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”

 

 

 

 

Let’s clear the deadwood and end Bullying now,

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

There is so much more to walking the path we chose through this journey of life. We all at some point within our lives have been Bullied or have Bullied another, the thing we never talk about especially those who have been Bullied is, the fact that when you are being Bullied, you are shamed into thinking maybe something is wrong with me? Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all, when we are shamed we tend to forget who we truly are, for which we then put forth a fake self, just to try to fit in and be accepted. When we are shamed by another and bullied to the point we try to avoid others, we then become as lonely as this tree with all the deadwood around it.

There is so much true beauty around us as well as the beauty within each of us, that when we are Bullied and are shamed from the Bullying, we never get a chance to truly see any of the beauty around us or within. We walk our paths of this journey for we ourselves, it’s not about making others happy, it is more about being truly happy deep within ourselves, so we than can be happy on the outside, as we take this happiness to all that is around us. What a Bully never see’s when he is in the process of controlling what’s around him is, he never see’s any beauty either as to him there is nothing but power and control, plus the fact that a Bully has lost the feelings deep within himself like, the feelings of empathy or compassion, because if he felt either of these, he would never be a Bully anymore, to terrorize anyone of us.

The effects from a Bully can and will last a lifetime, they will leave scars and these scars can’t be seen, as they are deep within us, whether we want to admit to them or not. The scars from being shamed by a Bully are not just a scar that, with a band aid they heal and disappear from sight, these scars are emotional and come with great pain and hurt. The pain and hurt coming from shame, will have us become someone we truly are not, we ourselves won’t even recognize ourselves as we hide deep within ourselves and put forth this fake self, to try to protect ourselves from further pain and hurt, we will rationalize away anything coming from the shame as well as , going deep into denial, which then has us not even accepting our actions moving forward.

Bullying is nothing more than having the power and control over someone/something, it is also nothing more than using fear to have that power and control, a Bully is also a Coward as they can not even accept their own issues and then, they take it out on someone around them. A Bully can be anybody and you could be standing next to one now? The true way too stop a Bully is look them in the eye , show no fear as they try to make you fear, show them that they can not hurt or control you, as they then will cower away, like the true Coward for whom they are. There are Bully’s everywhere whether Domestic or abroad, we all have to face one sooner or later, now through Social media there are even the worse kind of Bully, known as the Cyber Bully, to which we never face, because they are a true coward that hides behind their device, these individuals can’t face any issues, let alone their own issues and hiding behind a device proves that, the problem is, they will do and say anything to have us become a slave to their words, so they than can ( in their own minds) seem as powerful to anything along this journey, but in realty they are the weakest link to this Society and need to be treated as such, so they will disappear from all our paths of this journey through life.

 

” A Bully is nothing more than a Coward that try’s to inflict fear on all that is around them”

” With a Bully it is all about power and control, when we don’t give them that, then they disappear like the tumble weeds in the wind of the desert”

” Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all and when we become shamed we then lose sight of who we truly are”

” Cyber Bullying is the new way of a Coward to try to control each of us, time we nip it in the bud and end their reign of terror”

” We all want the power and control, but when we forget of truly who we are, then our actions become inaction’s throughout our paths of this journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Anniversary of Good versus Evil

 

 

 

” May the sun always shine on the Boston Marathon, the sun showing good with no evil present”

 

Despite the weather, this day of the Boston marathon will always be more than just a competition of running. Five years ago two Brothers decided to bring hatred and evil to all that were at the marathon, but quickly found out that, no matter how planned out you thought you were, the good will always win out over any evil. You hear more about the different charities a lot of runners are running for, yes all the runners start out with the same goal and that is to cross the now famous finish line of the Boston Marathon. Some may not finish as their bodies become overwhelmed with exhaustion, some may feel the true warmth of God’s love no matter how cold the weather, when a fellow runner stops and either helps or carries them across the finish line and yes, the true competition may be in the front of the pack, with the ones who want to finish first, but the real competition starts from the middle to the end of the pack, with all the love and empathy showed of each other, not too mention all the charities being run for.

Five years ago there was very ugly tragedy at the finish line of the Boston Marathon but through that tragedy, there has been so much good that has come from it, that it just fills your heart with the warmth of God’s love and willing to share that love with each other. We the people need so badly to realize that, we don’t need evil to find the love, simply because the love is within us all and all we need to do is, just reach down deep within ourselves and truly feel the warmth of the love, then share it with our good and thoughtful actions, instead of letting evil turn us into someone we truly are not.

