• 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,
    and when they realize that at the center of the universe
    dwells the Great Spirit,
    and that this center is really everywhere,
    it is within each of us.
