Lift the clouds within the Society

” And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”

LK 11:9

 

We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, we all come to think along the way that our way trumps another, but there is no set way, there is no magic to the journey, just us being ourselves, without being of someone for who we truly are not. This quote by Luke can be taken in many different ways like we who walk our paths, but the true message of the quote means the same as the journey we all walk together.

True that if you ask for something it still may never come, but when you ask in the right way and with the faith of what you are asking, plus with a little work on your part, then that something will come to you at some point along the journey. Sometimes we ask for the most outrageous things than ask why we didn’t get what we asked? We then take to resentment of all that is around us cause we didn’t get what we asked, we become bitter of everything and then the journey seems as if it is against us. This journey just does not cater to one, there are many who walk their paths through this journey of life.

In order to find what you are looking for, first you need to seek. When we grow into this society, we first start from young, with no clue of what we want, or of what we want to be? We spend some time and some longer than others, to truly find what we are seeking and it all starts with, truly finding of who we truly are. A lot of times there will be things that come to us, or someone else that bring us great harm and pain, then through that pain we become lost along our paths, with the clouds of our judgments not allowing us to see clearly, we then hide deep within ourselves to keep from feeling anything, especially the love of Jesus deep within our hearts, we go on for the longest time trying to hide in plain sight, that we then start to lose a big part of who we are, which then extends to a society of many and then the society, thinks this is how it should be? Then one day maybe from a AH HA moment, or a sudden tragedy, the clouds lift and we get a glimpse of what could be if only we just be who we truly are, then the journey begins as we see clearly of all we are seeking.

Sometimes when we go to a friends house and knock on the door, there is no answer so we leave until the next time we knock, we don’t think twice when our friend is not home, we just think that okay……. he went out for a bit I will come back later. Now as we walk our paths through this journey of life and an opportunity knocks on our door, we go in the other direction, simply because we are afraid of the unknown, that opportunity only comes once and may never knock again? When opportunity comes knocking, you have to open the door to explore and see with clarity of what it is, but when you are hiding within and not seeing clearly through the clouds of your judgments, then you will never see any opportunity, let alone even hear the knock to open the door.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, the paths may be different, but the journey is all the same, we have all taken the difference of our paths to a new level within this society, to a level that we do not even help each other anymore, we are letting other things control us, instead of we taking full control of ourselves and doing what is right not just for ourselves, but for each other as well. We pass each other on the street and we can not even lift our heads out of our devices, to even say a simple hello anymore, we have become so into ourselves, that we can not see clearly enough through the clouds of our judgments, to even make good judgments of anything anymore. True there are clouds in the sky and these clouds can also bring foul weather and storms, it is also true that the clouds within us, that has us not seeing clearly along the journey, can also bring to us great storms, with great pain and harm as well, but as the clouds in the sky are out of our control, the clouds within us are very much within our control, we just have to get through the pain and hurt, truly heal ourselves, so we than can be of truly who we are, truly feel the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts, then spread this love with each other, so as we move forward on our paths, this journey can be full of peace and happiness for us all always.

 

” The clouds in the sky we may not control, the clouds within ourselves we can truly control to see more clearly”

” You need to seek to be able to find, but you need to see clearly to find of what you truly are looking for”

” We start this journey very young not knowing what we truly want, so we then search to truly find what we want to move forward of this journey”

” There are many doors throughout this journey, unless we knock we may never find the right door, let alone the right door to open keeping us moving forward”

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”

The true Righteous need no Fan fare

” 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”

 

