Such a tragedy in a place that, there is suppose to be peace and serenity, a place where you go to escape the ugliness? Although this poor Individual unexpectedly walked right into it. The Individual in question had served three tours in Iraq, came home not the same man he once was, he suffered from PTSD and depression, his wife says he would sleep all day and either watch TV, or play video games by night, the two had separated as he fell further into depression. Finally one day he wanted to truly find himself again, so he took to the trails of the Appalachian trail. This trail is supposed to be about peace and serenity, while you walk within nature, it helps you to clear your mind and feed your soul, it is not suppose to have any ugliness on the trail at all, but unfortunately, the ugliness found him in the form of an mentally deranged Individual.
This Soldier of three tours didn’t ask for this, as all he wanted was to truly find of who he once was, so he can continue moving forwarded better and stronger throughout this journey. Yes the person responsible was captured and brought to justice, but a little too late for this true American Veteran hero, as now he will never get that second chance, to be of truly who he really was.
Sometimes life just isn’t fair, this journey and all that happens within it, will bring great pain and hurt, this journey will turn us into someone we truly are not, with all the ugliness that is around us, most of the time it isn’t even our fault, as a lot of our pain and sufferings comes from another, or a situation that we have entered into. Then as we try to fix ourselves, it becomes even worse, as we then try to escape into a place where we think is safe, a place that has nothing but beauty all around at every turn, then unexpectedly, we are facing ugliness square in the eyes.
This tragic event within the trails of the Appalachian trail, should really of never happened, as this trail is within mother nature, with all the true beauty you can see far and near, when you plan this hike and take the first step on this great trail, the last thought in your head is any kind of ugly thought. There are many who hike, have hiked and will be hiking this trail, they do so because they have become lost on their path of this journey, they want to embark on a place, where they can clear the clouds of their judgments and truly get back to who they truly are. Depression no matter how you have entered within, will eat you from the inside out, while most of the time you hide deep within yourself and never let anybody in. The great Robin Williams is perfect example, as he brought us all to laughter, while he suffered deeply within, from this silent killer known as, ” Depression”. It can and will strike anybody and does not discriminate. Just like a member of the animal kingdom who prey on the weak for their next meal, so does a mentally deranged Individual prey on the weak, so they can feel more powerful, in their warped and twisted mind. The problem lies with our so called Leader’s who when they need more cash for their agendas, the first thing they cut is mental institutions, so now these Individuals have no where to turn, except maybe those who are around them and in a negative way, instead of a positive way. Yes in depression we don’t want others to know, nor do we not want to acknowledge, we have become victim of this depression, but when we take steps to fight it and instead we find the ugliness, this is what makes the actions so tragic, as we try to move forward better and stronger, along our paths of this journey through life.
” Go from three tours in a hostile place to, back home and try to be the same person you once was”
” The Appalachian trail is deep within mother natures beauty, the problem then lies with each of us turning to the ugliness and burying who we truly are”
Pauley Perrette, AKA……….. Abby sciuto for 15 seasons on the number one T. V. show NCIS. I just read an article of her, plus seen some of her tweets recently and she talks about workplace abuse and because of some big machine, a very rich powerful publicity machine, that has kept her silent. This machine has been spreading lies and false stories, now what I read in the article or tweets, mentions no one by name, but the words ” big powerful publicity machine” could be a tell that, it’s none of the cast, but even bigger like a network top exec? like maybe a Harvey Weinstein type? We the people are our own worst enemies, we cheat, lie kill, hurt, mame each other to name a few, this is not of who we truly are and we all need to get out of the walls of denial, before it is too late and we all are gone from existence, gone from walking a path, not just within a society, but within this journey of life.
Pauley Perrette for those who do not know, I have seen her on some talk shows in the past and let’s just say………. she was as real on the show as she is in real life, she is a total sweat heart and would go out of her way to help you. Pauley in real life was a big activist on Bullying, but as I read in the article and got from her tweets, sounds like she was the one being bullied forced to keep quiet from a big, rich, publicity machine. Very sad thinking that here she is counseling others and she is the one being bullied? This is so sad and knowing this is going on everywhere, makes you wonder when, we as a society will grow up, be truly of who we are, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we can do so in the peace of Jesus Christ, to be as truly happy as we want to be, while we feel deeply inside our hearts and souls, the love of Jesus Christ, then share that love with each other, instead of all this hatred and ugliness, that does nothing but bring each of us much pain and hurt.
