Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

The True colors……….

The true colors always come out through the rain, they also come out when you use your head that holds your brains for a hat rack, instead of actually using it to become better and stronger moving forward. There is way too much of us taking action, before we actually think through the action  and the consequences of the all the reactions to the actions. We the people are what’s wrong with this Society and all hatred and ugliness all around us, we the people can also end this hatred and ugliness, if only we actually use our heads as it should be used and not, for a hat rack to place your hat upon.

Then there is the Media companies that would rather report on their agendas, instead of actually reporting the true facts. They have a story they work on, they research the story and all the facts, but instead of bringing us the facts, they only bring us what not only pertains to their agendas, but what will bring the most drama to an already drama filled Society. Take Fox 25 news for instance, they are now Boston 25 news, as Cox media group bought this local news station and now, instead of separating themselves from the rest of the media groups, they have come together, in order to bring us a watered down portion of the news, not too mention they repeat themselves over and over, as to drill in all our heads the hate, instead of drilling the facts in our heads and it is all about the greed, so they can have big profits to live their plush lifestyles, unlike we the people who scrape by just to make ends meet.

There really is not a reporter today that truly knows how to write from the heart anymore, as the Media group for which they work, will not let them and dictate of how they should be writing, or simply you do not work here anymore. They submit a story or an article and the Editor’s, the Proof readers and the Exec’s at the top, will have them water it down to where a lot of facts are left out, that only brings the drama to us, plus the stories they do print, will only give one side, that leaves us all wondering of what is true and what is fake. It is kind of like when you keep telling yourself and others the same lie, eventually you actually believe in that lie, well……………….The media groups have that same philosophy when bringing us what we think is news?

There are some real good writer’s out there, but those within these media groups have become like Robots and only write as the media group they belong in want them to write. When it comes to our President Donald Trump, do you think he is really hated by all, as these media groups want us to believe? Hell no!!! There are far more in reality that actually like him and think he is doing a great job as President, than what the Media would want us to think. The media groups only want us to hate on our President, simply because he is not on the left like all that are part of these media groups are.

You want fair and balanced reporting,  the time is now that we stand up to all these media groups by not buying their product, or listening to their rhetoric. The same goes for all the advertising commercials that advertise a product for us to buy, I mean come on now, a lot of what the commercials do is so fake, it is not even funny anymore, they create these jingles that catch our attention and that sticks within our heads, just to get us to buy their product, but only those that fall for their falseness or trickery may buy, but those of us well informed consumers will see right through them and go purchase a product that not only is reliable, but will stand the test of time, without falling apart while you are still paying for it. All in all these media groups and the corporations that sell us a product, are banking on us all to be dumb and fall for tactics and trickery, but when we all are smarter and well informed, then just maybe all will change for the better, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness, without all the drama and hate trying to control our every step.

 

” When it rains it pours as the true colors of life always shine when the rain stops and the sun shines”

” Real writers do know how to write, it’s these media groups that have turned them into Robots, instead of being able to write from the heart.

” When the writing comes from the heart you really do not need to change a word before you take it to print”

” The fake news is out there, you just have to be smarter and weed through all the crap”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Change will come to all of us along our Journey of Life…..

” This is a post that I wrote a couple years ago and I chose this pix as it used to be home of the Old Man of the Mountain in New Hampshire. With a few tweaks this post shows that through change, we all can walk our paths peacefully, while being happy along our journey of life”

” This journey through life really is too short to have it bring us great pain and sorrow, but through change and done correctly, we all can walk our paths in peace and be stronger and better moving forward”

 

 

Our Journey of life is far different, than any journey or trek we take, in a vacation sort of way, a vacation is a journey that we set up and control, so we can get away from reality for a bit and unwind to also relax, a Journey we all walk through life, is reality and a journey that we can’t control where we go, only walk the journey correctly, in order to make it a safe and happy passage.

Throughout this Journey of life, we as Humans go through many changes, these changes comes to us in many different ways, these changes can also be very ugly for us if we let them control our being, as these changes come to us, yes we will not accept them at first, that is perfectly okay, it is a natural feeling within all of us, when we are resistant to these changes, is when we become something we truly are not, if God thought these changes were bad for us, he wouldn’t allow these changes to come to us along our journey of life.

Change is good for the soul, if we handle them correctly and learn to accept, instead of not acknowledging that they happen for a reason, to help us be better and stronger moving forward on our paths of our journey of life.

