The Journey of Life

The Journey
I love the journey. There is so much to see along the path, from birth till death.
Things such as the swaying of a delicate flower that blooms just the very day you are passing its location, stories of the eons gone by that the mountains are so eager to tell - if only someone would pause long
enough to listen to them, the silent glide of a hawk catching the rising air looking for its next meal. These are but a fraction missed by so many as they race with tunnel vision and a deceived sense of urgency to their destination at speeds beyond human. Theirs is a lonely, devoid road consisting only of points, points that are to be arrived at with minimal waste of time so that they can set off to the next point, only to repeat the process over and over.
Their reward is the fleeting satisfaction of arriving in record time, and to nurse their ulcer just long enough to launch them to the next point.
One of the big lies meant to keep us in bondage is that the journey, the time spent between points of departure and arrival, is just a thing to be tolerated, to be eventually eliminated by the quantum molecular transporter. But the truth is the journey is where life is, is where life happens.
It is where you find who you really are, where you are and how to live. The destination is not the prize but the place where you can rest and get ready for the next journey, the next fantastic experience.

I have seen the consequenses

I am calling on all adults to stop taking advantage of our precious children.
Children look to us for protection, guidance, safety and a place where they are loved.
I know that hurting people hurt people, so if you were abused as a child and have thoughts of doing the same to another child please, take a stand and do what is right by stopping the cycle of abuse, you will feel good that you have risen above all those before you and will allow that child a life free of the torment, nightmares and emotional damage.
You can be the one strong enough to say NO! I will not pass on that legacy of abuse and control. You can begin a new line of healing and life.
Everything we do to a child has lifelong consequences for them. Those actions done to them affect every thought, action and choice they have and do for the rest of their lives.
Lets give them lifelong experiences that build them up, give them strength and self esteem.
A child should be able to be a child, without fear of harm from those whom they look to for safety and love.
