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”

Setting a table we all share

” He said to them. This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many”

MK 14:24

The Priest sets the table at the Alter, as he gets ready to share the most Holy, Body, and Blood of Christ, with us all. Jesus Christ is everywhere around us and all we need to do is, have complete faith and acknowledge his presence, then we shall feel his blood flowing through our hearts, just like the water flows over the falls and into the pool below. When at church and receiving these gifts, this is the physical way of accepting Jesus within us, the spiritual way is, us believing in him with every fiber of our being.

Jesus is everywhere around just like all the different bodies of water we see wherever we may be. No matter which way we travel along our paths, or whichever direction we go at the crossroads, there will be a body of water that we will pass by, Jesus will be with us at every step along this journey and especially when we truly believe with the faith in him as well as ourselves. When we Pray properly, this is the true communication with Jesus that he will communicate back, by giving us his signs, to follow along our paths, these signs we will see as we truly believe in him, so he can lead us to the path of righteousness and away from all the temptations of Satan himself.

With all the ugliness and the hatred we see all around us, should be a bright red flag to us all, that we need to get back to the power of Prayer, get back to sitting with the Priest as he sets the table at the Alter and gets ready to share the gifts with us all. So we then can truly feel the blood of Christ flowing through our hearts and warming our entire body with his love. Then we all can share this love with each other, as the hatred and the ugliness disappears from this journey. When we share the love of Jesus that’s within our hearts, it then becomes that much easier to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, we then will put in the work to clear the paths as we go, making for a smoother walk for all those who will be walking behind us. This world needs more good Shepard’s to lead properly, and will bring us onto the side of good, as right now we have some who say they are Shepards? Who is bringing us deeper into the darkness of evil?

Even though the days before Christ, you had the darkness of evil, just like we have this same darkness now, so very true that the darkness will always be there, as well as the light, the common denominator to all this is, ” We the People”. When you have darkness and light, just like the light of day and the dark of night, it then becomes totally on we the people and not just how we react to them, but how we put forth our actions within the dark or the light, toward each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We all may think we are smarter than one another, we may think that attacking one another is okay? Well, you can clearly see just how this is turning out, no matter where you turn today. The problems of today clearly lie at the feet of each one of us, as with our actions, we don’t think through the ramifications of our actions moving forward. Then as we do not feel the blood of Jesus flowing through our hearts and warming our bodies, we now have lost all feelings of everything all around us.

With the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will always feel his blood within us, then our bodies will be warm with his love, for then we can share with each other, but when our hearts are cold, we then have nothing to share and even worse, when it comes time for the journey to end, we know have run out of chances to accept the blood of Jesus within us and join him within the world of eternal salvation, which now we enter into the uncertain world of, Purgatory. Within Purgatory, we now enter into the unknown with no true direction, just like as we walked our paths of the journey, without feeling the blood of Christ within our hearts and souls, at least in this journey, we have a chance to fix what we need to fix, in the world of Purgatory, we have no clue if we will have any chances at all. So let’s set our tables at the Alter correctly, so we can truly feel the blood of Christ pass through our hearts and warm our bodies and souls with his love, as he guides us to the path of righteousness, and away from all temptation, so we can share his love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. May we never lose sight of the signs that Jesus brings to us, so as we walk through the shadows of darkness, we will always get back to the true light of Jesus Christ.

” The body and blood of Jesus is always within us, we need to acknowledge him to truly feel his love”

” Set the table correctly everyday, to walk further each and every day throughout this journey”

The many Changes throughout this journey of life

” God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble”

Psalm 46:1

” Lord may every earthly loss serve to lead me to the cross, whatever good things come and go in this life, let the cry of my heart always be, ” God is all I need””

Billy Graham

Throughout this journey of life, there will be so many changes that will cross our paths, they will have our heads spinning, and even so much, we will then become so confused, we get lost with which direction to go. The loved ones that we lose, the friendships that get lost, these are just two of the changes we face, that will change who we are or become, there are so many other changes and very different changes from each other, that no wonder why we of this society have become so broken and confused, not too mention the fact that, we have lost who we truly are as well.

