10 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE TOWARD SELF
Day 9, Feb. 7:
Today, I live in the present moment and release the past.
Poet and activist, Maya Angelou turned a traumatic childhood experience into a catalyst for creativity and achievement. Reflect on a painful incident in your life and find the gift it has given you. You may want to share that with others. Bless it, release the memory and be here now.
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.
