Separation is okay, but division brings great pain

” He himself is our peace, who…has broken down the middle wall of separation”

Ephesians 2:14

Some time ago, a University Professor was quoted as saying, ” there are two things that will never be solved, the problems of race and war”. The biggest reason for this is, both racism and war have their origin in the pride and covetousness of the human heart. Until the heart then changes, we will forever fall back into the darkness of destructive sin. We all have sinned at some point in our lives and there is nobody that has not sinned throughout this journey of life. When Jesus came and walked his journey here with us, he taught us how to wipe clean the sins, so we can move forward in peace, then through the peace, our hearts can feel the warmth of not only the blood of Christ but feel the warmth of the love, pride and the covetousness, but being so far removed from the time of Jesus Christ, we the people have turned our hearts cold toward one another, which brings forward the racism of all people, with the threat of war hanging over our heads at every turn along our paths.

There is a time and place for everything we do on our paths, sometimes we need to step back, access the situation, so we can move forward even better than we were, but for the reason of power, control, and greed, we the people will never take the time to step back, cause we want nothing more than to get totally ahead of one another. We the people have this crazy notion that, for us to be better than each other, we first need to attack one another, now that was the war part, the racism part is, no matter who you are, no matter the color of your skin, no matter what religion you are, etc… You will always be different than me, so, therefore, you must be divided from me and separated from the path that I walk. We the people are our own worst enemies, and until we come to the truth on that until the heart within us changes from cold to warm, then all the chaos, ugliness, hatred, and corruption all around us, will never end, meaning we will never, in the eyes of Jesus Christ, be within the peace of this journey through life.

The tree in this picture was split from the power of lightning, yes this was a bit too close for comfort, but, this was a sign not just to me, but for all those within this area, that there is nothing that can be ended in the eyes of God, with the way we all are walking this journey, this journey as well can end quicker than we may think. God is not happy with the way we are not just walking our paths, but the way we treat each other along this journey. Everbody becomes so sad from all the destruction from the natural disasters like the tornados, the hurricanes, the fires, etc…as this is a sign from God that, the time is now for us all to change, let our hearts be filled with warmth, and get away from the coldness that comes from Satan. The loud Boom that the lightning made as it split this tree, yes it was very loud, but it is a Boom that I never want to hear again, as I saw first hand the power of lightning.

Our hearts have become so cold toward one another, we really do not know one another anymore, we attack each other as we have never attacked before, we think nothing but to belittle someone, just to make ourselves seem better and more powerful, then some want to come out and blame the guns for this? Really!!! It is not the gun that pulls its own trigger, it is we the people that actually pull the trigger, or better yet, take better control of the ” Mentally Deranged”, and the problem of all the shootings go away, and still, take care of all the Illegal guns that are either being sold on the black market or being made with the technology of a 3-D printer, now you shall see the shootings be reduced greatly. In order for a Gang member to be a part of the Gang, they have to do some inhumane things, which one thing are, the killing of another person in cold blood, this is what needs to change, as well as the hearts of us all, so we all can further walk in the peace of Jesus Christ, throughout this journey of life.

There are some Leaders of other countries out there, that will do anything they can to achieve all the power of everything within this world, The issue then lies on all of us, the people of this world, allowing them to achieve their goals, simply by attacking one another and being divided from one another. Racism brings great division, as war will come from the division, as we show weakness instead of strength. Jesus Christ showed zero Racism, as he was there for all, no matter who you were if you needed healing, Jesus didn’t look at your color of skin, or what religion you were then walk away, he brought you whatever you needed so you could heal from your pain, Jesus showed us how to love one another all the time throughout this journey, the hatred is on us the people and the way we treat each other at every turn. This world is so full of sorrow, that none of us want to take that first step to end it, so we then follow as not to disrupt, or be singled out. Do some think they have all the answers? We all think that we are better and smarter than each other, but no one will reach out to lend a helping hand to another. We all have our opinions as well, but you know what? We all have a backside of the anatomy as well, In order to come together in unity, we need first to change our hearts, let the blood of Jesus flow freely through it, so we then can warm it again, so the cold and all the ugliness go away. It is true that there is strength in unity, but until we get away from the weakness of division, we will never find that out. When we come together in unity, there are no leaders that will succeed in their goal of having all the power within the world, as they truly find out that, they can not control us anymore, with we the people taking back the control, while showing our love of ourselves with each other, will not only have us get away from the racism, it will break down the walls of the divide, which will bring back the peace and love of Jesus Christ, so we all can truly unite and walk this journey as Jesus showed us, while he walked it here with us.

