The peace of God is shining in me now.
There is no peace except the peace of God.
Let me not
wander from the way of peace,
“Father, I come to You today to seek the peace that You alone can give.
I come in silence.
In the quiet of my heart, the deep recesses of my mind,
I wait and listen for Your Voice.
My Father, speak to me today.
I come to hear Your Voice in silence and in certainty and love,
sure You will
hear my call and answer me.”
Now do we wait in quiet.
God is here
because we wait together.
We wait with one intent; to hear our Father’s answer to our call,
to let our thoughts be still and find His peace,
to hear Him speak to us of what we are,
and to reveal Himself unto His Son.
Now will I seek and find the peace of God.
In peace I was created. And in peace do I remain.
It is not given me to change my Self.
How merciful is God my Father,
that when He created me He gave me peace forever.
Now I ask but to be what I am.
this be denied me, when it is forever so?
What was given then must be here now,
for my creation was apart from time,
and still remains beyond all change.
The peace in which Your Son was born into Your Mind is shining there unchanged.
I am as You created me.
I need but call on You to find the peace You gave.
It is Your Will that gave it to Your Son.”
Your peace is with me, Father. I am safe.
Your peace goes there with me.
It sheds its light on everyone I meet.
I bring it to the desolate and lonely and afraid.
I give Your peace to those who suffer pain, or grieve for loss,
or think they are bereft of hope and happiness.
Send them to me, my Father. Let me bring Your peace with me.
For I would save Your Son, as is Your Will,
I may come to recognize my Self.”
To all the world we give the message that we have received.
And thus we come to hear the Voice of God,
Who speaks to us as we relate His Word;
Whose Love we recognize because we share the Word that He has given unto us.
This day I choose to spend in perfect peace.
And yet, my God assures me that His Son is like Himself.
Let me this day have faith in Him Who says I am God’s Son.
And let the peace I choose be mine today bear witness to the truth of what He says.
God’s Son can have no cares, and must remain forever in the peace of Heaven.
In his name I give today to finding what my Father wills for me,
it as mine, and giving it to all my Father’s Sons, along with me.
Your Son has not forgotten You. T
he peace You gave him still is in his mind,
and it is there I choose to spend today.”
My heart is beating in the peace of God.
Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love.
It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath;
in every action and in every thought.
Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness.
Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me.
Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath infuses me with strength.
I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love,
and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving arms.
Each heartbeat calls His Name, and everyone is answered by His Voice,
me I am at home in Him.
Father, my heart is beating in the peace the Heart of Love created.
It is there and only there that I can be at home.”
The stillness of the peace of God is mine.
Perhaps we are now ready for a day of undisturbed tranquility.
If this is not yet feasible,
we are content and even more than satisfied to learn how such a day can be achieved.
If we give way to a disturbance,
let us learn how to dismiss it and return to peace.
We need but tell our minds, with certainty,
“The stillness of the peace of God is mine,”
nothing can intrude upon the peace that God Himself has given to His Son.
What need have I to fear that anything can rob me of what You would have me keep?
I cannot lose Your gifts to me.
And so the peace You gave Your Son is with me still,
in quietness and in my own eternal love for You.”
The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.
“Father, how still today!
How quietly do all things fall in place!
This is the day that has been chosen as the time in which
I come to understand the lesson that there is no need that I do anything.
In You is every choice already made.
In You has every conflict been resolved.
In You is everything I hope to find already given me.
Your peace is mine.
My heart is quiet, and my mind at rest.
Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.”
and travelled far along it, to a wholly certain goal.
Today we will not doubt the end which God Himself has promised us.
We trust in Him, and in our Self, Who still is one with Him.
This is a day of stillness and of peace.
Christ’s vision looks through me today.
His sight shows me all things forgiven and at peace,
and offers this same vision to the world.
And I accept this vision in its name, both for myself and for the world as well.
What loveliness we look upon today!
What holiness we see surrounding us!
And it is given us to recognize it is a holiness in which we share;
it is the
Holiness of God Himself.