The Dawn of a new day

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Just as the Sun wakes up each and every day and shines it’s light upon us all, we to wake up, to once again walk our paths throughout this journey of life. Sometimes the Sun might be engulfed in the clouds and not be as bright, but it does turn the night sky into daylight, so we can see clearly of our direction on our path. We to as we wake up, are within the clouds of our judgments, sometimes these judgments over whelm us and control who we truly are, through these clouds we then never truly wake up, as we simply wander along our path without truly walking with confidence. We are kind of like the Sun, as we both have clouds circling around us, the clouds around the Sun may look puffy like you can bounce upon them, but the really dark ones are full Evil as they wreak havoc down on us and never let the Sun shine to it’s full potential. The clouds within our judgments are very similar as they wreak havoc on each of us with their Evil and if we let them, will control who we truly are. These clouds within our judgments are very dark, so we can not see properly of what we are doing, or see the direction of where we are going, just like the Weatherman on TV gives us the forecast for the weather above us and the dark Evil clouds in the sky above, so we can prepare for what ever Evil gets dropped down on us, we can fix the clouds within our judgments, if we totally focus on what is the real issue, so we can be prepared for the Evil with our inner strength, then with confidence overcome these clouds and continue moving forward along our path of this journey through life.

The clouds in the sky we look up to, just like we look up to the Sun everyday. Sometimes there are no clouds with the Sun shining to its full potential, but when the clouds appear then they block the Sun, leaving it not so bright, with big blocks of shade all around us. When we are surrounded by the clouds of our judgments we to become blocked, from truly blossoming into our full potential, we also walk our paths in the shade of these clouds, which then has our self doubt get involved along our paths, with this self doubt and the shade of the clouds, we never really see the direction we are going, let alone trying to fix any issues that may be trying to control who we are, we also never see any of the warning signs that may be there for us to stop and take stock of where we are, or who we have become.

The Sun goes around us all the time along it’s orbit in Space, just as we walk our paths through this journey of life. The Sun also has its obstacles to get around, just as we do along our paths, but as the Sun shines at its brightest down upon us, shows us that the Sun has worked through the obstacles so it can continue with confidence on its orbit. Just as we have to with confidence, brush away these clouds of our judgments, so we can continue to move forward along our paths with strength, while we stay focused on who we truly are,  then fix what we need to fix, so we then can have a clear head, like the deep blue sky with the Sun and no clouds. When we stay true to who we are, we than can see clearly of all that is around us, we can see clearly of all the obstacles that we need to get around, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life peacefully and in happiness, everyday for as long as we are around walking this journey.

 

” The dawn of a new day is the wake up of the sun and the wake up of ourselves to continue walking this journey”

” The dark clouds are full of evil that bring havoc to us, the clear blue sky will give us a big smile with plenty of happiness”

” To see clearly without the clouds we need to truly know of who we are and see the warning signs before the issues bring us into someone we truly are not”

‘ the sun revolves around us along its orbit, just as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

 

The glitter of the morning Sun

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Within this fast paced Society we all live, we really don’t take the time to see everything of beauty that is around us. We will notice all the superficial beauty before we actually notice the true beauty around us, only because we have become so fake within this Society, we totally have lost sight of what is real and what is not, leaving us within a Society of Fiction, with no true facts to back up the true beauty around us.

This picture has so much true beauty within it, most within this Society would simply just pass by and not even think of stopping for a picture. The glitter of the Sun on to the waves of the water, with the rays of the light bouncing in and out of your eyes. The waves splashing onto the shore and then retreating back into the Lake for which they came, not only is it soothing to watch the waves hit the shore, but the sound they make, will put you into a trance, that will relax you into a welcome nap. Looking into the Horizon and seeing a mix of darkness and light in one sight, both the darkness and the light together with no issues, unlike within this Society and we all feeling threatened, simply because we are a different color than one another? Seeing the sky full of clouds that are all different to each of them  and when we look deeply into what we see, then the shapes of the clouds will then appear as actual things like, a person, an animal, or whatever we may see within them.

The Sun peeks through the holes of the morning sky, leaving us with a radiant and bright scene, as we look out into the lake before we have our morning coffee. When we slow down and truly look at what is around us, then we can actually see what we are really looking at. When we actually take the time out of our day, to notice all that we are missing daily, just maybe we all can learn to coexist like the Sun and the clouds, or maybe the darkness and the light like this picture shows us here.  We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we learn to coexist with each other, then the journey will be full of peace and happiness, but if we do nothing but attack one another, or label one another, than this journey becomes bitter full of darkness at all the turns throughout our paths.

