The Haircut

 

The Haircut

A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him, “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut and we’ll talk about it.”

After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss use of the car. They again went to the father’s study where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you’ve studied your Bible diligently, but you didn’t get your hair cut!”

The young man waited a moment and replied, “You know Dad, I’ve been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair….”

To which his father replied, “Yes, and they walked everywhere they went!”

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

We Create Our Own Hell On Earth

 

Written by Gary Wonning

In many books and teachings, you are told that Earth is the most hellish planet in the universe, esoteric teachings teach us that many other planets have a much more  severe climate for learning than on planet earth. 

All religions, beliefs and cultures have their own definition of heaven and hell.  

For most, how one acts in this incarnation determines whether we go to heaven or hell when we leave this earthly existence. 

Either existence only becomes a reality after we pass on. 

While this is true to some extent and most believe some heavenly being determines which direction we go. It is entirely our  decision  how we spend eternity. 

We must be reminded, we all have free will and because of this, we all determine our life and destiny.  It is our decision, the creator grants us what we desire based on what we need to experience and our determination to advance our soul towards the next step in it’s growth. 

Our actions and thoughts in this moment of time creates our future, not only in a future life, but in this life also.  We create our own heaven and hell, or what our perspective of what those two different realities would be. 

Many times our definition of heaven would be hell for someone else, and our definition of hell would be heaven for many others. That is for the individual soul to determine based entirely on the lessons needed to be learned in this earthly existence.

One example would be the mate and people we choose to spend our lives with,  one persons dream mate would be a nightmare for someone else. 

A dream occupation for one, would be something another wouldn’t do if their life depended on it. It’s a matter of personal choice, depending on our life mission. 

Our challenges are what we make them, once we accept that, the challenges fade away and we are able to lead a happier productive life.

Two Old Friends

Two old friends met one day after many years. One attended college, and now was very successful. The other had not attended college and never had much ambition.

The successful one said, “How has everything been going with you?”

“Well, one day I opened the Bible at random, and dropped my finger on a word and it was oil. So, I invested in oil, and boy, did the oil wells gush. Then another day I dropped my finger on another word and it was gold. So, I invested in gold and those mines really produced. Now, I’m as rich as Rockefeller.”

The successful friend was so impressed that he rushed to his hotel, grabbed a Gideon Bible, flipped it open, and dropped his finger on a page. He opened his eyes and his finger rested on the words, “Chapter Eleven.”

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Communicating With Friends Through Our Dreams

 

Many times we visualize  friends in our dreams.

I’ve come to find this often occurs when we are about to make an important decision, either consciously or subconsciously.

Our Super Conscious is aware of events coming our way often before we become aware of them on a conscious level and it warns us in advance if we are able to interpret the message.

I have come to discover I often dream of friends, especially female friends when some important decision needs to be made. I feel that most often female friends come into play because I need the female energies to balance my energies to level the field  and to make a rational well balanced decision.

Often times, I also communicate with friends telepathically when it is impossible to reach them on a conscious level, for whatever the reason may be, whether they are physically too far away or other factors come into play.

One particular circumstance came into play just a couple of nights ago.

I met this particular friend early in life and we have remained friends ever since. I have felt extremely close to her even though we never dated or had any kind of close physical relationship, no one ever replaced the feelings I have had for her over the years. She is extremely religious and in spite of that , we have never  talked of our beliefs.

Recently I began to wonder how she would feel about my changing spiritual values and if she would on some level agree with them. Her thoughts and opinions have always been important to me. 

Two nights ago, my whole sleep time, it seems was devoted to seeing her.  In the most vivid dream, we were swimming, along with several other people, in a pool of water waist deep, and we were very content and happy.

To me this symbolizes that we agree  on many things spiritually and it seems as though we are both moving in the same direction.

The Aborigine Dream Time in Modern Day Life

.photo of ayres rock, "uluru" in central Australia

The life of the Australian Aborigine

The Australian Aborigines believe in their Dream Time  that we dream about something before we actually do it, In other words, if we are planning on traveling to a distant city, we actually dream about it and  in our subconscious mine know what the final result will be before the actual journey begins. 

If we were as in tune to nature as they are, we would then be able to comprehend the future, and if something was to occur we didn’t want to participate in, we could change it before it happened. 

Many times, we believe  modern day people no longer or never had those abilities. We believe those talents are confined to people in the past, or prophets in the bible. 

That simply isn’t true. We all have those abilities, we just need to cultivate them. When a talent we have isn’t practiced or thought of it withers and dies just like a muscle in our body withers and dies if we don’t use it.  

My dad always talked about the time he applied for a job, he had never been to the building or workplace where the job was , but as he entered the building, he walked over to the workstation without any prompting from anyone. 

The human resources director was astonished that dad knew where to go, and questioned him as to whether he had been in the building prior to this particular time. 

Dad replied that he had never been there before, I don’t think either one ever realized what had just happened. 

Dad had a premonition, or dreaming and only followed his instincts after “dreaming” before the event.

We all have those abilities, we have just been conditioned to believe that we don’t, either through religion or a belief that we are not worthy and need someone else to dictate to us what we believe. 

For the human race to evolve into the next state of consciousness, we must all once again learn to develop our intuitive skills. We have come to a point in history here we can no longer trust anyone to tell us the truth without their bias, it is imperative we relearn these skills.
