An Anniversary of Good versus Evil

 

 

 

” May the sun always shine on the Boston Marathon, the sun showing good with no evil present”

 

Despite the weather, this day of the Boston marathon will always be more than just a competition of running. Five years ago two Brothers decided to bring hatred and evil to all that were at the marathon, but quickly found out that, no matter how planned out you thought you were, the good will always win out over any evil. You hear more about the different charities a lot of runners are running for, yes all the runners start out with the same goal and that is to cross the now famous finish line of the Boston Marathon. Some may not finish as their bodies become overwhelmed with exhaustion, some may feel the true warmth of God’s love no matter how cold the weather, when a fellow runner stops and either helps or carries them across the finish line and yes, the true competition may be in the front of the pack, with the ones who want to finish first, but the real competition starts from the middle to the end of the pack, with all the love and empathy showed of each other, not too mention all the charities being run for.

Five years ago there was very ugly tragedy at the finish line of the Boston Marathon but through that tragedy, there has been so much good that has come from it, that it just fills your heart with the warmth of God’s love and willing to share that love with each other. We the people need so badly to realize that, we don’t need evil to find the love, simply because the love is within us all and all we need to do is, just reach down deep within ourselves and truly feel the warmth of the love, then share it with our good and thoughtful actions, instead of letting evil turn us into someone we truly are not.

With the ones who perished five years ago at the marathon, especially one eight year old boy named Martin Richards, who was full of life and with his sign that read, ” no more hurting people…………. Peace” we will never find out, of just how much good could of come from this young innocent boy? Those who perished and those who survived the terrible tragedy, are now victims from the terrible day and that will never change throughout their lives, they can either let the victimization stew within their thoughts throughout the rest of their journey’s, or they can move forwarded better and stronger, by who they truly are from such a terrible tragedy, showing nothing but good and a smile everyday, as they walk their paths throughout this journey of life.

All versions of the media want nothing more than to hold onto all the ugliness and the hatred, as this is what makes them money and keep s them creating all the drama around us, simply because it is their agenda and they don’t want to waiver from it, what the media tends to forget is, they are not as powerful as they think? The real power belongs to us the people, as we are the ones that can turn them off and ignore all that they are about. The problem now is, we have forgotten how to turn them off and we have become too addicted to all the drama around us today. Only if we get back to truly of who we are, then and only then, will we the people not only control who we are, but we then will take back control, of what the media has taken from us, with all their agendas and their fake news/ drama. Let’s get back to looking at events like the Boston marathon with the eyes of good, so then there will be no room at the Inn for any evil of any kind,

It’s too bad that we within this Society think that we need tragedies to see any good, we also make fun of others pains, just to forget our own pain, it doesn’t have to be this way, only if we had more faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, if only we made more trips to the house of God, then just maybe all the good will flow from each of us, with no sight of any evil anywhere within our futures. Our destiny’s are not about any evil, our true destiny’s starts within ourselves, as we truly feel the love of God within us and as that love warms us, then we can share that love with each other, instead of showing hatred or attacking one another with much ugliness. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all start out the same at the beginning, as well as finish the journey the same as well, but what lies within the middle of the journey, lies completely within ourselves and the actions we take and bring to each other. The good versus evil talk lies completely within ourselves and until we get over ourselves and realize this, then we will always have evil to get around, on all our paths of this journey.

 

” The good will always win out over evil, we just have to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in Jesus Christ”

” When you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see the good with no evil in sight”

” Five years since the terrible tragedy at the Boston marathon, shows just how good always wins over any evil”

” it’s the media that keeps the drama of the tragedies alive with their agendas, time to see clearly through the drama at the reality of our paths through the journey”

Holy art though…… on this Blessed Holy week

See the source image

 

While the forty day journey comes to a close and Jesus gets betrayed by one of his Disciples, Let us all remember the sacrifice he made for each of us, so we than can be free from all harm, the sacrifice of himself, as he is nailed to the cross. Then on Good Friday he then rises from the tomb of the dead, to truly show of just how much he loved us all. With this Holy week, let each of us sacrifice away all this ugliness around us, so we then can dig down deep within our souls, pull out the love within us and share this love with each other, not the superficial love, but the true love of Jesus Christ that is within all our hearts and souls.

