The true Passion

” As he rode along, the people were spreading their cloaks on the road, the whole multitude of his Disciples began to praise God aloud with joy for all the mighty deeds they had seen”

LK 19:36, 37b

we all walk this journey through life with great expectations, we strive to achieve our dreams, we want it all, then one day we come to a screaching halt, and suddenly we find ourselves blaming everything and everyone, when the soul reason of the why? Is we ourselves have totally let Jesus Christ walk out of our lives as we stop walking within the doors of the house of God, Just as Jesus told Peter he would deny him three times, Peter did just that. Judas betraying Jesus and then taking his own life from his guilt. we as well within this society, have gone by the way of that society, as no one wants to admit their faults for the fear of others thinking they are weak? So as we enter into this Holy week, may we do so, as we truly feel the Passion of Jesus Christ within us all, with his blood flowing through our veins, warming our hearts with his love, as our souls heal from all the hurt, so we now can truly move forward, in the peace of the Lord, while we share his love with one another.

We to just like Jesus will go through our own Passions, yes we will go through some struggles on this journey, but these struggles will only last as long as we want them to last. These struggles will not only strip us from the love of the Lord, but will strip us from the love of ourselves as well, and when that happens, we then become someone for who we are not and not even we ourselves will know ourselves anymore. Within this Holy week, now is the time for us all not just forgive ourselves, but ask Jesus to forgive us from our struggles, forgive us for becoming someone for who we are not, as we then walk through this journey, in the peace and the love of Jesus Christ, and then share that love with each other, without leaving anyone out. Jesus also was tempted by Satan, just like you and I, the difference is, we went by the way of the dark side, and Jesus who always stayed true to his father,and who never lost faith, will show us what the light of salvation is all about.

Palm Sunday, marks the beginning of Holy week, the beginning of those who embark, to come clean, step away from the sins of the world, step out of the darkness, step into the light, the light of salvation, as Jesus takes to the cross, so the rest of us can be saved not just from one another, but be saved from ourselves, as we all walk our paths, through this journey of life. We ourselves are our own worst enemy, with the hardest thing in the world to do is, the total criticism of ones self. Because we struggle with the self critique, we then have no issue with pointing the finger of blame, wherever we please. We the people are what is wrong in this broken society, and when we never acknowledge our faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, then the darkness of Satan will become darker, and this journey of peace and love, within the light of salvation, losing it’s brightness with the fires of Hell getting hotter all around us and burning us all, leaving many scars and hurting us with real pain very deep within.

There are way too many addictions to list, but what is more important is, each addiction is a sin an without asking Jesus Christ for his forgivness of our sins? we then continue in the denial of that sin, like there is nothing wrong. Denial is the strongest force known to Mankind, when we are within it’s grip, we then become easily controlled, by some who want all the power and greed, of everything around. Jesus came here and walked this journey with us, he showed us, just how when we walk correctly and share our love with each other, the only thing we will infect others with, is more of our love, as we walk together in harmony, walk together in the peace and love of Jesus Christ, while we come together in unity, instead of losing sight of everything, while being lost within the darkness, with no light anywhere in sight. An addiction will control everything of us, it will force us to be someone who we are not, then lead us into the darkness, away from any light, as we become deeper and deeper into the dark side of reality, and not just lying to those around us, but lying to ourselves and even worse, lying to Jesus Christ, without even coming to ask for his forgivness. No matter how big the lie, no matter how big the struggle, Jesus Christ will always forgive you, the biggest issue for us all is, the fact that none of us, truly know how to forgive oneself, simply because, we have walked away from the house of God for so long, that we have no clue, of how to just walk our paths correctly anymore, instead we would rather point the finger of blame at one another, because that is the easy way out, which we have become so accustomed to. Then while within the strong hands off denial and the strong hands of the addiction, we then lose the fight that is always within us. Some may escape from the addiction and the denial, but even more get so stuck, that they never escape, nor do they even see a way out of the force that has controlled them for so long.

Jesus Christ is always there when we need, we just have to acknowledge him to truly see him within us, so as we enter into another Holy week, I pray we all see and feel the love of Jesus within us all, so we can share this love with one another, let the love of Jesus warm your hearts and souls, as the cold of Satan leaves us like the winter months, except never to return, so we all can come together in the peace and love that this journey is supposed to be. May the ones who seek all the power, control and greed, truly see the light of Jesus and the salvation, as the darkness of Satan disappears, then as we all wait in Purgatory for three days, to see Jesus rise from the dead for us all, may we all leave behind the arrogance, leave behind the hatred of one another, to rally around Jesus Christ, come together in unity and totally let ourselves rise above what we once were, to be truly of who we are, so now we can walk our paths with confidence, to walk this journey through life in the peace and love of Jesus Christ, while we have the complete faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so there will always be hope for each of us moving forward thoughout and beyond this journey through life.

