Through the Eagles eyes

Power, Beauty, majestic, not too mention a keen eyesight to see clearly everything that is around him. The American Bald Eagle was picked to be our nations symbol for a reason, for when you look deeply into that reason, everything that the Eagle is, so we can walk our paths through this journey of life. To watch the Eagle fly through the skies with the greatest of ease and really, with zero effort at all, those big powerful wings flapping away to give him speed, as then with the wind currents, he glides a great distance as far as the eye can see. The Eagle is our symbol here in America, quite simply because, he mirrors all the same qualities of each of us, we to are powerful, beautiful, majestic and with such great vision, we can see far and near, we can see what is and then predict what is to be? The biggest difference between the Eagle and us is, they can fly through the great big blue yonder, as we need help from a plane or a helicopter.

Having great vision is key to truly seeing all that is around you, but the issue with us is the fact that we are all part of a society and what we bring to society, will shape what society will become. The society for which we live today is so screwed up, it is very hard to see clearly through all the clouds of each others judgments. Everybody has a view and we all think that our own view is the correct and right way, but if we all have the correct view, then which view is truly the correct one? What ever view has been good for you, may not necessarily be correct for another, simply because we are all not the same, yes we have some similarities, but we are more unique to each other than similar, the problem is, we do not use this uniqueness as we should, instead and even more so within this society, we would rather step on each other, bring great harm and pain to each other, just so we can appear to be more powerful than each other. Until we get off our high horse, this society will never change, we will keep attacking one another for really no reason at all, except the fact that we ourselves want to appear more powerful than anything else on this planet of Earth.

You have some within this society who are so blinded by the clouds of their judgments, they clearly can not see any true reality even if it bit them on the cheek, even further there are others who want to change what we are, change where we came from, why? I have no clue, except maybe that they themselves have been hurt so deep by something, that just maybe they are trying to hide everything that reminds them of that pain, as they try further to move forward with the fake self that they try to portray. What they do not understand is, you can never truly change what has happened, it will always be there, everything happens for a reason, it is up to us to find that reason, so we can make the necessary improvements, fix what we need to fix, as we than can truly move forward better and stronger. It is not our place to take away things in the past just because we want to, just because those things may remind ourselves of our ugliness, maybe those same things bring joy and happiness to another? It is not right to change things just because, this is not how true change works. True change is we adjusting ourselves to all that is around us, true change comes when we accept the what was, so we than can change what we need, fix what we need to fix, then take the proper steps moving forward, to be better and stronger with each step, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Jesus showed us how to accept true change and what would happen if we don’t, the choice is yours just don’t let it affect another”

” The Eagle may be sitting quietly, but he truly is very powerful with beauty as he soars the open skies”

” With great vision comes great strength, as we than can face anything head on, to truly accept change as we then become truly of who we are”

Escape within the beauty of Mother Nature

The quiet serenity and beauty all around you, that is exactly what escaping within Mother Nature is all about. Leaving the daily grind even if it is for a short time, it is time much needed with all the drama and ugliness within the daily grind. Camping season is right around the corner and having reservations for a camp site on Memorial weekend, I simply can not wait to unwind and totally relax within the beauty of Mother Nature.

The beach in this picture may be a bit rocky, but it is a beach that you can enjoy all to yourself, a beach to sit and watch the Eagles fly by and on occasion, swoop down into the water for it’s daily meal. Then there is the Loon swimming by as it sings back and forth with other Loons, what a beautiful sound to just sit and relax, as you listen to them in their habitat. Then if your lucky enough without being to noisy, a friendly Moose will come out of the woods to the lake shore, for a drink and a bath. Now let’s not forget all the different sounds you hear within woods behind you, some sounds you would normally never hear within the daily grind, Mother Nature is pure beauty and never ever forget!!! You are now within the homes of the animal kingdom, which you need to respect, just like you would want others to respect your home as they come to visit you.

As quiet as this picture is, it is really this quiet as you sit on this rocky beach in person, while you sit in your comfy chair on this beach and take in all the beauty around you, you will actually feel the stress of the daily grind leave your body, the clouds of your judgment, will become clear as you look out within the beauty, the transition from the daily grind, to the beauty of Mother Nature is the most beautiful thing and we all need more of it.

