There is a Destiny within the Journey

IMG_20150104_124946

 

 

This quote by the late Stuart Scott is an awesome quote, as you can change a few words, to have it go in whatever direction you want it to go in. Like you can take out the word Cancer and have something like this:

 

” You walk a path through this journey of life, By how you live and in the manner in which you live, so you can create your own destiny for which to live”

 

While walking through this journey, there will be many bumps that will bruise us, many obstacles that we need to get either over or around, sometimes we bring on these obstacles or bumps by our own in actions and sometimes they come from other sources? But either way this journey of life can be either as smooth as we want, or so bumpy, that we never truly give ourselves a chance to heal and move forward correctly.

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the TV show NCIS? This show has been on the air for sixteen seasons now, the writer’s of the show are some of the best writer’s of any show and the topics they write, as well as the episodes that air, are pretty much as real as you can get, within the reality of life. Then there are the Actors of the show, these Individuals are like a car salesman, they have to believe in and become one with the Character they play, to completely sell the show to all of us as the viewer, not too mention making a connection to all of us as we watch each and every week.

Pauley Perrette………… AKA  Abby Sciuto, throughout her journey of all sixteen seasons on the show, has made millions of connections and has become a role model to many who have watched this show of NCIS. She has inspired so many and with her Goodbye episode this past Tuesday night,  there were many teary eyed people throughout the viewing Audience of the show. Abby’s journey throughout the show was of, kindness, empathy and compassion, as she worked her magic of forensics while she helped the team solve a lot of crimes. No matter how ugly each case was, Abby always saw the good and it showed in her actions, her sweet kindness made all the ugliness, look as beautiful of as a Rose. As Abby was on the show, Pauley Perrette is the same in real life, it was like Abby was actually playing herself on the show, which is how this show became so unique and how the show became so popular throughout the World. Yes we will all miss Abby, but as she moves forward on her journey away from NCIS, we too shall move forward throughout our journey along our paths. We all will still watch the show, as these writer’s keep bringing us back, with their creativity and suspense they keep us in. It is just like this journey, the Character’s and the events may change, but the journey keeps moving forward for all.

True that NCIS is a TV show and we all watch it in our realities, but when you have a writer’s room full of very creative writer’s and willing to explore topics of reality within the show, now you have the makings of one of the best shows ever, in the history of this invention called a television and the Character’s within the show, do their part within the show, to sell the show to each of us week after week. True it sucks when you watch a show and make a connection with one or two of the Character’s then they leave the show for whatever reason, but as they move forward with their journey’s, we to must move forward with our journey’s, as we all walk our paths within our reality, throughout this big journey called life.

 

” A good quote can stand the test of time and inspire us in many ways”

” The destiny within the journey varies between you and I, you just need faith in yourself and hope within the journey”

” The NCIS writer’s are very creative Individuals and know how to create the perfect words to keep us all in suspense from week to week”

” You make connections with certain Actor’s and when they leave the show you miss them deeply but you both move forward within reality”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s clear the deadwood and end Bullying now,

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

There is so much more to walking the path we chose through this journey of life. We all at some point within our lives have been Bullied or have Bullied another, the thing we never talk about especially those who have been Bullied is, the fact that when you are being Bullied, you are shamed into thinking maybe something is wrong with me? Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all, when we are shamed we tend to forget who we truly are, for which we then put forth a fake self, just to try to fit in and be accepted. When we are shamed by another and bullied to the point we try to avoid others, we then become as lonely as this tree with all the deadwood around it.

There is so much true beauty around us as well as the beauty within each of us, that when we are Bullied and are shamed from the Bullying, we never get a chance to truly see any of the beauty around us or within. We walk our paths of this journey for we ourselves, it’s not about making others happy, it is more about being truly happy deep within ourselves, so we than can be happy on the outside, as we take this happiness to all that is around us. What a Bully never see’s when he is in the process of controlling what’s around him is, he never see’s any beauty either as to him there is nothing but power and control, plus the fact that a Bully has lost the feelings deep within himself like, the feelings of empathy or compassion, because if he felt either of these, he would never be a Bully anymore, to terrorize anyone of us.

The effects from a Bully can and will last a lifetime, they will leave scars and these scars can’t be seen, as they are deep within us, whether we want to admit to them or not. The scars from being shamed by a Bully are not just a scar that, with a band aid they heal and disappear from sight, these scars are emotional and come with great pain and hurt. The pain and hurt coming from shame, will have us become someone we truly are not, we ourselves won’t even recognize ourselves as we hide deep within ourselves and put forth this fake self, to try to protect ourselves from further pain and hurt, we will rationalize away anything coming from the shame as well as , going deep into denial, which then has us not even accepting our actions moving forward.

