40-day journey well worth any sacrifice

 

 

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

 

With yet another Lenten season upon us and as the 40-day journey has begun with us going to church and having the ashes placed on our foreheads, let us all sacrifice something within our lives much the same as Jesus did, showing our faith in the Lord and we haven’t forgotten what he did for us all when he walked his journey here with us.

Jesus also walked this 40-day journey and was confronted by many a temptation, with the biggest temptation coming from Satan himself. We like Jesus get tempted by the power of temptation many times through this journey but as Jesus kept the faith in his father as well as himself, showed to us all that even with the power of temptation bearing down on our souls, when we stay true to who we are when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, we to can overcome all temptation and no matter how hard we struggle, we can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger and reach for the stars as there is no force strong enough to conquer us as we move forward, just as Jesus did throughout the 40-day journey.

The Lenten season is one of the most special times of the year, but if you have lost all faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, have become a non-believer in any kind of higher power,  then this time of year will have you wondering with no direction and susceptible to any kind of temptation that may come your way. Temptation is a very powerful force that will control everything in its path, yes it can suck you in but it will also spit you out just as fast and it really does not care for the condition it may leave you. We all will be tempted by each other as well. we see one with a lifestyle you dream of, then wonder why you can not have the same? We may try but then end up with much more issues then we can handle, when we just simply be who we truly are, sacrifice when we need to move forward better, so we then can have the strength to resist all temptation that may knock us down and keep us stepping backward instead of moving forward.

Temptation is quite simply Satan trying to take control of us all as well as everything else within this world, temptation at times will come with a sugar coating surrounded by whip cream and cherries, it will promise us the world but never deliver on its promise. When we stay true to who we are, resist all that the temptation may bring to us, never lose the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we can resist and conquer all that temptation may bring to us, so we may prosper and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned for us all. You can clearly see within this society of today, that there are so many that have given in to temptation, so many that have lost the faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ and because of that we are all traveling in so many directions, that we all have lost our way and there is no GPS made that will bring us back in the right direction, only Jesus himself can do this, but as we have let Satan control us through the temptations, we do not even give Jesus a thought, let alone even having any faith at all.

So as we walk yet another 40-day journey through lent, let us walk it with a purpose, let us walk it with meaning, as we sacrifice as Jesus did, learn that when we resist the temptation that not all is lost and the world will not end, as with the total belief in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, we can get back to who we truly are, we can get back to walking our paths with confidence, so this journey through life will have a meaning once again, it will have a true direction without wandering in circles, through temptation we become stripped from being of who we truly are and lose sight of what this journey is really about. With the total belief in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we then can truly find that path of righteousness, which Jesus told us about as he walked this journey with us, but right now as we have become overwhelmed with the power of temptation, we are all walking in so many different directions, that we have lost the sight of true reality which will lead us nowhere and further away from, having any faith in ourselves or Jesus Christ.

That old saying of, ” keeping up with the Jones” is so far from the truth, but as we become tempted to do so, we find that what may be good for one, may not be good for another. This journey is full of many paths as well as many temptations, but the only way to walk this journey confidently is, to be truly of who we are and to have complete faith in Jesus Christ, as he showed us in his 40-day journey, just how much he loved us, by the true sacrifice he made for each one of us. It is not about forcing oneself and your beliefs on each other, as it is totally about loving one another, no matter of what may cross our paths and when we walk our paths correctly, then this journey through life will be that of peace and happiness for us all, so as we take stock in our lives in this Lenten season, let us all throw out what we do not need and sacrifice these things, so we then can move forward with what is important, as we then follow the lead of Jesus Christ, away from all temptation, to be better moving forward and as we show respect, dignity, and love toward one another always, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The season of lent is one of sacrifice, much like Jesus did while he showed his true love toward all”

 

” During the season of Lent, we should take stock in our lives sacrifice what we do not need and move forward better with only what we need”

 

” 40 days and 40 nights to get back to who we truly are and move forward better and stronger”

 

” Temptation is a strong force but we are stronger when we stay true to who we are”

 

 

 

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

” Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of men”

Mt: 4:19

 

 

 

We of this society would rather live in frustration for what we can not do than to truly follow and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, for he will truly lead us and never lead us astray anywhere on our paths of this journey. We of this society think that success comes from stepping on another’s shine, but true success comes from true faith in Jesus Christ to lead us to the path of righteousness, so we all can have hope moving forward with strength and be true of who we are.

Jesus Christ did not come here for himself, he came here for you and me to prosper on this journey, but yet we all within this society have gone the complete opposite of what he taught us as he walked his journey. We of this society think that we can do better at everything, that we do not need help with anything, we also think we are smarter than all those who have walked before us? We are all so confused within this society that we have lost the faith of everything that is good, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward through all the hatred around us.

