We are ” Destroying” ourselves throughout this Journey

We of this Society have witnessed way too much ugliness, even more than Societies of the past, true other Societies have seen some ugliness, but the ugliness around us today, has pretty much taken on a life of it’s own. I mean seriously………….. All the mass shootings, the Terrorists wanting nothing more than to end all those who don’t share their warped and twisted so called lifestyles, then there are the children of the inner cities getting a hold of guns and turning them on anyone, just because they think it would be cool? You have the Parent’s of these children going around like their children are Angels and all other children are wrong? You send your children to school everyday so they can become smarter and live a life better than yourself, but instead the schools are a mess, between the Bully’s and the deranged ones wanting to hurt others around them, not only where are the Parents when their children need them most, but where are the Teachers, who not only are supposed to teach our children, but it is also their responsibility to keep the children’s safe from all harm and most importantly, the Parents actually trust these Individuals to keep their children safe, during their duration of the school day.

Natural disasters like Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes etc….. These are going to happen and worry us greatly, but having to worry about all the other ugliness around us today, no wonder why we are a broken Society today.   Most of all the ugliness around us today is the responsibility of we the People of this Society and we are not doing a good enough job in eliminating this ugliness. We vote for these so called leaders to lead us in this Society, so we can all be better and stronger moving forward, but instead these so called leaders say what we want to hear, then stab us in the back when they get voted in and proceed to do what they want to only benefit themselves. They make these Bills that turn into law only to help a certain few and the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves and struggle greatly, work hard, while some get everything handed to them on a silver platter? You want real equality……….. It has nothing to do with how much money you have, or what color you are, or even what sex you are, we are all Humans on this Earth, walking a path through this journey of life and we all need to smell the sweet smell of reality, instead of simply dreaming and sponging off of others.

These so called ” Dreamers” who walk into a country and think they can sponge off the people of that country, need to seriously get a life and try working as the rest of us do everyday. Your dreams will never come true if at first, you don’t put in the work and simply help yourself achieve your dreams. Let’s take the American Dream for instance, you think you can just lay there and ” Poof”, your dreams are there in front of you when you awaken? I got a news flash for you…………. it don’t happen that way, you first have to work hard, so then your dreams can become reality. In this Society for some reason, we have become afraid of working hard and even the thought of work, not only scares the hell out of some, but it sickens them to the point they can’t even get out of bed to work. The video game craze has made us become anti social, as we sit in front of a computer, instead of going out and becoming social with those around us, because of this we have become very scared of face to face interactions with anybody, but put us in front of a PC and suddenly we now become very active with our voice and in most cases, we say the wrong things cause there is no true interaction going on at all.

There is a simple solution to all this ugliness, but first we as a Society have to come together in unity, then the solution will be right there in front of us, especially when we not only have complete faith in Jesus Christ, but we also have complete faith in ourselves. With the complete faith in Jesus and ourselves, then there is always hope for a bright future, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Also when we dig down deep within our hearts and souls, then we can truly feel the love and empathy within us, which will then aid all of us moving forward, as we then battle all the ugliness and defeat it, once and for all. The ugliness is only a product of just how divided we have become, leading us into this broken Society, if we only felt deeply of the love and empathy within us, then all the ugliness will disappear from all our paths through this journey of life, so we all can be at peace and happiness, while we all work hard at making our dreams become our reality.

 

” A dream is something we make up while we sleep and is greatly different from what reality truly is”

” Sometimes a dream can become a reality, but first you need to work hard to make it that reality”

” Some may try to steer us in the direction that we feel uncomfortable, which is why we need complete faith in Jesus and ourselves to overcome and go in our own direction”

” We are all equal to each other as Humans walking a path no matter of who you are, which is why we should never let money, color or sex determine our equality”

First the Erosion than the Change…..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

You first have to have the Erosion before any Change can take place. The Erosion happens making room for the new and whatever change may come? There is a lot of erosion that happens all around us, even we as Humans go through a sort of erosion, so we can make the necessary changes, to walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger.

