Faith in the journey, will give you hope moving forward.

” He said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied”.

Mt 14:19c-20

It has been said that…… ” when life gives you lemons make lemonade”, well too many lemons and you will pucker in distaste, too much sugar and now you get a sweet tooth, but when all is mixed correctly, now you can drink and enjoy. This journey through life is kind of like the lemonade, true life will throw you many curve balls, life will have it’s ugliness and bumps that will leave scars and bruises, but when you walk it correctly the journey will have many paths for you to be within peace and happiness always.

Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey here with us, he taught us many things as he shared the love in his heart with each of us, He sacrificed himself, was beaten and died on the cross for each of us, as his love for every one of us never died, his love lives within all our hearts always and forever. Jesus Christ our Savior walked this journey and lead us from temptation, to the light of the path of righteousness, he showed us that when we walk this journey correctly, we to can have eternal life as he did, even after he died at the cross for each and every one of us. Tjhe love of Jesus Christ will never die, it will always be there for us, we just have to keep complete faith in him as well as ourselves, so we can have the hope moving forward along this journey of life.

We of this society also walk a path through this journey of life, but unfortunatly somewhere along the journey we lost our way into the house of God, we become afraid to walk through the doors of the house and because of that and over time, our hearts have become cold and the warmth of Jesus’s love has been buried deep within our souls. Yes the love is still there and will never leave us, we just have to acknowledge it and it will come back to us and welcome us with open arms. This society and because we have strayed away from Jesus , has brought us deeply into the darkness of Satan, with much ugliness and hatred all around, has shown us that, when we give into temptation, we can become overwhelmed and suffer pain so deep, that the hurt will bury the love deeper, just so we can try to move forward along our paths, but as we walk our paths the pain is always there unless we address it correctly, so it can leave us healthy and strong, as our hearts then get refilled with the warmth of Jesus Christ.

We the people with our actions are all a fault for not visiting the house of God and until we accept our own accountability for that, the hatred and the ugliness will never leave us and we may truly never feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts, as our paths of this journey becomes more bumpy with more chances of bruising us even deeper, will keep us from the peace and happiness and as the light within the path of righteousness stays dark, keeping us deep with the darkness of Satan, and within his power and control that leads us into nothing but destruction. At the last supper of Jesus Christ with his disciples, he broke the bread saying, ” this is my body to be given up to you”, then passed the wine saying, ” this is my blood”, when you visit the house of God and accept the bread and wine within you, this is the love of Jesus that fills your heart and soul, so you then can spread this love with each other, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life in peace and happiness always, with the love of Jesus within us we then can move forward out of the darkness and into the light of the path of righteousness as we saw it, when Jesus had showed it to us, then with the true faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, we then can have the hope to move forward in strength and peace always.

” The road may be dirt and the mountain before us may look tall, but with the love of Jesus within us nothing will keep us from being of truly who we are”

” Sometimes we have to get through the darkness in order to truly see the light”

The flow through this journey of life

” God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life”

Jn 3:16

 

Just as the creek flows down off the mountain, we to flow along our paths on this journey through life. The creek will encounter obstacles to overcome on its journey, so do we encounter obstacles as we walk our paths of this journey. The journeys may differ, but the concept is the same, unlike the creek we the people take so much for granted along our path, as one is the true beauty all around us, there is so much beauty, but as we become so engulfed in the ugliness and the hate, we then become someone for who we truly are not and bury deep within who we truly are, as well as our true feelings and emotions.

This journey through life for all of us will have the same beginning as well as the same ending, but what lies in between determines on the path you choose to walk, some paths will have many bumps and pitfalls that will knock you down, which then will be determined by the way you get up from the many falls, some paths may be well-groomed, which then doesn’t prepare you for the pitfalls, but we still have to work hard along our paths in order to make this journey well walked.

