Take to Adventure.

I love adventure with a passion. I was adventurous from a young age. As I matured I found that adventure was not all outside of me. The real effortless adventures were to be found inside of me. Outward adventures gave me memories. My inward adventures have resulted in outward creativity. I write creatively, I scribble pictures – more than this though, I create my own happiness, that’s something to think about.

Peter’s Quote for The Day-Choosing Friends.

Friends

Feature Duy Pham Upsplash.com

Choose Friends Wisely

I must be wise with my choice of friends. If I part for one reason or another from any of them, I must do so kindly, with no ill feelings when I part from those friends. Parting does not mean I cease to love you. (by love, I do not address the romantic love, but the love of our fellow humans.) Adopting this attitude, I have found much peace of mind.

A voicemail message attributed to a certain Pastor Henry Schorr goes like this: “Thanks for calling. I’ve been away making changes in my life. Please leave a message. If you don’t hear back from me, you are one of the changes. Enjoy your day.” (“The Power of Focus.” Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Les Hewitt. page 130.)

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Dying too Early.

Grey Jacket

Are You Dying Before Your Time?

Am I dying before my time? Once I commuted through traffic for an hour to arrive at my job in time for the 7.30 clock-in. Dressed in a grey jacket and tie and carrying my lunch in a briefcase, I tried to look important. Yip, I paid the price for resisting change offered to me on a plate by the universe. I never received any reward for fighting change in my life, only the prospect of growing old and dying before my time. You ask,” Is it possible to ‘die before one’s time’?”

I found out that I could quickly die before my time by dying before I died! I’m serious. Think about it; there must be a large community of souls whom we could term the ‘living dead.’ Those poor people whose daily activity is to exist. They have no hope for the future. (these are not limited to any age group.) I certainly was one of those.  In my life, the turnaround was when I was willing to accept all manner of change put across my path. Large or small. In other words, change, becoming a lifestyle for myself. Would you believe this: I have become younger?

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Forgive Quickly.

Forgive

Feature Photo by Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Decide to Forgive

I have learned, mostly from painful experiences to never let my anger cause me to react and later regret how I’ve reacted. I’ve found that anger is a single-edged sword with the sharp end facing me. I am the one who pays the bigger price for harboring anger. Especially, I must not carry my anger into my sleep. My anger is one of my emotions that lacks the qualities of sound reasoning. As I enter my sleep I make a statement, I forgive, whoever or whatever has made me angry. I am aware that to forgive is simply a decision, not an emotion. In addition, it is the thought about whoever or whatever has made me angry that is the real issue. As a result, I stop entertaining that thought in my mind immediately. Then I go to sleep, and as I love sleeping, I sleep well.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-The Dandelions.

Dandelions

Feature Photo by Galina Tcarkova Upsplash.com

Learn From The Dandelions

Looking out my window, I see hundreds of Dandelion seeds blown off the mother flowers into the wind. These float as lost and unsure of which way to go, sometimes shooting upward, sometimes downward. They have no fear, though, as their Guide, the wind, knows how to lead them to their destination. The seeds yield to the way of their Guide. Shouldn’t you and I do the same and surrender to our Guide?

Strange though it may seem, It has taken many years for me to grasp this principle of yielding to my Guide. Understanding this principle was easier than trying to apply it in my life, I’m sure you know what I mean.

While I was gazing at all the little yellow sticky notes surrounding my desk area, an idea came to me. Why not put a sticky note in my mind? I realize this may sound a little off the wall, but I felt it was worth a try.

If my Guide (who lives inside me) says it works, who am I to question the issue?

The next move was how I set about placing a sticky note into my mind. A reminder that will appear at an appropriate moment, just when I need it.

Have you ever tried focusing on something often enough, and eventually, it forms an image in your mind? So this is what I did after my Guide prompted me. Hey-Ho, sticky note, here we go!

