” Climbing to the summit of the mountain may take time and work, but the reward at the summit makes all the work well worth the trip”
You know as we walk our paths through this journey of life, there is nothing that is handed to us, the path is not lined with rose petals or as smooth as silk, quite often the thorns from the Roses are what we have to navigate around, and those thorns will prick us to have us feel the pain with our blood leaking out within the paths that we walk. Just as the climb up the mountain takes work, so does the walk on our paths through this journey of life.
The walk up the mountain will come with some obstacles to overcome, with each step along the trail, there will be very different views and very different outlooks of those views, we may meet up with a wild animal that may force us to do things we normally would not, then there are the streams that need to be crossed hopefully without getting wet? Then there is the weather that can change in the blink of an eye, especially the higher you are on the mountain, There is so much to the hike up the mountain, but as we reach the summit with such amazing views, all is forgotten as we enjoy what we see at the top of the mountain.
The paths of this journey very much like the climb up the mountain will come with its obstacles and hurdles, yes we do have to navigate around them and they will also knock us down as well, but it is never about the way we fall, as it is totally about the way we pick ourselves up from the fall. We all will have our own outlook and view things differently from one another, but this should never deter us from walking this journey correctly, there may be many paths and roads that we may cross and as we cross these roads, there will be others that may try to get in our way, but staying true to who we are will help us stay strong, as we move forward across the paths and the cross-roads, without going backward with much pain and hurt. There will be so many unknowns along this journey, they can throw us many curveballs, which makes for a bumpy journey if we do not fix what we need to fix and keep moving forward toward the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us when he came and walked his journey here with us.
Every path may not be the same, but the journey for each of us has the same beginning as well as an ending, it is what’s in between the beginning and the ending that can and will either give us spectacular views, or have us see nothing through the clouds of our judgments.
” Climb the mountain to the summit they said, but they never said a thing of the view from the summit”
” The deeper you may look, the further you shall see”
” The hurdles may knock you down, but should never determine of how you pick yourself up from the fall”
As we walk our paths through this journey of life, there will be many views for us to see, the views within mother nature will be the most picturesque of all the views, but if you do not look deeply into what you are viewing, you will never truly understand of what you are looking at. We all will view everything differently, if you take the same picture and show it to many people, then there will be many views and interpretations of that picture, this is a fact of life and a true fact that most simply do not understand.
A view can also mean a vision that each one of us has, an ideology that is formed within our minds, now these ideological views can be sane and make sense, or they can be so far fetched that they can turn us into someone for who we truly are not. these far fetched ideological views are the division that is ripping each one of us from each other, because when we do not see what others see, then they develop this complex that then defines them, we all have our different views of everything around us, but when we try to shove those views down the throats of everybody around us, this is where all the division comes from within this society, this is the division that gets in between each one of us and enough so that we can not do our jobs, let alone try to come together in unity and work together for the good of all.
When you add in the Political Correctness that is among us, with all of our different views we all have, now there is a division among us like driving a huge wedge deep within this society and when we are too afraid to admit to this wedge, it just keeps getting deeper until we are now separate from each other, instead of being unified to work together in order to fix the solutions and become better and stronger, throughout this journey of life.
We in this society bicker and argue with each other so much, that we can not truly see what we are looking at, we all think that our views are the correct ones without even looking at the views of others, you can not even have a good solid conversation with another anymore, without going into an argument over each others views anymore, this is the wedge of division that is ripping us all apart from one another today. In today’s society with all these different views, there will be some who will try to run for political office with some getting in, then they suffocate us with their warped and twisted views of what they think is the way we all should go? I have a news flash for these so called political leaders, you work for the people who put you into that office, you do not have the power over all from that office. True there are some good people that are within the offices of our Governments, but their are also a lot of dead wood that needs to go, as they are doing nothing but try to push their views down our throats and occupying a space with their warped and twisted views.
We the people of this society have lost our way as of late and this has been growing for a while now, but with the election of a few warped and twisted views, it is very clear to see just how lost we are, we are so lost that we can not even see through the clouds of our judgments anymore, it’s kind of like hiking to a summit of a mountain with a storm brewing and not being able to see in front of us, as we take each step, the fog and the clouds of the storm are so thick, we can not even see our hands stretched out in front of us, when you keep climbing in these conditions, now you are in dangerous territory as you can take the wrong step and fall to your demise, the correct thing to do is, turn back get to safer ground and live to hike another day. This is the problem in this society of warped and twisted views, there is no one making the correct decisions anymore,
We all have our views of what we see, but unless we look deeper into the views we will never get to the reality of our view. Just look deeply into this picture, some will say we are killing the tree’s, some may say where is the beauty in this picture? The reality of this picture is, the beauty is everywhere because you are out exploring what is within Mother nature, the dead tree’s if you look deeper, could be from what we as people live through and that is, yes even the tree’s get old like us and die as we do, the tree’s also get covered with diseases but unlike us, they can not walk into a medical building for treatment, this is all part of a bigger picture and that picture is of the cycle of life, everything revolves within this cycle, you have things in the prime of the cycle do great, then there are things not as good, as an event or whatever else has effected them so, you have to look at the bigger picture in order to make your view more of reality.
