Let’s clear the deadwood and end Bullying now,

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

There is so much more to walking the path we chose through this journey of life. We all at some point within our lives have been Bullied or have Bullied another, the thing we never talk about especially those who have been Bullied is, the fact that when you are being Bullied, you are shamed into thinking maybe something is wrong with me? Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all, when we are shamed we tend to forget who we truly are, for which we then put forth a fake self, just to try to fit in and be accepted. When we are shamed by another and bullied to the point we try to avoid others, we then become as lonely as this tree with all the deadwood around it.

There is so much true beauty around us as well as the beauty within each of us, that when we are Bullied and are shamed from the Bullying, we never get a chance to truly see any of the beauty around us or within. We walk our paths of this journey for we ourselves, it’s not about making others happy, it is more about being truly happy deep within ourselves, so we than can be happy on the outside, as we take this happiness to all that is around us. What a Bully never see’s when he is in the process of controlling what’s around him is, he never see’s any beauty either as to him there is nothing but power and control, plus the fact that a Bully has lost the feelings deep within himself like, the feelings of empathy or compassion, because if he felt either of these, he would never be a Bully anymore, to terrorize anyone of us.

The effects from a Bully can and will last a lifetime, they will leave scars and these scars can’t be seen, as they are deep within us, whether we want to admit to them or not. The scars from being shamed by a Bully are not just a scar that, with a band aid they heal and disappear from sight, these scars are emotional and come with great pain and hurt. The pain and hurt coming from shame, will have us become someone we truly are not, we ourselves won’t even recognize ourselves as we hide deep within ourselves and put forth this fake self, to try to protect ourselves from further pain and hurt, we will rationalize away anything coming from the shame as well as , going deep into denial, which then has us not even accepting our actions moving forward.

Bullying is nothing more than having the power and control over someone/something, it is also nothing more than using fear to have that power and control, a Bully is also a Coward as they can not even accept their own issues and then, they take it out on someone around them. A Bully can be anybody and you could be standing next to one now? The true way too stop a Bully is look them in the eye , show no fear as they try to make you fear, show them that they can not hurt or control you, as they then will cower away, like the true Coward for whom they are. There are Bully’s everywhere whether Domestic or abroad, we all have to face one sooner or later, now through Social media there are even the worse kind of Bully, known as the Cyber Bully, to which we never face, because they are a true coward that hides behind their device, these individuals can’t face any issues, let alone their own issues and hiding behind a device proves that, the problem is, they will do and say anything to have us become a slave to their words, so they than can ( in their own minds) seem as powerful to anything along this journey, but in realty they are the weakest link to this Society and need to be treated as such, so they will disappear from all our paths of this journey through life.

 

” A Bully is nothing more than a Coward that try’s to inflict fear on all that is around them”

” With a Bully it is all about power and control, when we don’t give them that, then they disappear like the tumble weeds in the wind of the desert”

” Shame is a very powerful feeling deep within us all and when we become shamed we then lose sight of who we truly are”

” Cyber Bullying is the new way of a Coward to try to control each of us, time we nip it in the bud and end their reign of terror”

” We all want the power and control, but when we forget of truly who we are, then our actions become inaction’s throughout our paths of this journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The road wasn’t always paved

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, in the beginning of Mankind the roads were never paved, that came later as we evolved over time. Now within this Society we all live in, so much has changed since the time back in the beginning, so much change for the better, as well as so much change that…………… well let’s just say has made us worse in a lot of ways.

” Change is good when done correctly, change can be bad when we don’t truly understand”

Societies of our past may seem like it was a simpler life? What we of this Society always forget is, they were busy trying to make it better for us all today, only because we of today think, we are the best and brightest of all Societies. Every Society has had their challenges, but unless we respect those of the past, we will forever be lost within the clouds of our judgments.  We of this Society are so lost within the clouds, we can not see clearly enough, to walk our paths without tripping up on the bumps along the path. A lot of times we take action on something, without thinking through the ramifications of those actions, with all the technology we have today and yet, we can all be so dumb at the same time? In a lot of ways, technology has made us all fat, dumb and lazy.

