The Power for Life

” The spirit of truth……….dwells with you and will be in you”

John 14:17

 

Throughout this journey of life for which we all walk, there are many ways to empower us, there are many things that come to us, to help us become better and stronger with each step, but the one thing that is within us all, to help us walk this journey correctly, is the spirit of truth that God gave us and his son Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his journey here with us.

We take so for granted this thing called ” Truth” that is within us all, sometimes we can’t handle the truth, simply because certain things that have scarred us so, or we try to put ourselves above all other’s, so we twist the truth in a way that, it fits into our agenda, so we than can step on one another, without letting the feelings of guilt, keep us from moving forward along this journey of life. God didn’t create us to attack, make fun of, or step on each other just to get ahead of each other, he created each of us, to love one another, as we would love ourselves. Truth is that thing within us all, that we will never see, but yet we will always feel deep inside the warmth, of God’s love within our hearts, so we than can share that love with each other, as we all move forward better and stronger.

There is this thing within our Government of today and it is called the              ”  Washington Power game”, This power has nothing to do with any truth, as it is all about power and control over everything around them. This power game has no true feelings and it will hurt all that comes in contact with it. This power game comes from we as humans who walk this journey and we as humans, simply do not have to follow and play this game, that brings so much hurt and ugliness to this broken society of today. When we don’t get caught up within this game and truly be of who we really are, will only help us become stronger throughout this journey, not too mention truly feeling God’s love within our hearts and then sharing that love with each other.

This Washington power game is played by all, within the walls of Washington D. C. These Individuals and because they have lost that true feeling of love within their hearts and have lost all true reality deep within their souls, so because they are so lost, they than try to push all the crap and ugliness, on the rest of us, as they truly can not see the plain truth, that is right there in front of them. They have become so lost within their reality, they have lost everything that true reality is. They make up stories with their fake truths, then expect the rest of us, to buy into their fake stories? While they keep their agendas and their so called power game going forward, all the while we all within reach of their crap, hurt real pain, while we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

 

” The power for life, has nothing to do with taking the power and control over everything that may be around”

” The Washington Power game that our Law makers strive so for, does nothing but, disrupt all the lives for who walks this journey”

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Healing Word……..

” I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”

John 10:10

 

The bridge over troubled waters, just as we cross over the bridges along this journey of life, so we can get to the other side, so do our words whether spoken or written, but what we fully take for granted is, the fact that our words can have a lasting impact on us all, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

Now with that said, the true art of Journalism is a dying art form, within the Society we all walk throughout this journey. There are not many true Journalists left that truly write from the heart and let their fingers dance across the keyboard anymore, they do not let their creative juices dictate of the words that they create, instead they take words already there, just they twist them around, as to make them as their own. So true today is this even more truer than within the left Bias Media, as all they write is, the already spoken word, just that they twist around those words, only for the reason of, to achieve an agenda, to be published by the publication for which they work.

With all this talk of the article written by the New York Times, the Op’D Ed article that they call it, I have a theory on this and it has nothing to do with what they may say of, someone within the President’s circle has written this? My theory is, someone within the New York Times wrote this article, as it did come from their publication, which proves even further and beyond reasonable doubt that, all this publication wants to do is, create even more drama, so they can stick to their agenda, to print and sell copy, as they try to make it look like they, not only know what they are doing, but they are the best publication out there? I got a news flash for you!!! Your just as bad as the rest of them out there and have zero clue on what writing true words really is. The best way for each of us within this Society to deal with this crap is, not buy any of these publications, so they than can whither away, like their so called words are doing everyday.

To be a true creative writer and create real true words, isn’t just about writing any spoken words down, there is a big difference between the creativity of words and the spoken words that are twisted around to be made out to be different with different meanings. Creative writing takes brain power and with the twisted spoken words, you need no brain to spin them full of drama, to create ” fake news” so you can be published and receive a paycheck from your publication for which you work. The problem then lies within those of this Society, that really don’t know the difference and totally buy into all the twisted words, as well as buy these publications to read and forward all the crappy words for which they read.

