Just go for a walk they said………

Just a simple little walk within nature and in the mountains can result in a strenuous hike with the grandest of views as your reward, for stepping out of your comfort zone to experience such great beauty. The breathtaking views from the summit after a grueling days hike, that’s what hiking is all about, in some cases after a long day on the trail, there are huts to get a good meal, rest and some good sleep, for the next day on the trail. These huts within the mountains have great hospitality, as well as some of the best food you can get deep within the middle of the wilderness, as it hits the spot of all the weary Hikers that come across these huts no matter of where they are.

As I sit atop Cannon mountain by way of the Kinsman trail/lonesome lake trail, this range I look upon is Franconia ridge trail and one of the best ridges that the white mountains of New Hampshire have. There is a lot of great hiking in the white mountains, with a lot of great views as well, but the best part of the hiking is, being one with nature, to heal the mind, body, and soul from all the corruption, chaos, ugliness and the hatred that is all around us within the society of today.

Never be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, step outside within mother nature to experience all the true beauty all around you. There is so much more to this journey through life and unless you wander into places that may have never been touched by man, then you truly will never experience the beauty known to man as God’s country.

You need not go climb a mountain to experience the beauty of mother nature, you can also step outside onto a nature trail, like maybe a trail around a lake, these kinds of trails will have you outside and seeing things you normally would never see, unless you step outside your comfort zone to see them. It is okay to explore and not only see new things but learn new things as well, which will broaden your horizons. as you then heal from all that may bring you much pain and hurt.

We all get so stuck within our comfortable ruts to the point we never step outside, as we fear more that the pain and hurt will overwhelm us. A comfortable rut is that place we put ourselves to keep from more pain and hurt, that place where we suppress deep within our true selves, instead of just being true to ourselves, so we than can heal deeply of our pain, to relieve our mind, body, and souls. The problem within this world of social media is, we are not that social with each other, only we hide behind our technology devices, without any face to face interactions, then we stew within our comfortable ruts, instead of stepping out within mother nature to heal ourselves properly. We all need that downtime, that time to defuse and ease ourselves from the broken society out there, the human body wasn’t made to keep up the mach speed pace, we were also not made to hide behind our technology devices, as we need to be truly social with face to face interactions, so we then can be true to who we are, showing our love of each other always, being kind to one another with no hatred in our sights for us to trip over.

 

 

” Just go for a walk to defuse, relax and learn new things within the beauty of mother nature”

” Most of the time the hard work is well worth it when the reward is even greater”

” We become encompassed in our comfortable ruts to keep from further pain or harm”

” Step outside of our comfort zones to explore learn new things and grow healthier with more happiness along this journey of life”

To look deeply into what you see, with the right focus

Unfortunately within this society we do not focus on the right things, to truly see the reality of what is around us. “If life was like a deck of cards, we all today are clearly lost within the shuffle of the deck”. Take this picture for instance, most would just float on by without seeing the coolness or the, intrigue part of what we see. There is so much we can learn and see when we get out and explore within nature, the problem we all have is, we are all lost within the shuffle, that we clearly can not see what is around us, which has us all missing the important parts, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look no further than the Individuals for who we vote into office, that are suppose to come together to lead us, to make all our lives better, as these Individuals are clearly lost within the shuffle of the cards of life, which has them in the wrong section of this journey and most dangerous, the section of denial which they clearly can not see any true reality that is around them. If we all just take a step back, look deeper into what we see, then we can stop the shuffle of the deck, get back to true reality and truly see all that is around us, as we then see all the true beauty as well.

This picture is so cool on so many levels, as you look at what is in front of you, you can see all that is within nature, from the erosions, to the new life. The tree may look as if it is growing out of the rock? But when you look deeper, you clearly can see that, through the erosion of the river at it’s highest point, has the roots of the tree becoming exposed to the light of day. Everything in life is subject to erosion over time, even we as Humans erode over time, as when we reach our Golden years, not only does our bodies change, but our minds erode as we call this ” Alzheimer’s, but our pride has us not excepting as we should. With all that is eroding in nature, there is even more new life that comes in, which is also known as the ” cycle of life”. The Cycle of life is a big part of the journey we all walk, just that we take too much for granted everything within the journey, we clearly do not see the cycle. Those within the walls of Washington DC talk so much on global warming or climate change, that they have forgotten, a big part of what is within the life cycle, true we the people with our bad habits and decisions, can and will be a part of the life cycle, but the cycle of life is something that is going to happen no matter what, this is just a part of this journey through life that we need to understand better, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, better and stronger moving forward, without being lost within the shuffle of the deck.

Getting lost within the shuffle of the deck is, kind of like being lost within a big city and never going outside of the city. You protect yourself from what is around you in the city, that you then don’t look at the bigger picture around you, you don’t get out and explore anything that is outside of your comfort zone, which then has you not truly seeing any true reality that is around you. This is kind of like being in denial, which has you making up your own reality, instead of living within true reality, yes there is that element of danger when we get out and explore within nature, it takes us away from our comfort zone, but if we never get out and explore, we will never truly understand what is around us, nor will we ever truly understand the true reality of this journey through life, as we walk our paths within our comfort zones, protecting us from what is around us and losing touch with the ” cycles of life”.

