Some Wonderful Sayings about Peace




            Wealth Without Work
            Pleasure Without Conscience
            Knowledge Without Character
            Commerce Without Morality
            Science Without Humanity
            Worship Without Sacrifice
            Politics Without Principles.



Saint Francis of Assisi:


Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace!

That where there is hatred, I may bring love.

That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness.

That where there is discord, I may bring harmony.

That where there is error, I may bring truth.

That where there is doubt, I may bring faith.

That where there is despair, I may bring hope.

That where there are shadows, I may bring light.

That where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted.

To understand, than to be understood.

To love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.






Imagine there's no heaven 
It's easy if you try 
No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today... 

Imagine there's no countries 
It isn't hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace... 

You may say I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope some day you'll join us 
And the world will live as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world... 

You may say I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope some day you'll join us 
And the world will live as one

What is the price of peace my friend?

Does it cost a dollar, or just a cent?

Why is there a lust for blood and gore?

War is fought, who won lost or draw?

Nothing is won in war, but pain.

People dying, lives go down in drain.

All peace efforts are in vain.

Fight! Fight! Fight! And wars the game.

Fallen man, we all have sinned,

We are nothing, but just beasts.

A beast who hungers for blood and pride

Fighting while the innocent hide.

In war i think many would have died,

Leaving their love ones, behind to cry.

No man is insulated from a war,

As Death comes knocking on the door.

Mankind has been falling into decadence,

Fighting among themselves, like barbarians.

Just like a psychopath in action,

Having lives killed, building torched and burned.

What is the price of peace my friend?

Does it cost a dollar, or just a cent?

Several years ago in London, a young man named Chris was diagnosed with leukemia. His doctor informed him that his death was imminent and he could expect to live no longer than 3 to 6 months. He was advised to go home and make his arrangements.

Chris went home and fell apart completely for 3 weeks. When all his anger was spent and he had no more tears left to cry, he began to feel an urgency about making the best use of the little time he had left. He thought about what the Earth needed most and decided, as many people would, that it had to be World Peace. So he resolved to set about devoting himself whole-heartedly to this end.

Possessions were no longer a priority in Chris' life. He would not be needing them anyway after a couple of months, so he sold what he had and used the money to print leaflets aimed at raising peoples' awareness of the need for World Peace. These he handed out to anyone who would take them on the street corners all over London.

As the medical profession was unable to offer Chris any hope for recovery, he decided to take the matter into his own hands and at least aim for the highest possible quality of whatever life he had left.

He saw an advertisement for Reiki, attended the course and this introduced him to an awareness of his spirituality, which he then pursued keenly. Three months passed; six months passed and he was still handing out leaflets.

His money was by now running out fast, so he used the last of his funds to start a small business for himself making candles and printing T-shirts with a World Peace logo on them. These he sold on street corners to finance the printing of more leaflets and to pay for rent and food.

One year passed. Two years passed. Three years passed by and Chris was still handing out leaflets and selling candles and T-shirts. One evening he was at a social event when he met the doctor who had diagnosed his illness three years earlier. The doctor was astounded to see Chris not only alive, but apparently doing quite well. He convinced Chris to admit himself to hospital for tests, and everyone was amazed to find that all traces of leukemia had disappeared.

Some time passed and the Dalai Lama was visiting London on a lecture tour. Chris went along to hear him speak and afterwards went backstage, explained his story to the Dalai Lama's helpers and asked for an audience with him the following day. They agreed, so Chris arrived at his appointment with one of his handmade candles.

He asked the Dalai Lama to light his candle and dedicate it to World Peace with the idea that all candles lit from that one would carry with them the blessing and dedication of Peace. At midnight on 1st January 2000, Chris asks that all these candles be relit in the name of World Peace. By January 1997, when this message began, thousands of candles had been known to be lit from the original, and many were taken to at least five different countries. If this story and a flame is shared by all those who come into contact with it, by January 2000 millions of people all over the world will be lighting their candles and directing their thoughts and energies to the goal of a peaceful Planet Earth.

Imagine if you will, the awesome power generated by such an act, and the potential positive impact this could have on humankind. Perhaps you have said to yourself, "I am only one person. How can my meager efforts possibly make a difference to the total scheme of things?" Here is your answer.

Positive changes on a global level need only require a small effort by individuals. Here is your chance to participate. ENJOY.


If you receive this message and email it on, will you resolve to light up a candle for World Peace at 12.01am on 1st January and allow it to burn for twenty-four hours? Imagine the power for good that will have. Imagine All The People Living Life in Peace.