” Jesus Christ sacrificed himself for the good of all who walk this journey through life, that is what the forty day journey is all about, just that some never sacrifice anything for the forty day journey and expect everything to come to them, without them even acknowledging who Jesus is”

” Jesus Christ did so much for us all, he taught us just how to walk this journey correctly, but we instead repay him with our arrogance and our hatred of one another even further”

The Wild Fire burns out of control

” They say the fires of Hell, but the real fires are right here with us now, with all the corruption, the ugliness and the hatred we have of one another right now”

” We the people need to change our ways for real, before there is nothing left to change for, the time is now for real action, without that so called lip service that gets us nowhere”

My little buddy comes to us all once again, and he will keep coming back, until we all within this society come together in unity, and truly take these words of my little buddy and share them with all that is around each of us, so these words goes viral among us, instead of all this ugliness and hatred we see now. Martin Richards was taken from us, by two very sick and deranged Individuals, who sought out to bring great pain and hurt, to anyone and they didn’t care of who. There is far too much of this going on all around us today, and it is time we all stand together, we all unite as one against all this, so finally we all can walk through this journey, in the peace and love, that Jesus Christ showed us all, when he came and walked his path here with us.

It’s this so called Political Correction world we all live today, that is doing nothing but make us all weak, You do not know what words to use anymore, for fear of offending someone? But yet we have a media that creates all the words, just to push their agendas down our throats and we do nothing against this, instead we further pay for their words, as we keep paying to either read or listen to what they have to say? In essence, we are their sheep and will do anything they say, just to try to move around as freely as we think freely is? The media is 100% responsible for all that is going on today, and with the three words I have been saying now for a couple years of, Power, Control and Greed, these are the words that the media lives by, as they keep shoving their agendas down our throats everyday. Even as this Covid virus was running rampard around the world, the media would say they were following the science just to keep us listening, but those that actually use common sense will see right through them and their science, as something that was created just to keep us in fear of the virus. The masks, the quarentines, were nothing but a tactic to divide us from one another, and if you follow the real science, you will know that the Human body needs each other, to keep the immune system strong, to fight off whatever kind of virus that may try to weaken us. Yes it is true we all will suffer some kind of sickness as we walk our paths through this journey, but with a weakened immune, now you have no defense against whatever comes to make you sick, of which now we all then succumb to what we all try to put off, and that is the journey coming to an end for us all.

I get the fact that we all do not want this journey to end, I get the fact that we all fear the end of the journey, simply because we fear the unknown, I also get the fact that there will be some who come and try to push us into their ways whether right or wrong? But, I do not get why we stop using our common sense that is within us all? The media does not want us using our common sense because now all the power, control and greed they seek from us all, will now be stripped from them as they lose their grip on us all. The media is the biggest issue for us all, they have become way too big for even their own sick agendas, this is why we the people need to come together against all media, too weaken them, instead of them weakening us. Nobody truly knows where to go anymore to get the real true story of what they seek, it is the media that will water down the stories and only tell you what they want you to know, so they can keep you all within the fence like a good little sheep? So unless we break through the fence, we will never be free to explore all that is around us, we will never be free from all the corruption, the ugliness and the hatred, that the media keeps feeding us within the fence.

Let’s not forget the corruption within the walls of Washington DC, as these Individuals are at fault right now for what is happening within this world. True there are some within these walls that are on our side, but the party of power right now, are silencing them from coming out to speak against them? Those within the corrupt walls are in bed together with those in the media, so they can keep feeding us their watered down stories within the sheep fence that holds us within. The time is now for each one of us to rise up against all this crap, rise up against all the stupidity before us, break free from the sheep fence that holds us in, before there is nothing left to break free for? Now I get that some have no true leadership skills, or do not know how to lead, as a true leader does not look for any fanfare, and will rise up to the front, as the rest of us will take notice and follow them, instead of being a sheep, to further all this craziness, ugliness and hatred, that is in front of us right now.

The media will bring us stories like the wildfires in California, then have us fear all flames of fire, but they won’t bring us real stories of wildfires within their ranks, that do nothing but bring us deeper into the sheep’s pen, the media will create words to further their agendas and shove them down our throats, but when we create words from the feeling of love within us, they then take offense to this and will try to silence us from creating any words at all? The Hypocrisy from them is everywhere and we need to see through it, we need to not only see through it, but we also need to rise up againsty it, showing them that they can not control us anymore, then the power and the greed will follow, as now, we the people will be free from the sheep’s fence that they keep us all within. Now I get the fact that some do not have the means for this and they depend on this leadership for their free stuff, but at some point, you need to dig deep within and ask yourself a very serious question? At what point can I take the training wheels off, and walk my path my way, through this journey of life?

All the ugliness, the hatred and the corruption, have the finger prints of the media and the so called leadership within the walls of Washington DC, all over it, the time is now, for we the people to clean up all these finger prints, so we can walk our paths freely, walk through this journey in peace, love and happiness, away from all this ugliness and hatred, that is brought to us by all the media and those within the walls of Washington DC. Yes this may seem like a tall task? But if we all stand up together, come together in unity, then there is nothing that is tall enough that we can not do, so we all can be totally free away from all that wants nothing, but to bring us further pain and hurt, to keep us within the fence of the sheep’s pen, so they can keep all the Power, Control and the greed all to themselves, as this keeps the rest of us scrounging for even a blade of grass to eat and leaves us still with an empty stomache, that stays dependant on the so called leadership, and keeps us in line to listen to the so called created words of the media, that does nothing, but to keep us in the sheep’s pen and keeps us wearing the sheep’s clothes, as uncomfortable as they are.

