SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 63, April 2

4 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN OUR WORLD

Day 63, April 2:

Today, I serve humanity by dedicating myself to a vision greater than myself.

Cesar Chavez, farm activist said, “Nonviolence is not non-action…It is hard work…It is the patience to win.”  Take a moment today to recall a cause you once cared about fervently, but have since become disillusioned about.  Remind yourself that victory goes only to those who persist.  Step back into that arena and do something today toward continuing the struggle as if you never left it.

 

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.
