” In giving we receive, Love one another as I have loved you”

John 15:12

 

”            * O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

* To be understood as to understand,

* To be loved as to love,

* For it is in giving that we receive,

* It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

* It is in dying that we are born to eternal life

Saint Francis of Assisi

 

 

America is so beautiful, but if spend all your time within the cities of America and not venture out to where the hands of Mankind are not, you really haven’t truly been living, as you walk your path of this journey through life. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some beauty within the cities, but the beauty in places where Mankind has never touched and where Mother Nature has roamed free, to purify God’s beautiful creation, now your truly seeing what true beauty is and that true beauty, is also deep within our hearts and souls, just that within this troubled society, we don’t let it out for others to see, as we only hide it deeper within, to keep it from all the ugliness around us today.

Now with that said, we of this society are so consumed with all the hatred and ugliness all round us, that we just can not see any true beauty for wherever we look. Most of why we are so consumed I place the blame squarely on the left bias media of today, their only agenda that matters is, to bring us as much hatred and drama as they can, so hopefully we don’t see anything else around us? We the People of this society are just as much to blame, as we let this happen and take no action against their so called news, or for better words, ” Fake news Media”. These media types call themselves Journalists, but yet they have no clue on how to write from the heart and let real words flow from their brains, to their fingers and onto the keyboard, as they type their so called stories. They would rather go to a Press Conference, ask their dumb and stupid questions, then take the words of response and twist them around, so it will fit into their drama ridden agendas. The left bias Media is a big problem within this society and we the People, need to wake up and totally see through all their crap and end their drama ridden free reign of the spoken word.

The other problem we have within this society is the fact that, these so called Politicians that get voted into office by we the people, will say all that we want to hear so they can get our votes and become elected, then after they are in, they turn their backs on those that elected them, just so they can back stab and manipulate the system for themselves, as they totally lose sight of all true reality around them. Right now the entire Democratic party is so far in Denial, that none of them have a clue of what true reality is, these people hate so much of our President, that they can not even recognize him as being the President of the United States and that is sad, when you have a President elected by the people and our other leaders can’t even call him a President? President Trump has been our President for just under two years, but yet he has done a whole lot more for the American people, than that other guy (Barrack Obama) has done in his eight years combined. I will give Barrack Obama credit for one thing only………. and that is, he was a better communicator and could speak well, without being rough around the edges with his words. Even with the ” Witch Hunt” investigation going on, President Trump continues to work hard and achieve a lot of good for our economy, but yet nothing has really come out of this investigation? Well I am calling out those of this investigation and seriously think about investigating further, not only the Clinton foundation, but the Clinton’s in general, in the way they have corrupted everything in their wake. It is time the investigation spends our tax dollars more wisely and actually do their jobs, instead of simply wasting all the hard earned money of the tax payer, on something that is nothing but a ” Witch Hunt”.

The other biggest thing that needs to be totally addressed is, the topic of   “Illegal” Immigration. If you are knowingly doing something Illegal and those around you keep slapping you on the hand, but yet you keep knowingly doing it, there is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, without sweeping it further under the rug. Mexico has a border wall on the other side of their country to keep out the riff raff, so why can’t we Americans have a border wall, so we can further protect the interests of all Americans? Don’t get me wrong, I do know that America was built on Immigration, but immigration done the correct way, without the word ” illegal” before the word of immigration. With the most recent news stories of fellow Americans being murdered at the hands of ” Illegal”Immigrants being so sad, so just how much of this has to happen, before our so called Leaders wake up from their dream world and simply get back in touch with true reality. I totally get the fact that others of other countries have their issues and want to find a better life for their families, but we here in America have our issues as well and the biggest one is, to totally revamp our Immigration policies and put and end to the word ” Illegal ” in front of the word Immigration, so we all can walk our paths, not just as safe as we can, but within true peace and happiness always.