” Drama sells and true creative words do not, but true creative words makes you feel deeply inside your true feelings within your soul”

 

Time to end all this ugliness, time to end all these made up so called words, used within the left Bias Media today, just so they can keep their agendas and make their so called publications. Time to Man up and stop hiding behind a source, just because you seriously do not want to admit to the rest, that you clearly are not a true Writer. A true creative Writer don’t hide and is very proud to admit to their true creative words.  Much like my words here on my site, these words are all mine and they start out as a thought, then my fingers dance across the keyboard, creating an enjoyable read, for all that read my words. Plus I love getting out within Nature and snapping many pictures of landscapes, then letting my creative mind work, as it creates words to go with the pictures, letting my reader’s get engulfed within my words. This is how a true creative Writer writes and Stephen King is the master of creating words and then captivating his readers, to where they have a hard time putting down his books, til every word is read within the book they are reading.

We all walk a path within this journey of life, it is really not that much about the journey, as it is of how we walk the journey, without hiding or not truly being of who we are, by creating and twisting around the spoken word, instead of letting the mind do as the mind does, which is to create real words that captivate and give us all a warm feeling deep within our souls, which brings out the love of God within us all, so we can share goodness, with no ugliness within any of our sights.

 

” True creativity is within us all and has nothing to do with any ugliness for us to hide behind”

” It is really not so much of the journey, as it is really about how we walk the journey sharing and helping each other grow stronger throughout the journey”

” We all cross many bridges throughout this journey so we can reach the other side, not just to see whats on the other side, but to keep the mind fresh to keep creating reality without hiding behind anything fake”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A True American Hero

May you finally be at peace Senator John McCain, Thank you very much for your brave service in the United States Navy, as your journey through the Navy had it’s bright spots, as well as it’s dark and gloomy days. You Sir are a true Hero, as most would of cracked under all the pain and hurt you have gone through. You are exactly the type of person, for whom built this country, into the great country it has become and without men like you, only God knows of what might of become with the land of the United States of America. John McCain went from a Hero of the Vietnam war, to becoming  U. S. Senator, which he gave a huge part of himself, for the good of his fellow man, now some may not agree with his policies, or him as a person, but you simply can not deny, that he was most definitely, a true American Hero, for which we all can look up to, so we to can strive to walk our paths of this journey through life, as close to being the man that John McCain truly was.

Just as this Eagle looks down on us all, to protect and serve being the strong bird it is, now John McCain is looking down upon us all, to protect and serve us as best he can, while he appears before God, to receive his wings, which will help him get around to protect us all, for the same thing he did, while he was flying around for the Navy, doing what he loved to do.

John McCain came from a strong family with a strong family foundation, as his Dad and Granddad were both Admirals in the United States Navy, making him a third generation Navy man. After his days in the Navy ended, he then embarked on a path of Public service, which he had more than stepped up to the plate in many ways, throughout his career. John definitely lived a complete and genuine life, as a life that most only dream of. So no matter of what you think of John McCain the man, or the Politician, there is no denying that, he was a true American Hero of our time, who gave his all, for the good of us all, so we to can walk our paths of this journey through life, following the foot steps of such a great man.

This journey through life is not measured by how many years you have within it, This journey is totally measured by the life you live within the years you are so graciously given by God. When you walk your paths correctly, the journey will reward you with greatness and the one thing we so take for granted and that is, the respect we earn from all those around us, very much like the respect John McCain has earned throughout his journey. With this respect of all of us, truly has us feeling the love of God, that is deep within our souls, so we than can share this love with our true empathy, with each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we walk through this journey correctly, the journey seems so simple, but when we bring all the other crap like, hatred, ugliness and corruption to this journey, is when the journey becomes very difficult for us all. So let’s take the John McCain approach as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in peace and happiness, while we strive for greatness and the respect of all those around us.

 

” A true Hero does not look in the mirror and see a Hero, he becomes one with his actions for all those around him”

” Respect is a two way street and will never become a street of one way”

” God has so graciously given us this journey to walk our paths, it is how we repay him with our actions, that brings us much respect”

 

 

 

 

America the Beautiful

” In giving we receive, Love one another as I have loved you”

John 15:12

 

”            * O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

* To be understood as to understand,

* To be loved as to love,

* For it is in giving that we receive,

* It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

* It is in dying that we are born to eternal life

Saint Francis of Assisi

 

 

America is so beautiful, but if spend all your time within the cities of America and not venture out to where the hands of Mankind are not, you really haven’t truly been living, as you walk your path of this journey through life. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some beauty within the cities, but the beauty in places where Mankind has never touched and where Mother Nature has roamed free, to purify God’s beautiful creation, now your truly seeing what true beauty is and that true beauty, is also deep within our hearts and souls, just that within this troubled society, we don’t let it out for others to see, as we only hide it deeper within, to keep it from all the ugliness around us today.

