SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 12, February 10

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS

Day 12, Feb. 10:

Today, I choose to be aware of what I talk about and I refuse to gossip.

What we say adds or detracts from peace in our world.  We add to peace when our words pass through three filters.  Before speaking about another person today ask yourself: 1) Is it kind? 2) Is it true? 3) Is it necessary?  If the answer to all three is “yes,” enjoy sharing!

We learn to practice nonviolence one step at a time, one choice at a time, one day at a time.  This is how each of us, in our own way, moves the world in the direction of peace.  This is the Season for Nonviolence.

This is a part of 64 days of affirmations commemorating the Season for Nonviolence, the span of days between the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.  These writings have been adapted from 64 Days and Ways to Practice Nonviolence by the Global New Thought Movement and Compassionate Activism for Global Healing by the Association for Global New Thought and added to by Tanya Mayer and Paul Friedman. They are grouped in 9 categories: nonviolence toward self, in close relationships, in my communication, in recreation, in my perspective of others, in daily living, in work, for mother earth and in our world.