Jesus set a great example for us all to follow, but we the people not only have lost the faith in him, but we also have developed a mind set that, our way is the super highway and the only way, now look where that has taken us, with all the ugliness and hate that surrounds us today. This ugliness and hate is we the people giving into Temptation, the same Temptation for which Satan had tried to temp Jesus into giving into and joining him with his ugliness. Jesus stayed true to who he is, believed totally in his Father, the lord God, the creator of all Mankind, so he could prove to us along his journey here with us, that there is so much more to the journey, when we to stay true to ourselves, stay true to the love within our hearts and souls, have complete Faith in ourselves as well as with He………Jesus Christ.

This and all Easter seasons isn’t just a time for candy and a Easter Bunny. It all starts with the Lenten journey, or the forty day journey, the very same journey Jesus walked here with us, as this journey then takes us into the Holy week, with betrayals, pain and hurt, while it ends with a resurrection from the dead, showing the true power of love. During the Lenten journey Jesus showed us that, when we stay true to who we are, with great faith in ourselves and he as well, there is no temptation strong enough that will over power and control us, as we to walk a path through this journey of life, which then will give us great hope moving forward always.

The sacrifice, the love, the temptations, the faith or the hope, are not just key components of the Lenten forty day journey, these are key components for us all as we walk our paths, through this journey of life. These components are what makes us who we truly are, so we than can share our compassion and empathy with each other and when we share this compassion and empathy, then the ugliness and hate will disappear from our lives, so we than can be within the peace and happiness, that Jesus brought us to, as we came to the true path of righteousness. Within the path of righteousness, there is no room for any hate or ugliness, which then surrounds us with all good, with the evil staying put, where ever  it goes, when it is not wanted by anyone. May we all find that true peace within this Holy week, so we than can keep this peace going throughout the year and throughout all our paths, of this journey through life.

 

” The forty day journey of Lent is a journey that free’s us from the ugliness and hatred, through sacrifice and truly feeling the warmth of God’s love within us”

” The true love of Jesus within us is more powerful than anything that we may encounter along our paths of this journey”

” Good Friday to Easter, is the resurrection of Jesus Christ, so he could show just how deeply he loves each of us”

” Through all the ugliness and hatred around us, the true love of Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and souls”

 

 

 

 

 

May the Lenten Journey bring us Peace

See the source image

” And when I am lifted up from the Earth, I will draw everyone to myself”.

*** John 12:32 ***

 

May the Lenten journey bring you closer to the Lord, may you totally feel his love that is deep within your heart and soul, for which you need not look any further than yourself. Then as you feel the love of God within you and become soothed by the warmth, then let us all spread this Love with each other, instead of this hatred, that is ripping us apart.

Love is in the air and no it is not a red heart with Cupid’s arrow going through it, it’s the true love from Jesus Christ to us all, who walk a path through this journey of life. Jesus came to us and sacrificed for us all, he taught us so many things and with his teachings came his true love for us all, no matter of who you were. The biggest thing Jesus showed us, was how too resist Temptation, as it is everywhere and will try to control who we truly are. This Temptation is just Satan trying to steer us away from Jesus, so he can bring hatred and ugliness, instead of the true beauty and love that Jesus brings.

Just as God our Father gave us his one and only son………… Jesus Christ. Maybe to one day? Jesus will bring to us his son, so we of this Society being so removed from his journey, can truly see and feel his love deep within our hearts and souls. We so truly need this. as just like the Society back then, there is way to much Temptation, hatred and ugliness, at every turn along our paths of this journey. With so many that have wandered away from the house of the Lord, I think it is time we revisit, see what has changed and what has stayed constant? Just maybe if we all make the trek back to the house of the Lord, we all can get back in touch with who we truly are, which is someone who is nothing but love, happiness and joy, with at no time has, any kind of hatred or ugliness. These are learned from somewhere and it is time to unlearn them, so we all can move forward, in the Peace of the Lord always and forever.

May the waterfall of this picture, cleanse us all and wash away our sins, so we than can move forward in Jesus Christ, truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this love with each other and not, this hatred or ugliness, that consumes us now. The good will always prevail, just we so need to have complete faith in, not just ourselves but in Jesus Christ as well, so we than can have the hope in all we do moving forward. If you look deeply into the water going over the falls, you can clearly see the strands of water, instead of just looking and seeing black….white……then black again. The white of the falls represents the paths of each of us, as all our sins, pain and suffering gets washed away, so we than can get back in touch with who we truly are, with zero distractions, as we walk this journey through life, in Peace and Happiness always.

