Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. —John 14.27
I give you the quiet peace of this present moment: without hurry, fear or need to be elsewhere, but right here, right now, as you are, at rest.
I give you the strong peace of yourself: the peace of forgiveness and my delight in who you are, with no need to prove yourself or do better.
I give you the vibrant peace of oneness with all living things, the peace of deep belonging, and reconciliation with all people.
I give you the life-giving peace of my own spirit, my love, trust and courage beating in your heart, my presence in your soul.
I give you the joyous peace of trust— trust in your life and its goodness, trust in the Beloved and your belovedness.
I give you the renewing peace of healing, of blessing hidden even in struggle and pain, of trust that even in suffering all shall be well.
I give not as the world gives, from the outside, but from within, by your being created, and it cannot be taken away.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
