Times change… People change… in more ways than one

Every mountain has it’s trails, just as all the paths we walk within this this journey are the trails of life. No matter of the trail or how many times you walk the trail, there will be many changes that come to the trail, some changes can be very drastic and very noticeable, while other changes are minuscule or so small, that you may never notice, unless you look deeply into what you see. All trails never stay the same,  there is always something different no matter how many times you walk the trail,

Just as the trail changes, so do we the people as well. We all have our issues and no one that walks through this journey has no issues, the issues are the same as the the changes of the trail, they can range from very drastic, to very minuscule as well, sometimes the issues are brought on by our own actions, other times they are brought on by those around us. These issues are what changes us over time, the changes can be for the better as we move forward, or the changes can be very negative, that in many ways has us moving backwards and becoming lost within the clouds of our judgments, the changes we go through can and will take us from being of truly who we are, to being someone of who we are not, which will have even ourselves, not recognizing the person for which we are.

Life is full of change all around us, there is nothing that does not go through change. It is how we deal with the change, that determines not just of who we truly are and become, but how we treat each other as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we are not of who we truly are, which is the love and empathy that is already within our souls, this is when we tend to pull back  from those around us and pull in others of the same, then form a pack that attacks those that are not part of their pack, this also brings ugliness and hatred into the mix, which then complicates things further, instead of making things better moving forward. This is not truly of who we are, as through love and empathy, we actually feel deeply and care deeply, for those around us and will never harm another at any time throughout this journey.

We all have our quirks that pretty much we become accustomed to so much that, we really do not realize when they become an issue, one of the biggest quirks is, the way we speak our words to each other and through this world of political correction, has us all turning against each other and dividing us as a society, then we never really try to fix and change this, but instead point the finger of blame on one another, not just to deflect from ourselves, but to make light of our issues, to focus on the issues of another. With that said……….. I get the fact of some of the older generation taking offense to the way President Trump met and chatted with the Russian leader Mr. Putin, but I am sure President Trump remembers greatly of the past, when all were scared when the alarms sounded,not knowing if the big one was going to be dropped, from the days of the dark cold war with Russia. That was then, this is now, times have changed as well as we the people also. It is very hard to let go of the past, especially when you don’t take the necessary steps, to fix what you need to, so you can move forward better and stronger. President Trump is old school and is set in his ways, but that should never take away the fact that, he is a very smart man that has the best interests for America deep within himself and wants so badly, to improve all our paths within this country so badly. that His actions to this point speak for themselves and we can clearly see that he is improving and living up to his campaign promises. The problem lies deep within ourselves, simply because our judgments have been lost in the clouds within us for so long, we clearly have become very quick to judge other’s and point the finger of blame away from ourselves, as we have totally forgotten how to except responsibility, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then continue moving forward along the trails of our path, through this journey of life.

 

” Change comes to each of us in many ways, it is how we deal with the change that determines of who we become within this journey of life”

” There are many trails within this journey to explore, as each of these trails go through many changes as well”

” We climb the trails of the mountains to explore and see new things, but we do just the opposite as we walk our paths of this journey”

” Before we become quick to judge other’s, let us first look deeply within ourselves and fix our own issues moving forward within this journey”

 

 

 

 

 

The Journey of the trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The journey of the trail, some trails are short and some long, some trails are an easy nature walk, as most will test your skill and endurance, none the less all trails offer you the same thing…………. The fact of getting outside and being one with nature.

Don’t be frightened of how the trail may look at first glance, as you will never experience true beauty, as you would on the trail of your choosing, while you look deeply into what is all around you. The journey of the trail will have you travel along many different terrains, with some being muddy and murky, others bumpy with many curves, then as you climb higher, now you walk among the clouds on top of the rocks, that make up the summit of the mountain.

All trails start with the getting out of your vehicle and putting on your gear, including a good pair of hiking boots. You want a good solid but comfy boot, as this will determine of just how good of a day you will have on the trail. You will also need plenty of water as you will need to stay hydrated on the trail, not staying hydrated will lead to a whole different issue, than just walking the terrain of the trail. Don’t forget the first aid kit and keep it stocked, as you never know for what will be needed, especially on rugged terrain. Then there is the much needed snacks for the trail, as with the calorie burn, you will need to replenish the body with the important vitamins. When you are on the trail, you simply never know what you may en-tale? So it is important to be as ready as you can be, for what ever that the trail may have in store along your journey.

