SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 25, Feb. 23

8 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN RECREATION

Day 25, February 23:

Today, I become aware of the violence I expose myself to on a daily basis and take steps to eliminate those sources.

Notice the happenings in your day which interfere with peacefulness: the negative or vengeful thoughts, the gossip, the sensationalist, attention-grabbing exaggeration in newspapers and media.  Reduce the time you give to them. 

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.
