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”

 

 

 

 

 

God Bless America this 4th of July

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 Road less traveled

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The road less traveled or maybe the lonely road? Either way it is a road with zero traffic and zero drama within this journey through life. The road in this picture is as rural as rural can get, where the biggest thing to worry about is, watching out for the wild life, that may come to the road to cross to the other side. Where as all the roads in the cities you have to worry more on, watching the other driver, to not slam into you. Driving these lonely roads will have you truly see the true beauty around you, look deeply into what you see, as what you will see, just may be very different from what you are used to seeing.

The one thing we have gotten away from in this Society is, to truly go out and explore what is around you, go out and travel these lonely roads, see everything that is around you and not just, what is on our usual route or path. Okay true these roads do get driven on from time to time, but with all the busy lifestyles and some who may be afraid, to venture away from their comfort zones, these roads become so lonely that the wildlife will walk them, with no fear of being hit very often.

Just like these lonely roads, we to can become lonely or isolated for many reasons throughout our journey, the difference between the roads and us is, we are a living breathing thing the road is not. We have feelings deep within us, the road just lies there waiting for its next traveler. When our feelings get hurt, we hurt real pain, which then has us hiding within ourselves and isolating ourselves from all that is around us. Even as the road gets driven on, with no feelings the road still lays there as if nothing is there. The road less traveled is not really a lonely road, where when we are lonely or isolated with no one or thing around, now we can hurt real pain from our feelings, but when we get hurt more than we like, now we have to worry about something totally different and that is, numbing our feelings deep within us, where now we can become like the road and feel nothing with no pain.

Being lonely and isolated for us, is totally different than that of the road. Way too often we get lost within the loneliness and lose our way, we bury our true feelings deep within, as to not become hurt with real pain, when we do this we then, become someone for who we truly are not, so we can try to look as normal as normal can be. Being lonely and isolated will come with a price, but driving on the road less traveled and exploring, or truly seeing the beauty all around you is priceless, there is a huge difference between the two, which you will never see, unless you look deeply into what you see. We all will think we feel lonely and isolated, but we will never feel anything as our true feelings have been buried so deep that, we have numbed ourselves to all that is around us, which now has us just wandering , instead of walking our paths through this journey of life, to be better and stronger.

 

” Is the road really lonely or is it just lieing there as still as still can be”

” To go out and explore means to truly get out of your comfort zone and see new things”

” Feelings are deep within us all, even at the times when we numb ourselves from these feelings to escape the pain and hurt.

 

 

We are ” Destroying” ourselves throughout this Journey

We of this Society have witnessed way too much ugliness, even more than Societies of the past, true other Societies have seen some ugliness, but the ugliness around us today, has pretty much taken on a life of it’s own. I mean seriously………….. All the mass shootings, the Terrorists wanting nothing more than to end all those who don’t share their warped and twisted so called lifestyles, then there are the children of the inner cities getting a hold of guns and turning them on anyone, just because they think it would be cool? You have the Parent’s of these children going around like their children are Angels and all other children are wrong? You send your children to school everyday so they can become smarter and live a life better than yourself, but instead the schools are a mess, between the Bully’s and the deranged ones wanting to hurt others around them, not only where are the Parents when their children need them most, but where are the Teachers, who not only are supposed to teach our children, but it is also their responsibility to keep the children’s safe from all harm and most importantly, the Parents actually trust these Individuals to keep their children safe, during their duration of the school day.

Natural disasters like Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes etc….. These are going to happen and worry us greatly, but having to worry about all the other ugliness around us today, no wonder why we are a broken Society today.   Most of all the ugliness around us today is the responsibility of we the People of this Society and we are not doing a good enough job in eliminating this ugliness. We vote for these so called leaders to lead us in this Society, so we can all be better and stronger moving forward, but instead these so called leaders say what we want to hear, then stab us in the back when they get voted in and proceed to do what they want to only benefit themselves. They make these Bills that turn into law only to help a certain few and the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves and struggle greatly, work hard, while some get everything handed to them on a silver platter? You want real equality……….. It has nothing to do with how much money you have, or what color you are, or even what sex you are, we are all Humans on this Earth, walking a path through this journey of life and we all need to smell the sweet smell of reality, instead of simply dreaming and sponging off of others.

These so called ” Dreamers” who walk into a country and think they can sponge off the people of that country, need to seriously get a life and try working as the rest of us do everyday. Your dreams will never come true if at first, you don’t put in the work and simply help yourself achieve your dreams. Let’s take the American Dream for instance, you think you can just lay there and ” Poof”, your dreams are there in front of you when you awaken? I got a news flash for you…………. it don’t happen that way, you first have to work hard, so then your dreams can become reality. In this Society for some reason, we have become afraid of working hard and even the thought of work, not only scares the hell out of some, but it sickens them to the point they can’t even get out of bed to work. The video game craze has made us become anti social, as we sit in front of a computer, instead of going out and becoming social with those around us, because of this we have become very scared of face to face interactions with anybody, but put us in front of a PC and suddenly we now become very active with our voice and in most cases, we say the wrong things cause there is no true interaction going on at all.