When you take to the outdoors and within the beauty of Mother Nature, you also have to explore and see things you never will see within the daily grind, when I lived in the great state of Colorado, I had a 4×4 pick up and would venture in the back country and as high as 13,000 feet on a mountain, the beauty I would come across would take your breathe away, plus from time to time, come across a few Ghost towns, dating back in time from the gold rush days, I would stop and get out of the truck to walk around these towns, as I then would gain a big respect for those of our past, seeing that a lot of the buildings were still standing strong today. I would also come across some animals I would never see otherwise as they lived within the high country, like the Doll sheep, and the Ram sheep, even mountain lion and antelope, plus some pretty big bull Elk, it is so beautiful to see these kind of animals in their elements. I came across this herd of Ram sheep one time, as some where actually ramming each other with the horns, I must say I was getting a headache watching this, as in the daily grind you would never get a chance to see this at all.

There is so much to the beauty of Mother Nature and unless you get out and explore this beauty, you will never see or witness this beauty, from the daily grind that we all get caught up within. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all become too programmed within our daily grinds, to the point that some never get out to see the true beauty of Mother Nature, When you think about it……………. That is too sad because, we then become too tense and have no idea of what truly relaxing really is. When we are too tense that is when we bring all the ugliness we see today to each other, we then think that this is the norm? This is not truly of who we are, who we truly are…………….. Are people with love in our hearts that keeps us warm inside, when we become too tense, we then never truly feel the warmth of this love and then never share it with each other. The warmth of the love within your heart, is Jesus Christ our savior and his love for us, he loves us all deeply and equally, no matter of who you are, we within today’s daily grind, never give ourselves a chance to truly feel this love, as we become so engulfed, within the ugliness and hatred of today.

” Escape to the beauty of mother nature, to truly relax and get back in touch with the warmth of love within your heart from Jesus Christ”

” The rocky beach at first glance may look rough, but it’s true beauty will surround you with plenty of peace and serenity”

” The sounds of mother nature will totally relax you, as the stress of the daily grind will melt from your mind, body and soul”

” It may be a ghost town now, but at one point it was a bustling little town, full of joy, happiness and love”

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”

Hate belongs no where within this journey we all walk

” Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you or insult you, denounce your name as evil, on account of the son of man. Behold your reward will be great in Heaven”.

***LK 6:22, 23b***

The son of man or otherwise known as Jesus Christ, when Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he never did so out of hate, he never even acted as if there was even any hatred as part of him, Jesus treated us all as equals and yes there are no two of us alike, so tell me who you are and I am welcoming you with open arms.

As calm and as beautiful as this picture is within Nature, is all that we could ever imagine of what to expect within Heaven. First we all have to drop all the hate, as this is what just may stop us from truly meeting Jesus within the beauty of Heaven. Jesus showed zero hate of anybody while he walked his journey here with us, hate comes from right here with us, as we are the ones that developed this hatred that is among us today. Socialism breeds hatred and the dividing of each one of us, against each other, even while the love of Jesus Christ is within the hearts and souls within us.

Hatred takes a lot of work everyday from each of us, as love is very natural and within us all and takes zero effort to spread it with all who is around us. Why this hatred has spread among us today, I really have no answer for this, because this is not truly of who we are and it is not of what Jesus taught us along his journey with us. I get the fact that we are all very diverse of each other, but this diversity should never be of what divides us so, we are all very unique to each other, which when we bring forward our uniqueness, then we can move forward better and stronger, out of the love of Jesus, with zero hatred anywhere along our paths.

When those among us call us names, hate on us, or simply exclude and insult us, only means one thing of those who do this, which is the fact that these Individuals have zero self esteem of themselves and have zero belief or faith in Jesus Christ our savior. If only these Individuals could have any faith in Jesus Christ, then there could be hope for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life, so we all can be in the peace of God, with nothing but true happiness at every turn of the journey.

The love of God within us all will warm us so,

The belief and faith in Jesus will give us much hope,

As we all search for the entrance of the pearly gates to Heaven,

Let us forever end the hate, to share the love that is within us all.

” Hate is the ugliness that surrounds us today, love will always turn the ugliness into great beauty”

” Socialism is nothing but hatred and division and is truly of who we are not”

” Love is within us all with great beauty and warmth as through love there will never be any hatred”

Change can be beautiful……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” True change is the most beautiful thing we will ever witness and it is deeper than the change we look at”

 

At first glance of this picture we see ugliness, with all the dead wood in the foreground, but this is how we have become trained within this Society of today, first you see the negative in all that is around you before you actually see the positive around the negative. ” For every negative there is a positive”, This Society has become a Society of negativity, we always point out the negative before we even give positivity a chance. Those who walked this journey before us were never as negative as we are today, or this Society wouldn’t of even had a chance to flourish as we do today, but we can flourish even better, if we only look at the positive like we look at the negative.

