May Peace Prevail On Earth
SAY IT WRITE IT EXPRESS IT
The Universal Message and Prayer, May Peace Prevail On Earth, was conceived in a
moment of great inspiration by Masahisa Goi of Japan. Since its birth over half
a century ago, the simple yet profound words, May Peace Prevail On Earth, has
reached deep into the hearts and lives of global citizens everywhere.
The May Peace Prevail On Earth movement is a grassroots global movement to
inspire, and re-awaken the inherit consciousness of love, peace and harmony
which exists in everyone of us. It is a movement to bring inner peace of mind
and to foster peace in the world at large.
The power of May Peace Prevail On Earth lies in its capacity to bring people of
various cultures, faith traditions and political ideals together as one united
global heart and mind. The Message allows us to sincerely focus on our mutual
desire to serve, create and manifest true peace on earth while transcending our
differences and celebrating our common humanity.
In the original Japanese version of May Peace Prevail On Earth, the character
for 'Earth' includes not only humankind but 'Life in all Realms of Creation'.
When we speak the words, May Peace Prevail on Earth imagine that the frequency
and energy field of Love, Peace and Harmony reaches the kingdom of plants
animals and all of Creation including our solar system, the cosmos and the
Universe at large.