Then there is thing called Political Correction, which now has us all fearing the ” I am offended” dilemma we are in today. If you can’t handle the truth, then stay home in the backyard under that rock which you crawled out from under. We say so many untruths today, that we totally have no idea between fiction or truth anymore, we hide behind our technology while we are on our social media, but really how social is this media, that we hide behind our technology on? Because we are on this so called social media, we then are not outside being social with each other anymore, instead we do nothing but stab each other in the back and create this thing called hate we see around us today. This journey through life was never about the hate and ugliness we see today, this is on us the people of this Society.

The roads never start out being paved and smooth, we are the ones that do the paving and make them smooth, but lately in this Society all the paved roads have become broken and riddled with cracks? As we all have become so lazy, all the infrastructure around us that Societies of the past have built for us, has become run down and broken and time to be rebuilt, the problem then lies with we the people being stuck to our so called ” social media”. Video games and how they have evolved over time and how they have become so addicting to so many in this Society, they to like our social media have torn us away from each other and totally have us glued behind our technology. It is time we get back to socializing face to face once again, time we stop being so negative of everything around us, it is time we share the love within us with each other, so we than can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and happiness we all so deserve and until we do this, the roads will become worse, with more cracks and bumps to trip us up.

 

” The roads were never paved and smooth as we ourselves had to get out and do the paving to make them smooth”

” Technology is good when it is used to make us better and stronger moving forward, but it is bad when it makes us fat, dumb and lazy”

” How social is social media when all it does is, have us hide behind it instead of actually being face to face with each other”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Divine Mercy Sunday

Forest

” Then he said to Thomas, put your finger here and see my hands , then bring your hand and put it into my side and do not be unbelieving, but believe”

*** John 20:27***

 

 

True we walk a path through this journey of life, a lot of times the path is littered with debris, or within the fog of reality, there are also many twists and turns that, you just never know what is around the next corner? With the debris on the path, there are also many bumps that will try to knock us down at times, but really it is not on how you go down, it is all about how you pick yourself from the fall and move forward better and stronger along your path for which you choose.

While walking the path you choose, you will see many things that will have you dumb founded, as well as maybe second guessing yourself? You may see others that seem to be walking faster and smoother than you? You will also at times think that why me does all the crap come to, instead of coming to those that seem to be okay as they pass you by? We never think for once that, they to at a different time have also gone through a difficult time, to which they have struggled, that is because we personalize or internalize everything around us, we forget that if we only keep truly the faith in ourselves, keep truly the faith in Jesus Christ, we to can walk as swiftly or as smooth as all of those around us. Plus when we keep the faith in Jesus Christ, we will never unbelieve in him, when we totally believe in Jesus Christ, we then will always have the faith in all we do, with the hope to travel smoothly along our paths of this journey.

No matter how dense or how much fog may be on the paths we walk, with complete faith and belief in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the clouds of our judgments will be cleared so we can see clearly along our paths, make the right choices to walk smoothly along the bumps, without becoming tripped up by them. We also will be able to see clearly the hand of Jesus waiving at us and pointing us in the direction to the path of true righteousness. Jesus is always there for each of us, we just have to truly believe, so we than can see clearly, as we keep the faith always, which then gives us the hope in all we do throughout this journey.

The path we take will always never be paved and yes there will be bumps to step over, but if we do step into a bump then trip and fall, it is never on how you fall, the most important part to the fall is, the way we pick ourselves up to keep moving forward, without getting stuck within the fall and struggling to get back to our feet.  There has to be some turbulence for us to get through, or this journey we walk, will be too easy and then we won’t get a chance to become better and stronger, as there will be no turbulence to challenge us, that makes us stronger moving forward.

Just as we watch our steps along our path, don’t forget about what’s lurking within the shrubs and bushes along the path as well? There will be something that may jump out and scare the Holy crap out of us, something that we never will have anticipated, something that just might try to take us out as we walk along our paths. There are many things along this journey that we need to watch out for, but when we keep total faith and belief in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, we than can get through anything and nothing will ever keep us down for too long, so we then can walk this journey in peace and happiness always.

 

” Divine mercy is the recognition of the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of Jesus Christ that is within us all”

” Jesus Christ came to us and walked his journey with us, to teach and get us all to truly believe in him and his father Lord God of all creation”

” Let’s never forget that when we have complete faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then there will always be hope in all we do moving forward”

” There are no paved paths throughout this journey through life, it is how we walk our paths that makes them smooth as we move forward”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hidden trail……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The Hidden trail within Nature is only hidden if you don’t go out and explore what is around you. As you walk along trails like this, you just don’t know what lurks in your path? The trail is hidden deep within the woods and as you venture out on one trail, you just may come across many more like it, along your journey within Nature.

