We Can Only Determine the Future By Discovering From Whence We Came.

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Many think we should never look back, when we do someone will immediately tell us we are living in the past. 

We can look back into our past for any number of reasons, and doing so doesn’t mean we are dwelling there, we are just recalling memories, often times these memories can have a positive result on our lives. 

Many times life’s puzzles can only be solved by looking into the past which enables us to find a reference as to where we are headed or which path we should take. 

We need to connect the dots, and the dots cannot be connected by looking forward, the dots are in the past. 

You need to trust the dots from the past will connect you to the dots in the future.

By learning to trust in something, your gut, life, destiny, karma, whatever it is that connects you with the God Force, then you will once again be directed to the path you are destined to assume. 

Sometimes we need to look backward to see forward.

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?

Listen to Spirit, Spirit Knows Best

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Several years ago, after living in Sedona Arizona for several years, we realized it was time to move on to another location. Sedona is an area that is extremely beautiful and abounds in spiritual energy, one of the most sacred places on earth. 

However, many people come here to live and after a few years decide that they have adsorbed as much of the local energy as they can for a while and it is time to move on and apply what they have learned while living there.  

My wife and I had reached that point and decided it was time to go on to the next adventure. 

I wanted to stay in the southwest, I liked the desert and my wife wanted to move to Florida. I never really liked Florida, the only time I had ever been there was in the summer, and summer isn’t the idea time to be in Florida. 

We decided to look around the southwest, first in Phoenix which was entirely too hot, Las Vegas, which seemed like a town with only one type of entertainment, and finally San Diego.

The first trip to San Diego everything looked great, the weather was nice, I liked the mountains and it was close to the ocean.

It was at about this time I started getting messages from spirit that California would not be the best place  for us to move to , I continuously ignored the message, I really wanted to stay in the southwest and did not want to move to Florida. 

Finally, our house sold, or at least we thought it sold. 

We had an offer, but they wanted to take possession in less than three weeks, we hurriedly started making plans and packing, I gave notice to my employer that I was quitting in three weeks and would be moving. 

Then we made plans to fly to San Diego and look for a home . 

We were having a garage sale on Thursday and Friday and then flying to San Diego on Saturday.  

As the garage sale was closing down on Friday, and our packing was done, with just two plates and glasses, and knives and forks for us to use, we prepared to move. 

As I was closing the sale, our Realtor drove into the driveway with a horrible look on her face. The deal had fallen through. 

I was fit enough to be boiled down for glue.

Still, ignoring the promptings from spirit, I was more determined than ever to complete my mission. 

We flew to San Diego the next morning intent on finding our new home. 

Things didn’t go so well this time. Events were just not adding up. 

During lunch, on Mission Beach, someone gave us a bag of pot, right at our dining table, and I noticed that every time we boarded the trolley, people were smoking pot , not the environment I want to live in on a daily basis. 

The property values were over the top, and the places we found were extremely small.

We finally found a small apartment that we could afford in Carlsbad, several miles from San Diego. 

Arriving back in Sedona, life was extremely difficult for the next couple of months, having quit my job and all of our furniture was packed, we refused to unpack and settle back in to our life. 

We finally decided to move to Florida instead, and did so a couple of months later.  

It was a very trying experience and it took over a year to sell our house, we finally sold it on a land contract, which also turned out to be a disaster. 

This would all have been avoided if I had just listened to spirit. 

I still like the desert southwest, but our time had come and gone.

I’m doing my beast to now listen to what spirit tells me to do. 

And Florida is beautiful also, and it’s where I need to be.

Sedona and the American Indians

The portals of Sedona, a land of mystery and intrigue

Written by Gary Wonning

The Native American Indians never lived in the Sedona area, even in the earliest of times. Sedona was believed a magical area, they only came to worship and come closer to their creator. They believed the spirits of their ancestors, as well as those of animals no longer seen in the third dimension, resided in the red rocks, thus it was believed to be a place of great spiritual significance, a sanctuary where one only visits but doesn’t live.

