The journey of Lent/Daylight savings

As the days become longer with the light of day and as we walk this journey through Lent, we now know that the season of camping is right around the corner, the season for us all to escape the daily grind and venture to the out doors, where Mother Nature is ready to show us her true beauty. Primitive camping where you pitch a tent and as you lay down to sleep within your sleeping bag, now you can listen to the heart beat of the Earth, listen to all the nightly sounds, like an owl waking from their sleep as they only can see clearly at night, maybe if your lucky you can hear the whispers of the night or maybe a nearby stream will comfort you to sleep with it’s running water?

With your camp site all set up and the camp fire ready for the night sky, you now can plan your day for tomorrow, maybe a hike up a mountain to see as far as you can from the summit of the mountain and as you walk up the trail, you may see some scenes you will never see within the daily grind. Yes it is true a hike can be a lot of work, but it is work much different than the daily grind, it is work that can relax you in the right frame of mind, let alone that it will help clear your mind from all the ugliness that comes with being within a society full of much ugliness. To escape within Mother Nature is a great way to unwind and totally feel the stress melt from your body. We within this ugly society and through the dark days of Winter, let way too much effect us and let all the ugliness consume us to the point that, we become bitter to all that is around us, we forget that there is a whole lot more to this journey of life than, what we see in our daily grind. Yes we all need a paycheck to pay the bills and survive in our lives, but we become so consumed with that…………. we then totally forget to take some ” me” time to unwind and cure our mind, body and soul, so we can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

Within this picture is so much peace and serenity, when you sit by the fire and take it all in, look out within the beauty in front of you, you can actually feel the stress leave your body and as the stress leaves you, now you can actually hear all that is around you, listen to the sweet sounds of the different wildlife around you, even hear the fish jump out of the water, hear the Eagles soar by with the greatest of ease, the loons chatting back and forth from a far, not too forget the many different birds singing their tunes throughout the echoes of the sky. There is so much beauty around you, you then forget of the daily grind and even though just for a short time, it is time you now can heal yourself from all the ugliness, heal yourself from what consumes you through the dark Winter days, so now you can clear the clouds from your judgments and totally heal your mind, body and soul from the stress of the daily grind.

Let’s not forget that when you escape to the beauty of Mother Nature, you are now within the home of many other different life forms on this planet, just like we live in our homes and we would hate for others to come in and disrupt our homes, we are now within the homes of so many animals within nature, like bear, moose, deer etc…. So as you set your camp always remember to respect their home, as we would want others to respect ours. Leave no trace while you are there and when you depart back to the daily grind, when you leave no trace when you leave, then you can come back to still more beauty, as Mother Nature is constantly changing with all within it. The plant life, the tree’s and even the animals, change all the time, just like we grow from our young ages, so does all within Mother Nature and it is a beautiful thing, to escape within nature and witness all the beautiful changes. Sometimes the changes to nature comes from violent weather, or maybe fire, but through these kind of changes, it may take some time, but the beauty does come back, for us all to enjoy once again. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with one of the great perks of this journey, is the taking of some time, to get out and escape the daily grind, to really enjoy the beauty of Mother nature, to be at peace and happiness with ourselves and as we then heal ourselves, to get back in touch with the love within us, so we than can share that love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Daylight savings may have us dread the loss of an hour, but we do gain more daylight to enjoy the great outdoors”

” Earth has a heart beat just like we do as well, mother nature has it’s beauty as do we as well”

” camping season is the chance for us all to escape the daily grind and relax to heal ourselves from the ugliness and see the true beauty of this journey”

” Mother nature has so much beauty within it, you can clearly see it all when you look deeply within what you see”

Quality of life along this journey

” Since from you shall come a Ruler, who is to Shepard my people Israel”.

Mt 2;6b

We all get so wrapped up in our Professional lives, that we forget to simply take some ” ME” time as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we grow up and become a productive member in this Society, we become all about our jobs, we become about making money so we can survive in this society to the point, we then become lost from all the true beauty all around us. Sometimes we don’t realize of what we are doing til it is too late, then when we finally wake up to our own realities, we get depressed of the fact that so much has passed us by and we haven’t even taken the time to enjoy any of it.

