As Technology advances, Privacy is no longer

a woman sitting on a bed: Hoan Ton-That, founder of Clearview AI, whose app matches faces to images it collects from across the internet.

This is the face of the Founder of a company called Clearview, he has created an app that takes facial recognition to an all-new level. Those pictures you share on your social media platforms……….. Well, let’s just say we all no matter where we are, can now be identified where ever we are in this world full of technology.

Privacy is not what it used to be within this society and as long as you have a computer and an online presence, then your privacy is no more, whether it is what you share, to what photos you put on your walls, to the IP address of your computer, which can be tracked to you from anywhere, then there are the scammers who spend big money, just so they can call you to harass and dupe you into giving up your very secret info, there is nowhere you can go today to avoid all this crap, unless you go totally off the grid and live as Grizzly Adams did, on the popular show called Grizzly Adams back in the ’70s.

We people of today think nothing of sharing things online, only because we take action without thinking through the ramifications of our actions, we will friend anybody on our Facebook just to increase our friend’s list and to look more important. When we go to work that is our Professional world and at home that is our personal world, but today we don’t distinguish between the two anymore, as now we friend everybody on Facebook just to look more important than we really are. We the people of this society are kind of like an addict looking for their next fix, as we get so addicted to what we think is the latest and greatest thing, that we will give up everything in order look more important than all those around us.

We have become so addicted to this world of social media, that we will give up everything including our privacy just so we can try to one-up each other, simply just look around as everywhere you look no matter where you are, there are many living on the streets and making an eyesore out of our neighborhoods as we know them. We all have become so engulfed within the world of greed, that there is way too many getting left behind never to be able to catch up and why is this? Simply because we want all the money and the power over each other and we do not care who we ruin to get it. this is a sad world we live in today, as we will stop at nothing to walk all over each other, we think that exposing another’s issues, then others won’t look at ourselves, I have a news flash people, we all have issues with some greater than others and with more pain and hurt that comes with it, but because of this dog eat dog world of today, we all have lost that true feeling that is within us all called empathy, as right now we truly could care less of each other, Ya I know some will try to make you think they care? That is only because they want to control you and everything around them, only because in their warped heads they are only thinking of themselves, so they can reap all the money and power that can reap.

 

” Never step on another man’s shine, as one day your own shine will become scuffed”

 

” Privacy is no longer private as social media has quietly stripped us of all our privacy”

 

” To go totally of the grid you first have to give up all of your technology devices as you will always have a location no matter where you are”

 

 

 

The night of light…………

” I am the light of the world, he who follows Me shall not walk in darkness”

John 8:12

 

” Jesus Christ came to us and was born at night, but it was a perfect time as it showed that with faith, even in the darkness the light of the world would shine at it’s brightest”

Bowlingchef

 

This month is the most special time of the year, true some will struggle very deeply this time of year, but when we have total faith in Jesus Christ and with a total understanding of what Jesus meant to us, the struggle will never last, simply because with huge faith in Jesus then through any darkness he will help us see the light of hope, to heal us from our iniquities, so we can move forward in the peace and joy that this special time of year will bring.

With each one of us, this time of year can and will bring a wide range of emotions, these emotions will do one of two things, it will have us shut down from all that is around us, or it will have us act in ways that we normally would not, our emotions are at their most fragile when our foundation has become cracked for whatever reason, now as we keep Jesus Christ close to our hearts, then he will help us heal in the proper way, he will help us overcome all our sins, so we then can focus on staying true to who we are, so as we move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger with each step.

There is no booklet to this journey as well as no set way to walk through this journey, but when we let Jesus in to warm our hearts and souls, then we can truly be of who we are, what a beautiful difference throughout this journey of life for each and every one of us, as we keep Jesus close to us by always having faith in him, to keep alive the hope so we can move forward in strength and happiness always. Now there are some who have lost the faith in Jesus as they don’t believe in his existence, which would explain all the lost hope in this society, these people called Atheist may have lost all faith in Jesus, but what is more deeper is the fact that their emotions are worn on their sleeves instead of within their hearts and souls in the name of Jesus Christ. With how screwed up this current society is, it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there are way too many that have lost faith in Jesus Christ, leaving this society with no hope moving forward.

