There is a Destiny within the Journey

This quote by the late Stuart Scott is an awesome quote, as you can change a few words, to have it go in whatever direction you want it to go in. Like you can take out the word Cancer and have something like this:

 

” You walk a path through this journey of life, By how you live and in the manner in which you live, so you can create your own destiny for which to live”

 

While walking through this journey, there will be many bumps that will bruise us, many obstacles that we need to get either over or around, sometimes we bring on these obstacles or bumps by our own in actions and sometimes they come from other sources? But either way this journey of life can be either as smooth as we want, or so bumpy, that we never truly give ourselves a chance to heal and move forward correctly.

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the TV show NCIS? This show has been on the air for sixteen seasons now, the writer’s of the show are some of the best writer’s of any show and the topics they write, as well as the episodes that air, are pretty much as real as you can get, within the reality of life. Then there are the Actors of the show, these Individuals are like a car salesman, they have to believe in and become one with the Character they play, to completely sell the show to all of us as the viewer, not too mention making a connection to all of us as we watch each and every week.

Pauley Perrette………… AKA  Abby Sciuto, throughout her journey of all sixteen seasons on the show, has made millions of connections and has become a role model to many who have watched this show of NCIS. She has inspired so many and with her Goodbye episode this past Tuesday night,  there were many teary eyed people throughout the viewing Audience of the show. Abby’s journey throughout the show was of, kindness, empathy and compassion, as she worked her magic of forensics while she helped the team solve a lot of crimes. No matter how ugly each case was, Abby always saw the good and it showed in her actions, her sweet kindness made all the ugliness, look as beautiful of as a Rose. As Abby was on the show, Pauley Perrette is the same in real life, it was like Abby was actually playing herself on the show, which is how this show became so unique and how the show became so popular throughout the World. Yes we will all miss Abby, but as she moves forward on her journey away from NCIS, we too shall move forward throughout our journey along our paths. We all will still watch the show, as these writer’s keep bringing us back, with their creativity and suspense they keep us in. It is just like this journey, the Character’s and the events may change, but the journey keeps moving forward for all.

True that NCIS is a TV show and we all watch it in our realities, but when you have a writer’s room full of very creative writer’s and willing to explore topics of reality within the show, now you have the makings of one of the best shows ever, in the history of this invention called a television and the Character’s within the show, do their part within the show, to sell the show to each of us week after week. True it sucks when you watch a show and make a connection with one or two of the Character’s then they leave the show for whatever reason, but as they move forward with their journey’s, we to must move forward with our journey’s, as we all walk our paths within our reality, throughout this big journey called life.

 

” A good quote can stand the test of time and inspire us in many ways”

” The destiny within the journey varies between you and I, you just need faith in yourself and hope within the journey”

” The NCIS writer’s are very creative Individuals and know how to create the perfect words to keep us all in suspense from week to week”

” You make connections with certain Actor’s and when they leave the show you miss them deeply but you both move forward within reality”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stop/ Reflect/ Take time/ Move forward

” A Leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, ” if you wish you can make me clean”, moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, ” I do will it, be made clean” “.

MK 1: 40-41

 

With yet another season of Lent upon us, please Jesus give us all Christians the strength, to stand up, come together in unity, so we all can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so long for. We within this fast paced Society, a pace so fast we drive ourselves crazy just to try to keep up, a pace so fast that everything passes us by, before we even get a chance to stop and really look deeply at what just passed us, a pace so fast that if you blink, you then just missed something of importance, which you than can never get it back.

The season of Lent is a time for all Christians to take inventory of their journey til now and simply cleanse themselves of the crap, so they can move forward better and stronger, along their path of this journey. Jesus walked his journey here with us, he walked the forty day journey which is Lent, he was tempted by many things, as he showed us, when you stay true to who you are, there is no temptation strong enough that will take control, or force us into becoming someone we truly are not. The season of Lent is a season of change and when we change for the better, then all our journey’s will be better moving forward, Through the fasting or the change, there are things required like eating fish on Friday etc……. Within this Society some may look at this change as too drastic, but if you follow the steps of Jesus Christ, you will find this forty day journey a lot easier than you think.

