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”

 

 

 

 

Happy Halloween ( I think)

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

What lurks beyond these tree’s and within this little shack? Could there be a trap door inside, to drop us into a bottom less pit? Maybe under the leaves lies a Zombie, to pop up and scare the crap out of you? Enter if you dare and all in the name of ” Halloween”.

Another Halloween is upon us, the time of year people can get away with not being their true selves, we all blame a day, so we can have an excuse to go out and act in many ways that are childish, yes I said it…….. Halloween is for the Children to be able to play make believe with the World, instead of within the walls of their rooms in their house. Within this Society of today, we have taken the day of Halloween to an all new height, Some may try to get this day as a national holiday, so they can have yet another excuse to not go to work, others will get dressed into something they truly are not, then make like it is all in fun? Halloween is a day for the children to have fun, but the grown ups have invaded and taken the true fun from them.

Within this Society of today, full of Political correction, ugliness and hate, we all today are living everyday as we truly are not, We hide deeply within, a huge part of who we are, simply because we are shamed into this and then putting forth a fake self, so others will think we are normal. Then we move forward with no real responsibility of ourselves or what may be around us. We all have a little child within us and that child grows and matures as we grow and mature within Society, but when we hide deeply within, we never let that child inside grow properly, leaving us all within a fantasy world, instead of living within reality world.

Halloween is suppose to be a fun day, so the children can get dressed up and go out to receive many treats, as they show off their creativity of their costumes. Let the children play and explore, without being forced into something/someone they truly are not. The parent’s are suppose to be more responsible, to help and teach their children correctly, not themselves neglecting their children, so they themselves can go out, dress up, to have some so called fun. All the parent’s are truly doing is, hiding deeper within of who they truly are, so they don’t have to take the responsibility of what they are doing.

Then you have those that become lost within the clouds of their judgments, lost between fantasy and reality, as they have deeply hidden themselves, so deep within, that not even they know of where or who they truly are. These are the Individuals that have brought all this hate and ugliness to us all, because they have no idea of who they are, they then move forward not feeling real feelings and without any empathy of all those around them. These Individuals have never acknowledged the child within them, which leaves themselves lost with no identity, they try to find that identity with the way they dress and present themselves, which has others making fun of them and leaving them further in the clouds of their judgments, then they form this hatred of not just those who make fun of them, but for all throughout Society, simply because they know no better.

Halloween has become a time for all to hide within, as we dress up a part from our imagination, there is nothing wrong with that, except when you let that fantasy part become your reality and dictate of who you truly are, now all our realities become less of, we all get lost within the clouds of fantasy, just to please the ones that need a helping hand, so they can find of truly who they are. If only we all get back to reality, forget about dressing up and just be of who you truly are, just maybe the love, empathy and peace will come back to us all, as the hatred and the ugliness fade away, as the day of Halloween every year, along our paths through this journey of life.

 

” We lose all reality within a day of fantasy that is the day of Halloween”

” We dress up for Halloween, but in life we don’t dress up when we become someone we truly are not”

” Life has fantasy as it also has reality, it’s we the people that lose sight of both with our actions”

” So what does lurk within the shack in the picture? time to let go and be truly of who you are”

 

The Marijuana Question

Forest

 

Question four here in the state of Massachusetts is of the legalization of Marijuana, are you kidding me!!! Like those so called Leaders we voted into office, really don’t have anything else, to waste their time on? Or even better…… Waste the Tax payer .money on this nonsense. This path here you see in this picture, that is heading into the fog, is exactly where we all will be heading and most likely not even remember, how we reached wherever it is we are going?

Marijuana was and always will be known as the ” gateway drug”. It is illegal now and you can see a “High” percentage of People still get it and smoke it on a daily basis, just imagine it becoming legal, now you have a whole list of other issues that will come from this really stupid idea that someone actually came up with, now maybe I get one reason for this question and that is, to tax and bring in more revenue to this state, but at what real cost do you want to bring in money, to help ease the burden of all the tax payers?

Alcohol is a legal drug and we all see the issues it brings throughout this Society, not all of us can be a social drinker and have no issues with this drug, as to most it becomes a crutch that is easy to get, when our troubles become so over whelming, that we turn to this drug to help ease our sorrows for a short time. When we drink to excess we then can not think clearly and do stupid things, like getting in our vehicles and driving, as we have no clue of what we are doing, let alone the fact that we are putting other lives and the life of ourselves, in a situation that will change our lifestyle forever, or even worse either kill ourselves or those around us. Now some will say ” but I can’t live without it”? Now we have a whole different issue and that is, Addiction.

