Falling Pine needles on the increase

          The season of Fall….such a beautiful time of year, some may say it is too cold, while others say it is just right. When you venture outside and go trekking through the woods, you then become engulfed in all the true and natural beauty around you, then as the leaves on the tree’s turn colors, now the same beauty can simply take your breathe away.

When you look deeply into this picture and not look just at what is in front of you, you can see that there are more than just people walking their paths along there journey of life, there are also the tree’s and plant life that live and breathe as we do. There are many kinds of plant life that come in abundance of different shapes and sizes, just as we do as Humans throughout Mankind. Then as you can see in the season of Fall, with all the different colors of the leaves, the tree’s go through changes just like we do with the difference being, we as Humans a lot of times, don’t acknowledge and resist  change when it comes before us along our paths.

Now as the leaves from the tree’s turn color and fall to the ground during the season of Fall, every three to four years, the Evergreen tree’s drop all their pine needles in a process called ” Natural Needle Cast”, during this season of Fall 2015, I have noticed an increase of pine needles on the ground with every time I go out with the leaf blower and blow the leaves away. ” Natural Needle Cast”? this is a process I have never heard before, so I researched it and found that not only what this process was, but also found that the tree’s also stress as we do within our lives. ” Environmental Stress”, is what makes the Pine tree’s shed their needles every three to four years and we thought it was only we the people throughout Society, that stress about anything? Environmental Stress is a process throughout Nature and is simply normal, which brings needed change to help the Plant life become stronger and better moving forward, as most of the Stress we bring on to ourselves is not normal, it brings more hurt and pain to our already struggling lives and makes us become someone we are truly not. Life can be hard enough without all this added pressure and stress, the tree’s follow a process and stick to a routine, we as Humans within this Society have no structure and the only thing routine, is the process in which we wake, to get ready for work each and every day. Stress is an invisible thing we let get to us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, when we better understand of everything around us and why things happen, then there is nothing to stress about, with no stress we all can walk our paths through this journey, peacefully and with much happiness everyday.

” Let the Pine needles fall, as they let out a bit of stress to become better and stronger moving forward”

” Environmental stress brings no pain towards the tree’s and plant life, only helps them to grow further along their journey through life”

” The season of fall has has much beauty to show us everyday, what we don’t realize is the Environmental stress of the plants and the tree’s, that makes them better and stronger moving forward”

Trekking through the Wilderness and exploring what we normally don’t see

          Throughout our Society of today and as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all get caught up in the everyday living, the going to work to earn money needed, in order to provide for ourselves and our families, we also get caught into our comfort zones to try to stay safe, without any unnecessary harm coming to us. When we are in these comfort zones we don’t look at what is all around us, as we only see what we want to see, without exploring and learning more so we can be better and stronger along this journey through life.

Trekking through the Wilderness will get us outdoors to explore and see what is around us within places we normally wouldn’t go, We totally see that there is a beautiful side to our journey through life, instead of the grind of work to make ends meet, we also find it relaxing to get outside and see the true beauty of the Wilderness and all the different kinds of animal life, as well as all the different varieties of plant life, that we don’t see within the thickly settled civilization in which we live. The great outdoors is also a way for us to take a deep breathe of the clean fresh air, without all the smog of the city life in our everyday lives,

We throughout Mankind are explorers and exploring is what we have done through many years from the start of our existence, without the exploring than our lives become dull and ordinary, we don’t learn and understand new things, so we can become better and stronger along our paths of our journey through life. We don’t have to go hike up any big mountains, just a simple nature trek along some little trail that we would never of even known it was there, unless we go explore it. When we trek through the Wilderness not only does it relax and let us breathe in clean fresh air, it also gets us in touch with our other senses that we forget we have, living within our comfort zones of our everyday living. Some may not like the idea of doing something new and different but this is how we grow in our lives, this is how we better understand everything around us and this is how we learn of everything around us.

A trail like this one in the picture you can see has a dense amount of plant life, some of these plants we never see in our everyday lives, which makes it fun to learn of them so we can have fun along this trail, this trail will also hold something different at every turn along our way through it, just as our path we take through this journey of life. While we walk along this trail the other sense we take for granted, is our keen sense of hearing, as the quietness of the trail, has us hear everything that is around us, like the beautiful sound of the Birds chirping and singing through their lives, as they to walk or fly their paths along their journey through life. There are many paths through the journey of life and for us the fun part is exploring them, so we can learn to be better and stronger, while we step outside our comfort zones, to truly be who we really are and that is an explorer, like the many before us throughout mankind.

” To step outside our comfort zone may be hard for some to do, but when we do it we find that there is a lot more beauty around us, than we thought there ever was”

” In the beginning of Mankind we were all explorers, we still are just that we have gotten away from it and stopped  learning of whats around us, so we can truly be who we are”

” Comfort zones keep us from any harm that may come to us, but we do need to step outside them to be better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey through life and truly be who we are”

Diversity is everywhere, no matter where you go……….

