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.

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.

~ Henry Nouwen

Inner peace is a great gift

Inner peace is a great gift. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be ourselves, even in difficult times. We let go of what is unnecessary and embrace what really matters.

~ Joseph Bernardin

"Is there enough Silence for the Word to be heard? "

PEACE be with you, dear friends! And may the reality of Peace on Earth forall of humanity shine through the veils of illusion! To become the peace we yearn for is a double gift: we are blessed with an inner freedom that enlivens and energizes our souls . . . we, in turn, bless the Soul of the world in ways we cannot measure or imagine. As our thoughts, words, and actions reflect the peace of the great Peacemaker, we begin to build the Realm of Love here on Earth, our home.

Be not afraid. You are never alone. Listen in the Silence and know that Peace abides with and within you always. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Each of us can live a life of amazing power and peace and serenity

Each of us can live a life of amazing power and peace and serenity ... if we really want to — a life in which our competing selves within are integrated. This happens through surrendering everything to attend to the Holy Within, the Voice, the Whisper, the Life in us all: steadfastly direct your mind and thought to peace throughout the day with your normal activities.

~ Stratford Caldecott

Learn to be quiet in the midst of turmoil

Learn to be quiet in the midst of turmoil,
for quietness is the end of strife and this
is the journey to peace.


May harmony live in the hearts of all people

May harmony live
in the hearts of all people.
May peace be their way,
May we all be kind and gentle,
our paths straight and true.
May Star Beings show the way
and dark clouds never stay.
May life thrive upon the land,
and peace dwell in
the hearts of humankind.

~ Ten Bears

As peacemakers working in the world, we exclude nothing

The Way is everything. It's not a particular direction or a special way of doing something; it's a circle with no outside and no inside, just the pulsating of life everywhere. It excludes nothing. Therefore, as peacemakers working in the world, we exclude nothing. We'll pick and choose according to what's appropriate for us at a certain place and a certain moment. But we won't be attached to what we choose, for everything is the Way.
