” The road of this journey is not always paved and not as green as you may think
Those of this new generation of today, life wasn’t all full of a rose pedal path and as easy as simply jumping into a car and pressing a button to start it. Cell phones…………. These gadgets didn’t exist back in a time where, people didn’t even know you existed, unless you made the long journey into town, either by horseback or you walked which took most of the day to get to your destination, then you had to stay over night in the local boarding house and continue back home in the morning, all just to pick up a few needed supplies for where you lived.
Work you ask? You probably just stayed home to work your farming land so you can have a great crop to pick, as this was like gold to you, because it’s the crop that put the food on your table, with the extra used to barter for more supplies you may need. Barter you ask? This was a way to exchange things with others, with no money passing hands, but in order to barter, you had to have something of value for the person that had something of value for you. It was a whole different World back then, one that the new generation of today and especially when the schools of today do not even teach classes that will teach them of the times where you worked hard, before you even thought about playing hard, or even taking a vacation.
The Technology of today in a lot of ways has made us all weak and lazy. Like right now with the Christmas season upon us, We are all full of anxiety and stress because we get ourselves so worked up, because we can’t find what we want at the store, or when we find that something we literally fight with another as they to grab for that same something? Only we ourselves have to blame for letting the World of today, get as ugly and full of hatred as it has come to. Life way back when it may of seemed to be hard to us today, only because we have let technology control of who we are today. Those who walked this journey back in that time were actually smarter than we are today, they built their homes to stand strong through the test of time and what ever Mother Nature had to throw at it, they built their tools to last for many years, instead of breaking forcing you to go buy more tools, Today in this technology world, it’s all about the money, so the Techy companies can get richer with you and I becoming poorer and poorer.
Power and control is where this journey of life has moved into, with we the people the reason for this power and control. All the corporate companies are not the problem, simply because it takes a team of director’s to rule the company, for the CEO to run the day to day portion of the company, but the bottom line is, the company is a fictitious thing, that is run by people that make the decisions to run the company. Back within the time of yesteryear and the time that you worked hard even before you had your morning breakfast, just may seem too hard for those of today, only because they have let the technology control them, life back then was hard yes, but it was more of a simpler time, with less red tape and hoops to jump through.
The era of yesteryear is gone and is now replaced by the technology era, which makes for us the people to be able to accept and adapt, so we can move forward in a simple life, like those of yesteryear did. To be able to accept and adapt properly you first need to be better and understand what is around you, so your decisions are much more informed, instead of guessing, then making your decision become cloudy with no meaning. We have become so consumed within the corporate world, we have totally forgotten of what the simple life is all about. We all want to be better and advance higher as we move forward in our lives, but if we do not truly understand of what was, then how can we make the what is to become, better for us all moving forward? We the people all have our own brains and mind, to keep them well oiled and working properly, we must forever keep learning and not let the technology do this for us, I get that we want the latest and greatest piece of technology, but at what cost to us and the journey we walk, do we really want the latest and greatest in our hands? With the way technology is going, then pretty soon we the people will be the Dinosaurs of the world and the technology will take over, leaving us all as just the tumbleweeds of the desert, to blow in the wind along the floor of the desert, within this journey through life.
” Technology is good when you adapt and accept, to better understand moving forward”
” From generation to generation we are suppose to be better, not step back without moving forward”
” We all want the power and control, but at what cost will we go to get it?”
” The era of yesteryear is gone, making it more important to move forward properly, to be better and stronger”
” What is offended? Someone who is hurt, annoyed and disgusted. Your feelings become hurt by something, so you then become offended by anything that reminds you of that”.
” Like the movement of the #meto, this movements had great intentions at the beginning, but when someone in the movement is offended by anything having to do with sex, but then goes to a rap concert, that sings about Gang Rape? Then what really offends you”?
Seriously…………. We of this Society are so screwed up and become so easily offended by anything, time for us all to simply grow up, fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward better and stronger along this journey of life. Just because something or someone has come across your path and disrupted your journey, doesn’t mean you should disrupt the journey of everybody else? We all have feelings, we all react differently to the same things, but we should never let these reactions, have an affect on all those around us.
We all have been hurt by something or someone throughout this journey of life, there is no one exempt from this. The problem then lies with each of us and what we do with this hurt? What is the proper way to end our pain? Do we bury it like nothing happened? Or do we take corrective action to be better and stronger moving forward? I think the latter is better, so we can fix what is needed to continue moving forward throughout the journey. True that if only we fix our own issues, than just maybe? Whatever that has come to you and reminded you of a past traumatic event, now that same event won’t effect others around you, as you now become offended of everything, instead of fixing one thing, which is a lot easier to fix one thing, than to multi task at many things all at once.