With the ones who perished five years ago at the marathon, especially one eight year old boy named Martin Richards, who was full of life and with his sign that read, ” no more hurting people…………. Peace” we will never find out, of just how much good could of come from this young innocent boy? Those who perished and those who survived the terrible tragedy, are now victims from the terrible day and that will never change throughout their lives, they can either let the victimization stew within their thoughts throughout the rest of their journey’s, or they can move forwarded better and stronger, by who they truly are from such a terrible tragedy, showing nothing but good and a smile everyday, as they walk their paths throughout this journey of life.

All versions of the media want nothing more than to hold onto all the ugliness and the hatred, as this is what makes them money and keep s them creating all the drama around us, simply because it is their agenda and they don’t want to waiver from it, what the media tends to forget is, they are not as powerful as they think? The real power belongs to us the people, as we are the ones that can turn them off and ignore all that they are about. The problem now is, we have forgotten how to turn them off and we have become too addicted to all the drama around us today. Only if we get back to truly of who we are, then and only then, will we the people not only control who we are, but we then will take back control, of what the media has taken from us, with all their agendas and their fake news/ drama. Let’s get back to looking at events like the Boston marathon with the eyes of good, so then there will be no room at the Inn for any evil of any kind,

It’s too bad that we within this Society think that we need tragedies to see any good, we also make fun of others pains, just to forget our own pain, it doesn’t have to be this way, only if we had more faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, if only we made more trips to the house of God, then just maybe all the good will flow from each of us, with no sight of any evil anywhere within our futures. Our destiny’s are not about any evil, our true destiny’s starts within ourselves, as we truly feel the love of God within us and as that love warms us, then we can share that love with each other, instead of showing hatred or attacking one another with much ugliness. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all start out the same at the beginning, as well as finish the journey the same as well, but what lies within the middle of the journey, lies completely within ourselves and the actions we take and bring to each other. The good versus evil talk lies completely within ourselves and until we get over ourselves and realize this, then we will always have evil to get around, on all our paths of this journey.

 

” The good will always win out over evil, we just have to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in Jesus Christ”

” When you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see the good with no evil in sight”

” Five years since the terrible tragedy at the Boston marathon, shows just how good always wins over any evil”

” it’s the media that keeps the drama of the tragedies alive with their agendas, time to see clearly through the drama at the reality of our paths through the journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The road wasn’t always paved

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, in the beginning of Mankind the roads were never paved, that came later as we evolved over time. Now within this Society we all live in, so much has changed since the time back in the beginning, so much change for the better, as well as so much change that…………… well let’s just say has made us worse in a lot of ways.

” Change is good when done correctly, change can be bad when we don’t truly understand”

Societies of our past may seem like it was a simpler life? What we of this Society always forget is, they were busy trying to make it better for us all today, only because we of today think, we are the best and brightest of all Societies. Every Society has had their challenges, but unless we respect those of the past, we will forever be lost within the clouds of our judgments.  We of this Society are so lost within the clouds, we can not see clearly enough, to walk our paths without tripping up on the bumps along the path. A lot of times we take action on something, without thinking through the ramifications of those actions, with all the technology we have today and yet, we can all be so dumb at the same time? In a lot of ways, technology has made us all fat, dumb and lazy.

Then there is thing called Political Correction, which now has us all fearing the ” I am offended” dilemma we are in today. If you can’t handle the truth, then stay home in the backyard under that rock which you crawled out from under. We say so many untruths today, that we totally have no idea between fiction or truth anymore, we hide behind our technology while we are on our social media, but really how social is this media, that we hide behind our technology on? Because we are on this so called social media, we then are not outside being social with each other anymore, instead we do nothing but stab each other in the back and create this thing called hate we see around us today. This journey through life was never about the hate and ugliness we see today, this is on us the people of this Society.

The roads never start out being paved and smooth, we are the ones that do the paving and make them smooth, but lately in this Society all the paved roads have become broken and riddled with cracks? As we all have become so lazy, all the infrastructure around us that Societies of the past have built for us, has become run down and broken and time to be rebuilt, the problem then lies with we the people being stuck to our so called ” social media”. Video games and how they have evolved over time and how they have become so addicting to so many in this Society, they to like our social media have torn us away from each other and totally have us glued behind our technology. It is time we get back to socializing face to face once again, time we stop being so negative of everything around us, it is time we share the love within us with each other, so we than can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and happiness we all so deserve and until we do this, the roads will become worse, with more cracks and bumps to trip us up.

