The beauty of the Earth and all there to explore

Slide 8 of 31: Montana is drowning in beautiful bodies of water, with more than 3,000 lakes and reservoirs across the state. It’s hard to pick the prettiest but we reckon Avalanche Lake just edges into the lead thanks to its crystalline, glacier-fed water, forested shores and the Rocky Mountains, which shimmer in the distance like the most striking wallpaper.

” Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth”

Matthew 5:5

 

Blake Shelton and his new song called God’s Country has it totally correct, with pictures like this proves just that. This picture is taken in Montana and I need to get to this state, so I can totally be one with nature and enjoy all this beauty. Camping, kayaking, and mountains OH MY!!! Montana has it all if your big into the outdoors and exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer and with scenery like this, your days will be full of peace, serenity, and adventure.

I can see myself paddling the kayak up this river, breathing in the cool fresh air and totally taking in everything around me. Mother Nature with all her beauty has so much to offer, but if you do not get out and explore, you will never know just how much you are missing. There is so much more to this journey than just being stuck within the cities, some may take their vacations and go to places where all others go, but to get out where the hands of man have never been………. Now your talking of just how too heal yourself from all the pain and anguish that a city can bring. When your mind gets cluttered with all the crap from everyday life, the only way to clear the mind and heal the body and soul, is too escape within Mother Nature, to get deep within her peace and serenity.

The Grandeur of the mountains in the background gives you the feeling of freedom, the openness of being in the kayak paddling in the water and taking in all that is around you, now you can just feel the stress melting from your body, as you feel lighter and paddle faster from the lightness. There is no better feeling than the stress leaving your body from all the ugliness within your everyday life. As we work our 9 to 5 jobs within this corporate world and being such a fast-paced society, where we need it now mentality comes into play, we really do not take the time to slow down and really look at what is around us anymore. Then you have these so-called Politicians who promise everything but deliver nothing, then add in the fact that some think they have all the answers to everything, but really are clueless and have no real answers to anything, makes for a lot of mixed feelings, cloudy judgments and real pain and hurt of which we all feel. With all this confusion truly shows how much we all need to get out and explore within Mother Nature, not just too see her beauty, but to get out and enjoy the true peace and serenity of this journey through life.

As we walk our paths through this journey and within this broken society, we all get so caught up in the ugliness, the hatred, and the chaos, too the point that we let the clouds of our judgments control of who we truly are, we become so comfortable within our own little ruts that we don’t get out to explore, simply because we don’t want any more pain and hurt coming to us, we try so hard to keep the ugliness at bay from us, that we forget just how much beauty this journey truly has and even when we do get out, because we have been so consumed with all the ugliness and chaos, we truly have no idea of how too really enjoy all the beauty around us, we still rush around thinking we have to be ahead of all else, even as there is nobody around us except for maybe some wildlife, who to them this beauty is their home. This journey through life has so much to offer and as we live within the cities, is just a small fraction of the journey, as we think we are seeing everything? The only way to see everything this journey has to offer is too get out and explore all the true beauty within Mother Nature, so we then can heal our mind, bodies, and souls, from all the corruption, the hatred, the ugliness and the chaos from within this broken society.

 

” To truly fix this broken society we all have to be on the same page and we all need to heal from the crap, to be of who we truly are”

” Paddling a kayak through the beauty of mother nature, there is really nothing better along this journey of life”

” We are so lucky in this country for the freedom that some have died fighting for, yet we forget this fact simply because we get so caught up in the ugliness”

” There are so many pro and cons to this journey that if we do not truly understand, we will never see all the true beauty all around us”

Get out and explore

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Step out of your comfort zone, get away of the things that has become your norm, learn new things, as you stay true to who you are and always, never lose sight of who you truly are. There is so much we accumulate throughout this journey we walk, but what we take for granted is, these material things can be taken from us, as the knowledge we have within ourselves, can never be taken and is always ours no matter of what happens to us. When you go out and explore new things, whether it is doing something different at your 9 to 5, or it is getting out within nature, you are not only gaining confidence in yourself, you are gaining more knowledge, for which you can keep within you, to make you smarter and wiser, as you walk your path of this journey through life.

