The dark of the light, with the light of the dark

Seriously think about this!!! We of this Society have wandered away from any kind of thinking about anything, we say we think about things whatever those things are? But because of the no more thinking part, we have lost all sense of any of the true common sense that is within all of us. We have become like puppets to an almighty puppeteer, when the master speaks we listen and when the master pulls our strings, we go in the direction of the pull, without any kind of a resistance. Nobody wants to lead, as all we want to do is follow, no matter of the direction we may go. We need more trail Blazer’s like those societies of the past, without them then all our futures look bleek and boring, with no excitement on the horizon.

In order to truly see the light, there is darkness to pass through, just as the light will never be constant,    for there is always a darkness that passes by, so we can come to appreciate all things, without focusing too much on one thing, which will help us become more well rounded as we walk our paths, through this ever changing journey through life. Through the light there will always be darkness, as change will never leave us, which makes it that much more important to, being able to adapt to everything equally and without giving up, so we never become a puppet and just follow, so instead we than become the trail blazer, like Jesus did when he came and walked his journey here with us.

It takes darkness so we can truly see the light, so we than can truly appreciate all that we do with every step of this journey. Even like within this picture, you have a dead tree trunk, with a flower growing out of it? There is beauty all around us, you just have to truly look deeply in everything, without simply glancing or skimming over the top and becoming superficial of everything around you. Our leader’s today within the walls of Washington DC and while they get so wrapped up within the ” Washington Power Game”, have totally lost sight of true reality and have become a puppet to their own cause, without thinking of the bigger picture, or even becoming a trailblazer, to truly lead as they should be doing, when they signed up, for the office they hold.

True these flowers may not be the most fragrant, or the most picturesque?  But these flowers in their environment and where they are, makes everything around them shine in the light, brighter then anything, this is the sign of a true leader, someone who gets the job done, someone who never looks for recognition, someone who shines no matter of how dark the light may be, someone no matter of the change, adapts to the change and moves forward better and stronger, so they can keep the brightness of the light, no matter of how dark the darkness may become. These leader’s are out there, just that within today’s society and all the darkness with all the ugliness, makes for it very hard to truly see anything, which shows of how important it is, to let the light shine as bright as it can, so the darkness doesn’t seem as dark as it truly is. The light of the dark is always there, so to truly see the light, you need to look past the dark and not focus on the dark, as to helping the darkness never look as dark as it truly is.

 

” Where there is darkness there will be light, just like with faith there will always be hope”

” Cut the strings of the puppet, to truly become the person that you truly are”

” there is always true beauty all around us, we just have to see past the dark to truly see the light”

” Everything we may see has a beauty of it’s own, just as with the darkness, there will always be the light”

A little Empathy of each other goes a long way………

” Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one”

*** Colossians 4:6 ***

 

 

Okay time for my little buddy to make another appearance once again. For those who don’t know, this is little eight year old Martin Richards, he was taken from this Earth by two deranged Individuals, that decided to bring tragedy to the Boston marathon, as they placed two bombs, with one at the finish line, right beside this innocent young boy. This sign he holds are his words and shows just how special this young man was, with what could of been a great life cut short.

Within this society we all walk our journey’s, there is way too much ugliness, drama and hatred of each other. A lot of it simply comes from the way we not only treat each other, but the way we speak to each other, just drive down the road and you will hear a whole different vocabulary than what you care to listen to. Some will be nice to your face when you are around, then when you turn your back, forget the niceness and out comes the slander.  people of today want nothing more than to see others fail, make mistakes, or even fall and become hurt………… as they totally forget that they themselves have gone through the same, just that they don’t want to admit to their flaws at all.

