Idea-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Idea

Feature Photo by Mika Baumeister Upsplash.com

Never Let An Idea Go

In case an idea becomes stifled in my efforts to apply it, I place it in a corner of my mind. There it awaits an opportunity to be revived – I never let go of an idea.

I live by the rules I set myself, also those I subscribe to. I do not live by any other. When it comes to laws, I obey.

I am never selfish, because selfishness is senseless behavior. What has been given me in this life, is only on a temporary loan; how I use what I have been loaned will have eternal outcomes. I always share what I have with others.

All die, even the strong. Death awaits all humanity. But more importantly, Life awaits each of us. Offering us her hand and to enjoy ourselves to the full. We will not leave this world until our allotted fill.

Let The Years Roll On.

While my body stopped growing a long time ago, yet my mind continues to grow. There are no limits to my mind’s growth; this is a miracle. I will foster this growth until I leave the planet. I have had plenty of struggles in my life. It is these which have equipped me to take on the next fifty years of living. They will be the most magnificent time of my life. I am delighted at the prospect! I think the secret of my growing old joyfully is never counting the years I have lived.

Fire In The Heart-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Fire in Heart

Douse The Fire Of Anger In Your Heart.

Do not allow the fire of your anger to blaze for those who hurt you in the past. This fire will destroy you. Douse the flames by accepting that their hurts helped to make you the person you are. A person of determination and a will to succeed. As you accept, so peace will flow into your wounds, healing them and freeing your mind.

Exercising-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Exercising

Feature Photo by Sam Knight Upsplash.com

Exercise From The Mind

My best experience with gym sessions was the shower after. I diligently performed my exercise routine, but my mind was always elsewhere, because I disliked exercising. Yet I appreciate the value of exercising. I’ve improved on this though; having taught myself to love each movement of every exercise. I was told if I want to put more power into what I’m doing, I must focus my energy on what I’m doing.  I discovered this is working for me. Plus there is a bonus -I get more value for my gym fees. That’s not all… my mind, oh my mind, is so much sharper. I won’t tell this to the gym, they’ll up my fees!

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.

Think From Inside-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Think

Feature Photo By Belinda Fewings upsplash.com

Don’t Think Outside In.

For most of my life, I used to think outwardly. By comparison, a wise person thinks from the inside out. Thinking about events outside of me meant all events around me caused my thoughts to react. When I changed my thinking habits, I prepared myself to deal with all events in my life. If someone let me down at the last minute, I would have been angry and judgmental about that person. Now I say, I will make another arrangement, which will turn out better. My conscience is clear, and I’m at peace. I have little or no control over issues taking place outside of me. But I have every control over how I respond to these experiences when I think inwardly. How I react to these events will determine the power I have over my state of mind.

Grief-Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Grief

Feature Photo by Ann Upsplash.com

Deal With Your Grief.

Grief has been a visitor to my life more times than I can honestly say I am comfortable. I found from my childhood recollections, the night was the worst; fear was my frequent antagonist .Now, in the experience of my adult life, the same antagonist visits at all times of the day and night. My comfort was coming to know that the antagonist has only one stage on which to perform – my mind. It is my mind that carries my loss, my loneliness, my grief. I decided; the stage of my mind belongs to me, I am sole director of all productions on this stage.

The antagonist is now barred from all performances. Besides, what the antagonist never told me was: “This too shall pass, and the best is yet to come.” A wise person once said to me. Don’t push your grief away, you must deal with it. I marveled at those words, but as is so often the case, I forgot to ask how this was done. Just at that point, the words of Eckhart Tolle came to my mind, “Observe the thought, then let it go .” Whenever a memory (a thought) about the beloved ones I’ve lost, comes into my mind, I observe it (even to the point of shedding a tear, or more,) then I let it go. Not only is this practice a relief, but it has also become a pleasant experience too.

Peter’s Quote for The Day- The Sun Has NoSorrow.

Feature Photo by Kelly Sikkema Upsplash.com

The Only Trustyworth Shadow Comes From The Sun.

Have you ever stood on an early winter’s day, before the sun has reached its Zenith, and noticed you have a shadow? Did you also see, once the sun does get to its Zenith, your shadow slips away? I have often observed these interesting frolics of the sun. Did you notice something about your shadow? It moves wherever you do. I made a remarkable discovery. While my shadow is visible at certain times and other times it slips out of sight, It never leaves me. Because it is my shadow, not belonging to anyone else. But, there is a more sinister shadow that enters my life now and again. This shadow is named Sorrow. Of course, it has other names, too; depression, rejection, anxiety, fear, hopelessness, to mention just a few.

Whether the sun shines or not, this shadow is invisible. It never appears or disappears. It is an intruder on my life, although it never comes into my life uninvited. When conditions are favorable to this intruder, it taps on my mind and says, I have something to give you, and it’s entirely free.

My interest is piqued, and I respond, tell me more. As it is often said, ‘The rest is history.’

A sage counselor of mine warned me, “John be cautious, Sorrow, is not your shadow; it does not belong to you. You invite guests into your life but throw intruders out. Never entertain Sorrow; throw it out the door of your mind.”  “What shall I do then; try and be happy?” I questioned. “You can never try and be happy because happiness is a result of your state of being.” The counselor responded. “Become aware of your authentic self, the person inside you, untouched by all the spin-offs of life’s misfortunes, then happiness becomes your bedfellow, and you eject Sorrow.”

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Forgive Quickly.

Forgive

Feature Photo by Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Decide to Forgive

I have learned, mostly from painful experiences to never let my anger cause me to react and later regret how I’ve reacted. I’ve found that anger is a single-edged sword with the sharp end facing me. I am the one who pays the bigger price for harboring anger. Especially, I must not carry my anger into my sleep. My anger is one of my emotions that lacks the qualities of sound reasoning. As I enter my sleep I make a statement, I forgive, whoever or whatever has made me angry. I am aware that to forgive is simply a decision, not an emotion. In addition, it is the thought about whoever or whatever has made me angry that is the real issue. As a result, I stop entertaining that thought in my mind immediately. Then I go to sleep, and as I love sleeping, I sleep well.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-The Dandelions.

Dandelions

Feature Photo by Galina Tcarkova Upsplash.com

Learn From The Dandelions

Looking out my window, I see hundreds of Dandelion seeds blown off the mother flowers into the wind. These float as lost and unsure of which way to go, sometimes shooting upward, sometimes downward. They have no fear, though, as their Guide, the wind, knows how to lead them to their destination. The seeds yield to the way of their Guide. Shouldn’t you and I do the same and surrender to our Guide?

Strange though it may seem, It has taken many years for me to grasp this principle of yielding to my Guide. Understanding this principle was easier than trying to apply it in my life, I’m sure you know what I mean.

While I was gazing at all the little yellow sticky notes surrounding my desk area, an idea came to me. Why not put a sticky note in my mind? I realize this may sound a little off the wall, but I felt it was worth a try.

If my Guide (who lives inside me) says it works, who am I to question the issue?

The next move was how I set about placing a sticky note into my mind. A reminder that will appear at an appropriate moment, just when I need it.

Have you ever tried focusing on something often enough, and eventually, it forms an image in your mind? So this is what I did after my Guide prompted me. Hey-Ho, sticky note, here we go!

In my following morning’s meditation time, I stuck the sticky note onto my mental vision board. Since then, I consciously see the little yellow message in front of me. When I become anxious about a particular event occurring in my life, I see the sticky note in my mind. I then allow myself to yield to my Guide. This arrangement never fails me.