The Journey of our vacations, is very different than our journey of life, the journey of life is all our realities and how we walk our paths through life, these changes come to us at the cross roads of our paths, God puts them there for us to see them, but it is up to us to truly see them and to acknowledge them, so we can accept them and make our journeys better and stronger moving forward, there is so much more to life than all the materialistic things we acquire, it is the spiritualistic things that drive us to walking our journey being safe, while moving forward with the strength to be better, not just for ourselves, but for all we meet along our journey.

When change comes to us, it happens in many ways, sometimes change is needed and sometimes it is unwanted, but what makes all change very ugly, is us as Humans not accepting it and resisting it, which makes us become bitter and become something/someone we are truly not.

Change is something we all go through along our journeys, change could be something very simple to us, like not putting sugar in your coffee, or other change can be very difficult, like a lifestyle change, which the latter is usually the one most likely to be resisted, but when we  resist this change, is the start of us moving forward being someone we are not and not truly  being ourselves, another type of change we deal with is, when a life event happens to us, these events come to us in many ways, just like change comes to us,  these events can be very emotional and painful to us as well, which is when we change ourselves in ways that truly isn’t who we are, change will happen to all of us as we walk our paths, it is part of the journey that God try’s to guide us into the right direction, it is how we deal with the change that makes us into who we are, the choice is always given to us by God, we can either accept or resist the change, but each will either make our paths along our journey of life be very emotional and much pain, or we can be in peace to be better and stronger moving forward.

” Change is a part of life, we can accept or resist, then either way we have to live with our choice, by becoming someone we truly are not”

” Change can be ugly, or change can be beautiful, the choice is ours to make as we walk our journeys of life”

” God puts this change at our crossroads of our paths, the choice is ours to accept or resist all these changes”

The Boston Sports theme……….

Today in the Boston sports scene this day of April 15th 2015, had two huge stories happen, pretty much at almost the same time. Arron Hernandez was convicted of murder in the 1st degree and Peter Chiarelli the general manager of the Boston Bruins was fired from the team.

Arron Hernandez was a gifted athlete and could excel in the sport of football and as we all seen from him on the field, his actions proved he was gifted and could play, the team he played for also seen his gift and awarded him 40 million to play for them, Arron came from nothing and transformed into a very wealthy Individual, who had the world in the palm of his hands and now all has been taken from him, with zero to show for his gift and talent.

The guilty verdict of Arron Hernandez, when you look deeply into the reality of the situation, proves just how troubled a lot of Individuals are within this Society we all live. When you look deeply into Arron’s eyes at the time the verdict was read, you can clearly see he has issues which he buried his true feelings and emotions, as well as his true empathy of himself and those around him. Arron was with out a doubt, living a double life while he was playing professional football.

We all within this Society are guilty of burying our true self’s and our empathy of ourselves and others around us, but this verdict of Hernandez and others like him, only takes it to the next level. When harm comes to us and we don’t acknowledge the harm correctly, we then look to other ways, in order to relieve ourselves of this harm, this includes hiding who we truly are and hiding our true feelings and emotions, which we then become clouded in our judgements and make stupid decisions, without truly thinking of the ramifications of our actions. True Arron received what he deserved, but if he addressed his issues before the pain of the issues became so great, where he did whatever he needed to make the pain go away, then he may not be in the situation he is now and just maybe, he could of lived a very good and plush lifestyle, with the big money he was awarded, from the team he played professional football for. Let this be a wake up call for all of us throughout Society, do we want to go down the same path as Arron Hernandez, or do we want to correctly fix our issues, so we can walk a path along our journey of life that brings us peace and much happiness throughout our lives?

The Boston Bruins has been my favorite hockey team throughout my life, I understand the game of hockey inside and out, the decision to relieve Peter Chiarelli the general manager of his duties, was the correct one by the Bruins, as Peter did nothing to make this team better this season and give coach Claude the necessary tools to do his job better. Peter also subtracted players who were the identity and chemistry of this team without replacing them, when you subtract quality from anything and not add back anything, eventually you end up with zero with nothing to show. I understand to make a decision to release someone of their duties is very hard at any level, with that said my respect for Cam Neely just grew bigger than it was. This decision was the right one to make, so the Bruins can move forward to be better and get back at playing the game of hockey, so they can be successful at bringing the Stanly cup back to the City of Boston, for the organization and fans to enjoy.

