SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 14, February 12

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS

Day 14, Feb. 12:

Today, I reflect on whom I need to forgive and take at least one step in that direction.

William Shakespeare said, “Being rancorous is like taking poison and expecting someone else to die.”  Take that first step toward forgiveness, both for the other person and for yourself.

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.
