Let’s clear the deadwood and end Bullying now,

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fallen off the deep edge……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Really People!!! We have stooped to an all time low within this Society, When we can’t even have a respectful dinner and a roast, to honor each other and to show our respect of one another, without basically taking jabs or psychologically punching each other in the face, this is when you know there is a major issue within this Society and an issue that is in need of a major fix in a major way.

I refuse to give names of those who think they need to take jabs at others for a laugh, as they don’t even deserve the fame of mentioning them in any kind of publication. Now seriously is this really of who we are? Is this truly of who we want to be? I think not, as this is who we have become within this Society and this needs to totally change, before it is too late and we destroy each other from within.

God did not create us to attack one another for personal gain, his vision was not one of hatred like we see around us today, this is not of who we truly are. This hatred thing is on we the people and we the people can end this hatred thing, if only we get back to who we truly are. Who we truly are is full of love, the same love of God that is within us all, the only thing we need to do is, feel the warmth of this love deep within our hearts and souls. This love deep within us, is God’s love for each of us, he does not discriminate, we are the ones who do that with this ugly word of hate.

Years ago within a different generation and a different Society, you had these Comedians that would come to a dinner and roast others of their Peers, but unlike those of today, they would do it with love and respect for the one being roasted. In today’s Society you now have everything being spun politically, with the two political parties doing anything, in order of achieving power over the other. It is truly sad of who we have become, simply because we are even smarter now than then, but in a lot of ways, we have become even dumber then those of Societies of our past.

When we truly feel the warmth of God’s love deep within our hearts and souls, this hatred thing will disappear from our existence, to never show it’s ugly head again. This hatred thing is on us and it is us that need to end it, the way we end it is with our actions and the way we treat each other, showing more love, empathy and compassion of each other, it is not hard, just that we have become too lazy and only want too take the easy way all the time? Nobody wants to truly work for anything anymore, we need to get back to the mind set that, hard work truly pays off in the end, as through the blood, sweat and the tears, comes true happiness, true love and true peace. So as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all throughout any Society can truly laugh at each other, without coming to jabs of hate and furthering an agenda of hate.

 

” The jabs of hate is nothing but us showing our disrespect of each other”

” We of this society have fallen off the deep end, now it’s time to learn to swim before we all drown in the sea of hatred”

” God’s love is within us all and is of everything of who we truly are”

” A true Comedian don’t throw jabs of hate, they know how to do it respectively, so they get a true laugh and not just a grin of sadness”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Road less traveled

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The road less traveled or maybe the lonely road? Either way it is a road with zero traffic and zero drama within this journey through life. The road in this picture is as rural as rural can get, where the biggest thing to worry about is, watching out for the wild life, that may come to the road to cross to the other side. Where as all the roads in the cities you have to worry more on, watching the other driver, to not slam into you. Driving these lonely roads will have you truly see the true beauty around you, look deeply into what you see, as what you will see, just may be very different from what you are used to seeing.

The one thing we have gotten away from in this Society is, to truly go out and explore what is around you, go out and travel these lonely roads, see everything that is around you and not just, what is on our usual route or path. Okay true these roads do get driven on from time to time, but with all the busy lifestyles and some who may be afraid, to venture away from their comfort zones, these roads become so lonely that the wildlife will walk them, with no fear of being hit very often.

Just like these lonely roads, we to can become lonely or isolated for many reasons throughout our journey, the difference between the roads and us is, we are a living breathing thing the road is not. We have feelings deep within us, the road just lies there waiting for its next traveler. When our feelings get hurt, we hurt real pain, which then has us hiding within ourselves and isolating ourselves from all that is around us. Even as the road gets driven on, with no feelings the road still lays there as if nothing is there. The road less traveled is not really a lonely road, where when we are lonely or isolated with no one or thing around, now we can hurt real pain from our feelings, but when we get hurt more than we like, now we have to worry about something totally different and that is, numbing our feelings deep within us, where now we can become like the road and feel nothing with no pain.

Being lonely and isolated for us, is totally different than that of the road. Way too often we get lost within the loneliness and lose our way, we bury our true feelings deep within, as to not become hurt with real pain, when we do this we then, become someone for who we truly are not, so we can try to look as normal as normal can be. Being lonely and isolated will come with a price, but driving on the road less traveled and exploring, or truly seeing the beauty all around you is priceless, there is a huge difference between the two, which you will never see, unless you look deeply into what you see. We all will think we feel lonely and isolated, but we will never feel anything as our true feelings have been buried so deep that, we have numbed ourselves to all that is around us, which now has us just wandering , instead of walking our paths through this journey of life, to be better and stronger.

 

” Is the road really lonely or is it just lieing there as still as still can be”

” To go out and explore means to truly get out of your comfort zone and see new things”

” Feelings are deep within us all, even at the times when we numb ourselves from these feelings to escape the pain and hurt.

 

 

Peace for the World…….Peace within the World

With another Lenten journey upon us, time for my little friend……… Martin Richards, to once again make an appearance. ” No more hurting people………Peace”, this is a great quote by an eight year old boy, that was taken from our Society way too soon and in a way at the Boston Marathon bombing, that was totally an act of two Sick Demented Cowards.