The forty day journey to some may be intimidating, it may also be frowned upon as most don’t truly understand of the journey, but the forty day journey through reality, will not only help you become better moving forward, it will also cleanse your body, mind and soul, to eliminate all the crap and replace it with all the good, that will have you feel deeply your true feelings, get back in touch with the love and empathy that is deep within us all, so we than can share it with each other and make the whole World a better place for us all to walk our paths through this journey of life.

When the Leper came to Jesus, he found out no matter of who you are, there is no one that he will not help. You just have to not only have faith in yourself, you also have to have complete faith in Jesus Christ as well, with this faith you will then be granted the hope of not just a better you, but the hope for a better journey as well. This forty day journey is us sacrificing part of ourselves now, so we can truly find of who we are and move forward along this journey better and stronger then we have ever been, True the forty day journey of Lent is the fasting for Christians, but in no way does Jesus discriminate this journey for whoever wants to walk it, his arms are open wide to all, who may be of interest to walk it, as we all should learn truly from Jesus, so we than can walk this journey of life, just like we walk the forty day journey, so all of us, can find the true peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

 

” Stop, reflect, take time, move forward, take stock in your life, to be better and stronger throughout this journey”

” The Leper who some may simply turn the other cheek to, but Jesus stopped to help him be better and stronger”

” The season of Lent may be the fasting for Christians, but it is a season open to all, for the proper change throughout the journey of life”

” Never be intimidated, never frown upon anything, always stay true to who you are and always have complete faith, keeping the hope within your grasp”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solitude versus Loneliness

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

This Birch tree sitting on it’s own little island may seem lonely at first glance, but it is vibrant and full of life as you can see, it has other plant life around it, just that they all use their space wisely and coexist within a tight space.

We within this Society of today, really have no clue anymore the difference between solitude and loneliness. Solitude is finding that quiet space so you can collect your thoughts, turn the negative thoughts into positive thoughts, so we than can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward and while being vibrant and full of life like this Birch tree. Being lonely is not having anywhere to turn when in need, not knowing of how to find that place of solitude, so you than can turn your negatives into positives. Not truly knowing of how to deal with others, so you can have a place to lean when the need is there. Being lonely is a place that will have us stew with our negative thoughts, then one day with all the negativity…………Boom!!! we erupt ¬†into someone we truly are not. Loneliness is a place we get into, simply because we think it is safer to bury our feelings, instead of letting them out and expressing ourselves deeply, which then leaves us in a less vibrant position, then the position this Birch tree is, in this picture.

Loneliness is something we do when we want to escape to where we think safety is? Usually it is a place we go and put up this force field not letting anything or anybody within this field. We get so lost within that, not only do we not let anybody in, we then get lost as to how to get out of the loneliness, our negative thoughts then become dominate and we become someone we truly are not. Within this Society of many and when we are all lost within this loneliness, will bring out all the ugliness of which we are living now.

We don’t truly communicate with each other anymore and a big part of that is the Political Correction that engulfs us today, simply because we are so afraid to offend each other, we then move forward in this loneliness, which furthers us deeper into our own little world of loneliness. The Political Correction has forced us into this loneliness, which then has us all stewing deeply with all our negative thoughts, instead of changing the negativity into a positive. There are so many different factors to walking this journey, that if we don’t truly understand all the factors, we will wander through blindness, instead of walking peacefully along this journey through life.

There is so much loneliness within this Society, we need to start addressing it properly, so we all can get to our own places of solitude and then, we can start turning our negatives into positives. Until we start learning the real difference between loneliness and solitude, none of us will ever get to that happy place, which will then leave all the ugliness in the rear view mirror. We can and will get to our place of Solitude, but we first need to, see past all the ugliness, the hurt and the pain, see past all this Political Correction that engulfs us, communicate better with each other, so we than can find true solitude, which will then lead us onto a smooth path to walk, along this journey through life.

