The dark of the light, with the light of the dark

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Seriously think about this!!! We of this Society have wandered away from any kind of thinking about anything, we say we think about things whatever those things are? But because of the no more thinking part, we have lost all sense of any of the true common sense that is within all of us. We have become like puppets to an almighty puppeteer, when the master speaks we listen and when the master pulls our strings, we go in the direction of the pull, without any kind of a resistance. Nobody wants to lead, as all we want to do is follow, no matter of the direction we may go. We need more trail Blazer’s like those societies of the past, without them then all our futures look bleek and boring, with no excitement on the horizon.

In order to truly see the light, there is darkness to pass through, just as the light will never be constant,    for there is always a darkness that passes by, so we can come to appreciate all things, without focusing too much on one thing, which will help us become more well rounded as we walk our paths, through this ever changing journey through life. Through the light there will always be darkness, as change will never leave us, which makes it that much more important to, being able to adapt to everything equally and without giving up, so we never become a puppet and just follow, so instead we than become the trail blazer, like Jesus did when he came and walked his journey here with us.

It takes darkness so we can truly see the light, so we than can truly appreciate all that we do with every step of this journey. Even like within this picture, you have a dead tree trunk, with a flower growing out of it? There is beauty all around us, you just have to truly look deeply in everything, without simply glancing or skimming over the top and becoming superficial of everything around you. Our leader’s today within the walls of Washington DC and while they get so wrapped up within the ” Washington Power Game”, have totally lost sight of true reality and have become a puppet to their own cause, without thinking of the bigger picture, or even becoming a trailblazer, to truly lead as they should be doing, when they signed up, for the office they hold.

True these flowers may not be the most fragrant, or the most picturesque?  But these flowers in their environment and where they are, makes everything around them shine in the light, brighter then anything, this is the sign of a true leader, someone who gets the job done, someone who never looks for recognition, someone who shines no matter of how dark the light may be, someone no matter of the change, adapts to the change and moves forward better and stronger, so they can keep the brightness of the light, no matter of how dark the darkness may become. These leader’s are out there, just that within today’s society and all the darkness with all the ugliness, makes for it very hard to truly see anything, which shows of how important it is, to let the light shine as bright as it can, so the darkness doesn’t seem as dark as it truly is. The light of the dark is always there, so to truly see the light, you need to look past the dark and not focus on the dark, as to helping the darkness never look as dark as it truly is.

 

” Where there is darkness there will be light, just like with faith there will always be hope”

” Cut the strings of the puppet, to truly become the person that you truly are”

” there is always true beauty all around us, we just have to see past the dark to truly see the light”

” Everything we may see has a beauty of it’s own, just as with the darkness, there will always be the light”

Okay time for my little buddy to make another appearance once again. For those who don’t know, this is little eight year old Martin Richards, he was taken from this Earth by two deranged Individuals, that decided to bring tragedy to the Boston marathon, as they placed two bombs, with one at the finish line, right beside this innocent young boy. This sign he holds are his words and shows just how special this young man was, with what could of been a great life cut short.

Within this society we all walk our journey’s, there is way too much ugliness, drama and hatred of each other. A lot of it simply comes from the way we not only treat each other, but the way we speak to each other, just drive down the road and you will hear a whole different vocabulary than what you care to listen to. Some will be nice to your face when you are around, then when you turn your back, forget the niceness and out comes the slander.  people of today want nothing more than to see others fail, make mistakes, or even fall and become hurt………… as they totally forget that they themselves have gone through the same, just that they don’t want to admit to their flaws at all.

Look no further than our so called leaders within the walls of Washington DC. They not only back stab each other, but they back stab the ones who put them into office as well. Now that we actually have a President that is working for the people that put him there, those on the left will do and say anything, to denounce everything he does, the people that the President tries to put around himself, so he can do an even better job than what he is doing now, have been scrutinized, ridiculed and have had lies put in their mouths, by those on the left, who will stop at nothing, to bring down a seated President. Those on the left won’t even call our President a President, simply because they are so far in denial. that they have lost all sense of what true reality is. We can’t even get a Supreme Court Justice confirmed, without those on the left, doing anything they can, to stall and delay, the conformation, only to better suit themselves, instead of the good of this great country of America. In Washington DC it is all about playing the game of power, instead of actually doing the job, for which they were voted in to do. It is time for each of us Americans, at the mid term elections, to really send a message to those on the left and anyone else, that is so far in denial, of what true reality is, as they are now on the outside looking in.

