“There is evil and disorder in the world because people have forgotten that all things emanate from one source. Return to that source and leave behind all self-centered thoughts, petty desires, and anger. Those who are possessed by nothing possess everything.”
John Stevens, The Art of Peace

“Why is there so much contention in our world?” Thus agitated, Morihei grabbed the tree and single-handedly moved it to its new location. Onisaburo happened to be present as well and said to Morihei, “That is the power of righteous indignation. Channel that tremendous force into the proper activity and you will accomplish wonderful things.”
John Stevens, The Art of Peace

“Contemplate the workings of this world, listen to the words of the wise, and take all that is good as your own. With this as your base, open your own door to truth. Do not overlook the truth that is right before you.”
John Stevens, The Art of Peace
