Wholeness in Living: Kindling the Inner Light Inner Peace “A

golden stepping stone to the recognition of wholeness comes from the experience of inner peace. This is the result of living in harmony with divine laws. At peace, a feeling of total unity with all creation prevails. As awareness expands, it becomes possible to develop a profound sense of connectedness with the source of universal energy and the power that arises from living at peace with ourselves and all those we are in contact with. Love transforms the world.”

Affirmations for Contemplation ✴ The seeds of inner peace reside within me and my heart opens wide in a joyous embracing of all creation. ✴ My heart has found the shrine where peace resides.

Helene forwarded all correspondence to Peace, wherever she happened to be at the time.
