The 2015 Boston Bruins

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA          The Boston Bruins are a hockey team within the National Hockey League (NHL), they are also my favorite sports team and always have been throughout my life. Win, lose or draw, I will always bleed the black and gold, the greatest hockey talent ever to lace up the skates played for these Bruins and brought two Stanley cups to the city of Boston, his name is Bobby Orr and I idolized him as I played the game growing up. I have been fortunate enough to witness these Bruins going to five Stanley cup final, winning three and losing two. This team has always been competitive each season, with only a few seasons falling short of expectations, the thing most about this team is, throughout the years they have made the playoffs with lesser named players than other teams, could the Ownership maybe change their philosophy of this team a bit and actually spend for the bigger named talent of the league, possibly? But throughout my time as a true Boston Bruins fan, it surely looks like they are more about putting the profits in their pockets, instead of rewarding the true fans with some great talent, for more chances of bringing Lord Stanley back to Boston, where it belongs.

With that said……. My thoughts of Claude Julien is, he is a great coach with a great system of play, with his system he needs all the players on the roster to buy into the the system and execute the system perfectly and in 2011 they all bought in with the result being, they brought Lord Stanley back to the city of Boston where it truly belongs. After winning the Stanley cup (which is hardest trophy to win in all sports), the team got into salary cap issues and had to let go some of the key players that brought the identity to the team, with the result since has been a team in need of an identity. Identity in hockey goes way beyond the talent of the players and has everything to do with, group of players bonding together as one, taking their Individual talents, putting them together and making the entire team stronger, which makes them a difficult team to play against, for any team that they may face. When the entire roster of players bond together and play for each other, the result then becomes they win more than they lose, in 1970, 1972 and 2011 these Bruins showed just what bonding together means and what being a team family really means, these players from these Championship teams were a family on and off the ice, which they had each others backs and played hard for each other each and every game. In 2011 and with the system of Claude in place, then with all the players bonding together as a family and buying into the system, is the biggest reason why they brought Lord Stanley back to the city of Boston and why each and every game of that season they where a hard win for any team that they had faced. The Identity of the team in 2011 was that of, making the other team work that much harder to beat you, while the team/family of the Boston Bruins executed the system of Claude perfectly and piling up win after win. This team of 2015 definitely needs all these young players to buy into the system of Claude and bond together as one, so they to can create this Identity that the past teams of the Bruins have had, as well as the success they have had also, I will always bleed the black and gold of the Boston Bruins and do hope these Bruins can bond together as one, bringing Lord Stanley back to the city of Boston, where the true home of this most prestigious trophy truly is.

” The Identity of any team, starts with all the players of that team bonding together and bringing all their Individual talents together, making them a hard team for any other team to play against”

” when a sports team bonds together they become a family on and off the field/ice”

” Championships don’t always have to be won with the best of talent, they can also be won with a team who has the strongest Identity and who bonds together stronger than the opponent”

The Bartering way is a way to help each other

           Back in the day before America was even named “America”, You had the Natives that lived here and the ones that came here to start a new. This was a time before they even knew what the word Corporation was or meant. Back within this time they didn’t know what a Society was and had no idea of what luxury was, these people back then truly worked for everything they had, with no clue of what the green paper we have today was. When people back then needed help to cultivate their crops, or maybe build a shack in which to have a roof over their heads, they sought out the ones around them and instead of transferring money from one hand to another, they used this Barter method, which quite simply is you help me now and I will help you at a later time, whenever you need.

This way of the Barter method truly worked, but what it did even more was, we communicated with each other, helped each other and knew each other like a family knows each other. Just look across the street and asked yourself, do I truly know who is that living across from me? This is the World and Society we live today, this has become our reality today and have no clue what this word Barter means, You wonder why we have all this ugliness around us today, all the hatred and the Terrorist groups trying to end all that don’t side with their ways and views, then you add in the Corporate way of life which has nothing but greed in the for front of everything they do, now you have a Society that knows nothing of each other, a Society that steps on each other instead of helping each other, plus a Society that can’t communicate properly with each other anymore.