Now I totally get the fact that we need to work and build up our nest eggs, but what good is that nest egg, if we don’t take the ” ME” time to enjoy it? I get the fact that we find a Company to work in and are happy where we are, so we then work as much and often as we can, to earn all that we can, all while putting aside that “ME” time for later, but sometimes that later comes too us too late, then we look back at what we missed, of which we become depressed when we look back. There are also these life events that come to us with some being, small and mild while others taking control of us. We then bury our selves in our work of our jobs, to try to move forward without feeling the pain from these events? We then become lost within ourselves without taking any kind of “ME” time at all.

We all need this all important ” ME” time, from time to time. This is how we recharge ourselves, this is how we get out and explore all the true beauty around us, while we let this beauty heal us from our troubles, heal us from the stress of our work, so we than can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life. Sometimes this ” ME” time simply consists of, taking to Mother Nature with some camping and hiking, even if it is just you and Mother Nature, just getting out there and healing yourself from the daily grind. Sometimes it is finding a hobby like The sport of Bowling, something you grow to love and excel in, bowling in a league or two, then showing what you can do in a tournament on the weekends. When these activities are not there and we are lost within the clouds of our judgments, from the daily grind of our jobs, we then feel incomplete as a person, while all else passes us by.

I get the fact that we need some money to enjoy the ” ME” times, yes it is okay too build up the nest eggs, but it is also important to learn to balance your time between the work and the ” ME” time, without getting lost within the corporate world. The corporate world is fine, but sometimes we let it dictate where we are going, instead of us dictating where we want to go. Within this society we walk today and the way the corporate world changes daily, we then fear that the change will leave us on the outside looking in, which we then do whatever within our jobs, to what we think as becoming valuable to the company we work, but in reality these companies really, could care less of who we are, especially if we are not producing for them, this is when we get lost within and totally forget that all important “ME” time.

We all need to recharge and clear the cob webs from our minds from time to time, find an activity that helps us do just that, so we can focus on ourselves, as we heal ourselves from the daily grind, heal ourselves from the pains that come to hurt us throughout this journey, when we don’t take the time to recharge, then we lose focus on where we are going and more importantly, where we want to go moving forward. This journey through life really isn’t that hard when we do it correctly, but that is the problem……….. we get lost within the clouds of our judgments so much that, we let everything else dictate where we are going, instead of we ourselves dictating where we want to go.

” Good quality of life is we ourselves taking the proper ” ME” time to recharge and refocus”

” The corporate world will consume us if we let it, we just have to find the right balance between “ME” time and work time”

” A nest egg is good for the latter of the journey, as long as we don’t let the latter pass us by without enjoying it”

” We all need to recharge and clear our heads from time to time, so we can move forward better and stronger”

Power up/ Power down

Power is good when you are in a boat on the water, or maybe driving in a car on a road trip, anything mechanical needs power to survive, but we the people do not need power to survive, much to the sha-grin of what those in Government think? When you get voted in by the people of your country, it’s not about becoming more powerful than you once were, it is more about being a great leader, so the people who voted you in, will follow, with no regret.

When you have power it has nothing to do with being a leader, as much as our elected officials may have us think, especially those within the Democratic party, who are so far in denial that they have lost all sense of reality. These same Democrats who live within their gated communities that have state of the art security, but yet don’t want you or I to feel the same safety where we live? There is a major concern down on our southern border that needs to be addressed, but the Democrats don’t see it that way, they would rather push forth their agendas, then the agendas of the ones who put them within the walls of Washington DC. There is a shutdown in our Government right now, not a 100% shutdown, only about 70%? But during this shutdown the Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi goes to Hawaii for some fun in the sun, plus not too mention her flights to Washington DC and her home she puts in as travel expense, who do you think pays that expense? That’s right…………..we the people of this country, I think term limits are warranted, as there are some becoming way too comfy within the walls of Washington DC.

Right now there is a power struggle going on about putting up a wall along our southern border, this wall cost money and the Democrats won’t budge on the issue of no funding, even with all the facts out there of the drugs, the riff raff, the criminal Illegals all flooding this country, I do credit the Border Patrol for the job they are doing, but it is a tall task with miles and miles of Border to cover everyday. 90% of the Heroin coming into this country, is coming right through our southern border and even with many Americans over dosing, the Democrats still can’t see the real reality right in front of them, but instead they are focused more on letting the Illegals come in here, sponge of us the Tax Payer and even vote for them so they can stay in power. It is not about all the power you can gain, if you can not be a true Leader, then it is time for you to go and get out of the walls of Washington DC.

