Camping………….The happy place

Image may contain: sky, tree, mountain, outdoor, nature and water

Camping is the only place that is true happiness, as you are one within the beauty of Mother Nature. The beauty of Mother Nature is so beautiful and so powerful, it will not only bring a smile to your face, it will also help you out of whatever funk you are in and transform you, into the real true person, for which you were meant to be.

The quiet serenity, the peace like in this picture, this is what will have the stress from the everyday grind, simply melt away from your body and soul, the stress is what brings us into a world for which we do not care for. When we are within the stress of the everyday grind, we become this person that, not even we ourselves recognize who we are anymore, but when we are within the beauty of nature and let the peace and serenity over whelm us, we then become the true person that we are and that is always within our hearts and souls, just that within the daily grind and all the ugliness around us, we put up this front and totally forget of who we truly are.

It just amazes me that when we are within our daily grinds, we think nothing of stepping on another’s shine, or attacking one another, just to put up this front that we are more powerful than those around us? We won’t even do a simple task like give each other the time of day, just walk the streets of any big city streets to see how true this is, but yet when we are camping within nature, or hiking to some of the tallest summits, we actually chat to one another, say hello to each other, I get it, but yet I don’t get it? We can be so good to each other, and yet we are so mean to each other as well. When we of this Society chat of the two Political parties and call some hypocrites, why not look deeply into yourself and truly see that, we are all hypocrites, when it comes to the way we treat each other.

To some camping is just a place to be to escape into a bottle and drown themselves in whatever funk they are in, this is not what camping is all about, true camping is to go somewhere and explore, go somewhere with the peace and serenity of nature all around you, then totally feel the stress of the everyday grind, simply melt away, as you then become totally relaxed and see all the true beauty that is all around you. Some may camp with their trailers full of comforts from home and at a park with many others, this is camping yes, but it is a whole lot different than camping within the beauty of nature, as nature will transform you into, the true person for which you truly are. There is nothing wrong with camping with the comforts of home, just that your not really camping, just parking on a set of wheels, as camping within a tent, will have you totally feel the heart beat of the Earth and truly feel nature bring to you the peace and serenity, that is so missed, within the everyday grind that we all walk, on our paths, through this journey of life.


” Camping the one true place that transforms you into the true person of who you truly are”

” The quiet serenity and peace of nature is what camping brings to you, when you become one with nature and let the stress melt from your body and soul”

” We are all hypocrites when it comes to the way we treat each other within this society”

” The true power of nature will totally transform you from what you think you are, to who you truly are, showing all the true beauty around you”










The view from the Eagles eyes……..



I sit up here on my perfect resting spot and look down upon all the ugliness beneath me and totally wonder why would Jesus let this crap keep happening to the creation of his father? Why can’t those people down below simply just get along? There is so much hatred down below, I am glad I am up here away from all their crap, where I can be free to fly the skies and escape from all their hatred and ugliness.

I may be the National bird and symbol of this country, but right now I am totally embarrassed, for the way those people down below are not only treating each other, but show no respect for anything around them. They all lack discipline,  because without it they have zero sense of direction and no clue of where to turn. From what I see each one of them has their own issues for which to deal with, but instead of dealing with what they need, they then deflect the issues onto others and blame everything around them, without actually taking any responsibility for their own actions.

Now at first glance some may think we are free and fly around with no issues, on the contrary, we also raise our young as those down below the difference is, we actually teach them so they can fend for themselves when they reach a certain age. We build our nests that become our home for our young and we go out to gather food, so they can grow and become stronger, being this high up we deal with all weather issues from small storms to large ones and still we survive and move forward. This country from our vantage point is still a great country, just that it needs some tweaking, so all the people down below can come together in unity, instead of attacking one another at every turn.

Some may look up at us the Eagles and think of how beautiful we look and care free as we fly through the sky, but not one actually thinks of our feelings or worse, they probably don’t think we have any feelings?  That is simply because those down below are wound so tight, that they have suppressed their true feelings very deep within themselves. Every living thing has feelings, these feelings are within your hearts and souls and each of us including all you down below, whether you want to accept it or not, actually do have a heart and a soul. Life is a journey for all of us, you down below walk a path, we Eagles up above fly the open skies, the fish swim through the water, no matter of how you travel, the journey is all the same and we all travel through it in our own ways.