” Martin Richards was just eight years old when he was taken from us, but in a lot of ways he was much more mature and smarter then those who still walk through this journey of life”

” May we all rise up against all this Power, Control and greed struggle of today, before there is nothing left to rise up for”

With this struggle of power, control and greed of the media and the so called leaders, lets not forget also, big corporate and big pharma, as we the people have become little pawns on the chess board of life”

This Journey will throw many paths at us to walk

” But it not be so among you, rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant, whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all, for the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many”

Mk 10:43-45

This journey through life will give us many paths and throw many curve balls at us, but in the end, it is how we made the right choices on the paths we take, so we can make the right adjustments, to hit all the curve balls out of the park of life, so we can be at peace, with true happiness moving forward. The journey may seem long to some, others may not get the chance to live this journey, within true peace and happiness? The choice is ours to make, as Jesus Christ will always be there to guide us, and all we need to do is, not only have complete faith in ourselves, but have complete faith in Jesus as well, which will always give us the hope, moving forward throughout this journey of life.

There are many factors throughout this journey that we never take the time to truly understand, factors that when they take hold of us, will control every fiber of our being. Factors that we never acknowledge, until it is too late, which then has us spinning out of control, losing faith in ourselves and worse, losing faith in Jesus Christ. These factors will have us not acknowledging that Jesus is within us, as we then bury all our true feelings, so deep within, it is like they do not even exist. Shame and Denial are the two biggest factors we will have to face, as they will turn us into someone for who we truly are not, they will have us do things we normally would not, as when they grab hold of us, their grip is so strong, and we feel so helpless from them, that we then give in to the error of their ways. We become so bombarded with unwanted drama and chaos today, that if we become out of focus along our path, then the power of denial will come and sweep us away, from us being truly of who we are. Just as Jesus resisted the temptation of Satan, we to need to resist Satan, as he will come to us as well, in the form of this denial and shame.

This quote I use here today, is a perfect quote for each one of us within this society, as we do what we can to get in front of one another, even if it is just standing in a line to get on a ride at the Amusement park. We are all so engulfed within the drama of this journey, we have forgotten what this journey is truly about. We are so lost within this society today, because some keep feeding us lies, that we have lost sight of where we are going, we have lost sight of true reality and have fallen into the hands of denial, letting it’s power control every fiber within us. Can we escape the power of denial? You bet we can, but we need to acknowledge Jesus Christ within us, so we than can have the faith in ourselves, as well as in Jesus, to move forward better and stronger. The hands of denial will bring us into a world full of ugliness and chaos, not too mention in a world of negativity and self doubt, then as all the drama compounds around us, it will keep us from seeing any light of salvation, and keep us within the darkness of the denial, which is how Satan stays in power over us all.

Denial will come to us in many ways as we walk through this journey, which is why we need to stay focused at every turn along our paths. Any kind of an abuse like, drugs, alchohol, gambling, or sex abuse to name a few, as we become engulfed in the abuse, is when the denial grabs hold of us, which then the shame comes in, forcing us to become someone we are not, just so we can take the easy way out and not work hard at fixing what we need to fix, so we can move forward better and stronger. Through the denial we become so blinded, that we then put up these walls around us, to try to escape all the pain and hurt, but what we can not see is, by putting up these walls, we then are separating ourselves from reality, and replacing it with this fake reality, that only compounds our issues, instead of fixing our issues for the better. This quote should not only be read by us all, it should be copied and pasted to the walls of our memories, so when we do feel like life is spinning by and we have lost control, we than can reread this quote as many times as we can, so we can fix what we need before its too late, and the walls of self doubt, have turned us into someone we truly are not.

When your moving too fast through the highway of life, this is when you can not see clearly of what is around you, this is when you become out of focus of everything around you, then you add in all the other factors? Now you have become lost along your path of this journey. Can you get back in focus along your path? Yes, as you slow down, look deeply into what is around you, so you then can take the steps to fix what you need to fix, and move forward better and stronger. Denial can and will control everything about you, but when you stay true to who you are, stay true to Jesus Christ and his faith in you, as well as the faith in yourself, there will always be the hope and the light of salvatioin right there in front of you. True this journey will take some work as we walk our paths, but when we stay on top of it and stay focused, it won’t even feel as work, as it will become natural to us all, which is what Jesus taught us when he came and walked his journey with us. When we take the easy way because of our laziness, now we become ripe, for denial and shame, to wrap their big ugly hands around us all and take complete control of us as well, while we are left to become someone for who we are not.

We of this society think we deserve to be served, we think all those around us should be our slaves? We think we are King of the Universe and will never listen to anybody around us, even if they are correct? We think we are the ones correct and all others are wrong? I have a news flash for you, there is nobody in this society that is perfect and yes we all at one time or another have been wrong, so get off your high horse and get back to reality, before reality comes and bites you in the back side of your anatomy, just like Karma will get you everytime. The son of man came to us to serve us and he gave his life for us all, but the saddest part of this society is, there are way too many that have lost sight of that fact and think that they are even mightier than Jesus Christ himself? We all within this society are so out of touch with reality, that the power of denial has taken hold, of a high percentage of us, the time is now to escape the clutches of the denial, so we all can heal from the pain and the hurt, so we all can heal ourselves, then help heal each other, as we then escape the darkness of the denial and the shame, to get within the light of the salvation and the peace and happiness, for which Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his path here with us. We all may take our own path through this journey, but the journey is the same, we all start and end the same, with the middle being the big X-Factor, and what keeps us humble, to be, or not to be, of who we truly are.