President Trump to this point is doing a stand up job, he has done more in two years, than the last three Presidents and the twenty four years combined between them, he wants so bad to achieve another promise to we the people, but the Democrats are standing in the way and think that there is no crises on our southern Border? I think it is time that we the people flood the phone lines whether cell or land line, of all the men and woman of Congress, to let them know of their denial and it’s time to wake up and get back in touch with reality, or we the people will vote them out, just as quick as they were voted in. When you think about having all the power within the walls of Washington DC, what you are really doing is, screwing the American people of their rights and their lives, without giving two shakes of a lamb’s tail, or having any care for who you may be walking all over. A true Leader does not do that, as a true Leader will get the job done without stepping on anybodies shoe shine.

President Trump is that Leader, okay he may be a bit rough with his words, but only because he does not believe in this ” Political Correction”. President Trump is a CEO and a Business man and he is running this country as a Business, just like all the Businesses that make up this country, he puts the right people around him that will best do the job, but like all CEO’s they are result driven and when you don’t give results………..you get replaced, like President Trump has done with some of who were around him. The Democrats don’t see this only because they are so far in denial, they really can’t see anything, not even themselves as they look in the mirror. The left Bias Media is much the same as they to have been spun out of the same web. I know there are a lot of others out there who are smart enough and not in denial to true reality, that totally see right through the Democrat hypocrisy, it is us that needs to be stronger, be patient, as this crap will not go on forever and hopefully someone within the Democratic party, finally wakes up to reality and snaps the others back to the same reality, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness once again, while we all move forward.

All these Democrats can live within their gated communities and feel safe, then why can’t you and I feel safe in our communities, we have the same right to this safety as they do, but we have to put up with the ” Illegals” because the Democrats are forcing them down our throats, whether we want them or not. There is a group coming through our Borders and they are brutal, they are MS 13 and they are coming here with no cares of who they hurt and they are not just hurting, but killing Americans as we speak, the left Bias media and the Democrats won’t speak of them, because of their denial, they simply can not see this, or just maybe they do not want to see this, because it will effect their agenda, that they want to cram down our throats. The time is now for each of us as Americans, to stand up against all this Hypocrisy, before America as we once knew it disappears from us, plus Socialism never works, all you need to do is, look within history at the old USSR, or the present Venezuela, Let’s all get behind President Trump and truly ” Make America Great Again.

” Socialism will never work, because nothing is ever free and always comes with a cost”

” Illegal Immigration means you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing”

” America was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way for us all to be in peace and happiness with less drama”

” It’s not as much about having the power, as it is all about being a true leader and truly leading without stepping on anybodies shoe shine”

Explore the true beauty of Mother Nature

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To Radicalize and Socialism is not truly of who we are…….

” As many as are led by the spirit of God, these are sons of God”

Romans 8:14

 

” God is at work, even in the midst of the problems, pessimism and frustrations of our day, he alone is sovereign and that is why we can trust him, even when the way seems dark”

Habakkuk 1:5

 

While we walk through this journey of life, we walk our paths within a Society of many. Each Society over time is made up of all walks of life, no matter of who you are or, whatever religion, gender, or ideological thoughts you have, not even of whatever radical thoughts you may have, the problem with today’s society is, we are all walking within the clouds of our judgments, we all think in our own minds that, our way is the only way, only because we have lost the faith in Jesus Christ, which means that we have lost the true direction to the path of righteousness, for which Jesus had showed us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

With some they may think they are above the law and operate in a reckless abandon kind of way, they cheat, steal, become very controlling and will abuse anybody that gets in their way. Some because they are so lost within themselves, will take complete advantage of, the weak minded and the young, so they can brainwash them to their sick and twisted ideologies and train them to not only be someone for who they truly are not, but have them do things that bring great harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, simply because they know no better. All Religions are religions of peace, but those in the Muslim religion who are very radical, have twisted around the words in the Koran,  to suffice their sick and twisted ideologies.  Just like all who walk through this society in this journey of life, you have your good as well as the bad, just that we have become so fixated on the bad, makes it only seem as if the bad is winning in this crucial fight throughout mankind. We the people of this society have created all this hatred and ugliness around us and we the people, can simply uncreate it as well, all we have to do is truly believe and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, to guide us to the path of righteousness, where we all can walk this journey in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

With all the Terrorist acts that are happening Worldwide, you can clearly see that there are many who simply are not truly of who they are, then the talks of this thing called ” Radicalization”, shows of just how some want to totally have the power and control over the rest of us. Radicalization is nothing but a few picking out those who are either weak minded or young, to totally brainwash them, so they than can carry out their sick and twisted ideologies and bring much harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, while through fear, they try to control everything around them. Back in the day to those who grew up through the 60’s, when they go against their up bringing, they were also known to be a Rebel and called a Radical of their time. Within today’s society and this Radicalization process, they have total taken this word and transformed it leaps and bounds, beyond what it truly means, The days of yesteryear and the times of today, are two totally different times, all the words and the ideologies, may be the same, it is just how they are translated within today’s society, which is nothing but creating more drama, hate and ugliness.