Jesus Christ came to us and was born here on Earth at night, as the great north star lit the way for all to come view the new child of God. Jesus is the light that will guide us all from the darkness to the bright light of the path of righteousness and all we need is the true faith in him, as the hope for a brighter future moving forward becomes great. This is the most special time of the season and one that with good faith, can and will heal us all from our struggles, not just for this month but for all eternity as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With good faith in Jesus Christ, there will always be hope for us all moving forward”

 

” The light of the world is Jesus Christ and with faith not only will it gives us hope, but this light will heal us of all our struggles and get out of the darkness”

 

 

 

 

There really is no enjoyment on the road of fast track……..

 

We all within this fast-paced society take zero time to enjoy anything, instead, we get caught up within the pace and never really take the time to stop and enjoy all the true beauty that is around you. There are some within this society that will brainwash others by saying to them, you need to do it this way if you want to fast track into a financially stable life, but when that life never comes to fruition, we now become bitter to all around us without seeing any beauty in anything we may see. When driving your vehicle within the rush hour traffic, you have to focus on that traffic or suffer the consequences of not making it to work, as you become part of an accident, while within that traffic and focusing on the other vehicles in front of you, clearly can not focus on what’s around or suffer the consequences, all because we want that fast track of being financially stable. I get the fact that we all need to earn a living so we can afford all of our wants and needs, but while we earn that living do we really know of what we are totally missing out on?

Just like we all walk our own path through this journey of life, we also find our own career path so we can try to be as happy as we can and still enjoy all that is around us. Yes, there will be some that think they know what is best for us, there may be some that try to force us into doing something that we do not like, this is where all the bitterness in this society comes from, as well as the hatred and the dividing of each of us moving forward. What may be good for one, just maybe no good for another? We all want financial freedom and be able to buy whatever we want, the thing is the more we want, the more we totally forget of just what the simple life is all about. Then there are those who live way beyond their means and then when they get into trouble financially, they then want all others to bail them out and think that it is everybody else’s fault, instead of holding themselves accountable for their own actions.

We the people of this society are the ones responsible for all the bad blood and the corruption within our Governments, we vote these knuckleheads in because we buy what they are selling, without looking deeper into what they are selling, we let them sweet talk us and say what we want to hear, then piss and moan when they do not deliver on what they were selling. A Politician is nothing but a Lawyer and what a Lawyer is, they are someone who knows all the loopholes and how to get around the holes, plus twist around all the wording of the loopholes, to make them sound like the best thing since a steak on the barbeque. To totally help our current President completely drain the swamp of corruption within the walls of Washington DC, we first need to vote better and smarter, look deeper into what these knuckleheads are selling us, trust our instincts, so we then can take better action of putting into office the ones that totally deserve to be there and, the ones that can actually do the job for the betterment of us all.

There is so much more and so much beauty to this journey through life and it all starts with you and me, taking better action as we walk our path through this journey.  When we hold ourselves accountable for our actions, we then can hold each other accountable as well, as we now can set the example instead of being the example, so we all now can see all the true beauty all around us. Right now simply because some within the walls of Washington DC can not accept the fact that our current President beat out the candidate of their choice, have gone over to the dark side of politics and are so far in denial that they have lost sight of true reality, so now they are trying to impeach him on some made up and fictitious charges, when all they are really doing, is, wasting the money of all us hard-working taxpayer of this society. We totally need to see through all this corruption so, in the next big election, we all can look deeper into all what may be said to us by some, to make a better and informed vote, as we can get rid of the dead weight and put in some new blood, so just maybe we all can turn the swamp into a much more beautiful body of water.