The signs of God are all around us, we just need to acknowledge them, so we can see them, to change what we need to change, as we truly move forward along this journey of life. The lightning splitting this tree, truly shows that God has the power to take away, even as he created it. Everything happens for a reason, but unless we find out that reason, we will never know the why? All the issues we see all around us, are totally on all of us, the people of this society, which we the people through real change, can fix all the issues, as we all heal moving forward. Just as Mother Nature changes all the landscape around us, we to can change the environment around us, with the keyword being, “can”. We just have to want to do it, not just for ourselves, but do it for each other, and the way we do this is, to come together in unity and totally get away from the word of, ” Racism”. The more we keep throwing around this word, the more it becomes the issue, we need to bury this word once and for all, then we can move forward together in harmony, as we truly change what is around us and what is within us, so our hearts will truly feel the warmth of the blood of Jesus Christ. What we are doing now is not of who we truly are, when we look in the mirror and truly see who we are, then we can move forward, in the peace and love of Jesus Christ, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” This journey we walk we will be separated on our paths as they are different, but we unite through the journey, as the journey is the same for us all”

” Until the attacking of one another stops, then the division will always be there, with the threat of war hanging over our heads”

With faith, the storm will never last

” He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ” Quiet! Be still”. The wind ceased and there was a great calm, Then he asked them, ” Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith”?”.

Mk 4:39-40

When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey here with us, he was so calm always, but some never wondered of his calmness, with each turn along his path. Jesus was always calm with each step along his path simply because, he had total faith in his father, the creator of all Mankind, to provide him with the right tools needed to walk with confidence, so he could walk through any storm, to get to the calmness of the light on the other side. Faith is the keyword here, and faith is something we today have lost, through all the chaos around us today.

With all the chaos around us today, the clouds of our judgments have become really thick, so thick that we can not see clearly what is right in front of us. We overlook all the little things in life, then make like everything that we do see, is only for us ourselves, without giving a thought that, what may be in front of us, is also in front of all others around us. We have become so self-centered that, not only have we lost empathy for others, we have lost all faith in ourselves, as well as everything around us. Without any kind of faith, there is no confidence, and when we have no confidence, then whatever we may do will never be easy, as we think that we are totally alone, within this journey we walk.

Jesus Christ showed us many things as he walked this journey with us, the one thing that he showed us, that today we take so for granted is, to not only have faith in ourselves, but to have total faith in him, so we to can walk through this journey with the confidence he had, plus be as calm as he was while walking with the faith in his father. Without the confidence and the faith, you can see where that is taking us, we have become so consumed with the chaos, that we do not look at the little things anymore, and we look at everything around us as bigger than life, that will bring great pain and hurt, to which we then fear everything that will come before us along our paths of this journey.

When we walk our paths of this journey as Jesus showed us, we can truly see that we all walk the same journey, just different paths. We will also see that, when we have empathy for each other, we then will help each other, without even thinking about it. When we help one another, this is where the confidence in what we do comes to us, this is how we learn from the little things, so everything else does not surprise us and bring us pain and hurt. Yes, we will go through many storms in this journey, but with the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, the storms will pass, bringing us to the other side, within the light and away from the darkness of the storm.

Sometimes the dark clouds above us will seem so thick, and seem like they will never end? This is where our faith in ourselves and in Jesus needs to be at its strongest, Without faith, we will never get to the light, we will never have any confidence, which then leads us to great pain and bitterness along the paths we walk of this journey. We then let the doubt of all things around us, which then leads us into the power of denial, that then strips us of who we truly are. Yes, the grip of denial is very powerful, and it will control every fiber of your mind, body, and soul, but when we have the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the doubt and the denial of the storm above us, will never last, as the dark clouds above us, become thinner and the light starts to shine through them, that then leads us to the path of righteousness, that Jesus showed through this journey.

When the dark clouds are so thick above us, and we have lost all faith, we know become all wrapped up deep within ourselves, and never put forth our hands, to give anyone around us something to hold on to, as they try to pull us from the storm that surrounds us along our path. We are so deep within ourselves, that we see nothing or no one that may be around us. As we are deep within ourselves, yes we may cry, but because we are so deep, the tears fill up all the cracks around us, and we may seem like we are drowning? The wet tears may not have a place to go away from us, only because we hold them back, which then make it seem like the waters of the storm, are violently attacking us, which make it seem like there is no end to the storm? Only when we keep the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, do we find that the tears will flow away from us, which help us extend our hand, so the hand of another can and will, pull us from the storm and help us into the light, leaving the storm behind us, as we move forward along our path, through this journey of life.

There will be other smaller journeys within this bigger journey of life, these are the journeys that help us with our faith and our confidence, like for instance, climbing that mountain before us. Sometimes when the weather becomes bad, that has the mountain within the darkest of the clouds, it is the faith and the confidence that tells you to hike another day, but with no faith or confidence, you will proceed up the mountain, within the strongest part of the storm, that they can and will, lead you to much pain and hurt before you. Because of the lack of faith and confidence, you have then put yourself into more troubling times, which now your better judgment becomes clouded, with much doubt and denial. The mountains will always be there, so when they become socked in from the dark clouds of the storm, then hike another day, so you can be rewarded with great views of the better day, be rewarded with a clear day within the light, as the darkness of clouds, are nowhere near, making for a quiet path, through this journey of life. Each reward that comes to us will bring us not just the faith and confidence in ourselves, but the faith and confidence in Jesus Christ as well, so we all can walk through the darkness of the storm, to get to the light on the other side, which is the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us along his journey.