 

” The glitter of the morning sun shines its beauty upon all that is below it”

” the shapes and sizes of the clouds, shows that there is diversity in not just we as Humans, but all that we see around us”

” The soothing sounds of the waves hitting the shore, will soothe you into the point of relaxation and wanting to take a nap”

 

Gaze into the rings of the Sunset

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The days bright sun falls from the sky at the end of the day in need of some rest,

Timing is everything when you see the sunset bring the the rings around it as it falls,

The glitter of the sun on the water reflects its beauty as it goes to bed for the night sky,

If you can catch the Sunset at the right time, you can also see  the many colors it brings,

But the timing of the colors are one in a million shot which keeps you intrigued as you watch,

The many parts of our journey has much beauty with the Sunset being one of the best,

We may be drawn to the beauty of the Sunset as it never calls,

The Sun rises in the morning with a bright hello and sets with a shy bye,

We walk a path through this journey of life with beauty everywhere on everything,

Just as the sun brings and ending and a beginning, an Eagle soars to it’s eggs to help them hatch,

 

 

The Sun sets making way to the stars and the Moon of the night sky,

The night sky when clear is as beautiful to see as the morning and evening Sun,

The night sky at the right time can be lit up with the lights of other planets,

Although always be watching for the big and the little dipper,

When the orbit is right you can also see the Space Station go flying by,

The Space Station has the Astronauts aboard collecting data for us below,

There is a lot of action in the night sky, only to be seen in complete darkness,

The Sun may look very cool as we watch it, but it is hot enough for us to fry,

We get away from the city lights to see the night sky as our journey becomes fun,

The night sky is full of interesting things including and occasional Comet,

Just as the Sun sets on the water so does the fish in the water like Flipper,

Gaze into the rings of the Sunset and see it sparkle on top of the water,

The journey of life is full of much beauty, you just have to truly look deeply into what you see, to truly see all of it’s beauty.

 

” The Sunset is an Astronomers delight, as they zoom in with the most powerful of telescopes”

” You may not see all the colors of the Sun when setting, simply because timing is everything as you sit and watch and don’t blink”

” You gaze into the sky as the Sun sets, just like you gaze into the night sky, to see the maze of stars within it”

 

The many faces of Change

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Change is a force that you just can’t avoid, although some may tend to try and act as if there is no such thing as Change, but in order to move forward and be better and stronger along this journey of life, there has to be change, or we would simply wander through this journey, without walking confidently in all we do along our paths.

The many faces of Change with all it’s different expressions, some change is very minimal, as other change will change who you truly are, whether good or bad. One day you can change the way you cut your hair, but on the other hand a change in lifestyle can and will always be the most difficult kind of change. Within this Society most will resist change, simply because they are afraid of the unknown factor it brings to us, we all fear the unknown, but when you move forward slowly and methodically along your path, accept the change that comes, we will find that we should never fear change, as change can help us grow stronger and be better as we walk our paths along this journey through life.

Within this Society we tend to think that we know more than each other, we are better than each other, but seriously we are all very similar to each other, just that because we are so unique to each other, change that is good for one, may not be the right change for another. The unknown part of change we should not fear, we should embrace it, learn from it and our past mistakes, so we then can move forward through change, stronger and better than before.

This picture shows a side of Change that we never look at, on this Bald face of this mountain, there was once a Face that was naturally cut into these rocks, to those that live in New England this face was known as ” The Old Man of the Mountain”. This old Man kind of owned this rock face for many many years, as he was cut into the rock face through erosion, well….. a few short years ago that same erosion has taken him from this rock face. This is Nature’s way of bringing Change to us and from this Change, some because they can’t deal with the change properly, are trying to develop a way to bring the face of the old Man back to the face of the rocks. The Old man came to us to show us the beauty of the rock face, now that he is gone, we need now to get used to the bald face rocks once again and see if erosion will bless us with another figure on the face of the rocks.