And I accept what comes from You instead of from myself.
I do not know the way to You.
But You are wholly certain.
Father, lead Your Son along the quiet path that ends in You.
Let my forgiveness be complete, and let the memory of You return to me.”
There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.
Who uses but Christ’s vision finds a peace so deep and quiet,
undisturbable and wholly changeless, that the world contains no counterpart.
Comparisons are still before this peace.
And all the world departs in silence, as this peace envelops it,
and gently carries it to truth, no more to be the home of fear.
has come, and healed the world by giving it Christ’s peace.
because it is Your Will that we be saved.
Help us today but to accept Your gift, and judge it not.
For it has come to us to save us from our judgement on ourselves.”
not asked to make a sacrifice
“The end of suffering can not be loss.
The gift of everything can but be gain.
You only give. You never take away.
And You created me to be like You,
so sacrifice becomes impossible for me as well as You.
I, too, must give, and so all things are given unto me forever and forever.
As I was created, I remain. Your Son can make no sacrifice,
for he must be complete, having the function of completing You.
I am complete because I am Your Son. I cannot lose, for I can only give.
everything is mine eternally.”
Salvation has no cost.
It is a gift that must be freely given and received,
and it is this that we would learn today.
Today the peace of God envelops me,
“Father, I wake today with miracles correcting my perception of all things.
And so begins the day I share with You as I will share eternity,
for time has stepped aside today.
I do not seek the things of time, and so I will not look upon them.
What I seek today transcends all laws of time and things perceived in time.
I would forget all things except Your Love.
I would abide in You, and know no laws except Your law of Love.
And I would find the peace which You created for Your Son,
forgetting all the foolish toys I made as I behold Your glory and my own.”
we will remember nothing but the peace of God.
For we will learn today what peace is ours when we forget all things except God’s Love.
sinless brother is my guide to peace.
“Who is my brother but Your holy Son?
And if I see him sinful, I proclaim myself a sinner; not a Son of God;
alone and friendless in a fearful world.
Yet this perception is a choice I make, and can relinquish.
I can also see my brother sinless, as Your holy Son.
And with this choice I see my sinlessness,
my everlasting Comforter and Friend beside me,
and my way secure and clear.
Choose, then, for me, my Father, through Your Voice.
For He alone gives judgement in Your Name.”
stand together, Christ and I, in peace
“My oneness with the Christ establishes me as Your Son,
beyond the reach of time, and wholly free of every law but Yours.
I have no self except the Christ in me.
I have no purpose but His own.
And He is like His Father.
I be one with You as well as Him.
And what am I except the Christ in me?”
There is no end to all the peace and joy
“Why should I wait, my Father, for the joy You promised me?
For You will keep Your Word You gave Your Son in exile.
I am sure my treasure waits for me,
and I need but reach out my hand to find it.
Even now my fingers touch it.
It is very close.
I need not wait an instant more, to be at peace forever.
It is You I choose, and my Identity along with You.
Your Son would be Himself,
and know You as his Father and Creator and his Love.”
God’s answer is some form of peace. All pain
“Father, today we will forgive Your world, and let creation be Your own.
We have misunderstood all things.
But we have not made sinners of the holy Sons of God.
What You created sinless so abides forever and forever.
Such are we.
And we rejoice to learn that we have made mistakes which have no real effects on us.
Sin is impossible, and on this fact forgiveness rests upon a certain base more solid than the shadow world we see.
Help us forgive, for we would be redeemed.
Help us forgive, for we would be at peace.”
Peace be to me, the holy Son of God.
“Father, it is Your peace that I would give, receiving it of You.
I am Your Son, forever just as You created me,
for the Great Rays remain forever still and undisturbed within me.
I would reach to them in silence and in certainty,
for nowhere else can certainty be found.
Peace be to me, and peace to all the world.
In holiness were we created, and in holiness do we remain.
Your Son is like to You in perfect sinlessness,
and with this thought we gladly say ‘Amen’.”
