peace

Every word that has been spoken about peace and love will be recognized like a bright light

Then Silence
will gather all the words
within itself,
the graves will return
in the ocean of eternity.

And every word
that has been spoken
about peace and love
will be recognized
like a bright light
by that spirit
that has come to rest.

~ from "A Call to Silence Foundation" Marcel Messing

Peace is a longing that connects the human family in a common depth of soul

PEACE is very meaning of the word Islam. When its three operative consonants, S, L, and M, are combined with a variety of vowels, they spell "peace" across the whole spectrum of human speech. SALEM is the word for peace in English. SHALOM means peace in Hebrew, while SALAAH is peace in Arabic. (In the native language of Gandhi, the word for peace is SHANTI). Peace is a longing that connects the human family in a common depth of soul. The hope for peace surges in the collective unconscious. It is for the generations now living to bring this hope to consciousness and build the structures that will give it operative vitality.

Let Peace fill our heart, 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 heart, our world, our universe ...

~ from WORLD PEACE PRAYER by Fellowship of Reconciliation

The Peace of God resides deep within each individual

The Peace of God resides deep within each individual, given to each spiritual being at its creation, to remain in their inner consciousness structure forever. No one can give it to you, no one can take it away. If you have not done so already, please give yourself the priceless gift of inner silence, That silence is the way that the very atoms of energy and love that surround you and are part of God can enter and give you the inner peace that you hunger for with all of your heart and mind.

~ from THE GOLDEN PATH by Ruth Ryden

If we have no peace

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten: we belong to one another.

~ by Mother Teresa

Peace dwells in the heart of silence

PEACE dwells in the heart of silence.
Listen. Heed the Voice of Peace ...
Radiate the Peace engendered by Love!

Peacemakekers recognize their faults

Peacemakers are called the children of God, because that is precisely what they are: the conscious offspring of the creator. Peacemakers are men and women who have adventured down the avenues of healing and caught the current of their divine identity. Peacemakers have internalized the seven steps to wholeness outlined in the Beatitudes:

They recognize their faults and long for what they need to change; they are gentle, unpretentious and nonviolent; they pursue right livelihood and have compassion for others; their motivation is pure as they offer unconditional love to all.

~ from TERRA CHRISTA by Ken Carey

May 2000 (Vol. XIII, No. 5)

BLESSINGS of a peace-filled heart be with you! For PEACE is a double blessing radiating inward as a life-giving force and radiating outward as gift to the world. Those silent spaces of the heart is where peace dwells and grows.

Divine peace has an inner and outer manifestation

Divine peace has an inner and outer manifestation. Exteriorly, it manifests as fire, as zeal, as transformation, as death and rebirth. Interiorly, it manifests as silence, as knowledge, as joy, as union with the Beloved: a joy of union that is capable of communicating itself to others.

~ from "Zeal In Detachment" by Stratford Caldecott in "Parabola", Fall 1996

Peace pilgrim

One little person giving all of her time to peace makes news. Many people giving some of their time to peace can make history.
