devotions: thoughts of peace

"Do not think the peace of the world an ideal impossible to attain. 

Nothing is impossible to the divine benevolence of God. 

If you desire with all your heart friendship with every race on earth, your thought, 
spiritual and positive will spread;

it will become the desire of others,
growing stronger until it reaches the minds of all men."

~ Bahá'i Writings

Dedicated to the children of Syria, many of whom are being cared for in hospitals in Israel.

"How is it possible for men to fight from morning until evening, killing each other, shedding the blood of their fellow-men: and for what object? To gain possession of a part of the earth! ... The highest of created beings fighting to obtain the lowest form of matter, earth! ...

I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. ... Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content.

Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship and happiness."


~ Bahá'i Writings