Addiction can affect anybody no matter what your status is and addiction can come to us in many ways as well, but what addiction can’t be is…….. Cured. Once you have and addiction, no matter of what kind, it then becomes a lifetime battle which has you with feelings of no control and low self esteem.  With the proper help you can deal with the addiction and you can deal with it on your own, just that it takes a strong person, who has a strong will. but to get to this point you need the proper help to guide you. Alcohol is a crutch that we then depend on, to help us deal with pain and sorrow, which then we totally forget about our inner strength, that doesn’t need a crutch, it isn’t just a quick fix, all we need is, total Faith in ourselves, so we then can have the Hope to curve the grip of addiction, so it won’t grab a hold and never let us go.

There are many more Addictions that tempt us and try to take control of us, playing the slots at a Casino is another type of Addiction known as Gambler’s Addiction, which the adrenaline gives you a rush that you then crave and can’t get enough of. There are many ways that Addiction can come to us and control every fiber of our being and the best way to help stay in control, is to understand about Addiction, understand that when it grabs you, it will forever hold you even when you think you are free from the Addiction.

To say that legalizing Marijuana is a good idea for all moving forward, I think we need to re think this plan? I mean I am no Doctor, but I do have Common Sense and it tells me that, all drugs whether Alcohol, Marijuana or hard core drugs, will affect the body in a negative way and the ones who dispute this, are the ones that have let the grip of Addiction grab a hold of them and can’t see clearly through the clouds of the Addiction. Plus having two legal drugs like Alcohol and Marijuana, now you have a whole lot of other issues as well and everybody is now running, or driving either High or drunk? Which then happens to not only put ourselves at risk, but it puts others around us at risk as well. Common Sense is not so ” Common” within this Society and has us all walking our paths within the clouds of our judgments, as we take zero responsibility for our actions, we then become lazy and have no clue of what real work is and by work I mean, totally understanding everything around us, no matter if it’s a Person, Place or a thing. There are many ways through this journey of life that can derail us and throw us a curve ball, but none as strong as Addiction is, especially when it grabs you with all it’s strength and never wants to let you go. I think we all need to ” be a lot safer and make much better decisions”, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in Peace and be happy at all we do.

 

” Addiction is like a crutch that we lean on, to help us move forward even when a part of us is broken”

” Marijuana is the gate way drug that baits you, sucks you in, then reels you into a World that is surrounded by clouds”

” Questions on the ballot for us to vote on, sometimes needs more research with some common sense thinking to truly understand the question”

” Common Sense is within us all, we just have to acknowledge it to unleash it’s true power and make it very Common once again”

” How can you have Common Sense when you are either High or Drunk, with no responsibility or cares for yourself or even whats around you”

Troubling times throughout this Journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This to some that may not know, is known as a Fallout Shelter, it protects us from harm as it is built into the Earth, with thick concrete walls and thick steel doors, keeping you from whatever is trying to harm you. This could help protect you from natural disasters, like Tornadoes and Hurricanes, or it can help you escape War’s like back in the Era of World War 1 and 2. People back in the Era of the War’s were building these on their properties, as they wanted to feel safe from what was unknown. We all Fear the unknown it is completely normal as much as we may think? So when the more fortunate ones built these Shelters and stocked them with supplies needed, it gave them a feeling of peace, knowing they had a place to escape what Feared them, or whatever ugliness was around them.

With these Fallout Shelters and keeping us safe from the ugliness around us, who then is suppose to keep us safe from each other? Everyday on the news and what we may see with our eyes, there are some who are attacking those around us, these attacks range from a wide variety of different kinds of attacks both physical and mentally. This definitely was not the vision God expected, when he created all of Mankind.  These attacks are all on us, the People who walk their paths along this Journey of Life.

Physical Abuse, Mental Abuse, they may come to us differently, but they leave the same scars deep within our Souls, they hurt us in ways that it turns us into someone we truly are not, they affect that inner Child that is deep within all of us, which leaves that Child in so much pain, that it never grows properly, as we never grow properly around it. The Abuser does nothing but create Victims and most Victims then become an Abuser, it is one big vicious circle, that we all need to look deeply into, so we can break the links of this circle and all live peacefully with happiness everyday.

Abuse of any kind should never be tolerated, but behind this Abuse is an Individual hurting deeply within themselves, an Individual that is so lost within the clouds of their judgments, that they can’t see where they are going along their path of this journey, they have lost all respect and trust of everything around them, so they then lash out trying to end their own pain from hurting them anymore. Trust is a big part of an Individual that is hurting, as without it they feel there is nowhere to turn, in order for them to heal from their pain. When an Individual becomes a Victim of any kind of Abuse, they stop walking their paths and simply wander in circles, just trying to get rid of the pain that has engulfed them deep inside, they lose the trust of all that is around them, which then has them losing all respect of everything around them as well.