Look no further than our so called leaders within the walls of Washington DC. They not only back stab each other, but they back stab the ones who put them into office as well. Now that we actually have a President that is working for the people that put him there, those on the left will do and say anything, to denounce everything he does, the people that the President tries to put around himself, so he can do an even better job than what he is doing now, have been scrutinized, ridiculed and have had lies put in their mouths, by those on the left, who will stop at nothing, to bring down a seated President. Those on the left won’t even call our President a President, simply because they are so far in denial. that they have lost all sense of what true reality is. We can’t even get a Supreme Court Justice confirmed, without those on the left, doing anything they can, to stall and delay, the conformation, only to better suit themselves, instead of the good of this great country of America. In Washington DC it is all about playing the game of power, instead of actually doing the job, for which they were voted in to do. It is time for each of us Americans, at the mid term elections, to really send a message to those on the left and anyone else, that is so far in denial, of what true reality is, as they are now on the outside looking in.

We of this society need to do a better job at showing true empathy and love of each other, before it becomes lost forever? Or even worse, more of us Humans become victims of a senseless tragedy, as did Martin Richards, on such an ugly day. It is just sad that we rally together when we truly need to heal and become better along this journey, but yet 95% of the time, we don’t even acknowledge each other, let alone show any kind of love or empathy, which happens to be feelings, deep within each of us. It all starts at the top, with our so called Leaders, these are the ones that need to not only work together, but coincide in their environment, so as to not only make this country better and stronger, but make the lives of all Americans better and stronger as well. Plus all those that are looked at as role models within the sporting world, they need to simply shut up and play the sport, that they get big dollars to play, instead of opening their mouths and spewing their hateful opinions, of an elected official, for whom they don’t care for and even further, when you use the sport you play and receive big dollars playing, for a platform to protest, I challenge you to take some of your big dollars to the community you live and put your money where your mouth, so you can make a difference, instead of being nothing but a pain in the Ass, with your uncalled for protests, taking away from the sport you play.

 

” No more hurting people……………peace”

*** Martin Richards***

” The easiest thing we do but we make it the hardest, is quite simply the way we chat with one another”

” Instead of looking at one another with hateful eyes, let’s try looking and seeing the good within all those around us”

” Good will always win over evil, just that we as a society are too consumed with all the evil around us, that we can’t see clearly through the clouds of our judgments”

 

 

 

 

 

A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

” We are told Lord that it is a privilege to suffer on your behalf, may you receive glory in every season of my life, whether I am enjoying success or enduring sorrow”

Philippians 1:29

 

The New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump are kind of like this tree on a little Island, all by their selves, simply because they are alone with all their successes, with all around them doing nothing but hate on them, only because they themselves are too lazy to even try to achieve what they have. It is so much easier to just give up and not even try to achieve greatness, than actually putting in a hard days work, so not only to feel good of yourself, but you as well can achieve greatness, as do the New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump.

Success doesn’t grow on tree’s, you just do not wake up one day and ” Poof”…….. You are successful with piles of money, true success comes from very hard work and very hard practice, to make the the work turn into success. With hard work comes a lot of blood, sweat and tears and without them, your not truly working hard, not too mention with the hard work also comes great pain and pain that is, physical in nature, as well as a deep psychological pain that is deep within our souls. Nobody will actually welcome any kind of pain, which is why some will try to take the easy way out and hate on those that are successful, to try to make themselves seem better and more powerful than the ones, who actually have put in the hard work and practice, to be truly great at who they have become.

I can remember growing up as a young child and watching the New England Patriots, this was a team that, unlike today where they win more than they lose, the team back then lost more than they won, they had some great Individual player’s, but never actually had the team play great together, much like they do today, a huge part of that is the great culture that the coach has brought to the team, for the last twenty years. True Bill Belichek is responsible for this culture, but Tom Brady and his strong work ethnic, has become a staple of the team for the nineteen years he has been Quarterback of the team. Tom is forty one going into this season, he continues to defy Father time, but you can clearly see that, he works very hard each and every day, so he can stay on top of his game and with the hard work, comes all the success he has had through his career, But even with all Tom’s hard work, there is a small percentage of others that will stop at nothing to hate on him, simply because they themselves are too arrogant and lazy, to actually work as hard as Tom works each and every day.  Let the ” Patriot way” be a lesson to us all, when you work hard and have a great culture in which to learn, than just maybe all of us can achieve greatness, as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

