SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 58, March 28


Day 58, March 28:

Today, I practice nonviolence by protecting and nurturing all life: plant, animal and human.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve…you only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”  Dr. King was best known for his leadership in the civil rights movement.  But his compassion extended to a much wider range of causes.  He was an anti-war advocate, an environmentalist, and a religious leader.  He defined himself not by his designated role but by his heart-felt principles wherever they applied.  What principles run your life?  Today, take an action in an area of life you care about but may have done little about before.  Live your principles.

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.
