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.

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 Early Days Of UPS

Written By: Gary Wonning

There were benefits to working at night. Naturally, living in Indiana, one is never far from a basketball hoop. No building is ever complete without one either inside or outside the building. Conveniently, in this situation, one was inside, so the night shift, which consisted of the mechanic and myself, always included at least one game of horse or one on one. Occasionally a driver or two would stop by and we could get a real game up.

In the early days things were pretty loose, our center manager normally was nowhere to be found and we were about eighty miles from Indianapolis, so most of the time we could operate under the radar. It was a time before time clocks. If a driver was running late due to a card game or he found a coon dog for sale, he could just write in the time he was supposed to be in instead of the time he actually returned, as long as he looked good on paper, nothing was said.

I remember one time a driver arrived back at the center and cautiously asked if any management was around, once the porter answered there wasn’t, he proceeded to unload two calves from the back of his car. Another time a driver was seen unloading some live chickens, not to mention the time a motorcycle was spotted being off loaded. Ah, those were the days.

They ended way too soon.

Muslim Attacks in the Mediterranean Lead to the “Discovery” of the New World

The Discovery of the New World

An interesting photo book about the Maya Indians of central America

Written by:Gary Wonning

The Muslims and Christians have been fighting for centuries, it has been an on-going battle that has continued through the millennia.

During that time period, Muslim pirate Barbarossa wrecked havoc in the Mediterranean, raiding the coasts of France, Italy, and Spain, carrying away thousands of Europeans into slavery. In the process,Muslim Turks had conquered the Byzantine Empire,  u were invading Serbia, Hungary, and Bulgaria. Suleiman’s armies surrounded Vienna, Austria, in 1529. For centuries Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan conquerors killed  millions of Hindus and Sikhs in India and the East.

The Spanish soldier proved to be the most successful champion in defending Christendom. Spain’s King Ferdinand put a halt to the 700-year Muslim occupation of western Europe. Using gold from the New World, Spain was able to push back the Muslim invaders on land and sea.

It was during this time, the Europeans began running out of resources to fight the good fight. At the risk of Europe being over run and conquered by the invaders, new sources of revenue had to be found and found quickly.

Hearing of vast sources of gold and other valuable resources to the west, their attention naturally turned to discovering ways of tapping into this perceived wealth.

The Spanish at that time were one of the major leaders in the world so the task fell to them to explore the new world.

The natives of the America’s had never advanced their civilization one iota over the last ten thousand years and thus had none of the modern conveniences or technology the Europeans, Chinese, Tuks or others possessed, so it was just a matter of time before they were conquered by someone, at the time, the Spanish were the most powerful.

There is a lesson to be learned here for everyone when we don’t advance our learning and knowledge, sooner or later another culture will overtake us and destroy our way of life.

The Wisdom of our Ancestors: Return to the Land

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

Written by; Gary Wonning

Return to the Land

Because modern technology has resulted in an easier life style, America as well as much of the rest of the world has moved away from being an agrarian society. Societies before ours lived much closer to the land, their whole life centered on the weather, and the abundance or lack thereof, of the annual harvest. When the harvest was bad, people grouped together because of a need to survive. The ancient aborigines didn’t even reproduce during years of severe drought.

With all of our modern advances, we have theoretically eliminated starvation and need in modern society. If one is willing to work and place their priorities in the proper perspective, one can achieve anything his or her heart desires as long as they have the human capabilities to do it.

In most cases this is a good thing, however, there is a down side also. By eliminating much of the hardships our ancestors endured, we have also eliminated the sense of community and dependence on each other, as well as our closeness to the earth and our natural world.

Even our native cultures, what is left of them, have moved away from their basic moral structure and become less spiritual than in previous generations. Many have lost their way and have resorted to drugs and alcohol as a means of dealing with life’s problems.

Art Prints

I don’t think there are many people alive today that if they had a choice, would want to live in a teepee or a “humpie” in the outback of Australia and many people no longer have a spiritual foundation, as is evidenced in their life style. Having said that, there are still many people who would like to be able to follow the customs and beliefs of their native peoples, while maintaining their current lifestyle.

Civilization, as we know it started with a high spiritual base and slowly moved to a more materialistic society, with it came an easier, safer life with more comfort than our ancestors could have imagined in their wildest dreams.

Along the way, we have lost sight of what is really important in life, we, as a whole have lost sight of our moral values, the values which built this great society in which we live. It is now time to return to the beliefs of our forefathers, they knew what they were talking about.

The Declining State of the U.S. Military

A picture of the U.S. Capitol building

What has Government Done for You?

Written By; Gary Wonning

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to talk with a Master Sergeant in the Marine Corps.

After discussing current political issues for a few minutes, I asked him point blank if the military was in as a bleak condition as many say they are.

All he did was grimace and give me a nod to the affirmative.

He said moral was at an all time low, in the twenty-six years he has served he said he has never seen things the way they are today.

There is a general lack of discipline and respect.  Many no longer respect each other, many young recruits no longer respect superior officers. If given a direct order they will respond that they have something else they need to do first, or ignore the order altogether.

Many of the younger soldiers will start to cry if criticized or reprimanded.

How are we supposed to fight a war, if needed, with solders such as these? What use are they?

How did we get here?

Many want to blame Obama and his gang of liberals.

You can’t blame Obama entirely, he just took advantage of a situation that was handed to him on a silver platter.

He was voted into office by American citizens.

For the past sixty years ,we have been traveling down this road of liberalism. Most of us never said a word, we just went along enjoying the good life given to us by not only our hard work but the hard work and sacrifice of those who came before us.

Now the chickens have come home to roost.

We have descended into moral and culture decay through our own actions. Now , many forces have come into play to change our country into something we no longer recognize. Before log it will be too late, now is the time to begin to change the direction we are headed.

It will be difficult, but it can be done, it will take the actions of all of us, the government can’t and won’t do it for us, they are in on the scheme.

The only way to rectify the current trend is for each and every one of us to take control of our lives, make our own decisions and stop letting the government do everything for us.

Our country wasn’t founded on the idea of socialism and dependency, it was founded so each of us could lead our own lives based on how we wanted to live.

If we return to the principles of hard work, personal responsibility, and a belief in a higher source, we can turn this thing around.

Those Were The Days My Friend

100 years of service

Those were the days my friends

Written By; Gary Wonning

Those were the days my friend, we thought they would never end.

It was a great time to grow up. The war babies and baby boomers were the recipients of a time brought to us courtesy of the “Greatest Generation”. Our parents had endured a depression, and a world war to set in place a time of prosperity never seen before in our history

We grew up in the land of bobby socks and blue jeans, rock and roll, blue suede shoes, white bucks and flat tops. We were all about hot cars, loud music and dancing the night away. It was a time of innocence, sex wasn’t passed out like cotton candy and drugs were unheard of. We sometimes did overindulge in alcohol, but our shenanigans were mild compared to what came in the decades to follow.

Relive the days of yesteryear.
