Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 1997

"The simplified life is a sanctified life,
Much more calm, much less strife.
Oh, what wondrous truths are unveiled -
Projects succeed which had previously failed.
Oh, how beautiful life can be,
Beautiful simplicity."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 1997

"Life is a mixture of successes and failures. May you be encouraged by the successes and strengthened by the failures. As long as you never lose faith in God, you will be victorious over any situation you may face."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 1997

"Any praise I receive does not change me, for I pass it right along to God. I walk because God gives me strength to walk, I live because God gives me the supply to live, I speak because God gives me the words to speak. All I did was to surrender my will to God's will. My entire life has prepared me for this undertaking. This is my calling. This is my vocation. This is what I must be doing. I could not be happy doing anything else."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 1997

"There is a magic formula for resolving conflicts. It is this: Have as your objective the resolving of the conflict, not the gaining of advantage. There is a magic formula for avoiding conflicts. It is this: Be concerned that you do not offend, not that you are not offended."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 1997

"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."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 1997

"We must walk according to the highest light we have, encountering lovingly those who are out of harmony, and trying to inspire them toward a better way. Whenever you bring harmony into any unpeaceful situation, you contribute to the cause of peace. When you do something for world peace, peace among groups, peace among individuals, or your own inner peace, you improve the total peace picture."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 1997

"Fountain of Love my source is in thee --
Loving thy will my spirit is free --
Beautiful day when all of us see --
The hope of the world is Love!"

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 1997

"Who am I? It matters not that you know who I am; it is of little importance. This clay garment is one of a penniless pilgrim journeying in the name of peace. It is what you cannot see that is so very important. I am one who is propelled by the power of faith; I bathe in the light of eternal wisdom; I am sustained by the unending energy of the universe; this is who I really am."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 1997

"Never underestimate the power of a loosely knit group working for a good cause. All of us who work for peace together, all of us who pray for peace together, are a small minority, but a powerful spiritual fellowship. Our power is beyond our numbers."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 1997

"Intellectually I touched God many times as truth and emotionally I touched God as love. I touched God as goodness. I touched God as kindness. It came to me that God is a creative force, a motivating power, an over-all intelligence, an ever-present, all pervading spirit - which binds everything in the universe together and gives life to everything. That brought God close. I could not be where God is not. You are within God. God is within you."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 1997

"You have much more power when you are working for the right thing than when you are working against the wrong thing. And, of course, if the right thing is established wrong things will fade away of their own accord. Grass-roots peace work is vitally important. All who work for peace belong to a special peace fellowship - whether we work together or apart."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 1997

"Pure love is a willingness to give, without a thought of receiving anything in return. Love can save the world from nuclear destruction. Love God: turn to God with receptiveness and responsiveness. Love your fellow human beings: turn to them with friendliness and givingness. Make yourself fit to be called a child of God by living the way of love."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 1996

"Few find inner peace but this is not because they try and fail, it is because they do not try"

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 1996

"There is no glimpse of the light without walking the path. You can't get it from anyone else, nor can you give it to anyone. Just take whatever steps seem easiest for you, and as you take a few steps it will be easier for you to take a few more."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 1996

"Live in the present. Do the things that need to be done. Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold"

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 1996

"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 on seeking! If what you do has brought you inner peace, stay with what you believe is right."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 1996

"Do you know God? Do you know there is a power greater than ourselves which manifests itself within us as well as everywhere else in the universe? This I call God. Do you know what it is to know God, to have God's constant guidance, a constant awareness of God's presence? To know God is to reflect love toward all people and all creations. To know God is to feel peace within - a calmness, a serenity, an unshakeableness which enables you to face any situation. To know God is to be so filled with joy that it bubbles over and goes forth to bless the world."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 1996

"The spiritual life is the real life; all else is illusion and deception. Only those who are attached to God alone are truly free. Only those who live up to the highest light live in harmony. All who act upon their highest motivations become a power for good. It is not important that others be noticeably affected: results should never be sought or desired. Know that every right thing you do - every good word you say - every positive thought you think - has good effect."

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 1996

"I always have a feeling of awe and wonder at what God can do - using me as an instrument. I believe that anyone who is fully surrendered to God's will can be used gloriously - and will really know some things - and will probably be called self-righteous. You're called self-righteous if you are self-centered enough to think you know everything - but you may also be called self-righteous by the immature if you are God-centered enough to really know some things."