Bullying is nothing more than having the power and control over someone/something, it is also nothing more than using fear to have that power and control, a Bully is also a Coward as they can not even accept their own issues and then, they take it out on someone around them. A Bully can be anybody and you could be standing next to one now? The true way too stop a Bully is look them in the eye , show no fear as they try to make you fear, show them that they can not hurt or control you, as they then will cower away, like the true Coward for whom they are. There are Bully’s everywhere whether Domestic or abroad, we all have to face one sooner or later, now through Social media there are even the worse kind of Bully, known as the Cyber Bully, to which we never face, because they are a true coward that hides behind their device, these individuals can’t face any issues, let alone their own issues and hiding behind a device proves that, the problem is, they will do and say anything to have us become a slave to their words, so they than can ( in their own minds) seem as powerful to anything along this journey, but in realty they are the weakest link to this Society and need to be treated as such, so they will disappear from all our paths of this journey through life.

 

” A Bully is nothing more than a Coward that try’s to inflict fear on all that is around them”

” With a Bully it is all about power and control, when we don’t give them that, then they disappear like the tumble weeds in the wind of the desert”

” Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all and when we become shamed we then lose sight of who we truly are”

” Cyber Bullying is the new way of a Coward to try to control each of us, time we nip it in the bud and end their reign of terror”

” We all want the power and control, but when we forget of truly who we are, then our actions become inaction’s throughout our paths of this journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time to lift the clouds of corruption and hypocrisy……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

We within this Society are caught smack in the middle of way too much hypocrisy and corruption, that is deep within our Governments and the left Bias Media. These two groups will stop at nothing in order to keep their agendas as well as keep their power over all that is around them. Donald Trump was elected President of this great country by the silent majority, that finally awoken and went against all the, hypocrisy and corruption that is deep within the walls of our Government.

Donald Trump didn’t run just to notch another feather in his cap, he ran for each and every full blooded American, so we can see through all the clouds of the corruption and hypocrisy, so we than can make better judgments on who we vote for moving forward. I am all in on the two party system, as it is ” Supposed” to keep all within the parties honest and trustworthy? Somewhere along our paths as we walk this journey through life, we all have lost the honesty and trustworthiness, that we all need to move forward better and stronger. Ever since Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, the party to the left has clearly been doing all they can to take him down and out of the office of President, now I am an Independent and I vote for whoever I think can handle the job for which they run for and it doesn’t matter which party they belong to? But through all this ” drain the swamp” talk and fact checking all that the  media brings out, has me thinking, just maybe I will never vote for a Democrat ever again, simply because they are the most corrupt and totally full of hypocrisy, every time they open their mouths.

The left Bias Media is so Bias and so into their own agendas, that they can not see clearly enough, to not only bring us the truth, but they can not even see the truth if it slapped them in the face. The only thing that the left media truly wants to bring to us and is a big part of their agenda is, more drama to an already drama full society for which we walk our paths within. Only because it is the drama that puts the money in their pockets, so they can live their plush lifestyles, while the rest of us struggle daily just to make ends meet. If you think the media cares for you and I, then I have a news flash for you and my news flash is of truth and reality, that is the media cares nothing for you and I and only for themselves to keep living their plush lifestyles.

Then their are the members of the left Democratic party, these Individuals only care of themselves also and will do and say whatever they have to, so we the American Citizen will vote for them and put them into the office they choose to run for. All our Government we vote for and the ones that work for them within Washington DC, is nothing but a big game of power and the ones that truly lose the game, without even getting a chance to play is, we the people of this great country of America. But!!! what the Elected officials and the left media found out in the last Presidential election is, we the people actually still control the power, even though we are not invited to play the game with them. The Clinton’s with their foundation money, paid big money to rig an election so Hillary would be President? How did that work out? As the American people finally awoke and voted against all the corruption. Now both parties are corrupt in their own way, but the Democratic party is the most corrupt and will stop at nothing, so they can try to obtain all the power over all within this Society. Donald Trump is not your normal kind of Politician, he is a businessman that wants results to all the problems, he wants to fix all the wrongs, so we can all be better for it moving forward, as a businessman he wants solutions to all the wrongs, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward.