True when I travel through Franconia Notch, which was the home of the Old Man of the Mountain throughout my life, I am sorrowed that when I look up he is not there, but at the same time I can embrace the change and see the true beauty on the face of these rocks. True the rocks may look bare now without the Old man, but it is exciting to look deeply on to these rocks every time I go up that way, to see if maybe there is another formation being formed by nature, for us all to relish once again as we travel through Franconia Notch.

Change is a force that affects us all, the many faces of Change may look different to us and make us fear the force of Change, but if we embrace the Change, learn from it and our past mistakes, we then can move forward through Change and be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

‘ The Faces of Change are not there to scare us, they only simply are there to guide us to prosperity to be better and stronger”

” The Old Man of the mountains has made us look up for many years, now that he is gone, let’s look up and see the real true beauty of the mountains of Franconia Notch”

” Fear not the unknown part of change, conquer your fear so change can make you better and stronger”

 

The White Mountain Region of New Hampshire

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This is one of the most beautiful notches within the White mountain Region, known as Franconia Notch with some of the best hikes for the adventurous types. Lafayette, Liberty, little Haystack, the Flume, just some of the peaks within this Notch and when high above the tree’s and along the ridge of these mountains, the view will take your breathe away. Looking across to the other mountain which would be to my right as I took this picture, is Cannon mountain, lively with skiing in the winter and mostly known for the old Man of the mountain throughout my lifetime, til a few short years ago and erosion has brought him to his demise,   one of the most viewed landmarks throughout all of New England, he brought many lookers to this beautiful Notch. Now unless you are a Hiker and are hiking this beautiful Notch, the traffic just drives by without really looking deeply into what they see.

Just to the right of center in this picture within this large rock face you see, just below the top, there is a huge rock, visible to those who walk along the ridge above the tree’s, this rock is hanging almost like by a thread and it has been like this as long as I can remember, well……. if this rock someday falls as the face of the Old man of the mountain did, it would go down it’s peak, across the road below and up Cannon mountain and whatever is in its way, it will simply run it over as it is that big.  Hiking through this Notch and accomplishing each Summit, there is no better feeling in the World, especially hiking up mount Lafayette, i can remember about five false summits, every time I thought the summit was in sight and when I got to that location, there was another to reach, but even through all that the view from the summit was better than the word of ” awesome”, if you reached the summit and it was a beautiful sunny day with blue clear skies, you can see as far as your eyes will let you. There is another one of those AMC huts for the weary Hiker to rest and get a good meal, this is the Green leaf hut and when you get there, get settled in and go outside to sit on a rock, look at the scene before you, there is no better way to unwind from a days hike, let alone to clear your mind from being weary, to totally relaxed before you know it, again this hut is above the line of tree’s and you can see clearly in all directions, or whatever window you may look out from inside the hut.

Hiking is a good way to clear your mind, from the everyday crap that fills it, from wherever you may live. It is also good exercise that will keep you fit if you do a lot more than one hike a year? Hiking and meditation go hand in hand, as the hike to the summit may be strenuous and weary, but when you reach the summit, now it is time to relax and clear the mind, as meditation will do. When you sit on top of any summit, you gaze deeply into the horizon, while you breathe in and breathe out properly, which then relaxes all your muscles within your body, then you feel a sense of calm over whelm your body, this calmness helps fix yourself from whatever that is troubling you, it makes these troubles seem like they are melting away, then as we start the journey back down the mountain and back to the real World below, it is our memory of this sense of calmness, that helps us keep fixing ourselves from all our troubles, as we then get back to walking our paths of this journey through life, with the rest of Mankind around us.

