7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN MY COMMUNICATION
Day 22, February 20:
Today, I greet this day–everyone and everything–with openness and acceptance as if I were encountering them for the first time.
Look at all you see with the eyes of an innocent child today. Employ no past ideas to create judgment, rather enjoy a fresh world of wonder.
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.
