From cool, to beauty, to fury………..

Close Encounters of the third kind? More like Close Encounter with Mother Nature is more like it. Yes these clouds are cool looking, but they truly show how, that Mother Nature can go from total beauty, to total destruction in the blink of an eye. Never cross Mother Nature as she can totally unleash her fury on everything around her and nothing will stop her.

I have hiked Mount Washington in New Hampshire many times and with those times, I have seen as well the true beauty that mountain holds, plus all the different weather conditions that cruise over the summit of the mountain. Those weather conditions are the actions of Mother Nature flexing her muscles, changing the landscape of the Earth, by washing and cleaning all that we see and all that is around us. A lot of the change that comes to us, as we walk our paths of this journey, comes directly from Mother Nature, those Tulips you planted from a seed in your garden and are now in full bloom as a beautiful flower, that is directly from Mother Nature, as she has watered with the tear drops from heaven, or for you and me, the rain that is raining upon the Earth during the month of April.

Mother Nature is full of many changes all around us, some come with great destruction, as well as some with the soft touch of love, showing her true beauty to us all. When you get out and explore all that Mother Nature has in store for us, you can come to appreciate all that is around you better, so when you see the destructive part of Mother Nature, you than can come to respect her just as well, knowing that in an instant, all that you have can be wiped clear, as you then start anew, along your path of this journey through life.

Just as Mother Nature can flip that switch of being so beautiful one minute, we to can flip that same switch the next minute and as we see what we see around us today, you can clearly see we have lost control of that switch, with all the ugliness and hatred around us, which is similar to the wrath of Mother Nature, unleashing that beauty into an all out fury, on whatever is in her way, we do the same thing on each other and we don’t even know we are doing it, until we wake up and realize of what we are doing. The actions of mother nature and the actions of each of us, are all part of this journey, we just have to know when to get out and explore all that is around us, so we than can have a deep respect for what is around us, without not truly seeing and feeling what is around us, then taking an action of destruction, instead an action of love, showing the true beauty that is truly around us.

” The beauty is right there in front of us, we need to get out and explore to truly see it”

” The many faces of mother nature, just like the many faces of each of us”

” Mother Nature knows when to unleash her fury as she washes and cleans all that is around us”

” Unlike mother nature we have lost control of that switch, which we can clearly see by all the ugliness and hatred all around us”

Escape within the beauty of Mother Nature

The quiet serenity and beauty all around you, that is exactly what escaping within Mother Nature is all about. Leaving the daily grind even if it is for a short time, it is time much needed with all the drama and ugliness within the daily grind. Camping season is right around the corner and having reservations for a camp site on Memorial weekend, I simply can not wait to unwind and totally relax within the beauty of Mother Nature.

The beach in this picture may be a bit rocky, but it is a beach that you can enjoy all to yourself, a beach to sit and watch the Eagles fly by and on occasion, swoop down into the water for it’s daily meal. Then there is the Loon swimming by as it sings back and forth with other Loons, what a beautiful sound to just sit and relax, as you listen to them in their habitat. Then if your lucky enough without being to noisy, a friendly Moose will come out of the woods to the lake shore, for a drink and a bath. Now let’s not forget all the different sounds you hear within woods behind you, some sounds you would normally never hear within the daily grind, Mother Nature is pure beauty and never ever forget!!! You are now within the homes of the animal kingdom, which you need to respect, just like you would want others to respect your home as they come to visit you.

As quiet as this picture is, it is really this quiet as you sit on this rocky beach in person, while you sit in your comfy chair on this beach and take in all the beauty around you, you will actually feel the stress of the daily grind leave your body, the clouds of your judgment, will become clear as you look out within the beauty, the transition from the daily grind, to the beauty of Mother Nature is the most beautiful thing and we all need more of it.

When you take to the outdoors and within the beauty of Mother Nature, you also have to explore and see things you never will see within the daily grind, when I lived in the great state of Colorado, I had a 4×4 pick up and would venture in the back country and as high as 13,000 feet on a mountain, the beauty I would come across would take your breathe away, plus from time to time, come across a few Ghost towns, dating back in time from the gold rush days, I would stop and get out of the truck to walk around these towns, as I then would gain a big respect for those of our past, seeing that a lot of the buildings were still standing strong today. I would also come across some animals I would never see otherwise as they lived within the high country, like the Doll sheep, and the Ram sheep, even mountain lion and antelope, plus some pretty big bull Elk, it is so beautiful to see these kind of animals in their elements. I came across this herd of Ram sheep one time, as some where actually ramming each other with the horns, I must say I was getting a headache watching this, as in the daily grind you would never get a chance to see this at all.

