Lifespan-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Lifespan

Featured Photo by Immo Wegmann upsplash.com

It is said that our lifespan is, “Four scores and ten.” This does sound like a long time, but it passes quickly for those of us that set about enjoying every moment of our lifespan.

I used to spend ages on the internet searching for ways to find more time to complete all my daily tasks. However, I did this until I learned; I can never ‘find’ time because time is an illusion. On the other hand, I am able to make space in my waking moments to accomplish a particular task, yes, but looking for time is a lost cause.

To enjoy that which I have at present is a wise state because it leads to a peaceful existence for me. However, at no extra cost, I can dream that more and much better is up ahead. This is the cherry on the top.

My Grandmother used to say, “You have to take the bitter with the sweet.” I say, do I really?  How about sweetening the bitter?

I Am Not My thoughts

I am not my body nor my mind (which includes my thoughts). Consider this; at the time of my conception, the process of developing my body and mind began. Even more than this there was a third constituent to this precious package, my spirit. My spirit is my built-in capacity to communicate with a world in myself. A world that does not operate in the realm of the senses. More than this, my spirit, unlike my body and mind is untouchable. My spirit remains unaffected by the events in my life, whatever they were. As it was in conception, my spirit’s state remains the same at my point of death. You have heard of the expression, ‘the authentic me.’ This is the authentic me; my untouched spirit, the person I really am.

Covid-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Covid



Feature Photo by Mufid Majnun upsplash.com

What I have learned so far with the Covid pandemic will work to benefit me in times to come.

I’ve always understood that a goal is something identified, scheduled, and worked on until accomplished. This is why I prefer dreams; as I think of one saying, I want that, hey-ho, it eventually materializes – so much less stress!

I never complain, because a complainer is a pain and does nothing to encourage others; constant complaints are like a dripping tap – irritating

I am sure I can be forgiven for questioning the truth of what contemporary media presents as truth.

Our Covid Experience

I can only offer my personal experience of the Covid pandemic and not a word more. Experts from all quarters have blasted the media, with their wide range of opinions and suggested solutions. And this has all been too much for my mind to absorb. Medical people advised my wife and me to have flu injections. Because of our age and their concern for our vulnerability. The practitioners were surprised we had never had one before, given our age. We accepted their advice and then, two weeks later both my wife and I went down with what we thought was flu.

Human Pin Cushions

The Guru’s confirmed it was Covid. Our recovery mercifully was quick, but we went through our quarantine all the same. At this point we both went through two Covid Jabs and a booster jab; then another flu jab. These were spread over a series of months, just to make sure. We felt like pin cushions!

Our Fortunate Circumstances

Sharing a home with our children in a large property and a top-floor suite, the extreme lockdown did not affect us too badly. The sea-front and a shopping complex were within the five-kilometer restriction limit. Our shopping and walking were easily accomplished. And both of us are grateful for our fortunate circumstances.

Fate-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Fate

Featured Photo by Tim Mossholder Upsplash.com

What fate awaits us all, when this life is done? Above all, we are certain to die, sooner or later. By the way, this is an indisputable fact;  and still, none return to tell us about their fate. I wonder why?

My life is like a beautiful, never-ending dream; And it is such a joy, I never want to wake.

The need for daily moment-to-moment faith is a non-negotiable learning curve.

I wonder if this life of mine is a training course for a very much more advanced way of living?

If I look out on my surroundings, earth, the universe, I accept my mind has to enlarge to accommodate these.

I get the feeling that our Creator keeps a journal on every persons’ life. Not so-called rights and wrongs, but their joys, sorrows, successes, heartaches. Surely it is only this information that our Creator keeps in this journal?

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.

Corner-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Corner

Feature Photo gokhunguneyhan Upsplash.com

The wonder of my life is always a matter of what is around the next corner. This is the mystery; I never know until the corner has been turned. My decision is to be content and grateful, where I am until I’ve turned the next corner.

I love the world of children, who talk to themselves, Imagine being great heroes saving the world, whilst walking to school; then sleeping like a baby when the day is done. Accordingly, you and I should be the same. With this in mind, would you agree?

Are we not all imprisoned by the daily burden of earning and spending? If every prison offers an opportunity for escape, then we too must plan to make the great escape as well.

As the CEO of my mind and body. I will make all the final decisions. Fate may bring what it will and then the three of us will seek a solution, only once fate has made a delivery and not one moment before.

There is an unlimited source of power within me. My joy and delight are, I control the power switch.

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.

Grudges-Peter’s Wisdom Snippets.

Grudge

Feature Photo by John Bussell Upsplash.com

When I’m tempted to hold grudges; It calls for rearranging the thoughts in my mind. I make very sure the important thoughts are placed on top of the others. Next, I toss the grudges into file thirteen. Hey-ho, I’m ready to go.

It has become apparent to me that accusing others is a senseless activity. This benefits neither the accuser nor the one being accused. For this reason, I accuse no one, not even myself. Because the folly of blame, justified or not, is this: It is never a solution.

It is said, when I point an accusing finger at anyone, three fingers point back at me. The fingers say, “Energy waster!”

It is both consoling and gratifying for me to respect all my fellow human beings. To treat or think of others with contempt is more damaging to me than it is to them.

I am intensely aware of perceiving something to be what it’s not. Wisdom has taught me to carefully filter my perception in order for me to see things as they really are.

Powerful-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Power

Feature Photo by Johannes Plenio Upsplash.com

My talents are no match against the daily happenings released by the universe. But the powerful light within in me is greater than that of the Universe. There is a powerful force within me. It is activated by me pushing the ‘release’ button in my mind and the result becomes visible once I act. In discovering the latent power within me, I met a lifelong partner.

With the mindset, ‘I can.’ I can not be stopped.

I notice that science and the world, in general, move forward rapidly every day. I join them and go with the flow; it stimulates my mind and growth. I feel so much better too.

My aptitude for hard work and commitment is a treasure beyond value and it has always got me by. It always will. There are two things that have been a tremendous help to me. One is my positive attitude, the other, a strong aptitude for work and consistency.

Daily I attempt to make full use of my talents. As I use them the results encourage me so much I find myself looking for more. Also interesting, with these talents, I never seem to get to the bottom of the well!

Liberty-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Liberty


Feature Photo by Patrick Schaudel Upsplash.com

Liberty is Mine

The state of my liberty exists in only one place – my mind. I alone am the keeper of that state. Irrespective of events in my life, absolutely no one can take this state from me. Liberty is mine to have.

There Have been people who have been incarcerated in prisons; even solitary confinement for lengthy periods, who claimed they were free.

If I looked at my day-to-day living as a journey of adventure, it is most likely I will accomplish my tasks. But in addition, I would enjoy a measure of excitement as well.

There were times in my life when I devoted too much time to reasoning. I don’t travel that road anymore.

Joy-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Joy

Where’s Your Joy?

I become aware I’m living when joy fills me; it’s like smelling the roses – breathtaking! (do mind the bees pleeze.) P.S. I learned, Joy cannot be found outside my body, it’s a gift from the Spirit within me.

Plan all you want, but the true gem of your creativity will only come in its ordained moment.

The test of our metal only comes with its trial in the furnace.

My mind is bursting with so many thoughts of adventure. I am on a constant journey to myriads of different places, meeting all manner of people. It’s so effortless and without any cost. It is a most relaxing holiday for me – no jet lag!