The wooden trail deep within the woods may scare some to not walking it, as they may not want to become lost in a place they are not familiar with, but that is part of the fun and having a good sense of direction and a knack of looking toward the sky and knowing where to go, as the position of the sun sets your course, this is what’s so intriguing about these kinds of trails, which then when you make it back to your camp site, now you have a sense of accomplishment that makes you feel good about yourself.

While walking along these trails you are within the homes of many animal life and plant life, to see some of these animals and plants you normally do not see, this is the exciting part of the trail, it makes for an interesting walk that has you looking deeply into what you see. Unlike our normal run of the mill walks within our neighborhoods, or maybe a lunch walk at work, it is awesome to get out and explore, just to see things you normally would never see. The biggest problem with this Society is, we don’t get away from our daily grind enough, so we can truly unwind and relax away the stress of the grind, instead we let the grind dictate our actions, which in a lot of cases, has us becoming someone we truly are not.

A nice walk within Nature and along the beauty of a hidden trail, in a lot of ways is better than the therapy you may pay for, as it is a natural type of therapy that soothes the soul and helps you breathe in fresh quality air, now don’t get me wrong it is nice to have someone to talk with to unload some of the daily grind, but it is also good to get out and explore things you normally would never explore, which then has you see what true beauty is and being one with Nature, now you can actually feel the stress of the daily grind, just lift out of your body, leaving you feeling lighter and more relaxed.

The hidden trail may not be that hidden in reality, but to you it is hidden, as it is the first time you have walked this trail, leaving you with a good feeling of accomplishment. Plus the setting up of a camp site, giving you a place to sleep within Nature as well as cook a meal over the open fire and the getting away from the daily grind for a short time, not only does this make you lose the time of day, now you become totally relaxed with the worries of the grind melting away from your brain, leaving you even more relaxed and a feeling like you will never feel, when you are within the daily grind and feeling like a robot that doesn’t stop. There is more to this journey of life than the nine to five daily grind, you just have to go out and find that trail, find that camp site, so you than can be truly of who you are, let the stress leave your body, so you than can be totally relaxed to enjoy your path through this journey of life.

 

” The hidden trail is not so hidden while you walk within it and explore all that is around you”

” A walk within nature is good for the soul and helps you unwind from the daily grind of the nine to fives”

” Go out and explore something new, as you never know what you may see or find, which will help you totally relax and truly be of who you are”

” The beauty of Nature is a great way to find that free therapy, to help you unload the stress to feel lighter and relaxed”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring flowers, time of rebirth……

Forest Flowers

 

We all want so badly to be done with Winter, but really we have had no winter like that of Winter’s past. Each year is made up of four seasons, where you have to get through one in order to get to the other. We all have our favorite season that we enjoy more than the other, but you can’t rush Mother Nature, nor can you rush the duration of each season. Very true that the Winter season breeds cabin fever, which has us getting itchy to get outside for our outside activities. You can’t rush the seasons, just like fine wine will never be sold til it is ready to be sold.

The many cycles of life include each season of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, in order to have a completed cycle you need all four seasons and without one season, now your cycle is incomplete. Now within this Society of, I want it now, or I want it my way, it can’t happen this way if you want a complete life cycle, you need to follow all the rules and in this case, you need to get through each season one by one, without skipping or abbreviating a season.

The smart way to get through each season is to, find an activity that is pertinent to that season, something that will help you escape the cabin fever and learn to accept and adapt. The cabin fever will lead to ” Depression”, which then will lead to laziness and low self esteem issues, it is when you keep moving within different activities, that you keep the cabin fever at bay and never letting it set in or control who you really are. I get that the Summer months is the favorite by far, only because of the warmer days and nights that allows you to venture outside, but there are three other seasons just as beautiful to enjoy, just learn to accept and adapt, so these seasons will be full of pleasure, with no displeasure that will annoy us.