The birds singing their many beautiful songs, the vegetation so alive and vibrant, feeling the true heartbeat of this planet Earth, some of the most beautiful things around us. Each one of us sharing our love and empathy that is within us with each other, this is the most precious thing we have, but yet as we get so engulfed with all the ugliness, we lose this as our hearts go so cold. The beauty of Mother Nature is beyond beautiful, it has the power to heal us from our troubles when the daily grind has us in its clutches, escape within Mother Nature and feel the weight of the grind simply melt from your body. When you become engulfed in your routine, doing the same thing day in and day out, escape within Mother Nature and see new things, the type of things you will never see in your daily routine. We all need to escape the grind that is life from time to time, as this is what heals us and helps us become better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The journey is supposed to flow like the creek down the side of the mountain”

 

” Mother Nature is more beautiful, its power can change us all moving forward throughout this journey of life”

 

” The journey up the mountain can seem like a lot of work, but it is work that soothes us from our daily struggles when we look deeply into all the beauty around us”

 

 

Not Government but self Govern

senate

 

Government whether State, local or Federal and with the way they can’t even come together on anything, is simply a bad example on how to unite for the rest of us and we are supposed to look up to them? Maybe if we learn how to self govern and not depend so much on any government, cause it is quite obvious that these so-called leaders care nothing for us, as they are all about themselves and their agendas. I have worked in the foodservice business for 39 years before I changed careers, I have worked with many different kinds of people, like religion, ethnicity, color, and nationality, since 1998 I have been saying we are in an ” all about me society”. What I mean is we were losing our empathy and love of one another as we only cared for ourselves, now this change was coming a lot earlier than this, but it was becoming really noticeable then. Then you add in the fact that there were broken homes at every turn along this journey, homes where there is only one parent where the child needs both parents to truly learn and grow moving forward, these parents split because they grow apart, but there was once a time that two parents took their marriage vows seriously, like death do us part, within this society, it’s more like til we grow tired of each other. The parents of today only think of themselves and it is the child who ultimately pays the price, it is the child who grows up into a society feeling incomplete because they were not taught the right tools or brought up in a healthy environment. True you can have one parent who shows love for their child, but the child needs it from both parents and both parents who stay together through thick and thin, there are so many lessons lost with only one parent, that the child then becomes incomplete as they grow into a society of many.

These children then grow and attend schools with other children, some get Bullied, some become the Bully, some learn to walk alone as others will do anything to just fit in, as these children get older they then think that they know everything and stop listening to others around them, so they then shut down and pull back from others around them, leaving them all alone and hiding within themselves. Now especially within a one-parent household, I get that the parent may work two or even three jobs to make ends meet, but that is no excuse to ignore the biggest responsibility of, caring for that child that you have created. Sure there may be a strong single parent, but for a child to grow properly and healthy, they need both parents as each one brings different elements to the teachings. A child is like a sponge as they grow, and whatever kind of environment they are in as they grow will become the environment they move forward into. If the child then alienates themselves from others, they then bury their true feelings of love and empathy deep within as now their hearts become cold, because, with no contact with others they do not know how to truly feel, we all have our issues as we walk our paths through this journey of life, but in order to self govern ourselves, we need contact with others, to make that governing complete.

There were many life events that have and will come to us as we walk this journey, but if we never get taught properly as we grow, we will never be ready for any of these events, we then will form our own ideologies, we will tell ourselves over and over these ideologies are the way of life and then right or wrong then live as if they are real, for many years now, children have not been taught properly of right and wrong, so within this society of today it truly is showing, just that now we as a society are living among all the ugliness and hatred from it all. Throughout history and throughout all our lives from the beginning of Mankind, each society has had their issues, just that now within this society and through all the technology we have, these issues have become so overwhelming, that we do not know where to start fixing all the issues before it becomes too late. I have a good idea, how about self-governing, instead of relying on any other government that wants nothing more than to control each one of us at every step of our paths.

There are many parts of this journey that have brought us many issues, some of these issues has brought much pain to us all, but as we try to move forward from the pain we also bury deep within a big part of who we are, Sometimes it is okay to glance back into the past to see the error of our ways, so we can fix what we need to fix, but when we get stuck in the past and never let it go, then our issues of today become even worse, which we then bury further who we are and become someone for who we truly are not, so we can try to move forward with no pain from the issues. With the pain and being of not who we truly are, we then will do things we normally would not, we let ourselves become brainwashed to whom or whatever makes us feel comfortable, which we then let the whom or what control us, as now we think everything is all okay? Now this explains perfectly what is going on today, with all the ugliness, hate, control, and greed that is all around us. We are all stuck within the past, instead of just glancing back, so we can fix what we did wrong in the past and move forward today better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” There is a difference between a Government and self govern, we just have to listen and be taught correctly what the difference truly is”

 

” A society scorned leaves the people within that society hurting with real pain and becoming someone for truly who they are not”

 

” A child is like a sponge as they grow up and whatever environment they are in will become their life as they are older”

 

 

 

The path through the journey

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, The paths are not always smooth like silk, nor are they as beautiful as a Rose on a sunny day. There will be many trying times that bring the clouds and the darkness, that makes the path hard to navigate with each step, we need to take one step at a time and feel our way around each corner, but one thing that is for sure, the darkness will never last and the light is always in front of us when we keep the faith so the hope will help us move forward always, with the strength to be better with each step.

