The Gift Of Peace is a small book published by the Brahma Kumaris that will cost you £2.00. The book was written by on of the long serving students and teacher of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University just after he visited New York 3 weeks after September 11th 2001. It is a fantastic collection of thoughts, sayings and advice on how to be peaceful and happy.
Here is one excerpt that hit home for me:
Circumstances are like objects. They are not alive; you bring life to them.
The positive is more powerful than the negative. The positive is innate. The negative indicates what is missing inside you. Light exists and its absence is darkness.
Never forget you are a human being who can decide the attitude you take in life.
You have an enourmous positive inner potential still to be discovered. these thoughts will help you face any circumstance in life with a different perspective.
This resonates a lot of truth for me when I sit back and think about it.
