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 Journey of the trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The view from the Summit

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Hiking up a mountain is more than just going out for a jaunt, or some exercise, you don’t see a mountain and climb it just because it is there, you hike a mountain to look deeply in what you see, you hike a mountain to reach the summit of the mountain, so you can look out deeply into the horizon and truly see all the beauty all around you, while you sit and enjoy the peace and the serenity from all the true beauty.

Hiking up a mountain is a whole lot more than exercise, it is therapy for the soul. Sometimes you start out on a hike with some extra baggage, then just the pack on your back,  that extra baggage comes from the society for which we live. After a while our judgments get clouded, we become bothered by every little thing, our minds get filled with negativity and the positivity then disappears from the limelight. When you are hiking it is you, the trail and Mother nature which gives you a chance to escape and actually think of, what your next move will be. In this day of Social Media, some may hike just to brag on their social platforms, or maybe brag to others that they reached the summit of a certain mountain, they are not using what real hiking does for your soul properly, as when they come back from the summit, they feel even more clouded after, than before they even started the hike.

True hiking is the enjoyment of the hike, being on a trail and seeing things you normally would never see in your everyday life. The journey of climbing up a trail, to be as high as you can be, above the line of the tree tops, looking out into the horizon and really looking deeply into what you see, being one with yourself and Mother Nature, while you clear the clouds of your judgments, to think more clearly and to let the big weight of a society, melt away into the deep blue horizon. To hike properly along a trail and to the summit of a mountain, is to unwind, so you than can be truly of who you are and not the person that Society thinks you are, yes hiking is a free kind of therapy, that soothes your heart and soul, so you can move forward along your path of this journey through life, in peace and happiness always.

Hiking will bring change to you as you walk the trail of the mountain, whether it’s in the form of your surroundings, or it’s within you yourself with your attitude at the start of the hike, because at the beginning of the hike, you are filled with hatred and ugliness from a broken society, you are filled with negativity from the ugly society, then as you hike further, you can actually feel the negativity and the hatred, melt away and leave your body, making you feel much lighter as you move forward along the trail. The change that happens along the trail is within you and on the trail of the mountain, it not only helps you see the beauty in all that is around you, it helps beautify the soul deep within you, leaving you with good thoughts, more positivity than negativity and helps you stay true to who you are, without hiding in the plain sight of a society, because you are being someone you truly are not. Some of the trails you hike can be a lot of work, but when you hike properly up the mountain, it doesn’t feel like work, as you enjoy the hike and all the true beauty all around you, then when you reach the summit, you actually feel the peace and serenity deep within your heart and soul.

 

” Reaching the summit of any mountain is more than just bragging  on your social platform, it is therapy for the soul and us being of who we truly are”

” Check your negative baggage in the car as there is no room on the trail of the mountain you are hiking”

” Hiking is full of change all around you, even within you as you hike along the trail”

” To move forward along the hike, helps you move forward in society within the peace and joy around you”

” Sometimes we get so cluttered with the negative thoughts around us, that we then need a good hike within nature, to unclog ourselves from a broken society”

 

 

 

The Mountains are calling……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Journey through life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

The season to enjoy peace and serenity

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The season of camping is upon us once again, a time to escape our nine to five worlds and replace it with a world full of nature, peace, serenity and true beauty. real camping isn’t about showing off the new gadgets or parking a motor home at a campsite with many others, true camping is going to a place of true beauty within nature, so you can totally relax and forget about all the crap within this screwed up society for a short time during each trip. Some may not think of camping without running water, or a nice comfy bed to lie in as fun, but too be one with nature and enjoy all the true beauty around us, will give you free therapy and a natural way to destress, so you can have total peace and serenity away from all the crap within a screwed up Society.

Depending on the amount of equipment you have, camping can be a bit of work to set camp, but once camp is set, now you are on camp time, which is the time to relax within nature. Go for a nature walk and see some very different scenes than you may see within your usual path, maybe even see some different kinds of animals than just a dog or a cat? see a lot of different types of plant life, than the usual trees, shrubs or flowers, that get planted in your yard or the neighbors yard. With a camp fire burning in the fire pit and you sitting there staring into the fire, it can hypnotize you into a trance of total relaxation, with zero worries of whats around you, the campfire is always the center piece of the campsite, just like the fruit basket with the nuts being the center piece of the family thanksgiving  table.

Camping has come a long way with all the different gear you can achieve, yes it can be expensive as well, starting with the tent and instead of taking a while to set up the old school tents and figuring out which poles go with which, now you have easy up tents, that take just minutes and even with LED lights within the poles, to light up the inside of the tents. Then instead of sleeping on the ground, you can have a cot that isn’t that big, fit into your tent to rise you off the ground, plus you can also get an auto inflate air mattress, that when you unscrew the valve, it fills with air automatically, just don’t forget to screw it back tightly or the air will escape when you lie down. You really don’t need all these new modern gadgets, but they will make the true camping experience more enjoyable, so you than can be one with nature and totally relax within the peace and serenity, that camping should be all about.

