The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

At the center of the Universe dwells the Great Spirit

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the Universe and all its powers…

When they realize that at the center of the Universe dwells the Great Spirit (Wakan-Tanka), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and others are but reflections of this.

The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which is within the souls of human beings…”