We of this society need to do a better job at showing true empathy and love of each other, before it becomes lost forever? Or even worse, more of us Humans become victims of a senseless tragedy, as did Martin Richards, on such an ugly day. It is just sad that we rally together when we truly need to heal and become better along this journey, but yet 95% of the time, we don’t even acknowledge each other, let alone show any kind of love or empathy, which happens to be feelings, deep within each of us. It all starts at the top, with our so called Leaders, these are the ones that need to not only work together, but coincide in their environment, so as to not only make this country better and stronger, but make the lives of all Americans better and stronger as well. Plus all those that are looked at as role models within the sporting world, they need to simply shut up and play the sport, that they get big dollars to play, instead of opening their mouths and spewing their hateful opinions, of an elected official, for whom they don’t care for and even further, when you use the sport you play and receive big dollars playing, for a platform to protest, I challenge you to take some of your big dollars to the community you live and put your money where your mouth, so you can make a difference, instead of being nothing but a pain in the Ass, with your uncalled for protests, taking away from the sport you play.

 

” No more hurting people……………peace”

*** Martin Richards***

” The easiest thing we do but we make it the hardest, is quite simply the way we chat with one another”

” Instead of looking at one another with hateful eyes, let’s try looking and seeing the good within all those around us”

” Good will always win over evil, just that we as a society are too consumed with all the evil around us, that we can’t see clearly through the clouds of our judgments”

 

 

 

 

 

The Power for Life

” The spirit of truth……….dwells with you and will be in you”

John 14:17

 

Throughout this journey of life for which we all walk, there are many ways to empower us, there are many things that come to us, to help us become better and stronger with each step, but the one thing that is within us all, to help us walk this journey correctly, is the spirit of truth that God gave us and his son Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his journey here with us.

We take so for granted this thing called ” Truth” that is within us all, sometimes we can’t handle the truth, simply because certain things that have scarred us so, or we try to put ourselves above all other’s, so we twist the truth in a way that, it fits into our agenda, so we than can step on one another, without letting the feelings of guilt, keep us from moving forward along this journey of life. God didn’t create us to attack, make fun of, or step on each other just to get ahead of each other, he created each of us, to love one another, as we would love ourselves. Truth is that thing within us all, that we will never see, but yet we will always feel deep inside the warmth, of God’s love within our hearts, so we than can share that love with each other, as we all move forward better and stronger.

There is this thing within our Government of today and it is called the              ”  Washington Power game”, This power has nothing to do with any truth, as it is all about power and control over everything around them. This power game has no true feelings and it will hurt all that comes in contact with it. This power game comes from we as humans who walk this journey and we as humans, simply do not have to follow and play this game, that brings so much hurt and ugliness to this broken society of today. When we don’t get caught up within this game and truly be of who we really are, will only help us become stronger throughout this journey, not too mention truly feeling God’s love within our hearts and then sharing that love with each other.

This Washington power game is played by all, within the walls of Washington D. C. These Individuals and because they have lost that true feeling of love within their hearts and have lost all true reality deep within their souls, so because they are so lost, they than try to push all the crap and ugliness, on the rest of us, as they truly can not see the plain truth, that is right there in front of them. They have become so lost within their reality, they have lost everything that true reality is. They make up stories with their fake truths, then expect the rest of us, to buy into their fake stories? While they keep their agendas and their so called power game going forward, all the while we all within reach of their crap, hurt real pain, while we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

 

” The power for life, has nothing to do with taking the power and control over everything that may be around”

” The Washington Power game that our Law makers strive so for, does nothing but, disrupt all the lives for who walks this journey”

 

 

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

Now if we all took the Robin Williams approach to walking our paths through this journey of life, then just maybe this society would be a lot better for all? This was a man…… Who was hurting real pain deep inside himself, but yet had decided to through his humor, make the rest of us forget about the pain within us all. Robin Williams was blessed with the talent to truly entertain us all, whether it was comedy, or a movie like ” Dead Poet’s Society”, which for me was the best of all his movies. Robin Williams was truly sent from God for the benefit of us all, as he entertained us ( while he himself hurt deeply inside), so the rest of us can find relief from our pain, even if it was for a short time.

It is so sad that, we of this Society will go to any length to bring so much pain toward each other, that we as an Individual have lost totally the true feelings of, love and empathy that is within us all. When one fails at attempting something they are not used to, others will make fun of those failures instead of praising him to keep trying, which leads to many that will always quit, or never even try to make an attempt at something new. Then there are those that are very talented to play a sport, as they then turn professional and receive huge money to simply play a game.

Life within the National Football League is so screwed up today, simply because………. One has started a new thing of, taking a knee in protest, while disrespecting not just a song, not just a flag, but those who have died defending that flag, so the rest of us can live peacefully and as free as we want to be, doing whatever we want to do. Now with that said………. Through the whole off season of the NFL, there was not one Knee taker doing anything about whatever they were protesting to begin with, but now as the first pre-season  game has been played, they start back at taking a knee? The Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys said it best, ” Football is not the time or the place for anything, other than playing the game of Football”, I agree totally and now have much more respect for Zak Prescott.

