BACK COVER Peace Pilgrim, an authentic American sage, walked the roads of our land for nearly three decades. Cheerfully penniless, she carried into schools, churches, homes, and lives a simple message about the attainment of inner and outer peace. Here, Cheryl Canfield has gathered 365 of Peace’s thoughts—one for every day of the year—with space provided for your own insights and reflections. Designed to help you integrate simple spiritual truths into your life, Peace Pilgrim’s Wisdom is a powerful companion for spiritual growth. A NOTE FROM THE COMPILER Meditations on the thoughts collected here provide a simple format and guide for study and self-reflection. The idea is not to accept them or reject them, but to take them inside to reflect upon. There are 365 thoughts, one for each day of the year. You can start from any time right at the beginning or choose topics of special interest or current relevance to you. Each day a thought can be used to ponder during a quiet moment. It is very centering to focus on the most meaningful and permanent aspects of life in the morning, to set a tone for the day, and in the evening, to bring this focus into the restful hours of sleep. For avid learners seeking to connect more strongly with the wonderful inner resources that are available when we find and listen to our own inner guidance, I suggest using this book in conjunction with or as a personal journal. Creating space for quiet reflection and journaling may well be the catalyst for making the best use of the rest of your life.

SELECTED QUOTES from Peace Pilgrim's Wisdom #89 The key word for our time is practice. We have all the light we need, we just need to put it into practice. #33 In that first glimpse of inner peace, I experienced oneness with the creatures that walk the earth, with the air, with the water, with the earth itself. And most wonderful of all—a oneness with that which many would call God. #70 All people can be peace workers. Whenever you bring harmony into any
unpeaceful situation, you contribute to the total peace picture. Insofar as you have peace in your life, you reflect it into your world. #88 There is a magic formula for avoiding conflict. It is this: Be concerned that you do not offend, not that you are not offended. #192 Every good thing you do, every good thing you say, every good thought you think, vibrates on and never ceases. The evil remains only until it is overcome by the good, but the good remains forever. #238 When you live in constant communication with God, you cannot be lonely. When you perceive the working of God’s wonderful plan, and know that all good effort bears good fruit, you cannot be discouraged. #222 Live in the present. Do all the things that need to be done. Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold. #282 If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a defeatist or negative thought. Since we create through thought, we need to concentrate very strongly on positive thoughts. #294 There is a well-worn road which is pleasing to the senses and gratifies worldly desires, but leads to nowhere. And there is the less traveled path, which requires purifications and relinquishments, but results in untold spiritual blessings.