” With true faith and confidence, the darkness of the storm will never last, as the light will always light up the end of the storm as we move forward”

” Without any faith or confidence, the clouds become thicker and darker as they consume us dearly, into the power of doubt and denial”

Changed for Life

” We…are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory”

Corinthians 3:18

We all want that nice beach house on the ocean, but through change and erosion, you can see that this beach is one more storm away, from having waves crash into the beach house, as people sit and watch television in the living room. Erosion is a constant thing as we walk our paths through this journey, we may not see this erosion, simply because we are too busy out there living our lives. We all in this society have become so engulfed, with trying to be the one to bring the next big thing, that we all have lost focus on what is truly going on around us. We all want so much for that five minutes of fame, we don’t focus on who we truly are anymore, which leads us into the world of, ” I am better than you”.

We are all working so hard to buy all the material things and showing them off to all those around, that when we buy these things, we don’t really look too deep into things like erosion and the effects it will have in the future. These material things are just that and we can’t take them with us when this journey ends. So, begs the question? Then what really do these material things hold for us? I can see the short answer of having the beach house, so one can walk the beach whenever they wish, but when erosion comes into play and takes away that beach, now it becomes very hard to walk the beach, as now you need not be afraid of the ocean and become a very good swimmer, which most are not.

Erosion is a huge part of this journey, it will affect every aspect of the land around us, whether at the beach, or maybe a cabin in the woods, or even within all the houses being developed around us. A lot of these houses and as the developers don’t want us to know, as they will never sell a home? Are being built on either swampland or old landfills that have been filled in. They may think they are filling in a hole in the ground to develop some homes, but nobody thinks of the erosion that comes to us, from this planet that we walk our paths on. Climate change, global warming, are all terms that some makeup to make a profit, but these terms have always been around through the word ” Erosion”, as mother nature changes this planet, with the help of erosion.

Some may think they can change the beach with the help of some heavy equipment? What they never admit to is, you simply can not fight mother nature, nor the fury of the ocean during a raging storm. Erosion has been around since the beginning of time, then lies the problem of we the people, especially those within the walls of Washington DC, as all they want is to put more money in their pockets, leaving the ones struggling through the erosion, standing there holding the bag, as now their beautiful beach home is in jeopardy, from the power of erosion and being dismantled before their eyes.

You build a nice little cabin in the woods, with beautiful mountains all around you. As you build this cabin, all you are thinking about is, all the peace and serenity you will have away from this crazy society. Well, the one important thing that slips our mind as we build is, the exact location of the cabin, while we look up at the mountains, to determine what would erosion do, as it eats away from the mountain? Where will those boulders go as the erosion eats away at the mountain? Will this cabin slip away into the river below while the erosion eats all the tundra beneath it? These are all very good questions, but these are questions we overlook, simply because we want so bad of these things, we then look away from them, thinking…Oh!!! This will never happen to me? Yes, there may be that chance that it will never happen, but!!! We must always keep in mind the chances, so we can be better at the decisions we make, while the changes of erosion are happening all around us.

Everything that happens as we walk our paths of this journey, happens for a reason, but we never get into the reasons, because we fear more of the negative reasons, so we look away from them, then later when things start going south…we then ask ourselves why? When things around us happen, we then need to find out why did this happen, so we can truly understand better, as we then try to keep moving forward along our paths. Because we do not want to know the reasons why something happened, will have us regress and move backward, which then has us, lose faith in not just everything around us, but lose the truth of everything around us, which then leads us into the self-destruction of everything we do.

Erosion has and will always happen right before our eyes, we need to look at this as, how can I better understand this moving forward, instead of looking at it as a way to profit from it, which then has us robbing one another, of all our hard-earned work, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Everything erodes over time, even we ourselves erode over time, remember those things you once did when you were younger? Well here you are later in life and now you can not do what you once did. Erosion is a huge part of this journey through life, it is time we start looking at it, to truly understand it, so we all can be better as we walk our paths through this journey, to be true of who we are, and live our lives in the peace and happiness, that Jesus Christ showed us, while he walked this journey here with us.

” Erosion has been in this journey since the beginning of time, but we still do not truly want to know and understand anything about it”

” People, land, beaches, mountains, there is nothing that erosion will not affect, we must understand it, before the erosion takes everything away”

The Brevity of Life

” What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes”

James 4:14

The band named Kansas has a song out there that sums it up in the title of the song, ” Dust in the wind”. We are all just dust in the wind, that blows around as we walk our paths of this journey, we are a blade of grass that gets blown in the wind, and are just a part of the landscape around us. There is nothing here within this journey that is forever, just look at this tree, or what’s left of it after the power of lightning got a hold of it. Just like we need to do the cultivating along our paths, mother nature does the cultivating of all the landscape around us. You just do not know how long this journey will last for you, either you are here for a short time, or a bit longer, so you need to cultivate properly so this journey will bring you all the fruit, instead of the pits, of all that is around you.

