New England Patriots……….( do your job)

Slide 2 of 18: FOXBOROUGH, MA - JANUARY 13: Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots talks with Erik Walden #93 of the Tennessee Titans during the second quarter  in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Gillette Stadium on January 13, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

TB12 the brand……… Tom Brady is one of those kind of Athletes that doesn’t come around all that often, much like Micheal Jordan in Basketball, or Bobby Orr in hockey, These Individuals defy the odds, rewrite the record books and come with more raw talent, then even they themselves are surprised by their greatness, but yet ask them of their greatness and they will never admit to any of their success, only praising their teammates, for helping them with their success.

Tom Brady may be the Quarter back and player for the New England Patriots, but he would be nothing without a great leader or Maestro of the orchestra, a person that is so brilliant in not just looking at football as a game, but taking it too the next level, always being three moves ahead of his opponents and treating the game on the field just like a chess game, with each position of the chess board being strategically placed, to keep that competitive advantage, plus making sure each of the players buy into the, ” Do your job” mentality.

Now you can’t have a great quarterback or a great coach, without a great Owner, someone who is just as dedicated and competitive as the coach and quarterback tandem. The Owner is where it all starts and not just an owner that invests in a team to make good on his investment, but an owner that turns his investment into a gold mine for many years to come, with many generations reaping the benefits and joy of his investment.

With Robert Kraft…….. Yes it is true he is a very successful Business man, yes he has a lot of wealth and can afford many exotic things, but he is also a man who is still in touch with where he has come from, he also had season tickets to the Patriots, back in a time where winning games were far and few between, so he knows through experience, just how we true Patriot fans have suffered til now. Bob Kraft is one of the greatest owners of all sports and as a business man, he has surrounded himself with the smartest of football minds, which has turned the New England patriots into a very successful organization.

The best move the Kraft’s have made was, bringing in Bill Belichek. This man has become one of the game of football’s all time best coaches and by best, I mean more like a genius in understanding the game inside the game. His philosophy to the game may seem high tech to most, but to those who understand, it is actually very simple like just, ” Do your job”. Now the so called sports Media may not like him or his press conferences, simply because they can’t get that much info from him, or made too look just as stupid, with each stupid question they ask him, but if you ask me? The so called sports Media totally gets what they deserve, as they try to look smarter than the smartest coach within the history of the NFL.

Then there is Brady? call him what you want, but there is no denying him the title of, ” The Greatest of all Time……….the G. O. A. T”. This is a guy that was drafted so far down in the draft, no other team wanted to give him a chance and seriously! look at him now, not too mention of just how jealous some players may be of him, to the point where they have to say fake things or make things up to try to knock him off his game? I got news for you!!!  When there is ice in your veins, it is very hard to be rattled, or to be taken out of focus, not too mention when you are as competitive as Tom Brady, you not only try to be as perfect as you can be, but you also look for perfection in all those around you. We have seen Brady lose it on the sidelines and the so called media try’s to spin it as Tom is far from a team player, Huh!!! If only they knew that this is the fuel that feeds his competitive fire, when things in the game aren’t going as planned, yes he may get a bit vocal, but this is only his competitiveness that is trying to light a spark underneath his teammates, so they can wake up and play as they have been coached during the long hard practices.

Say what you want of the New England Patriots, but what I say is, ever since Bob Kraft bought this team, he has not only made good on his investment, he has turned a sports franchise around, where the winning environment around town has become so infectious,  that the other other pro teams in town, are doing what they can in their sports, to be like the New England Patriots. Not everybody can be like the Patriots, just like their is only one Bob Kraft and I am happy that I can enjoy the fruits of his labor, while the Patriots keep winning not only games, but Championships year after year.

