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.

Everyone has Dragons To Destroy

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Written by Gary Wonning

We all have our demons or dragons to destroy.

Just like Don Quixote who set about destroying the windmills of Holland, we all have our own demons or windmills to destroy.

Each and everyone one of us comes into this world with a mission, and part of that mission is to overcome fear or dispel whatever karma we may be working on at the time.

Every challenge in life presents us with an opportunity to learn. We often erroneously think the challenges we face are someone else’s doing.

They aren’t.We each create our own destiny and learning experiences.

Although there may be a perpetrator, and someone we believe is doing us wrong, that act is something we created ourself to enable us to solve an issue and create an environment for us to move past some karma created by us in this lifetime or in the past.

After we get past the initial anger, the only thing left to do is to understand  what we can do about it and learn from it.

Those instances of perceived injustice can actually make us a better person, and I have found if I don’t learn from them, the actions get repeated until I do.

There isn’t anyway around them.

In today’s world with all the advancements in technology, life should be easier than it ever has been in the history of man, but people keep inventing new ways to make their life more difficult.

This just proves to me that humanity continuously needs new challenges  to grow intellectually, deep down inside, no one wants an easy way in life.

We need challenges to stimulate our minds and souls, the unhappiest people are often times the ones who life has handed them a silver spoon.

As a result, slaying our dragons should be one of our main objectives in life.

Many times we worry about someone else’s dragons and forget about our own.

There is only one person who can meet their own demons, no one else can do it for them.

We can help, but they have to do it themselves, we should always remember this.

That is why it is often said,”No good deed goes unpunished.” When we do too much and interfere with their karma, the universe will let us know in no uncertain terms.

People only want so much help, and to know that someone is thinking of them, then they can do what needs to be done, in their own way.

We have enough to think about taking care of our own issues, and only by solving our own problems can we help anyone else.

Who is God

Written by Gary Wonning

People have pondered from the beginning of time about the existence of God, and who he is and what it means to them. Everyone seems to come up with a different answer or theory, and many times their theory will change at different points in their life. 

God is often perceived as someone who floats around in an easy chair in heaven or the clouds. Others perceive him as an unforgiving entity who seeks judgment on us all. Others portray him as supreme intelligence or infinite energy. 

Some look at him as a forgiving God who will forgive us regardless of what we have done, or not done. Many times our perception is based on our life experience, or the beliefs we grew up with and was taught by someone influential in our lives.

Many just assume what they have been taught is true and never question it any further.

Regardless of what we have been taught, or the stage of evolution we are currently experiencing on the physical dimension, sooner or later we will all come to the same conclusion.

In the process, we learn that all paths are valid and our search will eventually lead us to the same understanding of God and the universe we live in. 

Through many lifetimes and the resultant learning we acquire because of it, we understand all of creation, and our purpose for existing on the physical plane. 

In the process, we come to understand who God is, and the relationship we have with him.

Regardless of the number of incarnations it may require, or the struggles and hardships on the way, sooner or later, we will all come to the same conclusion.

God is an intelligence and an infinite energy source with unlimited powers and abilities from the perspective of the physical plane, and of the limited, conscious, human mind. We and everything in the cosmos is a part of this energy, it is all-consuming.

You can perceive as human beings who God is only when you are able to access the spiritual world while still in the human flesh.

This can be accomplished through meditation, hypnosis or other methods of enlightenment. 

We are all part of God.

When we incarnate into physical form, our spirits are detached from this energy that we refer to as “Chi Energy,” and we forget our past and our connection with divine source, while in physical form, we need to reconnect with “Divine Source”

Whatever you call this supreme consciousness: God, Universe, Divine Creator, Chi Energy, Architect of the Universe, Source of Life Energy, Great Spirit, Creator, Brahman, Allah, Tao, it is one and the same.

Do We Chose To Reincarnate?

Written by Gary Wonning

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

No one tells you what to do, we each choose to incarnate when we want or need to, and in which life situation we choose. You can organize your life any way you desire.

Nothing is forced on you and you don’t need to go back immediately and you don’t ever need to reincarnate, but you advance more slowly spiritually if you don’t experience earth life. You can live your life with whomever you want, you can choose a challenging life or one of quiet contemplation.

You can come in with souls you have never met or with those you have lived many lives.

Some advanced souls come in only to help others advance spiritually, in doing so they lose some of their energy but gain it back once they enter into the spirit world. 

If you give, you receive back.

Newton’s Definition of God

 

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

a personal spiritual journey of self-discovery.

I’m not sure where I found this, but it is Newton’s definition of God.

The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being. And if the fixed stars are the centres of like systems, these, being formed by the like wise counsel, must be all subject to the dominion of one; especially since the light of the fixed stars is of the same nature with the light of the sun, and from every system light passes into all the other systems; and lest the systems of fixed stars should, by their gravity, fall on each other, he hath placed those systems at immense distances from one another. This being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord over all; and on account of his dominion he is wont to be called the Lord God or Universal Ruler, for God is a relative word, and has a respect to servants; and Deity is the dominion of God not over his own body, as those imagine who fancy God to be the soul of the world, but over servants. The Supreme Being is eternal, infinite, absolutely perfect, omnipotent and omniscient . . . We know him only by his most wise and excellent contrivances of things and final causes.34 Newton had provided another description which did not conflict with my views of what a God could be – eternal, infinite, absolutely perfect, omnipotent and omniscient, yet refraining from miraculous meddling with the laws of physics. My Supreme Being was confirmed as Guardian of the Laws of Physics.

Egyptian Pharaoh: Ramses 11

Mysterious Egypt, land of a thousand years

Ancient Memphis was founded in 2925 BCE by King Menes and was long known as the capital of Egypt and as such was the home to many of the early pharaohs including Ramses II.

Ramses II is generally believed to have been the Pharaoh during the Exodus, and as a consequence, many artifacts from Ramses time still adorn the countryside. Ramses II, powerful and ambitious, was the third ruler of the 19th dynasty.

Know thyself

 

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

a personal spiritual journey about learning Thy Self.

Author unknown

To Know Thy Self be prepared to face down your fear of being taught to know “myself”.

But you have to know “myself” before you could learn about your place in the cosmos and your part in the immutable laws which run it.

To know “myself” you have to think about ‘life, the universe, and everything’.