When God created Mankind this was not the vision he had from his creation, these problems within our Society are not his fault and lie solely on us, the people within this Society. We are our own worst enemies, simply because when we try to change what is around us, we do so without understanding what true change is, then change for all the wrong reasons, which starts the process of all the ugliness we see around us today. When we do not help and communicate properly with each other, this is where the distrust of each other begins and without trust, we lose sight of who we really are.

The system of the Barter is what truly made America into the strong Country that it became. Not just of building up this once uncharted land, but it is what made all of us within Mankind stronger and better as we walked our paths through this journey of life. We can go back to this way of living with the Barter way of life, just that we all have to come together as one, stop the stepping of all over each other just for personal gain and simply trust each other once again, yes I said trust and we can trust each other, when we communicate properly and help each other to move forward stronger and better than those that walked their journey’s before us.

” The Barter way of life might of been a lot of work, but the rewards from the work out weighed anything from our Society of today”

” You need no money to Barter with another person, as this will help us all help each other and communicate better with each other as well”

” the Barter method was the strong foundation that built America, getting away from it for greed, has cracked the foundation which now needs some repair”

That was a Whale of a “tale”………….

         This journey of life for so many of us, is such a collector of many Tale’s and a lot of them over the years, get added on to little by little. Just like when a Fisherman catches a fish out at Sea, then when he returns to port the same fish he caught is a bit bigger, then as the story gets told time and time again it becomes even bigger, than the actual fish that was caught.

We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, we experience many things along the way, with these experiences comes many tales that we tell, most being true, some being made up, they usually start out in fact, then over time they go from truth to fiction, with what used to be a small story, to something full of drama, bigger than it once was, so we all can seem to each other bigger than we really are. This has been going on since before I can remember and throughout this drama ridden Society, it goes on further everywhere you turn.

We are all guilty of painting this picture of ourselves towards others, much brighter than the actual colors themselves, when we do this we don’t realize that we are becoming some one we truly are not, then find out that we can’t even live up to our own expectations. As we struggle to live up to our own expectations, we then become lost within the clouds of our judgements and everything in front of us becomes out of focus, when we make mistakes we then don’t own up to them and try to sweep them under the rug, before anybody notices them. While we struggle with our own expectations and others around us are living up to theirs, we then try to bring them down, to keep them from moving forward further than ourselves and left behind. We spread false rumors just to make it seems like others around us are doing it wrong and we ourselves are right in all we do? You see this a lot in sports also, when one team is always winning and the teams can’t beat them, they then spread false rumors, just to make it like they are cheating the system within that sport. If we only walked our paths along this journey of life in peace, without stretching the facts out to be bigger than they are, just maybe we all could be much happier and enjoy this journey everyday we wake up, so we all can be better and stronger moving forward together, instead of being against each other, causing great friction between us.

” We all have struggles in life, it is how we deal with them that keeps us moving forward in life”

” A tall tale starts out small, then over time becomes much bigger than it really is”

Thye sound of Music

sheryl_crow

There are many different sounds that come from whatever Instrument you may play,

music will have you feel many feelings and emotions and bring many moods,

the music we listen has many different lyrics that inspire and and calm our souls,

the many versions of music played daily no matter where you are on your journey,

the song writer’s take ordinary words and magically turn to the beauty of music,

words are just words til we create the right words to inspire and heal,

we listen to our music just like we sit to eat our foods,

we use music as our crutch just like a fence is held up with poles,

music helps us move forward without digging a hole to bury,

we have much music to choose whether modern or rustic,

some may listen to music just for spite others listen and feel,

we get molded with our choice of music just like an artist molds his clay.

Country, jazz, classical, gospel, these are kinds of music that inspire and soothe. Some of these have words that have been created and set to lyrics, while other kinds are simply just lyrics that soothe and calm us into softness. There are other types of music like rap and punk rock, that do nothing but create chaos or bring ugliness along our paths of our journey through life, the words of these kinds of music just get thrown together, without any kind of creativity involved. Music when created the right way, will make us cry real tears and help us smile with great happiness, when music is just words thrown together, brings us much anger and breeds much hatred throughout all our paths of our journey.