” What I say to the other teams is, ” if you want to be a champion” then step up to the plate and beat a champion”

” The competitive fire is within us all, but unless you unleash it, you will never experience being great at what you do”

” The great owner/the great coach/the great quarterback, call it what you want, but without these as the main ingredients, you have nothing to build greatness around you”

” Instead of hating on a champion, then step up to the plate and beat the champion”

” Say what you want of the Patriots but what I say is,  We are experiencing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride while it lasts”

The Thrill of Victory……or the Agony of Defeat

IMG_20150104_124946

To honor the late Stuart Scott and to pray for all those who suffer this dreaded disease, plus with Breast cancer awareness this month, I thought this great quote could  rise once again. Stuart worked for the sports station ESPN for a long time, before this dreaded disease, finally took him from us. This quote by him was said during the yearly Espy awards, which he was honored with the lifetime achievement award. What makes this quote so great is, the fact you can tweak a few words and the quote takes on a whole new meaning.

Take out the first line and replace it with, ” To win playing the sport for which you love”, now you have a quote that will always live throughout the test of time, There are a lot of good quotes out there, what makes a quote great is, the tweaking of a word or two, giving the quote a whole new meaning, to inspire us as long as we walk a path through this journey of life.

Nobody ever wants to go through the Agony of defeat, but in able to experience the thrill of victory, you first have to be able to lose correctly, then you can respect the win, with a feeling of  pride.  True competition is missing within the World of sports today, it has been replaced with the feeling of ” I play for me so I can be rich” Yes sports today has become ” the world of Greed”, as the loyalty for players sticking with one team, just isn’t there anymore, then you have the owner’s of the teams dishing out big bucks to bring in certain players with good talent, so they can win Championships. True winning of Championships goes a lot deeper than buying a team, true winning of Championships gives you a feeling that is second to none, when it comes to having pride at what you do and when you learn to lose correctly, you then respect the winning, all day everyday.

With all the Hatred and the Ugliness that has consumed us all today, maybe a little theory here. that could be quite possibly the culprit of all the negativity? Sports is supposed to unite us as one, so we can be a Champion at whatever we want to do, but instead of uniting us, it is dividing us, with all the greed there is to be had, for playing a simple game, of whatever sport you chose to play. Then when you win multiple Championships, now others become jealous and will hate, just because you win all the time, now when you play a sport you love and you become great at it, others then get jealous and whine at every chance they get.  Is this fair treatment of each other? Absolutely not, Although if you want to try to be the best you can at whatever sport you play, then work hard, in becoming the best you can within the sport you love.

There is only one player today that plays his sport for the love of the game, has true loyalty for the team of which he plays for and isn’t in it just to get a fat pay check, Tom Brady is that player, he has only played for one team and brought that team five championships. so instead of other teams trying to dethrone the champs, they then take the easy way out and drive a wedge of hatred into the sport, which then divides further all who play the sport.

Sports when played the right way, brings us all together in Unity, players who play a sport for the love of the game, instead of the fat paycheck, then become role models to the young that watch them and then, try very hard to be like their role models, so they also can play a sport for which they love.

 

” The agony of defeat is what gives you the good feeling of the thrill of victory”

” Some quotes are a dime a dozen, but a great quote will always be priceless”

” Play a sport for the love of the game and unite all that are around you, instead of being consumed by greed and dividing the sport you play”

” Sports is supposed to be called the great unifier, but instead they are known as the great divider with all the hate and the ugliness”

 

united we stand………..Divided we fall

Such a beautiful bird on so many levels, this is the American Bald Eagle, a symbol of this great country of America. A big powerful bird that flies through the sky so free and with the greatest of ease. As beautiful as this bird is, we in this Society are part of the beauty this bird holds, right now we are a broken Society in need of a major fix, we are so divided in this country, we clearly can not come together for the good of all who walk their path of this journey through life, within this great country of America.

In order for us all to come together it all starts with the so called leaders, who we the people have elected to lead us. These Individuals are so consumed with themselves, they clearly can not see clearly enough to come together, for the good of all the people within this country. The issue of healthcare for all needs so badly to be done for the people, but yet our elected officials can not come together, because they are letting not only their unclear views get in the way, but they are letting the special interest groups control everything for which they are.  The American people voted you in to do a job, it is time you live up to what the American people want and ” do your job”. If we the people did our jobs as you did, then we would be fired from our jobs, what makes you any different then we are?