 

” Solitude is a happy place for us to go and mend ourselves of all negativity and fill us with the positive thoughts needed to walk smoothly along this journey”

” Loneliness is a place we go that we think is safe to escape reality and stew within our negative thoughts”

” Sometimes we need to get away from everything so we can recharge, change our negative thoughts into positive thoughts and heal ourselves to move forward better and stronger”

” This Political Correction that has engulfed all we do has hurt us deeply within more than we really think, time to change and end this process before it ends each one of us and our mental thought process”

 

A piece of History……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The delivery of the History lesson and the way the teacher teaches the lesson………… Okay it might need some excitement brought into the lesson, but when you simply go out within Nature and explore, makes for a great way to learn all the History you want to learn about.

Rockwood is a small town within northern Maine at the tip of Moosehead lake toward the north and not far from the Canadian border. It is always fun to learn of these places, where you don’t venture to all that often, so you can see how the town was born, what resources came from this town and who was the first settlers of this town. Maine is one of those States that is full of History, some maybe you do know, but a lot you never knew. When some come here for a visit a lot of times they don’t take the time to truly learn of the History, only they jump into their boats and go so fast, the History goes right over their heads, without them really learning of where they are.

Yes the Ice Age was real and something that truly happened along this journey through life, this life evolves in cycles and each cycle is round, so over time, there are times that keeps repeating itself, just like the life cycle of each one of us, within our cycles there are the up’s as well as the down’s, things happen to us within our cycles for a reason and it is us that needs to find the reason, so we can be better informed as our cycle turns round and round, the same goes for the cycles within the journey as well, they also happen for a reason and unless we understand truly the reason, we will never truly understand any History that is right in front of us.

History has proven time and time again, that the Native Indian here in America was here first, it is us the White man that invaded them and pushed ourselves into their home. We cut down all the tree’s, developed all the land and all simply for the greed, then once we got a taste of the greed, we then let the greed control truly of who we are. Okay there have been some of our elected officials over the History of these United States that actually had a brain and with that brain, they have declared some of the land here a National land or park, where it is protected from any development, so there are is still some true beauty for us to get out and explore, but that still doesn’t make it right that we invaded and developed a good chunk of this land and all in the name of greed.

True that all this land within North America is rich with resources that we need, but there is a difference between taking the resources to make our lives better and taking the resources, just to line our pockets with greed. The biggest problem with the History of this great land of America is, we the People………. We the People have destroyed a big chunk of this land, just for the greed and could care less of any History that the land may hold. Mount Kineo was formed from the Ice Age of over 10,000 years ago, it was a place the Native Americans fished, hunted and gathered the Kineo Rhyolite, which is a durable stone for them to make their tools, this was also considered one of the best finds in all of North America. It is fun to learn of all this History and even more fun, to get out and explore as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

In the 1800’s the Moose river to Moosehead lake became the premier waterways for reaching all the logging roads within the woods of Maine and Rockwood, became the staging grounds for the full scale logging operations. Rockwood is truly a beautiful place and when you really learn of it’s History, makes it even more beautiful a place to visit and get away from the daily grind.

Every State within these United States is rich with their own History and to truly learn of the History, we need to get out and explore, instead of just developing the land, to fill our pockets with the greed, or not truly focusing on the history and getting lost within the journey for which we walk.

 

” Mount Kineo is one of those hidden gems, that most have no idea of what or even where it is”

” The native American was here first, as we the white man invaded and took their homes away from them”

” There are many places like Rockwood throughout this country, just that we have to get out and explore to see all the true beauty”

” There is much wildlife throughout the area of northern Maine, with the American Bald Eagle taking up residence there as well”

” The American Bald Eagle is such a big powerful bird and is fun to just sit and watch as they fly through the sky with the greatest of ease”

 

How Beautiful life really is……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I sit here looking out on to the lake, forget what day it is and who cares what time it is, of whatever day? All the worries and the stress just seem to melt away, as you look out on to the lake, with the sun’s glitter moving ever so slowly. You hear the Loons of in the distance ( which are the Maine state bird), chatting with each other, then as you look toward the sky, an American Bald Eagle goes flying over head with the greatest of ease, an adult mature Eagle at that, with the white head, tail and the golden beak. How beautiful life really is, without the crap of the everyday drama and the stress that comes with our 9 to 5’s, or within the cities of our Society.