Whenever something happens around us, we first look at the negative part of what happened and then alienate the ones that created the negative juice around us. If only we looked at the negative and turned it into a positive, maybe then we all could flourish within this Society, be positive at all around us, show our true empathy within each of us towards one another, then maybe we all could walk our paths of this journey through life, peacefully and in happiness throughout our existence here on this planet.

This picture here shows that, yes even the plant life like us, end their existence and then new life takes their place to bring out the true beauty of nature. Nothing lasts forever, nothing not even us as Humans are expendable, everything can be replaced, that is part of nature and that is part of who we are, as God created all that is around us, to keep everything moving forward, instead of becoming stagnate and negative, like the Society of negativity we are today.

Now if we only trained ourselves to see the positive before the negative, then we could see the beauty within this picture and then maybe even get rewarded with a sighting of a moose coming out of the woods? This journey of life is like that, you get what you put into it, or you get what you perceive that this journey should give you? In the end it is we the person that can control how positive or negative our lives are, we just have to learn to accept what is around us and look at the beauty of everything and not dwell in the past or see everything in a negative light.

The power of positivity goes a lot further than any negativity we may get caught up into, the negative vibes we get caught up into, comes from the Life Events that come to us along our paths, yes we all have these events, some may be small and less likely to affect us, but most are big and will affect us in ways we won’t understand, unless we take the time to understand them, these events will also control who we truly are if we let them, this is where all this negativity around us comes from, as we do nothing to actually turn the negative into a positive. Just like in Nature when you see the positive and the beauty around you, you get rewarded with a sighting of a moose, or another beautiful species that walk their paths with us, we to will be rewarded with goodness all around us on our paths here in this Society, when we see the positive, instead of taking the lazy way and seeing nothing but negative all around us. This life is to precious to move forward in negativity without seeing the positive, we all walk a path through this journey of life, through positive ways and not negative ways, we all can walk in peace and be totally happy in all we do, while the rewards come in ways we won’t see, but in ways that help us be truly of who we are.

 

” The positive energy totally outweighs the negative energy, we just have to look past the negative ant let the positive flow like a stream down a mountain”

” To see past the ugliness of negativity, we first have to trust ourselves and see the positive that is around us”

” It is more natural to see the positive in everything, as the negative takes more work on all our parts”

 

True Wilderness Camping

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Camping to us now was a way of life for so many, for so long”.

 

A camping site like this one has its own uniqueness about it in the way that, you need a boat to get to it with all your camping equipment aboard. Once you get out there and set up, this site will help you appreciate what was once a life style for so many, for so long.

Within this Society today we totally have forgotten just what true wilderness camping is, it is a form of camping known as, Primitive camping. Which there is nothing out there except what you bring and how you take the time to enjoy everything that is around you. Primitive camping isn’t for everybody, as most are so used to their flushing toilets, that they don’t want to go without them.   Then there is the building of the campfire for cooking your meals and to keep the chill of the night air away from you. Tents…… is a big part of the equipment as without it, now you are sleeping outside under the stars, which ain’t a bad thing, but it will also have you sleeping with all the night time species that crawl the Earth floor, or maybe a Bear or two that may invade your site?

When camping in spots such as this that is off the beaten path and difficult for most to get to, it will bring you all the peace and serenity you want, it will also if you let it? Help you clear the fog from your judgments, so you can get back to being truly of who you are. When camping deep within the Wilderness, it will help you become confident in yourself, as everything you do you have to work for it, like gathering wood for the fire, so you can cook and keep the night time chill in the air away, but once camp is set and the wood gathered for the cozy campfire, now is the time to totally unwind, lift the weights off the shoulders that you carry around in the everyday life, so you can totally relax and get back to the true person that you have always been, except that the daily grind of normal life, has taken from you and hidden it deep within your sole.

Within this Society we have wandered away from truly being who we are, we have hidden deep within our soles our true selves and replaced it with a fake self, just to compete and live among one another. We try to be someone we are not, simply because we want to put ourselves above all those around us, when someone has become successful we then try to be as successful as them, but really what truly is success? Success isn’t defined by the big house, the fancy car, or even the amount of money you have, success is different for each one of us, as for each of us to be truly successful, only means moving forward on our paths of this journey through life, within happiness, while being confident in all we do, so we can all find the peace and serenity within this journey we all deserve.