Spring is a time for rebirth, time for all to change right before our eyes. It all starts with a Bud, then flourishes to a beautiful flower, full of life and color. With the Spring brings warmth also, just like the warmth of Jesus’s love deep within our hearts and souls, the warmth is a sign from God, that through change there is so much true beauty all around us. The warmth from the season of Spring isn’t just a sign for us to get outside away from the cabin fever, it is a sign from God showing us that, warmth is beauty just like the warmth of the feeling of love deep within us all. In Winter everything exhales and gets ready to hibernate into there cabin, while in spring everything inhales, to take in the warmth and show all the true beauty around them. With every inhale sprouts a new birth, something being reborn to show it’s true beauty to all. Even in the Winter that feeling of warmth never leaves us, just that we bury it and keep it from the cold on the outside.

The life cycle is made up of four seasons, you can’t complete any cycle with one season missing, which is why we need to learn to accept and adapt to change, so each season will come and go each year, with the same true beauty it is supposed to be. We need to truly understand the cycle of life, so we than can understand that with a complete cycle all is good, while with a incomplete cycle, now things are disrupted and we become troubled, when we are troubled, then the Society is troubled, as a Society is made up of each of us and what we bring to it, so when we bring trouble, now you have a society that is troubled and in need of a fix, to be better and stronger moving forward.

This journey through life has the one main cycle that evolves around us, then there is our own life cycle that evolves around us as we walk our paths through this journey. With each cycle we need to totally understand how they work, so we than can operate within them as healthy as we can, to understand the ups as well as the downs and even the comfortable  ruts within them, that can be just as bad as the down slides. There is more to each season that comes to us than just being cold or being warm, so let’s enjoy what is in front of us, let’s keep the warmth of Jesus’s love within our hearts always, so we then can be at peace, with much happiness always, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” There are four seasons within one year, you need to accept and adapt to get through each one better than those previous”

” Cabin fever is a feeling within us that has us feel closed in from the season of Winter, it is not an actual cabin that gets us sick with a fever”

” Spring is a time for rebirth and all to inhale the true beauty that is all around”

” The journey through life has it’s cycle for us to get around, just as we ourselves have our own cycle to get around along our path of the journey”

 

 

 

 

 

Relax… Let go… trust the flow within the journey

 

 

 

 

We within this Society get so caught up in the now, that we then forget to just simply trust our instincts, trust our guts, we get so wound up that we never actually let ourselves truly relax, as we totally need in order to be free of all unwanted stress. Just as this Kayak is flowing within the wind and the waves bumping it from side to side, The driver of this Kayak and the Kayak itself, are one in the same, totally entrusting of the wind and the waves.

Starting from way back in the beginning of Mankind, there was Adam and Eve, as they walked the land with all the fruits, they were not supposed to eat from the apple tree, but one day Eve enticed Adam and the rest is history, as the flood gates opened, that we now know as Sin. God entrusted them to not eat from the apple tree, but they could not resist and now from their actions, they have to own up and live with their actions moving forward. Just because you have made a bad choice, or maybe even a costly mistake, it is not the end of the World, God will forgive you totally for your mistakes or your sins, you simply just have to, own up, accept responsibility of your actions to move forward and not backwards.

We all throughout this journey of life have created many sins and made many mistakes, we are not perfect, but when we totally have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, There is no sin large enough nor any mistake complicated enough, that will detour us, from walking our paths through this journey of life. This journey is only of what you make it and will be either hard or easy, the choice is yours to make, just as it is also your choice to not show remorse, for any of your mistakes or sins. This journey has many twists and turns, but in no way should you be restricted from making any choices and when the mistakes come in, don’t try to hide them, as this is how we learn and move forward, to be better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we truly relax and let go of all the crap that may weigh us down, we will totally find that we can totally trust in ourselves, trust in Jesus Christ, which now we to can flow, very much like the Kayak within the water. Through Prayer we have learned to trust and have faith in Jesus Christ and with this faith, it will always give us hope in all we do as well. So yes Sin and mistakes will come to us, but when we totally accept them as such, take responsibility for our actions no matter how big or small, while we keep the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, so we than can have the hope to move forward throughout this journey and while we, walk in true peace and happiness always.

 

” Relax, trust, let go, so you can flow as smooth as the water flows down the stream”

” Sin and mistakes are par for the course along this journey, it’s what helps us learn and move forward better and stronger”

” Jesus Christ will always forgive us us for our sins and our wrongs, but first we have to forgive ourselves to receive his blessings and forgiveness”