We all need to face it sooner or later, face the facts that one day this journey will end for us, yes this is a sad day, but one even sadder to all those we hold dear, as now you are taken from them. Can you ever be ready for this day? Who knows, as once this journey ends, it is not like you can communicate this to those around you. All we can do while we are here is, prepare ourselves for this day, prepare our paths to the best ability we can, so those that walk behind us can keep moving forward in your honor. Some may ask, why do some need to die on this journey? Maybe simply look deep within mother nature, to see that much of nature also die off, so the future can be greener and more vibrant. With all the ugliness, hatred, and the attacking of one another, maybe this is the way of the Lord, sending us a message that we need to come together in unity or die apart from another in the division?

Grief is a part of life within this journey, when we do not grieve properly, now we open ourselves up, to a whole lot of issues as we walk our paths, It’s these issues then, that turn us into someone/something we are not. From the process of not grieving properly, this is what has us, not cultivating our paths as we should, so this journey can be full of peace and joy at every turn. The Brevity of life may be short, but life itself does not have to bring great pain either.

The grass is green and vibrant, but just don’t look at the grass, look through the grass and see all the vibrancy all around that blade of grass. Sometimes we never look around us to see what is there, we walk around with blinders on and see only what we want to see, as we totally miss what we need to see, so we can walk through our paths properly, along this journey of life. There are so many cancers throughout this journey, sometimes we let our focus become blurry of the rest of what is around us, the cancers of life, when you look deeper into the cancer, it goes a lot deeper than any disease, there are many cancers that will come to us, and many more that we never truly understand, only because we chose not to understand, only to walk around, instead of hitting it head-on.

Sometimes like within the world we live in today, we think that we are entitled to everything around us, we do not want to share anything with anybody, we take so much for granted, that we then lose sight of everything around us. We can’t have everything and we also can not take it with us, when this journey comes to a close either. So there is no real answer to any of what is going on around us today, just that we have not only lost sight of reality, even worse, we have lost sight of each other as well, which would explain all the division all around us. What is happening all around us, is not true of who we are, cause when we are who we are in the eyes of God, there is zero negativity, there is zero bitterness, this is all on us, and we need to fix our wrongs before it becomes too late, then the ride through this journey comes to an end, leaving us all with regret, for what we should have done, instead of what we failed to do. Life is full of Brevity, we need to understand totally from it, or forever be within the doubt and the regret that will keep us from walking our paths through this journey, in the peace, joy, and serenity, for which we all so deserve.

” Through Brevity comes longevity, it is time we truly understand before it becomes too late”

” We are the cultivators of our paths, like mother nature is the cultivator of all the landscape around us”

Be Free


“Draw near to God and he will draw near to you”

James 4:8

You ever get your hand stuck inside a vase, then call for help to get it out, the help says for you to outstretch your hand, as they try to pull the vase from your hand, but you say back to them, if I do that then I drop whatever it is within my hand? We of this society are very similar to this situation, we are so afraid to let go, so we can be free from whatever it is that is holding us back.

We of this society will let fear of anything control who we truly are, this fear will stop us from moving forward and keep us running in circles with no true direction. When the fear of anything comes to us, we then shut down, bury who we truly are deep within, as to try to keep all the pain and hurt away from us. All our true feelings and emotions get buried so deep within along with our true selves, that we then feel nothing and our hearts go cold. When our hearts are cold, we then stop acknowledging Jesus Christ, which then his blood doesn’t flow through and warm our hearts, and even worse, his love gets lost among all the ugliness that surrounds us.

Trust is the word of the day. Trust is what helps us keep all fear at bay, trust is when you truly have trust in yourself, to overcome anything that may come to you. When we have trust in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, there is no fear that will come to us and bring us great pain. I get the fact that there may be some life events that we can not control and come to wreak havoc on us, but when these events come, it is more important than ever, for us to have complete trust in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ. Simply because once the fear takes a hold of us, once the fear grabs us within the big cold hands, it is very hard to break free from that fear. it is not impossible to break free, but it then takes very hard work on us, as it then consumes us so much, that, yes we may get back to who we are, just not totally of who we could have been, as we have used up so much energy, that now we struggle to get away from any fear moving forward, plus now we even fear the fear.

We can be as free as we want to be, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We get so focused on just keeping up with the Jones sort of speak, that we totally forget about walking this path for ourselves. We let everything affect us, and struggle with letting go of anything, so we can move forward better and stronger. This journey is not about us walking it for another, this journey works best if we walk it for ourselves, then as others see this and do the same, now you have a healthy journey, where we all can walk our paths in peace and happiness. Plus when we acknowledge the blood of Christ within our hearts, he then warms our body and soul as well, while his love leaks out of us, and into all those around us.