” The journey to some may seem long and will throw many curves at you, but when you stay true to yourself with the faith in jesus and yourself, then you can stay focused and away from the power of Satan with his denial and shame”

” The darkness may seem tough to overcome, as it becomes hard to see clearly through it, but when you stay focused on the light at the other end of the darkness, you will always see clearly through the dark”

” Jesus came to us as a servant to us all, he never wanted a slave, he also laid down his life for us all to heal moving forward, so we all can see clearly through the darkness, to avoid the temptations of Satan and his evil ways”

Walk with Faith, to see the Hope

” Simon Peter answered him, Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of Eternal Life”

Jn 6:68

With these words within the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, some may not truly understand, so they will turn away and give up on following Jesus Christ. This quote from the Gospel, couldn’t be truer of the way we are within this society. We all in one way or another, have walked away from something, we give up on working through something because it is the easy way out. Take marriages for instance, gone are the days of 40+ years together, only because, nobody wants to work together to get thru the tough times, so we think the grass will be greener with another at our side? In some cases, the marriage gets off on the wrong foot, as some will become someone they are not just to land what they say is the ” big catch”? If your basing a marriage on this philosophy, then you will be doomed from the very beginning. When you are not true to who you are at the beginning, then how do you expect for anyone to truly know the real you? Life is not about portraying some fake portion, or maybe someone that you yourself does not even know, because when you do this, then you are dividing yourself, from all others around you.

Then as we walk our paths of this journey, there will be many life events that will come to us, yes these events will control us if we let them. Some of these events will be brought on by ourselves and our actions, as other events will come from those around us. No matter how the event may come, when the going gets rough, we walk away to try to escape it, instead of facing it head on and working through our troubles, which will actually make us better and stronger moving forward. Jesus talks about his body and blood to his followers, he then passes around a bread loaf for each to rip off a piece, for his last supper, then passes around the red wine as his blood, for all to drink. When we eat this bread and drink this wine, we are acknowleding Jesus within our hearts and souls, as he then gives us eternal life within the world of his peace. It is when we do not keep to this faith, that any hope for our future, diminishes from our paths. Right now within this society, too many have lost this faith, as we see all the chaos and ugliness around us. Many have walked away from Jesus Christ, as they think they can do better as they walk this journey through life? Some may go to the house of the Lord on Sunday’s, then as they leave after service, will forget what was said and return to their own ways? But will say they believe? To truly believe in Jesus Christ, is believing with your mind, body and soul, listening to the words in the Gospel and implementing them within your current life, not forgeting what was said, then trying to move forward with your own version? Jesus was not about taking over the world, or killing others, this is totally on we the people, and with all the ugliness around us, we can clearly see, just how many have walked away and gave up on Jesus, taking the easy way out, instead of staying in the fight and working through the hard times, so we than can be within the peace and love of Jesus Christ.

To some within this society, it is all about me, me, me, they think that Jesus never exsisted and no matter right or wrong, their way is the only way? This is exactly the kind of attitude that is affecting us all as we walk our paths of this journey. With this attitude or Ideaology, we are on a path of division and destruction, unless we change our ways and attitudes, then one day there will be nothing left for further societies to come. We are our own worst enemy, we will walk away from anything that gives us troubles and find the easy way, as we have become too lazy, to work for anything that is worth it for our future. Yes, there are some that will try to push their ways on to us, they will Bully us into taking our control away from us, so they can only seem as powerful as they are? Those who are being Bullied, then walk away, instead of standing up to the Bully, because at the time it seems like the easy way out, but in reality, we are furthering the agenda of the Bully. We all have been bullied at some point along our paths, it is how we deal with these times and not walk away, that determines of how we move forward, better and stronger throughout this journey we walk.

Walking away from anything at the time, may seem like the best thing? But in reality, we are hurting ourselves and those around us. We have walked away from too many of our troubles in the past, only if we have stayed and fought harder to overcome the troubles, then maybe our futures wouldn’t be so bleak? With all the division and the destruction around us today, goes to show just how many have walked away, to take what they thought was the easy way out? Jesus walked through this journey, not to show us this division and destruction, this is on each of us within this society, Jesus walked this journey, to show us love, compassion for each other, how to get through the troubling times, to get through the storms, so we can get to the other side, the side of the light of the path of righteousness, as he brings us into his peace and joy, of the eternal world. This journey of life does not revolve around any certain one of us, it revolves around us all, and when we truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, when we truly have the faith in Jesus Christ, we then will see the hope right in front of us, as we keep moving forward along our paths, we also will be more able to walk through any storm and get to the other side, the side of the light along the path of righteousness, that is the path Jesus showed us to get to, for the eternal life, of the world of peace and happiness always.