” A view we all have, but to see the view as real as we can, you need to look deeply into that view”
” The division within this society is coming from each one of us, with our views and ideologies”
” When the view is cloudy and you can not see what you are looking at, you don’t make up what you think you are seeing”
” A warped and twisted ideology and taking action of that, is the most dangerous thing as a human we can do, as it only brings division among us all”
Sometimes our view of whatever we are looking at becomes obstructed, we can’t see clearly enough to pass a correct judgment, so we then make up any judgment that we think will be okay and for us, to move forward in a way we think we are better for it. This journey through life has many obstructions and at times we get frustrated which then has us not thinking through our actions, when we do this we just don’t hurt ourselves, we hurt all those around us as well, when all we simply have to do is, think and see through anything, before we actually take the action, so we all can be spared any real pain and hurt,
Most of the time we don’t want to see clearly as to spare us any pain and hurt, but this journey through life comes in what is known as a life cycle and just like any cycle, everything revolves in a circle, while yes it may be away from us, but eventually like all circles, it will come around once again. This is why we all need to see through and see clearly everything, making our future actions more informed, saving us from any pain and hurt that we really need not feel.
This journey through life may have a lot of elements to it, but when managed properly, these elements will help us walk peacefully along our paths of this journey. Sometimes these life events will come to us and try to control and disrupt our lives, this makes it very easy to not look clearly at what we are looking at, just so we can try to control any pain and hurt from effecting us so, we then hide deeply within ourselves as if we become invisible to all that is around us, this only compounds the pain and hurt further, which when the pain becomes to much, will then come to the surface like an explosion that rocks us to the point we can not handle. Anything in life when managed properly can be handled easily, just that we have to clear the weeds from our sight, to see more clearly all that is around us, then we can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.
Look deeply into what you see, let your true feelings keep you in tune to all that is around you, so when the different cycles of life come a knocking, you will be ready, willing and able to deal with them properly, as you stay in control, without them controlling you. When we see clearly of all that is around you, we than can act properly , which will help us see through our actions, before we take the action, saving us all from the pain, the hurt and the sorrow, as we then walk our paths peacefully throughout this journey of life. With the pain and hurt we become to rash with our decisions and our actions, we react without thinking of the reactions, which then has us becoming way too negative and forces us come up with any solution, instead of the proper solution. Jesus came to us and showed us just how to walk our paths of this journey, so we all than can find that true path of righteousness, as we all live in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, without any of the ugliness we see around us today.
” Look deeply into what you see, to think of the reaction before you take the action”
” We all hurt from much pain and a lot of the pain can be avoided if we only saw more clearly before we react to what we think we saw”
” The journey of life has many elements, but when managed properly the elements never become to big too handle”
” All circles are connected with links, with wear and tear links become weak and break, why we need to see clearly to replace all broken links to be better and stronger”
Sports are no way the place for any type of Politics, we all have our views, but when we force these views on those around us, simply shows nothing but all the disrespect we have for one another. Sports………… no matter of what sport you play or watch, is all about the competition and trying to be the very best that you can be. In today’s sports world and with all the advertising/promotion dollars being thrown around, now you have athletes making gigantic amounts of money and thinking that…… with all this money, they now have the right to use their platform, to shove their views down our throats. ” politics have no business in sports”, sports have no business within politics”, let these two quotes sink in, get over yourself and simply play the sport, for which you set out to play.
Political Correction has gotten way out of hand and it’s time to bury it, so we can all heal properly from it’s effects. The fact is if you don’t like someones comments, then walk away and don’t listen, or simply change the channel, to something more educational away from the crap. This has come to the point of, we are afraid to say anything, because we don’t want to offend anybody, We are a troubled Society today, time we all accept it. so we can truly change it and move forward instead of backwards.
Last night at a ball game, you had a few Demented Individuals hanging a sign with the ” Racism” word in it, then there is a sports reporter on ESPN coming out publicly and calling our President a White Supremacist”, Really!!! Are you FREAKING kidding me!!! I have really had enough of this crap and it is time for we the people to grow up, be smarter and simply learn to love one another once again. ” Love is easy cause it’s within us”, ” Hate is harder cause it is learned”, as we walk our path through this journey of life.