These two pictures I have here, are of the same quarry, but two different looks into the quarry. This is a slate quarry within the state of Vermont, back in a time way before ours within this society, these slate quarries were happening, and a thriving industry, settlements, and townships were created around these quarries, just so they had the labor to keep mining these quarries. Now, these quarries are not so thriving and a lot of the townships, have become Ghost towns, for us to explore as we wish. Back within this time, they did not have the technology of today, but if you explore these Ghost towns, it makes you wonder, just how they built up these towns, with many of the buildings still standing today. Those back in these times really knew how to build, and as I look at some of the buildings of today, those from that time, have built a better product than those of today. Makes you really think of, just how out of focus we have become, simply because of all the power, control, and greed.

Each society throughout this journey is supposed to be better than the last, I get that, but in so many ways, we of this society have taken so many steps backward, than we have taken forward. With all the technology at our fingertips today, but yet how dumb we have become as well, yes, we have some of the smartest minds among us, but as they step out of their labs, they then become so dumb within everyday life. We all want to either invent or be part of the next best thing so bad, that now we lose sight of all the everyday things and not just lose sight, but now we look at all those around us as, not being on the same level as each other anymore. I get that some may be more gifted than others, the IQ of some may be higher than others, but that does not mean, we are different than each other. It is totally on us the people of this society, that this great technology we have, has in some ways, knocked us backward, instead of forward.

Just like in societies of the past, not everybody had a hand in the next best thing, the problem within this society is, we get so jealous of each other for this, that now hatred for one another comes into play, and when hatred gets involved, now you add in a whole different beast, that will grab a hold of us and bring us into a world so ugly, that now we all become someone for who we are not, just to try to avoid all the pain and hurt that will come to us as well. You have leaders of countries today, that are so focused on world dominance, that they will do anything they can to get away with, just so they can achieve this. They do not care who they hurt, maim, or kill either, they want all the power, control, and greed they can get, and when they get it, then we all will suffer such great pain, that none of us will be of who we truly are anymore.

Sumer, located within Mesopotamia, was the first known society of Mankind. There have been many societies within Mankind, but we of this society, have become so out of focus lately, that we think we are the first and only society, that really matters throughout this journey of life. I have a newsflash for you, sometimes it is okay to glance back, not just to see what happened back then, but to see where we once were, so we can fix what we need to fix, in order to move forward better and stronger. Each society throughout this journey, is so very different from one another, that sometimes we need to see what they did, whether right or wrong, so we don’t fall into the same traps they fell into as they moved forward. Some of the Engineers back then, in some ways, were as smart or even smarter than the ones of today. but like all other societies throughout this journey, we all go through many changes as well, and when we do not accept and adapt, to these changes correctly, this is what makes or breaks the entire society, not to mention, the people within the society that want nothing for each other, but everything for themselves.

There were many people in each society, this society is no different than those societies in that respect, which goes to a good point, it is the people of each society and the actions they take, that will either make or break a society. Then you add into the equation of, power, control, and greed, now you have a beast so big, and so strong, that it may seem like we are doomed at whatever we do within the society. We of this society are at such a crossroad right now, we totally think that some will achieve this world dominance? Well, that is determined if we the people step up to the plate, wake up to the coffee of life, look the Bully square in the eyes, so we can put the fear of God right back into them, so they cower away like the true coward they are. You want to think or be better than the previous society? then step up to the plate, accept and adapt properly to all the changes that come our way, so we can end this great divide that divides us so much, to truly move forward and be better and stronger than the previous society. This journey through life isn’t all about me, it is about us, and how I can contribute, so we can totally be better for it, then just maybe this society in the name of God, can truly be, the best society moving forward. We have all the tools to do it, now it is on we the people, and our actions toward one another, that will determine our fate, as we move forward along our paths, through this journey of life.

” Change is something that none of us can avoid, which is why it becomes so much on how we accept and adapt to the change moving forward”

” Each society throughout this journey has had their greatness as well as their downfalls, that’s why we need to learn from the bad to be at our greatest”

This Journey

” Here we spend our time, and what we see”

” What we think about matter”

Psalm 119:37

Corinthians 10:5

It is the many smaller journeys, within this bigger journey called Life, that make us up to be who we are? The Perspectives, the visions, the way we take actions from what we see, to inmplement them in our own way, this not only forms who we become, but what we tend to forget is, it forms many others around us, whether in a negative way, or a positive way.

We are all within this broken society today simply because, we in one way shape or form, have failed each other with our own actions. We have lost sight of one of the biggest conmandments that Moses, brought forth to each of us, from our Father, and the creator of all the beauty around us, ” Love Thy Neighbor”. We do not even know our neighbors anymore, let alone a simple hello in passing, we all move around like we are the creator’s? Like we own everything around us, and are entitled to everything around us? Yes God created all this for us to enjoy, but to enjoy with each other in harmony, without trying to attack and kill each other. Until the day comes that we all get back to who we truly are, we may never get back to a good and healthy society, it all starts with the actions of each one of us, as we move forward within our own journeys, of this journey thru life.

