Congratulations to everyone who read and considered even one of the 64 qualities put forth in this 16th Annual Season for NonViolence (SNV). Did you become more aware of your own traits and feelings? Did you find yourself doing anything differently? Did you write in your journal, or start a new one? Were you in any way inspired, as Ghandi suggested, to be the peace you want to see? Did you notice the World changing? Please send your thoughts; we would like your feedback.
In fact, the World made a number of changes over the last 64 days, including the continuation of the Arab Spring, the rise of China’s first President who began in poverty, and the approval by the UN General Assembly of the Arms Trade Treaty. Did these things happen because of changing consciousness?
Your thoughts and prayers help. Daily, ask yourself, “[H]ow can I be at peace? And how can I be the change I want to see?” And always hold the vision of a nonviolent World, with a thriving, sustainable peace.
Here now is AGNT’s thought and prayer for the closing of the Season for NonViolence:
CLOSING Apr. 4: Every day, I join others in this prayer for World Peace:
With each kind thought,
each choice for nonviolence,
we plant a seed that shall bloom
to bring forth rich fruit in its Season.
Together, friend, we till the soil and
plant the seeds that all creation may
sing for joy and dance in the
Garden of Peace.
May our prayers and practices
during this Season be but the beginning
of a new culture of peace, security and
joy that shall endure unto our
children’s children’s children.
Amen/And so it is.
