Here we see Peace Being walking a new path, away from the land of Squares & Triangles, toward the bright unknown sun. PB seems to be reassuring his friend that the trip is going to be OK. The friend is iWorld the world globe with many eyes, representing the searching and comparing tendencies of the human mind that is always looking around, worrying, dealing with difficulties and reluctant to change.
Peace Being has four eyes. Two are open, always looking out at the world, and two closed that always search inside his own thoughts and feelings. There is a tear that represents all the sorrow in the world, and a bandage for all the hurt and suffering. On the top there is a heart that symbolizes the power of love. There are olive leaves on each side which offer peace, and the flower petals allude to impermanence. Peace Being has all the different major skin color groups of human beings, which is meant to show racial tolerance and equanimity.
