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”

” 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”

May you finally be at peace Senator John McCain, Thank you very much for your brave service in the United States Navy, as your journey through the Navy had it’s bright spots, as well as it’s dark and gloomy days. You Sir are a true Hero, as most would of cracked under all the pain and hurt you have gone through. You are exactly the type of person, for whom built this country, into the great country it has become and without men like you, only God knows of what might of become with the land of the United States of America. John McCain went from a Hero of the Vietnam war, to becoming  U. S. Senator, which he gave a huge part of himself, for the good of his fellow man, now some may not agree with his policies, or him as a person, but you simply can not deny, that he was most definitely, a true American Hero, for which we all can look up to, so we to can strive to walk our paths of this journey through life, as close to being the man that John McCain truly was.

Just as this Eagle looks down on us all, to protect and serve being the strong bird it is, now John McCain is looking down upon us all, to protect and serve us as best he can, while he appears before God, to receive his wings, which will help him get around to protect us all, for the same thing he did, while he was flying around for the Navy, doing what he loved to do.

John McCain came from a strong family with a strong family foundation, as his Dad and Granddad were both Admirals in the United States Navy, making him a third generation Navy man. After his days in the Navy ended, he then embarked on a path of Public service, which he had more than stepped up to the plate in many ways, throughout his career. John definitely lived a complete and genuine life, as a life that most only dream of. So no matter of what you think of John McCain the man, or the Politician, there is no denying that, he was a true American Hero of our time, who gave his all, for the good of us all, so we to can walk our paths of this journey through life, following the foot steps of such a great man.

This journey through life is not measured by how many years you have within it, This journey is totally measured by the life you live within the years you are so graciously given by God. When you walk your paths correctly, the journey will reward you with greatness and the one thing we so take for granted and that is, the respect we earn from all those around us, very much like the respect John McCain has earned throughout his journey. With this respect of all of us, truly has us feeling the love of God, that is deep within our souls, so we than can share this love with our true empathy, with each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we walk through this journey correctly, the journey seems so simple, but when we bring all the other crap like, hatred, ugliness and corruption to this journey, is when the journey becomes very difficult for us all. So let’s take the John McCain approach as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in peace and happiness, while we strive for greatness and the respect of all those around us.

 

” A true Hero does not look in the mirror and see a Hero, he becomes one with his actions for all those around him”

” Respect is a two way street and will never become a street of one way”

” God has so graciously given us this journey to walk our paths, it is how we repay him with our actions, that brings us much respect”

 

 

 

 

America the Beautiful

” In giving we receive, Love one another as I have loved you”

John 15:12

 

”            * O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

* To be understood as to understand,

* To be loved as to love,

* For it is in giving that we receive,

* It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

* It is in dying that we are born to eternal life

Saint Francis of Assisi

 

 

America is so beautiful, but if spend all your time within the cities of America and not venture out to where the hands of Mankind are not, you really haven’t truly been living, as you walk your path of this journey through life. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some beauty within the cities, but the beauty in places where Mankind has never touched and where Mother Nature has roamed free, to purify God’s beautiful creation, now your truly seeing what true beauty is and that true beauty, is also deep within our hearts and souls, just that within this troubled society, we don’t let it out for others to see, as we only hide it deeper within, to keep it from all the ugliness around us today.

Now with that said, we of this society are so consumed with all the hatred and ugliness all round us, that we just can not see any true beauty for wherever we look. Most of why we are so consumed I place the blame squarely on the left bias media of today, their only agenda that matters is, to bring us as much hatred and drama as they can, so hopefully we don’t see anything else around us? We the People of this society are just as much to blame, as we let this happen and take no action against their so called news, or for better words, ” Fake news Media”. These media types call themselves Journalists, but yet they have no clue on how to write from the heart and let real words flow from their brains, to their fingers and onto the keyboard, as they type their so called stories. They would rather go to a Press Conference, ask their dumb and stupid questions, then take the words of response and twist them around, so it will fit into their drama ridden agendas. The left bias Media is a big problem within this society and we the People, need to wake up and totally see through all their crap and end their drama ridden free reign of the spoken word.

The other problem we have within this society is the fact that, these so called Politicians that get voted into office by we the people, will say all that we want to hear so they can get our votes and become elected, then after they are in, they turn their backs on those that elected them, just so they can back stab and manipulate the system for themselves, as they totally lose sight of all true reality around them. Right now the entire Democratic party is so far in Denial, that none of them have a clue of what true reality is, these people hate so much of our President, that they can not even recognize him as being the President of the United States and that is sad, when you have a President elected by the people and our other leaders can’t even call him a President? President Trump has been our President for just under two years, but yet he has done a whole lot more for the American people, than that other guy (Barrack Obama) has done in his eight years combined. I will give Barrack Obama credit for one thing only………. and that is, he was a better communicator and could speak well, without being rough around the edges with his words. Even with the ” Witch Hunt” investigation going on, President Trump continues to work hard and achieve a lot of good for our economy, but yet nothing has really come out of this investigation? Well I am calling out those of this investigation and seriously think about investigating further, not only the Clinton foundation, but the Clinton’s in general, in the way they have corrupted everything in their wake. It is time the investigation spends our tax dollars more wisely and actually do their jobs, instead of simply wasting all the hard earned money of the tax payer, on something that is nothing but a ” Witch Hunt”.

