May you finally be at peace Senator John McCain, Thank you very much for your brave service in the United States Navy, as your journey through the Navy had it’s bright spots, as well as it’s dark and gloomy days. You Sir are a true Hero, as most would of cracked under all the pain and hurt you have gone through. You are exactly the type of person, for whom built this country, into the great country it has become and without men like you, only God knows of what might of become with the land of the United States of America. John McCain went from a Hero of the Vietnam war, to becoming  U. S. Senator, which he gave a huge part of himself, for the good of his fellow man, now some may not agree with his policies, or him as a person, but you simply can not deny, that he was most definitely, a true American Hero, for which we all can look up to, so we to can strive to walk our paths of this journey through life, as close to being the man that John McCain truly was.

Just as this Eagle looks down on us all, to protect and serve being the strong bird it is, now John McCain is looking down upon us all, to protect and serve us as best he can, while he appears before God, to receive his wings, which will help him get around to protect us all, for the same thing he did, while he was flying around for the Navy, doing what he loved to do.

John McCain came from a strong family with a strong family foundation, as his Dad and Granddad were both Admirals in the United States Navy, making him a third generation Navy man. After his days in the Navy ended, he then embarked on a path of Public service, which he had more than stepped up to the plate in many ways, throughout his career. John definitely lived a complete and genuine life, as a life that most only dream of. So no matter of what you think of John McCain the man, or the Politician, there is no denying that, he was a true American Hero of our time, who gave his all, for the good of us all, so we to can walk our paths of this journey through life, following the foot steps of such a great man.

This journey through life is not measured by how many years you have within it, This journey is totally measured by the life you live within the years you are so graciously given by God. When you walk your paths correctly, the journey will reward you with greatness and the one thing we so take for granted and that is, the respect we earn from all those around us, very much like the respect John McCain has earned throughout his journey. With this respect of all of us, truly has us feeling the love of God, that is deep within our souls, so we than can share this love with our true empathy, with each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we walk through this journey correctly, the journey seems so simple, but when we bring all the other crap like, hatred, ugliness and corruption to this journey, is when the journey becomes very difficult for us all. So let’s take the John McCain approach as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in peace and happiness, while we strive for greatness and the respect of all those around us.

 

” A true Hero does not look in the mirror and see a Hero, he becomes one with his actions for all those around him”

” Respect is a two way street and will never become a street of one way”

” God has so graciously given us this journey to walk our paths, it is how we repay him with our actions, that brings us much respect”

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”

 

 

 

 

Times change… People change… in more ways than one

Every mountain has it’s trails, just as all the paths we walk within this this journey are the trails of life. No matter of the trail or how many times you walk the trail, there will be many changes that come to the trail, some changes can be very drastic and very noticeable, while other changes are minuscule or so small, that you may never notice, unless you look deeply into what you see. All trails never stay the same,  there is always something different no matter how many times you walk the trail,

Just as the trail changes, so do we the people as well. We all have our issues and no one that walks through this journey has no issues, the issues are the same as the the changes of the trail, they can range from very drastic, to very minuscule as well, sometimes the issues are brought on by our own actions, other times they are brought on by those around us. These issues are what changes us over time, the changes can be for the better as we move forward, or the changes can be very negative, that in many ways has us moving backwards and becoming lost within the clouds of our judgments, the changes we go through can and will take us from being of truly who we are, to being someone of who we are not, which will have even ourselves, not recognizing the person for which we are.

Life is full of change all around us, there is nothing that does not go through change. It is how we deal with the change, that determines not just of who we truly are and become, but how we treat each other as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we are not of who we truly are, which is the love and empathy that is already within our souls, this is when we tend to pull back  from those around us and pull in others of the same, then form a pack that attacks those that are not part of their pack, this also brings ugliness and hatred into the mix, which then complicates things further, instead of making things better moving forward. This is not truly of who we are, as through love and empathy, we actually feel deeply and care deeply, for those around us and will never harm another at any time throughout this journey.

