I Fly Solo-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

First Solo

Feature Image Credit

On this earth I will live life to the full, yet will I take my wings and fly high as well. As a result, the higher, I fly the more I can see. Above all, seeing is the fruit of believing.

I see miracles daily, They are all around me in the most eye-opening forms. As a consequence, the moment I gained awareness, my eyes were opened to many miracles in my life.

I can never say that I know someone or something for certain, not even myself.

My dreams are important to my onward journey. Above all, I need to keep them before my eyes; I need to sharpen my focus. As I focus, I generate energy into my dreams and cause them to materialize. The fact is that focusing requires a certain skill and I work on this skill daily. The benefits are encouraging.

I was recently given an assignment; to study Ogden Nash and then using his style, write a few poems of my own. This was a first for me and as a result, I wrote rather a long piece (which I never presented for the assignment) just to share with you, a special event in my life:

My First Solo.

Once I was earthbound and rather sad.

I was not happy with this, it made me quite mad.

One day I saw an airplane alighting into the sky.

She seemed like a feather as she climbed up high

I said to me, this is where you should be

In that plane, flying, that will be me.

I found an instructor, who beckoned me to follow

Delighted, in his steps I was aglow.

High into the sky, we alighted

And I became exceedingly frighted.

No matter said he, take the controls and see

That before long a pilot you shall be.

One day he climbed out of the plane

Telling me to fly, I said you’re insane

I was terrified you see

To fly all by myself, just me!

The plane wanted to fly

Being much afraid I could not see why

She leaped off the runway

As I felt my tummy heading toward my lower-way

My fears were then allayed

As my instructions I obeyed

And soon I was sailing in the still blue

The plane was happy too.

I was yelling, I can fly, I can fly

As free as a bird through the sky

Then a voice told me it was time to land

To herald my arrival I expected a band

As her wheels kissed the tarmac

I said, now you are a pilot; pat on the back.

Famous Author Quotes-Mesa Selimonic on Love Hurts

“Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that doesn’t hurt.”

Mesa Selimovic, Serbian Author.

Eros Love

I discovered a rather interesting thing about love. All through the ages, there have been romantic stories, books, poems, and movies.  This is what I would call romantic love and it describes the physical, sensual intimacy between lovers. It expresses the sexual, the romantic attraction between two people. It has its origins in the Mythological Greek God, Eros. He was the god of love, sexual desire, physical attraction, and physical love.

Storge Love

There is another kind of love, once again from a Greek word; Storge. This is the love that is shared by parents for children and children for parents, siblings for each other.

Philia Love

Philia is a word, also of Greek origin that describes the love between friends.

Agape Love

Lastly, Agape love, describing a Godly love we have for our fellow humans.

I can imagine, in the realm of the Eros love, we might experience feelings of hurt. It can be the cause of rejection, envy, jealousy, and many others. The reason being that this love type is conditionally based. “I will love you if you love me in return.” Or,” I will give you if you give me in return.”

Philia is the love type that we are born into. Parents, children, siblings are held into a type of, “Blood is thicker than water” situation. It has been my experience that hurt, envy, jealousy, and rejection could be experienced in this love type.

Agape is unconditional loving. “You are my enemy, but I love you.” “I give to you freely, without expecting anything in return.”

All other kinds of love are capable of hurting. Agape alone never hurts.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

wisdom 2
  1. I Since childhood, I have always had a n excellent attitude (Maybe I was born this way.) Better still, As I grew older, I became known for my enthusiasm; now that I am older still I have become wiser – I  must tell you, the combination of attitude, enthusiasm and wisdom is nothing short of explosive!

Peter James

I love each new day; the advantage of waking up and finding I’m alive, and the fact that once again, opportunity calls from outside the covers. Its so worthwhile waking and having gratitude for being alive; because one day I will wake up and find I’m dead! On that day I shan’t bother to find out what’s outside the covers – I will know.

I am Author, Writer, and Blogger.

Whilst the titles might make me sound important, I am not. I love people and have a strong passion to encourage people and help them to love themselves.

Writing and publishing on my blog site is simply what I do.

What do I write? Over the years I have published, short stories, Inspirational articles, poems, reviews of books, movies, restaurants, and more.

Although of late I have focused more on ‘Words of Wisdom’ articles that invite people to challenge themselves as far as their self-development is concerned and these I publish weekly, under the title, “Weekly Words of Wisdom” on my blogsite: http://www.sirpeterjames.com.

Having had an excellent response to the “Weekly Words of Wisdom,” it makes sense to publish a daily, “Peter’s Quote for The Day,” in the hopes that you will, not only read it, but let the words be drawn into your very soul and finally, and most important of all – you will apply them to your life.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Gold

Feature Photo by Anne Nygård Upsplash.com.

  1. In times gone by I hated any change in my life that took me away from what I enjoyed. Now when change crosses my path I eagerly look for how it could possibly benefit me. I keep looking until I find my pot ‘o gold!

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Mountain

Feature Photo by Simon Fitall Upsplash.com

  1. I have breathed the rarified air of mountain tops with their never-ending panorama, yet, it was always the valleys that gave me nurture. The sights from the mountain tops, I have long forgotten, but the nurturing of the valleys, I shall always hold in my heart. Those moments, although never easy, have had long-lasting fruits .

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Rain
  1. I always look for climate, weather is what I get! I found out climate is predictable, weather is not. I know this because whenever I carry my brolly, it never rains, when I don’t, it rains! For all this I never complain about the rain; I was raised in a dry hot land; we prayed for rain every day, to save the withering crops in a burning hot, parched soil.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

wounds
  1. I gathered many wounds along life’s road, some I soon forgot, others stayed for a long time, but each one helped to build the me that I am today. On realizing this, I thanked all the wounds, in addition, those that created them and, over time, forgot all.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Lion
  1. I am a Lion by star sign. In my younger years, I took the title, “King of The Jungle” too seriously and began to take risks. Like the lion, who one day, away from his family pack, ran into seven Hyena, the hyena because of their number, decided to make him their next meal. He wisely opted for flight rather than fight and because of his superior speed managed to escape, but not without losing some flesh in the flight. The moral of this story is; it’s OK to be king and take risks, but be ready to part with some flesh along the way.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Bird and Fruit
  1. Unfailingly I adapt to where I am, who I’m with, and what is happening. As much of my life’s events are circumstantial, its easier. Nature has taught me much about needing adaptability and flexibility at all times. Everything in nature yields in its season. Everything grows in its season, everything dies in its season. There is not even a whisper of complaint – ever.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Angel
  1. For years I dreamed of writing and could not find a way to achieve this dream; try though I may, I never succeeded. I cried out often in my heart, but to no avail. One day, ever so gently an Angel said to me, “You must start writing now.” I obeyed and was amazed at how ideas poured out of my mind as I tapped the keyboard; two years later I published my first book!

I learned a valuable lesson from this experience:

If your heart does not cry out,

your dreams do not come about,

…and neither do angels sprout.
