SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 57, March 27

7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE FOR MOTHER EARTH

Day 57, March 27:

Today, I plant seeds–plants or constructive ideas.

Everyone contributes to a peaceful world–those who work with their hands and those who work with their minds.  (Of course, everyone does some of each.)  Gandhi said, “To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves.”  So look down at the soil today and do something to nourish a plant.  Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “I have a dream…” and described a vision for us which inspired a great social revolution.  So look up today for a vision of a better world to come, and do a little something to bring it about.

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.
