Busy as a Beaver……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

These little critters known to us as the Beaver, are very hard workers and are always in search of product to bring back to their homes. They are very smart in the way they build their home, as to us it is known as the Beaver dam, this Dam is very strong and once built is very hard to break down.

True these Beaver’s can be a pesky little Critter, as they don’t care where they build as long as they build and claim their territory. With these Beaver Dams comes a lot of dried up creek beds, with less water flowing along its path, as the water dry’s up on one side, now you have a lot of water on the other side and as it sits still, now floods over its banks, destroying the land that was once along the banks of the creek. Now that the creek is dried up on one side, the creek can’t continue to flow along its path, which starves all the plant life that was along its bank and as they starve, they become weak and fall to their death, making that area to us that was once vibrant, not so vibrant and beautiful.

These Beaver’s is a very busy Critters and not afraid to work hard at all, they can fall a tree with their razor sharp teeth, which is amazing knowing of their size, but these Beaver’s are kind of like we throughout this Society, as they don’t think of what will happen down the road, as they continue to build their Dams. The only difference between the Beaver and us is, we are driven by Greed and the greed that comes from our buildings, causes us to not think smartly, as we build anywhere, just to receive the money that comes from the sale of these buildings. We all have a brain, even the Beaver has a brain, but we then do not use our brains correctly as we forget to think about what will happen down the road, when we take action to build where we build.

The power of Greed is so strong, it will have us do things we normally would never do, greed will also give us false temporary feeling of power, as we think? We can do whatever we want, when we want to do it. With Greed we don’t think about who or what we hurt, which forces us to go against who we are, which makes this Society cold and unforgiving. When we use our brains properly, we then think better and care deeply of what will happen to all that is around, where we want to build. So yes we are all guilty to the way Society has become, simply with the way of our thinking and letting Greed affect us in the way that it does. Greed is a very powerful thing and will consume every fiber of our being when we let it, it is also a very strong force which will make it very hard to stay out of its way, when we get on board with Greed, we then become someone we truly are not and care not for who we hurt, as we will do anything to get even Greedier and all the self proclaimed power that we think we have. When we get consumed by Greed and build wherever we want to build, we then become like the Beaver and work hard at building every where we want to build, we then don’t use our brains properly and refuse to think down the road, at whatever or who we hurt just to become more Greedier, Then we ” think” we have all this self proclaimed power over everything even our fellow Man, it is very easy to get caught up within this Greedy Society, but when we think properly using our brains properly, then we all throughout Society, can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness with each other, as everything we look at, will be beautiful every time we look.

 

” The Beaver is a very hard worker, that really doesn’t think properly with its brain, to all it hurts as it builds its Dam blocking the creek from flowing along it’s path”

” Greed and all the self proclaimed power it brings, will have us always become someone we truly are not”

” The Beaver builds its dams quietly with its teeth, we build very loudly further hurting all that is around us”

 

Karma will always avenge those with false acquisitions

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Republicans…Democrats…Oh My!!!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I am sorry if I get a bit political this time, as this site is all about walking a path through a journey of life, with true facts starting with a thought, then streaming out my fingers onto a keyboard in to my computer, but with all the crap we have to go through and listen to as this Presidential race heats up, only warrants a view that most may not look deeply into.

There are two groups of people in the Democrats and the Republicans, that are controlled like Puppets by the Establishments or the powers to be of these two Parties, These powers to be are so egotistical, that they can not look deeply into everything they see.  just like the water in this picture, the crap coming out of these Establishments, also flows downward. Now we have the Establishment throwing a guy named Mitt Romney to the Wolfs and go against everything for which he stood for. I voted for Mitt cause he was the best choice to help fix the economy and bring jobs back to America from abroad, now he is blasting a guy who is the front runner of all the Candidates, a guy that had endorsed Mitt in his last run for President and Mitt said great things of him then, now he completely turned against him? Come on Mitt!!! Grow a back bone and stop being a puppet for these powers to be.

The American People are “Pissed” right now and they want “Real” change this time, not the so called change that was promised and never delivered from the the last two Presidential Elections. Massachusetts is the biggest one party state within this union and to have 20,000 Democrats leave their party, speaks volumes of just how ” Pissed” the American people really are. Our Government is way too big right now and each of the members within this Government are fighting with each other, instead of doing what they been sent there to do. The time is now for all within the Government to stand up and be counted, stand up and take responsibility for their actions (or none actions), start fixing the real problems within this Country, stop filling their pockets with money from all the special interest groups and just simply work together for the good of all Americans within this Country, known as the greatest Country, the United States of America.