The trail may look in disarray, or maybe not well marked? But when you stay true to who you are and confident in your abilities, you will always see clearly of where to go and always see clearly of all the true beauty all around you. Unfortunately within a society full of ugliness, hate and corruption, it is very easy to become consumed within it, lose sight of who you truly are, as now you are trying to protect yourself from any harm coming to you, then enters the power of denial, which it will control everything about you and it will control every fiber of your being. Denial will have you see things that are not really there, as you then create this fake reality, which now you become part of the lies and the rhetoric, which is the furthest thing from the true reality.

Not all the trails within nature are clearly marked as you get out and explore, but as you stay true to who you are, these trails will always lead you to great things and never will you become lost, the confidence in your abilities will have you blazing the trail as if it was clearly marked for the direction you want to go. While walking the trail you may come across and see things you normally would not see, you will hear sounds that at first will have you a bit nervous, as later you find the source of the sounds and realize, that the source is also out exploring themselves along their path of this journey. There is so much to this journey, that unless you get out and explore, you will just never know of how much there truly is.

Too someone who just walks through the woods without clearly looking at what they are seeing, they will only see the woods as a mess, with the leaves littering the ground, tree’s and limbs hanging everywhere around, rocks put into places to trip you up, the thick brush making it hard to see where you are going, but too someone who gets out to explore and is true to themselves, will see a different picture within nature, they will see true life, erosion, change and when they look at where they are going, they will see around the thick brush, to blaze their path that others have never tried, you look to the sun in the sky to calculate time and in which direction you are going. How do you think Mankind survived, back in a time without all this technology, a time where cell phones were not even a thought in someone’s brain, we are so consumed within the ugliness of this society, we don’t let ourselves see other societies, that have blazed the trails for us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, there are many things out there that will trip us up, hurt us with real pain, turn us into someone we truly are not, plus not too mention of the society we live, full of ugliness, hatred and corruption, the easy part is too hide within ourselves to protect ourselves from the pain and hurt, but while we do this we are suppressing further down inside, the love within ourselves, so now the love is know where to be seen. The thing that we forget is, the hate is learned from somewhere and harder to keep going, as the love is already within us and much easier to spread among each other daily, if we all just stay true to ourselves, be who we are always, we will find that all this ugliness, hatred and corruption will disappear, as this is not truly of who we are. We the people have created all this ugliness, hatred and corruption, it is we the people that can end it all also, we just have to stay true to who we are and never become someone for who we are not, so we can stay in touch with the love inside ourselves, as we spread this love with each other, just as Jesus did, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

 

” Get out and explore all that is around you and stay true to who you are throughout this journey always”

” Step out of your comfort zone and gain the confidence to walk your path of this journey through life”

” The trails within nature to some may be messy, to others it’s the most beautiful of all the trails”

” All this ugliness, hatred and corruption is hurting us so bad, we are all becoming someone we truly are not”

 

 

The Peaceful beach really exists

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We have all dreamt of waking up on that secluded sandy beach, but as we walk our paths through this journey of life and get so caught up within this society, especially a society full of ugliness, hate and tragedy’s, the secluded beach gets lost within the clouds of our judgements, which then disappears from our minds, leaving us with no where to turn, to escape the crap within the society.

Oh!!! that secluded beach is very inviting, but what really lurks deep within the forest behind such a beautiful beach? You tie off your vessel to secure it, as you find that magical space, to which set up your area of secludeness, as you sit there and look out into the water and clear your mind with relaxing thoughts, there is that one thought that keeps rearing it’s ugly head, as you keep turning and checking the forest behind and seeing if something is sneaking up from those woods behind you?

