Message from the Minister August 2019

Peace be Still



Everything that is happening in the Universe is born in the silence, all else is but a feeble distraction of the ego: “Look at me, see what I can do, listen to me, follow me, strive, accomplish, suffer, sacrifice, bow to me, worship me,” the ego screams in constant attempts to justify its existence.

The only problem in giving the power of your attention to the ego is that you lose awareness of your peace. The Bible speaks of attaining perfect peace through focus of the mind. “He will keep thee in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee,” (Isaiah 26:3). In metaphysical terms, “He” is your own Christ-mind. When the focus of your mind is on truth, your higher mind becomes the source and the guide of your experience. The phrase, “stayed on Thee,” can then be interpreted, “focused on truth.” The scripture restated in modern language would be, “With a mind focused on truth we will always find ourselves in peace.”

One way we can find the peace we are looking for in ourselves and in the world is through forgiveness. One of my favorite lines from A Course in Miracles is, “The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.” Not only do I find my peace, I also offer it to the world.

When we truly accept our function as bringers of peace we discover what Joel Goldsmith called, “The Thunder of Silence.” We access the great power of the heavens and connect with our true divine self. The shift comes from going within and starting at the core of our being. It is the most liberating and empowering step we can take in our personal, spiritual evolution.

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to help others get in touch with the essential nature of their being each and every day. We are One in truth, and your awareness of this truth is mine as well. Your Christ-light is simply waiting to shine my friends, to help everyone awaken to their God-Self. It calls to you at every turn and speaks to your heart every moment of every day. Your light is what the Universe longs to behold. Be in peace dear ones and let your light shine.

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

Rev. Tony
