Black Elk: All Things Are Our Relatives

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

All things are our relatives; 
what we do to everything, 
we do to ourselves. 
All is really One. 

- Black Elk