We also within this Society have lost within ourselves our true love and empathy, of not just ourselves but of each other as well. This true love and empathy is within us all, just that we have buried it deep within, to protect ourselves from all the crap and hurt, that brings us great pain, then while we bury the love and empathy and try to move forward with no pain, we then get so accustomed to it, that we forget and bury it even further within us. this is what true Primitive camping can do for us all, it can get us back in touch with our inner selves, feel the love and empathy deep within us, so we can get back to who we truly are. Yes you have to work for your survival out there, but this kind of work brings you great rewards, that will make you better and stronger as you walk your path through this journey of life.

 

” Primitive camping is a type of camping that you work during your stay within Nature, but it will always give you big rewards as well”

” Being true to who you are is surrounded by our true love and empathy, which leaves no room for the pain and the hurt of any hatred that we may find”

” a camp site in the middle of no where has its own uniqueness to it, which will have us all change to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Some may not try the Primitive type of camping, simply because they lack the confidence and are afraid to find their true selves”

 

Many Roads throughout our Journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” There are many roads for us to travel through this journey of life, each of the roads are very different in their Characteristics”

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, with these paths comes many roads and cross roads, for us to make a choice in which direction to go. Before we come to any road, we all start this journey very much in the same way and no one is different than the other. We are born and raised from two loving Individuals, that take their love and make the most precious thing on this planet……… A child. Somewhere along this journey and the choices of the roads we follow, we have lost what being a good parent is, we have lost our way along this journey and we make big choices without thoroughly thinking the choice through, before we take the action of that choice.

We as Humans are no different than any other species on this planet, as two loving Individuals form a child out of their love of one another, this is all part of the cycle of life and just what God wanted when he created all that walk and breathe on this planet of Earth. With this Child comes great responsibility on the part of these Parents and to make the choice of being a parent, is one of the biggest choices any of us will ever make, along the roads of this journey of life.

Now within this Society we all live, we can clearly see that, there have been some choices made without thinking through of the actions of the choice, as some are having children and then neglecting them without taking their responsibility more seriously. Some are having children with many partners instead of having just one that will share the responsibility and help raise the child. God created a man and a woman to become more than friends, he wanted them to be together for eternity, so they then can develop a deep love of one another and out of this love, they then can have a child to raise and teach, so the child can one day have the same responsibility themselves. When you raise a child properly, you need both the characteristics of the man and the woman to raise the child properly, just as the characteristics of the roads are different our characteristics are also  different then each other and when we bring them together in a good way, there is nothing but beauty and love that comes to each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Within this Society today we don’t take the time to truly look around as we travel down the roads of life, when we don’t take the time we need, we then make rash decisions at the cross roads, instead of thinking through our decisions of the choice in the road we select. just because one road is paved and the other is gravel or dirt, you can’t assume that the paved will be the road best traveled? sometimes there are many cracks in the pavement that we need to over come, which then detours us from our actual direction, with these detours we then become side tracked and lost along our way and as we try to find our way, we then lose totally of who we truly are. Life will always throw you a curve ball, it is how you see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine if you hit the ball out of the park or not. There is no road that is a bad road, it is just how we view the road and how we make the choice of the road, that determines our destiny as we walk our paths, along this journey of life and will also determine, how peaceful and happy we are, as we move forward within this journey.

 

” This journey of life throws us many curve balls, it is how we see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine how far we hit the ball”

” Having a child comes with a big responsibility, with the right choices this responsibility turns into great love and happiness throughout our journey”

” God created a man and a woman not for us to objectify each other, but to truly look at each other respectfully and to create a beautiful life with our true love of one another”

” Their are many roads in which to travel, some may be paved and some may be dirt, but they all have their own characteristics of each other”

 

The Wood Pecker’s Chronicle

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I remember the cartoon called Woody the Wood Pecker, this guy on this Birch tree isn’t quite as colorful or loud as Woody was. Watching him peck into this tree, I can say one thing that, for a small bird he has one heck of a strong beak. While camping deep in the Wilderness, there were many different birds that I have seen, with the Eagle being the one most viewed daily. All these birds fly around so open and free, with no worries of anything as they fly around. Then there were the Loons and the Canada Geese swimming in the lake and moving about as free as the birds flying in the sky. Maybe if there is reincarnation? I would love to come back as a bird, more specific, the American Bald Eagle, because they soar among the thermal in the sky as free and with a worry free mind, plus as they fly they do it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle is a big bird with a big wing span and when he fishes in the lake, it is awesome to watch as he swoops down on it’s prey, then grabs it within its claws and fly’s away to the nest they call home. When the Eagle swoops down to grab the fish, they make it look so easy like maybe I to could just reach in and grab a fish? But as I try, I then find out it ain’t so easy.

