SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 50, March 20

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN WORK

Day 50, Mar. 20:

Today, I work to help others resolve differences.

“My life is my message,” said Gandhi.  Let your life message today be “peace.”  People often get stuck in a conflict that they want desperately to resolve.  But there may be too much distrust or animosity between the participants for them to reach an agreement on their own.  They may need the help of a neutral, peace-loving third party.  Perhaps you can provide that kind of assistance.  Not to judge right and wrong, but to suggest a way both parties can get their essential needs met in that situation, so they achieve a win-win outcome.

 

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.