 

” I believe in the two-party system, but when one of those parties are in deep denial with no sight of reality and the other has no spine?”

 

” We are all in danger on the thin  ice, but draining the swamp of corruption will help to keep us all from falling”

 

” There is plenty of beauty all around us we just have to actually take the time to not only see it but enjoy all that is around us”

 

 

Prayer can heal and there are no set guidelines to follow

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful”

Colossians 4:2

 

” It is good to give thanks to the Lord”

Psalms 92:1

 

Prayer is that Solemn place we can go to get away, meditate our minds, so we can get back in touch with who we truly are. Prayer is a silent message between you and the one who created you……… God the Father Almighty, as long as we keep the faith in him, there will always be hope as we move forward on our paths of this journey through life. Prayer may seem like some magic trick or something we just do when we keep the faith then the power of prayer gives us the hope to move forward better and stronger always and forever. There may be some who do not believe or even try to take this from all who may try, but if you do not believe is only because you never truly found that solemn place, nor have you given yourself the chance to have the faith, which leads to you becoming someone for who you truly are not.

Finding that solemn place can be done in many ways, you don’t just need to walk into the house of God once a week, it can be as simple as going into a room in your own house and closing the door, or maybe climbing a mountain not just for the breathe taking views or the posts on your social media platform, but to wander into places never before gone, to be alone with your thoughts, so you can cleanse your mind, body, and soul. True most of the time you will never get an immediate response, but when you keep the faith so you will always have hope, then you will always see the signs before you, as big as a billboard driving down the road.

The way this society is going with the Political Correction, socialism, the taking away everything that is important to all of us, like taking anything religious out of places of public, taking away anything that shows respect for the country in which you live, simply because you have no belief in something, doesn’t mean you have to spoil it for someone else. We all have our own beliefs and just because some may not have the same, does not give you the right to change for the sake of yourself, this practice only shows that you only think of yourself, you have zero cares for anybody around you and shows the lack of respect you have of your Peers, not too mention the fact that you have no hope for anything because of the lack of faith you have in the ” Power of Prayer”.

Prayer allows us to come clean and free ourselves of all chaos and the crap around us, it allows us to stay in touch with our true selves and when we stay true to who we are, then we will never see any hatred anywhere as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Prayer isn’t just about saying ” OH…….. I pray for this one or that one”, Prayer is for each one of us to cleanse our mind, body, and souls, so we can always be true to who we are, keeping to reality without being fake in any way shape or form. The power of prayer is so powerful, that it free’s us from all the crap so we can move forward with strength, but without the faith, you will never feel this power, as then you shall never have any hope for anything along your path, the faith, and the hope go together in this journey and you can not have one without the other.

 

” The power of prayer will heal you from all the ugliness, you just need the faith to have complete hope”

 

” Finding that solemn place can be anywhere that you find peace from all the crap, to be alone with your thoughts to heal your mind, body, and soul”

 

” In this day of all the technology devices and social media, it may seem hard to find that solemn place, but all you need is the faith then the hope will follow”

 

” Unplug from time to time as this will help us all stay true to who we are”

 

 

the thick dark clouds hovering over a society

camp cloutier

You see these dark thick clouds making the sky look dark and mean, these are the same clouds hovering over this society. These are the dark thick clouds that have we the people in the clouds with our judgments, the problem is that we have become so arrogant, so ugly toward one another, so engulfed within the hatred, that we clearly can not see any light, nor can we see clearly of any reality around us.

All you have to do is turn on any news station, or pick up any newspaper to read, both these publications go out of their way to print all the ugliness simply because it is what sells within this ugly society, these media companies have an agenda and they stick to it, the agenda is quite simple………. bring as much drama, ugliness and hatred you can, to further us more deeply within it. The problem is we let them suck us into it to the point we crave it and want more.

