The Hatred runs so deep within this Society

My little buddy with his message for us all, totally needs to come back to remind us all, that we are not about this hatred that is around us, just that we have let it consume us so much, that we have lost total sight of who we truly are.

This Smollett case and the way it is being swept under the rug, is totally setting the wrong example for us all moving forward. It is not about having enough money so you can buy your way out of anything, what you need to do beyond having empathy and compassion is, look deeper into what you see beyond your actions, then maybe you shall see that you are not only hurting yourself, but you are hurting all that are around you, with the actions you take. We all want to make our lives through this journey better with each step, but when our steps are on the top of others steps, now you are invading another ones steps and bringing harm to them, as you move forward like nothing at all.

Hatred right now is controlling us all through this journey, it is controlling us so much, it has us all taking action without thinking through the ramifications of our actions, it has us all being blinded by the clouds of our judgments, which now we are all in the deep darkness of this hate, without seeing any light in front of us along our paths.

With this Smollett case, the facts clearly point out he had an agenda, with this agenda he wanted to further spread the hate of anybody wearing a M. A. G. A. hat, by having these two brothers beat him for wearing a M. A. G. A. hat, to simply try to cram his agenda, right down the throats of each one of us, without having a care for anybody around him. He says he was unhappy with the $60,000+ dollars he was getting per episode, on the show he was on? What about the millions of others that are scraping by on what they make and that’s with most working two and three jobs. Sometimes in life as we walk our paths through this journey, it is not about who you know and expect them to help you out of a jam that you created, you need to get yourself out of the jam you created, so you than can fix what you need to fix, to move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

We all have our struggles, nobody is perfect either, we all go through so much and with others bringing to us things we don’t ask for, makes for much pain and hurt coming to us as well, we then take that pain and bury it deep within ourselves to try to escape the hurt it brings, which we then become someone for who we truly are not. When we become someone we are not, we then get consumed by all the hate that is around us and further the hate, instead of trying to be better than that, by letting the hate pass, without it hurting us and turning us bitter to all that is around us. It doesn’t pay to let the hate consume us, as not only do we bring much pain and hurt to ourselves, we bring much pain and hurt to each other, which does nothing but turn this into a divided society, then keeps us from walking our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

” There is something fishy in the city of Chicago, I think they need to bury the fish to stop the stink, for us all to see the freshness of this journey”

” Nothing good ever comes out of hatred, we need to learn the error of our ways, to move forward better and stronger”

” We the people are our own worst enemy, from us comes the hatred and from us we can bring the peace as well”

” When something is swept under the rug, it is only hidden for a short time, then when it rears its ugly head it can be even worse if we only took care of it sooner”

Abuse of Power is damaging and painful………….

