The Baptism of Faith

Creek

 

Throughout this journey of life, when we have total faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we will always acknowledge and know what the word Baptize truly means. Those of us who actually go to church, what is the first thing you do when you walk in the door of the Church? You dip your fingers into a ceramic bowl with Holy water, now I wonder if anybody knows what to do next? You make the sign of the cross on yourself then continue to go to your Pew, so you can kneel before God and Jesus and ask for them to forgive us of our sins.

This is what we all do each and every Sunday as we enter into the house of God. Within this Society of Political Correction and All about me, we have become lost within the clouds of our judgements and seem to have lost the true faith of ourselves let alone our Savior Jesus Christ.  To some this Faith is so far gone that, they don’t even believe in God, the creator of all Mankind. When we let go of this Faith, then all heck breaks loose and we not only doubt each other, but we doubt ourselves and who we truly are. We are a Society in Turmoil right now and it will take each and every one of us, to regain this faith and show our love of ourselves with each other, instead of giving in to the Temptation of Evil and getting sucked in to the Drama of Hate.

We all come to this Earth in the same way, as a little precious Child that needs affection and care everyday. We get taught how to live within Society. We get Baptized in the house of God at a young age, when we are Baptized is when the belief of Faith begins and the journey along a path we walk starts. This Baptism is what lets us look deeply into what we see, it also helps us to see who we truly are before we become lost within the clouds of our judgements. In Today”s Society some do not get Baptized, simply because others don’t truly have an idea what the true faith is, then they stop another from truly having Faith and from looking deeply into what they see.

These paths we all walk through this journey of life and yes there are many of them, to which the paths may be different, but the journey is all the same. These paths have twists and turns, bumps and bruises and they will test us as we walk them, but these tests as much as we might think, will never fail us, but they will make us better and stronger throughout this entire journey we are on in our lives. The way we become better and stronger is the acknowledgment of God and the Faith in him as well as in ourselves and as we walk into the house of God every Sunday and kneel before him, so we then can ask for his forgiveness, plus with the faith in him and ourselves, will always have us looking deeply into what we see, so we then can see that when we are Baptized from a young age, this Baptism continues when we enter the house of God each and every week, dip our finger into the basin of Holy water and give ourselves the sign of the cross.

 

” Baptism is a special time in all our lives, its the Faith that keeps it special everyday along our paths of this journey through life”

” Sometimes we dip our finger into the Holy water in the house of God, cause we simply think we are suppose to do it like the others”

” To truly acknowledge the Baptism into the Faith of God, we will always look deeply into what we see and know truly who we are”

May the light of the path always shine bright.

Autumn Leaves          ” I will go anywhere and do anything in order to communicate the love of Jesus to those who do not know him, or have forgotten him”

****St. Frances Xavier****

Cabrini

We all walk a path through this Journey of life, whether we chose a path that has already been carved out, or whether we carve our own path, there will never be a wrong path, if only we learn to walk the path correctly, so we can walk in peace and happiness, sharing the love of God that is within us all, with each other as we walk our paths along this journey through life.

When we walk these paths through the journey of life, there will always be objects that come before us, for us to overcome, there will always be others who come along our path, that will try to sway us away from our direction, in order to bring us to their path and direction, as we keep our faith and trust in God and stay true to ourselves, as well as the path of righteousness that Jesus showed us, these people that come before us on our paths and the objects that come before us, will only be a temporary set back, as we will always move forward along our paths and become stronger, with more confidence, for whatever else that may come before us along our paths of this journey through life.

These paths we walk through this journey of life are all full of the unknown, we never know what is around the next corner? Although when we stay true to who we are and keep our faith and trust in God, no matter what lies around the corner, we can get through it keeping us moving forward and not becoming lost within our own selves, or even becoming lost within the clouds of our judgements. “God and Jesus will never steer us wrong, it is us as Individuals that steer ourselves in the wrong direction”. Trust in ourselves as well as the trust in God and Jesus, will always get us around each corner of our paths, along this journey through life.

