” Jesus told him, ” Go your way; Your faith has saved you” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way”

***Mk 10:52***

 

 

As we walk our paths through this journey of life and even though, our eyes are wide open, we to like the blind man can not see for what is truly in front of us. Like this picture of the forest, it may look like nothing, with many obstacles in front of us, but when we truly do not look deeply into what we see, than we to like the blind man, will never see all the true beauty that is around us. We get so caught up within all the ugliness and hatred around us, that we let our arrogance get in the way of truly seeing whats in front of us, then we let the fear of the ugliness and hatred, keep us from getting out and truly feeling the love of God within us, which helps us keep the faith in his son Jesus Christ within our hearts, so we can share this love and faith, with each other, as we then open all our eyes widely, to all the true beauty around us.

Just as the Blind man tried to get the attention of Jesus and come over to him, we to within our souls and with the inner child that is deep within all of us, try to bring Jesus closer to us, but with our arrogance and the clouds within our judgments, we think that he isn’t listening to us, so we then begin the process of losing the faith in him, which then has us losing the faith of ourselves, to truly see deeply of all that is around us, it then leaves us being as blind as the true blind man, that doesn’t walk a path, but wanders through the path, of this journey through life.

Being truly blind without being able to see anything, doesn’t mean that you can not see, only the true blind man will tell you that, he actually see’s clearly of what’s within him, with his true feelings coming out, so he can walk his path of this journey, just as if he can really see like all of us with our sight. When one of our functions isn’t working as it should, is when our faith in Jesus and ourselves is so important, so we then without becoming so arrogant, see all the true beauty that is around us. When we are in touch with our true feelings that is within us all and with our faith in Jesus, then that child within us all, can grow within us as healthy and strong as it needs, which has us all, keeping the faith of ourselves, to walk this journey better and stronger with each step.

Through all the ugliness and hatred, is when we lose the faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, simply because we let our arrogance get in the way, so we then lose the feeling of our true feelings, which then has us lose of who we truly are. When we are someone we truly are not, we then get lost within the clouds of our judgments, with the feeling of self doubt getting in the way of truly seeing the beauty all around us. When we doubt of who we are, we then will never see our way around any obstacle, which will then have us not only losing any faith within us, but we will never become stronger, so we then will never be better and definitely, through our arrogance, we will never truly see anything as the blind man.

When we are truly of who we are, always keeping the faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, our arrogance will never get in the way of us seeing the true beauty around us. With faith comes hope and with hope, even through blindness, we will always keep feeling our true feelings within us, so then not only that inner child within us can grow healthy and strong, we to can grow healthy and strong, to be better at all we do moving forward, as we then never lose sight of all the true beauty around us. With the blindness of our arrogance, never being an issue of us getting around the obstacles, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

 

” Even the blind man can see with the faith in Jesus, giving him the faith in himself to truly see the beauty all around him”

” With our arrogance bringing forth our self doubt, we will always be blind to all the true beauty all around us”

” When we can see the true beauty of this picture, we will never see the obstacles within it”

” It may seem that Jesus isn’t listening to us, but with faith is when we clearly hear him speaking to us within our hearts”

Small Town Americana…………

The Heart beat beat of true America, this is how America started, before all the big cities were built up. Everybody knew their neighbors and all those around them, unlike today where you walk down the street where you live and not know a soul who is nearest to you. America back in the day was a special place, where everybody helped each other without stepping on the others shine, Some may tend to think that, all Immigrants are welcome here even without the proper status? Now very true that America’s foundation was built by Immigrants, but Immigration done the correct way, which makes it very fair for all. You want to come to America and have a better life than where ever you are from, then go through the proper channels and work hard to not just improve your lifestyle, but the lifestyle of all Americans, who live in this great country of opportunity.

This is Wells River in the state of Vermont, far enough away from any big city, but yet it survives just as good as any city. The towns people pull together as one, to keep the town going strong, unlike those within any city, where they can’t even give one another the time of day. What is sad of today is, some can not survive within small town America, as they are too lazy to work hard in so the town can do as the town does best and that is to survive, within this dog eat dog world of today.

Now very true that the small town is a whole lot quieter, than any city of today, but don’t let the quietness fool you, the small town is just as busy, with all the hard daily work, by all within the small town. The beauty of the small town is a close second to the beauty of Mother Nature, with the both of them being greatly unique in their own way.