Just look at how our so-called leaders within our Governments and the way they are reacting to a seated President, their hatred of this President goes so deep that they not only can not do their jobs anymore, but they have become so far in denial that they have zero clue of what true reality is. Those of us who can see clearly as we walk this journey simply can see right through the corruption of these so-called leaders, we just have to vote better and smarter at the ballot box, so we can help President Trump truly drain the swamp, that has consumed all the walls and all the streets within Washington DC.

The corruption, the ugliness, and the hatred go a lot deeper than the walls of Washington DC, it is everywhere throughout this planet as we walk our paths through this journey of life, So it then lies within we the people of this society, to which we would rather ignore than to correct it. We have become so arrogant in our ways that our attitude is, ” if it does not affect me, then I don’t care”, well that’s the wrong attitude as you can clearly see where that has taken us? The time is now to end all this ugliness, the hatred, and the corruption and yes we the people when we stick together, can do just that, plus destroy all the fake news media in the process simply by ignoring all their publications, so they then wither away like a snake in the grass.

Hatred is learned as we have learned this attitude from somewhere, time to find the source of this hatred and unplug it completely, so we then can move forward along this journey being of truly who we are. As hatred is learned, love is within us and is totally natural, love is the true feeling that Jesus showed us as he walked his journey here with us, because of all the hatred, the corruption, and the ugliness, we have buried our feeling of love so deep within, that it is sitting idle as we can not feel it anymore, we need to resurrect this feeling of love, so we then can warm up our hearts and souls with it and get them out of the darkness and the cold. When we do this we then can bring the same warmth to society as we share it with each other. Through the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls, not only will it make this society peaceful and happy, it will end all the ugliness, hatred and the corruption that we the people let consume us greatly today. We all walk a path through this journey of life just as Jesus did, so let’s do it right, let’s do it as Jesus showed us, so we all can see the light clearly through any kind of clouds and reach the path of righteousness, which will make for a better society and one that is full of love with we the people within the peace and happiness we all so deserve, throughout this journey of life.

 

” We clearly see the dark thick clouds of the weather, so why can’t we see the dark thick clouds of all the ugliness around us”

 

” Let’s end all this hate, corruption and ugliness before it ends all of our existence through this journey”

 

” The media and the corrupt walls within Wahington DC are the problems, time we fix the problem and move forward not backward through this journey”

 

” Hatred is learned from somewhere, time to unlearn it so we can truly feel the love within our hearts and souls, then share it with each other”

 

 

The power of the healing, coming from the mountains around us

” Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous”

Luke 14:14

 

It is our own Ego’s that divide us so greatly, this ego we all have within us, but when we let it roam free without controlling it or ourselves, now we have a troubled society, full of troubled or bruised ego’s. Jesus died at the cross with nothing, which is how God wanted it showing that there is no place in this journey for humility, it is we the people that for some unknown reason find joy in the humiliation of each other. There are a beginning and an ending to this journey through life and when this journey isn’t traveled correctly, our ashes only become like dust in the wind, with zero repayments at the resurrection of the righteousness.
Through humility, it is hard to be humble, as humility brings ugliness and hatred. While being humble we then can show our love and empathy of each other, which promotes peace and happiness as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We all come from the same bottom at the beginning, however, it is our own ego’s that gets in the way of us walking this journey correctly. It is through our own ego’s we then become engulfed in the clouds of our judgments and think we are better than each other when we let our ego’s control of who we truly are, we are now heading down a slippery path of destruction, loneliness and plenty of hatred all around us.

 

The mountains offer us that peace and serenity, true that the mountains may come with some hard work as we hike from the bottom to the top, but whatever comes with hard work, is totally worth it as we walk our paths to be better and stronger. Even with all the hard work from the mountains, they offer us plenty of peacefulness, so we then can find that hidden inner peace we all have within us, that we have lost through this broken society. As we hike within the mountains and their peaceful beauty, we then can feel the ugliness and the stress from society become lifted off of our shoulders, this is the true healing of the mountains at work, this is the true beauty of this journey that we lose through this ugly society.

