"Peace is not the absence of conflict,
but the ability to cope with it."

In early days it was documented that universal respect was sparked by "peace pipe" ceremonies... The ceremony was held across all native peoples , even those at war with each other. It was once told that presenting the pipe during battle would actually halt the fighting. Not so long ago I featured our brother Justin Quesada (Ontario) on Soulspeak , and here he is Peace Pipe Ceremony "Juan es amor y paz" being the warm soul that he is among some equally warm souls ...doing a peace pipe ceremony in honour of our ancestors and the cause they once fought and the legacy of love and truth and peace they left behind. Thank you Justin and the Justin Party Crew for remembering...
"The first day of the Toronto Occupy Movement, October 15th 2011. Honoring the Ancestors with my father's sacred peace pipe. The engraving in the pipe say "Juan es amor y paz", which means, "John is love and peace". This pipe was given by his friends who felt he deserved the gift and honor. Sowing seeds and intentions for world peace. We must heal together. "