I totally get the fact we all need a voice within this Government, but when the voices we have their now are fighting and not working together, then just how good or effective are our voices really being? All these career Politicians need to go as they are way to complacent to be effective at their jobs. The time is now for ” Real Change” and just maybe the time is now for a Business man to take over, treat this Country like a Corporation, then fix what has to be fixed, so this Country can be better and stronger moving forward. The first thing a CEO does to fix it’s company is, down size the company, make it smaller and more manageable, like Romney did of the Companies that he fixed or built, that made him as rich as he is. We all know that Government has become bigger over the years, with each committee that has been created, some of these committee’s are not needed anymore, so why are we the Taxpayer still paying for those within these committee’s? You want ” Real Change”, then just maybe the time is now for a Business man, instead of a politician, which most Politicians are Lawyer’s, that know how to jump through loopholes and know how to speak and say of what we want to hear. Donald Trump is only saying things we all Americans want to say, but simply don’t have the voice or platform to say them, plus a lot of what he is saying is correct and on point, the reason why other Candidates and all other Politicians are attacking him is, they are afraid of him and are afraid to simply say the true facts that Donald Trump has already said. The fact is that this Country is broken and in need of a major fix, the time is now to address the problems head on, fix what needs to be fixed, so we all throughout this great Country of America can move forward better and stronger and get back to the true meaning of ” living the American Dream”.

 

” The National debt is fast approaching 20 trillion dollars, what are the true facts of these Candidates to help reduce this debt”

” To fix any situation or problem you need to attack them head on and you need to work together without fighting, in order to fix them properly”

” The American Dream is not the same as it once was, the time is now to fix what we need to fix, to get this dream back to as strong as it once was”

 

The PowerBall Mania…

 

Power ball is a lottery that is combined from 44 of the 50 states here in America, This Wednesday night will be the highest jackpot in the history of all lotteries on this planet Earth at an estimated 1.3 billion……… Yes that’s a “B” for Billion. As each draw for the last few weeks has brought zero winners and with the jackpot piling up, this has become huge chatter everywhere you go. Everybody asking a simple question of each other, ” What would you do with a Billion dollars”?

The true answer to this question is quite simple, it is okay to dream cause in all likelihood, these kind of jackpots won’t happen to all of us throughout this Society. True someone or maybe a group of someones will win this and yes their lives will be changed forever.

Whoever thinks their life will stay the same, simply has no idea of what they will truly do with a large sum of money as this. 1.3 billion dollars is a large sum of money, but that is the gross amount, what a lot of people don’t want to admit to is the net sum of that amount. I am no Mathematician but after Uncle Sam and the State in which you live takes their cut, you are now left with in the neighborhood of 450,000,000 million. This is still a life changing amount and an amount that can either make you very happy or very sad, simply because people will be coming out of the woodwork, saying they are your friends and you will lose who your true friends are. You will also if you don’t pay attention, get lost within the clouds of your judgements and lose sight of who you truly are. You will start buying everything you always wanted, but could never afford it before. We all walk a path through this journey of life, it is not about all the material things we accumulate,  it is totally about how we live our lives, as we walk these paths through this journey we are all on.

1.3 billion or 450,000,000 million is very much a life altering amount for anybody, especially if it comes to you all at once. Nobody is ever truly prepared for this kind of money either, which is why you need to plan your plan, than work that plan without getting away from the plan. I am not a Financial planner, nor do I pretend to be one one, but for me I would hire one, to help guide me on my new path along this journey of life, with the new found wealth I was fortunate to win in this, the biggest of all lotteries in the history of this Planet.

Any amount of money that you should be fortunate enough to come into will change you in many ways, which makes it even more important that we never lose sight of who we truly are, we never get lost within the clouds of our judgements. When we do get lost within the clouds, we then become someone we are not and then we portray this fake self, which is nothing but living a lie of ourselves, towards all those around us and then we get so caught up in the lie, we find that we lose sight of how to get out of the lie, then we get left with one option and that is to continue the lie, to which we become very unhappy throughout the rest of our journey, as we walk our paths in our lives.

Now it would be nice if we could all be very wealthy and with this wealth comes being very happy, but unfortunately with wealth it isn’t true happiness and true happiness is felt within and not  from any amount of money. Within this Society we may come to believe that wealth brings great happiness, only because within this Society we have all become greedy and self centered to everything around us. This is reality and a reality that is very sad, but the only way for each of us to truly change this reality, is for each one of us throughout Mankind, to simply share the love within us all. with each other, as we all walk our paths throughout this journey of life, everyday of our existence.

