Who wouldn’t want to live in a world where no one shot another person in anger? Who wouldn’t want a world where everyone got along, and social justice wasn’t even a question? Here we are at Day 2 of the Season for NonViolence (SNV), the 16th annual celebration by the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT) for people who would like to bring that nonviolent world into being.
Each day during the SNV, I am posting the thought for the day from AGNT. I will also be expanding on the meanings of the Season. Here is AGNT’s Day 2 meditation:
DAY 2, Jan. 31: The thought for today is SMILING. Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh said
“If, in our daily life, we can smile…not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.”
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship and nonviolence. A smile not only improves our looks, it improves our outlook, and when our outlook improves, it is much easier to be at peace.
Today: I will share a sincere smile with everyone I meet, knowing that my smile contributes to peace.
