Let Peace fill our hearts, our world, our universe

Lead me from death to Life
from falsehood to Truth.
Lead me from despair to Hope,
from fear to Trust.
Lead me from hate to Love,
from war to Peace.
Let Peace fill our hearts,
our world, our universe.

~ from the World Peace Prayer

Until it is know that true peace is within our very souls

But above all we should understand that there can never be peace between nations until it is known that true peace is within our very souls.

~ Black Elk

May that peace come to me!

The peace in the sky, the peace in mid-air,
the peace on the earth, the peace in the waters,
the peace in the plants, the peace in the forest trees,
the peace in the angels, the peace in the Beloved,
the peace in all things
the peace in peace ...
May that peace come to me!

~ from EVERY EYE BEHOLDS YOU, edited by Thomas J Craughwell

This is the way of peace

This is the way of peace:
Overcome evil with Goodness,
falsehood with Truth,
and hatred with Love.

~ Peace Pilgrim

What brings me inner peace

My life, when I look back, has not been easy. One thing I learned was that compassion, a sense of caring, thinking about others' welfare, that sort of mental attitude brings me inner peace.

~ 14th Dalai Lama

Where the peace and the healing will start

The grandmothers agree that personal healing is the essential first step toward healing the world. We need to strive for the peace of mind that has no price before we can realize peace on the planet, they say... . Deep within our hearts is where the peace and the healing will start. Surrender to Spirit. Be silent and listen to the guidance there.


You too will have peace

Over all the mountaintops is peace,
In all the treetops, scarcely a breath;
The little birds in the forest are silent.
Wait then; you, too, will have peace.

~ Goethe

If we have no peace

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

~ Mother Teresa

Peace is our eternal hope

Love is our shared truth.
Peace is our eternal hope.

~ Museum of World Religions, Taiwan

A peacemaker prays

A peacemaker prays. Prayer is the beginning and the end, the source and the fruit, the core and the content, the basis and the goal for all peacemaking. I say this without apology, because it allows me to go straight to the heart of the matter, which is that peace is a divine gift, a gift we receive in prayer.
