Do We Need A One World Government Or One World Religion

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Many today believe that to solve the world’s problems we need a one world government or only one religion.

Somehow they believe that one more level of government , a government that is governed on a world level would bring about peace.

How can one more level of corrupt government officials solve anything? It has been proven that the farther removed from the people our governments become, the more corrupt and uncaring they tend to be.

That is why our founders believed in placing most of the power of government in the state and local governments, another level of government would only remove the leaders even more from the people and place more power in the hands of a select few. 

I think most believe a new world order would include combing all religions into one, anyone who believes this hasn’t thought it through. 

We all have different beliefs, and many times in life our beliefs change as we age. We all come to the earth plane to learn different lessons and to experience different realities, If we are to grow spiritually, different beliefs are necessary. None of us is exactly like anyone else, and not one of us believes exactly as someone else believes.

When we study history, we find the idea of one religion failed miserably in Europe many times over.

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

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.

He has published several books about his adventures.

The beautiful Islands of Saint Thomas and Saint John

Photography by Gary Wonning

Coral World was inaugurated in the 1970s.  Since then It has been one of St. Thomas’ most important tourist attractions.

In 1998, workers at Coral World began breeding Seahorses.

Please click on the photos to see beautiful photos of Saint Thomas.

Rescued Sea turtles are some of the more popular residents of Coral World

The ocean park consists of an open-water system where water flows through each of the exhibits and back out to the ocean. 

Coral World Marine Park in St. Thomas incorporates all the world famous features: Marine Museum, Shark, Stingray and Turtle Pools, Touch Pools, and naturally – The Underwater Observatory.

 

Coral World St. Thomas was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and was fully renovated by Coral World International. In 1995 Coral World St. Thomas was hit again by Hurricanes Marilyn and Louis. In 2017 Coral World was again destroyed by Hurricane Irma. Each time, it has fully recovered and remains one of the top destinations when visiting Saint Thomas.

Exhibits include the Caribbean Reef Encounter an 80,000 gallon circular tank open at the top for the natural elements to filter in. Marine Gardens which has 21 smaller tanks displaying ocean life in the Caribbean. Shark Shallows a nursery for adolescent sharks. A stingray pool where guests can feed the stingray after the presentation. 

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Muslim Attacks in the Mediterranean Lead to the “Discovery” of the New World

The Discovery of the New World

An interesting photo book about the Maya Indians of central America

Written by:Gary Wonning

The Muslims and Christians have been fighting for centuries, it has been an on-going battle that has continued through the millennia.

During that time period, Muslim pirate Barbarossa wrecked havoc in the Mediterranean, raiding the coasts of France, Italy, and Spain, carrying away thousands of Europeans into slavery. In the process,Muslim Turks had conquered the Byzantine Empire,  u were invading Serbia, Hungary, and Bulgaria. Suleiman’s armies surrounded Vienna, Austria, in 1529. For centuries Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan conquerors killed  millions of Hindus and Sikhs in India and the East.

The Spanish soldier proved to be the most successful champion in defending Christendom. Spain’s King Ferdinand put a halt to the 700-year Muslim occupation of western Europe. Using gold from the New World, Spain was able to push back the Muslim invaders on land and sea.

It was during this time, the Europeans began running out of resources to fight the good fight. At the risk of Europe being over run and conquered by the invaders, new sources of revenue had to be found and found quickly.

Hearing of vast sources of gold and other valuable resources to the west, their attention naturally turned to discovering ways of tapping into this perceived wealth.

The Spanish at that time were one of the major leaders in the world so the task fell to them to explore the new world.

The natives of the America’s had never advanced their civilization one iota over the last ten thousand years and thus had none of the modern conveniences or technology the Europeans, Chinese, Tuks or others possessed, so it was just a matter of time before they were conquered by someone, at the time, the Spanish were the most powerful.

There is a lesson to be learned here for everyone when we don’t advance our learning and knowledge, sooner or later another culture will overtake us and destroy our way of life.

Different Times, Different Places, Different Soul Mates.

Art Prints

On the physical plane, there seems to be a correlation between where we live, what we are experiencing and the people we attract to us. This seems to apply to soul mates as well.

I think most of us realize there is a difference  between a soul mate and a twin flame. I discovered this on my own personal journey as I have written in A Journey to Enlightenment.