            Even as you venture outside in the great outdoors, you will see Diversity all around you. As you go trekking through the wilderness and look at all that is around, you will find that even the plant life has many different varieties and yes they are living and breathing just as we throughout Mankind.  You can see all the different plant life within this picture and the one that stands out the most is the Birch tree in the middle of the picture, what you don’t see are these trees attacking each other, simply because they are different from each other, this is only done by us as Humans throughout Mankind.

Just because we may look different from each other, is not a good enough reason for us to attack each other, whether we do it physically or mentally, there is no reason good enough for this behavior at all. Some of us have different color skin, some may have different faiths, some have different nationalities, this is what’s suppose to make us better from one Society to another, not too mention help us grow healthy and happy, like all the plant life we see around us, when we trek through the wilderness of the great outdoors.

Just because someone looks different than we ourselves, does not mean they are different at all, they do bleed red blood and have all the same features as each of us, maybe one was born or maybe lost a limb from a tragic event, this isn’t reason to make fun of them, or simply ignore their existence, they to have the same feelings as each one of us and they do cry when we ridicule them just so we can look to be stronger than them, they still have a brain and a mind like all others and most of the time, they are much smarter then the ones that are ridiculing them. Then there are other people throughout this Society that are less fortunate than others, they may struggle to find food for their meals, or maybe don’t have a roof over their heads for warmth and comfort? This is no reason to look down on them and put yourself above them, instead we should show more Empathy and Remorse for them, so they can find the strength to be better, instead of just trying to be invisible from the rest of us. We throughout Mankind are our own worst enemies and all the problems throughout this Society are our own fault, whether we want to own up to it or not?

There are many varieties of Humans, just like there are many varieties of plant life, through this Diversity is how we grow to be stronger and better on our paths of this journey through life and we can be as healthy and happy as all the plant life throughout the Forests that we trek through as we explore. The biggest thing that is missing throughout this Society is, there is not enough Empathy or Remorse shown towards each other anymore, instead we try to get ahead of each other, by stepping on each others shoe shine and messing up each others shine, without caring for the mess we leave behind.

Diversity is everywhere as you look around, we all have a purpose on this journey through life, just that each of us have to find that purpose, the problem lies when we are busy messing up each others shine and we get wrapped up in offending each other, some may try to use the race card as a way of messing up the shine even more? I have a NEWS FLASH!!! There is no such thing as a race card, just that we need to use more Empathy of each other, put ourselves in the shoes of the ones we are messing up the shine, so we then can see that they to have feelings as we do. Just as all the plant life sway in the wind without a worry, we to can sway through this journey of life with no worries, when we walk our paths of this journey the right way and clearly see all the Diversity around us, show our true Empathy of each other, than all our paths of this journey through life, will be of peace, happiness and as healthy as we want to be, while the whole Society grows and becomes stronger than the Societies of the past.

” Diversity is everywhere around us, we just have to show more empathy and remorse, to let the Diversity grow in a healthy way”

”  The plant life throughout the great outdoors, has all the same Diversity as we do throughout all Mankind”

” There is no race card, this is a made up card by we the people throughout this Society”

” Empathy is a feeling deep within all of us throughout Mankind, it’s there for us to put ourselves in the shoes of others instead of messing up there shine, just for our own personal gain”

Many varieties of everything along this Journey through life

Waterfall           Within this picture you can clearly see all the many varieties of plant life, along side this cascade of water, that carves it’s path on it’s journey. Plants are living and breathing, just as we throughout Mankind do as we exist on this journey through life. The Plant world also comes with many varieties, just as we as Humans do, throughout Mankind.

Like the cascade of water in this picture, we throughout Mankind either carve our own paths, or follow a path throughout our journey of life, as their are many varieties of everything all around us. As the water flows and does it’s thing, it coincides with and helps the plants grow, by providing it some fresh source of nutrition, so they can be vibrant throughout their journey through life. Everything within life, just as we throughout Society serve a purpose along this Journey of life, just that we have to find that purpose, so we can thrive throughout our paths along this journey of life.

With the way Society is going today, in this fast paced I want it now atmosphere we have created, it is very hard for anybody/anything to find any purpose, let alone be able to coincide with each other along this journey through life. We have to be better at the little things, which we think don’t matter for anything. It’s the little things that bring great things to us along our path of our journey. We also have to do a better job at understanding these Life events that happen to us, yes we all have some kind of event that happens to us and they bring us great pain as well, if we don’t understand better, or fix the issues when they happen, so we can truly move forward, to be better and stronger along our paths of our journey through life.

