URI Aarhus CC celebrates the International Peace Day

by Lone Klemmensen, URI Aarhus CC & URI golden rule CC

On September 21st we celebrated the UN International Day of Peace. Here in Denmark I have opened my house for the public to join in a meditation at 12 o’clock and in the evening, as the Aarhus CC event for the International Peace Day.I have found a poem in the book “gifts from a course of miracles” which is part of my spiritual path. I would like to share it with you on this day where we all join in silence and peace together:

The way to peace is open.

There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude.

There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost.

Peace is a natural heritage of spirit.

Everyone is free to refuse to accept his inheritance,

but he is not free to establish what his inheritance is.

Peace and understanding go together and never can be found alone.

Strength and innocence are not in conflict, but naturally live in peace.

Lay down your arms and come without defence into the quiet place,

Where heavens’ peace hold all things still at last.

Lay down all thoughts of danger and of fear.

Let no attack enter you.

In this quiet state alone is strength and power.

Here can no weakness enter, for here is no attack and therefore no illusions.

Peace is of God.

You who are part of God are not at home except in his/her peace.  

May peace prevail in our hearts and minds.

May prevail on earth.