Small town America so rural, so out of the way from the true action of the cities, that the ones that don’t live within them, forget that they even exist? Once upon a time, within a time that we of this society have no idea of, a time of no automobiles and where horse back riding was a thing of the norm. a time where hard work was the thing, so we all could move forward better and stronger. A time we all looked out for one another against any kind of enemy, definitely a time that even through the hard work, we still not only found time to enjoy all that is around us, we found time to flourish with each other, as we moved forward in happiness, becoming stronger, as we walked our paths through this journey of life.

Just imagine within this picture a time with no automobiles within it, a time that had these hitching posts that you tied the reigns of your horse to, as you went inside the local general store to pick up supplies, or into the local watering hole as we once knew the bar as, plus while inside you chatted with the store owner, as this was considered your night out, unlike those of us today,  getting out to the closest disco, for dancing and drinks? Yes back in the day of old school Americana, they enjoyed their time, but they also worked very hard, so they could enjoy their time even more so.

 

” Small town Americana wasn’t just a place, it was where we all learned Respect and dignity moving forward”

” The roads may be paved now, but back then they were dirt and you learned how too stay clean as you traveled upon them”

” The heart beat of America beats strongly within the small towns within this great country”

” As the big cities grew bringing America into the future, the small towns stayed the same, keeping America with a great and strong foundation”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gates within the fires in Hell to the eternal salvation of peace within Heaven

” There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me”

*** Mk 9:39b***

 

We all walk through this journey of life, the same journey that Jesus walked, when he came to us. Jesus showed us of just how to walk this journey in peace and love, all the ugliness and hatred comes from we the people getting away from our weekly Sunday gatherings, within the walls of the house of God. Without the chance to speak quietly with God, in a setting of peace and joy, it then opens us up to the temptation of the fires of hell, which within this Society and all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now, simply proves further that, there are many that have given into that temptation, instead of truly accepting the peace and love of God within us.

Now you don’t always have to enter the house of God and many of us have found other ways to chat with God in their own ways, seeking not only his advice, but to keep the feeling of God’s love alive and strong deep within their hearts and souls. As when we do enter the house of God, we do so with respect, just as though we expect others to enter within our homes showing respect as well. The weekly gathering within the house of God, is us going to church, to not just attend a mass, but take part in the Lord’s prayer, the Lords feast and excepting the blood and body, of his son Jesus Christ, within ourselves, to love and share with all those around us.

It is so easy to simply blend in and get caught up within all the ugliness and hatred around us, the hard part is to except and truly feel the love of God within us, only because we in this society don’t want to be labeled or looked at as, different or a freak, because we then let everything around us affect us in a negative way, staying positive in this ugly society may seem hard, but it is a lot easier than we let on to, The biggest thing attending a mass within the house of God gives us is, keeping the faith in God alive within our souls, so we than can keep alive all hope, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Going to mass each week gives us a chance to get back touch with who we truly are, the love, faith and hope, not too mention the accepting of the blood and body of Jesus Christ deep within our hearts and souls. When you receive the body of Christ at communion, you don’t just chew it and swallow it, you let it melt in your mouth, as it then gets absorbed deep into your heart and soul, which then journey’s deeply within your whole being.

When we are all born within this society, we become baptized within the house of God, later we then make our first communions within God’s house, then still later we make our confirmations also within God’s house, we allow so much to happen to us within the walls of the house of God, but yet we still walk away from the house and for some, never to return? The house of God is everything of who we truly are, all the other crap only comes to take us away from who we are and forces us to become someone for who we truly are not.

The house of God keeps us in control of who we truly are, as we strive for the eternal peace, the faith and the love, so we then can always have hope in all we do, as we get to the true path of righteousness within this journey, which then will help us keep the fires of hell and the temptation to succumb to all the ugliness that may try to over come us, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The house of God is so much of who we truly are, but yet we walk away from it like it never existed”

” The house of God brings us love and peace, as the fires of hell brings us temptation and ugliness full of hate and chaos”

” Jesus died on the cross for the salvation of us all, but yet we repay him with the walking away from the house of his father”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A True American Hero

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

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

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”
