Identity-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Identity

Feature Photo Dainis Graveris Upsplash.com

My true identity is me, not the thoughts in my mind. While the thoughts in my mind are placed there by the ego – the speaker, I am the listener. What is most important is how I respond to what I hear. If thoughts engender such things as fear, doubt, anxiety, and multitudes of other negatives, I simply observe them and then, allow them to drift out of my mind. If thoughts of love, joy, peace excitement and such fill me, I embrace them fully.

I am determined to be happy every day of my life. To say nothing of the fact that I never have to wait and see what the day brings. Additionally, I walk happily into each day irrespective of what it may bring.

This is wise thought management, considering that thoughts become actions and these will have future consequences, it is vital I choose correctly.

When I make a statement regarding myself, I put it out there for all to see; that way I had better live up to what I say.

I recall when my mind was opened up to what my life and identity were all about, there was enormous freedom that resulted; it was like a surgical lamp that shone into my innermost, and under the lamp, all the darkness vanished.

Contact-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

contact

Feature Photo by Miles Burke Upsplash.com

I’m so grateful that we have access to the many mediums of contact with one another. The benefits are enormous. Not the least being that while we may be thousands of kilometers apart, we are only a couple of keys away from contact.

I am the sole analyst of situations in my life and decidedly the only one to do something about them.

If I am overly concerned for my future, I become a slave to time. Now, as time is an illusion, I become, in truth, a slave to something that does not exist. Don’t you find that odd!

Wisdom came by me because I sought her; I did not know how to live with her when she first arrived. Now we are soulmates.

The word ‘heart’ appears more than a thousand times in the Judeo-Christian scriptures. They say that the heart is not merely a physical organ but the seat of our emotions, no less.

A considerable amount of ancient scripture refers to the word ‘heart’ as a place of emotion. We’ve all heard of the expression, ‘you broke my heart.’ We all understand in this case; the heart is not physically broken. It is emotionally damaged. Most of us will be familiar with the excitement of ‘being in love.’ In particular, how our hearts beat faster in this experience.

The heart is an organ, a powerful pump, moving our lifeline of blood around the body. Is it also a seat for our emotions? Lacking the necessary knowledge medically or scientifically, I cannot comment on this subject. But I find it of particular fascination. If the heart is not only an organ but also a source of emotion, wouldn’t this be amazing?

I found another source that feels the same as I do, and they offer a degree of scientific input. I thought you might like to read Shawn Radcliffe’s information on the subject.

Emotion-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Emotions

Feature Picture Tengyart Upsplash.com

I have discovered that every emotion I have, has its roots in the thoughts I think. The question is this: to what origin do I owe my thoughts?

The next time you feel a strong emotion, particularly an unpleasant one — try to question and excavate details surrounding its origin. Changing an unhealthy thought pattern could actually be the difference between a lifetime of needless suffering and happy fulfilling life.

A large portion of my adult life was devoted to a self-indulgent lifestyle. I lived in this manner until I discovered I had a soul and spirit, not just a body.

If a beautiful flower can rise up on a refuse dump, then how about you and me? Surely we can rise up from any circumstances?

Dreams-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Dreams

Feature Photo by Kelli Stirrett upsplash.com

I have a happy life because it’s part of my dreams being fulfilled.

Visiting my dreams daily is part of creating their reality.

I am careful not to short-change myself. As a result, I look to benefit from every opportunity which comes my way.

I was once trapped in an ideology (Other people’s thinking) and then I broke free. What a relief!

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.

Life-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Life

Feature George Pagan 111 Upsplash.com

You Get What you Need.

I have never been a person of potent strength or intellectuality; my gift is an amazing ability of adapting to the vicissitudes of my life though. I have always made use of the resources at hand in my life. It has made me confident, under all circumstances, as I accomplished best with what I’ve had available. I’m happy with that. Accepting all situations, expected or otherwise, as I moved along, proved to be the wiser choice for me. My mindset behind accepting is; ‘This too shall pass and better is coming.’ It never fails.

Weekly Words of Wisdom Touch The Stars.

Stars

Feature Photo by Allef Vinicius Upsplash.com

I once lived among a range of mountains. As a man of the city, I had never experienced such a time of peace and calm. So much so, I decided to wake up at whatever time I was awakened naturally. As a result every night I went to bed at, on or about, eight pm. (The generator was shut down at that time and there was no light.) Each morning I woke up anywhere between two and four am. I climbed out of bed, always fresh, and begun walking. This was my time to walk and pray. I cannot remember times of personal prayer as these. They were most powerful for me. But there is more… It was winter and the mornings were crisp and clear. I often lay on a small groundsheet and prayed looking up at the glorious universe with its myriads of star-filled galaxies. Then it came to me. How marvelous is the fact that the glory of the universe and its stars always fills the sky with light. (In the city, we never saw this glorious sight, because it was obscured by electric light.)

What this means is, our world is never in total darkness! Because, once we escape the city light and rise above the clouds, there is glorious light.

Whatever darkness I may experience in my life at any given time, there is a promise. My world will never be in total darkness. When the moment is dark, I remember the promise. Drawing the curtains of electric light and clouds aside – there the glorious light shines radiantly.

Weekly Words of Wisdom Love Yourself.

Love Yourself

Feature Photo By Chela B Upsplash.com #loveyourself

Love Yourself

I Love and care for myself; I believe it is my genuine expression of gratitude to my creator for giving me a beautiful body and soul. When I look in the mirror I see Sam Heughan (as he appeared in Outlanders), not the image I’m looking at. With this image of myself, I go out to conquer the world as Coeur de Lyon! I love myself with the deepest sincerity, even to the point where I live my life ‘self-lovingly’. In doing so I never live for other people.  I live for myself. Not even my creator expects me to live for Him, in Him, yes, but most definitely not for Him (what could I do for my creator?) In not living for others, I am better equipped to encourage others and help them along the road of life. The result of this is; I have a very happy life.

Decisions, Decisions.

Bexi's Decisions

Vanilla ice cream or chocolate cake? Close your eyes take a deep breath and just pick one. Go with your heart, rely on your gut. It’s really not that hard. I mean for me of course I would have chosen a slice of chocolate cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side, but some people might have found that choice quite hard.