When my journey finally comes to a close, I want to be an Eagle. A big powerful bird that flies through the skies with no worries, they are so strong they fly so effortlessly no matter how strong the winds are. Watching an Eagle take to the sky and flap those wings with such a force to get really high in the sky, then just simply glide all through the ” big blue yonder”, as they catch those wind currents just right. The Eagle is such a Majestic bird, a bird that its beauty shines from afar, a bird that sees his dinner from so high above and within the waters below, then swoops down and snatches it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle just does its thing along its journey and does not let the fear get in its way, or it wouldn’t be able to soar at such high heights, with the greatest of ease.

Letting go isn’t all about cleaning out the basement, or cleaning out the car. To really let go is about cleaning out yourself, taking stock in your life, seeing where you were, where you are, to get to where you want moving forward. It is kind of like being a hoarder, where you are so afraid to throw anything away, so your house becomes so cluttered with crap, you can’t even walk around the house correctly. The difference is, you have become a Hoarder of your life, where there is so much clutter within yourself, that now you can’t see clearly along your path of the journey. The journey then becomes so heavy that now, you don’t even want to walk anywhere anymore, not just that you don’t want to, you just have no clue of the direction, because of all the inner clutter. Let go, be free, fly the open skies like the bird in this picture, as you let go, so does the heaviness of trying to take off and be free, then you can see clearly along your path, to walk through this journey, to be free, within the peace and happiness, that Jesus Christ showed us, on his journey here with us. Let go and be free, so we all can be everything we want, throughout this journey of life, as peace and happiness surround us all.

” Fly away, be free, don’t let the clutter weigh you down and bring great pain in all you do”

” Focus on yourself more and get away from the focus of others, so you can truly be free to fly the heights you want throughout this journey”

Within the Kingdom of God, Jesus cultivates us all

” To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God? It is like a Mustard seed…once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants”

MK 4:30a, 31a, 32

The Kingdom of God is far and wide, It holds so much within it, that we would never see it all, even if we went out and explored every day throughout this journey of life. Then you have Mother Nature within this Kingdom, even when you get out and explore one area, as mother nature then changes it with even more beauty for us to see. The Kingdom of God is so vast, but yet, we take so for granted just how vast it truly is. God created all this around us, not so we can attack one another, not so we can take it all for granted, he did so, for us all to come together in unity, to walk through this journey, in the peace and joy, his son Jesus showed us when he came and walked his path here with us on this journey.

This bird flying freely within the Kingdom of God, without a care or a worry with each flap of the wings, simply taking in all the true beauty of what is God’s Country, this is what God had in mind for all of us, until we the people started getting away, for what this journey truly is all about. The trees within this picture started as a seed, then mother nature became the Farmer and sown these trees into a beautiful part of all the beauty we see around us. Look deeply into the horizon of this picture, take in mind that throughout all these mountains, there is plenty of wildlife that lives within them. That’s the problem in this society, if we can not see something, we then lose all belief in anything else out there, which explains why so many have walked away from the house of the Lord today. When you truly look deeply into that horizon, then you will totally see everything and not just a picture of a landscape.

A Farmer is one who cultivates the land, throughout the many societies the Farmer’s job has always stayed the same, to take care of the land, so they can bring the fruits of their labor to us all. Throughout time, the tools for the Farmer have changed, just like mother nature has changed the landscape throughout God’s country, to bring even more beauty to us all. There are many trades within this journey, with all the trades, there are also many tools for each trade. Now, these tools will be very different from one another, as they are specific to the job they were designed for. Very true all these tools have changed over time, only because they are designed to make our jobs easier, so we can enjoy the fruits of our labor, as we walk our paths to be better and stronger moving forward.

In many ways we the people of this society have failed each other throughout this journey, we have stopped short of coming together in unity, as we attack one another, we have stopped looking deeply within what we see, and totally judge one another from a glance, without truly knowing each other deeply. We say we want to get out within mother nature, then we leave a big mess in our wake, we do not clean up properly as we walk the trails of nature, yes mother nature will cultivate this land and keep it beautiful, but when we the people leave our trash, instead of disposing of it properly, eventually there will be no more beauty for any of us to see.

God was the first farmer as he created all this for us all to enjoy, then came the farmer to cultivate the land, bringing much fruit to us all, but mother nature has always been there to cultivate the landscape that God brought us. We the people and when we stay true to who we are, with the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, can and will bring much hope to each other, but with our actions toward each other, the hope has become lost, while the faith has become buried deep within us, as we have become so divided, that we can not even say a simple hello to our neighbors anymore. This journey through life is so much better when we come together in unity, it is this division that will bring to us, all the hatred, ugliness, and chaos that we see today. We the people started all this ugliness, we the people can end it as well, if only we come together in unity, come together within the house of the Lord, so we can truly see deeply of what we see within the horizon, of the true landscape that God created for us all. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with unity we can overcome anything we set out to do, as we walk within the peace and joy that Jesus taught us, at the time of his journey here with us.