Really!!! Do we need this amount of hatred that is around us today? We all tend to forget that, hatred is learned and takes great amounts of work to keep it going, while Love is deep within the hearts and souls of us all and really needs no work at all to spread among us all. School shootings, ISIS, the fact that we are way too negative of each other and now more recently, placing bombs in packages, like what is happening in Texas right now. COME ON PEOPLE!!! TIME TO WAKE UP!!! Before we ourselves destroy each other and this planet Earth, becomes nothing but desert land with nothing around.

We all hurt real pain in many ways and at different times within our lives, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes the hurt is brought on by we ourselves and sometimes by others, who bring us this pain, just to hide deeply their pain and hurt. The only way to truly fix ourselves of our pain and hurt is to, address it, keep asking ourselves why over and over, til we actually get a truthful answer, but even more so, we totally need to simply accept our faults, accept responsibility for our actions and truly, accept of who we are, so we than can get back in touch with our true inner feelings of, Empathy and Love.

Empathy and Love are within the hearts and souls of us all, with the pain and hurt that comes to us, we then have the tendency to bury very deeply these two feelings, like they are not even there? Then as we do this, we learn from others around us, of how to hate and be very negative of each other, We are so afraid of what others will think of us, that we then become someone for who we truly are not. God did not creates us to be hateful or attack one another, this is on each of us as people, who walk a path through this journey of life. Responsibility of our actions goes a long way as we walk our paths and when we are responsible, we than can earn each others respect, which will further us in, walking this journey in the peace and happiness, that God envisioned, when he created us all.

It is totally okay for us to cry when we hurt with real pain, just as it is totally okay for us to, reach out when we need a helping hand, this is what helps us fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward and not backwards throughout this journey.  There is a great quote from the movie Forest Gump, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know of what you’ll get”, So is this journey through life like the box of chocolates, as there are many paths to travel through the journey, you never know of what is waiting around each corner, we just have to stay true to ourselves, truly feel the love and empathy within our hearts and souls, so we than can move forward better and stronger, as the peace and happiness surrounds us, with no sign of any hatred. Then we can be in true peace, as God envisioned and Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his path with us, though this journey of life.

 

” Peace on Earth will eliminate and unlearn all the hate we have learned”

” The love along this Lenten journey, is our true love deep within our hearts and souls”

” Hate is learned and love is within each of us, keep saying it to ourselves, so we can truly feel the love within us”

” Pain and hurt will come to each of us at sometime, we just have to learn how to address and fix it to be better and stronger”

 

 

 

 

 

A Society that has lost it’s way along this journey of life………..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

This picture is cool to look at in so many different ways, but what this picture truly shows is when you look deeply into what you see, is the fact that these logs that lay underneath the roots from an old stump, are a look into the past of what yesteryear was like for a whole different Society.

These logs lay on the shore of one of the many ponds within the state of Maine, the pond’s water level is determined by a dam on one end controlled by a power company. Now back in the day of the Lumber Jack, they would chop the tree’s down that were going to a mill to be milled into 2×4’s or planks to be marketed at a lumber yard. So they would use the pond to move large quantities to a certain location, where either the mill was, or a truck was, that a tractor would place onto the truck from the water, in today’s world it is a bit more sophisticated, with big machinery, that clears one lot, then moves on to another lot.

Now the dam on one end of the pond is controlled by a Hydro power company, that will open and close the dam to determine the amount of power they convert, which then will increase or decrease the level of water in the pond. Now when the water is at it’s lowest level, the vegetation around the shore now becomes exposed to great amounts of sun light, which then dries out the the vegetation and tree’s alike. A lot of it dies off and then when the dam is closed, the water rises as then the dead wood gets covered and saturated with water, which then has it floating aimlessly around the pond.

You can clearly see just how smooth this stump and logs are, from the time it spent within the water and became saturated, now that it has become dried out from the sunlight, it has become very smooth like drift wood along a beach. Some of it like this stump and  it’s roots, have a unique shape to it, which will then have each of us that look at it and perceive many things out of it’s shape. Perception is what we as Humans do and at times with our perceptions, we tend to perceive things we really don’t understand and then our perceptions become tainted and misguided. Our perception of things around us can be our greatest asset, but when the perception is mislead or misguided, now it becomes an issue of not truly seeing or looking deeply into what you see. One may look at this stump and see one thing from it’s roots, while another will see something totally different? That is fine and nothing wrong with that, but when someone tries to force us into seeing what they see, now you are getting into a dangerous area of, trying to control and be more powerful with your perception, over the perceptions of everybody around you.

