Path-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Path & Lighthouse

Feature Photo by William Bout Upsplash.com

There are times when I am seeking a path. Then there are times when I have to create my path.

When the light within me pours forth, the way ahead becomes clear.

I have no fear of slip-ups in my life. It has been my experience that these often lead to successful accomplishments.

It is said, “The eyes are the windows of the soul.” I am comforted by these words, as it means the peace within me becomes visible, through my eyes, for all to see.

Being able to influence my fellow humans, for their benefit, by my life, is deeply satisfying.

There are those of us who find that our lives are without enough meaning. We ask ourselves questions like, what am I doing in this life? What is my life’s purpose?  

We all have the answers to our questions within us.

I’m the only one that can provide myself with the answers to these questions. The simple truth is that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all.’ The one common factor is this; we need direction that will take us to our purpose. But we need also be careful here, as ‘purpose’ in itself is not necessarily a destination. I think it’s more likely to be a journey.

Let me use one of my favorite examples: the onion (I love the red ones.) I set about peeling the outer layer to reach the skin. And what do I find? Another skin. If you’ve never peeled an onion before (you are declared a rare animal), you will find another skin. This process will continue until you have nothing!

Well, not quite nothing. You have at least accomplished your purpose; discovering the onion. Examined more closely, you have, in addition, a fair amount of skins that are useful for flavoring your cooking or salad. You have now found two purposes; discovering an onion and creating a meal supplement. Isn’t this marvelous?

We all have multiple purposes in our lives.

In essence, you may have multiple purposes in your life. You ask yourself, but how do I find even one purpose, let alone many? The answer is direction. Yes, direction, you read correctly.

I found an excellent article on direction, and for this reason, I’m handing you over to Rebecca.

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

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.

Dreams Are Good

I have a habit.

I love dreaming, not talking about the sleep kind, I’m talking about drifting off at various times in the day, whether it be whilst I’m working, eating, driving (be cautious Daydreamwith this one), eating and so on. Sometimes, embarrassingly,  I even drift off whilst in the company of family and friends. I believe the official title for this practice is, ‘day-dreaming’.

I can distinctly recall that this habit started, from the time of my best recollection of life’s experience, at seven years of age.

It got me into a lot of trouble in the classroom, my teachers said, “John is a dreamer, he is inattentive and lacks concentration”. The dinner table was much the same experience.

So where does an avid dreamer go, when they disappear off the radar and go into that mysterious place of ‘dreaming’? You may recall the lyrics from Peter Sarstedt, who asked the same question:

“But where do you go to my lovelyPeter Sarstedt
When you’re alone in your bed?
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do”

As a certified dreamer, I say ‘certified’ because a Psychiatrist diagnosed me ADD and on that day my personal dreaming gave me medical classification.

But for those who are serious about dreaming and are not put off in the slightest about medical labels, let me answer the question; where do I go to when I drift off?

I enter the fantastic world of creation. Where I am the creator of the script and direct the characters on the stage of my award winning play.

Mostly my creation has it’s outlet in writing; short stories (whilst I learn how to stretch them into novels), poetry, and reviews. But once I started to log my daily creativity in all its various forms and the flow of opportunity that moment by moment entered into my life, I realized, that creativity has no limits with me.

My conclusion is this: For all my life, I have been going into the wonderful world of creating in my mind and if this is ‘dreaming’, I don’t want it to ever stop thank you.