All while our now President Trump was running for the office, you had so much hate coming out against him and even still today, President Trump was elected by the true smart Individuals within this country, okay he may be a little harsh with his words, but you know what, this is what Political correction has done to this Society. it has made us all weak to the true meaning of the spoken word, it has made us all hide within ourselves, instead of coming out, expressing our true feelings and then moving forward better and stronger, I stand with President Trump and truly want to ” Make America Great Again”. The best way to achieve this is, bury Political correction, bury all the hate, respect one another again and finally, we need to come together in unity, to share the love that is within us, with each other once again.
Sports is no place to hold any agenda for anything political, sports is a place to play a sport for which you love, while you work together with your teammates in unity, then when everybody plays together, works hard together and simply try’s their very best ( which makes you feel good at the end of the day), your chances of winning a Championship will increase drastically, which will then have you work harder and become a true leader of your teammates, plus will teach you to become a great leader, when the sport is done and you are back walking a path through this journey of life.
Now ESPN is a sport news station on cable, when they first started it was all sports 24/7. When sports is brought to us in the right way, it is a great thing, to help us all cope with our daily struggles, it helps us become better along our journey, when we watch others trying to be at their very best, in order to win at their chosen sport. Lately ESPN has become all about drama and sharing their political views with the rest of us, you tell me where this belongs in sports, let alone…………Belongs on any sports news station. No matter if your watching the daily local news, or the daily sports news, being a real Reporter has changed drastically and there are no real Reporter’s out there anymore, as they are getting paid by a Communication company to report their agenda and if they sway from that, then their career is over as a reporter. A true Reporter…………reports the facts, not piecing together words for an agenda, if you can not report and write facts, then maybe you should look for another career? Oh wait!!! they are too lazy to do any kind of manual labor.
To bring this topic in a different direction, their is a daily talk show called the “VIEW”. This is one show that not only will I not watch, but I think this show should be taken off the air and the ones who call themselves a Host, should be banned from being in front of any camera anymore. This show and the panel they have on the stage, do nothing but spew the hate of anything and everything they can, while they shove their “Views” down our throats. I got a news flash for the ones who host the View, who really cares what you spew, as the only thing that comes out of your mouth, is the same thing that comes out of the back side of my anatomy. We all walk a path along this journey through life and when we love one another, work together in unity, we to can win a championship, like those who are on a winning sports team. plus we all can walk in Peace and be flooded with happiness throughout the journey.
” Sports and politics don’t mix and we all need to grow up/ be smarter within this society”
” Sports teaches us to be competitive and work together in unity, so we all can try to be the very best and be within a winning team”
” An agenda is something we have on our plate as we walk our paths, an agenda is not the twisting of words to spread the drama and hate”
” ESPN is a sports news station, it is not about being like the local news that spreads drama for an agenda”
” Political correction has weakened us to the point that we are hiding within ourselves, instead of truly being of who we are”
That thing we look into in the morning as we get ready to start our days, that thing called a mirror which reflects our image back at us, so we can fix ourselves up for the coming day. The mirror was made with Human hands, as the reflection in this little pond, is totally natural and comes from Mother Nature herself. This kind of reflection in the pond is a beautiful thing to see, as you can see all that surrounds the pond within the pond, like your seeing double of everything you see and get an extra view of what you are looking at.
The pond is so smooth that it reflects everything around it and makes it seem like it isn’t really a pond, look straight across and see the Birch tree, then look down in the pond and see the Birch tree again, only the one in the water is the cloned double of the one on land, this makes for a great picture except maybe some fall colors, would truly make this mirrored image really stand out.
No matter where you turn there will be a mirrored image of something for you to see, whether the mirror is handmade or not? You walk by a vehicle with chrome bumpers and see yourself walking by as well, windows in our homes when the day sky turns to night, now you can see yourself like you are peeking into the window, you turn off the TV and you can see yourself in front of the Television, There is so much around us that form this reflection of what we see, that a lot of times we tune out the reflection, just to continue to move forward along our paths of our journey through life.
This Birch tree seems like it is all alone with all the green plant life around it, maybe this is why the reflection of itself is within the water? The mirrored image of life truly brings out the beauty, of everything that we see. The mirror we look into to start our day, brings out our inner beauty so we can also look as good as the Birch tree in this picture.
They say beauty is in the eye of the be-holder? But true beauty is the reflection that the be-holder will always see. We will never see a reflection of any kind, let alone the not seeing the true beauty that is around us, without first looking deeply into what we see, When we are honest with ourselves, look deeply into what we see, we will see all the reflections of every image and the true beauty within it, everyday as we walk our paths along this journey of life.
” A reflection is an image that will have us seeing double, til we look deeply into what we see”
” mirror mirror on the wall…….is that my reflection or is this my true beauty that you bring forth for me to see”
” A mirror may be man made, but the reflection coming out of it is the natural beauty, of what ever it is reflecting”
Perception, view, belief, the ability to look at something and then talk about what you see, these are all attributes of each one of us, that walk a path along this journey of life.
