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”

Escape within the beauty of Mother Nature

The quiet serenity and beauty all around you, that is exactly what escaping within Mother Nature is all about. Leaving the daily grind even if it is for a short time, it is time much needed with all the drama and ugliness within the daily grind. Camping season is right around the corner and having reservations for a camp site on Memorial weekend, I simply can not wait to unwind and totally relax within the beauty of Mother Nature.

The beach in this picture may be a bit rocky, but it is a beach that you can enjoy all to yourself, a beach to sit and watch the Eagles fly by and on occasion, swoop down into the water for it’s daily meal. Then there is the Loon swimming by as it sings back and forth with other Loons, what a beautiful sound to just sit and relax, as you listen to them in their habitat. Then if your lucky enough without being to noisy, a friendly Moose will come out of the woods to the lake shore, for a drink and a bath. Now let’s not forget all the different sounds you hear within woods behind you, some sounds you would normally never hear within the daily grind, Mother Nature is pure beauty and never ever forget!!! You are now within the homes of the animal kingdom, which you need to respect, just like you would want others to respect your home as they come to visit you.

As quiet as this picture is, it is really this quiet as you sit on this rocky beach in person, while you sit in your comfy chair on this beach and take in all the beauty around you, you will actually feel the stress of the daily grind leave your body, the clouds of your judgment, will become clear as you look out within the beauty, the transition from the daily grind, to the beauty of Mother Nature is the most beautiful thing and we all need more of it.

When you take to the outdoors and within the beauty of Mother Nature, you also have to explore and see things you never will see within the daily grind, when I lived in the great state of Colorado, I had a 4×4 pick up and would venture in the back country and as high as 13,000 feet on a mountain, the beauty I would come across would take your breathe away, plus from time to time, come across a few Ghost towns, dating back in time from the gold rush days, I would stop and get out of the truck to walk around these towns, as I then would gain a big respect for those of our past, seeing that a lot of the buildings were still standing strong today. I would also come across some animals I would never see otherwise as they lived within the high country, like the Doll sheep, and the Ram sheep, even mountain lion and antelope, plus some pretty big bull Elk, it is so beautiful to see these kind of animals in their elements. I came across this herd of Ram sheep one time, as some where actually ramming each other with the horns, I must say I was getting a headache watching this, as in the daily grind you would never get a chance to see this at all.

There is so much to the beauty of Mother Nature and unless you get out and explore this beauty, you will never see or witness this beauty, from the daily grind that we all get caught up within. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all become too programmed within our daily grinds, to the point that some never get out to see the true beauty of Mother Nature, When you think about it……………. That is too sad because, we then become too tense and have no idea of what truly relaxing really is. When we are too tense that is when we bring all the ugliness we see today to each other, we then think that this is the norm? This is not truly of who we are, who we truly are…………….. Are people with love in our hearts that keeps us warm inside, when we become too tense, we then never truly feel the warmth of this love and then never share it with each other. The warmth of the love within your heart, is Jesus Christ our savior and his love for us, he loves us all deeply and equally, no matter of who you are, we within today’s daily grind, never give ourselves a chance to truly feel this love, as we become so engulfed, within the ugliness and hatred of today.

” Escape to the beauty of mother nature, to truly relax and get back in touch with the warmth of love within your heart from Jesus Christ”

” The rocky beach at first glance may look rough, but it’s true beauty will surround you with plenty of peace and serenity”

” The sounds of mother nature will totally relax you, as the stress of the daily grind will melt from your mind, body and soul”

” It may be a ghost town now, but at one point it was a bustling little town, full of joy, happiness and love”

The Hatred runs so deep within this Society

My little buddy with his message for us all, totally needs to come back to remind us all, that we are not about this hatred that is around us, just that we have let it consume us so much, that we have lost total sight of who we truly are.

This Smollett case and the way it is being swept under the rug, is totally setting the wrong example for us all moving forward. It is not about having enough money so you can buy your way out of anything, what you need to do beyond having empathy and compassion is, look deeper into what you see beyond your actions, then maybe you shall see that you are not only hurting yourself, but you are hurting all that are around you, with the actions you take. We all want to make our lives through this journey better with each step, but when our steps are on the top of others steps, now you are invading another ones steps and bringing harm to them, as you move forward like nothing at all.

