As I sit here within the beauty of Mother Nature, deep within the wilderness of northern Maine, I hear nothing but the tree’s whispering in the wind, the Loons singing their daily tunes, the water of the lake splashing the shoreline, then an occaissional Moose coming down from the mountains taking his daily plunge in the lake. There is nothing better but to escape into the land of God’s country, A country that will heal your mind, body and soul, especially, with all the crap within this Society of today.
We all walk this journey through life, there is so much of this journey we take so for granted, we get so caught up within our daily routines, we never step outside within Mother Nature, to experience her true beauty. Yes Mother Nature can be very furious and unleash that anger at times, but that is part of life, that is also how we are as people, we to can unleash alot of anger, but the problem then lies with each of us, as we then never look deeper so we can show our beauty, show our love within us, cause when we do, we to can be as beautiful as Mother Nature.
God created this planet, this world for which we walk this journey, how do we show our appreciation, we attack one another, we bring much ugliness and hatred to each other, when we bring this, we also bring much pain and hurt to one another as well, this was not God’s vision when he worked hard to create this beauty for us all, he wanted us to enjoy it, to heal ourselves of our troubles when needed, so we didn’t bring the ugliness and hatred we see now, to each other.
The journey through life really is not that hard, it’s we the people with our actions that make this journey seem hard, hatred is a learned behavior, love is within us all, if we only unlearn the hatred and showmore love and empathy to each other, then all the ugliness will go away, then step outside within the beauty of Mother Nature, to heal properly from our troubles, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, always and forever.
” God’s country is so pristine and full of true beauty at every turn”
” We the people are the problem along this journey with our actions, we the people are also the solution as well”
” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest ‘
Within this fast paced society of today, that is driven by greed and self righteousness, we do become very weary daily, how do you rest or re-charge your body? For some maybe load up on coffee for plenty of caffeine, maybe a mid day power nap? Or maybe even a weekend away? But these things are simply a temporary fix that passes quickly and the weariness returns, as the faith in Jesus Christ is what gives us the true rest deep within our souls, we just need to come to him, so we than can get the true rest our body needs.
With our daily routines comes frustration and chaos within the world around us as well, When we don’t get what we want, we become frustrated, when our jobs push us to our brink, we then become very weary which brings a whole host of chaos to our lives, when we become so tired from the stress, the chaos and the work from the push, we then will enter into burnout and if we do not handle the burnout correctly, we then will become bitter, have a wide variety of health problems, which then brings us much pain and hurt. Within the fast paced society we forget to truly heal ourselves in mind, body and soul, because we get so caught up in the chaos and our minds get lost within the clouds of our judgments, that we forget to take the time for ourselves, to regain the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ. When we heal properly and when we get the proper rest we need, then not only can we walk freely of our paths on this journey of life, but we can also walk together with each other, without bringing hatred, chaos or ugliness to all that is around us.
We all will walk our own paths but the journey is the same, throughout this journey there will be many events that will tesgt us, there will be many who may cross our paths that will bring us much pain and hurt, as well as many that will come to us to help us when we need help the most, the problem then becomes we ourselves and when we do not be truthful to ourselves, how then can we be truthful with each other? The bigger picture of this is, not being truthful with ourselves, we then can never be truthful with Jesus Christ, which then becomes the number one reason why, we stop going within the house of God, to not just pray, but to hide deep within ourselves and not acknowledge of who we truly are. When we all come together in unity while being truthful of ourselves, with the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the love within our hearts will shine at it’s brightest, as all the hatred and ugliness disappears from all around us.