 

” The journey of Lent isn’t just for Catholics or Christians, as Jesus Christ welcomes all to come to the journey”

” The Lenten journey is all about love, peace, sacrifice and a self examination of your inventory deep within”

” The love of Jesus Christ is within us all, time we all truly feel it and unleash it’s true power”

” Jesus is around us everywhere, we just have to see his signs and truly feel his love, then we can move forward with true strength always”

 

 

 

 

 

The 40 days of Lent, the journey within the journey……

Desert Landscape

 

” He said in reply, ” it is written: one does not live on bread alone”, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God”.

*** Mt 4:4***

 

Now that the Lenten journey for the Catholics has begun, let us not forget that it is a forty day journey and a journey of redemption, that helps us get to know ourselves better, as we move forward along this journey of life, better and stronger each day. Jesus also walked this forty day journey through the desert and was met by Satan along the way, Satan tempted Jesus to go by the side of the dark, but with true faith in himself, as well as with his father, he walked away from the temptation better and stronger. Even Adam and Eve who was put within the garden of Eden resisted the temptation of all the fruit, til the serpent also known as Satan, came to them and tempted them to eat the forbidden fruit from the forbidden tree, Adam and Eve did give to temptation and since had opened their eyes to their big mistake. We also within this Society have many temptations all around us, Satan is even more around us than before. The temptation of evil is strong, but when we stay true to ourselves, stay true to who we are and have complete faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, then the good will always be stronger than any Evil will ever be.

When Jesus walked this journey through the desert, he did so with only the clothes on his back. Now this may be hard to believe, but when you have true faith in God, as well as yourself, there is nothing we can not do with determination, faith and a purpose for which direction to walk, now you have a recipe for success at whatever you want to succeed in.  Even with all the ugliness we see today, success is still there for each of us, when we truly believe in ourselves, not only forgive ourselves, but forgive those around us, acknowledge the love of God within our hearts and souls, so we than can share that love with each other. We have always had the power to succeed inside us, it is just that we never give ourselves a chance to succeed, because we get so caught up in the crap around us, we never take the time to have faith in anything let alone ourselves.

Lent is a time to reflect on our time so far along this journey of life, so we can correct where we went wrong and fix what we need to fix, so we can continue moving forward stronger and better. Lent is also a time to reconnect with ourselves as well as with Jesus Christ, through Lent we learn to resist any Temptation whether good or bad, so we can than identify all the different kinds of Temptations, but the biggest part of Lent is the re-connection with ourselves and knowing who we truly are and the re connection with Jesus as he guides us to prosperity, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” There are many different kinds of temptations around us that will derail us along our paths, but true faith in ourselves and Jesus will keep us on the right track”

” Temptation is a way for the evil of Satan to control us, it is the belief in ourselves and Jesus that keeps temptation from controlling us”

” Lent is a forty day journey that keeps us focused and keeps us from giving in to temptation”

” The temptation of evil may be strong, but the love of God within us is even stronger and helps us resist all kinds of temptation”

 

The birds of a feather soar,as the King of the jungle will Roar………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Look at the birds in the sky, they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly father feeds them, are not you more important than they?”

 

*** MT 6:26****

 

The Birds fly through the air with the greatest of ease,  then as the air currents provide they then soar conserving their energy, the birds also build their nests so they can raise their families, to become strong and fly through the open skies as easy as themselves, The birds also live off the land gathering supplies for the nest, food for themselves and their young, this is the same land that we as Humans walk on and that God our father has created for us all to coincide and walk our journey’s through our lives. God does provide for us all, only we as Humans have elected that we think we can do it better, to which in some ways we do, but in other ways we have failed, which leads to a Society of chaos and disruption of major concern.

We as Humans are the smartest of all the creatures that God has created, God will still provide for us, but he leaves a lot up to us to figure out as we walk our paths of this journey through life. Over the years of our existence from the beginning of Mankind, we have made great strides in making our lives easier, especially throughout the current Society for which we all live, like all the technology we see around us today. This technology was originally designed to help us and make our lives easier, but we have taken this technology for granted and have used it in a very different way, that does nothing but bring chaos and disruption to us all.