This coming November is going to be one of the biggest and most important elections of my lifetime and if we screw this one up, America just may go in a direction, that we all will not like. True there may be some Democrats out there that are fair, balanced and totally in touch with reality, but I haven’t seen one yet? So with that said and being an Independent, I just may never vote Democrat until they come out of the denial of which they are in? Plus I am in total favor of term limits for all within the walls of Washington D. C. time to not just drain the swamp of corruption, but putting and end to those within our Government becoming to comfortable and set in their ways, so they can further their agendas, while they totally forget about those of who put them into their office they are in? We all here in America work hard and pay our taxes in this country, it is time we get rewarded for our hard work and not being taken advantage of or forgotten, like those so called leaders are doing now. We have a president in place right now that can do the job and so far he has proved he can do it, so this November, let’s reward him with the right candidates, so he can further his work of, ” Making America Great”. The time is now to fix what we need to fix, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” Drain the swamp is not the walking through the muck to clean the swamp land, it is about fixing the swamp of corruption within the walls of Washington D. C.”

” The true beauty of America is all around us, time we see through all the crap and totally see all the true beauty that is around us”

” When the word Illegal comes before anything, you are doing something wrong and need to fix what you are doing”

” Washington D. C. is flooded within the swamp of corruption, time to clean up the swamp for the good of all”

” When there is an investigation that has no base and goes no where, time to end the investigation and move on to something else”

Step up along this Journey of Lent……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

A Lenten Prayer:

” O Lord we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in your Divine Mercy and courage to accept the crosses and sufferings, which bring immense goodness to our souls and that of your Catholic Church. Help us to love you with our pure and contrite heart and to humble ourselves beneath your cross, as we climb the mountains of holiness, carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory,    AHEM!!!

 

*** St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina***

 

The journey of Lent is a forty day journey, it is also a journey that Jesus also walked when we walked together through this journey of life. The two key words to walking the Lenten journey is, ” faith and Belief”. You first have to believe in Jesus Christ, so you then can have faith in him, as you walk your path of this journey, peaceful and in happiness always.

There will always be times as we walk our journey’s, that some evil and ugliness will come to us, we begin to wonder if Jesus ever existed? Sometimes Jesus let’s the ugliness happen, so we then can fix for ourselves the ugliness and become stronger along our journey through life. With the faith and belief in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, there will never be any kind of ugliness that will derail us, from walking our paths through this journey of life.

Our Society of today is very much like the Society of the time that God sent his only son to us and walk his journey with us. The crime, the corruption, the violence, the ugliness, as well as the greed and all back stabbing of each other, the time is right for Jesus to send his son to us much like his father did, to walk a journey here with us, teaching us many things, including showing us how to truly feel God’s love within us and then spreading it with each other.

God’s love isn’t something we can turn off and on like the water in the faucet, God’s love is within us all, but unfortunately through all the Life events that may come to us and control who we are, we tend to bury this love so deep, that we feel nothing and get lost on the paths of this journey. We all feel the love of God within  ourselves, it is just we don’t acknowledge the love, which makes us cold without dealing with any weather. When we feel cold and our hearts become cold, we just have to get back in touch with who we truly are, have faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so we can be confident in all we do, then with the confidence, we can warm our hearts with God’s love, to once again share with each other, as we all walk a path through this journey of life.

 

” The forty day journey of Lent, a time we need to sacrifice, showing Jesus that we have not forgotten him and his love is deep within our hearts”

” We have become so far removed from the journey of Jesus Christ, no wonder we lack of the faith and belief in him”

” The problems of the Society when Jesus came and walked his journey are so much the same, as the problems within this Society today”

 

The luck of the Irish….

