Book Musings: Peace is the Way

Peace is the Way

“There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.” -Mahatma Gandhi

I am reading this book aloud with Thomas and Lillian. There’s so much it contains that I’d like to share, it would nearly be the entire book! It’s an incredibly powerful book. It may have been published in 2005; yet, it seems especially relevant in the present.

“Violence may be innate in human nature, but so is its opposite: love. The next stage of humanity, the leap which we are poised to take, will be guided by the force of that love.”

“You aren’t asked to be a saint, or to give up any belief. You are only asked to stop reacting out of fear, to change your allegiance from violence to peace.”

Polishing the Mirror – How to Love from Your Spiritual Heart

“The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They are in each other all along.” – Rumi

Another great book by Ram Dass. I greatly enjoy his perspective. From being here now to aging and changing, from suffering to grace, to content to just be. This book is deeply meaningful for me.
