Peace, one and all…

‘The extent to which we are in God is the extent to which we know peace, and without God there is no peace.  Only if something is in God does it have peace.  In so far as we are in God, thus far we have peace.  And so we can judge whether we are in God or not, and if so to what extent we in Him, by noting whether we possess peace or not.  For where we are without peace, there we cannot have peace, for the absence of peace comes from the creature and not from God.  There is nothing in God of which we should be afraid, but rather all that is in Him is to be loved.  Nor is there anything in Him which may be the cause of sadness’