Robert Mueller wearing a suit and tie: In a 2013 file image, former FBI director Robert Mueller attends the ceremonial swearing-in of FBI Director James Comey at the FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
” Knowledge is power and can make you better, but the wrong kind of power will hurt you and those around you” I bet we the the people are so happy that this so called investigation is over, but is it really over? This was the biggest waste of money in the political world to date, this proved nothing, especially the fact of what it was set out to do, which was the taking down of a seated President. President Trump gave up his Billionaire dollar lifestyle, to truly help us all the American people with the America first attitude. President Trump came into office with large pockets full of money, to which all the lobbyists hate, simply because he can not be bought, but yet some others get elected into office within the Senate and the Congress not as rich as Trump, but all of a sudden they are now extremely wealthy, as they have been bought by these lobbyists to vote a certain way. What the so called Media will not report on cause it is not in their agenda is, the simple fact that even through this witch hunt of an investigation, President Trump has accomplished a lot of good for this country and the people. Now very true that our President may say things he shouldn’t and maybe offend some, but this shows of how he does not believe in this political correct world that consumes us today, the one thing that this political correction does is, it makes us all weak as we fear most of not offending anyone, for the pure fact of any harm coming to us. Gone are the days of actually looking someone in the eyes and actually interacting firmly without fear of repercussions, especially when there is this thing called social media we all hide behind today. Knowledge is power yes, but when you use the power to take someone down, or bring harm to another, that is not the kind of power we need. Now if your working within a company and you want to move up within that company, then having knowledge of everything that company does can and will benefit you greatly, but now where there is no more true loyalty anymore, this kind of knowledge is far and few between. There are still some out there that have great knowledge of a subject and are willing to share their knowledge with you, but in this world of ” all about me”, those ones are hard to find today. The sad part of this society today is, we are all guilty of having our agendas very much like the the media types have their agendas as well. Today within the walls of Washington DC and over the last couple years with this so called investigation, the one thing that it did bring out is the fact that, all our elected officials are not only corrupt, but they are also driven to gain all the power over everything they can, just so they can basically try to have full control of everything around them. If you try to get elected and don’t know how to play the power game, then you will get eaten up within the walls of Washington DC, then you become none effective and a warm body sitting in a chair. We all walk a path through this journey of life, but when we move forward with no empathy or compassion for each other, then the journey becomes clouded and we all hurt real pain, with no true feelings to soothe the pain. President Trump has been elected to the highest office on the land fair and square, now we the people need to except that fact, except that he is our seated President, so we all can move forward better and stronger, while President Trump lives up to his promise of, ” making America great again”. It really does not matter what political party you belong to, as this journey through life is traveled by each of us as an individual, that looks to try to walk our paths in peace and harmony, but when we are attacking each other, then the peace and harmony are no where to be found, then we become blinded by the clouds of our judgments, of which then we all become none effective in the pursuit of, peace, happiness, empathy and compassion, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. ” Knowledge is power, but not when you abuse the power for self endeavors” ” The political witch hunt is over, but what kind of witch hunt will come next?” ” The Washington power game has become so corrupt, that there is no true power anymore”

The journey upon the water within nature

image

The sound of the oar passing through the calm water, so soothing and relaxing. The bow of the canoe bouncing over the ripples in the water, make for a beautiful journey, being the one and only canoe as I paddle throughout this lake, makes for a peaceful journey full of serenity and clearing the clouds within the minds eye.
With the canoe gliding through the water with ease and all the open water in front of you, gives you plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings around you. The Eagles soaring the skies above makes for great scenes, the Loons popping up out of the water in front of you may startle at first, then the beautiful bird glides through the water easier than you paddle the canoe, the fish jumping out of the water around you like watching the circus with the animals jumping through the rings, with all this action around you makes you feel like your really not alone on the water and now your within the homes of the wildlife, within the beauty of nature.
There is a lot more to this journey than just what we see in our daily grinds, unless you go out and explore, you may miss out on the best this journey has to offer. With our daily grind comes chaos, corruption, only seeing what’s in front of you and the ugliness that a society may bring, Stepping out within nature will not only show you true beauty, but will heal you from all ugliness that may torture you in the daily grind, not too mention the healing of the mind, body and soul, to soothe you as you relax and unwind. The people within a society can be cruel to each other at times, this can have you become someone you truly are not, this makes even more the reason to step out within nature and get consumed with all it’s beauty.

You never know of what you may stumble across as you explore the great outdoors, there are parts of the high country of Colorado, that you need a 4×4 to navigate the terrain and high altitudes, but when you stumble upon a ghost town from yesteryear and walk through what was once a busy town, now you gain a great respect for this journey here where you walk a path, knowing now that others of the past, also walked a path through this journey, before you even came to this journey. This journey is not just about you, as you now realize there where others from the past also, now you become intrigued and want to learn more of other societies of the past. Do you believe in Ghosts? Maybe as after stumbling upon some of yesteryears little secret towns, you can clearly see people where there and makes you wonder, with these building still standing strong, just maybe there is a kind of permanent resident? But none the less, makes for a great adventure, as you walk your path through this journey of life.

“ The beauty of nature soothing the soul with it’s stunning landscapes”
“ Paddling a canoe is good exercise that helps you look deeply into what you see”
“ Get out and explore as you never know of what you may stumble upon”
“ Ghosts…………… Maybe as others walked their paths of this journey before you”

The Ugliness is from we the People

” There is always light at the end of all the darkness, we just have to get through the darkness to truly see the light”

We all walk a path through this journey of life, so to did Jesus when he came here with us, Jesus saw all the ugliness we brought to each other, but he stayed true to himself and showed his love for us all, with every step of his journey. We the people are what’s wrong with this Society, as we will stop at nothing to bring this ugliness to each other with our actions.