Now with that said, we of this society are so consumed with all the hatred and ugliness all round us, that we just can not see any true beauty for wherever we look. Most of why we are so consumed I place the blame squarely on the left bias media of today, their only agenda that matters is, to bring us as much hatred and drama as they can, so hopefully we don’t see anything else around us? We the People of this society are just as much to blame, as we let this happen and take no action against their so called news, or for better words, ” Fake news Media”. These media types call themselves Journalists, but yet they have no clue on how to write from the heart and let real words flow from their brains, to their fingers and onto the keyboard, as they type their so called stories. They would rather go to a Press Conference, ask their dumb and stupid questions, then take the words of response and twist them around, so it will fit into their drama ridden agendas. The left bias Media is a big problem within this society and we the People, need to wake up and totally see through all their crap and end their drama ridden free reign of the spoken word.

The other problem we have within this society is the fact that, these so called Politicians that get voted into office by we the people, will say all that we want to hear so they can get our votes and become elected, then after they are in, they turn their backs on those that elected them, just so they can back stab and manipulate the system for themselves, as they totally lose sight of all true reality around them. Right now the entire Democratic party is so far in Denial, that none of them have a clue of what true reality is, these people hate so much of our President, that they can not even recognize him as being the President of the United States and that is sad, when you have a President elected by the people and our other leaders can’t even call him a President? President Trump has been our President for just under two years, but yet he has done a whole lot more for the American people, than that other guy (Barrack Obama) has done in his eight years combined. I will give Barrack Obama credit for one thing only………. and that is, he was a better communicator and could speak well, without being rough around the edges with his words. Even with the ” Witch Hunt” investigation going on, President Trump continues to work hard and achieve a lot of good for our economy, but yet nothing has really come out of this investigation? Well I am calling out those of this investigation and seriously think about investigating further, not only the Clinton foundation, but the Clinton’s in general, in the way they have corrupted everything in their wake. It is time the investigation spends our tax dollars more wisely and actually do their jobs, instead of simply wasting all the hard earned money of the tax payer, on something that is nothing but a ” Witch Hunt”.

The other biggest thing that needs to be totally addressed is, the topic of   “Illegal” Immigration. If you are knowingly doing something Illegal and those around you keep slapping you on the hand, but yet you keep knowingly doing it, there is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, without sweeping it further under the rug. Mexico has a border wall on the other side of their country to keep out the riff raff, so why can’t we Americans have a border wall, so we can further protect the interests of all Americans? Don’t get me wrong, I do know that America was built on Immigration, but immigration done the correct way, without the word ” illegal” before the word of immigration. With the most recent news stories of fellow Americans being murdered at the hands of ” Illegal”Immigrants being so sad, so just how much of this has to happen, before our so called Leaders wake up from their dream world and simply get back in touch with true reality. I totally get the fact that others of other countries have their issues and want to find a better life for their families, but we here in America have our issues as well and the biggest one is, to totally revamp our Immigration policies and put and end to the word ” Illegal ” in front of the word Immigration, so we all can walk our paths, not just as safe as we can, but within true peace and happiness always.

This coming November is going to be one of the biggest and most important elections of my lifetime and if we screw this one up, America just may go in a direction, that we all will not like. True there may be some Democrats out there that are fair, balanced and totally in touch with reality, but I haven’t seen one yet? So with that said and being an Independent, I just may never vote Democrat until they come out of the denial of which they are in? Plus I am in total favor of term limits for all within the walls of Washington D. C. time to not just drain the swamp of corruption, but putting and end to those within our Government becoming to comfortable and set in their ways, so they can further their agendas, while they totally forget about those of who put them into their office they are in? We all here in America work hard and pay our taxes in this country, it is time we get rewarded for our hard work and not being taken advantage of or forgotten, like those so called leaders are doing now. We have a president in place right now that can do the job and so far he has proved he can do it, so this November, let’s reward him with the right candidates, so he can further his work of, ” Making America Great”. The time is now to fix what we need to fix, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” Drain the swamp is not the walking through the muck to clean the swamp land, it is about fixing the swamp of corruption within the walls of Washington D. C.”

” The true beauty of America is all around us, time we see through all the crap and totally see all the true beauty that is around us”

” When the word Illegal comes before anything, you are doing something wrong and need to fix what you are doing”

” Washington D. C. is flooded within the swamp of corruption, time to clean up the swamp for the good of all”

” When there is an investigation that has no base and goes no where, time to end the investigation and move on to something else”

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Times change… People change… in more ways than one

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”