Saint Patrick’s day, a day we all become an Irish Chap for the celebration,

A good ole fashion Irish River dance to start off the festivities,

Belly up to the bar with a pint of Guinness as the green beer flow’s,

Good ole Shepard’s pie or some corned beef and cabbage take your pick,

But Irish tradition has ham not corned beef as this is the American Irish way,

The corned beef comes from the New England Boiled dinner in transition,

On this day may we all show respect for the Irish as we would want the same,

Saint Patty’s day to some is about the drinking til drunk,

To most it is celebrating a Heritage of another Country,

Each Country has their day of celebration, today is for Ireland “Erin go Bragh”,

The little Leprechaun is running around trying to find his pot of gold,

I haven’t seen a rainbow lately so maybe he will just drink the green beer,

I may not be Irish but I do like a nice River dance to sit and enjoy,

Whether Irish or not we all like a good healthy celebration,

So let us all celebrate this Saint Patty’s day in a healthy way,

as we all share a mutual respect for one another on this day,

Wish each other good health and spirits with some good clean fun,

As the Lord knows we all need this today within this broken Society,

So we all can unite as one in happiness and joy always everyday,

throughout all our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Let the Guinness flow as we all  enjoy respectfully while we learn to come together in harmony for one celebration”

” The green beer may be just for show but the celebration is real, so let’s enjoy together today and everyday”

” Coming together in harmony while showing our love and empathy of each other will warm our hearts better then all the Irish whiskey in the World”

” You don’t have to drink heavily to have a good time, as the best of times are done sober and we can remember everything of that good time”

 

That is on big Bird……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This bird is known as a Herring, it is one of the biggest birds I have seen as it stands pretty tall, with a wing span just as big. You notice how it sort of blends in with it’s surroundings, at first glance it kind of looked like one of the tree stumps around it.

As we look at this bird, think about all the different kinds of birds out there, you don’t see them squawking and calling each other a ” Racist”? This is only done by us the Humans within all the other creatures that walk this planet Earth. We the people of this Society are our own worst Enemy, we would rather bicker and fight each other, instead of walking our paths of this journey through life peacefully and happily.

Simply just look at our so called Leaders of this Country, they can’t even have a friendly disagreement, without either fighting with each other, or just clamming up and doing nothing, which then the People of the Country are the ones that really hurt from their disconnect. Then because of all the troubles of our Leaders, we the People see this and continue it throughout the streets, which does nothing but create more drama and chaos around us all. When the life events happen to each of us and yes we all have these events come to us at one point or another, instead of fixing the issues ourselves from the events properly we either do nothing, or we take it to the so called Leaders and try to make them file a bill against whatever the event was that came to you, but what we should of done in the first place is, fix the issue properly ourselves, so we then can continue moving forward stronger and better than before. You also add in the Political Correction throughout this Society and the fact we are afraid to do anything properly, for fear of offending somebody, now you have some pretty ridiculous bills that are trying to be passed by these so called Leaders. With this Political Correction we are all trying to make each other happy, but the reality of it is, we are all sad and hurt very deeply inside our souls. We all should never be afraid to look each other in the eye and tell them straight up the reality of anything, instead of   tip toeing around like we are walking on eggshells. just like a movie quote from A few good men, ” You can’t handle the truth”!!! Hate to say it but in this Society of Political Correction, this quote is right on. Just like within our Leaders of our Government, when they or anyone of us disagrees with our President, now we are a ” Racist”?? Come on now People its time to grow a backbone, fix our issues properly, so we all can get back to walking our paths of this journey through life peacefully and happily.

Just like the bird in this picture, we all belong to a large species, not all the members of the Species are the same, or even look the same, but yet unlike the birds we the People of our Species, do nothing but fight and disrespect each other every chance we get. Why do we keep on doing this to each other, we see that it does nothing but bring more ugliness around us, but yet we just keep on defying each other. The why we do it? Your guess is as good as mine and we all can guess just like we all have an opinion and you know what the saying is to we all have opinions? I think we all should simply just coincide with each other just like the birds around us,  fix our issues properly from the events that may come to us, so we all can walk our paths in peace, then be as happy as a bird singing each and every morning.