Then there is the so called Media that right now are a big part of the ugliness that surrounds us today, these Individuals I can’t even call a Journalist anymore, cause they can not even write the truth anymore. These Individuals are so consumed with their drama ridden agendas, they to can not do their jobs properly anymore, they are more concerned with the ratings and putting greed into their pockets, they have forgotten the simplicity of putting two words together to make sense, let alone trying to bring together we the people in unity, throughout this great country. Now with social media, there are so many avenues for the media, but yet there is no one that knows how to drive properly on these avenues. to even try to make sense, let alone put together words to make sense with. Don’t get me wrong there are still some great Writers out there, just that they have become hidden within all the fake Writers, who want nothing, but rob us all of our hard earned money.

I get the fact of the idea behind the 1st Amendment, I truly believe we all need a voice and to get our feelings out, to help us heal when we need be, but to do so in a way, that does nothing but shove your opinions down the throats of the rest of us………… that is not the way the 1st Amendment is supposed to work. We all have a right to this Amendment, not just a chosen few, which is the reason why we so badly,  need to get back to truly respecting one another and doing so from the heart, not just superficially or hiding from behind your technology device.

What happened yesterday within the National Football League was nothing but  disrespect in every way……… okay there was some good to it, but the bad so much out weighed the good and showed without a doubt, that we are a broken society, in need of a fix. The biggest thing of this that we need to address is, these players are getting paid huge amounts of money to play a game, but yet they chose to disrespect a symbol that many have died fighting for, so they can make their huge amounts of money and buy many things, that the ordinary hard working American can not afford. The game you play is on a stage, that these ordinary people buy a ticket to watch, you as a player are on that stage to perform for us, not to disrespect a symbol that we all are suppose to respect, showing pride and thanks to the many brave men and woman that have died fighting for. The first Amendment helps us all with a voice, to help us bring out our feelings to heal, not too disrespect, so we all can be better and stronger, as we all move forward along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” When we truly stand united we are at our strongest, when we are divided we are at our weakest”

” The first amendment is for us all to have a voice, to get out our true feelings and to heal moving forward”

” We need to be smarter, show more love and empathy of each other, to end all this hate and ugliness of today”

” The American Bald Eagle is a great symbol for us here in America, it shows freedom and strength without all the drama we the people have shown”

 

Take a knee…… make that two and pray for forgiveness

” The crown of Jesus Christ is everywhere, we just have to look more deeply into what we see, to truly see it”

***Bowlingchef***

 

Let’s think about this for a minute, time to end all the crap, end all the unnecessary drama, stop this epidemic within the NFL of taking a knee, especially doing so of a symbol that is dedicated to all the men and women that have died for the country of the flag you disrespect. You play a game in which you are paid big money for and now that you mention it, you definitely are not worthy of the contract you signed.

Maybe we all should take two knees and kneel before God and ask for his forgiveness, for the way we have taken his creation and turned it into this ugly Society today. God is definitely  not happy with us and all the fighting, bickering and the disrespect of one another needs to stop, so we all can move forward in peace , to be better and stronger as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

RESPECT………is the word of the day and if you can’t show it, than please stay home and don’t associate with those that do. Now I don’t mean being respectful to the face of others and then stabbing them in the back when they turn away from you, I mean being respectful from the heart and doing so, cause you have a love for all those around you. Those that disrespect the Flag and the national Anthem of this country, should seriously go to foreign soil with our troops, sit within a fox hole with them, as live fire goes over head and so close, that it not only buzzes your ear, but makes your hair stand up on top of your head, not too mention that you can’t get up to go to the bathroom or even cook a meal for yourself. This is what our troops go through, not just for us back here in this country, but for the good of all, that walk a path through this journey of life.

