This is the 18th annual King, Gandhi, Chavez season for nonviolence. The season begins January 30 and ends April 4. The dates marks the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi, Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King, Jr. January 30, 1948 is the date Gandhi died, April 4, 1963 is the day Martin Luther King, Jr. and Cesar Chavez passed on April 23, 1993.
We have an opportunity for 64-days to focus on demonstrating nonviolence. We also have an opportunity to honor the peace visions of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cesar Chavez.
We know that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal and transform our lives, our communities and the world. During this season I had an opportunity to reflect on the nonviolence and what it means to me. The word peace kept coming up. The essence of peace is so multi-faceted… multi-dimensional… multi directional… multi-cultural.
Peace can’t be fenced in…boxed or locked in…peace is there when you need it. Regardless of what’s going on around you…regardless of what you see…peace is as close as our breath…because peace is a personal choice.
Peace hangs out on a higher vibration…The vibration of peace is high…you can feel it when you say it…
P E A C E…P e a c e…can you feel the vibration?