Sometimes we need the darkness so we can see more clearly of what is truly around us, the darkness brings us to appreciate everything more, not take for granted all that we may have, the path can only be smooth for so long, only when it appears to be smooth we then get stuck in the comfortable rut that may have us find this fake reality, then there are these life events that may come to us, some will try to knock us down and disrupt our journey, while others will simply pass with little trace, we do not know it at the time, but these events can help us move forward better and stronger, just in the heat of the event we become lost and totally lose sight of who we truly are.

All the paths through this journey of life are not magical and do come with some work, just that we have to work as we go, so we can smoothen the path with each step. We should never take anything for granted throughout this journey, only because nothing ever lasts unlike what the visions within our dreams may show us, dreams may be something that has us escape our reality for the short term, but as the dreams come from our inner self, could they possibly help us heal from our realities?  It is okay to dream to help us escape, because when we put in the work then just maybe our dreams will help us walk our paths of this journey better and stronger.

This journey through life will bring us to many crossroads, many other paths that will bring us to a world of temptation, but when we stay true to who we are, then the temptations of these will pass like the darkness and the storms that may come to disrupt us along our paths, this journey comes with many twists and turns that will make us dizzy if we do not pay attention, but with the faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, the hope will always be right there in front of us, to keep us happy and healthy throughout this journey, with true happiness coming to us as we walk the path we chose. This journey through life will throw everything at us, even the kitchen sink, but when we stay true to who we are, no matter what is thrown at us and with the hard work we put into our paths, the path we chose to walk will always be as smooth as we want it, because to us and within our hearts, no matter how rocky the road is, the path through this journey of life, will always be as smooth as silk and be as beautiful as the Rose on a sunny day.

 

” Like the darkness, the storms will pass, bringing us into the light and away from any temptation that may be around the corner”

 

” The magic of the path is totally within our power if we truly believe and stay true to who we are”

 

 

quiet solitude journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Within this fast-paced society it is very hard to find quiet solitude, but now as this virus has reached around the world, leaving us all within the walls of our homes, the roads to all the journeys are empty, with that quiet solitude at every turn. Life’s journey has many ways that will test us, it will trip us up and make us stumble which some will fall then struggle to get back up, as others will brush off the dirt and keep moving forward. Life’s journey will throw everything even the kitchen sink at times, but it is how we react to the journey with our actions, that will determine just how far we go and if we truly reach the destiny we set out to reach.

Right now as we are all secluded within our homes, the streets around us have that quiet solitude, the virus has us all being held hostage within our homes, but are we really getting back to who we are, or are we glued to our social media and ignoring those we hold close? We can look at this pandemic in two ways, one we can see truly what socialism is all about, not being able to travel freely or going to the grocery store and what we want is never there, with the Government controlling our every move, or we can look at it as getting back to who we are, taking a pause at was once a fast-paced society, to slow things down so we can get back in control with ourselves, so we can enjoy this journey with each step.

When we move at speeds unknown this journey will pass us by and we will never know what it was we passed, it is good to slow down and enjoy what is around you from time to time, this will help us from losing control, this will help us to never lose sight of who we are, so we then can always stay in touch with our true feelings and emotions. I get that social media is a good way to stay in touch with each other, but at what cost will it be towards us? We will lose that true interaction with each other, that interaction that helps us grow stronger and better with each step. That interaction we get from social media is fake, some may make themselves out to be something they are not, only because they hide deep within reality, they hide in plain sight, just that the plain sight is them behind their technology devices.

