Oneness with the Universe

A universe to be at one with
A universe to be at one with

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.

  1. Nicholas Black Elk is right on!! Oh, if the whole world could realize the Great Spirit is within each of us and all of creation, I do believe there would be no more violence, no more wars and we would respecfully bow down before creation and each other.

    • Right on, Dolores. I see you are a Sparkill Dominican Sister. I’ll be seeing Eileen Gannon at the end of this week for the DVUSA Board meeting. She’s another sister who would definitely agree! Peace, Pat 🙂

  2. Pat, OPreach today is very beautiful. If only those bent on destruction could incorporate the concept of oneness with the universe into their being. Thank you so much.
