Peace Pilgrim

Mildred Lisette Norman Ryder also known as “Peace Pilgrim” was a pilgrim for peace.  After a 15 year spiritual transformation she spend 28 years walking 25,000 miles.  She did this with no money and no organization behind her, “fearlessly calling for international as well as personal disarmament.”

Her message was of “overcoming evil with good, hatred with love and falsehood with truth.”  This would be accomplished through stages of maturity.  First we must find inner peace; “then peace among individuals, the community, the nation and the world” is possible.  She also believed in the power of the mind and that we create our world with our thoughts.  Does any of this sound familiar?

Are you ready to be a peace pilgrim?  You don’t have to actually go out and walk 25,000 miles.  Walking through life with your own inner peace is the way we start.  We can all become peace pilgrims.

Information from http://www.peacepilgrim.org/ was used to research this post.

Peace Pilgrim handed out copies of her pamphlet Steps Toward Inner Peace on her journey.  You can download a copy from the website.