When we hurt deep inside, it is not just ourselves that hurt, it is that Inner Child deep within all of us that hurts deeply as well. When this Child grows properly, then we ourselves grow properly with it and become better and stronger moving forward, but when that Child hurts it stops us from moving forward and become stagnate throughout this journey. The way we properly heal ourselves from our troubles is, not only forgiving ourselves, but forgiving that Child as well. Just like we Nourish, Feed, clothe and take care of our Children in our Families, we need to do the same of that Inner Child within us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we can do so in Peace and Happiness everyday.

 

” Fallout Shelters protects us from any harm that may come to us, but true forgiveness of ourselves can protect us from the harm that will come to all of us”

” We all have an Inner Child within us, we need to take better care of this Child so we all can prosper and be better along this journey”

” Trust, Respect and Forgiveness are the true factors of our lives and these factors we all take for granted”

 

 

To Truly be who you are……

robin

Robin Williams was truly a special Person, he made us all laugh and smile through the years. From his stand up comedy, to his movie Acting whether serious or funny roles, We were all blessed to experience a great man, who we all admired and liked.

While Robin Williams was making us all smile through the years, he was hurting greatly deep inside himself, the Depression he was suffering from, was basically eating him from the inside out. Depression is a Mental Illness, that we need to take care of, as there are more than we care to acknowledge, that suffer this Dreadful Disease.

This Depression can attack anyone and it does not discriminate, it doesn’t care if you are filthy rich, or if you live on the streets and Homeless. A lot of our Homeless People are Homeless because of either, Society has forced them to the streets, or they suffer a Mental Illness that keeps them from walking their paths of this journey through life properly. Our Government just to make their budgets, will cut certain things to save a buck, one of those things is, Mental Illness, leaving many People to fend for themselves, with no where to turn when they need a Helping hand, so they then take to the streets and walk a very troubling journey throughout their lives.

Pauley  Perrette……AKA Abby sciuto the big star of the #1 show NCIS, is a big Advocate for the Homeless and also reaching out to help them by being their voice. Back a few months ago, she was viciously attacked by a Homeless man at knife point, he said he would kill here, so Miss Perrette went along with him and lied there on the ground in complete Fear of her life. This Man was later found and is now in jail, but Pauley was hurting deeply inside from this attack and only now she is speaking out from it. She is in a much better space now, with the help she reached out for. Unfortunately in this Society not all of us have someone to reach out to at our time of need,  so they then walk their journey’s while they hurt deeply inside, “this Depression does not discriminate”, but we throughout this Society do and is why there are many who hurt deeply inside. Pauly is truly a special Person like Robin Williams, whether in the Television show acting, or in life walking her journey. I just read an article of her finally speaking out after her attack and talking of her attacker. Pauley said that she cried real tears and totally forgives her attacker, now if this isn’t true Empathy, than someone clue me in as to what is.

Now if we all were in touch of our true Empathy like Pauley is, then just maybe this Society would be a much better Society for us all to walk our paths of our journey through life. Sometimes in life we come across great People and two of those great People are, Robin Williams and Pauley Perrette.

 

 

” True Empathy is within us all we just have to feel it, then acknowledge it, so we can then share it with all those around”

” Homelessness is a much bigger problem than we truly acknowledge it is, we all have to work together in first acknowledging it, then taking action to fix the problem forever”

 

To much Lip service with no action

Dock

We throughout this Society are all about the lip service and have no clue, of what taking action is anymore. It all starts with our so called Leaders and trickles down to us folk, that make this Country what it is, then when you add in all the Propaganda Media, now you have so much Lip service, that it is impossible to have any action of any kind.

Our Elected Officials today will move their Lips saying what we want to hear, so they can swindle our vote their way, then once they are in the office, forget about any action, cause there is no action only a bunch of broken promises. With a National Debt fast approaching twenty trillion big ones (yes I said twenty Trillion), probably within the next couple or three years, shows just what our elected officials  are truly doing in the office they hold and that is nothing. Obama will say the Economy is fine, cause the Unemployment numbers are down, what I want to truly know is, the ones that have exhausted their unemployment benefits, are their numbers being counted? or are we only getting half the numbers for this? Because with the National Debt as big as it is, then what is truly being done to reduce it? The other thing that is not brought up is, a lot of people have taken part-time jobs, simply because the Companies do not want to pay for the Health care for these people anymore and our elected officials are letting them get away with it and then the people get fined if they have no insurance……… Seriously is this Country really better, or are we just getting more Lip service from our elected officials again and again.

