Peace be both to thee, and peace be to thine house, and peace be unto all that thou hast.

Samuel 25:6

Phillips Brooks said that “peace is the entire harmony between the nature of anything and its circumference.”  “House” is a symbol of the physical body and of “that house not made with hands eternal in the heavens.”  House is a symbol of any of the “vehicles, bodies or habitations of the soul” on any or all planes.  The Bible speaks of the House of Bondage and the House of Freedom.  Symbolically, it tells us that we must come “out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage’; that we must be led by the Divine Spirit into that true home which is heaven.  Jesus said that ‘in My Father’s house there are many mansions.”

Today I permit my mental house to be at peace.  I know that my true home is heaven and the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.  Today I enter into this permanent home.  I consciously move in and make my dwelling place in this House of Peace and Gladness.

The perfect Life of God now expresses through me.  As the sun dissolves the mist, so my knowledge of truth dissolves all pain and discord.  There is nothing for me to fear.  God is my life, my strength; I claim my true sonship.  I claim my divine inheritance of perfect life.  Today I am made perfect through conscious union with the Source of all life.  I have peace in the Household of the Lord.