In my following morning’s meditation time, I stuck the sticky note onto my mental vision board. Since then, I consciously see the little yellow message in front of me. When I become anxious about a particular event occurring in my life, I see the sticky note in my mind. I then allow myself to yield to my Guide. This arrangement never fails me.

Peter’s Quote for The Day-The Golden Goose.

Golden Egg

Feature Photo by Sharon McCutcheon Upsplash.com

The Golden Goose Lays Golden Eggs

I learned something very valuable. There are some ancient and wise words that say, “Cast your bread on the waters and after many days it will return.” But there’s more…. “Give a portion to six or seven…” What the wise words are explaining is: Invest in your fellow humans and as time goes by your investment will grow in return. But don’t stop there, give even more from your gain. Now you become like the golden goose, sharing her eggs as she lays them. It’s another way of saying, “Love your neighbor.”

Peter’s Quote for The Day-ADHD and Loved

ADHD and Loved

Being ADHD and mildly dyslexic has never held me back; it’s just the reactions of others who become confused by my behavior! I feel for them not being able to be inside my skin, wherein is a huge treasure chest. A treasure chest of quirky qualities. A huge store of imagination, energy, spontaneity, creativity, and innovation. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I am a happy ADHD chappie in love with himself and loved by others.

Peter’s Quote for The Day-First Love

Heart

Feature Photo by Jon Tyson Upsplash.com

Kissed and Loved

My first love came about when I was seven years old. As two seven-year-olds, sitting on the porch, and making certain no one was watching, we kissed. Many, many years later, I found the first lady I have ever truly loved. Falling in love with her was extraordinarily exciting; we kissed often. I never wanted to lose this feeling, so I married her and decided I never wish to fall out of the love that I have fallen into.

Weekly Words of Wisdom – Weather.

Weather

Feature Photo by Wim van ‘t Einde Upsplash.com

What’s it like out there today?

The country in which I live, most people I greet, respond by commenting on the weather. “It’s a good day today”, or “Bad weather we having today.” or “We are having too much rain.” to mention a few. I then realized it is futile to engage these comments for certain reasons.

The Universe is Self-Controlled

Firstly the Universe, to the best of my understanding, is a self-controlled system (no one is flicking switches or pushing buttons.) It does what is required to sustain life on Earth at the precise moment and location necessary. (I can’t speak for what happens elsewhere in the Universe, as I have no idea.) This will include seasons, temperatures, night and day, earthquakes, volcanoes, tornados, tsunamis, and so on.

The Universe performs what is necessary at the time it is needed

Secondly, who is to say that the “bad weather” I am experiencing today isn’t performing its duty of maintaining the balance of nature in my area and creating a ‘butterfly effect for weather elsewhere? (as it may have been performed on many occasions before there were meteorological records.) With this in mind, I’m convinced that all weather is firstly just perfect for what the world needs at this moment and secondly, it’s absolutely spot on time!

I Liken the Universe to my Body

The function of the universe could be likened to my body. The universal control, being my brain and the rest of my mind and body components being the galaxies that populate the vast stellar sky. Nothing happens without my brain. Its function is completely automatic. For this reason, I can safely go to sleep at night, knowing that my brain continues its work. It does so perfectly, performing necessary functions at precisely the correct time. Can you think of anything to compare with these two magnificent systems? Now I have an inkling of how the universal system works I love my days and whatever weather they bring. With this attitude, my life is uncomplicated and I am always happy.

Peter’s Quote for The Day – Love the Greatest Value

Love The Greatest

Feature Photo by Tim Mossholder Upsplash.com

Love, The Greatest Value

I aspire to a higher way of living, not the generally accepted values of the world at large. Instead, values of love, honesty, integrity, compassion, and respect toward my fellow humans. Surely love must be the most important of these attributes, and yet, it is the least given. I have been working on this for some years now. Apart from affording me a peaceful life, I reap a harvest of blessings in addition.
