Finding Peace in the World

I want the peace of God.

To say these words is nothing. ²But to mean these words is everything. ³If you could but mean them for just an instant, there would be no further sorrow possible for you in any form; in any place or time. ⁴Heaven would be completely given back to full awareness, memory of God entirely restored, the resurrection of all creation fully recognized.

No one can mean these words and not be healed. ²He cannot play with dreams, nor think he is himself a dream. ³He cannot make a hell and think it real. ⁴He wants the peace of God, and it is given him. ⁵For that is all he wants, and that is all he will receive.

To mean you want the peace of God is to renounce all dreams.

The mind which means that all it wants is peace must join with other minds, for that is how peace is obtained. ²And when the wish for peace is genuine, the means for finding it is given, in a form each mind that seeks for it in honesty can understand. A Course in Miracles, (W-185.1:1–2:5;5:1;6:1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 185 Insights.)

Everyone wants peace, for the mind identified with the ego thought system is unsettled and stressed. But under the ego’s direction we seek peace by inappropriate means. The ego always wants to seek and not find to maintain its seeming reality. The mind at peace has dismissed the ego and wants only the unity of God’s Love.

Throughout today we ask to see the world through the eyes of Love. This is how we align our mind with God’s. For His Will is to extend Love eternally. We will find peace in this practice, for peace is an attribute of Love.