Just as we walk our paths through this journey of life, they to being the Birds also have a path to follow along their journey through life. We share this planet of Earth with many other species, but some may think we own this planet? on the contrary, God created this planet for all to coincide with each other, to enjoy and travel their journey in peace and happiness, but we the Human species through Greed and Stupidity, have made all our journeys become painful and full of chaos. We have totally forgotten how to share anything with anybody anymore, all we want is me…..me……me…… all the time, with no respect or regard for anything around us. This was not God’s vision when he created all within this planet, but it is how we Humans have evolved through our own stupidity and the need for Greed. We have ruined all the Habitats of all the other species, with the building up of all the land around, then we wonder why we are now being visited by some of the wild creatures around us? It is not uncommon for a Bear or a Moose to run through our yards today, simply because we have torn down their homes, to build up our homes to sell and become more greedy. Now we look for cleaner energy like the wind mill farms, where the Government wants to put them up by the 100’s, but unless you take the land from the people, where then will you turn? cause if you turn to cutting down more tree’s to open up an area for these windmills, now your forcing the animal world out of their homes, to try to blend in somewhere else and where do you think that somewhere else is? Correct, right in our own back yards. The bottom line for all the corruption and greed we see today is, everybody has their hands out for the green paper, with no regard or respect for what is around them anymore.

With all this corruption, greed and stupidity around us today, I would love to be an Eagle right now, simply because they are a protected bird, being the symbol of our Country and with that said, they can fly freely to where ever they want to go, with no worries of where they are going, not too mention only the Bear is as good as a Fisherman as they. Ahh!!! the beauty of soaring the great blue yonder, seeing everything from up above and then shitting on all the corruption below and I would know where just to drop the little turd bombs, then laugh as I fly by…….then as I return to the nest that i would call home.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as all the other species around us. to stop all this corruption and have no regrets, we first have to start respecting all that is around us, then we have to eliminate the greediness that has engulfed us, so we then can walk our paths in peace and all our journey’s will be happy for all.

 

” The American Bald Eagle is a beautiful bird, that simply soars through the sky with the greatest of ease”

” Corruption, Greed and stupidity has engulfed us all, time to respect all that is around us, to end the ugliness that has engulfed us”

 

” We wouldn’t want anybody to force us out of our homes, why then do we do it to the other species”

” Woody the Wood Pecker in the cartoon was fiction, as the real Wood Pecker blends in to the environment and isn’t as flamboyant”

 

The true Righteous need no Fan fare

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

” Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the Righteous”

 

*****LK 14:14

 

 

Just as this branch has its many other branches and all these logs despite their state of repair, we to do not need the glory or the fame, to truly succeed along our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he didn’t want all the fanfare, he wanted to walk among us as simple as he could, but yet through his actions and at his resurrection, was when we the people saw the repayment of his love toward us all.

We in this Society put so much pressure on ourselves, just to succeed in a way that we think succeeding is supposed to be, with all this pressure we then become sick in ways we don’t truly understand, to succeed is not about the fancy cars, the big house, the knowing of what we may think of being in the “in crowd”, or the knowing of what we think are people that are more successful than ourselves. “True success is within you yourself and within your heart”. Success doesn’t have to be about how you look towards others, it definitely doesn’t have any measurement or comparison to each other in any way shape or form, this is the part of our walking this journey, that does nothing but makes us all sick and forces us against each other, simply because we now become jealous of one another.

We are similar in a way like this branch, we come into this World pretty much the same, then we branch out (sort of speak) in many different ways, making success of one, very different than the success of another.  Then instead of looking for payment as we try to find our true selves, we will get plenty pay as we watch with pride, what our journey has been from a far. When we try to be successful in life, by reaching for the big house, the fancy cars etc….. All we are truly doing is, hurting ourselves and becoming sick from trying to hard and trying to measure our success on one another. Jesus went to many gatherings along his journey, he never wanted to sit with those who thought they were the “in crowd”, he only wanted to be seen with those that others thought of as non successful, he didn’t care what others thought of him, he only cared what he thought of himself, as his heart became full, with the love of himself toward one another.