President Donald Trump may be very wealthy, but that wealth didn’t just appear on his lap, he had to work hard at earning each and every penny of that wealth. Now some may make a ton of excuses, as to why they are not wealthy like him? but the bottom line is, they are more lazier than the President and do not want to put the work in. Jealousy will get you no where, as through jealousy only comes hate for all those around you. President Trump said before he won the election, that he would drain the swamp, he is doing just what he said, as well as a lot more. The swamp is really all the corruption within the walls of our Government here in America and if you are, as passionate as I in the world of politics, you can clearly see all the corruption, within the walls of Washington D.C. For which President Trump stands in the ocean alone, among a body of water full of sharks and he is doing a great job at fending them all off. Those on the left may hate on him more than those on the right, but they only hate on him, simply because he is making them look bad with his hard work, while they sit on there hands and continue their lazy ways of doing nothing, or keeping their campaign promises.

When we all work hard together, then yes we can make this society better and stronger, then societies of the past. Greatness never came from any kind of hatred, as hatred will only divide and separate, all that is around us. Hatred is the lazy mans way to try to move forward on their paths, while hard work will always bring you to true greatness, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger, while we all simply just get along in this society of divide, instead of attacking one another and achieving nothing, leaving us all with nothing  as well.

 

” A strong work ethnic will bring us to greatness, while the weak do nothing making them weaker moving forward”

” True greatness breeds strength, joy and happiness with success for all from the fruits of their labor”

” Hard work never comes easy, but it is always better than the alternative.

” The hard work will unite, without it we then will be divided”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working hard and moving up

” The best things in life are free, the air we breathe, the stars at night, the wonder of Human love, but the greatest gift of all is our salvation, purchased for us by Jesus Christ………….. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift”

2 Corinthians 9:15

 

Within today’s society of fast pace and full of technology that has made life easy for us all, we have also become lazy with our work ethnic, where we want the world to cater to us, but we do not want to work for what we want? Just like when we take a trek up a mountain, there comes work to get to our destination of the summit at the top of the mountain, yes you have to climb up hill and a lot of the up hills are very steep, as you climb quickly in elevation to get to the summit. Now to achieve the reward of the beauty and the great scenery at the summit, you first have to put in the work of climbing up a trail for which you trek.

Now I am not saying that all of us have lost that hard work ethnic that has made this country great, just that it is becoming instinct and needs to be fixed before it becomes lost for ever.  A good work ethnic is one that, when you start a job within a company, you are not afraid or not ashamed to start at the ground floor and work hard while you climb the ladder of success within that company, as you climb the ladder within that company, also comes the great rewards of pay raises, that simply shows you that, you are somebody of which others do notice your hard work ethnic within the job you do, not too mention of what it does to your spiritual being deep within your soul. This spiritual being is part of our DNA, our make up of who we truly are, this is what makes our self esteem grow, as we then feel good of ourselves, moving forward along the path we chose, through this journey of life.

We all want the toys of life, the material things for which we consume along this journey, but being lazy and not working a job, because we simply don’t like the job, will never have us achieve any success, so we than can buy whatever material item we wish to buy. Bouncing around from job to job, is no way to develop a good strong work ethnic, never mind of not only building a great foundation in your work life.

With a great work life and the starting on the ground floor of your life, is what completes us as a Human Being, we respect all the things around us more as we grow into this world, that little child within us grows better and stronger as well, which then has us on the exterior growing with a strong self esteem. Never think of your job as “work”, only work hard at what you do, so you than can move up the rungs of the ladder known as success, as you not only feel great inside, but it shows on the outside with your true actions, of who you truly are.

