Misfortunes-Peter’s Wisdom Snippets .

misfortune

Feature Photo by Sigmund Upsplash.com

Because of the many misfortunes, I have experienced in my own life that I have compassion for those that lack in any way. And in this way, with my compassion, misfortunes became fortunes.

In times of sorrow, without thinking, I set my living aside to focus on my sorrow; And yet, sorrow gives nothing but pain, it is a taker of my joy and peace. But living is a giver of all manner of wonderful experiences. So I opted to leave sorrow behind and live. What a difference that has made to me.

I found that if do something helpful for another, I am immediately uplifted.

Integrity holds within its grasp the power of generosity towards others. And generosity towards others holds the power of return to sender, with interest.

Grudges-Peter’s Wisdom Snippets.

Grudge

Feature Photo by John Bussell Upsplash.com

When I’m tempted to hold grudges; It calls for rearranging the thoughts in my mind. I make very sure the important thoughts are placed on top of the others. Next, I toss the grudges into file thirteen. Hey-ho, I’m ready to go.

It has become apparent to me that accusing others is a senseless activity. This benefits neither the accuser nor the one being accused. For this reason, I accuse no one, not even myself. Because the folly of blame, justified or not, is this: It is never a solution.

It is said, when I point an accusing finger at anyone, three fingers point back at me. The fingers say, “Energy waster!”

It is both consoling and gratifying for me to respect all my fellow human beings. To treat or think of others with contempt is more damaging to me than it is to them.

I am intensely aware of perceiving something to be what it’s not. Wisdom has taught me to carefully filter my perception in order for me to see things as they really are.

Contact-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

contact

I’m so grateful that we have access to the many mediums of contact with one another. The benefits are enormous. Not the least being that while we may be thousands of kilometers apart, we are only a couple of keys away from contact.

I am the sole analyst of situations in my life and decidedly the only one to do something about them.

If I am overly concerned for my future, I become a slave to time. Now, as time is an illusion, I become, in truth, a slave to something that does not exist. Don’t you find that odd!

Wisdom came by me because I sought her; I did not know how to live with her when she first arrived. Now we are soulmates.

The word ‘heart’ appears more than a thousand times in the Judeo-Christian scriptures. They say that the heart is not merely a physical organ but the seat of our emotions, no less.

A considerable amount of ancient scripture refers to the word ‘heart’ as a place of emotion. We’ve all heard of the expression, ‘you broke my heart.’ We all understand in this case; the heart is not physically broken. It is emotionally damaged. Most of us will be familiar with the excitement of ‘being in love.’ In particular, how our hearts beat faster in this experience.

The heart is an organ, a powerful pump, moving our lifeline of blood around the body. Is it also a seat for our emotions? Lacking the necessary knowledge medically or scientifically, I cannot comment on this subject. But I find it of particular fascination. If the heart is not only an organ but also a source of emotion, wouldn’t this be amazing?

I found another source that feels the same as I do, and they offer a degree of scientific input. I thought you might like to read Shawn Radcliffe’s information on the subject.

Emotion-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Emotions

Feature Picture Tengyart Upsplash.com

I have discovered that every emotion I have, has its roots in the thoughts I think. The question is this: to what origin do I owe my thoughts?

The next time you feel a strong emotion, particularly an unpleasant one — try to question and excavate details surrounding its origin. Changing an unhealthy thought pattern could actually be the difference between a lifetime of needless suffering and happy fulfilling life.

A large portion of my adult life was devoted to a self-indulgent lifestyle. I lived in this manner until I discovered I had a soul and spirit, not just a body.

If a beautiful flower can rise up on a refuse dump, then how about you and me? Surely we can rise up from any circumstances?

Seek to Be Calm

Mostly things don’t calm down next week, usually, they get worse. What is important though is how much you allow calm to affect you.

I am the sole analyst of situations in my life and decidedly the only one to do something about them.

If I allow myself to be brought into concern for my future, I become a slave to time. Now, as time is an illusion, I become, in truth, a slave to something that does not exist. Don’t you find that odd!

Wisdom came by me because I sought her; when she arrived, I had to be taught how to live with her. Now we are soulmates.

Morality-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Morality

Focus on Morality

Is Humanity served by high social graces, with low morality? Is it not better to have high social graces, with compassion for those who suffer; and have high morality as well? I wonder.

I learned in my life if I delay any decisions they go dimmer with the passing days. My decisions are much more effective when applied immediately.

If you believe that you are a created being, you should also believe that, in turn, your purpose in this life is to create. All of us are creative artists in one form or another. Some will paint, some write, others singing or acting. There are those that serve others in many differing ways. There are those that manufacture, farm, and countless others. What do you create?

I spent much time trying to find myself. Once I saw the futility of this exercise and, on the counsel of another, I took a new tack. Standing in front of the mirror, I addressed myself as follows: ‘From today, I am going to create a new person out of you.’  The results have been so encouraging

Mysteries-Four Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Mystery

Feature Photo by DDP upsplash.com

Pursue Mysteries and You will Find Them.

I’ve long been intrigued by mysteries. I have found many mysteries, not by stumbling upon them, but by desiring them.

I am grateful my life dreams have never been affected by the vicissitudes of the events in my life; they have only been inspired by these.

What I would have died for years ago, is a noxious cocktail to me today; I am thankful for wisdom and maturing of the years. As a result, I die for nothing, rather I live for life.

After walking through a bog, then on newly-cut lawn, I’ve no doubt which I would not do again, would you?

Visionary-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Vision

Be A Visionary

I was a visionary from young, however in my earliest youth, I was not aware of the fact. Now that I have become aware of being visionary, it explains why I have failed so many times.

The trees bend in the storm, because they know they will stand erect once again, when the storm has left. Bend when you need in life’s storms, but stand erect soon as possible.

I have begun to wonder, has the word ‘motivation’ in all its forms become overused? In my case if I wanted to achieve or change something in my life, I would simply  desire it and dream it was mine. Hey-ho, it became so.

As a youth, I was very religious and went to church every day. I went because I was told God was in a box on the altar and I was very keen to meet God. The day dawned when I had a close encounter with God and was grateful to learn God was not in a box on the altar but within me; on that note I gave up on looking and began to enjoy what I have. I have never looked back since.

Choices-Four Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

choice

Feature Photo by Elena Mozhvilo upsplash.com

Mind Your Choices

Our choices are not the only initiators of consequences in our lives. Sometimes we are victims of circumstances created by others. However, our choices will become critical in how we deal with these. What if events initiated by others were, in fact, an opportunity in a victim wrapping?

The actions I perform today, whether visible or not, may take many moons to reveal their consequences. But show these, they will. 

Guardedness is not always a safety net. Guardedness may, at times, be a lack of courage. It is certainly not a quality found in visionaries.

My courageousness has removed the word conservative from my dictionary.

Plan-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Plan

What You Plan Is Not Always Best

I do not become concerned if what I plan does not eventuate, as most times the right one replaces it.

If I believe that everything in my life benefits me, irrespective of what it is, I will be rich.

In my life I only see a journey. This journey has no destination, which allows me plenty time to enjoy the journey.

As I have become wiser, I accept my life as it comes each moment. The result is that I live within the garden of a  wonderful peacefulness.
