The Three Peaces?
A Lakota (Sioux) holy man will explain,
but first –
have a look at the expressions in the two photos below.
They demonstrate Three Peaces in action.
The photos were shared, in Facebook, by Nicholas Breeze Wood from the U.K.
He’s a co-creator of the Sacred Hoop Magazine – the one shown in the photos.
“In the pages of Sacred Hoop you will find articles about a very wide range of cultures and spiritual traditions, all of which reflect this great diversity of human spiritual wisdom.”
Nicholas wrote on the photo:
“Hadzabe Bushmen in heart of Tanzania, miles from anywhere, reading Sacred Hoop Magazine.”
“Miles from anywhere…” he repeated.
Thanks to Sacred Hoop, I researched Black Elk and discovered his explanation of
The Three Peaces:
“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 Wakan-Tanka , and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the 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, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.”
#1. Peace dwells within. #2. Peace dwells between. #3. Peace dwells amongst.
On another continent, with insights from different cultures,
Tanzanian bushmen express Unity in their smiles.
Will the rest of our planet catch up?
