Be prepared and ready for all that may cross your path

a pile of snow with a mountain in the background: APTOPIX Everest Death

The World’s highest peak that is mount Everest is a mere 29,029 feet, but what is even more important is the death zone of that mountain, the zone where you need to be prepared and totally know of what you are doing is 26,000 feet, at the death zone elevation is where anything can happen and you need to be hyper-vigilant of your surroundings at all times, not too mention what is happening to yourself in the way of elevation changes as well. There is no messing around hiking this mountain and at no time, should this mountain be used as a conversation piece to brag to others that, ” I have done something you haven’t”. even those in the most tip top shape have struggled hiking this mountain, simply because the elevation is the biggest factor in being totally prepared to hike this mountain.

Hiking this mountain and being above the 26,000 elevation mark is, kind of like a diver in the ocean going below a certain depth, the diver gets what is known as the Bends, when he surfaces he then has to get within a decompression chamber to decompress from the ” decompression sickness”, from ascending to quickly, even with the oxygen or the nitrogen in their tanks they still get this sickness, which is something that nobody climbing mount Everest even thinks about when they climb the worlds highest peak.

Right now the deaths on mount Everest is at an all time high and the Government of Nepal is not even thinking of making any changes to the rules? Right now if you show up with the $11,000 they will issue a permit to you, without even checking your mountaineering skills, or even the health condition of your present self, it is like all things today and about the money, especially for the small country of Nepal looking to survive within today’s world.

I put the blame squarely on all the social media platforms out there and the fact that people hike within areas without being totally prepared, just to gain a bigger presence on these platforms with more followers. Let’s look at a page on Facebook for instance, this page is called I hiked the 4,000 footers club in New Hampshire, this page has people posting pictures and bragging of their hike, with a lot of these hikers, not wearing the proper foot gear, or even carrying the proper equipment to be ready for whatever they may encounter, let’s go one step further here and the fact that, there is not enough adequate parking for all, so they park on the side of an interstate highway, just so they can put pictures up on their Facebook page or whatever social media platform they are using. Hiking anywhere within the white mountains of New Hampshire you need to be prepared for anything, especially the sudden changes in the weather, it can and will snow on the top of mount Washington in the summer and when you can’t find the trail because of the snow, then you need maybe a compass and even be able to see where you are just by looking at the sky, or just maybe remember your surroundings for the return trip. I noticed on my hikes a lot of times, people are looking in front of them for a trail marker and not looking at what is around them? What happens if that marker is not there for whatever reason? What do you do then? When you are above the tree line you see a pile of rocks, what are they? And what are they called? They are Carns and they mark the trail for you to follow.

This picture of the people climbing mount Everest, what is the biggest problem of this picture? If you said the line of people and being way to close to each other, you are 100% correct, because if one of them misstep and fall, now you have a domino effect of all going down and with the cliffs on both sides……………. Well with common sense you can see what is going to happen there. Even with the oxygen they are breathing from the tanks on their backs, that is still not enough at the altitude they are in, then you add in the fact that, when these people get to the top they want to take a ” selfie” and most definitely, they want people to see who they are in the picture, so they then take off the mask of oxygen for the picture, but they don’t realize that, even the seconds that the mask is off, is seconds to long at that elevation. Your body at that elevation is already changing and parts of the body is shutting down, because we are not cut out for this type of rigorous endeavor, no matter how much in shape you think you are? Just like all the deaths happening on mount Everest, there are deaths happening in the white mountains of New Hampshire, simply because people are embarking on these hikes without being properly prepared, for what ever might cross their paths, whether it’s the proper foot gear, to enough water to stay hydrated, or even the proper snacks for protein, or even carrying the right gear in the pack, just in case your stuck in a weather condition that changes drastically, no matter what the hike, you need to be well prepared and ready for anything that you may encounter along your path, of any journey you embark on.