There is so much to the beauty of Mother Nature and unless you get out and explore this beauty, you will never see or witness this beauty, from the daily grind that we all get caught up within. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all become too programmed within our daily grinds, to the point that some never get out to see the true beauty of Mother Nature, When you think about it……………. That is too sad because, we then become too tense and have no idea of what truly relaxing really is. When we are too tense that is when we bring all the ugliness we see today to each other, we then think that this is the norm? This is not truly of who we are, who we truly are…………….. Are people with love in our hearts that keeps us warm inside, when we become too tense, we then never truly feel the warmth of this love and then never share it with each other. The warmth of the love within your heart, is Jesus Christ our savior and his love for us, he loves us all deeply and equally, no matter of who you are, we within today’s daily grind, never give ourselves a chance to truly feel this love, as we become so engulfed, within the ugliness and hatred of today.

” Escape to the beauty of mother nature, to truly relax and get back in touch with the warmth of love within your heart from Jesus Christ”

” The rocky beach at first glance may look rough, but it’s true beauty will surround you with plenty of peace and serenity”

” The sounds of mother nature will totally relax you, as the stress of the daily grind will melt from your mind, body and soul”

” It may be a ghost town now, but at one point it was a bustling little town, full of joy, happiness and love”

The journey of Lent/Daylight savings

As the days become longer with the light of day and as we walk this journey through Lent, we now know that the season of camping is right around the corner, the season for us all to escape the daily grind and venture to the out doors, where Mother Nature is ready to show us her true beauty. Primitive camping where you pitch a tent and as you lay down to sleep within your sleeping bag, now you can listen to the heart beat of the Earth, listen to all the nightly sounds, like an owl waking from their sleep as they only can see clearly at night, maybe if your lucky you can hear the whispers of the night or maybe a nearby stream will comfort you to sleep with it’s running water?

With your camp site all set up and the camp fire ready for the night sky, you now can plan your day for tomorrow, maybe a hike up a mountain to see as far as you can from the summit of the mountain and as you walk up the trail, you may see some scenes you will never see within the daily grind. Yes it is true a hike can be a lot of work, but it is work much different than the daily grind, it is work that can relax you in the right frame of mind, let alone that it will help clear your mind from all the ugliness that comes with being within a society full of much ugliness. To escape within Mother Nature is a great way to unwind and totally feel the stress melt from your body. We within this ugly society and through the dark days of Winter, let way too much effect us and let all the ugliness consume us to the point that, we become bitter to all that is around us, we forget that there is a whole lot more to this journey of life than, what we see in our daily grind. Yes we all need a paycheck to pay the bills and survive in our lives, but we become so consumed with that…………. we then totally forget to take some ” me” time to unwind and cure our mind, body and soul, so we can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

Within this picture is so much peace and serenity, when you sit by the fire and take it all in, look out within the beauty in front of you, you can actually feel the stress leave your body and as the stress leaves you, now you can actually hear all that is around you, listen to the sweet sounds of the different wildlife around you, even hear the fish jump out of the water, hear the Eagles soar by with the greatest of ease, the loons chatting back and forth from a far, not too forget the many different birds singing their tunes throughout the echoes of the sky. There is so much beauty around you, you then forget of the daily grind and even though just for a short time, it is time you now can heal yourself from all the ugliness, heal yourself from what consumes you through the dark Winter days, so now you can clear the clouds from your judgments and totally heal your mind, body and soul from the stress of the daily grind.

Let’s not forget that when you escape to the beauty of Mother Nature, you are now within the home of many other different life forms on this planet, just like we live in our homes and we would hate for others to come in and disrupt our homes, we are now within the homes of so many animals within nature, like bear, moose, deer etc…. So as you set your camp always remember to respect their home, as we would want others to respect ours. Leave no trace while you are there and when you depart back to the daily grind, when you leave no trace when you leave, then you can come back to still more beauty, as Mother Nature is constantly changing with all within it. The plant life, the tree’s and even the animals, change all the time, just like we grow from our young ages, so does all within Mother Nature and it is a beautiful thing, to escape within nature and witness all the beautiful changes. Sometimes the changes to nature comes from violent weather, or maybe fire, but through these kind of changes, it may take some time, but the beauty does come back, for us all to enjoy once again. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with one of the great perks of this journey, is the taking of some time, to get out and escape the daily grind, to really enjoy the beauty of Mother nature, to be at peace and happiness with ourselves and as we then heal ourselves, to get back in touch with the love within us, so we than can share that love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Daylight savings may have us dread the loss of an hour, but we do gain more daylight to enjoy the great outdoors”

” Earth has a heart beat just like we do as well, mother nature has it’s beauty as do we as well”

” camping season is the chance for us all to escape the daily grind and relax to heal ourselves from the ugliness and see the true beauty of this journey”

” Mother nature has so much beauty within it, you can clearly see it all when you look deeply within what you see”

The green carpet of Mother Nature………

          It doesn’t get any prettier or greener than this, the true beauty of God’s creation, that is well taken cared for by Mother Nature.