We all want our five minutes of fame, we all want to be famous and be known for something great as well, but when it hurts all those around us,  you think there is a problem there, or more specific…….maybe their are way too many getting in each others way, instead of truly fixing what needs to be fixed. You can clearly see that what we are doing now is not working, so we need change and when I say change, I mean real change that is best for all involved. When you do take action, you don’t lean towards certain groups that are willing to pad the lining of your pockets with some extra cash, you take the necessary action needed to bring real change for the better of all throughout, so we all can prosper and be stronger moving forward.

This Country of the United States was always based on Immigration, but Immigration done correctly and when you see the word ” Illegal” before it, then maybe that is a clue that you are doing something wrong? With that said and given how the economy truly is, maybe it is time to shut the Borders for a short time, fix what you need to fix, so we can then move forward better and stronger, as freely as we can like our For-Fathers set up for us, instead of keeping the Borders the way they are and people coming here Illegally and stripping us of the true American Dream. I understand some want to come here for a better life like past Immigrants have done, so what is wrong with coming here correctly as those of the past have done? Plus when you walk your paths of this journey through life correctly, not only will you feel great and peaceful, but others around you will feel great and be at peace as well, with a bonus of, the United States of America can be great once again.

There are a lot of big issues that need to be addressed throughout our Society, with all the Lip service going on around us, there will never be any action of these issues. We also have to deal with this thing called ” Political Correction”, which is making us all weak and afraid to take any action of anything, for the fear of offending those around us. We within this Society have a lot of fixing to do and no time like the present to start the process of the true fix, the best way to do it is real change that involves, rolling up the sleeves and get ready to work, stop moving the Lips and start showing more action and become the solution, instead of the problem.

” if you want to talk the talk, then first you need to walk the walk”

” Lip service is for chatting to a Friend over the telephone, taking action will give you a feeling of accomplishment when you actually finish what you started”

” To fix the issues starts with taking action and being responsible, not being lazy and using lip service to say you will do something”

 

Trekking through the Wilderness

 

As we wake at the crack of dawn and get ready for what lies ahead in the days journey, we first take solace, listen and look at what is around us. We then put a couple logs on the hot coals from last nights campfire, so we can put on some coffee and make some breakfast to fuel our inner tanks for the coming journey. It’s a beautiful morning with the morning sun reflecting off the branches and landing in spots along the Earths floor, as I put the pot of water on the fire to heat up for coffee, I suddenly hear some crackling of branches in the distance from where I am, Hmm!!! What could it be as I thought to myself? I stepped away from the immediate area of the campsite and became one with the surroundings around me, as I waited for whatever was there to show their head, I continued to hear the crackling of the branches getting closer and as they got closer I knew whatever it was was bigger than a little Critter like a Chipmunk. I waited still to see what was out there and as I waited i could see the steam coming from the pot of water on the fire, signaling that the water was ready for the coffee, but I didn’t want to give away my location to what was there and stayed put for now. What seemed like eternity of a wait, was in reality about thirty minutes of waiting and then out of the brush comes this thin legged animal, maybe about 150 to 200 pounds, and had its head down sniffing all in its path, it was a Deer, a female Doe to be exact, what a beautiful site and to think she didn’t know I was there, as she hadn’t sniffed my scent cause the breeze was going in the other direction, so I sat there and watched as the Doe did its thing before it headed back into the thick brush of the Wilderness it came from. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful way to start the day, as you get ready to take on the days journey yourself.

We all walk our paths along this journey of life, true there are some things that will derail us along our paths, but there are many more beautiful things that will have us in awe as we walk these paths of this journey. unfortunately when we get derailed along our paths, we lose sight of what is in front of us and we don’t look deeply into what we see. Instead we wander out of focus until we address what we need to, so we then can continue forward and truly look deeply into all that we see.

You don’t have to be within the Wilderness to see any beauty at all, you simply have to look deeply into what you see, so you than can see beauty, no matter where you are, or whatever you are doing. True beauty is all around us everywhere, but unfortunately through all the ugliness and we ourselves not looking deeply into what we see from the parts of the path that derailed us, we never give ourselves a chance to see this beauty and move forward blindly, with no true direction of where we are going.

We trek through the Wilderness to see all of Natures beauty, but everything that is around us, is the creation of God and he created all this, so we all can see true beauty everyday, as we walk our paths along this journey through life.  This ugliness we see today is the creation of we the people of this Society and we the people can stop this ugliness, just by stepping back, viewing all that is around us and instead of just glancing at what is around us, look deeply into what we see, fix what we need to fix, so we to like the Deer can continue along the path, through this journey of life.

 

” Beauty is everywhere around us, we simply have to look deeply into what we see”

” Waking at the crack of dawn to some is unthinkable, but it is where we focus on the true beauty of what is around us”

” When we don’t fix what we need to fix, we then get derailed along our paths we walk, which then creates all the ugliness we see around us”
