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.

Idiosyncrasies-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Idiosyncracy

Featured Photo by Mpumelelo Macu Upsplash.com

If my personal idiosyncrasies draw scornful thoughts and remarks from others it becomes their issue, as it will hurt them more than it does me. Idiosyncracies are flags of character, don’t you think?

Now that I am a while past the three-score and ten mark I feel I have earned the freedom to enjoy my idiosyncrasies and funky dress.

Sometimes the other side of the custom coin is greed and vice.

I think it is important for all of us to dream of wonderful things happening in our lives; equally important is to be grateful for what we have, whilst we wait for these to eventuate. We all have lives, we don’t all live them.

I found that many things that I wished for, came to pass, but then so did many of those that I feared.

Dynamic Flexibility

A snippet from a cool blog site.

We are always evolving. Our daily circumstances change all the time. Every day is different. That is why our idiosyncrasy must be approached with dynamic flexibility. We should never be too structured nor too spontaneous. Imagine a river with two banks. On one side you have structure and on the other spontaneity. Our job is to make sure the river doesn’t flood on one side. Too much structure and you become rigid. Too much spontaneity and you wind up in chaos.

In the context of a family, this means you need to adapt all the time. You have your ideal structure for the day and your perfect bookends. But then life happens. You don’t sleep well and miss your morning routine. Your daughter throws a tantrum and you lose your calm. The truth is things will never go as we want them to. We have to accept reality and see how we can navigate it. After all, as Dan Siegel says “flexibility is the hallmark of healthy beings”.

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.

Prosperity-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Prosperity

Feature Photo by Sharon McCutcheon Upsplash.com

In times of my prosperity, I should have lived frugally; But I didn’t and it cost me dearly. The cost was the loss of my prosperity.

I was raised to conform to tradition and norms, thankfully I escaped from that prison, although the road was very rocky from there – But I made it. The secret was, I never looked back (truth is, I was afraid I’d turn into a pillar of salt!)

My mother used this expression often, “Be careful.” But I later learned it is better to be wise than careful. In fact, wisdom allows me to take risks whilst being careful and she always does so at exactly the right time, every time.

I wonder if accepting opportunities into my life isn’t like a day-long drizzling. Which results in me complaining about it instead of gratefully accepting it.

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.

Heart-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Heart

Photo by Paolo Gregotti Upsplash.com

My heart is a powerful pump and also the seat of my emotion. And more than this, it gives me wise advice and guidance.

I marvel that my sub-conscientious is filled with a huge amount of beautiful creative ideas. They peep out from behind the door of my mind, waiting to be called into their being.

I never start anything with a view to seeing the end. Rather I start something with a view to tasting its development along the way. If the end was important what would I experience on reaching the end? Only ‘The End,’ of course.

For me, the beginning of any undertaking I have is the most important part; as without the beginning there will be no end, but once I have begun, I focus on enjoying every moment of the process. I do not give the end any thought. The process is the heart of the matter.

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.

Advice-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Advice

Featured Photo by Thea Upsplash.com

I have discovered, advice from others must be dealt with carefully. To listen to advice is one thing, to act on it is quite another. Advice for which I have not asked I have learned to be particularly cautious about.

I never approach anything in my life with an attitude of wariness. I much prefer to be fearless in tackling everything.

Since my youth, I have been a adventurous person. This state has led me through many painful and frightening experiences but I would do it all over again – on one condition; I know what I know now.

Many are the encounters in my life, where I never saw the pitfalls ahead of me. I simply plowed ahead oblivious of the dangers – which is just as well. Then I saw a horse, in busy traffic, with blinkers on and I realized I was not alone in my folly or my accomplishment
