The Road less traveled

The road less traveled or maybe the lonely road? Either way it is a road with zero traffic and zero drama within this journey through life. The road in this picture is as rural as rural can get, where the biggest thing to worry about is, watching out for the wild life, that may come to the road to cross to the other side. Where as all the roads in the cities you have to worry more on, watching the other driver, to not slam into you. Driving these lonely roads will have you truly see the true beauty around you, look deeply into what you see, as what you will see, just may be very different from what you are used to seeing.

The one thing we have gotten away from in this Society is, to truly go out and explore what is around you, go out and travel these lonely roads, see everything that is around you and not just, what is on our usual route or path. Okay true these roads do get driven on from time to time, but with all the busy lifestyles and some who may be afraid, to venture away from their comfort zones, these roads become so lonely that the wildlife will walk them, with no fear of being hit very often.

Just like these lonely roads, we to can become lonely or isolated for many reasons throughout our journey, the difference between the roads and us is, we are a living breathing thing the road is not. We have feelings deep within us, the road just lies there waiting for its next traveler. When our feelings get hurt, we hurt real pain, which then has us hiding within ourselves and isolating ourselves from all that is around us. Even as the road gets driven on, with no feelings the road still lays there as if nothing is there. The road less traveled is not really a lonely road, where when we are lonely or isolated with no one or thing around, now we can hurt real pain from our feelings, but when we get hurt more than we like, now we have to worry about something totally different and that is, numbing our feelings deep within us, where now we can become like the road and feel nothing with no pain.

Being lonely and isolated for us, is totally different than that of the road. Way too often we get lost within the loneliness and lose our way, we bury our true feelings deep within, as to not become hurt with real pain, when we do this we then, become someone for who we truly are not, so we can try to look as normal as normal can be. Being lonely and isolated will come with a price, but driving on the road less traveled and exploring, or truly seeing the beauty all around you is priceless, there is a huge difference between the two, which you will never see, unless you look deeply into what you see. We all will think we feel lonely and isolated, but we will never feel anything as our true feelings have been buried so deep that, we have numbed ourselves to all that is around us, which now has us just wandering , instead of walking our paths through this journey of life, to be better and stronger.

 

” Is the road really lonely or is it just lieing there as still as still can be”

” To go out and explore means to truly get out of your comfort zone and see new things”

” Feelings are deep within us all, even at the times when we numb ourselves from these feelings to escape the pain and hurt.

We all need to stand up to all this ugliness together.

”                           YOU WILL NOT HAVE MY HATRED

Friday night, you took an exceptional life — the love of my life, the mother of my son — but you will not have my hatred. I don’t know who you are and I don’t want to know, you are dead souls. If this God, for whom you kill blindly, made us in his image, every bullet in the body of my wife would have been one more wound in his heart.

So, no, I will not grant you the gift of my hatred. You’re asking for it, but responding to hatred with anger is falling victim to the same ignorance that has made you what you are. You want me to be scared, to view my countrymen with mistrust, to sacrifice my liberty for my security. You lost.

I saw her this morning. Finally, after nights and days of waiting. She was just as beautiful as when she left on Friday night, just as beautiful as when I fell hopelessly in love over 12 years ago. Of course I am devastated by this pain, I give you this little victory, but the pain will be short-lived. I know that she will be with us every day and that we will find ourselves again in this paradise of free love to which you have no access.

We are just two, my son and me, but we are stronger than all the armies in the world. I don’t have any more time to devote to you, I have to join Melvil who is waking up from his nap. He is barely 17-months-old. He will eat his meals as usual, and then we are going to play as usual, and for his whole life this little boy will threaten you by being happy and free. Because no, you will not have his hatred either”.

This was a FaceBook status from, a Husband with a 17 month child, of one of the Victims in Paris, France. This was written to an unnamed person or group of people in the second person.

This is exactly what is needed to be done of all the ugliness around us. We all need to stand up and be counted against all this ugliness and not just sit around to do nothing, or live in fear from this ugliness.

Jesus did not come to us and walk his journey with us, so some could try to take control of all others, by using fear and weapons. Jesus came to us to teach us just how to walk our paths of this journey of life in peace, with happiness of everything around us. Jesus also sacrificed himself, suffered and died for us, then rose again to be seated at the right hand of his Father, to show us that when we walk our paths of this journey of life correctly, we to will rise from the dead, to be in a World of love, with no signs of any hatred.

” Hatred is only temporary, as love is for ever, to be achieved by each of us who walk a path through this journey of life”

 

These Terrorists can only operate strongly when the fear they bring to our Society is as strong as it is now, they will continue this ugliness and senseless tragedies as long as we fear them and do nothing to end their reign, when we stand as one and look these Terrorists in the eye and putting this fear right back into them, just like we deal with Bullies along our paths of this journey, then the Terrorist just like the Bully, will cower away like the true Coward they are.

I can’t explain exactly why these Individuals act in this way of a Terrorist, I can only come up with a theory that may not be far from the truth? This theory is, these Individuals have hidden deeply their true feelings and emotions, simply because they have been hurt deeply themselves in some way? For them to move forward without dealing with their own pain, they take to putting fear in all that is around them and making everybody else go through much pain and hardship. The Terrorist is merely an Individual that has lost their true feelings of empathy and remorse, an Individual because they have lost truly who they are, have twisted their views and are now trying to push their twisted views on the rest of us and if we don’t follow their ways, then well we all know what their end game is.