This world today is so full of ugliness and hatred only because we have lost all faith in not just ourselves, but lost all faith in Jesus Christ our savior. This quote today is more than just what you may think of as being a Fishermen when you become a fisher of men, you have opened your heart and soul to Jesus Christ, you truly believe with true faith that Jesus is good and will never lead you astray, so now as you follow Jesus with your heart, you can then lead others to the same promise land, that Jesus has led you to as well. No matter how troubled you think you are, with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you will always have the hope for a better and smoother path, as you walk through this journey of life.

No matter where you go throughout this planet, you can see all the corruption, you can see all the ugliness and hate, this is just how sad this society truly is today, it only goes to show just how many have lost all faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward and for those who still have the true faith, makes it that much harder for them to walk forward with confidence throughout this journey. Our so-called leaders can not truly lead anymore, even some who wear the cloth has lost this faith and have become corrupt with great ugliness, when all around us have become engulfed in this corruption, ugliness, and hatred, then where do we turn? We turn to Jesus Christ and reach down deep within, to truly feel his love for each of us, his love is always deep within our hearts and souls, just that we need to have complete trust in him, so we then can have complete faith and the hope will follow us all, all we need to do is, not only reach down deep within, but totally acknowledge Jesus, so he then can help us all no matter how troubled you think you are.

We all may walk our own paths, but the journey we walk them in is all the same, we all start out the same, then our paths bring us to different locations as some may intersect at different times, then we all have the same ending to this journey, but the biggest part is the fact that the time in the middle is where we all go wrong, especially when we lose touch with everything around us, lose touch with ourselves and most of all, lose touch with Jesus Christ our Savior. When we truly acknowledge Jesus and love him as he loves us, then no matter what trouble that may come to you, then our faith will never leave us as we will all move forward with the hope, to walk this journey in peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” A fisherman will catch the fish for all to eat and not starve, as a fisher of men will gather all in the love of Jesus to move forward to be better and stronger”

 

” Out of frustration we may do things not truly of who we are, out of love we can truly be of who we are”

 

” Corruption, ugliness and hatred are signs from Satan, as love comes from Jesus to help us grow in a positive way”

 

 

 

The power of the Holy Spirit

” But when he comes, the spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth, he will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming” JN 16:13 The Holy Spirit is a very powerful force, this force is within us all, as it guides us like Jesus does, to walk this journey in peace and as we strive for the path of Righteousness. Today is Pentecostal Sunday, this is the celebration of the finding of the Catholic Church, the very place we enter into the house of God. This is also the day that Jesus came to his Disciples and spoke to them, giving them their direction for which to travel, from here the Disciples went each their own way and gathering others, to speak the true words of Jesus Christ, these gathering places are what we know today as the house of God, or the Catholic Church, where we go today to pray and ask for his forgiveness of our sins. The power of the Holy Spirit operates totally on trust, the trust we have of ourselves and all those around us, in a perfect world the power of the Holy Spirit is alive and well within our souls, when we trust in our selves and trust each other always, but unfortunately within this society of distrust, the Holy Spirit lies dormant within us, as we never give it a chance to shine within us. Trust within this society is our biggest disconnect, without the trust we struggle to move forward with confidence. We become so lost within the clouds of our judgments, we then try to move forward with no direction, with no trust we then become defiant and let the power of denial enter within us, as the Holy Spirit lies dormant within us, through denial we then lose all sight of what reality is, to which we then try to make up our own, which a lot of times, has us wandering this journey, instead of truly walking this journey with confidence. Pentecostal Sunday is a celebration of life for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, it is a time for us to rediscover Jesus Christ, as we get back to truly feeling that Holy Spirit that is within us. When we think we can’t do something and like a miracle, we suddenly are doing what we thought we couldn’t, that is the power of the Holy Spirit, through the trust of ourselves and the Holy spirit, Jesus speaks to us without talking, as then what we thought was impossible, suddenly becomes very possible and now, we walk with confidence on our paths of this journey through life. The trust goes both ways between us and Jesus, just as the trust goes both ways between us and all those around us. The Holy Spirit may seem like a Magician doing his magic, but it is more like when we have that AH HA!!! moment, when one minute we seem like we can’t do something, than the next minute we are doing it with confidence, as all comes together in harmony, so we than can walk our paths of this journey, not just with confidence, but in peace and happiness always. ” The power of the Holy Spirit is deep within all our souls, we just have to acknowledge it to truly feel it’s true power” ” Pentecostal Sunday is the birthday of the Catholic Church, where we all gather to listen as Jesus speaks to us and guides us to the path of righteousness” ” The Holy Spirit is the magician of our souls and with it’s power we can do anything we want to do” ” With the trust of ourselves and of each other, the power of the Holy Spirit will always be there with it’s magic, as we do anything we want to do”

May the weight of the world be not a burden anymore

With yet another season of Lent and this being the blessed Holy week, if you look deeply into this picture and have complete faith in Jesus Christ our Savior, then you can see the face of Jesus Christ wearing his crown, that he wore, while he sacrificed himself, for us all, showing of how deeply he loved us all.