Way back when Adam took that forbidden fruit is when the ugliness of sin started, which we have never learned through all these years, that ugliness is bad and only keeps that wedge buried deep between us all, until we all truly feel the love that Jesus showed us, that the same love is deep within us as well, we will never change and the darkness of all the ugliness, will forever hang over all our heads. When we truly feel this love within us and then share it with each other, that is when the darkness over head will disappear and we all can truly see the light, which will bring us to the path of righteousness, so we all can be at peace and happiness with each step of this journey.

We all start this journey very much the same way and no one is any different from another, okay we may have a different color, gender, or even religion, but these difference are what makes us unique to each other, it is just we have never learned to use the uniqueness the proper way, even after Jesus came here with us and showed us all. As we grow into this Society, there are plenty of ways along our paths for us to learn properly, but instead we attack one another in any way we can. Just like a school Bully will try to control us, we do the same to each other, when one looks a bit different, or maybe slow or challenged as we grow up as a child, we then mock and make fun of that person, showing no empathy or compassion for that person, we don’t think of that person at all, we only think of ourselves and how we look towards others if we don’t follow along. God forbid when that person gets hurt physically, then we proceed to laugh and make fun of even more, this is not of who we truly are, but it is who we have become over the years, because we have never learned by the error of our ways.

Now within this Society of great technology, with all the social media and the news media whether print or what we see on the television, we have created such great drama with all these gadgets we have in our hands, it has made it even easier to further all the ugliness, simply because we can hide behind these gadgets, without facing what we fear most in this society and that is, we fear the confrontation of each other above everything else around us. We have forgotten just how to simply talk to each other face to face, a lot of this comes from the Political correction we let in to our lives, we become offended very easily because this correction has weakened us so, through this political correction we have lost the ability to respect and have dignity of one another, which furthers the ugliness and makes the darkness even darker, with no light in sight.

With the light comes peace and when we are at peace, we are happy as we walk our paths of this journey. First we have to get over ourselves, even with all the technology we have, we really are not as smart as we think we are, everything we do we think we do it better than each other, we get so caught up within our own heads and our own little world, we then let the clouds of our judgments, simply cloud all our actions we may take. Just look within the walls of Washington DC, all these Individuals show nothing but ugliness and hate, we are going to have a Presidential election coming up in 2020 and already the Democrats and the Republicans are attacking one another. They have already turned the most powerful position on the land into one, with no respect or dignity, they have turned the office of President into nothing but a Hollywood celebrity contest, this next election is already shaping up into a three ring circus show, with zero respect for the office they are running for, we the people need to be smarter, we need to vote smarter and end all this corruption and hate, that flows within the walls of Washington DC.

We all have our troubles, but when we don’t fix those troubles properly, this is when we bring the troubles to each other, which furthers the ugliness around us. Through all this ugliness shows just how dumb we have become through the years of our existence, you would think we would of become smarter by now, we will never become any smarter as we keep attacking each other, as we mock and make fun of each other with each step, it really does not matter what part of this planet you are from, or who you may think you are, we are all Humans walking a path through this journey, the journey may have a lot to deal with, but when we do it correctly and while we truly feel the love of Jesus within us, then share that love with each other, this is how we make the journey feel easier, while the ugliness disappears and true peace and happiness comes to us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The hatred comes from the ugliness we the people bring to the society, we need more love to truly be of who we are”

” Technology is supposed to be better and make this journey easier for all, but we have totally gone the opposite way from it’s intention”

” We the people started this ugliness, we the people can end this ugliness as well”