This journey through life has much beauty for us all to see, but when we keep the current actions we are taking, all this beauty will turn to ugliness all around us. Now I get the fact that each society throughout this journey will grow from one to another, but when they do grow and when they are taught the wrong things, from the wrong actions, this is where we have gone so wrong. Plus the fact that we of this society are so far removed from the time when, Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey with us, has led us away from the house of God, and so far away that, there are some who just do not believe, or have formed their own Idealologies about the son of man. Well!!! Unlike the so-called media of today, I have a real news-flash for you, without the belief in Jesus Christ, you can not have any faith, which then leads to no hope.

Faith in anything is key to us walking our paths confidently, to be better and stronger. With faith in our selves, we then can keep moving forward, without stepping backwards into the unknown, and with that faith, we than can have great hope, that helps us to not just be who we are, but succeed in everything we set out to do, as we walk our paths of this journey. Now some in this society who have no faith in anything, will try to bring their inabilities to the rest of us? Then say that, you need to do as I say, because it is the only way? Some and because of their inabilities, will try to wreak all the power over us, so they can seem ( only to themselves), as the most powerful over all others. Then you have the ones that, just simply go with the flow, as to not bring any unwanted pain and hurt, let alone anything that takes away their comfort. People today fear so much of all ugliness and hatred out there, that they forget how to actually take a stand to it, how to look the fear in the eyes, so they can end that fear around them, so they keep to the status Quo, cause they fear more of the actions that may come to them.

We need to change our actions we take toward each other, we attack each other at every turn, this is not what Jesus taught us within his journey here, some will be Politically correct to your face, then stab you in the back when you turn from them? These actions only promote more ugliness and hatred, we need to get back to ” Love Thy Neighbor”, so we then can get back to, our true feelings and emotions, show more love and empathy of each other, then we can actually take the right steps moving forward, of how to make not only this society better and stronger, but make ourselves better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

With each little journey within this bigger journey, there is so much beauty around us, there is so much to truly see of what God created for us, the only way to truly see it is, we need to step out of our comfort zones, step out of our in actions, and get back to our true actions, get back to who we truly are, get back into the house of God, so we can truly feel the blood of Jesus Christ warm our hearts and flow freely within our bodies. When the blood of Jesus flows within us, we then will have the empathy of one another, so we than can get away from the ugliness and hatred, as we move forward within the proper changes, for us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us as he walked this journey with us.

” The many journeys within this bigger journey, are what shapes us into who we truly are”

” Change is all around us throughout this journey, it is how we accept and adapt to the change, that shapes us into who we are”

His most precious Blood

” Jesus Christ, loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood”

Revelation 1:5

” The blood of Jesus Christ, cleanses, from all sins”

1 John 1:7

Even the very wealthy J. P. Morgan had found that, he to was powerless and just as dependant as the rest of us, on the mercy of God. What we take so for granted of today, is that no matter how rocky, or how uneven the land is, it is perfectly level when we all walk together in unity, especially when we walk within the faith of Jesus Christ, so we can feel the blood of our savior passing through our hearts, and throughout our bodies.

When we walk through the doors of the house of God, we all enter equally in guilt and full of sin, we all then leave equally forgiven and free. That same blood of Jesus Christ, is the blood that cleanses us and flows freely within our hearts, leaving us within the true faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, so we all can have the hope moving forward, to achieve all we can, throughout this journey of life.

Somewhere throughout this journey, we have become separated from the love of Jesus Christ, yes he did come walk this journey with us, just that in this society, some just can not truly believe. There will be much change that will come to us all throughout this journey, this change can and will change each one of us for better or worse, it will bring much pain to us as well, but if we do not except and adapt to the change correctly, then the change will always change us for the worse, bringing a pain so deep, that we will hurt deeply, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Within the faith in Jesus Christ, he then will bring us the hope, so we can except and adapt to all the change correctly, as we move forward instead of stepping backwards into the fires of Hell. We lose sight of where we are gong, when we don’t glance back at where we have been, seen what was good and bad back then, so we than can make the necessary adjustments, fix what we need to fix, as we then move forward, without repeating what was wrong and continuing it. This is what’s wrong in todays society, as some take away the past, just to keep all the control of today. These same ones are the ones who have buried the blood of Jesus, making their hearts cold, just as Satan has transformed them.