 

” The Herring bird is one big bird, there are bigger birds and they are all part of the beauty of this planet”

” Diversity is all around us it is within the animal kingdom as well as the Human kingdom”

” A true Leader just simply goes about his business, the rest think they can lead but in reality they make everything worse than it was”

 

 

Love thy Neighbor as we love ourselves.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Jesus replied, ” A man fell Victim to Robber’s as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, they stripped and beat him, then went off leaving him half dead. A Priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side”.

 

*** Lk 10:30-31***

 

This quote in this Society will be taken in so many different ways, but to truly see this quote as Jesus did, we first have to look deeply into what we see.

We within this broken Society are so divided and have become lost within the clouds of our judgments, that we have totally forgotten how to love thy Neighbor as we love ourselves, we may throw around the word of love like candy at a candy store, with things like, I love that car, I love the weather, or maybe I love that house, these are all material things that can change at the drop of the word love, but we have totally become so removed from this, knowing and loving thy Neighbor, as we know and love ourselves. I remember when growing up, the next door neighbor was a great man and as he went on vacation, or we went on vacation, we would collect each others mail and then give it to each other on our return, we looked out for one another and helped each other at times of need, these are the sort of things we have forgotten and things we have wandered away from within this Society. To truly love thy Neighbor is really not that hard, it comes as natural as it does for us to love ourselves. Instead we put up fences around our yards, that do nothing but divide us from our Neighbors, which is the same thing we are doing within this Society. Nobody Trusts each other anymore, Trust is the most important ingredient, that makes our love of selves flow freely into one another.

I understand we all have our issues, but when we don’t fix these issues properly, now they mount up and instead of them just affecting ourselves, now they are affecting each and every one that is around us and with this formula, it now forces our Society to hurt and in need of a major fix as well. With all this ugliness that surrounds us today, shows perfectly just how, that when we enter a Society without properly fixing our own issues, bleeds into a Society and forces us all to become less trustworthy of each other, then reluctant to share our love with each other. The paths we walk through this journey of life, will have many twists and turns, bumps that will bruise us on the inside as well as the outside, but when we don’t let ourselves heal properly, don’t fix properly the issues that gave us the bruise, now we enter into a Society weakened and not strong enough, to enter into a Society of many.

This quote today to some may be an ugly quote, as they read of the Priest walking by on the opposite side, but for those who look deeply into what they read or see, will clearly see that, the Priest saw clearly that the Neighbor was coming to help, showing that he loved his Neighbor as he loved himself. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, his biggest teaching to us, was for us to help each other and to love each other as we love ourselves, but unfortunately, we have gone in the other direction and have totally become self centered, so we can try to avoid all the ugliness we see around us. Through this ugliness we see some bringing further hurt to others, this is not the way Jesus taught us when he walked his journey, Jesus had no weapons on him and he even had only the clothes he wore, without any bag or bags on his back, he only came to us with the warmth of his heart and sharing the warmth of his heart, by loving each one that came along his path, it is really very simple and easy, just that we the People have made it very hard with our actions, then took it further with not loving thy Neighbor as we love ourselves. All this ugliness can disappear just as easy as it came to us, all we have to do is love thy Neighbor as we would love ourselves, fix our issues properly, before we then take them into a Society of many, when we do this, then we all can walk our paths peacefully with happiness, throughout this journey of life.

 

” Love thy Neighbor as we love our selves, this is what used to be, but now as we walk our paths further from this, only breeds further ugliness around us”

” Trust and Love are the two biggest ingredients missing within this Society, when we find and bring back these ingredients, all this ugliness will disappear”

 

Sorry I am not buying the Hype…

” Let’s all remember when Moses climbed to the mountain top, then returned to the people with the Ten Commandments, or the laws given to him from God, for us all”

 

 

In lieu of the massacre of the Police Officers in Dallas, Texas. We are a Country scorned or even greater, we are a Society scorned and in need of a major fix, so we can end all this ugliness that is around us. Times like this we need to turn to our Leader’s to lead us, but when those leaders fail us like they have many times in the past, it is time for new Leadership, that will have no issue with fixing what is wrong, so we all can get back to walking our paths in peace, along this journey through life.

