Imagine Peace


Can you imagine a world without war?

May it be your will Eternal One our God and God of our ancestors that war and bloodshed will cease.
That a treat, wonderful peace will envelope the whole world,
And nation will not lift up sword against nation, and neither shall they learn war any more.
Only will all the inhabitants of the earth become acquainted with and know this tuth:
We do not come into this world for fighting or quarrels, and not for hatred, zealotry, destruction or spilling of blood.
Rather, we have only come into the world to know you God and to praise you forever.

 

So, please have mercy upon us, and fulfill the promise written Scriptures:

 

I will grant peace to the land. You shall lie down and none shall be afraid.

 

I will rid the land of vicious beasts and the sword shall not cross your lands.

 

Justice will swell up like water, righteousness like a mighty stream.

 

And all of the earth shall be filled with the knowing of the Eternal One as the water fills the sea.

 

—A Nineteenth Century Jewish Prayer for Peace

 

 

A Sufi Prayer for Peace

Send Thy Peace, O Lord, which is perfect and everlasting; that our souls may radiate peace.

Send Thy Peace, O Lord, that we may think, act, and speak harmoniously.

Send Thy Peace, O Lord, that we may be contented and thankful for Thy bountiful gifts.

Send Thy Peace, O Lord, that amidst our worldly strife we may enjoy Thy bliss.

Send Thy Peace, O Lord, that we may endure all, tolerate all in the thought of Thy grace and mercy.

Send Thy Peace, O Lord, that our lives may become a divine vision, and in Thy light all darkness may vanish.

Send Thy, Peace, O Lord, our Father and Mother, that we Thy children on earth may all unite in one brotherhood.

—Hazrat Inayat Khan

We all, no matter what our spiritual path or religion, we all will benefit from a lasting peace. I encourage all the people in the world who believe in peace to work for it. Stand up, speak out. If you live under a dictator leave the country and contact the United Nations. Remember there are people in every country who love peace and will help. I know that while we have to pray, we also have to work for peace, write about peace, call your government officials, write to your leaders and to your Pastors, Rabbis, Priests, and Sheiks. Ask for peace, tell them why you want peace. Meditate on peace. Begin with peace within yourself and then go on to peace within your community, and then within your country.

We, the extraordinary people who believe and will speak out for peace in our world can and will make a difference. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, or what you believe. Just embrace the concept of peace and we can change Our World.

This symbol is for peace. May everyone remember it still is the international symbol for the work of making peace.

    I LOVE this post! Please share it, post it, email and DO IT!!!;-) War is just about the most useless, pointless and utterly awful thing human beings have ever invented and it’s long due to be retired, discarded and put to rest forever.

    Thank you for posting this, it is beautiful! Would you mind if I forwarded it in email with the link to this post so more people will see it? I believe that the vast majority of people on Earth do want peace and only think that they are in a minority in their beliefs. I feel like if we keep talking to one another and sharing these things it won’t take too long for the people to realize that hey! We peace lovers are the majority and the wars need to stop right now;-)

  8. Thank you for stopping and following my blog today. This post caught my eye the other day and brought to mind John Lennon’s song of the same name. I am often struck by the idea that peace is such a deeply held idea regardless of culture and your poems serve to confirm.

    I look forward to following another rebel’s blog.

    Take care,

    Ivon