Hatred right now is controlling us all through this journey, it is controlling us so much, it has us all taking action without thinking through the ramifications of our actions, it has us all being blinded by the clouds of our judgments, which now we are all in the deep darkness of this hate, without seeing any light in front of us along our paths.

With this Smollett case, the facts clearly point out he had an agenda, with this agenda he wanted to further spread the hate of anybody wearing a M. A. G. A. hat, by having these two brothers beat him for wearing a M. A. G. A. hat, to simply try to cram his agenda, right down the throats of each one of us, without having a care for anybody around him. He says he was unhappy with the $60,000+ dollars he was getting per episode, on the show he was on? What about the millions of others that are scraping by on what they make and that’s with most working two and three jobs. Sometimes in life as we walk our paths through this journey, it is not about who you know and expect them to help you out of a jam that you created, you need to get yourself out of the jam you created, so you than can fix what you need to fix, to move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

We all have our struggles, nobody is perfect either, we all go through so much and with others bringing to us things we don’t ask for, makes for much pain and hurt coming to us as well, we then take that pain and bury it deep within ourselves to try to escape the hurt it brings, which we then become someone for who we truly are not. When we become someone we are not, we then get consumed by all the hate that is around us and further the hate, instead of trying to be better than that, by letting the hate pass, without it hurting us and turning us bitter to all that is around us. It doesn’t pay to let the hate consume us, as not only do we bring much pain and hurt to ourselves, we bring much pain and hurt to each other, which does nothing but turn this into a divided society, then keeps us from walking our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

” There is something fishy in the city of Chicago, I think they need to bury the fish to stop the stink, for us all to see the freshness of this journey”

” Nothing good ever comes out of hatred, we need to learn the error of our ways, to move forward better and stronger”

” We the people are our own worst enemy, from us comes the hatred and from us we can bring the peace as well”

” When something is swept under the rug, it is only hidden for a short time, then when it rears its ugly head it can be even worse if we only took care of it sooner”

The Ugliness is from we the People

” There is always light at the end of all the darkness, we just have to get through the darkness to truly see the light”

We all walk a path through this journey of life, so to did Jesus when he came here with us, Jesus saw all the ugliness we brought to each other, but he stayed true to himself and showed his love for us all, with every step of his journey. We the people are what’s wrong with this Society, as we will stop at nothing to bring this ugliness to each other with our actions.

Way back when Adam took that forbidden fruit is when the ugliness of sin started, which we have never learned through all these years, that ugliness is bad and only keeps that wedge buried deep between us all, until we all truly feel the love that Jesus showed us, that the same love is deep within us as well, we will never change and the darkness of all the ugliness, will forever hang over all our heads. When we truly feel this love within us and then share it with each other, that is when the darkness over head will disappear and we all can truly see the light, which will bring us to the path of righteousness, so we all can be at peace and happiness with each step of this journey.

We all start this journey very much the same way and no one is any different from another, okay we may have a different color, gender, or even religion, but these difference are what makes us unique to each other, it is just we have never learned to use the uniqueness the proper way, even after Jesus came here with us and showed us all. As we grow into this Society, there are plenty of ways along our paths for us to learn properly, but instead we attack one another in any way we can. Just like a school Bully will try to control us, we do the same to each other, when one looks a bit different, or maybe slow or challenged as we grow up as a child, we then mock and make fun of that person, showing no empathy or compassion for that person, we don’t think of that person at all, we only think of ourselves and how we look towards others if we don’t follow along. God forbid when that person gets hurt physically, then we proceed to laugh and make fun of even more, this is not of who we truly are, but it is who we have become over the years, because we have never learned by the error of our ways.

Now within this Society of great technology, with all the social media and the news media whether print or what we see on the television, we have created such great drama with all these gadgets we have in our hands, it has made it even easier to further all the ugliness, simply because we can hide behind these gadgets, without facing what we fear most in this society and that is, we fear the confrontation of each other above everything else around us. We have forgotten just how to simply talk to each other face to face, a lot of this comes from the Political correction we let in to our lives, we become offended very easily because this correction has weakened us so, through this political correction we have lost the ability to respect and have dignity of one another, which furthers the ugliness and makes the darkness even darker, with no light in sight.

