Path-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Path & Lighthouse

Feature Photo by William Bout

There are times when I am seeking a path. Then there are times when I have to create my path.

When the light within me pours forth, the way ahead becomes clear.

I have no fear of slip-ups in my life. It has been my experience that these often lead to successful accomplishments.

It is said, “The eyes are the windows of the soul.” I am comforted by these words, as it means the peace within me becomes visible, through my eyes, for all to see.

Being able to influence my fellow humans, for their benefit, by my life, is deeply satisfying.

There are those of us who find that our lives are without enough meaning. We ask ourselves questions like, what am I doing in this life? What is my life’s purpose?  

We all have the answers to our questions within us.

I’m the only one that can provide myself with the answers to these questions. The simple truth is that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all.’ The one common factor is this; we need direction that will take us to our purpose. But we need also be careful here, as ‘purpose’ in itself is not necessarily a destination. I think it’s more likely to be a journey.

Let me use one of my favorite examples: the onion (I love the red ones.) I set about peeling the outer layer to reach the skin. And what do I find? Another skin. If you’ve never peeled an onion before (you are declared a rare animal), you will find another skin. This process will continue until you have nothing!

Well, not quite nothing. You have at least accomplished your purpose; discovering the onion. Examined more closely, you have, in addition, a fair amount of skins that are useful for flavoring your cooking or salad. You have now found two purposes; discovering an onion and creating a meal supplement. Isn’t this marvelous?

We all have multiple purposes in our lives.

In essence, you may have multiple purposes in your life. You ask yourself, but how do I find even one purpose, let alone many? The answer is direction. Yes, direction, you read correctly.

I found an excellent article on direction, and for this reason, I’m handing you over to Rebecca.
