Our country had an unusual beginning. Most think it was all about politics and a little tea party in Boston Harbor. There was a lot more to it than a few colonist wanting to avoid paying taxes on a cup of tea.
In the beginning, most settlers came here to escape religious persecution. In many countries in Europe, people had to worship as the political leaders demanded, religious freedom was practically unheard of.
As a result, the early settlers came here to find God in their own way without any interference or direction from government. From the humblest of beginnings, many of our present day churches grew to what they have become today.
Our country was founded more on spiritual philosophies than political beliefs. Our constitution, Bill of Rights and other government documents are patterned after the ten commandments, bible, Magna Carta and other spiritual theories such as are held by the masonic order.
Many of our founding fathers held spiritual values not understood by the common man. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and others saw a need to have God remain as a central focal point in our daily lives and mentioned him often.
Most of them prayed daily, the sessions of government were opened with a prayer and their daily lives were governed by what they believed God wanted them to do.
There were also events of a more spiritual nature. George Washington saw the Iroquois Indian maiden, Sky woman, dressed in a white robe. During the encounter she told him many things about the future. She also reportedly showed him a map of how the United States would look years later, including many of the cities that would be built. The Iroquois planted the seeds for our government by showing him how their form of government was organized.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America as well as the aborigines of Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
We owe a debt of gratitude not only to our founding fathers but our American Indian friends as well who understood how important it was for the United States to become a nation.
He has published several books about his adventures.
