CHAPTER 7

Inner Peace: Antidote for Stress, Worry, and Fear

 Continues………

Everything you do should be done with peace. That is the best medicine for your body, mind, and soul. It is the most wonderful way to live.

******

Peace is the altar of God, the condition in which happiness exists.

******

If you keep your mind on the resolve never to lose your peace, then you can attain godliness. Keep a secret chamber of silence within yourself, where you will not let moods, trials, battles, or inharmony enter. Keep out all hatred, revengefulness, and desires. In this chamber of peace God will visit you.

******

You cannot buy peace; you must know how to manufacture it within, in the stillness of your daily practices in meditation.

******

We should pattern our life by a triangular guide: calmness and sweetness are the two sides; the base is happiness. Every day, one should remind himself: “I am a prince of peace, sitting on the throne of poise, directing my kingdom of activity.” Whether one acts quickly or slowly, in solitude or in the busy marts of men, his center should be peaceful, poised.
