Love Yourself

I Love and care for myself; I believe it is my genuine expression of gratitude to my creator for giving me a beautiful body and soul. When I look in the mirror I see Sam Heughan (as he appeared in Outlanders), not the image I’m looking at. With this image of myself, I go out to conquer the world as Coeur de Lyon! I love myself with the deepest sincerity, even to the point where I live my life ‘self-lovingly’. In doing so I never live for other people.  I live for myself. Not even my creator expects me to live for Him, in Him, yes, but most definitely not for Him (what could I do for my creator?) In not living for others, I am better equipped to encourage others and help them along the road of life. The result of this is; I have a very happy life.

Peter’s Quote for The Day Owl Wisdom Symbol

owl

Feature Photo by Dušan Veverkolog Upsplash.com.

The Owl is a symbol of wisdom. Would this be because she avoids the senseless chirping and chatter around her during the day? She seeks her nourishment in the stillness of the night when all others are asleep. Maybe I should take a leaf out of her book. Speak less, listen more, and then, away from the maddening crowds, nourish my soul with words of wisdom.

Peter’s Quote for The Day Thoughts

Thought Catalog

Feature Photo by Thought Catalogue Upsplash.com

Managing my thoughts has become an important practice for me. It has led to me establishing a disciplined process of observing my thoughts. Filing them in order of their importance, and taking appropriate action from there. This way I send useless thoughts to file thirteen. Storing possible useful thoughts for use later. Then act on thoughts that benefit me immediately. It is so much quieter in my head these days.

Weekly Words of Wisdom Think Positive.

Positive

Feature Photo by Viktor Forgacs Upsplash.com

Think Positive?

I could never understand why so many people say, “Be positive.” How can I become positive? I asked myself.  With this, I went on a journey to find out how to be positive, but to no avail. I was exhausted. Sitting down under a tree, I fell asleep. I was surprised to hear a wee voice, with an Irish accent. “Surely it’ll be yourself you’re looking for? Never you mind about being positive.”

I awoke to recall the little green elf’s words (After speaking to local Irish experts, it was confirmed, I had an encounter with a Leprechaun!) Looking for myself I questioned, how do I do this?

I needn’t have asked the question, because I felt a deep change had taken place in me. Filled with new confidence, inner power, and spiced with an air of peace. I knew I had found myself.

Arriving at our local pharmacy, I greeted one of the assistants, who eyed me strangely saying, “Well now, you’re the positive one today Shaun.”

Aaah I thought, you found yourself and now you can say, I’m positive!

If you are trying to find out how to be positive, come to Ireland. Maybe you might have an encounter with a Leprechaun. The Leprechaun will tell you not to worry about trying to be positive, just look inside and find yourself. If you believe this, you will be astounded at the change in yourself.

Peter’s Quote for The Day Crises

Storm

Feature Photo by Johannes Plenio Upsplash.com

I never fear crises in my life. The sun rises, the winds blow, rain, and snow fall. In my life crises come and crises go, but the sun will rise tomorrow. I discovered anxiety to be an absolutely fruitless and damaging activity. I have observed how many times this activity turned out to be uncalled for. An anxious sleepless night disappears with the dawn and is forgotten by midday. There has, thankfully, never been a dull moment in my life, because accepting crises makes all the difference. C’est La Vie and move on!

Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Sunrise

Feature Photo by Federico Respini Upsplash.com

It is said, “…There is nothing new under the sun…” It is also said, “The sun rises on a new day.” Is the latter a mistake? Should it not read, “The sun rises on yet another day.” Should the former not read, “There are many things occurring under the sun daily that are similar to those that took place in times gone by?” I need to give this some thought…Right, I have decided; irrespective of how many events have reoccurred in my lifetime, will not alter the fact, if I do not examine these events and check to see if my responses are not a repetition of something that has failed before, I will fail again.

Weekly Words of Wisdom

Habits Atomic

Feature Photo by Lala Azizli Upsplash.com

Changing Habits

I have always resisted any form of change. As time has passed, I have realized that change is a constant in my life, whether I like it or not. Resisting change is a habit I have had for more years than I can remember. Try though I may, I could not break this habit.

I was under the illusion of believing that so-called change involved only the bigger developments in my life, not incidental, moment-to-moment happenings.

There are myriads of annoying little incidents that take place in my life. A neighbor’s yapping dog, someone playing excessively loud music, a person being rude to me. All these are annoying, to say the least. But why am I so affected by these events? Because they are challenging me to change my bad attitude habit.

After reading much of Eckhart Tolle’s works, I began to wake up to the fact that the pain I felt in resisting change was from my habit, not the challenge of change.

He also speaks about ‘conscientiousness’ and the importance of living in that state. I now practice this throughout my day. I discipline myself to focus through the course of every activity I’m engaged in, no matter how small.

Reading Tolle’s information has had miraculous results for me.

I live in the now moment. I contend with my old habits of resisting change. I’m continually aware that my habits create my pain, not the challenge of change.

Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Journey

Feature Photo by Clemens van Lay Upsplash.com

I used to say, with some level of exasperation, “My life is filled with problems.” Did I mean, ‘My life is filled with issues that challenge my journey?’ Maybe I need to face the journey of life with the view that challenges must be laid across my path. This is in order to strengthen my character and resolve. In addition, to keep me heading in the best direction. If so, the way ahead would be for me to accept that with every challenge there is a purposeful solution. This purposeful reason comes about in the right season. I should condition my mind to accept the journey of life to be beautifully paved with challenges. This is opposed to my life being a chaos of ‘unsolvable problems.’ Surely it would be a more satisfying way for me to live?

Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Satisfied

“I’m full of nuts!” Feature Photo: by Hunter Gascon Upsplash.com

I feel disappointed when something I was hoping for, does not come about. A voice within me said it is the word ‘disappointed’ that gets in my way.’ So I removed the word ‘disappointed‘ and replaced it with ‘satisfied and accept.‘ ‘Now I say, “When something I was hoping for, does not materialize, I accept the situation and I feel satisfied.”  I need to tell you, once I have accepted I feel so much more relaxed.

Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Order

Feature Photo by Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

I find order a comforting state, yet, in terms of others around me, I have often wondered how practical my state is? For instance there are those that insist on order, and there are those that are out of kilter with order; in addition there are those that could not care less, one way or the other. I decided I will create and live in my ordered state whilst managing others, with discretion, as they are affected by my order.