” God gave us the farmer to help mother nature cultivate and sow the seeds, for all the fruits of this land”

” The birds fly through the skies with ease as they glide into the horizon of life, so we can look deeply into that horizon to truly see all its beauty”

God’s Country

” Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give to you”

John 14:27

So pristine, and so different as you explore one journey through mother nature to another. With each trail you walk in the depth of the woods, there is nothing the same, no two trails are alike, and while walking deeply into that thick forest, not only do you learn how great God’s country truly is, but you learn of yourself and to have great confidence in what you do.

God created all this beauty for us all to explore and enjoy, he gave us all this room to spread our wings and relax within the beauty, but we the people and our actions, are ruining all this beauty and even without truly getting out to explore and enjoy it moving forward. Although there are some who are getting out to explore, just for all the wrong reasons, like on Facebook there is a page called, I hiked the 4,000 footers club, well because of this, up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, you have an overload of hiker’s, but instead of hiking for the great reward of the beauty of mother nature, they are hiking just to post on this club’s page for all to see and receive their 5-minutes of fame. There still are some who hike for the true beauty and respect the land, as the drama posters will hike and leave a mess in their wake.

These trails may seem endless at first glance, they may seem like they are so deep within the thick cover of the trees, but when you become comfortable and gain confidence within mother nature, the trails before you will lead you to peace, joy, and serenity. They will lead you to so much beauty, you then become overwhelmed within the thickness of the trees, as you follow the trails, get around all the twists and turn., Then as it pops out right in front of you, the reward from the beauty takes your breath away, as you marvel in its beauty. There are many trails to explore within the beauty of mother nature, these trails will show you just how much the Earth’s floor will change with each step, these trails will bring out all the differences all around you, then as you keep moving forward, will see just how the differences come together, to form so much beauty.

True that these thick forests within mother nature, can also hold some scary times if you don’t move about correctly, they will show you of all the wilderness and the different animals that may lurk within the thick forest, yes these animals are not domestic and are wild, and yes you should be very wary of them, but if you show them respect and you know how to act around them, the chances of them coming at you will decrease, as you both can then enjoy all the true beauty all around you. There is nothing like it, when you truly enjoy all the trails within this journey of life, as now you not only learn of yourself but all that is around you at the same time.

” This journey of life has so many paths to venture down and explore, so unless we change our current actions, then maybe a lot of this beauty will be no more”?

Walk the trail with confidence, hear the snapping of the twigs with each step, if the surroundings are all pine trees? Then feel the softness of the pine needles that fall from trees to the ground below. As you come across a stream to get across, stop, listen to the running water, as it cuts its way through the earth, as it too has a journey throughout this beauty. Listen to the wind whistling through the trees, the many kinds of birds, singing their many tunes with each other. Even if you listen really closely, you can actually hear the earth’s heartbeat, as you repeat step by step along her floor. All these trails and so little time to truly get out and explore, especially when some with their actions do nothing but destroy all that is around them. The mountain trails truly showcase the beauty within God’s Country, They will reward us with breathtaking views, they will also bring discomfort when we do not respect the trails and all that wander them as well. The trails within mother nature may be different than the trails within our paths of this journey through life, but that does not mean to disrespect, trash, and take bad actions to all those around us, The trails are part of this journey, God created a great home for us all, I think if we want to better at respecting everything around us, maybe we should start by changing our actions, get back to sharing the love of Jesus not just within our hearts, but sharing with each other, so we all can venture out to explore all that mother nature has to offer. We may walk our paths within this journey, but it is the trails within the paths, that totally keep us grounded, to be better and stronger moving forward, throughout this journey of life.

” The trails may seem small, but they are a huge part of getting through the thick forests that make up what is, God’s Country”

What is Lurking around the next corner?

” The morning dew of the great outdoors, with all its mysterious views”

The many journeys within this journey of life will have you exploring all that you want while enjoying all the true beauty that Mother Nature holds for us to see.

The night sky gives way to the light of day, you roll over in your sleeping bag, to get a peek out the window of the tent and all you see is the fog of the morning dew. The night sky within the wilderness has no lights from a city sky, it is total darkness, with your senses going crazy with all the sounds off in the distance. You sit by the campfire and relax within the sounds of silence, then a sudden sound of a twig snapping, races the heart alarms your excitement. Your adrenaline level is now full, as now you jump at any kind of sound that is out of your normal. With each passing minute of the dark sky, you hear different sounds that not just intrigue, but have you reaching for a weapon, as you do not know what it is? Then a sound of an Owl chatting with another, then a pack of coyotes howling at the night’s moon, all while the crickets consume most of the noise, from the night sky. You go back to the campfire as now you need to add more wood before it goes out, and with your adrenaline level at its peak, the last thing is for the fire to go out, now you have zero light within the night sky.

With all the different noises of the night sky around you, you walk to the banks of the rivers shore, to look out within the darkness, to look up into the night sky, you can not see too far out into the river, but as you look up into the night sky, you can see more stars than you have ever seen before, you can actually see all the other planets, that are also within the orbit of space, just like the planet that you walk your journey within. now your imagination wakes up and has your mind wandering on many things, as now you forget about the coyotes in the distance and your adrenaline level goes down a bit, so you can let the night sky relax you within the unknown.

