everything flows like the water along it’s path.

We all throughout this Society learn many things along our journey of life, as we learn these things we then develop our own beliefs from what we have learned, even though what we have learned comes from somewhere else, we still try to take what we have learned twist it in a way that, is best suited for ourselves and in a way that is easy for us to move forward in our own lives. Everything we do along our paths of this journey has been learned from someone or something that has crossed our paths, it is what we do with our learning’s and how we enter into a Society of many, that creates all this ugliness we see around us today.

With all the Media we have today whether through the Television, Newspaper, Social Media Etc….. Clearly is the reason why we have a Society full of Drama today. With all this Drama and the way it is brought to us, makes it very easy to get caught up in it, especially because it is everywhere around us no matter which way you turn. With all the different ways the Media comes to us, it takes money to bring it to us, so the Media will bring us anything and everything, just so they can get big ratings, which in turn brings them big money. When the Media brings a story to us, they then embellish that story, which does nothing but create more Drama, to this already big Drama Society.

One of the biggest things all Media does is, when a terrible tragedy happens, instead of letting the Families of the victims grieve properly, they get in their faces with cameras and questions? This practice is wrong and needs to be done away with, cause when we can’t grieve properly, we then can’t heal properly, making our pain and hurt so big that we then do anything, just to relieve ourselves from all the pain and hurt.

This sick and twisted group of ISIS and all the Fear they are bringing to all of us within this Society, you think this is the way they are? This is not the way they are, this is not the way any of us are, ISIS have learned to be this way from someone/something, their sick and twisted views have come from someone/something  within their journey through their lives. When God created Mankind, his vision was not for us to be this way, all this Drama and ugliness is on each one of us and we the people within this Society, are our own worst enemy.

There have been a lot of great and smart Individuals throughout the history of Mankind, these Individuals have brought many things that have made our lives easier from one Society to another, we have learned a lot of great things from these Individuals, but through this Society of Political Correction and my way is the best way? Now we are all learning things for all the wrong reasons and this has been going on for a few Generations, to which now through groups like ISIS, we have twisted our views of everything and anything that comes across our paths through this journey of life. Plus you add in the fact that we all suffer from some kind of life event or tragedy, now you have a Society that is hurting deeply right to the core of their being, unless we start grieving properly, fixing our issues from the events that come to us properly, then this Society will always be a broken Society, with each of us trying to bring down each other.

God did not create us to be this way, he filled our hearts with love, so we can than share this love with each other. You think the Media interviewing someone after a tragedy, really cares for that person? Exactly not, all they care about are the ratings, so they can make the big money and live their plush lifestyles, not too mention bringing even more Drama, to our Drama ridden Society of today. Then as the Media plasters all over the television the tragedy in Paris France and makes these twisted Individuals out to be folk hero’s? Now you have other Deranged Individuals out there trying to out do the other, just so they to can (with their twisted views), become what they think of as being famous. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we learn many things suffer through events and tragedies along the way, but we all need to grieve and fix all our issues properly, so we than can walk these paths in peace, making all our journey’s better and happier throughout our Society of today and future Societies to come.

 

” The Media may create all the Drama, but we the people are what buys into all this Drama”

” we all learn many things along our paths of our journey, we all grieve in our own way, it is how we heal away the pain properly”

” The hurt and pain is what helps us become stronger and better moving forward, we need to deal better with this hurt and pain, so we all can walk in peace throughout this journey of life”

 

 

May the light of the path always shine bright.

Autumn Leaves          ” I will go anywhere and do anything in order to communicate the love of Jesus to those who do not know him, or have forgotten him”

****St. Frances Xavier****

Cabrini

We all walk a path through this Journey of life, whether we chose a path that has already been carved out, or whether we carve our own path, there will never be a wrong path, if only we learn to walk the path correctly, so we can walk in peace and happiness, sharing the love of God that is within us all, with each other as we walk our paths along this journey through life.