The clouds take shape, as they speak in their own way

” While he was still speaking, a cloud came and cast a shadow over them, they became frightened when they entered the cloud, then from the cloud came a voice that said, ” This is my chosen son; listen to him” *** Lk 9:34-35 *** Within this Society we walk today, we are so far removed from the journey of Jesus Christ, that we have become so easily consumed by all the ugliness, that we see nothing in front of us, nothing only because we do not look deeper into what we see. We go into the house of God for once a week, then the rest of the week, we let the ugliness consume us once again, this has become one big vicious circle for each of us, to the point that we look up and just see clouds, without looking deeper and really seeing their shapes and hearing their suttle words for us from our savior Jesus Christ. With this weeks words from this quote from Luke, you can clearly see that this is a great quote for us all within this Society of today, simply because we of today only look superficially at all that is around us, instead of looking deeply into what you see. That guy you shrug off as a quack pot………. Maybe he is very smart and views the World very differently than you and I? We all look at the new Congresswoman, especially that one from New York who was a bartender, true she comes across as a quack pot and someone that has no clue on reality, but instead of looking at her as a joke, let’s try looking at her very deeply and just maybe we can see something in her, that will help us all in this Society. We all have something to give, just that when we become lost in the clouds of our judgments, we then never look deeply into what we see, anywhere around us. Wake up in the morning, you walk into the bathroom and what do you see? I mean what do you really see? Yes your reflection is in the mirror, but do you just see your reflection, or do you truly see of who you really are? Because within today’s Society if we all looked deeply into what we see, just maybe we would all see that, all this ugliness and hatred is not truly of who we are. With all these ugly shootings that happen around us, like the one in New Zealand, when we clearly look deeply into what we see, we will see that this is a reflection of one or a few and never a reflection of who we truly are, this Individual or Individuals responsible for this shooting is clearly troubled and in dire need to dig down deep, to truly feel the love of Jesus Christ within them, as we all have that same love within us, the problem then lies with each of us, as we don’t truly feel and acknowledge that love enough, within this Society we walk together. Let’s look at some of the certain media types out there, this is 100% the reason why none of us can look deeply into what we see, as these media types won’t let us, with all the crap they feed us daily. Simply because of all the crap, we then never look deeply into what we see, as we just skim across the top, just to try to keep moving forward with as little pain and hurt as we can. Through the drama of the media, we are then looked at and laughed at often, which then furthers us to bury a big part of who we are, so deep within ourselves that, we then forget it’s there to spare us from any pain and hurt. The media wants us to believe their rhetoric, just for them to keep the drama flowing and we the people, never to truly look deeply into what we see and truly see of who we truly are. That mountain top experience you hear in the Bible so many times, it is not about the climb of the mountain, it is of that special feeling you get deep within yourself, as Jesus talks to you on the top of the mountain, that deep warm feeling that flows through your veins with the blood of life, that warm feeling that fills your heart with love and keeps it beating to the rhythm of life, you don’t have to be a Mountaineer to truly feel all of this, all you need is, to truly look deeply into what you see, so you than can truly be all that you are and share the love of God with each other. Then and only then, will all this ugliness end and all the hatred go away, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that Jesus Christ his son showed us, as he walked his journey here with us as well. ” Everything comes to us for a reason, it is us that see’s through the clouds and finds the reason” ” Lets end all this ugliness around us as we then look deeply into what we see and not superficially at what we see” ” Some may climb the mountain only cause its there, others for a Facebook page, but you don’t need to climb a mountain for the true mountain top experience” ” Forget about what the media try’s to feed you, just look deeply at what you see, to truly see the good in all that is around you”

Life is not about buying your way into a status………….

I get the fact that each generation through this society, should be better than the one of the past, but at what cost are we really paying, when we buy our way into anything, without working hard and paying the dues as we should? With this latest scandal of the paying big money to get your child into an elite college, who are the ones really being hurt here? It’s the ones that were rejected because someone paid big dollars to get their child in, without even working hard to be accepted into that college. The ones that were rejected may have just done everything right and everything as they should, but because someone has money, doesn’t give them the right to jump ahead of the pack, just to give their child the prestige, or the right to claim a higher status over their Peers.

Going to college wherever that may be, should be respectful and full of knowledge, for whom ever the person is that is going. College should yes be a fun time for any student, as well as teach our children, just how to work hard and when you work hard, life will reward you with big rewards. You think those children whose Parents bought their way into the elite college, will work hard for their knowledge? Exactly!!! They are going to think that you can buy anything in life, plus they are going to party everyday, instead of working hard to achieve great things, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

I agree we all deserve some breaks from time to time, but only because you have worked hard for what you have, or for where you are? But when you buy your way into something only means one thing and one thing only, you simply have cheated the system and robbed someone else, for trying to help themselves and move forward, so they to can live the dream and earn respect with every step. We all have dreams, we all have hopes, but when you buy into something, now your shattering all hope and destroying any dreams away from another, while you are only thinking of yourself and no other.