Whether you are in the mountains or on the beach, there are many different kinds of erosion’s happening all the time, from mud slides to rock slides, to beach erosion and if you happen to have real estate in these areas, you better expect change to come from these erosion’s. We as Humans will have erosion’s as well, or better known as a meltdown, or going from a young age to an older age. As we age there is a lot of change that comes to us, whether we want it or not? Life events will have us erode as the person we were, to the person we become and this scares the hell out of us, which will force us to hide within ourselves, afraid to be who we truly are and afraid to face reality or others around us, this is what we know as negative change and if we don’t except it, then it will control every fiber of our being, keeping us from being who we truly are and making any change at all, very hard or non existent.

When we except the negative change and truly fix what we need to fix, then we can turn the negative into a positive, which then helps in the erosion process, so we then can minimize the erosion and letting the change come to us easier, so we can continue walking our paths of this journey in peace and happiness.

The erosion in this picture at first glance may look ugly and have us wondering why does it have to be like this? But when you look deeply into what you see, you can see the beauty that will come from the erosion, making everything else around it just as beautiful as well. The stream looking dried up and the shore nothing but rocks, as the vegetation around, getting little or not enough water, leaving the vegetation at the mercy of the erosion, but with plenty of nutrients from the water, makes the erosion small and letting true change come to all that is around it.

There are many different kinds of erosion all around us, even what comes to each of us moving forward, but when we understand better of the erosion and let Nature take it’s course naturally, we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, in peace and happiness always and forever.

 

” First comes the erosion to be able to identify change”

” Then there is change leaving us with a good self Esteem”

” Erosion isn’t just for the landscape, as it is also for each of us as we walk this journey through this life”

” Erosion may tear things up for a short time, as the change replaces and makes everything new once again”

 

It can all be taken away in a flash

 

” Our paths through this journey of life we take so for granted, as everything we work so hard for can be taken quicker than we realize”

What a huge tragedy for all those who live in or around Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They have been in the biggest drought in this area in about a decade and because of this drought, has sparked many brush fires over the last few months, but the weather and the windy conditions on Monday, took these brush fires to a whole new and scary level. This picture may not be of Gatlinburg, but it shows a town very similar here in Massachusetts, a small town nestled within the mountains, that has many residents that live their lives there, this town has many things of beauty within and around it, these residents work hard for what they have and work hard to be able to live within the beauty of these mountains, a town very similar to Gatlinburg, but as we just found out earlier in the week, everything you work so hard for, can be taken quicker than you can blink your eyes and you have no control over it.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, some may grow with a silver spoon in their mouths and some work their fannies off just to survive and live along their paths and grow up with nothing, but through their hard work they achieve many things along the way. No matter who you are everything you have can be taken quicker than you realize, as we saw from the events in Tennessee, this doesn’t mean we have to stop living and enjoying what is around us, but we do need to respect more of what we have and what is around us as we walk our paths of this journey of life. Life is more precious than we lead on to think it is, we take so much for granted, without realizing just how quickly it can change.

A good majority of the Citizens in and around Gatlinburg Tennessee, are now with nothing but the clothes on their backs now, there homes totally gone with nothing but the chimney left, everything incinerated to ash on the soil of their property, all their special pictures and memories gone, furniture and material things gone, everything but the clothes on their backs, as they were running for their lives to escape the huge flames of the fires. This can happen to any of us as we never know where the next natural disaster will strike? The states in the area known as ” Tornado alley”, know all too well that life is so precious as they to have gone through what Gatlinburg and surrounding areas just went through, except a different kind of tragedy. Tragedies happen it is part of this journey through life, we can try to control them but only God has control and we need to simply…… do not take for granted of what we have, show more respect of each other, show more respect of all that is around us and take our lives a little more precious, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

True we chose a path to walk through this journey of life, but what we don’t really think about is, just how fast it all can end, instead we take everything for granted, we think we are entitled to everything around us, just because it is there? We think just because we buy a parcel of land and build a home, that we automatically own everything else around us? We take our trips on vacation to see all the beauty of where we are, but we never think of what could happen to take this beauty away, we take so much for granted that when a tragedy does happen, we then become so devastated that we forget truly of who we are, lose all respect for all that is around us, we lose sight of what this journey is all about and we forget just how precious this journey truly is. We all walk a path though this journey of life, we need to respect all that is around us more, never forget just how precious this journey is and always never forget that, it can all end quicker then we want to admit to, so we then can move forward in peace and happiness, so we can also be better and stronger also.

