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”

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”

Re-focus on what is out of focus……….

Forest Flowers                    ” To focus on what is in front of you, puts other things out of focus when we don’t pay attention”

With this picture and the flowers in the foreground, you can clearly see where the focus is, but to focus on whats in front, puts the background out of focus and hard to see what is back there. To those who take professional pictures, it takes great patience to sit and wait for the right moment and get the best shot, but when they focus on their subject of interest, it puts all else out of focus.

Just like with picture taking, it also takes great patience for us throughout Mankind, to sit and wait then re-focus on whats important, so we can walk our paths of our journey of life, to be better and stronger moving forward. We all get caught up in the drama within this Society, then we have our issues brought on by different life events, with these events they come to us when we least expect it and usually from a source that is out of our control. these events will bring many issues to us as well as much pain and with this pain, we will hurt in many ways. This hurt will force us to become out of focus with everything we do, then we try to rid ourselves of the hurt to re-gain focus and we end up focusing on all the wrong things.

When we become out of focus along our paths of our journey, we try very hard to re-gain focus and a lot of times we over focus, which we then without realizing it, become something very different, from who we truly are. This journey through life is not that hard when everything simply falls into place, we then have great focus on everything around and see clearly all that is front of us, it is when the issues of our life come to us, that we then simply walk our paths out of focus and just wander aimlessly throughout this journey of life.

Jesus Christ came to us and walked his journey with a purpose, this purpose was to show and teach us just how to walk this journey, so we to can find the path of righteousness and we can also have purpose throughout our lives. When we have and find our purpose, then we can walk our paths of this journey with great focus on everything around us. It is when all the issues of these events come to us and control us, when we become out of focus and then simply wander aimlessly throughout this journey.

Life events happen to us either from our own ways, or from another that think nothing but bringing harm to us, most of the time these events happen when are at a young age, which we don’t know the difference between something of good, or something of bad. Either way they still bring us great pain and suffering, but we have a hard time in doing is, quite simply forgiving ourselves, even when it wasn’t truly our fault of the event that has happened. Walking our paths through this journey of life, is far from just a walk in the park, but when we stay in focus and truly forgive ourselves, yes we can find this same path of righteousness, that Jesus showed and taught us to walk. then we all can be better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

” true focus is more than just aiming a camera for the right picture, true focus helps us all throughout Mankind walk our journeys peacefully”

” To focus on all things equally, we first have to forgive ourselves so all the hurt from within will disappear, leaving us to be better and stronger along this journey of life”

The Eggshells of life

The Eggshells of life is a part of each and every one of us, it is how we deal with every situation and all our life events that we may encounter throughout our Journey of life.
These Eggshells will pop up when we least expect, they mostly pop up when we experience unknown territory along our journey, because it is when we experience the unknown, that we are most vulnerable and subject to pain that we may not be able to explain.
These Eggshells can hurt us in a couple different ways, one being physical like stepping on them literally, the other is mental, which affects us in ways we can’t explain, they effect us by our minds and our psychological sub-conscious, the sub-conscious is a part of our mind, that will control every fiber of our being if we let it, which is why we need to understand it, so we can control ourselves and not let it control us.
Alot of us through our lives, walk on these Eggshells in our everyday lives, cause we don’t want to understand certain things we do daily, we don’t want to upset those around us, cause we fear they will get violent, or maybe lash out at us, to give us more pain than we can handle, sometimes we may have so much pain in our own lives, we tippy toe around these eggshells, as to not create even more pain, as we walk on these Eggshells we tend to shut ourselves down emotionally, to protect ourselves from further harm.
Eggshells are two things in our lives on our journey of life, the actual cracking of the egg, to have whole eggs for breakfast, or the walking on eggshells that affect our psychological sub-conscious, when we are walking on eggshells, we are only protecting ourselves from any further harm that may come to us, but as we walk on these eggshells, we are not being true to ourselves and when we are not true to ourselves, it is very hard to be true to all that is around us.
Eggshells may not hurt us that bad physically, but when we walk on the emotional eggshells, they hurt us very deeply inside and affect everything we do, as we walk our path of our journey of life, when we stay true to ourselves and all that is around us, these eggshells won’t be as sharp and won’t harm us so deeply inside.