When those troubling times come to you, when the darkness takes away all the light, this is when we need to be at our strongest, this is when we need to stand up and fight the good fight, keep the true faith in Jesus Christ as he will help guide us, as we dig down deep within, to not just walk through the storm, but walk through with faith, that the true hope will always be there on the other side, so we than can be within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. This journey isn’t about walking away and taking the easy route, but when we fight the good fight and overcome our troubles, then this journey will become easy for us all, as now through the faith in Jesus and ourselves, the peace and joy is right in front of us along with the hope, which then dismisses all the division and the ugliness that may be around us. Satan is the one who will place the bumps along our paths, to trip us up away from Jesus Christ, he will bring to us many temptations, that will bring nothing but darkness to us all. This is why we need to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so we can have the true hope before us, and not the false hope of, all the divisiion and ugliness that Satan will give us, when we give in to his temptations. The decision is ours to make, we can either feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, or we can let our hearts become cold, within the world of Satan, full of division and destruction. When we truly follow Jesus as he guides us onto the path of righteousness, we will be within the eternal life of his peace and joy, but when we chose Satan, we then will be within all the division and ugliness, which then brings much pain and hurt to us all. With the true faith in Jesus and ourselves, we then can walk through the dark times, to get into the light of salvation and eternity, which then will bring to us, the peace and joy of Jesus Christ.

So the easy way out and to just walk away from your troubles, may seem like the best way? The grass is never greenest on the other side, as we need to work through our troubles, so we than can truly see the real green grass on the other side, as we become better and stronger moving forward. This is what Jesus taught us as he walked this journey with us, this is how we evolve with strength and how we move forward instead of backwards further into the darkness. We can walk away from everything that may be in front of us, but if we do not fight the good fight, we will never learn the true meaning of what Jesus taught us during his time with us. So as the Priest talks of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, he really means that, don’t just eat the bread and use the wine to chase it down, let the bread melt in your mouth, then let the blood of Christ bring it throughout your body, as you acknowledge Jesus is within you, then you can feel the true warmth of his love within your heart and soul, so with the true faith of Jesus and of yourself, now you can walk through any darkness, to get to the light of the hope in front of you, that will bring you to the eternal life of peace and joy always.

” The easy way is to never walk away and give up, to get through the troubles we must fight the good fight so this journey then becomes easy for us all”

” To walk away from the troubles we may think is easy, but we are just extending all the division and ugliness further along our paths”

” When the troubles come to us, this is Satan trying to tempt us into the darkness, we need to stand strong against him, so the darkness will give way to the light of salvation and the eternal life of Jesus Christ, for true faith and hope into his peace”

The Temptation to be Tempted

” No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able”

Corinthians 10:13

Temptation is a part of this journey, we get tempted every day as we walk our paths, it is when we give in to temptation, especially when we have no clue what exactly is being tempted. Just like anything else along with this journey, there is the good, as well as the bad, and temptation is no different than all else. Sometimes we will get sold into temptation, like a car salesman trying to sell a car, they will suck us into what sounds like a great deal, then, Boom!!! What you have been sucked into buying, becomes part of the other junks within the junkyard for cars. We can get tempted by many things, as well as many others, as they walk their paths of this journey. This goes to show that, when we are troubled and easily intimidated, then yes we can be tempted into things we would not otherwise do, just as Jesus showed us how to resist temptation, we can do it, we just have to stay true to who we are, with complete faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ.

Just as there are bad temptations, there are plenty of good temptations and because they bring no pain or hurt, we then don’t acknowledge them as temptation at all. You step out within mother nature, you’re going four-wheeling, or maybe taking to a journey with the kayak? As you set out on that journey, you find many different trails or roads to take, what a choice right? You now become tempted toward one of the trails, simply because it had less twisting and turning along the drive, but as you follow the temptation, and after a day’s journey, you now find out it was a dead-end, and you are now lost? Temptation is just that, it is tempting you to take any action, but before you take that action, you first need to look deeply into that temptation. Now there are good temptations also, but unless you look deeply, you will never know at first glance. Your four-wheeling down this old dirt road, the road comes to a crossroads with zero signage, how do you know where to go, to either get to where you want or to get to that place of beauty within mother nature for a great camping experience? Well if your off-grid the GPS probably will not work? do you have a compass or a map? When there is nothing then look deep down each road, look within the sky of each direction, then trust your gut, as the gut will seldom let you down.

That gut feeling you have deep within? I am willing to bet that it is Jesus, who is always within us, letting us know of which direction to go, so we can get through whatever the temptation, as we keep moving forward as best we can. The problem is, we do not listen to our guts enough, which then has us go within any temptation whether good or bad. There are many temptations out there and most are disguised very well, well enough to fool even the smartest of us, so when we give in to the wrong temptations, we then fall into the shame of the decision and hide it, from all those around us, because we do not want to look as bad as we feel, for making that bad decision, to begin with.

We all have made some bad decisions in our lives, and we will probably make even more before this journey is over? A decision is the first step in the temptations of life, they are like the gateway into the big world of temptations. This is why, before we open those gates, we first have to look deeply into what is within those gates, so we can avoid any bad decisions that may come to us. The temptations through this journey of life are plentiful, so just as we look at our options of anything else along our paths, we also have to look at our options at the temptations, so we can avoid the bad, and stay with the good ones.

