Be Free


“Draw near to God and he will draw near to you”

James 4:8

You ever get your hand stuck inside a vase, then call for help to get it out, the help says for you to outstretch your hand, as they try to pull the vase from your hand, but you say back to them, if I do that then I drop whatever it is within my hand? We of this society are very similar to this situation, we are so afraid to let go, so we can be free from whatever it is that is holding us back.

We of this society will let fear of anything control who we truly are, this fear will stop us from moving forward and keep us running in circles with no true direction. When the fear of anything comes to us, we then shut down, bury who we truly are deep within, as to try to keep all the pain and hurt away from us. All our true feelings and emotions get buried so deep within along with our true selves, that we then feel nothing and our hearts go cold. When our hearts are cold, we then stop acknowledging Jesus Christ, which then his blood doesn’t flow through and warm our hearts, and even worse, his love gets lost among all the ugliness that surrounds us.

Trust is the word of the day. Trust is what helps us keep all fear at bay, trust is when you truly have trust in yourself, to overcome anything that may come to you. When we have trust in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, there is no fear that will come to us and bring us great pain. I get the fact that there may be some life events that we can not control and come to wreak havoc on us, but when these events come, it is more important than ever, for us to have complete trust in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ. Simply because once the fear takes a hold of us, once the fear grabs us within the big cold hands, it is very hard to break free from that fear. it is not impossible to break free, but it then takes very hard work on us, as it then consumes us so much, that, yes we may get back to who we are, just not totally of who we could have been, as we have used up so much energy, that now we struggle to get away from any fear moving forward, plus now we even fear the fear.

We can be as free as we want to be, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We get so focused on just keeping up with the Jones sort of speak, that we totally forget about walking this path for ourselves. We let everything affect us, and struggle with letting go of anything, so we can move forward better and stronger. This journey is not about us walking it for another, this journey works best if we walk it for ourselves, then as others see this and do the same, now you have a healthy journey, where we all can walk our paths in peace and happiness. Plus when we acknowledge the blood of Christ within our hearts, he then warms our body and soul as well, while his love leaks out of us, and into all those around us.

When my journey finally comes to a close, I want to be an Eagle. A big powerful bird that flies through the skies with no worries, they are so strong they fly so effortlessly no matter how strong the winds are. Watching an Eagle take to the sky and flap those wings with such a force to get really high in the sky, then just simply glide all through the ” big blue yonder”, as they catch those wind currents just right. The Eagle is such a Majestic bird, a bird that its beauty shines from afar, a bird that sees his dinner from so high above and within the waters below, then swoops down and snatches it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle just does its thing along its journey and does not let the fear get in its way, or it wouldn’t be able to soar at such high heights, with the greatest of ease.

Letting go isn’t all about cleaning out the basement, or cleaning out the car. To really let go is about cleaning out yourself, taking stock in your life, seeing where you were, where you are, to get to where you want moving forward. It is kind of like being a hoarder, where you are so afraid to throw anything away, so your house becomes so cluttered with crap, you can’t even walk around the house correctly. The difference is, you have become a Hoarder of your life, where there is so much clutter within yourself, that now you can’t see clearly along your path of the journey. The journey then becomes so heavy that now, you don’t even want to walk anywhere anymore, not just that you don’t want to, you just have no clue of the direction, because of all the inner clutter. Let go, be free, fly the open skies like the bird in this picture, as you let go, so does the heaviness of trying to take off and be free, then you can see clearly along your path, to walk through this journey, to be free, within the peace and happiness, that Jesus Christ showed us, on his journey here with us. Let go and be free, so we all can be everything we want, throughout this journey of life, as peace and happiness surround us all.

” Fly away, be free, don’t let the clutter weigh you down and bring great pain in all you do”

” Focus on yourself more and get away from the focus of others, so you can truly be free to fly the heights you want throughout this journey”

You can only drift for so long………

 

This journey through life comes with no guarantees, you want something out of this journey you need to work to achieve that something, nothing will ever come to you if you simply become complacent and sit idle or drift along as others pass you by along the path for which you walk,  You make your own breaks as you walk your path, true success will come but you have to be able to put in the work, so you than can reap the benefits from that work.

Now some that may be running for a public office may do so with the platform of, healthcare for all, or maybe free education? But in reality, who do you think pays for that free stuff they are promising……… You guessed it, the hard-working Taxpayer. It is kind of like robbing Peter to pay Paul, simply because Paul has become lazy and expects those around him to pay his way through this journey. Just because someone works very hard and has earned all that he may have, does not make it right for another to come along and take from that hard-working Individual.

You want something out of life than work your tail off to achieve it, this will not only make you a wealthy person but will also give you a great feeling deep within your soul, not to mention make you truly happy knowing you have true success, as you walk your path through this journey of life and not sponging off of anything or anybody, while you feel totally complete as a person.

Unfortunately, there are some that may become lazy and expect others to pay their way so they can continue to be lazy, I get the fact that there will be days that you don’t want to get out of bed and go to work, we all have those days, but fat, dumb and lazy is no way to go through life, especially if you want to live life to the fullest and have true success doing it. Nothing is ever free and everything comes with a cost, so when you want to be fat, dumb and lazy, just remember………. there is someone paying for you to be fat, dumb and lazy.

This journey through life has many paths for us to chose and as we walk these paths there will be many crossroads we will encounter as well, these crossroads can throw us a bone to entice us to follow, but when we stay true to who we are, then we can and will see it as a bone, without trying to see something that isn’t really there and becoming someone for who we truly are not. None of us are people who are lazy, this is something we learn, like the hatred we see around us, This journey may not be perfect, we the people may not be perfect, but when we walk our paths through this journey correctly, then we can make it as perfect as we can, for however long we may be here walking through this journey.