There is a simple solution to all this ugliness, but first we as a Society have to come together in unity, then the solution will be right there in front of us, especially when we not only have complete faith in Jesus Christ, but we also have complete faith in ourselves. With the complete faith in Jesus and ourselves, then there is always hope for a bright future, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Also when we dig down deep within our hearts and souls, then we can truly feel the love and empathy within us, which will then aid all of us moving forward, as we then battle all the ugliness and defeat it, once and for all. The ugliness is only a product of just how divided we have become, leading us into this broken Society, if we only felt deeply of the love and empathy within us, then all the ugliness will disappear from all our paths through this journey of life, so we all can be at peace and happiness, while we all work hard at making our dreams become our reality.

 

” A dream is something we make up while we sleep and is greatly different from what reality truly is”

” Sometimes a dream can become a reality, but first you need to work hard to make it that reality”

” Some may try to steer us in the direction that we feel uncomfortable, which is why we need complete faith in Jesus and ourselves to overcome and go in our own direction”

” We are all equal to each other as Humans walking a path no matter of who you are, which is why we should never let money, color or sex determine our equality”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The message of the Higher Power……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This is the coolest picture I have snapped in a while, this is a stump that has been submerged within a pond and now, has dried out on main land, to which looks so smooth, not to say of how cool it truly looks, with all the different things you can say of what it looks like? Perception by each of us will have us see many things from this stump and perception by each of us will truly show, just how unique we are to each other.

Sometimes this perception we all have will lead us to many faults, as the number one fault is that, when we perceive something, we then think that our own perception is truly what it is and discourage that of what another will perceive. Perception is just that and by no means is of what it truly is, which is the biggest problem within a Society of many, now you have many that will perceive one thing and then, totally be against one another from the perception.

You can look no further than our elected officials here within the United States of America, or any Government from any country, these Individuals will perceive and think they know what’s best for the people of their country, but now they can’t even come together in the reality of, what is truly best for the people of the country for which they represent.

Perception is the greatest thing that God gave us when he created us, When we perceive properly and look deeply into that perception, we then can see anything in many different ways, but we of this Society now take each perception and discard them, simply because we think that our own perception is the right one and the perception from another, is completely wrong, even without truly looking deeply into the perception. Just like this thing called Political Correction, now you have one word said by one, with another crying he is offended by that word, but say the same word to another person and nothing is ever said of that word? Political correction has made us all weak and now, we have a Generation of weak minded that, can’t even deal with any true reality as they walk their path of this journey through life.

Some may call me a freak, simply because I believe and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, but what I say is, who cares because what I believe is of my own, as we each in this Society have our own beliefs and this is what makes us truly unique to each other. With this new Generation within this Political Correct Society, you know have ones that perceive incorrectly and form their own beliefs from there perception. Then over the years of political Correction, you now have the many within this Society going against each other, instead of working together, coming together, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, to not only be better and stronger, but be within the peace and happiness that God envisioned when he created each of us.

Now to get back to this picture, let’s look again so we can truly see our own perception of what we see of the picture, while we truly respect what another will perceive from this same picture, if we can totally use this as an exercise, to truly look deeply into what we see and then perceive what we see, then respect the perception of what others will see of the same picture, then just maybe we in this Society can totally change for the better and from the change, we than can work together in harmony, while we all move forward along our paths of this journey, then at the same time we can all be at peace, while we smile with real happiness, as this journey than can be of what God truly envisioned, when he created each one of us.

 

”  Perception by no means is true reality and we all perceive everything differently, but to discard the perception of another is the wrong way to move forward stronger”

” Political correction has made us all weak, as we are too busy being afraid of what we say to each other”

” God gave us the great gift of perception when he created us, so we all can walk our paths of this journey to be stronger and better”

” when we perceive correctly and do away with this Political correction, then we all can work together in harmony, while we are at peace and are truly happy throughout this journey”

 

Out with the old…….in with the new

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Ronald Reagan was one of the greatest Presidents of my lifetime so far, with JFK a close second, just too bad he couldn’t finish his time at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, Ronald Reagan said during his time, ” if Fascism comes before us along our paths of this journey, it would be in the form of Liberalism”. Well I got a news flash for you!!! It is here and those Liberals have taken it too an all new height.

Then you have Hollywood, these people do nothing but act a part of a Fictitious character, then when they have an awards show for their actions and do nothing but bash all that is around them. Now don’t get me wrong, there are still a few good Actor’s out there, but not like the days of the past, for the most part, these Actor’s will do nothing but, try to lecture us all in the fine art of, making their fake reality, a big part of all our realities.

Another Hollywood award show in the books, now as much as I could give two ( you know whats), it is reported everywhere throughout the Liberal media, only because it fits right into their agendas, so it then gets stuffed further down our throats. I could care less what Hollywood thinks as these Individuals, with their acting of their fictitious characters, only will bring to us their views, instead of actually using their brain and truly spreading around fact, so we then can respect them moving forward. When you take to an award show for which you have been nominated, or even better, you have actually won an award for your craft, then maybe you should accept that award with grace, acknowledge those who helped you get to that point, but never should you use this time space to bash anyone and never should you even try to, force your views or fake realities down the throats of, not just those around you, but of those who graciously voted to give you that award.