You have all different variations of plant life all around you, from the wild flowers, to the green grass, the different types of tree’s and even a mountain in the background, God created this for us too enjoy, not to squander, take advantage of, or even destroy with our stupid selfish behaviors. There are still many places like this around for us to explore and enjoy, we just have to put aside our selfish ways, go out and explore, so we can enjoy this beauty that is around us everywhere.

Greed and our selfish ways are whats destroying all the true beauty that is around us. The Corporate companies want to keep invading these areas so they can add more buildings and make even more money, which all they are truly doing is subtracting the true beauty, then adding ugliness just to become more greedy and selfish. You also have other Individuals that are already well off, going into these places destroying the natural beauty, so they than can build it up with houses and condo’s, just too feed their greed, ego’s and selfishness even further. The bottom line of where I am going is, when you keep subtracting all the true beauty away from this planet Earth, pretty soon all that is left is, a fake reality and a beauty that isn’t real, Why do we keep letting all this go on? Because of greed #1 and the fact that we are becoming more selfish in our ways, with an ego that there is no one better than “I”.

When you look back into the history of the United States, or even the Country it is known as “North America”, there were settler’s here before the white man came to explore it, these Settler’s were known as the American Indian, they roamed this land with a simple lifestyle and there biggest worry was bringing home the meal for the Tribe to eat, it was when the explorer’s from other Countries came to this land and discovered it, then brought others here to settle and start a new, that started all the build up of this Country, to which through greed and time, we have taken the build up to a whole new level. not too mention the fact that we invaded this land and “selfishly” took it from the American Indian.

All we need to do today is, “look back into history, to see farther into the future”, so we can change our selfish ways and not only make our own lives better, but make the lives of all Society better as we all walk our paths of our journey of life. With all the negative drama that comes out of the news media today, you can see that this Society is in need of a major fix but when all the leaders of the Society act in a selfish way, you can see why everybody else has adopted their ways as their own, there is an old saying……. ” two wrongs don’t make it right”, this is a saying that we all need to adopt once again, so we all can walk our paths of our journey of life in peace, then we can see once again all the true beauty of God’s creation and not the fake beauty that man has built up, through greed and selfishness.

” God created everything around us, it is us throughout Mankind that is destroying all the true beauty of his creation”

” Greed and selfishness is not only destroying the true beauty around us, but is destroying each one of us from the core on out”

You can’t fool Mother Nature…………….

Mother Nature is real, no matter what you think and feel, Mother Nature is what gives us our four seasons. Think of it this way, in our government we have the President and he brings in people around him, to handle all the different departments, well God is the President of the planet Earth and Mother Nature is….. lets just say her title would be, the head of all four seasons and weather secretary.

To be able to get to summer we have to endure the winter and spring, then from summer we go through fall back to winter, with each season we have different kinds of weather events to go through and during the winter a snow storm is one of those events we have to endure, there is no way around it and no way for us to control these events, only just ride the ride, endure the storms as the sunny days will come, ” you have to experience the storms, so at the times of sunlight you can enjoy the happiness”.

Within our Society we have the Weatherman who comes to us via the news, with all the changes in technology he/she is able to warn us of up coming weather events, but they can’t truly predict or make these storms go away, we just simply have to learn to adapt and endure, so we can be ready for whatever Mother Nature may bring.

Just as Mother Nature changes from event to event, the Weatherman’s technology will change and also us as Human Beings of this Society. Real change takes time, we are creatures of habit and don’t like change of any kind, most change comes with much pain and when we feel this pain, we will do anything to relieve ourselves from this pain, most of the time we suppress this pain, ignore the change and try to continue our journey of life as easy as we can. Some may think of change as not putting milk in your coffee? Real change is a lot deeper than that, real change is when something bad happens to you, you change your lifestyle, so this never happens again. When you do change your lifestyle it doesn’t happen over night, even though in this Society we are trained that everything needs to happen now? Real change is in most cases three to six years, but depending on the event, it could take considerably longer? When you do accept real change and work very hard to make it work, you will find that you become even more happier, than the sunlight on a warm summer day.

Our comfort zone is another way of saying we are creatures of habit, we get into these comfort zones cause it keeps the pain of our troubles from us, just like Mother Nature brings us the storms and we complain about it, think of it as she is keeping this pain real for us, so we move forward into real change and become better and stronger than we have ever been. Everything happens in our lives for a reason, it is up to us to find that reason, so we can walk our paths along our journey of life, in peace and happiness while we endure any storm that may try to derail us from our paths. Technology may help the Weatherman in forecasting the storms of Mother Nature, but real change is what we all need, in order to find the reason of what happened to us, so our journey through life doesn’t have to be hard, doesn’t have to bring us to the hate and temptation of Satan, but simply bring us to a world of happiness and feel the warmth of God within our hearts and souls.

