We Create Our Own Hell On Earth

 

Written by Gary Wonning

In many books and teachings, you are told that Earth is the most hellish planet in the universe, esoteric teachings teach us that many other planets have a much more  severe climate for learning than on planet earth. 

All religions, beliefs and cultures have their own definition of heaven and hell.  

For most, how one acts in this incarnation determines whether we go to heaven or hell when we leave this earthly existence. 

Either existence only becomes a reality after we pass on. 

While this is true to some extent and most believe some heavenly being determines which direction we go. It is entirely our  decision  how we spend eternity. 

We must be reminded, we all have free will and because of this, we all determine our life and destiny.  It is our decision, the creator grants us what we desire based on what we need to experience and our determination to advance our soul towards the next step in it’s growth. 

Our actions and thoughts in this moment of time creates our future, not only in a future life, but in this life also.  We create our own heaven and hell, or what our perspective of what those two different realities would be. 

Many times our definition of heaven would be hell for someone else, and our definition of hell would be heaven for many others. That is for the individual soul to determine based entirely on the lessons needed to be learned in this earthly existence.

One example would be the mate and people we choose to spend our lives with,  one persons dream mate would be a nightmare for someone else. 

A dream occupation for one, would be something another wouldn’t do if their life depended on it. It’s a matter of personal choice, depending on our life mission. 

Our challenges are what we make them, once we accept that, the challenges fade away and we are able to lead a happier productive life.

Communicating With Friends Through Our Dreams

 

Many times we visualize  friends in our dreams.

I’ve come to find this often occurs when we are about to make an important decision, either consciously or subconsciously.

Our Super Conscious is aware of events coming our way often before we become aware of them on a conscious level and it warns us in advance if we are able to interpret the message.

I have come to discover I often dream of friends, especially female friends when some important decision needs to be made. I feel that most often female friends come into play because I need the female energies to balance my energies to level the field  and to make a rational well balanced decision.

Often times, I also communicate with friends telepathically when it is impossible to reach them on a conscious level, for whatever the reason may be, whether they are physically too far away or other factors come into play.

One particular circumstance came into play just a couple of nights ago.

I met this particular friend early in life and we have remained friends ever since. I have felt extremely close to her even though we never dated or had any kind of close physical relationship, no one ever replaced the feelings I have had for her over the years. She is extremely religious and in spite of that , we have never  talked of our beliefs.

Recently I began to wonder how she would feel about my changing spiritual values and if she would on some level agree with them. Her thoughts and opinions have always been important to me. 

Two nights ago, my whole sleep time, it seems was devoted to seeing her.  In the most vivid dream, we were swimming, along with several other people, in a pool of water waist deep, and we were very content and happy.

To me this symbolizes that we agree  on many things spiritually and it seems as though we are both moving in the same direction.

We Learn Life Lessons From the People Who Come Into Our Lives

 

Written by Gary Wonning

One of the hot topics in today’s culture is bullying. 

It can be a real issue for those, especially the young , who are affected by this. It can be a very traumatic experience for those who are victimized. 

The only problem is, there are no victims in life, only participants. These so called bullies come into our lives for a reason. All we need to do is to discover the reason we are being taken advantage of, and take appropriate action to resolve the issue to our advantage and improve our lives in the process. 

Sometimes the solution is a physical solution and we need to deal with it physically to teach the person a lesson he or she will remember for time immemorial. 

But most often, it doesn’t need to end this way. 

On a more subconscious level, the bully is trying to teach us a lesson, once  that is discovered, many times we can view that soul as someone who really made our life better by teaching us to become more self reliant, or guide us on a path of greater creativity.

If we go within, many times we will discover talents we never knew we had, sometimes these talents would never be discovered  unless we are shunned by others and the only friend we have is ourself and God. Once we do some soul searching we discover many things about ourself we never knew existed. 

We all have potential beyond our wildest dreams, but until we are forced to discover them, they go unnoticed. Only when an event outside ourselves creates an environment where we go must go within to find hidden strength, do we discover what we are really capable of accomplishing. 

Suppose you have the ability to become a great actor of singer, but because you are shy you never even think you could become what you dream. 

By suppressing your dream, you become even more shy by denying what your real character is, the more you talk yourself out of your dream, the more shy and unhappy you become until you are just  downright miserable. 

You would never get out of this vicious cycle if someone or something didn’t come along and rock your boat. 

Because, on some level of consciousness, we all create everything we experience, your subconscious mind, or higher self, (what many refer to as our Christ Consciousness) springs into action and begins the search for an answer to make you a better person and enable you to accomplish your life mission. 

Here comes the bully, who has volunteered his time to help you. Sooner or later, his actions, or the actions of another soul if he should fail, will wake you to the reality of life, be it this lifetime or the next. It is your choice. 

By his actions and yours, you are both evolving into a higher understanding of life. 

Many believe the philosophy that we, each and everyone of us create our own reality, but when the going gets tough their belief falters just when it is imperative they stand strong for their beliefs. 

This is the time one needs to do some serious contemplative thinking and look within and ask ourselves why we allowed this to happen to us.

When we do we will receive the answer and by owning up to the responsibility of creating our reality, we can overcome this obstacle and go on to lead the life we want and desire. 

No one can do this for us, not our parents, family, the government or any one else, it is for us to do and for us alone. 

It is only then that we can be proud of what we have overcome, and thank those who have aided us in our journey.

Free Will and Reality

Sometimes life isn’t what you think.

Journey to enlightenment

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

Written by Gary Wonning

A group of us were having a friendly discussion last evening when the subject of free will and  when bad things happen to good people came up. 