The beginning of Mankind was a journey very different then today, but they learned how to survive by making weapons, so they can hunt for food, to take care of themselves, they discovered how to protect their feet as they walked their paths, by inventing a version of the shoe, their are many things that man has invented that has been good and helps us all in many ways, but there has been a lot of unnecessary crap that we think we need, but only we wasted our time with, instead we invented things that really serve no purpose. In this Society we have become so engulfed in Capitalism, that we have forgotten who we really are, just so we can become rich, while others go broke trying to buy all the unnecessary things. It is a dog eat dog World out there today, which only favors some, while the others struggle in a major way, just to try to put food on their tables for their families.

Back in the beginning of Mankind, we learned how to make the tools needed, so we can make a shelter to protect us from the environment,  like other creatures and the violent weather that may rain down on us. These tools today have changed drastically as everything around us over time, now we build many structures all over and where ever we can, just so some can become even more rich, while the rest go broke and live in the streets, in some ways much like man back in the beginning. We as Humans are the reason why this journey through life has become so complicated and full of chaos, simply because we have lost totally faith in who we really are as a person and we have also lost our true empathy of each other, which we have lost the true meaning of love and the true feeling of the word love.

True love is only felt deep within ourselves and then we share it with each other and with this love, there will never be any hate of each other. With all the hate we see today around us, you can clearly see that the love of God that is within us all, is lost and we really need to find it, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, as God wanted us to, when he created us from the beginning. Nobody truly loves each other anymore, as they may say they do in front of you, but when you turn your back, the hatred of the back stabbing knife goes deep within your back, this is not the true love of God that is within us, this is the evil of Satan, that we so much get engulfed with throughout this Society. Just as Jesus was faced with Satan, confronted him and rejected him, we to can confront Satan and reject him, all we need to do is, have complete faith in ourselves as well as God, so the hope of truly feeling the love of God within us, can warm our entire body and then we can share it with each other, so we all can walk our paths in peace and happiness, then we to can soar like the birds, as God provides for them and guides us to the true path of righteousness.

 

” The birds soar through the sky, as we Humans share our love with each other and soar through life in happiness”

” God’s love is within us all we only have to truly feel it so we than can share it with each other”

” Technology is good, technology is bad, we as Humans can control just how this technology can help us all”

” Good will always prevail over evil, when we stay true to who we really are”

Til Death do us part……….

” They can no longer die, for they are like Angels and they are the Children of God, because they are the ones who will rise”.

LK 20:36

 

There are so many unanswered questions surrounding the Death of anything even we as the People of the World. Where do we go after death? Does our soul really lift up out of our bodies? Why do some last longer than others? Why does it seem the Good always leave us sooner then later along this journey of life? There are these and many more questions about Death, only we never really think of them, because we fear death as the final ending, to us walking our paths along this journey of life.

” Get busy living, or get busy dying”. This was a quote within the greatest movie of all time in, Shawshank Redemption. This quote is so correct in many ways as we walk our paths of this journey, from the time of our Birth until we reach living within Society on our own, we are too busy living and making a life for ourselves, then when we reach a ripe old age, we then get busy preparing for that time when we are taken from this Society, some never make it to that ripe old age and some may live well beyond those years ( whatever the correct age is?). Through death and when that time comes, what are we really thinking and what are we really feeling deep inside ourselves? This is a question that can only be truly answered at the time that our journey is about to come to a close. Now when a loved one passes and we see them at the time of their last breathe, or someone close to us passes that has helped us in many ways, those that are left have to grieve and we as Humans grieve in our own way, this Grieving process brings us a lot of pain and sorrow, which unless we process it correctly, it can and will have us continue this journey with more bumps and bruises, then we care to except.

Now as we walk our paths of this journey of life, we try to walk it correctly, but there are many variables that come to us at the cross roads and these variables will control us if we let them, when these variables take control of us, we then get lost within the clouds of our judgments and become someone we truly are not. This Person that we think is ourselves we then move forward not knowing of our true direction, we move forward doing for ourselves and totally not acknowledging of those that are around us, everything then becomes for me and we totally put out of our heads that, there are many that walk a path through this journey of life. I understand that we all walk our own path, but we all walk them through one journey and this journey is, the journey of life.