As I sit up here and look down on those who walk their paths, I cry real tears for what I see and how they treat each other down below, I feel my true empathy and wish Jesus would waive his hand over all, so everybody could just simply get along and stop attacking one another. If only those down below would get back in touch with their true empathy, just maybe all this hatred and ugliness would disappear?

The movie Forest Gump has one of the best lines, if not the best, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you will get”, This is so true and as you walk your paths, you just never know what is around the corner, til you actually get there and turn the corner. Life is like that and you have to be ready for anything, we all have our issues and need to understand that, understand the issues that come to us, then fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward stronger and better, this is how we the Eagles fly the open skies and look to all that see us, as if we are care free, we are only care free because we work at being this way, which is something those down below do not do, simply because they are wound to tight, from all the hatred and the ugliness around them.


” The view from the Eagles perch is the true birds eye view at all that is around them”

” You never know what is lurking around each turn, til you actually get there and take the turn in front of you”

” The Eagle soars high above as he looks down on all below, with beauty and grace”

” To cry real tears is not a sign of weakness as it only heals you from your sorrows and makes you stronger at all the turns”








Truly a heart filled tribute



” To some tears may be a sign of weakness, but in reality they cleanse us of our pain to move forward better and stronger”

” Tears are a way for each of us to heal from what hurts us and soothe our hearts and souls”

Any kind of an award show we watch on television, should be just that? An award show to acknowledge someone or someones of their hard work of their craft. Last night as I watched the Country music awards, it was a good respectful award show that highlighted the Artists, as they worked hard all year on their craft, for all of us who enjoy country music. Especially the part where Carrie Underwood sang a beautiful tribute, to all that have perished this year and especially of the ones that perished at the country fest in Las Vegas, at the hands of a very sick Individual. This part of the show was a tearful one, as with the words being sung by Carrie were not only beautiful, but they had you with tears in your eyes, so we can heal ourselves and move forward better and stronger. This is what a true award show does, not as Hollywood does with their Politicizing of their words and the shoving of their opinions down our throats.

Hollywood has their own problems in light of some of the stories coming out of there in recent weeks, what they need not do is lecture the rest of us, in how we should walk our paths of this journey, when they themselves can’t even walk their paths of this journey correctly. Hollywood is nothing but fiction, as they act a fictitious part, in their fictitious world, then they try to preach to the rest of us, that their way is correct and the rest of us are wrong. All their award shows is all about glitz and glamour, the latest fashion excetra, What they don’t admit to the rest of us is, not only does that fashion come with a high price tag, it is also loaned to them to give back after the award show, all the glitz and glamour is fake and if it weren’t for us spending our hard earned money, their glitz and glamour wouldn’t even exist.

The CMA awards are all about the blue collar worker and the words of their music are very inspirational, as opposed to the Hollywood awards, where they do nothing but bring their fictitious world to the forefront. Some of these Country Artists are millionaires, but the way they dress, they look as if they are just like the rest of us hard working people, not too take away their hard work from their craft, as they do work hard to entertain the rest of us, but they have never lost sight of their true roots, unlike those in Hollywood, that will in order to keep their plush lifestyles, they will become someone they are not and keep the world of fiction alive around them.

The world of Hollywood is exactly what is wrong with this
Society, as those that buy into that world, become someone they truly are not. They will do and say anything just to try to fit into that world and then become brainwashed, away from the true reality, that the rest of us walk throughout this journey. May we all be inspired by the great music of Country, so we all can be true to who we are, cry some tears once in a while, so we than can heal ourselves of our troubles and move forward better and stronger along our paths, of this journey through life.


” Either Hollywood or country music the choice is yours, but a choice you need to live with as you walk this journey of life”

” Tears of joy, tears of passion, tears of sorrow, there are many tears to shed, so we can heal and be truly of who we are”


To practice what you Preach………..



” Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example, for they Preach but they do not practice”

***Mt 23:3***


” We walk a path through this journey of life, nothing is ever of it seems, much like this stream, where with each turn around it’s rocky shores, there is a new obstacle for the stream to flow over”




We all speak many words throughout our lives, we also may preach to others of how to do things, but what we all get caught up doing a lot of times, we either speak or we write the proper words for others to follow, then we forget just how to follow those words ourselves, or maybe we don’t think we have to follow what we preach? Some may set an example of what they preach, but is this the true way of how Jesus Christ taught and showed us, when he came and walked his journey with us? Jesus followed the word of his father, the same father to each one of us within Heaven, yes we all have a father here on Earth, that loves us unconditionally, that guides us and supports us through all we do and never asks for anything in return, but the love of God our father is within us all, this love is within our hearts and souls, but yet in this Society we carry on, like it doesn’t even exist, we have lost the faith in our father in Heaven, as in this Society of ugliness and hatred proves just that and with no faith in our father in Heaven, it then leaves us with no hope moving forward along our paths of this journey through life.

The words of God our father are within the Gospel, which Jesus taught us of where to look and read, so we can follow these words and do the right thing always, but within this Society we get so caught up within the clouds of our judgments and within, our own minds of which we think we are smarter than our father in Heaven, that we then Preach our own words to ourselves and others, then we don’t even follow what we preach. The biggest example of this is, the ones we vote into office to lead us to prosperity, or so we think? These Individuals tell us what we want to hear, then forget what they preached to us and go within a whole different direction, with all the examples these Individuals set, we all then get caught up within the same crap, then we find ourselves doing as they, which then has us lose all faith in our father in Heaven, with no hope as to our true future moving forward,

There is a lot of information out there today, but the truest of all the information are the words of God our father and with these words, they can stand the test of time, which they will never get old, as well as they will never mislead us, for what ever we may do or encounter as we walk our paths through this journey of life. The key words to these words from God are, Faith, Hope and Trust, as we first have to have the faith in God our father, so we than can have the hope moving forward, as then with the positive vibes we get from God our father, we than can totally trust him in all we do, which will then help us be better and stronger in all we do and walk within this journey in peace and happiness always.


” Practice what you preach, so you than can follow what you preach and others will then trust you, which will give all the hope moving forward”

” True faith is believing with all your heart, so you than can feel the true love of God the father within you”

” We all have two father’s along this journey, they both love us deeply, as one is always within and we can feel his love in our hearts and souls, the other father is always on the exterior and loves us unconditionally then guides us and supports us with his love throughout our journey”


The bridges of the journey


This journey through life has many paths to chose from as we walk through,

With each path there will be bridges to cross along the way,

Sometimes the bridges are already there for us to cross with no effort,

other times we come to what we think is the end,

But we find we may need to build a bridge to go from one side to the other,

Or maybe the bridge is in need of some help and we need to repair before crossing,

Sometimes we need the bridge so we can get over the gaps we come across,

Without the bridge we could become stuck from moving forward as we should,

The bridge will always help us overcome obstacles that we may come across,

Then as we cross the bridge may we never ” burn the bridge” for which we cross,

As you never know if you need to cross it again so we can fix what we need to,

then recross the bridge or take a different path moving forward,

Some may cross a bridge just to get to the other side without thinking of why,

While others look deeply into the crossing of the bridge to understand why we cross,

A bridge just doesn’t get us from point A to point B,

A bridge truly helps us move forward along our paths throughout this journey of life,

So we can be at peace and happiness always while we become better and stronger moving forward.



” Life”s journey has many bridges to cross, so we can keep moving forward as we walk our paths”

” The bridge is a lot more than just to get over a gap, it gives us a way to get over the gap, so we can be better and stronger throughout this journey”

” We take advantage of all the bridges that are in place for us, because we don’t want to take the time to stop and smell the coffee of reality around us”


The Magic of the Trail

Just recently there was an eighty year old man who just through hiked this trail, May God bless him as this is no easy task, just over two thousand one hundred miles, from Maine to Georgia, This trail takes hard work and dedication, not just the actual hiking of the trail, but the pre planning before you even take the first step on the trail.

This trail is on my bucket list……… okay I have no bucket and there is no list, but this trail none the less, has always been a to-do thing for me. This hike would be not only be full of the unknown, but full of much true beauty with every step. Now I have done a lot of this trail in New Hampshire, some in Maine and Massachusetts as well and up here, the shear beauty along the trail, will leave you speechless with each step, I can only imagine what the rest of the trail holds in store, for a journey well worth the walk.

