I am a peaceful being teaching Peace!

          In our wonderful metaphysical congregation there are those who pray for peace, many who are willing to fight for peace, some who espouse peace, and a few that are at peace in their everyday life, manner and spirit. World peace will come when everyone can walk in peace and in their example teach peace to everyone they meet.

          What does it take to be peaceful inside? How do you achieve a peaceful demeanor, presence and form? The best way is to release all judgment of people, let go of all anger, frustration and disappointment with yourself and others. Peace is inevitable when you offer peace to everyone. This peaceful mind must join with other minds, for that is how peace is obtained!

          Don’t you think the world – the entire world needs peace as much as you do?  Giving peace to the world means breathing out peace with every exhalation! Only in giving it will you receive it back. When you have accepted this mission to breathe out peace, you will find peace in all that you are.

          “I want the Peace of God,” as quoted from A Course in Miracles is easy to say. But, to act upon these words is everything!

          Just remember that you came into this incarnation as a peaceful being with the intent of bringing the peace of God to the world. Peace is the condition of truth and sanity – and cannot be brought about on the wings of destruction, in the whispers of self-doubt or on the lips of gossiping name callers. The only way to have peace – is to be unconditionally loving of all beings – teaching peace with every word you say and every act you perform.


There was an engineer who had an exceptional gift for fixing all things mechanical.

After serving his company loyally for over 30 years, he happily retired.

          Several years later, the company contacted him regarding a seemingly impossible problem they were having with one of their multi-million dollar machines. They had tried everything and everyone to get the machine fixed, but to no avail. In desperation, they called on the retired engineer who had solved so many of their problems in the past.

          The engineer reluctantly took the challenge. He spent a day studying the huge machine. At the end of the day, he marked a small “x” in chalk on a particular component of the machine and proudly stated, “This is where your problem is.”

          The part was replaced and the machine worked perfectly again. The company received a bill for $50,000 from the engineer for his services. They demanded an itemized accounting of his charges.

The engineer responded:

One chalk mark . . . . . . . . . . . . . $1
Knowing where to put it . . . . . . . $49,999
