” The keeping up with the Jones”…

Waterfall

 

Who are the Jones? And why do we need to keep up with them?

Who knows when or even why this saying has been around so long? All this saying does is turn each of us against each other and stops us from truly being who we really are. Just like the saying of ” having the American dream”, we all think we know what this is for example, big house, white picket fence, two cars with garages, wife/husband, children, wealth and our own piece of the pie. Unfortunately throughout this Society of today, this American dream has caused us to step on each others shoe shine, to the point no matter what we do, nothing shines around us anymore. We all have our issues and our struggles throughout this journey of life, we all want the American dream and keep up with the Jones part of the pie, but unfortunately we have all gone the wrong way and find ourselves exerting all our energy at swimming up the stream of the waterfall, instead of making it easy and simply flowing as the current down this stream within this picture.

It is okay for some good fun and competition between us, but when this good fun and competition turns to ugliness, like we see around us today, you think we need to truly change and look deeply into everything that is around us? Competition between two Sports Teams is part of the game and the magic word is “game”. We as Individuals who watch these teams, have taken this competition to an all new level, a level that has turned us all against each other, cause we don’t see it as a game anymore, we see the friendly competition between two Teams and have turned this competition into, an ugly competition that has forced us to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, without truly being who we really are.

We all have a purpose in life, we all set our goals so we can find what our purpose truly is. I understand we all have our issues and struggles along our paths, but when we don’t address and fix these issues, the struggles will never end and we will never find out what our true purpose really is. Life is a journey that we all walk along a path, the journey may be the same, as the path and the purpose are all different to each of us, not everybody has to keep up with the Jones to achieve true happiness, as well as not everybody will achieve the American dream for true happiness also, true happiness comes from each of us, addressing the issues and fixing them, so we all can find our purpose and walk our paths in peace, with true happiness along this journey of life.

 

” The journey through life may be the same, but the path and the purpose is much different to each one of us”

” The struggles and issues of life may have us swimming up stream into the waterfall, but addressing the issues and fixing the struggles will have us swim down stream, making our paths more peaceful with happiness”

” good competition between us is okay, but when it turns ugly is when we have to change the game, to make the competition fun again”

 

A troubled Society we live today

This Society we live today, is very troubled and in need of a fixing, the way we do this is, to fix ourselves and change our ways, so we can bring to Society the much needed fix, in order to move forward with confidence and the strength to handle anything along our Journey of life.
We all in this Society are guilty of “judgeing the book by it’s cover”, without looking deep within each other and what they truely can bring to our lives and the lives of all within the Society, when we meet other’s for the first time, we may smile to be nice at first, then we proceed to turn our backs because they are not like us? Hello it’s time to stop this full of myself attitude and be more accepting, of all those that are around us.
Everybody wants to come to America cause it is known as the land of oppurtunity and we all want the American dream, but when people from all over come here and now our American soil is flooded with people seeking the same, eventually everything backfires right in front of us, we become bitter and than look at other’s around us with a close mind, instead of an open mind, which makes us judge even the ones we don’t know, before we even get to know them, when we do this it forces us to miss out on everything and anything that may come across our path.
When we judge before we get to know, we are missing out on something that might even make ourselves and our lives better, but in this Society we have become so afraid of the unknown, we don’t open ourselves up anymore, because we fear the harm it may bring, nobody wants to bring harm to themselves, but yet we have all been harmed in one way shape or form, in our past within our lives, the judgeing can be done later when we truely know what we are judgeing.
In the Societies of the past, like the ones before Jesus walked his Journey on this planet Earth, we will find many similarities to our own Society, with the Greed, Jealousy and the full of myself mentality in the forefront, these are the qualities that will ruin a Society, let alone what it will do to Mankind itself, when God sent his only son in Jesus to us, he showed us just how the path of rightousness is the path to true happiness, we in this Society have swayed to a different path, instead of the path of rightousness, much like the Society of before Jesus came to us, this Society is nothing but sadness and pain, cause simply we judge everything in order to keep harm from coming to us, even if what we judge could be good for us and all those around us.
The path of rightousness will find us, we don’t have to find it, all we have to do is, simply be true to ourselves, so we can be true to other’s, this means get to know everyone/everything around us and not judge before hand, stop this full of myself mentality, cause you never know who or what may cross your path, that will help make your path better, which will make all our journey’s better and with much happiness, Jesus showed us the way, it’s time we get back to his lessons, so we all can be happy, while living and walking our journey’s, harm will always find us if we let it, it’s only Saten trying to tempt us with Temptation, but like Jesus when we stay true to ourselves, this temptation will disappear and we all can walk our journey’s of life in happiness, while being strong and better than Societies of the past.

” Temptation will tempt us if we let it, but staying true to ourselves will keep it from harming us always”

” When we are full of ourselves, we judge everything around us, which keeps us from being truely happy”