Respect is a two way street, if you want me to respect you, than you need to respect me back and not superficially, but from your heart as I would you. I get the meaning of the first amendment in this country, but there are some that have twisted around what it truly is all about, not only to fit their agendas, but to shove their opinions down your throat, then cry when  you do back at them. We are blessed here in America, to have some from the past, put together these Amendments and the Declaration of Independence for us, so we can walks our paths better and stronger than they did. We are also blessed over the history of this country, to have many brave men and woman, that have fought and died fighting for not only of what they believe in, but have died fighting for all of who that walk a path of this journey, within this great country of America and beyond. Time we all start not only showing our respect back at them, but showing more respect toward one another, as well as showing more love and empathy as well.

Jesus Christ came to us and not only walked this journey with us, he also taught us many things, he showed us how to walk our paths correctly, so we can find that path of righteousness, which is full of peace, happiness and love. The way we are going within this Society, is not only disrespecting each other, it is also disrespecting Jesus Christ and everything he taught us during his journey with us. It is never to late to make things right in the eyes of God, he will forgive us for all we have done, all we need to do is, instead of taking to one knee in protest, let’s take to two knee’s and pray for God’s forgiveness, so we all can get back on track, get back our love of selves and those around us, get back the respect we lack today, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, not just as Jesus showed us, but to truly feel his love within our hearts, then share this love with each other. Then as we do this, we all can walk in peace and happiness always throughout this journey.

 

” Respect is a two way street, the time is now to drive properly on the street so we all can see the true beauty that is in front of us”

” It is true that the 1st amendment gives us the right to voice our opinions, but not the right to shove them down our throats”

” Instead of taking a knee and disrespecting, lets take two knee’s and kneel then ask for God’s forgiveness”

” We have all lost our way along this journey through life, the time is now to ask God for forgiveness and find our way back to the path of righteousness”

 

Change for spite really brings on negativity with bad results……..

ESPN is a sporting news channel that, when it first surfaced it was a great source for all your sporting needs, with scores and highlights of all the teams within each sport, plus deliver to you, of just how your favorite team did, right at your finger tips. Although now…………. This sporting news agency has become like all the other news agencies and has gone so far to the left, that what they say and do, is nothing but creating more and more drama, in this already drama ridden Society, for which we live. Now because one of their sportscasters has the same name as a Confederate General, is no reason to pull him from one area of telecasting a team and placing him somewhere else. Come on ESPN!!!!!! Go back to what you at one time did great and that was, reporting all the sporting news and scores, for us all to see, when we were too busy or working, to see any of our favorite games.

Just maybe it is time for we the People to start Boycotting any and all of these types of news agencies? With all the ugliness and the crap we see around us today, we need not look no further than all the news agencies, bringing us the news and filling us with more drama, as they not only fill their pockets with Greed, but bring us way too much drama, just to keep their agendas going. I mean really!!! Look at X-Infinity or formerly Comcast, this cable provider has such a big monopoly, that they just keep going up on the price of their service and really giving nothing back in return that really warrants the up rise in price, the problem here is we the People keep paying for the service, instead of going with another option, or simply getting rid of it all together? True without cable then we won’t have as many channels to surf or to choose from, but in the old days, there was an antenna  on the roof, hooked into your television set and we watched whatever came into our TV’s. Now with all the cable channels, watching a simple television show, has become all about greed as well, so all these cable companies can rob us further, of our hard earned monies.

With cable today and all the different stations to choose from, unfortunately we have to weed out the crap and keep searching for the good channels we know and like, these stations especially the news stations will do nothing but bring us more drama then we care for, they all have their agendas and will stop at nothing to keep their agendas going, just to try to keep us all addicted to the drama and tuning in to get more drama.  Right now all these stations have all the power and control, simply because we let them have it, so we can keep our addiction going of receiving of this drama.