Hiking along a trail can be the best and funnest of times, as it can also be the hardest and worst memory of your life, which makes it even more important to be ready for whatever you may come across, to minimize the worst and greatly improve the best of times, you never forget the camera as well, so you can keep good records and good memories, not to forget that, you can capture some really good pictures of many different kinds of animals and plant life, that you may normally never see, in your everyday world. of the 9 to 5 and go home to sleep for the next day.

While there may be many different hikes out there, some being day hikes and others over night hikes, the one that really grabs me is the Appalachian Trail, at just over 2100 miles, ranging from Georgia to Maine and all the states in between, this hike takes six months from start to finish, through all different terrain and all different kinds of weather that Mother Nature may throw at you, but none the less, when you complete this hike, it will not only give you a sense of accomplishment, it will give you a huge confidence boost, that will have you feel like that is nothing you can not do.

Within this broken society for which we all live, sometimes we get so caught up in things that drag us down, instead of pick us up, that we forget about doing things that make us feel great. We are afraid to do things that we think others will poke fun at us, so we then lose sight of just doing things that makes us happy, as we than can walk our paths of this journey through life in peace, so we than can feel good of ourselves, regardless of what others may think of us? Life is too short not to live as we want to live, but always remember that, when we do it correctly, then life itself will bring us great rewards as well, without being sad or depressed for living a life of regret, because we were too afraid to simply be ourselves, be the true person of who we truly are and not the fake person that we hide in plain sight within this broken society.

 

” The journey of the trail encompasses many things, but nothing better then making us all feel good of ourselves”

” When the terrain becomes rugged and steep, is when we are at our best along the trail to persevere and complete the trail”

” Never forget of truly who you are, as this will always help in us feeling good of ourselves, within this broken society”

” The trail may be long or it may be short, it is still a trail that we can walk, to help us all in being truly of who we are”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mountains are calling……….

To those who have never trekked upon any mountain, let alone mountains that stand tall before them. When climbing any mountain you first have to be prepared for any weather changes that mat occur, then there is the terrain whether rocky, muddy, degree of steepness, or fallen trees in your way, you need a good pair of hiking boots, as they will provide support, as well as give a good grip for all the different terrain you may encounter. Hiking up mountains like in this picture, isn’t just slapping on a pair of sneakers and running up a trail, you first have to study the trail on a map so you don’t get lost along the trail, what would happen if the markers of the trail are not there, as they may have been knocked down during a storm or for whatever reason? You need an idea of how to navigate on the trail and a compass in the pack is a good tool for all Hikers.

We may hike any mountain simply because it is there? But for some we hike that mountain, to look deeply into what we see. Mountains have a way about them, that changes us as we trek to their summits. We start along the trail with one mind set or attitude about us, but as the trail dictates to us, we then change our demeanor, change the way we think of the mountain, look deeply into what we see, so we than can see all the true beauty of the mountain. There are no two mountains alike, each mountain is unique just as we are unique to each other and each mountain has a tale to tell, we just have to look deeply into what we see and not just climb the mountain because it is there.

The tale of the mountain begins at the beginning of the trail, with the different plant life, the different animals you may encounter, as they call the mountain their home, then along the trail and as it to changes from under our feet with the degree of steepness or maybe the width, with a good drop right next too us. plus as we get closer to the summit, now everything still changes, especially how all the trees are getting smaller as we climb. The vegetation OH!!! so delicate, becomes very different and if you step off the trail and kill, the vegetation it now dies and takes hundreds of years to grow back. Now as you reach the final push to the summit, you find the rest of the trek all rock with the trees as big as a small plant, you are now above tree line, leaving you susceptible to all the weather that the mountain endures, not too mention, you are out in the wide open with no cover to seek.  The mountain has many tales as you trek up it’s trails, with your feet feeling the heartbeat of the mountain with each step. In some ways the journey to the summit of the mountain, is similar to the journey of life, you walk a trail within both, you endure many changes along the trails, when you don’t respect the trail like life, now you have some crap to get through, but when you walk the trail in life the right way, it will reward you greatly, just like the reaching the summit of the mountain, with the great views, that wait for you to enjoy the peace and happiness, of a trail well blazed.

