Happy Veteran’s Day

The Price Of Freedom

We often take holidays for granted, not actually appreciating the meaning behind their existence. We become selfish and only care that we have a day off from work. But what about the actual representation of the holiday? As for veteran’s day, this is a time to pay respect to the fallen ones who stood up for our country, and for those who stand up for our country every day!

It’s very easy to forget how difficult it is to give up your life for the military. It takes courage, strength and a big heart! It’s not about the lack of education or resources that drives one to enlist in the military. Even if these factors play a role in some, the biggest factor by far is patriotism!

Not all of us have the courage, right intent or interest to join the military. And that is totally fine! But we must at least remember those who have, and their role in protecting us overseas. We are fighting against an ideology based on brainwashing and evilness; an entity who wants to destroy the western world.

And our soldiers are out there in dangerous terrain, giving up their lives for us! The least that we can do is to pray for them and their families, and show them the recognition and respect in which they deserve. These men and women undergo intense physical and mental training, but nothing compares to their big hearts!

How about the military personnel protecting our airports against sociopaths and terrorists? It’s because of them that we feel comfortable and safe when we are standing in line at the terminal. Let us not distance ourselves from the military and the police. We must remember that they are doing their job and are here to help us.

The price of freedom should not be forgotten. The DSM Ready Movement is about uniting everyone around the world who has a heart and soul, and wants to improve the way of the world!

The Worst Things In Life Aren’t Free

Free Is For Freedom

We all want nice things in life: a fast new car, a wicked shining glamorous home, expensive clothing, private jet rides, etc. There is nothing wrong with longing for materialism as long as it doesn’t chip away at your soul. The old saying “the best things in life are free” is absolutely true.

Happiness, pureness, thankfulness, pets, friendships, family, love, God . . . these are the things in life that cost nothing but your presence. But we often take these things for granted and find ourselves crying for more. When we distract ourselves with materialism, we start to ignore the important things in life.

When we start to ignore the important things in life, that is when God takes them away from us; not as punishment, but as a wakeup call to help set us back on the right path. Life is full of many paths: some distrustful and painful, while others beautiful and loving. When we gear off the right path, that is when God steps in to align us back on the right one.

Therefore, do not ignore the important things in life by replacing them with materialistic objectives. If you want materialism, then go for it, but remember that it comes far after God, family and love. And if you find yourself changing as a person because of materialism, then it might be time to take a long hard look at yourself.

It’s very easy to fall in the trap of money and lust; the roots of all evil. That’s why the worst things in life aren’t free: they usually cost you your soul. What does it benefit you to gain everything in the world at the expense of your soul? You cannot take materialism with you into God’s kingdom.

But you can take your soul! So keep it and focus on the important things in life.
