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”

Like sand in the hour glass……..the sunrise through time

Tree          Sunrise is the most beautiful time of the day, as it is the time to wake up and start a new day. Like the sunset is the ending of the day and just as beautiful, the sunrise is the start of the ending each and everyday. We in today’s Society take so much for granted, with each sunrise and sunset being the biggest thing we take for granted. Without a sunrise you can’t have a sunset and without a sunrise nothing will ever wake up to start a new.

You can see in this picture how the sun wakes up and clears the overnight dew from the tree, as you can see the sun winking between the limbs. The sun brings the light so all can breathe, wake up and feel alive to start fresh each and every day. Then at the end of the day, the sun sets, for some much needed rest from the energy it burns in bringing the light to all that it shines on. Just as the sun sets for it’s much needed rest, we all throughout Society, the tree’s and all other forms of life, will also get some needed rest, unless your a night Owl that enjoys burning the midnight oil.

You need to get away from the city lights and all the commotion that the city brings, so you can see the true beauty of each sunrise and sunset. Which is why I enjoy true Wilderness camping and I recommend that all should try it as well, yes true Wilderness camping means no cell phones or techy devices, as none of that will get any signal for you to use, which means total relaxation and enjoying all the true beauty that is around you. After the sun has set, it is time to sit by the campfire and get mesmerized by the burning coals, the glow of the of the coals on the bottom and the quivering flames above, is better than Yoga to clear your mind and totally relax your whole body and sole. Ah!!! how relaxed I am just thinking of this beauty, with no city lights, or sounds of a beeping horn and siren of the emergency vehicles.

To some this type of camping is too remote, as you have no electricity or running water to flush a toilet, but to a true camper, this is paradise and total relaxation. True in this Society we have forgotten how to live in remote places as this, but at the beginning of Mankind, this was the only way in which too live.

There is nothing like camping in the wilderness at the foot of a pond, waking up before the sun and jumping into a canoe or a kayak, paddling out to the middle of the pond and watching the sun wake up, what great pictures this makes, not too mention if your lucky enough, you will also see some American Bald Eagles diving into the water around you, in search for their daily breakfast. Then as everything wakes up around you during the sunrise, break out the fishing pole, to catch you some fresh catch of the day, to enjoy by the campfire later in the day. Fishing is another great way to unwind and relax and as you wait for the fish to bite, you can look around at all of Natures beauty that is around you.

We throughout Society take so much for granted, but nothing more than the sunrises and sunsets of each day. We all walk a path through this journey of life, within this fast paced Society of today, we don’t take the time to stop and enjoy what is around us, stop and smell the flowers of life, stop and enjoy watching the sun wake up with each sunrise, we don’t know how to truly relax anymore, as we all are wound up and uptight every minute of the day. The journey of life to some is short, to others is long, but if we don’t enjoy this journey while we are here, then this journey will be wasted time and full of regrets.

” Sunrise is the waking up of everything around you, sunset is when all gets some much needed rest, we throughout mankind take these for granted, cause we don’t stop to enjoy what is around you”

” There is always an ending within this journey through life, but what we over look is, there is always a new beginning that comes from all the endings”

” As the sunrise comes it is the most calm part of the day, but if you don’t wake up to see it, then this calmness will pass you by”

Don’t forget the Corpus Christi…….

Corpus Christi…… To some it is a vacation get a away, a place for ourselves to unwind, relax and re charge, so we can be renewed along our path of our journey.

Corpus Christi yet to others…… Is a total spiritual feeling we have with God and Jesus, that is not just deep within the core of a few, it is deep within the core of each and every one of us.

We celebrate this Corpus Christie today, not just within the churches we visit, but within the entire Catholic community and beyond. What is the Corpus Christi? It is the most Holy body and blood of Jesus Christ. This is what’s given us at the table of the Lord God, being the Alter that is within our church we attend weekly.

“Most of us go to church every Sunday and God welcomes us all into his house, asks us to come to his table, so we can all share this Corpus Christi”

As we all celebrate this Corpus Christie and acknowledge the most Holy body and blood, of our Savior Jesus Christ, please look around you….. really take a good long look around yourselves, so we can acknowledge all the crap going on around us and take the necessary steps, so we can all truly feel this most Holy body and blood and have complete faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ our Savior.

Just as the Pope said in his message to us this week, he said “there is too much unnecessary shootings and hatred of each other going on around us, there is too much Individualism and not enough sharing of each other”, this all comes from not knowing what the words of Corpus Christi really means, it also comes from not taking the time in our lives to do new things, or learn new ways of these new things that we let pass us by. Our paths along our journey of life is full of many things, to which we never allow ourselves to search them out, nor do we allow ourselves to have complete faith in things we can not see.

Just because you can not see something, doesn’t mean it does not exist. They say there are many nutrients and vitamins in the fruits and vegetables we eat? Have you actually seen these nutrients and vitamins? But yet we all believe in what we hear, cause we all want to be healthy. The Corpus Christi and Jesus Christ are very much the same, we in this Society have never seen them, so we need to believe with our hearts and souls, so can celebrate this Corpus Christi today and truly except the most Holy body and blood and cleanse ourselves of all the bad, so the good will shine in us all…always.

We see all the shootings and hatred around us everyday, so this becomes our reality, we don’t see Jesus Christ so to some, they don’t believe and have a hard time in having true faith in anything in their lives.

” just because you can’t see something, does not mean it does not truly exist”. This is why when God created Mankind, he did so for us all to be unique to each other, we in this Society have taken this uniqueness and spun it in a direction, that has turned us all against each other, as you can see by all the unnecessary shootings and hatred that surrounds us today. What we truly need is to, see what the Corpus Christi really is, except the most Holy body and blood within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this with each other, so all our paths along this journey of life, can be walked in peace by all, while we all become stronger and better, to achieve anything that may cross our paths.

” The Corpus Christi is more than just a place, it is the most Holy body and blood of Jesus Christ, for all of us to share and spread it throughout, with each other”

” To truly believe in the most Holy body and blood of Jesus Christ, we first have to look deeply into what we see”