We the people can be as smart as anything and everyone throughout this universe, but with our actions of each other makes us so dumb and childish, that I only hope that someday in my lifetime, we can grow up and walk our paths as Jesus did, so we can see the light on the path of righteousness, so instead of bringing harm, hurt and pain to each other, we can share our love of ourselves with each other always. Now with all the ugliness and the Bullying out there, I really do not think that any of us even love ourselves? This is where it starts, we first have to love ourselves, then the love within will flow to all those around us, as then and only then, will all the ugliness, pain, and hurt disappear from this society. It is not rocket science, we are not building a rocket to go to Mars, we are only loving ourselves then sharing with each other, just as Jesus showed us when he came and walked his journey here with us. We the people of this society need to grow up, we need to escape the walls of denial and truly be of who we really are. Then just maybe we all can walk together as Jesus did, on the paths of our choosing, throughout this journey of life.
” Abuse of any kind, the bulling also should never be tolerated, to be truly of who we are on our paths of this journey”
” When we bully another all we are doing is, burying our own pain and hurt even deeper within, as we never acknowledge only keep pushing it away”
” Jesus never showed us this, as the bullying and abuse is totally on we the people”
” It is easier to take the actions of love from within, instead of putting on a fake face and taking the action of hatred and ugliness”
” As Robin Williams was quiet of his troubles, so to is Pauley of her’s, time to stand up and find the voice of reason, so we all can move forward better and stronger”
We all walk our paths through this journey of life, the paths are not always smooth or paved, a lot of times things happen to us along this journey, things we can’t explain or change, these happenings do not have to define us, nor do they have to dictate of where we are going through this journey, the choice is yours to make in order to walk your paths with confidence, walk your paths to be better and stronger, so as your path before you may look rocky or a bit out of source, the choice is yours to make in order to navigate along your path as best you can, so you yourself can dictate this journey the best way you can and make the path as smooth as you can.
We are all part of a Society that they to walk their paths of this journey, yes we do meet at the crossroads, but we don’t have to follow them and we can blaze out our own paths as best we can, so we than do not get caught up in all the ugliness like we see today throughout this society. Our inner strength comes from that child within us and when we don’t let that child grow correctly, then we lose that inner strength, which then has us become weak and unable to protect ourselves properly from all harm, which then has us all becoming so consumed within all the ugliness we see today. This does not mean we are better than each other, just that some may try to make others think that they are? Which then has us like…………… Thinking that whatever we do is wrong, but on the contrary, there is no wrong along this journey through life, especially if we walk our paths as best we can, without forcing ourselves on each other, without harming each other or bringing great pain to each other, when we respect each other, when we show love toward each other, then no matter of the path you take, we all will find that path of righteousness that Jesus showed us along his journey here with us, the path of righteousness is the path where there is no evil, no ugliness and that path where we all love one another as Jesus loved us, when he came to us and walked here with us.
This is the start of the 40 day journey of Lent, that same journey Jesus walked to not only show his love for us, but to show us all that there is a way around the ugliness and walk this journey in peace and happiness always. The choice is always ours to make, when we make the right choices, then the path that seems rough at first glance, will then become better, not that the terrain becomes smoother, but because we ourselves will see everything much better, because we than do not look at everything as evil. When we see everything as tough and evil, then Satan will sense this this and then the evil and ugliness will seem to grow around us, the choice is ours to make along our paths of this journey, the time is now along this 40 day journey of Lent, to make all the right choices, so we can end all the evil and ugliness, to move forward in love, peace and happiness always, as our Savior Jesus Christ showed us, along his journey here with us, throughout this journey of life.
” 40 day journey of lent for us all to renew and make better our paths of this journey through life”
” All paths have their degree of difficulty, its we who make the difficult less of to make the paths better as we walk”
” The paths and the happenings along the paths never have to dictate where we are going along the paths”
” How can you say to your brother, Brother let me remove that splinter in your eye, when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?
*** LK 6:42a***
This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and as we enter into the forty day journey of Lent, let us remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, showing just how deeply he loved us, while he to walked this journey, showing us all that yes, we to can share our love within, with each other.
Basically this quote talks of, before we can reach out to help another, we first need to help ourselves and over come all that we may be going through and struggling through. If you want to pull that splinter out of your brothers eye, then first clear the obstruction from your own, so you than can see clearly of what you are doing and as you see clearly, then the clouds of your judgments, will then be gone as the love within you, will then not only comfort you, but comfort your brother, as you remove the splinter, so he to can see clearly along this journey of life.
