Fork in The Road

When we reach a fork in the road ahead, we are forced to decide: Which road do I take? As surely as the sun will rise tomorrow, so will the fork in the road appear tomorrow. Often it appears many times in the day.

When faced with this decision, we have two choices; take the right fork, which is remaining on the same road with which we are familiar. And along this, we alternate between happiness and misery at differing times. Or do we take the left fork?. The left fork represents the road less traveled, the road of change and unfamiliarity. The road of the unknown.

At the point of confronting the fork and facing a decision, how do we decide? For the most part, we rely on our minds to make our decision. The mind, of course, has a voice. That voice is called ‘the ego.’ The ego is the voice of our bodyguard, protecting us from natural dangers, perceived failures, and potential embarrassments.

Wait, there’s more. There is within each of us another voice. The voice of God-Within-Me. This voice is always speaking. It is the voice of a true lifeguard, protecting both body and soul from any form of harm. It does not protect us from potential failures or embarrassments because it does not speak that language. Unlike the voice of the ego, G-W-M offers guidance, training, encouragement, and above all – never failing trustworthy friendship, available 24/7.

The voice of G-W-M is authentic; the voice of the ego is a bot manufactured by people and events outside you over your lifetime.

I have one life and one body in which to live this life. So I will live this life to the full, never defining myself by others and events outside of me. I will care for my life and my body. This I will do by acting on the voice of God-Within-Me.

Burdens-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Burden

Feature Photo by Jon Tyson Upsplash.com.

I used to carry burdens, some out of necessity, others were lies I believed. I found my happiness was achieved by knowing which burdens to keep carrying.

Take chances in your life, I always have. Every now and again they become golden eggs, quite without a goose, oddly enough.

Listening has led to learning for me, whereas just hearing has led to a loss.

How I dealt with issues in my life taught me more than the issues themselves.

Kiss A Frog-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Frog

Feature Photo by Wallace Heng Upsplash.com

Why Kiss a Frog?

Why kiss a frog, when Granny told you that you’ll  get warts if you do. Rather wait for a prince; there are a few around you know. Some really top-drawer ones too. I used to kiss frogs until I learned I was dependent on them for my security; my happiness. I was always disappointed in the end, because, as Granny said, I got warts. Warts of anger, jealousy, insecurity. There were quite a few others as well. At that point I learned about partnership. I used a salve called trust, respect and giving, to heal the warts of dependence. My skin cleared beautifully and guess what? Princes in their droves are queueing up at my door! I’ll never kiss a frog again.

Manage Your Life-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You Manage Your Life.

Can it be that I have a mind which is capable of practicing disciplined management? A mind that is able to manage every circumstance in my life. Accepting all as being designed to accomplish my purpose in this life. As I accomplish this, my mind is in a state of peace and happiness.

I should learn from the sea; she wills great rock formations into grains of sand, simply by washing over them. She never needs all her physical strength.

If the thoughts of my mind were as rose coloured spectacles, I would see all in the world through one kaleidoscope of glorious colour. No one different from another.

I do not see age as a measure of time, but rather as a state of attitude.

Peter’s Quote for The Day – Happiness

Happiness

Feature Photo by Artem Beliaikin Upsplash.com

I struggled to find happiness until I found me – this proved to be the better find and, guess what? – happiness appeared. How did I find myself? I was told that inside of me I have an authentic person. This person came with the package my Mother received at my conception. It has been unsullied by anything outside of its spiritual form. No events in my life have been able to touch its purity. Nothing can be added to it or taken away from it. It’s the original me. Everything else about my mind and body was touched by the events throughout my life. Many things were added to them and just as many taken away, which resulted in my fruitless search for the elusive state of ‘happiness.’ Thankfully finding me was a treasure, which I have come to love.

Sylvia Rose’s Story – Part Eight

Depression AJ 12

I know now why the Caged Bird Sings – Maya Angelou

One evening after a very heated argument with my daughter; anger in her eyes she turned to me and said, “Happiness comes from within, you create your own happiness. Get your shit together. You have to love yourself before you can possibly love anyone. Look at all your failed relationships; they didn’t last because you can’t even love yourself”!Love Yourself First

After many tears in my room, it got me thinking, she was right. How could I possibly move on with my life if there was so much inner hate? I made a decision then; I would make a concerted effort to work on my life and my self-happiness. There were places I knew exactly where I needed to start.

Why not start the series at the beginning.

What’s Love got to do with it?

 

They say “self-love is the gateway to happiness”.
