LET US JOIN IN A SPIRIT OF QUIET MEDITATION.

Let Peace flow into you. Let it calm your troubled self, heal your need self, help your angry self to remember to listen – fully and compassionately – to the Other.

Let Peace flow around you, until you walk with peace and speak words of peace and reflect all the radiance of this beautiful world.

Let Peace flow through you and beyond you. Let peace guide you and fill you with wisdom. Let it be the bridge that connects you, not just with people of good will but also with people whose hearts are centered in their own needs and desires, who are not yet free to bring peace into their hearts.

Let Peace fill the world. Let it begin now. Here. Today.
We ask this in the name of that power that dwells within us and beyond us:
a power called by many names in many times and places,
but whose universal name is Love.