When we walk these paths through the journey of life, there will always be objects that come before us, for us to overcome, there will always be others who come along our path, that will try to sway us away from our direction, in order to bring us to their path and direction, as we keep our faith and trust in God and stay true to ourselves, as well as the path of righteousness that Jesus showed us, these people that come before us on our paths and the objects that come before us, will only be a temporary set back, as we will always move forward along our paths and become stronger, with more confidence, for whatever else that may come before us along our paths of this journey through life.

These paths we walk through this journey of life are all full of the unknown, we never know what is around the next corner? Although when we stay true to who we are and keep our faith and trust in God, no matter what lies around the corner, we can get through it keeping us moving forward and not becoming lost within our own selves, or even becoming lost within the clouds of our judgements. “God and Jesus will never steer us wrong, it is us as Individuals that steer ourselves in the wrong direction”. Trust in ourselves as well as the trust in God and Jesus, will always get us around each corner of our paths, along this journey through life.

The unknown along our paths of this journey of life is what brings us the most fear, which is why we tend to stay within ourselves and not reach out at the times we need it most. The deeper we get into this journey of life, we tend to lose trust in ourselves as well as all that is around us and this includes God and Jesus, we see all the ugliness around us, so we then stay within ourselves, to hide our pain and keep ourselves from further harm. When we lose this trust in ourselves and God, we then forget how to truly forgive ourselves, which then keeps us from forgiving anything that is around us. God will always have faith in us and will always forgive us no matter of who you are, it is us as Individuals that need to have faith and forgive ourselves, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life, with strength and confidence, as we all walk in peace and happiness always.

” God and Jesus will never steer us wrong, it is us as Individuals that steer ourselves in the wrong direction”

” The fear of the unknown is a scary thing for all that walk a path along this journey through life”

” Getting away from the trust in ourselves and in the trust of God, will always keep us from truly moving forward along the paths of our journey of life”

Annunciation………. Go out and announce to all around you

          There used to be four churches within my area, now they have down sized to two churches and the new name of the church is, ” Annunciation Parish”. I actually like the new name and what the word Annunciation really stands for, it truly means to go out and announce to those around you, of the new beginning and another chance to be better and stronger, moving forward on our paths of our journey of life.

With this merger of the four churches comes a lot of pain and sadness, as two of the four churches had to close, which leads to the congregation of these churches who spent their lives worshiping and praying at those churches, not too mention being baptized, first Communions, conformations,being married and even celebrating a life being taken from us at these churches, there are a lot of lives and journey’s of those lives that are being changed as we speak right now, the pain and the sadness are at the for front within these congregations, but if we all together as a community and as a new congregation of the Annunciation Parish can work together, we can see past what we look at as an ending and truly see that we are blessed by God himself,  to truly start a new beginning and announce to the Community and the World, that we can start a new, to be better and stronger a long our paths of our journey of life.

Everything around us in our lives, including we the people of Mankind go through many changes as we walk our journey”s, some of these changes are simple and easy to adapt to, but there are many changes that come with much pain and sadness, the magic word to us all is ” adapt”, when we adapt correctly these changes, then the sadness and pain will flow into healthy and happy. Healthy doesn’t just mean being in good physical condition, being healthy in our minds brings goodness and the ability to share this goodness to all those around you, when we are healthy in our minds, body and soul, than the sadness will go away and turn to much happiness, which helps us share this happiness with all those around us. The new Annunciation Parish is a chance for all within it’s new Congregation, to announce to all within the Community and the World, that even in sadness with what we see as an ending, there truly can be a new beginning and a chance to be better and stronger as we walk our paths of our journey of life.

The formation of Annunciation Parish is a chance for the new Congregation, to go out and Announce to the Community and the World, that even through the sadness and the pain of an ending, can come healthy and happiness of a new beginning. There will be many endings as well as many beginnings a long our journey”s of life, when we approach them with true healthiness and happiness, we can adapt to them and be better and stronger no matter what may cross our paths, may the Peace of God be with all at the new Annunciation Parish and may the new Congregation, truly go out and announce to the Community and the World, that through the sadness and pain of an ending, can come good health and happiness to all, so they can be better and stronger a long their paths of their journey of life.

