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.

Contact-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

contact

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?

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!

Breathing-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Breathe

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help With Your Breathing.

Isn’t it interesting? Fear, which never gives up trying to imprison me, disappears with my breathing in and out deeply. This tells me fear is not real, breathing is!

I am an explorer, as such I have a fascinating life; discovering beautiful interesting people, places, events, and myriads of other special tangibles. Often I write about these and share them with others. Nowadays any one of us can explore without even leaving home – isn’t that wonderful?

I live in a binary world. One world is physical, the world of senses; the other ethereal, the world of Spirit. One I touch with my senses and the other, I touch in the Spirit.

I’m sure there is no possibility for me to ‘stand still’ I must move forward or by default, slide backward. I say this because I know my environment is changing quicker than my breathing.

Failings are not Failure

Failure 3
Brett Jordan Avatar of user Brett Jordan Brett Jordan @brett_jordan @brett_jordan

The overriding failure in my life was seeing my failings as a failure, when, in truth, they were simply steps on the ladder of my ultimate success.

I turned my life around, simply because it wasn’t working for me. I woke up to the fact that the reason for this was; I was living in my past.

It is said; with age comes wisdom. I’m not sure if this is true as I recall asking for wisdom, and progressively, over the years I was aware of growing in wisdom.

Wisdom has revealed to me; I can learn from my past experiences, I can plan for the future, but I must live only in this moment now.

Not only did wisdom come to me, it also brought along its close friend, adventure. How I know this is, I started to become exceptionally curious. Curious about everything not only of myself, but the world around me. This led to many of the most amazing discoveries I began to make in all the different aspects of my life.

Failure

As a writer, I constantly crawl the net for information and am daily amazed at what I discover there.

Today’s technology has provided a mammoth library; the most dynamic ever established in the history of humankind. And, it’s largely free!

Along with this new experience, I began to practice self-development in many of its different forms; the discovery of me and how I can I improve myself.

Finally I established a daily routine of meditative prayer, meditation and mindfulness.

I never knew adventure could be both so exciting and interesting.

I see my life as ever-changing, each moment of every day and yet, the direction of my journey remains constant toward refining the relationship I have, the Spirit within me and I.

Thankfully, I no longer look to my past, as that door is firmly shut, yet I plan for my future, but above all – I live to the full in this moment now, there is no place like it!
