John Muir on the Peace of wild life

First Light-- painting by John C. Pitcher

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.

This grand show is eternal.

 It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; 

a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, 

eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents

 and islands, each in its turn, 

as the round earth rolls.

~ John Muir
