This is the way of peace: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.
~ Peace Pilgrim (1908 – 1981)
When You Find Peace
There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right for you. The criterion is: Have they brought you inner peace? If they have not, there is something wrong with them — so keep seeking! If what you do has brought you inner peace, stay with what you believe is right.
The way of peace is the way of love. Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things.
No one can find inner peace except by working, not in a self- centered way, but for the whole human family.
World peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it.
We who work for peace must not falter. We must continue to pray for peace and to act for peace in whatever way we can, we must continue to speak for peace and to live the way of peace; to inspire others, we must continue to think of peace and to know that peace is possible.
To attain inner peace you must actually give your life, not just your possessions. When you at last give your life – bringing into alignment your beliefs and the way you live then, and only then, can you begin to find inner peace.
When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.
