Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2009

“Never underestimate the power of God's love - it transforms! It reaches the spark of good in the other person and the person is disarmed.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 32


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2009

“I began my pilgrimage on the first of January in 1953. It is my spiritual birthday of sorts. It was a period in which I was merged with the whole. No longer was I a seed buried under the ground, but I felt as a flower reaching out effortlessly toward the sun.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2009

“Many people profess Christianity. Very few people live it - almost none. And when you live it people may think you're crazy. It has been truthfully said that the world is equally shocked by one who repudiates Christianity and by one who practices it.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 86


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2009

“Little people of the world, let us never feel helpless again. Let us remember that if enough of us ask together even very big things like world disarmament and world peace will be granted. Let's ask together!

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 124


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2009

“IN THE BEGINNING I undertook my walking not only to contact people, I undertook it as a prayer discipline to keep me concentrated on my prayer for peace...  After the first few years the prayer discipline was completely unnecessary, because I had learned to pray without ceasing. I made the contact so thoroughly that into my prayer consciousness I put any condition or person in the world I am concerned about and the rest takes place automatically.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 2009

“My desire is to strive toward perfection; to be as much in harmony with God's will as possible; to live up to the highest light I have. I'm still not perfect, of course, but I grow daily... I am able to do everything I am called to do, and I do know what I need to know to do my part in the Divine Plan. And I do experience the happiness of living in harmony with God's will for me.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 126-127


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2009

“Tremendous energy comes with anger.  It's sometimes called the anger energy.  Do not suppress it: that would hurt you inside.  Do not express it: this would not only hurt you inside, it would cause ripples in your surroundings.  What you do is transform it.  You somehow use that tremendous energy constructively on a task that needs to be done, or in a beneficial form of exercise.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 64


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 2009

“Humanity can only improve as people improve. When you have improved your life, you can inspire those around you to want to improve their lives. Remember that a few in harmony with God's will are more powerful than multitudes out of harmony."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 162


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2009

“I would like to mention some preparations that were required of me. The first preparation is to take a right attitude toward life. This means, stop being an escapist! Stop being a surface liver who stays right in the froth of the surface. There are millions of these people, and they never find anything really worthwhile. Be willing to face life squarely and get down beneath the surface of life where the verities and realities are to be found. That's what we are doing here now."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 9


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2009

“I have never met anyone who built a bomb shelter and felt protected by it.  I have never met a modern military man who did not realize that military victory is a concept which became obsolete with the coming of the nuclear age, and most civilians realize this also.  Wisdom demands that we stop preparing to wage a war which would eliminate mankind - and start preparing to eliminate the seeds of war."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 115


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2009

“There was a time - when I attained inner peace - when I died, utterly died to myself. I have since renounced my previous identity. I can see not reason to dwell upon my past, it is dead and should not be resurrected. Don't inquire of me - ask me about my message. It is not important to remember the messenger, just remember the message."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 126


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2009

“As I looked about the world, so much of it impoverished, I became increasingly uncomfortable about having so much while my brothers and sisters were starving. Finally I had to find another way. The turning point came when, in desperation and out of a very deep seeking for a meaningful way of life, I walked all one night through the woods. I came to a moonlit glade and prayed."

I felt a complete willingness, without any reservations, to give my life--to dedicate my life--to service. "Please use me!" I prayed to God. And a great peace came over me."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 7


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2008

“I feel a complete protection on my pilgrimage. God is my shield. There are no accidents in the Divine Plan nor does God leave us unattended. No one walks so safely as those who walk humbly and harmlessly with great love and great faith."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 46


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2008

“How often are you worrying about the present moment?  The present is usually all right.  If you're worrying, you're either agonizing over the past which you should have forgotten long ago, or else you're apprehensive over the future which hasn't even come yet.  We tend to skim right over the present moment which is the only moment God gives any of us to live.  If you don't live the present moment, you never get around to living at all.  And if you do live the present moment, you tend not to worry.  For me, every moment is a new and wonderful opportunity to be of service."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 64


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2008

“There should be intensive research of all forms of clean energy - sun power, wind power, water power including wave power. In some places thermal energy is available. I stayed on a ranch which, with solar panels and two windmills, provided its own energy."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 154


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2008

“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others. Inner peace is not found by staying on the surface of life, or by attempting to escape from life through any means. Inner peace is found by facing life squarely, solving its problems, and delving as far beneath its surface as possible to discover its verities and realities."

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2008

“When I began my pilgrimage I left the Los Angeles area without a cent, having faith that God would provide me with everything I needed. Although I have never asked for anything, God has provided me with everything along the way. Without ever asking for anything I've been supplied.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 127


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 2008

“After you have found inner peace you have endless energy - the more you give, the more you receive. After you have found your calling, you work easily and joyously. You never get tired.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 159


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2008

“If you are harboring the slightest bitterness toward anyone, or any unkind thoughts of any sort whatever, you must get rid of them quickly. They are not hurting anyone but you. It isn't enough just to do right things and say right things - you must also think right things before your life can come into harmony.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 16


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 2008

“Evil cannot be overcome by more evil. Evil can only be overcome by good. It is the lesson of the way of love.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 86


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2008

“I have only one desire now: to do God's will for me. There is no conflict. When God guides me to walk a pilgrimage I do it gladly. When God guides me to do other things I do them just as gladly. If what I do brings criticism upon me I take it with head unbowed. If what I do brings me praise I pass it immediately along to God, for I am only the instrument through which God does the work. When God guides me to do something I am given strength, I am given supply, I am shown the way. I am given the words to speak. Whether the path is easy or hard I walk in the Light of God's love and peace and joy, and I turn to God with psalms of thanksgiving and praise. This it is to know God. And knowing God is not reserved for the great ones. It is for little folks like you and me. God is always seeking you -- every one of you.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 87-88


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2008

“I sleep equally well in a soft bed or on the grass beside the road. If I am given food and shelter, fine. If not, I'm just as happy. Many times I am given shelter by total strangers. When hospitality is not available there are always bus depots, railroad stations and all night truck stops.... When no shelter is available to me, I sleep in the fields or by the side of the road with God to guard me.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 46


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2008

“When love fills your life all limitations are gone. The medicine this sick world needs so badly is love.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 12


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2008

“I walk until given shelter, fast until given food. I don't ask - it's given without asking. Aren't people good! There's a spark of good in everybody, no mater how deeply it may be buried. It's waiting to govern your life gloriously.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 25