Rest is key for us all and not just resting from the work we put in from our jobs, but the rest that will help us heal from all our troubles, the rest that gives us spiritual healing deep within our soul. Getting out deep within Mother Nature and within her peace and serenity, will help us get the true rest we need, so we can heal within our mind, body and soul, from all that troubles us, so we than can move forward better and stronger. Some may want to vacation in an exotic place, with many others around and become stressed as they try to fit in everything in a short period of time, but thats not true rest, as it does nothing but add to the already tension within us. Step outside, step out deep within the woods of nature, listen to the peace and the sounds of nature, the birds singing their songs, the wind passing through the leaves of the tree, the water slapping against the shoreline, even a woodpecker pecking away at the tree. When you get out within Mother Nature and totally relax, you can feel the stress melt away from your body, kind of like a heavy weight being lifted off of your shoulders, spend a week out there and now you will recieve the proper healing within your mind, body and soul, plus you will also will trust yourself and while this takes place, learn to trust in Jesus Christ once again, as he led you to this special place, so you can truly heal as he wants you to. This is the biggest problem in this fast paced society, we don’t trust as we once did for whatever reason? We then hide deep within ourselves as we think we are protecting ourselves from any or further harm, but as the clouds then over come our judgments, we lose sight of who we truly are as we keep the foot on the gas and speed up further the pace throughout this journey, what do not realize is that while we bury deeper of who we truly are, our trust of each other gets buried as well. So as we move forward throughout this journey, we then hurt deeply each other and never show any love or empathy of each other. All this is on us the people of this society and all this can change if only we the people change our ways moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” Rest for the weary isn’t just falling asleep, it’s the healing of the mind, body and soul”
” The power of mother nature can change everything within it, just simply trust in her and the healing will begin”
“Help me, Lord, not to allow the clouds of the day prevent me from seeking your face. May I, like Moses, be bold enough to approach the thick darkness if that is where your presence is found”
” They looked… and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud”
We all walk a path through this journey of life, each of us as we walk our paths will experience the darkness of the clouds from time to time and some may struggle, while others simply flow through the clouds. The clouds at times are really thick and dark, as the light may seem like it is not passing through them? But as we tend to fear the darkness, we over look the fact that Jesus is the light and he is seeing us through the thick dark clouds to watch over us as we try to keep moving forward in the darkness. Jesus will send us signs through the darkness, but it is up to us to see these signs, no matter how dark or how thick the clouds may seem.
Sometimes throughout this journey we all get discouraged, we all will have these life events that may derail us, we all will stumble, trip and fall along our paths and this will bring us much pain and hurt, the pain and hurt will leave scars, yes, but those scars do not have to dictate, how we then move forward throughout the rest of our journey’s. The scars are there to remind us what was? So we than can move forward with confidence to be better and stronger, but unfortunatly, we don’t let the scars heal properly and we then continue to struggle, as we then become someone for who we truly are not.
Even Jesus experienced the darkness within the clouds, as Satan himself came to him and tempted him to come to the side of the darkness, we to get tempted in many ways, but unlike Jesus with his confidence and the light of his father, we get caught up within the thick dark clouds, we let the fear of the dark overwhelm us, and we then let the power of temptation suck us into it’s grip, as the claws dig in never letting us go. The darkness may be scary, yes, but if we truly keep the faith in ourselves and the faith in Jesus Christ our saviour, then there will always be hope each and every day as we walk our paths through this journey of life. It is the faith and the hope that guide us through the darkness, regardless of how thick or how dark the clouds may be, it is the faith and the hope that keep us from getting to deep within the fear of the darkness. Jesus had that faith in his father and himself, which then gave him the hope to keep moving forward, as he then shared his love with us all, showing us of how to walk our paths and leading us to the path of righteousness, that is full of the light of God, above all the clouds and away from the darkness and the fear. Know matter how thick the clouds, no matter how dark the clouds may look with no light streaming through them, the fear will then come to us in order to control us into becoming someone who we truly are not, thats where the confidence in ourselves comes in and helps us keep the faith, so the hope everyday will always help heal the scars, that will keep us better and stronger, throughout this journey of life, as we walk our paths with as little pain and hurt as we can.
” Temptation is the root to all the evil as it will have us become someone for who we are not”
” Pain and hurt will bring us discouragment, but faith and hope will lead us to the light and peace”
” He said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied”.
It has been said that…… ” when life gives you lemons make lemonade”, well too many lemons and you will pucker in distaste, too much sugar and now you get a sweet tooth, but when all is mixed correctly, now you can drink and enjoy. This journey through life is kind of like the lemonade, true life will throw you many curve balls, life will have it’s ugliness and bumps that will leave scars and bruises, but when you walk it correctly the journey will have many paths for you to be within peace and happiness always.
Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey here with us, he taught us many things as he shared the love in his heart with each of us, He sacrificed himself, was beaten and died on the cross for each of us, as his love for every one of us never died, his love lives within all our hearts always and forever. Jesus Christ our Savior walked this journey and lead us from temptation, to the light of the path of righteousness, he showed us that when we walk this journey correctly, we to can have eternal life as he did, even after he died at the cross for each and every one of us. Tjhe love of Jesus Christ will never die, it will always be there for us, we just have to keep complete faith in him as well as ourselves, so we can have the hope moving forward along this journey of life.
We of this society also walk a path through this journey of life, but unfortunatly somewhere along the journey we lost our way into the house of God, we become afraid to walk through the doors of the house and because of that and over time, our hearts have become cold and the warmth of Jesus’s love has been buried deep within our souls. Yes the love is still there and will never leave us, we just have to acknowledge it and it will come back to us and welcome us with open arms. This society and because we have strayed away from Jesus , has brought us deeply into the darkness of Satan, with much ugliness and hatred all around, has shown us that, when we give into temptation, we can become overwhelmed and suffer pain so deep, that the hurt will bury the love deeper, just so we can try to move forward along our paths, but as we walk our paths the pain is always there unless we address it correctly, so it can leave us healthy and strong, as our hearts then get refilled with the warmth of Jesus Christ.
We the people with our actions are all a fault for not visiting the house of God and until we accept our own accountability for that, the hatred and the ugliness will never leave us and we may truly never feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts, as our paths of this journey becomes more bumpy with more chances of bruising us even deeper, will keep us from the peace and happiness and as the light within the path of righteousness stays dark, keeping us deep with the darkness of Satan, and within his power and control that leads us into nothing but destruction. At the last supper of Jesus Christ with his disciples, he broke the bread saying, ” this is my body to be given up to you”, then passed the wine saying, ” this is my blood”, when you visit the house of God and accept the bread and wine within you, this is the love of Jesus that fills your heart and soul, so you then can spread this love with each other, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life in peace and happiness always, with the love of Jesus within us we then can move forward out of the darkness and into the light of the path of righteousness as we saw it, when Jesus had showed it to us, then with the true faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, we then can have the hope to move forward in strength and peace always.
” The road may be dirt and the mountain before us may look tall, but with the love of Jesus within us nothing will keep us from being of truly who we are”
” Sometimes we have to get through the darkness in order to truly see the light”
When you step outside and venture out of your comfort zone, you will be surprised at what you may find? The trouble with we the people today is, we get so set in our ways we then become too afraid to step out of our comfort zone and stay within what we know, which we then forget that there is another world out there. Take our so-called Political Leaders of today, these Individuals have become so comfortable within the walls of Washington DC, that they have totally forgotten about anything else outside of those walls, they become so closed-minded that it is all about them and screw whoever else is around them, they also become controlled by the power of denial and lose sight of all reality around them, I mean come on……….. Nobody can be as stupid as some of our Political Leaders can they?
Then there are the far-left liberal media, these so-called Journalists have forgotten of just how to be true Journalist, instead they have replaced being a Journalist, with the idea of writing for an agenda, just unfortunate that their agenda is hatred and fear-mongering, plus let’s not forget about drama and they love this word drama, as you can see from this world around us today. Gone are the days of writing from the heart, because when you write from the heart, you actually care of the ones who will read your words, as these so-called writers within the far-left liberal media have no heart and it shows as all they care about is you and I pay for their words, so they can live their plush exotic lifestyles on our dimes. Now just because you say your a Journalist and you have a degree in Journalism, doesn’t really make you a journalist, when you are given a template and are told to stay within the lines of the template. A true journalist uses his own imagination to create words, without using the spoken word and twisting it around to fit the agenda, it doesn’t take a degree to write for an agenda while using a template instead of one’s own imagination.
