain and hurt, so we then can lift that inner peace back to the top of everything within us and be better and stronger moving forward.

What do you truly see as you look out onto the quiet serenity of the lake? When you look deeply and not superficially at your surroundings, you will see all the true beauty all around you and you will never see any crap, no matter where you are looking. When you sit and listen to mother nature chat, you will then become relaxed and totally feel all the daily stress just melt away from your broad shoulders.  Mother Nature is more than just stepping outside to enjoy her beauty, she is also all the life of all the living things around us, she can be so beautiful and she can be so ferocious as well, with all the natural disasters we see and the devastation they bring, is all the proof we need. with all that aside, the power of mother nature will heal us greatly, but first, we need to see her true beauty and truly listen to her when she speaks to us as only mother nature can speak.

 

” That inner peace within us is where we go to heal ourselves from all the pain and hurt that may come to us along this journey”

” You have heard of the higher power within us? That is the inner peace that heals us and makes us stronger with each step”

” Mother nature at times will show her fury, but it is only to get us to listen to her true peace and serenity”

 

 

Just go for a walk they said………

Just a simple little walk within nature and in the mountains can result in a strenuous hike with the grandest of views as your reward, for stepping out of your comfort zone to experience such great beauty. The breathtaking views from the summit after a grueling days hike, that’s what hiking is all about, in some cases after a long day on the trail, there are huts to get a good meal, rest and some good sleep, for the next day on the trail. These huts within the mountains have great hospitality, as well as some of the best food you can get deep within the middle of the wilderness, as it hits the spot of all the weary Hikers that come across these huts no matter of where they are.

As I sit atop Cannon mountain by way of the Kinsman trail/lonesome lake trail, this range I look upon is Franconia ridge trail and one of the best ridges that the white mountains of New Hampshire have. There is a lot of great hiking in the white mountains, with a lot of great views as well, but the best part of the hiking is, being one with nature, to heal the mind, body, and soul from all the corruption, chaos, ugliness and the hatred that is all around us within the society of today.

Never be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, step outside within mother nature to experience all the true beauty all around you. There is so much more to this journey through life and unless you wander into places that may have never been touched by man, then you truly will never experience the beauty known to man as God’s country.

You need not go climb a mountain to experience the beauty of mother nature, you can also step outside onto a nature trail, like maybe a trail around a lake, these kinds of trails will have you outside and seeing things you normally would never see, unless you step outside your comfort zone to see them. It is okay to explore and not only see new things but learn new things as well, which will broaden your horizons. as you then heal from all that may bring you much pain and hurt.

We all get so stuck within our comfortable ruts to the point we never step outside, as we fear more that the pain and hurt will overwhelm us. A comfortable rut is that place we put ourselves to keep from more pain and hurt, that place where we suppress deep within our true selves, instead of just being true to ourselves, so we than can heal deeply of our pain, to relieve our mind, body, and souls. The problem within this world of social media is, we are not that social with each other, only we hide behind our technology devices, without any face to face interactions, then we stew within our comfortable ruts, instead of stepping out within mother nature to heal ourselves properly. We all need that downtime, that time to defuse and ease ourselves from the broken society out there, the human body wasn’t made to keep up the mach speed pace, we were also not made to hide behind our technology devices, as we need to be truly social with face to face interactions, so we then can be true to who we are, showing our love of each other always, being kind to one another with no hatred in our sights for us to trip over.

 

 

” Just go for a walk to defuse, relax and learn new things within the beauty of mother nature”

” Most of the time the hard work is well worth it when the reward is even greater”

” We become encompassed in our comfortable ruts to keep from further pain or harm”

” Step outside of our comfort zones to explore learn new things and grow healthier with more happiness along this journey of life”

 

 

The beauty of the Earth and all there to explore

Slide 8 of 31: Montana is drowning in beautiful bodies of water, with more than 3,000 lakes and reservoirs across the state. It’s hard to pick the prettiest but we reckon Avalanche Lake just edges into the lead thanks to its crystalline, glacier-fed water, forested shores and the Rocky Mountains, which shimmer in the distance like the most striking wallpaper.

” Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth”

Matthew 5:5

 

Blake Shelton and his new song called God’s Country has it totally correct, with pictures like this proves just that. This picture is taken in Montana and I need to get to this state, so I can totally be one with nature and enjoy all this beauty. Camping, kayaking, and mountains OH MY!!! Montana has it all if your big into the outdoors and exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer and with scenery like this, your days will be full of peace, serenity, and adventure.

