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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

” No more hurting people……………peace”

*** Martin Richards***

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

America the Beautiful

” In giving we receive, Love one another as I have loved you”

John 15:12

 

”            * O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

* To be understood as to understand,

* To be loved as to love,

* For it is in giving that we receive,

* It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

* It is in dying that we are born to eternal life

Saint Francis of Assisi

 

 

America is so beautiful, but if spend all your time within the cities of America and not venture out to where the hands of Mankind are not, you really haven’t truly been living, as you walk your path of this journey through life. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some beauty within the cities, but the beauty in places where Mankind has never touched and where Mother Nature has roamed free, to purify God’s beautiful creation, now your truly seeing what true beauty is and that true beauty, is also deep within our hearts and souls, just that within this troubled society, we don’t let it out for others to see, as we only hide it deeper within, to keep it from all the ugliness around us today.

Now with that said, we of this society are so consumed with all the hatred and ugliness all round us, that we just can not see any true beauty for wherever we look. Most of why we are so consumed I place the blame squarely on the left bias media of today, their only agenda that matters is, to bring us as much hatred and drama as they can, so hopefully we don’t see anything else around us? We the People of this society are just as much to blame, as we let this happen and take no action against their so called news, or for better words, ” Fake news Media”. These media types call themselves Journalists, but yet they have no clue on how to write from the heart and let real words flow from their brains, to their fingers and onto the keyboard, as they type their so called stories. They would rather go to a Press Conference, ask their dumb and stupid questions, then take the words of response and twist them around, so it will fit into their drama ridden agendas. The left bias Media is a big problem within this society and we the People, need to wake up and totally see through all their crap and end their drama ridden free reign of the spoken word.

The other problem we have within this society is the fact that, these so called Politicians that get voted into office by we the people, will say all that we want to hear so they can get our votes and become elected, then after they are in, they turn their backs on those that elected them, just so they can back stab and manipulate the system for themselves, as they totally lose sight of all true reality around them. Right now the entire Democratic party is so far in Denial, that none of them have a clue of what true reality is, these people hate so much of our President, that they can not even recognize him as being the President of the United States and that is sad, when you have a President elected by the people and our other leaders can’t even call him a President? President Trump has been our President for just under two years, but yet he has done a whole lot more for the American people, than that other guy (Barrack Obama) has done in his eight years combined. I will give Barrack Obama credit for one thing only………. and that is, he was a better communicator and could speak well, without being rough around the edges with his words. Even with the ” Witch Hunt” investigation going on, President Trump continues to work hard and achieve a lot of good for our economy, but yet nothing has really come out of this investigation? Well I am calling out those of this investigation and seriously think about investigating further, not only the Clinton foundation, but the Clinton’s in general, in the way they have corrupted everything in their wake. It is time the investigation spends our tax dollars more wisely and actually do their jobs, instead of simply wasting all the hard earned money of the tax payer, on something that is nothing but a ” Witch Hunt”.

The other biggest thing that needs to be totally addressed is, the topic of   “Illegal” Immigration. If you are knowingly doing something Illegal and those around you keep slapping you on the hand, but yet you keep knowingly doing it, there is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, without sweeping it further under the rug. Mexico has a border wall on the other side of their country to keep out the riff raff, so why can’t we Americans have a border wall, so we can further protect the interests of all Americans? Don’t get me wrong, I do know that America was built on Immigration, but immigration done the correct way, without the word ” illegal” before the word of immigration. With the most recent news stories of fellow Americans being murdered at the hands of ” Illegal”Immigrants being so sad, so just how much of this has to happen, before our so called Leaders wake up from their dream world and simply get back in touch with true reality. I totally get the fact that others of other countries have their issues and want to find a better life for their families, but we here in America have our issues as well and the biggest one is, to totally revamp our Immigration policies and put and end to the word ” Illegal ” in front of the word Immigration, so we all can walk our paths, not just as safe as we can, but within true peace and happiness always.

