Utopian Societies Never Last

 

People often believe a Utopian society would be like heaven on earth, in reality many believe that heaven is a Utopian society where all we do is float around on a cloud and listen to some evolved soul enlighten us about heavenly matters.

Believe it or not, most souls do not stay in Utopian realities for very long. They easily get bored and begin seeking challenges.

Most souls throughout Creation prefer some degree of drama and challenge to spice up their existence. Having problems to solve can be stimulating and fun. Therefore, a healthy balance of male and female energy is most often preferred. 

People who seek an Utopian lifestyle would be the first to become dissatisfied and move on to more challenges, likewise, those who think they would prefer a society with no men, or men who are submissive like would soon discover the men would not be to their liking and would soon tire of playing the female dominance role. 

Many also believe a society where more feminine energy is present is a more positive environment.

Male energy is aggressive. When a world is overflowing with male energy, this typically creates a world driven by competition; wars thrive endlessly until there is only one man standing or until the world is completely destroyed.

When ego-based individuals interact with each other, they typically tend to compete for power and domination of all goods and resources. Conversely, female energy is passive, and when a planet is overflowing with this energy, it often becomes cooperative and peaceful; there is little to no competition and the world is driven by the sharing of goods and resources. However, when too much passive energy is flowing, reality can easily become uneventful. Passive civilizations are also more prone to invasion and conquest by others.

In spite of what many today believe, we need a balance of male and female energy, men are needed just as much as women, only through balance can we achieve perfection in our world.

Stress Is Another Word For Fear

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

Written by Gary Wonning

In spite of living in the modern day world where most of us live in a secure environment and relative free of life threatening issues, many people experience more fear than in times  past where many faced danger and even death on a daily basis. 

Fear is an unpleasant feeling of perceived risk or danger, real or not.

Fear also could be described as a feeling of extreme dislike to some conditions or objects, such as: fear of darkness, fear of ghosts, etc.

It is one of the basic emotions .

Fear inside a person has degrees and it’s different from one person to another  and if it’s not properly handled could lead to social and health problems. Fear can be described by different terms in accordance with its relative degrees – terror, fright, paranoia, horror, or even a persecution complex. 

Many times, controlling people use fear  as a powerful weapon, manipulating people into doing certain actions for the perpetrators personal gain.

Anxiety, stress, fear, phobia and tension are often used interchangeable to describe one of this century’s most common problems.

Anxiety has been called the official emotion of our age, the bases of all neuroses, and the most pervasive psychological phenomenon of our time.

Intense anxiety can shorten one’s attention span, make concentration difficult, cause forgetfulness, hinder performance skills, interfere with problem solving, block effective communication, arouse panic, and sometimes cause unpleasant physical symptoms such as paralysis, rapid heartbeat or intense headaches.

In all of it’s many forms, fear can be a serious detriment to health and in many cases it can be totally avoided.

After all is said and done, fear is only a factor in our lives when we discover it’s true identity, stress. 

As we lead our daily lives each of us have many things we can stress out about, the list is endless.  Only when we realize it is created in our mind can we deal with it and eliminate fear from our lives. 

FEAR is just an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real.  Most of what we fear never materializes, it is just our mind playing tricks on us, and if we stop and think most of the time we can create an environment where our fears never materialize. 

It is this thinking that creates undue stress, and this stress is created by a lack of faith.  We either have faith or fear in our lives, we can’t have both. 

Fear is running rampant in America today because many have lost faith, faith in themselves, faith in a higher power and the faith to know that in the end, everyt

The Birth of Moses In Egyptian Lore

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

There is often, according to which train of thought you follow, there a dispute about Moses’s heritage; he could have been a Semite, a Hyksos, or an Egyptian. Regardless of whether he was a Semite, a Hyksos, or an Egyptian.

He led his people out of Egypt and much of what the Hebrews knew and believed came from this event.

Moses was learned in the wisdom of the Egyptians, he would have known of the great secrets and knowledge of Seqenenre, and the secrets of resurrecting a new king.

Seqenenre was an Egyptian legend that corresponds closely with the legend of Hiram Abiff in Masonic Lore. 

Undoubtedly, this made a great impression on Moses and he would have relayed it to the ruling class and it eventually became the secret rite of passage for making a new king in the land of Israel and was passed onto the royal line of David.

How Do We Create Our Human Life

 

Written by Gary Wonning

Often times, when discussing free will with others , they will agree that we all have free will, the freedom to choose how and where to live our lives. 

But suddenly the barriers go up when we suggest we have free will and by having that freedom, we choose where and to whom we are born. Suddenly, that is God’s choice and we have nothing to do with it. 

How can we have free will to live our lives as we choose and not have the freedom to choose into what circumstances we are born?

Free will is free will, either we have it or we don’t. 

I suppose if you want to get philosophical, we can choose to not have free will, but I’m not sure how that works. 

In the general scheme of things, we create our life on earth by choosing and activating different versions of our life that has already been created at the spirit level of your consciousness, sort of like pre-programming  your television. 

Our thoughts, beliefs and what we imagine all go into this decision, along with what we desire to improve in our soul learning.

We actually project the thoughts we have imagined, thought and decided. 

We all have infinite possibilities and it is though our thoughts, we change our reality and life. We choose a general path before we enter the earthly existence, choosing wealth, poverty, freedom, enslavement , etc. all for our soul growth and enlightenment and have the ability to change our life path at any time.  

For some this is hard to grasp, that we would personally chose a life of hard times for the betterment of ourselves, they want to blame it on God or some other entity so they can remove all personal responsibility. 

It is only when one realizes they have chosen this life plan that they begin to realize the power of self realization, and as their soul growth begins, they begin to move away from self punishment and begin to realize they are entitled to much more positivity in their life.