 

” Power ball is a lottery that has us all dreaming a fantasy, it is okay to dream but we need to dream reality, in order for the fantasy to be all our reality’s”

” any sum of money that may come our way is a life changing amount, as it will have us think in ways we never thought we would think before”

” The odds of all of us within this Society being a winner of any amount of money are so great, that if we all held our breathe there would be no more Mankind to walk their paths of this journey through life”

” True happiness is felt deep within our hearts and souls just like the love we all have within us, when we lose these feelings then we have become someone we truly are not”

 

The Baptism of Faith

Creek

 

Throughout this journey of life, when we have total faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we will always acknowledge and know what the word Baptize truly means. Those of us who actually go to church, what is the first thing you do when you walk in the door of the Church? You dip your fingers into a ceramic bowl with Holy water, now I wonder if anybody knows what to do next? You make the sign of the cross on yourself then continue to go to your Pew, so you can kneel before God and Jesus and ask for them to forgive us of our sins.

This is what we all do each and every Sunday as we enter into the house of God. Within this Society of Political Correction and All about me, we have become lost within the clouds of our judgements and seem to have lost the true faith of ourselves let alone our Savior Jesus Christ.  To some this Faith is so far gone that, they don’t even believe in God, the creator of all Mankind. When we let go of this Faith, then all heck breaks loose and we not only doubt each other, but we doubt ourselves and who we truly are. We are a Society in Turmoil right now and it will take each and every one of us, to regain this faith and show our love of ourselves with each other, instead of giving in to the Temptation of Evil and getting sucked in to the Drama of Hate.

We all come to this Earth in the same way, as a little precious Child that needs affection and care everyday. We get taught how to live within Society. We get Baptized in the house of God at a young age, when we are Baptized is when the belief of Faith begins and the journey along a path we walk starts. This Baptism is what lets us look deeply into what we see, it also helps us to see who we truly are before we become lost within the clouds of our judgements. In Today”s Society some do not get Baptized, simply because others don’t truly have an idea what the true faith is, then they stop another from truly having Faith and from looking deeply into what they see.

These paths we all walk through this journey of life and yes there are many of them, to which the paths may be different, but the journey is all the same. These paths have twists and turns, bumps and bruises and they will test us as we walk them, but these tests as much as we might think, will never fail us, but they will make us better and stronger throughout this entire journey we are on in our lives. The way we become better and stronger is the acknowledgment of God and the Faith in him as well as in ourselves and as we walk into the house of God every Sunday and kneel before him, so we then can ask for his forgiveness, plus with the faith in him and ourselves, will always have us looking deeply into what we see, so we then can see that when we are Baptized from a young age, this Baptism continues when we enter the house of God each and every week, dip our finger into the basin of Holy water and give ourselves the sign of the cross.

 

” Baptism is a special time in all our lives, its the Faith that keeps it special everyday along our paths of this journey through life”

” Sometimes we dip our finger into the Holy water in the house of God, cause we simply think we are suppose to do it like the others”

” To truly acknowledge the Baptism into the Faith of God, we will always look deeply into what we see and know truly who we are”

 

 

The road to a Championship

Forest

 

The road to any Championship within any sport you may play, are full of unknowns, trials and tribulation. Now I am a New England Patriot fan not just of long standing, but I am what is known as the hometown Homey, with that said…….. I have also lived through the toughest of times when these Patriots lost more than they win, now with these Patriots of the last fifteen years winning more than they lose, I have earned the success this team has given me.

Since Bill Belichek and Tom Brady took the reigns of this franchise, the New England Patriots have become one of the best teams within the history of the National Football League, not too mention the best Quarterback/Coach tandem as well. You had the Steeler’s of the 1970’s, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s that were great dynasties of their time and right now it is the New England Patriots who have become that great dynasty. Unfortunately with success comes the hater’s and in today’s World, the haters are ten times worse than of any other time. You also had the New York Yankees throughout their winning days within Baseball and became the most hated team within their sport, it happens because when a team gets so dominant and beats regularly other teams, it’s the fans that bring out this hatred of the team that their team can not beat.

” a team can only be a Champion when they step up to the plate and beat a true Champion with regularity”

I get the fact that the fans want to play and pick these fantasy teams to compete with each other, but these fantasy games have completely ruined all sports and completely took away any integrity that these sports had.  ” Let the real players stand up and play the game they love to play”. These fantasy teams that the fans pick, are just that fantasy. They are not real teams and from what I see all the other owner’s throughout the NFL, want these fantasy teams to make it look like their teams are doing okay? Roger Goodell the Commissioner of the NFL, is in power from the board of directors of the league and who are these directors? All the owners of all 32 teams in the NFL. When it comes to the New England Patriots, all the other Owners are the ones that have hated on this team the most, simply because they have made their teams look completely silly throughout all that watch the NFL. What I say to these Owners is, time to step up to the plate and beat a real Champion (fair and square) that the Patriots have become, so your teams can have a share of what being a Champion truly feels like.