We all want to put our own stamp within the society for which we walk our journey in, but the problem then lies with the way we actually place the stamp within society. every society that has walked this journey through life, have their similarities to each other, true we can make improvements from one to another, but when we become too arrogant to realize that there have been mistakes made in past societies and we still repeat the process, shows of just how dumb we really are………. The solution is simple, it is okay to look back in the history of other societies, so we can fix what we need to fix properly, so we all than can move forward in our society, to not only be better and stronger, but walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve and with the total faith in Jesus Christ, we than can have the hope to do it with confidence in ourselves, as we truly feel the love of Jesus within our souls and share that love with each other.

 

” To radicalize is to be brainwashed, which in essence you are now a part of the “cult” of the dark side, known as the evil side”

” Socialism never works, just look at the country of Venezuela and all it’s ugliness”

” Words come to us in our minds first, then we speak the words with our mouths, somewhere in between we then put our own spin on the spoken word”

” The stamp of life we all so want to leave within the society we walk, the problem lies with how we actually go about placing that stamp”

 

 

 

 

I am calling you all out!!!!!!

” There shall be no night there,…… And they shall reign forever and ever”

Revelation 22:5

Hope for today:

” We can not cling to the success or failures of the past, each new day brings a new opportunity to live for Christ, to share his gospel and to build his kingdom, let’s be about our Father’s business”

Billy Graham

 

 

Now if we all took the Robin Williams approach to walking our paths through this journey of life, then just maybe this society would be a lot better for all? This was a man…… Who was hurting real pain deep inside himself, but yet had decided to through his humor, make the rest of us forget about the pain within us all. Robin Williams was blessed with the talent to truly entertain us all, whether it was comedy, or a movie like ” Dead Poet’s Society”, which for me was the best of all his movies. Robin Williams was truly sent from God for the benefit of us all, as he entertained us ( while he himself hurt deeply inside), so the rest of us can find relief from our pain, even if it was for a short time.

It is so sad that, we of this Society will go to any length to bring so much pain toward each other, that we as an Individual have lost totally the true feelings of, love and empathy that is within us all. When one fails at attempting something they are not used to, others will make fun of those failures instead of praising him to keep trying, which leads to many that will always quit, or never even try to make an attempt at something new. Then there are those that are very talented to play a sport, as they then turn professional and receive huge money to simply play a game.

Life within the National Football League is so screwed up today, simply because………. One has started a new thing of, taking a knee in protest, while disrespecting not just a song, not just a flag, but those who have died defending that flag, so the rest of us can live peacefully and as free as we want to be, doing whatever we want to do. Now with that said………. Through the whole off season of the NFL, there was not one Knee taker doing anything about whatever they were protesting to begin with, but now as the first pre-season  game has been played, they start back at taking a knee? The Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys said it best, ” Football is not the time or the place for anything, other than playing the game of Football”, I agree totally and now have much more respect for Zak Prescott.

Most of us all stop what we normally do on Sunday’s, to watch the game of football the game, not the game of football being a politically ridden agenda, of whatever the flavor of the week may be for their protests. Let’s look deeper and put it a little different, we all go to our jobs each day, we work for a corporate company correct? What would happen to us if we decide to stand on a soap box and bring protest to our jobs? Correct……… We would be fired for not doing our job as we should be doing, well an NFL team is owned by an owner and that Owner buys the team for one thing and that is to make good on his investment, so in essence the NFL team is a corporate company, that pays it’s employee’s to do a job and not stand on, or take a knee in protest. Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy winning the game, football is not a game of protest and nor do the fans watch the game just for the protest, we watch to see a great game of different strategies, being played by not just an employee of a team, but a well trained and talented athlete, that’s true focus is on winning the game and nothing more, which to me there is one more focused on winning a game, each and every game, he has proved it more than once and that Athlete is, the quarterback of the New England Patriots………. Tom Brady.

