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.

The Two Pillars Of Humanity

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

Consequently, in order to appease the Romans. Jesus, King of the Jews, who was a political rebel, was crucified on the cross.

According to some, Jesus Barabbas was the Son of God,  the Romans set  him free.

If there were two men named Jesus, it would solidify the duality of life and allude to the two pillars of life, a belief that has descended through the ages.

There were many claimants of the title messiah at that period in time, and two different sects may have each had their own messiah. The meaning of messiah was defined as someone destined to become king, once you made king status, you were no longer a messiah, you were the king.

Tradition held that there would be two messiahs, to work hand in hand to achieve the final victory of Yahweh and achieve victory for his chosen people. This aligns with the twin flame concept which alludes to the theory that at creation, each soul split into two separate entities, each going its own way, learning and growing on its own in order for the soul to learn separateness from its own self and to learn more quickly than if it was just one entity.

These two represented the two pillars of civilization, the pillar of an earthly king and the pillar of a heavenly king, the two must work hand in hand to form a more perfect union.

A society or culture to continue and flourish must contain the two pillars of government, the political pillar and Godly pillar, and they must work hand in hand.  A country cannot remain strong and free without the hand of God guiding it. 

As we have seen, the two pillars hold a significant position in the civilization of mankind, signifying several different things in various cultures and religious belief systems, such as good/evil, male/female, night/day, darkness/light, etc.

 

Even a successful marriage enlists the concept of the two pillars,  The male presides over the family and the female presides over the home, thereby forming a perfect union.  

The longing for the soul to once again reunite into one is the cause of much conflict in the world as each half continuously tries to find itself. Many go into and out of relationships looking for that special “one”. 

In reality, we are each that special one, we are each two halves of the whole residing in one body.

We are looking for the divinity in ourselves, once we find that the search for our twin is complete.

Why do We Incarnate Into Poor Underpriviledged Lifetimes?

Photography Prints

 

Written by Gary Wonning

There are many reasons why souls decide to incarnate into poor underprivileged lifetimes. 

Understanding this concept is a big hangup for many when they begin to try and understand the theory of reincarnation.  It is often difficult for humans to understand why they would choose such a lifetime  when there are many ways to enjoy an easier less complicated existence on earth. 

They can’t fathom doing something like that to themselves, so they immediately put the burden on God, thereby releasing themselves from any responsibility of the current situation. 

By taking such a position, they immediately nullify any learning they would have had from the life lessons they came to learn, and by doing so it opens themselves up to the possibility of having to do it all over again. These lessons don’t go away until we understand  them fully, regardless of how many lifetimes it takes.

It’s better to learn the lesson the first time it is presented rather to create the need to relearn it many times over.  By learning  during the first incarnation, we are then free to go on to the next life course and continue our evolution. 

If we choose our destiny and the life we incarnate into , why would we choose a lifetime of hardship ? Why wouldn’t we just choose a lifetime of opulence and ease, living a lifestyle admired by everyone instead of one of extreme hardship, poverty, disease and struggle?

Often times, we choose such an existence because we have been unkind to those in such life situations in a previous life, and we have come back to rectify what we did and make amends to those we have offended. 

We all need to live such lives to be able to understand the whole of creation, we simply are unable to understand a certain life situation unless we live it, it just can’t be explained to us. 

Those lifetimes are the times we learn compassion and humility and are often deemed our most valuable lifetimes, the times when we learn and evolve the most. There are no wasted lifetimes, even though we may think so at the time. We can often learn  more by existing in the most humble stations of life than we sometimes learn being an important dignitary on the world scene. 

 

Often times, our first incarnation on earth will be in such a station in life, it is the souls way of gradually adapting to life on earth, and maybe even possibly getting some of the hard lessons out of the way early in their earthly travels. 

The reasons we all incarnate in these lifetimes are many and varied. The more we inquire and study our past, the more we can learn and control our future.

Living Your Dreams Instead of Your Fears

Written by Gary Wonning

Too many people today are not living their dreams because they are living their fears.

The twenty-four hour news cycle is continuously filling our living rooms with negative news stories, often times blown up out of proportion and filled with half truths. 

As a result, people are continuously living in fear of what may happen instead of accomplishing something positive in their lives. 

People are in constant fear of what may or may not happen. 

In many instances, the same kind of events we are see occurring around the world have been happening for hundreds of years.  The only difference is, we hear about them instantly instead of as in the past, when we often never were informed of them because of the distances involved.

Years ago, if we lived on the east coast of the United States, we never heard about what was going on in California, unless it was a total disaster such as an earthquake, and then it may have been days before the news reached us.

Today, the news reaches us instantly and the main stream media does it’s best to politicize it. It is to their advantage to do this because it increases their ratings and sells advertising. 

We need to start living our lives again, the politicians will fight it out and eventually devour themselves and those around them. In reality, besides writing our congressman, who may or may not even listen to us, the only way to effect change in our country is to make our voices heard at the ballot box.

We need to once in start living our dreams, in America, we are in control of our lives and our destiny, unlike most other places in the world.  

We have lost the spiritual values that were instilled in our country at the beginning. 

