Achieving Inner Peace & Tranquility

by on October 1, 2017

Dear One,

It’s so easy to get caught up in negative news. From devastating fires, earthquakes, and hurricanes to mounting racial, religious, and political tensions, it seems there’s no end to disasters and suffering.

But allowing our negative reactions to be aroused doesn’t help the situation—or us. What does help is prayer and faith in God’s supreme power in this world.

As the great woman saint, Anandamayi Ma asked, “Don’t you think that He who created this world knows how to run it?”

The more we realize that God is in charge here, the more we will find peace in our hearts, and be able to share that peace with all. And so this issue is about finding inner peace and releasing negativity.

A friend prays “The Prayer for Protection” by James Dillet Freeman every night with her children. It’s a soldier’s prayer, written during WWII. I find it very helpful for remembering who is really in charge. I hope it helps you too.

The Light of God surrounds me.
The Love of God enfolds me.
The Power of God protects me.
The Presence of God watches over me.
The Mind of God guides me.
The Life of God flows through me.
The Laws of God direct me.
The Power of God abides within me.
The Joy of God uplifts me.
The Strength of God renews me.
The Beauty of God inspires me.
Wherever I am, God is!

With love, light, and joy—from my heart to yours,