Starting out on the ground floor of life, or within our jobs is not a bad thing, nor should it be frowned upon, as it only builds strength, character and helps us grow inside and out, with that little child that is within us all, growing stronger and healthy year after year, as we walk this journey through life. In this country we have what we call the ” American Dream”? This is nothing more than all of us working very hard to achieve great success and when we achieve this great success, we then not only build a strong foundation and grow strong roots, we then accumulate the material things within this society. now sometimes with success we forget of who we truly are? we forget of that little child deep within our souls, which not only leads us to a little child with no true direction,  it will also lead us into a lifestyle of negativity, weakness and laziness, which then makes us vulnerable to all the ugliness we see around us today. With strength come happiness and with happiness comes peace for us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With strength comes happiness and with happiness comes peace”

” We all want great success along this journey, we also have to work hard to achieve this peace and happiness”

” Work ethnic is within each of us, just that some have refused to unleash the hard work part of the ethnic”

” Work ethnic helps us grow stronger while we greatly respect all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

A formula for Peace………..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Jesus said the problem is within us: Out of the heart…….. proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: What a list! our real war is a rebellion against God- and it brings unending misery”

Mark 7;21;22

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as Jesus did when he came to us. The difference between us within this society and the society back when Jesus walked his path is, we are far removed from the journey of Christ, so much so that it leaves us with much doubt and a lack of self confidence within the paths we walk. We are all so guilty of getting away from the house of God, because this society has become so fast paced, we use that as an excuse, to not enter the doors of the house of God on the Holy day of Sunday. But what we tend to forget in today’s world is, you don’t have to enter the house of God every Sunday if only you truly believe in God and Jesus Christ, they are deep within our hearts and souls, just that we have buried them so deep, we really can’t feel their love anymore. You can go to your favorite quiet place, whether in your home, or within nature, so you than can speak to God with your prayers, now some may say he never speaks back? Oh yes he does, just that you have to open your eyes and hearts wide, so not to only feel him within, but to see the signs he puts in front of you, to guide you along your path of this journey through life.

With all the ugliness and the hatred that surrounds us today, especially in the city of Chicago, where the violence is so bad, many are being killed in the streets daily, is all the proof we need to truly see of how true this quote from Mark really is. The evil will consume us when we don’t truly feel God’s love within our hearts and souls and when the evil consumes us so, we then bury deeply the true feelings of Christ, just so others won’t see us as weak? This is when we become someone for who we truly are not, this is when we not only lie to others, but we lie to ourselves, so we can try to be as normal as we think normal is. Now we are only doing what we need to do, to survive in this cruel and evil world.

God didn’t create this world, we ourselves created this world and we can only blame ourselves for all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us. The solution is quite simple in that all we need to do is, bring Jesus back in our lives, truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this love with each other and not be ashamed of this feeling anymore. Out of love comes peace and joy, while out of evil brings all this hatred and ugliness, We the people of this society have to stand as one, against all the crap, then it will change over time, so we all can live in peace and true happiness.

I get the fact that fear has a strong hold on us today, simply because we have become to afraid of all the gangs and the violence they bring, we all have become a Victim of all these gangs, as we have let them just walk all over us? The time is now to basically treat these gangs as we did back as a child in school, when the Bully tried to control us with our fear and how do we handle this?  stand up to these gangs and put the fear of God right back in them and when we do it together as one, then eventually these gangs will disappear simply because, the fear they used on us, will not work anymore, making them, fear us, as they cower away, like the true coward that they are.

There will always be evil within this journey of life, we the people that walk this journey just have to be smarter, better and stronger, never lose the feeling of Jesus’s love within our hearts and souls, when we become a Victim of whatever, just stand up to whom or what that has made us the Victim, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve.

 

” The formula for peace is quite simple and within each of our hearts and souls”

” Good will always win over evil, just that we need to be stronger with more confidence in ourselves moving forward”

” The love of Jesus Christ is within us all, we just have to truly feel his love and acknowledge him as our savior who died for us all”

” Evil will always be within this journey, we just have to deal differently of the evil with confidence”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The clouds of our judgments………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Help me Lord not to allow the clouds of the day prevent me from seeking your face, may I like Moses be bold enough to approach the thick darkness if that is where your presence is found”

Exodus: 20:21

 

As we all walk our paths through this journey of life, each of us will experience these clouds, with some being slight and others being dark and frightening. No matter of what kind of clouds you face, with the total belief in Jesus Christ, we can overcome anything, while we ask Jesus to help us look behind the clouds to truly see his glory and to see what he has planned for each of us moving forward, along our paths of this journey.

