Poles for Peace

The Peace Labyrinth and Peace Pole of Aruba’s Alto Vista Chapel.

Alongside numerous labyrinths we can also find Peace Poles planted. The association with the meditative nature of the path of a labyrinth and the idea of peace is joined together as when we relax, reflect and go to our known source, we discover harmony flowing more naturally. We can get in touch with what peace is all about.

Peace Poles are sometimes set in the center of the design and other times set off in a designated spot to honor the concept in a special way. The poles have inscriptions that have many languages bearing the message of peace.

The concept of Peace Poles comes from the World Prayer Society and is the manifestation of Masahisa Goi, a man who made it his life’s work to spread the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” which is the inscription that is entered in many languages on each pole. He started this mission in 1955 and it continues today finding partnership in many gardens and places of retreat and reflection.

Consider adding a Peace Pole to your yard, community or organization’s labyrinth and note if it makes a difference in the way you walk or your purpose. Even if you included a simple token that represented the message, would it help to realize harmony? Walk on it and explore the possibilities of peace.

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”