The other biggest thing that needs to be totally addressed is, the topic of   “Illegal” Immigration. If you are knowingly doing something Illegal and those around you keep slapping you on the hand, but yet you keep knowingly doing it, there is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, without sweeping it further under the rug. Mexico has a border wall on the other side of their country to keep out the riff raff, so why can’t we Americans have a border wall, so we can further protect the interests of all Americans? Don’t get me wrong, I do know that America was built on Immigration, but immigration done the correct way, without the word ” illegal” before the word of immigration. With the most recent news stories of fellow Americans being murdered at the hands of ” Illegal”Immigrants being so sad, so just how much of this has to happen, before our so called Leaders wake up from their dream world and simply get back in touch with true reality. I totally get the fact that others of other countries have their issues and want to find a better life for their families, but we here in America have our issues as well and the biggest one is, to totally revamp our Immigration policies and put and end to the word ” Illegal ” in front of the word Immigration, so we all can walk our paths, not just as safe as we can, but within true peace and happiness always.

This coming November is going to be one of the biggest and most important elections of my lifetime and if we screw this one up, America just may go in a direction, that we all will not like. True there may be some Democrats out there that are fair, balanced and totally in touch with reality, but I haven’t seen one yet? So with that said and being an Independent, I just may never vote Democrat until they come out of the denial of which they are in? Plus I am in total favor of term limits for all within the walls of Washington D. C. time to not just drain the swamp of corruption, but putting and end to those within our Government becoming to comfortable and set in their ways, so they can further their agendas, while they totally forget about those of who put them into their office they are in? We all here in America work hard and pay our taxes in this country, it is time we get rewarded for our hard work and not being taken advantage of or forgotten, like those so called leaders are doing now. We have a president in place right now that can do the job and so far he has proved he can do it, so this November, let’s reward him with the right candidates, so he can further his work of, ” Making America Great”. The time is now to fix what we need to fix, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” Drain the swamp is not the walking through the muck to clean the swamp land, it is about fixing the swamp of corruption within the walls of Washington D. C.”

” The true beauty of America is all around us, time we see through all the crap and totally see all the true beauty that is around us”

” When the word Illegal comes before anything, you are doing something wrong and need to fix what you are doing”

” Washington D. C. is flooded within the swamp of corruption, time to clean up the swamp for the good of all”

” When there is an investigation that has no base and goes no where, time to end the investigation and move on to something else”

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the right focus, comes true perspective

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Perspective and focus go hand in hand, one without the other will have you walk aimlessly throughout this journey of life, without being able to truly find your true purpose of this journey. Just as in this picture, when you focus on one thing, the rest become cloudy and out of focus, when you focus on what’s down the road, then what’s in the foreground becomes cloudy and out of focus and vice versa. As much as we would like to have it all, you clearly can not, we can achieve many things throughout this journey, but to have it all now and right before us at this time, will just never happen all at once. Everything in moderation, so we can set the proper goals for ourselves, then as we achieve these goals, we than can move forward, not just onto the next goal, but move forward full of confidence, that helps us feel good deep within our souls for a journey well walked.

To have a clear perspective and be in focus as we walk this journey through life, is kind of like walking on a balance beam, where there is this narrow beam that you need to walk across, while you not only put one foot in front of the other, but you focus on what is in front of you, so you don’t fall off the beam. When your perspective doesn’t match up to your focus, now there is a whole host of issues that can come from that, which then forces you to become out of focus for what you need, as you trip and fall over your own feet, trying to put them one step at a time in front of you. Being out of focus and losing perspective of what is important to you, not only will have you walking through the clouds of your judgments, but will also have you become someone for who you truly are not, then you can lose sight of the true journey of the path you walk, throughout this thing called life.

When taking a picture with a camera, there is a process to follow before you actually snap the button to take the picture. You want to make sure that everything is in focus, so the perspective of the picture comes out as crystal clear as you can make it. The theory is so much the same as we walk our paths through this journey of life. It is not just the putting the one foot in front of the other, you first have to focus on where your putting that foot to take the step and each step moving forward, so we then don’t trip and fall disrupting us from walking further. It is totally okay to stop from time to time, so you can look further down the path of your perspective, so you than can keep in focus of what is right in front of you, you don’t need to rush as there is no time limit along this journey of life, simply because if you walk your path out of focus, then you will miss a lot of great stuff, that can make you better and stronger moving forward.

When you don’t take the time to focus as you walk your path of this journey, you will never find the true perspective of the journey. Within this Society and especially within all the big cities, there are so many walking aimlessly, that they clearly are out of focus within the path that they walk. The big cities are so fast paced it makes it very difficult to truly look deeply into what you see, as those that live out of the cities in a more relaxed setting, actually can see more clearly along their path, that is simply because they take the time to focus on what is in front of them as they take each step, which then gives them a better perspective of this journey through life. This journey is really not that difficult when you do it correctly, stay in focus of where you are going, so then the perspective of the journey will help you become better and stronger as you walk your path. Now I get the fact that some of our issues that come to us, are out of our control and are forced on to us from another, but when we stay in focus and keep the perspective of what is in front of us, then we can fix what we need to fix, to move forward along the journey and not move backwards, out of focus with no perspective. With good focus and keeping perspective along our paths of this journey, we now can walk with confidence, as peace and happiness surround us with each step, of a journey well walked.

 

” Focused and perspective go hand in hand, when you lose perspective you then become out of focus moving forward”

” Having good balance not just in sports but in life, will, help keep your perspective and focus to keep moving forward”

” We all need to take better pictures to keep us in focus of the perspective moving forward to be better and stronger in all we do”

” Taking the time to look deeply into what you see, will help greatly putting one foot in front of the other, to have good focus with a perspective moving forward throughout the journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Times change… People change… in more ways than one

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

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”

 

 

 

 

 

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”
