Written by Gary Wonning

The fifth and final principle to safe driving is to Make Sure They See You

To make sure they see you; Communicate in traffic with your horn, lights, and signals to establish eye contact with motorists and pedestrians.

By paying attention to your surroundings you can Be reasonably sure of other people’s intentions and act or react accordingly.

 To see and be seen always make eye contact if possible. 

If you don’t believe they see you or realize they are in your traffic path Honk horn (twice), Turn on/off headlights, or if they are following you, Tap brakes several times in succession.

And last but not least, remember that long lost tradition, Use turn signals.

In living life, as well as driving, Make sure everyone around you is aware of your actions and desires, as well as you of theirs. We can’t negotiate the highways of life if we are unsure of what the people in our circle of influence and ourselves in particular want, need or will do.

It certainly will not solve or prevent  all our problems, however , when challenges do arise,applying the five seeing habits of safe driving to our lives can and will enable you to negotiate the highway of life with a lot less stress and disappointment.

Safe Driving is a way of life.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

How To Apply Safe Driving Habits To Everyday Living

The third principle to safe driving is to Keep Your Eyes Moving

 Scan- Don’t stare. Constantly shift your eyes while driving, Active eyes keep up with changing traffic conditions.

Check all mirrors every 5-8 seconds

Scan with your eyes every 2 seconds

Never stare at an object for more than 2 seconds, not even at Brad Pitt or Angeline Joline!

Eliminate eye holding patterns

Adjust speed to existing conditions, speed up or slow down

Driving comes first, eating , changing radio, A/C, talking on cell phone, etc, all come secondary.

If you get tired, turn up radio, turn up A/C, sing to yourself, or better yet pull over and take a break.

Applying this principle to our daily lives we need to remember to always remain vigilant, don’t get stuck in  a rut and neglect to pay proper attention to what is going on around you. The business of life comes first , keep from getting distracted.

Stay alert to the possibilities of what could go “wrong” and be prepared for them.

none of us are immune from hard times and disaster striking at any moment.

The second rule to safe driving is to  Get The Big Picture

You d this by maintain the proper following distance so you can comfortably determine the true hazards around your vehicle and don’t tailgate others.

Be aware of all objects and obstacles(dogs, cats ,deer, ladders in the road , etc.) scan other vehicles to be aware of things that might fall off into your path. The road isn’t going anywhere, once you know where it is, observe things that might move into your line of travel.

Scan 1-2 city blocks ahead in town and ½ mile on highways, expressways & country roads

Scan sidewalk to sidewalk in town

Fence row to fence row in the country

Be aware of all areas and all things around your vehicle

Back only when necessary and back before parking when you are more aware of your surroundings and those things that can move into your line of travel.

When backing , double check to make sure no one or nothing is behind your vehicle, get out of the vehicle and physically check if necessary. This can be done while walking to your vehicle.

Applying these rules to life we learn to maintain a safe distance between us and the obstacles we may face. We need to be aware of all challenges that may come our way as far ahead of time as possible so the proper actions may be taken to lessen the effects of a possible problem, while only looking back to remember and cherish where we came from and how far we have traveled.

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.

Lessons Learned in Sedona: Our Spiritual Life

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

So many people are  wrapped up in pursuing the material things in life they forget about what is really important.

We all like, and deservedly so want nice things in our life, and we deserve those. But in the process, we forget what is really important.

I lived in a town where almost everyone one worked at the local casket factory where hundreds of caskets were produced every day.

I have seen many of them roll off the assembly line, I have yet to see one with a trailer hitch on the back. We can’t take our earthly possessions with us.

We need to understand it is our spiritual life that is the most important. What the soul learns it retains. The physical, material part of life is secondary, whatever we have, we will eventually lose, wealth or poverty isn’t important, it how we react to it, is what is important.

It seems to me, in most cases, the people who are the most successful in life and lead the most fulfilling lives are the ones who adhere to their spiritual beliefs, regardless if they are Christian, Jewish , or one of the may other beliefs in our world.

When we have our spiritual life in order, the physical life will fall in line and reality will become just what we would want.

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.
