Peace Pilgrim. “I shall not accept more than I need, while others in the world have less than they need.”

“I shall not accept more than I need, while others in the world have less than they need.”
Peace Pilgrim.

Jeg fandt Peace Pilgrim, da jeg fornylig læste Moneyless Manifesto af Mark Boyle og blev nysgerrig.

Jeg lånte et par ting af hende via bibliotek.dk. Og følte denne indre glæde, ligesom da jeg “mødte” Henry David Thoreau og Sarah Ban Breathnach. Denne følelse af … holdbarhed og livsvæsentlighed.

“On both side of us as we walked were displayed the things we can buy if we are willing to stay in the orderly lines day after day, year after year. Some of the things are more or less useful, many are utter trash. Some have a claim to beauty, many are garishly ugly. Thousands of things are displayed – and yet, my friends, the most valueable are missing, Freedom is not displayed, nor health, nor happiness, nor peace of mind. To obtain these things, my friends, you too may need to escape from the orderly lines and risk being looked upon disdainfully.”

Peace Pilgrim er en kvinde, som gav alle sine ejendele væk for at gå for fred. Lidt fra en hjemmeside, som er lavet omkring hende:
“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.”

Hendes nedskrevne ord og tanker er samlet i en bog. Af denne bog findes et lille uddrag oversat til dansk. Begge dele kan man downloade gratis fra hendes hjemmeside. Det er simpelthen en gave!
Hele bogen kan findes her:
Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Work in Her Own Words

Og uddrag oversat til dansk findes her:
Vejen til indre fred af Peace Pilgrim

Jeg har selv printet det lille hæfte ud på dansk og jeg har bestilt bogen, for det er en “må eje” bog. Men giv dig selv lidt tid og læs det lille hæfte på dansk jeg linker til… Det er simpelthen ♥