The great outdoors and walking through nature, is the best way to not only listen and feel the hearbeat of the Earth, it is a great way to get back in touch with the love of Jesus, as he unleashes the flow of his blood, back within your heart, so you can feel the true feelings all around you. Getting back within mother nature, is getting back in touch with the faith in Jesus Christ, as well as getting back the faith in yourself, with this faith, there will always be great hope for us all moving forward, so we can prosper and grow correctly, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, to be within the peace of the Lord, and the joy we all so look for. Then when we are all on the same page, and come together in unity, we will find that there is nothing that will ever try to derail us again.

We may not see Jesus, but he is always there and will never leave us. It is we the people that, with our actions, make it like Jesus does not exist. When we lose the true faith, there will never be any hope, no matter how much we try otherwise. Jesus will send us his signs, but when we neglect to see them, this is the start of our hearts turning cold. when the warmth within our hearts goes away, this should be a red flag to us all, as this is the biggest sign Jesus sends us, so we can make the necessary changes moving forward. The signs of Jesus Christ are all around us, we just have to refocus our minds, so we can truly see these signs, as we move forward along our paths, of this journey through life, to be better and stronger, within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ, as he brings us to the path of righteousness, and cleanses us of our sins, with his own blood.

” The heart is warmed from the love of Jesus, so his blood can pass through it as well as our bodies”

” The cool carm serenity of the great outdoors, will help heal your mind, body and soul”

Happy Birthday to the Catholic Church

” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed”

Romans 12:2

” I have set before you life and death****therefore choose life”

Deuteronomy 30:19

Thought of the day:

As the first church was created, the world was upside down. the imprisonments, deaths and ugliness were overwhelming, Jesus Christ hoped to change our world? but how can we really change when, we are deeply afraid to take a stand or even, to stand out?

There are many bridges and cross roads throughout this journey of life, the thing is, the bridges break down over time, the cross roads with so much traffic, become riddled with ruts and grooves, that can get us all twisted and bruised. We all want everything handed to us today, nobody wants to work for anything anymore, which makes for the bridges not being attended to, or the cross roads not being groomed as well. Back about 2,000 years ago as the Catholic Church was created, that society back then was just as bad as this society today, the big difference is, the technology we have today. Now with technology, it was suppose to make life easier for us all? but in a lot of ways it has complicated life in so many ways, and in ways we truly do not understand.

We the people are what’s wrong in this society and we the people can fix it moving forward. In a lot of ways we all think we are better and smarter than each other, which leads to much head butting, and we as a society not coming together in unity. For instance, when something gets invented you go through a series of experiments, you go through multiple think tanks with many others, you just can’t invent something thinking this is the change all, without getting out all the bugs and issues. Nothing is perfect, not even we the people, as much as some may think they are?

When Jesus came to us and walked this journey through life with us, he taught us many things, he showed us of how not to just be a fishermen, but to be a Fisher of Men. he showed us how to treat each other with respect, so we than can show our love and empathy to each other. He protected us from the evil, while showing us how to resist temptation, as he himself resisted the temptation from Satan. We in this society and because many of us have forgotten what the inside of the house of God looks like, and in many ways given into the temptation of evil and Satan, we have buried our true feelings of love and empathy, as to try to protect ourselves from all evils, which does nothing except, makes our hearts go cold, and stops the heart from letting the blood of Jesus Christ flow freely throughout our bodies. We of this society today, think very strongly that, we know more than all others, which because of this mindset, has lead all into the path and destruction that Satan wants, as we all have gone in the other direction of what Jesus wants for us all.

Change is good, change can be difficult and bring much pain, but if we do not adapt to the change, then we as a society will never see the light at the end, as we all stay within the darkness of Satan and all it’s ugliness it brings. Satan wants us all to be hateful of each other, as this is what divides us moving forward, hate is a learned thing and we have learned it from somewhere? We need to find where we learned it, so we can unlearn it and get back to true love. Everything around us will change constantly, even we ourselves will go through many changes as we walk our paths, we will go through many changes throughout this journey, but if we never adapt to the change, then we will never fully walk any path we choose, along this journey of life.

