Small Creeks and Waterfalls

Art Prints

Some of the most peaceful and relaxing places on the planet are small creeks and waterfalls. Most are  not crowded so you can literally have the place for yourself. They are secluded and out of the way, as a result, many times wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat without them seeing you.

This small waterfall is located on a creek named Harvey’s Branch near the tiny village of Oldenburg in southeastern Indiana. Harvey’s Branch, obviously named after someone named Harvey, who lives nearby, follows Harveys Branch Road beginning on the northern edge of Oldenburg and ends in Peppertown, a few miles north. It is a narrow gravel road, but very picturesque, especially in the autumn when the leaves display their fall colors.

The Flume, located in New Hampshire, is a beautiful place to enjoy a few moments while taking a break while touring the lovely scenery of New England.

The Flume was discovered in 1808 by 93-year-old  “Aunt” Jess Guernsey when she accidently came upon it while fishing. She had trouble convincing her family of the marvelous discovery, but eventually persuaded others to come and see for themselves. At that time, a huge egg-shaped boulder hung suspended between the walls. The rock was 10 feet (3m) high and 12 feet (3.6m) long. A heavy rainstorm in June of 1883 started a landslide that swept the boulder from its place. It has never been found. The same storm deepened the gorge and formed Avalanche Falls.

 

Ruby Falls, located near Chattanooga Tennesee is equally inviting. It is located near many historical Civil War sites in the southern Tennessee, northern Georgia area.

The Path to Your Twin Flame

Photography Prints

Because of the shift in consciousness the planet is experiencing, many are seeking out their twin flame.

As a consequence, many are wondering if they have met their twin or if they ever will in this lifetime.

As we travel from lifetime to lifetime, we encounter many different life experiences. As a result, anyone  who has done any research on their own experiences will tell you.  We, each and every one of us incarnates in all the different races and genders, as well as various occupations and varied paths.

Our soul needs to experience and learn from the “all” that is.

When doing research it is not uncommon to find a theme in the live’s you encounter. This will give you a general idea of who you are, or what kind of life you should be leading at this particular point in time. By no means will this one theme surface in all your past lives.

Of course not, and to research every life you have lived would be  time-consuming, and confusing to even consider, and would be a lifelong adventure.

There isn’t any need to go to those extremes, by only researching a few, one can normally discover everything you need to know to  perform you mission in this lifetime.

As mentioned, anyone who has researched several past lives will discover they have lived many varied lives, most have been negro, white, Indian, oriental, and various combinations of all of the above. All have been male, female, and also gay or lesbian.

You will probably discover you had at one time several wives or husbands, and times when you never married or had any relationships. You were probably priests, nuns, pastors, political figures, farmers, merchants, and slaves. The  list goes on and on.

Once you begin to realize this, it is extremely hard to discriminate against anyone.

Many times, discrimination is also a trait we all need to experience in order to understand it, and being discriminated against is something we each need to endure to understand the total human experience.

The path to meeting your twin flame can be long and venturesome. It includes many twists and turns and many times true twin flames seldom meet and if they do, they don’t recognize the true nature of their relationship.

At the beginning of creation, souls were created, and soon thereafter they split into two separate souls, male and female. That doesn’t mean that the male partner would only experience male lifetimes and the female would only experience female existences. It just means each individual part of the soul was of that part of the total soul.

This is what was alluded to in Genesis, the first book of the Christian and Jewish holy bible. The book of Genesis states that God created Adam and that Adam was alone. God didn’t want Adam to be alone so he created Eve from a rib.

To me this symbolizes that Eve was once a part of Adam and thus their soul’s split and became two. If this were not so, why didn’t God create Eve from the earth like he did Adam?

To have done so would have made them two different souls, but not a helpmate like God intended. He created Eve from a rib, which is located near the Solar Plexus or the seat of the soul. It doesn’t take much imagination to realize the symbolism involved.

Will you ever find your twin flame? You were never separated.

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.

Be Who You Really Are

Art Prints

It’s much easier to not know things sometimes.

Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody.

I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me.

I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people.

You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love.

And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. You just can’t. You have to do things.

I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is.

Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there.

And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

Predicting His Son's Profession

Predicting His Son’s Profession

A Tennessee country preacher had a teenage son, and as he neared the end of high school it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young men, the boy didn’t really know what he wanted to do, and he didn’t seem too concerned about it.

One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy’s room and placed on his study desk three items: a Bible, a silver dollar, and a bottle of whiskey.

“I’ll just hide behind the door,” the old preacher said to himself, “and when he comes home from school this afternoon, I’ll see which object he picks up. If it’s the Bible, he’s going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be! If he picks up the dollar, he’s going to be a businessman, and that would be OK too. But if he picks up the bottle, he’s going to be a no-good drunkard and, Lord, what a shame that would be.”

The older man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son’s footsteps as he entered the house and headed for his room. He tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the three items on the desk. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them.

Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. His father, watching quietly, started to silently thank the Lord. But then his son picked up the silver dollar and dropped it into his pocket, and twisted the top off the bottle and took a big drink!

“Lord have mercy,” the old man whispered, “he’s gonna be a Congressman!”

Autumn in Indiana

Art Prints

The most beautiful time of the year to spend in the midwest, in particular, Indiana is in the autumn. The summer heat and rains have passed, the first frost has come and gone, the leaves have turned a golden color and winter has not yet set in.

Autumn is  a time of apple cider and pumpkins. Fall festivals are plentiful where one can enjoy the crisp, clear days with beautiful blue cloudless skies and a harvest moon.

ind58

 

Hayrides and gathering pumpkins are a favorite pastime. The pumpkins make excellent pie and jack-0-lanterns for Halloween.

The fall foliage is at it’s best in mid-October, providing a variety of colors that are pleasing to the eye. It’s time to enjoy that last wiener roast around a  camp fire complete with  smores and hot chocolate.

Each generation from the beginning of our country has contributed to what our country has become. By the same token, no one is perfect. Consequently, each generation has done and will continue to perform acts that it would have been better if some other course of action was taken.
The baby boomers have contributed much and have been blamed for the decline of America. What is the true story?

 

An Out of Body Experience

Sell Art Online

Occasionally, Willard, The Bashful Country Boy, as he likes to call himself, drops by and relays an interesting tidbit about his own spiritual journey. I always find his stories interesting.

Written by; The Bashful Country Boy

Through the years, I have discovered that we all perceive reality differently. Many times I have seen, heard, or felt something and a companion sitting next to me experienced nothing or something completely different.

On one particular instance, I happened to be talking to some coworkers before starting work. As I talked, I walked over to a coworker and began talking to her. As we talked, I suddenly felt myself entering her body. I could feel her heart beating, I felt blood flowing through her veins, and I was observing life looking from her eyes. Unfortunately, the phenomenon  only lasted a few seconds.

As soon as I realized what was happening, the shock of it all caused me to reenter my own body.

After leaving her body and again entering mine, I looked at her and could sense she seemed to experience nothing. At the time it was rather unsettling, I wanted to share it with someone but felt I couldn’t. As time went by it was never discussed with her and now I haven’t seen her in years. So I must deal with it on my own.

Perhaps someday it will be different, I would like to know more.

Through it all, I learned that each and every one of us experiences reality in our own distinct way. Two people never see things exactly the same.That doesn’t make either one of them wrong, it just gives each one a different perspective and enables each to see things as they must so they may learn whatever lessons they need to learn.

Should Sea World be Closed?

Sell Art Online

Written by; Gary Wonning

The politically correct crowd has targeted another business for extinction. 

This is just one of the many problems we face as I bring out in my book,”The Wisdom of our Ancestors.

Sea World has come under fire for the way it treats their whales and dolphins. The claim has been made the animals are treated unfairly and to keep them in captivity is cruel and unusual punishment. 

To the contrary, no proof of mistreatment has been substantiated. From all indications, the animals are treated humanely,  well fed and protected from their natural predators. They are loved by not only their caretakers but by the general public as well.

Thousands of children come every year to enjoy their antics and to learn more about the world around them, something that is sorely needed in today’s society.  

There has been no proof presented the animals suffer because of their captive environment. In fact the animals would benefit from the attention and care they get from their human counterparts. They receive none of that in the wilds of the deep blue sea where they constantly have to be on guard so they don’t get eaten. 

Many say it is cruel to keep them penned up so they are unable to roam the seas freely, I’m not so sure. 

The same goes for the animals in zoos and the circus. Most of the animals are well maintained and fed properly. The owners have too much money invested in them to do otherwise. There are probably a few instances where this isn’t true. Those cases should be handled on an individual basis, we need to stop punishing everyone for the actions of a few. 

I would ask these same people if they have a pet such as a dog, or cat. 

I would remind them that dogs and cats at one time roamed the outdoors freely and were not domesticated. 

How about goldfish, or parakeets? They are also held in a captive environment. 

Maybe we should turn these animal loose also to roam freely and be subject to the whims of their predators.

I see no difference in domesticating whales and dolphins than I do in domesticating dogs or cats.

In both cases, people and the animals themselves benefit. Humans get much joy from having domesticated animals near them, they have much therapeutic value.  The animals themselves benefit from being cared for, all their nutritional needs are met, they no longer have to defend themselves from other animals that would want to turn them into dinner, and their health needs are also well taken care of. 

It’s time we stand up to these organizations that spread false information about well-meaning companies that provide an enjoyable, educational entertainment venue to us.   

Keeping whales and dolphins in captivity is no different than having a pet dog or cat. 

To think differently is ridiculous and narrow-minded. 

It has been reported that the attendance at the Sea World parks is down by seventy-five percent, to lose Sea World and other such parks would be an injustice not only to the parks, but humanity as well. Let’s stop the madness.
