” There are journeys, then there are journeys that take you on quite a ride, but to truly experience the journey, you first have to go out and explore all that is around you”
One if by water, two if by land, but back in the day there were not any of the land surfaces that were paved for what was to come.
The rocks, the trees, all the loose debris, even the mountains, there were so many obstacles to overcome along the journey.
The long road with many twists and turns, may seem at first as being too much, but through time we see different.
There is this journey within the journey, but through time we see it in a very different light.
That long and quiet paved road with much beauty right there before your eyes.
The power lines that are stretched out along the road, and as you follow this solid yellow line til the end.
But unless you have a good sense of direction and awareness for the surroundings, now you are lost along the journey.
When you are lost then a whole different beast will raise its ugly soul, to steer you off course of the journey you want.
The trees no matter what season, will be as alive and vibrant as can be, or just in place to fill a spot around you.
Then there is this landscape and the mountains, that bring this majestic grandeur to everything that is around you.
There is never a ride down a quiet paved road, that will ever disappoint, or be any kind of waste at any point.
There is never a journey through the back roads that will ever disappoint or be for not.
There are so many unpaved roads all around us, but not one will ever be for not.
Each road will have it’s own uniquness, each road brings it’s own beauty, and never for not.
True you will have to drive more careful on the unpaved road, as the journey is never for not.
On the water there is no set road, with signs or a set path to follow, it’s a whole different kind of traveling this journey.
There are so many different vessels to travel on the water, so just pick the right one that best suits you and your needs.
The journey on the water can only be at certain times, as the weather and the frozen water will determine that.
The tides and the waves, that bring strong current, with the wind making for waves to slap the shores of the rocky beach.
When the waves are large and the current strong, then your vessel will become slapped around, like the rocky shoreline.
With a kayak you move through the water with the stroke of a paddle, as the paddle glides through the water.
As the paddle glides through the water from side to side, now you move forward through the water.
Now when you are paddling with the wind in your face, makes for a difficult time paddling throiugh the water.
Paddling through the water on this kind of journey, will definitly add another level to all the beauty through life.
While yes, it is more work then traveling the other journeys, but work very much it as you enjoy all the beauty,
There are so many journeys within this journey of life, the only way to see them, is to get out and explore through them.
Get out to see all the true beauty all around you, so you can put the ugliness in the rear view mirror where it belongs.
There is so much to say of the great outdoors, but nothing better than the power of healing it has for each of us.
Some may say that being outdoors within nature will have you talking to yourself and no one other?
What that truly is, the soul telling you the person to stop, and see all the beauty around you, for total relaxation of the mind, body and soul.
Mother nature will do that, but if you do not stop, you will never truly now the true power of mother nature.
Too many of us today are constantly on the go, we think this is what life is, so unless you stop, you will never truly know anything at all.
We think mother nature is all evil and with many devastating storms, well you are not getting out within her beauty to truly see.
True you do not want to cross mother nature as her fury can be devasting, but those times do not out weigh all her beauty.
” There are so many journeys within this journey, but if we do put the ugliness in the rear view mirror, we will never see the true beauty of any of the journeys”
” whether the road is paved, or the road is dirt, or even if it is not even a road, but on a body of water, it is still a journey to go explore and see all the beauty you can, before this journey through life comes to an end for us all”
” Just as we ourselves are unique to one another, these journeys within the journey, are also unique to each other, bringing the power of healing to us all”
