Preview A Guide to True Peace Revisited in Kindle and gift size paperback at Amazon.com
There is a way of living and moving and having our being that is happy
and care free, and through which we can find the love to solve our
problems and prevent new ones.
We need love to deal kindly and wisely with our family and acquaintances.
We need love to be patient with our own errors. We need understanding to
respond wisely to others and to gain insight into the nature of
our own mental and emotional issues.
Few have written as beautifully and convincingly about the inner way
to the blessed life as Madame Jeanne Guyon, Francois Fenelon
and Michael Molinos.
It is from their timeless writings that this book is gleaned.
Newly edited with a special introduction by Roland Trujillo,
this jewel will become one of your favorite companions as you discover
in each of these three mystical writers a kindred spirit.
Here is what A. B. Simpson had to say about A Guide to True Peace:
Years ago a friend placed in my hand a little book which became one of the turning points in my life. It was "True Peace." It was an old medieval message, and it had but one thought--that God was waiting in the depth of my being to talk with me if I would only get still enough to hear Him. I thought this would be a very easy matter, so I began to get still. But I had no sooner commenced than a perfect pandemonium of voices reached my ears, a thousand clamoring notes from without and within, until I could hear nothing but their noise and din. Some of them were my own voice, some of them were my own questions, some of them my own cares, some of them my own prayers. Others were suggestions of the tempter and the voices of the world's turmoil. Never before did there seem to be so many things to be done, to be said, to be thought; and in every direction I was pulled and pushed and greeted with noisy acclamations and unspeakable unrest. It seemed necessary for me to listen to some of them, but God said, "Be still, and know that I am God." Then came the conflict of thoughts for the morrow and its duties and cares; but God said, "Be still." And then there came the very prayers which my restless heart wanted to press upon Him; but God said, "Be still." (from Simpson Anecdotes compiled my Miss Emma Beere)