With the light comes peace and when we are at peace, we are happy as we walk our paths of this journey. First we have to get over ourselves, even with all the technology we have, we really are not as smart as we think we are, everything we do we think we do it better than each other, we get so caught up within our own heads and our own little world, we then let the clouds of our judgments, simply cloud all our actions we may take. Just look within the walls of Washington DC, all these Individuals show nothing but ugliness and hate, we are going to have a Presidential election coming up in 2020 and already the Democrats and the Republicans are attacking one another. They have already turned the most powerful position on the land into one, with no respect or dignity, they have turned the office of President into nothing but a Hollywood celebrity contest, this next election is already shaping up into a three ring circus show, with zero respect for the office they are running for, we the people need to be smarter, we need to vote smarter and end all this corruption and hate, that flows within the walls of Washington DC.

We all have our troubles, but when we don’t fix those troubles properly, this is when we bring the troubles to each other, which furthers the ugliness around us. Through all this ugliness shows just how dumb we have become through the years of our existence, you would think we would of become smarter by now, we will never become any smarter as we keep attacking each other, as we mock and make fun of each other with each step, it really does not matter what part of this planet you are from, or who you may think you are, we are all Humans walking a path through this journey, the journey may have a lot to deal with, but when we do it correctly and while we truly feel the love of Jesus within us, then share that love with each other, this is how we make the journey feel easier, while the ugliness disappears and true peace and happiness comes to us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The hatred comes from the ugliness we the people bring to the society, we need more love to truly be of who we are”

” Technology is supposed to be better and make this journey easier for all, but we have totally gone the opposite way from it’s intention”

” We the people started this ugliness, we the people can end this ugliness as well”

Life is not about buying your way into a status………….

I get the fact that each generation through this society, should be better than the one of the past, but at what cost are we really paying, when we buy our way into anything, without working hard and paying the dues as we should? With this latest scandal of the paying big money to get your child into an elite college, who are the ones really being hurt here? It’s the ones that were rejected because someone paid big dollars to get their child in, without even working hard to be accepted into that college. The ones that were rejected may have just done everything right and everything as they should, but because someone has money, doesn’t give them the right to jump ahead of the pack, just to give their child the prestige, or the right to claim a higher status over their Peers.

Going to college wherever that may be, should be respectful and full of knowledge, for whom ever the person is that is going. College should yes be a fun time for any student, as well as teach our children, just how to work hard and when you work hard, life will reward you with big rewards. You think those children whose Parents bought their way into the elite college, will work hard for their knowledge? Exactly!!! They are going to think that you can buy anything in life, plus they are going to party everyday, instead of working hard to achieve great things, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

I agree we all deserve some breaks from time to time, but only because you have worked hard for what you have, or for where you are? But when you buy your way into something only means one thing and one thing only, you simply have cheated the system and robbed someone else, for trying to help themselves and move forward, so they to can live the dream and earn respect with every step. We all have dreams, we all have hopes, but when you buy into something, now your shattering all hope and destroying any dreams away from another, while you are only thinking of yourself and no other.

Life doesn’t have to be about any status, nor does it have to be about money, although………… Yes you need money to pay the bills and live, but really now, life really is about being happy, peaceful and sharing your love and compassion with each other. the money is only extracurricular and by no means do we truly need it, just that in this society full of greed, we have come to attached to it, which has divided us, instead of bringing us together within the love and joy, that Jesus Christ brought to each of us everyday. Money may buy us material things, money may help us cheat and jump ahead of each other, but money will never buy true happiness, money will never buy us love, as love is already within each of us, we can’t take the money with us when we depart this journey, so why are we so hell bent on trying to acquire all the money?

” The only status in life that should matter, is your status with Jesus Christ, to keep the faith with great hope always”

” Instead of trying to show off to others with our wealth, may we try showing off Jesus Christ , for the true love and happiness always”

” College is good to be there for the right reasons, but not just to achieve a status”

When the view becomes obstructed

Sometimes our view of whatever we are looking at becomes obstructed, we can’t see clearly enough to pass a correct judgment, so we then make up any judgment that we think will be okay and for us, to move forward in a way we think we are better for it. This journey through life has many obstructions and at times we get frustrated which then has us not thinking through our actions, when we do this we just don’t hurt ourselves, we hurt all those around us as well, when all we simply have to do is, think and see through anything, before we actually take the action, so we all can be spared any real pain and hurt,

Most of the time we don’t want to see clearly as to spare us any pain and hurt, but this journey through life comes in what is known as a life cycle and just like any cycle, everything revolves in a circle, while yes it may be away from us, but eventually like all circles, it will come around once again. This is why we all need to see through and see clearly everything, making our future actions more informed, saving us from any pain and hurt that we really need not feel.

This journey through life may have a lot of elements to it, but when managed properly, these elements will help us walk peacefully along our paths of this journey. Sometimes these life events will come to us and try to control and disrupt our lives, this makes it very easy to not look clearly at what we are looking at, just so we can try to control any pain and hurt from effecting us so, we then hide deeply within ourselves as if we become invisible to all that is around us, this only compounds the pain and hurt further, which when the pain becomes to much, will then come to the surface like an explosion that rocks us to the point we can not handle. Anything in life when managed properly can be handled easily, just that we have to clear the weeds from our sight, to see more clearly all that is around us, then we can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

Look deeply into what you see, let your true feelings keep you in tune to all that is around you, so when the different cycles of life come a knocking, you will be ready, willing and able to deal with them properly, as you stay in control, without them controlling you. When we see clearly of all that is around you, we than can act properly , which will help us see through our actions, before we take the action, saving us all from the pain, the hurt and the sorrow, as we then walk our paths peacefully throughout this journey of life. With the pain and hurt we become to rash with our decisions and our actions, we react without thinking of the reactions, which then has us becoming way too negative and forces us come up with any solution, instead of the proper solution. Jesus came to us and showed us just how to walk our paths of this journey, so we all than can find that true path of righteousness, as we all live in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, without any of the ugliness we see around us today.

” Look deeply into what you see, to think of the reaction before you take the action”

” We all hurt from much pain and a lot of the pain can be avoided if we only saw more clearly before we react to what we think we saw”

” The journey of life has many elements, but when managed properly the elements never become to big too handle”

” All circles are connected with links, with wear and tear links become weak and break, why we need to see clearly to replace all broken links to be better and stronger”

The journey of Lent/Daylight savings

As the days become longer with the light of day and as we walk this journey through Lent, we now know that the season of camping is right around the corner, the season for us all to escape the daily grind and venture to the out doors, where Mother Nature is ready to show us her true beauty. Primitive camping where you pitch a tent and as you lay down to sleep within your sleeping bag, now you can listen to the heart beat of the Earth, listen to all the nightly sounds, like an owl waking from their sleep as they only can see clearly at night, maybe if your lucky you can hear the whispers of the night or maybe a nearby stream will comfort you to sleep with it’s running water?

With your camp site all set up and the camp fire ready for the night sky, you now can plan your day for tomorrow, maybe a hike up a mountain to see as far as you can from the summit of the mountain and as you walk up the trail, you may see some scenes you will never see within the daily grind. Yes it is true a hike can be a lot of work, but it is work much different than the daily grind, it is work that can relax you in the right frame of mind, let alone that it will help clear your mind from all the ugliness that comes with being within a society full of much ugliness. To escape within Mother Nature is a great way to unwind and totally feel the stress melt from your body. We within this ugly society and through the dark days of Winter, let way too much effect us and let all the ugliness consume us to the point that, we become bitter to all that is around us, we forget that there is a whole lot more to this journey of life than, what we see in our daily grind. Yes we all need a paycheck to pay the bills and survive in our lives, but we become so consumed with that…………. we then totally forget to take some ” me” time to unwind and cure our mind, body and soul, so we can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

Within this picture is so much peace and serenity, when you sit by the fire and take it all in, look out within the beauty in front of you, you can actually feel the stress leave your body and as the stress leaves you, now you can actually hear all that is around you, listen to the sweet sounds of the different wildlife around you, even hear the fish jump out of the water, hear the Eagles soar by with the greatest of ease, the loons chatting back and forth from a far, not too forget the many different birds singing their tunes throughout the echoes of the sky. There is so much beauty around you, you then forget of the daily grind and even though just for a short time, it is time you now can heal yourself from all the ugliness, heal yourself from what consumes you through the dark Winter days, so now you can clear the clouds from your judgments and totally heal your mind, body and soul from the stress of the daily grind.

