Miami Florida Sunrise


Written by: GAry Wonning

Over the years , one of the most valuable lessons I have learned is to never pack my camera away  where I can’t get to it. You never know when they once in a lifetime photo opportunity will arise.

Miami Sunrise
As our ship docked in Miami after returning from a seven day fun filled cruise to the Caribbean, we were preparing to leave our cabin and have breakfast one last time in the dining room before departing the ship and driving home.

I decided to take one last look from our balcony, and boy, am I glad I did! The sun was just rising over the horizon to reveal a beautiful tropical sunrise over Miami Beach.  Breakfast would have to wait. I grabbed my trusty Nikon from it’s resting place in my camera bag and captured several shots before the sun rose completely above the horizon.

A lesson learned, always keep your camera handy . People say it is impossible to get good travel photos while on a cruise. This simply isn’t true. Just stay alert, plenty of opportunities will present themselves and you will return home with lots of memories and souvenirs.

Reality is an Illusion

Written by : The Bashful Country Boy

Many of the ancients teach that reality is only a dream and we are only
seeing and experiencing what we want to think as reality. In fact the
Australian Aborigines believe life is only a dreaming, life is their
dream time.

Their belief is that before one can actually experience doing something, it
must be dreamed, not always in a sleep dream,. but as a vision if you
would. They believe to journey to Sydney, it must be dreamed first. In a
sense this means the thought of going makes the action materialize.
Hence thoughts create reality, who can argue with that?

Many times two people sitting next to each other will see a different
reality. Two people sitting together at a sporting event who are
cheering for opposite teams will no doubt see things quite differently.
People with different religious views definitely tend see the same event
quite differently.

People according to their beliefs will no doubt view tragedy in various ways
and as a result will react according to how they view it either as  a
positive event offering a chance to grow and learn,  or as a negative
event whereby they suffer many consequences of believing quite the
opposite.

Most people think of humans as a body that has a soul, but quite the
opposite is true, we are actually souls that are occupying a body. When
looking at life from this perspective, we can realize the aborigines are
correct in their thinking. As a soul occupying a body, instead of a
body that has a soul, we begin to realize we are just observers in this
human existence, we are actors on the stage of life, and what we “dream”
we believe and by thus dreaming it , we create it.

We are creating our reality every minute of every day, day after day. So
by creating our own reality on a continuous basis , everything we
perceive and think creates the next minute of our lives, and how we
perceive each moment will make our life different than the person
sitting next to us.

As our perception  and understanding of past events change, so it changes
our reality and perception of  life. We are directing our life and
future. As we look down upon our life we see the changes as they come
about and when we observe something we would like to alter , it is
relatively easy to do. It may not happen overnight, but it will happen.

Change your thoughts, change your life.

The Absurdity of Raising Taxes

It seems as though whenever the liberals get into power in government,
they seem to think the solution to everything is to raise taxes. The
first battle cry is that they are only going to raise the taxes of the
evil rich, however anyone who has been around for a while soon realizes
this just isn’t true. A tax raise is a tax raise, it affects everyone
and most often it affects the poor more than the wealthy.

Raising the taxes on the wealthy not only raises the cost of everything we
purchase and use, but it also places less capital in the economy,
resulting in less jobs being created and less capital for investment,
thereby stifling our growth. I assume they didn’t take the same
economics class I took as a freshman in high school.

Warren Buffet and others seem to think they don’t pay enough taxes, well,
there is no law saying they can’t write a check to the IRS and rectify
that problem and ease their conscience. In the mean time while Buffet is
making those absurd statements, it has been discovered his companies
have been shortchanging the IRS. Hypocrisy at it’s finest!

Many people have the misguided notion that by paying more taxes, they are
actually helping poor people. I’m not sure where they got this
convoluted idea.  Most of the money our government supposedly gives to
the poor, not only in this country but around the world as well, never
reaches it’s intended destination. Most of it winds up in the hands of
dishonest government bureaucrats .

At last count we still have two billion dollars earmarked for Haiti that
no one can find. Private charities and individuals always do a  better
job of donating in times of need than the government, because there is
less red tape and corruption.

Paying taxes has nothing to do with Charity. Charity comes from the heart, not
a faceless government official. When one is forced to give something,
it is not charity, it is just a tax that in reality means nothing to the
giver or receiver. As a consequence the receiver is often bitter
because it wasn’t more.


A personal contribution is just that, personal, it creates a bond
between giver and receiver that most often creates an atmosphere of gratefulness in the receiver and a feeling in the contributors heart
that he has done something truly worth while.

People need to learn to make their own way, asking for help only when needed,
government welfare only creates an atmosphere of need on the part of the
recipient, making them a slave to the government, an excellent way for
the politicians to garner votes. We have as a nation contributed over a
trillion dollars since the 60s to the poor , not only in this country,
but around the world, and they are still poor.

There has to be a better way.

Sedona Arizona: Boynton Canyon

As mysterious as it is beautiful, Boynton Canyon is a “must” see on your next visit to ancient Sedona.

Boynton Canyon Sedona Arizona

Sell Art Online

Located just a few short miles northwest of Sedona , this sacred land is home to many legends. Native American Indians have lived in this land for thousands of years, thus the land is sacred to them.

Boynton Canyon is one of the four major vortexes in the Sedona area, which lends it to many unusual events. Many report much UFO activity in this area as well as other strange phenomenon.

One of the most beautiful resorts to be found any where is located in this canyon. Visited by guests from all walks of life, Enchantment Resort , (The former Gardner Ranch), is said to have been built on sacred Indian burial grounds.Many believe this has lead to the continuous and ongoing financial problems the resort has endured.

The early morning and late afternoon sun makes this an ideal dining experience.

Hiking in the area, and enjoying the exteme beauty and magnificance it isn’t hard to imagine that at one time this whole area was underwater.  Venturing up Sycamore Canyon Trail, about a mile behind the Enchantment Resort an area of white quartz beach sand with sea shells included can be seen , in an area that today is about 4,500 feet above sea level. How did that get there?

Plan to spend some time, you might even get to see a UFO.

Enlightenment
At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source. I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time. Hence my book is short on references, but long on experience, I hope you understand.

The Mermaid


The Mermaid
One day three men are out having a relaxing
day fishing, when suddenly

they catch a mermaid. After hauling the mermaid up in a net, she
promises that if the men set her free, in return she will grant
each of them a wish.



The first man doesn’t believe it so he says, “Alright, if you can
really
grant wishes, then double my IQ.”

The mermaid says, “Done” and suddenly, the first man starts to

flawlessly recite Shakespeare and analyze it with extreme
insight.

The second man is so amazed, he looks at the mermaid and says,
“Triple

my IQ.”

The mermaid says, “Done” and the second man starts to recite
solutions

to all of the mathematical problems that have been stumping all of the
scientists in various fields from physics to chemistry,
etc.

The third man is so enthralled with the changes in his friends, he

says to the mermaid: “Quintuple my IQ.”

The mermaid looks at him and says, “You know, I normally don’t try
to

change people’s minds when they make a wish, but I really wish you’d
reconsider.”

The man responds, “Nope, I want you to increase my IQ times five,
and

if you don’t do it, I won’t set you free.”

“Please,” said the mermaid “You don’t know what you’re
asking…it’ll

change your entire view on the universe. Won’t you ask for something
else… a million dollars, anything?”

But no matter what the mermaid said, the third man insisted on
having

his IQ increased by five times it’s usual power.

So the mermaid finally relented and said, “Done.”


The third man became a woman.