Now there is an epidemic running through the NFL, with players not standing for the National Anthem of this great country, The United States of America……….. Really!!!! With the many that have fought and died, just so you can get paid big money to play a sport and this, is how you show your respect for them?  Respect goes both ways and when you show disrespect, then disrespect is what should be showed back at you. I understand we have what is called ” Freedom of Speech”, I understand we all need to stand up for what we believe in, but when you do so within a game you are being paid big money to play and when you do so, during the National Anthem of the country you are in, playing your sport, that shows nothing but disrespect for the Men and Woman, who have fought hard and have died, so we all can be free in this country and you the player, can play the sport you love and for big money as well. Maybe it’s time we all start using our brains more, maybe it’s time we start standing up for what we believe yes………. but do so in a smart way, by not only picking our battles, but by picking the correct venue to stand up properly for what we believe. There is way to much drama in this Society we live, I think we all should limit the amount of the drama and one way to do that is, limit the amount of the sources that bring it to us, limit the amount of the television for which we watch, or maybe just watch more informational television, like the History channel or the National Geographic channel? Then we can actually learn more, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” When we change things out of spite is not the way to true change and will only further the ugliness and the drama always”

” Respect goes both ways and is never a one way street”

” X-Infinity or Comcast, has built such a big monopoly  it has become lost at their true service for each of us”

” Before you take that knee at the singing of our National Anthem, remember first the Men and Woman who have fought and died for you and I to be free within this great country”

” Respect…Dignity…Trust…Values, these are just a few words that truly have a meaning and help us all coexist with one another”

 

True Leadership qualities……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

What makes a great Leader? We all tend to link being a leader with power and control, we get caught up in the mix that, Leader’s have to be in high positions, like, the President of a country, a CEO of a corporate company, or maybe an Owner of a sports team to name a few. Some of the greatest Leaders do so quietly with no fan fare, or looking for any kind or recognition.

Everybody has their own kind of Leadership ways, just that we don’t give ourselves enough credit for the way we Lead, we also don’t tap into our souls enough and try to find a Leadership role that best suits ourselves. Not all of us are suited to be a true leader and not all of us can be a Leader, as in the old saying, ” to many chiefs spoil the tribe” or ” to many Chef’s ruin the soup”. You don’t find a true Leader, as True Leader’s simply rise to the role with their actions and not their words.

Look at a guy like Tom Brady, the best Quarter Back in the history of the NFL. He doesn’t look to be more powerful or above the rest of his Teammates, he just shows up in practice and works hard each and every day, then executes that hard work on Game day. He shows his Leadership on the field, while he brings his team into the lead, to move forward with a “W” in the win column. All his Teammates adore him, cause he is so humble and approachable by all. Tom also gives advice to his Teammates, instead of saying ” do it this way or you won’t touch the football”. Okay it is true you may see him loud and yelling on the side lines on game day, but he does so only to wake up the team, so they can execute better, giving the team a better chance of winning the game.

A true leader leads by example, without losing the respect of those they try to lead. Raymond Bourque of the Boston Bruins was another great Leader, even though he wore the “C” on his jersey, it didn’t mean anything to him, as he showed up everyday practiced and played hard, so when his Teammates saw that, they to practiced and played hard, making the whole team a better team moving forward. Ray was a quiet guy that stayed out of the limelight, but with his actions on the ice, that is what spoke much louder than any words at all. Bobby Orr was the same way as he also let his actions speak for himself, they didn’t want to be singled out as a special player and they always spoke of the team/ put the team before themselves all the time.

True Leader’s never look for any fame or recognition, they never look to be more powerful than or even try to have all the power over the rest. A true Leader at the end of the day goes home like you and I and does his chores, like the rest of us. A Leader that we all take for granted and never give enough credit to, are our own parent’s. these Individuals help you grow in many ways, they show you by example on how to treat other’s, they guide you as you walk your path of this journey through life, they don’t just love you deeply and they don’t just quietly lead you on your path, they teach you all they know, as they to were led by their Parent’s, as they walked their paths through this journey of life. Parent’s don’t look for any recognition or any spotlight, they never look for any rewards, all they want is to lead you into prosperity, so you can be the best you can be, as you walk your path through this journey of life.

