  • Promoting Season for Non-Violence!!!

    Today, January 30, we begin the "season for non-violence". It's a 64-day educational and grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and communities.
    It's an event that has been staged each of the last several years, inspired by the memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Ghandi, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - honoring their vision for an empowered, nonviolent world.
    Fellow MiceChatters, I will be posting affirmations for each day of this period, that I have received from my own place of "spiritual nourishment".
    This thread is meant in no way to foster any particular religious or political viewpoint. (If you'd like to know more about mine, please PM me.)
    I don't even agree with everything these two men stood for - but I do believe that there is room in this world for new ways of solving differences between nations, people and within ourselves.
    I encourage you to visit any of several websites, including http://www.agnt.org/snv02.htm for more information...and I encourage open discussion here.
    Today's affirmation:
    "Today, even though it is different, I honor the road that others travel."
    Blessings and peace...
    Barry
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

        As we enter the third day of the season for non-violence, we mark the passing of one of the great leaders in her own right...with the passing of Coretta Scott King, one day before the start of "Black History Month"...

        http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=1560208

        quoting from the article...

        "Scott King became an activist in her own right, as well, carrying messages of international peace and economic justice to organizations around the world."
        "When King was assassinated outside a motel room in Memphis, Tenn., on April 4, 1968, Scott King channeled her grief into action... later that year took she took his place as a leader of the Poor People's March in Washington, D.C."
        "Scott King continued working for equality, peace and economic justice for the remainder of her life, both in the United States and abroad..."
        Isn't there something we can all do today to honor such a grand lady's memory? In the way we choose to live and the way we respond to things that happen to us?
        Here is the affirmation for Wednesday, February 1, 2006...Day 3 of the 64-day Season For Non-Violence...

        Today, I whine less and hope more.

        Blessings, light and love...

        God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

          Is there anyone out there wanting me to continue these posts? The lack of views and replies has me wondering...

            Believe me I had the same problem with the troops thread about lack of replies and all. I thought that thread was going to be overwhelmed with replies but nope.

            But I think this is an interesting thread and I hope it keeps updated daily .

                This is Super Bowl Sunday...February 5, 2006...a day which in the past has been said to be the number one day of the year for domestic violence incidents...especially after the game ends.
                For those of us who plan to enjoy today's contest,we do so in a spirit of fun and good sportsmanship...humble in victory and as gracious as possible in defeat...keeping all things in perspective.
                Other thoughts for this day...Today, I will acknowledge every human being's fundamental right to justice, equity and equality...and today, I see the best in others.
                Namaste and blessings to all...

                            A theme for this week....Humanity...

                            As we grow as unique persons, we learn to respect the uniqueness of others.