 

” Fire, Tornado, hurricane or any other weather event are all natural disasters, that are huge tragedies that can strip us of all we work so hard to achieve”

” This journey through life is a precious thing and can be taken from us at any time in our lives”

” We work very hard for what we have in our lives and at the same time can be taken easier than we achieved it”

 

Take a Bite out of Life……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

It is amazing how a little Critter that is the Beaver, can literally bite at this hard wood and fall this live tree, these Beavers work hard to gather their supplies needed, in order to build their homes. I wouldn’t want to get bitten by a Beaver, cause if they can fall this tree using only their teeth. your talking some pretty sharp and strong teeth. Beaver’s put in some long hard days, doing a lot of hard work, Wish I could say the same for some that live within Society of today.

There are some People within this Society today that are so lazy, they won’t think twice to receive Welfare while they sit on their Fannies and do nothing all day, then they think they are entitled to having others pay for them to do so? Maybe this system needs to change, but within this political Correct World we live and the ones that are within our Governments, that will think of themselves first, then maybe think of the ones that voted them into the office they hold, this system will never change as the lazy ones get lazier and the Worker’s work harder, without ever getting ahead themselves, within this unfairly balanced World we live today.

Back in the day of a time before we had all the perks we have today, a time when if you didn’t work hard, then you had no roof over your head or a table to put the daily food on, in order to eat and fill your bodies with the nutrients that you lost throughout that day. Axes came from somewhere? So you had an Individual sit down one day and made the first Ax, now you had a tool to build a house and make a table, for the daily meals you are about to eat. This individual now has an Ax so he can venture into the woods and gather much needed Timber so he can now build a house, there were no Banks back then to walk into, just a handy Ax, to walk into the woods and start gathering timber to build that roof over your head, to live safely as you walk your path along this journey throughout life.

Times were different back in that day yes, their journey along their paths may seem like to hard of a journey for us now, only because we have become so lazy, that any kind of work is too hard for us to do. This journey through Life really isn’t that hard, it is only we the People within this Society that have it  seem hard, by the way we go about living our lives and walking our paths throughout this journey of life.

Two different times, two different era’s, it is hard to compare the two together, but they both have Individuals walking a path through a journey of life. The Individuals back then worked hard to achieve all that they achieved, if they didn’t have a tool, they made a tool that would do the job they wanted to do, now we go to the store and buy a tool, which makes the task so easy, back then if they wanted to build a roof over their head, they ventured into the woods, so they can get the much needed timber to build their home, with that roof over their head, now we go into a realtor, visit a bank so we can buy a home with that roof over our heads, okay maybe the bank will deny you at first, but it is still much simpler than back in the day, when they walked into the woods to gather the necessary timber, to build that house. This journey through life is much different than back in the day, but with all the technology in front of us, has made this journey very easy, as well as made us very lazy to do any hard work, like those of yesteryear  who walked their paths along this journey of life.

 

” Back in the day was of a different era, but in no means should it ever be forgotten”

 

” Individuals back in the day worked hard for all they had, why then should some today steal from them to say they worked for what they had if you never really worked”

 

” You get out of life what you put into it, if you sit on your Fannies looking for a hand out, then you will never really receive anything in life”

 

 

Troubling times throughout this Journey

This to some that may not know, is known as a Fallout Shelter, it protects us from harm as it is built into the Earth, with thick concrete walls and thick steel doors, keeping you from whatever is trying to harm you. This could help protect you from natural disasters, like Tornadoes and Hurricanes, or it can help you escape War’s like back in the Era of World War 1 and 2. People back in the Era of the War’s were building these on their properties, as they wanted to feel safe from what was unknown. We all Fear the unknown it is completely normal as much as we may think? So when the more fortunate ones built these Shelters and stocked them with supplies needed, it gave them a feeling of peace, knowing they had a place to escape what Feared them, or whatever ugliness was around them.