As you can see in this picture, a good decision was made, as the temptation to stay straight was there, but as I took a turn to the left, the beauty opened up and gave a great reward to the lake that lies ahead. Now with that good decision away from the temptation, time to go set camp and enjoy the true beauty of mother nature. Does everybody want that perfect campsite? does it really exist? You may find one and call it perfect, but what if you continued and found one even better down that trail you were on? The perfect campsite really does not exist, it is just our own way of personalizing something and hiding away a decision, from one temptation to another. Hm!!! Do I continue straight down this twisting and turning road, or do I turn right and follow this road toward the lake? Two decisions with two very different temptations pulling us, which way do you go? We get pushed and pulled in many different ways on our paths of this journey, but what we take for granted is, it always starts with being tempted toward a temptation, as we then make a decision into that temptation we chose. Never be tempted into the wrong decision within any temptation, always look deeply into that Abyss, look deeply into the perception of all temptations, then think through your actions, so you can walk your paths with less resistance, throughout this journey of life, as you strive for the peace and love within and gain the trust of all that may be around.

” There are many temptations that will tempt us in many ways, but a good decision will help bring us to the good and away from the bad”

” Look deeply into the abyss of all the tempted temptations, to make a more informed and well thought out decision always”

The Super bowl now has seven rings

” The journey to the top of the mountain, is a strenuous one, much like reaching the pinnacle of your career, within the world of sports”

*** BowlingChef***

Super Bowl Sunday, we all witnessed an Individual setting the bar so high, at the position he play’s, that we may never in our lifetimes, see this done again. I am not saying it will never be duplicated, but this kind of stuff is a once in a lifetime kind of stuff. Tom Brady is the Quarter Back, and he is greatness personified. Tom was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round, at pick number 199? So to say this was predicted is not even in the mention, nobody could of predicted this, not even Tom himself. Tom worked very hard everyday to perfect his craft, not just in the Pro’s, but even as a young child, now it is true that, he might of been a gifted Athlete, seeing he was also drafted in baseball as well, but this gift just doesn’t happen, as the Individual needs to put the work in, to perfect the craft he seeks. We all, if we put in the work, can achieve some success in whatever we want, maybe not quite like Tom, but we also can be successful at whatever we want.

When Tom was here in New England, we all know about his work ethnic, he was first in the building in the morning, and last to leave in the evening, he studied multiple tapes and video, time in the gym, on the practice field, many reps at everything it took, to make him perfect his craft. Tom’s greatness did not happen overnight, it took a lot of years, starting from a very young age. This wasn’t all him, as when he was young, he needed great support from his family, especially from his Mom and Dad, They could of steered him in a different direction, but instead, they guided him to follow his passion, and we all know just how much passion, Tom has for the sport of football.

Passion is deep within us all, but if we do not release it, we will never know our true potential. We all work our current 9 to 5’s, but how many of us have a true passion for what we do? Exactly!!! not many and Tom Brady is one that does. Not having passion for what we do, explains all the bitterness out there, the jealousy of each other, which then is followed by the hate of each other. You seen all the big smiles and then followed by big joy after the game by the Buccaneer’s, this was from them achieving their passion and becoming the winner of the Super Bowl, as the NFL’s best team. Then you saw sorrow, sadness, bitterness, some forgetting about the passion and letting their emotions, take them to a very ugly place, just because they didn’t win the Super Bowl, sports can be very emotional on both sides, whether happy or sad, this is what the competitive nature of each player, will bring to each other.

Being competitive is what gives each player, the drive to bring out the passion of their craft, this is how great players are made, and how they achieve the greatness within their sport. The ones who have no drive, or have no competitive spirit, these are the ones who do not last in the sport they play, guys like Tom Brady, Zedna Chara, Patrice Bergeron to name a few, totally have the drive and competitive spirit, not to mention, the passion of the game they play. You can not teach this passion, it is totally up to the player to let the passion, flow throughout their blood. The hard work, the drive, the enjoyment of what you do, the competition, are all the factors, of what it takes to release the passion throughout your veins, as it turns to the blood and who you become moving forward.

Sometimes the mountain top may seem to high, or maybe too difficult and you just walk away from attempting it, but if you do not attempt it, if you do not find the competition in it, if you can not find the passion to take that first step, now you will never see the true beauty that the summit holds for you, you will never let any passion, flow through your veins, as it turns into the blood that drives you everyday. Tom Brady has become more then just a 7 time Super Bowl Champion, more than just an Individual on a field playing a game, more than a person that works very hard to succeed at his craft, Tom has become an Icon to not just all of us, but an Icon for the many children looking up to him and to try to be like him, and even more, he has become an inspiration to us all, from this point on, as he as well as all of us, move forward, on our paths, throughout this journey of life.

” The journey to the top is never easy, but with hard work and passion, anything will seem easy over time”

” Passion is deep within us all and when we unleash it, the sky is the limit as to what we can achieve”

Advent…The coming of Jesus Christ

Digital Camera

” Why do you let us wander, O Lord, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not?… Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful, all of us have become like unclean people”.

Isaiah 63:17;64:4

We of this society are completely in the darkness of this storm, and this year of 2020 has darkened the clouds greatly. The weeks of Advent leading to the coming of Jesus Christ on Christmas day, is all about the Hope, the love, the Joy, and the peace, all elements that we as a society have lost, and especially during this year of 2020. We have let the hatred and the ugliness consume us so much, that we do not look at the little things anymore, it’s the little things that have become so unimportant to us, because we look for that big homerun, and forget that it is the base hits that win the game. Because we have let the darkness cloud our judgments, we don’t look for those little things anymore, we don’t look at the big picture, or what is right in front of us, instead we reach for the bright and shiny, so we then shy away from putting in any kind of work, that will help us move forward out of the darkness.

