There is only one Life. It is the wholeness and unity of all being. Its nature is peace and harmony, infinite wisdom, all power and unconditional love. This One is the source of all, the divine Giver of Itself to all. Creation is the perfect reflection of the essential unity and inclusivity of Oneness. There can be no separation or exclusion from the nature of pure Spirit.
We are made of this One which chooses to express Itself uniquely as each of us; each one a divine idea brought into form in order to express the love, peace and harmony that we are. Each person, every thought, idea, activity and situation is included within the perfect wholeness of the One.
From my faith in this truth I speak my word for a greater revelation of peace and harmony in our world. As I embrace a vision of unity and peace in my own heart and live that vision, my life is transformed. My peace and light are revealed to everyone I meet as kindness, generosity of spirit and faith in the essential goodness of all people. This peace cannot be diminished by any conditions of discord or injustice I see around me. These conditions call me to remember my connection to all that is, to every being on this earth—no matter what the appearance.
And so I practice peace. I share my peace with others, free from judgment or expectation. I become the peace I wish to see in the world. I accept that the hearts and minds of all people are ever more receptive and responsive to the harmony, the unity and the peace that dwell at the very center of life.
In gratitude for knowing this powerful truth, I release this word and let it be so.
And so it is.
