As I sit here within the beauty of Mother Nature, deep within the wilderness of northern Maine, I hear nothing but the tree’s whispering in the wind, the Loons singing their daily tunes, the water of the lake splashing the shoreline, then an occaissional Moose coming down from the mountains taking his daily plunge in the lake. There is nothing better but to escape into the land of God’s country, A country that will heal your mind, body and soul, especially, with all the crap within this Society of today.
We all walk this journey through life, there is so much of this journey we take so for granted, we get so caught up within our daily routines, we never step outside within Mother Nature, to experience her true beauty. Yes Mother Nature can be very furious and unleash that anger at times, but that is part of life, that is also how we are as people, we to can unleash alot of anger, but the problem then lies with each of us, as we then never look deeper so we can show our beauty, show our love within us, cause when we do, we to can be as beautiful as Mother Nature.
God created this planet, this world for which we walk this journey, how do we show our appreciation, we attack one another, we bring much ugliness and hatred to each other, when we bring this, we also bring much pain and hurt to one another as well, this was not God’s vision when he worked hard to create this beauty for us all, he wanted us to enjoy it, to heal ourselves of our troubles when needed, so we didn’t bring the ugliness and hatred we see now, to each other.
The journey through life really is not that hard, it’s we the people with our actions that make this journey seem hard, hatred is a learned behavior, love is within us all, if we only unlearn the hatred and showmore love and empathy to each other, then all the ugliness will go away, then step outside within the beauty of Mother Nature, to heal properly from our troubles, so we all can walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, always and forever.
” God’s country is so pristine and full of true beauty at every turn”
” We the people are the problem along this journey with our actions, we the people are also the solution as well”
” Heaven and Earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away”
Matthew 24: 35
” There is security in knowing that God’s word never changes, what is true today will be true a thousand years from now, there is no surprise ending”
Within the society of today, there is so much said and so much that is said out of haste, it makes it very hard to distinguish the truth from nontruth, some may say the same lie over and over till all are on board with making it a reality? There are so many nontruths out there, it comes to a point you just do not know for who is telling the truth anymore and this practice couldn’t be more true with the so-called leaders of today, they want so bad to lead us in the wrong direction, that they have lost total sight of which direction to travel in. These so-called leaders are so threatened by God and Jesus, they will do anything to eliminate them from the lives of the rest of us and even without consulting us as well because the word of God is the truth, which has been tried and tested for all who have walked a journey throughout this planet of Earth.
To believe in the word of God and the journey of his son Jesus Christ, we ourselves have to have complete faith so we can then have true hope moving forward. Some have lost that faith which leads them to have no hope, so they then will say anything to the rest of us, in order for us to follow them and not the true word of God. Jesus came here and walked his path of this journey, to show us just how to walk while we shared our love of one another, while he led us to the path of righteousness. This journey really is not that hard, just that over time we the people have made this journey seem hard by our actions or should I say inactions. If you can not walk your path of this journey, without messing up another’s shine,……… Well then maybe you should stay hidden under that rock that you crawled out from.
I get the fact that we all have our own faith and beliefs, true there are many different religions out there with their own God’s, but there is one true God who not only created what is around you but also created each one of us as well. We are all entitled to have our faiths and beliefs of whatever religion we practice, but when we push ourselves on one another to have us like a religion to make it reign supreme………. This is not the vision God had for us, nor is this what Jesus taught us when he came to us and walked his journey with us.
The only light we of this society see today is, the light of selfishness until we totally get over ourselves, we will never see the true light of God and Jesus Christ his son. We the people of this society are what is wrong with this society and until we wake up into true reality and listen to the true words of God once again, then none of the ugliness, hatred, evil and corruption will go away, not just about listening to the words of God, but seriously having the faith of these words, so we all can have the hope for all the good to come to us, so we all can move forward in true happiness and peace, while we share the love of Jesus in our hearts and souls with each other, as we then can see the light of the path of righteousness, that Jesus came here to lead us all to.