With this Advent is not just the coming of Jesus, it is a magical time of year as well, the magic comes when we have true faith, which then gives us the hope moving forward, then when we truly feel the warmth of love within our hearts, then the empathy within us shines brightly, then as our paths shine a bit of light, the joy brightens even further the path, as through joy comes happiness, and when we are happy, now Jesus is happy and finally the light comes, with the darkness slipping away, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Faith, Love, Joy and Happiness plus the complete faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, these are the ingredients that help the magic, which helps us heal, so the dark clouds can be lifted, and replaced with the bright light of the path of righteousness. Sometimes through the darkness, we just can’t see clearly of what is right in front of us, we become lost and become someone who we truly are not, we hide a big piece of who we are, just to keep from being hurt with real pain, but when we let faith work it’s magic, now the hope will brighten us up, to feel the love and be happy, so we then can be finally in peace, leaving all the ugliness behind.

Jesus Christ came to us on Christmas day, he walked this journey here with us and taught us many things, he shared his love for us and sacrificed himself for us as well, Jesus died for every one of us, no matter of who you are, and with the way 2020 has gone, this is how we pay him back? We let the ugliness, the hatred and the corruption consume us so….. We have become so divided of one another, that we can’t even look each other in the eye, we all need to stop dwelling in the past, so we all can move forward in peace, and with this being the first day of Advent, may we all dig deep, find that true faith, that will give us great hope, so we can be filled with love within our hearts, as the empathy fills our souls, then as our hearts become warm once again, let the Joy bring us much happiness, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all can be at peace, as Jesus becomes proud of us once again and the magic of this special time of year, reaches us all, to heal us better and stronger moving forward.

” Hope, Love, Joy and Peace are all part of the Advent season and what brings the magic of Christmas to us all”

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and keeps us warm, but when we don’t acknowledge this love, our hearts become cold”

The Swamp Creatures within to release its great talents

You think by the title I may write of the swamp within Washington DC? Why waste two great pictures within Mother Nature. Even Mother Nature has swamps within it, the difference is, mother nature takes care of them so they can thrive, within Washington DC, the ones within that swamp only takes care of themselves and totally forgets of all those around them. Not that I want many getting out within mother nature to take away all the beauty I come across on my journey’s, but within this screwed up society only proves further that, a high percentage of us, have totally forgotten and taken for granted, all the true beauty within mother nature.

No matter where you go within mother nature, there is so much beauty with every turn, not just all the plant life, or the landscapes, but there are many wild animals that roam within mother nature, these animals call mother nature their home, just like we have homes and want others to respect our homes, we to need to respect their homes, while we are out there within mother nature. The beauty of mother nature is everywhere around us, even as we drive to our jobs, but sadly we take this so for granted, that we do not look at it as being within mother nature, instead, because we are so caught up in all the ugliness, we see no beauty.

With another Veterans day upon us, let us take the time to thank a Veteran, for it is the veterans that keep us free to do as we want within this country, there are some that do show respect to our Veterans, but there are some who totally take them for granted, as not only do they not thank a Veteran, but they can’t see what they do for each and every one of us. A real Veteran will never see a swamp and see it as ugly, he will do what he has to, in order to clean it, so it’s future will be nothing but beauty for all.

“The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more”

Mt: 25;20

We all in this society and as we walk through this journey, have special talents, we all have a purpose as we walk this journey, but unless we find that purpose, we will never unlock the talents that are within us, and without the purpose, we then will never not only show our talents, but we will never bring our talents to the next level, like building more talents upon the talents that are already within us. In order to truly find your purpose and your talents, you need the confidence within you and the confidence in Jesus Christ, so you can move forward along this journey and find that purpose, the problem within this society is a lot of us have lost that confidence and have lost of who we truly are, while we are all lost and within the clouds of our judgments, we will never see any beauty around us, we become full of fear that brings us much pain, as we never see us for who we are, we will never see anything around for what it truly is as well.

This journey through life is like that when we do not take care of ourselves as we should, when we truly take care of ourselves, fix what we need to fix, not only will we ourselves be better moving forward, everything around us will become better as well. This year of 2020 has been a very challenging year in so many different ways, with all the ugliness that has come across all our paths through this journey, proves that we all need to take care of ourselves, so we then move forward with each other, to become better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we take care of ourselves and see the talents within us that Jesus has supplied us with, we will then find that confidence that he sees in us, and bring that confidence out, to let the talents shine brightly as we walk our paths, as now those talents will help us achieve many more talents throughout our lives. The success for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life is endless, with the confidence in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, then all our talents will shine as bright as the sun on it’s best day, which will then have us find many more talents to shine even brighter, so we all can move forward in the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us when he came and walked this journey here with us.