There may be some that call Tom Brady a ” cheater”? Really!!! Then I shall call you fat, dumb and stupid, simply because you are too lazy to put in the work each and every day as Tom Brady does, to be the best at whatever it is you do. Whether off season or in season, Tom works very hard every day, so he can be as good as he needs to be and his winning ways proves just that. My challenge to all those who feel the need to protest within the NFL is, try working as hard as Tom Brady, focus 100% on the game of football, so just maybe you can be a true Champion, as the G.O.A.T of the NFL…….. Tom Brady already is, forget about the outside crap ( only to be done on your time…not company time), So not just you and your team play a great game of football, but we the fans, can watch a very well played, with very different strategies to winning a well played game, by well trained and talented athlete’s, each and every week of the season.

 

” Any professional sport is not about any kind of outside protest, as it is about showcasing the God given talent you have been given”

” You are an employee of the owner of the team you play for, there is a code of conduct for each corporate company you work for”

” Any success or failure we may have will be in our past, we can learn from the past, but never shall we dwell in the past as it only brings more pain to us all”

” We all have a God given talent and it is up to each of us to find that talent”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Beauty of the Trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

All trails are unique to each other, each trail tells a story if you look deeply into them and when you truly listen to them, then you shall see the true beauty of the trail. Some may hike a trail to the summit of the mountain, just to reach the summit, take a ” Selfie” on the summit, then post to their social media platforms, showing others of their hike. This is fine, but………. But your missing the big picture and not truly listening to what the trail is saying to you.

The mountain trails have a lot to say if you really listen to them as you trek along the trails of the mountains. From the mountain streams you cross, to all the different plant life and the animals all around you, some of what you may never see  along the normal 9 to 5 of the usual path through the journey of life. We become so fast paced within our regular daily events, that we never take the time to actually look deeply into what we see, just as a long the trail of the mountains, when we just hike too post to our social media platforms, we totally miss out on all the true beauty that is around us along the trail.

Some may not have the desire to hike a mountain, or may look at it as too much work to climb to the summit? That is fine there are plenty of Nature trails that are easier and still offer you the chance to get outdoors, to truly enjoy ” The beauty of the trail”. Some of the mountain trails can and will show you of just how out of shape you are, these trails will totally test your physical ability, as well as your mental structure, but the reward of the beautiful view at the summit, will have you in awe of the trail you just hiked, plus when you truly looked deeply at all that was around you as you hiked the trail, now you can totally feel the peace and serenity that is within you, with a huge feeling of accomplishment.

The beauty of the trail will captivate you, when you truly listen to what the trail is saying to you, it will have you think less of the work of reaching the summit and think more of taking in the true beauty all around you. The problem within this Society, especially within the big cities, is that we never take the time to enjoy anything around us, let alone………….taking in the true beauty of all that is around us. We get so caught up in all the hatred and ugliness of today, that we then forget of who we truly are, we forget there is more to this journey of life than what we see everyday, it is also true that we get so consumed within the everyday life, that we then become someone we are not, whether of our own doing, or of the doing from someone around us? Which then we either become a Victim or help create other Victims of today and through all this we objectify others around us, instead of looking deeply into them, to see that………..yes we are are equal to each other, just unique in our own way. The true empathy and love is within us all deep within our souls, just that we bury it so deep within, that we can not truly feel it as we should, so we than can spread it among each other, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

The beauty of the trail can and will have us look deeper into what is around us, not just too see the beauty on the trail, but to see all the beauty around us, whether we are on the trail, or walking our paths of this journey. The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you into, being true to who you are, while you look deeply into all that is around you, while it brings you closer to reality, instead of further away from reality, as walking the streets of society will do. We all walk a path through this journey of life, let’s do it correctly so we than can experience true peace and happiness always.

