So many people are  wrapped up in pursuing the material things in life they forget about what is really important.

We all like, and deservedly so want nice things in our life, and we deserve those. But in the process, we forget what is really important.

I lived in a town where almost everyone one worked at the local casket factory where hundreds of caskets were produced every day.

I have seen many of them roll off the assembly line, I have yet to see one with a trailer hitch on the back. We can’t take our earthly possessions with us.

We need to understand it is our spiritual life that is the most important. What the soul learns it retains. The physical, material part of life is secondary, whatever we have, we will eventually lose, wealth or poverty isn’t important, it how we react to it, is what is important.

It seems to me, in most cases, the people who are the most successful in life and lead the most fulfilling lives are the ones who adhere to their spiritual beliefs, regardless if they are Christian, Jewish , or one of the may other beliefs in our world.

When we have our spiritual life in order, the physical life will fall in line and reality will become just what we would want.

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

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 and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures.