The woods of the forest so dense and thick with natural growth, makes it hard to get a good look at what might creep up from behind you? So you than get up, go to the vessel and grab the oar or whatever you have as a weapon, you go for a  little jaunt within the woods to explore and look at what is around you. The one thing you certainly find is that, the woods has it’s own kind of beauty, that compliments the beauty of the secluded beach perfectly, okay maybe you didn’t find anything terrorizing, or something vicious that would want to bring you harm this time, that don’t mean it is not there and reason why we should never let our guard down, but at the same time, never let it affect us to the point, that we never find the secluded beach and enjoy totally all of it’s true beauty.

Looking at this picture helps me remmember the television show Gilligan’s Island, makes me day dream of what it might be like being stranded on an uncharted Island with a very secluded beach, building a hut as a make shift house to hang my hat, be intrigued for what I may find, or even live as primitive as the Caveman, back in the history of Mankind. Creating and making your own inventions and tools, living within a world for which has only been within your head, to that point. Just think of it for a minuate…….. No chaos, no corruption, no ugliness or hatred, the only thing around is you and what ever lurks within the forest of that sandy beach, who knows there just might be Heaven on Earth and not just within our heads.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, it is we the people with our thoughts and actions, that bring this corruption, chaos and hate to this society, so the best way to end all this crap is, for each of us to escape the claws of denial and get back to living as Jesus taught us, get back to walking this journey with positive thoughts, as we stop all the negative chit chat and let our true actions do all the speaking we need, to move forward and not backwards, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

 

 

” The peaceful sandy beach is so inviting, let’s never just see the peace and look truly into everything around it”

” The difference between a dream and reality is, a dream is fake news and reality we all live  together with our actions”

” To be secluded on a private sandy beach may seam like a dream, but that is really not what reality is”

” We escape reality to enter into our little dream worlds even for a short time, we can never do the opposite because it does not exist and not of who we truly are”

 

 

 

To look deeply into what you see, with the right focus

Unfortunately within this society we do not focus on the right things, to truly see the reality of what is around us. “If life was like a deck of cards, we all today are clearly lost within the shuffle of the deck”. Take this picture for instance, most would just float on by without seeing the coolness or the, intrigue part of what we see. There is so much we can learn and see when we get out and explore within nature, the problem we all have is, we are all lost within the shuffle, that we clearly can not see what is around us, which has us all missing the important parts, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look no further than the Individuals for who we vote into office, that are suppose to come together to lead us, to make all our lives better, as these Individuals are clearly lost within the shuffle of the cards of life, which has them in the wrong section of this journey and most dangerous, the section of denial which they clearly can not see any true reality that is around them. If we all just take a step back, look deeper into what we see, then we can stop the shuffle of the deck, get back to true reality and truly see all that is around us, as we then see all the true beauty as well.

This picture is so cool on so many levels, as you look at what is in front of you, you can see all that is within nature, from the erosions, to the new life. The tree may look as if it is growing out of the rock? But when you look deeper, you clearly can see that, through the erosion of the river at it’s highest point, has the roots of the tree becoming exposed to the light of day. Everything in life is subject to erosion over time, even we as Humans erode over time, as when we reach our Golden years, not only does our bodies change, but our minds erode as we call this ” Alzheimer’s, but our pride has us not excepting as we should. With all that is eroding in nature, there is even more new life that comes in, which is also known as the ” cycle of life”. The Cycle of life is a big part of the journey we all walk, just that we take too much for granted everything within the journey, we clearly do not see the cycle. Those within the walls of Washington DC talk so much on global warming or climate change, that they have forgotten, a big part of what is within the life cycle, true we the people with our bad habits and decisions, can and will be a part of the life cycle, but the cycle of life is something that is going to happen no matter what, this is just a part of this journey through life that we need to understand better, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward, without being lost within the shuffle of the deck.