We all walk a path through this journey of life and with this journey comes many ups and downs, many triumphs as well as pit falls, many life events that not only will change the course of our paths, but will also bring much change to ourselves as well. A lot of times these events come to us not of our own, but in ways from another, just looking to control all that is around them? When these life events come to us and we do not take care of them properly, we then become silent along our paths, as we try to move forward while burying deeply our true feelings and emotions, we then forget of truly who we are and project forward someone who is truly of who we are not, as we are now hiding from one another, but because we are hiding from our selves, to ease the pain and hurt from the event that has come to us. When we hide deep within ourselves, we then totally forget about that little child within us, we cramp that child to the point that, we do not let that child grow properly within us, as we then do not grow properly within the world around us, when that child is healthy, we then are healthy as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

To let that child grow properly, then not only it will be healthy and productive, we then become healthy and productive throughout this journey. True when things happen our true instinct is to protective ourselves I get that, but the growth of that inner child is just as important as well. When we become scarred from a young age and suppress everything deep inside, that child then has no room to grow and as we think it is not effecting us, it it effecting us deeper than we think at that time, nobody ever wants to admit to failure, as when we do then we think all will see us as weak? We are never weak, it is our perception that makes us think we are. Even if our troubles come from another, or another thing, these things still harm us so much, that we will do anything to hide the pain and hurt from them, so we then suppress a big part of who we are, so deep within, that we forget of truly who we are. When we do hurt and when we have buried deeply of who we truly are, we also forget that having a voice will help heal us from our troubles, by voice I mean not yelling and screaming so others will think we are some crazed lunatic? but actually speaking out in a civilized way, so we than can stay in touch with our true feelings and emotions, while keeping the feeling of empathy close to our hearts, which help us heal from our troubles to move forward better and not stepping backwards, which will keep us hurting deep within.

That little child within yes is always there, whether we chose to believe or not, just like Jesus is always there with his love for us, whether we chose to believe and have faith in him, the real problem then lies within us and how we deal with each event or situation that may come to us. the solution is to stay in the moment, stay in touch with your true feelings and emotions always, never lose sight of who you truly are, regardless of what others may say or do to you. When you project yourself as strong, others will see you as strong, keeping the control hungry ones at bay, so you than can move forward better and stronger, with each step through this journey of life.

We don’t have to be silent and we don’t have to be too voice tress, we just have to be true to ourselves, stay true to our inner child, stay true to our real feelings and emotions, so we all than can be healthy, we all can then be respectful of one another without bringing harm to each other and as we all do this, we all can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

” Let the burden go as the weight becomes lighter, helping you move forward with ease”

” Holy week is a time to not just reflect of yourself, but reflect of Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within your heart”

” We all perceive the same things differently which may divide us if we do not stay true to who we are”

” We all have an inner child within us, which helps us to grow in a healthy way when we don’t abuse or neglect that child”

As Jesus walked this journey, so do we

” How can you say to your brother, Brother let me remove that splinter in your eye, when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?

*** LK 6:42a***

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and as we enter into the forty day journey of Lent, let us remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, showing just how deeply he loved us, while he to walked this journey, showing us all that yes, we to can share our love within, with each other.

Basically this quote talks of, before we can reach out to help another, we first need to help ourselves and over come all that we may be going through and struggling through. If you want to pull that splinter out of your brothers eye, then first clear the obstruction from your own, so you than can see clearly of what you are doing and as you see clearly, then the clouds of your judgments, will then be gone as the love within you, will then not only comfort you, but comfort your brother, as you remove the splinter, so he to can see clearly along this journey of life.

We all have our issues as we walk our paths of this journey, but yet we always see the faults of others and never see any faults of our own, we are always quick to point the finger towards others, but never point the finger at ourselves and accept any blame for whatever we do, others will surely pick up on our faults before we even recognize them ourselves. We are all guilty of this behavior, but we will never admit to any faults we may have.

A lot of times these faults will bring us great shame, shame that brings us great pain and when we hurt deeply inside, we then bury these faults deep within, so we than can try to move forward like there is nothing holding us back. So as we do this, we than never look at our own faults, instead we point out the faults of others, which then will stop us from truly getting to know one another, only forcing us to look at each other superficially, without truly looking deeply at what we see. There is always more than what we may see initially, just that we don’t truly want to see, cause then it will make us look deeper into ourselves.