Now not just those in Hollywood are shoving their views down our throats, we also have some that are completely clueless, that will do anything to disrupt our daily lives, just to try to get us all to see their warped and twisted views. Those of us that are in the silent majority that simply move forward within our paths of this journey, try so hard to focus on what is important, but where all this hatred and ugliness is everywhere, it then becomes that much harder, for even us to move forward in peace and happiness. Our paths through this journey of life really is not that hard to do it correctly, it is we the people that make it hard, with our actions or non actions.

With each Society that comes to this journey to walk their paths, you will have many changes that will come as well, true some change are good and very true, that there will be many changes that are a very bad fit, or that will bring much pain and hurt to our paths. This is where we the people have to be smarter and weed out the bad changes,so we than can make a more informed decision of change to our lives as we walk our paths of this journey through life. Change is good when done correctly, but when we change and it does nothing but disrupt our lives, then we need to look no further than at ourselves, so we then can correct our mistakes, instead of pushing the blame on another around us, which then leads us into a time like we are in now, by taking our fake realities and views, then shoving it down the throats of all that is around us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, not all the paths can double as a correct path for each of us, which then has us all looking to groom our own paths for the way that best fits ourselves, it is not up to a few to blaze a trail for the rest of us, as we all have to put in the work, blaze a trail that best fits ourselves, so we than can work together in unity and walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness, while we make the correct changes, to move forward better and stronger.

 

” Out with the old, in with the new, this is how we make the correct changes and move forward better and stronger”

” To accept an award with grace, has nothing to do with bashing anybody or furthering an agenda that has no merit”

” Each path we walk has it’s ups and downs that will bruise us and hurt us, but if we don’t smooth out the path, or fix what we need, then the path will never become smooth moving forward”

” Hollywood is full of Actor’s that act a part of a Fictitious Character, these character’s are within a fake reality, lets leave them there and move forward within the real reality”

 

9/11 remembrance

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Sixteen years have passed since that terrible day of tragedy, a day that will forever haunt those closest to the attack, those men and woman within the twin towers, the first to run to the terror to help those in need, the families of those who perished or that are still feeling the effects of that tragic day, we all know someone either within the tragedy, or someone else close to that someone, this will always be known as the tragedy that changed America moving forward.

9/11……………. I bet we all will always remember where we were and what we were doing on this tragic day. For me it was a morning I was waking up to go to work, as I rose and walked into the kitchen to make a cup of the morning Joe, I stopped in the living room to turn on my favorite news channel and as the TV turned on, I saw clips of a plane crashing into what I later learned as the first tower, I remember thinking ” Oh what a tragic accident”, then a few minutes later in real time, I saw the second plane fly into the second tower, my first thought was ” what just happened”? It seemed so surreal and almost like I was dreaming, but after learning further that, we just have been attacked, now I wanted to know who was responsible for this act of terror and I want him or them to pay deeply for what they just did.

We all walk a path through this journey of life and within a Society full of ugliness and hatred, you just never know when this journey will come to a tragic end? There are way too many sick demented Individuals, that will do what ever they can to bring much pain to the rest of us. These sick demented Individuals are Human beings like you and I, only they have lost truly of who they are, maybe they had a tragic event happen to them and this is how they think they need to be, to try to relieve themselves of their pain? But no matter how deep your pain is, bringing pain to another, is no way to cure yourself of your own pain, these Individuals are in need of a major fix, only they are to afraid to address the pain, so they then bury it so deep within, that they truly lose who they truly are, as the rest of us basically kick them to the curve and refuse to reach out a helping hand to help them. We become so engulfed within this Society of ugliness and hatred, we then keep to ourselves to the point that, we are afraid of reaching out that helping hand and turn the other cheek to others in their time of need.

Through all this ugliness and hate, we here in this great country of America, are blessed with this thing called freedom, we can roam and do as we want within this country unlike some of other countries, which makes them sort of jealous at us and want to do whatever they can, to interfere with the freedom we have, but what we all seem to take for granted is, this freedom comes with a price and that price is, the many that have fought and perished, so we can be as free as we want within this country. We in this country are also responsible for taking for granted this freedom and the thinking that we deserve this, which has us becoming lazy, without continuing the fight to keep the freedom, for those to come in the future.

Maybe this tragic day of 9/11 could of been avoided? Simply by all of us within this World Society coming together in unity, to stand up to all the ugliness and hatred and ending it, before it gets to the level it is at now. We the people of this Society can end all this hate and ugliness if we just come together, instead of hiding within our own little world. If we all fight together to end all the hate and ugliness, just maybe we all throughout the World, can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace, happiness and love, just like God envisioned when he created this paradise for us all to enjoy.

 

” 9/11 was such a tragic day for so many, it has changed all that we are and all of who we are”

” Let us never forget 9/11 so we can heal and move forward better and stronger”

” We are all Humans walking a path through this journey of life, it is sad that some will take their pain and project it onto to others with no cares of who they hurt”

” This society of ugliness and hatred can end and it starts with each of us as people within this society of many”