This coming November is going to be one of the biggest and most important elections of my lifetime and if we screw this one up, America just may go in a direction, that we all will not like. True there may be some Democrats out there that are fair, balanced and totally in touch with reality, but I haven’t seen one yet? So with that said and being an Independent, I just may never vote Democrat until they come out of the denial of which they are in? Plus I am in total favor of term limits for all within the walls of Washington D. C. time to not just drain the swamp of corruption, but putting and end to those within our Government becoming to comfortable and set in their ways, so they can further their agendas, while they totally forget about those of who put them into their office they are in? We all here in America work hard and pay our taxes in this country, it is time we get rewarded for our hard work and not being taken advantage of or forgotten, like those so called leaders are doing now. We have a president in place right now that can do the job and so far he has proved he can do it, so this November, let’s reward him with the right candidates, so he can further his work of, ” Making America Great”. The time is now to fix what we need to fix, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” Drain the swamp is not the walking through the muck to clean the swamp land, it is about fixing the swamp of corruption within the walls of Washington D. C.”

” The true beauty of America is all around us, time we see through all the crap and totally see all the true beauty that is around us”

” When the word Illegal comes before anything, you are doing something wrong and need to fix what you are doing”

” Washington D. C. is flooded within the swamp of corruption, time to clean up the swamp for the good of all”

” When there is an investigation that has no base and goes no where, time to end the investigation and move on to something else”

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

Romans 8:14

 

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

Habakkuk 1:5

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

The Clouds of constant Change…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Just as the clouds in the sky change, so do we change, things around us change, circumstances change, fashions change, but through change done correctly, change can make us all better and stronger moving forward”

*** Bowlingchef***

 

With each passing storm, to the clear blue sky, the clouds will change into many formations even as we gaze into the wild blue yonder. Change will affect us in many ways, whether being positive or negative, but even through negative change, when we adapt properly to the change, we can change the change into a positive, to move forward better and stronger.

Very true when we are set in our ways, it makes us struggle to accept any change, we become depressed, we become very negative of everything around us, we get angry of everything, then stew within our own anger, but the biggest thing we do is, even without realizing of what we are doing, we lose focus of who we truly are, we become lost along our paths of this journey through life, then we through the depression part we make ourselves sick, of which we then let it affect the way we treat others.

A lot of times we have no control over change, which is the biggest thing that we tend to not accept of it, especially within this broken society, when we lose control of anything, we then become angry of anyone and everything around us. But if only we take the change in moderation, learn to accept it as it comes and then fix what we need to fix, so we than can accept and let the change flow as natural as it may, so we can walk our paths of this journey, as smoothly as we can.

The journey of life is not always smooth or walked down a prim rose path, it will throw you many curve balls, as you need to learn to adjust your swing, to hit the ball out of the park. The journey will have many bumps along the paths, that will bruise you and knock you down, but the best way of healing yourself from the pain and hurt of the knockdown is, all about the way you get up from the fall and keep moving forward along your path of this journey through life. Being able to adjust and adapt to any kind of change, will go along way toward reaching your destination of this journey and for most, the destination is to reach the path of righteousness, for which Jesus taught us, when he came to us and showed us how to walk our paths through this journey of life.

There is a big difference between right and wrong and when we are out of focus, because we let change take our focus away, we then lose our direction as we try to reach our destination along our paths, which is reaching the path of righteousness. Within this broken Society only proves, that many have lost their focus along their paths, which has us all walking in circles instead of in any certain direction, it is easy to just make a choice, but when that choice is either right or wrong and within the clouds of our judgments, shows just how easy it is to become lost within this journey. Which then takes away the peace and happiness, of all our paths, through this journey of life.

 

” As the clouds form, so do we within all the changes all around us”

” The changes of life do not have to define us, if only we keep the focus along this journey though life”

” The journey of life is not always full of roses and smooth as silk, but with our focus and within proper change, we can be as peaceful and happy as we want to be”

” As we walk our paths correctly accepting change, we will find true peace and happiness”

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am calling you all out!!!!!!