Now I don’t know about you, but almost all the time when all this stuff we are offended of comes to light is, right around one time of year and that is the Christmas season. This is suppose to be the most magical, the most loved, but yet we are so troubled during this time of year? You think it is time we all take stock in our lives, do sort of an inventory of ourselves, to not just clean out the old, but fix and repair ourselves, so we can move forward better, move forward without anymore hidden hurt, bringing us much pain. It is pretty sad that something from one generation, which was all good, now suddenly offends the new generation, which now has us all changing what was, to what is, so we can not offend who is around us.
Love…………………Love is the answer to all the questions, especially the questions of us being offended by whatever crosses our paths through this journey of life. When we love each other instead of hating on one another, then there is no talk of being offended by anything that may cross our paths, when we become hurt and feel real pain of anything, then through the love we take a step back, fix what we need to fix, so we then do not suppress anything deep within, which will most definitely rear it’s ugly head once again later on at some point of this journey. We all need to be more sincere of this word love, this is a special word with a special feeling deep within us all, it is not a word to be thrown around loosely, like it is a word without meaning. We throw this word around so much and at everything we see, that this word has totally lost the true meaning it once had.
You think these people that are talked about in this picture, are worried about being offended? Exactly right, these people were too busy working hard, to build themselves as well as their community, so they all can move forward better and stronger, throughout this journey called life. When you become to focused on offending someone, you are now stopped, you are no longer moving forward and life is passing you by. A big part of this offended era is, Social Media. Now there are many and I do mean many Social media platforms out there, each one will have you believe that they are the best one? But what they won’t tell you is, they are all the best ones for not only creating much drama in our lives, they are also responsible for making us offended by everything, other than the platform for who they are. Everything was so much simpler before the time of this Technology explosion, which brought us all the Social media platforms, We all worked hard walking our path, so this journey could be more of peace and happiness, for ourselves as well as those around us. When things went wrong back then, we took the time and responsibility to see where we went wrong, fixed what needed to be fixed, to move forward better, in today’s Society and within our social platforms, we have become so lazy, that it is easier to suppress, than to work at anything that is well worth the work.
” We need never suppress our true feelings, as they will always come back later and disrupt us even more the second time”
” Love is always the answer as hate will only compound any situation of this journey through life”
” Social media like everything else started out with the best of intentions, but we have turned these intentions into a negative and against everything good it once was”
” Jesus answered, ” My kingdom does not belong to this world, if my kingdom did belong to this world, my Attendants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews, but as it is, my kingdom is not here.”
*** Jn 18:36 ***
The Kingdom of God is truly the highest and most rewarding for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus died on the cross for each of us, was buried and ” Rose” again for all, so we can renew our faith in him and his father, he rose to the one true kingdom of his father, where there is nothing but peace and happiness for all. Now as we all walk through this journey of life, we think from our arrogance that, this is the kingdom of God and why would he let all this hatred and ugliness within his kingdom? Simply because this is not the true kingdom, it is only a journey, with many twists and turns, that gets us ready for the day of the judgment, that then brings us to the true kingdom of God, so we than can have all the peace and happiness, that is within our hearts, souls and dreams.
This journey through life we all walk here on Earth is not perfect, it will bring us much pain, hurt, sadness, as well as happiness, not too mention it will try to control of who we truly are, but as we walk through this journey, it will test us, it will see just how strong or weak we are and as we walk this journey, it is our actions that will help us in achieving the judgment to enter within the one true Kingdom……….. The Kingdom of God, the father of our savior Jesus Christ.
For those that have ventured out within Mother nature and really seen the true beauty, like what is within this picture, you will truly see that, there is so much more to this journey through life, than just what we see on our daily nine to fives? We were created to explore, we were not created just to sit still and criticize each other. It is we the people that are totally responsible for all the hatred and ugliness around us today and unless we get out of the denial, that has a grip so tightly on us today, we will never escape the ugliness and hatred, which will leave us on a journey of negativity, instead of a journey of love, peace and happiness, it is our actions that determine our fate along this journey and if we do nothing, then the hate and ugliness will forever surround us, with no light at the end of the journey, which is the true light of the path of righteousness, that leads us out of the temptation of this journey and into the true kingdom of God, as we all have eternal life within peace and happiness.
With our actions it will help us keep the faith in Jesus Christ, which then will help us keep the faith of ourselves, so we than can always have hope, to be better and stronger, as we achieve all that we want to achieve, without having any ugliness or hatred slow us down along our path of this journey. I get the fact we all want to reach a high level of achievement, but at what cost do we want that achievement? not everybody can be at the top of this journey, but yet we ourselves and our arrogance, will have us think we are better than those around us and that should have us above all else? We are not better than each other, we are only unique to each other and unless we escape the grips of the denial, we will never end all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now.