” When we see the true light of Jesus Christ, then we all can have the faith and hope needed to move forward better and stronger”
” In today’s society, there is way too much propaganda and not enough true reality for any of us moving forward in a healthy way”
” You need faith to have any hope they both go together like peanut butter and jelly, you can not have one without the other”
” Jesus answered, ” My kingdom does not belong to this world, if my kingdom did belong to this world, my Attendants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews, but as it is, my kingdom is not here.”
*** Jn 18:36 ***
The Kingdom of God is truly the highest and most rewarding for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus died on the cross for each of us, was buried and ” Rose” again for all, so we can renew our faith in him and his father, he rose to the one true kingdom of his father, where there is nothing but peace and happiness for all. Now as we all walk through this journey of life, we think from our arrogance that, this is the kingdom of God and why would he let all this hatred and ugliness within his kingdom? Simply because this is not the true kingdom, it is only a journey, with many twists and turns, that gets us ready for the day of the judgment, that then brings us to the true kingdom of God, so we than can have all the peace and happiness, that is within our hearts, souls and dreams.
This journey through life we all walk here on Earth is not perfect, it will bring us much pain, hurt, sadness, as well as happiness, not too mention it will try to control of who we truly are, but as we walk through this journey, it will test us, it will see just how strong or weak we are and as we walk this journey, it is our actions that will help us in achieving the judgment to enter within the one true Kingdom……….. The Kingdom of God, the father of our savior Jesus Christ.
For those that have ventured out within Mother nature and really seen the true beauty, like what is within this picture, you will truly see that, there is so much more to this journey through life, than just what we see on our daily nine to fives? We were created to explore, we were not created just to sit still and criticize each other. It is we the people that are totally responsible for all the hatred and ugliness around us today and unless we get out of the denial, that has a grip so tightly on us today, we will never escape the ugliness and hatred, which will leave us on a journey of negativity, instead of a journey of love, peace and happiness, it is our actions that determine our fate along this journey and if we do nothing, then the hate and ugliness will forever surround us, with no light at the end of the journey, which is the true light of the path of righteousness, that leads us out of the temptation of this journey and into the true kingdom of God, as we all have eternal life within peace and happiness.
With our actions it will help us keep the faith in Jesus Christ, which then will help us keep the faith of ourselves, so we than can always have hope, to be better and stronger, as we achieve all that we want to achieve, without having any ugliness or hatred slow us down along our path of this journey. I get the fact we all want to reach a high level of achievement, but at what cost do we want that achievement? not everybody can be at the top of this journey, but yet we ourselves and our arrogance, will have us think we are better than those around us and that should have us above all else? We are not better than each other, we are only unique to each other and unless we escape the grips of the denial, we will never end all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now.
The true Kingdom of God is a special place, that surrounds you with real love, peace and happiness. Some of us today may think that our chances of entering into this Kingdom upon judgment day, will never happen? On the contrary, Jesus always forgives and even when we think there is no hope for us? Jesus will forgive us and when we except Jesus within our hearts and forgive ourselves of all our wrongs, that is when the power of God and his son Jesus are the strongest, as they truly forgive us, so we than can right the ship and walk this journey better and stronger moving forward.
The spot in this picture is truly peaceful and will totally relax you as you sit and enjoy the peace, with all the daily stress simply melting away and the drooping of your shoulders from the weight of the stress, making your posture much better as your shoulders go back to where they originally were. Love, peace and happiness are the three keys to a successful journey, leading into the true kingdom of God and with all three of these keys, plus the complete faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, now your on the true path of righteousness, which totally at judgment day, helps us enter into the true Kingdom of God.
” Judgment day is that day we all reach along this journey, when the journey comes to an end”
” The kingdom of all kingdoms, is the one we meet Jesus at the gates upon judgment day at the end of the journey”
” Love, peace and happiness are the keys for true faith in Jesus and ourselves, so we all can have the hope in reaching the path of righteousness”
” There are plenty of spots within peace like in this picture, we just have to get out and explore to find the true peace and serenity”
” I am the living bread that came down from Heaven, who ever eats this bread will live forever and the bread that I will give is, my flesh for the life of the World”.