 

” A true Leader is a rare breed and never looks for any recognition or fame”

” A real and true Leader, leads by example and never pushes his power on to another”

” Leadership is never about power and control over other’s, as a true Leader knows how to make others better moving forward”

” True Leaders let their actions speak more loudly than themselves, making all around them feel even more special then the Leader himself”

 

The sun shines over the City of Chicago

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

With the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series last night and being seventy one years since they have even been on the big stage, plus not winning it for one hundred and eight years, this win is bigger than even the sport of baseball itself.

They say it was the curse of the Goat? I understand the whole story of a person bringing their pet Goat to the games, then being told not to bring the Goat anymore, but seriously, you think a Goat had to do with a team not winning a Championship in over a century? Same thing with the Great Babe Ruth and the trade that had him leaving the Boston Red Sox, to the New York Yankees, then the Red Sox not winning a World Series in Eighty six years? We all can believe what we want to, as we are all unique to each other with our own minds, but to make an excuse over a curse for not winning a Championship, I think we need look deeply into what we see, instead of making an excuse for everything around us.

The Fans of the Chicago Cubs is what this win is all about, as it was the Fans that were caught between the team and the Ownership of the team and being being deprived of what other teams and their Fans have accomplished. It is the Fan that shows up. pays a fee, so they can watch their team win, it is the Fan that roots very loudly for their favorite players of that team, but when the Owner’s don’t pay for the right players (for which the fan pays for), now the Fan has no one to root for. Yes your going to have those die hard Fans that no matter what, will still pay and root for a team, even if they don’t truly know of who they are rooting for. Instead you have the Owner’s becoming more greedy and taking advantage of the die hard Fan, just to line their pockets with more money, so they can live their plush exotic lifestyles.  When you don’t spend the money wisely and get the right player’s for the team and for the Fans who have been loyal to you, you will be the next Chicago Cubs or the Boston Red Sox.

When you want to model yourself after a good Owner, you need to look no further than Bob Kraft of the New England Patriots. He was a Fan of the team before he was an Owner and when he became Owner, he then put the best Management around him to build a great team. then through the Management they went out and got the right players that not only fit the Patriot way, but that would gel together and give the Fans what they have paid for, as they spend a lot of money to enjoy a game on any given Sunday. Now with the Patriots and the last fifteen years, you can clearly see what building a great team will do, as they win more than they lose and through winning, makes it fun to not only play the game, but makes it fun to pay and watch the game as well. Now with the winning part, you will also gain some Hater’s that will try to bring you down with words, this is just that words……..That show nothing but hatred of their own team, cause their Owner’s don’t step up to the plate and reward their Fans with a winning team.

Yes I do congratulate the Chicago Cubs and their player’s for winning the World series, but I congratulate their Fans even more, as now they can see what winning is all about and how winning and sports can affect a whole region for the better. Players like Jon Lester and David ross who are the older guys on the team and have won it all before, both came from the Red Sox, as did Theo Epstein the General Manager also, these are the guys that brought their experience and winning nature with them, as they infected the Fans around them throughout Chicago. Theo was the one that was brought in by the owner’s to give the Fans what they have needed for a long time and finally reward the Fans with this great victory and not just a victory, but a World Series Championship.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, some may get a chance to bask in the glory of this journey, while others simply just walk their path in the clouds of their judgments. Sports and our everyday lives when they come together in harmony, like last night in Chicago, helps us all have a look at the glory part of this journey and can help us all become better and stronger moving forward. True everything has to line up completely, but when they do it is the most beautiful part of this journey through life and is what makes us all walk with confidence, to be better and stronger along our paths throughout this journey.

 

” The Chicago Cubs have finally found success in the sport of baseball, as the Fans have finally been rewarded for their time and money spent”

” This team of the 2016 World series Champs the Cubs, will be forever enshrined in the history of the city of Chicago”

” They say winning cures all, but you can’t win without the right players around you”

” It takes a knack to get the right players for your team, as Theo Epstein and Bill Belichek have perfected that knack”

 

Oppression has no boundaries

Creek

” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed”

 

*** Luke 4:18

 

” This stream flows along it’s path within it’s boundaries, as it shares all the land around it with all the other Vegetation”

 

*** BowlingChef***

 

