Searching For Enlightenment

Written By; Gary Wonning

It was in 1987 and I had just returned from Egypt, theShirley Mclaine movie, “Out On A Limb” had just premiered on TV. 

A friend of mine approached me about starting a metaphysical study group in town. 

I was all for it, but I made the statement that I doubted that many would come, I knew everyone in town and even though I had discussed it with several people, no one really showed an interest.

My friend went ahead and started the group and much to my surprise, almost sixty people came to the first meeting and the meetings went on for years.

People were reluctant to discuss their beliefs with someone else. Even though most were catholic, which I thought would be a deterrent, once they were in a comfortable environment with like-minded people, they willingly discussed their feelings on various topics.

You never know how what you do will effect others until you do it.

The Land of the Pharaoh

Written By: Gary Wonning

As the plane made it’s final approach into Cairo over the Egyptian desert, a chill went up my spine. Looking out the window, I saw the exact same scene I had visualized a few years earlier during the hypnotic regression when I experienced coming to earth several thousand years ago.

I had regressed back to a time in Egypt when I recalled teleporting from another planet, as my soul entered the earth’s atmosphere, I sensed I was forming a body by consciously gathering the minerals and elements out of the earth’s atmosphere.

I set foot on planet earth for the first time, I had come to Saqqara Egypt, a place not far from here. Now as the plane came in for it’s final approach, with darkness descending over the desert, looking out the window and seeing the Giza pyramids, I suddenly recalled seeing the same scene I remembered from my hypnotic session. WOW!

My mind raced back to that session, I had never been here before in this lifetime, there is no way I could have known what Egypt would look like at this time of day. I began to recall the things I had said and remembered during the recall, it had been a time of an awakening, a time to realize there was more to life than conventional wisdom teaches us.

What Is God’s Will

Written By: Gary Wonning

God’s Will

It is not always easy for us to know what God’s Will is. There are many misconceptions about what is meant by that. Many fundamentalists believe it means a life of sacrifice and giving up all of life’s pleasures.

Nothing can be further from the truth, God would not have provided all that he has if he had meant for us to not partake in the rewards of life. While it is true some sacrifice is involved, life isn’t meant to be all work and no play.

While there is some sacrifice involved, it only means giving up some of our animalistic instincts and developing self-control. It means taking control of your life and treating others as you would be treated.

It means living by the Will of God, or doing as your higher self or God would desire you to do.

The Lost Culture Of the American Indian

Written By: Gary Wonning

The Lost Culture Of The American Indian

The American Indian, once a proud and honorable culture has succumbed to being dependent on the government for their very existence. At one time they as a whole were very independent and had a firm relationship with their Supreme Being or Their “God”.

And as such were very close and dependent on nature and the whims of the weather. They were so in tune they knew of approaching storms, hard times and stampeding buffalo. They often foretold of coming events, not only for their own personal tribes but for mankind and the earth as well.

This is not to say they were perfect, they knew little of fertilization and thus did farm out the land and when it became too depleted to raise crops, and the game had been all taken, they would move on to more fertile ground, thereby enabling the land replenish itself. They fought wars, captured slaves and committed many of the same atrocities as modern man.

The American Indian never developed any technology and thus didn’t advance their civilization one iota over ten thousand years, they were still living much the same in Columbus’s time as they were thousands of years before. This one fact eventually lead to their downfall, being big on spirituality and short on technology can only lead to disaster.

Today we have advanced to having the most technologically advanced society the modern world has ever known. We have new innovations coming at us daily, often times so rapidly it is hard to keep up. In the process, we Americans are also losing our rich culture.

Spirituality has become non-existent, many no longer practice any form of spirituality or religious belief and many times people who are so inclined are ridiculed into submission, so they remain quiet.

The Reason For Reincarnation

 

Many people are in a dilemma about some of the social issues that are prevalent today,  issues like gay marriage, abortion, etc.

Many people get all worked up and emotional because someone else doesn’t think or believe as they do, they think we should live in a cookie-cutter society where everyone thinks the same.

For a variety of reasons, that isn’t and shouldn’t happen. We all come in with a different life plan, and that includes leading the kind of life where we can grow and experience new things.

If one studies reincarnation you soon realize that as we progress lifetime to lifetime, we incarnate differently each time, sooner or later we all live lives as a male or female, we incarnate as different races, and different political and social views each time we come back.

We also come back with different sexual preferences at various times during our existence, we all are gay, straight, and bisexual,  as well.

We soon find we can no longer hold a prejudice toward anyone once we realize we have been of that persuasion at some point in our evolution.

It just goes to show that we are all the same, but different. 

Thankfully, we all live in a country where we can be who we are, without fear of what someone might do to us because of our different lifestyles.

In my opinion, we just need to live and let live. As long as it doesn’t affect my life and what I do, it really doesn’t matter.

The Gnostic Resurrection

In the Gnostic work, Treatise Resurrection, ordinary human existence is described as spiritual death whereas the resurrection is the moment of enlightenment revealing what truly exists. Whoever grasps this idea becomes spiritually alive and can be resurrected from the dead immediately.

The Gospel of Phillip says:

Those who say they will die first and then rise are in error, they must receive the resurrection while they live.

This is in direct conflict with the church that believes only those who have had direct access to Christ, or their representatives have direct access to the resurrection, all others must go through them.

Most Gnostics view Jesus, not as a God, but as the man who illuminated the pathway.

Whoever sees the Lord through inner vision can claim his or her own authority equals or surpasses that of the apostles and their successors.

In other words, they don’t need an intermediary to communicate with God.

The concept of gnosis(knowledge) is the exact opposite of the Church’s concept of faith. and it is the type of thought process that fits well with masonry.

Twin Flames: The Dual Pillars Of Civilization

Since the beginning of time, the duality of the twin pillars have been a central figure in society. From ancient  Sumeria when the tower of Babel and the Ziggurat symbolized duality and through the time of Egypt when there were columns on both sides to the entrance of the ancient temples, the twin columns have symbolized establishment and strength.

Just as the two pillars of civilization, Jachin and Boaz are the glue that holds a civilization together so are the two pillars of the twin flames, the glue that holds relationships together. 

Only when individual souls are matched with like souls can they both accomplish what they were incarnated to do.
