Spirituality-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Spirituality

Feature Picture Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Spirituality is, at the very least, a mystery. At worst, it can be slavery. While conforming to the ways of the universe is rewarding, slavery to human interpretations of spirituality can destroy my freedom and joy.

I find it fascinating; the more I discover about myself, the more there is yet to discover. Seems to be no end to this state.

Is all that matters to me right now honestly matter at all?

I never run dry on things to do.

Specific philosophy I understand in theory. Yet, it is much harder to apply to my life. Then again, how important is a philosophy?

To question is human, but in a moment of critical decision, it is not an option. In this case, immediate action is wiser.

It seems to be the road of the spiritual search is an exceedingly long one. I believe it only comes to an end in eternity, at which point, I assume, we will find out if we used our opportunities in life well enough.

Flexible-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Flexible

Feature Photo Mary Kapka Upsplash.com.

I have an ordered but flexible life. I live this lifestyle for no other reason than my personal comfort. To be flexible is to come away from slavery to orderliness.

Achievement is like a person who sees an opportunity, seizes it with both hands, placing it into the wardrobe of their mind. Then wearing it on a suitable day

I am grateful that some of the things I wished for in my ignorance, never came about in my life. I would not be writing these lines if they had.

Making use of as many opportunities as possible must surely be a gift.

I am a forward thinker and I maintain this state by constantly researching.

What is a forward thinker?

I consider myself to be a forward thinker. Although, I must admit to not being a forward planner; more of a forward dreamer. Planning is an excellent idea for those who like to set goals, strategize, and then monitor their accomplishments. I am essentially a confident person who believes in himself; Although there are times when making presentations, for instance, my knees wobble a little. Whether you are a forward planner or dreamer, it helps to see yourself accomplishing your desires. One characteristic I have is that of effectively managing my thoughts. And I believe it to be an essential ingredient to achieving your plans or dreams.

Experiences-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Experience

Feature Photo by Mark König Upsplash.com

I have had immeasurable experiences over the years of my life. And as I reflect on these I realize none of them were ever the same. As a result, they taught me, that each of my experiences, no matter how small, were of individual significance.

Accepting responsibility for all that takes place in my life has been a game-changer for me.

I marvel that I have and always will have a choice as my primary option. And the rest is a matter of follow-up.

As with the stars in the universe, so are the abundant benefits that pour into my life; most of these I experience, without being aware they have even entered my life.

The Value of Life Experience

The value of experience in life is priceless, you would agree, I’m sure. In addition, what is just as crucial is applying what you have experienced into the way of your living. And of next importance is sharing your beneficial experiences with others. Next, we must carefully check our experiences before applying them, both in our lives and the lives of others. For instance, using and sharing negative experiences can lead to unnecessary fear. If you don’t apply your experiences to the way you live, the negative ones will create fear within you, and the positive ones remain tucked away in your subconscious. As you become older, they become less retrievable and less able to be applied or shared.

Achieve-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Achieve

Feature Photo by Carolyn Christine. Upsplash.com

I set no limit on how high I aim to achieve and certainly no limit on how much I will achieve.

I am fascinated by castles, lighthouses, and memorabilia of old. The sacrifices and labors of persons that built them especially. The stories are hidden below the waves, in the masonry, and in the hearts of those who have long left us. They are lost, forever. So sad.

At seventy-something, I was staying in an old age home, when I met a beautiful lady. I made the best decision in my life; I eloped with the lady!

Have you ever noticed, blessings don’t come into your life because you pursue them? They come into your life because they want to.

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?

Time-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Time

Feature Photo by Grianghraf Upsplash.com

A Day is Coming When Time Will No Longer Be.

I am happy to know, for each of us, a day will come when time no longer exists. The word ‘stress’ will vanish along with time in that moment

I never partition events in my life as enjoyable or not enjoyable. Rather, I consider how I managed each event. This is a more illuminating approach for me.

I love to laugh and to cry. Laughing makes me feel happy, crying gives me a quick release to a sudden pent-up emotion. Both are priceless in their value and their timing.

As with most things in life, adventure comes at a cost. I have to stretch myself mentally, physically and exit my comfort zone, to experience it. A bargain at the price though.

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.

Book-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Books

Feature Photo by César Viterie Upsplash.com

A Soul In A Book

I never wrote a book to become famous or make money (the thought is enticing though.) I wrote a book to pour out my soul that others might enjoy what they read.

All my life, as sure as the sun rises, I have lived with effects. The lesser known to me were the causes. Yet, I am comfortable in my skin (it fits well) so who cares about the causes?

Never waste your time scratching around with old family documents, you never know what you might find. What if you discovered, even though your grandmother went to church every Sunday, she was a bank-robber?

I never took my grandmother too seriously when she said, “What goes around, comes around.” until it came around and bit me.

Plan-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Plan

Feature Photo Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

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.