With these Fallout Shelters and keeping us safe from the ugliness around us, who then is suppose to keep us safe from each other? Everyday on the news and what we may see with our eyes, there are some who are attacking those around us, these attacks range from a wide variety of different kinds of attacks both physical and mentally. This definitely was not the vision God expected, when he created all of Mankind.  These attacks are all on us, the People who walk their paths along this Journey of Life.

Physical Abuse, Mental Abuse, they may come to us differently, but they leave the same scars deep within our Souls, they hurt us in ways that it turns us into someone we truly are not, they affect that inner Child that is deep within all of us, which leaves that Child in so much pain, that it never grows properly, as we never grow properly around it. The Abuser does nothing but create Victims and most Victims then become an Abuser, it is one big vicious circle, that we all need to look deeply into, so we can break the links of this circle and all live peacefully with happiness everyday.

Abuse of any kind should never be tolerated, but behind this Abuse is an Individual hurting deeply within themselves, an Individual that is so lost within the clouds of their judgments, that they can’t see where they are going along their path of this journey, they have lost all respect and trust of everything around them, so they then lash out trying to end their own pain from hurting them anymore. Trust is a big part of an Individual that is hurting, as without it they feel there is nowhere to turn, in order for them to heal from their pain. When an Individual becomes a Victim of any kind of Abuse, they stop walking their paths and simply wander in circles, just trying to get rid of the pain that has engulfed them deep inside, they lose the trust of all that is around them, which then has them losing all respect of everything around them as well.

When we hurt deep inside, it is not just ourselves that hurt, it is that Inner Child deep within all of us that hurts deeply as well. When this Child grows properly, then we ourselves grow properly with it and become better and stronger moving forward, but when that Child hurts it stops us from moving forward and become stagnate throughout this journey. The way we properly heal ourselves from our troubles is, not only forgiving ourselves, but forgiving that Child as well. Just like we Nourish, Feed, clothe and take care of our Children in our Families, we need to do the same of that Inner Child within us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we can do so in Peace and Happiness everyday.

 

” Fallout Shelters protects us from any harm that may come to us, but true forgiveness of ourselves can protect us from the harm that will come to all of us”

” We all have an Inner Child within us, we need to take better care of this Child so we all can prosper and be better along this journey”

” Trust, Respect and Forgiveness are the true factors of our lives and these factors we all take for granted”

 

 

Father time giveth…Father time taketh

Daylight savings time comes with the four Seasons within a calendar year. During the Fall season we turn the clocks back one hour, this not only  gives us an extra hour sleep, it also gives us less hours of daylight. It is par for the course, as in the Spring we lose an hour, but we gain daylight for the coming season of Summer.

Some of our Elected Officials might want something to say of this Daylights savings time? As some are in the process of drawing up a bill, that will do away with it. Seriously!!! Like there is nothing more important than worrying how much daylight you have after wòrk? With a National Debt fast approaching 20 Trillion, an “illegal” Immigrant problem to solve and an unemployment situation to solve, with Corporatons leaving to go to other Countries, so they can hire cheaper labor and make more profit, with the Worker being hurt the worst. This journey through life has enough to worry about, without adding to it, with what time do you want the sun to set?

The four Seasons have been part of this Earth, since God created it, for all Mankind to enjoy in peace. Each season like we Humans are very unique to each other. The season of Fall puts a bit of a chill in the air, turning all the leaves on the tree’s a bright vibrant color, than as the season moves forward, these leaves fall to the ground, as we clean up our yards. We also turn our clocks back one hour, making it dark earlier, with an Erie feeling to each day, as the season of Winter gets ready to greet us with Frigid cold and white snow falling at our feet.

