There is no peace except the peace of God.
For God is Love, and only Love brings peace. And peace is joyous! Ego knows not Love and is disruption, quite opposed to peace. Shift to Love and peace is ever-present.
1 Seek you no further. No point in looking for what is not there. You will not find peace except the peace of God. It’s the only Peace; there is no other. So You won’t find it if You look elsewhere. Accept this fact, and save yourself the agony of yet more bitter disappointments, bleak despair, and sense of icy hopelessness and doubt. Seek you no further. There is nothing else for you to find except the peace of God, unless you seek for misery and pain, which is quite insane.
2 This is the final point to which each one must come at last, to lay aside all hope of finding happiness where there is none, of being saved by what can only hurt, of making peace of chaos, joy of pain and Heaven out of hell. Save Yourself the grief! Just go straight to God. Attempt no more to win through losing nor to die to live. You cannot but be asking for defeat. For it is in Living that You find Eternal Love and Life.
3 Yet you can ask as easily for love, for happiness, and for eternal life in peace that has no ending. What could be better? And they all are available just for the asking! Amazing! Ask for this, and you can only win. To ask for what you have already must succeed. To ask that what is false be true can only fail. Forgive yourself for vain imaginings, and seek no longer what you cannot find. Yet this is the way the ego does direct You constantly. It has o wisdom; none whatsoever! For what could be more foolish than to seek and seek and seek again for hell, when you have but to look with open eyes to find that Heaven lies before you, through a door that opens easily to welcome you? For Heaven has been waiting expectantly for Your return. Don’t disappoint Us, and don’t cheat Yourself of great happiness. Why would You do so by listening to the foolish ego, when God Herself is calling You to Home?
4 Come home. Delay no longer. Heaven awaits You now, without dying! You have not found your happiness in foreign places – i.e. in the worlds – and in alien forms – of matter bodies – which have no meaning to you, though you sought to make them meaningful. (You invented them, then deliberately forgot You did so that You could pretend that they were real. You convinced Yourself. And yet You could not make them really real. You still can’t do it.) This world is not where you belong. You are a stranger here. But it is given you to find the means whereby the world no longer seems to be a prison house for you or anyone. We have called this the happy dream; the step before Your return to God, to Heaven.
5 Freedom is given you where you beheld but chains and iron doors. Your mind is being freed from ego dreams. Then You step into the happy dream, then return to Heaven. For you must change your mind about the purpose of the world if you would find escape. It is not a place to stay in dreams, but to begin to waken through the door of Love that We have called forgiveness. For what addicts You here are Your many grudges. You will be bound till all the world is seen by you as blessed and everyone made free of your mistakes and honored as he is. You made him not; no more yourself. For this perception is not real, but simply narrowed vision. And as you free the one, the other is accepted as he is. Which means that You can go Home together.
6 What does forgiveness do? In truth it has no function and does nothing, for it is unknown in Heaven, where it would be simply incomprehensible to God’s Son. It is only hell where it is needed and where it must serve a mighty function. For hell is the awful home of grudges. Just endless grudges! Is not the escape of God’s beloved Son from evil dreams that he imagines, yet believes are true, a worthy purpose? Would You not be freed? Who could hope for more while there appears to be a choice to make between success and failure, love and fear? Such a strange idea, of opposites, What could oppose God’s great magnificence! It is everything!
Nonetheless, the dream is quite convincing. You believe in it, and want Your satisfaction, also known as retribution. Enters forgiveness with a different plan: free the prisoners who have provoked Your ire. Let them go; i.e. forgive them.
“This is insane!” screams the ego. “They must suffer for their sins against Me! They cannot get off scot free!” The ego simply cannot – will not – comprehend forgiveness.
7 There is no peace except the peace of God because He has one Son, who cannot make a world in opposition to God’s Will and to his own, which is the same as His. What could he hope to find in such a world? It cannot have reality because it never was created. It must be a dream! Yet how does He awaken from the dream? He knows not how, so looks for pleasure in it, where it cannot possibly be found. Is it here that he would seek for peace? Or must he see that, as he looks on it, the world can but deceive? Yet can he learn to look on it another way and find the peace of God. It is this way that We are learning here.
8 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. We must learn to see things differently right where We are dreaming. Peace is the answer to conflicting goals, to senseless journeys, frantic, vain pursuits, and meaningless endeavors. What will bring peace but Your forgiveness of what never was and what never could be. Now the way is easy, sloping gently toward the bridge where freedom lies within the peace of God.
9 Let us not lose our way again today. We go to Heaven, and the path is straight. Only if we attempt to wander can there be delay and needless wasted time on thorny byways. Let’s make sure to forget all Our grudges. God alone is sure, and He will guide our footsteps. He will not desert His Son in need, nor let him stray forever from his home. The Father calls; the Son will hear, and surely answer. And that is all there is to what appears to be a world apart from God where bodies have reality. Our stories are now seen to be only silly dreams, not real.
10 Now is there silence. Seek no further. You have come to where the road is carpeted with leaves of false desires, fallen from the trees of hopelessness you sought before. Now are they underfoot. Forget the past for it was but a dream, more like a nightmare. And you look up and on toward Heaven, with the body’s eyes but serving for an instant longer now. Peace is already recognized at last, and you can feel its soft embrace surround your heart and mind with comfort and with love. And You remember there is only Love.
11 Today we seek no idols. Peace can not be found in them. The peace of God is ours, and only this will we accept and want. Peace be to us today. Not just those words, but the joyous feeling. For we have found a simple, happy way to leave the world of ambiguity and to replace our shifting goals and solitary dreams with single purpose and companionship. For peace is union if it be of God, the One Source of peace. We seek no further. We are close to home and draw still nearer every time we say:
12 There is no peace except the peace of God,
And I am glad and thankful it is so. And it becomes My glad experience.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