When we are troubled we use music to lift us up and inspire to move forward on our paths, this is the true beauty of what the creativity of words can do, The other beauty that music helps us with is, helping us get in touch with our true empathy, which is a feeling we all have deep within our souls, unfortunately there are things along our journey’s that forces us to suppress this empathy deeper within us, to the point we don’t feel it anymore, it is always there just that we bury it so the harm won’t hurt us anymore. Just as we all walk our own paths along this journey of life, we all listen to music, just that our taste in music, varies from one Individual to another.

” the right music will inspire and soothe, the wrong music breeds hatred and anger”

” music is a creativity of words, just like the books we read, except the words of music are set to lyrics”

” there are many types of music, just like our paths we walk along this journey through life”

The Hardest of Hearts……….

1398913762364

I chose this picture once again cause it is of young eight year old Martin Richard, a young boy who was tragically taken from us, by two Individuals with the hardest of hearts. This  young boy was an innocent Victim of a senseless tragedy and this sign he holds here, is a symbol of what might of come from this young boy.

We all grow from a young age and as a child we are all precious in our own ways. When we are little we have no hate of anything and everything us around is an equal, we play with other children within our communities and welcome everybody no matter what their background, skin color, or where they are from. Our children are true gifts from God to us and we all can learn from these children, as much as we teach them to grow within Society.

With all this hate and ugliness around us today ( which the Media like to make bigger than it really is) and the fact that we as a child have none of this, shows that we as people learn and create this hate and ugliness from somewhere as our hearts become hardened and cold. Children are a sponge and soak up everything around them as they grow into Society, as innocent as a child is, they become a product of what is around them and when they are raised with hate of everything around them, they then get filled with it and the hardened heart syndrome then begins, with the coldness yet to come.

Children are a product of the love between a loving Man and a Woman, that are showing their love of one another to all that is around them. Children are not something that helps you get more free money from the Government, so you don’t have to go out and earn a living. When you raise a precious child for all the wrong reasons, this is where all the hatred is then learned from the child and starts the hardening and coldness of the heart. All this hatred, racism and ugliness is learned from somewhere, it is not in any way a part of us, as God did not create Mankind to be this way.

“When God created Mankind he did so out of love and filled our hearts with the warmth of this love, everything else is learned as we grow within Society. Our hearts only become hardened and cold, when we don’t acknowledge the love of God within our hearts”.

We as children learn everything that is around us at a young age, if that is a world of hate, then this is what we learn and take with us as we grow into Society. When we suffer through some Life events as a child and we think we have no where to turn, then these events teaches us to be hateful of everything around, as we try to keep ourselves safe from further events that may cross our paths. Quite simply we as children become a product of what is around us and when that is a world of hate, then it snow balls as these children are grown up into Society with the Hardest of Hearts, as there heart is full of coldness, instead of the warmth of God’s love. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all learn from a young age how to walk these paths, so we can try to walk these journey’s as safely as we think safe is, what we need to do more of is, trust in God and Jesus more, as their love for us never leaves us, trust, have faith and forgive ourselves, so we then can do the same of each other, so our hearts will be filled with the warmth of true love and not hardened with the coldest of hearts, which does nothing but spread more hatred and ugliness around us further.

” A cold and hardened heart is learned from a young age, the warmth of God’s love is always within our hearts, all we need to do is accept and acknowledge it”

” A Child is precious and pure full of love of everything around them, the hate and ugliness is learned from what is around them as they grow into Society”

” When a heart becomes hardened and cold, it is because of what is around it, as we grow from a young age it forces us to become someone for which we truly are not”

” God’s love never fails us, it is us that fails ourselves”

In a Society we come together to be stronger and better…

                  “A Society is a group of Individuals that have come together as one, so we all can walk our paths along this journey of life in peace, while becoming stronger and better, for whatever may cross our paths”.