The clouds of our judgments will have us do many things that aren’t of who we truly are, they will have us wander down a path with no true direction, which makes it that much more important to trust and believe in Jesus Christ, so we can ask him for guidance, when we wander off track, from the dark thick clouds of our judgments. There are many among us that, are so lost within their clouds, they try to move forward bringing much unwanted ugliness and hate to us all, they try to put themselves above the rest of us, like they are the only thing and think in their own minds as if they are more powerful then us all as well. There is no one more powerful than each other, as we are all equal to each other and unique to each other as well.

This journey may have many paths for us to choose from, but when we are surrounded by the dark thick clouds of our judgments, it makes for a difficult decision to make the correct decision of the right path for us to walk. When we make the wrong decisions along the path we choose, this could be what brings us much hatred and ugliness, then as we try to move forward within that decision, it then snow balls and spreads among the rest of us, as we to try to make the right decisions to the path we follow, within this journey of life.

Through all the corruption and the divisiveness among us, this journey of life for us all  within this society, has become so broken, it is going to take a lot of hard work from all of us, to fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward within the peace and happiness, we all so deserve. We have this new generation growing up among us right, that is in dire need of some good direction, before it becomes too late and the direction they are taking, will bring much more hatred and ugliness to the rest of us. This new generation also known as the Millennial generation, they are growing up with a lack of respect for anything around them, they think they are smarter then all that is around them? With their ideologies so whacked, they seriously make no sense at all. This generation wants to have children of their own, BUT!!!  They do not want to recognize the gender of the children they have and call them ” Theyby’s”?  Seriously!!! Let’s get real here, all this is going to do, is create a whole generation of Victims, which is going to break this society more so, than it is already.

Being a Victim of anything only brings much pain and hurt to us all, not just of who is actually the Victim? The pain and hurt from being a Victim, leaves a scar deep within your soul, which can take a lifetime to correct. We have all been a Victim of something or someone at some point along the path we walk, we all have that skeleton hidden deep within our souls, that we are hiding from each other, because the shame of being a Victim has hurt us badly. The shame alone can and will force us to be of someone we truly are not, simply because the pain is so intense, that we will do anything to rid ourselves from it. It is no picnic to be a Victim of anything, so why then do we want to allow a whole generation, to bring even more Victims to us all?

We all also have a little child deep within our souls and when this child grows correctly, we to then grow correctly within the society we enter. When we on the outside become a Victim of whatever and then become shamed from it, that little child within us also becomes shamed and hurts worse then we ourselves, which leaves that child to not grow properly within us and when that child does not grow, then we to on the outside do not grow as we should in a healthy way. There is so much more to this journey of life, that if we truly do not understand properly this journey, then whatever path you choose, will become rough with many bumps, to bruise and bring real pain and hurt to each of us, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

The dark frightening clouds of our judgments will clear, just that we need to truly understand why we become clouded with our judgments, so we than can clear them up, bringing, bright, clear skies around us, which will also bring much peace and happiness to us as well. When the clouds of our judgments are light or clear, we then can make better and more informed decisions, on whatever we are deciding over? Which then makes the path for which we choose, much more smooth with less bumps to bring us pain and hurt, plus it gives that little child within us all, a chance to truly grow healthy, so we all can grow healthy, as the peace of Jesus Christ consumes us so much, that there will be much love and happiness for us all, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The clouds of our judgments can be dark and frightening, or they can be light with a clearing, but they don’t have to bring us much pain and hurt that shames us all”

” Victims will becomes shamed full of real pain and hurt, why then do we need to create more victims within this society”

” We all have a little child deep within us, why would we want to bring any pain to that child”

” We protect our children within this society, so why not protect that child deep within our souls as well”

” We all hurt in our own way, so let’s better understand the hurt, to move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life”