Fear leads Us To Socialism

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Written by Gary Wonning

In the United States, our country was founded on the idea of personal freedom and a rugged individualism. Many brave souls have fought and died so that we might enjoy the many freedoms we have.

Unfortunately,  over the years, many of those freedoms have evaporated right before our eyes.

There are many reasons for this but the most obvious to those who are paying attention is our natural desire to be taken care of and have someone else become responsible for our lives.  It seems much easier than being responsible for our lives, this and an underlying fear that we don’t have the knowledge to survive on our own.

Sell Art Online

This fear is often brought on by parents not teaching their kids survival and coping skills. When children are raised with someone providing every basic need, being protected from every conceivable danger,  with no fear of consequences if they fail or do something wrong, how do you think they are going to act when they grow up?

It is a natural response after a few generations of improving our lifestyle. People become lax and in a sense lazy, they seem to think that it is easier to let the government provide for their every want and need, by giving others responsibility for their health and welfare, the individual is freed up to enjoy more pleasurable pursuits, such as watching mindless TV, video games or enjoying their favorite beverage at the local pub.

Soon people lose all sense of responsibility and personal welfare, thinking government will have their personal interests in mind as they listen to and believe every politician promise to look after them and give them everything free they could possibly ever want or need.

The general populace soon forgets that politicians only have one thing in mind, the only thing they are really good at, getting reelected, and forgetting they will say or do anything they need to accomplish that end and continue to live on the gravy train they have provided for themselves.

Soon citizens have become slaves to the government, depending on it for their very livelihood.  They have lost all desire to be free and independent, and don’t even realize what has happened.

It happened so slowly, it was like putting a frog in a pan of warm water and slowly turning up the heat. The frog will soon die, not realizing that the temperature of the water was increased until the frog could no longer survive.

During this process, many have lost sight of the idea of being independent,  constantly being fed by twenty-four-hour news all the horrors of living, the constant commercials describing every disease one could possibly conceive, slowly people become fearful of everything that could possibly harm them, they soon lose faith  in their own abilities to ward off danger and disease.

As the fear increases, so does their dependence on government and the medical field to protect them from all the dangers of life.

Thye have forgotten every value, moral and ethical principle their country was founded on. The foundation of a once great nation is gone.

They become totally paranoid, thinking they could die from something terrible at any minute, losing all sense of reason and common sense in the process, then it is just a short small step to becoming totally dependent on government and allowing socialism to totally take over civilization, they have become slaves to the very government that originally set them free.

Sedona: Hypnosis In Boynton Canyon

The portals of Sedona, discover new avenues of learning

Writtten by Gary Wonning

After leaving there, we went to Boynton Canyon, the major UFO landing site; we climbed to the top of the mountain and prepared for hypnosis.

She informed us we would be contacting animal spirits, UFO spirits, and Indian spirits.

She said that the wind is normally calm and quiet on this mountain, but when a spirit was “called” in; we would feel a strong gust of cool wind.

I found this to be true, but it was a slight of an under-exaggeration, the “gentle” breeze nearly blew me off the mountain.

I had a very intense session that morning, so I didn’t really receive much information, I seemed to be brain dead, and so I asked Deer to channel it for me.

What Deer channeled and wrote down I consider very accurate concerning my mission. Whom I will be working with and, they answered many questions I had never discussed with anyone.

The Future Is Now

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Written by Gary Wonning

I remember standing out in my front yard as a child one evening, I was probably about five or six years old.

At the time I lived in southern Indiana and looking towards the east, I saw Washington D.C. going up in flames. I hardly knew what Washington D.C. was, I had heard it was our nation’s capital, but being as young as I was I didn’t realize what the city stood for.

I just knew our government was in trouble and it seemed as if it was a few years after the turn of the 21st century. It seemed to be really troubling times.

This was about 1950, so it seemed really far off, and I pretty much forgot about it.

Several years later, in the late 80s, I had an opportunity to speak with a very knowledgeable and intuitive lady. Someone who should have been famous, but wasn’t.

She gave me the same information about the coming turmoil, repeating what I had heard in my youth.

