Life of the great outdoors…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA               Life within the great outdoors has a beauty of its own and will take your breathe away when you see first hand. Whether your camping and I mean the real camping in a tent, so deep within the wilderness, that cell phone service does not exist, you have to raise your food high enough in the tree’s to keep the Bears from having an open invitation to eating it, you build a campfire to not only cook your meals, but gives you warmth from the night air, true it is work just to hike into camp, set up camp and gather wood for the camp fire, but when all is set there is no better way to relax, when your sitting around the fire and taking in the sounds of nature around you.

Hiking a trail or a mountain you have never been on and exploring the unknown, then seeing some breathe taking sights that normally you would never see, not only the scenery but the wildlife you come across on the path of the trail in which you take, like when I hiked up mount Albert in Leadville, Colorado. This was an elevation of 14,500 and the highest I have ever been, the journey on the trail to the top put me in a state of awe many times along my trek, not to mention the snow fall I encountered at the top in the month of July. Yes I was prepared for anything I may encounter, as it was only a day trip but I had a full backpack on my back, as I hiked up the trail I came across many buildings that were still standing strong from the days of yesteryear, as I approached these buildings I did stop to explore further, looked inside and was amazed at the workmanship of these buildings, plus how they were still standing through the test of time and the brutal weather that they endured. Hiking in areas we normally would never hike, helps us better understand that we are not alone and that others have walked their journeys here on Earth, it gives us a feeling of accomplishment, as well as getting us out of our comfort zone and as we accomplish one hike, we than want to hike more.

To some getting out of there comfort zone is to take a new route to work, that may be okay to see new things, but your destination is right back into your comfort zone where you feel safe, but to truly get out of your comfort zone, you have to explore new things, feel that feeling of accomplishment after you reached the summit, like I did when I reached 14,500 on top of mount Albert, see things you would normally never see, no matter what route you take to work. Plus to see the buildings that were built from the original settler’s and still standing strong today, now that will give you a whole new outlook on life today, they built these buildings with what was around them and not going to your local Home Depot, life today is in so many ways easier than back in those days, but yet we in our minds think we have it hard and we make our lives harder than it really has to be.

Life in the great outdoors has so much to offer, its not just going in the backyard and grilling steaks on the BBQ, its going out and trekking in areas you normally would never go, exploring and seeing things that you never seen, or even thought ever existed. When you explore the outdoors you not only learn and see new things, you also learn of yourself also, you find that there is a lot more than just walking your normal path of your journey of life, you also learn that no matter what event that life throws at you, you can overcome that event with the confidence to be better and stronger as you walk your path along your journey of life, just as the ones that came before us and walked their paths along their journey of life.

” The great outdoors has a lot to offer us, than just the rays of the sun and the stars of the night sky”

” To reach the summit of the mountain isn’t just about the walk to the top, it is more about the feeling of accomplishment when you reach the summit”

” The feeling of accomplishment is something we can get, not by just reaching the summit of any mountain”

Another Christmas that has come and gone along our journey

Now that Christmas has come and gone and is another memory in our past, let us not forget the other 364 days within the year til the next Christmas, let us not forget what Christmas really means to each of us as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, it is also we as Humans sharing our love of selves with each other, it is being with family over all the commercialization hype that surrounds each Christmas season, but more important it is us as Humans excepting Jesus Christ in our lives, so he can guide us to the true path of righteousness, the path that is full of good and love, all paths throughout our journey have their own twists and turns, but the true path of righteousness when followed correctly and believe in Jesus Christ will always lead us to good, while the love of ourselves flows from us and spreads throughout all Society.

A lot of times we get caught up in the flow of society and what we think is the normal, just because those around us may be doing what they think is right, don’t really mean it is truly right, some may look at those who except Jesus and look at them as weird,  but the really weird ones are the ones that don’t truly believe in Jesus Christ, Jesus is the son of God, who created this planet and all of Mankind, Jesus came to us and walked his path of his journey, just like all of us do in our lives, the difference is that he showed us just what the path of righteousness is all about, he showed us just how our love of ourselves can spread the good throughout any Society and those who rebelled against this love, are the ones that bring this hatred and evil to any Society.

We all suffer a loss and grieve in our own way, we also suffer different life events that come to us along our paths, when these things happen to us, we then pray to Jesus to help us through these tough times, but when he doesn’t communicate back with us, we then lose this faith and belief in him and God, what we don’t realize is that Jesus doesn’t talk directly with us, he sends these signs for us to see, but we never look for these signs cause we don’t understand of what to truly see, cause these events have clouded our minds in ways we don’t understand, we then try to move forward on our paths in ways we think is the right way, but what we are really doing is becoming someone we truly are not, only because we have lost that true connection of Jesus Christ and what the path of righteousness really is.

When we have total faith and belief in Jesus Christ, understand what to see when he sends us these signs, we will always know where this path of righteousness is, it is not just any path of which we choose, it is a path that keeps us in touch with our true selves, lets us feel the warmth of Jesus within our hearts and souls, which is his love filling our bodies, so we than can love ourselves correctly, when we love ourselves then this same love spreads throughout our Society and all the good flows through the Society, like a mountain stream flows down a mountain constantly and fluently, we all have certain events happen to us along our journey, when we understand better of the why and never lose the faith and belief in Jesus, we will always know where to find the path of righteousness, so we all can walk our paths along our journey of life in peace and love of one another.