Getting lost within the shuffle of the deck is, kind of like being lost within a big city and never going outside of the city. You protect yourself from what is around you in the city, that you then don’t look at the bigger picture around you, you don’t get out and explore anything that is outside of your comfort zone, which then has you not truly seeing any true reality that is around you. This is kind of like being in denial, which has you making up your own reality, instead of living within true reality, yes there is that element of danger when we get out and explore within nature, it takes us away from our comfort zone, but if we never get out and explore, we will never truly understand what is around us, nor will we ever truly understand the true reality of this journey through life, as we walk our paths within our comfort zones, protecting us from what is around us and losing touch with the ” cycles of life”.

” To look deeper into what is around you, you first have to refocus and get out and explore new things”

” This journey of life is like a deck of cards, which we all get lost within the shuffle”

” Denial keeps us in our comfort zone, which then has us making up our own reality”

” The life cycle of this journey through life is something we all need to understand better, to move forward better and stronger”

Be prepared and ready for all that may cross your path

a pile of snow with a mountain in the background: APTOPIX Everest Death

The World’s highest peak that is mount Everest is a mere 29,029 feet, but what is even more important is the death zone of that mountain, the zone where you need to be prepared and totally know of what you are doing is 26,000 feet, at the death zone elevation is where anything can happen and you need to be hyper-vigilant of your surroundings at all times, not too mention what is happening to yourself in the way of elevation changes as well. There is no messing around hiking this mountain and at no time, should this mountain be used as a conversation piece to brag to others that, ” I have done something you haven’t”. even those in the most tip top shape have struggled hiking this mountain, simply because the elevation is the biggest factor in being totally prepared to hike this mountain.

Hiking this mountain and being above the 26,000 elevation mark is, kind of like a diver in the ocean going below a certain depth, the diver gets what is known as the Bends, when he surfaces he then has to get within a decompression chamber to decompress from the ” decompression sickness”, from ascending to quickly, even with the oxygen or the nitrogen in their tanks they still get this sickness, which is something that nobody climbing mount Everest even thinks about when they climb the worlds highest peak.

Right now the deaths on mount Everest is at an all time high and the Government of Nepal is not even thinking of making any changes to the rules? Right now if you show up with the $11,000 they will issue a permit to you, without even checking your mountaineering skills, or even the health condition of your present self, it is like all things today and about the money, especially for the small country of Nepal looking to survive within today’s world.

I put the blame squarely on all the social media platforms out there and the fact that people hike within areas without being totally prepared, just to gain a bigger presence on these platforms with more followers. Let’s look at a page on Facebook for instance, this page is called I hiked the 4,000 footers club in New Hampshire, this page has people posting pictures and bragging of their hike, with a lot of these hikers, not wearing the proper foot gear, or even carrying the proper equipment to be ready for whatever they may encounter, let’s go one step further here and the fact that, there is not enough adequate parking for all, so they park on the side of an interstate highway, just so they can put pictures up on their Facebook page or whatever social media platform they are using. Hiking anywhere within the white mountains of New Hampshire you need to be prepared for anything, especially the sudden changes in the weather, it can and will snow on the top of mount Washington in the summer and when you can’t find the trail because of the snow, then you need maybe a compass and even be able to see where you are just by looking at the sky, or just maybe remember your surroundings for the return trip. I noticed on my hikes a lot of times, people are looking in front of them for a trail marker and not looking at what is around them? What happens if that marker is not there for whatever reason? What do you do then? When you are above the tree line you see a pile of rocks, what are they? And what are they called? They are Carns and they mark the trail for you to follow.

This picture of the people climbing mount Everest, what is the biggest problem of this picture? If you said the line of people and being way to close to each other, you are 100% correct, because if one of them misstep and fall, now you have a domino effect of all going down and with the cliffs on both sides……………. Well with common sense you can see what is going to happen there. Even with the oxygen they are breathing from the tanks on their backs, that is still not enough at the altitude they are in, then you add in the fact that, when these people get to the top they want to take a ” selfie” and most definitely, they want people to see who they are in the picture, so they then take off the mask of oxygen for the picture, but they don’t realize that, even the seconds that the mask is off, is seconds to long at that elevation. Your body at that elevation is already changing and parts of the body is shutting down, because we are not cut out for this type of rigorous endeavor, no matter how much in shape you think you are? Just like all the deaths happening on mount Everest, there are deaths happening in the white mountains of New Hampshire, simply because people are embarking on these hikes without being properly prepared, for what ever might cross their paths, whether it’s the proper foot gear, to enough water to stay hydrated, or even the proper snacks for protein, or even carrying the right gear in the pack, just in case your stuck in a weather condition that changes drastically, no matter what the hike, you need to be well prepared and ready for anything that you may encounter along your path, of any journey you embark on.