We in this Society have become so engulfed with what we think success is, that we have totally lost the true meaning of success. The not knowing of true success has lead us into a world full of hatred of one another, with no sign of Empathy anywhere along our paths of this journey. True success is never seen among us, it is only felt deep within our core of our being, Jesus taught us this within his journey, but being so far removed from his journey, only proves how much we have forgotten from his journey. We all walk a path through this journey of life, to truly succeed  we have to feel it, while we feel the love of Jesus within our hearts, which is our guide that tells us, we are on the right track. When we feel nothing as we try to succeed with the fancy cars and the big house, only proves just how out of touch we have become, not just of ourselves, but with each other of this Society.

 

” True success is never seen among us, as it is only felt deep within our core”

” The fancy cars and the big houses are only material things that mean nothing toward our true success of life”

” Hiking to any summit of a mountain will show you what the feeling of true success is and will also show you that it takes time to achieve and truly feel the good of true success”

 

Why do they call it the Loon???

This bird known as the Loon, is also known as the Maine state bird. Not sure how it received the name of Loon ( have to research this), but the sound it makes is so soothing, as you sit lake side and relax watching the sunset  to the sound of the Loon.  The Loon is a quiet bird that goes about it’s business very quietly, it doesn’t bother anyone as it swims around the lake with no worries in the World. As good as the Loon swims above the water, it swims very well below also, you see him in this picture here and as you take the shot, he will duck under water and swim to the other side of the lake, like a fish beneath the water. The Loon and the Eagle as well as a few Herring, are what I saw most of as I camped for a week in northern Maine, mixed in with a Moose one morning at 4:00 am. I was woken one morning by some splashing outside my tent, but as I slowly opened the door, as to not alarm what was out there, I saw a Moose splashing water on himself/herself, wish I could of taken a picture, but didn’t want to startle the Moose with the flash, as it wasn’t light enough to take the shot without it. We all need to take a break every once in a while in a place where peace and serenity are everywhere, We all want to go to the exotic places where there are way to many others with the same idea, to me this is no way to totally relax, this could also be a big reason why there is way too much ugliness in our Society today? When most go south for the beaches and heat, I go north for cool and the mountains and around these mountains is where you find the peace and serenity, front and center all around you.

Like I said the Loon is a quiet bird that goes about his/her business and doesn’t bother anything around it, so why then the name of the Loon? I can think of a few of the species of the Humans that should have the name the Loon, simply because some are just a Lunatic, that will harm and hurt you, without thinking twice about it. We should all be like the Loon and enjoy everything that is around us, without trying to hurt others, in order to try to control everything around you.We all at one time or another have been a Victim, or we have Victimized someone else? It could be something simple like giving the finger as someone cut in front of you on the road, or maybe you got angry and punched someone in the face breaking their nose, or maybe even mentally like, not acknowledging someone, that just wants to be a friend? Either way you have been a creator of a Victim, or maybe you have been the Victim of this similar behavior?   Until we all treat each other with respect and dignity, this ugliness will never go away, we are the real Loons or lunatics here as we walk our paths of this journey through life, because the Maine state bird known as the Loon, is a peaceful bird that soothes you with it’s sounds as the sunsets on the lake.

This picture is so peaceful on so many levels, the calm water of the lake making the travel of the Loon easy across it’s journey, then the Loon just swimming along as peaceful as can be and unless you were looking out into the lake, you would never of saw him. This is what peace and serenity is all about, this is how to totally relax and wipe your mind clear of all the negative thoughts. As you sit in your chair lakeside and watch the sunset, listening to the soothing sound of the Loon, Then clearing your mind of all the ugliness, this is how to totally relax and as you relax, with all the pressures of everyday escaping your body, you will fall quickly asleep, leaving you with real sleep and not just closing your eyes, so you can function at work the next day. This could be the answer to all of us in this Society and for the why of, how this ugliness has engulfed us all. We simply don’t take the time to truly relax and to truly get the rest we need, in order to function properly, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” why call this beautiful bird the Loon, when it is nothing but peaceful and bothers nothing along its journey”

” To totally relax is something we all need to learn and take the time to truly do”

” Negativity breeds this ugliness around us, time we all do our part and let the negative thoughts go once and for all”

” Instead of the name of the Maine state bird being the Loon, maybe something more peaceful would of been more appropriate”