The Catholic Church was created to give us a place to worship, a place to go listen to the words of God, so we can implement them within our lives? But as time passes and we change and in some ways for the worse, then everything around us becomes diluted with we not being true to ourselves or even true to Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church is a place we go to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so when there is faith, there will always be hope moving forward. When we keep the faith in Jesus and ourselves, no matter what this journey may throw at us, we will always walk our paths with confidence, as we never lose site of the light from the path of righteousness, which keeps those dark days to a minimum, like the night giving way to the daytime.

The Catholic church is no different than anything else along this journey, it has gone through many changes from when it was created, which is what makes it successible like we ourselves, to the changes of life. The church in a lot of ways has given into the temptations of Satan, with all the power, control and greed, which has had it lose sight of the true words of Jesus Christ and then interpreting them to you and I as they see fit. Yes they have had some scandels in the past, and some of these scandels has led us away from the church, maybe if these scandels were handled better and in a way like Jesus handled the temptations from Satan, then our faith would be alot better, leaving us with better hope moving forward.

Sometimes through change things become frazzled and out of focus, when this happens, sometimes it is best to go back to basics, to move forward even stronger. Some in this society want to take away all the history, to give you nothing to glance back at, so you can fix what you need to fix, they want you to become so dependent on them, that you then do not walk a path through this journey for yourself anymore, and now you have become the sheep within the herd, for the small majority of shepards in this world. When we all come together in unity, when we all get back to truly being of who we are, when we all get back to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, this is how we get back to truly feeling the love and empathy within us, as the hate and the ugliness find they can not affect us anymore, when we then as Jesus did many times, resist the temptations of evil, so we all then can see the true hope in front of us, as we walk our paths in peace, and find much joy throughout this journey of life.

” The Philosophy of life is really very simple, just that we the people have twisted in so many ways that we have become out of focus from it”

” The bridge over troubles waters have become frazzled and in need of a fixing to keep all moving forward without falling to the peril below”

The greatest security is the home within Heaven

” Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has no place to lay his head”

Matthew 8:20

” He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”

Psalms 91:1

Thought of the day:

Security is a big deal, it’s why we seek committed relationships, or high paying jobs. That’s also why it’s devastating when spouses leave and jobs are eliminated. Christ is the only true source of security, he will never leave you, or forsake you.

This journey through life we all walk a path within, is very much the same journey that Jesus Christ walked, when he came to us all. I get the fact that some will not truly believe in the son of man, they think it is just a myth, only because we are so far removed from this time, and the fact we of this time haven’t physically seen him, just we can not find the faith to truly believe. Very true that many of us have totally forgotten of what it looks like in the house of God, but you really do not have to walk in through the doors, simply because, if you have the true faith in Jesus Christ, he then lives within you, he gives you the faith in yourself, so you can achieve anything you set out to do. These days we live our lives on the exterior, but when that exterior is taken from us, like our jobs, or relationships, then we become extremely insecure in all we do, we lose faith in moving forward along our paths, then simply wander aimlessly throughout this journey.

Now with all the technology out there, yes there will be many security breaches, but when you truly believe in the faith of Jesus Christ, truly feel his love within your heart, there is nothing or anybody that can breach that security from you. I get the fact that we all want that someone special at our side, but with all the change that happens around us, with the way we change in our own ways, the only real security we can have is, with we ourselves, as we have total faith in ourselves like we do in Jesus. Is there really a such thing as a dream job? Within the way things change around us, there is no set dream job, job security is a thing of the past, as all the companies go through their changes, with these changing times. Each company has an image to portray, and if you do not portray that image, then its not worth your time to pursue that company, no matter how bad you want that job. Sometimes a job you think is not that glorious, ends up being just as glorious as the job that rejected you for an image.

We all in a way, within this society have become so fake, we will put forth a form of fake self toward others in order to try to be excepted by them, but at what cost does this practice really take? Because when we can’t even except ourselves for who we truly are, then how can all others truly except us as well? If we only put the effort in that we do for portraying our fake selves, just imagine how perfect this world would be, if we all put in the same effort, to be who we truly are? Just maybe this world would have more peace, happiness and love within it, as we walk through this journey.

This journey from beginning to end is all the same for each of us, just like we are all equal to each other, but just like we are unique to each other, this journey is unique as well, with the many paths within it for us all to choose from. Now as we choose which path we want to walk, when we do so with the total faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be a wrong path, but when the faith is not there, then neither is the hope as we try to move forward within this journey. With no faith and no hope, we will never be secure in what we do, without any security as we walk our paths, this is where all the chaos and the ugliness will come to us, the problem then is, we will never see clearly along our paths, as the clouds from the chaos, become so dark, we will see no light anywhere on the path.