” Within all the endings we encounter in life there always comes a new beginning, we just have to look deep within ourselves to truly see this new beginning”

” Annunciation is another way of saying, go out and announce to all those around you, the true beauty that is around us”

” May the peace of God be with Annunciation Parish and may they all announce to the Community and the World, the good and the true spirit of Jesus Christ”

Everything comes in all different shapes, sizes and uniquness.

           We all may look at this picture and see something totally different than each other, one may see a sleeping dog, another may see a sea turtle, this only shows just how unique we are to each other. What this picture truly holds is, this is a huge boulder that is covered with moss, I found this on a trek through the woods, in a place I have never been before and I was exploring and seeing different things of what was around me.

When you go Trekking anywhere, whether you have been there or not, always look at what is around you, you never know what you may see, you might of already seen something before, but always you will see things in which you have never seen before. This is what the Journey of life holds for all of us as we walk our paths through it. When we go through life without truly exploring what is around us, then we are never really walking our paths of our journey, to the full extent of really walking our paths, I get that to some exploring the unknown is a scary thought and they may not want to explore, as this may bring more pain to the pain they already have, but if you don’t explore new things than you may never learn new things and ways, in order to make yourself better and stronger moving forward, or may our Society in which we live become better and stronger moving forward as well.

Just as in this picture we all see things differently than each other, this is part of the uniqueness in which God created us, if we all looked at an object like this rock and saw the same thing, then life would be very boring for all of us? But because of our uniqueness and seeing everything differently, should help us all to see our paths along this journey of life very clearly, yet when we look at something and expect others to see what we see, to think that what we think, others should think the same, will only prove why all the turmoil and chaos that surrounds us now exists.

This journey of life is just that ” a journey”. What do you do on a journey? You explore new things, Not just to learn for ourselves, but to learn of ourselves and all that is around us, to see new things that make up our surroundings as we walk our paths, not just to make ourselves better, but to help make others around us better, so all within Society can be better moving forward, from one Society to another.

” to explore we not only learn new things, we learn of ourselves and all that is around us, so we can walk our paths of our journey of life better and stronger moving forward always”

” everything including us as Humans comes in different shapes and sizes, this proves just how unique we are to each other”

The many Cultures throughout this World

“We all as Human Beings are part of each Culture, whether we want to acknowledge it or not”.

We all walk our own paths along this journey called life, depending on which path you take and where you set your roots to live within this Society, you are part of a culture, a culture that views the World differently than all other Cultures. There is no Culture greater than another, it is all part of all of us being diverse and respectful of each other.

This diversity and respect within each culture, is what is missing within our Society today. Today every Culture is moving forward with a notion that, their culture is the only way to go through life and when you think you are above everything around you, this is where the problems within our Society lies. When God created everything around us, including we throughout Mankind, he did so for us to coincide with each other, he created us equal but unique to each other, which is the same for all the different Cultures around the World. What we lack in this Society today is, diversity and respect of each other and the different Cultures around the globe, this is the biggest reason why we are a broken Society today.

You see everyday around you, people using the word “RACISM” as an excuse to throw more hate at each other? I have news for you there is no such thing as Racism and it is only a word made up by us the people, in order to deflect anything away from ourselves, so we don’t have to take responsibility of anything. We all have our issues, we all have our problems, it’s when we don’t acknowledge them, that we then try to point blame at everything around us, instead of owning up to them, so we can fix what is wrong and move forward better and stronger on our journey of life.

Cultures are a way of life for where ever you may be around the globe, instead of looking at these cultures and laughing or making fun of them, lets show more respect and learn of them, so we can be more diversified and open to everything around us. I understand there may be groups that try to over whelm us with their clouded views and try to lure us into something that is purely evil, this shows that Satan is alive and well, just like when he tempted Jesus on his journey, but when we stay true to ourselves and who we are, than God will always warm our hearts with his love and when we acknowledge this warmth within us, than the love spreads throughout all the Cultures.

” Love throughout the cultures brings much joy and happiness, without any disrespect or hatred as we all walk our paths along our journey of life”

” there are many cultures within this world, when we stay open and respectful of them, then we all can coincide together in diversity and strength moving forward”

The Ego of the times…..