When someone gets taken from us through Death, at first we become shocked then as the shock goes away and we come back to reality, we then get hit with the sadness of the death and ask ourselves why? Some may cry, some may not know how to cry properly, but the crying only helps us heal properly and ease the pain that comes to us through death. It is we the ones that survive the death of the one that was taken from us, that feel the loss and in some ways harder then others, as the one that lies in state, who really knows where they have gone? Death is permanent and I think that is what we fear the most? The second part we fear is the fact that, none of us can truly say, what happens after we are taken from this life? We may have an educated guess, but it is still just a guess, death comes to all of us at some point, whether it is we suffering the death, or a loved one, or maybe someone that we become close to, as they have helped us in many ways, but none the less death will affect us all at some point, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

Death is something that will affect us all at some point, which is why we all have to get busy living in the now………..correctly and not just for ourselves. God’s love is within us all and that is the warmth that fills our heart, not just the blood that flows through our veins, as God fills us with his love, it then becomes up to us to spread this love with each other, so we can not only get busy living, but we can also be ready for that time when our journey comes to a close, instead of simply getting busy dying. Are we really ready for that time of Death? We may think we are, but when it comes it scares the living crap right out of us, this is where the fear comes into play, because we fear the unknown and death is all about the unknown, no matter how well prepared we think we are. Instead of looking at death as an unknown, or being something as being permanent, why not celebrate the life that has died, so we all that have been affected by the death, can grieve properly and as we grieve properly, then we all can learn to accept death as something that happens at the end of a journey and maybe we won’t be so fearful of death? Although this journey through life has no road map and may end differently for all of us, but at least through the celebration of life, we may accept death better, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, being stronger and better and within peace and happiness.

 

” ” Get busy living or get busy dying”, great movie and great quote from the movie of Shawshank Redemption”

” Death is full of the unknown and it is the unknown that we fear the most about death”

” Nobody knows truly why some are taken sooner than others, only God truly knows and we need to have complete faith in him to accept death better”

” Through death we miss deeply of the ones that get taken from us, which makes the grieving process so important to each of us”

 

We are all Victims of Judgments

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” A Widow in that town used to come to him and say, ” Render a just decision for me against my adversary.”

 

*** LK 18:3

 

We throughout this Society are all Victims of these just decisions/judgments, as we pass judgments on each other and even without knowing truly of the facts of our judgments. We get so caught up within all the technology around us, that we then lose the biggest part of who we are and that is, the Personal touch of face to face interactions. In order to react to each other with our true feelings and our caring nature that is within us, we have to first come out from behind the technology, learn the true trait of face to face interaction, so we then can learn to trust each other once again and as we get our trust of each other back, we then can render a true judgment of each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and happiness that this journey is suppose to be all about.

In a lot of ways technology has made our lives easier, but with this easy part of the technology, we have also become so lazy, that none of us are willing to put in the work needed, in order to walk through this journey with confidence and we also have become afraid to interact with each other face to face. When we don’t interact properly, we then put false judgments on each other, which not only hurts the ones we are judging, it also hurts ourselves and our Society as a whole.

A Judgment is not the final ruling on who we are, or who we have become as we walk through this journey, but yet we take these judgments to seriously, as we don’t know where the true judgments are anymore. We have become a culture of judging as we judge everything and anything, as we walk our paths through this journey. When we judge everything around us, we then lose the biggest part of ourselves and that is, our true Empathy that is within us all. Without this Empathy we then lose the feeling of God’s love within our hearts and find it very difficult to follow in the footsteps of his only son……. Jesus Christ.

We are so removed from the journey of Jesus Christ and so far into all the technology around us, we are all guilty of losing the biggest part of who we are, as well as losing the feeling of Empathy deep within our core. Yes this technology can help us move forward stronger and better, but we first have to understand it and use it properly, without losing the true face to face interactions, which helps us keep in touch with our true feelings of empathy and helps us trust in each other. As we then put false judgment on each other. These false judgments are doing nothing but bring this hatred and chaos to all our paths and are forcing us to move backward instead of forward. Quite simply…… Let’s get back to the journey of Jesus Christ, remember all that he taught us, while he shared the true love of God with all that is around him ( as he still lives within all of us), Then as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we can also share the same love with each other, so we all can move forward better and stronger, while we live peacefully and in happiness everyday of this journey.

 

” This picture of Franconia Notch in New Hampshire with the calm water, shows the beauty of true peace which keeps us all focused on truly being of who we are”

” Technology was designed to help us move forward better and stronger, not bring out the drama and the hate as we hide behind it with no face to face interaction”

” Face to face interactions keeps us in tune with each other, so we can never lose touch with our Empathy and share the love of God within our hearts, with each other”
