” Jesus answered, ” My kingdom does not belong to this world, if my kingdom did belong to this world, my Attendants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews, but as it is, my kingdom is not here.”
*** Jn 18:36 ***
The Kingdom of God is truly the highest and most rewarding for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus died on the cross for each of us, was buried and ” Rose” again for all, so we can renew our faith in him and his father, he rose to the one true kingdom of his father, where there is nothing but peace and happiness for all. Now as we all walk through this journey of life, we think from our arrogance that, this is the kingdom of God and why would he let all this hatred and ugliness within his kingdom? Simply because this is not the true kingdom, it is only a journey, with many twists and turns, that gets us ready for the day of the judgment, that then brings us to the true kingdom of God, so we than can have all the peace and happiness, that is within our hearts, souls and dreams.
This journey through life we all walk here on Earth is not perfect, it will bring us much pain, hurt, sadness, as well as happiness, not too mention it will try to control of who we truly are, but as we walk through this journey, it will test us, it will see just how strong or weak we are and as we walk this journey, it is our actions that will help us in achieving the judgment to enter within the one true Kingdom……….. The Kingdom of God, the father of our savior Jesus Christ.
For those that have ventured out within Mother nature and really seen the true beauty, like what is within this picture, you will truly see that, there is so much more to this journey through life, than just what we see on our daily nine to fives? We were created to explore, we were not created just to sit still and criticize each other. It is we the people that are totally responsible for all the hatred and ugliness around us today and unless we get out of the denial, that has a grip so tightly on us today, we will never escape the ugliness and hatred, which will leave us on a journey of negativity, instead of a journey of love, peace and happiness, it is our actions that determine our fate along this journey and if we do nothing, then the hate and ugliness will forever surround us, with no light at the end of the journey, which is the true light of the path of righteousness, that leads us out of the temptation of this journey and into the true kingdom of God, as we all have eternal life within peace and happiness.
With our actions it will help us keep the faith in Jesus Christ, which then will help us keep the faith of ourselves, so we than can always have hope, to be better and stronger, as we achieve all that we want to achieve, without having any ugliness or hatred slow us down along our path of this journey. I get the fact we all want to reach a high level of achievement, but at what cost do we want that achievement? not everybody can be at the top of this journey, but yet we ourselves and our arrogance, will have us think we are better than those around us and that should have us above all else? We are not better than each other, we are only unique to each other and unless we escape the grips of the denial, we will never end all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now.
The true Kingdom of God is a special place, that surrounds you with real love, peace and happiness. Some of us today may think that our chances of entering into this Kingdom upon judgment day, will never happen? On the contrary, Jesus always forgives and even when we think there is no hope for us? Jesus will forgive us and when we except Jesus within our hearts and forgive ourselves of all our wrongs, that is when the power of God and his son Jesus are the strongest, as they truly forgive us, so we than can right the ship and walk this journey better and stronger moving forward.
The spot in this picture is truly peaceful and will totally relax you as you sit and enjoy the peace, with all the daily stress simply melting away and the drooping of your shoulders from the weight of the stress, making your posture much better as your shoulders go back to where they originally were. Love, peace and happiness are the three keys to a successful journey, leading into the true kingdom of God and with all three of these keys, plus the complete faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, now your on the true path of righteousness, which totally at judgment day, helps us enter into the true Kingdom of God.
” Judgment day is that day we all reach along this journey, when the journey comes to an end”
” The kingdom of all kingdoms, is the one we meet Jesus at the gates upon judgment day at the end of the journey”
” Love, peace and happiness are the keys for true faith in Jesus and ourselves, so we all can have the hope in reaching the path of righteousness”
” There are plenty of spots within peace like in this picture, we just have to get out and explore to find the true peace and serenity”
” I urge you, as Aliens and strangers in the World, to abstain from sinful desires”
***Peter 2:11 ntv***
The road is bare, the road is desolate, just like we of this society, as we have no clue of who each other is anymore. We are so wrapped up within our own worlds, with our own agendas, that we clearly can not see all who are around us anymore and it all starts, within the walls of Washington DC, as these so called leaders of ours, can not even see eye to eye, with each other, to the point that we the people, are the ones that truly feel deep within, all the pain and chaos, that those so called leaders are bringing to us daily.
