Joyful-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Joyful

Feature Photo by Kolby Milton Upsplash.com

My life was given to fashion as I will. Many of those around me do not have the will to make for themselves a joyful life and beg scraps instead. There are the few who sit at the captain’s table and enjoy the meal, having a joyful life. The choice is mine.

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

I see each day as absolutely brand new, with different elements flowing in from all directions. If it were not so, my life would be intensely dull, don’t you think?

Fear of what others may say or do used to rule my life. So I broke out of that prison and now I hold the say and do key. What a relief – I am a completely different person.

Book-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

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.

Peter’s Quote for The Day- The Sun Has NoSorrow.

Feature Photo by Kelly Sikkema Upsplash.com

The Only Trustyworth Shadow Comes From The Sun.

Have you ever stood on an early winter’s day, before the sun has reached its Zenith, and noticed you have a shadow? Did you also see, once the sun does get to its Zenith, your shadow slips away? I have often observed these interesting frolics of the sun. Did you notice something about your shadow? It moves wherever you do. I made a remarkable discovery. While my shadow is visible at certain times and other times it slips out of sight, It never leaves me. Because it is my shadow, not belonging to anyone else. But, there is a more sinister shadow that enters my life now and again. This shadow is named Sorrow. Of course, it has other names, too; depression, rejection, anxiety, fear, hopelessness, to mention just a few.

Whether the sun shines or not, this shadow is invisible. It never appears or disappears. It is an intruder on my life, although it never comes into my life uninvited. When conditions are favorable to this intruder, it taps on my mind and says, I have something to give you, and it’s entirely free.

My interest is piqued, and I respond, tell me more. As it is often said, ‘The rest is history.’

A sage counselor of mine warned me, “John be cautious, Sorrow, is not your shadow; it does not belong to you. You invite guests into your life but throw intruders out. Never entertain Sorrow; throw it out the door of your mind.”  “What shall I do then; try and be happy?” I questioned. “You can never try and be happy because happiness is a result of your state of being.” The counselor responded. “Become aware of your authentic self, the person inside you, untouched by all the spin-offs of life’s misfortunes, then happiness becomes your bedfellow, and you eject Sorrow.”

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?

Peter’s Quote for The Day Owl Wisdom Symbol

owl

Feature Photo by Dušan Veverkolog Upsplash.com.

The Owl is a symbol of wisdom. Would this be because she avoids the senseless chirping and chatter around her during the day? She seeks her nourishment in the stillness of the night when all others are asleep. Maybe I should take a leaf out of her book. Speak less, listen more, and then, away from the maddening crowds, nourish my soul with words of wisdom.

Peter’s Quote for The Day Crises

Storm

Feature Photo by Johannes Plenio Upsplash.com

I never fear crises in my life. The sun rises, the winds blow, rain, and snow fall. In my life crises come and crises go, but the sun will rise tomorrow. I discovered anxiety to be an absolutely fruitless and damaging activity. I have observed how many times this activity turned out to be uncalled for. An anxious sleepless night disappears with the dawn and is forgotten by midday. There has, thankfully, never been a dull moment in my life, because accepting crises makes all the difference. C’est La Vie and move on!

Peter’s Quote for The Day.

Sunrise

Feature Photo by Federico Respini Upsplash.com

It is said, “…There is nothing new under the sun…” It is also said, “The sun rises on a new day.” Is the latter a mistake? Should it not read, “The sun rises on yet another day.” Should the former not read, “There are many things occurring under the sun daily that are similar to those that took place in times gone by?” I need to give this some thought…Right, I have decided; irrespective of how many events have reoccurred in my lifetime, will not alter the fact, if I do not examine these events and check to see if my responses are not a repetition of something that has failed before, I will fail again.

Early Morning

 

I LOVE TO WATCH A SUN RISE
ACROSS THE FIELDS FAR WAY,
SPLASHES OF COLOR, BRIGHT SHADES OF RED
IT IS A SIGNAL OF A BEGINNING DAY.

THE CLOUDS MARCHING ACROSS THE SKY
FLUFFY BILLOWS OF SOFT WHITE,
THE SUN PEEKING UP OVER THE MOUNTAIN
PROMISING TO TAKE THE DARKNESS OF NIGHT.

THE FLOWERS BEGIN TO OPEN THEIR PEDALS
THEY HAVE BEEN SLEEPING OVERNIGHT,
ALL THE LOVELY SHADES OF PINK, YELLOW AND BLUE
STANDING THERE DAMP WITH MORNING DEW.

AT THE FIRST HINT OF DAYLIGHT
THE BIRDS BEGIN TO SING,
THEIR MUSIC CAN BE HEARD IN EVERY TREE
AS THEIR MELODIES BEGIN TO RING.

IT IS USUALLY VERY QUIET AT DAYBREAK
OFF IN THE DISTANCE I HEAR A ROOSTER CROW,Rooster at Sunrise
THE EARTH IS STILL SLEEPING NOT YET AWAKE
TIME TO GET UP, HE JUST WANTS US TO KNOW.

IT IS SO QUIET AND PEACEFUL
SITTING OUT UNDER A SHADE TREE,
READING THE DAILY NEWSPAPER
ENJOYING A GLASS OF ICE COLD TEA.

I WATCH A LITTLE LADY BUG
AS SHE TRAVELS IN A HURRY,
ACROSS A LEAF GOING REALLY NOWHERE
SHE DOESN’T SEEN TO MIND OR HAVE A WORRY.

A BUTTERFLY LANDS ON A MORNING GLORY
HIS LITTLE WINGS DIP UP AND DOWN,
SOON HE WILL LEAVE THAT FLOWER
AND SAIL TO OTHERS ALL AROUND.

A BUMBLE BEE HAS ALSO BEEN VISITING
HE OFTEN COMES QUITE NEAR,
HIS LITTLE WINGS MAKE A LOVELY SOUND
IF YOU LISTEN – YOU CAN HEAR.

I WISH EARLY MORNING LASTED LONGER
BUT I MUST GET BUSY AND START MY DAY,
BEFORE I KNOW IT THE SUN WILL START TO SINK
AND ON MY PILLOW, MY HEAD I WILL LAY.

BUT FOR NOW I WILL LINGER A FEW MOMENTS LONGER
NO NEED TO RUSH THE MORNING AWAY,
WON’T BE LONG UNTIL SPRING WILL TURN INTO WINTER
AND OUT HERE IN MY YARD I WON’T BE ABLE TO STAY.