I can see myself paddling the kayak up this river, breathing in the cool fresh air and totally taking in everything around me. Mother Nature with all her beauty has so much to offer, but if you do not get out and explore, you will never know just how much you are missing. There is so much more to this journey than just being stuck within the cities, some may take their vacations and go to places where all others go, but to get out where the hands of man have never been………. Now your talking of just how too heal yourself from all the pain and anguish that a city can bring. When your mind gets cluttered with all the crap from everyday life, the only way to clear the mind and heal the body and soul, is too escape within Mother Nature, to get deep within her peace and serenity.

The Grandeur of the mountains in the background gives you the feeling of freedom, the openness of being in the kayak paddling in the water and taking in all that is around you, now you can just feel the stress melting from your body, as you feel lighter and paddle faster from the lightness. There is no better feeling than the stress leaving your body from all the ugliness within your everyday life. As we work our 9 to 5 jobs within this corporate world and being such a fast-paced society, where we need it now mentality comes into play, we really do not take the time to slow down and really look at what is around us anymore. Then you have these so-called Politicians who promise everything but deliver nothing, then add in the fact that some think they have all the answers to everything, but really are clueless and have no real answers to anything, makes for a lot of mixed feelings, cloudy judgments and real pain and hurt of which we all feel. With all this confusion truly shows how much we all need to get out and explore within Mother Nature, not just too see her beauty, but to get out and enjoy the true peace and serenity of this journey through life.

As we walk our paths through this journey and within this broken society, we all get so caught up in the ugliness, the hatred, and the chaos, too the point that we let the clouds of our judgments control of who we truly are, we become so comfortable within our own little ruts that we don’t get out to explore, simply because we don’t want any more pain and hurt coming to us, we try so hard to keep the ugliness at bay from us, that we forget just how much beauty this journey truly has and even when we do get out, because we have been so consumed with all the ugliness and chaos, we truly have no idea of how too really enjoy all the beauty around us, we still rush around thinking we have to be ahead of all else, even as there is nobody around us except for maybe some wildlife, who to them this beauty is their home. This journey through life has so much to offer and as we live within the cities, is just a small fraction of the journey, as we think we are seeing everything? The only way to see everything this journey has to offer is too get out and explore all the true beauty within Mother Nature, so we then can heal our mind, bodies, and souls, from all the corruption, the hatred, the ugliness and the chaos from within this broken society.

 

” To truly fix this broken society we all have to be on the same page and we all need to heal from the crap, to be of who we truly are”

” Paddling a kayak through the beauty of mother nature, there is really nothing better along this journey of life”

” We are so lucky in this country for the freedom that some have died fighting for, yet we forget this fact simply because we get so caught up in the ugliness”

” There are so many pro and cons to this journey that if we do not truly understand, we will never see all the true beauty all around us”

 

 

 

The quiet serenity of the journey

20170810_123212.jpg

The crisp cool air and the smooth waters, you can hear the paddle cutting through the water with each stroke, you embark on the water for the daily journey into the unknown. Life’s journey is full of unknowns as we walk our paths, but if you never get out and explore, you shall never uncover any of the unknowns and never truly experience any of the beauty that is truly around you.

Within this society, we all get so wrapped in, we forget that there is so much more to this journey, we get so wrapped up in the drama, the ugliness, and the hatred, that we then become someone for who we truly are not, with so much more to explore within this journey, we would clearly see that there is a whole different world out there, unlike what we see within the everyday parts of our lives.

Everything changes, we the people change, we need to be able to adapt to all the changes or this journey will leave us all behind. Some would rather be stuck within all drama and the hatred, simply because we think that is all there is? There are many little journeys within this big journey through life, if you never get out and explore, you will never find any of the little journeys, that will totally help you heal from all the pain and hurt from a society that does not really care for you. from reasons that are beyond me, most within this society will step on another’s shine and won’t even miss a step of their own. We take so much for granted in this society today, we forget to get out and explore all that is truly around us.