These so called leaders and with their own agendas at hand, only see what they want to see and everything else to them, simply does not exist. When it comes time for them to be re-elected, then and only then will they say what we want to hear, then as they get re-elected, they move forward with their agendas, forgetting totally of who voted them in, to stay within the walls of Washington DC. The only ones at fault for these so called leaders to keep getting re-elected over and over again is, we the people who keep them within the walls of Washington DC. It is kind of like all the drama within the sport of football, with the taking of the knee, during the National Anthem, maybe if we the people would truly Boycott the sport, not spend the money or the time watching the game, just maybe the drama will go away and we can truly get back to watching the sport of football, as the players then play the game simply because they love the sport they play.
Maybe there are true Aliens out their in space within the milky way? But seriously!!! We are all Aliens to each other here on Earth, simply because………. We march to the tune of our own agendas, without sharing the love of Jesus Christ that is within our hearts and souls with each other as Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us. We stab each other in the backs, we will stop at nothing to take each other down, thinking that we can jump further ahead of each other, If only we could see clearly along this journey of life, we would truly see that, its not about attacking one another, as it is all about, becoming one in unity, making this journey in great happiness and peace as it should be.
” This land is your land, this land is my land” such a great quote from a Patriotic song that is rarely played anymore, if we only get back to our past, instead of trying to wipe out the past, then just maybe we can move forward better and stronger, along our paths of this journey through life. We tend to forget that we are Humans walking a path, along this journey of life, we are only here for a short time, then we leave our bodies and go to a place……………. Well we will never know truly of where we go, til that day comes, as we all are born and start this journey in the same way, then as the journey takes us in different directions, we all then never finish this journey in the same way and who knows, we may not meet again, when our journey here comes to an end?
” We are Aliens to each other here on Earth, only because we march within our own agendas without showing empathy of each other”
” Is the road truly bare? Or just maybe the clouds of our judgments won’t let us see anything else?”
” The Aliens within the milky way of space, just may know more of us, then we know of each other”
” This land is your land, this land is my land, the only true way to find out is, for us to get out from within ourselves and truly see with our eyes”
” Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one”
*** Colossians 4:6 ***
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”
The journey of the trail, some trails are short and some long, some trails are an easy nature walk, as most will test your skill and endurance, none the less all trails offer you the same thing…………. The fact of getting outside and being one with nature.
Don’t be frightened of how the trail may look at first glance, as you will never experience true beauty, as you would on the trail of your choosing, while you look deeply into what is all around you. The journey of the trail will have you travel along many different terrains, with some being muddy and murky, others bumpy with many curves, then as you climb higher, now you walk among the clouds on top of the rocks, that make up the summit of the mountain.
All trails start with the getting out of your vehicle and putting on your gear, including a good pair of hiking boots. You want a good solid but comfy boot, as this will determine of just how good of a day you will have on the trail. You will also need plenty of water as you will need to stay hydrated on the trail, not staying hydrated will lead to a whole different issue, than just walking the terrain of the trail. Don’t forget the first aid kit and keep it stocked, as you never know for what will be needed, especially on rugged terrain. Then there is the much needed snacks for the trail, as with the calorie burn, you will need to replenish the body with the important vitamins. When you are on the trail, you simply never know what you may en-tale? So it is important to be as ready as you can be, for what ever that the trail may have in store along your journey.
Hiking along a trail can be the best and funnest of times, as it can also be the hardest and worst memory of your life, which makes it even more important to be ready for whatever you may come across, to minimize the worst and greatly improve the best of times, you never forget the camera as well, so you can keep good records and good memories, not to forget that, you can capture some really good pictures of many different kinds of animals and plant life, that you may normally never see, in your everyday world. of the 9 to 5 and go home to sleep for the next day.
