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 power , and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells
Wakan – Tanka ( the Great Spirit ) , 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 .
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 .