We are truly blessed to be able to walk our paths through this journey of life, just that we get so consumed with the crap and the ugliness, that we don’t take the time to truly see and look deeply into what is around us. There is so much more to life than what we may think? Or what we think we may know from our daily grind? There is a whole new World out there, just that we need to stop, slow down and really look deeply into what we see. Yes technology has taken over and with that the Media thinks they have to share “ALL” the crap, just so they can fill their pockets with greed. We the People as much as we don’t think are the ones in control of our own destiny’s.

When the water is calm, the Oar passes through the the water like a hot knife through butter, with each stroke of the Oar, now you move forward within your canoe and the sound of the Oar passing through the water is so relaxing, even though you are working to go from point A to point B. Although when you paddle the Oar slowly, now you can enjoy whatever animal that may come to the lakes shore, for their daily splash and drink. Simply because you are being as quiet as a Church Mouse, not to scare or startle the beauty you are looking at.

Look out on to the Lake and see the shore on the other side, what is over there you wonder? Maybe other Camper’s? Maybe a Moose or Deer, or maybe a Bear, just like on the side your on? Then you think just how nice this is, to be able to share this beauty with other species. There is so much more to this journey through life than our daily grind and a lot more species also walk their paths through this journey with us, we are not alone, but we carry on like we are alone with our current actions, instead of really looking deeply into into what we see, as we walk our paths through this journey through life.

 

” The American Eagle so Majestic and beautiful, flying through the air with the greatest of ease”

” The sounds of the Loon may be different to those who do not know of the bird, but these sounds do relax if you just sit and listen”

” Blessed be God for all this true beauty, so we can get out and enjoy all that is around us”

” The Oar passing through the calm water is so soothing and relaxing, helps make the stress and the drama just melt away”

 

Just pause and simply be kind!!!

When Jesus came to us and walked his journey, he never got caught up in all the hatred, he never had bad words of who was around him, when others around him took to this practices, all he did was to pray as he showed nothing but love for them and all else around them. Jesus walked among us with just the clothes on his back, as he spread his fathers words and love to us all, he never spoke Ill of those who didn’t believe, he only kept spreading the love of God, that is within us all.

Another summer is near to a close, with the season of fall right around the corner. With that……… Another school year is about to open as the children go back to school. Now for some some children this brings a lot of anxiety as they dread walking within the corridors of their school. Schools can be a very happy place for some, as for others it can a very scary place, that brings much pain and tears. Children of all ages can be very cruel to each other, especially when they try hard just to fit in themselves. Peer Pressure is a very powerful force that will engulf and control all those within it’s grasp, it will also force you into being someone you really are not, all while you create a “VICTIM”, as you Bully them in front of those you so want to try to fit into with. When you become a Bully yourself, now you become addicted to the power and will stop at nothing to continue this behavior, so you can seem at first glance to ones you are trying to impress, as a very powerful person and they need you within their Cliche. A Bully is nothing but a Coward that has pain deep within themselves, of which they are to scared to face themselves, a Bully is also a person like those in which they Bully, There is no one that is more powerful than anyone, as we all walk a path, here along this journey through life.