While there may be many different hikes out there, some being day hikes and others over night hikes, the one that really grabs me is the Appalachian Trail, at just over 2100 miles, ranging from Georgia to Maine and all the states in between, this hike takes six months from start to finish, through all different terrain and all different kinds of weather that Mother Nature may throw at you, but none the less, when you complete this hike, it will not only give you a sense of accomplishment, it will give you a huge confidence boost, that will have you feel like that is nothing you can not do.
Within this broken society for which we all live, sometimes we get so caught up in things that drag us down, instead of pick us up, that we forget about doing things that make us feel great. We are afraid to do things that we think others will poke fun at us, so we then lose sight of just doing things that makes us happy, as we than can walk our paths of this journey through life in peace, so we than can feel good of ourselves, regardless of what others may think of us? Life is too short not to live as we want to live, but always remember that, when we do it correctly, then life itself will bring us great rewards as well, without being sad or depressed for living a life of regret, because we were too afraid to simply be ourselves, be the true person of who we truly are and not the fake person that we hide in plain sight within this broken society.
” The journey of the trail encompasses many things, but nothing better then making us all feel good of ourselves”
” When the terrain becomes rugged and steep, is when we are at our best along the trail to persevere and complete the trail”
” Never forget of truly who you are, as this will always help in us feeling good of ourselves, within this broken society”
” The trail may be long or it may be short, it is still a trail that we can walk, to help us all in being truly of who we are”
To those who have never trekked upon any mountain, let alone mountains that stand tall before them. When climbing any mountain you first have to be prepared for any weather changes that mat occur, then there is the terrain whether rocky, muddy, degree of steepness, or fallen trees in your way, you need a good pair of hiking boots, as they will provide support, as well as give a good grip for all the different terrain you may encounter. Hiking up mountains like in this picture, isn’t just slapping on a pair of sneakers and running up a trail, you first have to study the trail on a map so you don’t get lost along the trail, what would happen if the markers of the trail are not there, as they may have been knocked down during a storm or for whatever reason? You need an idea of how to navigate on the trail and a compass in the pack is a good tool for all Hikers.
We may hike any mountain simply because it is there? But for some we hike that mountain, to look deeply into what we see. Mountains have a way about them, that changes us as we trek to their summits. We start along the trail with one mind set or attitude about us, but as the trail dictates to us, we then change our demeanor, change the way we think of the mountain, look deeply into what we see, so we than can see all the true beauty of the mountain. There are no two mountains alike, each mountain is unique just as we are unique to each other and each mountain has a tale to tell, we just have to look deeply into what we see and not just climb the mountain because it is there.
The tale of the mountain begins at the beginning of the trail, with the different plant life, the different animals you may encounter, as they call the mountain their home, then along the trail and as it to changes from under our feet with the degree of steepness or maybe the width, with a good drop right next too us. plus as we get closer to the summit, now everything still changes, especially how all the trees are getting smaller as we climb. The vegetation OH!!! so delicate, becomes very different and if you step off the trail and kill, the vegetation it now dies and takes hundreds of years to grow back. Now as you reach the final push to the summit, you find the rest of the trek all rock with the trees as big as a small plant, you are now above tree line, leaving you susceptible to all the weather that the mountain endures, not too mention, you are out in the wide open with no cover to seek. The mountain has many tales as you trek up it’s trails, with your feet feeling the heartbeat of the mountain with each step. In some ways the journey to the summit of the mountain, is similar to the journey of life, you walk a trail within both, you endure many changes along the trails, when you don’t respect the trail like life, now you have some crap to get through, but when you walk the trail in life the right way, it will reward you greatly, just like the reaching the summit of the mountain, with the great views, that wait for you to enjoy the peace and happiness, of a trail well blazed.
” The mountain is calling, you simply just look deeply into what you see, to truly understand what the mountain is telling”
” Hiking up a mountain is more than just physical exercise, it is true exercise for the mind, body and soul as well”
” Mountains will have an effect on all who trek them, that’s why there are many changes along the trail of the mountain”
” There are many rewards that come to us along this journey of life, but the reward of reaching the summit of any mountain, will take your breathe away with it’s beauty”
When we look deeply within our hearts and souls and within the true beauty of this stump, you can see without question, the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with the crown of thorns still upon his head. Now quite simply because we can not see things like this is, we have become so far removed from the time that Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us. that we now let the clouds of our judgments control completely of who we truly are.
