The Cobled Path to Peace

World peace is a journey
That begins with a single, faltering step
Upon the cobbled path of inner peace.
Inner peace is the
perfection of inner healing.
Inner healing is the fruit of acceptance.
Acceptance is the tree of life
That springs forth from Love.
Love is the seed.
Christ is the Seed. God is Love. God loves us…All.

All of us.

His love frees.
Awakens our souls
To accept that we are accepted.
To accept ourselves.
To accept others.
To love others.
To love our neighbour.
To love our enemy.
To even love…

ourselves.

Acceptance is the tree that bears
the fruit of inner healing.
Inner healing is the beginning of inner peace.
Inner peace is the cobbled path
Which we must all walk
On our journey to world peace.

God is not a philosophy
or ideology.

No.

Not a a religion,
an argument,
or an excuse
for intolerance,
bigotry,
anger,
hate
or war.

God is Peace.

War is the outer conflict
That mirrors our inner conflict.
Hatred stoked by anger.
Anger fueled by rejection.
Rejection scourged by brokenness.
Brokenness stillborn from emptiness.
Emptiness…
The absence of love.
The absence of light.
A dark pit of despair and futility.

God is light.

World peace is the journey
Where every single, faltering step
Upon the cobbled path of inner peace
Leads us closer to our true selves.

Closer to freedom.

Closer to the Divine.