It is perfectly okay to take time to see what is around you, you need not go 100 miles per hour all the time, because at that speed you will never see the true beauty that is around you and you will only see the fake reality within your social media. Take time to step outside your comfort zone, step within the world of mother nature and relax with the sights and sounds of her beauty, yes she can unleash her fury also, but she has much more beauty, you just have to slow down to truly see it. True there may be many different viruses that may cross our paths, some we may not be able to stop, but with the true faith in Jesus Christ, there will always be hope for us all to hold to, so as the viruses take their hold, they will never last. Sometimes a virus may seem like it has a journeys life all to itself, as it works it’s way to us all, simply look into the past of Mankind and you shall see that other societies have also had some kind of virus spread within them, why you may ask? The most likely answer is that never-ending feud between God and Satan, God wants nothing but to bring us good, the light and love for us all, as Satan will only bring us the darkness of pain, destruction, hatred and ultimately death by walking into the fires of Hell, so as we sit within our homes, let us get back to prayer, get back to that true faith in Jesus Christ, so with the hope and our common sense, we together can put an end to this virus, from taking on a life of its own, as we then move forward within this journey of life.

 

” With our lives on hold and everything closed around us, let’s get back to who we truly are, get back to the faith with our hope ending the spread of this virus”

 

” The roads of a fast society may be jammed up, but the roads of a slower society will always be free and clear and open for all travel”

 

” Socialism never works in a society, it will have you secluded and trapped deep within your being”

 

 

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”

 

 

 

 

The many Gaps throughout this journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

These rocks have many gaps with one main gap, which is the one that the water flows through and down forming the falls, no matter where we may look, there are many gaps all around us, with the biggest gap being between each one of us also known as the ” Generation Gap”. The Generation Gap can be so very far apart or it can be closer than we would like, but none the less there is a Generation Gap of the entire Human race whether we learn to accept it or not?

The Grand Canyon has many big gaps from one side to another, just as we as well like, the younger generation and the golden year’s generation, now unlike what some may want to accept, those in their golden years are definitely more experienced along this journey, now true that they may not have all the answers as they also might not have taken the same path through this journey, but also very true that they also have walked this journey and have seen many moons, as well as many sunsets and sunrises as well. Throughout this journey of life for some reason or another, we tend to think we ourselves have all the answers and that we know more than the other and with that, we then think that even with the path we walk and that no other has walked the same path, that we know everything and the rest need to learn from me? There is so much we all need to learn of this journey if only we could set aside our differences, then just maybe we all could coincide as we walk our paths, through this journey of life in the peace and serenity we all so deserve.

There are so many Gaps from time to time we will step within them instead of over them, some of these Gaps are quite deep and can hurt very deeply as well, which is why it is just as important to pick ourselves up properly, or the pain will overcome us so much that, we may never walk through this journey correctly because we then let the pain dictate how we walk, instead of us dictating just how we step on our paths of this journey through life. For us to step over the gaps is a lot different than the water flowing down the gaps and over the rocks, then down into the pool below, now we may not be able to flow like the water over the falls, but we can flow just as easy along our paths when our steps along the path we chose, don’t become too spread out and force us to get out of sync with what is around us.

The Waterfall of life so gracious as it flows along the path of its journey, one of the many beauties we can see when we step outside and take an adventure, then as we see all of its beauty, we then can heal ourselves of all our troubles and pain, so we can move forward to be better and stronger always throughout this journey, there are many gaps throughout this journey, it is when we let the gaps dictate the way we walk our paths, that makes the journey a bit rougher than it should be, but when we dictate how we step over the gaps, then it is as easy as one foot in front of the other.

 

” The Generation Gap could be wide or it could be narrow, so no matter what we all still need to coincide to move forward better and stronger”

 

 

” The Grand Canyon has many Gaps as it is the Gaps that stand out through all else”

 

 

” The beauty of a waterfall within the mountains is as beautiful as it gets with no question”

 

” With the many Gaps along the journey never let the gaps dictate of just how you walk your path”

 

 

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

Bill Koch owns a roughly 90-acre estate known as Elk Mountain Lodge near Aspen. He listed it in 2016 for $80 million, but has since taken it off the market.

” 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 Journey to the top

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The journey to the top can encompass many things, it’s not just hiking within the wilderness and reaching the summit of a mountain, it is also about reaching the pinnacle of your career and working your way to the top within the company you work. Both can and will be a lot of work, one being the hike up a mountain will drain you both physically and mentally, while depending on where you work it can involve more mental than physical? No matter which journey you are on, it will bring you great rewards when you achieve all that you want to achieve, especially when you reach the summit and not only breathe in the fresh air, but totally take in all the true beauty all around you.