” Be prepared is the biggest of the Boy Scout’s motto and something we all need to adhere to within the journey of life”

” A traffic jam of people on the worlds tallest peak, is something that should never be and dangerous for all stuck within the traffic jam”

” Just because you have $11,000 should never be all it takes to hike the worlds tallest peak”

” Social media platforms are being used in a way they were never designed to be used, because we the people misuse everything we touch without thinking through the ramifications of our actions”

The Camping Time Zone

With camping season upon us once again, you are now entering into another dimension, a dimension that puts you into a whole different zone, a zone known as the camping zone, which also comes with it’s own time zone, the time zone you are now on as you are camping within nature is known as, ” Camp Time”!!!

When you are on camp time, you just go with the flow of the day, without being pressured into any set time, like within the 9 to 5 where everything is measured by time, even as you sit to take a lunch break. Time is money is all you hear within the 9 to 5, well within the camp time, it’s about relaxing and doing when you feel like doing, sitting back and totally enjoying what’s around you, like the sounds of nature which are soothing and calming, if only the 9 to 5 time was more like the camp time, then just maybe, as we walk our paths through this journey, we could do so with less stress and with less stress, maybe we would all get along and totally share the love within, with each other every day.

This picture is what true camping is about, a little speck of land within the true beauty of nature. The lake, the mountains, the wilderness, all this and more as you become one with nature and totally unwind from the daily 9 to 5. Within this picture is nothing but peace and serenity and as you become deep within camp time, you can clearly hear all the sounds of nature all around you, the sounds of nature vary day to day, but the one constant would be, being surrounded by the peace and serenity, as through that constant, the stress of the 9 to 5 melts from your body, the clouds within your mind then becomes clear and you see more deeply everything that is around you.

Just as the Twilight zone is fiction on television, the camp time zone is reality and puts you into a place that is real, a place where you can actually feel and touch everything around you, pitch a tent, set the camp site, now build a campfire, all that is left is to simply relax within nature and with each new day, embark on a different adventure within nature, then back at camp for the nightly meal and relaxing by the camp fire. Some may camp within a trailer on wheels, with the comforts of home, that is camping yes and depending on the location? When you are in a trailer park with a lot of people and many activities to do, this is not true camping, as now there is no ” Camp Time”, with each activity having you on their time zone, true camping is deep within the woods of mother nature, where the only activities are the ones you make up as you go, with the daily walks within nature on your camp time, let’s not forget that within the woods of mother nature and with less people, you are now surrounded with true peace and serenity, to listen to the true sounds of nature, so you can truly heal from the stress of the 9 to 5, let the stress melt from your body and the clouds within your mind disappear, as you see more clearly of everything around you. The body can not handle all the stress we feed to it, just that we never enter enough into the ” Camping Time Zone”.

” The camping time zone is real, unlike the the twilight zone on TV”

” This journey is not about being stressed all the time, stress is not healthy and will keep us from being truly of who we are”

” The mountains, the lake, the wilderness, the bear, the moose……….Oh My!!!!! ”

” Let’s all enter within the Camp Time Zone more often, become one with mother nature, letting this journey be more peaceful and happy”

Escape within the beauty of Mother Nature

The quiet serenity and beauty all around you, that is exactly what escaping within Mother Nature is all about. Leaving the daily grind even if it is for a short time, it is time much needed with all the drama and ugliness within the daily grind. Camping season is right around the corner and having reservations for a camp site on Memorial weekend, I simply can not wait to unwind and totally relax within the beauty of Mother Nature.