We all have that one thing we long for, that thing that inspires us and helps us keep going to achieve our dreams and aspirations, for me it is this trail, just the thought of walking into the unknown and truly seeing all the true beauty around me. Yes it is a lot of work hiking up and down the mountains, not too mention the Wild life you may encounter? But with all the true beauty you will see along this trail, the work will not seem like work and will be very enjoyable with each step you take.

The unknown may scare some away from doing something totally awesome, what the unknown should do is, totally intrigue and make you have a burning desire to do something different, heck!!! You just may enjoy whatever the unknown is you seek? Never be afraid to take that first step into an unknown, the fear you have to enter into any unknown, is just your adrenaline telling you to be cautious, it is not saying to not enter, cause when we don’t enter into the unknown, then we will never have any known’s to feel comfortable within.


” The darkness of the unknown, never stays dark forever when we see the light”

” Dreams and aspirations are what inspires us to move forward, never lose sight and keep dreaming”

” A bucket list is just a to do list that we all try to achieve the list at some point”

” Hard work and dedication will always pay off, you just have to trust the process”


The Past is the Past… Stop dwelling in the Past


It is okay to look back from time to time, so you can fix what needs to be fixed, then we can move forward better and stronger along our paths of this journey through life. But when you dwell within the time gone by, then you are doing nothing but moving backwards instead of moving forward.

All this talk of reopening the JFK files…………. Come on people that was fifty four years ago, time to let go and move forward. Yes that was a huge tragedy within  this country of America, as our President was gunned down in cold blood, assassinated by someone/someones, there have been many conspiracy theories over the years from this tragedy, but with so much time that has gone by since, you think it really matters?   The ordinary Citizen has moved past that time, but those within all the Medias, are still dwelling in the past, so they can continue the conspiracy theories and even worse, keep their agendas going, so they can further the taking of all our hard earned money, and they can keep filling their pockets with our money.

The JFK times was a whole different time back then compared to now, can we still look back to fix what is needed to move forwarded better……….. Sure we can,  but not dwell within that time and continue all the conspiracy theories. not bring back a time that for some still holds much pain, with fifty four years that have past, the ones that were closest to JFK, have learned to heal from this time, some have passed themselves from that time, so just because those within the media are infatuated with this tragic event, really isn’t a good enough reason, for the rest of us to have to sit through all this unnecessary  drama once again.


” Lets keep moving forward to be better and stronger, lets not dwell in the past, to show weakness as we go backwards along our path of this journey”


True we have a huge epidemic within this Society and it is the epidemic of Opioids. Addiction can encompass many things and drugs of any kind will fall deeply into the word of Addiction. We all have an addiction of something which we crave, something we can not be without. Now for someone that has never done drugs, I can totally see how others can be addicted to drugs, but are you really addicted to the drug? Or are you addicted to the high that the drug gives you? These are two questions that a drug addict can not answer truthfully, as they are in the clouds of the drug, for which has them in the clutches of the drug. When your an addict the clouds within your brain become so dense, that the clarity of real life does not exist. Some go to treatment so they can be released from the clutches of the addiction, but what do they do in the treatment? They take more drugs to get off other drugs? You think that is a good way to to handle trying to heal yourself from one addiction, going to another addiction? Caffeine is a drug and is within the coffee we drink daily, now if you want to quit caffeine, you think maybe quitting coffee cold turkey is the way? Very true as the other drink may be a soda or an energy drink, that also has caffeine in it. Okay in your brain you are quitting coffee and now your addiction to caffeine is gone, Wrong…….. as you just replaced one drink for another that still has the drug caffeine in it. An Addict will never think this way, simply because their brain is in the clouds of the addiction for which they have, the only way to rid yourself of the clouds is, to quit cold turkey to get back the clarity of true reality.

To release yourself from the clutches of any addiction, you first have to admit to yourself of the addiction, then reach out and accept the help you need, so you can start the journey of releasing yourself from the clutches of the addiction. The journey may be long, the journey may come with much pain and hurt, but when you admit to the addiction and accept the process that is in place to help, you can conquer the addiction, but when you replace one addiction with another, then you will never be released from the clutches of addiction and you will never, have the clouds of the addiction within your brain, be clear for the clarity of reality.


