Peter’s Quote for The Day-You Never Too Late.

Too Late

Feature Photo by Aron Visuals Upsplash.com

It’s OK you’re Not Late.

I have come to understand that absolutely nothing is ever, ‘too late’ but rather, everything is always on time. There are some ancient wise words that say: “Everything on earth has its own time and its own season. There is a time for birth and death, planting and reaping…” I filtered this through to my own life and recalled how many times I have failed to take hold of opportunities; failed to respond to the calls of others and the list goes on. Does this happen in your life? I am teaching myself to respond to what I am easily able to do and to accept that which I’m not so easily able to deal with at the time. Above all, to be comfortable in what I am in a position to do or not to at any given moment. The result is that everything I do is just in time and I’m never too late.

Bend

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You Bend a Little.

I see fear as a recipe for failure, but the good news is, I am empowered to beat fear and start over again.

Before I can change the world I must needs change myself. Looking honestly into myself, I find plenty that needs changing.

There have been many times I have had to bend to survive, fortunately, if I bend for too long, it gives me backache.

The span of my years is not in my control. What is in my control is how I enjoy them.

Famous Author Quotes-JK Rowling on Failed.

Failure

Feature Photo By Brett Jordan Upsplash.com.

“It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.

― J.K. Rowling

It seems that from the time I started my first job, I always worked dreaming of something better. I was never satisfied. It took me about seven years to build up the courage to start my very first business. After two years the business failed. This was the first of four businesses, in all, that failed. I was a broken man but managed to find an activity that I really loved. It was this that saved me and set me on the road to a wonderful life. I can say for certain, I have enjoyed my life, every moment, even the heartbreaking times. I can state, I love the life I have lived and the best is yet to come.

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Live a Full Life

Water Ski

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

My life is one big Blessing, I love it! I acknowledge this in gratitude both at the beginning and end of my day. Daily, I live my life to the full.

I own no valuables that are worth stealing. The two most valuable possessions I have in my life, are my heart and my dreams, and, trust me, they are staying put.

It is said, “Life is too short.” Yet, none of us wants to grow old. A little confusing. Queen was on the right track when Freddy Mercury sang, “Who Wants to Live Forever.” Well I do, I don’t care how old I am – I just love life. How about you?

I am a free soul. As a youth, I used to water-ski naked at night – did you?

Peter’s Quote for The Day-Choose Light.

Light

Feature Photo by Allen Cai Upsplash.com

Live in The Light

All things which grow, seek the light, on finding it they flourish, whilst all things begin growing in the dark, there, they will never flourish. I look for light always. In the light I flourish, in the dark, I wither. As a child, I had terrible fears when I awoke in the dark, but with the light of the dawn, the dark and my fears disappeared. Now I say, ‘It’s best to live in the light.

Weekly Words of Wisdom – Little Irritants.

Now

Feature Photo By Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Little Irritants.

The other day I woke up to the fact that I allow too many little irritants to spoil the state of peace in my mind. You know the kind; the little Yorkie yapping through the day unceasingly (or so it seems.) The teens next door alternating between hip-hop and gaming shrieks at max volume. The construction team over the road taking turns on a jackhammer, to the strains of Elvis’s, “I’m All Shook Up.” (I’m exaggerating.) In all this external chaos, I reflected on an ancient scripture; “Let us use the little foxes; you know the ones that nibble away at our grapevines…” (My translation.)

Be patient, I’m getting to my point.

The vine is the state of my peaceful mind. The little foxes are the external disruptions to my mind and finally, stolen fruits, are the reaction to my thoughts. These will lead to hostile emotions arising from my thoughts. The result is little irritants spoil the peace of my mind.

For the most part, I can do nothing about the irritants.

But I am able to take charge of my thoughts and the way I do this is; for a brief moment, I consider the thoughts that are arising in my mind, not the irritants, just thoughts about them. I let the thoughts leave my space. Now I’m living in a space that is ‘real.’ This allows me to focus on my life as it is and what I’m about doing now. My thoughts are not entangled with the past or engrossed in the future. When I began reading the words of Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now,” I found it difficult to grasp the concept at first, with perseverance, I eventually did. More importantly, I now began to apply it.

As a person, I was haunted by many aspects of my childhood, youth, and later adulthood.

Later I created many things in my life, of which I was not proud. These too, regularly pierced through my mind. Unawares, I was nurturing thoughts that would create feelings within me. Dependent on the severity and frequency of these feelings, they would result in disastrous changes throughout my life. Taking the advice of Eckhart Tolle I made a commitment to stop nurturing toxic thoughts, trading them for concentrating on what is happening now in my life. I no longer entertain backward thinking, I leave that to the past. Living in the now moment is a timeless fact.

“Who buries their heart in the sands of the past, faces barrenness in their future.”

I forget my past. I plan my future, but do not live there.

Weekly Words of Wisdom – Now Power.

Now Power

Who buries their heart in the sands of the past, faces barrenness in their future. At this moment now, time does not exist and I live in a space that is ‘real.’ This allows me to focus on my life as it is and what I’m about doing now. My thoughts are not entangled with the past or engrossed in the future. Living in the now moment is a timeless fact. When I began reading the words of Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now” I could not grasp the concept, although I eventually did. More importantly, I now needed to apply it.
