PEACE PILGRIM - An American Sage

PEACE PILGRIM - 1908-1981

If you are a member of my Facebook fan page,you will have noticed that I have been quoting a lot from someone named Peace Pilgrim. If you’ve never heard of her, it’s time you did. An important American Sage, she embraced peace and she was, and continues to be, a beacon of spiritual light.

As it says on the web site created in her name:

From 1953 to 1981 a silver haired woman calling herself only "Peace Pilgrim" walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food." In the course of her 28 year pilgrimage she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America. Her message was both simple and profound. It continues to inspire people all over the world:

"This is the way of peace: overcome evil with good,and falsehood with truth, and hatred with love."Peace Pilgrim

Enjoy this special hour documentary, and may she move you toward positive awareness, as she has moved myself and so many others.
