The memory of God comes to the quiet mind.
It cannot come where there is conflict, for a mind at war against itself remembers not eternal gentleness.
The means of war are not the means of peace, and what the warlike would remember is not love.
Conflict within you must imply that you believe the ego has the power to be victorious.
Surely you realize the ego is at war with God.
Certain it is it has no enemy.
Yet just as certain is its fixed belief it has an enemy that it must overcome and will succeed.
You may identify with this belief, but never will it be more than madness.
And fear will reign in madness and will seem to have replaced love there. This is the conflict’s purpose.
Beloveds, the war against yourself is almost over.
The journey’s end is at the place of peace.
Would you not now accept the peace offered you here?