This society is so screwed up, that we think if we have all the money, then all our issues will go away? Money may buy all your material things, which gives you the fake feeling of security, but take away all the material things, take away all the money, and let’s see just how happy you can be? Within the true faith in yourself and in Jesus Christ, this is all the happiness you truly need, as now you can be truly of who you are, without making a conceded effort, to keep this fake self going. Being fake only breeds all insecurities, and when we put forth this fake self, not only are we not being true to one another, now we can not trust one another, which then leads into the lack of respect as well. All the ingredients we are all seeing around us now, the way we change this is, we all have to start being true to ourselves, start being true to who we are, then all the security we need, will be back within us. The security of knowing Jesus Christ is within us, the security that the faith in ourselves and in Jesus, is warming our hearts, so his blood can flow freely within us, which then gives us hope in all we do. With this kind of security, then we all can walk our paths in peace and joy, throughout this journey of life.

” We may leave our homes and our material things behind as this journey ends, but our true homes are within heaven with our faith in Jesus Christ”

” Without any security then we walk aimlessly through this journey, when we feel secure now we walk with a purpose”

Its all about an Agenda

” An agenda is something that keeps us informed and tuned into what is going on around us, it is not about shoving your ideologies in the face of others, just to keep the fear factor going throughout a society”

***BowlingChef***

We all have our agendas that keeps us going as we walk our paths through this journey, yes we set our own agendas, but what we forget is, one agenda that is good for some, may not be at all good for others. We live in a screwed up society today, a society that has lost its way and forces what they think is right, down the throats of others. The main player in this world of agendas are the far left liberal media, they have their agendas with the main agenda being, to keep the fear factor alive within the lives and at the cost of all of us within this society. The other players are, our so-called leaders within the walls of Washington DC. These Individuals have their agendas as well, and we the people are never in any thought of these agendas, and if you think otherwise? Then you are only fooling yourself to think differently.

I put these two pictures here for a reason, yes one is out of focus, but both are of the same thing, so as one being out of focus, will bring out the point I am making. The good agendas will always be clear for us all to see without any issue, as the out of focus one is how we view all the sick twisted agendas, that the media tries to jam down our throats everyday.

I was watching an episode of Law and Order and as the show shifts to the courtroom, the first thing they do are the opening arguments, we all know what the Lawyers are trying to do here, the Prosecution is trying to convict, and the Defense is trying to get their client off with as little damage as they can, we all know this. But!!! Each of these Lawyers basically have their agenda, and they will do whatever it takes to achieve that agenda. One will damage the other and they do not care how much? Well in that episode the Defense lawyer was simply playing the ” race” card in favor of his client, This got me thinking……if the ” race” card gets played in a courtroom, then what’s to stop it from being played within this society, just to achieve an agenda? This card gets played every single day all around us all, it is an agenda that is so sick and twisted, that it has this society becoming sick and twisted as well. This card has been played in all other societies as well, just that within this society, with all the different platforms and technology out there, we have made this card bigger than it has ever been. We the people are the fault of this, as we get so wrapped up within all the different agendas around us.

I get the fact that we all move forward with our own agendas, but what I don’t get is, why do we need to bring ” race” into the agenda? We all who walk this journey are Human Beings, true there are many different varieties of we as Humans, whether color of skin, religion, or even nationality, this is what makes us all unique to each other. We all bleed the same blood, we have hearts, eyes, mouths, hands, etc… But we have become that stupid that we have to turn a simple thing like an agenda, into something that turns us all against one another and this is sad of us all. I remember the days of walking down the street and saying a simple thing like hello, and getting the same back, this does not happen anymore, I first blame each of us for letting it happen, but the real culprit is the left liberal media and all their sick twisted agendas, that have turned us all against one another, so they can seem like they are more powerful than all else. We the people can end this and we do know how, just that we have bought into the fear that the media has brought us to.

Now it’s not just the media who has their agendas that we fear, it’s the politicians who try very hard for all the power, control and greed of us all, then there are the Corporations as well, we the people are the little guy in this fight, but just like when David slew the Giant, we to can come out on top if we do it correctly? The first thing we need to do is, get rid of all these ” race” card type agendas, start uniting and working together, so we can show those in the left liberal media, that their agendas have zero affect on us, stop listening to all the propaganda out there, and step outside to simply say hello to your neighbor, they way it used to be in years gone by. They want us to fear our neighbors, which is the start of the ” fear” agenda, but if we look the fear in the eyes, then the fear can not hurt us.