” Be prepared is the biggest of the Boy Scout’s motto and something we all need to adhere to within the journey of life”

” A traffic jam of people on the worlds tallest peak, is something that should never be and dangerous for all stuck within the traffic jam”

” Just because you have $11,000 should never be all it takes to hike the worlds tallest peak”

” Social media platforms are being used in a way they were never designed to be used, because we the people misuse everything we touch without thinking through the ramifications of our actions”

The Grass may not be greener elsewhere

Migrants, part of a caravan of thousands from Central America trying to reach the United States, walk towards the U.S. Consulate during a demonstration in Tijuana, Mexico, December 11, 2018.
” Immigration done the correct way can be a beautiful thing, but to force yourself upon others, only breeds ugliness and hatred ‘.                                                                                 *** BowlingChef ***                  I totally get the fact that some of the legit Immigrants are looking for a place better than their current residence, as some of the smaller countries either just can’t handle taking care of their people, or just quite simply…….. Are taking complete advantage of them, to the point that they are just a pawn on the chess board of their country. Now with that said, we all here on this planet called Earth, walk our paths through this journey of life. With this journey comes struggles and their is no one exempt from these struggles, just that we as an Individual, have to figure out for ourselves  how to over come the struggles, so we can move forward better and stronger and to do this, we simply can not force ourselves on others and then expect them to foot the bill of our struggles.                   When we work hard and really achieve good things in our lives, it is not about these things we have, as it is all about the work and just how good we feel deep inside ourselves, when we achieve all that we have. That special feeling deep within, when we achieve success, really means a lot more to us, the problem is that, we within this Society have taken on this me against the World attitude and have lost all the feelings that are deep within ourselves.                     We all start out and end this journey the same way, even though some may think they are more special than another? The only thing that differs along this journey is the path we each take, sometimes we get led down a path and sometimes we blaze our own path, either way we are suppose to make the path we choose, as simple as we can and as beautiful as we can, so we can make this journey enjoyable and full of peace and happiness. Now the peace and the happiness may be our goal, but there is this thing called ” Life Events” that will if we let them, control totally of who we truly are. These life events may come to us from our actions as we walk our paths, but for the most part, these events come to us from those around us. The facts are the facts and there are some that, will go out of their way to control all those around them, just so they can seem to all as the most powerful of us all.                       Not everybody can achieve top positions within the company that they work, but we all can achieve greatness throughout this journey of life. just by how we walk our paths with our actions, walk our paths with much respect, love and dignity of each other, as we honor each other always. Life is funny in the way that, we get back for what we put into it, like if we don’t put in anything, then we get back nothing, leaving us to struggle, when we try to be very controlling of all that is around us, then all we get is, never to be satisfied of anything, with zero substance of anything in our lives, we are never truly satisfied with our non actions, as this breeds great inactivity, even if we think our actions are second to none, with no care for those around us.                        Now a lot of these Immigrants that are trying to come to America just might be legit, but a good majority just want to come here to sponge off of us Americans, to bring great chaos, hatred and ugliness and do not care of who they hurt with real pain? There are some of these Refugee’s that, just want to come here to disrupt, they do not want to be better moving forward and you have them becoming lazy, while they do nothing but bring the hurt of real pain, to all those around them.  ” The green grass of the pasture, just might be green where you are, but not as green where you want to be”  ” This journey of life may be all the same to us all, it is our paths that differ with none being greater than the other”  ”  ” There is a big difference between “ILLEGAL” Immigration and Immigration done the correct way” 

The Storm factor of life……

You notice how in the Winter we get into these weather patterns, that seem like it snows everyday and it gets brutally cold, so cold you get a brain freeze like your eating ice cream too fast, this is part of all our lives as Mother Nature doesn’t discriminate where she brings her wrath, we can’t control Mother Nature and this is part of the Winter season, which is one of the four seasons we all go through together.

We have Candidates within our Government that shouldn’t be and do nothing for the people in which voted them in, instead they work on their own agendas and become engulfed in a perfect “me” world. Then you have people that don’t vote and say they don’t, but are the first to complain when things go sour, they use the excuse that ” my vote doesn’t count”? I have news for you, with many attitudes like this, explains totally why we do not have any good politicians, that actually put their money where their mouth is.

