SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 52, March 22

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN WORK

Day 52, March 22:

 Today, I am a peacemaker, promoting nonviolent responses.

Some kinds of statements are more likely to lead to peace than to violence.  Examples are describing what we directly experience rather than generalizing about and judging others; talking about our deepest feelings rather than arguing for the superiority of our opinions; and asking people specifically for what we need, instead of expecting them to read our mind or making only vague, general demands.  Today, make an effort to use peace-producing statements like these when talking with others.

 

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.