True words from Jesus Christ as he showed to each of us, just how much he loved us, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness always, as we shared this same love with one another.
Now within this Society we will interpret this quote in many ways, which is fine as we all can think for ourselves, ” I think”……… But to truly read and understand this quote and it’s true meaning, you first have to believe totally in Jesus Christ, believe totally in his Father our God, then we can truly believe in ourselves as we walk our paths of this journey.
The Bread of life is the substance of our lives and just how we not only treat ourselves, but how we treat each other as we walk through this journey of life. We all want so bad to be accepted by one another, that we totally forget in the one thing that Jesus taught us while he walked here with us and that is, truly feeling the love within our hearts and souls and then sharing that love with one another. This love is the bond we have with Jesus and God our Father, with this love there is never any hate that will enter into our lives. When something goes wrong as we walk our paths and when we truly feel the love within us, we then will never dwell and bury our sorrows, as we will fix what we need to fix, so we than can keep moving forward along our paths of this journey.
Jesus Christ gave so much of himself as he walked his journey here with us, he then sacrificed and died for us all while showing just how deep his love for us was and still is. During the last supper with his Disciples, Jesus took ordinary wine and bread, and turned it into his body and blood, just so when we truly believed, we to can share and go out and announce to all, that the true love of Jesus Christ is within us all, we just have to truly feel it deep within our hearts and souls, let the warmth of this love warm our entire bodies, so we then can walk in peace and be happy in all we do.
It is very sad that within this broken Society, we continue the brokenness simply because we don’t want to truly understand what it is we are doing, we don’t want to understand the why’s of the things that come to us and harm us, we want to only blame everything around us, instead of standing up and excepting responsibility when we need to. When we have our issues to deal with, we let the shame of those issues control who we are, we let the shame dictate just how we walk our paths, just to try to make the harm go away? our troubles and the harm they bring never go away, til we truly acknowledge them and fix what we need to fix, truly believe in ourselves and Jesus Christ, so we then can be blessed with the true “Bread of Life”, as the Blood of Christ washes away our sins, then we can truly feel the love of Jesus within us, as it warms our hearts and souls, then we can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” The Bread of life is the substance of all our lives and the true belief in Jesus Christ as well as the true belief in ourselves moving forward”
” We are all responsible for this broken Society, time we except responsibility for our actions and move forward with strength instead of backwards in weakness”
” Jesus Christ loved us all deeply and we need to truly believe so we can truly feel this love within us”
” In order to have complete faith in ourselves, we first have to have complete faith in Jesus Christ and God our Father”
” This is a post that I wrote a couple years ago and I chose this pix as it used to be home of the Old Man of the Mountain in New Hampshire. With a few tweaks this post shows that through change, we all can walk our paths peacefully, while being happy along our journey of life”
” This journey through life really is too short to have it bring us great pain and sorrow, but through change and done correctly, we all can walk our paths in peace and be stronger and better moving forward”
Our Journey of life is far different, than any journey or trek we take, in a vacation sort of way, a vacation is a journey that we set up and control, so we can get away from reality for a bit and unwind to also relax, a Journey we all walk through life, is reality and a journey that we can’t control where we go, only walk the journey correctly, in order to make it a safe and happy passage.
Throughout this Journey of life, we as Humans go through many changes, these changes comes to us in many different ways, these changes can also be very ugly for us if we let them control our being, as these changes come to us, yes we will not accept them at first, that is perfectly okay, it is a natural feeling within all of us, when we are resistant to these changes, is when we become something we truly are not, if God thought these changes were bad for us, he wouldn’t allow these changes to come to us along our journey of life.
Change is good for the soul, if we handle them correctly and learn to accept, instead of not acknowledging that they happen for a reason, to help us be better and stronger moving forward on our paths of our journey of life.
