The First Peace

I want to thank Aguycalledbloke and  Anita Bowen at Onelightonesource for nominating me for the 3-Day Quote Challenge.  The rules are simple: I must thank those who nominated me, post one quote per day for three consecutive days, and nominate new bloggers each day. Today’s quote:


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 at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.

–Black Elk  1863 – 1950

I have to admit, I don’t like to follow arbitrary and capricious rules, and I may not follow all the rules, here. After all, I have a full-time job and a part-time business and I’m just not sure my three days will be in a row. I’ll go ahead and nominate three of my blogging friends, but if they are not interested in participating, I won’t hold it against them! The blogosphere is a place of flexibility and meant to bring joy in connecting; I don’t want to make blogging a chore for any one.

I nominate:
