Chasing the wrong demons

with 2 comments

“When you chase the wrong demons, the real ones run ahead of you in the mist, let you fall through the gap and watch you tumble down the abyss. This is how individuals die before their time, societies collapse and civilizations perish.” – jLaLi FaqeeR

  1. There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead.

    • “The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes from within the souls of men 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 first known that true peace which is within the souls of men.” – Black Elk