Life doesn’t have to be about any status, nor does it have to be about money, although………… Yes you need money to pay the bills and live, but really now, life really is about being happy, peaceful and sharing your love and compassion with each other. the money is only extracurricular and by no means do we truly need it, just that in this society full of greed, we have come to attached to it, which has divided us, instead of bringing us together within the love and joy, that Jesus Christ brought to each of us everyday. Money may buy us material things, money may help us cheat and jump ahead of each other, but money will never buy true happiness, money will never buy us love, as love is already within each of us, we can’t take the money with us when we depart this journey, so why are we so hell bent on trying to acquire all the money?

” The only status in life that should matter, is your status with Jesus Christ, to keep the faith with great hope always”

” Instead of trying to show off to others with our wealth, may we try showing off Jesus Christ , for the true love and happiness always”

” College is good to be there for the right reasons, but not just to achieve a status”

When the view becomes obstructed

Sometimes our view of whatever we are looking at becomes obstructed, we can’t see clearly enough to pass a correct judgment, so we then make up any judgment that we think will be okay and for us, to move forward in a way we think we are better for it. This journey through life has many obstructions and at times we get frustrated which then has us not thinking through our actions, when we do this we just don’t hurt ourselves, we hurt all those around us as well, when all we simply have to do is, think and see through anything, before we actually take the action, so we all can be spared any real pain and hurt,

Most of the time we don’t want to see clearly as to spare us any pain and hurt, but this journey through life comes in what is known as a life cycle and just like any cycle, everything revolves in a circle, while yes it may be away from us, but eventually like all circles, it will come around once again. This is why we all need to see through and see clearly everything, making our future actions more informed, saving us from any pain and hurt that we really need not feel.

This journey through life may have a lot of elements to it, but when managed properly, these elements will help us walk peacefully along our paths of this journey. Sometimes these life events will come to us and try to control and disrupt our lives, this makes it very easy to not look clearly at what we are looking at, just so we can try to control any pain and hurt from effecting us so, we then hide deeply within ourselves as if we become invisible to all that is around us, this only compounds the pain and hurt further, which when the pain becomes to much, will then come to the surface like an explosion that rocks us to the point we can not handle. Anything in life when managed properly can be handled easily, just that we have to clear the weeds from our sight, to see more clearly all that is around us, then we can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

Look deeply into what you see, let your true feelings keep you in tune to all that is around you, so when the different cycles of life come a knocking, you will be ready, willing and able to deal with them properly, as you stay in control, without them controlling you. When we see clearly of all that is around you, we than can act properly , which will help us see through our actions, before we take the action, saving us all from the pain, the hurt and the sorrow, as we then walk our paths peacefully throughout this journey of life. With the pain and hurt we become to rash with our decisions and our actions, we react without thinking of the reactions, which then has us becoming way too negative and forces us come up with any solution, instead of the proper solution. Jesus came to us and showed us just how to walk our paths of this journey, so we all than can find that true path of righteousness, as we all live in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, without any of the ugliness we see around us today.

” Look deeply into what you see, to think of the reaction before you take the action”

” We all hurt from much pain and a lot of the pain can be avoided if we only saw more clearly before we react to what we think we saw”

” The journey of life has many elements, but when managed properly the elements never become to big too handle”

” All circles are connected with links, with wear and tear links become weak and break, why we need to see clearly to replace all broken links to be better and stronger”

The journey of Lent/Daylight savings

As the days become longer with the light of day and as we walk this journey through Lent, we now know that the season of camping is right around the corner, the season for us all to escape the daily grind and venture to the out doors, where Mother Nature is ready to show us her true beauty. Primitive camping where you pitch a tent and as you lay down to sleep within your sleeping bag, now you can listen to the heart beat of the Earth, listen to all the nightly sounds, like an owl waking from their sleep as they only can see clearly at night, maybe if your lucky you can hear the whispers of the night or maybe a nearby stream will comfort you to sleep with it’s running water?