We all have our agendas along this journey, but when the Leaders put their agendas ahead of those that put them into office, then it will all catch up sooner or later and right now it has caught up, with our leaders not knowing which way to turn, so they then proceed to do nothing, cause it is the easy way out and they then duck and hide to try to avoid all the ugliness that surrounds us now.

The only way to address all the ugliness around us, is to identify who or what is causing this ugliness. All the facts are not out yet with the Dallas shooting tragedy, but some of what I heard is, the shooter was in the U. S. Military at one point, which would explain the Sniper ability he has? Maybe some PTSD and the fact that the shooter snapped for some reason or another? We need to first identify the problem and not politicize, like our leaders are doing now. ” The problem is not the guns, the problem lies with the Individual that is pulling the trigger of the gun”. Maybe we should stop cutting the Mental Health field, so we can help those who are in dire need, when someone is in the Mental health facility, they then can get the right Meds at the times put in place for them. when you kick these Individuals to the street, not only do they not get the proper meds, they also don’t take them at all and this now becomes a bigger problem than it really needs to be. I am not saying that all who take meds are crazy, only those who need a med that will control their Psychological side, so they then can control better of their actions.

I have a question for you, If I were to put a gun on the table with a lot of people around and no one touches that gun, will that gun fire and kill someone at the gathering? If you said no, why then do our Leaders think that more gun control, will stop the Mentally Deranged   from killing innocent men and woman around us? these Mentally Deranged weren’t always this way, maybe at one point they were very successful with no issues, than one day they snapped, bought a gun, cause they had no priors that would stop them or flag a background check, now that they have a gun and in their unstable state of mind, now you have an ingredient, to a recipe that will create a tragedy, wherever the main course may be?

God did not create Mankind to do these ugly acts on one another, God created us to coincide with each other, share our uniqueness with each other, as well as share our love that is within all our hearts with each other. We the people of this Society are the ones at fault of this ugliness that is around us, simply because we have become so lazy to put in the work, that we have become lost within the clouds of our judgments,  we have become so lost of the true reality, that we are now living within a fantasy that is within our heads. To truly fix what is wrong with Society, we first need to do some sole searching, fix our own faults, so we then can help others fix themselves, which will then help society grow as it should, stronger and better. We need now more than ever to reach deep within our soles, truly get in touch with our true Empathy within us, so we than can release our love of ourselves with each other, then and only then can we get back to walking our paths in peace and happiness, along this journey through life.

 

” Guns don’t kill, it’s the person behind the gun pulling the trigger that kills”

” maybe instead of more gun control, there should be more educational classes on the use and storage of a gun”

 

The twisted path along this journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The twisted path throughout this Society is full of obstacles and is quite ugly at first glance, these obstacles are from each of us with our carelessness, we all want to leave our mark when we depart this journey, but unfortunately….. it is like going to your favorite restaurant, you want to have the restaurant cater to you and make you a dish only you would like, but if a restaurant did this for all that entered through their doors, the restaurant would then go out of business, leaving a void in all of us, as now we have an obstacle that becomes run down and ugly.

We all want to walk our paths with the path giving us no resistance, or the path giving us everything we want, especially if the path has never been blazed ahead of us, we now have to make our path, cleaning it as we go, learning at every turn, ready to face whatever obstacle that may meet us around the corner and working very hard to move forward as easy as we want. There is no path that we can just skate through with no work or issues, but if we work hard enough, than all our paths can become smoother as we blaze our way through the path.