Winter is a time for most to hibernate and stay indoors away from the freezing cold. It is also a time to rejuvenate and freshen up, getting ready for the nicer weather to come in the next two seasons. Winter for some may not be welcome, but it is a way for Nature around us, to clean itself and bring beauty to us once again. The season of Spring brings warmer weather, with rain to feed all the plant life around us, so it can bring us beauty once again. Everything we see begins again, from when it ended in the colder months, then as we turn the clocks forward, the days get brighter for a longer period, so all can breathe the clean air once again. As all begins a new in the Spring and grows with full growth, we then enter into the fourth season of Summer, where we all enjoy all the beauty that is around us. True Summer can bring intense heat, but it is a time for us all to go outside, stretch our legs, look deeply into what we see and enjoy all that is around us. The four Seasons are needed for all life to survive within this Planet of Earth, as the Daylight savings time is needed to help in the process of the Seasons, throughout this journey of life.

 

” Daylight savings is to all of us, as the four Seasons is to nature and all that is around us”

“Gain an hour, lose an hour, it all evens out throughout our paths of this journey of life”

 

 

 

 

The Journey of life we all walk, with many different sufferings that come to each of us.

            ” He summoned the crowd with his Disciples and said to them, ” Who ever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me, for who ever wishes to save his life will lose it, but who ever loses his life for my sake and that of the Gospel will save it”.

*** Mk 8:34-35

This quote from the Scriptures and the Gospel, which is the word of our Savior Jesus Christ, basically describes how Jesus came out and announced to we the people, that he is the son of God, to which the process of suffering and the carrying of the cross, was all part of him showing us he was being truthful with us all and that through this journey of life, we all go through some kind of suffering, then carry a cross along our paths, so we to can find that path of righteousness and see the light of peace and serenity as Jesus found.

There are many things that come across our paths of this journey of life, we are not alone with any of the sufferings within life. Cancer…… We all have known someone among us that has suffered this dreadful disease, or even we ourselves who have suffered? Earthquakes, Tornadoes, vicious attacks to name a few, these are all kinds of sufferings that come to each of us, in one way or another. We all have had some kind of suffering within our journey of life and as much as we may think we are alone, You are not alone, just that each of us are afraid to communicate with each other of our short falls and sufferings.

As much as we don’t want to communicate of our sufferings, we need to communicate better of these sufferings, so we all can properly fix what is wrong and move forward, along our journey of life with peace and serenity for all. When we don’t communicate properly of these sufferings, you can clearly see with all the crap within our Society, that each one of us suffer greatly, with all the hatred and killings of innocent people, not too mention all the less fortunate people, that struggle daily just for one meal a day, or even put a roof over their heads. Life for some may not be fair, only because others take things for granted and stop at nothing to steal everything away from others, so they can live their plush lifestyles.

We all walk a path along this journey of life, we all start out the same way on this journey, we all may not end this journey the same way, but this journey will end for all of us, whether we want it to or not. When you walk this journey properly and take care of the sufferings that come to you, is when peace and serenity will come to you, which helps you carry the cross as Jesus did, to be able to accept everything that comes to you, then see the light of the path of righteousness, which leads to the peace and serenity of a well traveled journey, along your paths of your journey through life.

Some will go through their journey only thinking that they are the only ones walking a path through this journey of life and that everybody else is in their way, keeping them from what they think is the result of this journey? This is the thinking that does nothing but breed all the hatred around us, also breeds the ugliness and crap we see around us as well, we all walk a path through this journey of life, it is up to each of us to accept the sufferings that come to us, fix the issues of these sufferings, so we all can find peace and serenity within this journey of life, as we find this peace and serenity, is when we all will coincide better with each other and we all can have peace and serenity moving forward along our paths, as we help each other carry the cross as Jesus did, knowing of a journey well traveled.

” Communication is key to help us all through all of the sufferings within this journey through life”

” There are many things that come across our paths of this journey of life, we are not alone with any of the sufferings within life”

” We need to communicate better of these sufferings, so we all can properly fix what is wrong and move forward along this journey of life”

” We all suffer in our own way, it is how we accept and fix our sufferings that have us move forward and find our peace and serenity along our journey of life”
