Fork in The Road

When we reach a fork in the road ahead, we are forced to decide: Which road do I take? As surely as the sun will rise tomorrow, so will the fork in the road appear tomorrow. Often it appears many times in the day.

When faced with this decision, we have two choices; take the right fork, which is remaining on the same road with which we are familiar. And along this, we alternate between happiness and misery at differing times. Or do we take the left fork?. The left fork represents the road less traveled, the road of change and unfamiliarity. The road of the unknown.

At the point of confronting the fork and facing a decision, how do we decide? For the most part, we rely on our minds to make our decision. The mind, of course, has a voice. That voice is called ‘the ego.’ The ego is the voice of our bodyguard, protecting us from natural dangers, perceived failures, and potential embarrassments.

Wait, there’s more. There is within each of us another voice. The voice of God-Within-Me. This voice is always speaking. It is the voice of a true lifeguard, protecting both body and soul from any form of harm. It does not protect us from potential failures or embarrassments because it does not speak that language. Unlike the voice of the ego, G-W-M offers guidance, training, encouragement, and above all – never failing trustworthy friendship, available 24/7.

The voice of G-W-M is authentic; the voice of the ego is a bot manufactured by people and events outside you over your lifetime.

I have one life and one body in which to live this life. So I will live this life to the full, never defining myself by others and events outside of me. I will care for my life and my body. This I will do by acting on the voice of God-Within-Me.

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.

Contact-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

contact

Feature Photo by Miles Burke Upsplash.com

I’m so grateful that we have access to the many mediums of contact with one another. The benefits are enormous. Not the least being that while we may be thousands of kilometers apart, we are only a couple of keys away from contact.

I am the sole analyst of situations in my life and decidedly the only one to do something about them.

If I am overly concerned for my future, I become a slave to time. Now, as time is an illusion, I become, in truth, a slave to something that does not exist. Don’t you find that odd!

Wisdom came by me because I sought her; I did not know how to live with her when she first arrived. Now we are soulmates.

The word ‘heart’ appears more than a thousand times in the Judeo-Christian scriptures. They say that the heart is not merely a physical organ but the seat of our emotions, no less.

A considerable amount of ancient scripture refers to the word ‘heart’ as a place of emotion. We’ve all heard of the expression, ‘you broke my heart.’ We all understand in this case; the heart is not physically broken. It is emotionally damaged. Most of us will be familiar with the excitement of ‘being in love.’ In particular, how our hearts beat faster in this experience.

The heart is an organ, a powerful pump, moving our lifeline of blood around the body. Is it also a seat for our emotions? Lacking the necessary knowledge medically or scientifically, I cannot comment on this subject. But I find it of particular fascination. If the heart is not only an organ but also a source of emotion, wouldn’t this be amazing?

I found another source that feels the same as I do, and they offer a degree of scientific input. I thought you might like to read Shawn Radcliffe’s information on the subject.

Emotion-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Emotions

Feature Picture Tengyart Upsplash.com

I have discovered that every emotion I have, has its roots in the thoughts I think. The question is this: to what origin do I owe my thoughts?

The next time you feel a strong emotion, particularly an unpleasant one — try to question and excavate details surrounding its origin. Changing an unhealthy thought pattern could actually be the difference between a lifetime of needless suffering and happy fulfilling life.

A large portion of my adult life was devoted to a self-indulgent lifestyle. I lived in this manner until I discovered I had a soul and spirit, not just a body.

If a beautiful flower can rise up on a refuse dump, then how about you and me? Surely we can rise up from any circumstances?

Healed-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

healed

Feature Photo by Diana Polekhina Upsplash.com

Have Your Body and Soul Been Healed ?

As a young boy arriving home from school upset, my Grandmother would run a hot bath with Eucalyptus Oil sprinkled in it. I was allowed to submerge into the tub for ten minutes. This healed the wounds of my day. I think our world should have more Grandmothers like mine. Now I find ten minutes in my day to be still and allow my body and soul to be healed.

I think it takes a great deal of courage to live by what I consider to be my belief in something or someone.

What I dream of at this moment, is my hope of its appearance in my life tomorrow.

One of my biggest hurdles to putting my creations, “out there” is my fear of rejection. This is so sad!

If I am considered to be living in a dream world, I ask, What other option is there? So-called reality?

Book-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Books

A Soul In A Book

I never wrote a book to become famous or make money (the thought is enticing though.) I wrote a book to pour out my soul that others might enjoy what they read.

All my life, as sure as the sun rises, I have lived with effects. The lesser known to me were the causes. Yet, I am comfortable in my skin (it fits well) so who cares about the causes?

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?

I never took my grandmother too seriously when she said, “What goes around, comes around.” until it came around and bit me.

Weekly Words of Wisdom – Are You Good.

Good

Feature Photo by Marija Zaric Upsplash.com

Are You Good?

It is said, “Only the good die young.” I didn’t die young, so on the premise of this statement, I’m not good. But I’m OK with that. Being ‘not Good.’ that is. I have no idea what the word ‘good’ actually means as it is not in my dictionary. Seriously though, I read that over some 475 years, life expectancy has grown from 34 to 81 years in England. So what does this tell me, there must less ‘good’ people in England today? By the way, I have a deal with my creator; to live up to 120 years and die in sound body and mind. People ask, “Who wants to live to be that old?” I reply, “me.” “Why?” they question. “Because I love my life on this earth and I want to experience as much more of it as possible,” I reply. “Come to think of it, you don’t look your eighty years; you don’t look a day older than sixty, to what do you attribute this condition?” They continue. “My soul is well and so my body follows suit,” I respond.

Peter’s Quote for The Day – My Soul Garden

Flowers The secret Garden

Feature Photo By Eileen https://www.ateileensfeat

I am grateful that every moment and every event in my life has planted a flower in my soul. Sometimes robust and flamboyant, others frail and modest. Some will be weeds. All bestowing character to the garden of my being. Because I am a lover of beautiful gardens (especially the one in my soul) I do what all loving gardeners do. I weed my garden, sometimes daily. I shift plants around, making certain that each gets a fair share of the sun. Making sure the little modest ones are not overshadowed by the more flamboyant and robust. Surely, you would love my garden as much as I do?

Weekly Words of Wisdom Love Yourself.

Love Yourself

Feature Photo By Chela B Upsplash.com #loveyourself

Love Yourself

I Love and care for myself; I believe it is my genuine expression of gratitude to my creator for giving me a beautiful body and soul. When I look in the mirror I see Sam Heughan (as he appeared in Outlanders), not the image I’m looking at. With this image of myself, I go out to conquer the world as Coeur de Lyon! I love myself with the deepest sincerity, even to the point where I live my life ‘self-lovingly’. In doing so I never live for other people.  I live for myself. Not even my creator expects me to live for Him, in Him, yes, but most definitely not for Him (what could I do for my creator?) In not living for others, I am better equipped to encourage others and help them along the road of life. The result of this is; I have a very happy life.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

  1. I am grateful my family is a record of where I come from. They will be a record of who I was, once I have left this earth, but most of all, they are the true friends I enjoy in this moment now.
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 an 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 blogsite 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.

Save this link: https://sirpeterjames.com then click on “Peter’s Quote for the Day.”