We all walk a path on a journey through life, this journey is not perfect for anybody, we the people are the ones making this journey hard for each other, all we do is complain when we don’t get our way, we live in a region that brings snow in the winter, but yet you complain every time, we don’t like a person within the Government and complain of the job they do, but yet you don’t vote? We want to control everything, but we can’t even control ourselves? The problem doesn’t lie in just a few, it lies with each and every one of us as People of this Society.

People are unique to each other, but yet are very similar in many ways, true some may look differently than others, but this is what God had in mind, when he made us unique to each other, God just didn’t figure on that, we as people would take this uniqueness to a whole new level. We like to put ourselves above one another and when we can’t do that we lash out at each other, we will do anything to be a leader and this proves that yes we are animalistic, just that we are supposed to be smarter and better than all the other animals on this planet.

The journey of life for some may be short, others a little longer, but the journey is still the same, we all need to be better at coinciding with each, like God envisioned when  he created all of Mankind. God isn’t happy at what we are doing now, all the tragedies, fires, weather events ect… Are signs from God, for us to change what we are doing, cause the path we all are on now, is all about destruction and God worked to hard to see his creation ruined. We all walk a path this path is unique to us as, we chose this path in which to walk along this journey we all walk through life, to be happy, peaceful and while showing our love of self’s, to each other everyday.

” We the people are our own worst enemies, change is needed so we all can coincide instead of showing hatred of each other”

” People are unique to each other, we are all similar and equal as well, just that we are not true to ourselves to see it”

This Journey called Life

We all walk a path along this Journey,
we may take different paths,
the Journey stays the same,
there may be no perfect path,
as all the paths have there obstacles,
we all learn to stay clean with our baths,
but the path we own with no blame,
let us walk these paths with no wrath,
let’s walk correctly to show our twinckle.
as our path we walk together in harmony.

” A Journey is what we all walk through in life and there are many paths in achieving our goals along this Journey”

” There is no perfect path on our Journey through life, we just need confidence in ourselves, in order to achieve these goals and overcome anything that comes before us, on our path through our Journey of life”

Taking a road less traveled

We as Human Beings are born into this World, we start our Journey’s as precious little babies, that need to be nourished and cared for and taught how to survive within a Society.
Sometimes our paths are laid out for us, like our clothing on our beds, but in most cases we learn the hard way and are too stubborn to take advice from others around us, as we choose our own paths to walk along our Journey of life.
We all want to be famous, we all want to be rich, we all want others to worship the ground in which we walk, we all want to be the next Einstein, with a theory that no one has even thought of yet, not everybody can be all these things, a matter of fact these types are far and few between, if you research back in time, to a point where Mankind first started, you will find it is alot easier to find these Individuals, than the Individuals that just walked their Journey through life and did it with no reckcognition.
Not everybody can be famous and those that are, have blazed their trails on roads that were less traveled, these roads were unknown til they were blazed, they also took alot of blood, sweat and tears to blaze also, when we travel roads that are unknown, is when we open doors of fear within us, sometimes this fear turns us into something/someone we are not, this fear will have us do things we usally would not if we let it, this fear can harm us more than we know if we don’t acknowledge it before it’s too late, this fear is within all of us and will always come out when we least expect it.
There is no wrong path on our Journey, whether we take a road traveled by all, or we take a road less traveled, we have to be ready for anything that may cross our path, we can’t be stubborn with others, as everybody can help even in the smallest ways, we just have to be able to except that help with openess and gratitude, cause when we do it right, Jesus is always there to guide us on our path, along our Journey of life.
No matter what path we chose along our Journey, no matter what we encounter and how we handle ourselves, even when the pain and fear seems to strong, when we stay true to ourselves and to others around us, Jesus will be there to guide us, back to the path of rightousness, so we all can be happy on our Journey of life, whether we are on the road of many traveled, or the road of less traveled, Jesus don’t judge, he welcomes all as they pass by on the road of life.

” The road less traveled may be a road of the unknown, but it don’t have to be a road of fear”

” Jesus never judges those in need, he never pushes away anybody, no matter what road you may have taken”