With your camp site all set up and the camp fire ready for the night sky, you now can plan your day for tomorrow, maybe a hike up a mountain to see as far as you can from the summit of the mountain and as you walk up the trail, you may see some scenes you will never see within the daily grind. Yes it is true a hike can be a lot of work, but it is work much different than the daily grind, it is work that can relax you in the right frame of mind, let alone that it will help clear your mind from all the ugliness that comes with being within a society full of much ugliness. To escape within Mother Nature is a great way to unwind and totally feel the stress melt from your body. We within this ugly society and through the dark days of Winter, let way too much effect us and let all the ugliness consume us to the point that, we become bitter to all that is around us, we forget that there is a whole lot more to this journey of life than, what we see in our daily grind. Yes we all need a paycheck to pay the bills and survive in our lives, but we become so consumed with that…………. we then totally forget to take some ” me” time to unwind and cure our mind, body and soul, so we can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

Within this picture is so much peace and serenity, when you sit by the fire and take it all in, look out within the beauty in front of you, you can actually feel the stress leave your body and as the stress leaves you, now you can actually hear all that is around you, listen to the sweet sounds of the different wildlife around you, even hear the fish jump out of the water, hear the Eagles soar by with the greatest of ease, the loons chatting back and forth from a far, not too forget the many different birds singing their tunes throughout the echoes of the sky. There is so much beauty around you, you then forget of the daily grind and even though just for a short time, it is time you now can heal yourself from all the ugliness, heal yourself from what consumes you through the dark Winter days, so now you can clear the clouds from your judgments and totally heal your mind, body and soul from the stress of the daily grind.

Let’s not forget that when you escape to the beauty of Mother Nature, you are now within the home of many other different life forms on this planet, just like we live in our homes and we would hate for others to come in and disrupt our homes, we are now within the homes of so many animals within nature, like bear, moose, deer etc…. So as you set your camp always remember to respect their home, as we would want others to respect ours. Leave no trace while you are there and when you depart back to the daily grind, when you leave no trace when you leave, then you can come back to still more beauty, as Mother Nature is constantly changing with all within it. The plant life, the tree’s and even the animals, change all the time, just like we grow from our young ages, so does all within Mother Nature and it is a beautiful thing, to escape within nature and witness all the beautiful changes. Sometimes the changes to nature comes from violent weather, or maybe fire, but through these kind of changes, it may take some time, but the beauty does come back, for us all to enjoy once again. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with one of the great perks of this journey, is the taking of some time, to get out and escape the daily grind, to really enjoy the beauty of Mother nature, to be at peace and happiness with ourselves and as we then heal ourselves, to get back in touch with the love within us, so we than can share that love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Daylight savings may have us dread the loss of an hour, but we do gain more daylight to enjoy the great outdoors”

” Earth has a heart beat just like we do as well, mother nature has it’s beauty as do we as well”

” camping season is the chance for us all to escape the daily grind and relax to heal ourselves from the ugliness and see the true beauty of this journey”

” Mother nature has so much beauty within it, you can clearly see it all when you look deeply within what you see”

The choices from the happenings don’t have to define where we go

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, the paths are not always smooth or paved, a lot of times things happen to us along this journey, things we can’t explain or change, these happenings do not have to define us, nor do they have to dictate of where we are going through this journey, the choice is yours to make in order to walk your paths with confidence, walk your paths to be better and stronger, so as your path before you may look rocky or a bit out of source, the choice is yours to make in order to navigate along your path as best you can, so you yourself can dictate this journey the best way you can and make the path as smooth as you can.

We are all part of a Society that they to walk their paths of this journey, yes we do meet at the crossroads, but we don’t have to follow them and we can blaze out our own paths as best we can, so we than do not get caught up in all the ugliness like we see today throughout this society. Our inner strength comes from that child within us and when we don’t let that child grow correctly, then we lose that inner strength, which then has us become weak and unable to protect ourselves properly from all harm, which then has us all becoming so consumed within all the ugliness we see today. This does not mean we are better than each other, just that some may try to make others think that they are? Which then has us like…………… Thinking that whatever we do is wrong, but on the contrary, there is no wrong along this journey through life, especially if we walk our paths as best we can, without forcing ourselves on each other, without harming each other or bringing great pain to each other, when we respect each other, when we show love toward each other, then no matter of the path you take, we all will find that path of righteousness that Jesus showed us along his journey here with us, the path of righteousness is the path where there is no evil, no ugliness and that path where we all love one another as Jesus loved us, when he came to us and walked here with us.