When the day comes that we can totally see God within ourselves and when, the day comes we can truly feel the love of Jesus deep within our hearts and souls, only then will all the hate and the attacking of one another disappear from all of our paths throughout this journey of life. The hating we see today as well as all the ugliness, is not of who we truly are, this is only we the people of this society, being cold to one another and not sharing the love of Jesus within us, with each other along this journey of life.
We all hear of all the border talks of the United States of America and all the Immigrants who are trying to sneak in here Illegal, plus all the talks of the families being torn apart at the borders? The one key word we need to focus on, to see clearly of what is truly happening is, ” Illegal”. When you do something of which you shouldn’t and totally try to take advantage of others, you clearly can not see past the clouds of your judgments. This is not just happening at the borders of America, it has been and for a long time, been happening all around the globe, just that we the people along with those within the main stream media, have turned a blind eye to it, simply because it doesn’t fit into their agendas to chat about it. We need to totally look deeper into ourselves, look deeper into what is around us, so we can clear the clouds of our judgments and get back in touch with our true selves, to truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, then not just feel the love, but share the love and the empathy with all that is around us, so we all can walk our paths in peace and joy always. There is still time to fix all that is wrong within this society, but we the people have to want to fix it, or this journey will just get rougher with every step we take.
The biggest thing we need to look deeply into is, Why are the ones all over the globe, trying to jump from one border to another and doing so the ” Illegal” way? Plus why are we letting all the children get lost in the middle within the clouds of our judgments? These innocent children are being exploited, taken advantage of, being objectified and being made a victim of, simply because we the people are only thinking of our selves and not the welfare of our children and their future’s. The children didn’t ask for this, nor did they volunteer for this, they are being used as a pawn, so other’s can flood us with the drama of their agendas and also, so the weak can hide behind them, instead of facing true reality and being of truly who they are. A lot of these children are of a young age and an age of vulnerability, they really do not know the difference between right and wrong yet, plus they look up to us as role models and when we lead them into uncertainty and deceit, now they then form in their minds that this is how life is, this is how you survive in this cruel world, which then leads them further away from Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within their hearts and souls. Which then has them continue this uncertainty and deceit as they grow older along their paths of this journey through life.
” The power of Jesus Christ is within us all, within our hearts and souls, in the form of true love and the feeling of true empathy to share with each other”
” The warmth we feel deep within our hearts and souls is the true love of Jesus Christ within us all”
” Every country has borders and yes we can cross those borders for a better life, but only done the correct way, so we all can be at peace and joy always”
” To do something Illegal you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing”
Camping is the only place that is true happiness, as you are one within the beauty of Mother Nature. The beauty of Mother Nature is so beautiful and so powerful, it will not only bring a smile to your face, it will also help you out of whatever funk you are in and transform you, into the real true person, for which you were meant to be.
The quiet serenity, the peace like in this picture, this is what will have the stress from the everyday grind, simply melt away from your body and soul, the stress is what brings us into a world for which we do not care for. When we are within the stress of the everyday grind, we become this person that, not even we ourselves recognize who we are anymore, but when we are within the beauty of nature and let the peace and serenity over whelm us, we then become the true person that we are and that is always within our hearts and souls, just that within the daily grind and all the ugliness around us, we put up this front and totally forget of who we truly are.
It just amazes me that when we are within our daily grinds, we think nothing of stepping on another’s shine, or attacking one another, just to put up this front that we are more powerful than those around us? We won’t even do a simple task like give each other the time of day, just walk the streets of any big city streets to see how true this is, but yet when we are camping within nature, or hiking to some of the tallest summits, we actually chat to one another, say hello to each other, I get it, but yet I don’t get it? We can be so good to each other, and yet we are so mean to each other as well. When we of this Society chat of the two Political parties and call some hypocrites, why not look deeply into yourself and truly see that, we are all hypocrites, when it comes to the way we treat each other.
