SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 47, March 17


Day 47, Mar. 17:

Today, I am open to other ways of thinking and acting that are different from my own.

Thich Nhat Hanh says, “When you understand, you cannot help but love.  Practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.”  When we are hired to accomplish tasks, we may forget that those around us are multi-dimensional human beings.  We don’t shed our humanity at the workplace door.  Whether minimum wage workers or CEOs, all have minds, hearts, bodies and souls.  All need love and understanding.  Keep that in mind today as you deal with them.

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.
