The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes from within when we realize our relationship, our oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when we realize that at the centre “peace” 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 first known that true peace which is within the soul. – Black Elk
