Be Like Charlotte – Use the Web

There are no shortages of quotes available about peace.  Why bother reading quotes or using affirmations?  Words have power and eventually they affect our thoughts.  One of my favorite books is Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White.  Charlotte wrote affirmations for Wilbur in her web.  If you remember the story, those words changed how he felt about himself.  Positive quotes are good to read every day.  As affirmations, they help to change our thoughts.  

Be like Charlotte and use the web to share positive messages.

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which                                 we arrive at that goal.”                                                                                                                                                      -Martin Luther King, Jr.

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.”                -Mahatma Gandhi

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.”               -Jimi Hendrix

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”             -Dalai Lama

“Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.”                                                     -Buddha

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”              -Mother Teresa

“Avoid popularity if you would have peace.”                                                                                    -Abraham Lincoln

A Season for Nonviolence is a national 64-day educational, media, and grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities. Inspired by the 50th and 30th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this international event honors their vision for an empowered, nonviolent world.

Purpose Statement of the Association of Global New Thought that created the Season is:

  • Our purpose is to create an awareness of nonviolent principles and practices as
    a powerful way to heal, transform and empower our lives and communities.
  • Through an educational and community action campaign, we are honoring
    those who are using nonviolence to build a community that honors the dignity
    and worth of every human being.
  • We are demonstrating that every person can move the world in the direction
    of peace through their daily nonviolent choice and action.

From A Season for Nonviolence for Day 61:

Adult:
Thich Nhat Hanh wrote, “Practice watering seeds of joy and peace and not just seeds of anger and violence, and the elements of war in all of us will be transformed.” Today, make a choice to meet each experience with an intention for peace.
Teen:
Thich Nhat Hanh wrote,” Practice watering seeds of joy and peace and not just seeds of anger and violence, and the elements of war in all of us will be transformed.” If you focus on peace, joy, and love in your life, you will experience more of that. But if your mind is filled with negativity, it is hard to experience the good in life.
Child:
Ask your mom or dad to help you plant a seed in a little pot for a peace plant.