We have many soul mates, souls we met along the path of life. Souls we have experienced many lifetimes and experiences with over the eons. These souls have seen us thru thick and thin, we have had many experiences with them, both what we would call good and bad. Although in the spirit world and in this context, there are no good and bad experiences (actions), just experiences.  

In the real world as well as the karmic world, there is a difference between good and bad actions. What we sow we shall reap, we will have to repay karma for negative actions we may perform. 

Sometimes, for the soul to grow, we need to perform acts that are unacceptable to society and pay the consequences of them.

When we enter a different physical location on earth, we connect with different souls according to what we may learn from them. It seems as we enter their area of influence, we become  engulfed with the energy they project and we move away from others we may have connected with in the past, not so much with everyone we know, but to those we have a strong soul connection to.

In other words, our relationship to others changes as our physical location changes. As we move back into the previous physical location, we again take up the relationships we left behind.

Many times, entering an area where we had some sort of bond with someone from our distant past will rekindle  emotions from that era. As the Australia Aborigines believe, once a spirit passes through an area, an image of their essence remains forever. That is how they are able to track people who have become lost over solid rock and bring them home to safety.

By tapping into that energy, those with an ability to do so are able to see things most of us cannot.

Time also plays a factor, our recognition of other souls is influenced by time, not only the time we are living in but the time frame that we knew others as well. 

Because this, we can often become confused by our feelings towards others, and how those feelings can change over time and distance. 

This is why we come into this existence with very little memory of what has come before, if we remembered it all at one time, it would be so confusing we wouldn’t be able to function properly in this lifetime. 

We can only receive small amounts of light at a time. Our mind needs a certain amount of time to process it and understand what it all means. Once  we understand more will be revealed to us.

The author has been a writer/ photographer for over 20 years, specializing in nature, landscapes and studying native cultures. Besides visiting most of the United States, he has traveled to such places as Egypt, the Canary Islands, much of the Caribbean.

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist.

There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God!

This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception.

It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling.

My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

Available in both hard copy and ebook format.

Entering a New Dimension of Consciousness

Photography Prints

I have believed for quite some time that our DNA is being activated into a new awareness.

Hopi and other American Indian shamans as well as myself believe we are moving into a time when we will chose a future of doom and gloom or an era of a new beginning, a new frequency, or a new dimension of existence where we will become more intuitive and able to understand the motives of others and possibly reconnect with beings of other dimensions.

As we move into this new reality, many of us will experience symptoms that will tell the discerning soul they are indeed moving to a heightened awareness.

I seem to be experiencing most of the symptoms they are describing, although some may move into this new era and display no symptoms at all. Alas, some may have real physical diseases that should be checked out by a doctor. Proceed at your own discretion.

The following symptoms were noted in Shirley Maclaine’s new book,”What If?”

  1. Headaches or nonlocalized pressure in the head;
  1. Shifting or unstable vision; Perhaps the cessation of the karma of the last twenty-six thousand years will enable us to begin again without fear. History will definitely need a new script, and all of us— humans and star

beings, extraterrestrial actors— will have a chance to play our part

  1. Requiring one pair of glasses one day and a different pair the next;
  1. A deepening sense of the ability to “see”;

  1. Sleep pattern interruptions;
  1. Feelings that you are going crazy, losing your mind, or an inability to focus;
  1. Emotional tenderness, mood swings, and “mania”;
  1. An embracing of unity consciousness;
  1. Heightened sensitivity to smell, sound, and

taste, or change in eating preferences;

  1. Losing track of “time”;
  1. Physically dropping or bumping into things;
  1. Hearing high-pitched tones or a series of tones or pressure in one or both ears;
  1. Spiritual death or brief suicidal thoughts; Headaches or nonlocalized pressure in the head;
  1. A heightened sense of not being in the present, or a sense of detachment;
  1. A general sense of “free-flowing” energy that can often manifest and be misinterpreted as anxiety;
  1. Jolts of energy that are felt physically and often will move the body;
  1. Lack of focus and attention for any length of time;
  1. Heightened, newfound discomfort with some public environments;
  1. A sudden urge to make everything spacious, to release personal treasures, or to remove clutter from your environment;
  1. Heartburn or chest pressure;
  1. Attraction to new colors;
  1. Change in priorities in your career/ relationships;  and
  1. A feeling of time “moving fast.”

I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t  record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time. Hence my book is short on references, but long on experience.

