True Communication/ knowing the red flags

 

We within this Society and with all the ugliness around us today, we have totally lost the simple task of, looking each other in the eyes and truly communicating, using our mouths as they were supposed to be used. We would rather argue and bicker at one another, than to have an intelligent conversation, then stab each other in the back with our words to others. Maybe within this Political Correct Society, we have taken some major steps backwards, instead of moving forward through this journey of life.

The Whale swims deep throughout the oceans, while they to travel their journeys and as they swim through the water, they communicate to other Whales they pass along their journey and I bet they communicate better then we the people as well. We the people have become so consumed with the invention of technology, that we have totally forgotten of just how to live and walk our paths without it. There is no face to face time anymore as, we sit behind our computers and phones. then do nothing but text and email. Then there are the video games…………. Okay I can see the few benefits they may bring, but I totally see all the negatives as well and the negatives out weigh the benefits.

with these video games it is all about creating the best graphics, so the viewers or the players, can seem to be a part of the game, or as close to reality as they can be. The problem there is, they have become so life like, that the players then think, they can treat their realities they same way, they think it is okay and accepted for them to act as stupid as the Fictitious Characters they play? Then you add to the equation the Mentally Deranged Individuals now playing these games and thinking it is a treatment for them? But instead they go out to the rest of us and act out for real, a part of the game that they have played. This is just the tip of all the ugliness out there and it all starts and ends with we the people of this Society, who walk a path through this journey of life.

I can remember growing up, we had these Hospitals known as Mental Institutions, but because our so called Leaders in our State and Federal Governments and the fact they think they are smarter than all of us, when they want to make cuts this was the first place they went, then without the proper budgets in place to fund these places, they then close leaving the live in Residents, to walk the streets with the rest of us. Now these Residents may not have a Criminal record, but they have something else known as red flags, these red flags waive high above their heads, when their actions are not normal actions. When these Individuals where Residents in the Mental Institutes, it was so they could get the proper Medications needed, as to keep the red flags from waiving as strong as they are now. Now don’t get me wrong, we all so deserve the right to walk freely on our paths of this journey, just that some have developed this chemical imbalance within their brains, that needs constant care and medications, to keep them from becoming a very dangerous person. Now with the closing of the Mental Institutions and all the Residents walking the streets with the rest of us, you really think these Individuals are still taking their medications on their own? You guessed it, they may take from time to time, but not enough to keep in control of their actions from the imbalance, then as the red flags keep waiving stronger and we keep turning the other cheek away from them, then as they reach a boiling point, now we all pay the price, as we see from all the ugliness around us, plus this could of all been addressed, if we only took care of proper managing our own actions or non actions, as we move forward from one Society to another.

Most would want to blame the Guns from these tragic events? But lets really think for a minute……………. If ” Someone” doesn’t pull the trigger of a gun, you think the gun is going to fire? Now if you can’t answer this question correctly, then maybe you should take some medication to keep the red flag from waiving. The problem of all the ugliness is not the guns and has everything to do with we the people of this Society. We need to start calling a spade a spade, we need to be more accountable for our actions and we need to, start being more responsible as we end this Political Correct Society for which we live. Maybe it would be a good idea to reopen some of these Institutions and stop refusing these Individuals treatment and to take it one step further, I think it would be huge if we all stand up to the Insurance companies, instead of them dictating where our money goes and yes we do pay into them, so how do they get to call the shots on our well being? You want ” Real Change”, this is what needs to change, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, within  peace and happiness, instead of within the ugliness around us right now.

 

” Red flags are different then the flag of a nation, they determine the actions we are about to take”

” True communication is we the people interacting face to face and not hiding behind the technology we all have”

” Our mouths are used for real communication, not our fingers texting on our technology”

” Just like an Actor acts a fictitious part in a movie, the figure that we play in these video games is also a fictitious character”

” This ugliness is not so much of the gun, as it is more about we the people and our actions”

The Tale of the Floundering Flip Flops

 

Flip Flops……. Tongs? What ever you want to call them,  the  are a form of open toed shoe we  wear on a hot humid day. Flip Flop is also something we do when we are for something one day, then go against it the next day. Flip Flop on a subject is something we all do, even without realizing we are doing it, although we throughout this Society do it more than we will admit to. Most of the time as we walk our paths of this journey through life, we will flip flop many things, just because we don’t want to be looked as different, than those around us.

