PeaceThe Secret To Having Peace On Earth

Peace can only be possible once we realize that peace is the only way toward total prosperity. The only sane solutions for our lives are peaceful peaceful solutions.

The only way for Peace to be present within Humanity is for Humanity to be present to the wellspring of Peace that is present within themselves.

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.” ~ Robert Fulghum

We have to dedicate ourselves to Peace. To feeling peaceful, to speaking peacefully, to living peacefully. The new dawning Oneness consciousness that’s emerging on the planet will enable the possibility of peace to become a full blown potential that we give birth to in our very own lifetime.

“One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news.
Many people, giving some of their time, can make history.”
Peace Pilgrim

Have you heard of the Peace Pilgrim before? She’s a women who dedicated her life to peace.

About Peace Pilgrim

From 1953 to 1981 a silver haired woman calling herself only “Peace Pilgrim” walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to “remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food.” In the course of her 28 year pilgrimage she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America.

The Secrets To Peace

The following is an inspirational piece of writing by Saskia Davis entitled the Symptoms of Inner Peace. If we look at them a little differently we can unlock the secret code of peace that lays hidden within the words. She illustrates a series of thought patterns and behaviors that if adopted can unleash the peace presence within us all.

SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE™

© 1984 Saskia Davis

A tendency to think and act spontaneously

rather than on fears based on past experience

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment

A loss of interest in judging other people

A loss of interest in judging self

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others

A loss of interest in conflict

A loss of ability to worry

Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation

Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature

Frequent attacks of smiling

An increasing tendency to let things happen
rather than to make them happen.

An increased susceptibility to love extended by others
as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it

WARNING: Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many already have been exposed; and it is possible that people, everywhere, could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

If you have some or all of the above symptoms, please be advised that your condition of inner peace may be too far advanced to be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk.

Saskia has the Symptoms of Peace available as a beautiful poster on her website check it out: http://symptomsofinnerpeace.net

By following the above “Symptoms” as Saskia calls them we can follow a path that we know works and leads to Peace. It’s what worked for her and is still working to help influence peace within the world. Even almost thirty years after her death.

Peace!

  1. Hello, Ian,
    Even though I, rather than Peace Pilgrim, wrote SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE™, I admire her so much that it is an honor to have my work confused with hers. And, even though she didn’t write it, there is still wisdom in your wise recognition of the “code of peace” “hidden” in it.

    The words that you have shared are excerpted. I would like to share with your readers the complete piece, as I wrote it, as well as to invite you to visit my website for a little more of my writing and a beautiful poster, that is available, bearing the SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE™ message. Here it is along with copyright and contact information for reprint permission.
