Yesterday was once now but is no longer. Tomorrow, in a few hours, will be now. The clock and the calendars were the dreams of humans, the creator of the universe made now the only time.”

“A son said to his father, Father, your trouble is that you do not know how old you are.” The father was thoughtful for a minute and then replied, “Son, the truth be known, I hope I never find out.”

A mind that is insatiable in its curiosity, ever searching for things new, cleared of anxious and fearful thoughts becomes stable and filled with peace. When a mind is at peace it is able to reason effectively. Effective and wise reasoning is the key to a sound mind.

Faith is the implicit trust in what we are hoping for to come about.

“If there is a single key to living a life with freedom from negative stress it is the ability to manage your thoughts effectively. Using this key to open the door is the creation of a habit to manage your thoughts.”

 “Writing down a thought is a mystical process between hand and mind. Once written the thought begins an equally mysterious journey to manifestation.”

Imagine-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Experiences

Feature Photo by Samuel Wong upsplash.com

Imagine if a genie appeared in my life and offered me a choice of any artistic gift I would desire. I know I would choose writing. Above all my experiences, writing has been the most fulfilling. The freedom of sitting down and climbing into the massive world of what I can imagine. Then to start tapping on the keys, watching the words form.  Finally, watching the birth of a story. It’s heaven.

The more I experience in my life, the more my Mother’s words return to me. She must have known something.

My experience has been; it’s not how long the road is, it’s a matter of how much you enjoy the journey.

Dreams are beautiful images to live with. Who knows, the day may yet come when they cannot be disputed.

I find that many experiences I have are like a treasure hunt. After searching I discover the benefits I gain are often as good as gold.

Concentration-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

concentration

Feature Photo by Artur Shamsutdinov upsplash.com

With my life, the end is never in sight, so I’m left with a concentration on the present – whoever designed this concept is brilliant!

In my life, I have a loving, caring, uncomplaining wife, she is a gem of a woman. And I love her so.

I wonder how much of my life is divinely inspired, influenced, controlled? There appears to be a strong current flowing through it. When I swim against it, I struggle; when I release my grip, I drift with the current.

Focusing on my dreams, developing emotions for them, and seeing them in the light of now, not tomorrow, helps them come to pass.

What has been given to me in this life is a gift. As I share it with others It increases the value of what I have been given, by at least a hundred times or more.

I have a backpacker nature, and as my stay in this world is temporary, I will not shoulder any inessential loads whatsoever and will travel light.

I have been searching for ways to improve my focus and concentration, it’s not easy.

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.

Gift-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Gift

Feature Photo by Jess Bailey Upsplash.com

I consider my life a magnificent gift. In addition, the gift of being able to do what I enjoy most.

In my life, my past experiences have been my classroom. My future is a rocket to my dreams. No sweat, whichever way I look.

I am cramming at this moment – not for an exam, no. I am filling this moment with all the joy and excitement I can muster, then tomorrow, I will start afresh.

I have discovered that a relationship that is respectful and transparent is like a well-tended garden, it produces rich fruit.

Freedom-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Freedom

Creating Gives You Freedom

I am both a reader and writer. The first fires my imagination, the second satisfies my creative desire. I am a creator. I am so because I chose to use the gift which was placed in me at the time of my conception. All the while, I never knew my creative gift was asleep within in me. Creating gives me freedom. This freedom tells me that I may go, at any time, in any direction I choose.

Peter’s Quote for The Day – Creativity

Creativity

Feature Photo By Ty Williams Upsplash.com

A growth point in my life was when I was no longer concerned about my future. I began to focus on applying the gift of creativity concealed within me. I realized my creativity was choked by the weed of worry. Now I am free of concern for tomorrow, pains of yesterday, and loving my newfound gift of creativity at this moment.

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.

Weekly Word of Wisdom.

Self-Development

Little Brook

In terms of my self-development, I strive for the highest and even if I underachieve, I will still be higher than when I started.

I find self-development, for me, is not a matter of a destination to accomplishment, but more an exciting journey, where discovery is the order of every step. With each new discovery, there is a direction to new creativity within me. On this journey are the times when I create best.

I love creating, it is a powerful gift and deeply satisfying to my soul. My creativity never disappoints me, it springs forth from me like a gentle brook of crystal clear, cool water flowing down a hillside.

You ask, "Where can I find this creativity, I do not seem to have the gift of which you are talking?" It is waiting for you in the treasure box that's kept in your heart; and on a still moonlit night that shines through your bedroom window, if you look carefully, at the palm of your hand, you will find the key to the box. Open it and take your creative gift - its there, just for you.

Illusions

 

Bach 3

 

You are led

           through your lifetime

by the inner learning creature,

          the playful spiritual being

 that is your real self.

          Don’t turn away from

 possible futures

          before you’re certain you don’t have

 anything to learn from them.

        Bach You’re always free

    to change your mind and

        choose a different future, or

       a different

       Past.

 

There is

      no such thing as a problem

without a gift for you in its hands

     You seek problems,

because you need their gifts………

Richard Bach – from his glorious bestselling book, “Illusions”
