I have finally come to realize my view points are entirely different than most people on planet earth.
I have traveled extensively and observed life in many ways most people never have the opportunity to participate in.
Many years ago, I questioned the existence of God and the mysteries of life. I began to wonder what it was all about and after asking people of faith, the only answer I received concerning an issue I was having about why bad things happen to good people, the only answer was that it was God’s Will. To me that was a non answer.
Why does God will me for a particular event and not someone else. Thus through my search I began to find my answers. The search took me to many lands and I was privileged to talk with many spiritual leaders, many who were from native cultures.
I was fortunate enough to make contact with life forms not of this planet, and from them have and continue to learn much. We are not alone in the universe.
The life journey we are all one can only be done alone, we must walk alone. Many times others will come into our life for a brief time or longer to aid and assist, but the journey is ours. No one can take it for or from us. What I have discovered is my truth, and no one can take it from me. If you don’t understand or cannot comprehend what I am referring to, I understand, you are on your own path. We each experience reality in a different manner and what I have seen and felt has set me apart from others, that is OK.
It just sometimes makes for a lonely life. But, often times the loneliness gives me the opportunity to explore creation even more and learn new things. We choose to be born into a life situation of our own free will and accord. From the very beginning of life we learn from the environment we are born into. I was born on a small farm and was an only child for about ten years, during that time, I spent many hours alone and entertaining myself. It gave me much time to contemplate life and to form my own conclusions based on my parents and others input.
It gave me a perspective that stays with me even today, my core values remain much the same as they were during my childhood. I believe, based on universal truths, those truths carried down from the beginning of time: many of the time worn values that have given us the life and freedoms we enjoy should never change. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0553273701/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=garwonpho-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=0553273701&linkId=f56c4bb38690967e95270b52cd7c5997 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. For more information, please consult his website,www.journeysthrulife.com.