We all have our issues as we walk our paths of this journey, but yet we always see the faults of others and never see any faults of our own, we are always quick to point the finger towards others, but never point the finger at ourselves and accept any blame for whatever we do, others will surely pick up on our faults before we even recognize them ourselves. We are all guilty of this behavior, but we will never admit to any faults we may have.
A lot of times these faults will bring us great shame, shame that brings us great pain and when we hurt deeply inside, we then bury these faults deep within, so we than can try to move forward like there is nothing holding us back. So as we do this, we than never look at our own faults, instead we point out the faults of others, which then will stop us from truly getting to know one another, only forcing us to look at each other superficially, without truly looking deeply at what we see. There is always more than what we may see initially, just that we don’t truly want to see, cause then it will make us look deeper into ourselves.
Jesus as he walked this journey with us, showed us all that when we stay true to ourselves, truly feel our feelings within and feel the warmth of his love within us, then we to can not only love ourselves, but love all those around us, without any evil or unwanted thoughts. Nobody ever wants to show any fault, as this will bring out weakness and within a broken society as we are currently in, then any weakness will bring us more shame and pain, which we then will be open to becoming a victim of any kind, furthering the pain for which we already have.
Weakness brings pain and in a society of fakness, weakness makes you vulnerable over those who pretend to be strong, as they then seem to be more powerful than they really are. We never want to admit to our faults, so we than can bury them and seem strong to those around us, while we then point the finger of fault on those around us. We are all guilty of pointing the finger of blame, which does nothing but deflect any blame from ourselves, so we then never fix what we need to fix, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
So as we walk yet another Lenten journey, let us do so as Jesus did these next forty days, let us sacrifice as Jesus did for us, as we truly get back in touch with our true feelings, unbury those faults as we work to fix what we need to fix, then we can truly move forward better and stronger and treat each other with respect, to keep our dignity, showing our true love for each other, then we can walk confidently on our paths, through this journey of life.
” Lets walk this journey of lent and sacrifice as Jesus did for us, to be better and stronger moving forward”
” Faults can only be fixed when we stay true to who we are, without burying them like they are nothing but dirty laundry”
” The journey of lent is a forty day journey, to get back to who we truly are, to become better and stronger moving forward”
” Our issues do not have to define us on our paths, they should help us to be better and stronger moving forward”
” Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you or insult you, denounce your name as evil, on account of the son of man. Behold your reward will be great in Heaven”.
***LK 6:22, 23b***
The son of man or otherwise known as Jesus Christ, when Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he never did so out of hate, he never even acted as if there was even any hatred as part of him, Jesus treated us all as equals and yes there are no two of us alike, so tell me who you are and I am welcoming you with open arms.
As calm and as beautiful as this picture is within Nature, is all that we could ever imagine of what to expect within Heaven. First we all have to drop all the hate, as this is what just may stop us from truly meeting Jesus within the beauty of Heaven. Jesus showed zero hate of anybody while he walked his journey here with us, hate comes from right here with us, as we are the ones that developed this hatred that is among us today. Socialism breeds hatred and the dividing of each one of us, against each other, even while the love of Jesus Christ is within the hearts and souls within us.
Hatred takes a lot of work everyday from each of us, as love is very natural and within us all and takes zero effort to spread it with all who is around us. Why this hatred has spread among us today, I really have no answer for this, because this is not truly of who we are and it is not of what Jesus taught us along his journey with us. I get the fact that we are all very diverse of each other, but this diversity should never be of what divides us so, we are all very unique to each other, which when we bring forward our uniqueness, then we can move forward better and stronger, out of the love of Jesus, with zero hatred anywhere along our paths.
When those among us call us names, hate on us, or simply exclude and insult us, only means one thing of those who do this, which is the fact that these Individuals have zero self esteem of themselves and have zero belief or faith in Jesus Christ our savior. If only these Individuals could have any faith in Jesus Christ, then there could be hope for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life, so we all can be in the peace of God, with nothing but true happiness at every turn of the journey.
The love of God within us all will warm us so,
The belief and faith in Jesus will give us much hope,
As we all search for the entrance of the pearly gates to Heaven,
Let us forever end the hate, to share the love that is within us all.
