Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You Bend a Little.

I see fear as a recipe for failure, but the good news is, I am empowered to beat fear and start over again.

Before I can change the world I must needs change myself. Looking honestly into myself, I find plenty that needs changing.

There have been many times I have had to bend to survive, fortunately, if I bend for too long, it gives me backache.

The span of my years is not in my control. What is in my control is how I enjoy them.

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Live a Full Life

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

My life is one big Blessing, I love it! I acknowledge this in gratitude both at the beginning and end of my day. Daily, I live my life to the full.

I own no valuables that are worth stealing. The two most valuable possessions I have in my life, are my heart and my dreams, and, trust me, they are staying put.

It is said, “Life is too short.” Yet, none of us wants to grow old. A little confusing. Queen was on the right track when Freddy Mercury sang, “Who Wants to Live Forever.” Well I do, I don’t care how old I am – I just love life. How about you?

I am a free soul. As a youth, I used to water-ski naked at night – did you?

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Dying too Early.

Grey Jacket

Are You Dying Before Your Time?

Am I dying before my time? Once I commuted through traffic for an hour to arrive at my job in time for the 7.30 clock-in. Dressed in a grey jacket and tie and carrying my lunch in a briefcase, I tried to look important. Yip, I paid the price for resisting change offered to me on a plate by the universe. I never received any reward for fighting change in my life, only the prospect of growing old and dying before my time. You ask,” Is it possible to ‘die before one’s time’?”

I found out that I could quickly die before my time by dying before I died! I’m serious. Think about it; there must be a large community of souls whom we could term the ‘living dead.’ Those poor people whose daily activity is to exist. They have no hope for the future. (these are not limited to any age group.) I certainly was one of those.  In my life, the turnaround was when I was willing to accept all manner of change put across my path. Large or small. In other words, change, becoming a lifestyle for myself. Would you believe this: I have become younger?

Five Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

I have discovered that I learn so much more when I keep my mouth Shut. With my mouth shut, I am considered wise and loving.

I have a wonderful life as I take ownership of the hurdles I encounter journeying forward. These hurdles don’t belong to anyone else, they are mine. As a result, I am the master of my own destiny, having been given this mandate by God within me. I have truly found a loving life.

Each day brings new opportunities into my life and I am discovering how to identify them

Never whinge; winging is like bad breath – creates a poor image of oneself. Another thing, I never explain myself to others, it seems like a fruitless pastime to me.

I always try to put myself in other people’s shoes. Working from my shoes only limits my true perspective.I think the journey of my life is like climbing a mountain, along the climb there will be brief rests; I welcome these, but I must never linger there. To do so, would mean I will delay reaching the summit.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Forgive Quickly.

Forgive

Feature Photo by Brett Jordan Upsplash.com

Decide to Forgive

I have learned, mostly from painful experiences to never let my anger cause me to react and later regret how I’ve reacted. I’ve found that anger is a single-edged sword with the sharp end facing me. I am the one who pays the bigger price for harboring anger. Especially, I must not carry my anger into my sleep. My anger is one of my emotions that lacks the qualities of sound reasoning. As I enter my sleep I make a statement, I forgive, whoever or whatever has made me angry. I am aware that to forgive is simply a decision, not an emotion. In addition, it is the thought about whoever or whatever has made me angry that is the real issue. As a result, I stop entertaining that thought in my mind immediately. Then I go to sleep, and as I love sleeping, I sleep well.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-The Dandelions.

Dandelions

Learn From The Dandelions

Looking out my window, I see hundreds of Dandelion seeds blown off the mother flowers into the wind. These float as lost and unsure of which way to go, sometimes shooting upward, sometimes downward. They have no fear, though, as their Guide, the wind, knows how to lead them to their destination. The seeds yield to the way of their Guide. Shouldn’t you and I do the same and surrender to our Guide?

Strange though it may seem, It has taken many years for me to grasp this principle of yielding to my Guide. Understanding this principle was easier than trying to apply it in my life, I’m sure you know what I mean.

While I was gazing at all the little yellow sticky notes surrounding my desk area, an idea came to me. Why not put a sticky note in my mind? I realize this may sound a little off the wall, but I felt it was worth a try.

If my Guide (who lives inside me) says it works, who am I to question the issue?

The next move was how I set about placing a sticky note into my mind. A reminder that will appear at an appropriate moment, just when I need it.

Have you ever tried focusing on something often enough, and eventually, it forms an image in your mind? So this is what I did after my Guide prompted me. Hey-Ho, sticky note, here we go!

In my following morning’s meditation time, I stuck the sticky note onto my mental vision board. Since then, I consciously see the little yellow message in front of me. When I become anxious about a particular event occurring in my life, I see the sticky note in my mind. I then allow myself to yield to my Guide. This arrangement never fails me.

Weekly Words of Wisdom – Weather.

Weather

Feature Photo by Wim van ‘t Einde Upsplash.com

What’s it like out there today?

The country in which I live, most people I greet, respond by commenting on the weather. “It’s a good day today”, or “Bad weather we having today.” or “We are having too much rain.” to mention a few. I then realized it is futile to engage these comments for certain reasons.

The Universe is Self-Controlled

Firstly the Universe, to the best of my understanding, is a self-controlled system (no one is flicking switches or pushing buttons.) It does what is required to sustain life on Earth at the precise moment and location necessary. (I can’t speak for what happens elsewhere in the Universe, as I have no idea.) This will include seasons, temperatures, night and day, earthquakes, volcanoes, tornados, tsunamis, and so on.

The Universe performs what is necessary at the time it is needed

Secondly, who is to say that the “bad weather” I am experiencing today isn’t performing its duty of maintaining the balance of nature in my area and creating a ‘butterfly effect for weather elsewhere? (as it may have been performed on many occasions before there were meteorological records.) With this in mind, I’m convinced that all weather is firstly just perfect for what the world needs at this moment and secondly, it’s absolutely spot on time!

I Liken the Universe to my Body

The function of the universe could be likened to my body. The universal control, being my brain and the rest of my mind and body components being the galaxies that populate the vast stellar sky. Nothing happens without my brain. Its function is completely automatic. For this reason, I can safely go to sleep at night, knowing that my brain continues its work. It does so perfectly, performing necessary functions at precisely the correct time. Can you think of anything to compare with these two magnificent systems? Now I have an inkling of how the universal system works I love my days and whatever weather they bring. With this attitude, my life is uncomplicated and I am always happy.

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.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-So Much To Do.

To Do

Feature Photo by Elena Mozhvilo Upsplash.com

So Little Done.

“Tot Facienda Parum Factum.” “So much to do, so little done.” These were the last words of Cecil John Rhodes on his deathbed and the motto of my High School, Prince Edward. I have often become quite exhausted at the thought of all the things I would like to have done/would like to do in my life that remains unaccomplished. Maybe Rhodes died with the same view in his mind. The exciting thing is this. Rhodes’s many achievements and scholarships were accomplished and are still being performed today without his presence. I hope that it will work out this way for me one day. Do you feel the same way?