The unknown along our paths of this journey of life is what brings us the most fear, which is why we tend to stay within ourselves and not reach out at the times we need it most. The deeper we get into this journey of life, we tend to lose trust in ourselves as well as all that is around us and this includes God and Jesus, we see all the ugliness around us, so we then stay within ourselves, to hide our pain and keep ourselves from further harm. When we lose this trust in ourselves and God, we then forget how to truly forgive ourselves, which then keeps us from forgiving anything that is around us. God will always have faith in us and will always forgive us no matter of who you are, it is us as Individuals that need to have faith and forgive ourselves, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life, with strength and confidence, as we all walk in peace and happiness always.

” God and Jesus will never steer us wrong, it is us as Individuals that steer ourselves in the wrong direction”

” The fear of the unknown is a scary thing for all that walk a path along this journey through life”

” Getting away from the trust in ourselves and in the trust of God, will always keep us from truly moving forward along the paths of our journey of life”

Aggression……Hate……….My way or nothing???

            These words of, Aggression, Hate and My way or nothing, are simply that……just words, but these words are learned by all of us within this Society, these words are not part of who we are, from the time of our first breathe here on Earth. These words come to us from somewhere, we learn of them from someone/somewhere? These words are not part of who we are, as God did not create Mankind to be this way. We are the ones that are responsible for these words, now is the time to accept our responsibility, know who we truly are, so we can fix our issues, fix all our mistakes, so we can then walk our paths of this journey of life in peace, while we all share our love of ourselves with each other, instead of stepping on each other, just to make ourselves out to be better then all those around us.

All the drugs within this Society, whether of the illegal or legal kind, have us all medicated to the point, we have lost who we truly are. When you go to the Doctor and today there are some of them, that simply prescribe drugs to you, because they are too lazy, to find out what is truly causing your pain, so they give you a temporary fix to subside your pain, but this pain never goes away and now you are addicted to these drugs, so now you take to the illegal drugs just to keep the pain away? This is one big vicious circle that is spinning way out of control, this also could be the true answer to where we learned to Hate, show aggression towards others and it’s my way or nothing attitudes we have towards each other.

In order to truly fix and know who we are, we need first to get to the root of the problem, so we then can truly fix all our issues, then we can move forward stronger and better than we are now. We can move forward learning to love one another, have more patience of one another and be more open with one another, instead of being aggressive, hateful and it’s my way or nothing attitudes we have now. The journey of life we all travel together, but when we travel it with aggression, hate and my way or nothing attitudes, the journey than becomes a journey we all hate and we all get lost within the clouds of our judgements.

We all walk this journey of life together, the paths we take may be different, but there are no wrong paths, the only wrong part of our paths are, what we learn and take with us along our journey through life. We need to be more responsible and accept that there are bad life Teacher’s out there, who will teach us these words of Hate…aggression…and my way or nothing attitudes, simply because they have learned wrongfully also, this vicious circle has to stop somewhere? This circle has turned us all into someone we truly are not, to stop this circle and break the links of the chain, simply lies on each one of us who walk a path along this journey of life.

” We all learn what we do from somewhere we are not born to hate, show aggression, or simply my way or nothing attitude”

” We all walk this journey of life together, we may take different paths, but we all need to learn the good in each other and not exploit the bad, which does nothing but make this a broken Society”

” To truly fix any issues you first need to get to the root of the issue, then take the corrective action to make it better”

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”

A Society in the fog…….

A Society in the fog as we all walk a path of this journey through life,

the journey through life is precious for all as we get one shot at it,

we struggle through it at times because we don’t acknowledge our inner child,

we don’t know how to truly cry, so we can heal and be stronger in our lives,

We suffer through life events even though some may not be our fault at all,

true crying will heal if we truly know how to cry when we need to heal ourselves,

we all grow from a young child, but we neglect that inner child within us,

The pain we feel on the outside a lot of times is the inner child crying within us,

like we care for our children as they grow we need to care for our inner child as well,

life’s lessons will teach us to be better and stronger,

but to truly learn of the lessons we need to acknowledge the inner child within us,

when we acknowledge the inner child we also have to forgive that child,

so we than can truly forgive ourselves as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life,

crying isn’t just shedding a tear or getting our eyes wet to get sympathy,

true crying is for us to heal that child within so we can heal ourselves in our lives,

when we don’t know why we have pain is because we don’t acknowledge our inner child,

we all hurt deeply inside we just have to forgive our inner child so we than can heal the hurt.

