DAY 1: When you discover that everyone is contained in you and you are contained in everyone, you have then realized the unity of life. You realize you are not just a person, you are a beneficial force. Wherever you go, wherever you live, those around you will benefit from your life. Even when one unassuming man or woman in a community has the courage to lead a nonviolent life, she will make her contribution, and she will slowly inspire others to make the same contribution, because human nature responds to such an example.
When we can say, "Whatever comes, I will not be afraid because the divine Self is within me," then this resoluteness and faith will enable us to work free from tension, agitation, and fear of defeat. The person who works in this way is at peace, because he or she is not anxious about results.
Today: I will light a candle to symbolize my commitment to accept the courage to practice 64 Ways of living nonviolently.
