Fav Quote Friday | Body and Spirit: True Peace

At the center of the universe 
the Great Spirit dwells,
 and that center is everywhere;
 it is within each of us, within the souls of people,
when they realize their relationship
with the universe and all its powers.
This is the source of True Peace. 
~Black Elk, Oglala Sioux, 

 "Everything the Power of the World 
does is done in a circle. The sky is round, 
and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball,
 and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls.
 Birds make their nests in circles,
 for theirs is the same religion as ours.
 The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle.
 The moon does the same, and both are round. 
Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, 
and always come back again to where they were. 
The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood,
 and so it is in everything where power moves."
~Black Elk, Oglala Sioux