We all have our quirks that pretty much we become accustomed to so much that, we really do not realize when they become an issue, one of the biggest quirks is, the way we speak our words to each other and through this world of political correction, has us all turning against each other and dividing us as a society, then we never really try to fix and change this, but instead point the finger of blame on one another, not just to deflect from ourselves, but to make light of our issues, to focus on the issues of another. With that said……….. I get the fact of some of the older generation taking offense to the way President Trump met and chatted with the Russian leader Mr. Putin, but I am sure President Trump remembers greatly of the past, when all were scared when the alarms sounded,not knowing if the big one was going to be dropped, from the days of the dark cold war with Russia. That was then, this is now, times have changed as well as we the people also. It is very hard to let go of the past, especially when you don’t take the necessary steps, to fix what you need to, so you can move forward better and stronger. President Trump is old school and is set in his ways, but that should never take away the fact that, he is a very smart man that has the best interests for America deep within himself and wants so badly, to improve all our paths within this country so badly. that His actions to this point speak for themselves and we can clearly see that he is improving and living up to his campaign promises. The problem lies deep within ourselves, simply because our judgments have been lost in the clouds within us for so long, we clearly have become very quick to judge other’s and point the finger of blame away from ourselves, as we have totally forgotten how to except responsibility, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then continue moving forward along the trails of our path, through this journey of life.

 

” Change comes to each of us in many ways, it is how we deal with the change that determines of who we become within this journey of life”

” There are many trails within this journey to explore, as each of these trails go through many changes as well”

” We climb the trails of the mountains to explore and see new things, but we do just the opposite as we walk our paths of this journey”

” Before we become quick to judge other’s, let us first look deeply within ourselves and fix our own issues moving forward within this journey”

 

 

 

 

 

The view from the Summit

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Hiking up a mountain is more than just going out for a jaunt, or some exercise, you don’t see a mountain and climb it just because it is there, you hike a mountain to look deeply in what you see, you hike a mountain to reach the summit of the mountain, so you can look out deeply into the horizon and truly see all the beauty all around you, while you sit and enjoy the peace and the serenity from all the true beauty.

Hiking up a mountain is a whole lot more than exercise, it is therapy for the soul. Sometimes you start out on a hike with some extra baggage, then just the pack on your back,  that extra baggage comes from the society for which we live. After a while our judgments get clouded, we become bothered by every little thing, our minds get filled with negativity and the positivity then disappears from the limelight. When you are hiking it is you, the trail and Mother nature which gives you a chance to escape and actually think of, what your next move will be. In this day of Social Media, some may hike just to brag on their social platforms, or maybe brag to others that they reached the summit of a certain mountain, they are not using what real hiking does for your soul properly, as when they come back from the summit, they feel even more clouded after, than before they even started the hike.

True hiking is the enjoyment of the hike, being on a trail and seeing things you normally would never see in your everyday life. The journey of climbing up a trail, to be as high as you can be, above the line of the tree tops, looking out into the horizon and really looking deeply into what you see, being one with yourself and Mother Nature, while you clear the clouds of your judgments, to think more clearly and to let the big weight of a society, melt away into the deep blue horizon. To hike properly along a trail and to the summit of a mountain, is to unwind, so you than can be truly of who you are and not the person that Society thinks you are, yes hiking is a free kind of therapy, that soothes your heart and soul, so you can move forward along your path of this journey through life, in peace and happiness always.

Hiking will bring change to you as you walk the trail of the mountain, whether it’s in the form of your surroundings, or it’s within you yourself with your attitude at the start of the hike, because at the beginning of the hike, you are filled with hatred and ugliness from a broken society, you are filled with negativity from the ugly society, then as you hike further, you can actually feel the negativity and the hatred, melt away and leave your body, making you feel much lighter as you move forward along the trail. The change that happens along the trail is within you and on the trail of the mountain, it not only helps you see the beauty in all that is around you, it helps beautify the soul deep within you, leaving you with good thoughts, more positivity than negativity and helps you stay true to who you are, without hiding in the plain sight of a society, because you are being someone you truly are not. Some of the trails you hike can be a lot of work, but when you hike properly up the mountain, it doesn’t feel like work, as you enjoy the hike and all the true beauty all around you, then when you reach the summit, you actually feel the peace and serenity deep within your heart and soul.

 

” Reaching the summit of any mountain is more than just bragging  on your social platform, it is therapy for the soul and us being of who we truly are”

” Check your negative baggage in the car as there is no room on the trail of the mountain you are hiking”

” Hiking is full of change all around you, even within you as you hike along the trail”

” To move forward along the hike, helps you move forward in society within the peace and joy around you”

” Sometimes we get so cluttered with the negative thoughts around us, that we then need a good hike within nature, to unclog ourselves from a broken society”

 

 

 

This Journey through life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

We choose our path we walk through this journey, sometimes the path is a bit rough and needs some work, sometimes along the path it becomes out of focus, there will be many obstacles to over come along the path as well, or quite simply………. The path may not look passable at first glance. No matter of how the path looks, we need to work hard so we can move forward, without going backwards along the path we choose, because when we move forward with our hard work, it will always give us a feeling of accomplishment, a feeling of pride and raise our self esteem to levels of we then feel great of ourselves, without being so sad or depressed, for the direction we are going along our path through this journey of life.

