Peter’s Quote of The Day

bee drinking on purple flower
  1. I am happy to know that nothing in life is ever ‘finished;’ everything in my life is in a state of evolvement. Flowers give bees nectar and pollen. Bees pollinate flowers, allowing them to reproduce. I reasoned, if this process never finishes, it simply continues. If something continues, there can never be a destination in sight. If there is no destination, it is simply a journey. In that case, I will commit to focusing on every detail of my journey, I will adapt to change and love every moment.

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.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

Peace in Chaos
  1. In a moment when I was in a state of deep depression, the load in my life was too heavy to bear, I received a powerful piece of advice from a sweet gentle lady; she said, “Whenever you are confronted with things you cannot bear then say, ‘This too shall pass and the best is yet to come.’ Keep saying it until the depression lifts.” This works – try it.

Weekly Words of Wisdom

On Laws and Rules:

I have often felt that so many messages posted on media attempt to set rules for my life.

Nearly all of my life there have been those who have set down rules for me; parents, teachers, employers, religion, just to name a few. Now here are folks on media doing the same thing!

I submitted to the slavery of following rules until one day, I discovered that I’m free to make up my own mind on anything at all. I don’t need rules to do that for me.

Now nobody sets the rules for my life but I and I design my own life.

I found out that inside of me there is a moral assessor and if I listen carefully to the assessor’s voice I can discern which rule is morally beneficial and which is not, yippee!

Aaah, I know what you thinking…. What about the law, is that not a rule?

You might be surprised to know there is a difference between laws and rules.

Laws are ratified in parliament or senate, rules arise from tradition and customs in our society.

If being a member of an organization requires me to follow their rules and it suits me to belong to that organization, I follow their rules, otherwise, I don’t join them.

Oh the sweet fragrance of freedom to decide.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

  1. “Don’t touch that plate, it’s hot,” Mother yelled. I touched the plate. She was right, it was hot. I screamed in agony, the pain seared deep into my innermost, I never slept that night. Whilst nursing my wound she said, “Those that will not listen, must feel.” I never forgot those words. Today I am a wise man who listens attentively and accepts all corrections.

Peter’s Quote of The Day

cropped-Druids-Glen-Two-1.jpg

I have suffered many pains in my long life; pains in my body, pains in my soul, but no pain seared my heart more than the pain I felt when my Son died. It is said that no parent should bury their child. I say, “I don’t know if they celebrate birthdays in heaven, but if they do, Happy Birthday Son; If I had known, I would have celebrated your birthday every day,”

Peter’s Quote of The Day

cropped-Druids-Glen-Two-1.jpg

I have learned the art of dealing with failures. Failures in my life have been a maturation process, accepting this belief causes me to grow. Secondly, if they happen consistently it could mean a ‘fork in the road,’ a possible call to change direction.
Most of the projects I undertook in my life were failures. These failures taught me, I had better enjoy the journey through my project; this way, no failure would be a complete failure. Yippee!

  1. I never run away from the upheavals in my life, choosing instead to face them head-on; this way they never pursue me. A forest fire, once abated, does not raise its fury again for some years.

Peter’s Quote for The Day

You Are Enough
  1. In my life, there are no ‘good old days.’ The word good is not in my dictionary, the word old is not definitive enough and days are simply that – days. My days are precious moments of which I say, “I love my life so much, I’m going to live forever; why bother looking backward?”The only past which interests me is people and events in history. I am fascinated by history.

Weekly Word of Wisdom

Both Sides Now

“Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air

 And feather canyons everywhere, I’ve looked at clouds that way

 But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone

 So many things I would have done, but clouds got in my way…”

From <https://www.songfacts.com/lyrics/judy-collins/both-sides-now>

As a pilot, I discovered that during daylight, the sky is always blue. All I had I had to do, was to fly above the clouds to witness it.

The true ‘clouds’ in my life are the never-ending thoughts that seem to create all manner of negatives, especially fears in my mind. The solution for me was to rise above these clouds and live in that space.

I came to understand my true identity is me, not the thoughts in my mind. The ‘thoughts in my mind’ are placed there by the Ego – the speaker. I am the listener.

The purpose of the Ego (the voice speaking thoughts in my mind) is to protect me from doing or saying things that might be harmful and from me taking unnecessary risks.

Here’s the crux of the matter; the Ego cannot discern between risk and opportunity, it simply sees everything in my life as risk!

What is most important though, 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.

Above all, I need to decide to take risks when necessary in order to seize opportunities, or else lose them.

The skill needed in my life is wise thought management; considering that thoughts become actions and these will have a future consequence, it is vital I choose correctly. If I do not conscientiously manage the moment-by-moment stream of thoughts overwhelming my mind, I become victim to many negative feelings and even depression at some level.