This Journey through life can be either a short one, or a long one, nobody knows except our Lord God who is the creator of all Mankind. This is the reason why we need to do it right the first time, cause their is no second time, once the journey comes to an end and yes it will end, we just don’t know the when, where or why. We all have to be better at understanding these issues of the events that happen, so we can be better and truly find our purpose along this journey of life. Some may be lucky enough to find their purpose early along their path, while others don’t find it til later along their journey? It is all up to the Individual and how much confidence and belief you have in yourself, as well as in Jesus Christ, the only son of our Father the Lord God. Jesus came to us to walk his journey through his life, showing and teaching us the true way to the path of righteousness, we throughout this Society have become lost, to the true teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ.

These events can bring great pain to us, as well as cloud our judgements and the ability to make good decisions, which we then become lost throughout this journey and never find our true purpose of our existence while we walk our paths along this journey through life. To truly find your purpose, we need to be confident and totally believe in ourselves, as well as believe in Jesus Christ, with this belief then comes the faith and when we have faith, then there is always hope, to which we then can accomplish anything we set our minds to and the ability to achieve great things along this journey of life. So as these events come to us, it is important we control and fix these issues, before they control who we really are and become someone we are not. This journey through life may have many varieties of everything within it, but when we walk our paths correctly, we all can coincide better throughout this journey and be better for whatever that may cross our paths.

” Life events can control who we are if we let them, which is why we have to fix our issues as they happen, to be able to be confident with belief and faith in all we do”

” Our paths are either created from our own actions, or we may follow an existing path? Either way we have to be better at fixing our issues so we can be better moving forward along this path of the journey through life”

There is Beauty in everything that is around us………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

To some that look at this picture may only see what is in the picture, but to truly see what is the beauty of this picture, you have to stop and really look at each individual item within this picture, this is what Mayor Tom Menino did everyday of his 20 year tenure within the city of Boston.

Each one of these items within this picture has a purpose, not just of itself but for each other, as well as us as Human beings, you have a blue sky with clouds, that bring rain and sunshine that help feed all this plant life, you also have a body of water that holds and stores this rain and within this body of water, there is more plant life as well as different kinds of Amphibious animals that also live and breathe on this planet Earth, that we all share.

There is so much beauty around us, it is just that we don’t take the time to stop and look around at it all, Mayor Menino did just that as he walked the streets of Boston, he also didn’t over look one thing, in order to help another, he showed so much diversity for everything in which he looked at, true we as Human Beings are very unique in our own way, but we are all very similar in that we are Human Beings and walk a path along our journey of life, Mayor Menino saw all the uniqueness within us all and took action to help us all thrive to be better, so the city of Boston can be better for all that come walk their journey’s within it.

Mayor Menino’s funeral was done in a very special way, with close to 1000 people within the church it was full of people from all walks of life, it showed people coming together to celebrate the life of a great man, not just people but a huge diversity of people from, big named politicians, big named sports stars, to just ordinary people from a neighborhood, all coming together for a common cause, this was what Mayor Menino was all about all 20 years of his time in the city of Boston, this was a man that didn’t judge you by your appearance, only saw the good deep within everybody he looked at, every thanksgiving he would go serve the homeless at the shelter, before returning home with his family for his own thanksgiving dinner, he would always travel into the neighborhoods and listen to the people, then took care of what he needed to so the people would be happy everyday, this was Mayor Menno doing what he loved to do.

Most all politicians will say what you want to hear just to get your vote, not Mayor Menino, when he said something he would back it up with actions, because it is what he loved to do, most politicians when they get elected, stay within their office and forget about the ones that put them there, they become engulfed in a world that they portray which is usually a world of make believe and then they keep it going, by becoming something/someone in which they are not, Mayor Menino was real and genuine, which is a trait that today’s politician doesn’t have, Mayor Menino also treated everybody with respect and dignity, which are two things we all as Human Beings are guilty of not doing amongst each other, which explains all the bitterness and hatred that surrounds us today.

Let us all learn from the ways of Mayor Menino and let us all truly see the message he left us from his funeral, when we do it correctly and treat everybody around us with respect and dignity, no matter who or what is around you, all our paths along our journey of life, will be better and stronger moving forward, diversity is all of us as Human Beings, as we are all unique in our own way, but yet very similar as Humans and until we all acknowledge this, there will always be bitterness and hatred around us, it is all up to each of us, to not only love ourselves but to love everybody around us, not just for show or to portray a fake self to others, but to be real and genuine, so the true love pours out of us, even without us truly knowing it is flowing out of us, so all our paths along our journey of life, is full of happiness and strength.

” to be real and genuine will always help us love and see the true beauty of everything around us”

” Diversity is each of us as Human Beings, we may be unique in our own way, but we are all very similar as well”

” respect and dignity will make us all happy, as it keeps us all strong on our paths of our journey of life”