Moses hiked to the top of the mountain and received the Ten Commandments from God, which he then brought back to the people to read and follow, so they can also find that true path of righteousness this journey offers, but unfortunately through a society of controlling egos, we all think we are better than each other and only do as we want, which then leads us into not only a broken society but a society that becomes divided and going in the wrong direction. The mountains are a magical place, a place we can go to unwind and heal ourselves from the ugliness of society when you see the mountains as work, then you are not letting yourself see the true beauty of the mountains and you will never let the mountains heal you to be better and stronger as you walk your path through this journey of life.

Some may go to the mountains because of some social media page and then post a picture, this is not letting the mountains be the true healer it can be, as it is only feeding your own ego as the ego is then controlling you instead of you controlling who you truly are. when you let the mountains be as they are with their majestic beauty, then you will truly feel the power of the mountains and actually hear the voice of Jesus guiding you with each step. Some may see the mountains as one upper to each other, this is not what the mountains are, to truly feel the magic of the mountains and to truly hear the voice of Jesus Christ, you need to truly see the beauty of the mountains, become one with the mountain letting it heal you from all the crap of this ugly society, as the mountain heals you, then you can feel the weight of all the ugliness simply melt from your shoulders, the love of Jesus that is within us all will then be lifted from the darkness within us as well as the inner peace also, this transition will heal us from all the pain and suffering we encounter within an ugly society and if we all truly see the beauty of the mountains, then just imagine how society can change for us all to be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” That payment we receive at our jobs for our work is nothing compared to the spiritual payment we receive at the resurrection of the righteous”

” An ego is something we all have but when we do not control its power, then the ego will control us and all that is around us”

” The mountains beauty is the magical power of the mountain and a place we go to truly feel the power of the magic, as we heal ourselves from our pain and sufferings of an ugly society”

” Be one with the mountain feel the power of its magic as it heals you from your pains and the voice of Jesus is loud and clear”

 

 

 

A Broken Society

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Right now as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we are all part of this broken society. This tree has become broken as well, but by the looks of it may have been caused by a lighting, it is amazing though of how it fell and like, it stuck out it’s long arm, to break it’s fall, so as not too get hurt to badly. Now as the limb has snapped off this tree, true that will be the demise of the tree, it will be not repaired, to live on as healthy and strong, as it nonce did, but this society unlike the tree can be repaired and live on better and stronger, as it would take the biggest team victory, in the history of all team sports.

This society today is so divided and really for no good reason, as we are all so into ourselves, that we can not see clearly enough to see the divide. It pretty much starts with the fact of the two Political parties, one hand you have the Republicans and the other hand you have the Democrats, which whether you are an elected official or just an ordinary Joe of either party, we all think our views are the way to go and we will never come together to simply chat of these views to see really which view is best and which is just a crock of crap. not only are we all full of ourselves, in order to make out that our views are better, we will ram our views down each others throats, while saying the hell with your view it simply does not count. Then there is the denial factor, as through this denial, we not only have these warped sense of views, but we will not only “not listen” to anybody else, only because our lies have become truths to even ourselves.

All this divide thing has started many years ago, but most recently with the regrets and the not excepting of an Individual winning the election of the most highest office on the land, then the disrespect of the symbol of this country, by Individuals being paid big money to play a simple sport, to most recently a member of our country’s world cup soccer team showing disrespect of that symbol as well, then there are those out there protesting and as they protest, they have zero clue of what they are protesting, except the fact that others are out there with the same zero clue. Everybody wants their five min. of fame, but to go out and protest just to simply be out there with no clue of why, is no way to achieve that fame, as it will only make you look stupid to the rest of us, as we laugh to no end at you.