” Mother Nature may not be real for us, cause we don’t let ourselves accept real change into our lives”

” Real change may hurt some more than others, but through real change we can all be in peace, while we become happier and showing more love of each other”

Early winter has sprung here in New England…….

early winter

Winter officially may not be here for about another three weeks, but Mother Nature has seemed to be preparing us for another run at this white stuff for another winter season, this is fine as you can’t totally predict what Mother will do and you can’t change the seasons, even though some may even try?

Winter is one of the four seasons, in order to get another crack at the summer season, you have to go through the winter season, some may say they don’t like winter and want it to go away, well if you don’t like it that bad, than go to a warmer climate and stop being so bitter of it, true the snow may inconvenience us, but it is only for a short time and if you take it in stride and moderation, than before you know it, summer will be back with us again.

We all walk a path along our journey of life, we all have to accept the bad to get to the good, when we do this it makes us not take for granted the good when it comes to us, the same goes for the seasons of the calendar year, we have to learn to accept the winter so we don’t take for granted the season of summer and we fully enjoy it when it is upon us, instead of feeling down and getting moody when it snows, let the snow get you upbeat while you go out and find ways to enjoy the beauty of the winter, yes I said beauty of winter, all the seasons have their own distinct beauty within them, much like we all as Humans that walk this Earth, after a nice fresh snowfall, it is a good time to go out and take some good pictures as this is when winter is so beautiful, even if your not a photography buff, it is a good hobby to learn for all seasons and especially the winter, as this will help your winter blues and keep you from going into hibernation, while all the rest of us pass you by. winter is like everything else as you have to look past what you don’t like, so you can see the true beauty deep within the core of what you are looking at.

Winter may be cold and have its moments like shoveling out after a storm, true that is a lot of work, but a little work should never stop you from truly enjoying what winter really is, the white snow that covers the ground, is God’s way of putting a blanket on the Earth, so as the season of spring comes to us, we see with our eyes Earth rejuvenating itself and becoming beautiful with new growth, like a new born baby to its new Mom and Dad, the seasons are part of our journey as we walk it, we just have to accept them all, to truly see the true beauty each one holds, like we all as Humans, walking our paths along our journey of life.

” let the seasons change and truly see the beauty each one offers us”

” the snow is a blanket to the Earth, like a new born baby is to the new Mom and Dad”

” Winter may be cold, so let the beauty warm your heart and body as you enjoy for a few months”

The Weather events in our lives

We all have been seeing alot of Weather events all around us lately no matter where you live, severe flooding, thunderstorms tornados and tropical storms, these are all weather events that can affect each and every one of us.
When you research back in time even before Mankind, these events have been happening all over this Planet, yes they have made great strides with technology, to be able to give us better warnings of these events, just imagine back in time before technology ever exsisted, when people had to always look to the sky to see what it had in store for the day? Or even the storms that hit with no warning and crippled an entire area? We have come a long way to predict these events, but in this “all about me” Society, we have gone backwards in thinking, that everything revolves around me.
When we walk our paths, along our Journey’s of life, there will always be things that happen we can’t explain? Why does a Storm just pop up without warning? Why can’t the Meteorologists get the forecast right? No matter how good the technology you can’t predict exactly where the storm will touch down, you can give an area just not an accurate location, Mother Nature is a sign from God to us, we need to change, fix what is wrong so we can move forward along our Journey.
Life for all of us is full of these signs from God, it is us as Humans that determine if we want to see these signs or not, like the weather events, we all also have life events that happen to us as well, some extreme and some not so extreme, it is these life events that determine whether or not we actually feel God within our hearts and souls? When these life events happen, we try to protect ourselves from any harm that may come to us, in this process we than suppress our true feelings and emotions, which than leads to us not feeling God within our hearts and souls, God is always there no matter of our misfortunes, he always forgives when we need forgiving, just that we have to acknowledge and feel him, deep within our hearts and souls.
God reacts in many ways, weather events are one of those ways and a sign for us to see, that what we are doing needs to change, so our Society can change and when change happens for the right reasons, we all can walk our paths, along our Journey of life with strength, to be better with happiness in a World of beauty.

” Weather events is one way God gives us signs, we need to acknowledge and feel him deep within our hearts and souls, so we can see the signs he sends us”

” The technology of the weather service has come along way from the past, but it is still hard to accurately predict what Mother Nature wants to do”