World War Two Vets Unstoppable

They came in mighty buses instead of tanks ,jeeps and personnel carriers. They only came to honor their fallen comrades and to remember one last time, the heroics from an earlier time, another time when the fate of liberty and freedom hung in the balance.

 


It was a bright sunny day in Washington D.C. , the perfect day to remember and reflect. As the buses approached the World War 2 memorial, they discovered it was closed because of a senseless government shutdown brought on by a spineless congress and clueless president who only have their own  agenda and pocketbook in their best interest.


A memorial that normally is open twenty four hours a day, with no gate, was found to have a barricade around it, a senseless act in itself.  If the government is out of money, where did they find the money to put up the barricade?


U.S. Capitol

 

It didn’t stop these brave men and women who stormed the beaches of such places as Normandy, Omaha Beach, Iwo Jima, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, Guam, the Philippines, and many other historic and important battles,they never gave a thought that maybe their last and possibly most important battle would be fought on the lawn of their nation’s capitol.


Armed with only walkers, wheelchairs, and canes, they weren’t about to let a little fence stop them. These memorials belong to “We the people”, not government bureaucrats. Nothing was going to prevent these noble warriors from their appointed mission.


They came to remember , and certainly deserved more than this from an often thankless nation and arrogant federal government. As they roamed the mall they had to be wondering whatever happened to this once great nation, a nation that once believed in God, a nation founded on moral principles and virtue, where politicians , even though they have always been self centered and thinking mostly of themselves, at least had an ounce of common sense and decency.


They fought the fiercest of battles, they all lost friends , relatives , many came home wounded for life, in the name of freedom and liberty. Millions of people around the world owe  their lives and freedom to these brave men and women.


They came one last time to remember, in the end they, going above and beyond what is expected, fought one last battle for freedom. Who is going to carry on when they, the greatest generation are gone?

The Middle East Conflict

Conflict in the middle east


For many years, the United States has played a major role in maintaining peace in the world. During that time, contrary to what many may think, the United States accomplished much and contributed greatly to world peace.Today, many people  enjoy freedom because of our actions.

 

If not for the United states, many  would now be speaking German and under the thumb of Nazism and or Communism. However, the times are changing.

We are now living in a different world. In times past, our adversaries had some of the same values we had, they valued human life.  Most were freedom loving people who for one reason or another, found themselves under the thumb of a cruel and violent dictator. Once freedom was again regained, they went on to create a productive and positive society.

In today’s world, many of  our adversaries in the middle east have no comprehension of what freedom is , nor do they desire it. They are still living in the middle ages and have no desire to change.

Egyptian Village

It’s a totally different mindset than in the past. Although, in most cases, our intentions are noble, we cannot do it for them. We can provide aid, weapons and such, but if they have no desire, there is nothing we can do. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.

For generations, the United States has supported the world, both militarily and financially. As a result , many countries have better educational and medical facilities than we do. Because they did not have to worry about providing a strong military for their defense, they could provide many more domestic benefits for their citizens.

We have now reached a point in time when it is necessary for them to support themselves. No longer should we be the sole provider for their security, why do we still have troops in South Korea? Their GNP  is something like 37 times as great as North Korea, shouldn’t they be protecting themselves?

The Ancient Egyptian Texts

The middle east is and always has been a tinderbox. This has been going on for thousands of years, dating back to the time of the Knights Templars and before.  Our first war as a country was against the Barbary Pirates off the coast of Africa, who were pirating our ships and blackmailing our young country almost to the point of bankruptcy. The Marine song was derived from this time, “From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli.”

Today we no longer know who the good guys are in that region, if there are any. Our country wants to support the Syrian rebels who are our fiercest enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood. We have seen how that turned out in Egypt. For too long we have supplied arms to these groups, only to turn around and have those same guns pointed at us during the next conflict. How stupid is that?

It is a mess we want to stay out of , in spite of all the atrocities being committed, they are being committed on both sides. It’s a lose lose situation. The only option we have is to stay out of it, it’s not our fight.  Let them fight it out and we will talk to the survivors.

So it is with the rest of the world, we do need to maintain some sort of a presence worldwide, we need to maintain our superiority in the world environment, for not only our interests but the rest of the free world as well. There are countries out there that would destroy freedom in  a heartbeat if it  wasn’t for the United States, we must never forget that.

However, we do not need to play mommy and daddy to them any longer, it’s time they grew up and charted their own destiny, most can do a lot more than they have to protect their own interests. It’s not only for our own good, but theirs as well.