We all need some kind to escape so we can refocus and move forward  along our paths through this journey of life to be better and stronger as well, we work hard at our jobs, then we work even harder at making our living quarters look presentable, not to just ourselves, but too all those around us as well. Then we go to the gym to work hard at making ourselves look as presentable as we can? Our downtime is in front of a picture tube bringing us either the drama of the day, or a night time drama TV show, that is an Actor acting a fictitious part, that we think is helping us escape our realities? Where does all the work end? If anything we work so hard everyday, that we then become out of focus, without truly enjoying all the true beauty that is around us. When we go true camping and become one with nature and see all the true beauty around, as Jesus Christ taught us, when he came and walked his journey with us, this is what truly relaxes us, so we can be at true peace, while we stay in touch with our true feelings. Yes we want to be comfortable no matter where we are and with all the technology around us, we have forgotten just what real comfortable truly is, sometimes we have to go back to the basics, so we can recharge, refocus and get back to being of truly who we are.

Sometimes we work too hard at trying to keep an appearance of trying to be someone we truly are not, when we should just simply be who we truly are and going camping within the beauty  of nature, helps us do just that, by refocusing and totally relaxing, without all the drama and the crap of our everyday lives. When we are truly of who we are, it is so much easier to be in touch with our true feelings, so we then can share our love within us, just as Jesus taught us, with each other. the paths we walk within this journey of life, really does not have to be as hard as we make it out to be, so instead of getting caught up within all the drama and the crap, go camping within nature, to refocus and totally relax with all the true beauty all around you.

 

” Camping can be as modern as you make it, but it will always be about nature and relaxation to refocus moving forward”

” Nature’s beauty full of peace and serenity, to see the true beauty throughout this journey of life”

” Why should you work hard at keeping up an appearance, when you can relax and be truly of who you are”

” To have total faith in Jesus Christ, is too have total faith in yourself moving forward”

 

 

 

Making a splash along this journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The beauty of Mother Earth is all around each of us, no matter of where you are along this planet. but with this beauty you are going to have some ugliness, that will help us stay focused as we walk our paths through this journey. There comes a lot of struggles to each of us as well, as we walk our paths, you need these struggles, which helps us stay focused on, not just ourselves, but on each other as they walk their paths as well. This journey is not and will never be perfect, as this is not what God wanted when he created us and all that is around us, we may strive to be perfect, but perfection is like the word tomorrow…….. it never comes, for when tomorrow comes it then changes into today and yesterday when it passes.

We all go through struggles along this journey, but we learn to adapt, change what we need to change and fix what we need to fix, so we than can walk our paths better and stronger moving forward. Now there are some throughout this journey, that really never get the chance to become better and stronger, as the village for which they live, never develops an infrastructure, so the people can move forward with strength, there is more poverty within these villages then anywhere else, yes poverty can be in even a country like America, as there will be some that get left behind, cause they can’t keep up. Some of these villages in other parts of the globe, have such a severe poverty level, that children die before they can grow up, from malnutrition, to disease, as without an infrastructure, running water, or even food on the table ( actually there is no table to put the food on), these children die before they get to grow, like you and I within this country. Now America is not immune to this poverty, as it does happen here as well, but it is a problem of this society, simply because we have turned our backs to it, instead of reaching out, in any way that we can.

With all this poverty, ugliness and hatred around us, it amazes me to see that we the people can stay so arrogant to the problems around us, God see’s just how arrogant we are and with all the natural disasters happening around us,   this is his way of trying to wake us up and getting us to come together, so we can help each other, instead of turning our backs on one another. With less struggling, with less ugliness and hatred that disappears from our existence, then we all can actually walk our paths in peace, which then has this journey through life, become full of happiness for all always.

Making a splash along this journey of life, isn’t just for the water to fall from the rocks, we all can make a splash in our lives as well. Right now the splash is in the hands of Satan, with all the ugliness and hatred. Now if we truly follow the word of God, follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, then we the people can take the splash back from Satan, so the hatred and ugliness disappear and the good of this journey will prevail once again. Truly reach out and help those in need, help those children in poverty, so they to can grow within this Society like you and I, just maybe these children in poverty, with the right help, just might grow and help the Society for which they grow in. This is a big circle called the cycle of life, all our lives revolve in a cycle and when a link in the chain is broken, then you have a broken cycle, that many fall through the cracks, with no chance to grow and be stronger moving forward. We all have to come together as one, just as God envisioned and Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his journey with us. The ball is in our court, the people walking our paths of this journey, to reach out to those in need, so we all can walk together in peace and happiness always, throughout this journey of life.

 

” A water fall makes a splash from high above the pool below, we the people can make a bigger splash within Society when we come together as one”

” There is so much true beauty around us, it amazes me that this ugliness and hatred can consume so much of us”

” Struggles are a part of this journey, we all have them, just depends on how you adapt, change and fix, to make the struggles less of”

” Through all the ugliness and hatred, the poverty around us has been over looked for to long, time we work together to end all three”