We begin to realize that life is an illusion, life only exists in our perception of life, many times our perception is quite different than the person sitting beside us. 

We each live our own reality, it is our reality alone.

We Create Our Own Hell On Earth

 

Written by Gary Wonning

In many books and teachings, you are told that Earth is the most hellish planet in the universe, esoteric teachings teach us that many other planets have a much more  severe climate for learning than on planet earth. 

All religions, beliefs and cultures have their own definition of heaven and hell.  

For most, how one acts in this incarnation determines whether we go to heaven or hell when we leave this earthly existence. 

Either existence only becomes a reality after we pass on. 

While this is true to some extent and most believe some heavenly being determines which direction we go. It is entirely our  decision  how we spend eternity. 

We must be reminded, we all have free will and because of this, we all determine our life and destiny.  It is our decision, the creator grants us what we desire based on what we need to experience and our determination to advance our soul towards the next step in it’s growth. 

Our actions and thoughts in this moment of time creates our future, not only in a future life, but in this life also.  We create our own heaven and hell, or what our perspective of what those two different realities would be. 

Many times our definition of heaven would be hell for someone else, and our definition of hell would be heaven for many others. That is for the individual soul to determine based entirely on the lessons needed to be learned in this earthly existence.

One example would be the mate and people we choose to spend our lives with,  one persons dream mate would be a nightmare for someone else. 

A dream occupation for one, would be something another wouldn’t do if their life depended on it. It’s a matter of personal choice, depending on our life mission. 

Our challenges are what we make them, once we accept that, the challenges fade away and we are able to lead a happier productive life.

The Aborigine Dream Time in Modern Day Life

.photo of ayres rock, "uluru" in central Australia

The life of the Australian Aborigine

The Australian Aborigines believe in their Dream Time  that we dream about something before we actually do it, In other words, if we are planning on traveling to a distant city, we actually dream about it and  in our subconscious mine know what the final result will be before the actual journey begins. 

If we were as in tune to nature as they are, we would then be able to comprehend the future, and if something was to occur we didn’t want to participate in, we could change it before it happened. 

Many times, we believe  modern day people no longer or never had those abilities. We believe those talents are confined to people in the past, or prophets in the bible. 

That simply isn’t true. We all have those abilities, we just need to cultivate them. When a talent we have isn’t practiced or thought of it withers and dies just like a muscle in our body withers and dies if we don’t use it.  

My dad always talked about the time he applied for a job, he had never been to the building or workplace where the job was , but as he entered the building, he walked over to the workstation without any prompting from anyone. 

The human resources director was astonished that dad knew where to go, and questioned him as to whether he had been in the building prior to this particular time. 

Dad replied that he had never been there before, I don’t think either one ever realized what had just happened. 

Dad had a premonition, or dreaming and only followed his instincts after “dreaming” before the event.

We all have those abilities, we have just been conditioned to believe that we don’t, either through religion or a belief that we are not worthy and need someone else to dictate to us what we believe. 

For the human race to evolve into the next state of consciousness, we must all once again learn to develop our intuitive skills. We have come to a point in history here we can no longer trust anyone to tell us the truth without their bias, it is imperative we relearn these skills.

We Learn Life Lessons From the People Who Come Into Our Lives

 

Written by Gary Wonning

One of the hot topics in today’s culture is bullying. 

It can be a real issue for those, especially the young , who are affected by this. It can be a very traumatic experience for those who are victimized. 

The only problem is, there are no victims in life, only participants. These so called bullies come into our lives for a reason. All we need to do is to discover the reason we are being taken advantage of, and take appropriate action to resolve the issue to our advantage and improve our lives in the process. 

Sometimes the solution is a physical solution and we need to deal with it physically to teach the person a lesson he or she will remember for time immemorial. 

But most often, it doesn’t need to end this way. 

On a more subconscious level, the bully is trying to teach us a lesson, once  that is discovered, many times we can view that soul as someone who really made our life better by teaching us to become more self reliant, or guide us on a path of greater creativity.

If we go within, many times we will discover talents we never knew we had, sometimes these talents would never be discovered  unless we are shunned by others and the only friend we have is ourself and God. Once we do some soul searching we discover many things about ourself we never knew existed. 

We all have potential beyond our wildest dreams, but until we are forced to discover them, they go unnoticed. Only when an event outside ourselves creates an environment where we go must go within to find hidden strength, do we discover what we are really capable of accomplishing. 

Suppose you have the ability to become a great actor of singer, but because you are shy you never even think you could become what you dream. 

By suppressing your dream, you become even more shy by denying what your real character is, the more you talk yourself out of your dream, the more shy and unhappy you become until you are just  downright miserable. 

You would never get out of this vicious cycle if someone or something didn’t come along and rock your boat. 

Because, on some level of consciousness, we all create everything we experience, your subconscious mind, or higher self, (what many refer to as our Christ Consciousness) springs into action and begins the search for an answer to make you a better person and enable you to accomplish your life mission. 

Here comes the bully, who has volunteered his time to help you. Sooner or later, his actions, or the actions of another soul if he should fail, will wake you to the reality of life, be it this lifetime or the next. It is your choice. 

By his actions and yours, you are both evolving into a higher understanding of life. 

Many believe the philosophy that we, each and everyone of us create our own reality, but when the going gets tough their belief falters just when it is imperative they stand strong for their beliefs. 

This is the time one needs to do some serious contemplative thinking and look within and ask ourselves why we allowed this to happen to us.

When we do we will receive the answer and by owning up to the responsibility of creating our reality, we can overcome this obstacle and go on to lead the life we want and desire. 

No one can do this for us, not our parents, family, the government or any one else, it is for us to do and for us alone. 

It is only then that we can be proud of what we have overcome, and thank those who have aided us in our journey.
