100 years of service

Written by: Gary Wonning

UPS has the best accident-free safe driving record of any trucking company in the United States, and the Indiana District had the best safe driving record in UPS. That particular night, eight of the top ten seniority drivers who had acquired twenty-five years or more seniority from the Versailles center were present to receive an award for driving twenty-five or more  accident-free years.

But it goes beyond that, The Indiana District was thought of by many in the company as the best district in the country in all areas of performance. When the center managers from Indiana attend the management training school, they are held to a higher standard and often admired by managers from other states and districts because of the performance of the state in general. They are given the responsibility to continue and maintain the high standards of excellence the district had achieved.

Versailles Center was first or near the top in many areas other than safe driving. Their dedication to service, reliability, following up on problems, putting the customer first, following the dress codes and many other areas lead many to believe Versailles Center, located in rural southeastern Indiana as one of the finest centers in the company.

Most of the book centers on my personal feelings and experiences, however, what I saw and experienced could be the experiences of anyone who worked there.

This is our story.

Putting Spiritual Teachings Into Practice

Written By: Gary Wonning

About this time I began reading, “Strangers Among Us”, by Ruth Montgomery. This book detailed a process to channel the energies around us, thereby enabling us to manifest the things we need in our lives. It is explained in the book how to use the energies in the universe, channeling them through our bodies, and create the things we need in this reality. The examples given teach us how to manifest parking places and also how to make clouds disappear. I became extremely interested, working for UPS, I was always looking for a parking spot, and I certainly didn’t enjoy working in the rain!

I tried first to mentally dissolve a cloud, by channeling love energy through my body and out my solar plexus to the cloud, sending it as warm loving energy, and to my amazement, it worked. I became fascinated with this and spent a large amount of time dissolving clouds.

A Journey into the unknown

A journey of spiritual discovery

 

One day during an extremely rainy month, and strictly for my own amusement, I was standing next to a factory performing my “magic” on a small fluffy white cloud, one that is just the right size. I suppose I did look kind of silly, just standing there looking up into the sky, someone walked past, and noticing me staring upward said, “Boy , the weather is really starting to get nice, the clouds are starting to disappear”.

It was then I said to myself, I said,” Self, you need to spend less time making clouds disappear, and you need to be working on something more constructive”.

Suspicious Women

Sometimes women are overly suspicious of their husbands….

When Adam stayed out very late for a few nights, Eve became upset.

“You’re running around with other women,” she told her mate.

“Eve, honey, you’re being unreasonable,” Adam responded. “You know  you’re the only woman on earth.”

The quarrel continued until Adam fell asleep, only to be awakened by a strange pain in the chest. It was his darling Eve
poking him rather vigorously about the torso.

“What do you think you’re doing?” Adam demanded.

“Counting your ribs,” said Eve.

Life Choices and Inner Guidance

What has Government Done for You?

Written By ; Gary Wonning

Often times when making life changing decisions we need to rely on inner guidance, that little voice we all need to listen to more often. It has a habit of laying out our best course of action a little bit at a time, not one big lump sum at the tender age of twenty-one when we think we know everything, when in actuality, we know very little.

The Australian Aborigines believe they “dream” something up, before it actually happens, therefore, when the event comes to pass, they already know the correct course to follow. They believe their dreams are a precursor to actual events, even if they don’t actually remember the particular dream , they believe it is in their subconscious and is there for remembering at the proper time.

The Cocoa Tree

The cocoa nut

 

Written By: Gary Wonning

The cultivation and use of cocoa was begun early in Meso-America.

Studies suggest the tree was domesticated and originated in Amazonia. Cacao or Kakaw,  according to Maya belief was discovered by the gods in a mountain that also held other delectable foods that were used by the native Mayas.

YOUR ONLINE BELIZE STORE

Mayan mythology states that after humans were created from maize the Plumed Serpent gave cacao to the Mayas. Cocoa was regularly given as a sacrifice to the many Mayan Gods , often times priests would lance their ears and cover the cacao with their blood as a sacrifice. This ritual was only performed by the men, as cacao was thought to be toxic to women and children.

Soon the Maya learned to flavor the cocoa by mixing it with maize, chili, vanilla, peanut butter(the original Reese Cups) and honey. (Cookies and Cream came later.) It is believed the Aztecs learned to grind it and mix with tobacco .

Christopher Columbus was the first European to encounter cocoa after capturing a canoe at Guanaja  and finding a large quantity of odd looking almonds. From this encounter cocoa naturally spread throughout Europe and became a popular drink the world over.

Our tour guide and hotel manager assured us they would find us a place to stay, our luggage would be fine in the hotel  lobby. Not having any other choice, everyone reluctantly left all their worldly goods in the lobby. Fully expecting to never see it again, we set out on a full day of sight seeing.

YOUR EGYPTIAN ONLINE STORE

A trip to Egypt should never be completed without visiting this area. Much of the world’s ancient history is on display here. Karnak, the Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, and many ancient Egyptian temples and shrines are within driving distance. Also not to be missed is King Tut’s tomb. It isn’t a Club Med vacation, but everyone should experience this at least once in their lifetime.

Luxor, one of the oldest cities, not only in Egypt, but in the world provides a giant history lesson. Many of Egypt’s most famous landmarks lie within the town or with in a short driving distance of the metropolis.

Donald Trump’s Language Is Deplorable

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written By: Gary Wonning

Without question, I think everyone can agree that Donald Trump’s language is deplorable.

However, if you would sit around the table with the average American on Thanksgiving  Day, I would venture to say you would hear the same kind of language, or even worse. 

Our elected officials are not our leaders, they are our representatives. 

They represent who we are as a nation, they are a direct reflection what we have become. 

We have forgotten the values and principles that made this country great.

If you want to change America, you need to look within yourself and change yourself. Change comes from within. Only when we change ourselves will our country once again become great.