Some may want other’s to blaze ahead of us, then we just skate through as easy as we can, it don’t work that way as, a path blazed by one, may not be the right path for you, this holds a lot more obstacles to over come and some twists that you then become so tangled, that you then lose your way and inability to find any path properly. Every path may not be perfect, but if we clean as we go, take care of our own issues without involving those around us, take care of the obstacles around each turn, then even as the path may still have some cleaning, it will become easier as we go, with all our hard work we do as we walk the path we choose along this journey through life.

Within this Society of today, all our paths have become cluttered with ugliness, only because we have tangled ourselves among each other, we then try to force one another to do the cleaning, instead of we ourselves, doing the work to untangle from the twists of our endeavors. You can’t force another to do the work of untangling your twists, as you can’t force another to see things as you see them, you only create more ugliness and resistance all around you.

We have all lost the true feeling of Empathy within us, because we are all tangled so far within our twists, that we have lost the ability to not only love ourselves, but to love one another, so we then can end all this hatred that is around us today. This hatred is the biggest obstacle before us along our paths, when we overcome it, feel the true Empathy within us, then and only then, will our paths seem to be getting smoother and easier. This takes hard work on all our parts and not just one waiting for another to come and blaze the path ahead of us, we first have to blaze our own path, then as each path crosses each other, they can come together out of love and empathy for each other, so we than can share instead of feeling angered and feeling hate, that you crossed my path and messed it up in a way I didn’t like, these paths take hard work on all our parts, we just need to accept the work, so we all can walk our paths along this journey of life, in peace and happiness everyday we step onto a different path, at each turn.

 

” Each path along this journey of life comes with its own obstacles, just we need to identify and work hard to overcome each obstacle, so we don’t become tangled in our own twists”

” In life not everything is of what we want, but when we work hard we than can create everything we want, making all our paths a joy to walk”

” Our paths may become cluttered with ugliness, only because we stop working hard to overcome the obstacles. so our paths can meet in harmony of each other”

 

Through the bad, there is good.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

In this ever changing World for which we live, we to can feel as small as this Salamander looks. This Salamander may look down the path it follows and think, he may never reach the destination which he sets out to reach, being so small and all around him looking so big, he moves along his path with no aspirations or drive, but on the contrary he works hard, moves at his pace and never gives up, leaving him happy and contempt with what he overcomes along his path. Like everything changes for us, it to changes for this little guy, but with perseverance and courage, all change can be for the better, making us and this little guy stronger moving forward.

Within this Society we tend to look at the bad and think nothing good will ever come of it, only because we have become lazy and give up before we even try. A person within this Society who has dreams and goals, buys up a business that is struggling, hires the right people around him and together they build a successful company, for the next twenty years he not only builds up the company further, he builds a respect with his workers, the clients he gathers and other companies around him. Then one day twenty years later, another company comes along see’s how well his business is doing, how clean he keeps his facility and the pride he has doing all this, they make him an offer to buy him out, so they can extend their company further in another region, now this Owner don’t want to disrupt the ones that worked hard and helped him grow the business, so he just doesn’t settle for any offer, he settles on a great offer, that takes care of the employee’s that helped him grow his company. I stumbled into this business a year ago and have worked hard since I have been there, yes it is emotional for all when change comes like this, but this owner wants to give back to his employees by giving them bonuses for their length of time there, yes I am getting my bonus, but the one guy left from twenty years ago, is getting a great bonus and a reward for all his hard work. This is how it should be within this Society, instead we have gone the other way, now true their are good business owners out there, but they are far and few between. These paths we walk through this journey of life can be rough at times, we all get knocked down from time to time, but it is not on how you fall, it has everything to do with how you pick yourself up, dust yourself off, fix what needs to be fixed, so you can move forward better and stronger than before.

