AT THE CENTER OF MY BEING IS PEACE
They rise upward who are settled in Harmony
At the center of my being is peace – the peace that is felt in the coolness of evening, when men have turned from their labor and the first star shines in the soft light of the sky. There is a freshness, a vitality, a power underlying this Peace. It broods over the earth quietly, tenderly, as a mother watches over her sleeping babe.
Divine Wisdom illumines me. Infinite Energy activates me. All that I am and all that I have responds to the magnetic pull of Divine Life.
In this Peace which holds me so gently, I feel strength and protection from all fear, all anxieties. It is the Peace of God, and underneath it all, I feel the Love of the Holy Presence. As I become more conscious of this Love, all lack, all fear, all that is false, slips away as mist fades in the morning sunshine. I see God in everything, personified in all people, manifest in every event. The Spirit is not separated from the person or the event; It unites each to Itself, vitalizing each with the energy of Its own being, creating each through Its own divine imagination. I, too, am an instrument of Its perfection. I am one with deep, abiding Peace. I know that all is well, I know that as I permit this Peace to flow through my being, through my mind and heart, every problem is released. The way is made clear before me. It is filled with joy and harmony.
