Discussion About the Field of Landmines
Discussion About the Field of Landmines
Landmines you ask? Yes landmines. Landmines are buried under the ground, intentionally hidden from view, so that some unexpecting person steps on it and gets limbs blown off. Now that we have clarified my use of landmines, imagine if you were lost in the woods and finally found the path out, but to get through the path to get home you had to walk through a field of landmines. I imagine that I would seek whatever alternative route I could find, including swinging like a monkey from tree to tree if necessary. But what if the ONLY way was through the landmine field? Would you walk through it? Would you have the courage? Or would you sit by the side of the field crying for what is lost because you wouldn’t, couldn’t, find the courage to walk through? Live or die? Both options have both choices. Not walking through that landmine field, you will eventually wither away and die unless you make camp and live forever more in isolation. Walking through the landmine requires courage, determination, and careful observation, but you have a 50/50 chance to make it through alive. Scary. Really scary decision. I imagine I would take the risk just to see my family and friends. I would rather die than fall victim to my fears and live a life of self-imposed exile. Yes. I would rather die trying.
The reason I am talking about this is because the field of landmines can be associated with our field of fears. So many times, when people have an opportunity to truly excel in their passions, they fall victim to the fear of the field of landmines. Oh yes, many times it is absolutely possible and suggested to take an alternative route when available. But the issue here is that in order to be and become everything you want and hope to be, there is no other way around that field of fear. Not even the monkeys can get through without walking that ground.
But here is the good news. Those landmines, those fears, they are not real. If you are following your intention and hanging every last decision on what benefits all while seeking to be the best you can be, you will not step on those landmines. You are afraid you will, because you have before. But before happened before you knew the value of the key. I talk all day long about “Together, ALL Things Are Possible.” This applies to all of us, working together as one. But this also applies to something else….
My vision has always been based on the greater good of all. That has been the basis of my dream for as long as I can remember. But in my personal experience and the personal experiences of a vast number of successful people, I can tell you that this right here is the biggest hang-up of all. And the crux of the problem is that we exclude God in our “Together, ALL Things Are Possible” thinking. Without Him, we can only go so far. It is His path of “Together, ALL Things Are Possible,” which turns into miracles for everyone. Without His guidance and direction to see the landmines placed under the soil, we would step on them.
Our fears are nothing more than challenges of faith that are placed in our path, to determine just how much God can use you to help the others. He does nothing for only one. So, when you ask God for help in the times of crisis, much like sitting on the side of the field of landmines, it is only by your unwavering faith in the necessary steps that He places in front of you to conquer, that you ever make it out to the other side. Your good will to the greater good of all is The Key to overcome the challenge. It is the true essence of “Together, ALL Things Are Possible,” and you can’t exclude the Creator of such a miraculous happening. The wavering of faith while walking across the field is what causes us to step on the landmines. When we do that, we didn’t pass the test and we must take it again. It may not look exactly like last time, or maybe it does, but you can be guaranteed that you will continue to take that test over and over and over again until such time you get the courage to have faith that you will make it to the other side, by working with superior focus on “Together, ALL Things Are Possible.”
That’s where we bring in patriotism, myself, and the many others at Miracle USA. We have walked through those fields. I personally have walked half way about 100 different times because I kept trying to take the power back and started thinking that I could identify those landmines under the ground myself. Boy, was I wrong. And the Patriots of America had to do the same. Once I finally equated the experiences to a college course and realized all I had to do is pass the course to stop the endless half-walks through the field, did I make it out to the other side. And you sure do see things differently when you get there. All that worry, distress, aggravation, depression, and whatever other negative feeling or thought you may have is ABSOLUTELY POINTLESS. Yup, you find that it is so easy, that suddenly you realized all that you went through was pointless.
On the other side of the field of landmines, or fears, is a place where the word PEACE has a different meaning. Once you stop banging your head against the wall trying to do everything yourself and thinking that you are limited to lack of resources or courage, and open your heart and mind to “Together, ALL Things Are Possible,” miraculous things begin happening. First of all, you have a peace in your heart and mind knowing that you achieved the best possible outcome (which by the way is usually way over the top from what your limited thinking allowed you to imagine) BECAUSE you allowed God to be one that you work together with along with all the others. The peace derived from that is wonderful, and one could easily be happy and content with that alone.
But there comes another type of unexpected peace, that is just as wonderful as the first.
That peace, the unexpected one, is the one you get from realizing that you had nothing to fear to begin with. We all walk around with lack-minded thinking. I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough time. I don’t have enough energy. I don’t have this and I don’t have that, yada, yada, yada. We all do it. We are so inundated all the time with negativity from everywhere….TV, Computer, Cells….that we take all those experiences of others as our own, most times without even realizing it. Once that’s done, then we take on the fears from all that negativity. Whew. Blows me away to even watch the news these days. From the other side, all that stuff is like poison. Very rare do we hear the good stories, about the “good guys,” the ones who made it through the field. And that is because we are addicted to all the drama being forced down our throats at every turn. It literally bleeds out the pores of the American people and people all over the planet.
My friends, we need to stop the bleeding. You may not realize it, but slowly and surely, we are bleeding out. Who wouldn’t take the 50/50 chance that purely depends on our own commitment to having faith that God will lead you through? So back to the analogy. Do you sit on the side of the field, homeless and hungry or do you take that chance?
This is how my dream and the dreams of the people at Miracle USA intertwine with yours. We did it. We made it. We are true American Patriots who have fought through the battles, took all the wrong roads, tried every short-cut possible, and took many, many repeat college courses…..until we got it right. Just like our ancestors. We get up every morning with PEACE, ready and willing to do whatever it takes to stay on the other side of the field of fears. We are here to help give you the courage and direction. We have encapsulated every possible resource we could gather and add more and more as each person joins us.
Here's the thing about “Together, ALL Things Are Possible”…….
First and most importantly, you must realize God wants the best for all and will only take you down roads which provide that. He may not show you the full blueprint of where each mine is located, he may only show you the next, then the next, as you encounter them. That’s where the faith comes in. You can’t see, but you are safe.
Second and just as important, you must identify both your strengths and your weaknesses. Yes, your weaknesses. If you don’t acknowledge that they are there and work together with others who with their strengths compensate for your weaknesses, then you are always going to be looking at the 50/50 chance and fear could very well hold you back whether you ever admit that to yourself or not. By working with others, your chances for survival increase. I like increasing my odds for success and survival. And I don’t mind sharing that success because without someone else’s strength, my own weaknesses would have held me back from arriving on the other side whole. Everyone wins. And that’s where the miracles are apparent. You have many along the way, but the challenges keep you from seeing them until you get to the other side. But once you get there, WOW. Just WOW.
The last thing on this topic is this….you must be willing to do it on your own free will. Nobody can successfully force you to go through that field unless you are ready. It’s your choice. It’s your life. You are the only one who can make the decision and take action. But know this….we know it’s hard looking at things from that side of the field. Our hands are out to help you in whatever way we can. We got here by working together, and we want you to come with us. We are committed to helping others cross the field. We are incomplete without you. We need your strengths to help overcome the weaknesses. We hope to hear from you.
God Bless America.