Within this Society instead of doing what we feel and know is right, we tend to follow those around us, for fear of being made fun of or looked at as different, because we don’t do as they do. As someone we know close to us is doing something totally different than we are doing, we will then Flip Flop and do as them, regardless of whether we know it is right or wrong. We fear so much of what others think of us we forget truly of who we are, we get lost within the clouds of our judgement and then we become someone we truly are not.

The biggest Culprit of being a Flip Flopper is our Elected Officials, these Individuals will tell us one thing in order to get elected, then when they are in office, they do the opposite of what they said. We as Citizens not only have to be smarter than them, we have to make better judgements and research better of who we are voting for. True these Individuals that are running for an office come from a law background and know every loop hole for which to get through, but we the Citizens have to close these holes, before they can squeeze through them and Rob us of not just our pride and dignity, but take us for all our hard earned money as well.

” When you can walk your path of this journey through life without messing another’s shoe shine, then you can be at true peace with a job well done”

We in this Society have become complacent and lazy, and when we can take short cuts to advance ourselves we will do just that. We have forgotten what the words ” Hard Work” truly means and because of that, we won’t blink an eye to stepping on each other in order to further ourselves. This is a sad reality, but it is the reality we are living right now and it starts with the top, then works it way down. When those in power follow these ways and the ones below see them do it, now you have a Society that is afraid to step out of the box and be who they truly are.

Let the words Flip Flops stay with the form of shoe wear, let’s not as a Society be known as a Society of Flip Floppers, when we all be who we truly are, then we all can walk our paths of this journey through life in peace, while we all become better and stronger moving forward. This journey isn’t about stepping on each other’s shine, as this journey in the eyes of God our Creator, is about all of us sharing our love with each other, helping one another at times of need and when we do this, nothing but good will come to each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Flip Flops are a form of shoe wear, it is not about saying one thing and doing another”

” Being a Flip Flopper is not truly who we are this gets learned from somewhere,  what is within all of us is love and is truly who we are”

” It takes more effort to Flip Flop, than it does to simply show our love from within with ieach other”

 

That was a Whale of a “tale”………….

         This journey of life for so many of us, is such a collector of many Tale’s and a lot of them over the years, get added on to little by little. Just like when a Fisherman catches a fish out at Sea, then when he returns to port the same fish he caught is a bit bigger, then as the story gets told time and time again it becomes even bigger, than the actual fish that was caught.

We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, we experience many things along the way, with these experiences comes many tales that we tell, most being true, some being made up, they usually start out in fact, then over time they go from truth to fiction, with what used to be a small story, to something full of drama, bigger than it once was, so we all can seem to each other bigger than we really are. This has been going on since before I can remember and throughout this drama ridden Society, it goes on further everywhere you turn.

We are all guilty of painting this picture of ourselves towards others, much brighter than the actual colors themselves, when we do this we don’t realize that we are becoming some one we truly are not, then find out that we can’t even live up to our own expectations. As we struggle to live up to our own expectations, we then become lost within the clouds of our judgements and everything in front of us becomes out of focus, when we make mistakes we then don’t own up to them and try to sweep them under the rug, before anybody notices them. While we struggle with our own expectations and others around us are living up to theirs, we then try to bring them down, to keep them from moving forward further than ourselves and left behind. We spread false rumors just to make it seems like others around us are doing it wrong and we ourselves are right in all we do? You see this a lot in sports also, when one team is always winning and the teams can’t beat them, they then spread false rumors, just to make it like they are cheating the system within that sport. If we only walked our paths along this journey of life in peace, without stretching the facts out to be bigger than they are, just maybe we all could be much happier and enjoy this journey everyday we wake up, so we all can be better and stronger moving forward together, instead of being against each other, causing great friction between us.

” We all have struggles in life, it is how we deal with them that keeps us moving forward in life”

” A tall tale starts out small, then over time becomes much bigger than it really is”
