7 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN MY PERSPECTIVE OF OTHERS
Day 38, Mar. 8:
Today, I learn a prayer or spiritual practice from another tradition that seems strange or different to me.
Gandhi noted, “If we are to respect others’ religions as we would have them respect our own, a friendly study of the world’s religions is a sacred duty.”
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.