There are these three Freshman Congress woman, which I have no clue of how they got voted into office in the first place, maybe people of their district were paid to vote that way? But anyways these woman have done nothing but bring even more divide to the rest of the walls of Washington DC as well as the rest of us in this country. There are also some members of the house and senate that have been there way too long and they have gone over to the dark side, in other words they have gone to the far left side of the liberal agenda, to the point that they have lost all sight of true reality. These so called officials within Washington DC are so blinded by their own stupidity and lies, that they can not even listen to the voice of reason, let alone anybody’s else’s voice of who may be around them.

Have you ever walked the streets of a big city lately? Everybody has their heads buried so deep into their phones, it amazes me that they even have a clue of where they are going, let alone pay any attention of who else is around them, nobody gives each other the time of day anymore, as we have become a society of arrogance as well as a society of divide. With all this division we all want…..want…….want……., but seriously……. we all can not get what we want, unless we actually give to get the want. Forest Gump said it best, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are getting”, this journey through life is very similar and when you just simply be who you are, even then you do not know what you are getting with each step of your path.

 

” When something gets broken you first decide if it can be fixed, then you work on the fix of that something”

” A divided society is a broken society, leading to everybody not being on the same page Nor will we bend over backwards for each other”

” Two political party’s are not in place just to argue and bicker with each other, they are there to keep ourselves honest not only with ourselves, but with each other”

Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

Be prepared and ready for all that may cross your path

a pile of snow with a mountain in the background: APTOPIX Everest Death

The World’s highest peak that is mount Everest is a mere 29,029 feet, but what is even more important is the death zone of that mountain, the zone where you need to be prepared and totally know of what you are doing is 26,000 feet, at the death zone elevation is where anything can happen and you need to be hyper-vigilant of your surroundings at all times, not too mention what is happening to yourself in the way of elevation changes as well. There is no messing around hiking this mountain and at no time, should this mountain be used as a conversation piece to brag to others that, ” I have done something you haven’t”. even those in the most tip top shape have struggled hiking this mountain, simply because the elevation is the biggest factor in being totally prepared to hike this mountain.

Hiking this mountain and being above the 26,000 elevation mark is, kind of like a diver in the ocean going below a certain depth, the diver gets what is known as the Bends, when he surfaces he then has to get within a decompression chamber to decompress from the ” decompression sickness”, from ascending to quickly, even with the oxygen or the nitrogen in their tanks they still get this sickness, which is something that nobody climbing mount Everest even thinks about when they climb the worlds highest peak.

Right now the deaths on mount Everest is at an all time high and the Government of Nepal is not even thinking of making any changes to the rules? Right now if you show up with the $11,000 they will issue a permit to you, without even checking your mountaineering skills, or even the health condition of your present self, it is like all things today and about the money, especially for the small country of Nepal looking to survive within today’s world.

I put the blame squarely on all the social media platforms out there and the fact that people hike within areas without being totally prepared, just to gain a bigger presence on these platforms with more followers. Let’s look at a page on Facebook for instance, this page is called I hiked the 4,000 footers club in New Hampshire, this page has people posting pictures and bragging of their hike, with a lot of these hikers, not wearing the proper foot gear, or even carrying the proper equipment to be ready for whatever they may encounter, let’s go one step further here and the fact that, there is not enough adequate parking for all, so they park on the side of an interstate highway, just so they can put pictures up on their Facebook page or whatever social media platform they are using. Hiking anywhere within the white mountains of New Hampshire you need to be prepared for anything, especially the sudden changes in the weather, it can and will snow on the top of mount Washington in the summer and when you can’t find the trail because of the snow, then you need maybe a compass and even be able to see where you are just by looking at the sky, or just maybe remember your surroundings for the return trip. I noticed on my hikes a lot of times, people are looking in front of them for a trail marker and not looking at what is around them? What happens if that marker is not there for whatever reason? What do you do then? When you are above the tree line you see a pile of rocks, what are they? And what are they called? They are Carns and they mark the trail for you to follow.

