Utopian Societies Never Last

 

People often believe a Utopian society would be like heaven on earth, in reality many believe that heaven is a Utopian society where all we do is float around on a cloud and listen to some evolved soul enlighten us about heavenly matters.

Believe it or not, most souls do not stay in Utopian realities for very long. They easily get bored and begin seeking challenges.

Most souls throughout Creation prefer some degree of drama and challenge to spice up their existence. Having problems to solve can be stimulating and fun. Therefore, a healthy balance of male and female energy is most often preferred. 

People who seek an Utopian lifestyle would be the first to become dissatisfied and move on to more challenges, likewise, those who think they would prefer a society with no men, or men who are submissive like would soon discover the men would not be to their liking and would soon tire of playing the female dominance role. 

Many also believe a society where more feminine energy is present is a more positive environment.

Male energy is aggressive. When a world is overflowing with male energy, this typically creates a world driven by competition; wars thrive endlessly until there is only one man standing or until the world is completely destroyed.

When ego-based individuals interact with each other, they typically tend to compete for power and domination of all goods and resources. Conversely, female energy is passive, and when a planet is overflowing with this energy, it often becomes cooperative and peaceful; there is little to no competition and the world is driven by the sharing of goods and resources. However, when too much passive energy is flowing, reality can easily become uneventful. Passive civilizations are also more prone to invasion and conquest by others.

In spite of what many today believe, we need a balance of male and female energy, men are needed just as much as women, only through balance can we achieve perfection in our world.

How Do We Create Our Human Life

 

Written by Gary Wonning

Often times, when discussing free will with others , they will agree that we all have free will, the freedom to choose how and where to live our lives. 

But suddenly the barriers go up when we suggest we have free will and by having that freedom, we choose where and to whom we are born. Suddenly, that is God’s choice and we have nothing to do with it. 

How can we have free will to live our lives as we choose and not have the freedom to choose into what circumstances we are born?

Free will is free will, either we have it or we don’t. 

I suppose if you want to get philosophical, we can choose to not have free will, but I’m not sure how that works. 

In the general scheme of things, we create our life on earth by choosing and activating different versions of our life that has already been created at the spirit level of your consciousness, sort of like pre-programming  your television. 

Our thoughts, beliefs and what we imagine all go into this decision, along with what we desire to improve in our soul learning.

We actually project the thoughts we have imagined, thought and decided. 

We all have infinite possibilities and it is though our thoughts, we change our reality and life. We choose a general path before we enter the earthly existence, choosing wealth, poverty, freedom, enslavement , etc. all for our soul growth and enlightenment and have the ability to change our life path at any time.  

For some this is hard to grasp, that we would personally chose a life of hard times for the betterment of ourselves, they want to blame it on God or some other entity so they can remove all personal responsibility. 

It is only when one realizes they have chosen this life plan that they begin to realize the power of self realization, and as their soul growth begins, they begin to move away from self punishment and begin to realize they are entitled to much more positivity in their life.

We begin to realize that life is an illusion, life only exists in our perception of life, many times our perception is quite different than the person sitting beside us. 

We each live our own reality, it is our reality alone.

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?

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?

Helping kids Who Are Returning To School

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

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

Every year there are good intentioned people sponsoring fund raisers to buy school supplies for under privileged kids returning to school. This is a noble cause and it will help many kids who would otherwise not have the opportunity to have the items they need to succeed in school.

However noble the cause, I look at the reason schools say they can’t afford to buy the items needed in the classroom to enable a proper education.

It seems that daily there are news stories about how teachers and students themselves have to supply the things the schools should be providing. Obviously, teachers shouldn’t be required to purchase these items either. In many parts of the country, teachers are underpaid, and not allowed to discipline their students when they misbehave, some have even gotten thrown out of the class room by unruly students and weren’t even able to defend themselves.

For most of us, our property taxes have risen substantially over the years due to inflation and rising property values, and the schools keep complaining they are always needing more money.

We have school board members making over $200,000 dollars  per year and the schools can’t afford to buy supplies for the children, something is wrong here and it isn’t that the schools don’t have enough money.

Public schools are a government program, and I haven’t seen a government program that doesn’t always need more money, and regardless of how much is allotted to them, they always spend it and always complain they need more.

As the old adage proclaims, ” The easiest task in the world is to spend other peoples money.”

The school system is proving that, there is no accountability, all they need to do is complain to the taxpayers, and the money flows in and surprisingly, the money winds up in the school administrations pockets instead of where it actually needs to go, big surprise.

Meanwhile the students and teachers are once again left holding an empty bag.

When someone works for the government, they are supposed to be a public servant. While I don’t advocate someone working for peanuts, they should not be getting rich off the taxpayers.

Our present school board consists of five members,  the president makes almost $200,000 dollars a year, with the other four making around $40,000. Being a school board member should be voluntary, or at least their salaries should be cut in half, with the president being reduced by at least $150,000. How many school supplies would this one reduction pay for?

I’m not even getting into how much the rest of the administration receives, plus the perks.

By creating this environment, not only are we driving up the costs to the taxpayers, but we are teaching our kids the wrong values.

Kids aren’t learning  to be independent and to make it on their own, the cornerstone of the American way of life. By receiving this presumed “free stuff” , they are being taught to depend on government and others for their daily needs, instead of learning to rely on themselves and finding ways to improvise to make life work, and then and only then to look to others for help through the rough times in life.

If kids learn coping skills, they are then better able to function in the real world, and not become unglued when faced with the first crisis of their adult life.This problem, as well as many others will never be solved by throwing more money at a bad idea. It isn’t a problem of not having enough money, the problem is the priorities are no longer what they should be.

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.
