Peace is inevitable in your experience of awakening from your dream Ultra Manifestation Review of a human existence. You cannot get peace nor have peace as a result of your 'doing' in the world, no matter how much effort you exert in your well-meant attempts to make this world a better place. But you will give peace in order to have it, because you are PEACE. Peace is the bridge that everyone will cross, to leave this world behind. But peace begins within the world perceived as different, and leading from this fresh perception to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond. Peace is the answer to conflicting goals, to senseless journeys, frantic, vain pursuits, and meaningless endeavors.
This is a paragraph in the key-lesson 200 of A Course in Miracles, "There is no peace except the Peace of God." If you have come that far and can hear that, you are entitled to know the truth that God's Will for you is perfect happiness - complete peace without an opposite. Do you want IT now? This is the crucial decision everyone must make to remember God and the Peace HE has given you. To mean you want the peace of God is to renounce all dreams. What is it you are dreaming? What makes up your world from which you seek release in peace? Are you ready to deny the ego entirely and hand your will and life over to the care of God? The eternal are in peace and joy forever.
The mortal are in conflict, competition, war and retaliation. They defend themselves, see a need to protect their little lives from the evil forces they believe are out there to terrorize them. They are vulnerable to be attacked. And because it is what they fear, they attack. They are afraid of everyone and everything, justifying their separation anxiety. They do not know of a gratitude that gives them peace. These are the human beings' values of the world you see. Peace in the world is considered to be the interval between two wars. And this interval with its daily struggles, decisions for a better future and holding your values under control is nothing but your war against yourself. Can you look at this with me for a moment reasonably, please? What you need to understand is that the ego is insane.