Jesus as he walked this journey with us, showed us all that when we stay true to ourselves, truly feel our feelings within and feel the warmth of his love within us, then we to can not only love ourselves, but love all those around us, without any evil or unwanted thoughts. Nobody ever wants to show any fault, as this will bring out weakness and within a broken society as we are currently in, then any weakness will bring us more shame and pain, which we then will be open to becoming a victim of any kind, furthering the pain for which we already have.

Weakness brings pain and in a society of fakness, weakness makes you vulnerable over those who pretend to be strong, as they then seem to be more powerful than they really are. We never want to admit to our faults, so we than can bury them and seem strong to those around us, while we then point the finger of fault on those around us. We are all guilty of pointing the finger of blame, which does nothing but deflect any blame from ourselves, so we then never fix what we need to fix, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

So as we walk yet another Lenten journey, let us do so as Jesus did these next forty days, let us sacrifice as Jesus did for us, as we truly get back in touch with our true feelings, unbury those faults as we work to fix what we need to fix, then we can truly move forward better and stronger and treat each other with respect, to keep our dignity, showing our true love for each other, then we can walk confidently on our paths, through this journey of life.

” Lets walk this journey of lent and sacrifice as Jesus did for us, to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Faults can only be fixed when we stay true to who we are, without burying them like they are nothing but dirty laundry”

” The journey of lent is a forty day journey, to get back to who we truly are, to become better and stronger moving forward”

” Our issues do not have to define us on our paths, they should help us to be better and stronger moving forward”

The Kingdom of all Kingdoms

” 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” 

The most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

 

” 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”.

JN: 6;51

 

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”

 

The true Righteous need no Fan fare

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

” Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the Righteous”

 

*****LK 14:14

 

 

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”

 

Why do they call it the Loon???

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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”

 

The Thin Ice of Political Correction

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We within this Society with the Political Correction of today have become so weak, that we are not only afraid to say what we truly mean to each other, but we all have become someone for which we truly are not. we pussy foot around all the real issues, just to stab each other in the back and we have been doing this so long, that we really don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Just look at the ones in Public office that we vote for, they say what we want to hear, then do the complete opposite when they get into office, now we have someone like Donald Trump running for President and he speaks his mind, as he don’t believe in Political Correction, so we then think he is wrong and a nut case, simply because we have become so weak, that we don’t want to hear the actual truth and find out just how screwed we are within this Society.

Political Correction goes against everything that built this Country into the power house it was, now because of it, this Country has weakened greatly and if we stay this course, America will change greatly, to which we true Americans will not like the change and the road that we are currently on. This Political Correct road we are on now, has us all afraid to hear the real truth and pull back from walking our path through this journey of life, with strength and confidence, to be better as we move forward.

Right no within this Country, our Fore Fathers that made this Country great with their hard work, are turning over in their Graves, with the way we have latched onto this Political Correction. The movement that Donald Trump started with bringing out the real truth, has become even stronger, as he is not only speaking the truth, but he is saying what a lot of us want to say, only we are afraid to say it, because of this Political Correction. The only problem with Donald Trump and the way he speaks the truth is, he is a bit rough around the edges and we really don’t know just how to handle it, simply because we are weakened by this Political Correct Society for which we live.

Change comes to all of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, the problem lies with each of us as we, don’t really handle change to well, sometimes we tend to take the easy way, only because we have become too lazy to put the work in and let true change take it’s course, so we can be better and stronger moving forward. The biggest problem with this Political Correction is each one of us within this Society, as we all have become so lazy to put the work in, that we have become weak and are afraid of any truth, whether good or bad. instead of Political Correction, let’s get back to the days of constructive Criticism, which will make us stronger moving forward, Constructive Criticism is a way for us to handle the truth and help us accept change better whether good or bad.

constructive Criticism is the best way for us in handling any truth of anything, plus it keeps our true feelings and emotions alive and in the for front of who we truly are. With Political Correction we become fake and hide our true feelings and emotions, leaving us with zero empathy of not only ourselves, but zero empathy for each other, as we can see with the groups like ISIS we see today. With this Political correction we have lost totally of just how our self esteem truly works, because with no self esteem, we then have no Hope and Faith of who we truly are. Hope and Faith go together, with no hope there will never be Faith, just like with no Faith there will never be any Hope for any of us, Jesus taught us all this when he came and walked his journey with us, just that we within this Society are so far removed from those days, we forget and have no Faith in Jesus himself. When we have complete Faith in Jesus, not only will we have complete in ourselves, we will have complete Faith in each other, leaving us with plenty of hope, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Hope and Faith go together like peanut butter and jelly, without either we will never be true to our selves or one another”

” Political Correction has not only made us all weak, it has totally turned us against each other”

” Constructive Criticism is a way for us to accept the truth better, making us all stronger moving forward”

” The thin ice of Political Correction has us all walking on egg shells around one another”