There are some out there that think they know everything and they have all the answers, seriously now nobody has all the answers except Jesus Christ, but even a few do not even think he is real, Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us, he showed us how to walk our paths as we show our love for one another and in the eyes of Jesus, there was never any hatred no matter of who you were. The hatred comes from us and is learned from us, we are our own worst enemies and we can fix this if we really wanted to, Jesus showed us how to walk our paths so we then can get to that path of righteousness, but we are so stubborn and so set in our ways, that we then can not see clearly enough through the clouds of our judgments.

When we take our vacations we then follow others as we go to places that are still full of chaos, ugliness, and hatred, then complain further that our vacation wasn’t really a vacation? We won’t even think of getting out to explore in places that have never been touched by man, simply because we have become so naive that, we think these places do not exist? These places are there and we just have to open our minds up to everything and not walk our paths with these blinders on from all that is around us. Some may not be able to get out as they suffer from a chronic illness that is out of their control, some may have suffered great pain and hurt from another, that keeps them hiding deep within and too scared to get out and explore, but if only we get out and explore the beauty within mother nature and the true beauty from places that have never been touched by man, we will never find the true peace and serenity that will heal us deeply from all the pain, the hurt and the sufferings from the world within this unforgiving society.

Let the paddle cut through the water as you move forward along the water, keep your eyes open as you never know what may be lurking in front of you, keep your ears open to all the sounds within nature, for you just might hear things that you have never heard before. We have become so accustomed to the sounds and scenery of the cities, that we have zero clues on the true sounds of nature, the only way to change that is to get out and explore, change the error of our ways, so we then can truly be of who we truly are and truly see all the beauty that is around us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Get a canoe or a kayak and get out within nature to explore the true beauty all around us”

” Never get too stuck within the error of your ways to the point you never get out and explore all that is around you”

” There is a lot more to this journey than all the ugliness, the corruption, the hatred, and the pain and hurt brought by all this”

” The true sounds of nature will heal and bring much-wanted peace and serenity to us all”

 

 

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”

 

 

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”

Uncharted Water’s

Through the uncharted water’s there is much uncharted land for which to explore and see all the true beauty that is within. At first glance it may not look that inviting? But when you look deeply within as you walk within the dense forest, you clearly see what is hiding deep within the forest, it’s true beauty and the heartbeat of Mother Nature. Land that is still untouched by man, land that the Wildlife roam free, land that in a lot of places you need a canoe or a kayak to get to, as there are no roads leading into it, which is why this land still holds it’s true beauty today.

Some within today’s society get so caught up within the cities, they have no idea of the true beauty around them, they have no idea that there is still uncharted land and water’s all around them, the only way to see this is, to really get out and explore all that is around you. We all work our 9 to 5’s, do our everyday chores, take vacations within our favorite places every year, instead off doing something different, we all get so caught up within the same routine, that we forget there is a far bigger world out there and even a world that, gets lost in the shuffle of life. There is so much to explore, that we don’t even try simply because, we don’t want to get away from the comfort zone we are currently within. Very true within this society we need to make money to survive, but while we are busy making that money, real life is passing us by. we go to our 9 to 5’s and in the process of us making money, we step on each other shine without even seeing at where we are stepping, only because we use each other to get ahead of each other, we think that this is the norm? But this is far from the norm and totally why there is so much ugliness and hatred all around us.

Then there are these ones who totally say what we want to hear, so they can get our votes and become our so called leader’s, as they then forget of what they said to us and only do as they wish for their own agendas? They bicker and attack their fellow constituents, as if we are not here…………. The people who not only put them in office, but the people who they actually work for. There are two parties within the walls of Washington DC, but the way they are all so divided, you would think there are many more than two? They totally think they are doing us all a favor by being in the walls of Washington DC, they really have no clue of how to do the proper job that they are suppose to do. But what they can not see is, the fact that their ideas are so whacked, but yet still push them on the rest of us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, but when we don’t get out and explore all the uncharted lands and the water, then we are not truly walking through this journey as we should be, we are becoming so stagnant that, we are getting in each others way, instead of helping and loving one another, as Jesus showed us when he came to us and walked his journey with us. There is so much more to this journey, but unless we get out and explore, we will never experience the more and only keep furthering, what we may think is all what this life holds.