Like in this picture all our paths a little rough and it is all because some within this society, can not see clearly enough to continue forward by working hard, instead they simply are giving up by bringing much hatred to the rest of us, to make all our paths look harder than they really need to be. Those on the left being the Democratic party, are the ones that clearly can not see the true reality, they refuse to except President Donald Trump as the President of the United States and are doing all they can to get in his way of progress and get in the way of him delivering on his promises, to all those who voted for him. All these so called leaders are doing is quite simply………. not living up to their campaign promises that they promised to each citizen that voted them into their office for which they hold. The time is now for each member of the Democratic party to grow up, smell the fresh brewed coffee of reality and live up to all their promises of their campaigns, or simply step aside, let our President do his job that he promised all his voters, so we all can move forward with our hard work, while we leave the rest of you in our dust, as you fall backwards in your own little worlds.

No matter of how ugly the path looks, no matter of how rough the path looks, no matter of how impossible the climb along the path seems, with real hard work and determination, there is no path that can not be conquered, as we all move forward along the path and reach the summit of the path, then we all can feel the true feeling of accomplishment, see all the true beauty at the summit, making our hard work to get  there well worth it, then look even further down the path with so much pride, that no matter where the path turns from there, we will do so with gusto and strength, as our confidence will be so strong, that we will welcome any challenge that may come along the path we choose, so we than can move forward in peace and happiness, without any hatred like we see now, making this journey through life, a journey well traveled.

Just maybe we all should take to the mountains that are around and not just look at them from a far, but actually put on a pair of hiking boots, pack a backpack to put on your back with needed supplies, and take that trek that you think you can not do, yes it may be a bit rough at the beginning, but as the hike moves forward, as the hike moves upward to the summit of the mountain, you then change yourself, you begin to think more positive like, hey!!! This isn’t so bad, maybe I can reach the summit and before you know it, you are there seeing all the true beauty all around you. Being one with Nature and hiking a mountain to the top is more than just hiking to a summit, it can also be a life lesson that can help us all change for the better, because at the beginning we all will be a bit negative with our thoughts, then as the hike moves forward and upwards, we then change our way of thinking from negativity, to positivity and confidence. So instead of being so negative at our great President Donald Trump, give him a chance to do as he said, so we all can change for the better and reach for the summit of life along this journey, for which we walk our paths.

 

” Mountain climbing up any mountain may be a bit rough if you are not used to it no matter of who you are, but hard work and determination will help us all accomplish reaching the summit of the mountain”

” We all need to end all this hatred and negativity, so we all can be positive within peace and happiness”

” The path we choose may not always be smooth and easy, it takes hard work and determination to make that path as smooth as we can”

” A true mountaineer will struggle from time to time, but with hard work he achieves the summit of his journey no matter how difficult the path so he can keep moving forward”

 

 

 

 

 

God Bless America this 4th of July

See the source image

 

 

 

 

 

This statue of lady Liberty was a gift from France to the United States, but really how many of the younger generation know of this? Seems like within this Society and with the younger generation, all they want to do is change everything of what made this country great, I get that the past is the past and you can not change what happened in the past, but in order to move forward better and stronger, you need to look back in the past, see what we did wrong, so we than can fix what needs to be fixed to move forward in the future, better and stronger.

 

” You can not dwell in the past,  but you can glance back to move forward better stronger:

 

Oh! Lady Liberty how big and beautiful you look, as you watch over this land called the United States of America, you look so majestic and smart as you stand guard over this great land. The Statue of Liberty stands a top the Island of Ellis, just off the main land of New York. Those that want to become a ” Legal” immigrant of this great country, will take a short ride on a boat, so they not just see how powerful our Lady Liberty is, but to stand before her as they get sworn into being a Citizen of this great land…………. The very foundation of this great country was built by the hands of Immigrants as well as natural born Citizens, BUT!!! When you sneak into this country and steal everything away from the real Citizens, who have worked very hard for themselves and those around them on this great land, now you are labeled with the word ” Illegal” , which is a nice way of saying you are doing something wrong and need to be punished for your wrong doings. True there may be some who will not acknowledge the word ” Illegal”, and just might call others a “Racist”, simply because they speak the truth, well these are the types of people that just don’t get it and have lost all sense of reality, then force their beliefs and misconceptions on the rest of us.

