SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 32, March 2

8 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN RECREATION

Day 32, Mar. 2:

Today, I choose to compassionately encourage a child to notice and eliminate the sources of violence in his/her life.

“As the twig is bent, the tree inclines,” said Virgil long ago.  Children exposed to peaceful input will be more peaceful adults.  What can you say, do, or give to a child today that will direct his/her attention toward something constructive and away from negative input?  Might you read aloud, share a story or creative activity, or just listen to whatever the child wants to say?

 

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.