The beach in this picture may be a bit rocky, but it is a beach that you can enjoy all to yourself, a beach to sit and watch the Eagles fly by and on occasion, swoop down into the water for it’s daily meal. Then there is the Loon swimming by as it sings back and forth with other Loons, what a beautiful sound to just sit and relax, as you listen to them in their habitat. Then if your lucky enough without being to noisy, a friendly Moose will come out of the woods to the lake shore, for a drink and a bath. Now let’s not forget all the different sounds you hear within woods behind you, some sounds you would normally never hear within the daily grind, Mother Nature is pure beauty and never ever forget!!! You are now within the homes of the animal kingdom, which you need to respect, just like you would want others to respect your home as they come to visit you.

As quiet as this picture is, it is really this quiet as you sit on this rocky beach in person, while you sit in your comfy chair on this beach and take in all the beauty around you, you will actually feel the stress of the daily grind leave your body, the clouds of your judgment, will become clear as you look out within the beauty, the transition from the daily grind, to the beauty of Mother Nature is the most beautiful thing and we all need more of it.

When you take to the outdoors and within the beauty of Mother Nature, you also have to explore and see things you never will see within the daily grind, when I lived in the great state of Colorado, I had a 4×4 pick up and would venture in the back country and as high as 13,000 feet on a mountain, the beauty I would come across would take your breathe away, plus from time to time, come across a few Ghost towns, dating back in time from the gold rush days, I would stop and get out of the truck to walk around these towns, as I then would gain a big respect for those of our past, seeing that a lot of the buildings were still standing strong today. I would also come across some animals I would never see otherwise as they lived within the high country, like the Doll sheep, and the Ram sheep, even mountain lion and antelope, plus some pretty big bull Elk, it is so beautiful to see these kind of animals in their elements. I came across this herd of Ram sheep one time, as some where actually ramming each other with the horns, I must say I was getting a headache watching this, as in the daily grind you would never get a chance to see this at all.

There is so much to the beauty of Mother Nature and unless you get out and explore this beauty, you will never see or witness this beauty, from the daily grind that we all get caught up within. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all become too programmed within our daily grinds, to the point that some never get out to see the true beauty of Mother Nature, When you think about it……………. That is too sad because, we then become too tense and have no idea of what truly relaxing really is. When we are too tense that is when we bring all the ugliness we see today to each other, we then think that this is the norm? This is not truly of who we are, who we truly are…………….. Are people with love in our hearts that keeps us warm inside, when we become too tense, we then never truly feel the warmth of this love and then never share it with each other. The warmth of the love within your heart, is Jesus Christ our savior and his love for us, he loves us all deeply and equally, no matter of who you are, we within today’s daily grind, never give ourselves a chance to truly feel this love, as we become so engulfed, within the ugliness and hatred of today.

” Escape to the beauty of mother nature, to truly relax and get back in touch with the warmth of love within your heart from Jesus Christ”

” The rocky beach at first glance may look rough, but it’s true beauty will surround you with plenty of peace and serenity”

” The sounds of mother nature will totally relax you, as the stress of the daily grind will melt from your mind, body and soul”

” It may be a ghost town now, but at one point it was a bustling little town, full of joy, happiness and love”

The True Christmas Spirit

           Just as this little tree is growing within this old tree stump, the True Christmas Spirit, grows deep within each of us, so we can become healthy, while we share the love of the Spirit with each other, moving forward throughout this journey of life. 

            The Christmas season is a lot more than just going to a store, fighting off the masses, just so we can buy the perfect gift, is there really a perfect gift? The only gift that should matter during this special time of year is, the gift of ourselves towards one another, especially those who are closest to us and are our Family, for whom we have a special bond, that we built a strong family foundation, that truly lasts the test of time. When you truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus deep within your soul, then your heart will always be filled with this same warmth, especially when you truly have the faith in Jesus, as when he came to us, walked his journey truly showing us all that this love really exists. Jesus walked his journey with nothing but the faith of his father, the God that created us all, so we can walk our paths of this journey. With God our father, Jesus is our brother, teaching us that with faith, good will always win out over evil, leaving us all within peace and happiness always, throughout this journey we all walk. 