We need to stop acting like little children fighting and bickering because we can’t get our own way, we need to get back to being a responsible Adult, who respects everything and everybody around them, so we all can then walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve. The way we are acting toward each other now is not of how, those of America’s past acted as they built the foundation of this great country, they would be rolling in their graves if they knew of all the crap and ugliness we are bringing to each other now, America was not built on stupidity as we are doing now, it was built on smarts and a lot of hard work, like the roll up your sleeves and get to work, type of hard work, it’s time to look back within history, so we can fix what we need to fix, then move forward better and stronger with each step of this journey.

So instead of just being a weekend warrior this 4th of July, or simply just showing up at a party for food and drinks and then watching fireworks at night, let’s remember first of the what the 4th truly means? Which is America’s birthday, just as each of us have a birthday, then let’s remember those who fought the good fight, so we than can celebrate with our cookouts, celebrate as we become a weekend warrior, or even celebrate as the fireworks light up the night sky, because those that fought the good fight, did so as we are now Free to do what and as we want to do. It is hard to see the true meaning of anything, when all we are doing is, fighting and bickering at each other and really over nothing, because we are just spitting words, instead of actually saying words, so let’s show more of our love and empathy that is deep within us all. then we all can be at peace, while we walk our paths of this journey in happiness always.

 

” America the beautiful is for all who walk their paths correctly without using the word of ” Illegal””

” The past will always be behind us, but it will always be there to keep us moving forward better and stronger”

” America will always be of Freedom, life, liberty and growth, it will never be of being illegal at anything within this great country”

 

 

 

 

Corruption is dirty, break out the soap

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

This rock face on this mountain at one time, was the home of a very famous face. A face that was well known throughout the world, even though it was kind of like  a stone face, that never took a breathe, The name of the stone face was the Old man of the mountain and you could only make out the face when, you look at the profile of the face, otherwise it was camouflaged and hidden within the rocks. You would think that this rock formation would stand the test of time?  But how quickly we forget, that through change all will come crumbling down and take on a whole different look.

Change not only  affects us, it also affects everything around us. Nothing ever stays the same, no matter how much we would want it too,. now some are very afraid to change, so they then embrace the comfortable rut for which they walk their paths through this journey of life.

Those within our Governments and who get voted into the office they hold, are the ones that not only fall deeply into their rut, but they resist any change for as long as they can. These men and woman within our Government when they become lost within their rut, they lose total sight of any kind of reality and they think that it must be their way or the highway, without any respect  for the ones that put them into their office in the first place. The job within the Government is not for themselves, it is also for every red blooded American throughout the entire country.

Now it seems pretty one sided that roughly 97% of all the Politicians are Lawyers, what are the Lawyers really good at……….. Lying, stretching the truth and the twisting around of the spoken word, or any words for that matter, so they than can get their way, over all that is around them. The Executives of the media very much the same, as they to are all Lawyers, get the theme here? This is totally the reason for all the corruption within all the walls of Washington DC. Now you have a Business man for President and all Hell is breaking loose within those same walls in Washington DC. Now the other issue is the media, as they won’t chat about everything that happens to best keep all of us within the reach of their drama, their half stories and their fake news, just to keep us spending our money into their pockets, so they can get richer and we get poorer.  All corruption is dirty, just that the ones that are corrupt, are the ones that can look clean, even without breaking out the soap, which being a lawyer, will help you chat up a story from a beat up piece of crap at the junk yard, to a Maserati $200,000 dollar vehicle. We need to end all this dirty corruption and if that means to totally change the walls within Washington DC, then so be it, but it needs to be done before it’ s too late and we still have a country to call home, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

 

” Corruption can’t be cleaned with soap, it needs us all to unite as one so corruption can go down the drain with the rest of the dirt”

” Change affects us and everything around us, which is why we need to embrace it and not rebel against it”

” The theme of the government is one sided and one way, being my way or the highway, time for true change with unity for true strength”

” Time to end the dirty corruption, so we all can look clean and not just a chosen few”
