Statement of Peace
By the Triangle Center for Spiritual Living in Raleigh, NC
“Our time should be devoted to knowing the Truth that sets humanity free from the problem of ignorance; that Truth which alone can bring enlightenment to the world, that war should cease, that people should live together in harmony because they have recognized the Divinity within each other.” ~ Ernest Holmes
The Triangle Center for Spiritual Living stands for world peace in our lifetime. We stand for peace in the presence of conflict; for love in the presence of hatred; for forgiveness in the presence of injury.
We honor the many names for God, and we honor the many paths to God; for there is only one Power and Presence that we call God and that God is our Source and the Essence of Love.
In diversity and multiplicity we see the Unity of all life. All sentient beings are celebrated and held in high regard. We embrace everyone regardless of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, age, etc. Our differences are seen as our gifts and we welcome their expression.
We have embraced the ancient wisdom of the world’s spiritual traditions and individually experience a peace from within which is manifested fully in our world. Our respect for all life transforms our sense of dominion over nature into the role of responsible guardian and caretaker. The policies and practices of our organization are extensions of our love of life and our respect for the Intelligence of Nature. We see a world where people are spontaneously awakening from their collective dream of separation and limitation into the glorious realization that all is One, and that the qualities of the One are the qualities of God—goodness, love, peace, wholeness and abundant life.
We see a world where violence is nonexistent in our consciousness and therefore in our world. We see a world shifting from competition to cooperation, from weaponry to creativity, and from violent reactions to communication and compromise.
We see a world where wise and compassionate choices have resulted in the renewal and restoration of the Earth’s natural ecology and her resources. We honor planet Earth, the provider of sustenance of our earthly life.
We see a world where all people live together in respect and mutual support, creating paths to peace and justice where global resources are shared by all. We envision a world free of fear and hatred. We see a world where people everywhere come to know and care for their neighbors, and where each individual is nurtured as family.We see a world where the richness of human and religious diversity is woven into the fabric of life.
We see a world where each person holds their highest vision as their personal destiny. Relationships are formed to support and encourage the full revealing of one’s True Self. We see an awakened world holding the consciousness of its people that reflects the ethic: “As above so below. As within so without. It is done unto us as we believe.”
We see a world where hearts are open to the continuous influx of human kindness and love and where we know ourselves as one human family. As a result of our individual and collective choice to awaken to the eternal Truth of our Unity with all of life, we choose to live as universal citizens who are responsible for our immediate experience and the continuum of all life. We share this vision of Peace in an awakened world and know it is truly within our reach.
And So It Is!!