” Addiction will control who you truly are if you let it, time to be released from the clutches of addiction”

” Cold turkey is the only way to escape the clutches of addiction, not replacing one addiction for another”

” The past is there to learn from, not to keep digging it up and dwelling within it”


Simply think before taking action…….



” To take action before thinking through the results of that action, will almost always bring negativity and pain to your path of this journey”


There is beauty everywhere we look, just that we don’t take the time to look deeply into what we see. In this Society full of hatred and ugliness, we then let our judgments become clouded, as we hide our love and empathy deep within our souls. When our love and hatred are buried deep within, we then look the other way, when others around us are struggling or feeling real pain of their own. There is someone somewhere always going through some kind of struggle, but yet we tend to poke fun at them, so we can make light of the struggles we face and lighten our pain for which we feel. When we hear on the news of all the ugliness, we never once think of the Victim/Victims that the ugliness created? We have all been a Victim of something throughout this journey, whether it’s a Victim of a Bully, or maybe some kind of abuse, or whatever the case may be? we are all Victims of something and because of this, we have all hidden deeply our true feelings, empathy and love, just so we can move forward along our paths of this journey through life.

Then there are the ones within the main stream Media that uses their platform to voice their opinions, even if their opinion is right or wrong? The platform is there for you to do your job to the best of your ability, not to force your opinion on the rest of us. Just like that sports reporter on ESPN, she basically called our president a ” White Supremacist”? Hello!!! First of all he is our President and deserves all our respect, as being President is a 24/7 job, not to mention……….. A leader that is suppose to lead us moving forward to be better and stronger, no matter if you voted for him or not. The problem with the main stream Media is, they think they are smarter than the rest of, only because they have a platform and we don’t, well that platform is owned by the one who signs your paycheck and if you think of the ramifications of your actions, before you take the action of shoving your opinion down our throats, then maybe you wouldn’t of been suspended for your bad opinion. We all in this Society have taken many actions before we think through the action, only to later back pedal and try to make like the action was the fault of someone else. There is way too much finger pointing going on, with no one taking responsibility for their actions, it is time we all not only take responsibility, but we think through our actions, before we actually take the action.

Unlike in Hollywood where they have a script to follow and play a Fictitious part, this journey of life is real with no script and we learn as we go everyday. Yes we are going to make mistakes, yes we are going to feel real pain at different times in our lives, but in no way should this pain or mistakes, determine the out come of our journey, only if we think through our actions and take responsibility of our actions, then we all can move forward better and stronger. In this Society we get so over whelmed with all the crap, we then lose sight of who we truly are, which has us hide our true selves, replace with a Fake self, then try to keep moving forward as normal as we think normal is? But when we do this, we only compound everything, instead of truly fixing what we need to fix, so we than can keep moving forward better and stronger, on the path we chose, along this journey through life.


” We walk this journey once, why not walk it correctly, so we can rest in peace when the journey comes to an end”

” There is beauty in everything we see, we just have to look deeply into what we see to actually see it”

The main stream media abuses their platform, which has us all back pedaling to try to avoid all the ugliness:

” Hollywood may act a part within their fake reality, the rest of us are living reality, with real consequence for our actions”



The Beautiful colors of Autumn




Change is never more front and center then the cool Autumn days,

The red’s the green’s the yellow’s and the oranges so bright and beautiful,

Old man Winter is right around the corner with his white blanket to cover the Earth,

The changes of the Autumn season right there for us all to see,

All we need to do is look deeply into what we see,

We to go through changes just like the four seasons of the calendar year,

If Nature can change and show it’s true beauty, why can’t we do the same,

All change is good when done in the right way.

Some change may bring some pain and hurt,

But when we stay true to who we are, all change is definitely worth it.




