The Divine Marriage 

 

The definition of marriage is changing daily.

At one time, marriage was between one man and one woman, in today’s world, it can be between a man and a woman, two men, or two women.

Soon it will change and anything will be legal, threesomes, foursomes, group marriage or marriage to animals. Once the definition was changed, anything is permissible, it’s just a matter of time.

Although I agree with the concept that everyone has a right to run their life, and or screw it up however they choose, and two people can love each other, regardless of sex,  in my own opinion, there are limits.

Although marriage may be acceptable in many different forms, and we all need to experience various lifestyles as our soul evolves through many lifetimes, and gay marriage would certainly be a part of that overall experience, the final analysis is that a divine marriage would be between one man and one woman.

It all boils down to the twin flame concept, the duality of life which is evident in all phases of creation.

Everything on this planet has its polar opposite.

Male/female, black/white, positive/negative, light/dark, etc.

Drug Abuse In The Military

 

I am often reminded of how bad the drug and the alcohol problem is in this country. There are news reports daily concerning overdoses and deaths and it seems the problem becomes worse every day.

I never realized how long the problem had been developing until I recently talked with a friend of mine who was stationed on an aircraft carrier in 1967 during the Vietnam conflict.

He was telling me that it seemed like everyone was smoking pot on the carrier and the ship actually smelled of pot. 

If this is true, and I have every reason to believe it is, why didn’t the brass do something about it?

They were probably smoking also.

He was also telling me there were certain places on the ship that white sailors didn’t dare go, to do so would have been detrimental to their health and safety. 

How did this happen and why isn’t it being reported, these issues are detrimental not only to the sailors on board but to our nation’s safety as well. 

How are members of our military supposed to create a unit to fight for a common cause, when certain sailors can’t enter a part of the ship because of their race? I always thought this was discrimination.

In today’s world, we aren’t allowed to talk about such things because of political correctness and it may offend someone, what about the people who are being subjected to this kind of abuse and no one says anything, and if they do say something, they would be discredited and probably disciplined.

We have some serious problems in this country, how can we solve them if no one says anything because of political correctness?

If we can’t identify the problem and discuss it, the problem will only get worse and will never go away. 

It will only create more racial discord and magnify to become an even greater issue.

The Benghazi Video

We all remember the uproar created when Hillary blamed the attack on our embassy in Benghazi on a UTube video.

Even though that wasn’t the cause of the attack, it created quite a roar, and many still believe it.

About a month after the 2016 election, My wife and I happened to be having dinner at a restaurant in Venice Florida with a friend and a couple of her friends. 

I was sitting next to the gentleman and we were engaging in casual conversation when I by chance brought up the previous election. 

I think I said the wrong thing, the man next to me exploded, “I wouldn’t vote for Hillary on a bet,  Obama and she tried to get me killed.”

Taken aback, I asked why.

It seems he had produced the original video, which was favorable to the Islamic religion. It had been edited by the young producer and changed to cast an unfavorable light on the Muslim people, this was the video the blame for the attacks was placed on.

As a result, this man had all the major networks calling his office, who in turn called him to discover what was going on, when in fact, he knew nothing. 

Finally, the local sheriff gave him a visit and recommended he get out of the country for a while, which he did.

Even though he had nothing to do with the final production of the video and the video, in the end, had nothing to do with the Benghazi raid, his life and the life of his wife, and possibly even his employees was placed in grave danger.

All in the cause of politics and people in government having their own agenda, with little regard for anyone else or their safety.

More Modern Management Theory
A company had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Management said, “Someone might steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then management said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people: one person to write the instructions and one person to do time studies.

Then management said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing his tasks correctly?” So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people: one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then management said, “How are all these people going to get paid?” So they created positions for a timekeeper and a payroll officer and hired two more people to fill them.

Then management said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?” So they created an administrative section and hired three people: an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then management said, “We’ve had this command in operation for one year now and we’re $318,000 over budget. We have to cut back on overall costs.”

So they laid off the night watchman.

Changing The Hearts and Minds Of the People

 

Written By: Gary Wonning

Changing Hearts and Minds

Many people believe there is some sort of grand conspiracy involving individuals who are bent on destroying this country by turning it into a Socialist or even worse a Marxist country. I guess in the grand scheme of things one could call it a conspiracy, however, even though certain individuals have been trying to accomplish that for decades, there is no conspiracy as such.

Neither is it just a coincidence. The truth is that like attracts like and this being the case, like minds are attracted to each other. People with the same interests and desires are naturally drawn together as in a group consciousness.

Much of this thinking grew from the unrest in the sixties and dissatisfaction with the status quo. It was a time of prosperity and many people began to feel left out. Instead of improving themselves and finding ways to participate in the “American Dream”, Instead of working for it themselves, they began to devise ways to take the wealth others had created, either through taxation or other devious and subtle means.

Many times this stemmed from a lack of self-confidence people had in themselves.

Of course, the politicians and media recognized this immediately, it seemed like the ideal situation to not only sell more newspapers, but votes could be garnered by preying on people’s sympathies and tendencies to want to help the less fortunate, everyone loves a victim.

Rock Art

 

Written By: Gary Wonning

an excerpt from my book about life in the outback of Australia

Rock Art only has meaning to the author, it tells the story of some happening, it is ancient graffiti.

A Corroboree or songfest is the retelling of old stories, creations, they recreate through song and dance. They are practiced so the old ways won’t be forgotten, red facial paintings and costumes were all teaching aids, and stories and music are memory aids.

The stories and legends are laws on which Aborigine life is based.

We had to be careful, some of the aborigines don’t want to be photographed, they believe the picture carries the spirit of the person being photographed and if photographed it could destroy the spirit, the spirit resides in the photograph and thus leaves the person.

When the white man first appeared they wouldn’t let anyone photograph the rock art as they thought it destroyed the spirit of the painting.

While visiting White Horse Galley, we had the opportunity to observe Didgeridoo player Marcell Riguett. He was the first nonaboriginal to be granted permission to play here. This was my first opportunity to actually observe the Didgeridoo being played, it was interesting in that the musician actually breathes in through his nose and out through his mouth at the same time.

Religion and Basketball

Written By: Gary Wonning

In Indiana, we had two religions, church and basketball. We practiced both daily, went to church on Sunday and the basketball game on Friday night, without fail. High school basketball was so popular and important the school’s gymnasium would often hold more people than lived in the tiny towns.

The stores would close if there was a game in town, they may as well. There wasn’t anyone including the business owners, who were going to miss the big game.

There wasn’t enough money to make them keep open their store on Friday night.