The Human Ego is a powerful tool we all have within ourselves, the power of the Ego is such that, we don’t even know how it totally works.
God has created all of as humans and all that surrounds us, when he created us his vision for us, was to work together and not just building up what is around us, but to build up ourselves with strength and the confidence to achieve anything that comes across our path.
We have let our Ego get in the way of us moving forward with strength and confidence, our Ego is supposed to work in a way for us to be better, instead we have used our Ego to seperate ourselves from each other.
An Ego is a tool inside us and like if your fixing a car, you can’t properly fix it, if you do not have the proper tools? In order for us to truely fix ourselves, we need to understand the Human Ego, learn how it totally works, so we than can be stronger and better moving forward, instead of letting our Ego’s get in the way of us walking our paths in peace and harmony, so our Journey’s can be in true happiness.
An Ego is a powerful tool within all of us, when used correctly it can be the best thing that helps us be better and stronger, when we use it to seperate ourselves from each other, it leads to chaos and a disfunctional Society on all our Journey’s in life, which leads us to walking our paths in a way of hate and destruction, our Society shows this today, nobody wants to take responsibility for anything, cause our Ego’s tells us we are perfect and there is nothing wrong with us? We think that we ourselves are better then the other? We also think that there is nothing wrong with me, as the problem is the other guy? If the problem keeps being the other guy, than nobody will stand up, take the blame, so we all in Society can fix each other, instead of pointing the finger all the time, it’s our Ego’s that keeps getting in the way, instead of each one of us totally understanding how it works, so we than can fix ourselves, which will fix Society, so we all can walk our paths in peace and harmony, while our Journey’s through life can be better and stronger, not just for ourselves, but for each one of us throughout Society.

“An Ego is a powerful tool within all of us, we need to learn to use it correctly, so we can be better and stronger moving forward”

“The Human body has many components, in order for it to function in unity, we need to first understand it totally, so we than can fix ourselves to be better and stronger”

Get busy living, or get busy dying………..

As I watched the Espy awards last night, for those that don’t know? The Espy’s are awards by ESPN, voted on by us the fans of the sports, but as I watched and saw one of their own sports anchor’s get a Persaverence award, for his fight with cancer, he had been fighting this for seven years and I never knew of his fight, really got me thinking of life in genral.
The sports Anchor is Stuart Scott and he has been with ESPN for as long as I can remember, Kiefer Sutherland alias Jack Bauer of the series “24” introduced him to the stage, when he came to the stage and gave his speech, there was not a dry eye in the place, including me at home, it was strong and powerful, his quote pretty much says it all “you beat cancer by how you live, while you live”.
Watching this last night got me thinking of life in genral, we all walk a path in life on our Journey of life, there is no perfect path, nor is there any path without the bumps and the bruises, we all go through different life events, some more extreme than others, it is us as Humans that determine how these life events affect us, we can take the Stuart Scott approach and keep moving forward, while we fight through it and maybe beat the cancer totally, or we can just simply give up, to which we just lay there til we have taken our last breathe?
Some of us may not even fight, because our thoughts and our minds become so clouded, that we doubt even ourselves, we think that no matter what we are dying, so whats the use in trying to continue with life as I saw it and just wander til the day comes, when things happen to us as Humans and they will, part of life and what makes us stronger and better, is how we persevere and fight through the trouble times, life is very precious to each of us, we only get one shot at it, which is why we need to do it right with the life we are given and is why all our lives are well worth the fight.
When we stay true to ourselves even through the darkest times, we will find being true to each other will come with no effort, we will also find that being true to ourselves and acknowledge God in our lives, we will feel him in our hearts and our souls, as he guides us along our Journey of Life, it is when we lose this feeling, that the doubt enters our lives and we become lost in the clouds within our minds, which leads us to aimless wandering throughout our lives, which is why it’s more important for truely being who we are and walking our Journey through life with confidence, so we can be better and stronger moving forward.

” We can get busy living, or we can get busy dying, the choice is our’s to make”

” Staying true to ourselves will help us see clearly, anything that may cross our paths, along our Journey of life”