To some camping is just a place to be to escape into a bottle and drown themselves in whatever funk they are in, this is not what camping is all about, true camping is to go somewhere and explore, go somewhere with the peace and serenity of nature all around you, then totally feel the stress of the everyday grind, simply melt away, as you then become totally relaxed and see all the true beauty that is all around you. Some may camp with their trailers full of comforts from home and at a park with many others, this is camping yes, but it is a whole lot different than camping within the beauty of nature, as nature will transform you into, the true person for which you truly are. There is nothing wrong with camping with the comforts of home, just that your not really camping, just parking on a set of wheels, as camping within a tent, will have you totally feel the heart beat of the Earth and truly feel nature bring to you the peace and serenity, that is so missed, within the everyday grind that we all walk, on our paths, through this journey of life.
” Camping the one true place that transforms you into the true person of who you truly are”
” The quiet serenity and peace of nature is what camping brings to you, when you become one with nature and let the stress melt from your body and soul”
” We are all hypocrites when it comes to the way we treat each other within this society”
” The true power of nature will totally transform you from what you think you are, to who you truly are, showing all the true beauty around you”
The Hidden trail within Nature is only hidden if you don’t go out and explore what is around you. As you walk along trails like this, you just don’t know what lurks in your path? The trail is hidden deep within the woods and as you venture out on one trail, you just may come across many more like it, along your journey within Nature.
The wooden trail deep within the woods may scare some to not walking it, as they may not want to become lost in a place they are not familiar with, but that is part of the fun and having a good sense of direction and a knack of looking toward the sky and knowing where to go, as the position of the sun sets your course, this is what’s so intriguing about these kinds of trails, which then when you make it back to your camp site, now you have a sense of accomplishment that makes you feel good about yourself.
While walking along these trails you are within the homes of many animal life and plant life, to see some of these animals and plants you normally do not see, this is the exciting part of the trail, it makes for an interesting walk that has you looking deeply into what you see. Unlike our normal run of the mill walks within our neighborhoods, or maybe a lunch walk at work, it is awesome to get out and explore, just to see things you normally would never see. The biggest problem with this Society is, we don’t get away from our daily grind enough, so we can truly unwind and relax away the stress of the grind, instead we let the grind dictate our actions, which in a lot of cases, has us becoming someone we truly are not.
A nice walk within Nature and along the beauty of a hidden trail, in a lot of ways is better than the therapy you may pay for, as it is a natural type of therapy that soothes the soul and helps you breathe in fresh quality air, now don’t get me wrong it is nice to have someone to talk with to unload some of the daily grind, but it is also good to get out and explore things you normally would never explore, which then has you see what true beauty is and being one with Nature, now you can actually feel the stress of the daily grind, just lift out of your body, leaving you feeling lighter and more relaxed.
The hidden trail may not be that hidden in reality, but to you it is hidden, as it is the first time you have walked this trail, leaving you with a good feeling of accomplishment. Plus the setting up of a camp site, giving you a place to sleep within Nature as well as cook a meal over the open fire and the getting away from the daily grind for a short time, not only does this make you lose the time of day, now you become totally relaxed with the worries of the grind melting away from your brain, leaving you even more relaxed and a feeling like you will never feel, when you are within the daily grind and feeling like a robot that doesn’t stop. There is more to this journey of life than the nine to five daily grind, you just have to go out and find that trail, find that camp site, so you than can be truly of who you are, let the stress leave your body, so you than can be totally relaxed to enjoy your path through this journey of life.
” The hidden trail is not so hidden while you walk within it and explore all that is around you”
” A walk within nature is good for the soul and helps you unwind from the daily grind of the nine to fives”
” Go out and explore something new, as you never know what you may see or find, which will help you totally relax and truly be of who you are”
” The beauty of Nature is a great way to find that free therapy, to help you unload the stress to feel lighter and relaxed”
