Peace At The Heart Of All Things

Share it Please

Peace is brought about through a conscious unity of the personal with the inner principle of life.
pp. 445

Calm soul of all things! make it mine
To feel, amid the city's jar,
That there abides a peace of Thine,
Man did not make, and cannot mar.
Matthew Arnold

          Peace is sometimes compared to the place of calm and silence at the center of a storm.  A place of stillness and safety in the midst of chaos.  This comparison is made because such a place exists within every person.  Ernest Holmes names this place The inner principle of life.  

           It is what remains when we put aside all concerns, strip away all affectations and remove all blame.  To arrive at this place, we must take a journey which accomplishes all these things.  We must first be still, preferably in a place where disturbances are minimal.  We must then consciously shift mental gears:  we must leave behind the hectic pace and take on the idea, with graceful consideration, that Peace is at the heart of God.

Peace is at the heart of God
I am at the heart of God
The heart of God is in me
The peace of God is in my heart.
I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