” Christmas is the birth of Jesus Christ, being with our families, so this love of selves can then spread throughout Society, with all the good coming to each of us”

” With true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, we will always see his signs he sends us from our prayers”

” Christmas is the birth of Jesus and doesn’t end in one day, it is a journey like all our journeys through life”

We are all Humans within this Society…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

To set the scene, this picture is of the Charles river in Boston, ma. Overlooking the dome at MIT college in Cambridge, this picture was taken on a happy night with 1000’s of other Humans coming together, for the fourth of July fireworks, people along the shores and people out on their boats, none the less, many people coming together to enjoy a great show.

This is what “Freedom” is all about, being free to do, enjoy and have great fun as you wish, this freedom came with a great price and this price was what we celebrate and the meaning of what the fourth of July really stands for, the ones that fought for this freedom,  were not just someones brother, sister, son, or daughter, they to were Humans like the rest of us, they were also very brave for standing up to other Humans, that were trying to take this freedom from us, without reservation they left their loved ones, so the rest of us can enjoy the freedom’s we have today.

There may be some on this Planet that may try to disrupt this freedom and will stop at nothing to keep us from enjoying what ever we want to enjoy, these Individuals are either within a group, or are operating solely on their own, but what they have in common are, they are all Terrorists and will do anything to have the rest of us show the feeling of fear, these Terrorists may be within a group or operate as an Individual, but what they all are equally, is ” Mentally Deranged Individuals”, that will do what ever they have to in order to create this fear in all of us, so they can have a feeling of power, hiding their true pains and harms that have hurt them in their past.

Whether you want to use the word Terrorist, or the word Bully? They are both the same and will do what ever they have to, in order to create this fear in the rest of us, so they can have a feeling of power over all, no matter how you look at it, we are all Humans living on this God created planet Earth, we all suffer some sort of “life event” along our path of our journey in life, just that the Bully or the Terrorist, bury all their true feelings and emotions and lash out on the rest of us, to try to keep us from enjoying our freedoms, that we worked very hard to achieve.

This group called ISIS that we all hear about through the news, is a whole different breed of Bully/Terrorist, they are using social media to recruit, prey and brainwash the weak within our Society, they are so radical, that all their views have become so distorted, that they don’t believe in anything except killing everything that don’t buy into their ways and creating so much fear in us, that we are afraid to enjoy our freedoms, as bad as this group is, they are Humans within this Society just as we all are, if you look back in a time before Jesus walked his Journey, there have been plenty of radicals like ISIS that stop at nothing to create fear in others, so they can get all the power, their views were also distorted in ways we can’t explain, well it’s time to understand this distorted way of these Bullies/Terrorists, so we can all get back to walking our paths along our journey of life, in peace, love and be free to enjoy the freedom that our brave Individuals, fought for throughout all Mankind.

” A Terrorist is the same as a Bully in that they inflict fear in all of us, so they can have more power”

” No matter who you are, we are all Humans on this God created planet, that need to coincide with each other, to live in peace while showing love of one another”

” Freedom is never free, it always comes with a great price”

The World in which we live

The World in which we live, if you look at it from the exterior, you will see beauty all around you, the mountains, the oceans, the wildlife running around and enjoying life, all these things and many many more are what brings the beauty to our so precious World, if you see the World from afar and the exterior, yes you can see the beauty, but in order to see the true beauty of our World, you have to see what it holds inside on the interior, see what makes it spin in the blackness of space, the inner beauty of everything is so much more beautiful, then the exterior can ever show you.
With all the crap within our Society today, it is very hard to look at the interior of anything, all the killings, the hatred, all the different views and the people who think their view, is more important than the others, when a mentally deranged Individual takes someones life or the lives of many, the media makes this “breaking news” for a week, or even months? They even say things of the victim/victims and don’t give a chance for the families to grieve and heal properly, just for a story and to make money? The grieving process is different as we all grieve differently, some want to be left alone and we should respect that, but it is hard when all the media outlets are chatting about it, it is this process that heals us, so we can be stronger and better on our paths along our Journey of life.
Yes there are Mentally Distraught Individuals out there, but if we all had true Empathy, we will see that something/someone have aided them to being what they are. you are not born into being what you have become, we all suffer some kind of life event, it is these events that shape us into what we have become, some where or some how something has influenced you, now whether that influence is positive or negitive, will always show as you grow into Society whether you realize it or not, we never want to admit to the bad influences in our lives, cause we don’t want others to view us as “different”, but we are only different cause we did’t turn these negitives into a positive, instead we suppressed them deep inside, to hide our true pain from all that is around us.
Robin Williams took to entertaining us all, so his inner demon wouldn’t show to any of us, all the Terrorists of the World take to inflicting fear on all of us, to hide their true fears from us, while they live in their fantasy World, everything we do within Society and all that happens to us, is so we can learn from it, fix what is wrong and walk our paths along our Journey of life in peace, while being better and stronger, than of Societies past.
The bottom line is, we the people together are responsible for all the crap within our Society, instead of pointing the finger at who the Media tells us to point it at, stop the blame game and simply look into the mirror, look deep within ourselves, fix all the negitive life events that has happened to us, so not only we as an Individual can be at peace, but the whole Society of this World can be at peace, when we do this we will find that all of us, will be better and stronger, as we walk our paths along our Journey of life.

” The World in which we live may seem large, but if we truely look at the interior, we will find it is quite small”

” We all have our troubles within our lives, it is these troubles that are brought to a Society, whether we realize it or not”