The cool Autumn days may bring a chill to your bones with a shiver,

As you build a comfy fire within the fireplace, the shivers go away with the heat,

The summer heat is okay, but the cool Autumn days delivers a brand new outlook,

As the leaves show off their brightness and beauty, the tree’s are exhaling for the Winter cold,

With the cool days of the Autumn air, it can bring us all closer to heat up our paths,

But with this Society as is, the coolness of Autumn becomes freezing cold,

We all walk a path through this journey of life, time to walk together,

So we all can be warmed with the love and peace that natures shows us,

As it too changes from season to season and shows it’s true beauty for all to see.




With Autumn comes warmer days and cooler nights and makes for true beauty,

The Animal kingdom running around getting their lives in order,

fixing their homes and gathering their food for the long Winter months,

These cold days makes for many changes to all that breathe on Earth,

When change is handled correctly, it makes for a smoother transition,

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, each season has its own beauty,

With each season brings many changes to us all,

just as our paths bring many changes at the cross roads,

With all these changes and some being good or bad,

Some bringing real pain and hurt to us as well,

but when the changes are done correctly and with confidence,

We all can go through this journey of life,

Better and stronger,   as we feel the love within our hearts,

Then share the love with each other, so we all can,

be at peace with much happiness always.



” The Autumn season is full of so much beauty for us all to enjoy”


” Change comes in so many ways, we just have to have faith and except it”


” he heat of the summer leaves us for the cool Autumn air, as we put on a Sweater to enjoy all its beauty”






True Communication among a broken Society



Robin Williams was a genuine man, he would put all that was around him, before himself and through his comedy, he knew just how to make us all laugh. What Robin hid deeply inside himself was, the fact that he was dying a slow death, from the Depression he suffered from. Depression is the silent killer, as it eats you from the inside out and unless you truly communicate of the real pain and hurt, then all your true feelings get buried deeply within your soul, so deep that, you then become of someone for which you truly are not.

There are many things that come to us and harm us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, but the silent killer of Depression will eat you from inside out. Being sexually abused will also have you hide your true self deeply inside, as you then become someone you truly are not. The bottom line between both of these issues is, ” COMMUNICATION”. We never truly communicate issues as these, simply because we fear what others will think? We become shamed of the fact there may be something wrong with us, because we then don’t take the time to truly understand of what is wrong, we then get the why me’s and think I am the only one with this issue? Well with the way the hash tag #meto went viral, we can clearly see that , there is way too many that have been affected by sexual abuse and maybe now, we should truly communicate of this issue, so we all can heal, fix what we need to fix, so we than can move forward in peace and happiness.

There is a lot to this journey through life, there is a lot that will bring real pain and hurt to us as well, but if we don’t truly understand of what is happening and instead, suppress deeply this real pain and hurt, then as we become someone of who we truly are not, this pain and hurt will never go away, we may think it goes away, only because by suppressing deeply this pain and hurt, we then numb ourselves, to the point we feel nothing, not even a little prick from a Rose thorn off the beautiful flower.

Robin Williams wasn’t the only one within this broken Society that felt this real pain and hurt very deep within, there are many……..many others that feel this pain and hurt also, we will never truly know just how many are hurting, simply because, we all fear of not only what others will think of us, but we also through the fear, will never communicate properly what hurts us deeply, instead we will suppress deeply the pain and hurt, hide within ourselves our true selves and becoming someone of who we truly are not. This is the sad reality within this broken Society, but because we are all hiding deeply within ourselves, we will never truly feel this sadness and until we do, we will never communicate properly our issues, so we can finally relieve ourselves of this pain and hurt.

Depression may eat us from the inside out, but something made us get this way? Maybe we were sexually abused at a young age? Maybe something else happened to us when we were young, that was very traumatic to us? Whatever the case is, Depression came to us somehow, so instead of hiding our true selves deep within, hiding our true feelings and emotions deep within, we need to better understand this disease of depression, better understand all that may happen to us, so we than can fix what we need to fix, instead of hiding deep within ourselves. Communicate better with each other, as we show more love and empathy with each other as well. So we then move forward along our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned, when he created us, and  we  then can be better and stronger with each step, along this journey.


” Depression the silent killer, it eats you from the inside out”

” True Communication is the key that will help us all heal from the issues that trouble us”

” When we become depressed something got us that way, Depression just doesn’t happen”

” If one viral hash tag like #meto gets us truly communicating, then social media has finally done some good”
