Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2005

“People sometimes ask me if I do no feel lonely on holidays. How can I feel lonely when I live in the constant awareness of God's presence? I love and enjoy being with people, but when I am alone I enjoy being alone with God.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 48


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2005

“In order for the world to become more peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem – it would be impossible.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2005

“Just as a human soul that faces great difficulties also faces great opportunities for spiritual growth, so a human society that faces destruction also faces the opportunity to enter a period of renaissance. I think that, barring an accident, the wish to survive will keep us from a nuclear war.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 105


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2005

“Penance is the willingness to undergo hardships for the achievement of a good purpose. I was willing. But when hardships came I found myself lifted above them. Instead of hardship, I found a wonderful sense of peace and joy and conviction that I was following God’s will. Blessings instead of hardships are showered upon me.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 30


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2005

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 May 2005

“I considered myself liberated long before it became the fashion. First I liberated myself from debilitating habits, and went on to free myself of combative, aggressive thoughts. I have also cast aside any unnecessary possessions. This, I feel, is true liberation.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2005

“I define democracy as control by the people. Slaves are those who allow others to control their lives. Insofar as people succeed in solving their problems fairly and efficiently at a grassroots level, they retain control over their lives. Insofar as they delegate their problem solving to a higher authority, they lose control over their lives. ”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 120


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2005

“Of course, I love everyone I meet. How could I fail to! Within everyone is the spark of God. I am not concerned with racial or ethnic background or the color of one’s skin; all people look to me like shining lights! I see in all creatures the reflections of God. All people are my kinfolk – people to me are beautiful!”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 50


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2005

“Walk with me, but don’t follow me blindly. Hold fast to the truth, not to my garments. My body is merely a clay structure; today it is here, tomorrow it shall be gone. If you attach yourself to me today, what are you going to do tomorrow when I am not with you? Attach yourself to God, attach yourself to humanity, only then will you be closer to me.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 130


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2005

“The most important part of prayer is what we feel, not what we say. We spend a great deal of time telling God what we think should be done, and not enough time waiting in the stillness for God to tell us what to do.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2004

“ In all the people I meet – though some may be governed by the self-centered nature and may not know their potential at all – I see that divine spark. And that’s what I concentrate on. All people look beautiful to me; they look like shining lights to me. I always have the feeling of being thankful for these beautiful people who walk the earth with me.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 73-74


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2004

“To the world I may seem very poor, walking penniless and wearing or carrying in my pockets my only material possessions, but I am really very rich in blessings which no amount of money could buy – health and happiness and inner peace.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 58-59


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2004

Q: How can one find inner peace?

A: “To find inner peace, or happiness, you must go through the spiritual growing up, you must leave the self-centered life and enter the God-centered life – the life in which you see yourself as part of the whole and work for the good of the whole.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 140


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2004

“Knowing that all things contrary to God’s law are transient, let us avoid despair and radiate hope for a warless world. Peace is possible, for thoughts have tremendous power.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2004

“I remember my first lesson on the pilgrimage was the lesson of receiving. I had been on the giving side for many years and I needed to learn to accept as gracefully as I had been able to give, in order to give the other fellow the joy and blessing of giving. It’s so beautiful when you live to give. To me it’s the only way to live because as you give you receive spiritual blessings.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 30


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 2004

“All right prayer has good effect, but if you give your whole life to the prayer you multiply its power... No one really knows the full power of prayer. Of course, there is a relationship between prayer and action. Receptive prayer result in an inner receiving, which motivates to right action.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 75


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2004

“If democracy is control by the people, as it is supposed to be, it is the right form of government. I believe in a complete democracy - individual, political, social, economic. If we really had that, which we don't now, it would be in harmony with divine purpose.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 155

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2004

“The simplification of life is one of the steps to inner peace. A persistent simplification will create an inner and outer well-being that places harmony in one’s life. For me this began with a discovery of the meaninglessness of possessions beyond my actual and immediate needs. As soon as I had brought myself down to need level, I began to feel a wonderful harmony in my life between inner and outer well-being, between spiritual and material well-being.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2004

“Difficulties with material things often come to remind us that our concentration should be on spiritual things instead of material things. Sometimes difficulties of the body come to show that the body is just a transient garment, and that the reality is the indestructible essence which activates the body. But when we can say, 'Thank God for problems which are sent for our spiritual growth.' They are no longer problems. They then become opportunities.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 60


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2004

“Just concentrate on thinking and living and acting in harmony with God’s laws and inspiring others to do likewise.

Every time you meet a person, think of some encouraging thing to say – a kind word, a helpful suggestion, an expression of admiration. Never think of any right effort as being fruitless. All right effort bears fruit, whether we see the results or not.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 81
