SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 1, January 30

Sorry for the delay in getting this first post out for the Season for Nonviolence!



 Day 1, Jan 30:

 Today, I contemplate Mahatma Gandhi’s statement,

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a great dream.  Many other people did, too.  But King practiced what he preached.  Envision how you would like everyone to live.  Then do today what you wish everyone would do.


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.