                  Now that we all decorate our tree’s, string the lights and get within the Christmas Spirit, Let us all truly feel the love deep within ourselves and not only share this love, but truly extend this love to last all year………….Every year. Through the love and faith in Jesus Christ, we all can walk in the peace and happiness always. The true Christmas Spirit doesn’t have to be just part of a season, as it can be very much a part of the journey we all walk, the Spirit lives within each of us, just we have to truly feel it, with complete faith in Jesus as well as ourselves. If we can beautifully decorate the Christmas tree within our homes, then we should easily, decorate the tree of love within us and feel it’s warmth every day of every year, throughout all our paths of this journey through life. 

                     Christmas is not that time of year to be spending within a store and waiting for inspiration to strike for the perfect gift. The perfect gift is already within us, maybe let the inspiration strike with a special hand crafted, made by yourself gift, that will Trump any gift, within any store. Inspiration can come from anywhere and when it does, plus when we just let the inspiration mix with the love within us, then we can create anything, that will totally help with spreading this Christmas cheer, not just throughout us all, but throughout all our paths, of this journey through life. 

” The true Christmas Spirit lives within us all and all we have to do is, truly feel it” 

” May we all truly feel the true Christmas Spirit and spread it totally throughout our paths of this journey through life” 

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring, as we all wait for that special person to visit us all” 

” Santa Claus lives within us all, as we truly feel the warmth of love and unleash it to all for who is around us” 

The Majestic………The Grand

                Every time I look at this hotel, I think about Stephen King’s the shining, a glamorous but yet old hotel rich in history. This hotel has been around as long as I can remember. The only thing though, I have never stayed at this hotel, when I wander up that way, I am usually staying at one of the mountain huts, or within a tent set up at my base camp, for a good nights rest by night and a good hike throughout the daylight hours.  I am sure this hotel, known as the Mount Washington hotel, has it’s own stories to tell, just like the hotel in the movie the shining, plus they both have something in common and that is, they both are surrounded by beautiful mountains and fresh air.                    When I was younger and hiking through these great mountains by day and staying within the huts on the mountains by night, the crew at these huts would embark in an after dinner story telling time and usually these stories were of the Ghost story kind, now whether these stories were fact or fiction? is totally up to the ones listening. With as old as the Mount Washington is, I am sure it to has it’s own Ghost stories to tell. Maybe one day I will stay at this hotel and totally take in the full ambiance of the hotel, including listening to the hotel itself and what it has to say, including all the old structures with it’s crackling and squeal of the hinges, when you open and close the door, but maybe the maintenance man has been busy with the grease, greasing up the old parts of the hotel?                       These mountains in the back drop of this grand hotel are part of the Presidential range, within the white mountains of New Hampshire, with all the mountains on the range being named after past Presidents and yes of course, Mount Washington is the tallest at 6,288 feet right behind the grandest of hotels in the area. The white mountains are like a second home to me, as I have hiked quite a few of them, I am also very close to being able to say I have hiked all the mountains in New Hampshire over 4,000 feet, with only five peaks left. True…………..yes I am getting older, but this beauty within these mountains, is what keeps me young and what keeps me healthy everyday. Now that don’t mean I don’t have aches and pains, especially with all the miles I have acquired on my feet, but it is good aches and pain, as I totally enjoy being outside and one with Mother Nature.                         I have also lived in Colorado for a few years and yes it is an awesome place to live, while you also explore the back country of the state. I would either take trips in my 4×4  up some quite steep and rural mountain passes, or I would set base camp and take on some great hiking as well, where I have been at the highest of my lifetime so far at 14,500 feet, up a mountain named, mount Albert. Totally different than the White mountains, each has their own beauty, as they to, like we Humans are very unique to each other. You can not compare one to another, as they both are very special places to me and within my heart forever, which no one can take that from me. We all have our own special places that we hold dear, these places may mean nothing to others, but to us………..ourselves, they mean the world us and no one can take these places from us. Plus as we walk our paths through this journey of life and with all the ups and downs of the journey, we can in our minds go back to these places, to truly have some solitude within ourselves, as we take the pitfalls of the journey and turn them into big success, to keep moving forward better and stronger, throughout the rest of our journey through life.  ” Having solitude for us is important, as it helps us heal within to be better and stronger moving forward”  ” Get out and explore, who knows you just may connect with your inner self and discover great solitude and happiness”  ” Ghost stories fact or fiction, you be the judge of what you truly believe”  ” Feeling of accomplishment will help you move forward better and stronger always” 