” Eggshells are a part of life, they can only harm us if we let them”

” Staying true to ourselves and all those around us, will make the edges of the eggshells not as sharp”

Take the “Bull” out of “BULL”ying……

We all have this trait of bullying within us, we all have been bullied as a young child, some more so than other’s, the part we have come to overlook is, the Bully is no different than each one of us.
A Bully is a person whether man/woman, that inflicts fear and takes control of the people around them, it just doesn’t have to be the school bully, that takes your lunch money, or forces you to do things in which you do not want to, A Bully is many things within our lives and even more often then not, is someone close to ourselves, A Bully isn’t just about being physical to inflict harm, the same harm can also be the verbal kind, which affects us by way of our mental side of us, this mental side of the abuse can be just as harmful than the physical side and can have longer effects on us throughout our journey of life.
A Bully can be the School Teacher to their students, it could be an older family member to their younger family, it could be a CEO of a company, abusing their power of authority over other’s, it could also be a public official over all in the community, the bottom line is a Bully is part of all of us and when we let these Bully traits consume us, then we ourselves become the Bully.
These Bully traits only consume us, when we are not true to ourselves, hide our empathy feelings and love of other’s and let the feelings of hate consume all our thoughts and actions, a Bully can be controled when we control ourselves and let our true selves shine, with our true feelings of empathy and love ahead of all else.
We all cringe when we hear all the reports of children committing suicide cause they are a victim of Bullying, we then push the blame to the Individual responsible for this tradgic event, what we should really be doing is, find out why this Individual did this and why did he act on this Bully trait we all have within us, this Individual has learned somewhere that being a Bully, they can control other’s around them, when we look to blame instead of reckcognizing this Bully trait, then we to are hiding within ourselves and not letting our true empathy and love of other’s shine when we need it the most.
We all as Humans hurt and we all have feelings and emotions, it’s when we hide all these that we then become untrue to ourselves and other’s around us, it is also then that we let all the negative traits within us come out, which does nothing but spread the hatred we now have in our Society, when we all stay true to ourselves, let our true empathy and love shine, is when our Society shines with good and forces this hatred to move on, as it can’t affect us anymore.

” a Bully can only control if we ourselves let them control our lives”

” love and empathy are more powerful than hate, we just have to give them a chance to show us”

The Clouded judgement

We all within our Society have suffered from having clouded judgement, these are choices we make out of just reacting, instead of taking the time to really look into what we are making a choice on.
Most of the time this clouded judgement comes from, a time in our lives that has harmed us and we are only trying to protect ourselves from further harm, this happens to anybody and it always happens without us being truly aware, of what we are doing.
There are alot of things going on inside our own bodies and the smartest of Doctors still have no answers, the Human body is the most complex thing anywhere on this Planet, we do things to protect ourselves from any harm and most of the time we don’t realize we are doing, our brain and our minds may black things out, that keep us from feeling pain, the things may still be in there, but we don’t acknowledge them, to keep the pain away, we all do this to some degree, so it helps us move forward on our journey.
We all have Life Events happen to us in one way or another, it is these events that shape our minds and brains, into ways we can’t explain in order to keep from the pain of the event, because we don’t understand the why’s, is the reason why we have these clouded judgments, which leads to us making poor choices, then we get caught up in this and continue as we are, cause we don’t want to except the reality of the situation to hide further, showing on the outside we are okay.
We as Human Beings may be unique to each other, but we are also the most complex of species on the Planet, alot of times we follow what we think is the norm, but what is really normal? What may be normal for one, is not the normal for another, even when someone is a leader and develops his followers, is his way really what you want? When we follow others, we do so not knowing truly what we are doing, which makes it more important to stay true to self, know and understand what is best for you, so as these events happen, we can fix the problem as they come, with the least amout of pain and harm to ourselves, as we do this we will find this clouded judgement and our bad choices will minimize greatly and we all will be more happier as we walk our journey of life.

” clouded judgement can only affect you if you let it affect you with bad choices”

” Humans may be complex, but we are also the smartest of the species”
