The Fire in the sky………..

What a beautiful sunset to cap of a beautiful day within nature. The sky is burning in the flames of the sun, just as the fire burns within each of us, we all have that flame within us, to achieve all we want to achieve, as we get older that flame seems to die out a bit, but does it really die out? It only seems like it does, because we loose our focus, we lose the drive to keep the flames burning within, we then get so caught up in all the crap around us, we then forget to stoke our own fire, we look at all around us in a different way, the focus we once had becomes clouded as we do not see things as we once did. Life is not all as soft as a Rose pedal, or the path we walk is not always paved, we always have to work hard for what we want and there are no exceptions, even the filthy rich have to work hard at keeping their wealth, or their wealth will disappear as quick as it came.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have to work every day to make the path as smooth as we can, the one thing we can not do is, count on another to help in the up keep of the path, unlike some might think like one of those Socialists types, you can’t take from one to help another along, especially the fact that those you may be taking from, are out there working hard to keep their paths clear, so why should some not have to work at clearing their path? Why should some take something that they really didn’t work for? There is this thing called pride and with pride, it makes you have a good feeling within, it helps you with self confidence to achieve all you want to achieve, without the pride and without the confidence, then the fire within you really does not burn as it should, as a matter of fact, that fire within becomes extinguished, making you cold inside with no true feelings moving forward.

Camping within Mother Nature is a lot more than just setting up a tent, setting up a piece of land just for peace and quiet, the days of camping is to unwind from the daily grind, explore and see things for which you normally would not see, not just see a sunset as beautiful as this, but also a sunrise just as much, there is a lot more to this journey through life, than the usual daily grind we all live, true we can get so caught up in the daily grind, that we then forget to stoke our fire within, which we then forget to get out and explore to see things we never see normally, sometimes we make a choice to stay within the world we are in, then that becomes our choice and we really can not blame another for that choice we have made, nor can we expect another to give up their choice, just because we do not like the choice we have made.

Sometimes life will bring us discomfort, it will bring us things that gives us much pain and hurt, through that pain and hurt is also when we become so clouded within, that the fire within us, will become extinguished like the rain fall over the campfire, when we are within the clouds it becomes very hard to see anything, even the path for which we are walking and instead of working at cleaning up the path, we just wander trying to hide our pain and hurt, so we can look as normal as we can. Sometimes the discomfort is part of what we are doing and sometimes, the discomfort comes from others who will bring it to us, simply because they try to seem more powerful to those around them? Either way it is up to us to clear the clouds of pain and hurt, so we than can feel good of ourselves, feel total confidence in ourselves, so we to can achieve all we want to achieve.

A trip within Mother Nature to explore and see things we normally would not see, is better than any therapy, it will help us unwind, it will help us clear the clouds from our judgments, so we than can see all the beauty around us, as we look out into the horizon and with a clear mind, we than can see that the horizon is looking back at us, we also notice that all our other senses are waking up to what is around us, we find that yes we do have these things of feelings within us, just that they were buried so deep within, that like the fire within, they were lost within the clouds that engulfed us. This journey through life is not about us waiting for another to give us everything, it’s not about just being consumed within the daily grind, there is so much more to this journey, we just have to have the confidence in ourselves to get out there and explore all that it has to offer and with this confidence, we will find that we have these feelings within us, that need to be stoked like the fire within, so as we walk our paths through this journey, we can do so in peace and happiness always.

” As the fire is within the sky, so to is there a fire within each of us as well to fuel ourselves to achieve all we want to achieve”

” As the sunset comes to put the sky to sleep for the night, so does the sunrise come to wake the sky up for the coming day”

” Socialism never works, just look at the current country of Venezuela”

” Discomfort will bring us pain and hurt, but to bring us comfort we all need to work hard and the pain and hurt will get better moving forward”

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”
