It has been said that “love is the answer, whatever the question”.  Add love to solve stress, tensions, and conflicts.  Today, on the 34th day of the Season for NonViolence (SNV), the trait we focus on is LOVE.  Paul, in his letter to the Corinthians, was comparing the finest traits a person can have.  He summarized:

“And now abide faith,

hope, love, these three; 

but the greatest of these is love.”

–1 Cor 13:13 (NKJV)

Here is AGNT’s contemplation for this day:

DAY 34 Mar. 4: The thought for today is LOVE.  Gandhi wrote,

“Nonviolence is based on the assumption that human nature … unfailingly responds to the advances of love.”

All the great texts encourage us to “love your enemy.”  The ancients understood that this is where the creative energy comes from.  An enemy does not have to be life-threatening or violent; an enemy can just be a thought that gets us to look at something in a different way.   Consider the power of befriending someone you previously thought was an “enemy”.  In a conflict, rather than putting your energy toward winning, see what channeling that energy toward a loving, nonviolent solution can accomplish.

Today:  I will focus on what I can find to love in the person I like the least. As I meet people during the day, I will reflect on how love can enhance the relationship.