I listened to what she had said, but it never really registered how bad it could get, we had just survived the protests of the sixties, how much worse could it be?

She said there would be much rioting and discontent, but it would be confined to the major cities and if we stayed out of them we would be fine.

She said the problems would come from the way the majority of our children had been raised after the sixties, the permissiveness and lack of control many parents had over their kids, and the way American society had forgotten what had made us great.

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Soon after that, I went to a motivational seminar, where Zig Ziglar was speaking, he said the same things, I still didn’t heed the warnings.

Most of us were raised in a different world, we were busier than a one-armed monkey at a flea festival. We raised our kids in that world, but somehow things changed and people forgot or didn’t think it was important to remember any more.

This is how most cultures decline and finally disappear, being taken over by a more barbaric society, until they no longer exist.

I took it with a grain of salt and went about my way as many others had done who had heard the same warnings, after all, our parents and grandparents had been saying the same thing for years, the world was going to hell in a handbasket.

Soon it was the turn of the century, and suddenly, the things I had seen and was told about began coming true.

It seemed chaos was everywhere, no self-control or discipline, no respect for the law, or others, profanity, everything that was right was wrong, and everything that was wrong was right.

Bad behavior became condoned and accepted, anyone who disagreed and remembered the values taught them at a younger age, were condemned and ridiculed.

Suddenly changing things back seemed about as difficult as scratching your ear with your elbow.

The world had been turned upside down, and all the problems of the world somehow seemed to be the fault of the United States.

You hear constantly on the media and from some politicians how horrible a place the United States is, how cruel we are to minorities, the disabled, etc.

I found during my travels, this is not the way the average person across the globe feels, that is only media and political rhetoric, designed to sell ads and garner votes by pandering to humanity’s basic trait, fear.

While in the outback of Australia, I got into a conversation with a nineteen-year-old girl from Switzerland, she couldn’t understand why I would travel somewhere besides America, she made the statement that if she lived in America, she would never leave, in her words,”America has everything a person could ever want or need.”

A few days later, we entered the tiny town of Daly Waters in the Northern Territory. They were celebrating the 4th of July, being appreciative of how the yanks saved them from the Japanese during WW2.

I’ve been on an Italian cruise ship with about 4000 passengers and only about 20% Americans, they sang our national anthem and everyone stood up placed their hands over their heart and sang, giving us a two-minute standing ovation when the song was completed.

Most thinking people appreciate and respect what America has done over the last 200 hundred plus years.

America has endured a lot, and I believe it has a manifest destiny. We would have never become a nation or survived without what George Washington would call, Divine Providence and Divine Intervention.

Fighting against impossible odds, he often gave credit to Divine Intervention for his successes.

Adhering to the basic tenets of our country, the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and the Ten Commandments we have weathered the many storms that have befallen us.

Now we face a new challenge, maybe the most critical challenge in our history.

Before, the threat to our country has come from without, now it comes from within.

Many have forgotten what made us great as a country or no longer seem to think it is important.

They seem to believe they can do and think as they please, without regard to anyone or anything else.

We have lost our way.

As I soon discovered in my travels, everyone worships God in their own way, that is what our founders wanted, we have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

We have the God-given right to express our religious beliefs in public or anywhere we chose, not to force them on anyone, but to express them as we see fit, as long as it doesn’t harm someone else, and we respect what others feel, and not infringe on their space.

The Maya, Egyptians, and Aborigines of Australia were more in tune with their creator than we are today.

Many of the aborigines still are, even though some of them have become radicalized and developed an entitlement attitude because of what the Australian government has done to try and help them.

All three cultures have regressed, the Egyptians went from calling their leaders, Gods, To Pharaohs, then kings, and now presidents.

The Maya have all but disappeared as a culture, and the aborigines are slowly dying off and trying to adapt, in the process turning to drugs and alcohol.

I see the same thing in the United States, many here are also turning to drugs and alcohol because they no longer have a spiritual foundation to rely on.

We have a drug epidemic stretching from Times Square to the cornfields of Indiana.

In an area where the Friday night entertainment was a basketball game, now several people wind up in the hospital from a drug overdose. It happens weekly.