Most of us all stop what we normally do on Sunday’s, to watch the game of football the game, not the game of football being a politically ridden agenda, of whatever the flavor of the week may be for their protests. Let’s look deeper and put it a little different, we all go to our jobs each day, we work for a corporate company correct? What would happen to us if we decide to stand on a soap box and bring protest to our jobs? Correct……… We would be fired for not doing our job as we should be doing, well an NFL team is owned by an owner and that Owner buys the team for one thing and that is to make good on his investment, so in essence the NFL team is a corporate company, that pays it’s employee’s to do a job and not stand on, or take a knee in protest. Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy winning the game, football is not a game of protest and nor do the fans watch the game just for the protest, we watch to see a great game of different strategies, being played by not just an employee of a team, but a well trained and talented athlete, that’s true focus is on winning the game and nothing more, which to me there is one more focused on winning a game, each and every game, he has proved it more than once and that Athlete is, the quarterback of the New England Patriots………. Tom Brady.

There may be some that call Tom Brady a ” cheater”? Really!!! Then I shall call you fat, dumb and stupid, simply because you are too lazy to put in the work each and every day as Tom Brady does, to be the best at whatever it is you do. Whether off season or in season, Tom works very hard every day, so he can be as good as he needs to be and his winning ways proves just that. My challenge to all those who feel the need to protest within the NFL is, try working as hard as Tom Brady, focus 100% on the game of football, so just maybe you can be a true Champion, as the G.O.A.T of the NFL…….. Tom Brady already is, forget about the outside crap ( only to be done on your time…not company time), So not just you and your team play a great game of football, but we the fans, can watch a very well played, with very different strategies to winning a well played game, by well trained and talented athlete’s, each and every week of the season.

 

” Any professional sport is not about any kind of outside protest, as it is about showcasing the God given talent you have been given”

” You are an employee of the owner of the team you play for, there is a code of conduct for each corporate company you work for”

” Any success or failure we may have will be in our past, we can learn from the past, but never shall we dwell in the past as it only brings more pain to us all”

” We all have a God given talent and it is up to each of us to find that talent”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working hard and moving up

” The best things in life are free, the air we breathe, the stars at night, the wonder of Human love, but the greatest gift of all is our salvation, purchased for us by Jesus Christ………….. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift”

2 Corinthians 9:15

 

Within today’s society of fast pace and full of technology that has made life easy for us all, we have also become lazy with our work ethnic, where we want the world to cater to us, but we do not want to work for what we want? Just like when we take a trek up a mountain, there comes work to get to our destination of the summit at the top of the mountain, yes you have to climb up hill and a lot of the up hills are very steep, as you climb quickly in elevation to get to the summit. Now to achieve the reward of the beauty and the great scenery at the summit, you first have to put in the work of climbing up a trail for which you trek.

Now I am not saying that all of us have lost that hard work ethnic that has made this country great, just that it is becoming instinct and needs to be fixed before it becomes lost for ever.  A good work ethnic is one that, when you start a job within a company, you are not afraid or not ashamed to start at the ground floor and work hard while you climb the ladder of success within that company, as you climb the ladder within that company, also comes the great rewards of pay raises, that simply shows you that, you are somebody of which others do notice your hard work ethnic within the job you do, not too mention of what it does to your spiritual being deep within your soul. This spiritual being is part of our DNA, our make up of who we truly are, this is what makes our self esteem grow, as we then feel good of ourselves, moving forward along the path we chose, through this journey of life.

We all want the toys of life, the material things for which we consume along this journey, but being lazy and not working a job, because we simply don’t like the job, will never have us achieve any success, so we than can buy whatever material item we wish to buy. Bouncing around from job to job, is no way to develop a good strong work ethnic, never mind of not only building a great foundation in your work life.

With a great work life and the starting on the ground floor of your life, is what completes us as a Human Being, we respect all the things around us more as we grow into this world, that little child within us grows better and stronger as well, which then has us on the exterior growing with a strong self esteem. Never think of your job as “work”, only work hard at what you do, so you than can move up the rungs of the ladder known as success, as you not only feel great inside, but it shows on the outside with your true actions, of who you truly are.