This is the start of the 40 day journey of Lent, that same journey Jesus walked to not only show his love for us, but to show us all that there is a way around the ugliness and walk this journey in peace and happiness always. The choice is always ours to make, when we make the right choices, then the path that seems rough at first glance, will then become better, not that the terrain becomes smoother, but because we ourselves will see everything much better, because we than do not look at everything as evil. When we see everything as tough and evil, then Satan will sense this this and then the evil and ugliness will seem to grow around us, the choice is ours to make along our paths of this journey, the time is now along this 40 day journey of Lent, to make all the right choices, so we can end all the evil and ugliness, to move forward in love, peace and happiness always, as our Savior Jesus Christ showed us, along his journey here with us, throughout this journey of life.

” 40 day journey of lent for us all to renew and make better our paths of this journey through life”

” All paths have their degree of difficulty, its we who make the difficult less of to make the paths better as we walk”

” The paths and the happenings along the paths never have to dictate where we are going along the paths”

As Jesus walked this journey, so do we

” How can you say to your brother, Brother let me remove that splinter in your eye, when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?

*** LK 6:42a***

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and as we enter into the forty day journey of Lent, let us remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, showing just how deeply he loved us, while he to walked this journey, showing us all that yes, we to can share our love within, with each other.

Basically this quote talks of, before we can reach out to help another, we first need to help ourselves and over come all that we may be going through and struggling through. If you want to pull that splinter out of your brothers eye, then first clear the obstruction from your own, so you than can see clearly of what you are doing and as you see clearly, then the clouds of your judgments, will then be gone as the love within you, will then not only comfort you, but comfort your brother, as you remove the splinter, so he to can see clearly along this journey of life.

We all have our issues as we walk our paths of this journey, but yet we always see the faults of others and never see any faults of our own, we are always quick to point the finger towards others, but never point the finger at ourselves and accept any blame for whatever we do, others will surely pick up on our faults before we even recognize them ourselves. We are all guilty of this behavior, but we will never admit to any faults we may have.

A lot of times these faults will bring us great shame, shame that brings us great pain and when we hurt deeply inside, we then bury these faults deep within, so we than can try to move forward like there is nothing holding us back. So as we do this, we than never look at our own faults, instead we point out the faults of others, which then will stop us from truly getting to know one another, only forcing us to look at each other superficially, without truly looking deeply at what we see. There is always more than what we may see initially, just that we don’t truly want to see, cause then it will make us look deeper into ourselves.

Jesus as he walked this journey with us, showed us all that when we stay true to ourselves, truly feel our feelings within and feel the warmth of his love within us, then we to can not only love ourselves, but love all those around us, without any evil or unwanted thoughts. Nobody ever wants to show any fault, as this will bring out weakness and within a broken society as we are currently in, then any weakness will bring us more shame and pain, which we then will be open to becoming a victim of any kind, furthering the pain for which we already have.

Weakness brings pain and in a society of fakness, weakness makes you vulnerable over those who pretend to be strong, as they then seem to be more powerful than they really are. We never want to admit to our faults, so we than can bury them and seem strong to those around us, while we then point the finger of fault on those around us. We are all guilty of pointing the finger of blame, which does nothing but deflect any blame from ourselves, so we then never fix what we need to fix, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

So as we walk yet another Lenten journey, let us do so as Jesus did these next forty days, let us sacrifice as Jesus did for us, as we truly get back in touch with our true feelings, unbury those faults as we work to fix what we need to fix, then we can truly move forward better and stronger and treat each other with respect, to keep our dignity, showing our true love for each other, then we can walk confidently on our paths, through this journey of life.

” Lets walk this journey of lent and sacrifice as Jesus did for us, to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Faults can only be fixed when we stay true to who we are, without burying them like they are nothing but dirty laundry”

” The journey of lent is a forty day journey, to get back to who we truly are, to become better and stronger moving forward”

” Our issues do not have to define us on our paths, they should help us to be better and stronger moving forward”