Within this Society of today, the ones that are truly Oppressed move forward quietly as to not bring attention to themselves, yet there are others using a sport that they play as their platform and then disrespect a flag, that men and woman have fought hard to protect, so these Individuals can make their millions playing their sport, is this really a good way to voice your concerns? Our Military of the past and the present, have fought for our flag, so we can be free here to do what we want and travel wherever we want to go. These men and woman of the Military are made up of our Mother’s, Father’s, Brother’s and Sister’s, some never made it back home, others came home but never the same as they left to fight for the flag, then as they come home to re join Society with us, they become neglected and disrespected by the rest of us throughout this Society. These Veterans are the one true oppressed people of this Society, cause they worked hard so we can be free and safe in this Country, as the ones that think they are oppressed, don’t work and expect the rest of us to tale care of them, as they become even lazier throughout this Society.

There are many that are oppressed within this Society, but they work hard to get out of the oppression, so they can be as vibrant and happy like many others. The ones that bicker and complain become lazy and never work hard at doing anything of value in their lives, then they try to disrupt the lives of those around them, by doing stupid things and forcing their opinions on those around them. Oppression is what you make of it and if your not willing to reach out, lend a helping hand to others at their time of need, then I blame we the people for letting this Oppression become bigger than it really needs to be.

There are some that cry they are oppressed, but do nothing to help themselves, they do nothing to get out of the oppression, then they rely on others to not help them out of the oppression, but to disrupt the lives of others around them. ” God helps those who help themselves”, so when there is no hope of any help, only means you have lost the faith in yourself as well as in God also. Don’t rely on others to over step the boundaries in a Society, as it is like the stream and if the stream over stepped it’s boundaries, then all the Vegetation around it dies as it becomes flooded.

Before you take a knee in protest, really know what you are protesting, I understand that there is oppression going on around us but, this oppression has affect on a lot more than one kind of person in this Society, to take a knee before a game to not pay tribute to a flag of this Countries colors, to which many have fought and died, so we can be free and you can earn millions from the sport where you are taking the knee, this is not a good idea and shows that people need to re think the way to protest. By taking a knee you are doing nothing but showing disrespect of those who fought hard, died and came home not of the same person defending the flag, so we all can be free to be anything of which we truly want to be. Find another way in which to protest that won’t show any disrespect of anything or anyone around you, Let’s all be a little smarter with our actions, so we all can walk our paths in peace, while being truly happy throughout this journey of life.

 

” Oppression comes from relying heavily on others to work on our behalf, without we ourselves working hard to get out of the Oppression”

” oppression is what you make of it and with no faith there will be no hope of getting out of the Oppression”

” Many have died fighting for the red, white and blue so the rest of us can be free in this country, let’s not disrespect their spirit by taking a knee in it’s honor”

 

The Solitude of Camping.

Camping in a tent within the Wilderness is there no better way to get away and unwind,

The quiet Solitude of just kicking back and clearing your mind of all the crap,

sitting in front of a campfire and picking softly on the guitar in tune with nature,

no care of what time it is, nor even when it is time to eat just flowing with nature,

no hustle and bustle or running around, just relax and enjoy your surroundings,

stress? there is none within the world of camping as you get back in touch with reality,

while camping take a nature walk to look deeply and see whats around you,

a good walk within nature is more than exercise as it helps you get in tune with yourself,

A good walk within nature helps you look deeply at what you see around you,

listen to the sweet music of the birds chatting with each other along your path,

a walk within nature is no work at all, as it totally relaxes you and clears your mind,

then as you get back to your campsite, you are ready to fully enjoy what camping is about,

some may not like sleeping in a tent, others sleep like a baby with no interruptions,

sleeping in the wilderness in a tent helps reset the body’s clock,

so you than can get back to truly being who you are,

as you eliminate the crap and get back your true feelings and emotions,

the crackle of the campfire and the blue flame near the hot coals will mesmerize you,

