Peaceful People: What is the Season for NonViolence?

2013 SNV bannerIf you dream of a peaceful world, you are in the right place.This is a new place to read good ideas about creating peace.  Do you crave a nonviolent world, but you think there is nothing you can contribute to that vision? Then here is great news for you.  There are actually simple ways you can contribute your thoughts, your prayers, and even your actions toward the creation of that peaceful world.  Here is a great program to consider.

The Season for NonViolence (SNV) was originated 15 years ago by the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT).  The SNV runs for 64 days each year, from January 30th, the anniversary of Mahatma Ghandi’s death, to April 4th, the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The SNV was created as a grassroots education and demonstration program committed to showing and growing  nonviolence as a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities.

Each day during the SNV, I am posting the thought for the day from AGNT.  I am also expanding on the meanings of the Season.  Posts for the January 30-to-February 18 period are at  However, an expanded vision of peace ministry has enfolded the need for this new place, for news and views on ways to understand the development of peace and of nonviolence.

Here is AGNT’s theme for Day 21 of SNV:

Day 21 Feb. 19: The thought for today is INSPIRATION.  There are many people who inspire us. Take a moment to reflect upon who inspires you and what characteristics you most admire in them.  See the potential that is also within you and choose to cultivate these characteristics in your daily life.

“Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere.  Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life BE Revelation.”  –Eileen Caddy

Today:  As I think of at least two people who exemplify the practice of nonviolence, I’ll acknowledge what it is I admire about them, what inspires me about them.  I’ll practice these behaviors today so that other people may be inspired and I’ll share this insight with at least three other people.

    How we view ‘our world’ is based on OUR perspective, shift that, and you change your world!
    sometimes it is as cleaning our LENSE in which we view the world.
    by looking for the inspiration, we become inspired, and inspiring!
    Beautiful thoughts Kebba, thank you for sharing!

  2. I work in a city that experienced a mass shooting (14 dead) in 2009. Sometimes it seems so hopeless. I applaud you for trying to better our world. I am going to post this on my Facebook page. I know a couple of people who might be interested in this.

  3. very insightful post Kebba, I never really thought about all the violence in the world in that manner. I am so glad that I met you through the UBC and I look forward to reading more of your posts 🙂
