As we wake at the crack of dawn and get ready for what lies ahead in the days journey, we first take solace, listen and look at what is around us. We then put a couple logs on the hot coals from last nights campfire, so we can put on some coffee and make some breakfast to fuel our inner tanks for the coming journey. It’s a beautiful morning with the morning sun reflecting off the branches and landing in spots along the Earths floor, as I put the pot of water on the fire to heat up for coffee, I suddenly hear some crackling of branches in the distance from where I am, Hmm!!! What could it be as I thought to myself? I stepped away from the immediate area of the campsite and became one with the surroundings around me, as I waited for whatever was there to show their head, I continued to hear the crackling of the branches getting closer and as they got closer I knew whatever it was was bigger than a little Critter like a Chipmunk. I waited still to see what was out there and as I waited i could see the steam coming from the pot of water on the fire, signaling that the water was ready for the coffee, but I didn’t want to give away my location to what was there and stayed put for now. What seemed like eternity of a wait, was in reality about thirty minutes of waiting and then out of the brush comes this thin legged animal, maybe about 150 to 200 pounds, and had its head down sniffing all in its path, it was a Deer, a female Doe to be exact, what a beautiful site and to think she didn’t know I was there, as she hadn’t sniffed my scent cause the breeze was going in the other direction, so I sat there and watched as the Doe did its thing before it headed back into the thick brush of the Wilderness it came from. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful way to start the day, as you get ready to take on the days journey yourself.
We all walk our paths along this journey of life, true there are some things that will derail us along our paths, but there are many more beautiful things that will have us in awe as we walk these paths of this journey. unfortunately when we get derailed along our paths, we lose sight of what is in front of us and we don’t look deeply into what we see. Instead we wander out of focus until we address what we need to, so we then can continue forward and truly look deeply into all that we see.
You don’t have to be within the Wilderness to see any beauty at all, you simply have to look deeply into what you see, so you than can see beauty, no matter where you are, or whatever you are doing. True beauty is all around us everywhere, but unfortunately through all the ugliness and we ourselves not looking deeply into what we see from the parts of the path that derailed us, we never give ourselves a chance to see this beauty and move forward blindly, with no true direction of where we are going.
We trek through the Wilderness to see all of Natures beauty, but everything that is around us, is the creation of God and he created all this, so we all can see true beauty everyday, as we walk our paths along this journey through life. This ugliness we see today is the creation of we the people of this Society and we the people can stop this ugliness, just by stepping back, viewing all that is around us and instead of just glancing at what is around us, look deeply into what we see, fix what we need to fix, so we to like the Deer can continue along the path, through this journey of life.
” Beauty is everywhere around us, we simply have to look deeply into what we see”
” Waking at the crack of dawn to some is unthinkable, but it is where we focus on the true beauty of what is around us”
” When we don’t fix what we need to fix, we then get derailed along our paths we walk, which then creates all the ugliness we see around us”