 

” Franconis Notch to some may be a road surrounded by mountains, but to others it is a sanctuary away from reality to unwind and relax, while we get mesmerized by its beauty”

” Old Man of the Mountain was a popular man for a long time, but like anything else change comes even when you least expect it”

” Once you go to the White mountains  for the first time, you keep going back to truly look deeply into what you see”

” When you look deeply into what you see, you then see truly of all the beauty that is around you”

 

The Grand Mount Washington Hotel

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The Mount Washington hotel has a deep history to it and as long as it has been there, I am sure a few good haunting stories to go along with it. Every time I go by this Hotel I am inclined to stop and take in the beauty all around it, the mountain range in the back drop of the hotel I have hike many times, the range is known as the Presidential Range. Just to the left of the Hotel and socked within the clouds is Mount Washington, at an elevation of 6,288 feet, it is the tallest peak Northeast of the Mississippi River, a mountain I have hiked many times, been up the auto road a couple times, but have never been up the Cog Railway, as…okay…… Maybe a bit nervous to travel up a mountain, that I have no control of how it gets to the top and back to the bottom of the peak, but I would rather hike the mountain, so I can take in all the true beauty that is around me. When hiking to the top of this mountain on this side, you go past one of the many Huts that are spaced out within a days hike of each other, this hut you pass is known as the Lake of the clouds hut, yes there are two small lakes there, one used strictly for drinking and the other for jumping in to cool off after a long days hike. This hut is wide open with no tree’s around, making for an adventure in itself, when there is a passing thunder storm that has decided to take the same path as you along the trail. I can also say truthfully that I have hiked part of the Appalachian trail and this Presidential range is part of that trail as well, but hopefully one day I will be able to hike the entire Appalachian trail and be part of the history of that trail, like so many have tried and only a few actually have hiked the entire trail.

The other reason why I stop to look at this Hotel and the beautiful backdrop behind it is, it reminds me of the famous Stephen King and his book ” the Shining”, the only difference is the Hotel in the book is surrounded by the awesome Colorado Rockies, of which those mountains are much bigger, making the hiking adventure more rigorous, harder on the feet, but yet more spectacular on the eyes. Both Hotels are Grand in their own way and I am sure each has their stories that either differ or are similar to each other,   but unlike the Hotel in the book, the Mount Washington Hotel stays open in the winter, which brings a whole different clientele within the walls of the Hotel. The Hotel in the book closes for the winter, as it’s private setting  makes it difficult to get to, in a harsh winter storm. Which is why there is a caretaker that stays there alone through the winter months and towards the end of their time there, the quietness and the “magic” of the Hotel, starts to play with the mind of the caretaker, making for a creepy read, or a movie if you have seen the movie instead? Just like the Hotel in the “shining”, I am sure the Mountain Washington has it’s own story to tell, just that it hasn’t spoken like the Hotel in the book.

I can remember hiking the Presidential range in the White Mountains of New Hampshire as a young kid and staying in the huts up above tree line, these huts had their crews that worked up there feeding and taking care of the weary Hiker, at night before we would turn in for the night, these crew members would embark in some Ghost stories for us, they would use other huts or trails we have yet to embark on, as the basis of their stories, now whether these stories were actually true or made up well…… that was up to the ones that were listening and hanging on their every word. Now some of these stories actually were told so well, it was very hard to not believe, but then again with so many Hiker’s that have perished along these trails, maybe there actually were some Ghosts still walking these trails, to try to finish what they set out to do? Hiking these trails is so quiet and peaceful, it can play with your mind and have you hear things that is not really there, only because it is so quiet with a feeling of loneliness, I can only imagine if I were to hike the entire Appalachian Trail, from Springer mountain Georgia, to Mount Katahdin in Maine and with the quietness and the peacefulness that will surround you along the way, just how much will my own mind want to play tricks on me as well? But with that said, it is still a trail for which I would love to walk, as the ones that have started and finished this trail, it has changed them for the better, with a big feeling of accomplishment, that will never leave them, nor will anyone ever take it from them as well.