It doesn’t even make the news anymore, it’s not uncommon for the emts to run out of narcon.

Earlier this year, the morgue in Dayton Ohio ran out of room, an airline pilot for a major airline overdosed with his wife while their young child watched.

The list goes on and on, there seems to be no end to it.

The bad behavior, lack of respect, a sense of entitlement, profanity, and people sit at home watching mindless TV while ignoring their churches, social, fraternal and civic organizations.

In spite of it all, I still believe there are many good people out there, I think the majority of Americans still have their heads on straight, their voices get silenced and their cause doesn’t get good TV ratings or sell ads in your local paper.

Many are worried, they see what is going on and feel as helpless as a cow in quicksand.

Over the last several years, America has been fundamentally changed, because of negative influences from many politicians and the media, we have forgotten where we came from and what America once stood for.

But we really can’t blame anyone but ourselves, we could not have been fundamentally transformed if we hadn’t let it happen.

We stood by silently as our country was changed from within, no one or not many even said a word, and few noticed.

Some thought it was wonderful, thinking the world has changed and we need to just go along with the flow.

Many no longer adhere to the Wisdom of Our Ancestors, that knowledge that was once passed down from generation to generation, from time immemorial.

The very things we got so tired of hearing and we swore to never repeat to our descendants, we never wanted to sound like our parents, how wrong we were.

This is how great cultures rise and fall, they become great through their deeds and beliefs, they then reach a pinnacle and begin enjoying the fruits of their labor, allowing decadence to overcome their common sense, becoming a victim of and falling to their own success.

They forget about God and become focused on their own self-importance, until they once again fall into subjugation and poverty, completing the cycle, waiting for someone to save them while forgetting no one will save them if they don’t save themselves.

The Masonic Influence on World History

They forget the spirit of self-sufficiency and self-reliance that enabled them to become successful.

It came upon us slowly, most never even noticed, the stark reality came back to me just a few days ago when a high school friend I hadn’t seen in years remarked that he had noticed it several years ago.

He joined to Air Force out of high school, after he was discharged military service, when at one time it was an honor to serve in the military, and rightfully so, having military experience opened many employment doors and opportunities, he found it hard to get a job in the post Vietnam era if you had served in the military, and once they found you had been to Vietnam, the door closed permanently.

For many, this was the final straw, after having valiantly served and being spit on when coming home, they could now not find a job, our country did a great disservice.

Having finally found employment in the DC area, he began to notice the same people who had lead all the protests in the 60s were now getting high positions in the federal government.

And so it goes today, where once, a military background provided good training, respect, and many essential job skills, they are now looked upon as a detriment, and those in our nation’s government are the very ones who not only then, but now continue to try and bring down our nation.

Today, many have it all wrong, they continuously work to bring down a great nation who has done so much for so many. They continuously look for the negatives brought on by their own personal bad attitudes and a chip on their shoulders.

Many are so mad they could swallow a horned toad backward, but they have no idea what they are mad about.

If you ask them what they are protesting, they can’t tell you. They are just protesting.

Many are looking for personal gain and wealth, siding with those of like mind with an attitude they will somehow rule the world or change things for the better. Little do they realize, that if they form the world and our nation into what they deem a perfect world, they will be the first ones to be killed, and if they live, the world will not be what they had envisioned.

We all know how to fix this, regardless of what we have been told by the media and the left, this is still the greatest nation to have existed on the planet. Americans are still great caring people. Most of us still have a remembrance of the common sense and core values we grew up with, those values taught to us by our parents and elders.

Those values that are despised by those in the media and extremist groups.

If you have forgotten, all you need to do to remember is to read the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and the writings of our founding fathers.

Then look deep inside you, past all the things you have been lead to believe by others, look into your heart and you find your answer as to what you need to do,

All knowledge comes from within.

The future is now, it’s your decision as to how this all turns out.

Remember in 1960, Nikita Khrushchev stood before the UN, took off his shoe and beat it on the podium as he stated, ” your grandchildren will be raised as a communist. “
