Peace

Central Coast Center for Spiritual Living - Ernest Holmes by Charles Carlin
Ernest Holmes

The peaceful mind is calm in the midst of confusion, but the Mind distraught by the events of the day, fearful of the future, introspecting the past, finds no repose and is continuously tormented by itself.

Peace is brought about through a conscious Unity of the personal man with the inner principle of life, that underlying current flowing from a Divine Center, pressing ever outward into expression.

The moment of transition from external confusion to inward peace is indicated as we passed through the negation of opposites to an affirmation of unity. A change in Affairs does not necessarily bring peace. Friends cannot make the gift, money cannot purchase it. Nothing can bring peace but the revelation of the individual to himself. Such peace as any man possesses comes from a conscious or unconscious agreement with the universe, a non-combative attitude toward it.

The Divine does not come to us bringing an olive branch of peace with which to allay our confusion. The Divine knows no confusion. It persists and remaining true to its own nature. The nature of God is peace.

We say that God is peace, but we only get peace when we have it in ourselves. Which reveals, not a God of Peace, but a God who is peace. God does not acquire qualities.

God is the essence; the quality is merely the way it manifests itself. The spirit is ever calm and filled with peace for it has no enemies to contend with or against.

The real fatherhood of God and the true Brotherhood of man must be understood before the world can live in peace.
And So It Is