You go back to the campfire to restoke the fire and sit to watch the flames, as you become hypnotized from the dancing flames. The campfire is like a form of therapy and therapy so strong, that without saying a word, your body is so relaxed, it becomes hard to get up out of the chair. Your eyes are getting heavy, your head is bopping up and down, you glance at your watch and decide it’s time to retire to the tent, so you go through your nightly checklist to secure everything from maybe a bear or whatever may visit in the night? You poke at the fire and add a log or two? to keep a dim light within your camp, to hopefully keep the animals at bay? You now enter into the tent and ready your bed for the night, as you slip into the sleeping bag, you then just lay there with eyes closed, as the night sky puts you to sleep for the night.

As you wake to the sounds of the morning birds singing their tunes, you stretch your arms as you yawn from a good night’s rest. As you sit up in the bed, you open the window of the tent to look out, you see the morning dew has created a thick fog and you can’t see much at all. You also notice the temperature drop overnight as you get a bit of a chill, so you exit the tent to start a fire for some warmth and put on a pot of coffee to perk its fresh aroma within the sounds of the morning sky. While by the campfire and waiting for the coffee to perk, you look around and notice a Deer out for its stroll, this makes you forget about the morning chill, as you watch the true beauty of nature right before your eyes. You never know what will lurk out of the morning fog, but this time was nothing but beauty as far as you can see. Now your eyes are opening wide to all that is around, the fire burning within the pit, and the coffee is ready for consumption, so as you sip the coffee and look out into the river, the sun begins to break, as it begins to clear the morning fog, you think to yourself, it is going to be a good day within the beauty of mother nature.

There is so much to explore within mother nature, but you never get ahead of yourself or even let any kind of stress dictate where you are going, simply because you forget about any kind of time frame, just relax and take it all in at your leisure. There is no honking of any horns to get you to speed up, it about simply taking in all the beauty that is around you, without any signs saying to rush or move faster. You are now on the time of nature, as you look up in the sky, see where the sun is, to determine the time of day. The longer you stay out within mother nature, the more in tune you become with all its beauty, the more you respect everything around, even the wildlife as you realize that you are within their home now. Just as mother nature can be full of mystery, so can everything else you may encounter throughout this journey, but as you get more in tune with everything, you clearly find that you need not let the fear keep you from enjoying all the true beauty that is everywhere around you.

” We fear so much along this journey, that there are times we do not truly walk our paths as properly as we should”

” Life is too short to let any kind of fear control us in any way, so get out and explore so the fear, we can not fear anymore”

Bridge over troubled waters


” Cast your burden on the Lord, and he shall sustain you”

Psalm 55:22

Years ago I came across this oft-quoted prayer:

” God grant me the serenity to accept things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference”

This prayer expresses an important thought, one we should all pray and live.

We all within our paths of this journey, are or have fought a hidden battle, maybe even many battles, it is these battles that make us into who we are, it is how we fight these battles, pick ourselves up from the falls of the battles, heal our scars from the battles, as we then try to move forward along our paths, to be better and stronger and walk with as little pain and hurt as we can. I get that we think we are alone in the battle and it may feel like it is you against the world, but in reality, there are many more fighting these battles, and even still, there are even many more, that are fighting the same battles as you, just they do not say anything, so they can try to portray as being strong to all those around them.

We all have become so comfortable with hiding our true selves to each other, that now we do not even think twice, to further bringing even more fake realities to all those around us, and even so that, for so many of us, this journey through life has become one big gigantic lie. Let’s not forget, when you say one small lie today, eventually that lie keeps getting bigger and bigger, as now we do not even know how to escape the hold, that the lie has on us, till it eventually suffocates us to a point of no return. Then as the lie suffocates us, now the power of denial gets a hold of us, and that’s a power that can and will, control every fiber of our being.

The battles that we may fight on the outside are nothing, compared to the battles that come to us on the inside. these battles strip us of everything that we are, we hide within ourselves, we bury very deeply our true feelings and emotions, our hearts go cold, as we do not let the blood of Jesus pass through and warm it and our souls, then without the blood of Jesus, now his love gets buried deeply as well. When the heart goes cold, it makes it very easy to no longer resist the temptations that Satan will bring to us, then as we let Satan control us, we know lose all the empathy and remorse within us as well.

This journey through life can and will be as long and as good as we want it to be, but we have to “want” it when we give up, then who knows where this journey will take us, or even worse, who really knows when we will be taken from this journey, and yet still, who knows what lies ahead after this journey comes to an end. With all the different cancers around the world, who really knows just when the journey will end? Whether a disease will get us, or maybe we will end each other, or for whatever reason, we end it ourselves? No matter what, we need to still walk through our paths of this journey, we need still to try to keep putting our best foot forward, no matter of how much pain we may go through, because when we keep plugging and never give up, this is how we then become rewarded, by keeping the faith in Jesus and ourselves, as now the hope will always be there, so the Holy Spirit will then give us the power to overcome the battles, heal ourselves of our troubles, as we keep moving forward along our paths, throughout this journey of life, no matter how long or short, this journey may-be?

