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……….

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

God Bless America this 4th of July

See the source image

 

 

 

 

 

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”

 

 

 

 

Corruption is dirty, break out the soap

This rock face on this mountain at one time, was the home of a very famous face. A face that was well known throughout the world, even though it was kind of like  a stone face, that never took a breathe, The name of the stone face was the Old man of the mountain and you could only make out the face when, you look at the profile of the face, otherwise it was camouflaged and hidden within the rocks. You would think that this rock formation would stand the test of time?  But how quickly we forget, that through change all will come crumbling down and take on a whole different look.

Change not only  affects us, it also affects everything around us. Nothing ever stays the same, no matter how much we would want it too,. now some are very afraid to change, so they then embrace the comfortable rut for which they walk their paths through this journey of life.

Those within our Governments and who get voted into the office they hold, are the ones that not only fall deeply into their rut, but they resist any change for as long as they can. These men and woman within our Government when they become lost within their rut, they lose total sight of any kind of reality and they think that it must be their way or the highway, without any respect  for the ones that put them into their office in the first place. The job within the Government is not for themselves, it is also for every red blooded American throughout the entire country.

Now it seems pretty one sided that roughly 97% of all the Politicians are Lawyers, what are the Lawyers really good at……….. Lying, stretching the truth and the twisting around of the spoken word, or any words for that matter, so they than can get their way, over all that is around them. The Executives of the media very much the same, as they to are all Lawyers, get the theme here? This is totally the reason for all the corruption within all the walls of Washington DC. Now you have a Business man for President and all Hell is breaking loose within those same walls in Washington DC. Now the other issue is the media, as they won’t chat about everything that happens to best keep all of us within the reach of their drama, their half stories and their fake news, just to keep us spending our money into their pockets, so they can get richer and we get poorer.  All corruption is dirty, just that the ones that are corrupt, are the ones that can look clean, even without breaking out the soap, which being a lawyer, will help you chat up a story from a beat up piece of crap at the junk yard, to a Maserati $200,000 dollar vehicle. We need to end all this dirty corruption and if that means to totally change the walls within Washington DC, then so be it, but it needs to be done before it’ s too late and we still have a country to call home, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

 

” Corruption can’t be cleaned with soap, it needs us all to unite as one so corruption can go down the drain with the rest of the dirt”

” Change affects us and everything around us, which is why we need to embrace it and not rebel against it”

” The theme of the government is one sided and one way, being my way or the highway, time for true change with unity for true strength”

” Time to end the dirty corruption, so we all can look clean and not just a chosen few”

 

 

 

 

 

The Children among us***without feeling the love within their hearts and souls

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

 

When we look deeply within our hearts and souls and within the true beauty of this stump, you can see without question, the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with the crown of thorns still upon his head. Now quite simply because we can not see things like this is, we have become so far removed from the time that Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us. that we now let the clouds of our judgments control completely of who we truly are.

When the day comes that we can totally see God within ourselves and when, the day comes we can truly feel the love of Jesus deep within our hearts and souls, only then will all the hate and the attacking of one another disappear from all of our paths throughout this journey of life. The hating we see today as well as all the ugliness, is not of who we truly are, this is only we the people of this society, being cold to one another and not sharing the love of Jesus within us, with each other along this journey of life.

We all hear of all the border talks of the United States of America and all the Immigrants who are trying to sneak in here Illegal, plus all the talks of the families being torn apart at the borders? The one key word we need to focus on, to see clearly of what is truly happening is, ” Illegal”. When you do something of which you shouldn’t and totally try to take advantage of others, you clearly can not see past the clouds of your judgments. This is not just happening at the borders of America, it has been and for a long time, been happening all around the globe, just that we the people along with those within the main stream media, have turned a blind eye to it, simply because it doesn’t fit into their agendas to chat about it. We need to totally look deeper into ourselves, look deeper into what is around us, so we can clear the clouds of our judgments and get back in touch with our true selves, to truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, then not just feel the love, but share the love and the empathy with all that is around us, so we all can walk our paths in peace and joy always. There is still time to fix all that is wrong within this society, but we the people have to want to fix it, or this journey will just get rougher with every step we take.