We have all been a Victim of being bullied at some point in our lives, we all know the pain and suffering that comes with being bullied, then why do we all do nothing of this behavior? Why are we all so caught up in the ugliness, without seeing the true beauty around us? Why do we let ourselves be so consumed with trying to achieve the power over all? What really does having all the power bring? When our children do things wrong and are caught Bullying those around them, then why do we always say, ” he/she is a good person and will never do that”? These are all legit questions for each of us and questions that we as a Society need to really look deeply into. We as a Society are responsible for all the Bullies out there and we as a Society can end all the Bulling now. Our words and our actions have created all these Bullies, as well as all the ugliness around us, the time is now to end all this crap, the time is now to seriously change our words and what we say, as well as thinking deeply of our words, before we take the action of our words.

Being a Bully is a sickness and we as a Society have the Antidote to end this sickness. Each and every one of us needs to stand up against all Bullies no matter of who they are, so they can cower away like the true Coward they are. Then we all need to truly change our ways, change the words we say and really Change, the way we take action of our words, let’s show more Empathy of each other, so the love of God within us, can spread like wildfire among us. When Jesus came and walked his path among us, he showed us just how to walk peacefully, while we have empathy of each other, he showed us that the love of God is within us, we just have to truly feel it, so we than can spread it among each other, he never showed us how to hate, as this is on us as a Society, because we have lost all faith and have given up, so we then take to being consumed in the ugliness, just so we can hide within ourselves, instead of being who we ¬†truly are. This journey is not really that hard, it is we as a Society that have made it hard, the time is now to walk our paths correctly as Jesus showed us, so we all can walk our paths peacefully and within happiness, throughout this journey of life.

 

” It is much harder learning to hate, then letting the kindness and the love already within us just flow naturally from us”

” The time is now to end all Bullies and it will take each of us within this broken Society”

” The power of a Bully requires the fear from a Victim, with less Victims, there will be less Bullies”

” Being a Bully is a Sickness and each of us within this Society, has the Antidote to this sickness”

 

The Colors of Nature

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The many colors within Nature have a beauty all to their own,

There is so much of Nature we take for granted cause we don’t take the time,

Nature is there for us to explore and unwind from the daily struggle,

Each of the leaves in this picture may have a different color,

But they are also so alike as well, they have veins running through the leaf,

they bud from a tree, okay maybe a different kind of tree,

But a tree none the less as they coincide together in the harmony of Autumn,

These leaves show their true beauty as they come together with other leaves,

They don’t separate from one another as they go about their journey,

Natures beauty is so beautiful because all within it,

comes together in harmony, comes together in unity and,

never lets any ugliness enter within the confounds of Nature.

 

We within this ugly Society don’t take the time to even notice Nature,

Never mind of what is within Nature itself,

We are too consumed with the ugliness around us we don’t notice the beauty,

We are all so concerned with the attitude of I need it now,

That we don’t take the time to truly notice all that is around us,

We are so focused on the nine to five, that we forget there is more out there,

Truly we are in a broken Society today, but it can be fixed,

Just by all of us coming together in harmony, coming together in unity,

So we then can notice all the true beauty around us,

As we then can take the time to explore and take it all in,

Then we all can walk our paths of this journey in peace.

 

We all walk a path through a life within this journey,

Sometimes the path has many bumps that will bruise us,

Then as we become bruised we then hurt with real pain,

we try to deal with the pain but as the pain deepens,

We then get lost within the pain and try to bury it deep within,

When we try to bury the pain, we then get lost within the clouds of our judgments,

We become someone we truly are not and try to move forward as best we can,

Then before we know it, we are now caught up in the fake world we created,

Within this fake reality there is no true beauty of anything around us,

Not even Nature with it’s true beauty, will be beauty to us,

This fake reality we created will keep us from seeing deeply of what is around us,

It will keep us in a world of negativity instead of seeing any positive things,

There is a lot more to walking our paths of this journey,

Than just seeing all the negatives and forming our opinions from that,

True peace and true happiness will help us all in noticing all the beauty around us,

As we then can relax totally while we then look deeply within,

the true colors and beauty of all the leaves within Nature.

 

” The true colors of this journey through life are vibrant and beautiful”

” There are many colors all around us, just look deeply into what you see”

” Don’t be so negative and the colors will be at their brightest all around you”