 

” The mountain is calling, you simply just look deeply into what you see, to truly understand what the mountain is telling”

” Hiking up a mountain is more than just physical exercise, it is true exercise for the mind, body and soul as well”

” Mountains will have an effect on all who trek them, that’s why there are many changes along the trail of the mountain”

” There are many rewards that come to us along this journey of life, but the reward of reaching the summit of any mountain, will take your breathe away with it’s beauty”

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Journey through life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

We choose our path we walk through this journey, sometimes the path is a bit rough and needs some work, sometimes along the path it becomes out of focus, there will be many obstacles to over come along the path as well, or quite simply………. The path may not look passable at first glance. No matter of how the path looks, we need to work hard so we can move forward, without going backwards along the path we choose, because when we move forward with our hard work, it will always give us a feeling of accomplishment, a feeling of pride and raise our self esteem to levels of we then feel great of ourselves, without being so sad or depressed, for the direction we are going along our path through this journey of life.

Like in this picture all our paths a little rough and it is all because some within this society, can not see clearly enough to continue forward by working hard, instead they simply are giving up by bringing much hatred to the rest of us, to make all our paths look harder than they really need to be. Those on the left being the Democratic party, are the ones that clearly can not see the true reality, they refuse to except President Donald Trump as the President of the United States and are doing all they can to get in his way of progress and get in the way of him delivering on his promises, to all those who voted for him. All these so called leaders are doing is quite simply………. not living up to their campaign promises that they promised to each citizen that voted them into their office for which they hold. The time is now for each member of the Democratic party to grow up, smell the fresh brewed coffee of reality and live up to all their promises of their campaigns, or simply step aside, let our President do his job that he promised all his voters, so we all can move forward with our hard work, while we leave the rest of you in our dust, as you fall backwards in your own little worlds.

No matter of how ugly the path looks, no matter of how rough the path looks, no matter of how impossible the climb along the path seems, with real hard work and determination, there is no path that can not be conquered, as we all move forward along the path and reach the summit of the path, then we all can feel the true feeling of accomplishment, see all the true beauty at the summit, making our hard work to get  there well worth it, then look even further down the path with so much pride, that no matter where the path turns from there, we will do so with gusto and strength, as our confidence will be so strong, that we will welcome any challenge that may come along the path we choose, so we than can move forward in peace and happiness, without any hatred like we see now, making this journey through life, a journey well traveled.

Just maybe we all should take to the mountains that are around and not just look at them from a far, but actually put on a pair of hiking boots, pack a backpack to put on your back with needed supplies, and take that trek that you think you can not do, yes it may be a bit rough at the beginning, but as the hike moves forward, as the hike moves upward to the summit of the mountain, you then change yourself, you begin to think more positive like, hey!!! This isn’t so bad, maybe I can reach the summit and before you know it, you are there seeing all the true beauty all around you. Being one with Nature and hiking a mountain to the top is more than just hiking to a summit, it can also be a life lesson that can help us all change for the better, because at the beginning we all will be a bit negative with our thoughts, then as the hike moves forward and upwards, we then change our way of thinking from negativity, to positivity and confidence. So instead of being so negative at our great President Donald Trump, give him a chance to do as he said, so we all can change for the better and reach for the summit of life along this journey, for which we walk our paths.

 

” Mountain climbing up any mountain may be a bit rough if you are not used to it no matter of who you are, but hard work and determination will help us all accomplish reaching the summit of the mountain”

” We all need to end all this hatred and negativity, so we all can be positive within peace and happiness”

” The path we choose may not always be smooth and easy, it takes hard work and determination to make that path as smooth as we can”

” A true mountaineer will struggle from time to time, but with hard work he achieves the summit of his journey no matter how difficult the path so he can keep moving forward”

 

 

 

 

 

God Bless America this 4th of July

See the source image

 

 

 

 

 

This statue of lady Liberty was a gift from France to the United States, but really how many of the younger generation know of this? Seems like within this Society and with the younger generation, all they want to do is change everything of what made this country great, I get that the past is the past and you can not change what happened in the past, but in order to move forward better and stronger, you need to look back in the past, see what we did wrong, so we than can fix what needs to be fixed to move forward in the future, better and stronger.