The time is now to end all this ugliness that is around us everywhere, time we all stand as one, showing these Terrorists we don’t fear them anymore, so they can cower away like the true Cowards they are. God did not create Mankind, or did he send his only son Jesus to us, for us to show this hatred of each other, God wants us all to walk our paths of this journey showing our love of each other, so we all can walk in peace and happiness everyday of our existence, then when we walk our paths correctly and our journey here ends, we to can be in a World full of love, as Jesus showed us when he had risen from the tomb in which he lay.

 

” Empathy and remorse is within us all, when it gets buried then we bring ugliness to all that is around us”

” We all struggle with issues at times in our lives, these struggles bring much pain, but when we fix these issues correctly, then the pain goes away and we can feel our love that’s within us and share this love with each other”

 

From Rags to Riches……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all have our ways and our views of how to walk these paths, just like we all have our views of what becoming rich is, but what truly is being rich? Is it having so much money we get lazy with our lives? Or is being truly rich in our spirits what makes us better and stronger along the paths we walk?

” We all want to be crowned in gold, but when Jesus came to us and sacrificed his life for us, he was wearing a crown of thorns, but was the richest of all of us, in his mind, body and soul”

We all want to be rich with money as we think this will cure the ways of which we live? We think money will give us all the power over each other? But money is the root of all Evil and will never cure us from the clutches of Hell.

We the people of this Society are our own worst Enemies, it is okay to have our own views of the way we want to live, but when we force our views on each other, now you have become a Society scorned and a Society that has become broken, in search of a fix to all our troubles moving forward. Just like the Tree’s in this picture, they have many branches stemming from the main branch called the tree trunk, there are many paths that branch out along this journey of life, there are no wrong paths, just we have to find the right paths for which to follow, without over stepping ourselves as we chose to follow a path. Sometimes we let the views of others shine brighter than our own views, cause we simply don’t have the confidence to follow our views, we think when we see others with more riches, we then think we are doing something wrong and then become something we are not, just to keep up, but as we do this we then get lost within the path of this journey of life.

Jesus came to us and taught us just how to walk these paths of this journey, but through the years and with our clouded views, we have also lost the true teachings of Jesus Christ. When we see much hate of each other, with the senseless tragedies happening around us, you would think we all would recognize the fact that we are doing something wrong? But in this Society of egotism and all about me, we can’t truly see the writing on the walls around us. We can still fix the troubles of Society, we all throughout Society have to come together, put our views a side and  when we come together as one, we then become stronger for whatever battle we may face. We need not rely heavily on our Leader’s as these Leader’s have failed us before, although they to need to join us in coming together, so we all can rid this Society of the ugliness, fix what we need to fix, as we get back to walking our paths in peace and we all have smiles and full of happiness along this journey of life.

 

” We all have our own views of what is around us, we need not push these views on each other”

” This hatred and ugliness we see around us today can be fixed, we just have to come together as one and become stronger than the hatred and ugliness themselves”

 

To look forward as we see the new beginning from what we think is an ending…

                         ” What we see as an ending, is really a new beginning, we just don’t see it at the time”

You see in this picture the different changes within it, the what seems to be lifeless trees in the background, yet the vibrant bright green color of the tree in the foreground making this picture look a bit three dimensional? To some they may overlook this at first glance, yet to others it will be clear as day, everything around us including we ourselves, will go through many changes, these changes will always bring an ending that we need to accept and acknowledge, so we can truly see them as a new beginning and begin a new path along our journey through life we all walk together.

God puts forth these changes to us in the form of an ending, so we can truly see the new beginning, to truly be stronger and better along our paths of our journey through life. God also puts everything in our lives at play here, even the churches in which we frequent, to pray and ask for his forgiveness. Each one of these churches with their congregation, will go through these changes cause it brings us closer to God, so we can find and have complete Faith in him, the power of this Faith is much greater than we really know, cause we don’t truly acknowledge it and feel it within us. The power of Faith is within us all, just as God’s love for us is within our hearts always, God doesn’t put forth these changes to us to punish us, he only does so to make us better and stronger moving forward.

True when a church is forced to close, there then comes much pain, grief and sadness. These churches have become great inspirations to us all, we have been Baptized, made first communions, been confirmed and even married at our churches, we even come to celebrate a life that has been taken from us within these churches, these churches have been a huge part of our lives and who we have become as we grow into this Society, that unless we look deeply into what we see, we will never see that ” from all endings, will always come a new beginning”, so we all can walk our paths along this journey of life in peace, while we all become better and stronger moving forward.

There is no textbook for us to study about walking a path along this journey of life, like we study our textbooks in our schools, the only book we have to look at is the “Holy Bible”, a lot of us just simply don’t take the time to read it, so we can understand better this journey through life, instead we make up our own version of this journey and then let ourselves feel the wrong feelings, which does nothing but bring us more pain than we really need to feel, Jesus didn’t come to us and form his disciples, just so we could do things against what he taught us along his journey, Jesus came to us to teach the goodness of the true path of righteousness to his Disciples, which they in turn spread their knowledge to us, as well as the love of Jesus Christ to all of us who walk their paths along this journey of life. During the time of the journey of Jesus Christ, they didn’t have many places of worship like we do today, they had one to which we all had to travel to, in order to seek his help in forgiveness, but what we tend to forget even back then was, the power of prayer and faith which is always there for each of us, no matter where you are along your journey, the power of this Faith and Prayer is within each of us, we just have to feel it within us to unleash it’s true power, then as we feel it’s true power, we all can walk our paths in peace, as our journey through life becomes better and we become stronger.

” there is only one true book of this journey through life, it is known to us all as the Holy Bible and we all need to take the time to read it and understand better the journey of life”

” change is always difficult but when done correctly will always help us be better and stronger”

“Everything around us may close at some point, but never see it as an ending, always look at it as a new beginning”