The vibrant Daisy’s in the foreground surrounded by many varieties of green and very alive plants within the plant world, all surrounding the cool and wet water that is very inviting on a hot summer day, with that feeling of the unknown that you just never know what may be lurking at every turn, or what if something should come up out of the water and grab you by the ankle? Maybe there is a Bigfoot and he comes out from the tree’s in front of you and says ” hello my name is Dave”, There are many ways to create words from your imagination and write in a way that captures your reading audience, instead of feeding them crap from an agenda, which never fills their stomaches but only fills their minds with more unwanted drama. Writing is an art form that feeds off of your creativity and your creation of words, that will fill the stomachs of your audience and keep them coming back for more, as they get fat from your imagination and the way you create your words. Stephen King is a good example of this, as he has a very vivid imagination that inspires his creativity.
” The secret den is that quiet place we need to unwind and heal the soul moving forward”
” There is a big difference between writing for an agenda and writing for your own imagination with your own words”
” Dead are the writer’s who write from the heart, leaving those who write from a template for and agenda”
” Divide and conquer, words that have been around many societies, words that can end the existence of us all”
Just as this dam filters and controls what passes through it, there are some among us within this society that will do whatever they can, to filter what we need to know, so they can have all the power over the rest of us within this society. It’s all about power and control, the reason for all this corruption, ugliness, and hatred all around us, the fact that the candidate on the left in 2016 didn’t get the election results they wanted and the one who did win the election can’t be bought, nor can he be controlled by the establishment or the ” powers” to be, this is the complete recipe for all that we see today and the far-left liberal media, the ones who have forgotten just how to be a true Journalist because they have become engulfed in this agenda and the agenda is to bring us more unwanted drama and fear-mongering to control us and mold us into a cast member of their fake reality play.
Then there are the corrupt Politicians who may have had good intentions at first when they were voted into office a few decades ago, but now as they have all become millionaires at our cost and with their hand out for more money at whoever will pay for their vote? They have become so corrupt that they have slipped within the power of denial and have totally lost sight of true reality. Power……. the word of the day and to some, they will do anything they can to achieve all the power over us all.
We all walk a path through this journey of life, but within this corrupt and ugly society, not only have we all become divided from each other, but we also have become secluded in our own little worlds, thinking that we are all better than each other, Oh!!! What a tangled web we weaved and have become caught within our own web. We the people with our actions and how we treat each other have not only turned our backs on each other but have turned our backs on helping this society to be better and stronger than that of the last society before us.
” The world doesn’t revolve around me, it revolves around us so we all can unify as one”
Actions speak much louder in silence and silence brings peace, but within this screwed up society, we have neither, we try to move forward on our paths, but our judgments have become clouded and our sense of direction has no sense to guide us, with all this corruption, hatred and ugliness around us, we hide within ourselves to keep ourselves safe from all harm, because through harm comes pain and no one wants to feel any pain, so we then bury deep within our true selves, as we move forward within our fake realities. We all walk a path through this journey of life when we walk it correctly without trying to be someone we truly are not, this journey and Jesus Christ will reward us in many ways, especially to have eternal life within Heaven where there is nothing but love everywhere.
” The big divide sounds like a movie, but unfortunately it’s the movie within our society right now”
” I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever, and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the World”.
In this picture, some may see the roots of an old tree trunk, but get in closer, really closer, look deeply, now what do you see? That’s right, the crown of thorns that Jesus wore before he died for each one of us through this journey of life. We all have eyes to see everything around us, but even as we all look and see the same things, it’s the perception of what we see that makes what we are looking at so very different from each other. perceive is the word of the day and with all the ugliness within this society, truly shows that we all, with our perceptions, have become isolated from each other, nobody is one the same page of this journey, we all think we are better than one another, which leads us all on a path of destruction, but no one wants to admit to their faults, let alone that what they perceive just maybe a warped way of looking at whatever you may be looking at. There is no wrong way to perceive something, the wrong part comes from the way you may look at something or the way you have been shown or taught to look at whatever you may be looking at.
