Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2007

“The positive approach inspires; the negative approach makes angry. When you make people angry, they act in accordance with their baser instincts, often violently and irrationally. When you inspire people, they act in accordance with their higher instincts, sensibly and rationally. Also, anger is transient, whereas inspiration sometimes has a life-long effect.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 132


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2007

“When you feel the need for a spiritual lift, try getting to bed early and get up early to have a quiet time at dawn. Then carry the serene 'in tune' feeling that comes to you into your day, no matter what you may be doing.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 77


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2007

“If any influential nation had the great spiritual strength to lay down its arms and appear with clean hands before the world, the world would be changed. I see no evidence that any influential nations has such great spiritual strength and courage. Therefore disarmament will be a slow process, motivated by the wish to survive.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 101


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2007

“If you don’t know what God’s guidance for your life is, you might try seeking in receptive silence.  I used to walk receptive and silent amidst the beauties of nature.  Wonderful insights would come to me which I then put into practice in my life.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 76


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July/August 2007

"The basic cause of all our difficulties is immaturity.  That’s why I talk so much about peace within ourselves as a step toward peace in our world.  If we were mature, war would not be possible and peace would be assured.  In our immaturity we do not know the laws of the universe, and we think evil can be overcome by more evil.  One symptom of our immaturity is greed, making it difficult for us to learn the simple lesson of sharing…"

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 108


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2007

"The darkness that we see in our world today is due to the disintegration of things out of harmony with God's laws.  The basic conflict is not between nations, it is between two opposing beliefs. The first is that evil can be overcome by more evil, that the end justifies the means.  This belief is very prevalent in our world today.  It is the war way.  It is the official position of every major nation.

Then there is the way that was taught two thousand years ago - of overcoming evil with good, which is my way, the way Jesus taught.  Never loose faith: God's way is bound to prevail in the end."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 101-102


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 2007

“There is great freedom in simplicity of living, and after I began to feel this, I found harmony in my life between inner and outer well-being. There is a great deal to be said about such harmony, not only for an individual life but also for the life of a society. It's because as a world we have gotten ourselves so far out of harmony, so way off on the material side, that when we discover something like nuclear energy we are still capable of putting it into a bomb and using it to kill people! This is because our inner well-being lags so far behind our outer well-being.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 13


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2007

“You can find God if you will only seek – by obeying divine laws, by loving people, by relinquishing self-will, attachments, negative thoughts and feelings.  And when you find God it will be in stillness.  You will find God within.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 88


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2007

YOUR FUTURE

In this world you are given as you give
And you are forgiven as you forgive -
While you go your way
Through each lovely day
You create your future as you live.

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 167


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2007

“On one hand, people have found inner peace by losing themselves in a cause larger than themselves, like the cause of world peace, because finding inner peace means coming from the self-centered life into the life centered in the good of the whole. On the other hand, one of the ways of working for world peace is to work for more inner peace, because world peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it. ”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 99


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2007

“If you give your life as a prayer, you intensify the prayer beyond all measure. ”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 95


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November/December 2006

“I no longer become angry. I not only do not say angry words, I do not even think angry thoughts! If someone does an unkind thing to me I feel only compassion instead of resentment. Even upon those who cause suffering I look with deep compassion, knowing the harvest of sorrow that lies in store for them. If there were those who hated me, I would love them in return, knowing that hatred can only be overcome by love, and knowing that there is good in all human beings which can be reached by a loving approach. ”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 112


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2006

“We must be able to appreciate and enjoy the places where we tarry and yet pass on without anguish when we are called elsewhere. In our spiritual development we are often required to pull up roots many times and to close many chapters in our lives until we are no longer attached to any material thing and can love all people without any attachment to them.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 19


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2006

“Now there is living to give instead of to get. As you concentrate on the giving, you discover that just as you cannot receive without giving, so neither can you give without receiving – even the most wonderful things like health and happiness and inner peace. There is a feeling of endless energy, it just never runs out, it seems to be as endless as air. You seem to be plugged in to the source of universal energy.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 23


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2006

“There is also a constant prayer of thankfulness - I am constantly thankful. The world is so beautiful, and I am thankful. I have endless energy, I am thankful. I am plugged into the source of Universal Supply, I am thankful. I am plugged into the source of Universal Truth, I am thankful. I have this constant feeling of thankfulness, which is a prayer. ”

No Quote for July 2006


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2006

“My clothes are most comfortable as well as practical. I wear navy blue slacks and a long sleeve shirt topped with my lettered tunic. Along the edge of my tunic, both front and rear, are partitioned compartments which are hemmed up to serve as pockets. These hold all my possessions which consist of a comb, a folding toothbrush, a ball point pen, a map, some copies of my message and my mail.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 55


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 2006

“My mission is to help promote peace by helping others to find inner peace. If I can find it, you can too. Peace is an idea whose time has come.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 27


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2006

“People have the most control over their affairs at the grass-roots level. Anything that can be fairly and efficiently handled at a grass-roots level should be thus handled, and only delegated to a higher authority when necessary.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 102


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2006

“We are all cells in the body of humanity -- all of us, all over the world. Each one has a contribution to make, and will know from within what this contribution is, but no one can find inner peace except by working, not in a self-centered way, but for the whole human family.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 132


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2006

“Many common problems are caused by wrong attitudes. People see themselves as the center of the universe and judge everything as it relates to them. Naturally you won't be happy that way. You can only be happy when you see things in proper perspective: all human beings are of equal importance in God's sight, and have a job to do in the divine plan.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 61


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2006

“Some people seem to think that my life dedicated to simplicity and service is austere and joyless, but they do not know the freedom of simplicity. I am thankful to God every moment of my life for the great riches that have been showered upon me. My life is full and good but never overcrowded. If life is overcrowded then you are doing more than is required for you to do.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 51