Study  what the founders and heroes of the American Revolution faced. many times they faced death or serious injury, but they survived and as a result, created the greatest country the world has ever know. 

Many times the only positive in their lives was their faith.

By controlling our destiny and life, we can create the kind of reality we all strive for.

By being responsible for our own life, being independent and as self sufficient as we can, not relying on government to run our life, we will create the type of country our founders had in mind.

We do create our future, and when we do, the negativity and distention in life has no one to latch onto and will disappear into the sunset.

Once we accomplish that, anything is possible. 

Let us go forth, have faith in something larger than ourselves, by accomplishing this small feat,  we can accomplish much.

What do you think?

By learning and remembering the Wisdom of Our Ancestors, we can accomplish much.

The Tree of Life

Written by Gary Wonning

What does the Tree of Life look like?

Several years ago while attending the funeral of a friends father, I began walking back to the van we all arrived in.

As I walked back to the parking lot, I sensed I had entered another time and reality. As a friend and I walked shoulder to shoulder we entered another world, It was a barren world and seemed as if it was where we came from before living on earth. 

Continuing on , we passed a scraggly old locust tree, which to me symbolized the Tree of Life.  Through the years that image has continuously returned into my thoughts.

Looking back, that image has undoubtedly lead to much of my self discovery into the spiritual world and the meaning of life.

Even though I had read the bible a couple of times, I never realized there were two trees in the Garden of Eden, the Tree of Knowledge, or good and evil, and the Tree of Life. 

Only years later when I was lead to study the Kabbalah did I come to vaguely understand what the Tree of Life was all about.

The Tree of Life explains the ten attributes of God, the foundation of all life and the principles we all need to live by. 

Many belief that when we pass from this earthly existence, we return to God and the Tree of Life.  Some have described the tree of life as being an extremely bright illuminated willow like tree with energy pulses traveling through its branches.The tree is described as being white with sparkling branches, it could be compared to a Christmas Tree. 

The tree is in an immense valley with beautiful hills and green grass.  Nearby is a waterfall and a river, and beds of beautiful flowers surround the Tree.

The Tree isn’t a tree like on earth, it is composed of light, veins of light that seem to go on forever.  The veins go on forever and are intertwined and life is streaming through them like the blood streams through our own body. Each of the millions of little lights is equivalent to a life, or soul.

We each return to the Tree of Life upon our passing from earthly existence to give our soul an opportunity to access it’s recent life, contemplate what it has learned and to decide with the guides that are there what the next best possible course of action is for our particular soul to continue it’s learning and advance to a higher state of consciousness.

The Purpose of Life on Earth

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

Written by Gary Wonning

What is the purpose of life on Earth?

Why do we incarnate on this planet?

These are questions each and everyone of us has asked at least once during our existence on planet earth.

Why are we here?

There has to be more to it than just growing up, getting a job, growing old and dying.

What would be the purpose of it if  that was all there was to life.

It was a question I asked many years ago and it began a personal search for answers.

Through it all, I found my answers, they may not be someone else’s answers, but the search satisfied my yearnings.

There are many reasons we incarnate on earth,  and each satisfies the personal yearnings of our soul. This yearning enables us to grow and evolve into higher realms of spirituality.

We, or our soul is energy, energy that transforms into a physical body when we incarnate.

As we grow energetically, we learn to help others to enable them to also grow spiritually and reach their highest potential.

We are spiritual beings that have a physical body. The way we grow is to increase our energy, our energy nourishes itself with other energy, in other words, we energize ourselves by connecting with divine source.

How do we increase our energy? We don’t just grab it out of the air without doing anything.

We increase our energy by collecting love and positive feelings while in the physical body and by living and experiencing life.

The more we rise above the conflicts of life and succeed to gather positive thoughts in spite of the goings on around us, the more positive energy we create, we then offer these positive vibes to others thereby giving them the opportunity to become more positive in the process.

By offering our positive vibes to the universe, we are subconsciously opening new pathways to new lives and experiences for others, if they are willing to accept them.

By providing this opportunity to others, we are actually creating new lives, just as a mother gives birth to a new soul.

Many religions around the world believe as we each evolve and advance spiritually, we create new universes and live future lives on other planets, teaching others who may come the wonders of the universe and thus enabling them to learn the universal knowledge of the universe.

It is a continuous cycle, and goes a long way to explain where we  humans came from before planet earth was inhabited by the homo sapiens.

The Knights Templars and the Qumran

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

The most important connection between the Qumran Essenes, the Knights Templars and the Freemasonry is they all focused on the rebuilding of King Solomon’s Temple.

Soon they were given a constitution by the church and became an official organization within the church, they were then given the right to wear their own mantles, which were pure white, and they were then not only knights, but monks as well.

Not only needing funds but extra workers as well, they were then forced to take in new recruits, The new recruits were probationary for the first year, had to be of noble birth, born in wedlock, and be free of any vow, much like the vows of masonry today.

Another similarity of masonic practice, sheepskin was the only allowed form of decoration. They were required to wear sheepskin breeches beneath their outer garments.

It was to be a symbol of innocence and chastity. The sheepskin was never removed, not even for bathing.
