We Are Where We Are

The portals of Sedona

Several years ago, I visited Lookout Mountain in Tennessee with my then teenage daughters.

Waiting in line at one of the attractions we saw a sign which said, “You are Here'”

We wondered out loud how “they” knew we were here. This was in the day before security cameras.

And then we wondered who “they” were.

As we travel through life, the experiences we encounter change us and if we let them, they change us for  the better. 

my life began at an early age, my parents bought a run down farm when I was three years old.  Originally, dad wanted to buy a different farm that was in better condition than the one we settled on. 

Dad’s uncle who was a banker, wouldn’t give dad the money for a farm dad wanted to buy. He said we couldn’t make any money there. In reality we could have make more money there than  at the farm my parents eventually settled.

The farm my parents bought was run down and the land was very poor. We barely raised enough corn the first year to replace the seed needed to plant the crop. To increase the fertility of the land, my parents began raising turkeys, not only were they sold a a good profit, their manure was high in nitrogen, rebuilding the fertility of soil very quickly. 

Years later, while visiting Arizona, we discovered in a past life we had once lived near Cottonwood as Anasazi Indians and were farmer/ gatherers. In those days, the American Indians would live in an area until all the game and fish were gone, the soil depleted then move on to greener pastures.  They did not, as many would have you believe care for the environment. They didn’t belong to the Sierra Club or PETA. 

Because my parents bought an old run down farm and brought it back to being a productive piece of land, they were able to repay a karmic debt, so dad’s uncle actually did him a favor, things always work out as they should. 

There is always plan to life , we are where we are, and where we need to be.

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.

Sedona Arizona: Boynton Canyon

Boynton Canyon is one of the major UFO sighting areas in Sedona. The vortex is located near this pinnacle and is extremely powerful.

The energy at this vortex strengthens the masculine/feminine or yin/yang balance.

The difference between religion and spirituality.

The Past Comes to Life at Tuzigoot, American Indian Village Near Cottonwood Arizona.

Written by Gary Wonning

There are times we may see something that would define a persons purpose in life and we don’t mention it because we don’t think  they would understand  it or think we may be ridiculed because we see something that seems impossible for mortal humans to see.

My parents purchased a extremely run down farm in 1947 when I was three years old. Life was challenging during those years and mom and dad struggled to revitalize the land and make it profitable.

Struggling with the normal vicissitudes of life, mated with the house burning down, there was little money, but there were a lot of fun and good times.

Thru it all , we survived and the farm once again became prosperous. Tiring of the hard work, we moved off the farm and sought an easier life in town.

Years later, while living in Sedona, my dad came to visit and during his time there, we visited many of the historic sites in the area.

Tuzigoot, Native American Indian village near Cottonwood AZ.

One of those sites was Tuzigoot and old Indian ruin near Cottonwood, Arizona. While standing at the top of this ancient village, I saw a vision of my family and many of my dad and mom’s friends working as American Indians in the valley which runs alongside of the Verde River. 

I understood the Indians normally farmed out the land until it became infertile and hunted and fished until all the wild game were gone, they would then move onto more fertile hunting and fishing grounds, leaving the land improvished. 

Mom and dad repaid a lot of karma when they bought that improvised farm and nurtured it back to become a very prosperous farmstead.

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

Many times the challenges we face in this life are a result of our actions in a previous existence. We all encounter this until we learn to rise above the karma of the past and learn to live a more positive life and realize everyone creates their own reality, and we have no need to feel guilty for the actions of the past, as long as we understand why those deeds were performed and we  truly forgive ourselves and others for past debauchery.

I never told dad what I had seen, later I realized the error of my ways and have pledged to always inform someone of anything of this nature that has been revealed to me, it is part of their spiritual evolvement and they need to know, even though they may think I’m crazy at the time. Photography Prints

The Aboriginal Dream Time and Spiritual Beliefs

Written by Gary Wonning

The Australian Aborigine has a long and interesting history. Their elders say the aborigines have been inhabiting Australia for over forty thousand years. During that time, they have developed a culture and a system of beliefs we could learn from today.

I have posted a few of their core values.

To the Aborigine, life was all about survival, we are taught a work ethic in order to improve our lot and to make a better life. The Aborigine knew no such thing, because of their extreme environment, their only focus was survival, they don’t understand and laugh at us for working so hard.

People say to them that it must be great to live off the land, their reply is “If people think it is so great, let them try it!”

Only the healthy babies were kept, they were suckled for seven years and if the mother couldn’t keep up with work and the child, the baby was killed.

Most tribes contained 20- 30 people , with 4-5 in each family, some lived to be 100 and some had more than one wife, if the man died or left, another male stepped in and took care of her.

It took about six acres of land to support one person, they survived by eating whatever was available, including termites, ants and grub worms. I actually ate a cooked grub worm, it wasn’t too bad!

There are many shapes and sizes of boomerangs which they used to hunt and kill food, everything from birds to kangaroos. The boomerang was designed to come back to it’s original location, that way if the prey was missed, the boomerang would return to the person who threw it, eliminating his need to run after it. I

n today’s world most Aborigines have lost the ability to make and throw boomerangs, many are becoming like us and we are becoming like them, in time we will all be the same.

If the tribe became too large and there wasn’t enough food, the weaker ones were either killed or left to die.

They would rub animal fat on their bodies to shut down sweating in order to conserve water. They still don’t wear many clothes because clothes create body odor in the heat.

In the dry years, women would not ovulate, they had 0 population growth, sometimes the droughts would last 10 years, so there would be no children born in that time. The lack of food and environmental stress ruined the sex drive.

When woman first felt kick of child, the first animal they saw was believed to be it’s totem or spirit animal, because that is the closest source of energy, it could be a snake, kangaroo or anything.

They believe that newspapers print only bad things, I guess I agree with that.

The earth was flat and void, spiritual beings created what they needed

Rock Art only has meaning to the author, it tells the story of some happening, corroboree, and the retelling of old stories, and creation, photograph carries the spirit of the soul, they wouldn’t allow anyone to photograph them, they felt by doing so, the spirit was stolen.

You can’t have a  can’t have creation without creator.

The rock art is a teaching aid, as is the red facial paintings, and costumes, 

Stories are a memory aid, their stories are laws on which aboriginal life is based, music is also a memory aid.

More to follow.
