Where are the Parents?

Written by Gary Wonning

Every year there are fund raisers to buy school supplies for children returning to school.

The schools say they can’t affort it while paying school board member $200,00 a year plus, but that is another story.

When at school, many of the kids are not only given free lunches and in many cases free breakfast, now some schools are also providing free dinners because they come from single parent or low income homes.

Where are the parents, I think we  all know.

Many had kids before they could afford them, many children  are being raised in single parent homes, and many are laying in the corner drunk or on drugs.

Personal responsibility has become a thing of the past. In many instances, people have become so accustomed to letting the government solve all their problems they no  longer even consider the fact they may have a part in governing their own lives.

It has become fashionable to play the part of the victim, by becoming a victim in as many areas as they can, they believe it increases their importance to society and dissolves any responsibility they may have, it’s always someone else’s fault.

By becoming a victim, they draw a lot of attention to themselves in the same way some people are always late to a meeting, they get a lot of attention by making a grand entrance after everyone else is already there.

Many adults grew up in environments where there was no guidance in how to conduct their life and garner positive attention by doing positive deeds.

Kids have grown up being coddled with their every need supplied by someone else and sheltered from life’s hardships.  As a result when they grow up they are left with no coping skills and unable to function as they should. In turn they raise their kids the same way they were raised, only  coddling them more then they were while growing up. 

Each generation continues to buy into the victim mentality until very few actually know anything about personal responsibility and becoming self reliant. 

Many have forgotten what  Our Ancestors taught us.

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

If we don’t break the cycle, how many kids will there be needing support from government and society in the next generation?

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

While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in 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.

Teaching Morals in School

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Here is a Quote from 1892 on Teaching Morals in the Public Schools.

1892 :The American Teachers Union declare that schools should continue to teach morals from the Bible as schools are turned over to the various States from the Christian Churches. Prior to this many schools had been run by churches of various denominations. Many state Constitution’s mandate the teaching of morals, religion and knowledge.

WONDER WHY–we have governments that can no longer be trusted at every level to protect the rights of individuals to “secure in their persons and property”?

How many schools actually teach morals and ethics. Do you think this may be our problem with society in America?

Have we Accomplished Anything By Legalizing Abotion

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

When the government made abortion legal, it took away all the legal and moral ramifications.

As a result, there were more abortions than ever which created an atmosphere of irresponsibility, and it rapidly became a form of birth control, which resulted in a moral breakdown, especially among the young.

Before abortion was legal, people were humiliated and scorned for getting pregnant, as a result, if a teen became pregnant they normally got married or gave the child up for adoption. Many pregnant unmarried teenage girls left town until they gave birth to prevent the humiliation. Pregnant girls were forced to drop out of school.

Because of the social stigma, many thought twice before committing acts that would create an out of wedlock pregnancy. Even though it may have seemed cruel at the time, the positive effects were that it created humans who were able to stand up to life’s challenges by accepting responsibility for their actions and taught them to not blame others for what they, themselves had created. 

Now teen pregnancy is accepted and often encouraged.  but by making it acceptable the number of unwed mothers has skyrocketed and many more children are placed at risk, the number of children living in one parent families has skyrocketed, leaving many of them living in poverty.

As is most often the case, the government’s attempt to solve a problem by removing personal responsibility has backfired and more people are at risk and personal responsibility has all but been removed from the public scene.

Growing children need boundaries,  guidance, and to be taught there are consequences for their actions. When people are coddled and excuses made for their actions, it only creates an atmosphere where ethical standards are relaxed and soon people begin to make unwise choices without even thinking what the consequences may be, this can only lead to one result, and it isn’t the preferred choice.

Then we all sit back and wonder what happened.

Just another example of how liberalism doesn’t work, they try to cater to the so-called weak, and by doing so, they just create more weak and needy people. You cannot build people up by making life easy for them. The human soul needs challenge and adversity to evolve.

Besides the moral and ethical aspects of it by interfering with their karma you are taking away their life plan, that’s why the more you give someone, the angrier they get and they seem unappreciative and bitter, you are running their life and taking away their purpose. Doing just the opposite of what needs to be done.

The soul doesn’t want to be coddled, it needs to be challenged in order for it to fully evolve into its full potential. 

We need to stay out of their lives, let them make their own choices and only guide them on their path through life. 

How often do we, as a society need to relearn the same things over and over, sooner or later we will get it.

Why We Should Pray In Public

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Although many would disagree, I believe we should all pray in public.

It is our right as American citizens of this great country.  We do have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion as most would try to have you believe.

The founding fathers were very explicit in their belief that we should practice our spiritual beliefs in public as was done almost automatically in our country until just a few short years ago.

Out of respect for others who may not believe as we do, we do need to practice restraint and not try to force our beliefs on others or pray in such a way as to make it appear as if we are trying to convert the whole world.

You see many proclaiming their beliefs to the world every day, and that will turn many people off to the whole religion thing, it is their right to do so and my opinion is to just let them do their thing, it is their right and it interferes with my rights in not even the slightest.

If we do not express our beliefs in public, how does anyone know how we feel, if enough people fail to express themselves, then a false narrative is portrayed and people begin to believe that no one believes in God anymore.

That opens the door for all sorts of negative philosophies to stumble in.

To survive long term, a nation needs a moral compass. There isn’t a perfect person on the planet, and many will stumble on their walk through life, but we all need a guide and moral compass to inspire us to live a better life, without it, we will most certainly stumble more than we do now.

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.

The Christian View of Gay Marriage

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Many are confused as to what a Christian’s view of gay marriage should be. 

It’s as plain as humps on a camel.

Photography Prints

Regardless of whether you accept gay marriage as a legitimate marriage or you feel it is wrong, as a christian, you are taught to be tolerant of others and their opinions. 

A christian wold be tolerant, it’s none of anyone’s business what your  preferences are, it’s none of anyone else’s business how you feel about something or what your opinions are.

What each soul does or doesn’t do is their own choosing, they are the ones who have to deal with their karma. It really is none of your business how they live, unless their decisions affect your life. 

Also, it is none of their business what your opinions are, we each have a right to think, feel, and act in America., as long as we harm no one else. 

We each have free will, that is what America is all about.

The Egyptians Knew How To Build A Society

Sell Art Online

 

The Egyptians were able to predict the flooding of the Nile River and in so doing plan the best time to plant their crops. Because of the ability to recognize and harness something of regularity, they were able to lay the foundations of their economy and their empire.

They were the first to unite what might otherwise be thought of as independent city states, and by doing so, impacted our own concept of what a nation should be.

Their model created the idea of a nation as a society with defined boundaries, currency, and government. The combination of those three elements allows an economic growth trajectory that is ultimately greater than the sum of its parts.

Architecture is the most famous legacy of the Egyptian culture. The Egyptians were the first to employ the use of architecture on a massive scale for purposes other than defense or shelter. Their use of architecture for religious and socio/political reasons has been monumental in the future evolution of all global cultures.

With regularity, they realized that stones make buildings, and buildings make cities, the cities make nations and nations make societies.

Because they saw how buildings could shape the way in which people interact with each other and their leadership, the Egyptians were the first to purposely plan and design buildings and cities for influencing the people of a nation.

Using the Egyptian idea of magic, which is to influence something by indirect means, architecture was the ultimate magic by which to influence society.

Many of the rituals of the masonic lodge were practiced in Ancient Egypt.