The Journey of our vacations, is very different than our journey of life, the journey of life is all our realities and how we walk our paths through life, these changes come to us at the cross roads of our paths, God puts them there for us to see them, but it is up to us to truly see them and to acknowledge them, so we can accept them and make our journeys better and stronger moving forward, there is so much more to life than all the materialistic things we acquire, it is the spiritualistic things that drive us to walking our journey being safe, while moving forward with the strength to be better, not just for ourselves, but for all we meet along our journey.
When change comes to us, it happens in many ways, sometimes change is needed and sometimes it is unwanted, but what makes all change very ugly, is us as Humans not accepting it and resisting it, which makes us become bitter and become something/someone we are truly not.
Change is something we all go through along our journeys, change could be something very simple to us, like not putting sugar in your coffee, or other change can be very difficult, like a lifestyle change, which the latter is usually the one most likely to be resisted, but when we resist this change, is the start of us moving forward being someone we are not and not truly being ourselves, another type of change we deal with is, when a life event happens to us, these events come to us in many ways, just like change comes to us, these events can be very emotional and painful to us as well, which is when we change ourselves in ways that truly isn’t who we are, change will happen to all of us as we walk our paths, it is part of the journey that God try’s to guide us into the right direction, it is how we deal with the change that makes us into who we are, the choice is always given to us by God, we can either accept or resist the change, but each will either make our paths along our journey of life be very emotional and much pain, or we can be in peace to be better and stronger moving forward.
” Change is a part of life, we can accept or resist, then either way we have to live with our choice, by becoming someone we truly are not”
” Change can be ugly, or change can be beautiful, the choice is ours to make as we walk our journeys of life”
” God puts this change at our crossroads of our paths, the choice is ours to accept or resist all these changes”
” There are many roads for us to travel through this journey of life, each of the roads are very different in their Characteristics”
We all walk a path through this journey of life, with these paths comes many roads and cross roads, for us to make a choice in which direction to go. Before we come to any road, we all start this journey very much in the same way and no one is different than the other. We are born and raised from two loving Individuals, that take their love and make the most precious thing on this planet……… A child. Somewhere along this journey and the choices of the roads we follow, we have lost what being a good parent is, we have lost our way along this journey and we make big choices without thoroughly thinking the choice through, before we take the action of that choice.
We as Humans are no different than any other species on this planet, as two loving Individuals form a child out of their love of one another, this is all part of the cycle of life and just what God wanted when he created all that walk and breathe on this planet of Earth. With this Child comes great responsibility on the part of these Parents and to make the choice of being a parent, is one of the biggest choices any of us will ever make, along the roads of this journey of life.
Now within this Society we all live, we can clearly see that, there have been some choices made without thinking through of the actions of the choice, as some are having children and then neglecting them without taking their responsibility more seriously. Some are having children with many partners instead of having just one that will share the responsibility and help raise the child. God created a man and a woman to become more than friends, he wanted them to be together for eternity, so they then can develop a deep love of one another and out of this love, they then can have a child to raise and teach, so the child can one day have the same responsibility themselves. When you raise a child properly, you need both the characteristics of the man and the woman to raise the child properly, just as the characteristics of the roads are different our characteristics are also different then each other and when we bring them together in a good way, there is nothing but beauty and love that comes to each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
Within this Society today we don’t take the time to truly look around as we travel down the roads of life, when we don’t take the time we need, we then make rash decisions at the cross roads, instead of thinking through our decisions of the choice in the road we select. just because one road is paved and the other is gravel or dirt, you can’t assume that the paved will be the road best traveled? sometimes there are many cracks in the pavement that we need to over come, which then detours us from our actual direction, with these detours we then become side tracked and lost along our way and as we try to find our way, we then lose totally of who we truly are. Life will always throw you a curve ball, it is how you see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine if you hit the ball out of the park or not. There is no road that is a bad road, it is just how we view the road and how we make the choice of the road, that determines our destiny as we walk our paths, along this journey of life and will also determine, how peaceful and happy we are, as we move forward within this journey.
