The Thought for Today is CARING

DAY 4 Feb. 2: The thought for today is CARING.

According to Peter McWilliams “Nonviolence toward the self is caring for oneself. Self love is a crowning sense of self worth; it is what the Greeks call reverence for the self.”

When I regard my life as a trust, I realize that the first resource I have to take care of is my own body. This can be startling! 

Even my body is not really my own – it belongs to life, and it is my responsibility to take care of it. Taking care of it is a demonstration of nonviolence.

Today: I will make a list of at least five ways that I can take care of myself, physically and/or mentally, and I will honor that list today through demonstration.
