SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 42, March 12

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN DAILY LIVING

Day 42, Mar. 12:

Today, I smile at all whom I see.

Mother Teresa said “Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other–it doesn’t matter who it is-and that will help you grow up in greater love for each other.”  

And from the Dali Lama, “The essence of all spiritual life is your emotions, your attitude toward others.  Once you have pure and sincere motivation, all the rest follows.” 

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.