 

” The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you back to being of truly who you are”

” Just as we are unique to each other, so are the mountain trails, full of true beauty always”

” The mountain trail are alive and will talk to you if you look deeply into all that is around them”

” Life within the society can change you into being someone you truly are not, as life on the trail will bring you back to being who you truly are”

 

 

 

 

 

Times change… People change… in more ways than one

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Every mountain has it’s trails, just as all the paths we walk within this this journey are the trails of life. No matter of the trail or how many times you walk the trail, there will be many changes that come to the trail, some changes can be very drastic and very noticeable, while other changes are minuscule or so small, that you may never notice, unless you look deeply into what you see. All trails never stay the same,  there is always something different no matter how many times you walk the trail,

Just as the trail changes, so do we the people as well. We all have our issues and no one that walks through this journey has no issues, the issues are the same as the the changes of the trail, they can range from very drastic, to very minuscule as well, sometimes the issues are brought on by our own actions, other times they are brought on by those around us. These issues are what changes us over time, the changes can be for the better as we move forward, or the changes can be very negative, that in many ways has us moving backwards and becoming lost within the clouds of our judgments, the changes we go through can and will take us from being of truly who we are, to being someone of who we are not, which will have even ourselves, not recognizing the person for which we are.

Life is full of change all around us, there is nothing that does not go through change. It is how we deal with the change, that determines not just of who we truly are and become, but how we treat each other as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we are not of who we truly are, which is the love and empathy that is already within our souls, this is when we tend to pull back  from those around us and pull in others of the same, then form a pack that attacks those that are not part of their pack, this also brings ugliness and hatred into the mix, which then complicates things further, instead of making things better moving forward. This is not truly of who we are, as through love and empathy, we actually feel deeply and care deeply, for those around us and will never harm another at any time throughout this journey.

We all have our quirks that pretty much we become accustomed to so much that, we really do not realize when they become an issue, one of the biggest quirks is, the way we speak our words to each other and through this world of political correction, has us all turning against each other and dividing us as a society, then we never really try to fix and change this, but instead point the finger of blame on one another, not just to deflect from ourselves, but to make light of our issues, to focus on the issues of another. With that said……….. I get the fact of some of the older generation taking offense to the way President Trump met and chatted with the Russian leader Mr. Putin, but I am sure President Trump remembers greatly of the past, when all were scared when the alarms sounded,not knowing if the big one was going to be dropped, from the days of the dark cold war with Russia. That was then, this is now, times have changed as well as we the people also. It is very hard to let go of the past, especially when you don’t take the necessary steps, to fix what you need to, so you can move forward better and stronger. President Trump is old school and is set in his ways, but that should never take away the fact that, he is a very smart man that has the best interests for America deep within himself and wants so badly, to improve all our paths within this country so badly. that His actions to this point speak for themselves and we can clearly see that he is improving and living up to his campaign promises. The problem lies deep within ourselves, simply because our judgments have been lost in the clouds within us for so long, we clearly have become very quick to judge other’s and point the finger of blame away from ourselves, as we have totally forgotten how to except responsibility, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then continue moving forward along the trails of our path, through this journey of life.

 

” Change comes to each of us in many ways, it is how we deal with the change that determines of who we become within this journey of life”

” There are many trails within this journey to explore, as each of these trails go through many changes as well”

” We climb the trails of the mountains to explore and see new things, but we do just the opposite as we walk our paths of this journey”

” Before we become quick to judge other’s, let us first look deeply within ourselves and fix our own issues moving forward within this journey”

 

 

 

 

 

The Journey of the trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The journey of the trail, some trails are short and some long, some trails are an easy nature walk, as most will test your skill and endurance, none the less all trails offer you the same thing…………. The fact of getting outside and being one with nature.

Don’t be frightened of how the trail may look at first glance, as you will never experience true beauty, as you would on the trail of your choosing, while you look deeply into what is all around you. The journey of the trail will have you travel along many different terrains, with some being muddy and murky, others bumpy with many curves, then as you climb higher, now you walk among the clouds on top of the rocks, that make up the summit of the mountain.

All trails start with the getting out of your vehicle and putting on your gear, including a good pair of hiking boots. You want a good solid but comfy boot, as this will determine of just how good of a day you will have on the trail. You will also need plenty of water as you will need to stay hydrated on the trail, not staying hydrated will lead to a whole different issue, than just walking the terrain of the trail. Don’t forget the first aid kit and keep it stocked, as you never know for what will be needed, especially on rugged terrain. Then there is the much needed snacks for the trail, as with the calorie burn, you will need to replenish the body with the important vitamins. When you are on the trail, you simply never know what you may en-tale? So it is important to be as ready as you can be, for what ever that the trail may have in store along your journey.