We all have talents within us, these talents will help us find our purpose here within this journey, then as we find this purpose and our talents within, we will then find that there are many more talents for us to unlock within this journey as well, all we need is to have that confidence in ourselves, that confidence in Jesus Christ as well, so as we walk this journey through life, then the true success for each of us will be endless and all this ugliness we see today will disappear, as there will be no room for it to exist anymore. Just as Mother Nature has it’s true beauty for us to see, there is no better beauty than the beauty within each of us, especially when we are confident, release our true talents, and have found our purpose in life, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” A true talent goes a lot deeper then any kind of sporting or singing type of talent”

” The beauty of mother nature is definitely beautiful, but the beauty within us all is so much more precious and special”

Learn History to be better moving forward

Our memories throughout the journey we walk, plus learning the history of others before us that also walked this journey before us, this is how we grow to move forward better and stronger with each step throughout this journey of life. It is pretty cool knowing those who walked before us and what they did, to make their journey better for themselves. When we look into our history and look deeply into the other societies before us, we can learn of what works, versus what does not work, but when we try to erase History or even worse do not teach history within our schools, now you can very easily repeat history and take huge steps backward instead of moving forward.

These Native Tribes back in Ancient times in the area of Mount Kineo did not have any technology like we of today, they had no telephones but yet they communicated far better than we do today. These people didn’t procrastinate and whatever they found they turned it into something useful to make their lives better. They learned how to hunt so they can eat, they learned how to barter as there were no monies back then, they were survivors and learned how to survive and were not lazy at anything they did. Now unlike those of us within this society with all the technology and gadgets we have, we have become lazy and expect things to come to us, instead of actually getting out and working hard, so we then can move forward better and stronger. We in this society have become disconnected from each other even with all the connections we have, we hide behind all our devices and have no clue as to what true social interaction is? We think that FaceBook is our modern-day interaction, I have a news flash people, time to step out of our comfort zone before there is no more comfort to enjoy.

There are so much ugliness and chaos among us today, so much that it has become hard to see any light at the end of this darkness. Those who are creating this chaos and unrest, quite simply have lost sight of what is around them, plus none of them are looking through their actions before they actually take the action. I am willing to bet that most of these individuals who are creating this ugliness have zero clues of what they are doing? They are simply a follower and will never be a trailblazer as they walk the path they are on, through this journey of life.

The unfortunate part through all this ugliness and chaos is, we of this society are becoming Victims from it, not only are we becoming trapped in our homes from a virus, but we are also becoming trapped within our homes, for the fear of becoming a true Victim from the ones creating all the ugliness and chaos. Very true that the ones with boots on the ground delivering all this ugliness are merely a puppet for an even bigger puppeteer, so with that said…….. maybe it is time we find the puppeteer so we all can escape this ugliness and get back to the true beauty within this journey of life, find the one holding the puppet strings so we then can cut these strings, showing that they can not hurt us anymore and we are done being a Victim of their ugliness. In this society, it is all about three things, the power, the greed, and the control, these three things will have you lose all sight of reality, not to mention the fact that you become a victim of denial and with denial, you then become someone for who you truly are not. Very true there is a silent majority that says not all that much but is much smarter because they let there true actions speak even louder than even themselves, so when the time is right, the silent majority will let their true actions speak and all the ugliness and chaos will leave us, bringing back the true peace, the true love and the beauty that is around us, as we then move forward along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Open the history books again cause what you may learn will help you move forward better”

 

” Memories become the history and when we do not glance back to fix the error of our ways, then the future becomes in jeopardy”

 

” Ugliness and chaos are ingredients of evil, as love and faith will bring us good full of peace”

 

 

The flow through this journey of life

” God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life”

Jn 3:16

 

Just as the creek flows down off the mountain, we to flow along our paths on this journey through life. The creek will encounter obstacles to overcome on its journey, so do we encounter obstacles as we walk our paths of this journey. The journeys may differ, but the concept is the same, unlike the creek we the people take so much for granted along our path, as one is the true beauty all around us, there is so much beauty, but as we become so engulfed in the ugliness and the hate, we then become someone for who we truly are not and bury deep within who we truly are, as well as our true feelings and emotions.

This journey through life for all of us will have the same beginning as well as the same ending, but what lies in between determines on the path you choose to walk, some paths will have many bumps and pitfalls that will knock you down, which then will be determined by the way you get up from the many falls, some paths may be well-groomed, which then doesn’t prepare you for the pitfalls, but we still have to work hard along our paths in order to make this journey well walked.

The birds singing their many beautiful songs, the vegetation so alive and vibrant, feeling the true heartbeat of this planet Earth, some of the most beautiful things around us. Each one of us sharing our love and empathy that is within us with each other, this is the most precious thing we have, but yet as we get so engulfed with all the ugliness, we lose this as our hearts go so cold. The beauty of Mother Nature is beyond beautiful, it has the power to heal us from our troubles when the daily grind has us in its clutches, escape within Mother Nature and feel the weight of the grind simply melt from your body. When you become engulfed in your routine, doing the same thing day in and day out, escape within Mother Nature and see new things, the type of things you will never see in your daily routine. We all need to escape the grind that is life from time to time, as this is what heals us and helps us become better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The journey is supposed to flow like the creek down the side of the mountain”

 

” Mother Nature is more beautiful, its power can change us all moving forward throughout this journey of life”

 

” The journey up the mountain can seem like a lot of work, but it is work that soothes us from our daily struggles when we look deeply into all the beauty around us”