We all have the ability to look at this picture, we all just as easily can also see differently of what we are looking at with those four attributes. Some may see this building and say this needs to be torn down, as it looks ugly? Some may see the clump of grass in the middle of the water and look at it as just grass, without truly believing why is it there? Through these four attributes, we then label everything around us, cause we don’t truly understand what we see, when we look deeply at what is around us.
The labeling we all do to everything around us, even to us ourselves and of each other, is just that ” a label”. We label everything only because we are afraid to truly understand the truth, as we become lost within the clouds of judgment. When we label each other without truly getting to know each other, we all lose as we walk our journey’s, because that other person we have labeled, may have been a victim of circumstance, may be hurting deeply inside and they too are afraid to look deeply into what they see? When we label everything we are not truly getting to know what is around us, which leads to nothing but more fear of each other.
When we label things like our food we place in the refrigerator, this is good cause we know the date of the product, to keep us from getting sick, but when we label each other as we walk our journey’s, we all become sickened with great fear of each other, which does nothing but keep us all from truly knowing each other and all the good each of us can bring into Society, as we all walk our paths of our journey through life.
Right now throughout our Society we are surrounded by way too much hate and evil, the good in all of us is hiding deep within each of us, because we are too afraid to show it, as this may look as being weak instead of truly being strong, by actually seeing what is around us. No matter how small or big something is we are seeing, we always need to look deeply into what we see, this will help us all from labeling everything around us and actually seeing what we are looking at.
We all walk our paths through this journey of life, some may take or follow a path of another, while the rest may carve their own path? There is no wrong path, the only wrong thing is, the way we carve our way through it, or the way we become a victim of circumstance, like any victim of anything, we now become clouded within our judgements, which forces us to never truly look deeply into what we see, which then forces us to put these labels on everything, even on each other.
Labeling has become part of the norm within this Society, for which if we look deeply into what we see, we shall see the why’s of why we all are hurting, we will see just how much pain that is in front of us and we shall also see through the clouds of our judgements, which will help us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths of our journey through life peacefully moving forward.
” a label is good if your labeling something like food that expires in short time, but when we label each other or ourselves, then great pain will follow us everywhere we go”
” The clouds of our judgements will always keep us from truly seeing what we are looking at”
” through the hate and the evil we will never see any good that is around us, which keeps us from looking deeply into what we see”
With all the technology we have today, with all the Social Media sites within our reach and view, you would think we are better off than of Societies of the past? The true answer is, we are worse than all other Societies of the past, simply because we lack true communication and trust.
When you look at the history of Mankind right from the beginning, they did not have all this technology, nor did they even know what social media is? There communication was with each other, not being afraid to do something and making a mistake at first, then correcting that mistake through trial and error, as Mankind evolved through time and became more sophisticated, is when the real troubles began.
We stopped with truely communicating with each other, cause we thought we ourselves were better then the other, when your view didn’t match mine, well then I won’t associate with you which than stopped true communication in it’s tracks.
When you don’t have true communication , now you have a Society of Individuals that are living in their own little fantasy world.
With all the crap we have right here in the United States and throughout the World, only proves that our true communication towards each other is gone, we need to look deep within ourselves, fix all our negitives, so we than can take it into Society, so Society can fix itself of all it’s troubles.
God’s vision of a peaceful Society, was not for us to stop truely communicating with each other, was not about guys like Reggie Jackson and Al Sharpton, to say they are God willing, then play the race card, to get their point across, the race card doesn’t even exsist in God’s peaceful Society, as all of us as Humans are equal, no matter of your color of skin, this is just fuel to the fire by two Individuals trying to play God. The race card is just an excuse to try to put yourself above all others.
There is communication, then there is true communication, with true communication we all work together to fix ourselves, so our Society will fix itself and we all can walk our paths along our Journey of life in peace, while we are better and stronger moving forward.
With all the crap going on in Ferguson, MO. Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri state police has a great message and that is of true communication of each other, plus he himself walked through the communities down their as a person and not an officer of the law, to try to instill the trust and confidence of each other once again, we should all listen to him throughout the World and not people out for their own agandas, that do nothing but try to put themselves above everybody else.
We all walk a path, not every path is perfect, we may be in a different part of the World, we may not all look the same, but in the end and with true communication and all of us as Humans working together on our paths, all our Journey’s of life will be in peace, which will help us all be stronger and better moving forward.
” Without true communication, now you have a Society of Individuals, that lack trust of each other and live within their own little fantasy World”
” No matter the color of your skin, where you are from, we all are God’s children, we are all Humans that walk a path along a Journey of life”