as you go into a trance that totally soothes you from head to toe,

the campfire can put you to sleep or with a group,

you can share stories or even make up some ghostly stories that intrigue you,

it’s all part of the magic of the campfire,

camping like the campfire has it’s magic, but this magic,

will have you clear your mind, body and soul to totally relax and unwind,

the set up of the campsite may take some time depending on what you have,

but once camp is set now it’s time to unwind and clear your mind body and soul,

camping in a tent may not be for some as for others its the only way to camp,

in a tent will get you back in touch with reality,

in an RV or a trailer it is too much like home and you lose the effect of true camping,

who needs electric while camping, when you have flashlights, lanterns whether battery,

or propane, then cooking is done on the camp stove and grill, or simply on a grill on the campfire,

there was once a time that there was no electric or any other amenity,

it was like camping everyday along your path of this journey through life,

we all forget the true magic of camping, cause we are stuck within this easy society,

those who lived in the time of no electric, had no clue of the word stress,

they worked hard to maintain their campsite everyday,

but to them it wasn’t work just something they had to do to survive,

plus they did it in moderation to stay in tune with themselves,

stay in tune with all that is around them including themselves,

leaving them fully in tune of who they truly were,

leaving them with their true feelings and emotions in tune,

so they can walk their path along this journey of life in peace and serenity.

 

” camping may not be for some, but for others they become more in tune with themselves and all that is around them”

” wilderness camping in a tent is the most therapeutic thing you can do, as it totally gets you back in touch with yourself and  all that is around you”

” to feel the magic of camping while enjoying the magic of the campfire, will have you be truly of who you are and while you walk your path in peace always throughout this journey”

 

Karma will always avenge those with false acquisitions

It is sad that in today’s Society some will accuse others of things they have never done…… Why? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe it’s the fact that they lack their own self confidence and this is a way for them to try to move forward, while thinking they are better than you?  Could also mean that they have some hidden issues that they are afraid to address? I get the fact we all have our own issues that we deal with on a daily basis, but when we deal with issues that are brought on by others, that make false accusations, shows just how people in this Society need to grow up, accept the responsibility of their actions, learn how to be confident in their abilities and instead of burying their issues deep within their sole, fix what needs to be fixed, so we all can move forward in peace and happiness, along our paths of this journey through life.

Self Confidence is something we all learn as we grow along our paths of this journey, self confidence doesn’t just happen as it is achieved by the way we learn to be better at all we do along our paths. When we lack this Self Confidence shows that we have become lazy at earning and achieving it, we forget how to practice whatever we need to practice, so we can achieve the confidence to move forward, within this Society we have become so lazy, we forget what it is to work hard for what we want, to work hard to gain our self confidence and when we get that lazy we then get lost within the clouds of our own self doubt. When self doubt enter onto our paths, we then will do anything, in order to move forward, even if that means knocking others down, so we then what we think is moving ahead of them? This is only one thing and that is, the fact that we lack the confidence in ourselves to move forward correctly, so we then can achieve success correctly, while we all become happy everyday of our journey.

Self Confidence isn’t just in the ability of a person that plays a sport, it is within each of us along our paths of our journey, we strive for the confidence to be great at whatever we are doing, when we lack the confidence and we become lazy to work hard at achieving it, we then will do anything to try to achieve it, yes that means we will try to bring down others around us,  to make it seem like we are better, even though they do the job better than I? Simply look at some one like Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, he works very hard, not just at practice, but within the game of football he plays, with that hard work and practice, he has enough self confidence in his abilities, that he is by far the best Quarterback in football, those within the game that chats ill of him are simply jealous and are lazy to work as hard as Tom, not too mention the reason why some hate on him so much. Life along our paths of this journey will go so much smoother if we all work hard and practice everything we do, fix whatever issues we have, so we can achieve our self confidence and be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Self Confidence isn’t something that just comes to us, we have to work hard in achieving whatever we do to gain the Confidence”

” To bring another down is not the way for us to achieve success, or even move forward stronger and better”

” When we lack self confidence only means we have issues that we need to fix, so we can achieve the confidence to be better and stronger moving forward”