The true Kingdom of God is a special place, that surrounds you with real love, peace and happiness. Some of us today may think that our chances of entering into this Kingdom upon judgment day, will never happen? On the contrary, Jesus always forgives and even when we think there is no hope for us? Jesus will forgive us and when we except Jesus within our hearts and forgive ourselves of all our wrongs, that is when the power of God and his son Jesus are the strongest, as they truly forgive us, so we than can right the ship and walk this journey better and stronger moving forward.
The spot in this picture is truly peaceful and will totally relax you as you sit and enjoy the peace, with all the daily stress simply melting away and the drooping of your shoulders from the weight of the stress, making your posture much better as your shoulders go back to where they originally were. Love, peace and happiness are the three keys to a successful journey, leading into the true kingdom of God and with all three of these keys, plus the complete faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, now your on the true path of righteousness, which totally at judgment day, helps us enter into the true Kingdom of God.
” Judgment day is that day we all reach along this journey, when the journey comes to an end”
” The kingdom of all kingdoms, is the one we meet Jesus at the gates upon judgment day at the end of the journey”
” Love, peace and happiness are the keys for true faith in Jesus and ourselves, so we all can have the hope in reaching the path of righteousness”
” There are plenty of spots within peace like in this picture, we just have to get out and explore to find the true peace and serenity”
” The true beauty of the morning sky, as we look deeply into the Abyss of the horizon”
What is really of what an Agenda is? An Agenda is something we all have, kind of like a fanny hole, but the real problem of these Agendas lately is, we have taken it to another level of…………. Stupidity. What truly is of an Agenda is quite simply, it is a belief that we all have moving forward along our paths of this journey through life.
There are individual Agendas that each of us hold dear, then there are group agendas by various groups around us, then there are agendas of drama that are forced upon us, that do nothing but bring chaos and divide to us all. Not all Agendas are bad and there are a lot of positive Agendas out there, it is just that the negative Agendas have over shadowed the positive ones, to the point that they have consumed us all.
Within the Political world of today you have many negative Agendas out there and most of them are being driven by the group called the Democratic party. This party is so far in denial that their candidate didn’t get elected to the office of the President of the United States, they all have lost the sight of true reality. Their Agenda being, to do whatever they can to bring down the current President, no matter of how it looks, they have become so consumed with this Agenda, that can not do the job of what they were voted in to do, which also means that, there time is done and there needs to be a good viable candidate put forth into their office.
Then there is the Agenda of all the Media, whether print, on-line, T.V. or whatever type of publication brings us the news? Their Agenda is drama as drama sells better than actual truth, so they can line their pockets with our hard earned money, so they become richer and we become poorer. Now this kind of Agenda………. Yes it is a belief, but it is a made up belief, that then gets brought to us so much daily, we then have no choice but to buy into it, just to try to escape from the crap that is being brought to us. Not all media is full of this negative Agenda, that go out of their way to brain wash us all with their drama crap and within today’s internet world, you can find the good media that brings us the true facts, the choice is yours to make, get caught up within the crap, or get caught up with true reality? Life is full of choices and we make many choices daily, we don’t have to be defined by our choices, or have others look at us as outcasts, because we do not choose the same as they may.
Personal Agendas we all have them, not all are bad and yes there are a lot of positive ones, but the problem with them are, some in their own warped state of mind, think that their agenda means more than another’s, so they move forward with shoving their personal agenda onto the rest of us, whether we want it or not? This totally proves of how the word ” RESPECT”, is no where to be seen from any of us anymore. With respect, not only will we respect each other, but we will also respect each other’s beliefs or agendas, so just maybe we all can see more clearly, as we look out into the Abyss of the horizon. There may seem to be a lot to this journey of life, but when we have ” Common Sense”, we will find that this journey really is not too bad and when we have common sense and respect, then we all can walk this journey correctly, while we live in peace and happiness always.
” To look deeply into the Abyss wasn’t just a quote from a movie, it is what we do walking this journey through life”
” With the many agendas out there, we also have many choices to those agendas”
” When a Politician becomes too focused on a warped agenda, time to change out the Politician”
” With respect and common sense of each other, then most of the drama full agendas will disappear, as the media will brainwash us no more”
We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all have our quirks, which makes us very unique to each other. While we walk these paths, there will be these life events that come to us, some are overwhelming, as some are minuscule and small. These events can and will rob us of our reality, with us becoming someone for who we are not. Sometimes these events come to us by our own actions and sometimes by the actions of another, no matter of how they come, they need to be dealt with the proper way, so we then can be truly of who we are and move forward better and stronger, throughout this journey of life.