Now this guy Mueller, someone that is supposed to be running a clean and fair investigation? Well!!! It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to see that all he is doing is, clearly showing the World of just how abuse of power works. Because he can’t find any collusion on the part of Trump, he is now pulling out all the stops to do whatever he has to do, to find anything at all.  What he needs to do is, get out of the pockets of the Clinton foundation and actually investigate as he is suppose to be doing and investigate the Clinton’s. When you look deeply into the corruption of the Democratic party, all the roadways turn right back into the Clinton’s driveway, so why are they getting away with it for so long? Nobody is above the long arm of the law and everybody should start taking more responsibility for their actions, stop pointing the finger of blame, stop saying one thing and do the complete opposite and simply, we all need to get back to being honest and trustworthy to each other once again, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

 

” The clouds of corruption and hypocrisy have clouded all our judgments for way to long, time to clear the air and see clearly at what we look deeply into”

” We need to end all the political correction, so we than can not fear the truth, as we speak the truth with conviction”

” Washington DC is nothing but a power game, it is time to end the game so we all here in America, can be on the same playing field”

” Nobody is above the law and we all need to start being accountable for our actions, stop pointing the finger of blame and owning our actions”

 

 

 

 

 

The Hidden trail……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relax… Let go… trust the flow within the journey

 

 

 

 

We within this Society get so caught up in the now, that we then forget to just simply trust our instincts, trust our guts, we get so wound up that we never actually let ourselves truly relax, as we totally need in order to be free of all unwanted stress. Just as this Kayak is flowing within the wind and the waves bumping it from side to side, The driver of this Kayak and the Kayak itself, are one in the same, totally entrusting of the wind and the waves.

Starting from way back in the beginning of Mankind, there was Adam and Eve, as they walked the land with all the fruits, they were not supposed to eat from the apple tree, but one day Eve enticed Adam and the rest is history, as the flood gates opened, that we now know as Sin. God entrusted them to not eat from the apple tree, but they could not resist and now from their actions, they have to own up and live with their actions moving forward. Just because you have made a bad choice, or maybe even a costly mistake, it is not the end of the World, God will forgive you totally for your mistakes or your sins, you simply just have to, own up, accept responsibility of your actions to move forward and not backwards.

We all throughout this journey of life have created many sins and made many mistakes, we are not perfect, but when we totally have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, There is no sin large enough nor any mistake complicated enough, that will detour us, from walking our paths through this journey of life. This journey is only of what you make it and will be either hard or easy, the choice is yours to make, just as it is also your choice to not show remorse, for any of your mistakes or sins. This journey has many twists and turns, but in no way should you be restricted from making any choices and when the mistakes come in, don’t try to hide them, as this is how we learn and move forward, to be better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we truly relax and let go of all the crap that may weigh us down, we will totally find that we can totally trust in ourselves, trust in Jesus Christ, which now we to can flow, very much like the Kayak within the water. Through Prayer we have learned to trust and have faith in Jesus Christ and with this faith, it will always give us hope in all we do as well. So yes Sin and mistakes will come to us, but when we totally accept them as such, take responsibility for our actions no matter how big or small, while we keep the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, so we than can have the hope to move forward throughout this journey and while we, walk in true peace and happiness always.

 

” Relax, trust, let go, so you can flow as smooth as the water flows down the stream”

” Sin and mistakes are par for the course along this journey, it’s what helps us learn and move forward better and stronger”

” Jesus Christ will always forgive us us for our sins and our wrongs, but first we have to forgive ourselves to receive his blessings and forgiveness”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Journey within the Journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

There are many journies within this journey through life, the problem within this society of today is, we let all the ugliness consume us so much that, we really never get a chance to truly explore all the journey’s, which then keeps us locked within our own little worlds, as we think this will keep us safe from all the pain and hurt? True it may keep us some what safe, but not from all, this will only make us more isolated and not able to properly interact with each other. You can clearly see by all the shootings and bombings out there, that there are some who clearly can’t see through the clouds of their judgments, because they have become so isolated within themselves, that they have lost their ability to love and show empathy, for anything/anybody around them.

The latest of this guy putting bombs in packages and the fact through an ongoing investigation, is that he was frustrated with his life? Really!!! And nobody around him saw the red flags popping up? There are always red flags for any kind of behavior we may or may not make, just that we choose to ignore these flags, as we think it will keep us safer? The only way we can be truly safe is, acknowledge the red flags, get the proper help for ourselves or whom ever shows the flags, then we can properly fix what we need to fix, as we than can move forward, throughout any journey within this journey of life.

