The secret of bringing peace on earth is…

1. to remember that whatever peace you bring must begin on that little piece of earth where you live.

2. to surround yourself, wherever you go, with an aura of peacefulness. Walk consciously in that light of peace.

3. to think peace when you look into people’s eyes.

4. to realize that peace, when you express it, has its source not in you—but in Infinity.

5. never trying to make peace at the cost of true and noble principles.

6. to light a candle of kindness in your heart when you feel a need to correct someone; then, as you speak, to hold it there unwaveringly.

7. forgiving any who have ever wronged you. Indeed, if you cannot offer peace to them, how will you offer it to others whose lives have never touched yours?

8. bearing in mind that the world is, simply, what it is. And is it so small a place, that you could change it radically? Live at peace with yourself, if you would bring peace even to one other human being.

9. recalling that the promise of peace came down to earth from heavenly regions. It is not the gift of governments.

10. to place a higher priority on holding peace in your heart than on doing all those little things that daily cry out for attention.

11. not waiting for the future to bring you peace, but living peacefully this moment, then extending that peacefulness from day to day into the future.

12. to pray daily for world peace—not as an end to strife and discord, merely, but as the dawn of Divine Love on earth.

  1. Yes indeed peace on earth. I was at the lake shrine services today and the subject was world peace. Yesterday Sept 21 was world peace day. One love. One god of peace and love, That all saints and prophets and masters received illumination from. Imagine. World peace can be attained one day. God willing.

  2. If only we all would understand that God is our ruler and all we have to do is follow his commands. We are all so busy and for what? It is hard for me in today’s world. You can’t change what people don’t understand. One day maybe. Blessed be the Lord our God.
