SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 18, Feb. 16

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN MY COMMUNICATION

Day 18, February 16:

Today, I tell the truth and speak honestly from the heart.

Today, think of one thing you haven’t told someone close to you that you think about when you are with them.  Reverse perspectives.  Imagine that this person has the same thought about you.  Would you want him/her to tell you?  Exactly how would you want it said so you could accept it?  Consider saying the thought, in that way, to that person.

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.