Explore the true beauty of Mother Nature

We within this society are so consumed with all the drama and the crap we see around us today, that we totally have forgotten that, there is so much more to this journey through life, just that we have to really get out and explore all that is around us and not, what we think this journey has surrounded us with.

With what the so called left media puts forth in front of us, is not truly of what this journey is all about, if only these so called journalists of these drama ridden publications, would get away from their whacked out agendas and truly get back to being a true journalist, like writing from the heart, instead of writing for an agenda, then just maybe we all can get back to truly walking our paths through this journey, in the peace and happiness it is supposed to be, then we can explore all the true beauty around us, without being bombarded with their drama full agendas.

Since the beginning of man, we were all born to explore, get out and truly see all that is around us, but with the way this society has been bombarded with what the left bias media brings to us within their agendas, has us all staying within our comfort zones, instead of getting out and exploring all that is around us. The media wants to try to control us with their fake words, so they can seem more powerful then all that is around them, they twist around the spoken word, so we then fear all who is around us, they also want to try to control how we think, so we than can not think for ourselves. The left bias media wants to control everything within this society, so then the top Executives of these publications, can have all the money they want, to live their plush lifestyles, while the rest of us to them, are just the pawns of the chess board of life.

Then there are these Corporate companies for whom we all work for, that for them to make the big dollars, they totally control each of us and have us make just enough to survive, while all the top Execs make the big money and live their exotic lifestyles, with the fancy vehicles. A lot of the times we work beyond the 9 to 5, which then has us too tired to get out and explore, which then has us stay within all the drama and crap of this society, without getting out within Mother Nature and truly, exploring all her true beauty, then escaping the drama and ugliness, for the peace and serenity of Mother Nature. True Mother Nature can unleash her fury from time to time, but for the most part, her true beauty, can and will totally relax and help us clear the cob webs from our mind, body and souls, so we all can truly walk our paths of this journey through life, to be better and stronger moving forward, instead of staying within our comfort zones and not exploring all the true beauty around us.

Some of getting out within Mother Nature takes work, the hiking, the canoeing, or the Kayaking, or even just a simple nature walk, but this kind of work within mother nature, will have us within the peace and serenity, instead of within the drama and ugliness of our society, this is how we truly relax, clear the cob webs within our minds, so we then can totally relax our souls and bodies, with all the daily stress simply melting away completely, as we can feel the stress leaving our bodies. Sometimes we have these life events that come to us and totally control of who we truly are, this is when we need to get out and away totally from the ugliness of this society, so we can truly heal, from the pain and hurt that these events may bring. There are some that totally lash out toward others around them, as they hide deeply within the pain and hurt of the events that have scarred them so, they hide their true selves deep within as they don’t want others to see their pain, so they then lash out, to try to deflect their pain, onto to all those around them, which then has the rest of us fearing getting out and truly exploring, the true peace and serenity that is around us.

 

” The fury of Mother nature can be great, but Mother nature also has much more beauty for us all to explore”

” The peace and serenity of mother nature  is all around us, we just have to get out and explore her true beauty”

” A true Journalist does not write for an agenda, that is the publication they write for that has them do that”

” To get out of your comfort zone, is to truly get out and be truly of who you are, while you explore the true beauty around you”