It is not about the Patriots laying down so other teams can catch up to the curve, it is all about the other teams of the NFL catching up to the Patriots on the field fair and square. These Patriots throughout their history in the NFL have seen times where they lose more than they win, they didn’t whine and cry like the teams of today, no!! They just stepped up to the plate and with much hard work, became one of the best Franchises in the history of the NFL, it’s time the other teams follow the path of these Patriots, so maybe one day they to can become a True Champion.

” A True Champion doesn’t just happen, first there comes dedication, hard work and perseverance”

” instead of whining and crying and creating hate of a team, step up to the plate to beat a true champion and become the champion”

” Hard work is what defines Tom Brady and the number one reason why he has been so good for so long”

 

” The keeping up with the Jones”…

Waterfall

 

Who are the Jones? And why do we need to keep up with them?

Who knows when or even why this saying has been around so long? All this saying does is turn each of us against each other and stops us from truly being who we really are. Just like the saying of ” having the American dream”, we all think we know what this is for example, big house, white picket fence, two cars with garages, wife/husband, children, wealth and our own piece of the pie. Unfortunately throughout this Society of today, this American dream has caused us to step on each others shoe shine, to the point no matter what we do, nothing shines around us anymore. We all have our issues and our struggles throughout this journey of life, we all want the American dream and keep up with the Jones part of the pie, but unfortunately we have all gone the wrong way and find ourselves exerting all our energy at swimming up the stream of the waterfall, instead of making it easy and simply flowing as the current down this stream within this picture.

It is okay for some good fun and competition between us, but when this good fun and competition turns to ugliness, like we see around us today, you think we need to truly change and look deeply into everything that is around us? Competition between two Sports Teams is part of the game and the magic word is “game”. We as Individuals who watch these teams, have taken this competition to an all new level, a level that has turned us all against each other, cause we don’t see it as a game anymore, we see the friendly competition between two Teams and have turned this competition into, an ugly competition that has forced us to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, without truly being who we really are.

We all have a purpose in life, we all set our goals so we can find what our purpose truly is. I understand we all have our issues and struggles along our paths, but when we don’t address and fix these issues, the struggles will never end and we will never find out what our true purpose really is. Life is a journey that we all walk along a path, the journey may be the same, as the path and the purpose are all different to each of us, not everybody has to keep up with the Jones to achieve true happiness, as well as not everybody will achieve the American dream for true happiness also, true happiness comes from each of us, addressing the issues and fixing them, so we all can find our purpose and walk our paths in peace, with true happiness along this journey of life.

 

” The journey through life may be the same, but the path and the purpose is much different to each one of us”

” The struggles and issues of life may have us swimming up stream into the waterfall, but addressing the issues and fixing the struggles will have us swim down stream, making our paths more peaceful with happiness”

” good competition between us is okay, but when it turns ugly is when we have to change the game, to make the competition fun again”

 

The Job Market of Today

                              In this day and age, it’s not about getting the best and brightest, so each company can compete, be better and stronger, in which to achieve great success. Now it is all about the bottom line, hiring people for cheaper money, so they can get to the next level of tax excemptions, with the economy the way it is, all the unemployed people out there, it is a very cut throat enviroment out there, definatly an employer market, so they get to pick and chose wisely, then you have to deal with those companies that have laid off, have seen that they can be productive with fewer employers, so when all is well, they elect not to hire anybody fresh or bring back more help. This leaves the unemployed to change their ways of looking for the next career, you try to word your resume with the right “keywords”, then re-word the resume, as to not sound so experienced, but yet still be competitive, with others out their looking. You never want to “dummy-down”, your resume to the point of cutting off your right arm, to save the left. There is no right answer, just right timing and hoping your timing is in the right place at the right time, You want to be confident in your abilities, without crossing the line of cockiness. In this day and age, the Job Market is a tough one, as all the employer’s that are hiring, seem to be doing so at a lower pay scale, just to have a warm body in there, so they can recieve that tax exemption, instead of looking for the best and brightest, so they can keep competing, have that edge over other companies and prosper in the long haul. The day of Individuality are gone, it’s all about the corporation and what can you do for my corporation. This breeds hatred and negativity, to the point of, we as Individuals can’t afford to just be ourselves. In this Society today, being true to yourself is hard as you just get left behind, if you become something your not, it may land a good career now, but in the long haul, will you truely be happy? In this Corporate world in which we live, is nothing but Fiction and non reality, also something of which, is the total opposite, of the foundation in which this Country was built.