” we all have an inner child within us, we have to acknowledge that child so we can be better and stronger as we walk our paths along this journey of life”

” when we forgive something we first have to forgive ourselves and that child within us”

” true crying helps us all heal our hurt, we first have to learn to cry correctly, instead of buying into Society’s thinking of, crying is a sign of weakness”

Attacks of Terrorism are acts on all Humanity throughout Mankind.

Terrorist acts are happening everywhere and not just in places we hear on the news, it happens within all the countries and it has no boundaries, what it does have is, Individuals who are Human like you and I, just that these Individuals have suffered within their own lives somewhere along their journey of life, they have also suppressed their true selves so deep within themselves, even they have lost who they truly are and instead of working hard at fixing themselves, they have taken the coward way out, or the lazy way out, by only showing anger of anything/anyone that is around them and with all the technology that we have today, Terrorism has taken on the power of temptation that Satan feeds off of, in order to control all of God’s people and hopefully one day God himself? Those of us that have complete faith and belief in the Lord God, know that Satan will never control God, nor will he control the true believers of God as well.

God sent his one and only son to us in the name of Jesus Christ, along the journey of Jesus he sought out John the Baptist and asked him to baptize him, this came with some reservation, why would the son of God need to be baptized? If you truly believe and have faith in God you know this answer, the journey of Jesus was meant to teach us and guide us to the path of righteousness, getting baptized was the start of all this, showing us that no matter who you are, or what you have done, when you start a new and  have complete faith in God, as well as the complete faith in yourself, you can be anything and you can over come anything that your path in life may take you, trust yourself as well as God and he will guide you to the path of righteousness, never let anger turn you into something/someone you are not and never let the temptation of Satan win you over, as you won’t even recognize yourself, or what you have become.

With all the ugliness that is around us today, whether in our communities or globally around the World, this is an attack on all of us within Humanity, this is Satan trying to tempt us, just like he did Jesus on his journey, like Jesus did we also can do and that is don’t give into temptation, this takes strength and strength we all have within us, just that we need to trust in ourselves better, forgive ourselves better and have more confidence in ourselves, as well as confidence in Jesus and the Lord God, who created all of us within Humanity.

When we ask for God to forgive us, we first have to forgive ourselves, just as all the good books out there like the Bible, Koran, or whatever Religious book is of your faith? They all have the same message of, “do unto others, as you would want done to you”, to forgive ourselves is the hardest thing for all of us to do, it was always the hardest to do, as when we do it correctly, it shows nothing but strength and when we have this strength, God see’s this and then forgives us of our sin’s, so we than can start a new, to correct our mistakes and move forward along our paths of our journey of life, with strength to be better than ever.

With all this ugliness we see throughout the World today and even within our communities, we first have to look at ourselves, as we are all guilty of not forgiving ourselves properly, we have lost what it is to forgive ourselves, as all we think of is, ” I am always right and do nothing wrong”, nobody throughout Mankind is perfect, we all make mistakes that need to be fixed and forgave, when we truly understand the how to forgive ourselves and the action of really forgiving ourselves, than God will forgive our sin’s, so we can continue our path of our journey of life, while we stay true to ourselves and truly be who we are, so we all here within Humanity can be stronger and better, while we live and walk in peace and share our love of ourselves, with each other everyday of our existence.