” Hate is the ugliness that surrounds us today, love will always turn the ugliness into great beauty”
” Socialism is nothing but hatred and division and is truly of who we are not”
” Love is within us all with great beauty and warmth as through love there will never be any hatred”
” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
When we all struggle in our daily grinds and become Weary, we grab a cup of coffee, maybe a power nap to energize us, sometimes even a weekend away, but these things are just temporary for our outer bodies, what Jesus Christ offers us is, rest for our souls and we just have to come to him in order to receive the true rest we deserve.
When Jesus gives us rest, he is truly giving us peace and contentment within our souls, so we than can breathe easier, breathe in the quality air around us, as we breathe deeply, which is totally relaxing the mind, body and soul. When Jesus gives us the ultimate rest, he is giving us the confidence we need, to escape the frustration and the chaos of the World around us. Rest in him and don’t worry about what lies ahead, as Jesus Christ has already taken care of the tomorrow for us.
The forty day journey of Lent is right around the corner, a time where Jesus walked his journey sacrificing for each of us and now, as we walk through these forty days, we to need to sacrifice a piece of us, so we than can become one with Jesus, as he helps us by giving us our ultimate rest. This Lenten journey we sacrifice, will help us flush all the bad from our mind, bodies and souls, so we than can be left with good, which will allow us to breathe deeply the love of Jesus and totally relax, to get the true rest we deserve.
Sometimes as we walk through our daily grinds, we think we are getting rest and sleep, but all we are doing is closing our eyes, while the thoughts of the day still flood our heads with negativity, this negativity keeps us from truly falling asleep, as the negativity consumes us, it then controls every fiber of our being and without the faith in Jesus, we then will never be able to come to him, as we then will give up trying to come to him, so we can have hope and truly be at rest within our souls. When our souls are at rest and we can feel the love of Jesus within us, this is when all the chaos of the world leaves us, this is when we breathe deeply all the beauty around us, this is when we all can be totally at peace, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” Rest for the weary is more than just closing your eyes, it’s coming to Jesus so he can clear our souls of all the chaos of the world”
” The daily grind can and will consume us with the chaos and the negativity of the world”
” The coffee, the power nap, or even the weekend away are just a temporary fix, as Jesus fixes us permanently throughout this journey”
” The forty day journey of Lent is the time for us to sacrifice, as Jesus did for us”
” Glory to God in the highest and on Earth peace”
Hope for today
We could never do for ourselves as God has done for us, when we give complete control to God, you fill us up with your peace, then you let us be an instrument of that peace, to a broken and hurting World.
When you step outside of the cities you can clearly see all the peace around us, this peace helps us to heal from the stress within the cities, as the peace of God is within us all, as we truly feel the warmth within our hearts and souls. which is God’s love giving us that peace, to move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.
As we walk through this journey and at the beginning, we truly believe and have faith in God with his son Jesus Christ, this is what helps us grow healthy and become a productive part of Society, but as we walk further we then drift away from God and his son, then leaving us open to all the ugliness and hatred that comes with a Society. We then later learn that Jesus Christ has never left us, just that we lost the control which God uses to guide us safely. The peace of God is always within us, we just have to acknowledge it, to truly feel it, which gives us the warmth of his peace that flows through our hearts and souls, bringing out the love of Jesus Christ for us all to be happy, as we then share it completely with each other.
All the hatred and the ugliness that is around us, only comes to us because not only have we lost the control that God uses but we have also lost the faith, which then gives us plenty of hope, for all we do as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Jesus doesn’t pick and chose who he loves, as he totally loves each one of us equally, no matter of who you are. Now as we lose the control and the faith, we then ignore Jesus Christ, as he would never ignore us. Now we may think that Jesus will never forgive us for the error of our ways, but he will always forgive us no matter of who we are, or what we have done? When we don’t truly forgive ourselves, then we don’t give Jesus a chance to forgive us and that is when the faith becomes lost, leaving us spinning out of control and further away from God and his son Jesus.
It is very easy to believe and have faith in Jesus, the hard part comes when each of us wander away from him, as we then let the greed, the ugliness and the hatred control us, instead of us having complete control for Jesus, as he then guides us to the true path of righteousness. Jesus will forever love us, as his love will never wander away from us, it is only us that don’t acknowledge his love, which then leaves us cold inside and open to all the hatred and the ugliness that is around us, throughout this journey of life.
” The love of Jesus Christ will never fail us, it is we who fail ourselves”
” May the peace of Christ always be with you, so we can heal from all our troubles and pain”
” The peace within is Jesus filling us with the warmth of his love, the peace around is the beauty we see of Mother nature and all it’s tranquility”