Hiking along a trail can be the best and funnest of times, as it can also be the hardest and worst memory of your life, which makes it even more important to be ready for whatever you may come across, to minimize the worst and greatly improve the best of times, you never forget the camera as well, so you can keep good records and good memories, not to forget that, you can capture some really good pictures of many different kinds of animals and plant life, that you may normally never see, in your everyday world. of the 9 to 5 and go home to sleep for the next day.

While there may be many different hikes out there, some being day hikes and others over night hikes, the one that really grabs me is the Appalachian Trail, at just over 2100 miles, ranging from Georgia to Maine and all the states in between, this hike takes six months from start to finish, through all different terrain and all different kinds of weather that Mother Nature may throw at you, but none the less, when you complete this hike, it will not only give you a sense of accomplishment, it will give you a huge confidence boost, that will have you feel like that is nothing you can not do.

Within this broken society for which we all live, sometimes we get so caught up in things that drag us down, instead of pick us up, that we forget about doing things that make us feel great. We are afraid to do things that we think others will poke fun at us, so we then lose sight of just doing things that makes us happy, as we than can walk our paths of this journey through life in peace, so we than can feel good of ourselves, regardless of what others may think of us? Life is too short not to live as we want to live, but always remember that, when we do it correctly, then life itself will bring us great rewards as well, without being sad or depressed for living a life of regret, because we were too afraid to simply be ourselves, be the true person of who we truly are and not the fake person that we hide in plain sight within this broken society.

 

” The journey of the trail encompasses many things, but nothing better then making us all feel good of ourselves”

” When the terrain becomes rugged and steep, is when we are at our best along the trail to persevere and complete the trail”

” Never forget of truly who you are, as this will always help in us feeling good of ourselves, within this broken society”

” The trail may be long or it may be short, it is still a trail that we can walk, to help us all in being truly of who we are”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mountains are calling……….

To those who have never trekked upon any mountain, let alone mountains that stand tall before them. When climbing any mountain you first have to be prepared for any weather changes that mat occur, then there is the terrain whether rocky, muddy, degree of steepness, or fallen trees in your way, you need a good pair of hiking boots, as they will provide support, as well as give a good grip for all the different terrain you may encounter. Hiking up mountains like in this picture, isn’t just slapping on a pair of sneakers and running up a trail, you first have to study the trail on a map so you don’t get lost along the trail, what would happen if the markers of the trail are not there, as they may have been knocked down during a storm or for whatever reason? You need an idea of how to navigate on the trail and a compass in the pack is a good tool for all Hikers.

We may hike any mountain simply because it is there? But for some we hike that mountain, to look deeply into what we see. Mountains have a way about them, that changes us as we trek to their summits. We start along the trail with one mind set or attitude about us, but as the trail dictates to us, we then change our demeanor, change the way we think of the mountain, look deeply into what we see, so we than can see all the true beauty of the mountain. There are no two mountains alike, each mountain is unique just as we are unique to each other and each mountain has a tale to tell, we just have to look deeply into what we see and not just climb the mountain because it is there.

The tale of the mountain begins at the beginning of the trail, with the different plant life, the different animals you may encounter, as they call the mountain their home, then along the trail and as it to changes from under our feet with the degree of steepness or maybe the width, with a good drop right next too us. plus as we get closer to the summit, now everything still changes, especially how all the trees are getting smaller as we climb. The vegetation OH!!! so delicate, becomes very different and if you step off the trail and kill, the vegetation it now dies and takes hundreds of years to grow back. Now as you reach the final push to the summit, you find the rest of the trek all rock with the trees as big as a small plant, you are now above tree line, leaving you susceptible to all the weather that the mountain endures, not too mention, you are out in the wide open with no cover to seek.  The mountain has many tales as you trek up it’s trails, with your feet feeling the heartbeat of the mountain with each step. In some ways the journey to the summit of the mountain, is similar to the journey of life, you walk a trail within both, you endure many changes along the trails, when you don’t respect the trail like life, now you have some crap to get through, but when you walk the trail in life the right way, it will reward you greatly, just like the reaching the summit of the mountain, with the great views, that wait for you to enjoy the peace and happiness, of a trail well blazed.

 

” The mountain is calling, you simply just look deeply into what you see, to truly understand what the mountain is telling”

” Hiking up a mountain is more than just physical exercise, it is true exercise for the mind, body and soul as well”

” Mountains will have an effect on all who trek them, that’s why there are many changes along the trail of the mountain”

” There are many rewards that come to us along this journey of life, but the reward of reaching the summit of any mountain, will take your breathe away with it’s beauty”