 

” You can either be a drifter with nothing or get busy working and achieving all you can achieve”

 

” In order to reap any benefits, you first have to work hard for those benefits and enjoy all success that comes as well”

 

” Fat, dumb and lazy will get you nowhere as hard work will give you the key to all the success you want”

 

 

 

Ashes to Ashes within a journey of life.

Ash Wednesday………. To some it is just another day, yet to others it is a day of reflecting, to check the inventory and the archives of our lives to date, take stock in where we are and see if we are still on the track we set out on, or did we waiver from that track, has things happen that has derailed us from our original plan.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, for those Catholics who don’t follow Religion as they should, it is also for anybody that wants to follow the spirit of God, for he does not discriminate unlike we the people of Mankind and the creation of the Lord God himself. Somewhere along the journey of life, we the people have ventured away from the true purpose of life, we have strayed onto paths that we don’t truly understand, in ways that we want to find our own fruits in life and want to put ourselves above all, as we try to take credit for everything we see around us.

God wants us all to succeed on our paths of our journey of life, he has real pain when we hurt in our lives, we are his creation and the warmth we feel inside our hearts and souls, is God himself with his love for us all, but what we forget to understand is, this love he has within our hearts and souls, is not just meant for each of us individually, it is meant for us to share with each other as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

To truly show how God loves each of us, he sent his one and only son to us named Jesus. Jesus like us walked a path along his journey of life, he healed the less fortunate, he cured the sick, he taught us many things of ourselves, but what he taught us most is to find the way to the true path of righteousness, so we all here on Earth can walk our paths of our journey of life, share the warmth of God’s love inside us with each other, so we all can walk our paths of our journey in peace, in order to be stronger and better, as all Mankind evolves over time.

The season of Lent is a special time, it is a time for us to get back in touch with God and Jesus, it is also a time for us to get back in touch with ourselves, don’t be afraid to show our love of selves to each other, it is also a time of sacrifice, we all have something in our lives to give up, that something we keep trying to forget, but keeps coming back to haunt us, maybe it’s something small but we are embarrassed of others knowing of it, whatever it may be it is time to rid ourselves of it, time to come clean in the eyes of God, so we then can come clean within the core of our souls. Through the season of Lent is the time for each one of us and it doesn’t matter who you are, to cleanse our souls of all the crap we have been carrying around, so come the time of Easter we can also rise up like Jesus did and be free, show more empathy and remorse of each other, which will further our strength to be better everyday of or journey, take this warm feeling within our hearts, which is God’s love for us and share it with everybody/everything that may cross our paths, which will help everybody within this Society walk their paths of their journey of life in peace.

” Lent is time to cleanse, to be free and be who you truly are, so we all can be free with love pouring over each of us as we walk our journeys in peace”

” Lent to some may be just another day, only because they don’t let themselves be free and feel the love of God within us”

We are all Humans within this Society…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

To set the scene, this picture is of the Charles river in Boston, ma. Overlooking the dome at MIT college in Cambridge, this picture was taken on a happy night with 1000’s of other Humans coming together, for the fourth of July fireworks, people along the shores and people out on their boats, none the less, many people coming together to enjoy a great show.

This is what “Freedom” is all about, being free to do, enjoy and have great fun as you wish, this freedom came with a great price and this price was what we celebrate and the meaning of what the fourth of July really stands for, the ones that fought for this freedom,  were not just someones brother, sister, son, or daughter, they to were Humans like the rest of us, they were also very brave for standing up to other Humans, that were trying to take this freedom from us, without reservation they left their loved ones, so the rest of us can enjoy the freedom’s we have today.

There may be some on this Planet that may try to disrupt this freedom and will stop at nothing to keep us from enjoying what ever we want to enjoy, these Individuals are either within a group, or are operating solely on their own, but what they have in common are, they are all Terrorists and will do anything to have the rest of us show the feeling of fear, these Terrorists may be within a group or operate as an Individual, but what they all are equally, is ” Mentally Deranged Individuals”, that will do what ever they have to in order to create this fear in all of us, so they can have a feeling of power, hiding their true pains and harms that have hurt them in their past.

Whether you want to use the word Terrorist, or the word Bully? They are both the same and will do what ever they have to, in order to create this fear in the rest of us, so they can have a feeling of power over all, no matter how you look at it, we are all Humans living on this God created planet Earth, we all suffer some sort of “life event” along our path of our journey in life, just that the Bully or the Terrorist, bury all their true feelings and emotions and lash out on the rest of us, to try to keep us from enjoying our freedoms, that we worked very hard to achieve.

This group called ISIS that we all hear about through the news, is a whole different breed of Bully/Terrorist, they are using social media to recruit, prey and brainwash the weak within our Society, they are so radical, that all their views have become so distorted, that they don’t believe in anything except killing everything that don’t buy into their ways and creating so much fear in us, that we are afraid to enjoy our freedoms, as bad as this group is, they are Humans within this Society just as we all are, if you look back in a time before Jesus walked his Journey, there have been plenty of radicals like ISIS that stop at nothing to create fear in others, so they can get all the power, their views were also distorted in ways we can’t explain, well it’s time to understand this distorted way of these Bullies/Terrorists, so we can all get back to walking our paths along our journey of life, in peace, love and be free to enjoy the freedom that our brave Individuals, fought for throughout all Mankind.

” A Terrorist is the same as a Bully in that they inflict fear in all of us, so they can have more power”

” No matter who you are, we are all Humans on this God created planet, that need to coincide with each other, to live in peace while showing love of one another”

” Freedom is never free, it always comes with a great price”