” To look deeper into what is around you, you first have to refocus and get out and explore new things”

” This journey of life is like a deck of cards, which we all get lost within the shuffle”

” Denial keeps us in our comfort zone, which then has us making up our own reality”

” The life cycle of this journey through life is something we all need to understand better, to move forward better and stronger”

Trekking through the Wilderness and exploring what we normally don’t see

          Throughout our Society of today and as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all get caught up in the everyday living, the going to work to earn money needed, in order to provide for ourselves and our families, we also get caught into our comfort zones to try to stay safe, without any unnecessary harm coming to us. When we are in these comfort zones we don’t look at what is all around us, as we only see what we want to see, without exploring and learning more so we can be better and stronger along this journey through life.

Trekking through the Wilderness will get us outdoors to explore and see what is around us within places we normally wouldn’t go, We totally see that there is a beautiful side to our journey through life, instead of the grind of work to make ends meet, we also find it relaxing to get outside and see the true beauty of the Wilderness and all the different kinds of animal life, as well as all the different varieties of plant life, that we don’t see within the thickly settled civilization in which we live. The great outdoors is also a way for us to take a deep breathe of the clean fresh air, without all the smog of the city life in our everyday lives,

We throughout Mankind are explorers and exploring is what we have done through many years from the start of our existence, without the exploring than our lives become dull and ordinary, we don’t learn and understand new things, so we can become better and stronger along our paths of our journey through life. We don’t have to go hike up any big mountains, just a simple nature trek along some little trail that we would never of even known it was there, unless we go explore it. When we trek through the Wilderness not only does it relax and let us breathe in clean fresh air, it also gets us in touch with our other senses that we forget we have, living within our comfort zones of our everyday living. Some may not like the idea of doing something new and different but this is how we grow in our lives, this is how we better understand everything around us and this is how we learn of everything around us.

A trail like this one in the picture you can see has a dense amount of plant life, some of these plants we never see in our everyday lives, which makes it fun to learn of them so we can have fun along this trail, this trail will also hold something different at every turn along our way through it, just as our path we take through this journey of life. While we walk along this trail the other sense we take for granted, is our keen sense of hearing, as the quietness of the trail, has us hear everything that is around us, like the beautiful sound of the Birds chirping and singing through their lives, as they to walk or fly their paths along their journey through life. There are many paths through the journey of life and for us the fun part is exploring them, so we can learn to be better and stronger, while we step outside our comfort zones, to truly be who we really are and that is an explorer, like the many before us throughout mankind.

” To step outside our comfort zone may be hard for some to do, but when we do it we find that there is a lot more beauty around us, than we thought there ever was”

” In the beginning of Mankind we were all explorers, we still are just that we have gotten away from it and stopped  learning of whats around us, so we can truly be who we are”

” Comfort zones keep us from any harm that may come to us, but we do need to step outside them to be better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey through life and truly be who we are”

The Road less traveled

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The road less traveled is only that way cause we don’t travel that road,

in life we get caught up in the have to be there now mentality,

we get stuck in the comfortable daily and safe routine,

we like familiarity and what others are doing for success on their path,

we are afraid to venture of the beaten path where we know we are safe,

we travel roads we know so we avoid the unknown and all it’s activity,

we get caught a lot going with the flow of others instead of starting fresh and clean,

we are afraid to get dirty on the road less traveled then having to take a bath,

when we stay in our comfort zone then we don’t worry of becoming chafed,

mostly we get lazy and stay the road most traveled cause we don’t know how to change the code.

We are all born into this World and all of us have started our paths of our Journey on an unknown road, as we grow within our families and in our communities, we learn of where our comfort and safe zones are, then as we grow further we will have some kind of life event happen, it is part of life and what makes us who we are, the problem lies within these events, as some are extremely difficult to overcome and others can be very easy, these events can change who we are and control our whole being if we let them, these events will turn us into something we are not and make it hard to do anything that is unknown to us, so we then stay on the road we know to be comfortable and safe.

What we don’t realize is, as we stay on the road most traveled, we are not living up to our potential and exploring every option that may cross our paths within life, we get stuck in our comfort zone which protects us from any further pain and harm that may come to us, by going down the road less traveled, we not only will have turns and bumps like the other road, we will also learn further of our potential and help us widen our comfort zone, to make us even more safe than our narrow zone we have lived with.

God created all Mankind, not for us to become someone we are not, or not to explore and become better and stronger from society to society, he put these events in place as a test, not for us us to be stuck on our path along our journey, but to constantly learn to be better and stronger, also not for us to live in solitude, but to be free to live and coincide with each other, so we all can help each other be better and stronger, so all of society can be free to explore all the roads less traveled, there is no road along our journey, that will be without twists and turns, we just have to learn to adjust, better understand these events, so the road less traveled will then be as beautiful as all the other roads we travel everyday.

” sometimes in life the road less traveled, is just as beautiful as the road mostly traveled”

” all roads will have twists and turns, we have to adjust to widen our comfort zone”