Let’s not forget that when you escape to the beauty of Mother Nature, you are now within the home of many other different life forms on this planet, just like we live in our homes and we would hate for others to come in and disrupt our homes, we are now within the homes of so many animals within nature, like bear, moose, deer etc…. So as you set your camp always remember to respect their home, as we would want others to respect ours. Leave no trace while you are there and when you depart back to the daily grind, when you leave no trace when you leave, then you can come back to still more beauty, as Mother Nature is constantly changing with all within it. The plant life, the tree’s and even the animals, change all the time, just like we grow from our young ages, so does all within Mother Nature and it is a beautiful thing, to escape within nature and witness all the beautiful changes. Sometimes the changes to nature comes from violent weather, or maybe fire, but through these kind of changes, it may take some time, but the beauty does come back, for us all to enjoy once again. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with one of the great perks of this journey, is the taking of some time, to get out and escape the daily grind, to really enjoy the beauty of Mother nature, to be at peace and happiness with ourselves and as we then heal ourselves, to get back in touch with the love within us, so we than can share that love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Daylight savings may have us dread the loss of an hour, but we do gain more daylight to enjoy the great outdoors”

” Earth has a heart beat just like we do as well, mother nature has it’s beauty as do we as well”

” camping season is the chance for us all to escape the daily grind and relax to heal ourselves from the ugliness and see the true beauty of this journey”

” Mother nature has so much beauty within it, you can clearly see it all when you look deeply within what you see”

The choices from the happenings don’t have to define where we go

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, the paths are not always smooth or paved, a lot of times things happen to us along this journey, things we can’t explain or change, these happenings do not have to define us, nor do they have to dictate of where we are going through this journey, the choice is yours to make in order to walk your paths with confidence, walk your paths to be better and stronger, so as your path before you may look rocky or a bit out of source, the choice is yours to make in order to navigate along your path as best you can, so you yourself can dictate this journey the best way you can and make the path as smooth as you can.

We are all part of a Society that they to walk their paths of this journey, yes we do meet at the crossroads, but we don’t have to follow them and we can blaze out our own paths as best we can, so we than do not get caught up in all the ugliness like we see today throughout this society. Our inner strength comes from that child within us and when we don’t let that child grow correctly, then we lose that inner strength, which then has us become weak and unable to protect ourselves properly from all harm, which then has us all becoming so consumed within all the ugliness we see today. This does not mean we are better than each other, just that some may try to make others think that they are? Which then has us like…………… Thinking that whatever we do is wrong, but on the contrary, there is no wrong along this journey through life, especially if we walk our paths as best we can, without forcing ourselves on each other, without harming each other or bringing great pain to each other, when we respect each other, when we show love toward each other, then no matter of the path you take, we all will find that path of righteousness that Jesus showed us along his journey here with us, the path of righteousness is the path where there is no evil, no ugliness and that path where we all love one another as Jesus loved us, when he came to us and walked here with us.

This is the start of the 40 day journey of Lent, that same journey Jesus walked to not only show his love for us, but to show us all that there is a way around the ugliness and walk this journey in peace and happiness always. The choice is always ours to make, when we make the right choices, then the path that seems rough at first glance, will then become better, not that the terrain becomes smoother, but because we ourselves will see everything much better, because we than do not look at everything as evil. When we see everything as tough and evil, then Satan will sense this this and then the evil and ugliness will seem to grow around us, the choice is ours to make along our paths of this journey, the time is now along this 40 day journey of Lent, to make all the right choices, so we can end all the evil and ugliness, to move forward in love, peace and happiness always, as our Savior Jesus Christ showed us, along his journey here with us, throughout this journey of life.

” 40 day journey of lent for us all to renew and make better our paths of this journey through life”

” All paths have their degree of difficulty, its we who make the difficult less of to make the paths better as we walk”

” The paths and the happenings along the paths never have to dictate where we are going along the paths”

As Jesus walked this journey, so do we

” How can you say to your brother, Brother let me remove that splinter in your eye, when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?

*** LK 6:42a***

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and as we enter into the forty day journey of Lent, let us remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, showing just how deeply he loved us, while he to walked this journey, showing us all that yes, we to can share our love within, with each other.

Basically this quote talks of, before we can reach out to help another, we first need to help ourselves and over come all that we may be going through and struggling through. If you want to pull that splinter out of your brothers eye, then first clear the obstruction from your own, so you than can see clearly of what you are doing and as you see clearly, then the clouds of your judgments, will then be gone as the love within you, will then not only comfort you, but comfort your brother, as you remove the splinter, so he to can see clearly along this journey of life.