” I bleed black and gold, the true colors of a great organization of the Boston Bruins”

” to wear the spoked B on your hockey jersey, is that of pride and passion for a sport of which you love”

” Arron Hernandez was a gifted and talented football player, now with his clouded judgements and bad decisions, will have these talents rot in a jail cell the rest of his life”

Being Real / Portraying Fake Reality

In this Society in which we live today, it is very easy to get caught up in portraying a fake Identity, in this Society there is no room for showing weakness, for you will be stomped on and left behind.
When you have been harmed and are troubled, the Media the way they are, will highlight this no matter what the circumstance of the situation, so we then hide within ourselves, put forth a fake self, to try to move forward like nothing happened, without fixing the problem as it happened.
In our Society with all the Advertising and music video’s etc… This shows just how fake we have become, in order for the automobile companies to sell a car, they need to fix up a lady, in the most sexy way, so you think she will come with the selling of the car? They also show commercials of the car driving a 100mph down a city street? Like where are the Police cars pulling them over for speeding? In this Society being fake is what sells and being real, is just boring and uncool?
Being fake is not only uncool, it shows weakness and just how shallow we have become in this Society, we all have our troubling times, times we want to forget so we can move forward with strength, but when we hide within our selves and put forth a fake identity, only compounds our issues even more, without adressing what is truly wrong with ourselves, seeing all these commercials and music video’s and just how many people out there thinking that there is nothing wrong with them, shows just how fake we in this Society have become.
When we are portraying a fake self, only shows that we are not true to ourselves, so how can we be true to other’s? Impossible is the word that comes to mind, it is impossible to be true to other’s, when we can’t be true to ourselves. This Society of being fake, begins with each and every one of us and until we fix ourselves, our Society will never change for the better.
Now granted some of us may be troubled more than other’s, but this is no excuse for us to take advantage of each other, for our own personal gain. God didn’t create us for this reason, he created us to show more empathy of each other, help each other throughout our Journey, be true to ourselves instead of portraying what we are not, so we can be real with each other, which will show strength and have no signs of weakness, we only have this one Journey, whether it is long or short, if we be true to ourselves while being true to other’s, our Journey will well worth the trip and full of happiness and strength.

” Being fake in anything, only hurts us further in life”

” Reality is just that, being real to everyone and anything”

Cosmos the TV show, good food for thought

Cosmos on sunday night at 9:00p is a good imformative show, has alot of interesting information of the planet Earth, as well as from all over space and beyond.
This show gives us a good idea of where we came from, even before all Mankind, talks about how things happen before our time and how similar things are happening now, which solidifies the theory of our life cycle, a life cycle is a big circle we all travel along our journey of life.
This life cycle that makes up our lives, shows just how we as Humans have evolved through time, it shows just how smart we are, as well as highlight how dumb we can be also, throughout the history of the planet Earth, a lot of events have happened to Earth, much of these events are happening once again, but instead of “looking to the past, to see farther in the future”, we in this Society think that nothing will ever effect us like those of the past, cause we have become to arrogant, don’t take the time to see what is right in front of us and simply have only come to think of ourselves, instead of those around us.
The show Cosmos is good food for thought, it gives us a better understanding of how all species on Earth have survived here, since before Mankind, think about a Chef, he needs the right ingrediants to be able to create a gourmet meal, well we as Humans are very similar, as we need the right information in able to make ourselves better become stronger, so we don’t make the same mistakes as our Anchestor’s, in order for our Society to be better and stronger as well.
When we don’t make the same mistakes and learn from them, it not only helps ourselves, but helps our Society and all other Societies to come, but if we keep making the same mistakes, then life we know and life as we see it, will come to an end. This may never happen in the lifetime of some of us, but it is a harsh reality for some Societies down the path of Earth itself.
We as Humans are the smartest of the Species here on Earth, but we can also be so dumb with our actions and what we do with our knowledge, nobody ever said life was easy, there are no textbooks for us to read to make life easy also, life only seems easier when “we be safe and make good decisions”, it is our actions and how we learn from past mistakes, that we make our lives better and stronger, so all of Society will then be better and stronger.
When we really look at our Life Cycle, see where things went wrong in the past, we than can look at how to fix that link in the cycle, so all other Societies to come, don’t have to live through the same cycle mistakes, as those Societies before them. We as Humans can be so smart, but we take the easy way out, that shows just how lazy and dumb we can be.

” Looking to the past, to see farther in the future”

” We be safe and make good decisions”

” Cosmos may be a show, but it is the real Cosmos for us to learn and be better through life”