Jesus Christ the only son of our Father in Heaven, came and walked this journey here with us, he taught us many things, he showed us that when we truly feel his love within our hearts and share that love with each other, there is nothing, not even the ugliness around us today, that will get in our way from the true happiness of this journey. Through our perceptions and through how each of us looks at everything, it will help us better understand all this ugliness, but to truly end the ugliness, we all need to unite together as Jesus would want us to and not turn our backs on one another.
We all are our own worst enemies as we walk this journey of life, we become disconnected from each other, through the world of social media we have lost the true feeling of real interaction, we all hide behind our technology devices, then try to move forward as if we are better then each other when things go wrong we will think nothing to point the finger, while we never accept responsibility of our own actions, accountability is the key, without it, we may always perceive everything in a warped way, which will keep us all distracted and divided as a society.
We of this society have wandered away from Jesus Christ and because of that our hearts have become cold, we have buried the warmth of the love of Jesus, so because of that, not just our perceptions have become tainted, it has turned us all away from one another, instead of uniting with each other, so we can fight like one, there is strength in numbers and when we unite together against this ugliness, then the ugliness has no chance, so in the name of Jesus Christ, may we all pull together, to end all the hate and ugliness, so we then can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness as Jesus showed us along his journey here with us.
” The body and blood of Jesus Christ is within us all, the time we truly feel his love together”
” Perception is how we perceive what we look at, so we can see farther into the future”
” When we glance back in the past and fix the error of our ways we then can walk our paths better and stronger”
Our memories throughout the journey we walk, plus learning the history of others before us that also walked this journey before us, this is how we grow to move forward better and stronger with each step throughout this journey of life. It is pretty cool knowing those who walked before us and what they did, to make their journey better for themselves. When we look into our history and look deeply into the other societies before us, we can learn of what works, versus what does not work, but when we try to erase History or even worse do not teach history within our schools, now you can very easily repeat history and take huge steps backward instead of moving forward.
These Native Tribes back in Ancient times in the area of Mount Kineo did not have any technology like we of today, they had no telephones but yet they communicated far better than we do today. These people didn’t procrastinate and whatever they found they turned it into something useful to make their lives better. They learned how to hunt so they can eat, they learned how to barter as there were no monies back then, they were survivors and learned how to survive and were not lazy at anything they did. Now unlike those of us within this society with all the technology and gadgets we have, we have become lazy and expect things to come to us, instead of actually getting out and working hard, so we then can move forward better and stronger. We in this society have become disconnected from each other even with all the connections we have, we hide behind all our devices and have no clue as to what true social interaction is? We think that FaceBook is our modern-day interaction, I have a news flash people, time to step out of our comfort zone before there is no more comfort to enjoy.
There are so much ugliness and chaos among us today, so much that it has become hard to see any light at the end of this darkness. Those who are creating this chaos and unrest, quite simply have lost sight of what is around them, plus none of them are looking through their actions before they actually take the action. I am willing to bet that most of these individuals who are creating this ugliness have zero clues of what they are doing? They are simply a follower and will never be a trailblazer as they walk the path they are on, through this journey of life.
The unfortunate part through all this ugliness and chaos is, we of this society are becoming Victims from it, not only are we becoming trapped in our homes from a virus, but we are also becoming trapped within our homes, for the fear of becoming a true Victim from the ones creating all the ugliness and chaos. Very true that the ones with boots on the ground delivering all this ugliness are merely a puppet for an even bigger puppeteer, so with that said…….. maybe it is time we find the puppeteer so we all can escape this ugliness and get back to the true beauty within this journey of life, find the one holding the puppet strings so we then can cut these strings, showing that they can not hurt us anymore and we are done being a Victim of their ugliness. In this society, it is all about three things, the power, the greed, and the control, these three things will have you lose all sight of reality, not to mention the fact that you become a victim of denial and with denial, you then become someone for who you truly are not. Very true there is a silent majority that says not all that much but is much smarter because they let there true actions speak even louder than even themselves, so when the time is right, the silent majority will let their true actions speak and all the ugliness and chaos will leave us, bringing back the true peace, the true love and the beauty that is around us, as we then move forward along our paths of this journey through life.