” To truly forgive ourselves is the hardest thing for us to do, it is also the most rewarding thing we will ever know”

” To truly understand how to forgive, will help us all correct our mistakes and help us all move forward with strength and confidence”

Who do we really know along our Journey’s of life

We all take our own paths along our Journey of life, we meet many other Individuals along the way, some of these Individuals may bring harm to us, some may simply enhance our own lives, the only way to truely see what other Individuals may hold for us, is to truely get to know them on the inside and not judge them from outside appearence.
When Jesus walked this Earth, you think everybody agreed to his ways? You think he was judged of his words over his actions? There were many doubters back then as there are today, just as people back then, we people of today doubt Jesus as well, mainly cause we have never seen him, or his Father the Lord God himself, because we have never seen either of them, makes it hard to believe in their exsistence, so we than move forward thinking that we are alone with our troubles and there is no one to help us through our darkest times.
The Society of the time before Jesus came to us, was a very troubled Society, just as our Society of today, there was so much fear out there that they walked their journey’s by, judgeing others by their exterior instead of by their interior, just so they could try to protect themselves from any harm that may come to them, this is exactly what we are doing today in this Society, when we judge by looks on the outside, we are are missing out on the true beauty of what may be on the inside of each other.
God and Jesus may not be seen on the outside, but deep within our hearts and souls, they are there in all of us, whether you want to acknowledge it or not, no matter what we have done in our lives, when we acknowledge them inside us, they will always forgive us, which is what we in this Society are afraid to do, to truely forgive something, is what helps us move forward on our paths along our Journey of life, with strength to be better and happy throughout Society, Jesus tought us this on his Journey and in this Society, it has gone in one ear and out the other.
When you walk down the street, don’t just look at someone, objectify them and judge them by their exterior, look at them as a Human Being, a person with feelings and a son/daughter of a Mother and Father, cause deep inside they are the most beautiful thing as with you or I deep inside our hearts and souls, we may not see God, we may not see Jesus, but they are deep within each of us, whether you acknowledge it or not, they are in our hearts and souls, so be careful with your judgements, as the judgement one day you will come to see with your own eyes.

” when you judge an Individual on the outside, you are missing out on the true beauty that Individual holds on the inside”

” if you don’t know an Individual, than don’t judge them by the exterior, get to truely know them to see their true beauty and what lies deep inside them”

Trust is a must!!! It keeps us strong moving forward

Trust is a part of our lives we all take for granted, we use it in a way to take advantage of other’s for our personal gain, we use it to try to fit in with a certain clique, when we use it’s power for the wrong reasons, we do nothing but bring much pain and hatred to the Society.
Look at the old days of the Mafia when they use to control the streets, they used this trust to get into the heads of other’s, whether a fellow street thug, or someone in which they want to control, as we can see from all the facts, all it did was create alot of hate and pain, when you see the word “trust” you may see a word, but if you really look deep into this word, you can see the true power this word holds.
The true meaning and power of this word “trust” is a beautiful thing, when being true to the trust it’s power of love and beauty is like no other on this Planet, true trust brings out the love within our hearts, shows the beauty of our souls and spreads within a Society like wildfire, as the Society grows with much strength.
We all have this true trust within us, we just have to release it with sincerity, this Society we live today has forced us to hide this true trust, with all the distrust of each other, the faking of this trust, to gain control of someone or something, just for our own personal gain, we are all guilty of this today and it shows with how Society has become today.
What is truly sad about taking advantage of this word truth is, there are people out there that will stop at nothing and hide their own empathy, so they can gain your trust, take advantage of you, so they can control everything about you and when they are done with you, basically kick you to the curb, as they move on to their next victim, this is the true reality we live with today in this Society. meanwhile the person they kicked to the curb, has changed even without them realizing the why? their true trust has been violated, their self esteem hardly exsists at all and they do what they have to to hide within theirselves, in order to try to move forward with their lives.
This is what we have become within this Society, without this true trust we no longer can show our true love of one another anymore, which is why we have so much hatred in this Society today, the way we change this is, each one of us as an Individual has to stop, look around and look deep within themselves, take stock and inventory of our lives to date, see where it went wrong, then proceed with fixing our wrongs and our mistakes, so we than can stop hiding within ourselves, forgive all that has hurt us in the past, so we can move forward with strength and confidence, as we all do this we will see the true trust and the love coming back to us, just like God forgives us for whatever we have done, no matter how bad the situation, we to have to forgive so we can move on stronger along our Journey of life.

“Trust is a word that it’s real power is within each of us”

“The power of trust brings out our forgivness and love of everything we encounter”
