“My Grandmother in 1893 when she was born, about 10 years old, she went to a big mountain and she saw the world. To the North, it was 450 km she could see … to the South, 450 km to the end of the curvature of the Earth. She could see 900 km with her own bare eyes. So she saw the world and she realized – and I grew up knowing the story – that you and I, we have grown apart. We have developed ice in our heart. And they say: Only by melting the ice in the heart of Man, Man will have a chance to change and begin using his knowledge wisely. And with that wisdom, we could really unite the world. None of us, and absolutely none of us, can live isolated from each other. We need each other. As my Grandmother would say to us: you need all the help you can get. I came here to get the help … so I can learn to recognize you by recognizing myself … so that I can learn to love you by loving myself … so I can learn to honor you by honoring myself .. so that I can learn to trust you by learning to trust myself.
I have the honor to welcome spiritual leaders from all over the world together with you. I thank the Universal Sufi Council for bringing the Peace Pledge Project to Greenland – to Kalaallit Nunaat in my language. Let us connect with the land, do Ceremony together and melt the ice in our hearts at the Big Ice, melting away so fast.
Takoqqissaagut, see you soon,
A shamanic spiritual walk in silence will help us come home to ourselves. We may connect with our own ancestors, visiting the ancient ceremonial longhouse and the remainders of the village where Angaangaq´s beloved Grandmother Aanakasaa would be in summer and his ancestors would go hunting.
There is no better place to join the Peace Pledge Pilgrimage than Greenland – the only Country on Earth where Man lives and there has never been war. This land only knows Peace and you can feel it Walking the land.