This picture of the people climbing mount Everest, what is the biggest problem of this picture? If you said the line of people and being way to close to each other, you are 100% correct, because if one of them misstep and fall, now you have a domino effect of all going down and with the cliffs on both sides……………. Well with common sense you can see what is going to happen there. Even with the oxygen they are breathing from the tanks on their backs, that is still not enough at the altitude they are in, then you add in the fact that, when these people get to the top they want to take a ” selfie” and most definitely, they want people to see who they are in the picture, so they then take off the mask of oxygen for the picture, but they don’t realize that, even the seconds that the mask is off, is seconds to long at that elevation. Your body at that elevation is already changing and parts of the body is shutting down, because we are not cut out for this type of rigorous endeavor, no matter how much in shape you think you are? Just like all the deaths happening on mount Everest, there are deaths happening in the white mountains of New Hampshire, simply because people are embarking on these hikes without being properly prepared, for what ever might cross their paths, whether it’s the proper foot gear, to enough water to stay hydrated, or even the proper snacks for protein, or even carrying the right gear in the pack, just in case your stuck in a weather condition that changes drastically, no matter what the hike, you need to be well prepared and ready for anything that you may encounter along your path, of any journey you embark on.

” Be prepared is the biggest of the Boy Scout’s motto and something we all need to adhere to within the journey of life”

” A traffic jam of people on the worlds tallest peak, is something that should never be and dangerous for all stuck within the traffic jam”

” Just because you have $11,000 should never be all it takes to hike the worlds tallest peak”

” Social media platforms are being used in a way they were never designed to be used, because we the people misuse everything we touch without thinking through the ramifications of our actions”

From cool, to beauty, to fury………..

Close Encounters of the third kind? More like Close Encounter with Mother Nature is more like it. Yes these clouds are cool looking, but they truly show how, that Mother Nature can go from total beauty, to total destruction in the blink of an eye. Never cross Mother Nature as she can totally unleash her fury on everything around her and nothing will stop her.

I have hiked Mount Washington in New Hampshire many times and with those times, I have seen as well the true beauty that mountain holds, plus all the different weather conditions that cruise over the summit of the mountain. Those weather conditions are the actions of Mother Nature flexing her muscles, changing the landscape of the Earth, by washing and cleaning all that we see and all that is around us. A lot of the change that comes to us, as we walk our paths of this journey, comes directly from Mother Nature, those Tulips you planted from a seed in your garden and are now in full bloom as a beautiful flower, that is directly from Mother Nature, as she has watered with the tear drops from heaven, or for you and me, the rain that is raining upon the Earth during the month of April.

Mother Nature is full of many changes all around us, some come with great destruction, as well as some with the soft touch of love, showing her true beauty to us all. When you get out and explore all that Mother Nature has in store for us, you can come to appreciate all that is around you better, so when you see the destructive part of Mother Nature, you than can come to respect her just as well, knowing that in an instant, all that you have can be wiped clear, as you then start anew, along your path of this journey through life.

Just as Mother Nature can flip that switch of being so beautiful one minute, we to can flip that same switch the next minute and as we see what we see around us today, you can clearly see we have lost control of that switch, with all the ugliness and hatred around us, which is similar to the wrath of Mother Nature, unleashing that beauty into an all out fury, on whatever is in her way, we do the same thing on each other and we don’t even know we are doing it, until we wake up and realize of what we are doing. The actions of mother nature and the actions of each of us, are all part of this journey, we just have to know when to get out and explore all that is around us, so we than can have a deep respect for what is around us, without not truly seeing and feeling what is around us, then taking an action of destruction, instead an action of love, showing the true beauty that is truly around us.

” The beauty is right there in front of us, we need to get out and explore to truly see it”

” The many faces of mother nature, just like the many faces of each of us”

” Mother Nature knows when to unleash her fury as she washes and cleans all that is around us”

” Unlike mother nature we have lost control of that switch, which we can clearly see by all the ugliness and hatred all around us”
