Below is one of my favorite readings from the Essene Gospels, from the section titled The Sevenfold Peace. In the book I have, this is on pages 61-63:
This passage would seem very appropriate for today’s times. What would happen if we released our greed and fear of scarcity to live in peace with one another? And when will we recognize that we are very diverse, yet all people are equal in the heart of God? This reading says that those who have found peace with the brotherhood of man make themselves co-workers with God.
May peace be with you this day.
“Blessed is the Child of Light
Who doth build on earth
The kingdom of heaven,
For he shall dwell in both worlds.
Thou shalt follow the Law of the Brotherhood,
Which saith that none shall have wealth,
And none shall be poor,
And all shall work together
In the garden of the Brotherhood.
Yet each shall follow his own path,
And each shall commune with his own heart.
For in the Infinite Garden
There are many and diverse flowers:
Who shall say that one is best
Because its color is purple,
Or that one is favored
Because its stalk is long and slender?
Though the brothers
Be of different complexion,
Yet do they all toil
In the vineyard of the Earthly Mother,
And they all do lift their voices together
In praise of the Heavenly Father.
And together they break the holy bread,
And in silence share the holy meal
There shall be no peace among peoples
Till there be one garden of the brotherhood
Over the earth.
For how can there be peace
When each man pursueth his own gain
And doth sell his soul into slavery?
Thou, Child of Light,
Do ye gather with thy brothers
And then go ye forth
To teach the ways of the Law
To those who would hear.
He who hath found peace
With the brotherhood of man
Hath made himself
The co-worker of God
Know this peace with thy mind,
Desire this peace with thy heart,
Fulfill this peace with thy body.”
