|The events of recent history have reminded us about the preciousness of life and the very real value of compassion, empathy, and generosity.
When we attune to these 'higher values' -- or 'the better angels of our nature', as Abraham Lincoln said -- we're moved to take constructive, positive actions in our own lives each day to promote and support our deepest values and priorities.
What's more, both spiritual traditions and horizon-walking scientists suggest that these 'higher vibration' values and states of being ripple outward and attract 'like vibration' people and experiences to us.
In this spirit, and because we believe that every person, every action, and every thought can make a difference, we'd like to invite you to participate in a Season of Positive Action.
Our Season of Positive Action is inspired by the principles promoted by the Season of Nonviolence, which was itself inspired by the visions of Mahatma Gandhi and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Each year, the Season of Nonviolence begins on January 30 and continues for 64 days, during which people participate privately and voluntarily by engaging in activities such as honest communication, compassion, tolerance, courage, listening and generosity of spirit.
Whether you practice the Season of Nonviolence ideals at the beginning of each year, or start mid-year or later, be sure that it's always an ideal time to renew our dedication to the principles of and responsibilities related to nourishing our connection to Spirit and one another.
Anything that helps us to cherish our most satisfying responsibilities as co-creators of our communities and our experience is a worth our devotion.
But why stop with 64 days?
Why not look at launching a year-long season that begins with the Season of Nonviolence and continues right on through the year in an enduring Season of Positive Action?
That journey can begin with one step, day by day.