The journey through the wilderness on your way to the summit of the mountain will hold so much beauty around you, that it keeps all your senses in tune to everything like the birds singing from tree to tree, the branches whistling as they sway in the breeze from the air, your sense of smell coming alive as the fresh aroma of the fresh air the plants and the wildflowers make your nose tickle with envy, your ears seem to be more active and amplified as all the sounds within nature have them totally in tune with all that is around you and will have you hear even a twig snap from a good distance away, then as you look out at what you are seeing, your eyes then will have you more in focus with all that you may come across as you walk the journey to the summit of the mountain and as you reach the summit of the mountain, now you really see clearly for many miles all around you.

The journey within the path you take in your career choice is a whole lot different than the journey to the summit of the mountain, the drive you have within you so you can work to reach the pinnacle of your career is similar but different as you work hard in your career, you now lose out on the true beauty around you, as you focus solely on the job and reaching the summit within the company you work. Now we all can not reach the summit within our career choices, but we all can reach the summits of the mountains we chose to walk a path upon, within our careers and with all our hard work, now we become too tired to venture out within an adventure, we then stay within our inner circles without getting out within nature, seeing all the same things day after day, keeping the same routines from week to week, then not only taking everything for granted but totally forgetting that there is a whole lot more out there and a whole lot more beauty around us as well. True that we need the journey within our careers to make ends meet, but if we do not acknowledge all the other journeys also, now the path we walk through this journey of life, just may become boring and have us wandering, instead of actually walking with confidence, all the little journeys within this one big journey.

The journey to the top of anything can and will come with some work on our part, but that’s just it, we need to work in order to reap all the benefits no matter what the journey for which we walk. Nothing comes easy and nothing will come freely, which is why we work hard, so we then can reap all the benefits and see all the true beauty that is all around us, at every turn along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The journey to the top comes in many different ways and will always reward us in just as many ways as well”

 

” There is much beauty all around us with the key being we just need to focus and truly look deeply into what we see”

 

” When we are out of focus then no matter what we look at will never be clear for us to see”

 

 

Death we can not avoid

Death is one of those facts of life that will affect us all no matter where we are along our paths of this journey, whether death comes to ourselves personally, a loved one or something around us, death will change you in more ways than you really know.  Death is something that is permanent, you can not get it back as now the soul-deep within you, will leave you cold and lifeless. Death affects everything around us also, the plant life is just as alive and vibrant as we are, as they will face the cold dark days of death. Animal life no matter the species as alive as they are will face the dark cold days of the death, whether we accept death or not, it will bring us into the dark cold days of lifelessness and the time when this journey through life has come to an end.

Sometimes death will come along sooner than later for whatever reason? There are many diseases that may overcome us like the big one known as Cancer, then there are things known as natural disasters that will bring a tragic end to the journey also, but the biggest thing that I may never wrap my head around is, why the hell do we hurt each other whether physical or mentally and sometimes to the point of, making us either someone for who we truly are not or even worse………… we leave another in our wake with their cold, dark, lifeless bodies, lying there in a motionless state.

Within this fast-paced society of today, we are so busy getting busy, that we never take the time to get busy exploring and actually live our lives along the path that we have chosen. There is so much to our paths that we never truly enjoy it, which then leads us to a journey that really hasn’t been that well-traveled.  Some may never even step outside their comfort zone and really get busy exploring what is around us, so we can be at peace and learn all that we can, instead of being stuck in one place just getting busy being busy.

We can either get busy exploring and truly being in touch with our true feelings, or we can get busy dying and never being in touch with anything, there is a whole lot more to this journey through life, that if we do not get busy doing anything, then this journey will never become a journey as Jesus Christ showed us while he had walked this journey here with us and taught us that, through love along this journey then we can actually stop and pause to look at a journey traveled correctly. We only walk one path through this journey, so why not do it correctly, instead of stepping on another man’s shine and messing it up, as we then walk our paths with a purpose, while we are surrounded by the peace and serenity, of a journey well-traveled.

 

” Get busy living or get busy dying the choice is ours to make throughout this journey of life”

 

” Never step on another’s shine as that shine you may have scuffed up just might have been a great explorer of this journey”
