Christmas-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Cracker

Sometimes messages of encouragement come to us with a bang. Consider the Christmas cracker; you pull, it bangs and hey-ho, out pops an encouraging message on a little piece of paper! Happy Christmas

Opportunities always seem to arrive tomorrow for me. This is quite beneficial, as tomorrow the fog would have lifted from my eyes and I will see them clearly.

I’m shocked to discover how many habits I have created in my life. Then I read that, thoughts are the mothers of habits. Little wonder I have so many habits, I must be an overthinker.

Never waste your time scratching around with old family documents, you never know what you might find. What if you discovered, even though your grandmother went to church every Sunday, she was a bank robber? Old documents are like old thoughts; best left in the attic.

Firstly, I find ‘To-Do’ lists work very well for me, keeping my life in a state of organized ‘chaos.’ Next, and just as necessary, I prioritize my list and do what is important first, then the urgent. I discovered, not all urgent matters are important. Now, this system really works for me. The given is, will I discipline myself to apply it?

Mountains-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Mountains

Feature Photo Willian Justen upsplash.com

I have read, “Faith can move mountains.” The question I have is this, “Once moved, where do I relocate them? Most importantly I have discovered, moving mountains is one thing, relocating them is another.

I changed things in my life after a very meaningful lesson. To start with, every relationship I experienced over the years irrespective of whether it was business, life partnership, or friendships, needed support. Most importantly, they had to be founded on three pillars: Love, transparency, and respect. However, I must explain the word love and the context in which I use the word: Agape (Greek) means the love we have for our fellow humans. Fileo (Greek) means the love we have for parents, children, and siblings. Eros (Greek) Means romantic love.

We are made of all those who have built and broken us. (Atticus Finch Quote from To Kill a Mockingbird.) What if we are not so much built and broken by others as we are built and broken by how we respond to their building and breaking of us?

Master-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Master

Feature Photo by Philippe Oursel upsplash.com

I am a man who has a ship full of dreams and I am the wise master of this ship. Moreover, because I am the master I can steer my dreams where I will.

The principle of giving results in receiving, accordingly I shall give my life all I have to give. As a result, I will receive a state of abundant living.

My heart is filled with a treasure of enormous wealth. So no one will ever be able to take this away from me. While I live my heart remains within me.

The wisdom I have accumulated in my life took a long time to fill me. Now I have it, it is here to stay.

Although I experience daily changes, my goal is unchanging. To live a wonderful life, and this to the full.

My long life, like a deep well, has much to draw from, and it’s always cool and fresh to the taste.

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?

Concentration-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

concentration

Feature Photo by Artur Shamsutdinov upsplash.com

With my life, the end is never in sight, so I’m left with a concentration on the present – whoever designed this concept is brilliant!

In my life, I have a loving, caring, uncomplaining wife, she is a gem of a woman. And I love her so.

I wonder how much of my life is divinely inspired, influenced, controlled? There appears to be a strong current flowing through it. When I swim against it, I struggle; when I release my grip, I drift with the current.

Focusing on my dreams, developing emotions for them, and seeing them in the light of now, not tomorrow, helps them come to pass.

What has been given to me in this life is a gift. As I share it with others It increases the value of what I have been given, by at least a hundred times or more.

I have a backpacker nature, and as my stay in this world is temporary, I will not shoulder any inessential loads whatsoever and will travel light.

I have been searching for ways to improve my focus and concentration, it’s not easy.

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.

Spirituality-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Spirituality

Feature Picture Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Spirituality is, at the very least, a mystery. At worst, it can be slavery. While conforming to the ways of the universe is rewarding, slavery to human interpretations of spirituality can destroy my freedom and joy.

I find it fascinating; the more I discover about myself, the more there is yet to discover. Seems to be no end to this state.

Is all that matters to me right now honestly matter at all?

I never run dry on things to do.

Specific philosophy I understand in theory. Yet, it is much harder to apply to my life. Then again, how important is a philosophy?

To question is human, but in a moment of critical decision, it is not an option. In this case, immediate action is wiser.

It seems to be the road of the spiritual search is an exceedingly long one. I believe it only comes to an end in eternity, at which point, I assume, we will find out if we used our opportunities in life well enough.

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.

Experiences-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Experience

Feature Photo by Mark König Upsplash.com

I have had immeasurable experiences over the years of my life. And as I reflect on these I realize none of them were ever the same. As a result, they taught me, that each of my experiences, no matter how small, were of individual significance.

Accepting responsibility for all that takes place in my life has been a game-changer for me.

I marvel that I have and always will have a choice as my primary option. And the rest is a matter of follow-up.

As with the stars in the universe, so are the abundant benefits that pour into my life; most of these I experience, without being aware they have even entered my life.

The Value of Life Experience

The value of experience in life is priceless, you would agree, I’m sure. In addition, what is just as crucial is applying what you have experienced into the way of your living. And of next importance is sharing your beneficial experiences with others. Next, we must carefully check our experiences before applying them, both in our lives and the lives of others. For instance, using and sharing negative experiences can lead to unnecessary fear. If you don’t apply your experiences to the way you live, the negative ones will create fear within you, and the positive ones remain tucked away in your subconscious. As you become older, they become less retrievable and less able to be applied or shared.