Starting out on the ground floor of life, or within our jobs is not a bad thing, nor should it be frowned upon, as it only builds strength, character and helps us grow inside and out, with that little child that is within us all, growing stronger and healthy year after year, as we walk this journey through life. In this country we have what we call the ” American Dream”? This is nothing more than all of us working very hard to achieve great success and when we achieve this great success, we then not only build a strong foundation and grow strong roots, we then accumulate the material things within this society. now sometimes with success we forget of who we truly are? we forget of that little child deep within our souls, which not only leads us to a little child with no true direction,  it will also lead us into a lifestyle of negativity, weakness and laziness, which then makes us vulnerable to all the ugliness we see around us today. With strength come happiness and with happiness comes peace for us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With strength comes happiness and with happiness comes peace”

” We all want great success along this journey, we also have to work hard to achieve this peace and happiness”

” Work ethnic is within each of us, just that some have refused to unleash the hard work part of the ethnic”

” Work ethnic helps us grow stronger while we greatly respect all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The clouds of our judgments………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Help me Lord not to allow the clouds of the day prevent me from seeking your face, may I like Moses be bold enough to approach the thick darkness if that is where your presence is found”

Exodus: 20:21

 

As we all walk our paths through this journey of life, each of us will experience these clouds, with some being slight and others being dark and frightening. No matter of what kind of clouds you face, with the total belief in Jesus Christ, we can overcome anything, while we ask Jesus to help us look behind the clouds to truly see his glory and to see what he has planned for each of us moving forward, along our paths of this journey.

The clouds of our judgments will have us do many things that aren’t of who we truly are, they will have us wander down a path with no true direction, which makes it that much more important to trust and believe in Jesus Christ, so we can ask him for guidance, when we wander off track, from the dark thick clouds of our judgments. There are many among us that, are so lost within their clouds, they try to move forward bringing much unwanted ugliness and hate to us all, they try to put themselves above the rest of us, like they are the only thing and think in their own minds as if they are more powerful then us all as well. There is no one more powerful than each other, as we are all equal to each other and unique to each other as well.

This journey may have many paths for us to choose from, but when we are surrounded by the dark thick clouds of our judgments, it makes for a difficult decision to make the correct decision of the right path for us to walk. When we make the wrong decisions along the path we choose, this could be what brings us much hatred and ugliness, then as we try to move forward within that decision, it then snow balls and spreads among the rest of us, as we to try to make the right decisions to the path we follow, within this journey of life.

Through all the corruption and the divisiveness among us, this journey of life for us all  within this society, has become so broken, it is going to take a lot of hard work from all of us, to fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward within the peace and happiness, we all so deserve. We have this new generation growing up among us right, that is in dire need of some good direction, before it becomes too late and the direction they are taking, will bring much more hatred and ugliness to the rest of us. This new generation also known as the Millennial generation, they are growing up with a lack of respect for anything around them, they think they are smarter then all that is around them? With their ideologies so whacked, they seriously make no sense at all. This generation wants to have children of their own, BUT!!!  They do not want to recognize the gender of the children they have and call them ” Theyby’s”?  Seriously!!! Let’s get real here, all this is going to do, is create a whole generation of Victims, which is going to break this society more so, than it is already.

Being a Victim of anything only brings much pain and hurt to us all, not just of who is actually the Victim? The pain and hurt from being a Victim, leaves a scar deep within your soul, which can take a lifetime to correct. We have all been a Victim of something or someone at some point along the path we walk, we all have that skeleton hidden deep within our souls, that we are hiding from each other, because the shame of being a Victim has hurt us badly. The shame alone can and will force us to be of someone we truly are not, simply because the pain is so intense, that we will do anything to rid ourselves from it. It is no picnic to be a Victim of anything, so why then do we want to allow a whole generation, to bring even more Victims to us all?

We all also have a little child deep within our souls and when this child grows correctly, we to then grow correctly within the society we enter. When we on the outside become a Victim of whatever and then become shamed from it, that little child within us also becomes shamed and hurts worse then we ourselves, which leaves that child to not grow properly within us and when that child does not grow, then we to on the outside do not grow as we should in a healthy way. There is so much more to this journey of life, that if we truly do not understand properly this journey, then whatever path you choose, will become rough with many bumps, to bruise and bring real pain and hurt to each of us, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

The dark frightening clouds of our judgments will clear, just that we need to truly understand why we become clouded with our judgments, so we than can clear them up, bringing, bright, clear skies around us, which will also bring much peace and happiness to us as well. When the clouds of our judgments are light or clear, we then can make better and more informed decisions, on whatever we are deciding over? Which then makes the path for which we choose, much more smooth with less bumps to bring us pain and hurt, plus it gives that little child within us all, a chance to truly grow healthy, so we all can grow healthy, as the peace of Jesus Christ consumes us so much, that there will be much love and happiness for us all, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The clouds of our judgments can be dark and frightening, or they can be light with a clearing, but they don’t have to bring us much pain and hurt that shames us all”

” Victims will becomes shamed full of real pain and hurt, why then do we need to create more victims within this society”

” We all have a little child deep within us, why would we want to bring any pain to that child”

” We protect our children within this society, so why not protect that child deep within our souls as well”

” We all hurt in our own way, so let’s better understand the hurt, to move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life”
