In Pursuit of Peace

What is peace? I may tell you what peace is in many words, but all descriptions will fail and you will not understand those words until you have felt peace in the heart within! Like love, peace must be felt!

Throughout the centuries, nations have sought many ways to attain peace. Many methods have they tried—force, aggression—yes! They have claimed that they have fought wars to bring about peace! They have also tried negotiations, conferences, treaties and ‘peace’ talks. They have had a League of Nations in the past, they have United Nations now. But where, O where is peace…true peace?

I believe peace must have three dimensions: peace within our own selves; peace among the nations; and peace with nature!

One way of attaining peace of mind, is to sit in silence everyday for ten to fifteen minutes, and explain this one thing to yourself: “Whatever happens, happens according to the will of God. If something happens contrary to my desires, it has happened according to God’s will. Therefore, there must be some good in it for me.” Explain this to your mind everyday. “O mind, why is it that you lose your peace?”
