TODAY'S THEME: Finding Peace
Fix your mind inwardly between
the eyebrows (as in meditation) on
the shoreless lake of peace. Watch
the eternal circle of rippling peace
around you. The more you watch
intently, the more you will feel the
wavelets of peace spreading from
the eyebrows to the forehead,
from the forehead to the heart,
and on to every cell in your body.
Now the waters of peace are
overflowing the banks of your
body and inundating the vast
territory of your mind. The flood of
peace flows over the boundaries
of your mind and moves on in
infinite directions.

--Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
Leader and founder of Self-Realization Fellowship

There is a website posted by the National Council of Churches which you may want to
check out. It is devoted to prayers for world peace:
On the site, you may leave thoughts and prayers for peace. It's an opportunity to come
together with world and religious leaders toward a common goal
If you choose to leave a prayer on their site, please return to The Religion Network and
add the same prayer to our own
Speakpage. Let's put as many prayers for peace out
there as we can...

Many thanks to subscriber John King for alerting me to this site.
Almighty God, the Great Thumb

we cannot evade to tie any knot:

The Roaring Thunder that splits mighty

trees; the all-seeing Lord up on high who

sees even the footprints of an antelope

on a rock mass here on earth.

You are the one who does not hesitate to

respond to our call.

You are the cornerstone of peace.
You have come from God, you are a spark of His Glory; you are a
wave of that Ocean of Bliss; you will get peace only when you
again merge in Him.

--Sri Sathya Sai Baba (born 1926)
Indian spiritual leader

To be controlled by moods is to be a part of
matter. If you keep your mind on the resolve
never to lose your peace, then you can
attain godliness. Keep a secret chamber of
silence within yourself, where you will not let
moods, trials, battles or inharmony enter.
Keep out all hatred, revengefulness and
desires. In this chamber of peace God will
visit you.
--Paramahansa Yogananda

And now, the Last Word:
Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law.

--Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)
A German born in East Prussia and originally raised a Pietist (a Lutheran reform movement), Kant is regarded as the last
major philosopher of the Enlightenment.