” Open the history books again cause what you may learn will help you move forward better”
” Memories become the history and when we do not glance back to fix the error of our ways, then the future becomes in jeopardy”
” Ugliness and chaos are ingredients of evil, as love and faith will bring us good full of peace”
We of this society have become so engulfed for so long, on all the Rhetoric and hate around us, we have then lost total sight of all the true beauty that is around us. We have stopped walking any and all the paths of this journey, simply because we let all the fear from all the Rhetoric control who we truly are, we let some of these so-called leader’s lead us in the wrong direction, instead of we the people taking the lead when we need be, showing them that if they can not do the job, then step aside get out of the way and let another step in and do the job that you refuse to do, so we all can prosper and get back to truly walking our paths through this journey of life.
Within this society, the biggest thing we have wrong is, Church and State are supposed to be separate? But these so-called leaders are so engulfed in the Power, Control and the Greed, they think they are our God also? A State helps us thrive to be better as we walk our paths, while a Church helps us with our faith, so we then can have hope along the path and throughout this journey, when the two become one, that is when all the issues and troubles come to us all.
Jesus Christ didn’t come to us to divide us, he came to share his love with us, to bring us together so we can move forward better and stronger. We can all make a difference on this journey, but when we do it as we are now, then what difference are we really making when we are all divided? Jesus didn’t teach us this, it is totally on we the people and we are screwing it all up Royally, the difference has been going on for a long time now, just that through all the denial, the power hungriness, the greed, and the hate, this journey has stopped for us all, for no one knows totally of how to start it back up properly for the good of us all. The ones who do not care for their fellow man, are the ones responsible for all this ugliness and are the ones that need to be stopped in their tracks, held accountable for their actions, so we all can walk our paths with confidence and dignity throughout this journey of life. God didn’t put us here to be against each other, he wants us to unite together while showing our love in our hearts, with each other, with each step along our paths, throughout this journey of life.
” Don’t let the Rhetoric and the ugliness control who we are, let Mother Nature transform you to be better and stronger”
” This ugliness is on we the people, Jesus didn’t teach us this when he walked this journey here with us”
” A picture may be worth a thousand dollars, but our actions can and will last throughout a lifetime along this journey of life”
” God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life”
Just as the creek flows down off the mountain, we to flow along our paths on this journey through life. The creek will encounter obstacles to overcome on its journey, so do we encounter obstacles as we walk our paths of this journey. The journeys may differ, but the concept is the same, unlike the creek we the people take so much for granted along our path, as one is the true beauty all around us, there is so much beauty, but as we become so engulfed in the ugliness and the hate, we then become someone for who we truly are not and bury deep within who we truly are, as well as our true feelings and emotions.
This journey through life for all of us will have the same beginning as well as the same ending, but what lies in between determines on the path you choose to walk, some paths will have many bumps and pitfalls that will knock you down, which then will be determined by the way you get up from the many falls, some paths may be well-groomed, which then doesn’t prepare you for the pitfalls, but we still have to work hard along our paths in order to make this journey well walked.
The birds singing their many beautiful songs, the vegetation so alive and vibrant, feeling the true heartbeat of this planet Earth, some of the most beautiful things around us. Each one of us sharing our love and empathy that is within us with each other, this is the most precious thing we have, but yet as we get so engulfed with all the ugliness, we lose this as our hearts go so cold. The beauty of Mother Nature is beyond beautiful, it has the power to heal us from our troubles when the daily grind has us in its clutches, escape within Mother Nature and feel the weight of the grind simply melt from your body. When you become engulfed in your routine, doing the same thing day in and day out, escape within Mother Nature and see new things, the type of things you will never see in your daily routine. We all need to escape the grind that is life from time to time, as this is what heals us and helps us become better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” The journey is supposed to flow like the creek down the side of the mountain”
” Mother Nature is more beautiful, its power can change us all moving forward throughout this journey of life”
” The journey up the mountain can seem like a lot of work, but it is work that soothes us from our daily struggles when we look deeply into all the beauty around us”