 

” The roads were never paved and smooth as we ourselves had to get out and do the paving to make them smooth”

” Technology is good when it is used to make us better and stronger moving forward, but it is bad when it makes us fat, dumb and lazy”

” How social is social media when all it does is, have us hide behind it instead of actually being face to face with each other”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hidden trail……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The Hidden trail within Nature is only hidden if you don’t go out and explore what is around you. As you walk along trails like this, you just don’t know what lurks in your path? The trail is hidden deep within the woods and as you venture out on one trail, you just may come across many more like it, along your journey within Nature.

The wooden trail deep within the woods may scare some to not walking it, as they may not want to become lost in a place they are not familiar with, but that is part of the fun and having a good sense of direction and a knack of looking toward the sky and knowing where to go, as the position of the sun sets your course, this is what’s so intriguing about these kinds of trails, which then when you make it back to your camp site, now you have a sense of accomplishment that makes you feel good about yourself.

While walking along these trails you are within the homes of many animal life and plant life, to see some of these animals and plants you normally do not see, this is the exciting part of the trail, it makes for an interesting walk that has you looking deeply into what you see. Unlike our normal run of the mill walks within our neighborhoods, or maybe a lunch walk at work, it is awesome to get out and explore, just to see things you normally would never see. The biggest problem with this Society is, we don’t get away from our daily grind enough, so we can truly unwind and relax away the stress of the grind, instead we let the grind dictate our actions, which in a lot of cases, has us becoming someone we truly are not.

A nice walk within Nature and along the beauty of a hidden trail, in a lot of ways is better than the therapy you may pay for, as it is a natural type of therapy that soothes the soul and helps you breathe in fresh quality air, now don’t get me wrong it is nice to have someone to talk with to unload some of the daily grind, but it is also good to get out and explore things you normally would never explore, which then has you see what true beauty is and being one with Nature, now you can actually feel the stress of the daily grind, just lift out of your body, leaving you feeling lighter and more relaxed.

The hidden trail may not be that hidden in reality, but to you it is hidden, as it is the first time you have walked this trail, leaving you with a good feeling of accomplishment. Plus the setting up of a camp site, giving you a place to sleep within Nature as well as cook a meal over the open fire and the getting away from the daily grind for a short time, not only does this make you lose the time of day, now you become totally relaxed with the worries of the grind melting away from your brain, leaving you even more relaxed and a feeling like you will never feel, when you are within the daily grind and feeling like a robot that doesn’t stop. There is more to this journey of life than the nine to five daily grind, you just have to go out and find that trail, find that camp site, so you than can be truly of who you are, let the stress leave your body, so you than can be totally relaxed to enjoy your path through this journey of life.

 

” The hidden trail is not so hidden while you walk within it and explore all that is around you”

” A walk within nature is good for the soul and helps you unwind from the daily grind of the nine to fives”

” Go out and explore something new, as you never know what you may see or find, which will help you totally relax and truly be of who you are”

” The beauty of Nature is a great way to find that free therapy, to help you unload the stress to feel lighter and relaxed”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Journey within the Journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

There are many journies within this journey through life, the problem within this society of today is, we let all the ugliness consume us so much that, we really never get a chance to truly explore all the journey’s, which then keeps us locked within our own little worlds, as we think this will keep us safe from all the pain and hurt? True it may keep us some what safe, but not from all, this will only make us more isolated and not able to properly interact with each other. You can clearly see by all the shootings and bombings out there, that there are some who clearly can’t see through the clouds of their judgments, because they have become so isolated within themselves, that they have lost their ability to love and show empathy, for anything/anybody around them.

The latest of this guy putting bombs in packages and the fact through an ongoing investigation, is that he was frustrated with his life? Really!!! And nobody around him saw the red flags popping up? There are always red flags for any kind of behavior we may or may not make, just that we choose to ignore these flags, as we think it will keep us safer? The only way we can be truly safe is, acknowledge the red flags, get the proper help for ourselves or whom ever shows the flags, then we can properly fix what we need to fix, as we than can move forward, throughout any journey within this journey of life.

There are many journey’s within our journey of life, we have the journey throughout our chosen careers, then the journey of where we vacation, the simple daily journey we take to and from our careers etc……. through these many journey’s there is a lot of ugliness that may cross our paths, it then becomes about how we deal with the ugliness, that then has us truly being of who we are, or becoming someone for who we are not? It is really not of how we avoid the ugliness, but how we fix the ugliness, to minimize it’s effects for the now and the later, so we all can enjoy these many journey’s within this journey of life.