There are many battles all around us, whether the battle is on a battlefield, or the battle is within us, it is still a battle and we need to overcome the battle, so we can keep moving forward on our paths of this journey. It then becomes on us for just how we fight the battle, or simply just ignore it, as it furthers us into a spinning turmoil, which we then lose the direction for which we were going. When the direction is lost before us, then a whole domino effect happens, which now we simply just wander in circles, instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. When you see someone walking in circles, don’t just keep walking like he/she does not exist? cause one day that may be you doing the circling, as we never know what battles are being fought within each other, so as you issue bad words out of your mouth at another, remember of the battles, and how if it were you, would you want it done to you? Life can be short, life can be long, no one really truly knows? So let’s walk together in unity and harmony, so we all can be at the peace and the joy, that Jesus wants for us all, throughout this journey of life.

” There have been so many battles fought throughout Mankind, but what we all forget is, we also have fought many battles deep within as well”

” The fake reality is nothing more than a lie that keeps getting bigger and bigger and consumes us all”

Clear the Conscious… Clear the Mind

” I myself always strive to have a conscious without offense toward God and Men”

Acts 24:16

” Keep conscious clear, then never fear”

Benjamin Franklin

Having a good conscience is the best way we keep healthy as we walk our paths of this journey, without a clear conscience we then become like, a rudderless ship at sea, or maybe a missile without a guiding system. Without a clear conscience then our minds get full of clouds, that lead us into turmoil and darkness. Just like the dark clouds of the storm hover above these mountains, they will also hover over each of us, when our consciences become clouded and lead us into the dark times, while the waters within the storm get churned up before us.

The conscience mind is what steers us away from all fear, it is what keeps us from offending or taking offense of all that is around us. When we let this Political Correction that surrounds us now, control everything we do, this is when we let the dark clouds enter within our conscience and lose sight of where we are truly going. We become lost along our paths, as the dark clouds of judgments, steer us in the wrong direction within this journey of life.

The Human Mind and the Human brain, are two of the most complex things we will ever encounter along this journey, and they are both within us every step of the way throughout this journey. When everything we do is all good, everything lines up correctly with no issues, then we move forward without even thinking of our conscience mind? but when things are not so good, the dark clouds become so thick and surround us at every turn, we still do not think of the conscious mind, as we tend to blame other things or even another within this journey. When the dark clouds get so thick, we then fear whatever is around the next turn, we fear so much that we stop moving forward and in a lot of ways, we become stagnate within this journey.

While we are growing up within a society of many, and with everything it throws at us, we lose sight of all other things that are important to us in being truly healthy along our paths. We want so much to just fit in with all that is around us, we lose sight of really fitting incorrectly, and fitting in to be just be hiding in plain sight. Just like when you bring your car in for preventive maintenance, we also need a kind of preventive maintenance, this is how we keep ourselves as healthy as we can, but if we never take the proper care of our conscious mind, then we will not only fear all that is around us, the dark clouds that hover over us, will become thicker with no sight of any light within them.

When Jesus came and walked his journey here with us, there were plenty of dark clouds all around, Jesus taught us how to get through the darkness and into the light. True Jesus was tempted by Satan and the darkness, but he also showed us that, when we kept true to ourselves, kept the faith in him and ourselves, we to can escape the darkness, then walk into the light of salvation. You do not have to be the most powerful person or the smartest person, even they walked through their paths like us, just they kept true to themselves, kept true to Jesus, so they can walk through the darkness unscathed, as they now prosper within the light of this journey through life. Yes, there may seem to be a lot within this journey, but when we walk through correctly, this is how this journey seems easy, this is how this journey rewards us along our paths, and when we properly do preventive maintenance on ourselves, this is how we also can walk through the darkness unscathed, then walk into the light better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

Very true that self-criticism of ourselves is the hardest and painful thing we will ever do, but when we do self-criticism correctly, it also can be the most rewarding thing we will ever do. We only fear self-criticism because we have lost touch with our conscious mind, When we keep in touch with our conscious mind, this is how we truly stay healthy, with our mind, body, and soul. We all of this society do not want to work at anything anymore, we just want to lounge around, while everything comes to us? Nothing worth the while will ever come to us if we first do not put in the time, so we can walk our paths correctly throughout this journey. When we neglect the work for a long time, yes it will bring great pain at the beginning, but when we get through that, it then becomes easier with each step of our paths. True success lies deep within each of us, it is not about the success we have on the outside, although this may help in our physical journey, in our spiritual journey, it’s all about the true success deep within our conscious and our minds.

” The conscious mind is within us all, and is very important on how we walk through this journey of life”

” The clear conscious keeps us from all fear, when the conscious becomes clouded and dark, the fear becomes stronger all around us”