Today within the United States our highest court just ruled saying that, it is okay for those of the same sex to marry and become one, so they can be treated equally as a marriage between a man and a woman? will they truly be considered equal in the eyes of God? Or is this their way of pushing their views on the rest of us?

“For a Society to truly work as it should, we all need to be on the same page, not a few trying to push their views on the rest of us”.

When God created Mankind, he did so with creating a Man and a Woman to coincide with each other, the man and the woman come together as one, to love and cherish one another, so our Society can grow while we show this love to each other, to become stronger and better moving forward. God didn’t create a man and a woman for us to become divided and for some to push their views on the others.

Now what some may do behind closed doors, is their own thing and should never be pushed on others that want nothing to do with it. I understand we are an open Society, but what you do behind those close doors, is not the open that was meant to be of a Society. There are some that we never hear from that live their lives their own way, to which helps our society coincide together, but within this open Society you will always have a few, that stop at nothing, just to push their ways and views on the rest of us within the Society, which does nothing but divide our Society even further.

We all walk a path along this journey of life, when we push our ways and views on each other, makes our paths become full of ups and downs, to which the journey gets a bit rougher than it really has to be, I understand that some may feel they are different than others, but is this in the eyes of God, a good enough reason to disrupt what a Society is suppose to be? God created all Mankind to be unique to each other, he did not vision that we would take it to this level, instead of our highest court or our Government leaders working on topics like this, just maybe they could actually work on more important issues, that would help grow a Society to be better and stronger for all. The issue of same sex marriage, does nothing but truly take away the sanctity of the marriage between a man and a woman. Let’s not forget that a Society is all of us within Mankind, not just a few that push their views on others, when we all walk our paths along this journey of life peacefully, we all can grow within Society to be stronger and better, from one society to another.

” Marriage was meant to be between a man and a woman in the eyes of God, anything else means you truly don’t respect or believe in God our creator”

” The journey of life for all mankind is for all to coincide, not for each of us to become divided throughout the journey”

50 years old/a half century??? you pick

In reference to yesterday’s blog on Birthday’s, this got me thinking again, as we turn 50 years old, are we 50 in years, or are we a half century old?
Any way you look at it, we as Humans will always have our own perception of it, when you look at it as a half century, we all know that two halfs make a whole, so then you can say that this is the half way point to a century, meaning that we have reached our mid-life, with that said we can definitly take stock of our life to this point, by looking into the inventory of our lifetime, to see what we have done wrong as well as done right.
We all know that God forgives no matter what your wrongs have been, so why can’t we as people do the same of each other? It is because we fear God as he created us, so we then take that fear and use it on one another, jealousy, greed, hate, are all just words, but they are words we have come to know and use against one another, these words did not exsist before Mankind, a time where Earth wasn’t even a habital Planet for us to exsist, yes this did exsist and we have to drop our ignorence in order to be able to except the truth, the real truth is something we all struggle with, cause we are to ignorant to except.
Whether we are 50 years old, or we are a half century, this is the time to take stock in our lives, look at our inventory, see what we did right as well as what we did wrong, so we can correct our mistakes moving forward, look at it as our second chance, when we truly believe in the Lord God with our heart and soul, we will see he does forgive us of our wrongs, so we can move forward with strength, as our second half century will be better then the first, one day at a time along our Journey of life we all walk.
The Journey of life for some is shorter then others, we will never find the real reason for it, so we need to except it and live our lives without regret, live our lives for good and not evil, so not only we will feel good of ourselves, but it also makes our lives easier when done right, when we feel good of ourselves, it then becomes infectious and spreads throughout Society, but when we are weak and turn to hatred, is when we create this false happiness, which ends up destroying ourselves and all those around us, we walk this Journey on Earth whether long or short, it is up to us, on how this journey ends, so we all need to do it right, believe and trust in the Lord God and he will guide us to the path of rightousness, along this journey of life.

” we all walk a journey through life and it’s us who control our own journey”

” whether 50/half century we all percieve in our own way”

” God forgives us of our wrongs, no matter how wrong they are”