Most in the group agreed that we are in charge of our lives and can choose the type of life to lead, and if some so called negative event does happen, we can change it into something good, thus we all have free will. 

However, when I mentioned that by having free will, we choose everything that we encounter on some level of consciousness, most couldn’t fathom holding themselves accountable for such misfortune. Some blamed God, or a couple only had for an explanation that sometimes S— happens. 

The statement was met with shock and dismay, how could I suggest something this extreme. I wan’t surprised, that is the reaction I most encounter when making this statement. 

S— doesn’t just happen, there is a reason for everything, there are no coincidences.  The universe doesn’t work that way, or the God we all know and love. 

Even though many of us believe in free will, and the ability to live the life we desire, for most there are limits as to how far they are willing to push the envelope. It is really difficult to believe that we would individually be  responsible for our own misfortune. 

Many times these are the same souls that blame God for  misfortune right after stating the individual has free will and they are in charge of their own life.

News flash, you can’t have it both ways, either we have free will or we don’t , it isn’t multiple choice. 

We come into this life to evolve spiritually and learn lessons that will contribute to our spiritual advancement. We map out a life plan with the consul of others in the spirit world. This life plan is a rough draft of what we volunteer to encounter in life and is subject to change by all souls involved. 

Having said this, and realizing how difficult it is for us mere humans to comprehend creating hardship for ourselves; living on school house earth, many lessens we learn are difficult and hard to understand.

But those difficult lessons are the most rewarding once we completely understand why we had to endure them.  

We and the other souls who volunteer for this life lesson are all here to learn and gain knowledge and understanding of the earth existence.  Those that help us create and sometimes give their own life to make it happen, understand this scenario and volunteer to help us in our learning, they also learn much by the experience, their evolvement is magnified by sacrificing for others and are often times settling karma in the process. 

Once the lesson is comprehended and we totally understand we do create our own reality, and it is us and us alone who can change it, it releases a lot of power to the soul. 

Once we come to terms that it is our doing and our responsibility, we own it, it is then we realize that we own it and we are the only one who can do anything to change our reality and create the life we desire, it is up to us and no one an stand in our way.

At that moment, we are free of karma.  

That is powerful!

America Has Lost Her Way

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Regardless of how much effort we put into following  our life path, we occasionally lose our way.

Events and circumstances occur that can change our direction immediately. When this happens it can create an environment where we begin to question everything we think we know,  as a result, we can lose our way until a new path and way of life  is discovered.

It is the natural order of things. These are the times when our faith will carry us through, regardless of what we may experience, the in-grown values each of us have will eventually shine through and lead us back to our path.

As cultures and values change, we change also. The Australian Aborigines are a prime example. Once a nomadic tribe , they roamed the out back of Australia and became very much in tune with nature and the environment around them. They  became very astute at being able to foretell coming events and adapting to a way of life consistent to their surroundings.

With the coming of the Europeans, they now must adapt to a new way of life, which after living for 40,000 years under a gum tree  is very difficult to do.

In many ways the life they had was more fulfilling than the way of  life they now have. As a result of the cultural shift, many are now resorting to drugs and alcohol as a respite from their daily life. Many have forgotten the teachings of their fathers, and not being able for a variety of reasons to assimilate into modern day culture, they are floundering aimlessly through life.

Hopefully one day they will regain their sense of well being and begin to assimilate into modern society while sharing their  their spirituality with us.

We in  the modern day world, with all the advances in technology, have spiritually lost our way also. It has become apparent there is a great spiritual void in today’s world, evidenced by the discontent and disconnect from society. With all the modern technology and conveniences in today’s world we should be the happiest people to ever inhabit our planet.

Regretfully this isn’t true, modern man has placed too much emphasis on things and not enough on the more important aspects of our lives. Many have forgotten the value of friendships and most of all their connection to their creator, the Grand Architect of the  Universe. The one who is responsible for all we have.

This connection needs to be re-established before it is too late, we have advanced technology  to be able to have more time to enjoy our relationship with each other, not to take away from it. Technical advances are well and good, I don’t think anyone really wants to live in a Tepee any more, or suffer the many diseases of the past. However, there needs to be a balance.

Modern day society needs the inherent knowledge the aborigines and other native tribes have. If we don’t somehow find that balance we will all suffer the consequences, and I don’t think anyone  wants that. They hold the keys to our future.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could combine their knowledge of the spiritual world with our technology?

The Difference Between the Soul and the Spirit

Meeting your twin flame at The Tree of Life

Written by Gary Wonning

Many people confuse the soul and the spirit. What is the difference, if any?

Technically, the soul and the spirit are the same energy, they just reside in different dimensions. 

The dimension the energy finds itself in determines whether it is the soul or the spirit.  The soul is that which dwells in every human being during it’s physical existence, when the soul passes from the human body through the light, it becomes the spirit.

The memories of past lives are stored in the spirit, so when a spirit enters human existence most of what the spirit remembers is lost to the soul. The memories remain in the spirit world and only occasionally do the memories flood through to the physical plane. 

When they do , it is to enlighten the individual and is a reminder it is time to delve into the souls past and relearn lessons taught during a previous time. 

The Akashic Records, the memories of the spirit, can only be accessed from spirit, and these live records of the universe’s existence are available to anyone who enters the spirit realm. 

These records are most often accessed by going into meditation and hypnosis, but many times our Christ Consciousness will allow spirit to cross the boundary between the physical world and the spirit world to give us a hint of the existence of the land beyond time, prodding us to investigate further the realities of other dimensions in time.

Where are the Parents?

Sell Art Online

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.

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