International Day of Peace and the Peace Pilgrim

Did you know that yesterday, September 21st, was the International Day of Peace?  Neither did I until just  yesterday.  I guess it just isn't a big commercial hit, like such an important holiday as Halloween.    

While researching this topic I was surprised to learn of a woman who became "Peace Pilgrim" and walked 25,000 miles as a penniless sojourner, while sharing the message of peace.  Following are some of her thoughts about attaining inner peace.  More detail is provided from the Peace Pilgrim website.


1. Assume right attitude toward life

2. Live good beliefs.

3. Find your place in the Life Pattern.

4. Simplify life to bring inner and outer well-being into harmony.


1. Purification of the bodily temple.

2. Purification of the thoughts.

3. Purification of the desires.

4. Purification of motives.


1. Relinquishment of self-will.

2. Relinquishment of the feeling of separateness.

3. Relinquishment of attachments.

4. Relinquishment of all negative feelings.
