There Are No Victims, Only Creators

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Throughout history, many people have always looked at themselves as victims, falling prey to those who are in authority over them.

This false belief has continuously put many souls on the continuous cycle of reincarnation and karma, learning the same lessons over and over again until it finally sinks in that they really aren’t victims, they just keep doing the same things over and over again to create the same circumstances until they finally learn the lesson.

As long you keep doing the same things over and over, you are going to get the same results.

Once we take on a new perspective and develop a more positive attitude and become willing to learn from our so-called mistakes, our lives change.

Our lives instantly begin to reflect the shift toward positivity. We learn our conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and definitions can be our best friends or our worst enemies. As Buddha once said, “Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.”

It is a concept many  people have trouble understanding and accepting. It comes from placing our faith in an outside source,  the lack of faith in oneself, and from not understanding who we really are.

Whatever we see from our human perspective is only a small portion of truth. We would save ourselves a lot of grief to have more confidence in the wisdom of our higher self, our eternal consciousness, and its connection to the God Source.

Regardless of how bad or tragic a situation might appear from our human perspective, it can lead to spiritual growth, we actually create those circumstances in our life  to grow. In fact, specifically what is happening isn’t as important as how we feel about what is happening, because our feelings determine our vibrational path.

As Buddha said, “Pain is certain, suffering is optional.”

We learn through adversity, as much as we dislike the so-called negative events in our life, those are the times we experience the most soul growth and fulfillment.

If you never experience negativity, you will never know or appreciate the positive times in your life. That is one of the main reasons to reincarnate, there is no negativity in the spirit world when we go Home, or to heaven.

In Heaven, there is only Eternal Bliss. Eternal Bliss in wonderful, but we can never grow by only having Eternal Bliss in our life. Our soul needs challenges and so-called negative circumstances to reach it’s highest potential.

Thus we are not victims, we are only fulfilling the mission we came to earth to accomplish.

The adverse conditions we all face are actually blessings in disguise.

Ancient Egypt and the Morning Star Venus

Written by Gary Wonning

The Masonic Influence on World History

As time passes more and more is being discovered concerning the ancient craft of Masonry.

The ancients based much of their knowledge and beliefs on astronomy, in particular, Orion, the star Sirius, and the planet Venus.

Even the giant pyramid of Cheops, located on the Egyptian plain, high above Cairo, was constructed in the very same pattern as the three stars in Orion’s belt and certain air chambers in the pyramid point to Venus as it would have been positioned in the sky in earlier times.

The Egyptian hieroglyph for the morning star was the same five-pointed star used to represent the five points of Masonic fellowship in the third degree.

Albert Pike: Moral Truths

The Masonic Influence on World History

The great Masonic philosopher/writer Albert Pike once said:

Moral Truths are absolute, like the principles of Geometry. The permanent real truths said Pythagoras were the laws and constancies perceived or discovered through study and reason. In contrast, said Aristotle, virtue is but the habit or practice of doing the right thing, once it is discovered.

Truth exists, it is for us to discover whether through reason, practice or both.

Alert Pike: Proper Conduct

The Masonic Influence on World History

Albert Pike; Masonic writer and philoso[pher on proper conduct.

Our impulse is to pursue right conduct, and morality is divinely inspired and originates from Above. This impulse or Inspiration compels us to right conduct and warns us against guilt: right conduct springs out of the nature of things.

Et’s and God; Receiving Guidance

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

a life changing personal spiritual journey

 

It can get confusing, how do we know if it is God that speaks to us, angels, demons, our higher self or extraterrestrials?

The universe is a crowded place. With all the entities floating around out there and all of the alternate and parallel universes , how can we keep it all straight and actually know who is trying to communicate with us?

I believe the best way is to trust our gut and heart.

If the message is positive and “feels” good. it is probably from a friendly source.

If there is negativity, makes you nervous or skirmish and or causes harm to yourself or someone, ignore it.

Give it some thought, if it is going to have a positive impact on your life or others, regardless of the obstacles you will encounter, or the life lessons learned, go for it.

Equality For All

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Both sides of the race issue have to realize this.

“Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.” – – Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia – Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War.

We Have Created Our Reality

 

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Many dispute the fact that we humans create the reality we live in, most just shrug their shoulders and attribute everything that they experience as fate and search no further for answers.

Look around you, look at the current condition of the world, all the violence, the corruption, warfare, discontent, where did that come from? Did it just happen?

The world has always been a pretty cruel place, but it is an awfully beautiful planet as well. There have always been negative events in the world, but in this day and age, things are different. 

People condone bad behavior, it is accepted and no one judges or has an opinion.  This has lead to a general downfall of morals and values, and we have abandoned God.

What have we, as a country been thinking the last sixty years?

We wonder where God is, and how could he let these things happen to a righteous people?

Many look to an outside force for the cure to our ills, but the simple fact is, as a nation, we have become unrighteous., we no longer believe or try to uphold the values that this country was founded on and made us great.

Many discount any reference to people being able to create their reality, they believe it is all up to God.

Things go wrong and they ask,”Where is God?”

God was taken from the equation.

What has our thinking been the last several decades, where have our thoughts been?

Most have forgotten about what is important in life, worrying more about if they can afford the latest smartphone than they are about doing the right thing, or raising their kids in a good environment, teaching them good values and trying to lead them down the correct path in life.

As a nation, our values and ethics have gone down the toilet. If you casually mention how people thought or believed sixty years ago, you are looked at and scorned as if you came from a different planet.

A football player is ridiculed for praying on the field of battle while others are praised for disrespecting the American flag.

The democratic party booed God at their national convention in 2012, and we have kicked him out of the public arena.

Mass shootings are common in this era, all sorts of unnatural behavior is condoned and encouraged, and we wonder what happened.

We created our own reality.

A man reaps what he sows.