We all have our issues as we walk our paths of this journey, but yet we always see the faults of others and never see any faults of our own, we are always quick to point the finger towards others, but never point the finger at ourselves and accept any blame for whatever we do, others will surely pick up on our faults before we even recognize them ourselves. We are all guilty of this behavior, but we will never admit to any faults we may have.

A lot of times these faults will bring us great shame, shame that brings us great pain and when we hurt deeply inside, we then bury these faults deep within, so we than can try to move forward like there is nothing holding us back. So as we do this, we than never look at our own faults, instead we point out the faults of others, which then will stop us from truly getting to know one another, only forcing us to look at each other superficially, without truly looking deeply at what we see. There is always more than what we may see initially, just that we don’t truly want to see, cause then it will make us look deeper into ourselves.

Jesus as he walked this journey with us, showed us all that when we stay true to ourselves, truly feel our feelings within and feel the warmth of his love within us, then we to can not only love ourselves, but love all those around us, without any evil or unwanted thoughts. Nobody ever wants to show any fault, as this will bring out weakness and within a broken society as we are currently in, then any weakness will bring us more shame and pain, which we then will be open to becoming a victim of any kind, furthering the pain for which we already have.

Weakness brings pain and in a society of fakness, weakness makes you vulnerable over those who pretend to be strong, as they then seem to be more powerful than they really are. We never want to admit to our faults, so we than can bury them and seem strong to those around us, while we then point the finger of fault on those around us. We are all guilty of pointing the finger of blame, which does nothing but deflect any blame from ourselves, so we then never fix what we need to fix, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

So as we walk yet another Lenten journey, let us do so as Jesus did these next forty days, let us sacrifice as Jesus did for us, as we truly get back in touch with our true feelings, unbury those faults as we work to fix what we need to fix, then we can truly move forward better and stronger and treat each other with respect, to keep our dignity, showing our true love for each other, then we can walk confidently on our paths, through this journey of life.

” Lets walk this journey of lent and sacrifice as Jesus did for us, to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Faults can only be fixed when we stay true to who we are, without burying them like they are nothing but dirty laundry”

” The journey of lent is a forty day journey, to get back to who we truly are, to become better and stronger moving forward”

” Our issues do not have to define us on our paths, they should help us to be better and stronger moving forward”

Good decision/bad decision



We all walk through this journey of life, the journey is all the same, but through the decisions we make on the paths we chose, we all may find that the journey is different for each of us, but as we get caught up within these decisions, it is our perception that is what makes the journey seem so different. We can all look at the same thing, but through our perception of that something, we will all see that thing very differently, that is a fact of life and one of those true facts we take so for granted.

We make decisions everyday of our lives, some decisions we make very easy, as others we procrastinate and take time to make, some decisions we make through the clouds of our judgments, as we don’t think through the reaction, before we take the action. Sometimes the decisions are clearly of common sense, but within this society where we lack the common sense, then we make the decision without thinking through the decision, which then has us back peddling, instead of moving forward along this journey.

We work our whole lives to build up a good self image of not just ourselves, but a good self image for those to perceive us by, then in a blink of an eye, or with one bad decision, that self image is destroyed, bringing us lower than we were, before we even did any building at all. this is the part of life we all dread, that part of life that we all slip on the thin ice around us and then fall through the cracks of the journey, leaving us submerged in the chilly wet water, then as we go into damage mode and try to warm up and dry ourselves off from the fall, as all those around us then perceive us in a very different light.

This journey through life has many decisions for each of us, decisions that can weaken us, or make us stronger as we move forward throughout this journey. Without common sense these decisions can and will bring us down, especially if we don’t think through the decision, before we take action on the decision. These decisions should never take control of us, nor should they ever be our destiny either. We should be the master of our own destiny and by doing that, we should always think through the decision, before we take the action of the decision. The best way to be able to take control of our destiny is, to never lose sight of our common sense, never bury that common sense so deep within, that we then forget that it is within us. This journey through life really doesn’t have to be that hard, but it is we who make it hard, when we make bad decisions, because we didn’t use our common sense, nor did we think through the decision, before we acted on the decision.

” Common sense isn’t too common within this society, only because each one of us is responsible for that”

” We have to live with whatever decisions we make, so why not think through the decision and make the most of every decision”

” To perceive what we see, is not truly of what we are looking at”

” The thin ice of this journey is only from the bad decisions we make for not thinking through the decision before we take action”
