SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 39, March 9

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN MY PERSPECTIVE OF OTHERS

Day 39, Mar. 9:

Today, I KNOW and live my Oneness with all living beings!

 Gautama Buddha said, “He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.”  When we think of ourselves as separate and different, we are more likely to see others as enemies.  When we see our true nature as part of and connected to all living beings, we want to live in peace with 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.