We all have our places we go to re-energize, clear our minds, to totally relax our minds, body and souls. For me it is the time I spend within nature, whether canoeing like in this picture, hiking a mountain to reach the summit, camping within the wilderness away from the daily grind, or maybe just a simple nature walk? This is how I find true peace and escape from the ugliness that consumes us in our daily grind. The time we do spend in the daily grind and to not let it consume us so, maybe take up a kind of activity, like maybe bowling in a league? This gives you the sense of competition, while it keeps you focused enough to make good shots and beat who you are competing against. There are many ways to escape the ugliness around you, instead of letting it consume you and turn you into someone you truly are not.

When we walk our paths through this journey and we let any kind of ugliness consume us, this is a huge red flag that needs to be addressed. There is nothing that is worth we ourselves, losing a big part of who we are. When we take any action at all along our paths, we first should think through that action and if it involves bringing harm to anybody around us, this is another red flag that needs to be addressed. We all have had some red flags in our lives, the problem then lies with the way we address the flags, fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward better and stronger, within peace and happiness, through whatever path we choose, along this journey through life.

 

” The journey within the journey is a way for us to unwind, re-energize, clear our minds, to walk in peace and happiness always”

” Red flags are the signs sent from Jesus for us to fix what we need to fix, as we move forward in peace and happiness”

” Never let any ugliness consume you, as it will only destroy you from the inside out”

” When there is a red flag then throw in a white flag, to surrender and fix what you need to fix”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peace for the World…….Peace within the World

1398913762364

 

 

With another Lenten journey upon us, time for my little friend……… Martin Richards, to once again make an appearance. ” No more hurting people………Peace”, this is a great quote by an eight year old boy, that was taken from our Society way too soon and in a way at the Boston Marathon bombing, that was totally an act of two Sick Demented Cowards.

Really!!! Do we need this amount of hatred that is around us today? We all tend to forget that, hatred is learned and takes great amounts of work to keep it going, while Love is deep within the hearts and souls of us all and really needs no work at all to spread among us all. School shootings, ISIS, the fact that we are way too negative of each other and now more recently, placing bombs in packages, like what is happening in Texas right now. COME ON PEOPLE!!! TIME TO WAKE UP!!! Before we ourselves destroy each other and this planet Earth, becomes nothing but desert land with nothing around.

We all hurt real pain in many ways and at different times within our lives, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes the hurt is brought on by we ourselves and sometimes by others, who bring us this pain, just to hide deeply their pain and hurt. The only way to truly fix ourselves of our pain and hurt is to, address it, keep asking ourselves why over and over, til we actually get a truthful answer, but even more so, we totally need to simply accept our faults, accept responsibility for our actions and truly, accept of who we are, so we than can get back in touch with our true inner feelings of, Empathy and Love.

Empathy and Love are within the hearts and souls of us all, with the pain and hurt that comes to us, we then have the tendency to bury very deeply these two feelings, like they are not even there? Then as we do this, we learn from others around us, of how to hate and be very negative of each other, We are so afraid of what others will think of us, that we then become someone for who we truly are not. God did not creates us to be hateful or attack one another, this is on each of us as people, who walk a path through this journey of life. Responsibility of our actions goes a long way as we walk our paths and when we are responsible, we than can earn each others respect, which will further us in, walking this journey in the peace and happiness, that God envisioned, when he created us all.

It is totally okay for us to cry when we hurt with real pain, just as it is totally okay for us to, reach out when we need a helping hand, this is what helps us fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward and not backwards throughout this journey.  There is a great quote from the movie Forest Gump, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know of what you’ll get”, So is this journey through life like the box of chocolates, as there are many paths to travel through the journey, you never know of what is waiting around each corner, we just have to stay true to ourselves, truly feel the love and empathy within our hearts and souls, so we than can move forward better and stronger, as the peace and happiness surrounds us, with no sign of any hatred. Then we can be in true peace, as God envisioned and Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his path with us, though this journey of life.

 

” Peace on Earth will eliminate and unlearn all the hate we have learned”

” The love along this Lenten journey, is our true love deep within our hearts and souls”

” Hate is learned and love is within each of us, keep saying it to ourselves, so we can truly feel the love within us”

” Pain and hurt will come to each of us at sometime, we just have to learn how to address and fix it to be better and stronger”