With all the school shootings lately over the last few years, We all get caught up in the ” Gun control” debate………… It is really nothing to do with Gun control as we may perceive? It is really a People issue and how we perceive the issue around us. We tend to take the easy way out of everything, as we have become too lazy to actually work at changing what we need. The gun laws are in place, as well as the background checks, they just have to be enforced and not treated by the ones that sell the guns, as merely a way to put more greed into their pockets, plus anybody that will actually fire upon another Human, has some kind of red flag waiving over their their head, that the rest of us are ignoring and turning away from instead of recognizing. It is a combination between  us not identifying the red flags and not having enough places for these people to go and receive the proper help, before they escalate into taking such abrasive and ugly actions.

We have all had these red flags at different times in our lives, we all deal differently of the flags, others around us would help us and not turn their backs on us when they see the flags? The red flags are the warning signs to our behavior, whether the behavior is good or bad, they still need to be addressed, before the flag wraps us within the confines of our actions. Back through the many years and Societies that have given us the schools, to ready us for the future, there has been what we call a ” bully”, these Individuals just to try to make themselves seem more powerful than those around them, they would inflict fear on their Victim/Victims. While inflicting the fear a Bully most always has a hidden fear within themselves they are hiding. Now we as the people of this Society and where we are disconnected are, who really are to blame for the actions within the schools? Some may say the Guns because it is an easy target, but in reality it boils down to the Parents and the Teacher’s, plus the whole Faculty of the schools, as the children do spend a lot of time there, where the Parents have entrusted these people within the schools, to protect and watch over their children. The Faculty needs to be trained better at not just identifying the red flags, but how to deal with the red flags, then pass the training to the Teacher’s and also the biggest area for whom should be identifying the red flags are, within the walls of the household, where the children are being raised and that goes to the Parents, who not only have given birth to the children, but raise these children to be better and stronger moving forward.

With all the red flags out there in this Society, it is time we raise the white flag to surrender from all our troubles, help ourselves as well as each other, instead of turning our backs and burying deeply within our troubles, which does nothing but fester inside, til one day we explode from all the suppression’s. Yes we the people are what’s wrong within the Society of today and until we the people come together in unity, come together showing more love and empathy for each other, instead of turning our backs or pointing our fingers of blame at each other, then the problem of the red flags will never go away, which will then have us all, never finding the true path of righteousness that Jesus showed us, which then will lead us to true happiness and true peace, with all the ugliness around us disappearing from all our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

 

” We the people are what’s wrong with this society and we the people can fix this society to be better and stronger”

” There are many flags throughout this society. but none as important as the red flag to recognize and fix what needs to be fixed to make the red flags disappear”

” The many perceptions of the many things around us, which is why we need to understand better our perceptions”

” Love and empathy and us the people coming together in unity, is what is needed to help keep the red flags from destroying all that is around us”

” Change comes to each of us daily, time we adapt properly to the change, so we all can move forward in the peace and happiness that we are missing”

 

 

 

 

Flow through time…. as you are

Creek

 

I may look like a little stream at first glance, but I flow along the Earth with great miles. I may look and feel wet to the touch, but really i am dry in no need of a towel. You see all the vegetation around me, true they need my water to survive, as I need them also, to keep flowing along my journey.  What a crooked web I weave along the journey I flow, around many obstacles like rocks and tree’s, during the spring thaw when all the Winter’s snow melts, my banks then become swollen, as I become wider, then as the hotter months come without the rain, now I dry up with my banks becoming slim, like as if I was dieting. Along my journey as curvy with many turns, there is not a day that goes by that it is the same, with the same rocks to be splashed.

Sometimes my journey will have many up hills as well as many down hills, with each up hill I then labor and don’t flow as easily, then with the down hills I than can relax and go with my natural flow. Not all the terrain that I cover will ever repeat itself, which is why my journey, has to be in happiness while I look deeply into what’s in front of me. I so need to enjoy my journey, so then my journey I can enjoy, no matter which direction I then may flow.

As I flow along my journey, there is many different kinds of vegetation that will count on and depend on me for their growth and happiness, as they live and breathe the air around, while sipping from my banks. This is why the shores of my banks need to be free and clear of all the clutter, plus not too mention of all the four legged ones that come to my banks for a drink and a splash.

Mother Nature then controls the quantity of the water within my banks, as I am then left with controlling  of my journey along my path throughout the land of this place, so as I then keep myself happy with all that is around me. When I flow in happiness, then I never become angry with many ripples on the exterior, instead my surface becomes as smooth as glass and like a mirror for all that glance into me. When I become mean then all that is around my banks, gets damaged with my fury, as then there comes much change with new growth of the many plant life around me.

Just as I flow along throughout the banks of my shore, so does all living breathing things as well and when we all move forward, out of respect for one another, now we all can flow happily along our paths, throughout this journey of life.

 

” We all have our struggles, we all have our obstacles, but with respect for one another, then the struggles and obstacles don’t seem as big as we think they are”

” When we stay true to ourselves then we can flow easily throughout the journey”

” Streams, rivers. or an ocean, doesn’t matter of the size, when they flow freely then the flow will always be constant”

” Mother Nature may help with the flow, but ultimately the flow belongs to each of us throughout”

” What a crooked web I then weave, as I flow throughout this journey of life”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The view from the Eagles eyes……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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”
