Written by Gary Wonning

UPS always made extreme efforts to deliver every parcel on time, especially air parcels.

One morning as I was preparing to leave the building, my driver supervisor asked me where I was going to be at ten twenty. Being a smart aleck, I replied that I would be the same place I always was at ten twenty.

He said I needed to be at the Dairy Queen at ten twenty. I replied there was no way, I had a schedule to maintain and it would take me twenty minutes to drive out there and then drive back to resume my deliveries.

He replied there was a taxi cab bringing a next day air package from the Indianapolis airport and I needed to meet him and deliver it to the hospital before ten thirty.

Confused I asked what was going on. He related to me a package had missed its flight in Dallas the night before so UPS bought the parcel an airline ticket, flew it to Indy, and then hired a cab to bring it to Batesville seventy miles from the airport.

What else could I do?

I pulled off my area and drove to the Dairy Queen. As I drove behind the DQ, Gib the owner flagged me on. I stopped anyway and asked him what was going on. He replied the cab driver had been there ten minutes before with the package.

The cabbie asked Gib where the hospital was, Gib pointed to it across the field and instructed the cabbie to just take it over there.

Ah, the benefits of living in a small town.

What is Vortex Energy?

Written by Gary Wonning

A vortex is the funnel shape created by the motion of spiraling energy.

Familiar examples of vortex shapes are whirlwinds, tornadoes, and water going down a drain. A vortex is composed of anything that flows, such as wind, water, or electricity.

The vortexes in Sedona are swirling centers of magnetic and electromagnetic energy coming from under the surface of the earth.

There are four main energy vortexes in Sedona.

The subtle energy that exists at these locations interacts with the magnetic and electromagnetic energies of the individual soul and often times creates paranormal experiences for those who are sensitive to them.

This resonance happens because the vortex energy is very similar to the subtle energy operating in the energy centers inside each person. If you are a sensitive person, you will feel the energy, whether or not you are aware of being at a vortex.

The Christian Pet

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

This Christian couple felt it important to own an equally Christian pet.
So, they went shopping. At a kennel specializing in this particular breed, they found a dog they liked quite a lot.
When they asked the dog to fetch the Bible, he did it in a flash. When they instructed him to look up Psalm 23, he complied
equally fast, using his paws with dexterity. They were impressed, purchased the animal, and went home.

That night they had friends over. They were so proud of their new dog and his major skills, they called the dog and showed off a little.
The friends were impressed, and asked whether the dog was able to do any of the usual dog tricks, as well. This stopped the couple cold, as they hadn’t thought about “normal” tricks.
Well, they said, “Let’s try this out.”
Once more they called the dog, and they clearly pronounced the command, “Heel!”

Quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paw on the man’s forehead, closed his eyes in concentration, and bowed his head.

 

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Photography by Gary Wonning

Tampa is a city on Tampa Bay, along Florida’s Gulf Coast. A major business center, it’s also known for its museums and other cultural offerings. Busch Gardens is an African-themed amusement park with thrill rides and animal-viewing areas. The historic Ybor City neighborhood, developed by Cuban and Spanish cigar-factory workers at the turn of the 20th century, is a dining and nightlife destination.

The Tampa waterfront is beautiful in the evening.  The Hillsborough River runs through downtown with many restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels on either side.

With its perfect mix of historic architecture and modern landmarks, Cuban and Spanish culture-infused flavor, vibrant business districts and beautiful waterways, Tampa is a wonderful place to work, play and unwind.

Tampa is  a great city for all ages and tastes, offering hotel accommodations that fit any budget and catering to everyone from the families to outdoor adventure seekers to foodies and wine connoisseurs. Once known as a melting pot, Tampa remains a welcoming place for those seeking fun, opportunity and a chance to try new things.

Who Are Our Spirit Guides

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

The Spirit Guides are extensions of souls in a sense, and they are always connected with The Source of All That Is. They are our helpers in the spirit world.

They come from all walks of life and many times are our departed friends and ancestors who have come to guide and assist us. Many times we have known each other through many incarnations and existences in the other world. It is always a matter of choice to become a guide: not all souls choose to be spirit guides.

There are many souls who continue their spiritual evolution without choosing this elevated purpose, and often times they choose to be a guide, then choose not to for a time. As with all things, because of free will, the choice is theirs.

The decision is often made depending on how it will fulfill their own spiritual evolution, and the ones they are assisting. 

The Guide’s consciousness is more elevated because they exist at the same level of consciousness even if they choose to take a physical form. Many times, they remain in spirit form and communicate telepathically, enabling them to fulfill many missions at one time.

The Tree of Life

Even when they are in the physical form, they are still awake to the promptings of the soul, thus enabling them to assist in many ways. 

This enables them to access the Akashic  records to better understand the issues before us. 

The Guides and Masters, as well as all of the other evolved souls, can choose to reincarnate with only a part of their energy while the other part can remain in spirit, all the while existing at the same level of consciousness— the higher self level. They as well as those of us in physical form become omnipresent, meaning we can be in many dimensions simultaneously.

We are only aware  of the reality we are focusing on, and for most we only briefly “see” or “feel” other dimensions, times, and realties, leading us to inquire and learn more of our spiritual existence and our relationship to the Divine Creator. 

The Spirit Guides can choose to continue guiding other souls when part of their energy is reincarnated, if they decide to,  and they can even guide the incarnated part or parts of their own self.

It is a complex operation, many facets make up the whole and an unlimited set of possibilities. 

Many times to complicated for our humble human mind to understand.

Lets Keep Politics Out of Important Issues

Where did common sense go?

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Often times matters of extreme importance are clouded by politics and once that process begins, regardless of the issue and it’s importance, half of the population will be against any change only because it has been taken up as a banner of a political party.

Art Prints

Climate change or global warming is a prime example.

Before the year 2000, everyone was on board, and still are about our concerns about the environment. In fact many strides had been made making our environment cleaner than it has been for years.

But, once it became a political football in the year 2000, and if you disagreed with the prognosis of certain politicians you were automatically deemed ignorant, ill informed and politically incorrect, it instantaneously annihilated half the population of the United States, once that half becam indignant, the other half followed suit. 

Since that period of time, almost nothing has been done except hurl brickbats at those with an opposing view.

How much better it was before this came about.

So it is with many of our other social issues, when the people decide for themselves, without the interference of political parties, much better results can be obtained.

The American people are intelligent enough, both sides of the political spectrum, to decide right from wrong. Once politicians and the media gets involved, all bets are off.

The same goes for all our other issues, racial, sexual, economic, etc.

Unless  politicians have been involved in the private sector, the only skill they have is getting reelected.

They know nothing concerning how the world operates.

It’s time they begin assuming the roles they were destined to follow,  the roles designed by our founding fathers.

They are our representatives in government, not our leaders.

We, the people, in America, are our own leaders.

We can be quite good at it if left alone by big brother.

get out of our way, we got this.
