Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2011

"If you want to serve the universe, the obvious place to begin is right where you are. That's where I began. I looked at every situation I came into and wondered, 'What can I do to be of service in this situation?' Sometimes there was nothing I could do, but often there was - a helping hand, a word of cheer, a pleasant smile. Then, after I had given a lot, a most wonderful spiritual receiving began - giving me more to give."

from "Peace Pilgrim's Progress" #19 her original newsletters.


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2011
“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. They can be a powerful influence for good when they're on the positive side, and they can and do make you physically ill when they're on the negative side. I don't eat junk foods and I don't think junk thoughts! Let me tell you, junk thoughts can destroy you even more quickly than junk food. Junk thoughts are something to be wary of.”

Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2011

"It's very important to get your desires centered so you will desire only to do God's will for you. You can come to the point of oneness of desire, just to know and do your part in the Life Pattern. When you think about it, is there anything else as really important to desire?"

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 17


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for September 2011

"If only you could see the whole picture, if you knew the whole story, you would realize that no problem ever comes to you that does not have a purpose in your life, that cannot contribute to your inner growth. When you perceive this, you will recognize that problems are opportunities in disguise. If you did not face problems, you would just drift through life. It is through solving problems in accordance with the highest light we have that inner growth is attained."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 9-10


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2011

"I believe it is quite possible for us to obtain an outer peace at the present time. Historically speaking, when human beings are faced with the choice between destruction and change, they are apt to choose change, and it's about the only thing that will make them choose change. So we have the possibility at the present time to take a different direction in the world - the possibility exists!"

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 2011

"You must learn to forgive yourself as easily as you forgive others. And then take a further step and use all that energy that you used in condemning yourself for improving yourself. After that I really started to get somewhere - because there's only one person you can change and that's yourself. After you have changed yourself, you might be able to inspire others to look for change."

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2011

"How good it is to work in the invigorating fresh air under the life-giving sun amid the inspiring beauty of nature. There are many who recognize this... How good it is to earn you livelihood by contributing constructively to the society in which you live - everyone should, of course, and in a healthy society everyone would."

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 2011

“Implanting spiritual ideas in children is very important. Many people live their entire lives according to the concepts that are implanted in them in childhood. When children learn they will get the most attention and love through doing constructive things, they will tend to stop doing destructive things. Most important of all, remember that children learn through example. No matter what you say it is what you do that will have an influence on them.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 117


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2011

“I am never lonely or discouraged or tired. When you live in constant communion with God, you cannot be lonely. When you perceive the working of God's wonderful plan and know that all good effort bears good fruit, you cannot be discouraged. When you have found inner peace, you are in contact with the source of universal energy and cannot be tired.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 157-8


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2011

“I’ve met a few people who had to change their jobs in order to change their lives but I’ve met many more people who merely had to change their motive to service in order to change their lives.”

Steps Toward Inner Peace – Pg. 11


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2011

"We lump together all things that are beyond the capacity of all of us collectively to understand--and one name we give to all those things together is God.  Therefore, God is the creative force, the sustaining power, that which motivates toward constant change, the overall intelligence which governs the universe by physical and spiritual law, truth, love, goodness, kindness, beauty, the ever-present, all-pervading essence or spirit, which binds everything in the universe together and gives to everything in the universe.."

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2011

"Were I to solve problems for others they would remain stagnant; they would never grow.  It would be a great injustice to them.  My approach is to help with cause rather than effect.  When I help others, it is by instilling within them the inspiration to work out problems by themselves.  If you feed a man a meal, you only feed him for a day--but if you teach a man to grow food, you feed him for a lifetime."

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for December 2010

"Worry is a habit.  It is something that can be worked on. I call it relinquishment of the worry habit...  It's a total waste of time and energy.  If you are a praying person who prays with faith, you would immediately, and automatically, take what you're worried about to God in prayer and leave it in God's hands--the best possible hands.  This is one technique which is excellent.  In the beginning you may have to take it back to God quite a number of times before you develop the habit (which I have developed) of always doing everything you can in a situation, and then leaving the rest safely in God's hands."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 63-64


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for November 2010

"THIS IS THE WAY OF PEACE: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love... My simple peace message is adequate - really just the message that the way of peace is the way of love. Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things. One in harmony with God's law of love has more strength than an army, for one need not subdue an adversary; an adversary can be transformed."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 97


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for October 2010

"The world is like a mirror; if you smile at it, it smiles at you. I love to smile, and so in general, I definitely receive smiles in return."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 186


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for August 2010

"Intellectually I touched God many times as truth and emotionally I touched God as love. I touched God as goodness. I touched God as kindness. It came to me that God is a creative force, a motivating power, an over-all intelligence, an ever-present, all pervading spirit -- which binds everything in the universe together and gives life to everything. That brought God  close. I could not be where God is not. You are within God. God  is within you."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 2


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for July 2010

"I recognized that there are some well-known, little understood, and seldom practiced laws that we must live by if we wish to find peace within or without. Included are the laws that evil can only be overcome by good; that only good means can attain a good end; that those who do unloving things hurt themselves spiritually."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 10


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for June 2010

"We must walk according to the highest light we have, encountering lovingly those who are out of harmony, and trying to inspire them toward a better way. Whenever you bring harmony into any unpeaceful situation, you contribute to the cause of peace. When you do something for world peace, peace among groups, peace among individuals, or your own inner peace, you improve the total peace picture."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 109


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for May 2010

“In my life, what I want and what I need are exactly the same. Anything in excess of needs is burdensome to me. You couldn't give me anything I don't need. I am penniless, but have difficulty remaining so. Several of my well meaning, well-to-do friends have offered me large sums of money, which I of course refused.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for April 2010

“It is my mission as a pilgrim to act as a messenger expressing spiritual truths. It is a task which I accept joyfully, and I desire nothing in return, neither praise or glory, nor the glitter of silver and gold. I simply rejoice to be able to follow the whisperings of a Higher Will.”

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


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for March 2010

“We worship God, but have no faith in the workings of God's laws of love. The world awaits the living of the law of love, which will reach the divine within all human beings and transform them.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 103


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for February 2010

“Are you a slave to your self-centered nature or does your divine nature guide your life? Do you kow that every moment of your life you're creating through thought? You create your own inner condition; you're helping create the conditions around you.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 80


Peace Pilgrim Quote of the Month for January 2010

“You have endless energy only when you are working for the good of the whole - you have to stop working for your little selfish interests. That's the secret of it. In this world you are given as you give.”

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 4
