In 1953, Peace Pilgrim began her pilgrimage, to walk in the name of nonviolence. She never asked anyone for any food and always refused money. She had no organizational backing. Years later, when she finally reached the 25,000 miles, Peace Pilgrim visited the United Nations and the US White House. She was elated to drop off the tens of thousands of signatures asking for concord. But this was not the end. Peace Pilgrim illustrate the passage of inner growth: You come to the point where you rise high enough in consciousness to look at the entire universe through the eyes of the Higher Nature.
