HONESTY RINGS TRUE & BRINGS PEACE

Image

You thought you were indifferent to praise for achievements which you would not yourself have counted to your credit, or that, if you should be tempted to be flattered, you would always remember that the praise far exceeded what the events justified. You thought yourself indifferent – until you felt your jealousy flare up at someone else’s naïve attempts to make himself important and your self-conceit stood exposed.

Concerning the hardness of the heart and its littleness, let me read ...

SURRENDERING OUR EGO TO A HIGHER POWER BRINGS PEACE

Our prayer to often rather than “Thy will be done”  is God help me in,  “My will be done”   and this although difficult to become aware of is whihc leads to inner calm and a true sense of purpose.

 

Difficulties should not depress or divert us. The cause that has gripped us is so great that the small weakness of individuals cannot destroy it. Therefore I ask you only one thing: do not be so worried of yourself. Free yourself from all your plans and aims. They occupy you far too mu...

STEPPING STONES TO PEACE (Joy and peace are found in loving)

Thomas Jefferson was so convinced that the pursuit of happiness was an inalienable human right that he wrote it into the Declaration of Independence and called it a self-evident truth.

Chief Tecumseh

GRATITUDE

 

Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and joy of living. And if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks, rest assured the fault is in yourself. Ascribed to Chief Tecumseh

PRAYER: A QUIET BUT ACTIVE ROAD TOWARD PEACE

Gregory of Nyssa
Gregory of Nyssa

PRAYER 

The effect of prayer is union with God; and if someone is with God, he is separated from the enemy. Through prayer we guard our chastity, control our temper, and rid ourselves of vanity. It makes us forget injuries, overcome envy, defeat injustice and makes amends for sin. Through prayer, physical well being, a happy peaceful home, and a strong well-ordered society are obtained. Prayer shields the wayfarer, protects the sleeper and gives courage to those who keep vigil. It wil...

CLIMATE CHANGE CALLS FOR UNITY