” The uncharted waters and the uncharted lands, they are their for us to explore, to see the true beauty and keep moving forward better always”

” We are all so full of ourselves, we clearly can not see any good that is around us”

” The two party system does work, just that we can’t stop fighting with each other to truly see that it does work”

” With the true faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, the uncharted waters we shall see is there for us to explore and cleanse us of our pain and hurt”

Be prepared and ready for all that may cross your path

a pile of snow with a mountain in the background: APTOPIX Everest Death

The World’s highest peak that is mount Everest is a mere 29,029 feet, but what is even more important is the death zone of that mountain, the zone where you need to be prepared and totally know of what you are doing is 26,000 feet, at the death zone elevation is where anything can happen and you need to be hyper-vigilant of your surroundings at all times, not too mention what is happening to yourself in the way of elevation changes as well. There is no messing around hiking this mountain and at no time, should this mountain be used as a conversation piece to brag to others that, ” I have done something you haven’t”. even those in the most tip top shape have struggled hiking this mountain, simply because the elevation is the biggest factor in being totally prepared to hike this mountain.

Hiking this mountain and being above the 26,000 elevation mark is, kind of like a diver in the ocean going below a certain depth, the diver gets what is known as the Bends, when he surfaces he then has to get within a decompression chamber to decompress from the ” decompression sickness”, from ascending to quickly, even with the oxygen or the nitrogen in their tanks they still get this sickness, which is something that nobody climbing mount Everest even thinks about when they climb the worlds highest peak.

Right now the deaths on mount Everest is at an all time high and the Government of Nepal is not even thinking of making any changes to the rules? Right now if you show up with the $11,000 they will issue a permit to you, without even checking your mountaineering skills, or even the health condition of your present self, it is like all things today and about the money, especially for the small country of Nepal looking to survive within today’s world.

I put the blame squarely on all the social media platforms out there and the fact that people hike within areas without being totally prepared, just to gain a bigger presence on these platforms with more followers. Let’s look at a page on Facebook for instance, this page is called I hiked the 4,000 footers club in New Hampshire, this page has people posting pictures and bragging of their hike, with a lot of these hikers, not wearing the proper foot gear, or even carrying the proper equipment to be ready for whatever they may encounter, let’s go one step further here and the fact that, there is not enough adequate parking for all, so they park on the side of an interstate highway, just so they can put pictures up on their Facebook page or whatever social media platform they are using. Hiking anywhere within the white mountains of New Hampshire you need to be prepared for anything, especially the sudden changes in the weather, it can and will snow on the top of mount Washington in the summer and when you can’t find the trail because of the snow, then you need maybe a compass and even be able to see where you are just by looking at the sky, or just maybe remember your surroundings for the return trip. I noticed on my hikes a lot of times, people are looking in front of them for a trail marker and not looking at what is around them? What happens if that marker is not there for whatever reason? What do you do then? When you are above the tree line you see a pile of rocks, what are they? And what are they called? They are Carns and they mark the trail for you to follow.

This picture of the people climbing mount Everest, what is the biggest problem of this picture? If you said the line of people and being way to close to each other, you are 100% correct, because if one of them misstep and fall, now you have a domino effect of all going down and with the cliffs on both sides……………. Well with common sense you can see what is going to happen there. Even with the oxygen they are breathing from the tanks on their backs, that is still not enough at the altitude they are in, then you add in the fact that, when these people get to the top they want to take a ” selfie” and most definitely, they want people to see who they are in the picture, so they then take off the mask of oxygen for the picture, but they don’t realize that, even the seconds that the mask is off, is seconds to long at that elevation. Your body at that elevation is already changing and parts of the body is shutting down, because we are not cut out for this type of rigorous endeavor, no matter how much in shape you think you are? Just like all the deaths happening on mount Everest, there are deaths happening in the white mountains of New Hampshire, simply because people are embarking on these hikes without being properly prepared, for what ever might cross their paths, whether it’s the proper foot gear, to enough water to stay hydrated, or even the proper snacks for protein, or even carrying the right gear in the pack, just in case your stuck in a weather condition that changes drastically, no matter what the hike, you need to be well prepared and ready for anything that you may encounter along your path, of any journey you embark on.

” Be prepared is the biggest of the Boy Scout’s motto and something we all need to adhere to within the journey of life”

” A traffic jam of people on the worlds tallest peak, is something that should never be and dangerous for all stuck within the traffic jam”

” Just because you have $11,000 should never be all it takes to hike the worlds tallest peak”

” Social media platforms are being used in a way they were never designed to be used, because we the people misuse everything we touch without thinking through the ramifications of our actions”