This society may be broken, but this society can always be saved, especially when we all unite together, and put an end to all the sick twisted agendas, so we all can get back to truly walking our paths in peace, as we live this journey in happiness, without the media, the politicians and the Corporations, shoving their agendas down our throats at every turn. No matter who you are, where you are from, or the color of your skin, we are all equal to one another, we are unique to each other and we bring different qualities to each other, just that the so-called powers to be, don’t want us to think like this, cause it will strip them of all their power, giving that power right back to we the people. This is how you fix this society for the better, so we all can be better and stronger, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

” Back in years gone by, we used to play in the same sand box no matter who you were? Now we fear who is getting into the box so much that we do not step inside anymore”

” When you see something out of focus, then it is time to adjust your settings, so what you see becomes clear once again”

” A society that is troubled and scorned, is a society that is in need of a major fix so all within the society can be at peace once again”

The many journeys

” We all walk a path through this journey of life, we tend to forget that along the path are many smaller journeys that make up the bigger journey for us to be better and stronger moving forward”

***BowlingChef***

We all have our own likes and dislikes, and the only way for us to find out what they are, is to explore everything around us, so we can find out just what those likes and dislikes really are. There are so many things to chat about in order to determine what you like or dislike? The only one that can determine this, is you yourself. others may support you, or they may guide you, but ultimately, it is you, who truly knows what you like or dislike, as others can only speculate, or simply just give you ideas.

Yes we all walk this big journey called life, but within this journey are so many paths to choose from, we can become so overwhelmed, that quite frequently we will choose the wrong path, and as we keep choosing many paths, can and will become so lost within this big journey, that we then stop walking and start wandering, with no true direction of where we are going? It is okay to explore other paths, as this is the way we find what is the true path for us, not everybody will walk the same path, as we all have very different likes and dislikes. Yes we need to explore each path to find out if it is the right path, but when we get to deep into the path and lose sight of how to get back to the crossroad that turned us down this path, now we become lost along this journey, as now the clouds of our judgments have clouded what is in front of us.

This journey through life will also throw us curve balls, it will also have these life events that come to us. These events are very different to each of us, they are also either very hard to deal with or very miniscule and easy to deal with, yes they can control us as well, and when we let them control us, now we become someone for who we truly are not. These life events are part of life and yes they can come to us by another, who want nothing but to control us moving forward. So as you become lost within this journey, the only way to truly find your way back, is to keep exploring other paths, and stop hiding within yourself, for this does nothing but keep you wandering, without truly walking a path of this journey through life.

Everybody has their own way of dealing with the ups and downs this journey brings to us, some may find different ways to explore and clean the cobwebs that life will bring to us, for me, I love the outdoors and exploring all it has, plus the getting away from the rat race for even a short time, helps with the healing of the mind, body and soul. Mother Nature has her way of giving you a different outlook of what is around you. It is when you do not explore what life has out there, now you continue down a path, that is not really for you, and you then become bitter and unhappy, as you walk through this journey. The more bitter you become, the more hatred you develop, as you can clearly see all the hatred within this society we all walk our paths within.

Hiking, off grid camping, kayaking, these are great outlets to totally relax and clear the cobwebs, now true some may not like these, but there are so many more outlets, you just have to explore and find the right outlet for you. These outlets will help us refocus, determine things we have forgotten about, so we can get to truly of who we are, then get back to walking with confidence, along the path of this journey through life. Now some may not want us to remember any history, but it is the history we need to remember, so we don’t repeat it moving forward, plus it is the history, that helps us glance back and fix what we need to fix, as we move forward better and stronger, while we escape within Mother Nature and heal ourselves, not too mention, look at all the true beauty all around you.

Look out into the horizon, it may seem endless at first glance, but as we grow and learn correctly along this journey, we find many horizons for us to explore. Whether your looking at a horizon from the top of a mountain, as you paddle a kayak along the river, or maybe sit along the sandy shoreline and staring into the ocean, the place we look into the horizon may be different, as each path we walk, but the horizon is all the same, just like this journey through life we all walk together. There are so many similarities all around us, but if we do not truly see them, then all will always be different, no matter how we look at them. When your path is full of bumps that will bruise you and leave a scar, it becomes all about how you get up from the fall, dust yourself off, heal the bruises correctly, so you than can move forward better then you were. Some may get right back up like nothing happened, while others either never get up, or take a very long time to get up, it is not about the time it takes you to get up, it is about how you get up from the fall, how you stay true to who you are, without hiding within yourself, and never really reaching your true potential.