” This journey of life throws us many curve balls, it is how we see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine how far we hit the ball”
” Having a child comes with a big responsibility, with the right choices this responsibility turns into great love and happiness throughout our journey”
” God created a man and a woman not for us to objectify each other, but to truly look at each other respectfully and to create a beautiful life with our true love of one another”
” Their are many roads in which to travel, some may be paved and some may be dirt, but they all have their own characteristics of each other”
I remember the cartoon called Woody the Wood Pecker, this guy on this Birch tree isn’t quite as colorful or loud as Woody was. Watching him peck into this tree, I can say one thing that, for a small bird he has one heck of a strong beak. While camping deep in the Wilderness, there were many different birds that I have seen, with the Eagle being the one most viewed daily. All these birds fly around so open and free, with no worries of anything as they fly around. Then there were the Loons and the Canada Geese swimming in the lake and moving about as free as the birds flying in the sky. Maybe if there is reincarnation? I would love to come back as a bird, more specific, the American Bald Eagle, because they soar among the thermal in the sky as free and with a worry free mind, plus as they fly they do it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle is a big bird with a big wing span and when he fishes in the lake, it is awesome to watch as he swoops down on it’s prey, then grabs it within its claws and fly’s away to the nest they call home. When the Eagle swoops down to grab the fish, they make it look so easy like maybe I to could just reach in and grab a fish? But as I try, I then find out it ain’t so easy.
Just as we walk our paths through this journey of life, they to being the Birds also have a path to follow along their journey through life. We share this planet of Earth with many other species, but some may think we own this planet? on the contrary, God created this planet for all to coincide with each other, to enjoy and travel their journey in peace and happiness, but we the Human species through Greed and Stupidity, have made all our journeys become painful and full of chaos. We have totally forgotten how to share anything with anybody anymore, all we want is me…..me……me…… all the time, with no respect or regard for anything around us. This was not God’s vision when he created all within this planet, but it is how we Humans have evolved through our own stupidity and the need for Greed. We have ruined all the Habitats of all the other species, with the building up of all the land around, then we wonder why we are now being visited by some of the wild creatures around us? It is not uncommon for a Bear or a Moose to run through our yards today, simply because we have torn down their homes, to build up our homes to sell and become more greedy. Now we look for cleaner energy like the wind mill farms, where the Government wants to put them up by the 100’s, but unless you take the land from the people, where then will you turn? cause if you turn to cutting down more tree’s to open up an area for these windmills, now your forcing the animal world out of their homes, to try to blend in somewhere else and where do you think that somewhere else is? Correct, right in our own back yards. The bottom line for all the corruption and greed we see today is, everybody has their hands out for the green paper, with no regard or respect for what is around them anymore.
With all this corruption, greed and stupidity around us today, I would love to be an Eagle right now, simply because they are a protected bird, being the symbol of our Country and with that said, they can fly freely to where ever they want to go, with no worries of where they are going, not too mention only the Bear is as good as a Fisherman as they. Ahh!!! the beauty of soaring the great blue yonder, seeing everything from up above and then shitting on all the corruption below and I would know where just to drop the little turd bombs, then laugh as I fly by…….then as I return to the nest that i would call home.
We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as all the other species around us. to stop all this corruption and have no regrets, we first have to start respecting all that is around us, then we have to eliminate the greediness that has engulfed us, so we then can walk our paths in peace and all our journey’s will be happy for all.
” The American Bald Eagle is a beautiful bird, that simply soars through the sky with the greatest of ease”
” Corruption, Greed and stupidity has engulfed us all, time to respect all that is around us, to end the ugliness that has engulfed us”
” We wouldn’t want anybody to force us out of our homes, why then do we do it to the other species”
” Woody the Wood Pecker in the cartoon was fiction, as the real Wood Pecker blends in to the environment and isn’t as flamboyant”
” Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the Righteous”
Just as this branch has its many other branches and all these logs despite their state of repair, we to do not need the glory or the fame, to truly succeed along our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he didn’t want all the fanfare, he wanted to walk among us as simple as he could, but yet through his actions and at his resurrection, was when we the people saw the repayment of his love toward us all.