” There shall be no night there,…… And they shall reign forever and ever”

Revelation 22:5

Hope for today:

” We can not cling to the success or failures of the past, each new day brings a new opportunity to live for Christ, to share his gospel and to build his kingdom, let’s be about our Father’s business”

Billy Graham

 

 

Now if we all took the Robin Williams approach to walking our paths through this journey of life, then just maybe this society would be a lot better for all? This was a man…… Who was hurting real pain deep inside himself, but yet had decided to through his humor, make the rest of us forget about the pain within us all. Robin Williams was blessed with the talent to truly entertain us all, whether it was comedy, or a movie like ” Dead Poet’s Society”, which for me was the best of all his movies. Robin Williams was truly sent from God for the benefit of us all, as he entertained us ( while he himself hurt deeply inside), so the rest of us can find relief from our pain, even if it was for a short time.

It is so sad that, we of this Society will go to any length to bring so much pain toward each other, that we as an Individual have lost totally the true feelings of, love and empathy that is within us all. When one fails at attempting something they are not used to, others will make fun of those failures instead of praising him to keep trying, which leads to many that will always quit, or never even try to make an attempt at something new. Then there are those that are very talented to play a sport, as they then turn professional and receive huge money to simply play a game.

Life within the National Football League is so screwed up today, simply because………. One has started a new thing of, taking a knee in protest, while disrespecting not just a song, not just a flag, but those who have died defending that flag, so the rest of us can live peacefully and as free as we want to be, doing whatever we want to do. Now with that said………. Through the whole off season of the NFL, there was not one Knee taker doing anything about whatever they were protesting to begin with, but now as the first pre-season  game has been played, they start back at taking a knee? The Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys said it best, ” Football is not the time or the place for anything, other than playing the game of Football”, I agree totally and now have much more respect for Zak Prescott.

Most of us all stop what we normally do on Sunday’s, to watch the game of football the game, not the game of football being a politically ridden agenda, of whatever the flavor of the week may be for their protests. Let’s look deeper and put it a little different, we all go to our jobs each day, we work for a corporate company correct? What would happen to us if we decide to stand on a soap box and bring protest to our jobs? Correct……… We would be fired for not doing our job as we should be doing, well an NFL team is owned by an owner and that Owner buys the team for one thing and that is to make good on his investment, so in essence the NFL team is a corporate company, that pays it’s employee’s to do a job and not stand on, or take a knee in protest. Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy winning the game, football is not a game of protest and nor do the fans watch the game just for the protest, we watch to see a great game of different strategies, being played by not just an employee of a team, but a well trained and talented athlete, that’s true focus is on winning the game and nothing more, which to me there is one more focused on winning a game, each and every game, he has proved it more than once and that Athlete is, the quarterback of the New England Patriots………. Tom Brady.

There may be some that call Tom Brady a ” cheater”? Really!!! Then I shall call you fat, dumb and stupid, simply because you are too lazy to put in the work each and every day as Tom Brady does, to be the best at whatever it is you do. Whether off season or in season, Tom works very hard every day, so he can be as good as he needs to be and his winning ways proves just that. My challenge to all those who feel the need to protest within the NFL is, try working as hard as Tom Brady, focus 100% on the game of football, so just maybe you can be a true Champion, as the G.O.A.T of the NFL…….. Tom Brady already is, forget about the outside crap ( only to be done on your time…not company time), So not just you and your team play a great game of football, but we the fans, can watch a very well played, with very different strategies to winning a well played game, by well trained and talented athlete’s, each and every week of the season.

 

” Any professional sport is not about any kind of outside protest, as it is about showcasing the God given talent you have been given”

” You are an employee of the owner of the team you play for, there is a code of conduct for each corporate company you work for”

” Any success or failure we may have will be in our past, we can learn from the past, but never shall we dwell in the past as it only brings more pain to us all”

” We all have a God given talent and it is up to each of us to find that talent”