We get so comfortable in our everyday lives, we then get consumed within our little ruts, not just because it is convenient for us, but because we then feel safe in our little worlds, as we try to keep further hurt and pain from reaching us anymore. Yes we do have pain, hurt and sorrow that will come to us, but we will stay within our comfortable ruts, in order to minimize the pain that comes to us. Now when the pain and hurt becomes great, we then try to bury it deep within, simply because we try not to cry or show emotion. This society is warped because, we think that when we show emotion or cry, we are looked at as weak, which then has others preying on us, just so they can look powerful and almighty? So we then further stay within our comfort zones, so the pain and hurt can stay manageable by our actions, instead of it controlling of who we truly are.
Habits are formed by us and us only, Habits just don’t come to us, they are something we do with our actions, whether good or bad. When we become consumed within the Habit, is when the creature from within the Habit is unleashed, it then controls us, even if we don’t want to admit to the controlling. With a good Habit we then feel good of ourselves, as with a bad Habit, we then feel less than and let Denial enter within us, which then brings a whole new dimension into the equation, which has us not even letting ourselves escape the clutches of the Habit. With any bad Habit, there then comes the craftiness of creating the perfect lie, is there really a perfect lie? Any lie whether a small white lie, or a huge life changing lie, it is never right and never needs to be looked at, or mentioned in the same sentence with the word perfect. Denial is full of lies, it becomes a series of lies, with one right after the other and the lies never end. Then when we become consumed with the lie, we then believe in the lie as if we are doing nothing wrong.
The only Creature is the one that lives within ourselves, a Habit is something we do with our actions. Any Habit good or bad can be broken, just that we have to have enough self discipline within, so we can replace a Habit, with a better one moving forward, so in the long run we ourselves can be better and stronger moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” All Habits whether good or bad can be broken, just that we let ourselves get too deep within denial and lose sight of true reality”
” Comfortable ruts are good if we can keep moving forward to be better, it’s when we become stagnant that we then need to change the rut”
” The only Creature’s are the ones within ourselves, as we let self doubt and denial control of who we are”
” Get out and enjoy Nature, to not just see the beauty, but to clear the cobwebs from the clouds of your judgments”
The Heart beat beat of true America, this is how America started, before all the big cities were built up. Everybody knew their neighbors and all those around them, unlike today where you walk down the street where you live and not know a soul who is nearest to you. America back in the day was a special place, where everybody helped each other without stepping on the others shine, Some may tend to think that, all Immigrants are welcome here even without the proper status? Now very true that America’s foundation was built by Immigrants, but Immigration done the correct way, which makes it very fair for all. You want to come to America and have a better life than where ever you are from, then go through the proper channels and work hard to not just improve your lifestyle, but the lifestyle of all Americans, who live in this great country of opportunity.
This is Wells River in the state of Vermont, far enough away from any big city, but yet it survives just as good as any city. The towns people pull together as one, to keep the town going strong, unlike those within any city, where they can’t even give one another the time of day. What is sad of today is, some can not survive within small town America, as they are too lazy to work hard in so the town can do as the town does best and that is to survive, within this dog eat dog world of today.
Now very true that the small town is a whole lot quieter, than any city of today, but don’t let the quietness fool you, the small town is just as busy, with all the hard daily work, by all within the small town. The beauty of the small town is a close second to the beauty of Mother Nature, with the both of them being greatly unique in their own way.
Small town America so rural, so out of the way from the true action of the cities, that the ones that don’t live within them, forget that they even exist? Once upon a time, within a time that we of this society have no idea of, a time of no automobiles and where horse back riding was a thing of the norm. a time where hard work was the thing, so we all could move forward better and stronger. A time we all looked out for one another against any kind of enemy, definitely a time that even through the hard work, we still not only found time to enjoy all that is around us, we found time to flourish with each other, as we moved forward in happiness, becoming stronger, as we walked our paths through this journey of life.
Just imagine within this picture a time with no automobiles within it, a time that had these hitching posts that you tied the reigns of your horse to, as you went inside the local general store to pick up supplies, or into the local watering hole as we once knew the bar as, plus while inside you chatted with the store owner, as this was considered your night out, unlike those of us today, getting out to the closest disco, for dancing and drinks? Yes back in the day of old school Americana, they enjoyed their time, but they also worked very hard, so they could enjoy their time even more so.
” Small town Americana wasn’t just a place, it was where we all learned Respect and dignity moving forward”
” The roads may be paved now, but back then they were dirt and you learned how too stay clean as you traveled upon them”
” The heart beat of America beats strongly within the small towns within this great country”
” As the big cities grew bringing America into the future, the small towns stayed the same, keeping America with a great and strong foundation”