We in this Society put so much pressure on ourselves, just to succeed in a way that we think succeeding is supposed to be, with all this pressure we then become sick in ways we don’t truly understand, to succeed is not about the fancy cars, the big house, the knowing of what we may think of being in the “in crowd”, or the knowing of what we think are people that are more successful than ourselves. “True success is within you yourself and within your heart”. Success doesn’t have to be about how you look towards others, it definitely doesn’t have any measurement or comparison to each other in any way shape or form, this is the part of our walking this journey, that does nothing but makes us all sick and forces us against each other, simply because we now become jealous of one another.
We are similar in a way like this branch, we come into this World pretty much the same, then we branch out (sort of speak) in many different ways, making success of one, very different than the success of another. Then instead of looking for payment as we try to find our true selves, we will get plenty pay as we watch with pride, what our journey has been from a far. When we try to be successful in life, by reaching for the big house, the fancy cars etc….. All we are truly doing is, hurting ourselves and becoming sick from trying to hard and trying to measure our success on one another. Jesus went to many gatherings along his journey, he never wanted to sit with those who thought they were the “in crowd”, he only wanted to be seen with those that others thought of as non successful, he didn’t care what others thought of him, he only cared what he thought of himself, as his heart became full, with the love of himself toward one another.
We in this Society have become so engulfed with what we think success is, that we have totally lost the true meaning of success. The not knowing of true success has lead us into a world full of hatred of one another, with no sign of Empathy anywhere along our paths of this journey. True success is never seen among us, it is only felt deep within our core of our being, Jesus taught us this within his journey, but being so far removed from his journey, only proves how much we have forgotten from his journey. We all walk a path through this journey of life, to truly succeed we have to feel it, while we feel the love of Jesus within our hearts, which is our guide that tells us, we are on the right track. When we feel nothing as we try to succeed with the fancy cars and the big house, only proves just how out of touch we have become, not just of ourselves, but with each other of this Society.
” True success is never seen among us, as it is only felt deep within our core”
” The fancy cars and the big houses are only material things that mean nothing toward our true success of life”
” Hiking to any summit of a mountain will show you what the feeling of true success is and will also show you that it takes time to achieve and truly feel the good of true success”
This bird known as the Loon, is also known as the Maine state bird. Not sure how it received the name of Loon ( have to research this), but the sound it makes is so soothing, as you sit lake side and relax watching the sunset to the sound of the Loon. The Loon is a quiet bird that goes about it’s business very quietly, it doesn’t bother anyone as it swims around the lake with no worries in the World. As good as the Loon swims above the water, it swims very well below also, you see him in this picture here and as you take the shot, he will duck under water and swim to the other side of the lake, like a fish beneath the water. The Loon and the Eagle as well as a few Herring, are what I saw most of as I camped for a week in northern Maine, mixed in with a Moose one morning at 4:00 am. I was woken one morning by some splashing outside my tent, but as I slowly opened the door, as to not alarm what was out there, I saw a Moose splashing water on himself/herself, wish I could of taken a picture, but didn’t want to startle the Moose with the flash, as it wasn’t light enough to take the shot without it. We all need to take a break every once in a while in a place where peace and serenity are everywhere, We all want to go to the exotic places where there are way to many others with the same idea, to me this is no way to totally relax, this could also be a big reason why there is way too much ugliness in our Society today? When most go south for the beaches and heat, I go north for cool and the mountains and around these mountains is where you find the peace and serenity, front and center all around you.
Like I said the Loon is a quiet bird that goes about his/her business and doesn’t bother anything around it, so why then the name of the Loon? I can think of a few of the species of the Humans that should have the name the Loon, simply because some are just a Lunatic, that will harm and hurt you, without thinking twice about it. We should all be like the Loon and enjoy everything that is around us, without trying to hurt others, in order to try to control everything around you.We all at one time or another have been a Victim, or we have Victimized someone else? It could be something simple like giving the finger as someone cut in front of you on the road, or maybe you got angry and punched someone in the face breaking their nose, or maybe even mentally like, not acknowledging someone, that just wants to be a friend? Either way you have been a creator of a Victim, or maybe you have been the Victim of this similar behavior? Until we all treat each other with respect and dignity, this ugliness will never go away, we are the real Loons or lunatics here as we walk our paths of this journey through life, because the Maine state bird known as the Loon, is a peaceful bird that soothes you with it’s sounds as the sunsets on the lake.
