"Peace is the breath of our spirit.
It wells up from within the depths of our being to refresh, to heal, to inspire...."
Thus begins the Universal Peace Covenant, an amazing declaration of peace penned by two dozen human beings from a diversified range of age, background, religious faith, and nationality. Intuition is the direct grasp of truth and these documents reflect truths that are timeless and universally applicable.
Perhaps it is best reflected in this classic story...
There once was a king who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The king looked at all the pictures but there were only two he really liked, and he had to choose between them.
One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for peaceful towering mountains all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.
The other picture had mountains too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky, from which rain fell and in which lightning played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all.
But when the king looked closely, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest in perfect peace.
Which picture do you think won the prize?
The king chose the second picture. Do you know why?
"Because," explained the king, "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace."
This is the peace we court each day through our studies. The peace we reach to describe in the Universal Peace Covenant. The peace we spread during the Universal Hour of Peace. Peace of Mind.
