To realize that peace, when you express it, has its source
not in you—but in Infinity.
Never trying to make peace at the cost of true
and noble principles
Not demanding that others live as you believe they should,
but living unassumingly by your own beliefs.
Recalling that the promise of peace came down to
earth from heavenly regions. It is not the gift of governments.
Reflecting that one single peace-inspired,
peace-inspiring thought holds more power for peace than
a thousand shouted slogans.
To pray daily for world peace—not as an end to strife
and discord, merely, but as the dawn of Divine Love on earth.