This picture is so peaceful on so many levels, the calm water of the lake making the travel of the Loon easy across it’s journey, then the Loon just swimming along as peaceful as can be and unless you were looking out into the lake, you would never of saw him. This is what peace and serenity is all about, this is how to totally relax and wipe your mind clear of all the negative thoughts. As you sit in your chair lakeside and watch the sunset, listening to the soothing sound of the Loon, Then clearing your mind of all the ugliness, this is how to totally relax and as you relax, with all the pressures of everyday escaping your body, you will fall quickly asleep, leaving you with real sleep and not just closing your eyes, so you can function at work the next day. This could be the answer to all of us in this Society and for the why of, how this ugliness has engulfed us all. We simply don’t take the time to truly relax and to truly get the rest we need, in order to function properly, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” why call this beautiful bird the Loon, when it is nothing but peaceful and bothers nothing along its journey”
” To totally relax is something we all need to learn and take the time to truly do”
” Negativity breeds this ugliness around us, time we all do our part and let the negative thoughts go once and for all”
” Instead of the name of the Maine state bird being the Loon, maybe something more peaceful would of been more appropriate”
We all dream of our own little piece of paradise and within this ugly Society of today, most would love to have this beauty and build a Log home smack in the middle. This Island is surrounded by a lot of natural beauty, no matter which direction you turn and look. It was nice to jump into the Kayak and go to these Islands and explore all they have to offer, but let me say that……..peace and serenity stands out more than anything.
Simply imagine yourself sitting on your Farmers porch which you built and attached to your log cabin, listening to the sounds of nature as you look out into the Lake before you. Then you see a Loon swim lazily by with no worry in the World, as the Loon goes by now you see an American Bald Eagle soar by overhead, but what you don’t realize is, they are both eyeing the same fish beneath the surface of the water. The Eagle so majestic and beautiful, soaring through the sky with the greatest of ease, then in one fell swoop he sweeps in for the fish, then fly’s away with the fish in his talons before the Loon has a chance to react, what a beautiful sight and you had a front row seat. The beauty never stops on your dream Island, as suddenly you hear twigs snapping to your right, Hmm!! What could it be? You slowly take baby steps in that direction to explore the noise, now your breathe not only goes silent, but the beauty you see takes your breathe completely away, it is a Moose about 50 yards away, you freeze and sit very still, in order to not startle him, to make him feel welcome to your little paradise. Now you wonder just what other kinds of beauty still left for you to see, but your in no rush as eventually, all the beauty will become your norm for as long as you want it to.
Now that you seen a taste of the beauty around you, you can get back to work fixing up your cabin inside and gathering wood to chop, split and stack for the fire to cook and be warm in the chill of the night. Once you are set with the chores, time to grab the fishing pole, to catch the fish special for your dinner with time to relax and unwind. As you sit and relax, your mind starts to think about what tomorrow will bring? Maybe cultivate the soil around, so you then can grow some fresh vegetables, to go with your daily dinner. There is so much to do in order to set up your paradise, you never give it a second thought as the beauty around you, simply makes up for the work each and every day.
We see all the ugliness within our Society and after one month in your paradise, full of peace and serenity, it becomes very easy to forget there is any ugliness at all anywhere. We all walk a path through this journey of life, but if we don’t find our own space to unwind and relax, then this ugliness will forever consume every fiber within our bodies, leaving us without truly seeing any real beauty that may be around us.

” The Eagle soars with the greatest of ease as it is quiet like the Stealth Bomber.
” having a cabin in the middle of no where may be some work at times, but you never think of the work only see the beauty around you”
” Being one with Nature is much better than any therapy you may receive”
” When life gets you down, it is this paradise that brings you back up and ready for the next chapter”