 

” You can not dwell in the past,  but you can glance back to move forward better stronger:

 

Oh! Lady Liberty how big and beautiful you look, as you watch over this land called the United States of America, you look so majestic and smart as you stand guard over this great land. The Statue of Liberty stands a top the Island of Ellis, just off the main land of New York. Those that want to become a ” Legal” immigrant of this great country, will take a short ride on a boat, so they not just see how powerful our Lady Liberty is, but to stand before her as they get sworn into being a Citizen of this great land…………. The very foundation of this great country was built by the hands of Immigrants as well as natural born Citizens, BUT!!! When you sneak into this country and steal everything away from the real Citizens, who have worked very hard for themselves and those around them on this great land, now you are labeled with the word ” Illegal” , which is a nice way of saying you are doing something wrong and need to be punished for your wrong doings. True there may be some who will not acknowledge the word ” Illegal”, and just might call others a “Racist”, simply because they speak the truth, well these are the types of people that just don’t get it and have lost all sense of reality, then force their beliefs and misconceptions on the rest of us.

We need to stop acting like little children fighting and bickering because we can’t get our own way, we need to get back to being a responsible Adult, who respects everything and everybody around them, so we all can then walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve. The way we are acting toward each other now is not of how, those of America’s past acted as they built the foundation of this great country, they would be rolling in their graves if they knew of all the crap and ugliness we are bringing to each other now, America was not built on stupidity as we are doing now, it was built on smarts and a lot of hard work, like the roll up your sleeves and get to work, type of hard work, it’s time to look back within history, so we can fix what we need to fix, then move forward better and stronger with each step of this journey.

So instead of just being a weekend warrior this 4th of July, or simply just showing up at a party for food and drinks and then watching fireworks at night, let’s remember first of the what the 4th truly means? Which is America’s birthday, just as each of us have a birthday, then let’s remember those who fought the good fight, so we than can celebrate with our cookouts, celebrate as we become a weekend warrior, or even celebrate as the fireworks light up the night sky, because those that fought the good fight, did so as we are now Free to do what and as we want to do. It is hard to see the true meaning of anything, when all we are doing is, fighting and bickering at each other and really over nothing, because we are just spitting words, instead of actually saying words, so let’s show more of our love and empathy that is deep within us all. then we all can be at peace, while we walk our paths of this journey in happiness always.

 

” America the beautiful is for all who walk their paths correctly without using the word of ” Illegal””

” The past will always be behind us, but it will always be there to keep us moving forward better and stronger”

” America will always be of Freedom, life, liberty and growth, it will never be of being illegal at anything within this great country”

 

 

 

 

The Children among us***without feeling the love within their hearts and souls

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

 

When we look deeply within our hearts and souls and within the true beauty of this stump, you can see without question, the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with the crown of thorns still upon his head. Now quite simply because we can not see things like this is, we have become so far removed from the time that Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us. that we now let the clouds of our judgments control completely of who we truly are.

When the day comes that we can totally see God within ourselves and when, the day comes we can truly feel the love of Jesus deep within our hearts and souls, only then will all the hate and the attacking of one another disappear from all of our paths throughout this journey of life. The hating we see today as well as all the ugliness, is not of who we truly are, this is only we the people of this society, being cold to one another and not sharing the love of Jesus within us, with each other along this journey of life.

We all hear of all the border talks of the United States of America and all the Immigrants who are trying to sneak in here Illegal, plus all the talks of the families being torn apart at the borders? The one key word we need to focus on, to see clearly of what is truly happening is, ” Illegal”. When you do something of which you shouldn’t and totally try to take advantage of others, you clearly can not see past the clouds of your judgments. This is not just happening at the borders of America, it has been and for a long time, been happening all around the globe, just that we the people along with those within the main stream media, have turned a blind eye to it, simply because it doesn’t fit into their agendas to chat about it. We need to totally look deeper into ourselves, look deeper into what is around us, so we can clear the clouds of our judgments and get back in touch with our true selves, to truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, then not just feel the love, but share the love and the empathy with all that is around us, so we all can walk our paths in peace and joy always. There is still time to fix all that is wrong within this society, but we the people have to want to fix it, or this journey will just get rougher with every step we take.

The biggest thing we need to look deeply into is, Why are the ones all over the globe, trying to jump from one border to another and doing so the ” Illegal” way? Plus why are we letting all the children get lost in the middle within the clouds of our judgments? These innocent children are being exploited, taken advantage of, being objectified and being made a victim of, simply because we the people are only thinking of our selves and not the welfare of our children and their future’s. The children didn’t ask for this, nor did they volunteer for this, they are being used as a pawn, so other’s can flood us with the drama of their agendas and also, so the weak can hide behind them, instead of facing true reality and being of truly who they are. A lot of these children are of a young age and an age of vulnerability, they really do not know the difference between right and wrong yet, plus they look up to us as role models and when we lead them into uncertainty and deceit, now they then form in their minds that this is how life is, this is how you survive in this cruel world, which then leads them further away from Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within their hearts and souls. Which then has them continue this uncertainty and deceit as they grow older along their paths of this journey through life.