There are many journey’s within our journey of life, we have the journey throughout our chosen careers, then the journey of where we vacation, the simple daily journey we take to and from our careers etc……. through these many journey’s there is a lot of ugliness that may cross our paths, it then becomes about how we deal with the ugliness, that then has us truly being of who we are, or becoming someone for who we are not? It is really not of how we avoid the ugliness, but how we fix the ugliness, to minimize it’s effects for the now and the later, so we all can enjoy these many journey’s within this journey of life.

We all have our places we go to re-energize, clear our minds, to totally relax our minds, body and souls. For me it is the time I spend within nature, whether canoeing like in this picture, hiking a mountain to reach the summit, camping within the wilderness away from the daily grind, or maybe just a simple nature walk? This is how I find true peace and escape from the ugliness that consumes us in our daily grind. The time we do spend in the daily grind and to not let it consume us so, maybe take up a kind of activity, like maybe bowling in a league? This gives you the sense of competition, while it keeps you focused enough to make good shots and beat who you are competing against. There are many ways to escape the ugliness around you, instead of letting it consume you and turn you into someone you truly are not.

When we walk our paths through this journey and we let any kind of ugliness consume us, this is a huge red flag that needs to be addressed. There is nothing that is worth we ourselves, losing a big part of who we are. When we take any action at all along our paths, we first should think through that action and if it involves bringing harm to anybody around us, this is another red flag that needs to be addressed. We all have had some red flags in our lives, the problem then lies with the way we address the flags, fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward better and stronger, within peace and happiness, through whatever path we choose, along this journey through life.

 

” The journey within the journey is a way for us to unwind, re-energize, clear our minds, to walk in peace and happiness always”

” Red flags are the signs sent from Jesus for us to fix what we need to fix, as we move forward in peace and happiness”

” Never let any ugliness consume you, as it will only destroy you from the inside out”

” When there is a red flag then throw in a white flag, to surrender and fix what you need to fix”

 

 

 

 

 

 

May the Lenten Journey bring us Peace

See the source image

” And when I am lifted up from the Earth, I will draw everyone to myself”.

*** John 12:32 ***

 

May the Lenten journey bring you closer to the Lord, may you totally feel his love that is deep within your heart and soul, for which you need not look any further than yourself. Then as you feel the love of God within you and become soothed by the warmth, then let us all spread this Love with each other, instead of this hatred, that is ripping us apart.

Love is in the air and no it is not a red heart with Cupid’s arrow going through it, it’s the true love from Jesus Christ to us all, who walk a path through this journey of life. Jesus came to us and sacrificed for us all, he taught us so many things and with his teachings came his true love for us all, no matter of who you were. The biggest thing Jesus showed us, was how too resist Temptation, as it is everywhere and will try to control who we truly are. This Temptation is just Satan trying to steer us away from Jesus, so he can bring hatred and ugliness, instead of the true beauty and love that Jesus brings.

Just as God our Father gave us his one and only son………… Jesus Christ. Maybe to one day? Jesus will bring to us his son, so we of this Society being so removed from his journey, can truly see and feel his love deep within our hearts and souls. We so truly need this. as just like the Society back then, there is way to much Temptation, hatred and ugliness, at every turn along our paths of this journey. With so many that have wandered away from the house of the Lord, I think it is time we revisit, see what has changed and what has stayed constant? Just maybe if we all make the trek back to the house of the Lord, we all can get back in touch with who we truly are, which is someone who is nothing but love, happiness and joy, with at no time has, any kind of hatred or ugliness. These are learned from somewhere and it is time to unlearn them, so we all can move forward, in the Peace of the Lord always and forever.

May the waterfall of this picture, cleanse us all and wash away our sins, so we than can move forward in Jesus Christ, truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this love with each other and not, this hatred or ugliness, that consumes us now. The good will always prevail, just we so need to have complete faith in, not just ourselves but in Jesus Christ as well, so we than can have the hope in all we do moving forward. If you look deeply into the water going over the falls, you can clearly see the strands of water, instead of just looking and seeing black….white……then black again. The white of the falls represents the paths of each of us, as all our sins, pain and suffering gets washed away, so we than can get back in touch with who we truly are, with zero distractions, as we walk this journey through life, in Peace and Happiness always.

 

” The journey of Lent isn’t just for Catholics or Christians, as Jesus Christ welcomes all to come to the journey”

” The Lenten journey is all about love, peace, sacrifice and a self examination of your inventory deep within”

” The love of Jesus Christ is within us all, time we all truly feel it and unleash it’s true power”

” Jesus is around us everywhere, we just have to see his signs and truly feel his love, then we can move forward with true strength always”