The Mount Washington Hotel nestled within the mountains and the clouds of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, a Hotel full of grandeur and spaciousness, that also has it’s own story to tell and we simply have to listen, so we can understand better of the beauty within and around it. Don’t just stay at the Hotel, just to say you have stayed there, really breathe in the atmosphere around you, look deeply into what you see, explore all that is around you and really listen to what the Hotel tells you, as old as it is, i am sure there are some squeakiness  to it and through the squeakiness, could be the Ghost of the Hotel, trying to tell you the true story of where you are staying, who knows the bed that you are sleeping on, or the room you are staying in, could of been used by one of our Fore Fathers, that had a hand in building this great country of America? Which would make the voice or voices you hear very informative with a history lesson, of the Grandest Hotel that you may ever stay within.

” The mount Washington hotel is a very old hotel full of history with spectacular views, to stay here is more than just sleeping in a bed”

” The White Mountains of New Hampshire are great to look at from all angles, but to hike within them, now you can actually feel the heart beat of each mountain”

In lieu of the massacre of the Police Officers in Dallas, Texas. We are a Country scorned or even greater, we are a Society scorned and in need of a major fix, so we can end all this ugliness that is around us. Times like this we need to turn to our Leader’s to lead us, but when those leaders fail us like they have many times in the past, it is time for new Leadership, that will have no issue with fixing what is wrong, so we all can get back to walking our paths in peace, along this journey through life.

We all have our agendas along this journey, but when the Leaders put their agendas ahead of those that put them into office, then it will all catch up sooner or later and right now it has caught up, with our leaders not knowing which way to turn, so they then proceed to do nothing, cause it is the easy way out and they then duck and hide to try to avoid all the ugliness that surrounds us now.

The only way to address all the ugliness around us, is to identify who or what is causing this ugliness. All the facts are not out yet with the Dallas shooting tragedy, but some of what I heard is, the shooter was in the U. S. Military at one point, which would explain the Sniper ability he has? Maybe some PTSD and the fact that the shooter snapped for some reason or another? We need to first identify the problem and not politicize, like our leaders are doing now. ” The problem is not the guns, the problem lies with the Individual that is pulling the trigger of the gun”. Maybe we should stop cutting the Mental Health field, so we can help those who are in dire need, when someone is in the Mental health facility, they then can get the right Meds at the times put in place for them. when you kick these Individuals to the street, not only do they not get the proper meds, they also don’t take them at all and this now becomes a bigger problem than it really needs to be. I am not saying that all who take meds are crazy, only those who need a med that will control their Psychological side, so they then can control better of their actions.

I have a question for you, If I were to put a gun on the table with a lot of people around and no one touches that gun, will that gun fire and kill someone at the gathering? If you said no, why then do our Leaders think that more gun control, will stop the Mentally Deranged   from killing innocent men and woman around us? these Mentally Deranged weren’t always this way, maybe at one point they were very successful with no issues, than one day they snapped, bought a gun, cause they had no priors that would stop them or flag a background check, now that they have a gun and in their unstable state of mind, now you have an ingredient, to a recipe that will create a tragedy, wherever the main course may be?

God did not create Mankind to do these ugly acts on one another, God created us to coincide with each other, share our uniqueness with each other, as well as share our love that is within all our hearts with each other. We the people of this Society are the ones at fault of this ugliness that is around us, simply because we have become so lazy to put in the work, that we have become lost within the clouds of our judgments,  we have become so lost of the true reality, that we are now living within a fantasy that is within our heads. To truly fix what is wrong with Society, we first need to do some sole searching, fix our own faults, so we then can help others fix themselves, which will then help society grow as it should, stronger and better. We need now more than ever to reach deep within our soles, truly get in touch with our true Empathy within us, so we than can release our love of ourselves with each other, then and only then can we get back to walking our paths in peace and happiness, along this journey through life.

” maybe instead of more gun control, there should be more educational classes on the use and storage of a gun”
