Possible-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Possible

I saw a little red Poppy today, standing proudly, in all its glory This flower had grown through a crack in the pavement along a busy street in a city. I asked, is this possible? It was a lesson for me; anything is possible

My dreams are not born of passivity but rather through passionate emotions for their realization.

Failure has never truly hurt me; what did hurt was not claiming back what I had lost.

The real power in my life comes from within, and I’m pleased about this, as no one can ever take it from me.

One day I saw a little red Poppy, standing proudly, in all its glory, having grown through a crack in the pavement along a busy street in a city. It was a lesson for me; nothing is impossible.

This little poppy was so beautiful; if she had have been human, I would have said she was gorgeous. There, between two dirty grey concrete slabs on a busy sidewalk, she made her home. She had grown out of the soil grouting between the slabs. The poppy had waited for moisture from the sky, and in the soil and humidity, she had nurtured herself.

We can overcome anything.

Despite all the elements against her, she had reached full maturity. How she had survived to this point could only have been a miracle. But the next day, on my way to the office, I saw she was gone. Did someone pick her and take her to an office desk, or was she trampled on? Perhaps the street sweeper pulled her up like a weed and tossed her in his bin. I have no idea.

We can rise into our glory.

I thought about her much after spending a little time of admiration in her presence. the little flower grew from a seed in a tiny amount of soil between two paving slabs. This poppy relied on elements other than herself to nurture in the dark and then blossom forth into the sunlight one day. She had no choice about the place of her birth or how she would grow and survive. Finally, she rose to face the world in all her glory and left having impacted those who saw her so briefly.

See what Carla has to say about rising above our circumstances.

My Authentic Self

My life is what I made it to be, but my life has not made me, because me is my true authentic self!

My soul made visible to all around me is my authentic self. A transparent soul is my perfect gift to the world around me.

I was enslaved to fear in its many forms and searched for freedom from this prison. One day I found freedom, alongside fear, in the one place I never before looked – both were in my mind!

From very young, I had learned fears of many sorts: failure, rejection, abandonment, and poor self-image to name a few. Unknowingly I developed a defense system against these in my mind. I made up all manner of stories about my life and who I really was. Many of these thoughts in my mind, I acted out physically and as a result, I behaved in a ‘larger-than-life’ manner.

In my adult life I surrounded myself with people and material wealth as a means of proving to myself and others that I was someone that I wasn’t; a typical ‘Walter Mitty,’ probably best described my behavior. This conduct had disastrous consequences in the end.

Many years later I was to discover the difference between who I perceived myself to be and the real me. How I saw myself was not who is really was.

The real me is a person, who is untainted by his upbringing, or his life experiences. In reality, the authentic me is a courageous, peaceful, self-assured person of integrity. He fears nothing because he has no understanding of the word, ‘fear.’

I understand, by what the Guru’s say – we all have an authentic self, deep within us – waiting to be discovered.

When I discovered my true identity, the experience was exhilarating, my true identity was absolutely authentic, it needed no burnishing! On that day I bade fear farewell and have never looked back since.