The biggest thing we need to look deeply into is, Why are the ones all over the globe, trying to jump from one border to another and doing so the ” Illegal” way? Plus why are we letting all the children get lost in the middle within the clouds of our judgments? These innocent children are being exploited, taken advantage of, being objectified and being made a victim of, simply because we the people are only thinking of our selves and not the welfare of our children and their future’s. The children didn’t ask for this, nor did they volunteer for this, they are being used as a pawn, so other’s can flood us with the drama of their agendas and also, so the weak can hide behind them, instead of facing true reality and being of truly who they are. A lot of these children are of a young age and an age of vulnerability, they really do not know the difference between right and wrong yet, plus they look up to us as role models and when we lead them into uncertainty and deceit, now they then form in their minds that this is how life is, this is how you survive in this cruel world, which then leads them further away from Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within their hearts and souls. Which then has them continue this uncertainty and deceit as they grow older along their paths of this journey through life.

 

” The power of Jesus Christ is within us all, within our hearts and souls, in the form of true love and the feeling of true empathy to share with each other”

” The warmth we feel deep within our hearts and souls is the true love of Jesus Christ within us all”

” Every country has borders and yes we can cross those borders for a better life, but only done the correct way, so we all can be at peace and joy always”

” To do something Illegal you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing”

 

 

 

 

 

Drain the Swamp of Corruption.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

The Swamp of corruption isn’t of any body of water that needs to be cleaned up, it is all the branches of the government within the capitol of………..Washington D. C. The swamp is usually not pretty, full of muck and who knows what lies deep within the swamp? The swamp in Washington D. C. is full of money hungry, back stabbing, hypocrites. They will say what we want to hear so they can enter into the swamp, then as they get settled within the swamp, will then do the complete opposite of what they said and totally operate for themselves, forgetting about the ones who voted them in, to their nice plush office.

The Candidate Donald Trump said he would ” drain the swamp”, unlike those who are already in the swamp, the now President Donald Trump is doing as he said and totally draining the swamp. While all the people in the swamp have their hand out for all the kick backs, President Trump doesn’t need the kick backs, as he already has made more than any kick back that could be given to him. President Trump is a business man first, who is learning on the job, of what a Politician is and so far is doing a pretty dam good job. The establishment of his party can not control him, which makes him very volatile to them and very unpredictable to them as well. President Trump is a very sincere guy, who shoots from the hip, he says what he means and does as he says, which in the eyes of a Politician……….. Is very hard for them to not just deal with, but to read as a person for what his next move will be, now yes President Trump is a bit rough around the edges, when it comes to the way he speaks, but this is exactly what you get, when you deal with a person who does not believe in Political Correction.

Political Correction in a lot of ways has made us all weak, made us all not able to handle any kind of truth anymore, afraid to talk to anybody as we don’t want to offend anybody as well, it has isolated us from this World full of people, which has made us all afraid of any kind of conflict and has forced us into a safe cocoon, so we won’t be hurt by anything. We don’t cry anymore cause we don’t feel real pain and hurt, so we don’t let the tears heal us, so we than can fix what we need to fix, to move forward better and stronger, through this journey of life. Within this Society we look at crying as a sign of weakness, but on the contrary, it is a way to heal us, so we can be stronger along our paths of this journey. As we walk our paths of this journey, we don’t have to be the way of Political Correction, if only we simply be who we truly are, showing the love and empathy that is deep within all our hearts and souls, then share the love with each other, instead of attacking each other within the world of Political Correction.

President Trump said he would drain the swamp of corruption within Washington D. C. He is totally doing just that and all those corrupt people are running scared, cause they are so afraid of being outed, not too mention they don’t want to lose the good thing they have had for so long. Those within Washington D. C. have no clue of how to handle President Trump, just as all the media agencies also have no clue how to deal with him either, which is why they create so much ” Fake news”, instead of bringing us the real and truthful news. Fake news is what completes the agendas of all the media’s, so they than can fill our world with unnecessary drama, which is how they make their money and live their exotic lifestyles, while the rest of us, rub together two nickels to get a dime, not too mention the trying to take down a seated President, simply because he wasn’t the one they endorsed.

The time is now for each of us within this Society to “86” this political correct world we are in, grow up and walk our paths of this journey correctly, so we all can be at peace and joy with each step we take. It is a lot easier to to walk this journey correctly, it is very hard to keep up with the political correction, as we have to work everyday at it. Jesus Christ showed us all just how too walk this journey, he even died for us all at the cross, while he showed his love for each of us as well, we to can walk as Jesus did if we want to, only that right now we are all blinded by the clouds of our judgments, with no clear view of where we are going.

 

” The swamp Creature we have made, so we than can be as corrupt as corrupt can be”

” The business man will say what he means, as the Politicization of being correct will only have us all be a hypocrite to all our words”

” The President of the United States has a 24/7 job and is plenty hard enough, without having to worry about this fake political correct society”

” The political correct world around us now, is what’s killing the peace and joy from all our lives, only to bring the drama, hate and ugliness”