There are so many little journeys within the even bigger journey we all walk, the key, is for us all to explore and find the right one that best fits us, then excel within that journey, so we can be truly of who we are, so when we walk our path we choose, we actually do the work of clearing that path of the obstructions, so we can move forward better and stronger, within the peace and happiness we all so need and deserve, as we walk through this journey of life.

” This journey comes with many ups and downs that will knock you down and bruise you, which then makes it of how you pick yourself up and heal from the bruises of life”

” Just as you look deeply into the Abyss, look deeply into the horizon and ask yourself, of just how to get to that point and explore all that comes before you”

” You are witnesses of these things”

LK 24:48

We of this society within this Political correct world, simply let other’s take control of who we truly are? Why? Because we let our perception of what we see cloud our judgments, as we lose the direction of where we are going along our paths of this journey. Perception is one of those things that we all will do differently, you can take one thing and have ten people look at it, and the result is, ten different perceptions of that one thing. Multiply that by each Individual on this planet… Well you get the picture? Now you add in the source of where the information comes from, example like the far left liberal media, and now you have perception on steroids’, with drama, agendas, and chaos all around us.

We all will be a witness of many things, but one thing some may not witness because they take it for granted is, stepping outside and seeing the true beauty of mother nature. Mother Nature will always be there to show us her beauty, but instead of focusing on her fury that the media will surround us with, we will never see past that, in order to truly look at her shine in her finest moments. Most will never go off grid camping, pitch a tent to make your bed within, so you can lay down and truly feel the heartbeat of this planet, they would rather stay in a hotel, order room service, and look out the window, then say they saw mother natures beauty? Most will see this waterfall, but only a few will truly look at this waterfall and ask questions like, how did this waterfall get here? This waterfall was formed by a Glacier that happened way before any of us were alive. The Glacier formed the rocks, as the mountain stream flowed so fluently over the rocks and into a pool of water below. Most will just see it as water that flows over a cliff of rock, as few of us truly look at it in awe! Of the true beauty that mother nature holds for us all.

Today within this crazy society, when we say witness? We immediately think of, being a witness of a crime that has been committed? We forget or take advantage of the fact, we all have eyes to see with, for which now we are all witnesses of everything around us, whether good or bad. If a dog runs in circles now we are the witness of watching that dog run in circles, when the sun moves from one side of the sky to the other, now we are witnessing the movement of both the sun and the earth in harmony. You see an Eagle fly through the sky high above you, now you have just witnessed that Eagle in flight. We are all witnesses everyday as we walk our paths through this journey, but the problem is, we take so for granted of everything, that we don’t truly look at what we are seeing.

Even if you only see the same things day to day as you commute to your daily 9 to 5’s, you are still a witness of what you are seeing on a daily basis, just that we don’t look at it in that way? There is so much beauty right there in front of us everyday, but the sad part is, we do not allow ourselves to truly see what we are looking at, we may glance at something, but we never truly look, because we so fear this politically correct world we are in today. A lot of the problem is not we ourselves, it is all the agendas and the drama, that is forced down our throats by all the media types, and our so called leader’s around us, they will only tell us what they want us to know, so they can keep to their agendas, which happens to be, the power, the greed, and the control of every one of us throughout this society.

This journey of life does not have to be this way, but it will never change if we ourselves do not change. Yes change can be difficult and hard, but when change comes for the better, then it can be even more beautiful, then mother nature herself. Change will never come if we keep to the status Quo, which makes it even more important for us all to step outside our comfort zones, and let the change come, so we all can accept it, to move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Change, is all around us everyday, just like mother natures beauty is all around us. They both can bring us fury as well as bring us beauty, but like the world of political correction, we fear greatly all the change, as we let it cloud our judgments and never truly see the beauty right in front of us. Unless we can all truly be a witness of what we are seeing, we may never look at any beauty around us, and truly see how beautiful it really is? This journey of life really is not that hard, but we ourselves make it hard with our actions, and how we perceive everything around us. May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, as we all walk our paths through this peace, throughout this journey of life.

” Do you truly see what you are looking at? Or do you perceive what you see without truly looking at what you see”

” Political correction is making us all weak, we need to truly see it for what it is, so we can look deeper into all the true beauty around us”