 

” The power of Jesus Christ is within us all, within our hearts and souls, in the form of true love and the feeling of true empathy to share with each other”

” The warmth we feel deep within our hearts and souls is the true love of Jesus Christ within us all”

” Every country has borders and yes we can cross those borders for a better life, but only done the correct way, so we all can be at peace and joy always”

” To do something Illegal you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing”

 

 

 

 

 

Drain the Swamp of Corruption.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

The Swamp of corruption isn’t of any body of water that needs to be cleaned up, it is all the branches of the government within the capitol of………..Washington D. C. The swamp is usually not pretty, full of muck and who knows what lies deep within the swamp? The swamp in Washington D. C. is full of money hungry, back stabbing, hypocrites. They will say what we want to hear so they can enter into the swamp, then as they get settled within the swamp, will then do the complete opposite of what they said and totally operate for themselves, forgetting about the ones who voted them in, to their nice plush office.

The Candidate Donald Trump said he would ” drain the swamp”, unlike those who are already in the swamp, the now President Donald Trump is doing as he said and totally draining the swamp. While all the people in the swamp have their hand out for all the kick backs, President Trump doesn’t need the kick backs, as he already has made more than any kick back that could be given to him. President Trump is a business man first, who is learning on the job, of what a Politician is and so far is doing a pretty dam good job. The establishment of his party can not control him, which makes him very volatile to them and very unpredictable to them as well. President Trump is a very sincere guy, who shoots from the hip, he says what he means and does as he says, which in the eyes of a Politician……….. Is very hard for them to not just deal with, but to read as a person for what his next move will be, now yes President Trump is a bit rough around the edges, when it comes to the way he speaks, but this is exactly what you get, when you deal with a person who does not believe in Political Correction.

Political Correction in a lot of ways has made us all weak, made us all not able to handle any kind of truth anymore, afraid to talk to anybody as we don’t want to offend anybody as well, it has isolated us from this World full of people, which has made us all afraid of any kind of conflict and has forced us into a safe cocoon, so we won’t be hurt by anything. We don’t cry anymore cause we don’t feel real pain and hurt, so we don’t let the tears heal us, so we than can fix what we need to fix, to move forward better and stronger, through this journey of life. Within this Society we look at crying as a sign of weakness, but on the contrary, it is a way to heal us, so we can be stronger along our paths of this journey. As we walk our paths of this journey, we don’t have to be the way of Political Correction, if only we simply be who we truly are, showing the love and empathy that is deep within all our hearts and souls, then share the love with each other, instead of attacking each other within the world of Political Correction.

President Trump said he would drain the swamp of corruption within Washington D. C. He is totally doing just that and all those corrupt people are running scared, cause they are so afraid of being outed, not too mention they don’t want to lose the good thing they have had for so long. Those within Washington D. C. have no clue of how to handle President Trump, just as all the media agencies also have no clue how to deal with him either, which is why they create so much ” Fake news”, instead of bringing us the real and truthful news. Fake news is what completes the agendas of all the media’s, so they than can fill our world with unnecessary drama, which is how they make their money and live their exotic lifestyles, while the rest of us, rub together two nickels to get a dime, not too mention the trying to take down a seated President, simply because he wasn’t the one they endorsed.

The time is now for each of us within this Society to “86” this political correct world we are in, grow up and walk our paths of this journey correctly, so we all can be at peace and joy with each step we take. It is a lot easier to to walk this journey correctly, it is very hard to keep up with the political correction, as we have to work everyday at it. Jesus Christ showed us all just how too walk this journey, he even died for us all at the cross, while he showed his love for each of us as well, we to can walk as Jesus did if we want to, only that right now we are all blinded by the clouds of our judgments, with no clear view of where we are going.

 

” The swamp Creature we have made, so we than can be as corrupt as corrupt can be”

” The business man will say what he means, as the Politicization of being correct will only have us all be a hypocrite to all our words”

” The President of the United States has a 24/7 job and is plenty hard enough, without having to worry about this fake political correct society”

” The political correct world around us now, is what’s killing the peace and joy from all our lives, only to bring the drama, hate and ugliness”