Change will come to us in many ways, but change when handled correctly can be the most beautiful thing we will ever go through. Unfortunately in this Society we fear change, only because we have become so lazy to work hard, to let change do what it does best…….. make us better moving forward. This Salamander in this picture can easily give up and become lazy, but he don’t and because of that, he goes along his path with his head held high, works hard every day so he can eventually reach his destination to where he has set is goals, to where he wants to be throughout his journey. There is always a lesson to learn whenever change comes before us along our path, but unless we look deeply into what we see, we will never see the good of the change and always see just the bad, which then forces us to give up, before we even start.

 

” when change comes to us there is a lesson to learn, but only if you look deeply into what you see”

” Never give up as easy as it might be, never become lazy as hard work always has its rewards  and we all can achieve success at all we do”

” there is always good that comes out of the bad, we just have to look deeply into what we see to have the good make us all better and stronger”

 

The Solitude of Camping.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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”

 

The Good will prevail among us….

” Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction”.

-2 Cor 1:3-4b, ESV

 

” May we always remember in our Prayers, all those affected by any tragedy throughout the World and may we all feel the comfort of Jesus from all these afflictions that comes across our paths”.

The Journey through life is like the Journey to the summit of any Mountain for which we attempt, it comes with many trials and tribulation, there are many obstacles we learn to over come, many bumps that will bruise you on the outside as well as the inside, sometimes these bumps will knock you down, but it is never on how you fall, it is always on how you pick yourself up from the fall and move forward with strength to be better. On the journey up the mountain we will see many things, only if we look deeply into what we see, it is when we just scratch the surface of this journey, that we then don’t see all the true beauty that is around us, instead we only see what we want to see and we then open ourselves up to the afflictions and tragedies, that may come to us along our path.

The Journey up the Mountain to some may seem like to hard of work, so they never venture up any mountain to experience the true beauty that is around them. As you walk the path of the mountain, is like walking the path of this journey through life, you see the light at the end of the path, which is the summit at the top of the mountain and when we reach this summit, we then get a strong feeling within us and this feeling is of the accomplishment that we just climbed, that feeling of Awe!!! We get as we reach the summit, is the same feeling that we get, as we accomplish anything that comes before us along our journey through life. This is our outer body experience, that when things become so overwhelming to us and we then become clouded within our judgments, we then lose this feeling and lose our vision along our path, we then move forward without seeing all the true beauty that is around us.

As Jesus comforts us from all the afflictions throughout this journey, we then comfort ourselves and each other, so we all can live in peace along our paths of this journey, Jesus showed us the way when he came to us and walked his journey, he also died for us to further his teachings to us, but we are so far removed from the days of Jesus coming to us, that we are now letting the clouds of our judgments get in the way, of us truly looking deeply at what we see. We forget just how beautiful everything around us is and are now consumed with all the ugliness that surrounds us, there is a light at the end of all our paths, it is just that we are not letting ourselves see the light, this light is not the light of day, it is a beacon within each of us, that Jesus lights up our paths as we strive toward the path of righteousness, we don’t see this light, we only feel this light, when we truly look deeply at all we see.

When we truly feel this light, only then will the shadow of doubt leave us, only then will we clearly feel the light within us and look deeply at what we are seeing. A big part of all these Afflictions and tragedies around us, is simply because not only do we doubt ourselves, but we also have forgotten how to forgive ourselves as well, when we Pray for Jesus to forgive us, we first have to forgive ourselves to truly be forgiven at all. The power of forgiveness, will always help us feel the light within us and will always help us look deeply into what we see. This journey through life is the same as the journey to the summit of the mountain, it will reward us with the feelings of accomplishments, when we truly look deeply at what we see along our path.

 

” The Mountains we see around us from the Valley’s, are not just there for us to see, they are there for us to feel accomplishment as we journey to the summit of each one”

” The trials and tribulations along our journey here on Earth, are the same as the ones we face on the journey up the mountain and help us look deeply into what we see”

” to truly feel the power of the mountain experience and feel Jesus within us, we first have to venture up the mountain and let ourselves look deeply into what we see that is all around us”
